Wow, you found us Jalopy. Welcome to NGS.

I registered here a while back. I was part of the Babyfan-Bitzburgh exodous and participated in the NFL Pick'em contest they had. I just never really took the time to learn how to navigate the site so I didn't post much.

Got ya. Well its fun here if we could get the new people to stay on and post. That's our biggest hurdle here. People think its slow so they leave and it never really picks up because no one wants to tough it out until the posters filter in.

Usually Saturdays are moving pretty well during the season. We have a few hang outs you can catch us in. Frat House, The Thread, and Blitz's Tavern are the three main ones. The Frat House is newly constructed this year so we will see how good it is come season time.

I will try to spread the word and see if there is any interest on getting people over here. I know a few people went to sportshoopla (including me) but there was a big tiff last week over the moderator they inserted and, well....long story short, Chief and I ended up getting banned for not accepting their rules. If someone could mention this site to the fellas over there I think a few might jump ship.

I can saunter on over when I get off work and stuff my fat face with ice cream.

MI Nightmare, TBBishop, Coyote57, jdwills126, Wolverine Pride. I know chief is already here and I think non will come over if we get good conversation going. Not sure where/if Windy will pop up but with school almost back in session I would think he will surface somewhere. I know he follows mgoblog but not sure if he ever posts there. Basically, anybody that is willing to talk Michigan football.

I would imagine anyone recruiting over there would need to ask via pm.  If not, I'd imagine you'd get banned from Sportshoopla too.

I'd also avoid asking maizeandblue09 too.  I'm thinking he may not appreciate it being the Mod and all that.

Could it be the extra girth around his weight he is sporting?

Coyote57 is the most likely to switch. MINightmare was active in the Spring but I haven't heard anything from him in a while. Bishop is very active on the Lions board but there doesn't seem to be a lot of crossover other than him. I will create an alternate ID and post a message on the Michigan board later this week. I don't expect it to last long (the message or the ID) but hopefully a few folks see it and try it out over here.

Rumor is Green has a sprained ankle and is expected to be out for a couple of weeks. I think Hoke is scheduled to speak to the media today and I'm sure the subject will come up. Word is that the 20 or so lbs he put on aren't all muscle. First, because that is impossible without PED's and second, because, well... let's just say stomach muscles don't grow that much.

Finally broke down and picked up Phil Steele's mag.   I used to get it as soon as it came out to help with fantasy football.   Since the demise of that over on CBS,... was really no need.

Well all I can say is blah.  I'm glad he didn't go back 10 years (which he seemed to do as if it has any bearing on the upcoming season).    I will say, I'm still disappointed to not see Michigan in his top 15 lists of units. 

Oh well, a couple more seasons and we'll be all over those lists.    CNA

So far sent PM's to Coyote57, non, WolverinePride,U-MMarauder and jdwills126. I tried to send one to MINightmare but SH wouldn't let me send one to him or he is refusing PM's.

Not sure where Nightmare went. He posted fairly often right after CBS shut down but he has been silent for a few months.

'14 LB Jared Wangler commits to Michigan. I think this was a no-brainer once he received the offer. Obviously a legacy, he will join his sister and brother (walk-on WR) in AA.

I like the pickup but I am not sure if he'll grow into a LB at college level, he could always contribute on special teams though.

With a Runyan and a Wangler in the fold, can a Wheatley (or two) be far behind?
