that makes one of us
Caught this little gem on Reddit today. Now if only wolves were allowed IN the weight room.

If you want to see Michigan-Florida in the Gator Bowl, let them know on their official Facebook poll:
While this poll is not a definitive solution for the matchup, it might influence their decision... maybe?
This posting is a refutation of numerous poster's assertions that RR has taken UM's recruiting efforts down the drain. By the Rival's site(others rank UM differently), UM currently holds commitments from 3 four-stars and 10 three-stars.
Looking at the rankings of some teams in the fifteen or so, and comparing what UM still has on the board, as well as those of the other teams, UM has a decent to good shot at moving into that top fifteen and possibly into the top ten.
Part of the reason UM is ranked out of the top 25 right now is the numbers. We currently have 13 commits, the same as Auburn(at #24 with 4 four-stars and 9 three-stars). The next lowest commit totals ahead of us is Oregon(15 commits), Georgia and USC(16 commits), a handful of others at 17, and the rest who are close to or above 20 commits. Out of the teams in front of us up to the #10 ranking, only one has a five-star commit(USC).
The idea that RR is only recruiting three-stars is out there, and one of the major reasons that people believe we aren't getting the recruits we used to. Out of the teams ahead of us up to the tOSU(#7), only 6 teams have less three-stars committed(and one of those has 21 three-stars, ranked at #17 with only 4 four-stars).
Going by the player prospects, and those we have a good shot at getting, I count 7-9 four-star prospects and a handful of three-star prospects. Assuming that we gain commitments from the low end of the four-star prospect pool, and that we fill out the rest of the class with three star prospects, that will leave us with 10-12 four-star commits and around 13-15 three-star commits for a total of around 24-25 commits.
Now, looking at the teams ahead of us in the recruiting rankings, and assuming the general trend for their classes continues, we should place firmly in the top 15 with a decent to good chance of cracking the top ten. That is far removed from being a weak recruiting class, like some want to intimate in their postings.
Some of you will, no doubt, talk about us not really having anyone until they sign. Others will claim we don't have anyone until they are enrolled and on campus. And, your right, but neither do those other teams actually have anyone until they are enrolled at the school they've chosen.
He sort of went, we speculated and then I could not find anything else regarding the reason. I assume he didn't go to check on a rumor that Dowling might consider us or to share offensive philosophy considering there is a possible bowl match up looming. Florida may be out an OC soon (if you read the posts) which was the most concerning. Any update would be appreciated.
This one had it all...anger...denial....Brian fed up....Brian asking for apologies....Stand Edwards asking for apologies...even 45 seconds of basketball talk....and probably more opinion than we've gotten from Brian since at least Monday. I won't go so far as to say it's juicy, but you can tell there's a lot of emotions out there this week.

Below is an article discussing the possibility of Harbaugh leaving Stanford for Michigan. I am NOT posting it for a coaching change ("CC") discussion - the article contains NO information, just opinion from some San Fransisco Examiner writer.
I am posting it because I think that the inaccuracies are hysterical:
1. Our AD is named David Barron. I hope that this Barron dude is more decisive than Brandon. (/s)
2. This Barron, our AD, was a former Michigan QB.
3. RR had a top 10 recruiting class.
4. We were widely expected to contend to win the B10 this year. Really? By whom? We didn't even start the season ranked.
Just thought that this was entertaining. If their current gigs don't work out, Sharp, Henning, Rosenberg and company could probably get jobs at the SF Examiner - their lack of interest in the facts would fit in great there.
