The nutty Michigan coverage isn't so much about Harbaugh as it is a signal to the Big Ten that Fox wants to party.
Mattison is a beast. Why couldnt we get a D coordinator like him when RR was there? What was the problem? I mean how did we stoop to the level of GERG when guys like Mattison obviously would have come here? Want to see what opinions were out there.
I won't belabor the obvious, but the MGo Recruiting Board for 2011 still shows Hart as being a commit. It's one thing not to list Bellomy as a commit at QB, that happened 12 hours ago. But, really.
So why is the board even there, if no one is updating it. I know TomVH has way better things to do, like, actually talking to recruits and satisfying all of our collective needs for instantaneous info on Hokemania / Mattingmania. But surely someone else could be updating it, there would only be like 500 people who'd offer to do it if Brian/Tim/Tom asked.
RELATED QUESTION: Is anyone else finding that the recruiting updates now fuels an incessant need to hit F5 every 30 seconds for all 24 hours of the day, which we developed during the coaching search? After Feb. 2, what will cause me to keep F5'ing the website??? (Nothing basketball-related, surely.)
Last night I was trying to fill the MGoBlog-sized hole in my heart. I headed over to rivals to find out Mattison was (hide your kids, hide your wife, hide your husbands) snatchin' everybody up. As I was looking at the overrated recruiting rankings, I realized that no team in the B1G TEN currently has a 5 Star athlete committed. As for the conference as a whole, I am just wondering if this is the lowest ranked recruiting year.
I painfully watched the replay of that game on the Big Ten Network last night. The game sums up the Lloyd Carr years. The man could really assemble a team, but you just never felt that even with all that talent, they could win it all in a BCS type setting. One game, against comparable talent, for all the marbles. Watch the game. You are filled with fear that somehow Lloyd will figure out a way to come up just short, and I KNOW it's a replay and they win! The roster is just sick. Other than the Miami Hurricanes in 2001-2, I would argue that nobody has had more talent on a team. Seriously...
Henne, Hart, Edwards, Avant, Breaston, Branch, Crable, Long, Hall, Harris, Woodley, Woods, Watson, Burgess, Mundy.
We talk about the "big games" Michigan should win? Michigan lost to ND, Texas and Ohio State. You can argue that those were the 3 biggest games of the year. OSU was not rated. An unranked, 6-6 ND team. They gave Texas the game. They barely beat San Diego State, Minnesota and Purdue. Teams, as people on this board have said, we should always beat.
In watching that MSU game, if you could not use the internet, could you even name a player on the MSU roster who was worth noting? How in the hell is Michigan behind 27-10? Also, admit it or not, the game was determined on an offensive pass interference call (against MSU) that was on the opposite side of the field. Wow!
For me, reliving that game was not an instant classic, but more of an instant heartache. It conjures up what should have been. I like Brady Hoke. I believe everyone deserves a chance and I hope he excels. I love his passion for UM. I just hope he lives up to the expectations of those who believe M should compete for a title. A National Title. I'm sick of hearing about the SEC.
