stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly
rundown of Michigan's riser
needs moar usage
so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
If you're gonna go please be in the first round.
another delightful side effect of a 14 team conference
Info is behind the paywall. That is his biggest offer to date and I'm sure, as of now, he is going to hold them in high regard. Thoughts?
I'd be stunned if he goes anywhere but Michigan.
I guess I should feel awful about that.

I am drunk, or I wouldn't be talking to you.
While this is interesting information, I'm not sure if it needs it's own thread.
many points do you need to start a thread? I saw this a few hours ago but could not make a new thread.
You are on double secret probation so you are not allowed to start posts.
It's gonna be a while before the site will let you post anything.
I think it's really funny that you're replying to a comment that explicitly says this probably should not have been its own thread specifically to ask about starting threads about this information.
are we are supposed to freak out/complain when other elite programs offer/steal our recruits, or complain when our recruits don't have offers from other elite programs? I forgot.
Consider yourself reminded.
Disgruntled former moderator. I got a lot of problems with you people!
Around these here parts, we freak out and complain about everything. You should not forget this.
I guess I'll just stop posting recruiting info then. I was actually writing a detailed piece on Jaleel Johnson because I have a friend who talks with him quite a bit but I'll just keep these things to myself from now on.
Fuck! I remember you saying something about Jaleel a couple days ago and how you had some inside there. Just post the info.
While I have not posted much on this site, one thing I do know from reading much of the content, is that people do enjoy pulling each others proverbial chains here. I would just encourage you to reply with your own witty banter, and to also keep the information coming. I would be interested in your J. Johnson info as would others I am sure. Next time, just combine them if you are able and you can avoid those that enjoy rattling your cage.

I think Michigan is his biggest offer to date, not Oklahoma.

Michigan is always the biggest offer!
P.S. Long time reader and only recently made an account but while posting I have admired your avatar!
Somewhere Roll Damn Tide is lurking...
He has been quoted saying that he wants to get as many offers as possible. In the end I hope he commits to us.

should play in a conference that has 12 teams

Not sure what biggest offer means. I would put Michigan's offer in the same class as Oklahoma.
I think the real news is, with the type of offers he is getting. He is for sure a 4 star prospect and might even be a 5.
Go Blue Big Fella. Your parents will be able to see every home game live.
He's not going to reach 5 star status. Also, OU is his biggest offer. Michigan has been pretty bad the last 3 years and it's been a very long time since M has won a BCS game. OU has been one of the best programs of the last decade and sends players to the NFL (and they're taken early) regulary. Michigan is not on par with OU right now.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. There's no doubt that RJS sees a Michigan offer as greater than an Oklahoma offer.
Besides, the Big 12 has been garbage for the last few years. Teams in the B12 are consistently overrated. When Texas is the only game you have to get up for each year, it's not tough to win 10+ games.
If the Big12 has been garbage then what would you call the BigTen? Nuclear waste perhaps? OU is a storied program with tradition and right now they are leaps and bounds ahead of Michigan. This isn't opinion it is fact. Players drafted, rankings, BCS bowl games, consistently making a run at the MNC every year. It doesn't matter if you think the Big12 is weak because they get an automatic bid and their OSU is making strides in becoming a solid program along with the sleeping giant TAMU. Not too different from the BigTen.
So you think those years when Kansas and Missouri were both Top 5 teams, those rankings were justified?
You're doing one helluva job acting like a gordita douche supreme, then turning around and labling everyone else that calls you on it a bunch of idiots living in fantasyland where Michigan sucks.
And I couldn't disagree more about the Big 12. That's why our 7-5 Iowa beat 10-2 Missouri, 6-6 Illinois pounded 7-5 Baylor 38-14, and 7-5 NW lost to a 7-5 TT by a touchdown while missing what the Big Ten coaches regarded as the Big Ten's best quarterback. Two of the games occured in Texas, the heart of Big 12 country, and one in Zona, relatively neutral territory. Iowa also beat ISU 35-7 and Illinois lost to Mizzou 23-13 in non-conference play.
So, no, my facts do not support your garbage claim about the Big Ten being shitty. I would take the Big Ten against the Big Twelve almost any year.
And thanks for pointing out OU has had success with Bob Stoops. Woo.
Intensity is a lot of guys that run fast.
Not to mention that OU makes it to a ton of BCS bowls because they beat up on a weak B12 and then lose every BCS bowl unless they play UConn. They've lost BCS bowls to such super powers as WVU and Boise St, not terrible programs, but you're not really a "BCS" calibur team when you routinely lose to the worst team that qualified for a BCS bowl.
No doubt Oklahoma is a big time program, but are they bigger than Michigan? I doubt it. They've had some solid years over 8 or so years, but nothing about Oklahoma football is better than Michigan.
But in all seriousness Larry Harrison, do yourself a favor and compare the teams in the Big Ten and the Big 12 side by side (obviously include Nebraska in the Big Ten now) and tell me which is the better conference.
OSU, Iowa, Wisconsin, Nebraska and Penn State (I won't even include UM for bias purposes) is far better than OU, UT, Mizzou, TAMU and OK St.
Also - we'll see how these conferences look 5 years from now. The amount of money the Big 10 makes compared to the Big 12 (minus Texas) is crazy and that will start to show very soon. There's a reason Nebraska and Mizzou were begging to get into the Big Ten and why Colorado left for a much worse geographical fit. No one wants to be in the Big 12.
Why are you here if you love the big 12 so much? Yes the last 3 years have been hard to stomach but very few programs have the history and tradition of winning that Michigan has on top of the academics. Michigan is his biggest offer. GO BLUE!!!
Forget about the curveball Ricky. Give him the heater...
I seriously considered calling the mental hospital at, "sleeping giant TAMU"
There's no doubt that RJS sees a Michigan offer as greater than an Oklahoma offer.
Funny you should mention that...he uh...kinda said the exact opposite in his Scout interview. Maybe he's just emotional right now.
Twitter // Recruiting Work// Email
Yeah, I just heard the same thing from a buddy. People on this site can't handle Michigan playing second fiddle in regards to anything. Going through life delusional could be fun, though.
Don't take my reply out of context. I don't think Michigan's a worse offer than Oklahoma, quite the opposite. I'm just letting people know what RJS said in the interview, that they're his number 1 right now. Take it FWIW
Referring to an entire collective of people in a superior and insolent tone must be fun as well.
Take it down a notch fella; it seems you're relatively new around here. Perhaps a bit of perspective is indicated. You note that the past three years were something akin to nuclear waste in the B10 and you are correct, Michigan has been terrible. That said, it is possible that programs, elite programs are not judged upon a mere three years.
Most wins in college football history (884)
Highest all-time winning percentage in college football history (.735)
The most winning seasons (112)
The most undefeated seasons of teams currently competing in Division I-A/FBS (23)
One of only three schools with a winning record against every Division I-A/FBS conference
Tradition, Big House, Woodson, Brady, etc.
RJS may feel really great about an Oklahoma offer but, to quote one Brady Hoke "this is Michigan, for God's sakes".
If the haters don't hate you then you're doing something wrong. - David Cone
Well, if he ends up choosing Oklahoma over Michigan, I'll eat crow. Otherwise, it's just lip service.
Well, he did say that OU is his #1 right now.
Twitter - Recruiting Update: May 20
I'm kind of a big deal in Bolivia.
Your creativity knows no bounds.
On another note, were you user Adamum5 at one time?
I went back couple weeks ago to that awesome thread were we exposed Adamum5. It seems like he deleted his twitter and has not been back on the board since.
If you search Adamum05 it gives his new name...MichMan055...priceless.
Personally I am glad to see larry Harrison has been able to take his hand off himself and make a cameo here at MGoBlog.
Other than that I'm not sure what exactly OU has done lately besides lose bowl games to bad teams and underachieve year after year. I guess beating UConn is impressive though. Heck even our sorry D did better than that mighty OU D did against UConn.
I think they have the most BCS bowl appearances since the creation of that silly format. Maybe it is a sign they are overrated or that the Big 12 is trash? It also should fairly be taken as a sign that they are really good though too.
"because character wins in life and character wins on the football field....." 1-11-11
You're actually right. This is his biggest offer and he even says so. Not only that but he says that they are #1 on his list. Don't let these assholes get you down. I've enjoyed some of your sane posts and hope you continue posting.
F.Y.I: Anything posted that doesn't exalt all mighty Michigan will get you flack. It's true most of the time but people are stupid.
p.s Points don't count so don't worry about the negs. Like someone else said, "it's like shootin' blanks".
Apparently you missed a few days ago where RJS said he was fishing for offers now.....
He's likely to tell every team they're his #1 after they offer.
Yeah, please don't encourage LarryHarri. I have yet to enjoy his posts. If I wanted a Scout membership, I'd just pay a few bucks a month.
Regurgitating Scout info and then being an asshole about it is just so....asshole-ish?
What makes OU a "bigger" offer? Do they have a better tradition, program, academics, facilities, stadium?
Or is it just because Michigan has been down for 3 years.
Not being an asshole Im just curious.
some of your sane posts
Like all the ones where he steals info, word for word, from the Scout premium boards?
When have I done that? Seriously, most of my info comes from friends.
Please post evidence that I have done so. I haven't. There is a lot of free info out there and most of the time I post things that are headlines and the rest is behind a paywall. Apparently you can't read, asshat.
