Football Display Case
i find this extremely interesting
i may have altered the title
i thought this was america
like I said on twitter: that was almost as intense as Iowa NIT games
...talks about how UConn hasn't been in contact and how they're out. (HT: UMHoops)
Jalen, Burke, and Simmons.
Mike Hart the heavy favorite in the trolling competition
just what the Pistons need: a third string center. Joe Dumars was replaced by a mean ol' alien a few years back you guys.
this would be a close approximation of hypothetical graduation speech
no you guys they're just super pumped about COLLLLLLLLLLLLEGE
not a surprise
premature congrats. One thing we can be sure of: he'll take fewer asinine penalties than Abdelkader
Thanks to ugly transitions between Fulmer/Kiffin/Dooley/Davis, Tennessee is on the edge of APR penalties for football.
i approve of this message
It's nice to see someone turn their passion into a paying gig. Well deserved.
When your team is winning, be ready to be tough, because winning can make you soft. On the other hand, when your team is losing, stick by them. Keep believing. -Bo
Tremendous is a great site that has provided us with great information, and it was likely only a matter of time before they moved up in the world. Like others, I would read the site often, so that does create a space where I may have to face my fears and do some actual work.
Excellent opportunity, I would imagine, and congratulations to him.

I didn't want to be that asshole and post a thread asking why they weren't updating the site. Timing sucks, this close to signing day and all, but good for them.

Wish Brian had hired him
I mean, it's great for him. He certainly deserves it. I'm going to miss visiting his site though.

So, MGoBlog sends TomVH to ESPN, Tim to Rivals, and Tremendous (I don't think he'd have had as much success with his site without MGoBlog) to 247. It seems to me that Ace may be on his way to Scout sometime soon.
Yeah, Ace could eventually become Scout's version of Sam Webb.
Isn't Sam Webb Scout's version of Sam Webb?
Not anymore. Well, maybe?
Florida Wolverines have dreadlocks...
Poor Ace would have to work for Tom Beaver.
Not that I loved Rich Rod less, but that I loved Michigan more.
I think Brian said that Scout is trying to phase out Tom Beaver, which would be a step in a positive direction for them...
Twitter - Recruiting Update: June 17
So what happens to Mgobluegr now? He was good at contacting recruits and writing up interviews
Thanks for the kind words, I will also be moving over to 247 sports with Steve as well. As some of you may remember, I started writing about recruiting here and there is no way I would be where I am today without this amazing site.
I don't need to keep that a secret anymore. Hey guys, tremendous to 247
Follow me on Twitter @gfraley05
So are you saying he was a silent commit to 247 and we knew nothing about it? Dammit man. We need a meta-recruiting site, which will track the recruiting of the various recruiting services.
Wait until Urban gets a hold of him. He'll flip to OSU's 247 site before NSD.
I am being Twitters
Urban had already offered him...and he wanted to commit to tOSU's 247 site...but the offer was non-commitable.
Ask any tOSU 247 reader.
If the haters don't hate you then you're doing something wrong. - David Cone
NOT MAGNUS?!?!? I, for one, am shocked SHOCKED at their oversight.
or uh, Duder, or El Duderino if you're not into the whole brevity thing.
Three of your last four comments on MGoBlog have been about me, and they've all been unprompted.
Have been about his dudeness
Damn Magnus, you even put down the people that worship you. That's probably why I've always pictured you having the grumpy cat face.
I don't know anyone who worships me, and I'm not sure what you're referencing when you say I "put them down."
Just trying to give voice to the voiceless here. You hammer some high school kids' ability to play football under the assumption that you are in some way an "expert of analysis" and you aren't. That much is clear.
I am just trying to let those who look over MGoBlog (quite a few people) that you are in no way an expert of anything. You know, since you don't let that be known to them.
If I had a mechanic look over my car I would assume he is in some way qualified to tell me that it is a piece of shit. You do so without letting your customer know and under the assumption that you are and I find that to be a slimy thing to do.
I have never claimed to be an expert, and I never will.
That's really all I have to say. There's no point in getting into an argument with you.
I am not arguing with you. I am calling your on the side, part time hobby of ripping high school kids a disgrace. You can voice your opinion, but I will just be there to say that it is truly baseless and that it holds no water because your opinion on recruit analysis is literally as valuable as a Jersey toll booth operators opinion about ACL reconstruction.
So if a kid comes on here and finds out that the MGoBlog community thinks he is a lesser recruit because one time Magnus claimed he didnt have good knee bend I will be there to pat him on the back and say "It's ok, guy. That Magnus doesn't know shit. No literally. He has no fucking clue what he is saying about analysis. He isn't even paid! I know right? He rips high school kids like you - who work really hard ot get betterevery day - based on no knowledge whatsoever in his spare time!! It is crazy. I know. Yea he has to be fat. I know."
Praise is the only thing a lot of these guys ever hear, so what's it matter that Magnus gives them a little criticism? On TTB he states that he's a high school coach, emphasizing on LB's and DL, which doesn't mean he's an expert, but he probably has a more technical understanding than a lot of us do.
I for one, appreciate his views on a lot of players. My only complaint is, I wish he posted more content, but it's his hobby/side job so I understand. The way he conducts himself reminds me a lot of my old DL coach in high school, who would tell you how it is.
P.S. - Coach Coombs, is that you?
I'm unfortunately very late to the game but that's enough, Dude. Stop the personal attacks. Its my one true hot-button issue and I'll dock you all the points if you insist on hammering away at Magnus, a well-respected contributor of actual content to the site.
Disgruntled former moderator. I got a lot of problems with you people!
I smell an MGoThrowdown brewin'
I'm sorry to disappoint you.
Pure speculation on my part re: why Tremendous was hired/mysteriously disappeared from MGoBlog, but philosophically I don't think he meshed. He's very good at making direct contact with recruits and gaining their trust and writing up interviews but the blog seems to take a more wholistic view of the recruiting process. As such we've seen less interviews with potential recruits from Ace lately. Just a thought.
However props to this guy, he really climbed the ladder from nowhere.
I don't think it's fair to compare Ace with Tremendous
Ace is more of an information gatherer than what Tremendous did.
Tremendous did interviews and direct contact. For the most part, Ace takes information from elsewhere and relays it to us.
Wow, this sucks. That was my second favorite Michigan site behind mgoblog. I'm dissappointed but they deserve it and 247 will be a lot better because of these guys.
Everyone should take this as a reminder to click on a few ads here on MgoBlog. The ad click revenue is how Brian is able to make a few bucks and keep this site free!
I guess I need to get twitter and harass 17 and 18 year olds to get a new job
Bears Beets Battlestar Galactica
I hope he finishes the top 10 for 2014, but at least now we know why the site was not updating.
Thanks guys. This would have never happened if Brian hadn't interviewed me for the job that Ace deservedly got. It was the motivation I needed.
Recruit Files: Robert Foster
I've enjoyed the content on your site.
Good luck with this new job.
Whelp, you bettering yourself just ruined my day. Think about that.
So did you work on Tremendous as your full-time job or did you just do it on the side while working somewhere else? Or did you not have a job and basically just created one for yourself out of thing air? Curious. Either way, very impressive, but if it's the latter I'm really impressed.
Congratulations on the new job!
Shut up hater
Then goes trolling on other sites for info and ideas to put on his blog
Where are you going with this?
Steve.. You were my go to free resource man. Sadly the competition snatched you up. I understand the decision but will miss the creativity and latitude you gave recruits. Breaking down their own film for you etc. Sad day for me man.
Its called a royale with cheese
To repeat what seems is the general consensus, Am happy for you, but sad for the rest of us. Good Luck and Fair Winds.
