I guess Ash thinks he needs to make headlines to help elevate the profile of his program. This is probably true, but the way he's going about it is petty and alienating the top HS football program in his state.

I had a real good experience at cobblestone farm, though I don't recommend it if you're inviting more than 150 people.
The UM art museum is the best wedding venue I've attended around town. I imagine it's pretty pricy though. Those 2 farms on scio church look like real nice settings too.

OTOH, how do you take Hack over Cook?
|3 weeks 5 days ago||I will be surprised if Cook falls past New||
I will be surprised if Cook falls past New England. Unless he has Manziel-like substance abuse issues, being a dick doesn't justify falling this far in the draft.

Which is why Cook won't go #1, but top 10? Maybe. Point is, Winston had big personal issues, wasn't exactly a slam dunk #1 pick, yet the bucs still drafted him #1.
Cook is not going to fall too far.

I'm not a Connor Cook fan, but if James Winston can go #1 overall with all his issues, then I have hard time believing Cook's going to fall too far just because he's a dick and kinda "off".
Some team will take him early in the first.

Not the best effort on my part.

Yup, those are words that I spelled incorrectly.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||I re-watched the game from||
I re-watched the game from about midway through the 3rd qtr last night, and watched most of the plays in slow-mo constraiting on the o-line play. I thought just about everyone held up pretty well. They were blitzing a ton and the o-line generally picked it up really well. Byron Mone blew somebody up and I think there was one other play where someone got beat badly, but I noticed Ulzilio and Runyon both held up well. I'm definitely not an expert on the technical details of o-line play, and there were a lot of 2nd and 3rd team d-lineman playing, so take that for what it's worth.
Regardless, it made me feel a lot better about our offensive line in 2017.

Looks like a great pickup. Only nitpick is that he should learn to run with the ball in his left game a bit more.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||That was a different era for||
That was a different era for a number of reasons.
1. There are far fewer quality recruits coming out of the state of Michigan compared to 20 years ago.
2. Michigan spent a decade-plus in the basketball wilderness from about 1997-2009.
3. Michigan was clearly the top program in the state 20 years ago. That just isn't the case anymore no matter how much we want to believe it's true. Michigan will need to outperform MSU for a good 5-10 years to reverse perceptions again.
Beilein's not a top-notch recruiter, but he's done pretty well with the hand he was dealt.

Yup, pretty much. This is all you need to know:
" I don’t think it’s real fair, but it seems like the norm" says Spike's dad.
Nothing to see here. Just a clickbait article.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||Losing Giddens and Mitchell||
Losing Giddens and Mitchell hurt. Those guys were likely to be solid contributors down the road. If Matta was only losing Grandstaff and Harris, I doubt he'd lose too much sleep, but now he has serious depth issues. It'll probably help them land a couple decent grad transfers though.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||If Beilein's thinks Spike can||
If Beilein thinks Spike can no longer compete at a high level, then he will be doing nothing other than eating up a scholarship that could potentially be used on a grad transfer.
The mass freakout that half the board is having over this defies logic, but I guess the internet's gonna internet.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||Beilein's done the same thing||
Beilein's done the same thing in the past. You tell a college basketball player his future role is to ride the pine, and they'll typically walk.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||Yup, that's why Brundridge,||
Yup, that's why Brundridge, Christian, Smotztrch (sic) and others have transfered in the past. I'm guessing those conversations happened yesterday evening or this morning, so we should expect another 1-3 transfers today or tomorrow.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||The grad transfer rule is||
The grad transfer rule is probably the best thing the NCAA has done for the players in the last 20 years. So, of course, the coaches hate it.
Beilein's critique is partially accurate. It's not really about kids finding the right grad school, but it does give players who are not getting the type of exposure or playing time at their current school a chance to shine elsewhere. And for many it DOES give them a free year of grad school.

..but think of the children!!!
Jeesh. Such a transparently self serving position that only a few idiots are buying it. Plenty of other sports practice or compete over both winter and spring breaks. Why there should be an exception for only football doesn't make sense.
Where is this "think of the children" argument when every northern college baseball team is stuck in the south for 3 or 4 weeks in February and March?

Rutgers may be the least skilled Big Ten basketball team I've ever seen, but at least they try to play defense...

Michigan's pretty safe. They don't have to play great basketball to get to 11-7, and they'd be a lock at that point (a 9 or 10 seed). 10-8, they're still probably in. Crashingthedance has Wisconsin as one of the last 4 teams in (scratch that, now 6 to last team in), which gives you an idea how far Michigan would have to fall to play their way out of the tournament.

Right, tons of talent, but a bunch of low energy guys, so they look less talented than they are. Take Stone. The guy was a top 10 recruit. Doesn't even look like he wants to play and has done nothing.

They should just go to 20:
Big Ten South:
Texas, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Virginia, Maryland, Oklahoma, Rutgers, Penn State, Nebraska, North Carolina
Big Ten North:
Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, Northwestern, Iowa, Minnesota, Indiana, Purdue, Illinois, Wisconsin.
No crossover games.

I'm bullish on Chesson. I think he's more likely to be a 1st rounder next year than Butt. He looked like a dominant receiver against Florida. He always had NFL size and speed. Just needs to do that all next year, and he'll be a 1st rounder.
Unless Jabrill has a serious injury, I have a hard time believing he slips out of the 1st. He may not have a position, but he'll likely be the most talented athlete in whatever draft he declares. Someone will take him in the 1st, possibly early.
I suspect at least one o-lineman will get drafted. Possibly a few, but likely late rounders.

Yup, shockingly, MSU is not nearly as good without their NPOY candidate. They're still a top 5 team with him.
Also, Oakland has a pretty good team this year.
