I thought this (Metellus winning the DB race) was the most surprising tidbit. It means he beat some fast dudes (David Long and Ambry Thomas, among others).

The south is twisted a certain way, so we should expect its schools to be, too. Check out "American Nations" or any similar book for some background.

Obviously not every high-level recruit gets in trouble, and the coaches of Duke, Kansas, and Kentucky have some coaching ability, but Jackson and guys like him are one (just one ... not the only one) reason that Michigan won't be a Top Five / Top Ten basketball any time soon. (Yes, I think "Coach K" belongs in the same slimy category as Self and Calipari, though maybe not to the same degree.)
Jackson's educational environment past 9th grade or so is almost humorous. I don't blame him or his family, but he's made a mockery of "schooling."

There's a lot of circumstantial evidence that some schools are already at (or approaching) the stage you're describing. Has your interest already waned?

P. J. Fleck, after he gets fired from Minnesota in 2022, moves down to Northern Illinois (his alma mater), and leads them to several MAC championships and the odd BCS bid.

I put it on broccoli (which I cook with some lemon and lime juice).

Joe Dumars chose him rather than Trey Burke a few years ago, leading many here to "shake their fist" at Dumars.
On that pick, at least, history has judged Joe positively.

Lloyd's coaching tree: It lives! (I think we can count this.)
Congratulations to Adam. The 49ers could use some UMich magic.

That guy's pile (enviable, I must say) and lifestyle are the collective aspiration of many a Sparty. What a cheeseball!

As others have said, thanks!
Oh, and Wausau's finest spells her last name "Mayer." :)

Albert once exposed his private parts:
Yes, context is everything, but I don't feel bad smearing that jackass after he tried to hurt Michigan's recruiting.

Braylon has acted like a buffoon a few times in the past. He was annoying with the #1 jersey and also somewhat with his younger half-brothers (who didn't get UMich offers).
I thought he sounded pretty thoughtful at this year's Signing of the Stars, though, and making effort to finish school is commendable.

Very thoughtful reply ... thanks.

As far as Kyrie is concerned, I'm with MGrowOld's first point (an oblique statement on the current political environment).

It *is* nice, but it would be even nicer if the resources (such as they are) were distributed among a bunch of disadvantaged superfans and not just a few (or one). I felt the same way when all the Larry Prout threads were popping up here.

Well, unless they got Gisele to play herself and, you know ...
|1 week 3 days ago||choices||
Morris, Shallman, and Sypniewski choices are two Mid-American schools and what amounts to the Northwestern of the SEC (and then some). Very interesting ... in another recent post I wondered what was avaiable to the UMich grad-transferers.

We'll see. Two of the losses (close ones, of course) were to teams with arguably more overall talent (OSU, FSU) or at least not as many weak spots as UM.
Suppose they'd finished 12-1 (not a huge reach) and then gotten hammered by Clemson/Alabama (considering what happened to OSU). Would you feel the same?
Also, stating the obvious, the focus here is on a single class of players. You'd need to look at the other three classes (junior, sophomore, and freshman equivalents), too.

P. J. is a stuffed shirt compared to Harbaugh. The parallels are limited.

Both made me think "PJ's feminine equivalent." Nice-looking, a little cheesy, etc.

That's an nteresting collection of players. Was that the final heat or just one of many? Or, did they just generally agree on the fastest guys and have them race?
I wouldn't have expected Nordin to be in the race, but I don't know much about his background.

Yes -- they did. One of Rhett Rod's friends from that era will be playing football (on scholarship) at Arizona.
|1 week 6 days ago||ND||
Except for maybe one thing, file this under WTF.
That one thing: Some people (possibly including Gervin and his parents) are *really* enamored of private schools.
I guess I can see where playing time would be an issue, too.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||football||
It's a never-ending optimization problem. Larry Foote has alluded to it. Football is a nasty game and guys like Richie Incognito (a cretin by any measure) excel at it. Years ago Drew Lane of Detroit's WRIF hypothesized that his alma mater's football wins were positively correlated with the offseason arrest tally.

I hope Jason has a good legal team.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||suggestion for the OP||
In case you haven't already done so, think about this abstractly. What does your daughter want in her living environment? What would she rather avoid?
Echoing others, the location, price, and condition of the unit are what would be important here. High rises aren't the same as houses, but the approach to both should be the same.

I'd sure like it more if they cut out 99% of the fake laughter (which sports fan focus groups must apparently *love* or all the dumbass pregame shows wouldn't have so much of it).

Fun read as usual, RYG. For those interested, daughter of Carlitos at UM:
Apples don't generally fall too far from the tree!
|2 weeks 4 days ago||options||
Does anyone know the details of how the transfer process starts for these guys (Morris, Dawson, Shallman, et al.)? Do they approach the schools? Other way around?
I wonder how many options they had.

IMO the Slippery Rock gimmick was old by the early '90s. Maybe before that.
