The most interesting part of that article to me was that he has a 6'5" wingspan. I did not know that...

Thought you were saying you wanted to date us. I felt both special and a little bit weird. Updating makes more sense and more awesome than weird.

How does one sign up to be charity?

Why are you hyphenating Cheetos? You're freaking me out man.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||8||
there are 8 easy wins there. 8-4 is the worst case scenario. Football Outsiders can suck it.

That's a Michigan level DL. Expectations raised.

This is decidedly good news. Perhaps we should get used to this Final Four thing?

Is there any question Zack ends up coaching this team one day? I'm guessing he's back in Ann Arbor within the next 2 years as some sort of assistant. And it will be glorious.

It feels like most people are writing off VCU after the fact, but they were a scary matchup before the game. We played a heck of a game, it was far from a gimme.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||$250k||
you can spend a lot less than $250k, that's a myth. especially if you're Unilever. but it's still killer and a little surprising.

Griffey's career arc completely maps with stars from prior generations. If there is one clean supertar, it's him.

His strategy is only successful if it ends up being a net benefit.
Damon Webb is going to be a top 100 recruit nationally, so it's a shot to us and a plus to him.
Marshall is a good prospect, but we probably can do better. Meyer can definitely do better given his historical level of recruiting. Probably not a net benefit.
He's trying to screw with us, showing us what happens when we don't stay off his lawn. Good for him, but if he keeps it up it's going to hurt him in the long run...there are only 3-4 kids in Michigan worth it this year. I'm not sure Marshall is one of them.
If we're playing the "who can steal the better player from the other team's home state" game, it's going to be almost impossible for him to win that in the long term. Ohio is too deep and Michigan is too shallow...really MSU is going to end up being the loser here. As usual.

...since they only have 3 in-state recruits. Very surprised by that number, really very low...

Marketing guy at Adidas: Art design guy, give us a totally neato jersey for Michigan basketball.
Art design guy at Adidas: Super duper, how about yellow?
Marketing guy at Adidas: Yellow? Just yellow? Nothing else? How about the shoes?
Art design guy at Adidas: Yellow too. Just yellow!
Marketing guy at Adidas: Radical! Let's do it!
Art design guy at Adidsas: I'll have my 6th grade kid whip something up in power point and we'll send it to print!
Marketing guy at Adidas: Done and done, and I mean done.

Looks like he was committed to Auburn before decommitting about a month back...

I don't think Jim Delaney understands the definition of a "Test Market".
Or as the always correct Wikipedia would say:
A test market, in the field of business and marketing, is a geographic region or demographic group used to gauge the viability of a product or service in the mass market prior to a wide scale roll-out. The criteria used to judge the acceptability of a test market region or group include:
So in Delany's case, his rollout market must be the universe since he's already tested his product on all of the Earth people. For two years.
Well played Delaney, well played.
