Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.

|1 day 8 hours ago||This is why I wondered about||
This is why I wondered about some of the staff decisions. Lots of pro guys and not a lot ohio ties.
|1 day 10 hours ago||So if we have another 7-8 win||
So if we have another 7-8 win season it's going to another 18 months of mediocre recruiting? Great.

Why did we hire zordich then? Very strange to struggle so bad there.

Try 11 games a year. MSU now is what Michigan was for most of the 90's save 97.
|1 day 10 hours ago||You hear almost nothing about||
You hear almost nothing about the recruiting abilities of our DB coaches. Obviously they have the Pro pedigrees but that doesn't seem to mean much without the recruiting relationships.

No. It's frankly funny how people will see what they want to see.

that so perfectly encapsulates the stupidity of the NCAA.
|4 days 20 hours ago||Thats about where I have them||
Thats about where I have them but not with a win over Sparty. We've been on the decline flor a decade so it won't change overnight. It's likely going to a long road back.

|1 week 1 day ago||That doesn't mean they were||
That doesn't mean they were talented enough to be good college players. Lots of highly rated kids can't play. Hoke seems to have had more than his share of misses.
|1 week 1 day ago||Well there is clearly||
Well there is clearly evidence that Hoke was bad at identifying talent in addition to being horrible at developing it.

|1 week 2 days ago||Cool video||
I wasn't that excited about Ruddock when the rumors first started because Iowa had a crappy offense and they seemed to want to move on from a 5th year senior starter which seemed odd if he was any good. But after reading all the reports I was more bullish on him and convinced that Iowa was just being Iowa in letting him go.
After watching that video I'm even more encouraged, as well as being struck by the fact that is just so damn difficult to play QB at the highest levels.
In any event I think Ruddock raises the floor to 7 wins and he makes 9 wins more likely than it would have been otherwise.

|1 week 3 days ago||Wintson would be huge for many reasons||
1) PG is a big time need,
2) Always good to get talented kids to stay in state,
3) Keep him away from Sparty.
4) Keep the recuriting momentum rolling.
Hope it happens soon!

Cue the Freep story on Harbaugh program being out of control.
|1 week 4 days ago||Bullshit||
Webber was at the very center of the Ed Martin scandal and Martin's involvement with Michigan grew exponentially during the Fab Five era. Then Webber refused to cooperate which caused the stain of the investigation to last years longer then it would have otherwise. Oh and then of course, Webber committed a felony by lying about it all. Don't act like Webber did not tarnish the university in a major major way.
|1 week 4 days ago||Chris Webb was convicted of lying under oath||
after all. He has zero credibility in my book.
|1 week 4 days ago||No Webber also probably means||
no Ed Martin scandal, no probation, no ten years of terribleness, etc. And yes I realize that other players after Webber took money from Martin, but Ed's invovlement in the program increased becasue of Webber and the Fab Five.
Don't get me wrong, I loved watching the Fab Five, but it is a tarnished legacy for good reason.
|1 week 4 days ago||Webber still sounding like an ass||
what else is new?
|1 week 4 days ago||Too bad||
I don't think he would have started over Lyons, but senior depth is always nice to have. Next man up!
|1 week 4 days ago||Not surprising||
They have 4 11-win seasons in the last 5 and back to back major bowl wins. Two things Michigan has never done in their entire history. It amazes me that people still consider them little brother. Little brother has been kicking our ass for almost a decade and that will not change overnight.
|1 week 4 days ago||I couldn't agree more. One of||
I couldn't agree more. One of the worst failings of the Hoke era is speed on offense.
|1 week 5 days ago||Would you rather develop kids||
or win games? Sure their is some correlation, but I would take the wins every time.
