|1 week 1 day ago||Let's hope the players||
will have the same passion.
|1 week 4 days ago||This much we do know||
Duke's academic standing is as good if not better than Michigan. Yet they are able to recruit to be in the top ten almost every season.
Publishing excuses for Michigan's failures this year is not helpful. The players failed as did the coaching staff in coaching and recruiting. We need to stop looking at this with rose colored glasses and acknowledge the performance this year is unacceptable and substantal improvement is required.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||We all need to stop assuming||
Harbaugh's attraction is stronger with recruits than other top tier coaches.
|4 weeks 1 hour ago||A four or five star player||
asked to compete against several other four and five star players is not an inducement to come to Michigan regardless of who the coach is.
|5 weeks 22 hours ago||He has all the physical attributes||
to be very successful in the NFL. All he needs is someone to coach him up. He will go in the first round.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Who is he?||
Is he the one that played for Houston for one year?
|5 weeks 6 days ago||You have to try real hard to||
laugh during most of the episodes. Without the laugh and applause signs in the theater most of the gags would generate little if any laughter.
That said, the show did produce some real good satire.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||I suspect had Clark picked Michigan||
Wheatley would have gone elsewhere.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||More than anyone it is||
Michigan who would love for Hoke to get another coaching job. It does not matter where.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||Though this is an interesting exercise||
we must keep the process in context.
The combined average of star rating for players on Seattle was 2.4 and for New England 2.3. Additionally, neither team had a five star player coming out of high school. Seattle had four 4 star players and NE had 3.
|8 weeks 19 hours ago||What about MSU recruiting||
and results. How about TCU and Baylor.
Look I get if you recruit good players and have good coaches the results will show. However, the difference between a 4-5 star player and 3-4 isn't that great. Whatever the difference coaching will make up for it.
Moriato (?) was the second string QB on his high school team. What was Cardale Jones rating?
|8 weeks 22 hours ago||The recruiting drama is||
way overblown. There are many good players and losing one or two or ten for that matter will have minimal impact so long as we have good coaching.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||I may be off base but I believe||
the issue of recruiting top ranked players is way overblown. MSU has proved this. Name me one Michigan highly rated recruit over the Hoke years that has made a difference.He had many of the highest rated classes and yet last season failed to make a bowl game.
Caoching is the difference and Michigan has taken a huge leap in this area.
|11 weeks 2 hours ago||I'll wager there will be a rule change||
concerning this issue. It is unfair to the defense. The same logic of requiring a tackle eligible announcement should apply to a RB ineligible.
|11 weeks 20 hours ago||I suspect LeBron had clearance form the school||
and NCAA before he did this.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||are there instructions||
on the site for block quotes? If so, where would I find them?
|11 weeks 1 day ago||But Hoke's recruits||
for the most part have not panned out.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Harbaugh also said||
I cannot afford to have one bad coach on staff. He will bring the other coaches down with him.
Let's hope JH has good intelligence on this hire.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||Let's not let our bias make us stupid!||
Of course we should all be rooting for OSU. A win would be great for the Conference, a boom for recruiting and national respectability. Rooting for OSU under these circumstances is a no brainer.
|12 weeks 3 days ago||Assuming Hogan wants to come and Michigan is interested||
what would be the timing for this to happen? Does he have to announce by Feb 15 like other recruits?
|12 weeks 3 days ago||I know Wheatly was a terrific||
running back at Michigan but does that make him a good coach? I have no idea if he is a good coach or not. Why do many on this blog want him to coach at Michigan? Because it would be a legacy hire?
|12 weeks 4 days ago||Being familiar with JH practices at USD||
the players will quickly discover that after the intense practices playing the game is easy.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||Can he contact the recruits?||
Not sure if he can call them but sure of no face to face at least until Jan 15th.
Also very important to recruiting is an announced staff.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||Let's not put the cart before||
the horse. it would not surprise me if next year we yet again lose to MSU and OSU. JH will need a couple of years grooming a championship QB.
|13 weeks 2 hours ago||Too many source saying the agreement is done||
JH would not have been finalizing an agreement if he was open to other offers. He would have waited a couple days before finalizing the Michigan offer.
Also, should he back out now he would compromise his reputation to the point that no one would trust what he has to say.
He is coming.
|13 weeks 2 hours ago||At least now we are relevant enough||
to express their hatred.
|13 weeks 3 days ago||I view this as a positive sign||
that JH is coming. His decision was not forced by his family. It is what he wants to do not what his family wants him to do.
|13 weeks 4 days ago||Great information regarding||
the other NFL teams. I also believe his purported 8 mil per year offer from Michigan is too much for any NFL team to swallow given he has not won a championship.
As of today things look REAL GOOD for Michigan.
|13 weeks 4 days ago||We would be crazy not to||
The one major flaw in the Michigan team for 2015 is the lack of a good experienced QB. JH is good but it is not a miracle worker.
|13 weeks 4 days ago||When you couple this article||
with what happened in 2011 it should generate considerable concern.
That said, I doubt any NFL team will want to pay JH more than any other coach in the NFL (8mil) since he has never won a championship.
