|11 weeks 3 days ago||Ohio State||
This year's OSU class was ridiculous - small but the quality. I'm sure we can pull talent at the same level.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||Thats since Texas started laying an egg||
I remember in the Mack Brown era, Texas used to lock up all talent in Texas before Senior year even started.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||IMG is a football factory||
Its crazy how they do it
|11 weeks 4 days ago||What happens in Vegas||
Stays in Vegas!
|11 weeks 4 days ago||Didn't notice as much||
But yes, seems like they have been a consistently top school.
Attack them with enthusiasm unknown to mankind.
|16 weeks 5 hours ago||Stop with the Najee threads already||
we haven't seen a recruit get this much attention since Dee Hart
|16 weeks 12 hours ago||Value added = 0||
Seriously ... stop
|16 weeks 2 days ago||Cool story bro||
... but this is true.
I had an email address just with an admit.
|16 weeks 2 days ago||#FAKENEWS||
That is all
|16 weeks 3 days ago||Good luck to him||
Would have liked to see him in the class.
|16 weeks 3 days ago||This is really scary||
The talent coming in this year at OSU is crazy.
|16 weeks 3 days ago||Even before he has suited up||
that's a lot of confidence.
Unless you are speaking from pure rankings perspective.
|16 weeks 4 days ago||Competition||
when you have that much competition at a school. It's easy to get guys to compete and eliminate mistakes. You are playing against elite atheltes day in and day out.
It is a virtuous cycle.
|16 weeks 4 days ago||Since the dream is to contend for NC's and beat OSU||
I think we have to pick those two teams.
Sure we can have other teams in the mix. But the point of the exercise was to address the whole 'National contender' and 'Beat OSU'
|16 weeks 4 days ago||Eh||
You can argue the methodology
But the general guideline I went by was
- 98 = 5 star
- 95 = high 4 star
- 90 = low 4 star
Now you could have a 3 star (Khaled Hill) be a star and a 5 star (Derrick Green) flame out. But I'm guessing it evens out across all teams.
|16 weeks 4 days ago||Yes we did||
But we didn't have an elite QB or RB. We had an average O-LINE
Some matchups will be hard.
Also remember, we lost those three games by a combined 5 points. It's not like we got blown out. And anybody will tell you that a few calls here and there and the result moves in our favor.
|16 weeks 4 days ago||Slightly higher||
Not absurdly higher than Michigan though
- Michigan: 5 over 98 since 2013; Clemson 8
- Michigan: 21 over 95; Clemson 19
They have higher ceiling players. but should be about even. But the rest of the ACC is meh.
|35 weeks 3 days ago||I'm surprised nobody is talking about this||
But that class is one of the best in decades (if it stays).
|1 year 11 weeks ago||Whats interesting is||
Ohio State didn't have a down year even with the coaching change.
We also have good recruiting classes after a coaching change and then peter out towards the end of a coach's tenure. Don't know if that is a trend or was it just Hoke.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||Maybe a space issue||
Most of the population in NYC is in the five boroughs which are tight and cramped with little infrastructure for football.
Not saying this is a reason but may be a factor over the years.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||Deep OT class?||
Looks like 2017 is a deep OT class. Wilson is ranked 16th nationally and 5th in the position - that's a scary lineup of OL
|1 year 13 weeks ago||Might end up working in a pin ball machine||
|1 year 13 weeks ago||His middle name 'Decommit'?||
Good luck Jordan!
|1 year 13 weeks ago||Impressive offer list||
His offer list is filled with top programs - McLovin' it!
|1 year 13 weeks ago||This||
I have always struggled with this where I flip between if average matters more than total score or vice versa.
|1 year 13 weeks ago||Hasn't NJ always been a good state to recruit from?||
Last year we had Peppers
This year we have Gary
Before that I remember Devin Fuller
While obviously not in the league of FL/ TX - it certainly is not to be underestimated.
|1 year 13 weeks ago||Not sure if Rutgers would be as effective||
Michigan is awesome in all respect with the NJ connection
- Trusted local advisor (Partridge)
- Top headcoach in college football (Harbaugh)
- Great legacy and tradition in school
- Top academic and atheletic facilities
It is tough to ignore all of that.
|1 year 13 weeks ago||I'm thinking WRs and DBs are somewhat interchangeable||
So I'm not THAT concerned with WR abundance.
|1 year 13 weeks ago||All your recruits are belong to us||
Seriously - its raining NJ recruits
|1 year 13 weeks ago||NJ2AA||
NJ is a nice pipeline to have - many good schools and top talent come through from there.
|1 year 13 weeks ago||Wait .. Kemp?||
|1 year 15 weeks ago||What time is the game?||
Any live streams?
|1 year 16 weeks ago||In-state kids - definitely take him||
Don't want to upset schools and coaches in state
|1 year 16 weeks ago||Would love to see him in the Maize and Blue||
Would love to see him in the maize and blue. But good luck to the kid wherever he ends up.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||Clint Brewster also||
Clint Brewster also CB'ed Long to Michigan!
Sounds like he's one of the silents from the Army game Webb was talking about.
|1 year 23 weeks ago||27-21 UM||
|1 year 27 weeks ago||Honestly we have improved every week||
and we'll learn from this and move on.
I think we end top 10 and take The Game this year to end on a high. I also think we will be the only team to beat Ohio State in regular season this year.
|1 year 27 weeks ago||The refereeing was atrocious||
Is there like a forum to remove referees.
Also, did it seem that MSU players were too aggressive on the field after plays. I saw at least five instances of unsportsmanlike conduct that may have been called in other games.
|1 year 27 weeks ago||OMG why does this happen in crunch games||
They were so bad bad bad today
|1 year 28 weeks ago||28-10||
To the maize and blue
|1 year 28 weeks ago||Definitely improvement||
But I'd also attibute a lot of it to the good work by the line.
He's a bulldozer though.
Also shoutout to Sione Houma. He brings a smile everytime he touches the ball
|1 year 28 weeks ago||Fine I'm sorry||
|1 year 34 weeks ago||28-17 to the good guys||
28 - 17
|1 year 46 weeks ago||Sweet Southern Tears||
I need MOAR
|1 year 50 weeks ago||I'd take Coach B anyday||
over a coach who brings in 5* talent but fails to develop and harness them.
|1 year 50 weeks ago||I like the modern Block M||
The split M was nice ... for the 90's. Now its stale and needed a revamp - the block M addresses that.
|1 year 50 weeks ago||Oreo||
reminds me of childhood and growing up.
Hydrox reminds me of filthy money guzzling, no good imitators.
|1 year 51 weeks ago||I liked the Denard brand of QB||
even though he made two mind-numbing throws every game, he more than made up for it.
If NFL means the game is evolving into more Denard'esque - sign me up! That said maybe Denard's QB skills don't necessarily translate well in the top echelons of football.
|2 years 1 day ago||Jaedong||
I'd pick Jaedong over MC anyday
|2 years 11 weeks ago||Aww - sucketh||
but good luck to him.
|2 years 11 weeks ago||How many schollies do we have for 2016?||
I'm assuming it will be a 25+ class with normal attrition. Under or over?

Now to produce the next great Superbowl MVPs for the next decade!
|2 years 17 weeks ago||Drew Sharp||
Though he's a troll, not a journalist but still he wins this one outright.

Let it be Sunday already. I can't wait dammit.
|3 years 20 weeks ago||Coach Brown says||
.. Saban is not Longhorn enough to coach at Texas.
Reportedly alumni are not happy with this rumor
|3 years 20 weeks ago||Riots reported in Alabama||
... also hearing of celebrations in Austin .. heralding the arrival of St. Saban
|3 years 24 weeks ago||This year's failures comes down to O-Line recruiting vacuum||
that is the legacy of our previous coaching staff.
Give it 2 years - we'll be back.
I know it sounds like something we've been saying the past 10 years - but with coaching continuity I think it is very much possible with the kind of talent coach Hoke and co are bringing in.
|3 years 24 weeks ago||Not really||
We are not keeping the ball enough to give it away.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||We are fine||
Coach Borges is a good, not great coach. I think his problem is that he doesn't have the personnel to run his system. It will come with time 2 years maybe (next year we have to fresh tackles).
I think with better, more experienced talent we will be fine.
What concerned me more was the missed FGs. I guess it was the atmosphere that got to Gibbons.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||I think this will be close||
31 - 24 to the good guys
|3 years 31 weeks ago||Stephen Ross support||
I think whoever Stephen Ross supports will win this one.
He'll be the head of the new fund raising campaign and whoever he is close to will win.
|3 years 32 weeks ago||Alabama's secondary got torched||
against the best QB in the country ... no shame in that.
But our team got smoked allround against Akron. There's a huge difference.
|3 years 32 weeks ago||We need Jake Ryan||
He is the savior
|3 years 32 weeks ago||We can't complain about defensive talent||
The talent is there - the experience isn't
Same with O-Line
Starting next year we'll have more stable mix of senior performers and juniors
|3 years 32 weeks ago||We played a terrible game||
and I'm glad it was against Akron rather than tOSU or any other team.
I'd say that any other team would have won by over 2 scores with our abysmal performance. The fact that they couldn't win this game proves they are exactly the team we thought they were.
|3 years 32 weeks ago||Taylor Lewan||
should come back to coach at Michigan one day!
|3 years 32 weeks ago||Meanwhile||
Ha Ha is going to the NFL next year
... just saying
|3 years 32 weeks ago||We are ALWAYS||
2 years away from National Championship teams ... seriously ... I'm tired of the 2 year hypothesis

Ohio produces more D1 talent than Michigan?
They are roughly in the same region with similar economies?

I thought I was reading about Mgowrestling in the middle? Is that in the pipeline
|3 years 34 weeks ago||No||
Beaver GERG has that card reserved.
Nick Sheridan can be the fool
|3 years 34 weeks ago||Since the O-Line Interior is untested||
I'd say 31 - 6
|3 years 34 weeks ago||I'll be there||
in spirit! Hong Kong is a long way out - Also it's the only morning game we get to see!!
|3 years 34 weeks ago||Green bashing||
I don't get it - yes the man is heavier than advertised. Yet, it is unfair on him to be labelled a bust as a true frosh without getting a single carry.
I personally think he'll turn out just fine. Wait until next year to see the change. With Fitz leading the charge this year, the pressure is off him.
|3 years 35 weeks ago||Devin Funchess||
Can he transition to Full time receiver?
He showed reasonable hands last year
|3 years 36 weeks ago||I get it||
This is the whole new manball offense coach Borges was talking about.
|3 years 36 weeks ago||Fitz||
has some nice fizz!
|3 years 37 weeks ago||So in practice||
Justice will run over Integrity while Spirit tackles Honor to the ground? ... Sounds about right
Also - Justice Hays would have been perfectly named for this class!

This was my first reaction too .. haha
|3 years 39 weeks ago||Damien Harris Concussion||
Per his Hello post
Had 742 yards and 11 touchdowns on 62 carries as a freshman in six games. A concussion shortened his season. Last year he put up 1,778 yards on 144 carries and scored 35 touchdowns. <
Isn't concussion usually a bad sign, that early in someone's career?
Not trying to troll here - but genuinely concerned about the kid.
|3 years 42 weeks ago||Moral of the story||
Tacopants is real!!!! OMG
|3 years 43 weeks ago||My money's on 9-3||
Our losses most likely would be:
1) ND - I don't see our OL getting it together that early in the season
2) Split MSU/ NW - We'll likely lose one of these two games (NW I think) since MSU offense doesn't look great
3) Penn/ Neb/ Ohio State - We may lose one of these three games.
|3 years 44 weeks ago||Curious what it will be named?||
Booster Bill Waterfall
|3 years 47 weeks ago||I loved the books||
Not a fan of the TV series.
Unrelated - I rather just watch Spartacus
|3 years 47 weeks ago||Possible Explanation||
Great to see us recruiting at an elite level again.
Could it be that this round, we have a smaller class and offering elite atheletes and going after them strong, rather than take the carpet bombing approach that some of our rivals may have.
It is still commendable that our coaches are able to close out such elite talent so early in the process.
|3 years 47 weeks ago||Florida kids||
Congrats on graduating!
It was a special time in Michigan watching all the Florida kids making a difference.
Any we should keep an eye out for the future?
|3 years 47 weeks ago||Random question||
but how many scholarship QBs is typical at a nationally relevant program?
I wish a couple of our DBs could play QB - our depth is scary!
|3 years 47 weeks ago||Offering is one thing||
... going after is another.
Maybe this time around they are pushing for other higher rated prospects in other areas of need.
My point was more than we don't seem to be leading or in the running for RB recruits based on the updates we've been getting.
|3 years 47 weeks ago||Joe Mixon would be nice||
But I don't hear about any potential RBs visiting or announcing Michigan as their top school. There isn't enough RB 'buzz' in this class. Maybe its just me.
|3 years 48 weeks ago||Texas or USC||
1) Both schools have good football history
2) Both states are rich recruiting grounds
3) Academically, they are stronger than SEC schools
Texas: Public school
USC: Rose Bowl country
|3 years 50 weeks ago||What the fuck ...||

its what the NFL also did this year. Stock up the trenches.
|3 years 52 weeks ago||Nice!! Welcome JBB||

Personally, I'd love to see him play RB - he has such shiftiness.
|4 years 2 days ago||I'm not sure why||

|4 years 16 weeks ago||Bring back NIKE||
I mean NOW!!
|4 years 16 weeks ago||Bowl games||
I believe one of the keys to seeing lower number of wins is the rise of the SEC. In general, there seems of be a rise in the quality of teams in other conferences. Hence the bowl games are generally more competetive than they used to be. It is also a product of tougher out of conference schedules.
Also recruiting bases have gradually shifted southwards hence the southern teams are doing better than they did in the past.
|4 years 18 weeks ago||Bring back tradition||
I wonder how coach Hoke feels about these monstrosities.
Our uniforms are the most recognizable in college sports - there is no need to fix something that ain't broke.
What next? Replacing the maize wings with purple polka dotted wings?
|4 years 18 weeks ago||Buckle Up||
That is all.
|4 years 21 weeks ago||This is a good matchup||
I think we have a fair chance considering Denard should be healthy by then.

Treadwell, McQuay, Greene et all.
|4 years 21 weeks ago||This is awesome||
but why don't we account for passing yards in this?
After all pocket protection is also on the OL, no?
|4 years 21 weeks ago||Its official||
we are the SEC of basketball.
|4 years 21 weeks ago||Wait the world ends Dec 21||
This NC will never happen!!!
|4 years 21 weeks ago||Visiting Ohio for The Game||
wouldn't necessarily be as bad as taking an official to another school. Particularly if you took said visit in blue overalls.
|4 years 22 weeks ago||Yes||
They haven't used the manball phrase explicitly. But they've said time and again about shoring up the trenches. Showing toughness on the lines and winning the game on the defensive and offensive front. So, there is an implicit reference to MANBALL, at least in my mind.
|4 years 22 weeks ago||Not really||
I'm saying in the old days we used to run really well inside the tackles and even though we weren't as flashy it was effective.
There were people who said we played dull football back then, but I kinda wished it was back (even though we're not showing any success in it today)
|4 years 22 weeks ago||What concerns me||
is that we'll have so many freshmen on offense next year. Sure they are all highly touted but the concerns remain.
Also, we really need Derrick Green or some bluechip RB to come in in this recruiting class. We've missed out on many in the past couple of recruiting classes.
|4 years 22 weeks ago||Yikes!!!||
Not intended ... apologies.
But it is kinda valid.
|4 years 22 weeks ago||I do hope he gets his RS||
He's Denard reincarnate!
|4 years 22 weeks ago||Not in same division as Ohio||
I like the idea of having to compete with Ohio twice a year. Ohio and Michigan are the two best teams in the conference in most years and they should naturally compete for the title game every year. Any other alignment will make the other rather lopsided unless you have Penn and Nebraska in the other division. Ideally, I'd like something like this. Have one protected rivalry game from other division
Division the First:
Division the Second:
|4 years 23 weeks ago||Eh||
|4 years 23 weeks ago||The score||
MICH 31 - 10 IOWA
|4 years 24 weeks ago||Devin||
Devin looks so effortless when running and always exudes a calm when playing QB (at least his body language is very fluid)
I have to wonder though, how he will do against tougher opposition. Not to be a naysayer but even Forcier won against ND with seconds to go, so I'll take these with a grain of salt.
|4 years 24 weeks ago||ND again in Rose Bowl||
That'll be an awesome Christmas present!!
|4 years 24 weeks ago||Next Year||
The O-Line will be a major worry. We have a bunch of RS Freshmen/ Freshmen
Lewan is likely gone too - so yes, it is a little worrying. That being said, we'll benefit from a good schedule (this year's schedule was beyond brutal)
|4 years 24 weeks ago||Laremy Tunsil?||

|4 years 28 weeks ago||Big Will||
I thought he would be a massive flop (yes, I can be a negative Nancy sometimes). But he has held his own. I'm impressed.
Gallon - dude comes up with the ball - for his size he's amazing.
Devin's - I'll take two Devin's on the field any day of the week.
Fitz - maybe he is a second half of the season kind of player

|4 years 40 weeks ago||Death Penalty Avoided||
I believe Penn State will avoid the Death Penalty - perhaps rightly so.
However the following must be required -
1) Huge fines (football revenues from the past 10 years to be donated towards a charity dedicated to welfare of sexually abused victims) - $100 million
2) Ban from bowl games and post season for the next 3-5 years
3) Mandatory installation of a third party audit committee on an institution wide basis to report any exploitation of kids
4) Exclusion from the B10 - I know this is extreme but I really do this they should dissociate themselves from the B10

My thoughts and prayers for the Hoke family and friends.
|5 years 4 weeks ago||His 247 profile lists a Michigan offer|
|5 years 4 weeks ago||I thought so too||
his speed and disruption as a OLB is amazing. Kid wants to hurt people (he's flying around with tackles) but given our LB situation (after we turned down DoD) I'd say he's been looked at as a back.
|5 years 4 weeks ago||We are rabid fans||
its in our blood to speculate. And it is nothing beyond speculation.
Nothing to do with Shallman himself - the kid's in a great place either ways.
|5 years 4 weeks ago||Don't like the||

|5 years 6 weeks ago||I truly hate||
|5 years 6 weeks ago||What's with the blown foul calls||
The refs are turrible
|5 years 6 weeks ago||With our schedule this year||
I think this is a tad over optimistic.
I'll settle for Sugar Bowl again ... (and let Spartans lose the BCG ... again)
|5 years 6 weeks ago||I also like him as RB||
since he's played games where he's carried the ball over 20 times. He obviously doesn't mow over defenders but he''ll be a useful scat back in any offense.
|5 years 6 weeks ago||On what basis are you making this statement||
While I haven't made any comparisons between Smith and Dunn, I'd like to know the rationale behind this statement?
|5 years 6 weeks ago||Wish him the best||
Glad he stuck it out this long.
|5 years 6 weeks ago||Not quite the same situation||
In LB, we have 2-3 highly regarded LBs naming us leader (Levenberry, O'Daniel) and possibly us having a silent (Gedeon). In addition, we are recruiting Shane Jones still I think.
In RB, we have only two realistic options in Isaac and Smith. I think, they won't tell Smith to not visit in any case. Green is only an outside possibility at this point.
|5 years 6 weeks ago||Glad||
I wasn't the only one.
|5 years 6 weeks ago||I know it is early and probably stupid||
but looking at the offer sheet of Smith and Green, Green is probably the better back.
Is it just the 'fit' which makes Smith better suited for Michigan? Or is it just based on pure possibility of commitment.
|5 years 7 weeks ago||If you are Kendall Fuller||
You need not worry.
|5 years 7 weeks ago||Fwiw||
Isaac is staying at AA the entire weekend. This is a very good sign particularly with current commits visiting for a full court press on him. This could be the second coming of THAT weekend.
|5 years 7 weeks ago||I think it is clear the staff favors Gedeon||
What is your assessment of comparison between Alex, Shane and Ben
|5 years 7 weeks ago||Also Massillon pipeline||
