The nutty Michigan coverage isn't so much about Harbaugh as it is a signal to the Big Ten that Fox wants to party.
|4 hours 48 min ago||That was on point actually.||
That was on point actually. Giving up 2 yards for the first down doesn't change the FG equation that much. And it would be much better than giving up a touchdown to a TE or something running down the field and past everybody. There were only like 20 seconds left.
I thought the dumbest thing Klatt said was he seemed to think Michigan thoroughly outplayed Utah for some reason all throughout the first half.

From what we've heard of Hoke's practices, it doesn't seem the quality of the coaching was the biggest issue. The main problem seemed to be how few reps they had and how inefficiently practices were run. We all know the problems with pace the teams had in-game as well. And it didn't seem they were pushed to continue working as hard as they should in the summer. You could have the best guitar instructor in the world, but you're not going to be a great guitar player if your only practice consists of seeing him for half an hour once a week.

No, that's not my question. I worded it very poorly. What I should have said is how does being in the AAU raise their prestige? Does it actually make them a better university or have better professors? It seems a school joining the AAU just gets to now say it's an AAU member because you fit some criteria.
Anyway, Nebraska isn't in the AAU. They were kicked out in 2011. So I guess the B1G doesn't actually have those standards anymore. Is Michigan really worse off because of that?
Wikipedia's AAU page also lists them as former members so I guess nothing has changed.
It seems Stanford and Cal do fine with their academic reputations without worrying about their football teams playing other football teams who attend schools that aren't as prestigious.

Now this is something that can be evaluated. I wouldn't be very happy being a Bo Pelini Nebraska team. I wouldn't accept oversigning. What happened in the post Ace talked about? Eh, I thought it was bad. I'd definitely prefer that it doesn't happen and I'd hope Harbaugh would be put under some pressure. I would definitely accept a few recruits who the staff thought they don't need anymore because of higher-ranked guys knocking on the door if they had already committed. Would rather the staff waited until the next cycle to start picking higher-hanging fruit even if signing up a couple mediocre players cost us a win (don't see how it'd cost more than that for a couple guys who are just so-so).
EDIT: Reading who Gameboy was originally replying to and what he said, I'm not sure we really disagree at all actually. I don't think Harbaugh should be fired if he does like he did in Stanford in 2010, but I would like to hear some pointed questions from the media that would cause him to back off of doing that in the future and hopefully a conversation with Hackett behind closed doors (that we would probably never catch wind of).

Win what exactly? The Hoke question was a serious one. What win percentage or number of B1G titles over X number of years would you be happy with? Can you name a coach who is winning conference titles regularly that treats kids well according to your criteria?

Seriously though, those traditions are what makes Michigan "special", along with, yes, winning a lot of football games. Michigan isn't famous because we haven't had sketchy grashirting. I fucking love Michigan football. Having said that, if you're on some sanctimonious kick where you think Michigan is above reproach in all regards while everyone else is using prostitutes and bags of cash, then you're just going down the delusional road to a cult like ND or JoePa at Penn State. I don't want Harbaugh to do any real sketchy stuff, but Michigan football isn't my moral and spiritual guide. I don't think all OSU grads go to work at McDonald's (and I hate shitting on people who work at McDonald's), and I don't think all opposing coaches are evil. I mostly just hate the oversigning that genuinely fucks over players.

You realize the problem with Alabama isn't that they're overcommitting but that they're oversigning, right? Oversigning is much worse IMO.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||Also agreed. Ace makes it||
Also agreed. Ace makes it sound like straight up revoking the offer is worse than cutting off contact, but I think it's the other way 'round, especially when that recruit talked about how the part that took the longest was wondering what the hell was up with Stanford.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||Why would a kid not get a||
Why would a kid not get a scholarship at all? Signing Day is when the signing starts, not when it ends. A kid still has plenty of time. Yes, a lot of schools are full, but there are still a ton of schools that will have scholarships available for various reasons. Rudock had plenty of options. And I doubt the remaining schools would really be so beneath a recruit who's getting let go in the first place because he doesn't appear to be all that good.
I'm not condoning what Harbaugh apparently did, and I actually think in a lot of ways it's worse to leave the kid hanging than to just revoke the scholarship offer so at least they know the situation, but I don't think the situation is as dire for a recruit as you make it sound.

Hey now. Blind, one-armed, Lithuanian stump-dwarves are good glue guys. You need those guys on your team.
I certainly don't see this post and think Richard Sherman but French Canadian! However, I'm not upset at all about it either. You can't teach size and athleticism, and Harbaugh has gotten some good athletes with good size that he can mold. How much does Harbaugh really have to make up for in terms of coaching up in regards to this guy vs. a guy well scouted and with good rankings but blowing up against really bad competition and ultimately still raw?
Again, can't say I'm excited, but I can't say I'm worried either.

I certainly won't protest more content, but I actually wouldn't be all that interested in hearing from current coaches, except Harbaugh of course. Coachspeak gets pretty boring. I usually just quickly skim pressers during football season. And I think Brian would have to be too serious to do a podcast like that. I mentioned the Audible podcast with Mandel and Feldman and the stuff I have skipped over there is interviews with current coaches. Retired/former coaches do tend to let loose a bit though.
However, I do like the idea of other B1G bloggers. Would be cool to get a guy from BHGP or Sippin on Purple or whatever that NW blog is that Brian sometimes talks about. And Ramzy as I mentioned before. Especially if we play that blogger's team in the coming week. Would be useful as a preview.

That's kind of my worry, because of the scholarship crunch going on. I don't have any problem with the staff getting under-the-radar recruits that they've evaluated in person and fit what they're looking for (high IQ, versatile), but I also still think you could get a lot of guys like that who are already 4 and 5 stars and more likely to pan out. I just hope the staff hasn't been too gung ho about things when they should have been a bit more judicious. Hard to say how many scholarships will be available in the future though.
I don't think we will start 6-0 though. Would think the team will slip up at some point with inconsistency, especially against Utah.

I'm not one to analyze scouting film, but I wouldn't call his speed deceptive. He looks pretty damn fast for a QB. Faster but not as big and strong as Dak I'd say.
As Monkey House says, I also doubt he'll be our starting QB. Wouldn't surprise me to see him run some option sometime or be in for goal-line situations. Otherwise I figure he'll play elsewhere.

So are mentally retarded people actually highly intelligent instead? I don't use retarded mainly because it's just going to cause comments like yours, but it's hard to find something wrong with it. IQ is a bell curve. People at the lowest end are mentally retarded. People not quite that low are stupid. But for some reason, saying something is stupid is OK, but retarded isn't. It's odd when you think about it. If you're just pretty dumb, then it's no problem referring to something like that and you get no protections or sympathy. But if you're really retarded, then anyone who mentions a word referring to being retarded is hateful.
