|7 hours 14 min ago||I knew Howard was still taking a break||
Just didn't know when he was planning to come back and if he was still planning to come back...glad to hear it's late this summer.
|7 hours 15 min ago||We win||
Everyone get naked!!!
|7 hours 18 min ago||Solid victory||
Plenty to build from, but great to get in and get some goals...build some chemistry for this particular group.
|7 hours 24 min ago||Any word or Belser and/or Tim Howard?||
|7 hours 26 min ago||You're a blog as well||
So why would you start your argument with that? As if you're putting me down for being on a blog...when you're literally doing the same thing. Think before you type.
And yes, he's struggled throughout his entire career as a defender, he's not good as a defender IMO.
That has nothing to do with an awesome goal that he scored. Your logic is awful. It's like saying just because someone is a great dunker that they're the best player on the team.
If Brad Guzan scored that goal, does that make him a great goalie?
It's just awful logic on your behalf...for someone on a blog, you should step your game up.
|7 hours 31 min ago||lol||
I didn't make a personal attack...a personal attack would be about his personality or his character or something personal, like his family.
Go back to the drinking thread and give an update...you're drunk and spewing nonsense.
If you're not, you're just an idiot. See, that was a personal attack. But it was also the truth, so I'll live with it.
|7 hours 41 min ago||It looks like they're playing with a beach ball or a marble||
Ugly design..must be Adidas (joking)
|7 hours 44 min ago||Wondo, Zusi will (should) both be gone after the GC||
...Brad Evans as well.
Still think Beckerman is going to make the final 23.
|7 hours 46 min ago||Nope. Not at all.||
Nope. Not at all. But you are a troll...so I guess we both are scary to young children.
|7 hours 49 min ago||WOW FUCK SHIT BALLS! What a||
WOW FUCK SHIT BALLS! What a goal.
I take it all back (I don't, still think he's a terrible defender, always thought he was a slow midfielder than a fast defender, but whatever)
|7 hours 48 min ago||Because an awesome goal erases a bevy of defensive errors||
|8 hours 43 sec ago||Halftime||
Alvarado for Gonzalez
Garza for Johnson
Zardes for Zusi
|8 hours 10 min ago||CB?||
|8 hours 11 min ago||Subs...||
I'd like to see 3 subs right off the start...
Anyone for Chandler, Bedoya for Zusi, Zardes for Altidore.
Then in the 65th/70th minute Ice Man for Dempsey, Morales for Mix, either goalie for Guzan.
|8 hours 40 min ago||Completely disagree||
Zusi is old and shouldn't play after this tournament...but he's smart and actually good on set pieces. Probably the best we have taking corners.
Chandler gives you nothing but heartburn and plays a position where no one should say that about you.
|8 hours 39 min ago||That's why I love Yedlin||
He's going to go too fast sometimes, but eventually he's going to force some action because he just puts so much pressure on the other team.
|8 hours 47 min ago||On the flip side||
I hope this is the last time I ever have to see Timmy Chandler play for the USMNT, he's awful.
|8 hours 52 min ago||Agreed||
But I'm okay if this is the last horrah for some of the older guys. Still have 3 years.
Let the older guys win this and then start bringing in the young guns.
|8 hours 53 min ago||I love the effort of Yedlin||
His speed is something that always needs to be on the field, IMO.
|9 hours 10 min ago||Who are the 3 guys looking to enroll early?||
|9 hours 11 min ago||Hello: Hemingway/Avant 2.0?||
I'm with it.
|15 hours 6 min ago||It shouldn't be later than 3:30...||
...but I see nothing wrong with a 3:30p kick. When people complain about it, it's quite annoying. The stadium is never full and it never feels like classic games are that early.
I miss the days when 3:30 was a "special" game and noon was your cupcake/pushover type games. That was always the best, IMO.
|15 hours 52 min ago||We had 5 good coaches under Hoke...||
Nussmeier, Hecklinski, Mattison, Montgomery, Manning...that's it.
What's even worse is we had 3-4 BELOW average coaches under Hoke. Which really set us back.
|15 hours 59 min ago||I've got Gold Cup finals tickets already...||
Club seats for $60 in a section that's already up to $125 on StubHub...hoping they get ridiculously high and I can even make a little money should the US not make the final.
|19 hours 58 min ago||I shouldn't laugh at your pain, but...||
|20 hours 10 sec ago||CC: Kirk Ferentz never mattered||
Neither did 90% of the "CC:" threads with the most ridiculous names and ideas ever. Bob Stitt, Jon Gruden, Tony Dungy, someone suggested we hire Brady Hoke or Mike DeBord for a year and try again for a big name coach the following winter.
Really, outside of Harbaugh, Miles, Mullen, Stoops (Bob and Mark), a couple of NFL coordinators with ties to the area and maybe a last second choice like Teryl Austin...who was EVER even remotely a realistic candidate to discuss?
The list was a stretch even at 10 names. Yet, delirium set in and people would just mention a name just so they could say why that person WASN'T a good fit. At one point we had CC: Spongebob Squarepants.
That was one of the 2-3 weird/worst periods on this board.
This Nike/Adidas/UA is typical dead horse summer material. If it wasn't this it would be something else to hold people over throughout the summer. And my thing is at least people are finding new angles...like this topic. This is a relevant thread even in October. Even if we had a longstanding relationship with NIKE and the contract wasn't up this thread would be relevant because it's also about the economy in Detroit.
Adidas building a factory in Houston? Not so much. Just my 2 pennies.
|20 hours 11 min ago||Better question...||
What am I NOT cooking? Errr grilling...
I'll be grilling everything the next two days and Sunday will be a leftover day that rivals the Friday after Thanksgiving.
The stove may only be used for sides, the oven is off limits all weekend. Basically, if it can't go on the grill, it can't go on your plate.
My favorite right now is bison burgers...
|1 day 4 hours ago||The only thing more annoying than the Adidas threads||
Are the people who run to these threads to complain about Nike/UA/Adidas threads.
We all know there are too many of these, but jeez...were you all not here for the "CC: (insert coach here)" epidemic we had just 7-8 months ago?
|1 day 4 hours ago||Because he doesn't live there||
Because he doesn't live there and there are a few nice things downtown that weren't there 5 years ago.
|1 day 11 hours ago||^This is what would happen||
I've gone through three apparel contracts, two switching to Nike...one staying with Adidas.
It won't affect this year, you'll just see the logo start to be phased out in areas and I'm sure they'll do the same huge big hoopla event next spring or summer. Everyone will think it's cool then while bashing it now.
Sidenote, Beilein and Harbaugh will both be making a shit ton of money from coaches contracts with Nike so you better believe they'll be pushing the product. They'll be seperate Nike employees from the University contract.
It's perfectly normal.
My guess is that there will be a statement and a hype video. Probably some quotes from coaches...then once Adidas is officially done they'll go full swoosh and hype.
It would be disrespectful to Adidas to start the hype now, a statement, maybe a short video, some quotes about how we're excited and blah, blah, blah will likely be all we get this summer.

Michigan fans, like most fans are pessimists --- and until we get confirmation that he/she has boots on the ground in Ann Arbor, we're not satisfied. It's really not that far fetched of a concept to be honest.
|4 days 3 hours ago||*Moe||
|4 days 5 hours ago||Question to those defending him...||
What if he would've hurt someone or something...does that change everything? Is that the difference being driving drunk deserving a second chance and an automatic firing?
Because if he hits a kid or a student, it's got more new coverage and he's gone immediately. Just wondering if that's the line...hurting someone vs. not hurting someone.
For me, and this comment is completely seperate from my questions about...for me, high level/high profile jobs come with high levels of responsibility and consequence. If you don't like or want that responsibility and consequence...don't take the job and the nice salary that comes with it.
Minick isn't the head coach or even a coach at all...but he's high profile enough to be on ESPN, on MGoBlog, he's not some intern that no one knows or cares about. To me, I hold him to a standard that I may not hold some random MGoPoster. Don't get me wrong, DUI is a DUI, whether you're a pro blogger or a school teacher or a head football coach or the Govenor, but the responsibility, profile and consequences to those jobs are all different. And while a DUI is wrong no matter WHO it is...the professional consequences very well be different for each of those positions - that's part of signing on the dotted line.
I'm still too embarrased by this to read up on it, so I do not yet have an opinion...but I hope people aren't making blanket statements when forming their own opinion.
|4 days 5 hours ago||So if someone was hurt...||
...then he's fired, right? #logic
|4 days 11 hours ago||However, the most unstoppable Bo of all time?||
Tecmo Super Bowl's BO Jackson.
|4 days 11 hours ago||Very solid candidate!||
I wrote a long post on this awhile back, Manuel would be my choice if we went with Michigan ties. Greg Byrne at Arizona would be my choice if we wanted someone completely away from the UofM family.
Manuel is a very good AD, an awesome man, I've had the pleasure of meeting with him on a number of occasions.
I'll take Harbaugh, a record breaking Nike contract, and Manuel in a heartbeat.
I just watched Manuel get honored as one of the ADs of the Year a couple weeks ago when I was at NACDA.
|4 days 13 hours ago||That's why I said I don't know what to believe||
Because a blog rumor vs. ESPN is a wash in my book.
ESPN's Jeff Goodman did site speaking to "a player," but still...ESPN is ESPN. And because it's Bo Ryan, it wouldn't shock me if the man has permanent high blood pressure.
Does that look like a healthy man to you?
|4 days 13 hours ago||He'll be 68 this time next year...||
...how is that far fetched?
By comparison, Beilein is 62 and we're all hoping we get 5 more years before he passes the torch to Jordan.
|4 days 14 hours ago||...or "suckeyes"||
...hopefully he logs out and heads back to MLive.
|4 days 14 hours ago||ESPN just said it's NOT because of health reasons||
I don't know who to believe!!!
|4 days 14 hours ago||...which is a big reason why he did it||
Recruiting opens up and July is a big period for coaches.
|4 days 19 hours ago||This is true.||
Not a good excuse because it's flat out the "well everyone was doing it" excuse...but if you hate Tiger for it, then you should hate the others too.
It is/was part of that elite golf culture, many people don't know that back in the day corperate elite would sponsor tents and inside would be strippers and crazy amounts of alcohol. PGA guys would slip in all the time for a drink, a dance, maybe both.
Wolf of Wall Street had to be an exaggeration, right? But they had to get those stories about crazy rich elite from aome, right? And even if they scaled back 50% from the movie it would still be insane, right?
Those tents had stories, I'm sure. And likely pre-dated Tiger's career on tour.
|4 days 20 hours ago||Why do you hate Tiger so much...||
..that you hate his sponsor as well?
And do you hate his other sponsors? Do you hate the PGA tour for allowing him to continue playing?
How far does this irrational thought process reach?
|5 days 14 hours ago||Isn't that just because he||
Isn't that just because he didn't go through all of his old posts/pictures and delete it?
Most people don't...I wouldn't look into that at all.
|5 days 15 hours ago||And my point...is that your logic is flawed||
Because it implies that if he was a star, he'd have the right to do what you're saying he's doing because he would've fulfilled some type of agreement that says "you can be a sell out if you produce."
Just weird that someone would use money and production as the reason for someone should keep his/her mouth shut. Think about that for a second. Extrapolate that analogy to something more serious, like domestic violence and see how that train of thought is wrong even in this much more simple situation.
|5 days 15 hours ago||I absolutely would. I didn't||
I absolutely would.
I didn't say anything wrong or anything that wasn't true. Wasn't out of frustration or spite or whatever is making this poster be a complete ass.

The reward of the NFL isn't their for 99% of the guys in college football today. I really don't think that should matter.

|1 week 12 hours ago||Choose wisely.||
The climate of Bolivia varies drastically from one eco-region to the other, from the tropics in the eastern llanos to a polar climate in the western Andes. The summers are warm, humid in the east and dry in the west, with rains that often modify temperatures, humidity, winds,atmospheric pressure and evaporation, yielding very different climates in different areas. When the climatological phenomenon known asEl Niño takes place, it causes great alterations in the weather. Winters are very cold in the west, and it snows in the mountain ranges, while in the western regions, windy days are more common. The autumn is dry in the non-tropical regions.

|1 week 13 hours ago||Here's that link in case it didn't work (insider needed)||
|1 week 13 hours ago||I made a JOKE and you got butt hurt||
...that's actually what happened.
When I explained my joke and that just because I, Chad Ford (http://insider.espn.go.com/nba/draft2015/insider/story/_/id/13143628/nba...), and MANY others think Winslow is the better player...doesn't mean we think Johnson is terrible.
I'm sorry, but your assumption was completely inaccurate. And if we had a chance to take Jimmy Butler and we took DeMarre Carroll, that would be extremely silly and a poor (ala Dumars) type decision in my mind. Detroit needs an/another all-star...I think Winslow has that potential. I think Johnson also has very good potential.
And why does everyone who gets on anyone who complains about Pistons drafting ALWAYS go to Burke/KCP...is everyone just too young to remember Darko? Just curious. Not relevant to my statement, more relevant to some of the responses.
In the end though, you were wrong. I never said, nor implied that Stanley Johnson was a bad players or wasn't going to make it in the NBA or anything negative, I just said I think Winslow is better. End of discussion.
|1 week 13 hours ago||FYI...||
...wanted to go back and edit, but oh well.
True or not true, stories and accusations like this are now going to pop up. It's just the world we chose to live in. The DUI, Medicals, finding recruiting loopholes, etc. - those types of stories are coming to Michigan just like they came to Columbus, Tuscoloosa, LA, etc.
...and we have to accept that because we wanted to compete with Saban and Meyer. (And Mora, and Miles, and every other ELITE coach or program in the past 10 years)
...I hope to God not, because I like playing the "above the b/s, too good for you" role we've gotten to play at Michigan. Years ago if this comes out, we laugh it off because there's 100% no chance. Now? Ehhhh, get back to me.
...even with rules or stipulations that may make us feel better. Kind of SEC if you ask me. Kind of the thing that we'd rip the Gators or Tigers for...
I'll also say this. There ARE cases where a players can be offered a medical and told he cannot play at his University and then go on and play elsehwere.
John Brown - this kid was at Va Tech I believe (basketball), they basically made him retire and for good reason if you know the story.
He transferred to High Point University and played.
I know this story closely because we (at my former school) had to decided as a senior staff and MBB program if we'd recruit the kid. He was a very solid player, but we just didn't think the risk was worth it. We chose not to allow our staff to recruit or offer him a scholarship. But he did play elsewhere.
|1 week 13 hours ago||There is more than one side to the story||
But I can't say I didn't see this coming from a 100 miles away...
And if you take off the maize and blue rose colored glasses, you know you did too.
We try to put Harbaugh on a pedestal, and rightfully so, he's our coach...but really, he's not much different than Saban or Meyer and we have to accept that if we want to compete with Saban and Meyer.
Again, I'm not saying there isn't another side, but we can't blindly take the moral high ground like we away did before. We can't act like what other schools are doing may not happen or be happening at Michigan, too. I hope to God not, because I like playing the "above the b/s, too good for you" role we've gotten to play at Michigan.
But let's be real, Harbaugh has a guy who just got behind a wheel with a BAC 2 times the legal limit still with the program in some capacity - even with rules or stipulations that may make us feel better.
There's another side to this story, but the fact is, Pipkins is likely going to play again.
It may not be 100% SEC, or even close, but it ain't all high ground and roses either. Likely lies somewhere in the middle.
Whether this is true or not, I for one, am going to stop with all the Meyer/Saban are the devil/cheater/Saban St. Jude/cut throat/anything to win type stuff...because, glass houses. And I can't be 100% positive we're not close to "that" than we are the Michigan we all claim to be.
I guess all I'm saying is...be consistent. If you would've DESTROYED Saban or Meyer for this exact same thing, maybe just keep quiet on this one. Not saying we need to destroy Harbaugh, but we shouldn't Eleven Warriors blind defend our leader as if he belongs in a place next to MLK and Ghandi.
|1 week 1 day ago||Do not want.||
We just want to compete for B1G Championships around here. Please go back to Oakland, Jim.
|1 week 1 day ago||He was an immature sophomore coming off a solid freshman year||
I don't think you can judge his character from that one year if that's what you're doing. He was supposed to be "the man" after that freshman season and didn't handle the success or the bigger role the right way.
As a junior he was a completely different person and much more comfortable. Shot selection was better and he wasn't forcing anything trying to be "the man." He just played his role as the "jack of all trades" #2 player.
|1 week 1 day ago||Just because I said Winslow was better||
...doesn't mean I think Johnson is bad.
lol, use your EXACT same logic.
I think Johnson is a VERY solid player, I just think Winslow can be an All-Star calibur player. I see Johnson as maybe a DeMarre Carroll...that's still a REALLY good player. But if you're talking Carroll vs. Jimmy Butler, you're probably taking the all-star in Jimmy Butler.
Both are still solid NBA players, just because I think one is better doesn't mean I think the other is bad. Use your exact same logic.
|1 week 1 day ago||No I'm not...||
I watched him all year.
He shoots over 40% from 3, he can guard 3 positions, he can attack the basket defend...I think he's just a better overall player. I think Johnson is a solid player and both will succeed in the NBA, I'm not saying he's chopped liver...I just think Winslow is a better player.
In today's NBA you need to be able to score, I trust SVG...but Drummond, a stretch 4, a power SF, KCP and a high volume point guard isn't going to cut it.
Winslow can be an All-Star, to me, that's the difference.

I'm literally the opposite...HATE the helmets, they're awful and that picture on them is terrible.
Love everything else, love the gloves playing off the thumbs rather than the same "dynasty sign" on the palms that everyone else uses.
The "under armour" is pretty sweet, looks like a huge tat, and I like how it shows through the sleeves when the jersey is on.
The feathers on the shoulders are fine...plenty of schools do this.
The angry bird helmet is so frickin bad.
If anything, they should've just used the same bird head logo and altered that to be all "chromey" and real looks (vs. the traditional cartoon bird look)

Burke would be the perfect fit for a LeBron led iso team - starting or off the bench.

I rarely watch that stuff anymore...it just doesn't feel right when you're not any good.
I've also found myself not caring as much about the national landscape of college football over the summer. When Michigan was good I'd buy a couple preview magazines and I'd follow everything that was going on. I could name my own personal Preseason All-American Team if I wanted and be pretty accurate. Now? I really don't crank up until those countdown videos come around in the fall.
|1 week 2 days ago||Me too...||
If you traded Purdue and Rutgers for Cincy and Pitt, I really wouldn't notice.
We should've added Syracuse and Pitt when we had the chance. No offense to Maryland, but it just makes too much sense if you HAVE to expand.
In the end, I truly want division 1 football to break off to 72 teams.
Six, 12-team conferences with an 8-team playoff that has conference winners and 2 at-large teams. This would be more than big enough to include everyone worth including.

Hoke would've won at least 7-8 games this year.
I'm not saying we're going to the CFP, but we were always going to be better than last year.
I'll set the new over/under at 8 allow you to "push" rather than going 8.5 - to me, this is much more reasonable.
Even if you say MSU and OSU are two gimme losses, and they're not, IMO...that's saying we go 3-1 in the non-conference of west coast teams and then 1 more slip up against and Maryland or PSU or something.
I could realistically see us splitting with BYU/Maryland and MSU/OSU for 2 regular season losses. To me, that's realistic "high end" for 10-2, starting 3-2 and losing to both MSU and OSU feels like realistic "low end" and that's 8-4.
My hope is for the split of BYU/Maryland and the split of the rivals, 10-2 with a shot at a B1G championship game or one of the New Year's Six like MSU played in last year.

|2 weeks 6 days ago||Lol||
I feel like someone with kids wouldn't have made that awful analogy.
Plenty of coaches have made the same decision and been successful. Again, let's stop acting like Hoke made this decision against the better judgement of every other coach in college football.
We weren't good two years ago and the leadership was awful. I know multiple players talked to coaches about the program's emphasis on seniors...everything was for the seniors and the seniors were supposed to be an extension of the coaches. They weren't...they didn't set the example and many of the players thought the leaders were underclassmen. Hell there were multiple reports of Peppers being a leader on the team as a freshman last year.
Hoke made a decision to place less emphasis on the seniors and wanted to recognize the leaders at every level.
Again, Taylor Lewan wasn't as well received from the previous year and there was a notion that his way of leading was the Michigan way and every senior class was going to follow that style. Think about this year, a Frank Clark is likely a captain. That's coincidence, but clearly we haven't had great leaders since Martin and RVB and co.
It failed. But let's not act like if we had captains at the beginning of the year then we would've been in the CFB Playoffs.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||STFU||
Hoke did it for ONE year and word is the PLAYERS asked to do it that way.
Rich Rod did it for 3 years and plenty of coaches around the country do it...coaches that win and are way more successful than Michigan over the past 7 years.
I didn't like it either but don't act like it's unheard of...Hoke isn't pioneering ANYTHING.
It also makes perfect sense if your underclass man felt like the reason they struggled the year before was because there was too much emphasis on the seniors and the seniors were poor leaders. This was the case at Michigan and I know that for a fact. Many of the young guys did not like the Lewan way of leading,..especially with his behavior off the field. Many thought there were sophomores and juniors who were the leaders on the team and Hoke was ALWAYS so pro-seniors until that final year.
It was dumb, but he had a reason...as do many other coaches in America.

I've always felt Gutz was going to be great. IMO, he was the best QB on that team. But he threw out his arm trying to keep up with Henne and co. and never recovered.
He was an NFL QB and never played a down at the D1 level, right?
Richard is an MLB starter, he's definitely got the stuff, just never got the opportunity.
Mallett was victim or Carr/Rich Rod.
I will take all 3 of those guys with 4 years of Harbaugh over anything we've seen in recent memory except Denard with Rich Rod.
Those were 3 amazing talents.
I'd also take Gardner and Morris at a slightly lesser level with 4 years of Harbaugh and a REAL Michigan team around them and not this bullshit we've seen post-Lloyd Carr.
Too soon on Malzone.

|3 weeks 2 days ago||I'm still not sold that they shouldn't be preparing Bradley||
I'm still not sold that they shouldn't be preparing Bradley for the Beckerman role. 3 years is a LONG time in sports.
No one expects Kyle to be there, or Jermaine Jones for that matter.
I'm okay with keeping Bradley where he is now, but after the Gold Cup, I'd drop him back to the defensive midfield spot and give him time there before the World Cup.
I think Mix is worth a starting 11 spot...he's not the best player, but he, IMO is what I've wanted Bradley to be for the past 3 years. Or at least he shows flashes of that.
I also think Yedlin needs to start, I'm biased, because he's my favorite player but things just happen when he's on the field. We're faster than everyone and he serves in beautiful passes from the right side. He also is quick enough to recover back on defense.
I'm completely over Timmy Chandler, he wasn't good in 2013, wasn't good last year and isn't any good now. I'd much rather continue to the Jermaine Jones as a wide defender expirement than give Chandler one more minute of run on the USMNT.
I think speed could be a huge asset out wide if we put Jones and Fabian Johnson out there and then Bedoya/Mix and Yedlin in front of them. So much overlapping and so much flexibility to recover on the back end. Keep Bradley in the middle, just drop him back after the Gold Cup and find someone to replace him...Julian Green? Mix? Corona? Zardes?
You can still keep Beckerman on the 23 man roster in 2018 and play him off the bench and move Bradley back up if you need to.
We also need to figure out what we're doing with central defenders. Brooks, Besler are on, IMO. Cameron or Gonzalez, then I think you need another rock like Besler rather than another tall, lanky, slow guy who fucks up too much. Should never had 2 of those types on the field at the same time.

|3 weeks 2 days ago||Two totally different players||
But MJ is the best basketball player ever in the history of the sport. Period.
James is a lot of other things...most versitile, may win 1 on 1, can guard the most positions, maybe even the 2nd best player ever in the history of the sport.
But as someone who's studied both...it's really not even a question at this point because LeBron doesn't have this championship with Cleveland yet...if he gets this, he's worth a mention. If he gets two, it's a debate.
Jordan's reign over (a tougher) NBA trumphs anything LeBron's done to this point. The caveat will be winning a ring this year - but LeBron hasn't done that, so we can't just give it to him just like we can't give Tiger however many more majors to pass Jack.
For me it's not about only rings (otherwise let's make Robert Horry an all-time great), it's not about ANY one thing. It's about the combination of everything.
LeBron is trending up, but he's not there yet. MJ sits at a table by himself, LeBron is sitting with Magic, Bird, Dr. J, and a host of others, which is nothing to sneeze at, but it's not Mike.

Also, when he's on the floor, LeBron isn't ALWAYS playing PG - where he's been awful all playoffs. Just because he can get the ball up the floor and call a play doesn't make him a great PG, he's been solid over his career - but in these playoffs he's been terrible. Also terrible in all iso situations and 3's.
Other than that though, he's destroying the world. Like shitting on everyone in every other aspect of the game.

That is literally the worst argument one can make in this particular series. Put anyone else in the world, literally ANYONE. And this Cavs team is down 0-3.

I think it's about the road trip he's on and camp after camp AND his insane intensity for perfection on the recruiting trail right now. His focus and work ethic, I mean now is the time he's supposed to be relaxing a little bit.
I think this just speaks to all things "HARBAUGH" we've seen and read about over the past few weeks. And he's not going to stop.
I almost wish he would take a week, I'm afraid the man is going to hurt himself...but then again, he's done it this way for this long. It's just how he's built. We should just get the f out the way and enjoy.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||In all seriousness...||
His obsession to be great is truly unknown to mankind...he's not even "a machine"...machines break.
His attention to detail and willingness to work his ass off is truly insane. We're in good hands, not because of the tweeting or the nonsense, but because this man will do every (legal) thing he can do to get even a .0001% advantage. He'll turn over every stone. He'll try every angle.
He's going to literally WORK Michigan back to elite status.
Think about how detail oriented he is about recruiting and everything non-football related this summer. He's got to be twice as focused about the actual team and upcoming season.
I think year 1 is going to be good...but year 2, after he's made mistakes (which he'll surely make because like I said, he tries everything...so he'll learn the absolute best way)...year 2 is going to be incredible.
Hopefully he'll have a road map for Michigan Football for the next 20 years.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||What the fuck are you talking about?||
'08-'10 were like the worst classes in Michigan Football History.
No disrespect to Gallon or Roundtree, those three classes had like four players anyone will remember (positively) 20 years from now. Denard, Lewan, Mike Martin and Jake Ryan.
I mean we used to get classes with Henne, Hart, Arrington and Branch ALL in the same year! And that doesn't include Jamar Adams, Chris Graham, Tim Jamison, and Morgan Trent who were solid late in their career.
The year before that? Burgess, Crable, Leon Hall, Jake LONG, Rivas and LaMarr Woodley! You're talking about three all time greats!
Avant, Breaston, Harris, Watson in the year before that! Again, some of the greats!
In a 3 year span '08-'10 our classes procuded as much top talent as we used to get in one single year.
And THAT is the problem with Michigan Football. We stopped developing recruits.
So you can keep that bitching and whining...if Harbaugh is going to get guys and make them better, you and your stars can kiss my ass. 2010, pssssh, get the fuck out of here...this is MICHIGAN.
