Yes, yes- who knows how he has time for all this sarcasm when he should be calling Saban and Hoke and such, telling them of all the film he's watched and how wrong they are. Must also be why he couldn't be bothered to address my point.

All that and pilfering photos of women to put on his site who haven't granted permission for their use. Magnus must have 28 hours in a day instead of 24.

And yet you say "His ceiling doesn't seem to be extremely high" as if it's factual based on his brothers' experiences.

|5 years 15 weeks ago||Well, he's been my best||
Well, he's been my best friend since 2nd grade, we went to school together in Ann Arbor and I'll probably be his best man if that tells you anything.
|5 years 15 weeks ago||Well I've been his biggest||
Well I've been his biggest proponent since he got here, and this was my worst fear. If he would've been given time he would've really turned this thing around and put us on par with TX, OK, USC, etc. Now we're probably looking at Harbaugh and ND type irrelevance.
I knew something was up when I got the voicemail to call my buddy back "ASAP", but I just figured he'd finally gotten engaged, he's been planning on popping the question to his gf of 3 years- he was supposed to do it the day after Christmas but she got stuck at Metro after that bombing thing.
|5 years 15 weeks ago||Sorry to tell you guys this,||
Sorry to tell you guys this, (I didn't want to start a thread for fear of a massive board meltdown) BUT.....wots is RichRod to TN. My best friend since 2nd grade went to grad school in Knoxville and works in their sports information department. They've known since Monday that Kiffin was probably leaving. They made contact with RichRod at the National Coaches Conference.
The scuttlebutt is he's sick of all the political BS here, the witchhunt with the Freep, the new AD and ESPECIALLY thinks he's being setup for failure with MRob and Devin not being admitted early. Look for him to try and get them to follow to TN. Rita also misses the South and the warmer weather. TN is preparing an announcement.
EDIT: Regarding recruits- Witty, too. Almost forgot about him.
|5 years 16 weeks ago||Lowest TOP in college||
Lowest TOP in college football this year? That scoring machine Brian Kelly brought to Cincinnati.
IMO, this is one of the issues with our lack of depth on D. RR's offense will be scoring with such ferocity you really need 22 guys who can play on the defensive side of the ball, which we are nowhere near right now. Getting some depth in here and be able to sub guys in and out is a large part of building things the way they need to be.

Saban's squad is favored against Texas and lost to Utah last year. I wouldn't be holding my breath on Saban not "choking" right now.
As for RR, do you honestly think he won't bring in big linemen like Oregons'? Do you think he's watching other games than you are, or the trip slightly north made him forget how to coach? Honestly, you people amaze me sometimes.

|5 years 17 weeks ago||Harsh much? Try a sense of humor asshole.||
MSU Police Chief Jim Dunlap said ski masks were not present. He DID, however, say this:
“Only one individual was wearing anything that you could remotely say was similar to a ski mask, and it was an open-face mask, similar to a knit hood. … When I think of a ski-mask, I think of the two holes cut out for the eyes, and that’s not what this was.”
In the chaos of 12 guys storming a potluck dinner in a dormitory, an open-face knit hood could very easily be misconstrued as a ski mask. As it was noted several times by the media the assailants allegedly wore ski masks, I don't see the harm in making what was clearly a joke at Sparty's expense. Unless you took it literally and thought this guy was saying Gholston TRULY de-committed because they didn't have his size of ski mask, which would make you the complete moron.
Seriously, I hope you got a sense of humor for the holidays, or a ticket back to MLive or wherever the hell it is you came from.

I'm sorry to say it friend, but there's no way Kelly is there 3 years from now. The only reason he ever released his statement about not being interested in the M job is because there was no way in Hell he was being considered for it. Savvy PR move? Yes. Actually turning his nose up at M to stay in Cinci? No. He's done good things for that program, but the resources aren't there like they'd be at CU or a larger state school.

Did it ever occur to you that they had the possibility of being stopped on 4th down, while a field goal there is virtually guaranteed points? So maybe it wasn't as classless as you think.

|5 years 45 weeks ago||I suspect there will be much||
I suspect there will be much less "internet policing" once the season is closer at hand/underway. There are many of us who lack the wherewithal to come up with original content during the off-season due to other responsibilities that actually, you know, pay the bills. The few who contribute regularly- aside from dick jokes on Uniscorn- do their best. A bit of that takes the form of reactionary posts to the negativity perceived by GBMW and others who we see as decidedly anti-RR.
I am by far the greatest proponent of Rich Rodriguez and his Whacko Ninja Offense, and yet don't see the point in running continual content on how badass I think we will be in the next few seasons. I guess our point, as Jamie Mac made clear, is to take a realistic view of not only U of M fandom but fandom in general. You may take it as negative, we see it as trying to temper the expectations that made much of the past 15 years a horror story for us all.

To address your original thought though:
For me it's a real life vs internet thing. By that I mean I try not to do things on the net that I wouldn't be comfortable doing in real life. Any off color joke I make here or on Uniscorn I'd be comfortable having associated with me in real life, and anytime I call someone out I expect the same. To that end, I wouldn't be comfortable approaching athletes I don't know personally in real life. Braylon frequents the place where I work now, and Chris Perry and multiple Bengals frequented a place I worked in Cinci. I just find it rude to intrude on their daily lives, celebrity or not.
This becomes even weirder when you start thinking about the fact recruits are 16-17-18 years old. Obsessing over Scout, Rivals, or reading every article here on MGo is one thing. Posting on their Facebook wall is just a tad on the creepy side- especially the older you get.
The bottom line is that recruiting is an extension of the team, and with the new staff true freshmen will get a chance to come in and compete and be relevant much sooner than under Lloyd. It's fun to know these guys, but have a little perspective people.
As for the WR debate, with the sets we'll be running and the pace we'll be running plays, you'll often need eight guys healthy and rested and able to perform. And with the slot and outside WRs, you have two completely different positions. Often times, people are lumping them all together.

The reason I come aboard was the (mostly) intelligent football conversation. If I wanted to discuss that stuff I'd go hang out in Uniscorn. Oh, wait...
I just really think it's OT things that drive the intelligent conversation away. It's like having an entire community of what's his name, the guy who posted the dead body pics. And yes, I know it's the offseason, but still.

The gist of the theory goes like this: God got bored, and came back to earth splitting time as both Tom Brady and Tiger Woods. Proof?

Also, one is married to a Swedish Nanny, the other dates (and is now married) to a supermodel worth roughly $140 million. Both had knee injuries last year. AND they've never met or been photographed together.

Ah yes, the old "I have a social life so I'm cooler than you people who hang out on interwebs" being deployed by someone on the interwebs. BRILLIANT!
Perhaps you should learn to talk to your "real" friends and Liveblog at the same to. Like I do. At the bar, where I find this makes me simultaneously geeky and yet cool. Take THAT "I have a real life" guy.

I don't think I ever got an answer to this question so I'll ask again: Do you put actual effort into sucking at life, or is it just an innate ability?
|6 years 8 weeks ago||So Ricardo is currently the||
So Ricardo is currently the #4 player in FL and probably a top 50 kid overall, and he's moving to Michigan to play at Huron, AND he's an outside WR? BUT RICHROD DOESN'T THROW THE BALL IN HIS OFFENSE!!!!!! Oh, wait....
We're also already bigtime onto several QBs, and we just landed a Top 10 class after going 3-9 and having an offense that looked less organized than two monkeys trying to fuck a football.
It's coming people. IT. IS. COMING.
|6 years 9 weeks ago||Don't think it's been said here.....||
......but there is an account of what RR said to Arrington, Mallet, et al and if it's true he was completely honest about what he was planning for the offense. If he'd lied I think there was a chance they would've stayed (Mallet was probably gone either way) but he did what was best for the players. Based on that I gotta think his conversation with Threet was more along the lines of Don's second option.
|6 years 9 weeks ago||Bwahahahahahaha!||
I mean this with nothing but love, but you guys are idiots. With all the people who visit this site would it be THAT implausible that a cheerleader hangs out here?
If it's not her it's a great joke, if it is then ya'll got busted and it's HILARIOUS. Thanks for the laugh either way.
|6 years 9 weeks ago||Course language?||
Seriously? You're going to use that excuse? It's absurd. Daddy Boren had to be warned by police to keep his temper and verbal abuse of Justin under control while Justin was walking to the locker room during halftime of a HS game. The whole "family values" reference was a shot at RR for not giving Zach the offer LC had promised. I for one am glad to be rid of the country club I knew you way back when so your son gets an offer mentality.
Course language my ass.
|6 years 10 weeks ago||So you suck on purpose or is||
Just curious- Do you suck on purpose or is that a natural ability?
|6 years 10 weeks ago||Agreed. Celebration, diving||
Agreed. Celebration, diving into the endzone, etc. should be fine. There's a reason the definitions for "celebration" and "taunting" aren't the same. The NCAA needs a dictionary.
|6 years 10 weeks ago||I joined last June, and||
I joined last June, and shortly before that there was an email making the rounds about Spring practice and players' performances. It was also posted to a Michigan forum of some sort. I believe it came out later that it was him and he'd decided to start posting them on Scout for everyone.
|6 years 10 weeks ago||What I am criticizing the||
What I am criticizing the "e-blog" for is the use of other peoples' material. It's all cut and paste info from other sites or made up mailbag questions.
The issue of Maizeman and his inside info is a completely different thing. While I enjoy reading it from a "slow down and gawk at the car accident" standpoint the rumor mongering part of it is detrimental to the program. It may be interesting, but in the end everything other than the competition between players part is just gossip.
As for comparing the e-blog and Brian, and the standards I hold them to, I use the same criteria: I value original content that is well written and informative. Brian passes the test, GBMW doesn't come close. The MM thing is an all together different issue.
|6 years 10 weeks ago||"...but I don't think it is||
"...but I don't think it is anything beyond what Brian posts when he knows something from the inside."
If you've ever read his stuff it's clearly more than the access Brian has. My guess is he's possibly the head equipment manager- that guy's been around since the late 70's I think, but I guess whoever it is doesn't really matter.
Bao- he used to send those posts out as emails to an exclusive list of people. Iirc he just started posting them to Scout after Lloyd retired.
|6 years 10 weeks ago||Corporate law? This whole||
Corporate law? This whole economic collapse/bailout mess makes just a little more sense now.
|6 years 10 weeks ago||Bao- I know you're a poster||
Bao- I know you're a poster on Scout so you've read MM's stuff, and that was word for word from one of the posts Maizeman's been putting up lately (post #1 maybe?). I'm certain Eroc and CoachBT know him IRL so they probably have permission. I generally try not to denigrate people who have put honest effort into their work, but having said that- the copy/paste thing is just silly.
|6 years 10 weeks ago||Maizeman is someone with deep||
Maizeman is someone with deep ties to the program, someone with daily access who's been around for years and years. How he ties into Eroc and CoachBT I have no idea. The funny thing about that post is it is basically a cut and paste version of one of Maizeman's updates, only Eroc has replaced the "I think..." with "we think".
Eroc tends to be extremely negative in all aspects of anything RichRod related (thus we get along splendidly....or not). How he became a mod I also have no idea, but their site is by and large a regurgitation of original content created by other people.
In this case the analysis is pretty spot on- but just because it was originally Maizeman's.

Breasts don't offend me- I happen to love them. Classless posts put on a forum regarding college football don't really offend me either. It's being a fan of the same program as idiots like you that offends me, that people who don't know us may lump us together simply because we both wear a blue shirt with a maize M. That offends me.

Did you seriously just put a video of a topless woman on this blog? WTF is wrong with you man?
|6 years 11 weeks ago||If you go back to the old||
If you go back to the old site archives there was a long and spirited debate on this issue that covers just about every argument and viewpoint there is on the #1 jersey. You can feel free to go back and read it if you have time to waste, but what came out of it is that it means something to some people and not to others. Personally I was always into it as most of my favorites players growing up were WRs. Many on here (and more than a few of my WLA brethren) thought it was stupid. It is what it is to you, really.
|6 years 11 weeks ago||I think as we go forward you||
I think as we go forward you will see RR's offense evolve to incorporate more vertical threats. I had an extensive discussion with a Spartan fan today who tried to forward the idea that Rich didn't use bigger linemen or tall outside WRs at WVU. What he's assuming is that Rich didn't want those types and ignoring the idea that perhaps Rich just couldn't attract them there. He's used what's been available to him his entire career, thinking he won't here is illogical. We'll soon be an absolute yardage chewing machine, and the outside WRs will be a big part of that.

That is all, please carry on with your intelligent conversation.

|6 years 14 weeks ago||Chi, my point was that life's||
Chi, my point was that life's not fair, not that there are more important things than football, etc. You should know I'm smarter than that. What it comes down to is that football is the bread winner for the university. Think it sucks that the soccer/lacrosse/softball/swim teams don't get the same treatment? Well I do too, but you know what- it's the way the world works. I just get sick of the "why can't everything be fair" bullshit that goes on in our society sometimes. Life's not fair. Man up and deal with it.
And I know you have a more personal level of interest in the non-revenue sports than most of us- my statements aren't a personal shot at you or those programs, it's the argument that everyone deserves everything to be equal, ie "everyone gets a trophy so no one feels bad" kinda thing that pisses me off.
|6 years 14 weeks ago||But why can't life be||
But why can't life be FAIR???!!!!!!!! Oh, wait.....
The night before last some guy died in Detroit because it was -10 degrees outside and he couldn't get in from the cold. Last night people in Royal Oak and Birmingham and Ann Arbor were out spending the equivalent of a week's hotel room (and life giving warmth) for that guy on food and drink. Is it fair? No.
But you know what? Your life will be much easier if you realize football is the big boy on the block. And I'm guessing it'll continue to be right up until.....oh, I don't know- probably until the love child of Jesus and Buddha takes up a bat and turns the memory of your tears into eleventy billion dollars of softball revenue.
Is it right- maybe not. Is it the way things are? Yes. If you want to make a difference, go volunteer at a shelter, don't come on here whining about a bunch of college athletes' loss of warm, indoor practice space.

W. TX makes a huge point. People who have been born and raised in Michigan have no idea the difference the weather makes. It's like being in a relationship where all your significant other does is nag for 25% of your day, then breaking up and dating someone who is actually pleasant 24/7. Or if you're going from anywhere warm to Michigan, the exact opposite. I was born and raised here but have been fortunate enough to live in warmer climes. Believe me when I say places devoid of grey skies and three inches of snow that turns into brown slush two days later actually exist! Why any of the recruits who visit this time of year choose to come here is WAY beyond me.
|6 years 15 weeks ago||Ziff, We've got Stokes coming||
We've got Stokes coming in on the 16th and Adrian Witty (Denard Robinson's teammate) coming in this weekend. I'd say if Stokes doesn't work out Witty gets an offer, and may anyway if they feel it'll help with Denard. (Just a guess).
All three WRs are relatively the same size, with speed being the difference with Peace/Stokes and no info on Witty in that regard.

Lol. Not really worried about hits- we don't advertise or make any money off the site, so one or one hundred thousand doesn't really matter.

Anything else I could care less about.
