Sitting out of bowl game didn't hurt either of the RBs. Going to become more of a trend if you are not in the playoffs.

Sorry I still have cold sweat nightmares from "Patrick Kugler is the most college ready center we've ever seen... " Wake me up in 2 years when people actually perform in actual games.

They were there on a scouting mission to upgrade the pizza Urban needs to eat in the future...

There's that Stacey Augmon money train again! Very weird choice other than under the guise of "I am one and done and NBA will draft me no matter where I play so I might as well play in a crap conference and crush people since I'm getting drafted on potential anyhow" but to sit here and laugh at their recruiting the past few years in light of our inability to get top 25 players is silly. They had a huge class last year of top players and have a top 10 player coming in this year as well.
Hopefully Mark Smith goes to ILL as rumored as the maturation of Langford and Winston will be their main wildcards. Their front court currently as set if Jackson is anywhere near his 5* rating will be difficult for almost anyone not named North Carolina or Kentucky to deal with.

Bummer. With the trajectory of Washington that was looking like a great series.
|2 days 13 hours ago||Every year people want to||
Every year people want to throw in 10 man lineups and almost every year Beilein ends up with a 8 man rotation once things matter. Frankly the last 4-5 weeks last year was basically a 7 man rotation!
If the 2 bigs come back you are looking at those 2, Duncan, MAAR, Simmons as 5. Teske OR Davis would get the bulk of 1 spot, Matthews and one assumes X is next. That's your 8. On off nights for Teske/Davis the other of Teske/Davis goes in I assume. Unless X gets displaced right away by a freshman that seems to be your lineup on most nights.
Now if the big 2 leave than we are going to be very young again and everything about goes to the pooh pooh pile.
|2 days 17 hours ago||First let me say I am all for||
First let me say I am all for taking a high ceiling low floor guy in this class. You have Peters 2 years ahead, and then you have sort of the exact opposite guy in McCaffrey - a guy who seems to have the tools but needs a lot of physical development. So this is the class to take some risks. So this is a good risk. But it's a bit too easy to say "he throws hard and far, winning".
As for Gentry he was on campus for a year before Peters showed up. He changed to TE almost immediately Peters showed up. He had a year of Harbaugh to 'fix his mechanics'. So he had 2 guys really ahead of him which is very normal for a RS FR which was the moment he changed to TE if I recall. If I had a year of Harbaugh development as a 6'7 240 guy with nice mobility I wouldn't be changing positions due to a freshman showing up or worrying about O'Korn as he would be gone by the time I'm ready to challenge for a starting spot.
I'm just saying we were saying "wow big guy with speed, gonna love to see what Harbaugh can do with a dual threat giant like this at QB once he refines him!" So it sounds similar. I have no idea why Gentry made the decision so it's all speculation either way. Just as you are speculating. It was an example close to home - I'm sure many schools have similar situations.
If Milton wasn't this raw he'd be a lot higher ranked and probably not coming to UM due to the traffic jam on the depth chart anyhow. He looks more interesting that Vicious Vic to me as a "gamble" if you will. And if we get both QBs we can do the Brady (Shough) v Henson (Milton) thing again. Fun.

Peters is more of an unnatural athlete. He is white after all.

It's nice and of course you'd love someone with a cannon AND accuracy but if given a choice I am going to take accuracy all day long within the first 25 yards of LOS. That's where 95% of your passes are going to be thrown. He looks like a high ceiling but lower floor guy (or I guess a potential TE if he doesn't work out at QB which seems to be Harbaugh's MO). But I think DTR was the same frankly - not seeing a guy play much in HS and gaining stars as a QB on the "camp circuit" gives me Shane Morris flashbacks (re: DTR).
I think we were saying Harbaugh would "fix" Gentry's mechanics too.

Just for comparison state only 0.6% of referrals to RCMB are from Mgoblog.
Probably because unlike there, every 3rd thread is not about the rival school....
|2 days 18 hours ago||Having seen the metrics on||
Having seen the metrics on some few sites, you'd be surprised how little time the average person spends on a site. This is not facebook for most people. 2 minutes is very common. Also keep in mind when people come to the site by mistake they bring down any sites average so you have the 2 and 4 seconds etc out there. Not that that is a massive mover for this size of site but it affects smaller sites.
But just in general people don't stay in 1 place long.
|2 days 21 hours ago||Personally I love the move||
Personally I love the move due to the position. X was non existent early in the year and was "ok" late but not at a level you had full confidence he was going to make a big leap. He may , he may not. If he didn't you are screwed as he was not playing at a level of a guy who deserves 30 minutes a night.
PG is where you want either extreme talent ala Burke or experience with good talent which this guy fits the bill.
As was noted by many, it will be interesting to see how he adapts to lower usage but if either of the 2 big guys leave, he won't be a 3rd banana necessarily. He might go right to #1. Matthews is an unknown and MAAR is not a #1 or #2 option.

Was watching with some marginal soccer fans who were aghast that was a straight red because Messi avoided about 50% of the damage due to sheer barry Sanders move. I said a normal man would be missing his lower leg there! And yes what a mic drop.

The new version of the site is amazing guyz. Can't believe you guys still are stuck here. I came back to just check out the old charm. See you over there!

|4 days 19 hours ago||Morbid thought of the day -||
Morbid thought of the day - when I read the recruiting updates and we see things like "begrudging 2019 update" I am thinking ahead about 15 years when I read those updates and Brian goes out 2 years ahead and I'll think to myself "will I even see that guy sign???" Maybe this is why I have more urgency than some of these younger folk on the board. "Oh don't worry, Harbaugh will beat OSU one of these years" just doesn't cut it for me - I have a limited shelf life... I need a run of 10 of 15 wins to start getting this series more balanced over the past 30 years. And it needed to begin yesterday!

Most of the original series was were before my TV watching time but it certainly was on syndication in that prime time "post school" late afternoon time slot through my entire childhood. Theme song just makes you happy (literally).

I was surprised to read in one of the McDoom updates, this trip was optional for the players. (he is going to Florida instead) I never imagined Harbaugh making practices "optional".

Wojo is horrible by himself. He needs a straight man and his knowledge of anything deeper than what his friends in the journalist community tell him about the Pistons, Red Wings, Lions etc is lacking.

The same memories you had of those 2 I had of Stoney and Wojo. No idea why they broke those 2 up - that was a great pairing, a complete sports nerd with a guy who superficially knows sports but was great comic relief.
