The debate was more along the lines of building momentum. My friend is an OSU fan, his thought was that if OSU won the conference they would be "hot" and perform well in the NCAA tourney.

I'm in love with the Craft gif. If only we could get the gif on a shirt, I'd pay $100 for it.

Narrow down the list early then take my time. If schools/coaches I don't want to hear from continue recruiting me....restraining orders.

I agree with a lot of what you said. If I had that that exchange with a recruit, I'd write something like this....
I exchanged some texts with Malik tonight. As you know, he released a top 7 recently and there's no order to it. This interesting because [insert some insight to previous recruiting info]. Originally, he was going to make his decision during the AA game, but he's not so sure now. Malik has always been one of the tougher recruits to read. He, his parents, and coaches have done a great job of keeping things close to the vest which is their right. He seems like a high character kid, whichever school he ends up at will end up with a great student athlete.

Don't forget, sometimes perception = reality. There are a lot of people on this board giving you their perception of the situation. Are we really that far off from what some recruits might think?
|14 weeks 3 days ago||By posting the exchange||
By posting the exchange verbatim you are telling recruits there is absolutely no confidentiality in any communication. They will be (or should be) 100% cautious about anything they say or text to you. That is no way to build any kind of rapport with a recruit. Next thing you know, you're going to be reporting on the recruits tone of voice when you talked to them. You should at least get explicit permission to post a verbatim conversation with them before posting.
I know we all beg and plead for information on here, but no report might be your best move sometimes. Both for your career and for MGoBlog.

That is exactly it. Not going to pretend I'm smart enough to dissect the play call. But not switching up the look after the timeout is coaching 101.

Is there a difference in the wording there? I mean effectively on the game?
Are refs schooled to pick one of the two?

I'm not smart enough to question the play call

Watched it with the Old Man. Special memories. Sharing stuff like that with friends and family is the best part of sports.

The biggest joke is how Brandon immediately opened up the pocketbook for a DC. I asked for an Arizona shirt for Christmas when he got hired.

Maybe Lewan blocks that guy to keep his hands down and out of the throwing lane? Just a thought

If NYWolverine and his fiancée aren't the subject of the first question on the Live Blog, I'll be disappointed.

This board is losing man points in a hurry. A thread from a guy who doesn't know how to drink, followed by a thread about the fiancée blues.

I had a wedding for my then fiancee's family for the 2010 ND Denardening. I spent most of my time at the bar watching the game. She wasn't proud of me, but she understood.

Lol, that crossed my mind. If you can't leave now and have her drive separate later, you might want to talk about a few things.

I got rid of cable, so I'm going to have to hit up bars for the bigger games.

While ESPN is likely a little bullish on Michigan's class, I wonder if the other half of the equation has to do with with Josh Helmbolt (sp?) coming from Michigan's Rivals site. Seems like he has gone out of his way to not be a homer.

Was pretty light hearted. Lots of respect for ND and the rivalry, blah blah blah. Sad to see it going away. Chickening out might not be the best word, but that's what it amounts to.
Joked about what Hoke would do if he won the lottery, said he'd stay at Michigan.

Ohhh, you have more MGoPoints than I do, so you're smarter than me. I get it now.
Obviously there is a correlation between a school's tradition, long term success, and the number of draft picks. But to say that a 4* is going to waste his career going to a "2nd tier" school is a little ridiculous. I don't think Michigan has had slamming success in the draft the last few years either.
