"What (Michigan coaches) told me is that they're focusing on point guards right now, but if anything opens up, they'll definitely come back on and recruit me as hard as they were," said Towns

- He's genuine and humble. He once spent 4-5 minutes talking to my then girlfriend/now wife and I at a lunch spot in Cleveland when he was on a recruiting trip. A simiple hi and handshake was all I was looking for, but he came over to to our table to continue the conversation.
- He has perspective, knows who he is, and knows what's important. There's a cool article about the role his faith plays in his life.

Exactly for one and two. I came home with all A's and a B+ once. First question out of my dad's mouth, "why did you only get a B+ ?"

To all the people criticizing Kyle. Was he a perfect human? Of course not. How would your own life look to the public though if there was thorough public and main stream media effort to undermine you as a person?

Agreed. Don't want to lose too much momentum from the initial Harbaugh hire.
I'd love to see Durkin, Mattison, Manning, Jackson, and Drevno formally announced today.
Edit: My biggest issue with this is that Swenson was given this info before it was official. How many people look bad because of that?

I know this will be unpopular....but the handling of Morris was wrong AND this blog is going over the top trying to villianize Hoke. Brian and company (along with all journalists) should be cautious about writing with so much certainty.
Edit: One doesn't have to be Pro-Hoke or Pro-Brian. You can be neither.

|40 weeks 5 days ago||Lots of things to consider||
I made the shift to the DE/Straight Edge world about 3 years ago. So all this is from experience.
1 - http://badgerandblade.com/ has a bunch of good information on there
2 - Buy a cheap strop and learn on that. You will likely knick and cut it, better to do it to a $20 strop than a $75+ one.
3 - Use a DE razor first. It's a totally different ballgame than the 8 blade Mach Jet Glide world. You want to use as little pressure as possible.
4 - When you move to a straight edge, start with a rounded tip. More user friendly for the beginner.
5 - I still only shave with the grain on my face, my beard isn't that heavy. With proper stretching I can get an excellent shave just going in one direction and cleaning up tougher areas (chin) with my DE. Don't chase the perfect 4-way shave if you don't need to.
6- Just get a finishing stone if you plan on sharpening your own blades. You likely will never have enough experience to buy all the stones necessary to rehab a very dull blade. I have all the stones, and only rarely use the finishing stone. Proper stropping will keep the blade plenty sharp for a long time.
7 - In terms of shave soaps/creams. I use Arko and Cella. Very cheap and makes good lather. You can spend $40 on soap, only to be frustrated in your lack of ability to make good foam. Start small.
8 - I'd recommend a brush that is on the stiffer side. My brush is a little floppy and I think that's my problem when struggling to make foam.
9 - Don't ever use a straight edge when you don't have 30 minutes to dedicate to it. Last thing you want to do is rush. Shaving after a shower is the best. I invested a lot of money in the whole game pre kids when I had more time and sleep wasn't at a premium. Now that I have kids I might use the straight edge once a week. A DE shave is much better than Mach 3 shave, and much simpler than a straight edge. Therefore, the DE is my go to.
Also, price the razors out. They may be better kept as a collectors item.
|40 weeks 5 days ago||If one really wanted to, I'm||
If one really wanted to, I'm convinced you could get started in the DE world for less than $100. Then yearly soaps and blades could be bought for less than $15/year.
But it's way too easy to turn it into an expensive hobby.

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.

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.
