|1 hour 12 min ago||Hardaway in draft||
Would you gets put it under or over 50% for chances you think he gets taken in the first round?
|7 hours 14 min ago||How about we get another comment||
How about we get another comment saying that it's not worth paying for a subscription and to get all your info here at mgoblog. There hasn't been enough comments like that yet.
|7 hours 27 min ago||OMG OP||
HOW DARE YOU START A THREAD ON THIS SO EARLY. I AM SO FREAKING PISSED AT YOU RIGHT NOW. GOSH FREAKING DAMN IT!
|18 hours 8 min ago||Info getting released||
If a recruit commits, you'll probably hear about within 30 seconds here actually instead of 30 minutes. Especially in the social media age. I don't think people pay for sites to hear the quickest info. They pay for it to more hear a "background" story in terms of what is going on in the "background" of a developing recruiting story or perhaps something like a story developing about the team (nice having a subscription to Scout during the 2007 and 2010 coaching searches).
|18 hours 12 min ago||ESPN Insider||
I quite enjoy ESPN insider. In addition to Michigan recruiting, there's always great articles about non-recruiting Michigan things, Buster Onley's blog (I personally think he's a very good writer), great fantasy articles (Eric Karabel and Keith Law), and the "Rumors" section for each sport...and much more. Even if you don't do the deal people talk about on here, it's still just $2.50 a month for 2 years. Quite good value.
|18 hours 26 min ago||Agree||
Some times when I edit certian pages to troll, it gets changed back within 15 seconds. But I remember it said I was the owner of the Grand Rapids Hoops for two years before someone changed it back.
|18 hours 31 min ago||My bad||
I'll go with Spencer Brinton then. Loved that guy.

|6 days 22 hours ago||Orb laid an egg||
Oxbow dominates the race from the start. Yikes.
|1 week 52 min ago||Orb betting odds update||
4/5 per NBC coverage
Trifecta I'd put down:
2. Govenor Charlie
|1 week 1 hour ago||They won't||
Pre-race coverage is scheduled at 4:30 but the race isn't until 6:18. They'll wait until hockey is over to cut into it. Pre-race coverage is currently on NBC Sports Network now anyways.
|1 week 2 hours ago||Sitting this one out too||
As I think Orb should win but they are expecting his odds to be 3/5 come post time. I bet on a bunch of exactas with Orb involved in the Kentucky Derby but didn't hit. If I were forced to bet, I'd probably mess around with a few exactas or trifectas with Orb winning and boxing the place and show. I like Itsmyluckyday as well for some reason too. Goldencents is sort of a speed horse, correct? So he could do well i this shorter distance but it sounds like the trainer is messing around with his diet and training all this week so he could either do real well or be a flop.
|1 week 2 hours ago||Preakness||
The 2nd leg of the Pursuit to the Triple Crown is upon us with the Preakness Stakes post-time set at 6:18pm this evening on NBC. Orb, the winer of the Kentucky Derby two weeks ago, is the clear-cut favorite to win as he sits at 10/13 odds per Bovada sports book. Orb has been training well all week.
Departing, Mylute, and Goldencents are said to be the main contenders according to the bettings odds.
If anyone is interesting in the races before-hand and pre-race coverage, 2:30pm to 4:30pm on NBS Sports Network there is coverage
|1 week 5 hours ago||yeah...||
Bentley does have an obnoxious voice lol. Almost worse than Seans.
|1 week 5 hours ago||Yes, it does||
Which is a real great aspect of ESPN Insider. "The Den" forum is a great place where Tom VH, along with Rothstein and the lovely Chantelle Jennings, are at most of the day interacting with posters and answering quetions. They are real down-to-earth people and will answer back to you quickly. Basically the opposite of The Beaver on Scout.
If you're into fantasy sports, there's a ton of great insider articles on that, which of course includes the popular Eric Karabell and Keith Law.
Someone mentioned it above, but it takes a couple months for ESPN the Mag to come your way but it does eventually come.
|1 week 17 hours ago||My thoughts - West Michigan sports radio||
I do think Sean has all-around good sports knowledge and is fairly objective about college sports even for being a Sparty fan. My problem is him spending all this time trying to constantly prove that he isn't a Sparty slappy and try to imitate these people he claims that call him a Sparty slappy. Who exactly is saying this stuff about you, Sean? Just kind of annoying sometimes, although I like that he sticks on topic of sports topics I'm usually pretty interested in hearing about. I'm not going to lie in that I think "The Skip" is pretty damn funny even though it can get repetative. I have to laugh whenever he talks about ciggarates. The Lou Holtz stuff is funny maybe once a year before the Michigan-ND game but otherwise it gets real old. They tried to do Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne last month and it was just awful and completely unfunny.
The Huge...the guy is obviously a grade-A blowhard. I think he does have a good radio voice, though, and is a good interviewer. His rants about the Lions sucking are hilarious and I love it when he rips on OSU. He just needs to grow up a bit. When someone calls him a bad name, he gives them more incentive for someone to do it again by talking about it on the air for an hour.
I always forget their names, but I really like the "sub" guy on The Huge Show that subs in when Bill is on vacation. I think he was on today actually. He's probably my favorite radio voice locally.
Then there's Bently...that guy is a grade-A goofball. He strikes me as a guy struck in the 1980s. He is always talking about Dr B and his age-clinic every damn minute it seems like. That being all said, he can be quite entertaining and I like his co-host.
|1 week 3 days ago||Tressel||
I remember there was an interesting tidbit in Three and Out from Bacon on how friendly Tressel was at Big Ten meetings. But still, the guy was a snake and sketchy when the cameras weren't on him. Cool pick, though, OP. Your facial expression is priceless and I think that's the best you could have done without making a scene by noticeably frowning or something along the lines of that.

Ask Rick Lumpkin on the Recruiting HQ facebook page.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Pistons||
Ford as the possible players that could go to the Pistons as (nothing factual of course):
Ben McLemore, Otto Porter, Anythony Bennett, CJ McCollum, and Shabazz Muhammed.
I really think the Pistons are looking for a 2-4 position right now, rather than a PG.
If the Pistons were to get a good draft pick and get a nice free agent signing (has plenty of cap room), they could probably at make the playoffs next season. Unfortunuetly, I don't trust Joe D anymore.

is Jarvis Jones. No suprise
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Calvin, The Survey||
The article is a of a survey that was 100% annoymous and so it doesn't say. I am a Calvin College grad myself, class of 2010, and I didn't notice that that was one of the answers until I saw the comment here. I am curious who it would be, especially considering Calvin does not have football.
Also ForeverBlue, say hi to Mr. Crow for me. I haven't him seen him for a bit.
EDIT: Oops, I see the reply below mine was to you which answered your question. Now that I think about, I bet it is Brookhuizen. His ex-girlfriend went to Calvin (I know her so it's not creepy that I know this!) ...I know he isn't on the team, but do you think he was still included in this survey?
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Just a tidbit from the article||
Which hasn't been mentioned:
If you had to do it over again, would you have gone to Michigan?
|4 weeks 2 days ago||I'd like to see him shoot much more next season||
and JB give him the green light to shoot at will. This may sound like a vague statement I know. There may be times where one will be upset if he took that shot with someone in his face and missed, but a shooter like him will easily make up for it by hitting a couple threes with a man in his face a couple minutes later.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Who gives a shit||
She's not reading these comments and doesn't know my SN on The Den anyways
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Chantell Jennings||
I didn't know Chantell Jennings was so damn cute. I need to hit on her more often when I post to her in The Den forum.
|5 weeks 21 hours ago||Huge||
Huge is kind of an ass-clown but he is actually a really good interviewer.
As for the interview, very good stuff and Drake and his dad did real well in the interview. As much as I am not an Izzo fan, it sounds like he handled it like a class-act when Drake decommitted from MSU and hopes to remain as a mentor in his life. As for Dantonio, you can tell Drake didn't want to talk about him and I bet he told the Huge before hand to keep the questions on him recruiting Drake to a bare minimal because it's obvious Dantonio didn't do much recruiting of him in the first place.
A little tidbit from the interview, it sounds like Michigan giving him a video presenting off all the great WR's wearing number 1 at Michigan really impressed Drake. Coming from someone who has seen quite a bit of his high school games the last couple of years, I am confident Drake could easily be the next WR to wear the number 1 jersey by the time he's a junior.
|5 weeks 21 hours ago||Mr Harris||
He has a rep as just being one of those very loud dads at sporting events, but he's just vocal at sporting events and perhaps enjoys the spotlight, but not neccessarily a bad person like say Kevin Grady Sr.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Yep||
Just like Kyle Broflovski convincing the Family Guy staff to air the episode showing Muhammad
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Tom is a good guy||
Tom is great at interacting with board posters on the ESPN MDen Forum and doesn't act like a jackass like The Beaver does on Scout.
Sean is pretty annoying about recruiting. He spent a whole show in February saying how good recruiting doesn't guarantee success. Well duh, Sean, who the hell ever said it does?

Now she can finally get laid
