Has McDowell committed somewhere? And how does 2 guys from 2014 and 1 guy from 2015 constitute a "trio". How does losing one guy mean that we are going to lose out on all three? This part of the post makes no sense to me.
The rest is obvious. Winning helps recruiting. Everyone knows that. The bottom line is that it is hard to win with a team of mostly freshman and sophmores. When we have stronger Senior and Junior classes, numbers wise, we will win more games. In the meantime, we have to weather losing some recruting battles.

This is my favorite feature of the blog. Love these.

Maurice Ways is so underrated. This incoming receiving group is amazing. I think you could make a strong case that any one of the three are the best receiver in Michigan's class. Hopefully they can contribute meaningfully as freshman.

Give me a break. It is way too easy to say that in hindsight. You could say that about any play imaginable.

Really don't think Brady Hoke deserves this kind of a reaction.
As far as I can tell, Hoke does things the right way. He loves his players, loves college football and loves Michigan. I don't think he's the one asking the athletic department to jack up ticket prices so that he can have "pretty things." He would be coaching Michigan football in a parking lot if he had to. College football is changing and becoming more and more commercialized by the day, sure, but certainly not at the behest of Brady Hoke.
To be sure, he's getting paid well. But I don't think he is coachingMichigan football for the money. I think this anger is misdirected. Someone sounds like a spoiled brat as far as I'm concerned, and it isn't Brady Hoke.

This message board is going to shit. I guess I'll stick to reading Brian's posts from now on and ignore the message board. What a horrible thread.

How do you address expectations for the Big Ten championship even with Ohio State as the heavy favorite?
"Well, I don't think we really worry about anybody else. If we do that, then we're losing sight of what's important, and that's us. We have high expectations. We have 42 Big Ten championships that have come before. We talk about that every day. We're trying to be the team that wins the 43rd. And so, I'll be honest with you, we have to worry about ourselves. If we do a good job not having distractions, do a good job with the way we come to work every day and come to Schembechler Hall, then we'll see."
Is this guy really asking if Hoke if he has conceded defeat to OSU this year? That's what it sounds like. This is the worst question I've ever seen. It's like, "do you still tell your team that the goal is to win the Big Ten championship even though you have no shot at beating Ohio State?" Am I reading this wrong?

And it begins. The endless threads asking about Michigan bars in [enter city here]. Football season is finally here.
|16 weeks 2 days ago||I know this is intended||
I know this is intended sarcastically, but in a way it's true. He isn't "automatically better," but the fact that he earned a scholarship is indicative of his talent and how he has performed in practice. He earned a scholarship with his performance in college rather than by pushing around kids half his size in high school. To me that says something.

It's funny that size is the primary concern for someone who seems to be consistently described as a bigger corner.

My thoughts exactly.
De'Veon Smith is such a Brady Hoke player. No way he doesn't see the field this year.

By "conflicting reports" do you mean one random schmo tweeted it?

He's out two weeks of his 3 weeks of practice before the first game. That isn't good. It could be a lot worse obviously. But he has a lot to learn in very little time. Most importantly, adjusting to the speed of the college game.

He likes that phrasing apparently: "With returning quarterback, Kain Colter and returning running back, Vendric Mark, no team will be able to stop the option."

Did a little kid write this article?
"Last season, Purdue did not have the turn out they wanted. With new head coach, Darrell Hazzel, he will use his running game to help win games.
With returning running back, Akeem Hunt, he will help the coach’s offense because of his great speed. Also, with such a great defensive line, ran by Ryan Russell and defensive backs ran by Ricardo Allen, no team will be able to throw or run the ball on the Purdue defense."

I feel like a nerd for following recruiting personally. I don't blame anyone that doesn't, especially if they don't follow it religiously.
Also, a coat of paint on the Big House? Who really cares? Some people have jobs and families.

I feel like Mo Ways has the biggest discrepancy between ranking and what you see on his highlights of any Michigan recruit I can remember. He must drop a lot of passes.

Not taking Devin Lucien? What has he done to prove that that was a mistake? I'd say that's still just an opinion at this point.
|24 weeks 4 days ago||Really? You man in the camps||
Really? You mean the camps where Watson was named the top performer? What are you talking about? They arent ranked high because they played three games their junior years. Did you read the post you are responding to?
|24 weeks 4 days ago||How can you post something||
How can you post something like this when you have never watched either of those players play a single down of football of any kind? It makes absolutely no sense.

Clearly a few people picked Clemson based on info (or the timing of his announcement) and the rest are just following suit.

I disagree. If the staff offered Canteen after Scott and KJ decided to go elsewhere I would agree with you, but that didn't happen. The coaches obviously were willing to take Canteen and discontinue their recruitment of Scott.
