I am not sure that losing a close B1G championship game is not "sniffing" the tourney. I always thought that phrase meant not even close which is not the case for this year's team. They were sniffing it right until a weak penalty call and the PP goal by the Gophers.
|1 week 1 day ago||Wilson didn't transfer||
Wilson didn't transfer because he needed to. He transferred because he wanted to play some place else.
Sorry, unless you mean to raise his "pro stock" but he could have done that at NC State.
|1 week 6 days ago||If you watch play #2 again,||
If you watch play #2 again, you will see the Wisc. player jump right into Dawkins before the foul. That should have been called.
|1 week 6 days ago||Not only no foul there but||
Not only no foul there but the refs awarded the ball to the Badgers.
|1 week 6 days ago||It might have been even worse||
It might have been even worse than the statistics indicated. I know Ace likes to stay above it but I had to check the comments to make sure I was not the only one. Michigan was up on Wisky in the first half and I was still very angry and Wisky was keeping it close only as a result of the calls. Very disappointing. I will say that I don't blame the players - Wisconsin players seem to be a good group. Now about that Ryan guy...
|1 week 6 days ago||Wow, we are getting totally||
Wow, we are getting totally jobbed on the calls the last 5 minutes or so. Otherwise this lead would be double digits. No call has gone Michigan's way in more than 5.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Well stated. The transfer||
Well stated. The transfer talk, when based on nothing, is annoying.
|3 weeks 10 hours ago||I will just say I don't think||
I will just say I don't think that's an accurate depiction of what actually happened. Your version makes it sound like some devious plot that Beilein set up which just is not the case. I also don't think it's accurate to say he "dropped almost a whole round by coming back." Plus your stfu is an overreaction.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Not sure Michigan is "log||
Not sure Michigan is "log jammed" at QB when UM has no established (or presumtive) starter. Even if Shane wins the job, he only has this year and next.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||While I agree with some of||
While I agree with some of your points, if you are trying to equate the two behaviors (flipping him vs withholding information) there is a huge difference. Trying to re-recruit a player (after a new coach is put in place) that seemed very clearly to favor Michigan hardly seems unethical. If you think so then you might want to check if Meyer recruits committed players. No one is criticizing Meyer for that.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||That's not true. First, it's||
That's not true. First, it's not equitable that players are locked in and coaches are not, at least from a player's perspective. Second, the NCAA does make certain exceptions when coaches leave (obviously not enough) so your idea that a coach leaving should not matter is not suported.
We just got done saying about Harbaugh how much relationships matter to these kids when deciding on a school. You can't then turn around and say relationships and coaches do not matter. That's just not reality.
Again, Weber chose Meyer so he obviously made a poor decision if trust was a big issue but that does not make what OSU did okay.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||No, they should be honest but||
No, they should be honest but I would not expect you to understand the difference between the two.
|7 weeks 4 hours ago||Surprised that he is still||
Surprised that he is still considering UCLA after that comes out. Even if the DC returns, he basically lied to Smith. Why would you still want to go there? Just seems odd.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Remember that Steve said that||
Remember that Steve said that before Weber committed to OSU. It could have been in reference to Weber, we just don't know.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Give it 15 minutes and they||
Give it 15 minutes and they will all change their minds. No use speculating since NO ONE has a good handle on this.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||If you take that approach||
If you take that approach then why should there be any restrictions on where and when players can transfer? Why should they sit out a year? Why can their current teams dictate a destination?
Seems to me if you subscribe to the notion that players can protect themselves then you should also agree that schools do not need protection and players should be able to transfer at any time, without any type of restriction. Correct?

Nope, it's from Blue Hat, Green Hat by Sandra Boynton.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||I think those are all great||
I think those are all great points. But consider that some may have the view that Michigan has had some RB talent in the last 7 years and really could not find a complete back that could run effectively, block and move the chains. No difference makers and no guys that really very drafted high in the pros. Michigan has had some good guys (V Smith, etc.) but some criticism of the RB position post-Hart does seem warranted.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||If only we had hired our||
If only we had hired our first choice, Cutcliffe ...
|10 weeks 6 days ago||He probably was considered,||
He probably was considered, the question is was he available?
|12 weeks 3 days ago||And just to be clear, that||
And just to be clear, that did not start with Jake Ryan, it was used with Jack Johnson before that (Michigan hockey player).
|13 weeks 2 days ago||Well, it's reported on the SI||
Well, it's reported on the SI website. I tend to take those reports a bit more seriously than random twitter stuff. Sure, it contains some hedge language but looks to be pretty solid.
|13 weeks 3 days ago||I get that but a bigger part||
I get that but a bigger part of me just wants a win however it happens. MSU losing Narduzzi makes that more likely.
|14 weeks 5 hours ago||So you are saying that||
So you are saying that Michigan is eliminated if he reclassifies? I don't have any idea why that would be the case but you obviously have a solid source for that so I hope he does not reclassify. Does that mean Battle would reclassify also?
|14 weeks 1 day ago||Not Spartans or Buckeyes.||
Not Spartans or Buckeyes.
|14 weeks 1 day ago||At this point, I am not sure||
At this point, I am not sure even Harbaugh can live up to our expectations. It's like everyone assumes he will come, we will have the #1 ranked recruiting class, every starter will be a #1 pick and Michigan will win the national championship (Obvs). Michigan does have a few holes in its roster let's not forget.
But it it's not him, there is going to be a huge letdown.
|15 weeks 6 days ago||Because Gruden is always at||
Because Gruden is always at the center of every coaching search. Obvs.
|15 weeks 6 days ago||Yep, that sure is a "Scoop!"||
Yep, that sure is a "Scoop!" In summary, Michigan may or may not be waiting to talk with Harbaugh. If they wait on him and he doesn't choose UM, it may hurt Michigan's recruiting class. They may have asked to talk with Jones and Whittingham.

|15 weeks 6 days ago||Totally agree, is there||
Totally agree, is there something about OSU's offense right now that we would not LOVE to have? OSU ran the ball right over our "Manball" defense in late November many years counting. Miss St. would do the same, probably much more effectively than MSU. I hope the new coach will be more open to this versus the "coaching search consultants."

Let's see, I wish we could point to a 6'5" or 6'6" Canadian player that has thrived at Michigan and gone on to become a lottery pick.....
