yes, but the fact that "This happens a lot" means that Mattison should know that it happens a lot. I am guessing he was misunderstood, but that he also opened the door to being misunderstood. To clear Mattison of all blame is to put on maize-colored glasses.

Big surprise to come here to see that everyone is blaming the kid and his parents because, well, parents overreact. This may be true, and as many have stated in this thread, many, many parents overreact. Its what parents due. Which leads to the fact that Mattison should know this. The parents may have overreacted, but Mattison also probably fucked up. There should be zero cause for this sort of overreaction.

JH: See this guy to my right? He committed to Michigan yesterday. He's 17. He was your size right before he committed.
IM: You serious?
JH: Look at his picture on his phone.

This board is not your own personal fucking communication device. My guess is the same ego that led you to make those comments told you it was ok to post this. Get over yourself and grow up.

I like Jay's enthusiasm, but having a caged wolverine misses the point. Our mascot is a wild, elusive, ferocious animal, which is why we dont have one in person. Not having one in person is part of what it is - part of being a wolverine is its wild nature. To have one in person - whether actual beast or kitschy verisimilitude - would violate its meaning as a mascot.
I know we had one before, but this is my take on its manifestation now.

"/Drops mic" is way worse than IBD. At least IBD is not some dumb, unimaginative metaphor.

Amazing? Its awesome for Michigan that Harbaugh is so well connected, but based on your own data points, its not amazing, its quite understandable. Which is why he is worth the millions.

He strikes me as a good kid who has matured a lot. But he would have been lambasted on this board no matter what his decision was, no matter how he delivered it. Jones is matruing, while, if this board is any indication, Michigan fans are giong in the opposite direction.

I cannot fathom how someone goes from reading fan comments on an article about how an NFL team might, big might, draft a Michigan player and think, "Hmm, I should start the 3rd Funchess draft thread of the day over at Mgoblog." These redundant, useless, dumb threads are all swirming, festering, growing, and mating somewhere in the black hole of the internet and will one day come back as a big evil mega-beast with an outsized penis and with that penis destroy the earth and all of us normal people on it. Please stop contributing to that.

What is pathetic is the insecurity you must feel to lead you to create a straw man to hold yourself above a bunch of anonymous people in an internet thread. The truth is that nobody was saying what you stated. But I hope you feel good about yourself - you are clearly better than all of us.

I am not sure there has been a player at Michigan whose physical presence and playmaking ability, and occasional wow moments, inspired such awe, but whom I was so uninspired to root for.

You cant say "nothing much to see here" using that avatar. Those two things cannot come from the same source.
|1 week 6 days ago||"In my mind I was thinking"||
"In my mind I was thinking" <-- The tautology that belittles itself. If you really need to tell us that you think in your mind, then that mind should perhaps stop hitting the gym with its body and instead hit the books.

"and UM can't field a single competent QB."
Dont you mean "and UM couldn't field a single competent QB."? UM has moved on. You should too.

If you know anything about college football, you will know that there are spring and fall camps. And if you know that, you will know that there are innumerable reports about injuries, performances, etc., coming from those camps. You may then know that those reports impact Vegas odds. Thus, Vegas odds on January 14th mean squat - that is limited to anyone who knows anything about college football.

"It just seems like Beilein is not aggressively pursing these kids."
Without internal knowledge of the recruiting process, you have no fucking idea what you are talking about. You are just merely jumping to conclusions and missing your target by a long shot.

There is almost no information as useless as this on January 14th, nearly a year from which this game would be played.

I appreciate your satire. Appreciation threads are dumb. Which means this thread is dumb, which is very much the point.

Your avatar just got me fired. But it was worth it. May you not be sent to Bolivia.

There is such a feature, and for all intensive purposes it works.

I think there is a script in the app that closes it when a user attempts to post anything as gramatically egregious as "I've went to post." But it obviously doesn't catch all. Which is unfortunate.

Ummm, from a "competition of physical prowess." That was, you know, right there in my post.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||While frustrating for John||
While frustrating for John Harbaugh, its shit like this that makes football much more than just a competition of physical prowess. Its the accompanying strategery - part of which is deception, part of which is pushing the boundaries - that sets football apart.

"Touchdown Tyrone" is awful. Some guys with names like 'Wheatley", just dont need a nickname, and trying to give them one does them a disservice.

I've seen much more cleverness out of my 10 year old nephew.

I am sure Tyrone is not insulted if you don't care for Red Robin. I am sure he does not give a shit where you eat your burgers.

I heard Sam actually got to the bottom of the bottomless fries. Red Robin management told him something like, 'Cumong man, yo have to stop! This is your 58th refill of fries!'

Seriously? How dare you suggest something like that. Harbaugh only wears wrinke free. Its a huge time-saver.

The question is, would you be more of a fan of this thread if it had more boobs?

Sounds like this divorce is best for all parties. But I do like the toughness and leadership this demonstrates on Harbaugh's part. Its a priviledge to play for UM. Let's not act like its UM's priviledge for any one player to play there.
