|9 hours 36 min ago||Sam Webb thought he would be a good fit at Michigan because||
of the use of screens in the Michigan offense but he said he wasn't great at creating shots on his own.
|9 hours 38 min ago||Sam Webb talked about this the other day.||
Michigan told him they were waiting until the the end of July. I believe July is called an evaluation period because of the AAU teams playing. Sam said he felt Michigan wanted to look at some other options before desiding because there are always some players who emerge during this period and I assume this is where Beilein's eye for hidden talent is at it's best.
Sam thought Cumberland would fit very well in Michigan's system but he wasn't the only option they had.
It's also possible that Cumberland is using Cincy as a placeholder in case Michigan doesn't come through.
|12 hours 26 min ago||I'm not sure what "screwing" of the players is happening these||
days in professional sports. I guess you might find some examples in football with the injuries but I'll happily bend over daily for my screwing for half of the $145 million. It's ridiculous to even mention getting screwed when you are talking this type of money.
|17 hours 49 min ago||My guess is he was saying there was a lot of traffic between||
Oregon and Ann Arbor. I would assume Nike representatives just might be around to finalize a deal and for an announcement.
|20 hours 37 min ago||Has anyone ever dug out the dirt by the slab?||
That's what I thought was awesome. I knew he was going all out on the pitch at that point.
|1 day 1 hour ago||Are you assuming there is a 8 footer at the plate?||
Next you'll say he ran to home plate, grabbed a bat and hit the pitch for a home run.
|1 day 1 hour ago||Sam Webb was hosting the Huge Show tonight||
and said he has been noticing visitors coming in. Based on this traffic he said he would be shocked if Nike isn't announced very soon.
|1 day 4 hours ago||No he heard Nike was coming and left because||
they used underpaid Wallaby labor in their plants.
|1 day 8 hours ago||fixed it||
|1 day 9 hours ago||Screech pulled a knife out||
although he claimed it was to cut the umbilical cord.
|1 day 10 hours ago||You have it all wrong.||
The one taking the piece does the pushups and situps. The goal is to get better, not to sit around.
|1 day 10 hours ago||I think Chips Ahoy are allowed without the chips.||
The chips have to be removed or it's a secondary violation.
|1 day 11 hours ago||I have no doubt it's Nike, but not necessarily because||
of better product. Nke is one of the best at marketing and has a whole generation brainwashed that Nike makes you better and is the elite brand.
|2 days 2 hours ago||I found one thing I like less than this thread||
|2 days 7 hours ago||I understand you only want pro Nike posts here.||
The reason I post on these is to emphasize that Nike is a marketing at it's best and there really isn't a difference between these companies. They all put out good and bad stuff.
Also, there isn't a need to post a new thread every time someone on the internet expresses their opinion. This guy is probably getting more web traffic today than he usually gets in a year.
|2 days 7 hours ago||I think Hackett will take care of that. I don't see any||
deal getting signed unless we have approval over designs and I think he and Harbaugh are going for the traditional and maize look. The uniform is part of the appeal of Michigan and it shouldn't be played with.
|2 days 8 hours ago||Maybe he should do a story about laughingstock internet||
articles and use a few of his own stories as examples.
|2 days 8 hours ago||God I wish this would end. If it wasn't for the great marketing||
job Nike does, he would have found just as many shitty Nike and Under Armour uniforms.
All three suck because they try to come up with new designs when almost every conceivable design that makes any sense has already been used. They have to do outrageous because the good (normal) uniforms don't generate attention.
|3 days 8 hours ago||Maybe an apparel update?||
|3 days 20 hours ago||I believe he is also planning on taking official||
visits including to Michigan so he isn't close to being finished unless he changes plans.
|4 days 1 hour ago||I wonder if some of the low ranked recruits||
who have committed are not basically walkons, grayshirts or something similar or possibly were told it could happen depending on the numbers. Maybe Harbaugh sees something that you, Brian, Ace and others don't see, but it seems like we jumped on some of these guys early when there were a lot of supposedly more complete players out there.
Don't know if this is at all possible but I was wondering this even before Ace's story about the murky commit status that Harbaugh used at Stanford.
|4 days 1 hour ago||I don't know what damage Dean could have done||
playing more. The one thing that seems to be a given is that Pipkens had developed arthritis in the knee that was only going to get worse if he continued playing and that he had two concussions. Pipkens even said that Harbaugh said he wasn't going to get to the NFL. I see that as saying you've done a lot of damage to your body. Give it up before it gets worse and I think Harbaugh had good intensions from that standpoint and if they indeed couldn't use the scholarship it's an easy call.
If the scholarship could be used in some manner, it gets murkier in that maybe he could play but not at the same level similar to what you said with Dean. It doesn't necessarily rule out that he could be looking to add a player with higher upside than Pipkins may have now but it's also possible the "You'll never make it to the NFL. It's time to give it up." was still intended to avoid having him do more damage to his body in a meaningless desire to get to the pros. Harbaugh would have a pretty good idea of his pro possiblities based on his medical reports.
Harbaugh could also be taking the approach of getting rid of guys who he don't think are producing up to his expectations.
None of us know at this point because no one will admit to the third option. I've always given some benefit of the doubt to situations like Dean's at other schools because we don't have the medical history and I'm not going to dump on Harbaugh without hard facts on him doing an option 3 type thing. The one given is that it is very doubtful given Harbaugh's personality that we will see him explaining himself anytime soon.
|4 days 2 hours ago||So what you're really saying is||
you're pouting because you got negged before so you are going to say anything to show your superiority over the other board members.
|4 days 2 hours ago||I'm not sure this is true.||
I think the whole deal here is the scholarship is 4 years. That being said, there is no guarantee that you will see the field. It's seems that Pipkins thinks it does.
A lot of people are making assumptions here without knowing the facts. After all this is the internet. We're never going to know both sides because Harbaugh isn't going to talk about it. Well, maybe Rosenberg will come write a story to set the record straight. /s
|4 days 4 hours ago||I think people are automatically switching||
Stewart because he let it be known it was his dream school.
Stanford had good coaching but they don't have Harbaugh and staff.
|4 days 8 hours ago||Confirmed top 2016 target||
Scout is reporting the decision will be Friday.
|4 days 8 hours ago||It was a down year in Ohio and it never seemed||
like there was much news of Harbaugh pursing many kids there. That may have been partly due to Urban having them locked up. Let's face it, you have the National Championship coach who has been pursing the Ohio kids for 3 years or more. It's tough to make inroads in a short period of time. I think that had much more to do with it than Michigan's past record because Harbaugh seems to be doing fine other places despite Michigan's past record.
I think there will be more interest from Michigan and from kids in Michigan next year.
It doesn't make sense that the defensive players care more about Michigan's past records than the defensive players. I think the lack of interest by key players may be coming more from Michigan looking for certain things and recruiting for whatever traits they want. I don't think Harbaugh gives a damn about how the recruiting services view guys or what Michigan's rank is.
|5 days 5 hours ago||Although it is possible Michigan could have used it for||
Jhonny Williams or another transfer since there were rumors we were looking at wide receivers. You can't only look at the current roster because it could be holding up other developments.
I'm not saying the medical is right or wrong because we won't have enough information to know.
|5 days 7 hours ago||I'm questioning putting your address out there like that.||
I can see Sparty's taking advantage of it.
On the other hand I hear Wallaby's are chick magnets.
|5 days 10 hours ago||I'd imagine you could find a small suit somewhere||
to put him in which would make him "suitable" right? I think for graduation a tux would show more class though.
