Defense isn't prioritized. And frankly they're allowed to get away with poor effort. That's on Beilein. It may have been Novak and Morgan that demanded that effort and held the team accountable, because no one is doing it now.
It's also impossible to take a charge now, which was a hallmark of Beilein defense. If one could say it ever had a hallmark.

I disagree. The constant targeting of him despite the low likelihood of actually getting a completion put their offenses behind the sticks. OC's hate to be behind the sticks. I think it was a case of looking at the run defense, noping out of that, seeing the high safety, figuring that the only way to make hay was to "break" Lewis. I think OC's continually challenged their guys, saying the only way they could win was to beat Lewis. Didn't work. Not much did unless you had a spread like Indiana or OSU, sure. But throwing at Lewis most often meant 2nd & 10 went to 3rd &10 or 3rd & 10 went to punt. Go at the other corner with your second best receiver, or try the LB's with a TE. Lewis passed all the tests, he should have been avoided.

Article title is a real stretch. His leaders are explicitly stated: "Alabama, Texas, Georgia, Florida, UCLA and USC are still my top schools,”
He then goes on to say he'll go to Florida State over spring. The only connection seems to be when the interviewer brings up Michigan and spring ball at IMG, at which point he makes comment on them.
Good news, worth posting, but ESPN is leading a bit astray here.

Is there even a question of Ryan Glasgow not receiving a scholarship? My goodness he's one of the best players on an outstanding defense.
Allen too, he's certainly earned it.

He wants to get into business. He was on CNBC with Bob Kraft, and I believe that's a big part of what his Uggs relationship is about.
He'll definitely consult with the team I'd bet, definitely be around the program, but I think jetsetting businessman is his vision. More power to him.

Great day for Jay Harbaugh. Espn asked all the recruits for their most important criteria in selecting a school. Asiasi said it was the position coach and how much he thought he could learn from him.

I do like the idea of that thread. If something big happens, sure a new thread, but beyond that a monster thread covering the news would be preferred.

My guess, and it's probably a poor one, is that the hiccup was Tagaloa wanting to stay west. Theorizing that they originally both settled on Michigan, Boss backed away, and Asiasi still wanted to come. Decoupling what seemed to be a real package deal was the hiccup.

Sam Webb recruiting round-up:
Clemson a real threat for Gary, lots of things on their side. But no one he's talked to has been willing to say Clemson is going to be the pick. No gut feel, but still Michigan.
Nothing he has heard on Onwenu would convince him he's going anywhere but Michigan. "There would be a lot of people" very surprised if it was anything but Michigan. That probably means he talked to Wilcher. Never know how it can shake out (rememebr Weber... actually no don't), but still feels Michigan.
Hill is the same. MSU is a real threat, PSU has even come back on. But based on what he's heard he still feels it will be Michigan.

EPIC. Everything Harbaugh. It all must be EPIC.
|1 week 18 hours ago||PWO program||
This also very quickly builds a roster of "his guys". Hopefully the entire team feels like that always, but when the walk-ons are hand-picked and the coach's guys, it gets that locker room reflective of HARBAUGH even more quickly.

Are they admitted under the same guidelines as the other recruits, ie 2.5 GPA minimum and ACTscore (whatever they are), or do they still need to apply as a part the general student body?
I've always assumed the former, and if yes, it's an enormous benefit of being a PWO at a school like Michigan.

Michigan will recruit more players to play TE over his 4/5 year career, and they will be much higher rated than those that Iowa State recruits.

Yeah I just saw the Lorenz and Wiltfong ballz
Always possible this is just a big fish in a little pond thing. Doesn't have to hack his way through so many highly rated bodies for playing time.

Davis has insisted over and over that he is a RB, not a FB. And the coaches recruiting him as such, this per Sam Webb.

There's a lot of logic in your hypothetical. If there were a draft and all young people had to serve and put there livesin danger, there'd be much greater opposition to war.
Something as stupid as Iraq or the incredibly prolonged conflict in Afghanistan simply wouldn't have occurred.

Predisposition to CTE? Does the article address that, or are there any studies that suggest a genetic predisposition? There has to be an explanation for the difference in effect on Sash vs. Desmond Howard, as an example.

Dim-witted commentary. An obtuse belief in his own cleverness, that alternating "nice" posts with wilting criticims would convince anyone - in this era of Harbaugh optimism - that he's a Michigan fan who's truly disillusioned with the state of the program. After a 10-3 season and with the current #6 recruiting class. Committed to his trolling, given the join date.
This poster is dumb and committed in his hate for Michigan, so it's hard to tell if he's a Sparty or Buckeye. But the fear gives it away.
