Cowherd, happy: Ratings.
Harbaugh, happy: Sowed discomfort and diplayed no fucks given.
This is a win-win.

He's visiting OSU the weekend just before his decision though. I'm betting Ohio State knows they have until then to land their preferred guys, and if not they'll take Mitchell. Everything I've read says he's had them as the first choice.

I think people are probably thinking the other way around: perhaps Harding isn't as desired by Harbaugh's staff and may be encouraged to move on? I haven't heard any of that, but my guess is the conjecture is just as likely on M's part as Harding's.

Still need a WDE though, that's an absolutely essential need. X. Kelly and Daniel Joseph, then this kid. Need to have multiple oars in the water. I assume they'd take whoever's first.
But I'm still confused about the SDE, WDE, and Buck LB positions. We'll have an SDE position, that seems clear. Do the WDE and Buck stay on the field at the same time? If Buck is essentially a SAM who can put his hand down, doesn't that fly in the face of the nickel defense Brian and Co. have been saying Durkin will run? Nickel means Peppers as the fifth DB along with two safeties, which means two ILB's. Is that WDE the Buck LB in that scenario?

Ace put in a ballz for him to M back in January. A more recent pick in June has him going to Oregon. But only 4 ballz overall.
247 does say Drevno visited him on April 30, so we're still after him, apparently.

I like V4, much less panicky
You talk about losing mo with Xavier Kelly, but I thought he kept recruiting close to the vest. The ballz there may be even less reliable than normal. And if Daniel Joseph is really 50/50 UM vs Sparty, we should be in decent shape there. They've got two excellent WDEs and Michigan has zero and nothing established on the roster (though I have high hopes for both Taco and Marshall). Playing time should be a major sell. If we pull one of either of those two, get Mitchell, Upshur, and Gary, this is a phenomenal class

2017, so far away. Kelly could burst or go to the NFL. Interesting news, but so much time to find an elite TE in that class

Marcus Ray had some damning with faint praise of him on Webb's show. He fit the part, passed eyeball test, big kid, good frame. Man-to-man skills were "adequate", had good feet. But overall it sounded like the kid didn't really stick out that much, other than size.

Welcome to Michigan Devery, great news, great name
|1 week 2 hours ago||Based on that alone, I'm||
Based on that alone, I'm going to say he'll reconsider before signing day. It's one thing to make up your mind the night before you announce something that will happen several months down the road. It's another when those months dwindle away, and faced with the prospect of actually moving that far away - in terms of distance and culture.
Alabama is going to add a shitload of DL between now and signing day, all probably higher ranked than Kareem. If competition at MSU was a factor, this kid will reconsider.

That leaves a bit of a mark. But we'll see if it sticks - long way to signing day.
|1 week 7 hours ago||Sam Webb wasn't able to go||
Sam Webb wasn't able to go gut-feeling on Kareem yesterday, he seemed to think another kid (his good friend, someone in Michigan) committing to Sparty would factor into the decision. Didn't say he was Sparty-bound, but it would affect the decision. Given Sam gave this as the response to the caller's question on Kareem, I took it as an ominous sign.
IOW, if that was something but not an overriding factor, I would have expected him to say "it'll make a difference, but M is still in good position" or something to that effect. Did anyone hear his update today (podcasts never play for me)?

gd it who masterbated between 5 and 7 pm (besides me)? Couldn't it have waited until after the announcement (no.)?

I thought the consensus was that coach was a Sparty guy, didn't care for M? Totally understand that widely-accepted notion could be absolutely incorrect, but I thought that was the thinking.

Almost doesn't count - lots of good teams almost lost somewhere along the way, but didn't. The OSU game in Columbus was one for the ages - they had a fantastic offense, so did Michigan. And USC was the best team in the country that year. 2006 was a great team.
- holy fuck that team was loaded: Henne, Hart, Long, Breaston, Manningham, Lamarr Woodley, Leon Hall, Alan Branch, David Harris, Shawn Crable (no!), Tim Jamison. They lost to two great teams, one on the road, the other a virtual road game. This was a great, great team.

He was also 4th string at times during the spring, obviously meaning he was behind a walk-on. Harbaugh was "challenging him" to improve, but he didn't put Malzone or Morris at 4th string. He has Fall camp and plenty of time - literally years - to improve, move up, and take the job someday. But right now he's definitely the odd man out.

I think you're probably right.
And I think I was incorrect - the fourth visitor Wednesday is a 2017 OL, also from NJ.

Great news. Biggest offers from Miami, Louisville, Colorado.
Always good to get more Florida
|1 week 5 days ago||Is it Ron Johnson, Brad||
Is it Ron Johnson, Brad Hawkins, Amir Mitchell, and Donald Stewart that are visiting on Wednesday? Stewart went to Stanford recently, called it his dream offer, and ballz have been shifting there lately.
Johnson and one of the 2 receivers are critical in my mind. Johnson and Khalid would be a great duo at DE, but maybe more SDE types. Get them in, pull another elite WDE. If we get one of Mitchell and Hawkins this summer, there's plenty of time to bring in another elite WR.
Per 247, looks like Mitchell visits Ohio State today and ND tomorrow.
|1 week 5 days ago||True, but you must mean||
weird-awesome. Like Lawful-good in D&D back in the day, these coaches have Weird-Awesome, or Awesome-Weird twitter presences.
I wasn't sure about Partridge - the Blue Swarm thing wasn't my cup of tea, and the constant references to Michigan Nation (like many, I grate against XX Nation anything) weren't the greatest. An Always Sunny reference though, is pretty spectacular.
|1 week 5 days ago||He also mentioned that||
He also mentioned that Michigan will probably be in it for EJ Price, and they've been involved for a little while.
Also also, David Reese is still committed, loves Michigan, his parents are both educators so the M degree means everything. The rumors of wavering are probably due to the fact that he hasn't been ensured he'll be a LB by M's coaches, they've said they'll give him a shot. Schools like Louisville and Kentucky are selling him on the fact that he's a LB guaranteed, so if he really wants that in college - a guarantee he'll play LB - he wants a fallback option.

come back for what? We don't build anything in the US anymore. This is a simplistic answer and I don't have the data, but anecdote-ally we're simply not creating the jobs that require traditional trade skills. Isn't that the case?
|2 weeks 6 hours ago||Your core argument is||
Your core argument is correct, but there's a very big difference between healthcare and college: healthcare costs are essentially unknown, so there's no comparison of prices between care providers. Consumers don't include price in their decision because they don't know it. Yes, for terminal cases you'll pay anything for the best care. But for a broken foot? This type of care is a commodity and prices should be known, and there should be a cost/benefit to the individual for choosing higher/lower cost of such a service. Doesn't work that way today. You either have insurance or you don't, it's either covered or it's not; consumers don't compare prices of the providers. Massive distortion of the market.
Colleges don't have that issue, prices are well known and considered. The easy loans distort the market, but consequences of that decision are known.
