Kind of sounds like his MSU offer is gone...
|2 days 17 hours ago||How many?||
Assuming Kenny and Glasgow keep their scholarships... How many players are we above the 85-man limit?
|2 days 17 hours ago||Ridiculously large incoming class||
29 recruits and like what 10-12 PWOs?
I'll take quantity at this point in Harbaugh's tenure. It gives him a large foundation to build off of and each guy that doesn't pan out in the end will hurt less.
It is how Saban started at Alabama (first class was 32 players!), and what Butch Jones's at UT tried to do as well with his 34(?) player class a couple years ago.
|2 days 20 hours ago||What did I expect...||
I honestly deluded myself into think that Bama's streak of #1 classes would end this year... Instead, they cap off a class containing the #10, #15, #17, #35, #62, and #64 players in the nation.
|2 days 21 hours ago||6th year in a row...||
Alabama and Saban are on pace to finish with the "recruiting title" for the 6th year in a row.
I believe they jumped from #7 to #1 after commitments from 5* ILB Ben Davis, 5* OLB Lyndell Wilson, and 4* Terrell Hall.

I think Mike Farrell has been a lead writer or one of their lead since Rivals was found in 1998.
|3 days 13 hours ago||OT-ish...||
Clemson's offical YouTube channel just strategically released a "DL U" video on the NSD Eve...
|1 week 1 day ago||North Team||
I was bored and watched the North team practice a couple days ago. OSU's Braxton Miller was just dominating every DB he was matched up against and skill drills.
Coaches were saying Miller had the potential to skyrocket up draft boards.
|1 week 3 days ago||PLUS...||
Having Gary's two "best friends" in Walker and DwumFour can't be bad!
|1 week 3 days ago||Come on up Gary!||
As several people have already said, it is much better than going to Alabama.

|3 weeks 2 days ago||Nick Saban's Class of 2008||
Out of curiousity, I was going to try and rationalize all this by saying Saban has oversigned by a lot more at Alabama. During my google-fu, I was led to an old MGoBlog post by Brian back in 2008.
In Nick Saban's 2nd year at Alabama, he lost 15 seniors and signed a class of 32 recruits, but magically got under the 85-scholarship limit. Harbaugh is losing 13 seniors (+ 3 banked scholarships), and is now supposedly hoping to finish the class with ~30 players...
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Scholarship count?||
I saw a lot of people were saying that Kenny Allen may have to come back as a walk-on/not have his scholarship renewed to get under the 85-man limit.
Is that still being predicted to happen?
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Allotted||
92/85 with Rashan Gary, Isaac Nauta, Lavert Hill, and others still on the board. Well this will be interesting...
|1 year 1 week ago||Urban's 2012 Class||
I wouldn't mind seeing a quick comparison of Urban's initial class. On paper, it looks like a solid class (http://ohiostate.247sports.com/Season/2012-Football/Commits), but which were recruited by Meyer and their level of impact.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||Realistically, how many||
Realistically, how many recruits does Michigan still have a shot at for this year?
Unrealistically, say Harbaugh isn't able to land a single recruit by signing day (February 3rd/April 1st), how deterimental is that?
|1 year 24 weeks ago||I don't know about you...||
but I don't exactly feel all that great about beating Ohio in 2011. Yes, it was great to finally break the streak, and to have a +1 in the win column, but everyone also knows it was historically one of their worst seasons ever.
It just made it seem like the only way we could have broken the streak was because they were horrendous. I don't know, maybe I'm alone in that sentiment.
|2 years 6 weeks ago||Charged dropped||
The charges were most likely dropped because she realized she would probably get charged with assault/battery. While there was modicum of chance that Hyde could successfully plead self-defense.
|2 years 8 weeks ago||Agreed.||
My family and I met him once on a trip down to Columbus. My dad asked for a picture with Gee and the guy was hella charismatic. Gee talked to all of us, asked our names, playful jabbed at us when he found out where we were from, and had us laughing in the short 2 minutes.

My friend was on the soccer team, and she wanted to be a business major (was hoping to own her own business/gym one day). Her advisor, however, was very persistent in her becoming a sociology major even though she said had no interest in the subject.
Now she's graduated, working as a personal trainer with a Sociology degree from Michigan that she'll probably never use.
|2 years 9 weeks ago||Observation & Question:||
I was at The Game this year, and I saw several players from both teams flipping the bird over the course of 3+ hours. So I have mixed feelings about punishing a player solely because he got caught on national TV doing it.
Hall should've known that the cameras would be on him after an ejection, but he got punished then shouldn't the refs started penalizing EVERY single player that does it? Like having one official who's sole job is to monitor the sidelines and make sure everything is staying PG.
Ultimately, Hall should have probably recieved an additonal 1-game suspension I think though. Just for the sake of consistency.
|2 years 20 weeks ago||Rivalry aside...||
Damn if Pryor doesn't just pour his heart out onto the field.
|2 years 39 weeks ago||What is George Whitfield Jr.'s background?||
I hadn't even heard his name until Johnny Football broke out last year, and then Braxton Miller spent some time with him this winter too.
What makes him a "quarterback guru?"
|3 years 9 weeks ago||I'm conflicted.||
I really only know one Notre Dame fan, and he's relatively quiet about it.
My workplace, however, is filled with "SEC fans." The type of fans that end their e-mails with "S-E-C! S-E-C! S-E-C! S-E-C! S-E-C! S-E-C!" to signify the streak (He's a Vanderbilt alum...). Or guys that yell "Roll Tide!" EVERY SINGLE TIME THEY SEE EACH OTHER... I don't know if I can take another year of it. It needs to end.
|3 years 10 weeks ago||Not sure if serious||
The comment is referring to how the staff has 3 coaches with D-Line coaching experience: Jerry Montgomery, Greg Mattison, and Brady Hoke, while the O-line only has Darrell Funk.
|3 years 10 weeks ago||It just so damn frustrating...||
That fucking Urban went 12-0 in his first year in the B1G. I'm just going to chalk it up to a down B1G year... fuck.
|3 years 10 weeks ago||Well, this was back in like week 5 or 6.||
The announcer said that Simon had injured it towards to end of fall practice, so he had been playing through the pain up until then. I'm assuming that the same shoulder is still injured, and is the cause of these reports.
