And Beilein just keeps coaching them up. The experience for as young as this team will be (still) next year is goign to be amazing.

Yep - good to see Irvin step up. Hopefully this carries through the rest of the year.

They are going to be phenomenal for a couple years, barring another wave of players leaving for the NBA.

With Walton back they would have to be a favorite to make it through a couple rounds... How many are there in NIT?

I'm hoping for NIT just so we get to see Spike in that many more games.

I agree - loaded. If these classes were the recruiting classes Harbaugh brought in, no one would say the team wasn't loaded. This very article talks about position of the 2016 class as potential top 15. With Hoke's classes at 21 over last few years, there isn't too much difference between that and 15.
Hoping for strong strides forward from those who are staying. (Any one else notice there hasn't been too much attrition? Maybe students staying as under Hoke will continue...)
|3 weeks 3 days ago||You do not have ANY moral||
How does the actions and honesty of coaches at OSU in the recruiting process have anything in common with the actions of individual football players on the team over the last few years? One has nothing to do with the other. No one is happy about those player issues, but they have nothing to do with this discussion.

Agree with all this. Even 17 "units" in four years should not be a barrier for anyone. Does anyone expect not to take four years of math, english, or some type of science?
I guess maybe some students that are not looking to, "play school," but it seems the bar to clear here is fairly low and we seem to have a fairly low standard of expectations for our kids. How does a university hold itself up as an academic standard bearer when they are essentially saying you can average less than 5 hours of class a day and still get into a B1G university?
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Actually, if you are playing||
Actually, if you are playing for the national championship, it is not overblown at all, as discussed here on MGoBlog a few times. From this article, the following:
If you want to win championships, you need to recruit top players. MSU fans can laugh about winning the recruiting championship and it not panning out on the field, but no one has gotten over the hump of not recruiting well and winning it all. Maybe with the new playoff format it will happen, but we haven't seen it so far.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||I dont think people get how||
This is a great point. Our 2014 D was extremely experienced, and 2015 looks to be equally experienced. This should continue to be a strength for the team, and once the special teams and offense gets going, it will only make the defense statistically that much better. (less three-and-outs, better field position, etc.)
We do need some players from this year to pan out as juniors in 2017, and for some of our current freshmen and RS FR to work out. If too much attrition happens on defense, we could have a problem, but hopefully Durkin, Mattison, or whoever will be the coach in 2017 will coach them up to Harbaugh standards.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||On the plus side, Durkin and||
On the plus side, Durkin and Drevno HAVE been evaluating talent (even if Harbaugh has not) this year. I am always reassured when the report is an offer went to a kid that has a relationship already with one of the assistants.

The original post says Durkin made the offer. Should this be Drevno?

Very optimistic about the OL this year. Seven months from now I'm hoping the Utah and Oregon St games show us what upper classmen and elite OL coaching can do.

This reminds me of when Harbaugh was shown on Inside Michigan Football, first time after the announcement at Schembechler Hall, running into Pipkins. Harbaugh grabbed him and made some jabs at him, and Pipkins just backed up grinning. I don't think he had any idea what to do with this introduction!
Linkk to video, see 3:23 mark.

This, and a solid resume of sending players to the NFL from the college coaches.

It's from the Harbaugh family, from when Jack Harbaugh was a child, the story passed down to emphasize the "appreciate-what-you-have" motto for the family.
