From the video, it certainly looks like a pre-arranged agreement between Winston and the guy behind the counter.
|4 days 5 hours ago||The attention this is going||
The attention this is going to get in the media because of Winston admitting to a violation is going to be tremendous for Michigan recruiting. It is going to highlight the fact that the Michigan coaching staff really are the best equipped coaches to prepare you for the NFL, right down to the draft inteview process.

I don't know if this is based on a first hand observation or just a tad bit racist lol
|6 days 7 hours ago||I don't know why people down||
I don't know why people down voted you for this. I too was surprised that the quotes weren't a bit more positive. The coach's quote sounded like he was tempering expectations, saying he won't be at that level for at least a couple years. It sounded from both quotes like they were saying "lower your expectations a little".
His coach is no Fred Jackson, that's for sure.

Upon reading the thread title, I thought you were going to make some asinine comment about recruits perception of UM vs. Kentucky. I think you actually might be onto something here though. Belien has made a few comments over the last year that would lead me to believe that this is definitely a contributing factor.

That was the most inaccurate statement possible. The kid has impressive skill but crappy athleticism.
|1 week 2 days ago||As an 18 year old 6 foot tall||
As an 18 year old 6 foot tall 190lb senior in high school, I could barely dunk. As a 21 year old 6 foot tall 215lb Junior in college, I could put my elbow on the rim. You can definitely improve your athleticism through hard work in the gym and natural development from your teen years to young adulthood. I know from experience.

So then I guess that is A) LeVert B) Brown C) Williams D) Bielfedt ?
I would be ecstatic about A, B, or C and perfectly content with D. This team is going to be really good next year.

That makes sense. Thanks.

I am not positive but I do not believe that you can become a walk-on after having been on scholarship. Can anyone with more knowledge clarify?

Which shows you that Brown's interest in Michigan is genuine.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Is the thought that he could||
Is the thought that he could have the surgeries and redshirt next year completely unreasonable? It seems like a year they could afford not to have him and he could come back the following year at 100% no question and if Walton has a break out year and leaves, the team is Spikes to run in 2016.

This might not have to be removal from the team. If he was driving again it obviously would but maybe just some alcohol counseling and a partial season suspension will do for this one. Maybe that is just wishful thinking? I have no sympathy for DUI's as you are putting others at risks but this seems like a somewhat victimless crime and as a college senior, it would be awfully hard to obstain completely from drinking (though he should have had plenty of incentive with obligations to his teammates and all).

Holy crap those jerseys are bad. I said I didn't mind them when I saw the pictures. Boy was I wrong.

It certainly seems like it to me. I could be wrong but the fact that he was practicing for the first week of spring ball (and was reportedly still the leader or at least in the mix for a starting role) before making this decision leads to believe that this is the case.

There is a joke in there somewhere with pushing Butt from behind. I'll let you all use your imagination.

If you switched the tops so that they matched the top half of the shorts, I would actually like these.

He looks pretty skilled for his size. I think if this kid gets through camp Sanderson he has the potential to be a beast.

I am baffled. What is even the point of it? I was aware of the roll damn tide incident but I had no idea it was such an empidemic.
|18 weeks 2 days ago||Good point. I had not put||
Good point. I had not put that together. You may remove one layer of skepticism.
|18 weeks 2 days ago||He went to Columbia before||
He went to Columbia before being a big time NFL player. He is very inteligent and well connected. He tends to have good info and doesn't rumor monger (he is on the Radio during rush our here in LA on ESPN radio. He is the only reason anyone tolerates Max Kellerman on said radio show). I tend to trust what he says, however, I fail to see why he would get this sort of info first in this situation. I remain skeptical.

Brian mentioned yesterday that he is connected to Harbaugh's agent
|18 weeks 4 days ago||As a teacher I can honestly||
As a teacher I can honestly say there is a chance I would do this if I thought it was what was best for my students (even if I believed what was TRULY best for them was for me to remain their teacher). I think this is a similar situation where Hoke cares about the student athletes that were under his care and is more concerned with their well being than his own pride. So yes, I could see him doing this.

Let me start by saying that I totally agree with you 100%. However, I think the people who are saying he should have stayed are making the argument that, had he stayed and developed his talent for another year with Belien and Lavall Jordan at UM, he might be making those millions you speek of now instead of that 150K. And while pretty much all of us here on the board would play basketball till we could no longer use our legs for 150K, there is no denying that everyone, given the choice, would chose the millions if it was a posibility .

Get out of here Dave Brandon and stop trolling WD. It's not his fault you got fired.
Edit: Fake Wolverine Devotee comment was deleted and now mine makes no sense.

Is this a list from the unique perspective of Vincent Smith or did you colaborate with former teamates to come up with this list? Either way, we all greatly appreciate the insight.

I started punching those names along with Michigan into google and this turned up:
Obviously this seems to be just plain rumor mongoring but I thought it was worth sharing. I'll see what else turns up.
