I've heard more than a couple highly rated kids mention their distaste for anything not Nike.

Part of the tour is with the academic advisors, the focus on academics is stressed and there is a lot of discussion on preparing for life after football.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||There were a couple of factors...||
he got guaranteed admission into their engineering school which UM couldn't offer. He never spoke with anyone from engineering at Michigan because he was interested in the sports management program when he visited, so he never got the engineering pitch. Essentially he was choosing a major as much as he was choosing a school. The losing didn't help obviously, but he watched 1 Michigan game and 1 Alabama game all year and those were on his visits. He isn't a college football fan, which is understandable. Saturday was his day to get away from football. It was very close between the two and there were plenty of family members close to him who expected him to choose Michigan.

coaches. We went out to eat when he came to recruit Dashawn and he is a really likeable guy who's young and down to earth and relates to these younger players on an entirely different level.
|7 weeks 15 hours ago||I have debated this||
With friends the last few months. I figured you couldn't bench a player with a Legends jersey right? That's the kind of PR that DB would lose sleep over. But will a new offense even the playing field? Devin knows just as much about this offense as Speight and Morris, which takes away his biggest advantage over the other two. Then it seems to be a question of talent and decision-making. We all had moments last season where Devin would cycle around in the pocket and the we would yell at the screen "stop f---ing doing that!" If someone else is more willing to throw the ball away and take fewer risks, will they have an advantage? Not guessing, just curious, think Russell Wilson. All that being said, my original point stands, I couldn't see having the reincarnated Tom Harmon jersey wearer not starting.

I think they are fun, I don't understand why everyone has to be so negative. If they are worn on Saturdays, then fuss, but can't everyone just be less serious?

If this were SEC football, then the narrative would be how competitive it is.

There aren't coaches or playing situations where you live that you wouldn't prefer for your child? You aren't prioritizing athletics over education unless the education at the new school is worse. An equal education, a familiar coach, and a better possibility at a free college education? The choice seems obvious

I've started on Shameless which has been good through 2 seasons.

A number of times, being around Dashawn, Tim Settle, and Matt Burrell. I would have michigan on the list being a fan, but the rest of the list would be the usual suspects. It also depends on my position as well and the depth chart. I'd be a wr/cb so I'd consider fsu, Bama, lsu for cb and Michigan, fsu, USC, Clemson, and Oklahoma

Why anyone is complaining about his salary. It's not like anyone here is paying it. Nothing you buy is going to his salary anyways. I'd be happy if UM paid top dollar for all of it's coaches as long as they win and maintain a good reputation.
|16 weeks 18 hours ago||Yes he does. When I visited||
Yes he does. When I visited with Hand, Wellman talked about it. Not because of upper body though. His legs are powerful and it takes too long to change the plates for his reps when he lifts with the wrs. So he lifts with the OL
|18 weeks 23 hours ago||I agree with that||
I tend to root for prominent Michigan players, Raiders and Packers because of Woodson, Dolphins with Henne, watching the Jags because of Denard. I don't have a favorite NFL team however, so I tend to just not root for individual players. It does make me smile though when I keep hearing Gholston referred to as a bust.
|22 weeks 20 hours ago||Umm..||
He stopped talking to everyone at a certain point. Or you had some insight that no one else had, seeing as all of the people closest to him thought he was Michigan
|22 weeks 20 hours ago||Yes...||
That's an inaccurate assumption
|22 weeks 4 days ago||That means more||
To you than it does a talented high school athlete, otherwise...by your logic, no one would choose any other school over Bama.
|22 weeks 4 days ago||Right and a||
Stand up DE in a 3-4 is essentially an OLB, meaning coverage responsibility. He's talented enough, but he's a pass rush specialist, who's never lost a 1 on 1 in a camp, even as a soph vs BCS level OL prospects. It's still a position switch.
|22 weeks 4 days ago||Important to note||
No one has talked about the defense that Alabama plays with regard to defensive ends and how that could affect Hand's recruitment.

I thought this was about Borges offensive strategy vs MSU.

Free market would probably look at how replaceable you are as well as how much revenue you generate. Michigan football generates money, not the players individually. Can you name 10 USC football players? How about Texas? If people who aren't fans don't know them, then they don't generate real revenue.
|30 weeks 18 hours ago||The flaw in this||
Is that you feel like there is a "market" value for these players. In many cases, their true market value is less than what they are getting in tuition, room, and board. What's the value of a Richard Ash? More than $85k a year? Not likely. If you base it off of jersey sales, then there are only 4 or 5 players with any value. Ask yourself this...which players have made you MORE of a Michigan fan? Who's jersey did you have to have that you wouldn't have purchased anyways? Do you check mgo more because of Devin? Do you go to more games when Jake Ryan is back? No..they have no real Value because college fans support regardless of who's on the team and who isn't.
