CB recruiting were fine with. We just landed 2 studs last year, and probably 2 more studs this year (Juste and Thomas). It is the position we are 'most loaded' at with young players IMO, so im not really sure why your worried about that position.
DT position, however, i am definitely genuinely worried about going forward.

"I think I'll pick State in that one as they seem to play well there."
If that is your reason for picking a team, i hope you do not actually put money down on games. This game has ND kicking the shit out of MSU in every statistical category.

10 is average per game. Some of those NCAA stats are average per game, some are total. I took verbaige exactly as stated on their site. I too am not a fan of them not labeling the stats (per game vs. total).

I was looking for that - and it does not show up. I am guessing it is because the punts got through/past the line of scrimmage?
If anyone has the rule on what the criteria is for a blocked punt, i would like to know. Because they did not credit him for either of those.

Same here. I cannot for the life of me speak a well composed sentence/paragraph worth shit. Public speaking is not easy for some. Put me in a corner and give me a few numbers and i can do something.

This could mean many things. But it is odd the kid drooled over Harbaugh, yet slammed the shit out of Partridge.
It is definitely something to watch going forward. To be a fly on the wall in Partridge office.

One of the 2 you mention above, i am not very high on. One is very overrated.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I disagree with everyones||
I disagree with everyones sentiments in this thread. I believe Ferentz has done a really good job at Iowa. For the recruiting grounds, facilities and prestige Iowa carries, they really could not ask for anything more. And im willing to venture after he leaves/if they got rid of him, they would end up similar to Illinois.
I think he is a pretty damn good coach. Always thought he was a Lloyd Carr clone - still do. He would obviously do better here than what he does at Iowa, given the difference in resources. He is not elite, but is definitely an above average, solid coach.

Who the hell is UMBig11? A kid regurgitating info from various sites? Once more than 1 site post info he takes it as gospel and spreads it like malaria?
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Our safeties are extremely||
Our safeties are extremely athletic and fairly experienced. They were very highly rated recruits and are now seniors.
On some former teams, we would be talking about these safeties being the top (or one of the top) units on the team. Its just that pretty much every unit on the team this year is loaded.
I think 4's for our safeties is definitely a good ranking. This is a damn good unit.

"Clowney's freshman year saw him named second-team All-SEC after racking up 36 tackles, 12 TFLs, and 8 sacks. Joey Bosa, another five-star DE, started ten games, acquiring 44 tackles, 13.5 TFLs, and 7.5 sacks. That's the baseline."
MY BOLD PREDICTION: Gary gets 5+ sacks and 9+ TFL's ....... in the first 3 games. Yes. First 3 OOC games. The only thing that will stop him is if Charlton just happens to get their first a few more times. Gary is more explosive though. I think Gary actually will take some numbers away from Charlton - stopping Charlton from 20+ tfls and 10+ sacks.

That was pretty much the only bad info that was supplied. Other than that, fairly believable stuff.

Taco very well could be drafted before any of those on that list.
Besides Gary, im most excited to see Charlton play. This could be the best pair of ends i have ever seen at one time at Michigan.

Yeah, i would also rather have Christian Okoye than Bo Jackson

This is not only the very first college football game of the entire season, but our first opponent.
If this was, say, the 8th week of college football and we already played Hawaii, i totally agree with you. But it's not.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||One common theme is all the||
One common theme is all the coaches have some really positive things to say about this team. They seem very confident. I cannot recall the exact vibe last year, but i do not remember the coaches being this overly positive when talking about camp and pretty much every player.
I am struggling to find and extract negatives out of their responses. I get a "bryan mone came in sloppy but now is a stud' type thing, or "Rashan Gary doesnt know whats going on but hes learning and coming along well and by year end will be a stud" every now and then, but man all these coaches seem overly optimistic.
Maybe .... Just maybe this team IS as good as i believe they will be.

Have some of you people ever played football or understand it?
Bredeson looked like a high school freshmen there? Good gawd.
In this one clip, i was actually extremely impressed with Bredeson.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Wish it was in spreadsheet||
Wish it was in spreadsheet format. I would like to subtract each players ranking from 101 - then separate by teams, and add the column up - thus rank the teams by total power. Since Michigan's players are top heavy, i would think they may be #1 in the big ten in quality (IE...a top 5 player on this list would be more beneficial on a team than 3 that are in the 90 - 100 range).
|9 weeks 4 hours ago||I do kind of agree here.||
I do kind of agree here. Taking the best LB (mLB) quite possibly mades this Michigan defense one of the best in college football history. This defense is already killer, and taking away the weakness on the entire team and adding in the best player at the position in college football makes this defense one for the ages.
My 2nd pick would be a LT i believe. If mLB is not our weakest position, LT is.
Dalvin Cook and LF are tough to pass up, but replacing a glaring weakness with an NFL stud at either above 2 positions simply helps the team more IMO.
|9 weeks 5 days ago||One game is fairly tough to||
One game is fairly tough to fully judge a kid by, but it does give you a good feel of certain things. The effort does bother me a bit.
Ive seen some real good talent in my area (tri-city - Bay City/Saginaw/Midland). And out of all the kids i have seen play in high school, you would be shocked as to who the best high school player was....
NOT Jason Richardson
NOT Brian Bowen
NOT Eric Davis
NOT Draymond Green
NOT Joshua Southern
NOT Tory Jackson
NOT DarDar Tucker
The best ive seen? Eric Devendorf. He was soooooo talented. Its really too bad he was an uncoachable loose cannon. He was unbelievable in high school.
BTW, Jason Richardson was a close 2nd. And he was before my time, but if i would have seen him play in high school, Mark Macon probably would have been #1 on this list. He was a high school legend.

"NJ WR Ahmir Mitchell, another potential safety, nearly transferred."
Huh? I feel like this sentence should be removed from the above article.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||It does - i agree. But then||
It does - i agree. But then an episode later it is excellent.
My one huge beef (and it is walk-away level IMO) was when the pizza delivery guy died twice in 2 different episodes, only to show up later. Both times were next to impossible to survive. It was horrible TV and after the 2nd time, i stopped watching for 3 or 4 episodes. I did come back because there are a few other story lines i like, but 'you know who' basically dying twice and then coming out of pretty much impossible to survive situations is bad TV.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||I am an anti-series type of||
I am an anti-series type of guy. There are just soooo many series out. Most are fairly horrible. Some start good (first few episodes/maybe first season) then simply fall off a cliff.
I have started watching a hell of a lot of series, but its rare when they are good enough for me to keep watching. Im very picky.
Anyway, here are a few that have kept me interested all the way through.....
1) Game of Thrones (best series ever. Even if your not into fantasy/magical crap, this is just so well done. This series always has at least 5 story lines going at same time. You may not like 1 or 2, but the other 4 or 5 are excellent).
2) Walking Dead (not fear the walking dead. Im an anti-zombie guy, but this is way more than just picking up a gun and shooting zombies int he head. Competing vs. other humans for natural resources in an apocolyptic world)
3) Peaky Blinders (reletively underrated/unknown gem. Probably because its only on Netflix. if you like gangster movies, this is well done - only problem with it is i cannot understand some of the English as it is set in Birmingham, England)
With that said, there is one that i did watch all the way through, but do not recommend it. However, the first 2 seasons were pretty damn good. 3rd season ok. After that, walk away. Lost.

Jump on that MSU line with every cent you have. Michigan wins by double digits, most likely 15-25. Easy money.
I would stay away from the other lines.

Been saying it for months now. Before these vegas lines came out. Before these media outlets are placing us top 5.
We will CRUSH state this year. Double digit win.
Seems like people are FINALLY coming around.
