Hit the high mark on this thread for MGoSpeculation ranging from a) giving he kid a medical after one year all the way to b) not honoring his scholarship and back to the ethical debate of those situations. Amazing.
Maybe awaiting clarification would be cool.
Also, get well soon Matt Falcon.

Oh yeah, I remember that guy. Coached at Temple under Addazio before joining Urban Meyer staff at tOSU.
IIRC isn't he the seemingly insecure Receiver Coach Savant that got into it with Jedd Fisch on Twitter?
Seemed like a tool.

Not this narrative again. This is the type of thinking that led Brady Hoke to apologize because a spike got planted on the field at MSU. Its tiring. Jim Harbaugh not going that way. Bottom line, until Sparty wins the next 35 in a row then I, as a Michigan supporter, will continue to talk all day, all the time as indicated.
As to these ongoing Sparty threads. Dammit OP. When does the season begin, anyway? I said it last week and I'll say it again...

i'm standing on the UP just now. in all my years of quite regularly being in this area for summer I rarely encounter Sparties and never Wisconsin fans. Go to any sporting goods store its mostly M.

Anyone who would (sincerely and not /s) complain about accessibility improvements because they reduce able bodied capacity is a jackass.
Bottom line is that we are all going to get older and most disabled in some form or another. As one who has attended multiple events with disabled colleagues (basically enabling them to now enjoy Michigan Stadium when before they could not) these improvements make a ton of sense.
Dignity is worth 2000 seats.

Srsly. When does the season start.

National Championship coach. B1G titles. Graduated his players.

Brass balls on a middling prospect (despite the past frothing of the Sparties). Why don't you just continue parroting the RCMB party line of "we can do better" and "we're elite in recruiting now" etc. etc.
Call me when he runs off a player with ranking.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Not buying...you mean the "Darrell Hazell Seal of Approval"?||
Srsly? WTF has Darrell Hazell accomplished in his career that leads me to believe that his offer would somehow validate a Michigan offer made by Jim Harbaugh after an evaluation camp combine and film evaluation by this staff?
Nonetheless, let's take a couple easy examples of your theory and look at offer validation (though I don't think it necessary):
Victor Viramontes (3 starz) Quarterback/Athlete. Probably does not play Quarterback at Michigan.
Offers of Note: Wiscy, Nebraska, Ga. Tech
I don't see the issue here if Harbaugh has a) seen his film and b) run him through a combine environment. This is how the NFL does it.
Or another, more difficult one:
Kingston Davis (3 starz) Running Back.
Offers of Note: Florida, Louisville, Miss State, Nebraska, Ole Miss Bag Men
Harbaugh was in on Davis early and we see the outcomes.
It is possible the guy knows what he's doing...
|5 weeks 1 day ago||IDK...||
What other coach ran a combine (I mean er...Summer Swarm Tour) over multiple sites nationally to identify this talent? The is the way it's done in the NFL (in-person evaluations combined with film analysis) and how players from smaller schools like D2/D3, Canada etc. are often found.
Harbaugh has changed the narrative on recruiting, somwehat, with this combine system (I mean Summer Swarm Tour) and going forward it will be interesting to see a) the impact off this on the services who might have to work a bit more and b) the impact of this on other coaches/programs and how long it takes other schools to implement something similar. That said, Drevno could be right and maybe not all coaches have Harbaugh's ability to project talent.
FWIW, I also think the earlier poster crabbing on about STARZ and rankings and 12 players nobody wanted is ridiculously off base. Athletes like Vic Viramontes, for example, with Ga Tech, Nebraska and Wiscy offers aren't exactly nobodies...
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Jeebus.||
I was going to go all TL/DR on your 17 paragaph missives but you apparently have missed the 7 year war around here on STARZ, stats and relative merit.
Here's the thing. Starz are complied by recruiting service analysts who get paid to identify talent but mostly to sell their services. Similarly, Jim Harbaugh and his staff are paid to identify talent but not so much to sell you a service but, rather, to win games and ultimately keep their jobs. As a supporter of the program you can choose to buy the services analysis of players or you can choose to buy Harbaugh's analysis of players. They are quite exclusive.
Your read on stats re: starz and related analysis is certainly simplistic. At the bottom line, however, you basically are going to trust Harbaugh (Superbowl coach, NFL talent evaluator, combine...I mean summer swarm camp...facilitator) to identify talent or you are not.
Clearly you don't and put far more faith in Allan Trieu et al.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Heh...||
I had always thought you were the old guy next to that Big Nut guy.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Agree with your sentiment.||
It pains me, as Mick is among my favorite posters, but negged for stud use:
|6 weeks 6 days ago||IDK...||
I just want the best players. Full stop. Doesn't matter where they are from...
Moar satellite combines (I mean camps, of course)
|6 weeks 6 days ago||well...||
I guess we can agree on something after all.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Upvoted. @RationalBuckeye||
I find your analysis typically rational, indeed. However, I can never square your name with my personal experience in meeting and/or general knowledge of Ohio State fans...
or this idiot
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Who's got it better than us?||
Harbaugh can recruit.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||I'd have preferred...||
That he ask him to quit drinking first.

Bruh. OP compared Peters' performance in light of Deweaver's apparent failings at today's Elite 11. Unnecessary Sparty like analysis.
