The cops in Ohio DEFINITELY took the opportunity to set those bags up perfectly on top of the Michigan gear. There is no way Jerald would be rollin that dirty with bags of weed just carelessly tossed in the back seat like that. Obviously what Jerald did was very wrong but the Ohio cops knew exactly what they were doing putting it on display like that to reflect poorly on Michigan.

They know that I have nothing to do with the university, I make sure to tell them that up front.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||I admit||
I admit that saying that back in July of last year was very ill-advised which is why I personally spoke with Demetrius later that day to apologize. That was a couple of months after I started the blog and didn't take it very seriously. I have since been very aware when it comes to stuff like that. As for the Berger comment, I was told by a personal acquaintance of his that the stuff at OSU was rubbing him the wrong way so I asked him about it. I sincerely don't try to do anything negative and understand that if thousands of people read what I write some people will take it that way. Comes with the territory. The thing with Knox, WAS classless and unprofessional and since I've started taking my site very seriously I have done nothing close to that. Bravo to whoever looked through thousands of my tweets to find legitimate information though. I actually respect you making a point like that.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||I appreciate the constructive criticism||
I guess I just don't see it in my own writing. I always try to include info about other schools if its relevant. I usually include what I think will happen with a recruit whether it's pro-Michigan or not. It just so happens that I usually report about players that are most popular among Michigan circuits. Nobody wants to hear about/from a kid who has no interest in Michigan. Of course I am a fan, but I don't rah-rah about stuff on my site and I don't even pump up Michigan when I talk to recruits. I guess without any actual examples of what you say I do, I'm just blind to it. I'm more than willing to adjust for the better but I'm honestly not sure what adjustments are needed.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||Ok||
Not sure who that is but he might be. Like I just said I do coach but nothing major.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||Visitor Reactions||
I just posted reactions from the other visitors if anyone is interested. Every time I post something I seem to get blasted but some people may actually want to read it, haha. www.themblock.com
|9 weeks 3 days ago||Yeah||
I coach high school basketball and football. Not trying to promote myself as a coach necessarily, but I originally created my Facebook and twitter account as a way for my players and students to get in touch with me...just kinda stuck.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||Check it out|
|9 weeks 3 days ago||Earlier today||
I talked with his coach as soon as they hit the road to leave Ann Arbor.
|10 weeks 12 hours ago||Kalis||
I talked to Kalis and he said that RG is his more natural position because of his stance. When he gets into his stance it is natural for him to put his left leg forward making him more confident on the right side. I thought him and Lewan on the left would be real solid but also maybe putting him on the right balances the line a little bit.
|10 weeks 12 hours ago||Wilton||
I just texted Wilton and he will not be in Ann Arbor this weekend.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||What did I do to you?||
|10 weeks 2 days ago||Why?||
I'm not sure why I strike you or anybody that way. I obtain good info from recruits. I do have insider information and I get texts from recruits all the time. Wilton Speight had to change his phone number because of all the attention he was getting and he immediately let me know of his new number. Drake and I texted back and forth today for a while after his decommitment. The Ferns family sent me a Project 135 shirt. I have a good rapport with people and I do it the right way. I seriously do not get the negative responses I get. I communicate regularly with Ace, he has cited me several times, and Brian put my site on the sidebar. What else do I have to do? Haha, I sure am trying!
|10 weeks 2 days ago||Drake said||
He told me that he doesn't have a leader but after 3 weekends in a row in AA and then a decommitment from Sparty, I'd feel pretty good if I was the Michigan coaching staff.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Come on man...||
I have nothing to do with what other people say. If that is what bugs you then you are really grasping at straws.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||
I ask prospects to follow me after I follow them so we can communicate. That is what Twitter is for. Also, to my knowledge, I have never asked a recruit to DM me. I ask them to follow, if they choose to oblige, I message them once it happens. I can't understand why using Twitter exactly the way it was designed to use is a turn off for some.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Wow....||
I had no idea this discussion was going on. Did I miss something?? haha, I'm just trying to get info directly from the prospects and put it out there for people to see. I can't understand why people are getting so bent over it. Strange to me.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||Why?||
Why do people get huffy? Who gets huffy? Why are we using the word huffy? Haha. I'm trying to do stuff the right way and for some reason people are getting rubbed the wrong way and I'm not sure why. Oh well.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||No.||
Haha, it's a practice jersey.
|15 weeks 17 hours ago||Pretty eventless day for||
Pretty eventless day for Michigan, but that's probably ok and still will finish somewhere near the Top 5.
|15 weeks 1 day ago||I didn't post this, haha||
MJ said he would post some stuff from my site from time to time, but I didn't post this. I appreciate him though...
|15 weeks 2 days ago||It's all good.||
I have gotten this response before, it really doesn't bother me. Twitter was created to connect as many people as possible in realtime. The entire point of social media is to spread the word, connect people together, and find others who share your interest, at least that's what I use it for. I ask for recruits to follow back so I can communicate with them and let them know that I have written something about them or need to get information directly from them instead of someone else. If that bothers you I apologize but I really don't see how it possibly could.
|15 weeks 2 days ago||I am...||
I don't mind, I am a teacher and I coach basketball and football as well. I was offered a "film breakdown" position on mgorecruit.com back with Benji if any of you are familiar and just about three days later he decided to shut it down. I decided to branch off on my own and www.themblock.com was born. I really enjoy doing it to stay connected to Michigan football because I moved to South Carolina 5 years ago.
About the 3 QB's, I think if all three were offered at the same time, Speight would be the first to commit. Cornwell has straight up told me he would NOT commit on the spot. O'Connor said he still likes a few other schools and would have to take his time, and Speight said "No comment" and that he'd have to discuss the offer with his parents and his coach. Just from speaking with all 3 of them I get a gut feeling Speight would be the first to commit.
|15 weeks 2 days ago||My site, www.themblock.com||
I have a Michigan football/recruiting site, www.themblock.com that I have been running for almost a year now and have built a pretty good rapport with hundreds of recruits. Speight and Cornwell text me pretty often to update me on what's going on. I've talked with O'Connor but he isn't as forthcoming with his info, I have to seek it out with him.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||The 3 QB's||
I have talked with all 3 kids (Cornwell, Speight, O'Connor) and they all are waiting for a phone call on Wednesday. At first the coaches wanted one of them to commit on the spot if offered but Speight told me that they have pulled back from that desire.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||Crab Legs!||
That's a pretty baller super bowl snack.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||DIP||
My fiancée made some pretty awesome chicken wing dip.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||#1 Seed||
Is Michigan going to receive a #1 seed for the tourney?
|24 weeks 1 day ago||Chance Stewart and Conor Sheehy||
Michigan may benefit with both of these guys. I talked with both of them tonight.

I just talked with Colin and he seems to be 100% sold on Notre Dame.
