So typical, get help

Little Brother loses games with depleted squads and steals late in the game.

OSU sings their alma mater at the end of every home game. I think the do it on the road as well. A bit of authentic tradition amongst an ocean of sponsored bits and advertisements. If you haven't been, that stadium is consumerism at it's best. Has a real NFL/Vegas feel to it.

I hate to compare Michigan to anything done in Ohio because, obviously. But, is there any room to incorporate songs from the current songbook into the game day experience? I agree, that any addition should be organic and authentic. So, what about making 'Varsity' or 'Yellow and Blue' better known and more commonly used? Specifically, why not have the team sing 'Yellow and Blue' after every home game? New tradition? Yes, if that's really a thing, but Michigan should be around for a while and it may settle in nicely after 10-15 years.

Common Man and Company on 97.1, Columbus. Belly of the beast. Truly awful radio.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Haters||
Local radio was bagging on JH today, likened him to a super hot girl who's crazy as shit. Went on to say they thought he was "drunk" for his intro presser. I really don't remember them talking so much about M football, in February. Good sign.

They're talking about M t-shirt on 97.1 in Cbus. Pissed. Tough road for him ahead, especially the first time he fumbles.

Dude, Mike Weber has no idea what kind of snake pit he's about to walk into down here. This story has been on the local news daily since it was first reported. People (college kids, grown men, old ladies) are following this story and paying attention to this kid. He's an OSU signee wearing Michigan gear? They won't even say the name of the state down here. Unfortunately, kid's got a lot of rough days ahead of him.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Keep it Going||
The longer Urbz is in negative light, the better for Michigan recruiting in Detroit. Meanwhile, in Cbus, sports writer is advocating for Weber to be released from his LOI.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Mad||
Thomas Wilcher was just interviewed on 105.1. He's pissed at Urbz. Mike Weber and his family are pissed at Urbz. They're replaying the interview at 2. Hopefully, it goes national.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Credibility||
Gosh, I hope this story keeps growing and growing. Weber ain't coming back to MIchigan, and that's fine. But it'd be great for this story to catch on nationally, a la the stories from UCLA and Louisville, and plant that old Urban Liar seed in the minds of recruits and coaches. At a minimum, this should affect his recent momentum in Detroit and at Cass Tech.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Devil on Shoulder||
I think the Higdon excuse was just an excuse, but I think it was planted by Stan and Urbz shortly after Higdon committed. Something like "Hey Mike, didn't that rat Harbaugh tell you you were the man? You can trust us here, you're the man here, we'd never mislead you like that". Exit Stan, Weber is ANGAR.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Discovery Period||
Why not add a 10-day period after signing the LOI in which kids can "opt-out" of the contract if one of a list of specific events occur (coach leaving, etc)? This would put more pressure on coaches and teams to keep their promises and give kids an out if they don't. Maybe similar to the NBA's early entry policy? In this case, Weber sees the real situation and has an opportunity to "right the wrong". It'd be nice if coaches would just be honest with 17/18 year old kids and their families (Urbz), but that seems to be a relic at this point.

I have a bad feeling there'll be more tweets like this to come. Poor kid. If anything, this will reveal OSU's true colors to the HS coaches in Detroit, especially Cass Tech.
|3 weeks 6 hours ago||Urbz||
I think, the point is that Urban has a habit of recruting players "defensively". In other words, he latches onto kids being recruited by Michigan to prevent them from signing with Michigan. I don't know the history of these three kids, or of Chad Lindsay, or Mike Weber, specifically, whether they were recruited by OSU before Michigan noticed them. In the end, if they don't work out, it's a firm handshake, "thanks for your service", and you're injured/headed to an FCS team. Maybe this is part of why he wore out his welcome at Florida, er, developed a health issue.
Edit: This was meant to be a reply to back and forth between Magnus and Sweet Hawaiian - all 3 players were recruited by Michigan.
|3 weeks 22 hours ago||Honest Urbz||
Urban is likely freeing up a spot for Smith - firm handshake, thanks for your service, you're injured/on your way to FCS.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Dunn to YSU||
Brionte Dunn is a former 5-star, now odd man out at OSU, transferring to YSU.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Oversigning||
The Higdon excuse in complete nonsense. There's another 4-star RB in this OSU class, a much higher rated RB than Higdon. In addition, Brionte Dunn, a former 5-star RB, just transferred because he couldn't get on the field. I'm not sure how Urbz keeps selling these kids, but there are a bunch of RB's that will play ahead of Mike Weber. He was swayed by his buddy and the shiny new NC trophy. Hopefully, when Harbaugh shows he can win (???), these Detroit kids will stay home.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||B1G||
Urbz isn't even the best coach in his conference (Jerry Kill).
|6 weeks 4 hours ago||Exactly||
I thought the very same. Urbz is so bad with QB development that his third string QB led them to wins in three of their biggest games of the year. How would Bellomy have looked in those games?
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Seconded||

Should've been 8 teams...
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Ohio?||
For the record, are we completely done with the whole Ohio thing? For now? I'm going to the game tonight, need to know what to call the opponent.

Dantonio intimidated him into backing out.
|7 weeks 5 hours ago||No Surprise||
Who would want this job? Ohio State made it through the B1G undefeated and will play for NC on Monday. Despite that, I think most folks are very happy that Tom Herman is leaving for Houston. They rode his ass all season, and depending on the week, rode Luke Fickell even harder. They've only tolerated Chris Ash because he's new this year. Clearly, Urbz is a god, but anyone directly underneath him (coordinators/college coeds) will be open to great ridicule down here.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Harbaugh||
JH is a motivator, of players and coaches. He will expect a lot of coaches and hold them accountable for falling short. Regardless of who is hired, for any position, they won't coach on an island. Harbaugh was the big hire, he'll fill out his staff and Michigan will be fine. No panic needed, this time.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||Shoulder||
No one knows if Braxton will ever be able to play QB again. He's had 2 surgeries on throwing shoulder. Folks down here are already saying that if Cardale 'Ain't here to play school' Jones leads them to a NC, he should be next years starter.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||Pathetic||
This guy wants to be right, so badly. Seems like everyone else sees a trend towards Michigan. Gosh, I hope he's wrong.

Howard Brady Carter, if available.

But, is it happening?
