|1 week 2 days ago||Well||
this was a dong punch of a newsbreak. What the f are we, Ohio State now?
Which one looks better? I'd say the first one. That one is badass.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||When will people get it??||
It's TOO EARLY!
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Curse of Borges||
This is admittedly a really good point, but is a kid really doomed to fail just because Borges recruited him? Seems a little memeish and distanced from reality. Speight is only a RS freshman at this point and could potentially have four years of being tutored by Harbaugh rather than Borges.
How is this a knock against Speight? Lots of QBs train with a private QB coach to get better and get more exposure. And that happens in high school, college, and the NFL. Also, lots of parents who see potential in their kid pay for private lessons or put together highlight reels. I feel like your assessment of Speight is a little unfair.

|2 weeks 2 days ago||Hey, I'm 6'2"||
Sure, I think it's tall enough, but I'm not an NFL scout, and apparently people knock on 6'2" guys because it's not "prototypical" height (which is what, 6'4"? bfd). Of those four QBs you mentioned, only really two are franchise QBs in the NFL. If Malzone is the next Brees, then I say hell yeah. But what if Speight or Gentry is the next Luck?
|2 weeks 2 days ago||I just figure people haven't||
I just figure people haven't had their coffee yet.
Look, we're not talking about who the actual starter is... at least, I'm not. Obviously, in that sense, it's way too early to know. Okay, yeah, I'll grant that we haven't seen much of Malzone or Speight beyond high school highlight tape, but to be fair, we haven't seen much of Peppers beyond high school highlight tape either (he wasn't exactly Mr. Impact last season), and everyone seems to think he'll start for sure based on that.
Really, I was hoping the discussion would go this way naturally, but I guess I'll just come out and say it: Which would you rather have as the starter: a 6'2" accurate guy who has the potential to be the next Drew Brees or Tom Brady, or a 6'6" beast who looks like Harbaugh could make him into the next Andrew Luck?
I'm really torn on it. I want to give the nod to Speight since he's had the benefit of redshirting and getting through a year of physical training. I don't feel too great about throwing Malzone to the wolves as true freshman, either. But if Malzone is really Mr Accurate and he's ready to play then hell fuck yeah I want that guy as the starter.
Obviously whoever gets chosen will be OK because of Harbaugh. No one is questioning that. (At least, again, I'm not.) If anything strikes me as pointless, it's the "Whoever Harbaugh" and the "Too Early for My Brain to Even Think about this" responses. Those things don't contribute anything to the discussion other than to hurr hurr mgosnark. Excuse me for wanting to talk about football and there being barely anything to talk about.

The offenses were "handcuffed by David Brandon"? Now there's a hot take
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Hi Magnus!||
Thanks for the comment.
I think it's at least based on some information. After all, even Brian had mentioned it on a blog post recently:
|2 weeks 2 days ago||sigh||
Hoping for some actual football discussion on Monday, but I see it's going to be one of "those" threads instead. Carry on
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Too early?||
What's wrong with at least broaching the subject?
I realize the season is a long ways away, and we will probably add 10 more QBs before then. But I mean hypothetically, if it came down to Malzone or Speight, who would you choose? I think that's not a too OT topic for the Mgoboard.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||haha definitely true, thanks||
I didn't mean it as a joke, that was just my most outstanding memory of his play at QB over the past 2 years

is Morris a bust?

"I'll believe it when I see a direct quote."
You're setting yourself up for disappointment. Crystal Ball to M is 7%. The recruiting guys aren't very optimistic.

I don't want to be that guy but

Ah. So this is Grumpy Howbow's take.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||Or, to put it another way||
Don't worry, be happy
|9 weeks 2 days ago||Wait||
do you mean Kevin Sumlin going back to Purdue won't be that big of a deal?
I DON'T KNOW WHAT ANYTHING IS ANYMORE
|9 weeks 2 days ago||Well||
Mondays are clearly not the best days to post things
|9 weeks 2 days ago||HawkeyeNation||
ran something about this about a month back (LINK), though I don't think the picture is a month old. If it is, apologies!
|9 weeks 2 days ago||You clearly||
have a lot going on
|9 weeks 2 days ago||Bigger than Harbaugh?||
or not as big? Stoops has a national championship to his name. It would at least be on par with OSU hiring Urban Meyer, imo
|9 weeks 2 days ago||It's actually 2020||
but I think you're making a funny
|9 weeks 4 days ago||Kyler Murray||
Texas and Strong are going after Murray hard. He's an in-state guy who most fans want because he's the type of player Mack Brown would have passed on and then go on to win the Heisman at another Texas school. It would be a bigger deal (from a Texas perspective) for Strong to get a homegrown five-star like Murray rather than keep a pro-style four-star statue like Gentry.
Right now Gentry is Strong's consolation prize if he can't flip Murray, but if he loses both, there is going to be serious egg on his face.
|9 weeks 5 days ago||Also||
that "Blue Know It" segment is a year old. It's about Brady v. Manning in the AFC championship

Russell Wilson transferred from NC State, bro
|10 weeks 2 days ago||What an ass||
JFK said the same thing about Marilyn Monroe, but I think he meant something different.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||I really hate that attitude.||
"When else in life will he get to experience something like this?"
So that makes it okay? I really hate it when people say it's cool if a kid wants to milk the attention he's getting. Here's a thought: how about some fucking humility? Yeah, you're a highly rated football stud, but you go out and shatter your femur, muck up your knee, etc., nobody will want anything to do with you. Don't feed the beast that makes it that way.
If he's genuinely torn, that's different. If he really wants to wait and make his decision after a few weeks of careful thought, I'm cool with that. But to say it's cool for him or anyone to be a primma donna is not something I partcularly dig unless they come to Michigan and back it up in a big way. So in general I'm only cool with it after the fact, not before.
