If Gary doesn't set the single-season Michigan record for sacks and TFLs there will be asshats on MGoBlog calling him "overrated."

My first year at UM was 1971, and people were riled up about Orr even then. It wasn't too long after that that anti-Orr fans were standing on State St. and along Hoover with big "Dump Johnny Orr" signs during the pre- and post-game trek to and from Crisler.

One man's "wasted space" is another man's valuable content. Last time I looked, pixels are free.

I'm not really knowledgeable about BB beyond a surface level and I'd guess that those who are could poke large holes in my statement, but the parallels seem to be there to my unsophisticated eyes.
Part of my frustration is that when I was in school during the '70s, those Michigan teams with Grote, Staton, Britt, Baxter, Hubbard, and even Ricky Green played hellacious, in-your-face defense all game long. There was no such thing as opposing shooters getting uncontested open looks all day. I know it's a different era and every coach has his own system, but it's a rare team that gets very far in the post-season if it can't play fundamentally strong defense, and the few teams that do generally have lights-out offenses. We're far from that.
|1 day 16 hours ago||Michigan BB the last two years reminds me of football under RR||
Focus almost entirely on offensive part of the game utilizing soft finesse players; defense appearing to be a complete afterthought; inexplicable coaching decisions in-game regarding personnel, strategy, use of TOs, etc; team is competitive against mid-level-to-bad opponents, but completely outmatched in talent and even some intangibles when playing good teams.

I want to hear the inside stories, the dirt, the laughable instances of drunken debauchery in Super 8s in Topeka with hookers with names like donuts. Names need to be named, and photos provided.
|4 days 12 hours ago||the way that old Schembechler Hall didn't look cool after 1994||
I thought the original Schembechler Hall was a pig-ugly monstrosity the day it opened. Its architect Gunnar Birkerts designed some very notable buildings in his career, but that weird thing on State St. was an embarrassment.

The performance started with them being lowered to the stage inside cylindrical, sci-fi-like capsules. Pretty over the top entrance, but it was an entertaining show anyhow.
The November 9, 1977 issue of the Daily has a review of the concert (scroll right to the third page:

|6 days 8 hours ago||The site has been essentially non-functional all day for me||
It's only been during the last 15 minutes that I've managed to get on without getting kicked off into another 502. I've gotten some 521s too, whatever those mean.
Problems the same on laptop and mobile.
|6 days 8 hours ago||And when I hit the "save" button on my previous comment||
I got kicked into another 502. I'm surprised to see the comment posted.
|6 days 8 hours ago||If it's points #2 and #3||
why would we have even contacted him again, let alone extend a provisional offer? And if he was a "silent commit" was it strictly one-way? Was it a conditional offer, based on whether we'd have space? None of this makes sense to me on the surface, but I suppose there's a back story that explains things.
Regardless, we didn't need another QB, and converting him to a full-time safety or LB would be an experiment. I'm disappointed he didn't sign with AZ, but that's recruiting. He'll get a good degree at Cal.
|6 days 9 hours ago||??? Site has been non-functional all day for till now for me||
This is the first I've been able to get on and stay on all day, whether laptop or mobile. All I've gotten is constant 502s with occasional access that then drops off to another 502. I must have tried 30 times and gotten through maybe 5. I eventually gave up and visited Scout, TTB, and M&B for updates.
The lack of access meant I got a lot more actual work done, though.

I'm no expert, but I'm pretty sure playing good defense has always been necessary to win championships in basketball.

If that's his goal, Rashan's mother is certainly cooperating since much of Sam's reasoning is a result of comments she made just a couple of days ago.
Trying to get concrete information about where a recruit is headed from random tweets and comments to recruiting analysts by parents is just slightly more reliable than looking at tea leaves and goat entrails for hints about the weather.
Regardless, all the drama will be done one way or another by this time tomorrow.
|1 week 6 hours ago||This is obviously feaux drama to drive anticipation for tomorrow||
FWIW, that wasn't Sam Webb's take on things this morning by a long shot. He's been saying for at least a couple of weeks that Clemson would be the most serious competition, and he said the notion that Gary was a lock to UM was very mistaken. I'm not a member over at Scout so I don't what Webb might have said later in the day today, though.
The fact that CBs are now coming in for Gary isn't reassuring. I've seen recruitments go south at the last minute for us too many times over the past 20 years to take anything for granted.
One thing this has done is deepen my skepticism about the whole "academics are very important to me" routine. When they hear those words, Michigan football fans automatically assume that Michigan is the sure destination, since it's rarely the case that we're going up against Stanford or some other school with equivalent academic reputation. The problem is that those words may well mean something very different to the recruit and his family.

Relax... it was just one of Crystal's Ballz to Clemson, and by a Domer at that. Nothing to see here, move along....
|1 week 7 hours ago||but because we're going to be in crisis mode with access issues||
If the Big Two choose Michigan, "access issues" will seem a passing inconvenience.
If Onwenu and Gary go elsewhere, "crisis mode" won't begin to describe the mayhem that will occur here.

If Thomas Wilcher had the power to "allow" or "disallow" recruiting decisions his players made, Mike Weber would be in Ann Arbor.
