No, I don't give a shit about having a footprint in NY

Pitt 2008-2014: 52-39
Michigan 2008-2014: 46-42

Q. What idiot in his right mind gives a fuck about getting "a close-up view of Lions players leaving and entering the locker room?"
A: Only those weirdos hoping to see naked players inside as the players leave and enter.

I've shared your skepticism about Green from the beginning, too. I've never seen anything either in his HS highlights or in college that shows he's a real difference-maker. Hope he proves us both wrong.

Words I never expected to read on MGoBlog, but then each day can be a surprise around here.

So much for "The Team, the Team, the Team!"
|17 hours 56 min ago||No||
A billion times No.
What the hell is wrong with you people? A bunch of giddy middle school girls squealing about that dreamy new teacher wouldn't be any more embarrassing.

will soon be a mundane parking lot.

You're comparing being a fan of Michigan to being a fan of the Detroit Lions?
|3 days 8 hours ago||The hyperbole and panic in this thread is incredible.||
It's no more "incredible" than the ridiculous, sycophantic HARBAUGH!!! HARBAUGH!!! HARBAUGH!!! idolatry that's characterized this place since he was hired. They're just opposite extremes, and entirely predictable on the internet.
|3 days 11 hours ago||Harbaugh is a jalapeno pepper.||
Huh.... I've always thought of JH as a smoked chipotle myself.
More seriously and FWIW, Sam Webb has been saying for a while that Harbaugh and staff are having to play catch-up because as a staff they don't have nearly as many recent established relationships either with players or HS coaches.
On top of that, many of those relationships that do exist are either with players/coaches in the far west or the deep south, and getting more than a handful of those kids to Michigan is difficult even in the best of times.
While there are some general similarities between Harbaugh and Bo, one huge difference is exactly what they came with to Michigan in terms of recruiting advantages. Bo had spent virtually his entire career coaching in the football hotbed of Ohio, and it was entirely natural that he would recruit that state like gangbusters, along with the staff he brought with him. He also had the initial advantage of no scholarship limits to constrain him, and it wasn't hard at all to persuade an Ohio kid to make the 2-3 hour drive up north.
Harbaugh, by contrast, has spend his entire head coaching career in California, with the last several years in the NFL. His own existing HS contacts would be almost entirely out west, and he's got scholarship limits that Bo didn't have to deal with.

If this is actually true, then Harbaugh and his staff are making an inexplicably short-sighted mistake.
|3 days 17 hours ago||It is super important that Brian Cole and Mo Ways eventually pan||
Don't forget how awesome Freddy Canteen looked in shorts in a padless footwork drill.
|4 days 11 hours ago||Two chicks at the same time?||
I'll be grilling two chickens at the same time... does that count?
|4 days 13 hours ago||If players showing off their muscles meant a goddamn thing||
Michigan football would have gone 11-1 last year, won the BIG championship, and been one of the four teams playing for the NC.
|5 days 7 hours ago||Another talented kid uses Red to burnish his resumé||
with the goal of signing a pro contract as soon as possible. Michigan has basically become a 1-2 yr farm system for the pros. The notion of getting an education is just as ridiculous a lip-service pretense as in basketball.
|5 days 10 hours ago||If he had stayed healthy and stayed at Michigan||
Henson would very likely have been the #1 pick in the NFL draft, and certainly would have been in the top five. The contract he could have signed would have made the one he did sign with the Yankees look piddling by comparison. Michael Vick was the #1 pick in 2001, and his first contract with the Falcons was $62 million over six years.
|5 days 12 hours ago||If Nike doesn't offer any more than $5 mil/yr||
then we're staying with Adidas.
I don't really give a shit from a personal apparel standpoint because I buy virtually no UM gear. The only stuff I've bought in the last few years are Champion sweatshirts from Moe's, which are great.
My only issue is that Michigan retains the right for final decisions on all apparel, and that we have head coaches and most importantly an AD with the brains to put the kibosh on bumblebee jerseys, illegible numbers, cumberbund/my-pants-are-falling-down shorts and other clowniform idiocies. There is NO intrinsic, groundswell, grass-roots demand for alternate uniforms. All of it has been done with the sole goal of goosing apparel sales.
You know what will supercharge apparel sales? A winning football team that beats MSU and OSU.

This ridiculous, scattershot, can't-make-up-our-fucking-minds dilution of Army's identity shows that Nike can be as stupid as Adidas can be.
|6 days 3 hours ago||insiders who spent years blowing smoke about Babcock to UM||
they're all spooning with Adam Schefter now and sucking their thumbs.
|6 days 4 hours ago||Never got the hate Babcock got in Detroit.||
It was the inevitable result of getting hired with Red Wings's fans still having fond memories of Bowman. I think it's a smart move for Babcock aside from the money.
|6 days 4 hours ago||Unfortunately I chose a career where my UM degree||
isn't considered remotely prestigious by the elite in the field. Sorry, Jay.
|6 days 4 hours ago||Most linguists wouldn't care that much.||
OK Dr. Linguist, you tell me exactly what "stuntin" means.
|6 days 9 hours ago||I went from working imigrant parents to stuntin in my middle||
Not sure this is showing the power of a Michigan degree.
|6 days 9 hours ago||But you're just asking to be fired taking $60M from Toronto.||
I think going to Toronto has some upside for Babcock. Unfairly or not, he'll never be the coaching hero in Detroit that Bowman is. Toronto has gone the longest of all the Original Six without a Cup appearance, and If Babcock even made the Leafs competitive on a yearly basis he'd be coronated as a savior in Toronto.
|6 days 12 hours ago||JH is as entitled to his opinion as any other person is||
but he wasn't forced to tweet his views on the movie or Kyle—he chose to do it. In doing so, he guaranteed he was going to be drawn into a controversy that has nothing whatsoever to do with Michigan football, or the athletic department in general.
Harbaugh's carefully-cultivated identity as a badass "I don't give a shit what anybody thinks I'm going to say what I want" kind of guy appeals to most Michigan fans. However, if he doesn't understand that his position as head football coach at a major public educational institution means that offhand statements and tweets are going to get a level of scrutiny that wasn't the case in S.F., he's going to be constantly making news in ways that having nothing to do with his job responsibilities.
|6 days 13 hours ago||That march has to have words. I must learn them.||
My earliest Tigers radio memories—I'm talking early 1960s—include that march and I don't recall ever hearing any words or even the title. I think it would take some industrious digging and maybe direct contact with either WJR or the Tigers club to find out that info.
|6 days 22 hours ago||If we go 7-5||
people will be snapping femurs and shattering ankles jumping off the Harbaugh bandwagon and knuckleheads will be muttering under their breath that we should have kept Hoke.
|6 days 22 hours ago||7-5 basically screams, "our offense will be Shitty".||
No, it screams, "Our offense will be shitty, and our defense won't be much better."
