These recruiting primers are well-done and all, but I miss the old icons. Especially Nefarious Eduardo.

The SEC is not going to be able to stop it. So the more the stakes get raised, the better it ends for Harbaugh and Michigan.
|21 hours 50 min ago||Defense||
I'm expecting the senior version of Gedeon to be at least equal to Bolden, as Gedeon is probably the better athlete of the two and I think Bolden had some issues with thinking too much. But maybe that is just wishful thinking, though we have seen players go from being mediocre as underclassmen to having big senior years in the past.
I like Bush and think he will be a good player--but would be a bit worried if he winds up as a starter in 2016. Freshman LBs scare me--even if they are early enrollees. I'd much rather see the lights go on for guys like McCray, Winovich, or Furbush than have to depend on a true freshman.
I am less worried about the safety position than you are. Hill and Thomas are a respectable starting pair and if Kinnel can play that's probably all we'll need. I am also thinking it would make sense for Watson to give safety a shot this spring, since he has the body for it and doesn't have much of a path to PT at corner.

I'm not a scientist. But perhaps hype is the missing ingredient that explains why the fusion experiments always fail?

I agree, I think Harbaugh has shown that he's not interested in putting guys in just to get them game reps. Did he ever even pull the starters from the Citrus Bowl? I know Rudock played the whole game, and it seemed like most of the other starters were in the whole time also. This seems kind of unorthodox, as most coaches tend to think that PT is valuable, even if it comes in garbage time. But Harbaugh seems not to agree.

Or, it could have just been an inadvertent omission.

Kareem Walker is already enrolled, so the staff should have a pretty good idea what to expect out him by the end of spring practice. Hopefully they like what they see enough to have the difficult conversation with Smith about "hybrid roles."

Don't offer him, I say. If we offer him, then we are just like any other school--he knows he can play for us any time he wants. I say don't offer him a scholarship, don't call him on the phone, act like he doesn't even exist. Let him long for that Michigan offer, let him crave it, obsess about it.
Then, maybe around signing day next year, maybe we let him know there might be an extra spot in the class if he, you know, and might be interested and isn't doing anything else that weekend.

Don't worry, Bigasshamm. I am sure your eyebrows will come in by the time you reach 3 months.

They had true freshmen at QB and RB last season. Now those guys will be sophomores, and they have a very good defense. I do agree that top-10 seems like a stretch though, but they should be comfortably inside the top-25.
|2 days 37 min ago||Announcers||
Sports announcers are like referees--if they do a good job, nobody really notices them but if they screw up, everybody does. Broadcast enough games and you'll ensure you're despised by most fanbases. Every now and then there is a Keith Jackson or Gus Johnson who everybody loves. But for the most part it seems like a thankless job.

These announcers are brutal. I wasn't going to say anything until the color guy suggested Wayne Fontes was just as bad a coach as Marty Morninwheg. That's indefensible.

I don't know. Maybe he was nervous about playing in front of 110,000 people. Maybe he was just afraid of screwing up. Maybe he wasn't even panicked--it's just what it looked like when the guy Is tripping over his own feet and displaying no patience whatsoever.

Higdon last season looked like a panicked freshman. I'd like to see what he can do as a calmer, more confident player.
|4 days 8 hours ago||Yeah, losing Cole really||
Yeah, losing Cole really makes things dicey beyond the starters. I wouldn't be surprised if Watson winds up at safety. Jeremy Clark could move back, but that would be a shame as he seems to have really found a home at boundary corner. But as you said, we really need to get Kinnel and the true freshmen ready in a hurry and they are absolutely going to have to pan out.

Although I personally support marijuana legalization, I do acknowledge that there are valid counterarguments.
|4 days 15 hours ago||Names||
At FB I might have gone with Che Foster or Sione Houma. And maybe Earnest Shazor at safety.

Should help us sign Pebbles.
|5 days 14 hours ago||LBs||
Winovich was a TE last season and has not been reported to have moved back. I think he will, but that's just speculation.

I sincerely hope you posted this from a tropical island and had to shake the sand out of your keyboard when finished.
|5 days 21 hours ago||Kemp||
That's interesting, I hadn't heard that.
Based on his profile I was thinking he might play SLB in a 4-3 Under system, kind of like Jake Ryan in 2011 and 2012. Of course, Ryan later moved to MLB and was effective there as well, so either option would make sense to me.

Listen all y'all it's subterfuge.

NT: Glasgow, Mone
3T: Hurst, Gary
SDE: Wormley, Johnson or Godin
WDE: Charlton, Marshall or Kemp
I think Dwumfour redshirts for sure, and probably Kemp.

How does it reflect poorly on Gary? He obviously turned down whatever "incentives" he may have been offered.

I went back and counted 24 board topics within the last 30 days, and 11 diaries within the last 3 months for alum96. That's some impressive dedication and hard work. Bravo.
