Michigan recruited him pretty hard during OSU's Fickell year.
|3 hours 51 min ago||No matter how small a class||
No matter how small a class size gets, M can pretty much always count on having enough spots for the elite talent it is recruiting in any given year. That's why I generally think it's a bad idea to bank scholarships. The spots you'd be banking would go to role-player types, and with role-players you want them to have as much experience as possible. I did a diary on this issue a couple years ago: http://mgoblog.com/diaries/ipcs-and-football-scholarships

I sat there. Five minutes. Then, twenty-two minutes by the kitchen clock. Not a word, not a motion. What am I thinking? "My arm's getting tired?" No. I did it. I did it. Like in the old days, Ricky. Like I was taught... Like, I used to do...I did it. I locked on him. All on him, nothing on me. All my thoughts are on him. I'm holding the last thought that I spoke: "Now is the time."

Bob Toledo had a couple great seasons in the late '90s at UCLA. It was uncanny how quickly they rose and fell. 5-6 in 1996, then two straight 10-2 seasons (finishing #5 and #8 nationally), and then back to 4-7 in 1999.

I think in the real conversation, the thing that couldn't be beaten was high-end deli sandwiches.

Really? Imagine being a HS quarterback and having to go up against that defense. Run the ball, I guess, up the middle.
|21 hours 10 min ago||QBs||
I'm not entirely sure it's accurate to say Gentry was "hand-picked" by Harbaugh. Gentry looks like a gifted player and was certainly the best QB available in the limited time Harbaugh had to work with, but we won't ever know which QB Harbaugh would have targeted as his #1 choice in 2015 had he been here for the entire recruiting cycle.
Similarly, we can't rule out the possibility that Harbaugh would have pursued Morris, had Harbaugh still been coaching in the NCAA during Morris' year. Morris ticks off a lot of the same boxes that Gentry does: tall, big arm, decent speed. And Morris is still a pretty young player; the light bulb could still come on.

#98 should be reseved for a two-way player who also kicks and is on the basketball team.
|21 hours 31 min ago||Seriously||
What was it Bo supposedly said in that Rob Lytle piece from the other day? "We've already got six running backs and if you come you'll be number seven?" I don't see Bo giving out special lockers to anybody.

Ha, that's pretty funny.
I understand where the OP is coming from and I'm not trying to ruin anybody's fun. It's just that when I try to think of candidates for a "best male life" or something like that, I come up with names like Nelson Mandela (RIP) or John Paul Stevens--people who have done things of great significance for which they will be long remembered.
Tom Brady is a fucking boss though, I must admit.

Darn. I guess I'm not as exciting as "US Weekly for Dudes" or whatever it is that keeps you up.
|1 day 1 hour ago||Hoke||
Well played. Though, in my defense, Hoke is actually doing pretty well by the original criteria.
|1 day 1 hour ago||Criteria||
Your criteria are ridiculous. A humble person who leads a moral life and sacrifices wealth and fame for the benefit of others is far more desrerving of admiration than someone who, in your words, has "access to everything he wants with none of the responsibility."
That's may opinion, anyway.

Pickard is a guy I am really hoping for. He seems like a hard worker who will really take the coaching, and has enough talent for that to matter.
|2 days 1 hour ago||I think the early enrollment||
I think the early enrollment gives Cole a good chance to play in 2015. With Funchess gone, M will really need a playmaker at WR and the two most likely candidates seem to be Cole or Drake Harris. If Cole was enrolling in the fall, I would not expect him to play at all because Saginaw Heritage is not the kind of high school that's going to produce a plug & play freshman. But with a full spring practice and off-season conditioning program, Cole will have a great shot.

I had started doing my own list and scrapped it when I couldn't pick a 2010s artist. But I also had Chuck Berry, VU, and Parliament for 50s through 70s.

That's hilarious. My wife loves Weezer, but I cringe every time she puts them on. They do have a couple songs I like though.
|2 days 3 hours ago||I turned 18 and started||
I turned 18 and started college in 1993. And for me, with all due respect to the grunge bands and the terrific rappers of that era, there is one '90s band that stands above. I would not be the person I am today, had I not been deeply influenced by the passionate, angry vocals of one Zach de la Rocha. I understand that others will disagree, but Rage Against the Machine, yo.

On popularity, there is no doubt. But it's a closer call if you look at influence. Still, both were incredible bands.
|2 days 3 hours ago||I think what happened in the||
I think what happened in the 2000s is that you had the rise of iTunes and other digital download services, and so people really stopped listening to the radio (except Pandora) or even buying music at stores. In response, "mainstream" music really became "music that appeals to people who don't just download what they like." But there really has been an explosion of GREAT music since the mid-2000s, you just have to know what to look for.

FauxMichBro, I see that you've only been here for a couple weeks, so there is something I think you ought to know: these "hello" threads are really meant to celebrate a new commit and to congratulate the player. If you aren't impressed with his film, that's fine--but save it for later. The hello thread is not really the best time or place.

I think Clark is a bigger deal than Marshall. They are both great prospects but we have a bigger need at TE than CB right now.
