|2 weeks 1 day ago||Pat Hentgen||
I grew up in Fraser, same town as Pat Hentgen who would later win a Cy Young as a Blue Jay. We met in the finals of a one-on-one basketball championship for the town's rec basketball league. I was a couple inches taller than him, but he had a nasty left-handed shot that proved difficult to defend. It was a tight game throughout and I won by a point only after heaving a shot from the top of the key. Bill Freehan, Detroit Tigers catcher from the '68 Worlds Series champs handed me the trophy. That was all good until I realized later he'd given me the girls' trophy (the gold boobs were a dead giveaway).
In high school, I played intramural hoops against Allen Jefferson who was a state 100 meters champion and an all-state running back at De La Salle. He went on to Michigan and played for Bo, but a promising college career was cut short due to injury. In the intramural game, I got a very close look at his midsection as he easily elevated over my attempted block for an authoritative dunk. We lost by dozens of points.
In college, I once got called over to center court at the CCRB as a scrub fill-in for a game featuring several Michigan players: Glenn Rice, Terry Mills, and Rumeal Robinson. They were just goofing around, barely breaking a sweat while I left the court gasping shortly after. Details are a bit fuzzy now, but I'm pretty sure I did not fill the boxscore. At all. But I did get to witness a fair number of Rice's long, smoothly stroked threes and a series of alley oops most finished by Rumeal who had tremendous ups.

Read through some of your past posts. Negative much? Good thing Harbaugh was more confident than you when he led Stanford to victories over Pete Carroll and all those 5 stars at USC.

Cool event, but Dark Lord beer itself, eh, not so much. The variants are better, but honestly even those are overhyped. For example, BVDL: not nearly the beer that Vanilla Rye or FO is.
Meanwhile in Tillamook...

According to Hackett during an interview on WTKA, sounds like changes to the rules are pending having been recently agreed to by Power 5 representatives. Changes will restrict where satellite camps can be held based on the distance from organizing school's campus.
>> Listen to full Hackett interview (part about potential satellite camp changes starts around the 9:00 mark)

|18 weeks 6 days ago||Too quick to pass judgment||
Unless OP or others have full knowledge of how this exactly went down, it seems a little hasty to assume the worst. Given the wealth of prior evidence of Coach Harbaugh and the staff's ethics, I give them the benefit of the doubt.
And I do agree with others in the vein of college football is a business. It most certainly is and that means making lots of tough decisions, some that the fans may not understand or agree with. We should expect businesses to act ethically and I will continue to believe Michigan footbal program is doing so until some concrete evidence counter to that is presented.

Not sure if I'm more surprised this isn't true than if it were.

How is it that every State grad I meet claims they got into Michigan? It's often the first thing out of their mouths when I tell them I went to Michigan. I hold my tongue, but nah, you didn't.

|24 weeks 6 days ago||Communication breakdown?||
Curious how a recruit would decommit before actually talking to Michigan to discuss concerns/rumors. Something doesn't add up here, and I think there is a bit more going on. Sometimes kids just change their mind and then some reason surfaces whether real or not to explain it.
Given how final his signoff seemed, I'll be surprised if he returns to the class, but wish him luck either way. Seems like he has a great work ethic and enthusiasm for the game that would make him a great fit whatever position he plays.

Pretty quiet tonight, but last night shared quite a few good ones: SR-71, Zenne, Isabelle Proximus, Abricot du Fermier, 2015 Mexican Cake variants, and a few others.

Noticed on that site that Michigan will have faced four of the top ten rated RBs in college football this year including: Ezekiel Elliott (#1), Devontae Booker (#4), Saquon Barkley (#9), and Jordan Howard (#10).
Seeing that Barkley rated a spot higher than Howard and knowing Penn St is next up gives me pause.
