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.

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.

Been in DC for a while and follow craft pretty closely. My impressions of DC area brewers.
There are a few bright spots worth mentioning:
- DC Brau: One of the first to brew in the District. On the Wings of Armageddon was arguably DC's first homerun craft beer. The luster has fallen off a bit due to batch inconsistency and the fact the game is always evolving whereas DC Brau may not be, instead focusing on pumping out high volume of their standard brews to an increasing distribution footprint.
- Right Proper: My favorite at the moment. They do some excellent saisons, sours but not easy to find outside of their brewpub. They are set to expand and increase distribution.
- Ocelot: Only open since April 2015, these guys have hit the ground running with some excellent hoppy beers. That's where they are excelling now, but they are starting to explore other styles, making them a brewery to watch.
The rest are kinda middling to worse:
- Three Stars: Not gonna lie, I have not been impressed with their stuff at all. Their membership society was one of the biggest scams period.
- Port City: Do a decent enough job making safe beers. Not something I seek out or recommend.
- Bluejacket: Given the start up capital and the players involved, this had the promise of finally delivering a world class brewery in DC. Well, not so much. They fired their first brewer a few months in and have never established any type of identity. Have had a handful of good beers there, but there is no consistency, and no sign they are going to fulfill their original promise.
I've left off a bunch of others, some decent, most ok. Bottom line, DC awaits its golden child brewery, one to elevate the area as a destination to seek world class beer. I will say we have some great beer bars and every year seem to get more and better beers imported from outside the area.

And I call b.s. on your assertion that their enrollment is declining at liberal arts colleges, at least the ones at or near the top of this list. They remain some of the most selective schools in the country with significantly lower acceptance rates than most schools including Michigan.
The idea that these schools would have to pay magazines for favorable rankings in order to drum up more applicants is ludicrous.

My single biggest complaint is that every piece of footage crammed into that piece was selected to fit HBO's narrative: "Jim Harbaugh is (too) competitive and wears out his welcome everywhere."
Competitive, yes, but as Gumbel pointed out in the post-story conversation, so is every other coach. Wants to win too much? Yep, like every other coach.
They mentioned that at each of his last three stops, he "wore out his welcome." Really? That certainly could be argued for the Niners job, but it is a ridiculous statement for San Diego and Stanford jobs in which case he simply left for better opportunies. That's called career advancement, not wearing out your welcome.
Even the Alex Boone footage seemed edited carefully to be provocative. I suspect there was a lot more stuff that we will never see because it didn't neatly fit into the selected and tidy narrative.
Irresponsible journalism? Maybe, but I think it's more just lazy.

I'm curious about your statement "this blog's more conservative bias." Are you talking about Brian and co. or the posters on the site? In either case, it seems like a real reach to characterize either in a place where the rules specifically forbid overtly political discussions.
IMO, it's best to avoid political discussions as it almost never ends well, and worse, you often end up learning something about someone's beliefs that negatively influence your opinion of them.

Hopslam deserves its place in history, but since its introduction there have been many significant improvements made overall in brewing and a lot of exciting, new players have entered the game.
As others have also mentioned it is essential, especially for IPAs to drink it fresh. So I would encourage you all to drink local whenever possible. Look around, there is probably more out there than you can image. If you happen to be lucky and live close to great brewers, even better.
For me I'd take most Vermont IPAs, anything by Toppling Goliath, Pipeworks, Trillium, Alpine, NEBCO, Boneyard, Societe, Russian River, Three Floyds, Surly, Maine Beer Co, and many others over Hopslam. The problem is that most of those beers don't see much distribution, so again, unless you are trading for out of market beers, find out what's locally available as a fresher beer will always be better.

This has been done on the Interwebs before where I've seen B10 programs mapped to GoT families. In that case Michigan was equated with the Lannisters.
As far as the OP's take, I agree on most with one huge exception, the Ohio State as Tywin. Any time you say superior intellect and Ohio State, you have completely lost me. If you were doing B10 coaches, I might buy Urban as Tywin, but as another poster already suggested, Little Finger is a much better fit.

Have to admit, I am surprised by this. Before Spring, I presumed Green. After, based on what I read/heard, Smith sounded like the #1.

Brian, as someone whose work revolves around watching and writing about Michigan sports, I've often wondered if you'd ever lose your passion as a fan. I've heard many members of the media talk about how it just doesn't feel the same anymore to watch games or when they are not working they have to consciously flip the switch to enjoy the experience as a fan.
However, reading this piece reminds me of what you are and why so many of us come here. You are first and foremost a fan, but you have a way at articulating what many of us are feeling even when we cannot find the words ourselves.
When I search for information about other college teams, I am reminded that most schools don't have anything remotely close to MGoBlog. Thoughtful, intelligent, often humorous (and free!!) content that so often resonates deeply on the things that matter to us most as Michigan fans.
Bravo Sir to you and the MGoBlog staff.
|1 year 45 weeks ago||Might I suggest||
I've always felt the "Hold Me" meme belonged to TomVH and another era of the blog. So instead of trying to reuse that, how about this which uses the very same language Space Coyote offered in his advice to all in this very thread. (someone with more skills could greatly improve).

They had the ball with chance to tie and couldn't get shot off before clock expired. Congrats to Wisconsin. Kaminsky is a beast, but we already knew that.
|1 year 46 weeks ago||Dakich||
Notice how Dakich always seems to sense the big play before others on the bench (example: Zone Killers, first GIF). Combine that and his willingness to ham it up, and it's no surprise he's leading many of the sideline celebrations. I'm going to attribute his spidey senses to a high basketball IQ that comes from being a coach's son.
|1 year 46 weeks ago||Trading Beer with other MGoBloggers?||
Pretty sure Brian is on the record that he hates drinking threads, but I've always thought there is a great opportunity for MGoBloggers to connect with each other to trade beers. I know there are quite a few people on here who know their beer, have reliable access to fresh locals, and would be interested in getting out of market brews.
Obviously these arrangements would need to be managed outside the blog, but wondering if enough others are interested. We could always set up a shared Google spreadsheet to track interested folks (e-mail address where you can be reached), what market you live in and any specific beers you can get, and specific beers and/or varieties they are interested in trading for, e.g.
Me: [email protected]
If you're interested, reply here and speak up if you have a better idea for how to connect outside MGB.

This beer has been around a long, long time. I remember seeing it on tap when I was a student many moons ago.

So someone starts a thread to praise Coach B and this seems like a good opportunity for you to trash Hoke? I'll assume you're a garden variety Sparty or Buckeye troll. If not, smdh.

To be mobile responsive would obviate need for a separate mobile app. One of our rival sites, Eleven Warriors, has updated their site recently. In fact, majority of websites released in the past two years are mobile responsive. One codebase to serve all devices. Use more mobile friendly video formats like MP4. Yes, please.

|1 year 50 weeks ago||Maybe I missed it, but||
Maybe I missed it, but I thought for sure there would be a GIF of the play where Levert had a wide open three, but seeing an open lane to the basket, he decided to dunk it instead. IIRC there was a huge reaction from the Michigan bench which could be seen in the background.
Obviously a great week for GIFs so perhaps inevitable some good ones don't make the cut.
|1 year 50 weeks ago||Harris as a blocker||
Harris shows signs of being a complete back including his blocking. If you watch his video, especially 2:34 to 2:50 mark, he really holds his own against much bigger guys. Very strong base, great leverage and a healthy mean streak. During that last one, there was a takedown and it looked like things got a little heated. Yes, please!
|1 year 51 weeks ago||IT'S A TRAP!||
It seems like a really bad idea to suggest fake headlines like
"Out of control Perry the ACL Elephant goes on rampage in Michigan lockerroom."
"Incoming OC Nussmeier to implement 1,200 page playbook found while cleaning out Borges' locker."
"Fred Jackson on incoming 2014 recruits: 'Meh.'"
We should not be playing with fire. No Sir. That's some bad juju.
|1 year 51 weeks ago||Another vote for True Detective||
True Detective is easily the best new show I've seen this year. First couple of episodes may feel slow, but that's because they use investigative interviews with McConaughey and Harrelson as a plot device to relate details of a prior murder investigation.The acting in those scenes, particularly McConaughey, is riveting. As others have said, things do start to pick up. The closing sequence in Episode 4, six minutes filmed in a single, unbroken shot, will have your heart racing. Episode 5 which aired this past Sunday is the best yet. Plot moves quickly with some big reveals that set the stage for the final three episodes.
Another show that I really enjoyed was the BBC Sherlock series. I binge viewed three seasons in a couple of weeks. If you haven't seen the show, each season is only three episodes; however each one is about the length of a movie ~90 mins. The first two seasons are available on Netflix and you can stream Season 3 online or via the PBS app if you have Apple TV.
Have heard great things about Banshee so that might be next.

Sam Webb's word is gold and that you trust him. So if Sam, arguably the most reputable and insider guy covering Michigan recruiting, says we have a chance why are you betting the farm that McDowell is not coming here?
If this is simply your intuition, say so. If you know something that Sam Webb does not, we are listening.

if you had Stauska pegged as the most productive recruit from the 2012 class.
Watch the Stauskas YouTube series. Listen to his father describe Nik's dedication; always studying, always practicing, always trying to improve. As Malcom Gladwell asserted in "Outliers" having innate talent is not enough. What separates the best from the rest is practice, practice, practice.
Much respect for Nik, his talent and especially his work ethic. Won't be surprised to see him succeed at the next level.

- Think about something you do well.
- Imagine people exist that rank your performance against peers say you are elite, one of the ten best at this thing.
- Job offers flood in two years before your eligible to begin work.
- One offer stands out, a company you know well with a great reputation. Someone you trust has strong ties to a head honcho there.
- You go for an on-site interview, are blown away by the experience, and accept an offer on the spot two years before your start date. You learn that another top 10 guy signed up to start on same date. Amazing!
- Immediately you start getting contacted by company shareholders telling you how great you are. Odd that strangers are contacting you, but they are saying such nice things reaffirming your decision.
- Fast forward and after a promising first quarter, the company begins to struggle. Other companies are contacting you more frequently with offers equally if not more enticing. You research those companies. Stock prices soaring, scads of top talent signing up. Looking further, one company has outperformed yours 11 out of 17 times during your lifetime including 9 of the past 10. And now the two time reigning "company of the year" is showing interest.
- You stick with your decision, but the company's performance continues to decline. Once again they are outperformed by their biggest rival. Rumors begin circulating that the CEO may be in trouble, that your advisor's connection is on the chopping block. The other elite prospect who signed up with you suddenly backs out. He's looking at other companies closer to home; one is named company of the year shortly after.
- You are confused. Shareholders from all over are telling you what to do and how you should feel. The company close to home is telling you that you are the answer. And then it happens. Your chosen company fires the guys who most strongly connected you to them. They bring in a new guy who is very respected, but you don't know him. Your friends and family recommend you look around a bit. After all there's plenty of time. Rumors start circulating that you might be on the market again. Some stockholders at your favored company suddenly aren't being nice anymore. It all feels crazy.
- You call the company and tell them you are backing out. Not completely out, but you need time to reassess your options. You have many. You have time.
Not a perfect analogy*, but put in these terms, I can better understand what this young man is going through.
* Imagine if you got a job offer and started hearing from shareholders. Guessing most wouldn't like that.
