I didn't post negative things about Jake, but definitely thought them. I'll take a hit for my thought crimes.

I think the unspoken assumption on our part is that to become RB1, you usually have to work your way up from RB2, etc. How many frosh get annointed unquestioned RB1 in fall camp?
So seeing UM give time to five RBs makes me think that as a freshman, I will get carries even if I'm not RB1 right out the gates of fall camp. Whereas at OSU, I may not get game carries unless I'm RB1 out the gate. Even if I'm a confident top flight RB, the idea that I need to beat out every other top flight RB (including upperclassmen) to get a carry is daunting.

Steele should be A+. For him to be the equivalent of Glasgow is an insult. Glasgow would feel insulted for Steele. Steele did what he wanted when he wanted (at least the way I remember it)
I'd give Ray an A-, though we're splicing at that point
Also, Renes > = Glasgow (for now--let's see what Glasgow does the rest of the season)

Really enjoy reading them. Between you and JamieMac I almost feel like I could make a few bucks each week betting.
|8 weeks 20 hours ago||I figured the article was more or less major-team clickbait||
And am now confident after it mentioned Wayne Lyons as solidifying the secondary. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad he's here, but any writer who took the time to watch half the game or look at the box score would have referenced Stribling and Clark's emergence rather than Lyons.

Not only completely not true, but the biggest advantage for college admission is based on gender, not race/ethnicity.
Males have it much easier (for non-engineering/business programs), as they typically have much lower grades in HS than females. I worked in an admissions office, and if we had made decisions solely on academic record, we would be 75% female.

Glad to see you've already worked through adversary early on. My biggest regret was quiting baseball in sixth grade because I didn't make the team after being an all-star in 5th.

I didn't read after the first page of responses, but wanted to share my take based on your reply.
There doesn't seem to be any problem with your son, per se. The teacher has incredibly high and potentially unrealistic expectations. This is something that will happen to your son again in college at some point. It is a good experience for him to navigate (with your help) and make his own choice. He can't change this teacher, and he won't get an A. He can drop, he can study his balls off for a B/C, and he can risk getting a C/D. Life sometimes puts tough choices, and it is good to think through it, process it, and make a decision.
In terms of colleges, one C, especially in 9th or 10th is no big deal. It also seems like it will be offset in the GPA by the honors, and by the fact that he'll be in line for the AP classes that up his GPA like whoa.
I hope this is helpful. Hopefully he chooses to study an hour a night for that B and learns that sometimes those in power can't be moved, even when they might do well to be.
-Former math tutor who had all As through 11th grade math and had an F going in to Christmas break in Calculus. Brought it up to a C. Good experience for me. Didn't get into my first choice university in part because of it, but transferred in after one semester.

care to comment on the reasons you consider Stritzinger's film more impressive?
|39 weeks 2 days ago||Eh||
Wilcher's language is filled with qualifiers.
I wonder if he's just downplaying it in the media (Urban reminds Wilcher of all the coaches at different schools who have worked with him), but won't be sending Urban any players from now on.
That, or Urban is even more persuasive than I thought, because I don't buy it for one second that he didn't know Drayton was on his way out.

Congratulations on calling out an 18/19-year-old Michigan fan for doing what all the professors at UM do on a daily basis: collect data and synthesize it.
What makes you so grand as to shit on a fellow fan's hobby? That cigar you're holding or the smug look on your face?
|41 weeks 5 days ago||Eh...||
Given our track record we'll get hit with this while bagmen and bagwomen run around other conferences unimpeded.
Also, NCAA will offer OSU an extra head coach to recruit while Urban coaches the team. Somehow, Harbaugh and his harbarians will beat OSU this year.
C'est la vie.
|45 weeks 3 hours ago||Pure evil?||
Man, I don't like Urban or OSU, but evil? Urban doesn't do the St. Saban Hospital Medical program, his players kept their noses cleaner than ours did this year, and I don't get the impression his recruiting is as dirty as any of the SEC programs.
He pre-empted his players getting into fights in the UM game by publicly promising suspensions for anyone who fought.
I understand he was dirty at Florida, but I wouldn't put him on the pure evil train.
|45 weeks 2 days ago||Agreed||
It sucks, but it helps us.
|45 weeks 2 days ago||Good for the conference means good for recruiting and rankings||
This doesn't just help OSU, but the rest of the Big Ten, well the Big Ten East anyway.
Recruiting: most of the best recruits want to play with/against the best. If you aren't the best this year, having the best in your league helps you recruit: "come help us become the best by beating the best"
Rankings: top 4 teams get into national playoff. Conference reputation factors for which four teams get picked. See: TCU.

Love having updates on your work with the communities, kids, and gardens.
|1 year 5 weeks ago||I'd love to see him stay as DL/DT coach||
I think he'd be great in that role. DTs have outperformed (Pipkens has been hurt), and Hoke connects with students. Also provides continuity. I don't think he'd struggle with the ego check of being bumped down.
|1 year 5 weeks ago||This is what happens||
This is what happens when someone in a position of authority ignores the will of the people for long enough that they no longer trust him to make good decisions long term even if he bends to their will in the short term.

|1 year 24 weeks ago||I don't see Smith transferring||
I just don't see it. Quiet hardworker who chose us early and made zero noise when we also got Green and had D Harris committed.
If we had known last year we'd end up with Smith, Isaac, and Green, we wouldn't have known what to do with ourselves.
You don't need a great OL and a great RB stable. Either a great OL or great RB group will do it. I'm confident our OL will be serviceable. Here's to hoping these three RBs (plus Drake Johnson and whomever else) get it done.
