So they spent $200 just in postage to bombard him with letters today. Add in the cost of paper, envelopes, ink, and someome impersonating the coaches signiture plus stuffing all the envelopes and your talking about $400 for a single recruit in 1 day. Clearly something is wrong with the economics of cfb.

Now if only they had someone to teach him how to tackle instead of going for the big hit.

I've also heard his family needs the money but I don't know if there's any truth to that. OSU boosters would probably pay them well to keep Braxton around for another year.
|5 days 12 hours ago||I really like Meyer's special||
I really like Meyer's special teams philosophy. Make it exteremly competitive, put your best athletes there even if they are starters like Countess. Great special teams plays are easier to come by than great plays on defense or offense and can swing a game just as much. If you watched OSU earlier in the year, they often met the ball carier on kick offs at about the 10 yard line because their players on special teams were so fast while Michigan met them at about the 20 on kick offs to the corner. I don't know their punt block numbers but as we saw in the B1G championship game they have two of their best defensive players on the punt return unit and they can really get after the punter against a team that has pretty solid special teams.
If you have the depth that Hoke and co want, you can sustain the injuries and put someone in for the injured play who can be nearly as good.
|6 days 8 hours ago||Or other teams' coaches||
Or other teams' coaches telling recruits that they know Hoke is gone. Meyer has a history of things like that dating back to Lloyd Carr. Peppers was hearing last spring that Hoke was going to leave for the NFL, now he's been hearing that Hoke may be fired. Someone is feeding him these rumors and I don't blame him for wanting to keep his options open.

I say keep it no limit. Stupid knows no bounds so why should down voting have one?

Don't want to be in a Brazilian stadium collapse either.

Was Bo Dever really on the field for that play? I thought it was Dileo, Funchess, Gallon in the stack?

I enjoyed the Gedeon sack. Something about seeing players from Ohio making big plays against OSU has a bit of extra satisfaction. Seeing Butt and Deveon Smith play well was also nice.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||To everyone who is confused||
To everyone who is confused at people who aren't upset afer this game I ask you this: Do you feel better after this loss or after the Akron or UConn wins?
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Hoke made the right call||
Michigan's chances going to overtime against OSU, who was averaging 8 ypc and Michigan missing Gibbons, were slim. Better to go for the win. If he had made it, everyone would have called it genius. Go be a pussy somewhere else.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Great decision||
I was telling everyone with me I hope he goes for 2 if they score and was psyched when he did. Once Michigan was within 1 score under 2 minutes I just felt like we were playing with house money. Great game, never felt this good after an OSU loss.

I've heard it more than 5 times this half alone.
|3 weeks 8 hours ago||Yes, like the Jewish||
Yes, like the Jewish holidays, Easter Sunday is determined by the lunar cycle (First sunday after the first full moon after the spring equinox). So it always bounces around but is never before March 20th and always within 28 days of March 20th. It is also always the same week as Passover making it really convenient for school holidays.
|3 weeks 8 hours ago||The Jewish holidays follow||
The Jewish holidays follow the Hebrew calendar which is a lunar calendar. The Gregorian calendar and Hebrew calendar line up every 19 years because 7 times during that period they add an extra month by splitting the month of Adar into Adar 1 & Adar 2. So the holidays slip backwards then bounce forwards in the Gregorian calendar but every 19 years the holidays fall on the same gregorian date.
I happen to have been born on Yom Kippur so my 19th birthday also fell on Yom Kippur and my 38th birthday will as well.

Courtesy? If I were a coach I'd want to know how many kids are leaving so I can recruit accordingly. I'm sure many of the kids who know they are going pro let their coaches know even if the coaches don't announce it publicily. Just like Michigan is recruiting for more spots than are currently available according to the depth chart. They know their players and have good relationships with them.
|4 weeks 6 hours ago||The college and pro game are||
The college and pro game are very different in regards to the running game. Because defenders aren't quite as big or fast you can have very dominant offenses that are very running focused like the RR and Oregon spread offenses. Even a lot of their passing is short screens that rely on the receiver to make moves after the catch and are similar to a run. The hits are just too hard and defenders too fast to make it sucessful at the next level but it doesn't mean it won't work in college. Wisconsin and Stanford are also showing that a power running offense can succeed in college.

I vividly remember the word that I yelled on that play as I thought for sure it was over thrown.

I just want to say I find the teenage thug look that Farrel tries to do in every picture hilarious when he's a fat middleaged man whose job it is to talk to 17 year olds. Plus his whole godfather of recruiting thing.

Meant CBs, though as mentioned above he has layed the wood against WRs in hail mary defenses.

Would love to see Funchess knock some MSU WRs on their asses when they try to play press coverage and get handsy.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||For some reason Michigan||
For some reason Michigan seems to turn it over a lot more on their side of the 50 than the opponents and a lot seem to happen within MIchigan's 25. Over 7 games, the opponents essentially start out up 7 points.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||You're calling MSUs defense||
You're calling MSUs defense average? Take off the homer glasses, their defense is legit and is a top 10 unit nationally. Those 28 points were almost tripple what any other opponent has scored on MSU.

I also noticed that it didn't seem like Gardner started dropping back until the rest of the OL had taken it's first step and so he was late to get the ball to the RB.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||So does A & M and Mizzou||
So does A & M and Mizzou beating SEC teams mean they are good or does it mean that outside of Alabama the SEC is just like other conferences?
Would be nice if they could remove the bias from these rankings and not rank teams until week 5.

People seem to be discounting Indiana's offense because they are Indiana. But they are a good offense. They put up double the average number of points that MSU gives up, put up more on Missouri than Georgia did, and their head coach is the former OC from Oklahoma who had some pretty good offenses under him. They will continue to put up a ton of points and I can see their game in November against OSU being 1500 yards of combined offense.
