Looks like you may be right.

What has Morris done to even earn being called an okay QB? For someone whose biggest asset is his arm, any time he has tried to throw more than 10 yards down field the pass is either an interception or nearly an interception.
|15 hours 58 min ago||The rule that doesn't exist?||
The rule that doesn't exist? It isn't actually a rule, similar to the idea of not ending a sentence with a preposition.
The would of, could of, should of crap is really annoying, completely incorrect, and immediately makes me think of the writer as uneducated.
|1 day 1 hour ago||After the word "would", using||
After the word "would", using "of" makes no sense. And what I don't get about Cook being projected as a 1st round pick is the fact that he has a 58% completion percentage, which definitely won't cut it in the NFL. I don't see how he's NFL starter material, at least not for a few years which would make him at 2nd or 3rd round pick up.
|1 day 8 hours ago||Not saying it will happen,||
Not saying it will happen, but Harbaugh has shown a willingness to switch QBs midseason and if he feels they provide an equal chance to win this year, he could switch Ruddock for Gentry or Morris.

So how long until the boosters get to this guy and pay hush money?
|1 day 10 hours ago||I'm hoping the biggest||
I'm hoping the biggest improvement is the OL for Rudock. Iowa's OL was not good, if Drevno can get them to be above average the YPA should go up without any improvement from Rudock.
|1 day 11 hours ago||I don't think it will be||
I don't think it will be losing, but just look at SF where Smith was doing fine and he gets replaced by Kaepernick after going down with an injury for a game. Not saying it's going to happen, just that I wouldn't be surprised if someone overtakes Rudock during the season and starts. Unlikely for MSU, but the next few games would be a great time to get a new QB good experience. Ruddock can't be the future since he's only got a year, so if someone else is equal to him, it makes more sense to start them.
|1 day 11 hours ago||The OL at Iowa was bad,||
The OL at Iowa was bad, similar to 2013 Michigan with 2 NFL players and others not very good at all. Which makes it all the more impressive.
|1 day 12 hours ago||Could definitely see him||
Could definitely see him losing the job midyear if Harbaugh thinks Gentry or Morris is the future.
|1 day 12 hours ago||The drop in INTs from 13 to 5||
The drop in INTs from 13 to 5 is a really nice improvement. He won't be a QB picking apart defenses and winning games on his own, but he should take care of the ball, and be as good as the OL and running game allows him to be. My biggest concern on offense is the WRs without any real threats.
|2 days 13 hours ago||The Xavier Kelly recruitment||
The Xavier Kelly recruitment seems wierd. The three schools with crystal balls, Nebraska, MSU, and Oklahoma were all left off his top 8. Then since he released that list every pick has been Alabama. Is there actually news that he favors Alabama or is everyone just picking them because they are a good bet after suddenly showing up on the top 8?

That's my hope for him, a Stevie Brown type role.

Any reason her sister didn't follow her to Michigan?
|6 days 13 hours ago||Interesting, I thought MSU||
Interesting, I thought MSU and Nebraska were the major competition and they aren't on there. Unfortunately he just got a ton of people picking Alabama for him on 247 so that doesn't bode well.

Every major newspaper puts unflattering stories below the fold or buried a few pages in. And it wouldn't be the first time that this blog has bumped an unpleasant story down with pictures of Denard or something.
|1 week 13 hours ago||Because the 247 composite||
Because the 247 composite rankings basically do all that, so it's repetetive. The major feature was averaging out all the sites to find a composite ranking instead of having to look at rivals, espn, scout, and 247. Might be nice to have a simpler version that just lists the recruits brought in from around the conference, kind of a B1G recruiting roundup once a month or so.

Our alumni do have more money, they also have better things to do with their lives than slip Benjamins to 19 year olds for playing football.

He's saying we heard the same about Auburn as Michigan, not as OSU.
|1 week 3 days ago||The scary lack of speed on||
The scary lack of speed on offense makes me hope we see some of our secondary players deployed as WRs on a few plays a game.
|1 week 3 days ago||Realize that a lot of coaches||
Realize that a lot of coaches when they meet their wives are not raking in 6 figures. In their 20s, these guys are QC coaches or grad assistants. Or they are coaching at the HS level. They are lucky to be making 75k at that point. It's not until they reach the position coach at a power 5 school level that they break into 6 figures.

Isn't that the same thing Harbaugh is doing?

You can downvote to cancel out the upvote, I deserve it for the ugly formatting. It looked fine in preview then didn't work at all.

Thank you, total embed failure on my part.

|1 week 6 days ago||Sad to hear that, goes||
Sad to hear that, goes against Harbaugh's mantra of loving to teach the game of football and the idea they work to optimize practice time. Hope this was just a case of the first time running a QB camp like this and being disorganized with so many guest QBs.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||What? Most recruits are||
What? Most recruits are rated by practice anyway. A lot of recruiting rankings are based on camp performances which are glorified practices, sometimes with little bearing on actual football games. Yes, some players are better in practice than games but there is nothing to indicate that the the current commits have a higher proportion of those types than any other class.

Why not both? Though I'm liking Peters a lot too.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||That's the exact right||
That's the exact right attitude to have and the reason Harbaugh is bringing in so many QBs. Even if you have a good QB, having others to keep them competing makes them better.

Just looked up fastest sprinting speeds and the record is Usain Bolt at 27.7 mph midway through his 100m dash. So hitting 6/7ths of that from a dead standstill is impressive. (Though there's no air resistance on a treadmill)
