He may be a great speaker and is twisting that logic to suit his roster needs, but the message in the video is the right one. I'd rather have the kids on campus with a support system then out on their own facing a tough situation.
|1 day 9 hours ago||That's basically the reason I||
That's basically the reason I changed my stance a few years ago on kicking players off the team for run ins with the law or the university. If we really want to believe that schollarships for college athletes help to better them, we should want coaches to do everything in their power to get them to graduation. Shouldn't let them straight back on the field, but better on campus and around students then living on their own and fending for themselves at the age of 19 and often from a disadvantaged background.

But then how would anyone feel like their very super important thoughts are being heard?
|5 days 50 min ago||So a team that has an issue||
So a team that has an issue with WRs not getting seperation is going to spend a first round pick on a large WR who doesn't get great seperation?
|5 days 22 hours ago||Or it's only been the search||
Or it's only been the search committee doing the contacting and Cutcliffe told them no and Mullen and Miles say Michigan hasn't contacted them and they are both telling the truth.

Because Oakland is such a great job and the team is definitely staying in Oakland, right?
|2 weeks 3 days ago||That actually made me think||
That actually made me think of Bo who I believe liked to create arguments amongst his assistants.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||He may have wanted to try out||
He may have wanted to try out the NFL and not liked what he found, or he didn't like Brandon, or his wife won the we are staying in California argument. Doesn't mean he can't change his mind or realize the NFL isn't for him. And that doesn't mean he's definitely coming to Michigan, but him turning down the job 4 years ago doesn't mean he's an impossibility.

Sounds like even if MIchigan does hire Miles there will be a faction in the athletic department that wants him to fail and be gone. We know how that worked out last time.
|3 weeks 11 hours ago||Michigan man||
You forgot the most important criteria: He's a Michigan Man.

Sounds like you need ad block plus.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||It's dumb that he is barred||
It's dumb that he is barred from the B1G for taking a drug that provides no performance benefit. But the outright lie by his family that it was slipped to him which got his original year long suspension knocked down to 3 games kind of forced the B1G's hand in this one. And in the future if a player does get slipped something there's no way he gets any leniency. Kid is an idiot for still taking drugs while on suspension for drugs and he's especially an idiot for getting caught as an athlete.

For those worried about the freshmen, look at how Booker (a top choice to many) has played for so far for UK. About 18 mins a game and he's only 1/11 from 3 5/20 overall, and 5 ppg.

If I bet money on sports I would definitely put money against MSU tonight, no way they stay within 8 of Duke.

I thought so too, but his scoring in Italy and this game suggest otherwise.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||I tend to agree with this. I||
I tend to agree with this. I don't see either Walton or Irving making the year 2 jump like Stauskas or Burke made and they will probably both be around next season as well. Throw in sophomores Chatman, Doyle, Wilson, and Donnal plus senior Spike and you have a very talented top 6 with a lot of nice experienced players on the bench.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||There is a difference in not||
There is a difference in not caring about the consequences of behavior and being careless. I do think its funny they mentioned being careless and used the wrong "to" to modify it.

Maybe it doesn't work on mobile, it works for me.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||It's very difficult to return||
It's very difficult to return punts for TDs when you only have 10 men on the field. Plus the hype about Norfleet is more about the fact that he's one of the few players on the team who is fun to watch with the ball in is hands. And, he's probably the best gunner on the punt coverage team too.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||I don't know, do you have any||
I don't know, do you have any empathy or compasion in you? Or if no one knows who you are is it ok in your book?
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Won't change anything. I||
Won't change anything. I have pretty much always supported the players and outside of indisputable evidence I always give them the benefit of the doubt and realize they are college students(or HS students if we are talking about recruits). They put a ton of work into this sport and risk serious injury and I think they deserve all the support we can give them which includes top of the line coaching.
I have no issue being critical of Hoke and Brandon because as Hoke says "This is a big boy job" and they should be able to handle and expect criticism, it's part of the reason they make millions of dollars.
The players deserve better than Hoke/Brandon and it can be hard to see that when you are on the inside. The majority of fans here want what is best for the program/players and I know a lot of former players aren't happy either. Would be nice if some of the older former players helped inform the players as to what the fans concerns are because it's not obvious while you are still in school.

Shat's some shitty journalism by ESPN. Makes it sound like the fans wrote caustic and condescending emails to Brandon when it was the opposite.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||I really like the selfie||
I really like the selfie instead of autographs. Only worth something to the person in the picture and it probably means more than an autographed picture that anyone can get.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Buyout||
I just wonder if this would be grounds for firing without paying the buyout considering it is against the law.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||I see three reasons for it.||
I see three reasons for it. First a few years of success doesn't make up for the much longer histories of success the other teams have. Just like Michigan still out recruits MSU in football even though MSU is clearly the better team now. When people think great basketball teams, Michigan is not in the first 10 names that come to peoples minds.
Second, I don't think Beilein is the recruiter that those coaches are. He's not a salesman, he's a teacher. It's definitely atractive to certain players but his style is different from those guys.
Third is the 1 and done. He's had a lot of success lately getting kids to the NBA but I doubt that's one of the first things he mentions when talking to recruits. Many top 20 players want to get to the NBA fast and Michigan hasn't had a single player go to the NBA after 1 year so those guys aren't going to look at Michigan.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||There's a reason DJ Byrnes||
There's a reason DJ Byrnes has earned the moniker "perpetually agrieved". The dude seems to take offense at anything Michigan related and turn it into an issue. Nothing wrong with a long time executive assistant making that amount of money, as they can be worth their weight in gold if they are great at their job. Anyway, just the number of snarky emails she has to delete justifies that salary.

Maybe a couple of weeks ago the people who made the decisions weren't leaning towards getting rid of Brandon and things changed? Maybe Brandon had them conviced that things would improve and clearly they haven't.

Who is the third person with Bacon and Morris on the show?

Funny how she mentions the budget when costs are quickly catching up with revenue.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||I think things like that are||
I think things like that are in the spirit of the rivalry and aren't that bad. As long as you can take it as well as you give it and the damage is easily fixed it's kids being kids. Poisoning 100 year old trees is a completely different matter but a bit of grafitti like the M on the diag or the Spartan statue is harmless.
