Seeing Furman drafted and Rawls signing as an UDFA, does any other team have as many players who transfer out due to lack of playing time/production and end up in the NFL as Michigan?
Edit: And congrats to Gardner on signing with the Patriots, hope they can be patient with him like they were with Edelman and he can become a productive WR.

Way too much time between picks filled with commentary I don't care about so I'll do other stuff and check in ever 30 minutes or so.

I'm sorry, but starting off a post by qualifying Brown as "one of the worst safeties in Michigan's History" is uncalled for. Everyone remembers Brown and his struggles, no need to lead off a post about good news for himthat way.

Only the actual NFL revenue, not the individual teams, and most of what the NFL brings in is distributed back to the teams.

Completely a PR move, that does't hurt the NFL's income. When in the last decade has the NFL ever done anything that reduces revenue or given up a profit source?

Speaking of Stubhub, does anyone know the best time to buy individual tickets on stubhub? I know prices will be higher this year than in years past, but supply seems pretty low right now. Will There be a lot more tickets posted when season tickets go out?

Wonder if Harbaugh could convince Tom Brady to come give a short QB clinic for a day.

They can probably claim it counts as breaking the rule already in place about not participating in camps more than 50 miles away.
|1 week 1 day ago||I don't disagree with your||
I don't disagree with your last point, OSU was a team that peaked at the right time, with young players who improved and gelled as the season wore on and it wasn't until the last few games that everythig came together. Before then they were certainly beatable.
|1 week 1 day ago||It wasn't that the coaches||
It wasn't that the coaches couldn't figure out the defense, it was they hadn't prepped for it at all and it messed with the QBs reads. Only so much you can do at half time with a QB in his 2nd game. Later in the season, when the OL was better and the QB more experienced, they would have had more options to adjust to, especially in the running game, and a QB more comfortable with the offense.

I believe another team tried the same things the next week and had 0 success. VT was successful because they were going against a RS freshman QB who was starting his 2nd game and hadn't practiced for what he saw.

Maybe it's just the fact that he's another 6'10" unheralded white guy, but he reminds me of Doyle when he committed. Hopefully he can redshirt or only be needed for 5-10 minutes a game as a freshman behind Doyle, will be nice to have depth and upper classmen experience at the 5 again. Plus, that 7'2" wingspan is nice.

One of the few NCAA loopholes that actually benefits the kids and they want to remove it because of a quality of life improvement for the guys making hundreds of thousands a year.

Ever since 247 came out with their composite rankings, I don't even look at the other recruiting site rankings.

You can be such a buzzkill Magnus, but I do enjoy your scouting reports. Interesting that Drevno is going after a kid who is on the overrated side, but he must think he can fix the technique issues.
|1 week 5 days ago||Over the last 4 years,||
Over the last 4 years, Michigan has shown they can win with freshmen and sophomore guards, but as this past season has shown, the same isn't true for centers(McGary is an exception but he's an elite talent). The big guys need more time to develop, grow into their bodies, and learn to play down low against the rest of the B1G.
So Beilein has made it a point to not repeat what happened this season where he had too few good options at center. I would think more people would be happy about no true freshmen starting centers.

It's connected because it's an example of the anti muslim discrimnation on campus that the person who speaks out against the movie mentioned, and she was the one who perpetrated it.

Maybe there's a balance somewhere in the middle? Maybe men feel like they are under attack when someone claiming they raped them can destroy their lives even if there is no evidence because colleges use "preponderance of evidence" and don't allow any defence by accused students?
Rape is a serious issue that needs to be adressed(on and off campus, though it's far worse in poor and minority communities than on campus), but exagerating it and labeling anyone who calls you on those exagerations a mysoginist or pro-rape is not conductive at all.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||What's sad is while rape on||
What's sad is while rape on campus is certainly an issue, it's actually higher off of campuses. Women of the same age and socioeconomic bracket who aren't in college are more likely to be raped but no one is speaking up for them. And minority and poor women are at an even greater risk of rape but don't get the attention they deserve.

What about Elmer and Reshke in 2013,Bullough in 14, and Thompson in 15. In no way has Michigan dominated recruiting the state of Michigan in recent years.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Actually only 2 of the last 4||
Actually only 2 of the last 4 years. And Michigan generally offers everyone in the top 5. People need to realize, Michigan has not gotten more than 50% of the in state kids they want, except for 2012 & 2013 when Hoke looked like a decent coach, in almost a decade.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||If you go back to 2008, only||
If you go back to 2008, only twice have we gotten the majority of the top 5 players in Michigan, and only two of the #1 recruits in the state. So over 8 years, Michigan has average1/4th of the best players in the state, and under 50% of the top 5 recruits. To me that isn't almost always getting the best in the state.

Would be nice. After Corely he's the recruit I want most in the state.

The only ones they catch are the idiots who who fall for their undercover agents looking for people to commit crimes.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||You are dealing with masters||
You are dealing with masters of manipulation with years of experience versus 17 year old kids and parents who are doing this for the first time. It's hardly a level playing field and no one brings that up when considering why these kids sign with these coaches. These guys are paid millions of dollars in large part because of their ability to be shady salesmen who promise the world and don't have to deliver any of it.

You mean since everything is written by "perpetually agrieved" DJ Byrnes? The nice thing about Mgoblog is that even as the commenters on the forums have gone downhill as the site grew, they haven't hired any lower quality writers.

Only players this may affect are other players at his school who are mentioned in this article. One is a top 20 2017 prospect already committed to them.

So glad I made the deal to split the pot with the person in my office who would win if Duke won. I had Wisconsin but had little faith in them win it all, so either way I would end up with half the pot.

I have Wisconsin, my boss has Duke. One of us wins, and the other comes in 10th or so, so we decided to split it either way. Nice to not have to worry about the winner.

Guess Harbaugh is really looking for a fullback.
