Because if you don't bring them on visits you don't even have a shot. Even if you have a 1% shot, it can be worth it for a school like Michigan and it's refreshing to see instead of the Hoke mentality of turning away visitors who weren't super interested in MIchigan.

At least with the camp visit Michigan doesn't mind taking a chance with an official from a kid who is unlikely to switch from the school he is committed to. Don't think the previous staff did that much and it never hurts to take a shot if you think they can play. Worst thing that happens is they say no.

2017 recruit from out of state. It's unlikely OSU would keep all their 2017 kids anyway with so long until signing day. OSU has lost a total of 3 games in 3 years under Meyer, nothing's crumbling down until he retires, he moves on, or Harbaugh beats him into submission.

At this point though, the B1G offenses haven't tainted the rankings too much as we've just started conference play. Right now Michigan has played more Pac12 teams than B1G teams.

I'm not sure the two teams combined will score 12 points.

Well its interesting because people find it interesting.
|2 days 18 hours ago||Yes too late. Needs to not||
Yes too late. Needs to not have played more than 30% of the season so it's a couple games late for the medical redshirt.
|2 days 18 hours ago||I think it's 2 games too late||
I think it's 2 games too late for medical redshirt, as he needs to have competed in less than 30% of the season.

Lets go for 3 in a row.
|2 days 18 hours ago||Very little difference||
Very little difference between 12 points and 13 points, as it is unlikely that Maryland can score 3 times with a little over a quarter to play. So no risk in going for 2 to make it a 2 touchdown lead.
|3 days 11 hours ago||Not saying they aren't a||
Not saying they aren't a decent team, just that you can't learn much beating up on a team with a defense onlly slightly better than CMU, and an offense worse than 114 other NCAA teams.
|3 days 11 hours ago||Thought BYU's defense looked||
Thought BYU's defense looked good, then looked up UCONN and saw their offense is 115th in S&P rankings, and their defense is 69th. Not sure we will learn much about BYU from this game in relation to Michigan.
|5 days 17 hours ago||I don't know if anyone has||
I don't know if anyone has seen the Patriots formation where they line up with 4 TEs split out wide and dare opponents to have 4 players who can cover that many big recievers. I'd love Michigan to copy that and line up with Butt, Bunting, Wheatley and Williams.
Here's an article on the formation:

My biggest concern for the MSU game is they always seems to spend months watching Michigan film and are able to exploit something that other teams hadn't found. I'm sure Harbaugh has been made aware of MSU's intense focus on this game and can show some completely different looks to waste all the time MSU spent preparing.

Is the NW defense really that good? I haven't watched them this season.
|1 week 1 day ago||Our stats on offense are a||
Our stats on offense are a bit depressed considering Harbaugh seems perfectly content to close the playbook once Michigan is firmly on top and just rep stuff for practice against a live defense. a BYU parent said that the players were totally not prepared for MIchigan because Michigan brought an entirely new game plan for this game like an NFL team while BYU just planned to execute their game. That's why plays like the double fake to the sidelines then hitting the TE up the middle was so open.
Defense definitely needs to force more turnovers, but it's very impressive how stingy they have been on defense without forcing that many turnovers.

Kawakami's twitter feed is pretty funny. I get the impression his take on the Harbaugh to Michigan stuff last year was more because he was a huge Harbaugh fan and didn't want him to leave.

Not a bad idea on Hankerson, I'll look into it. Can't afford to have a 3rd WR unable to play sitting on my bench with Jeffrey and Bryant.
|1 week 1 day ago||I would go Robinson, NE||
I would go Robinson, NE defense isn't great and they will need to try to score a lot to keep up with that O.
|1 week 1 day ago||I would go Randle and Lewis.||
I would go Randle and Lewis. Baltimore is a solid defense and Gio isn't even the starter. I have him on my bench but I think for now last week was a fluke. And NE has shown no signs of going away from Lewis though you never know with BB. I avoided Lewis after I got burned by NE RBs the last couple of seasons but am kicking myself now over not picking him up week 1. My league this year everyone seems to pick up the hot waiver wire picks 1 week before they end up on all the must own lists.
|1 week 1 day ago||Wish I could but have a bench||
Wish I could but have a bench of Bradford, Deangelo Williams, M Bryant, Matt Jones, A Jeffrey, and Gio Bernard. And I can't find any suitible replacements to play this week. Just couldn't get on the Benjamin train just like everyone else in my league as he went through the waiver wire unclaimed. Was going to go for Crabtree but he was taken first pick and I know 3 people ahead of me were also after him.
|1 week 1 day ago||Not sure if it's good or bad||
Not sure if it's good or bad that I have no choices this week. With Alshon Jeffrey and Martavis Bryant on my bench I'm forced to start Charles Johnson as my WR3 and Doug Martin as my flex. I took the long play this year drafting Bell and Bryant and somehow I'm 2-0 when I was kind of expecting 1-1 or 0-2 in order to pick up some break out stars on the waiver wire.

Maybe the USC game was a fluke and Stanford still treats the USC game the way Harbaugh did when Carroll was there. Similar to Hoke and OSU, looks like a completely different team against their rivals.

If that second link is correct then fuck SAE, the color red has no place on Michigan's campus.

He probably was being vindictive. Figured if the kid wanted to transfer a few months after taking up a spot in his class, why not prevent him from going to the schools he was also considering at the time.

Yes, Flanken is a Jewish term for the cut and they are clasically braised and served with horseradish. Many supermarkets won't have them unless there are large Jewish populations or Korean populations.

Considering you only cook them for 6-8 minutes even getting to medium well still leaves plenty of fat. I just found that when I went medium rare as I do for other steaks they are tough, and cooking more made them more tender. In Argentina they would put them off to the side after initial cooking and let them slowly cook to well done there and they were still super tender and moist.

They would all work on a gas grill. And most people who are serious about grilling have both because charcoal is a lot of work for a weeknight and gas is great for dinner or small groups.
|1 week 4 days ago||I first had this cut 15 years||
I first had this cut 15 years ago when I was in Argentina and it would be part of the mixed grill the family I stayed with would make every time they had company. They are also great as a quick dinner if you have a gas grill and want some quick delicious beef without having to worry too much about doneness as these tend to be better cooked medium to medium well due to the high amount of fat.
Another culture that grills the same cut as well is Koreans and it's among the best parts of Korean BBQ. Pretty big indication that this is a great cut when Korea, Argentina, and Texas all cook it on the grill.

DId you actually watch the clip? There's an unblocked guy 4 yards away from him when he releases the ball. Johnson is curving up field as it's thrown, as if he were running a wheel route which does not seem to be the play call. The QB isn't supposed to watch the receivers' route and adjust accordingly on quick plays like that, he needs to know where they will be because he doesn't have time to adjust the throw much after the snap.
