I believe Meyer also wanted to bring him to OSU previously and was turned down. Not this off season, and maybe not a DC position like he had at Florida but I believe he was offered a job.

I would say Michigan needs to start landing more recruits in the 100-25 range, players who are good but not 1 and done types. Beilein runs a complicated system that freshmen tend to struggle with at first and isn't condusive to going pro after 1 year. But as we've seen with players like Stauskas and Burke, there's a pretty big payoff to staying 2 years and going through the program when you have the requisite work ethic and ability. I don't see any way that Michigan becomes a Kentucky or Duke, but being a team like MSU except with faster development seems like a nice ceiling, as long as the coaches can keep bringing in enough recruits for the early exits.

This was what I was thinking when I heard the jerseys were going away. Maybe a patch for the season and then for homecoming they wear the jersey. Don't have to give them all out each year, but allows them to honor a few each year.

Someone better tell Costello's mom that the job is no longer available.

I feel like most if their rational posters have left or given up, and the juvenile fans have the run of the place now. A bit of the same happened here with some of the original mgoblog posters quit as readership grew.

What's sad is it's one of their main writers who posts them. After reading Brian's moniker for DJ Byrnes, perpetually aggrieved, I can't help but laugh every time I see a post of his about Michigan. The guy really does act like a child most of the time.

Do they make synthetic hamstrings they can replace his with?

Looks like Harbaugh is going to take full advantage of this loophole while it exists. With Michigan suddenly setting up half a dozen camps around the country I can't imagine this will be allowed for long. The SEC/PAC12/Big12 are not going to like the idea of the teams from the talent poor states of the midwest coming and encroaching on their turf. Hopefully Michigan can build the relationships this year with the sophomores and freshmen to land a few after this is no longer allowed.

That just gets clunky and over complicated. Does forcing teams to kick a 40 yard kick for 1 pt really excite people? Why not just make it automatic and get on with the game.
|1 week 1 day ago||It should be just worth 7 and||
It should be just worth 7 and you give up 1 point if you want to try for 2. The idea of moving it back to the 25 yard line and then declaring you are going for 2 and moving it back up to the 2.5 is such a clunky rule. Kickig from the 2.5 is essentially automatic and just an unecessary delay of the game. In the current state, after a TD I find something else to do for the next 5 minutes instead of watchig XP-->commercial-->kickoff-->commercial.

Yea, only reason I gave OSU a chance against VCU was because VCU didn't have any big starters, allowing OSU to play their small line up. Any other match up and I doubt they would have won.

Then wouldn't Michigan's 2012 team have been an NBA playoff team by that logic? 2 top 10 drafted players, 4 first total first rounders, a second rounder, and another potential top 10 draftee in Levert?

I love the academic stuff, seems Harbaugh wasn't lying when he made the comment about academics at Michigan and in addition to building up the football side of the program is also committed to building the academic side.

Of course, why didn't I think of it sooner, the dancing and having fun was the issue last year. It had nothing to do with poor coaching or only having 9 blockers, if he just hadn't been having a good time dancing when nothing was going on he could have been a superstar.

It has nothing to do with our generation, listen to any politician or public person of any age issue an apology and it's hollow and no wrongdoing is admitted.

I've oftened wondered what there was to prevent paying players after they graduated, just wish I had thought to come up with charging a 9% fee on all money paid to the players.

Read over your first two sentences and ask yourself if you would use those words to describe Gardner if he were white. I'm tired of these stereotypical descriptors of players based on their skin color.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||That works in pick up games||
That works in pick up games but in bounds plays are not just guys running around trying to get open. They are drawn up to get certain guys open in a good position. Think of it like a football play, the combination of routes may not make sense to the casual observer but in a smart offense they all serve a purpose in the overall design of the play.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||They are very different||
They are very different players though. If Williams can become a good blocker, he's essentially a 6th OL at his size. Neither Bunting nor Butt have the size to play that roll. If you want 2 recieving TEs on the field then hopefully Bunting passes WIlliams for that spot.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||I would guess it's the||
I would guess it's the ability to make the throws that are there and protect the ball. I get the feeling the offense will be very vanilla this year, lots of running to set up play action and methodical drives down the field. Need a QB who can make short passes to pick up first downs and keep the chains moving, not someone with a cannon who can throw 70 yards but also has a tendency to turf the ball. Malzone fits that mold best of the available QBs this, and is one of only 3 going through spring ball.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Just because Luck being great||
Just because Luck being great had nothing to do with bringing in 2 QBs a year, and Stanford hasn't had success outside of Luck at the QB position since 2008 does not mean the 2 QBs a year wasn't responsible for Stanford's wins. Bringing in a lot of QBs allowed Harbaugh to find one who could be great and given the quality of the QBs since Luck left he certainly would have brought in a lot more than Shaw has.

I have never understood the allure of hedgefunds. Their fees always sound absurd to me, things like 2% of managed funds plus 20% of profits. Even if they could outperform the market by 3% you would still lose money.

It definitely has, but they also haven't paid rent in 35 years. I figure taxes + upkeep equal out with rent, pluse there is $2200 a month in rental income from one floor(now that kids moved out), so I was considering it breaking even.

Did Shaw learn nothing from Harbaugh on the importance of having a lot of shots at a great QB?

I'm not advocating frequent trading with your portfolio, but if you invest in a broad range of individual stocks with the intention of holding them for a long time, you should have greater annual returns than an index fund because you aren't charged any fees. Even if it's .5%, that can add up a lot over 20 years.

This is probably the best advice here for someone looking to start investing long term for retirement. I was recently looking at the growth of the S&P as well as the DJIA over the last 35 years(when my parents bought their house) and both have gone up about 20 fold, exactly the same as the house. I had gone into the research thinking the house would have had a greater return but it was pretty even. And the stock market is a lot less work than owning a house.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||When you have more money, you||
When you have more money, you can buy multiple individual stocks to diversify as well instead of using mutual funds to do that. Even the lowest fee mutual funds take some cut so you are better off just owning the stocks themselves. You can certainly do just fine going index funds and mutual funds but will likely have a slightly lower return.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||If you have a small amount of||
If you have a small amount of money to invest (under $100k), you want to diversify and mutual funds are probably the easiest way to do that. Individual stocks have too much risk and you don't really have enough money to buy multiple stocks without losing too much to transaction fees. Look for low fee mutual funds as fees can seriously eat into any returns. 1-2% may not seem like a ton but look at the difference in growth over a couple decades at 7% vs 5% and it really adds up.
