Either it's a very bad year in the midwest for talent in 2015 or they haven't gotten as much exposure as the southern schools where there seem to be more camps and spring football. In the top 100, the only Michigan kid is Brian Cole and there are only 4 Ohio kids.

Impressive that Burke has 3" more vertical jump than those two considering his athleticism has been questioned.

I think players and their families are wising up a bit about the importance of academics and the chances of making it into the league. Plus with increased revenue from shared networks and such, more academic oriented schools can start to put more into their facilities.

I don't think it's a good idea to talk sports with a rival fan who puts sharp objects in your mouth.

Took me a couple months to start getting the magazine which has your account number printed on it. But you can wait a week or two and then call ESPN to get the account number you need to activate insider.

I was never really a basketball fan until I started following this team at the beginning of the season. I learned a ton about the sport and enjoyed watching the way this team played and the flow of the game. Once the season was over and with no football to watch I figured I'd check out some fo the NBA playoffs. I hated it. The game seemed to be disjointed and had no flow. It was bring ball up, one guy dribbles for a bit and then chucks up a shot. It lacked the energy I was accustomed to seeing Michigan play with. No one was getting offensive rebounds because everyone was running back to play defense and there were 3 defenders around the ball. There didn't seem to be many plays run and even with the faster shot clock the game actually felt slow. I tried watching a few other times and then just gave up.

Why can't Brandon make a deal with IU and have them flip their UM/MSU games while Michigan and MSU flip their games? It probably should have been that way in the first place, but maybe the ADs can work something out. It should work out better for MSU as well because as it is they have ND and Michigan both home/away the same year. Only reason I coudl see MSU against it is because their one goal in life is the mess up Michigan's schedule and feel like they got one over on Michigan by getting 2 home games in a row.
Edit: And maybe Brandon likes it because in odd years he can jack up prices more than usual due to the slate of games at home.

Will be hard to pull that off now with divisions and making sure every team has 4 home and 4 away games.
|6 days 19 hours ago||Brandon should reach out to||
Brandon should reach out to IU and pay them to switch the locations of their MSU/UM games around so that UM/MSU can do the same. I think it would work better for both teams. Right now MSu gets ND, OSU and Michigan on the road all in the same year. Their fans probably won't care though because just messing with MIchigan by getting 2 home games in a row is like Christmas to them.
|6 days 19 hours ago||Would be better for MSU to||
Would be better for MSU to switch the Michigan game too, they get OSU as home in the same year as MIchigan at home. Looks like the basis for the set up was that OSU, Michigan, and PSU each play one home and one away game against the other two. Can't say I blame that methodology but Michigan's schedule got screwed.
|6 days 19 hours ago||Aren't we playing at ND that||
Aren't we playing at ND that year as well? Is there any reason to buy season tickets in 2014 then? So you can watch IU, PSU, MD and MINN, and then Miami, Utah, and App State?
Really need to flip the MSU game as both rivalry games will be either home or away each year.

I'm not putting them at the same level. But if they are recruiting well at MSU's level then that's another tier of recruits that MSU loses out on, may actually hurt them even more than the other 3 recruiting well.
|1 week 16 hours ago||Very interesting the way OSU||
Very interesting the way OSU has all local kids so far while almost half of Michigan's commits are from outside the B1G footprint. I'm sure OSU will get their national commits, but maybe Meyer shifted his strategy to focus a bit more locally. And it seems that Fitzgerald got Meyer's message to step up his recruiting game. If OSU, ND, UM, and NU are all recruiting at a high level, it's going to be really tough for MSU to capitalize on their recent success and get top players from the area.

Sounds like a really interesting concept. Storage seems like it would be a problem though. Out of curiousity how do you intend to store all of this content?

You can sign up with discount mags for daily specials. When the espn one comes up you can jump on it and take yourself off the list. I believe I got 3 or 4 years for about $12.

Apparently Hoke is terrible at math. He drove out Robinson to make more room even though Robinson's a senior.
Had some hope that he would make an impact this year, especially on running downs. Hope he finds a school where he can play for a year and maybe get some NFL attention at least as a special teamer.

Probably walkng a decent distance south of the wall so that no one on the wall can see them. My only question is why the weather changes so much south of the wall. I feel like it should still be cold and snowy where they are.

Doesn't necessarily surprise me considering the early playing time you can offer along with the fact that by the time these kids get to campus there will only be 2 years left of bowl ban so they can still go to a couple of bowls. Now if they start to suck this year and next it could be a rough road, but there will always be Pennsylvania kids who want to go to PSU to make up at least part of the class.

From everything the coaches have said, the difference between backup and starter among the front 7 may be only where they are listed on the depth chart. Hoke and Mattison have said they want to rotate heavily to the point where the players on the 2 deep get close to equal carries. That's the reason a player like Pipkins is the backup NT rather than the starting 3 tech.

My concern against MSU is the interior OL. They looked lost during the spring. The defense should be stout, maybe even a bit better than last year if they can generate a pass rush with just 4 players, but we saw how a mediocre at best interior OL really killed the running game. If they can get that straightened out the offense should fare better than last year against MSU. Their defense will definitely be good again though their losses in the secondary will hopefully give Gardner and Michigan an advantage.

I feel aweful for not being able to stop laughing at this. Maybe because I am already very familiar with how China treats animals. DO NOT google the Chinese tiger wine industry if you are an animal lover.

Seems they may go the JUCO route to fill the holes in the OL.
