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.
|2 days 13 hours ago||You can be such a buzzkill||
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.
|3 days 7 hours 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.
|1 week 6 days ago||Maybe there's a balance||
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.
|1 week 6 days 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.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||What about Elmer and Reshke||
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.
|2 weeks 2 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.
|2 weeks 3 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.
|2 weeks 3 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.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||You mean since everything is||
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.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Only players this may affect||
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.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I have Wisconsin, my boss has||
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.

Funny thing is, the walking on the road side of the sidewalk actually originated in the middle ages. Back then, men had nicer clothing than women and it was dirtier to walk on the building side because of things like chamber pot waste being tossed out of windows.

I just use more than twice as much as I layer it a couple times by hand and curse the cheap bastards.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Is it that hard to just stand||
Is it that hard to just stand on the right? I hate the inconsiderate assholes who have plenty of room to stand on the right but instead stand on the left and act oblivious to the 10 people behind them who they inconvenience. It's about courtesy, who gives a shit if you think they are a bunch of "type-A wonks", move the fuck over or I will call you out.

Definitely agree on 1&2, and as a bit of a tangent to 2, I love to cook, and if I open up something like flour and I see it has bugs and I don't have any other flour, I'll just sift them out and use it. Won't serve it to anyone else out of respecting their wishes, but it's just extra protein.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||VCU||
Ever since Beilein obliterated the VCU team in a game that many predicted would be an upset, I haven't been able to think too highly of Smart. That game was beautiful in the textbook dismantling of the press.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||What do you mean depth being||
What do you mean depth being slowly constructed at the position? Michigan went from 3 scholarship QBs to 6 in 3 months, I'd say that's pretty damn fast.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||I believe Meyer also wanted||
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.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||I would say Michigan needs to||
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.

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.
