I like a bracket with Nova and Virginia as a 2 and 3, but I really don't like OK State as an 8.
|17 weeks 1 day ago||Practice||
Pretty sure there is a practice today, so I am sure they will be in attendance for that. And always a good time to beat the buckeyes with recruits in town!
|20 weeks 2 days ago||DG||
Don't forget that DG will be extremely limited in spring practice as well. Good for young guys development, but not for a great 2014.

Well, they should send him to the University of OIHO State University. Have her give Cardale Jones a call about how nobody is there to play school, just football.

Until you pin me, George, Festivus is not over!

Pretty sure I remember Pat Haden at USC saying he also watches film. I know USC is no Michigan to many on this board, but I am sure plenty of ADs with football backgrounds do this as well.
|31 weeks 4 days ago||Visits||
Which schools has he visited? I thought only UM, MSU and OSU. It looks like he is visiting bama this weekend and Florida the next. Has he visited FSU or LSU yet? The Army bowl is January 4th, and I can't see him committing to a school he hasn't visited

Tirico would also still be doing MNF, college bball, NBA, Golf as well as some tennis and ESPN personality show fill-ins. I am sure 13-14 saturdays wouldn't be too much or too little for him, especailly since 7-8 would be spent in his hometown.

Honestly, I think this is a reflection of a Hoke coached team. He prides himself to staying even keeled during games, never too high or too low. Honestly, I think this hurts a team like this. Sometimes a coach just needs to lose it and light a fire under his team's asses. Hoke won't do that. It is always the same rah rah, it's ok bs. Even his press conferences are terrible. "We had a good week in practice and I need to coach better." Get pissed! Show everyone that this won't continue. Stop playing players that aren't performing just because they are a senior, or a leader, or becasue they have experience (looking at you Fitz). Would a guy like Saban or Belichek do this? Hell no! You fumble, you sit the bench. You continue to fail at picking up pass protection, you sit the bench. You can't hit the hole without dancing around in the backfield, you sit the bench. Send a clear message that mediocrity won't stand. Otherwise, your players will mimic you and always play to the "Ho hum, it's ok. Good try" mentality that their coach displays. He reminds me of Carr, but even Carr would lose his shit from time to time on the sidelines. If he doesn't begin to show more intensity, I can't see his team doing it either.

Right, just like how Staee never is close to us when it comes to recruiting, but has beat us 5 out of the last 6 meetings. I understand what you are getting at, but not always true.
|33 weeks 4 days ago||Keisean Lucier-South||
Any word on Keisean Lucier-South? I seem to remember him being really high on UM, but not receiving an offer. I didn't see him included on the list Magnus has posted on his site. Is there not mutual interest, or has he moved on from UM since he didn't receive an offer? I know they are waiting on Cornell, but it seems silly to not offer a top 70 player, especially since they missed out on Hand. Even with limited scholarships, I would think the staff would have a few offers out there to top talent and still hold out for a top 10 player if the interest is there later on.
|34 weeks 15 hours ago||Minnesota||
And Minnesota, especially since we beat them 42-13.
|34 weeks 6 days ago||Briles||
Word is Briles has several connections in Texas (being a very respected former HS coach) and that he would stay at Baylor, or at worse wouldn't leave Texas. I think while his style would have great success here, he knows he can continue to pull top flight talent in Texas and keep them close to home. I cian't see him ever leaving that state. Also, Mattison only returned to UM because of Hoke (or so he says) but given his age and loyalty to Brady, I see no chance of him staying if they canned his friend.
|34 weeks 6 days ago||Line||
Honestly, unless the coaches have just given up and see no chance at further progression, I would like to see them change back to the line we started with to start the season. Maybe they think that Miller has hit his ceiling and they would rather develop the young guys for the future, but as bad as the Glasgow, Miller, Kalis line was to start, it has become much worse, not better since they made the multiple changes week after week. Maybe I am crazy, and I didn't think the interior line could become worse than the beginning of the year, but Funk and Co proved me wrong.
|34 weeks 6 days ago||Thoughts||
Thank you for helping to put all of this football nonsense further into perspective. I came to the board to see how bad everything had become today, and happened to open your post. I know everyone uses football as an outlet from the real world, but sometimes it seems to trump real life and consume them. Stories like this quickly change that. I hope nothing but the best for you and your family. My thoughts are with you. Go Blue seems far to trivial. Instead, GO MRS. BALL HAWK!!!
|43 weeks 6 days ago||Not True||
This is not true. They can receive up to 3 tickets. Here is a statement straight from MGOBLUE.com.
During an unofficial visit, the University of Michigan may not pay any expense or provide any entertainment except a maximum of three complimentary admissions (issued only through a pass list) to a home athletics event in which a Michigan team practices or competes. These complimentary admissions are for the issued on an individual-game basis. Additional tickets may not be reserved for purchase by the prospect and must be purchased only in the same manner as any other member of the general public. In addition, only seating in the general seating area may be provided. The University of Michigan may not provide special seating for the prospect or the prospect's parents [or legal guardian(s)] or spouse in the facility's press box, special seating boxes) or bench area.
|44 weeks 6 days ago||Seats||
I went to several games with recruits and we usually had seats within the first ten rows behind the UM bench. It is awesome to be so close to the players, but I would prefer to be about 35 rows up to get a better view of the field. Still amazing seats, though.

He had arthroscopic knee surgery, and is expected to miss 2 weeks.

|48 weeks 6 days ago||Dennis||
My guess is that the name Dennis just sounds like a guy from Wisconsin, so they are just calling him on it.
|48 weeks 6 days ago||24/7||
24/7 has him listed for an unofficial for UTL II. That recruiting weekend is going to be insane!
|48 weeks 6 days ago||Canzior||
If I recall, Canzior is a coach that traveled with Hand on his visit to UM. I think he has some good insight into the top players in this area and is probably not just insuating anything, but stating truths. I believe the camp in Chicago was the Rivals 5* camp and I think that players are helped out with costs for these camps, but I am not certain about that. Otherwise, he didn't do much traveling for visits. I am surprised at the number of officials many of these players take and the distance traveled. It always makes me wonder how it is affordable, seeing how some of these kids are not from the best areas and have stated as much.
|49 weeks 4 days ago||5?||
Taken 5, but ended with 6? I'll take those odds!
|51 weeks 5 days ago||I'm here||
I'm here for the 5 year pos bang! Haven't seen a lot of you in a while. Miss the good old days.

Headband in my glass bowl!
|1 year 7 weeks ago||So Miss||
Gundy banned Lunt from going to So. Miss because OSU's old O-Coordinator is now thier coach. A lot of coaches do this because the kid was supposed to commit to the program, and not one particular coach.
|1 year 9 weeks ago||2015||
Don't we technically have a 2015 commit in Brady Pallante? I don't see how we will have an available scholarship this year the way the class is filling up.

Would love to see it, but I'm not sure Robinson can have that many visitors in a week, yet alone a day.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||Question about Gardner and coaching time||
Hoke said that Gardner is watching a ton of film and meeting with Al a lot. My question is, how is this counted towards coachable hours? Coaches can only be with players for 20 hours per week, and I am not quite sure about meeting with them outside of practice. If Al and Devin are watching film together outside of practice time, is this counted as coached hours? Everything I see only talks about the 20 hours that coaches can use of players time, but doesn't talk about any other meetings with players on their own time. I know during stretchgate, there was a lot of confusion about what is and isn't counted, and it focused a lot on stretching with coaches present. So is this the same with a player constantly calling a coach and watching film with him, or how is that viewed?
