Ambry has now taken the lead, well done everybody
|12 weeks 5 days ago||Paye||
His story screams Harbaugh. Read an extensive article on his immigration at a young age from Africa, and growing up in a non football family, in a relatively non football state being from RI. Kid's family worked through tough circumstances, and his high school coach emphasizes Paye's humble nature and diligent work ethic. With his raw athleticism and size in Harbaugh's system, I'm excited to see what he can become. Great story too in the mold of Darboh and Chesson.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||DT vs. DE||
My exact thoughts. He tweeted a while back that people ask him the same question, and he said something along the lines that he, "prefers to just be considered a d lineman, since he's lost 50 pounds"
I have no idea what to think of that, but thought it would be relevant news lol
|12 weeks 6 days ago||Recruiting implications||
A definite plus coming from this loss is in recruiting. Additionally, if OSU were to lose to Nebraska (long shot imo), they could potentially drop 3 Ls in big ten play. Ohio is currently putting together one of the best recruiting classes in history--one would have to think three losses could change that.
|20 weeks 5 days ago||Minnesota Game||
I was at the Minnesota game last year--in the Minny student section none the less (I'm in college, it's normal)--and the second Speight stepped on to the field, I, too, stepped on to an emotional rollercoaster. It wasn't pretty, but it shouldn't be overlooked that he finished that drive. Little did I know, the roller coaster wasn't finished until after a goal line stand. That game had me all types of confused. Then I literally bumped into Brad Nessler while leaving the stadium. Anyway, I love the quote from Speight about the speed of the game. I'm definitely okay with the offense in his hands, given the weapons we have at literally every other position on this roster. Also, coaching staff.

Here's an old e-mail account--we have to get in touch sometime, I'm sick of hearing about Nebraska.
|23 weeks 2 days ago||No way||
Woah. I live in Sioux Falls.
Born and raised here, but have always been a huge Michigan fan. I'm currently in college at the U of South Dakota -- toured U of M, got accepted, but $60,000 without any financial aid given as an out of state student took the back seat to a near academic full ride in state.
I'm absolutely shocked that there's been someone from Sioux Falls on the blog this whole time.
|23 weeks 2 days ago||SoDak Blues?!||
I've been reading mgoblog for quite a while now and I'm shocked I've never noticed your username.. Are you from South Dakota??
|24 weeks 6 days ago||My bad||
My bad, I thought I read somewhere that if they got their man, they might call it good depending on how big the class got
|24 weeks 6 days ago||Agreed||
Falo was a go to target for McCaffery at The Opening, and would definitely be a great get at TE. After taking three TEs last class and having Dunaway in the fold for 2018, along with Mustapha as an elite TE target in 18 as well, it's doubtful that Michigan will take 2 TEs this class. We'll see how things shake out--definitely a positive to have options
|27 weeks 4 days ago||Radley-Hiles||
Brendan Radley-Hiles will be a really tough pull away from Nebraska. I know, call me crazy, but the Calabasas to Nebraska movement is legit. Keyshawn Johnson Jr. is spearheading it, along with Tristen Gebbia, and they have a real shot at Darnay Holmes. They're even calling it Calabraska. Mike Riley has the connection with Keyshawn Johnson, and it's really paying dividends for them. At this point, I'd be shocked if Radley-Hiles committed elsewhere (yes, I know 2018 recruit/long time away).
|37 weeks 3 days ago||Dunk Contest||
I was checking out his high school's basketball twitter page and they had a dunk contest of which Baruti didn't even win. The winner: Bismarck Biyombo's younger brother who is a 2017 recruit. I can't imagine anybody was able to match-up with them athletically, cause Baruti could easily be the most athletic kid on our roster from day one. Wouldn't be a bad pick up this late in the cycle, with a lot of potential to work with. Biyombo's younger brother could be a potential target with the size next year's class might be too
|37 weeks 6 days ago||Dillon and St. Juste||
Incredible numbers for both at their size. St. Juste's shuttle time would have been good for 2nd in this year's NFL combine. With Samuel's sparq score leading the nation, and DPJ likely to give him some competition for that honor, this class could be insane athletically.
|39 weeks 5 days ago||TB12 on the edit lol||
I find it hilarious that on the "Plus" section of the magazine edit they list top athletes and the NFL player listed is Tom Brady
|41 weeks 5 days ago||Perfect Beilein Guard||
Poole is the epitome of what Beilein needs in his offense. Great shooter with a quick release, who is also a smooth athlete and can handle the ball well. Poole isn't going to wow you with the athleticism that seems to have become the norm with top prospects now days, but he's a skilled player. Little old man in his game. His pull up jumper will be extremely beneficial at the college level
|42 weeks 12 hours ago||Taylor = Asiasi||
He reminds me a lot of Devin Asiasi. Big body, mobile, can play TE or DE. And just like Asiasi, Taylor got some snaps at wildcat. His basketball film is pretty good too--just a great athlete in a huge body. Here's to hoping we can hold on to him and Antuwan Johnson as well, makes it a little easier with the two being teammates and good friends.
|46 weeks 4 days ago||Maybe he wanted to get away||
I think a lot of people automatically assume that since he's a Michigan kid, Ann Arbor specifically, he's gotta be blue. How many non athletes from Michigan want to go to college elsewhere? A lot. He's a junior in high school--my junior year in high school there's no way I wanted to go to college 5 minutes from home. There's a lot of time left in the process, but not every kid wants to stay in state when they can go full ride literally anywhere in the country
|48 weeks 3 days ago||Lol||
That's so awkward for Stribling lol. Did Robinson really have to tattoo his name on the jersey?? I can't imagine my friends and family knowing that I'm tattooed on another man's body
|50 weeks 2 days ago||Futher comparison||
Futher comparison in terms of ranking: UAB's #62 ranked class puts them ahead of Purdue, Illinois, and Rutgers. Additionally, Northwestern and Indiana both finished in the 50s, while Iowa and Minnesota finished 47 and 48. Each of those schools had at least 20 recruits as well (the benchmark number that goes into the national ranking). Understandable that UAB's class is almost entirely JUCOs, but still pretty impressive without a current program. Also, the Big Ten finished pretty lopsided in recruiting rankings.
|51 weeks 4 days ago||Huge Get||
This is a huge get as a PWO. Love the nastiness and ferocity in his film. And to accept a PWO when he has full ride offers? Kid wants to prove he can play at the highest level. Drevno and Harbaugh in your corner doesn't hurt either
|1 year 1 week ago||Devin Bush Sr.||
Devin Bush Sr. would be a great addition as a recruiting assistant in my opinion. I know it's been talked about on here before, but much like Partridge, Bush took a middling Flanagan program to a state title at the highest level in Florida. He was a guest speaker at the summer camp, his son is on the team, and Mich needs to retain a Florida presence. The stars are aligning
|1 year 1 week ago||Assistant Special Teams Coach||
Could he possibly be sharing the special teams with another coach? For instance, Partridge and Jay could both be assistant ST coaches? In that case, there technically isn't a head ST coach, but two assistants... speculation.
|1 year 1 week ago||Little Rumors||
I thought the Little rumors formulated because the secret visitor was supposedly someone at the UA game? I'm probably wrong, but for some reason I thought that was part of the description. Oh well, Dwumfour looks to be quick and strong and his relationship with Gary doesn't hurt either. We'll have a lot of exits on the DL next year, so getting depth now would be beneficial.

|1 year 2 weeks ago||Fifth star||
Fifth star is coming at the end of the week ;) lol just wishful thinking. I was thinking fringe five star in my head, but apparently omitted it, my bad.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||Long||
Peters posted one, and then David Long later posted another picture with just himself and Dylan Crawford also saying GoBlue. You can see both pictures from the link in the original post
|1 year 2 weeks ago||Peters||
If you're talking about the picture of three guys, the one who took the selfie is Brandon Peters.. our qb commit... 5 star.. the second coming
|1 year 2 weeks ago||All them||
It's from the official AA game snapchat account. The players take their own photos and videos and add their own captions from their own phones and then send it to the account which conglomerates them as a whole.

Gary's a freak
|1 year 2 weeks ago||Gary and Bush||
Rashan Gary with a congratulatory hit on the butt of Devin Bush after that tackle.. not reading too far into this, but he's definitely a lock.
