I'm not sure how long they have been away from Ann Arbor but it seems to me its been a few weeks. Hotel food, no home environment, and just a different schedule. It gets to you. Plus these two teams we played today are very good teams. Florida is #1 and I'm not sure where ASU ranks right now. Just a bad day. The bad part is the selection committee won't care that you traveled for a month. Plus the Big Ten is pretty weak. We should make the tournament but this hurts our chances to host a regional or super regional even if we win the Big Ten.

I just commented on the "hero" issue. It was you who started insulting me with the "arresting people for having a dime bag" thing. I'm sure if you said that to any LEO you didn't know, it would be insulting to them like it was to me. And you make it worse by calling me Francis. Thats a left handed apology I guess.
|23 hours 54 min ago||If that's the best insult you can come with||
I feel sorry for you. Narrow minded to say the least.

But why call him a "hero". Hate the misuse of the word. He was a Good Samaritan but not a hero. I spent 25 years in the Michigan Department of State Police and never thought that I was a hero. Hero's give their life so that others may live. Harbaugh is talented in his field quit propping him up on this pedestal. People have him so high up, he falls it will kill him.

If P5 schools get to hand out different amounts of money then that creates a recruiting disadvantage. Some recruits will select a school because they are going to get a few thousand dollars more versus a school they may like better or offers a better education. No matter the arguments all P5 schools need to be equal or there will never be equality in recruiting.

With Baldwin the player. I'm sure coach has had it with Baldwin's antics. I'm not condoning the outburst but I'm sure in the moment coach's frustration set in and he just exploded. It happens all the time in sports. I say the media is reporting but also the media is over reporting this incident. With cameras, microphones, and smart phones everywhere you can't make the smallest mistake without it blowing up.

Injured or Red shirt?

Will focus on dedication to the program and making sure the seniors know it's their responsibility to ensure everyone is on board. The seniors will be told how to handle the underclass men and what's expected of them. Drill work will be described and all will be told how important it is to pay attention to detail.

Not many teams are having to play walk on's and play them significant minutes like we are. The season is done but that's not the fault of the coaches. This team lost a bunch of talent and couldn't catch up in recruiting. We are young and hurt. Not a good prescription for success.
|3 weeks 3 hours ago||Sam Webb has talked about Chatman||
many times. Even before Chatman got to Michigan, Webb said Chatman was a late bloomer, that he was not going to come in and be a star or play productively like many other highly touted freshmen. Well Sam's projections of Chatman hit the mark. Chatman seems lost any time he is on the floor. I'm sure most of this is mental and that he just isn't comfortable. It's just amazing how a kid can be rated a top 30 player and yet play so poorly. It could be many things. I've heard that he is not working out in the weight room, that he is injured and add into it the speed of the game, he is just suffering growing pains. Let's give the kid another year and see if the light comes on. After that it will lead to less or more playing time. If it's more then that's good. If it's less then he probably will move on to another school. I'm willing to wait and see.

At Jackson and Maple. We just had a sandwich and had never been there before. It was horrible. Very small portions and quality was bad. I hope the deli is better. I'm willing to try that one.

He tweeted that her punctuation and spelling were bad. She was just posting how upset she was with Michigan fans for tweeting negative stuff to her son.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||However- Meyer is revered by the press||
I agree with you that Weber should speak out. But with all the talking heads loving Meyer so much, I'm not sure if Meyer gets hurt. Would love to see Meyer try to defend himself though.
|4 weeks 2 hours ago||People think recruits go to a school because of the Head Coach||
It is the Head Coach that finishes the deal but in actuality recruits normally don't have much day to day contact with Head Coaches after the season starts. It's the Position Coach that becomes most important to the player. The Position Coach becomes way more involved with the player than any Head Coach or even a Coordinator. The only exception is the QB. So when you lose your Position Coach you may also lose playing time because the new Position Coach might have a different philosophy about you and your competition.

When you live in another state laws are different. In Michigan you can just sign and mail. You might not be able to do that in Pennsylvania. Also some states require you to give up your license as a bond till the ticket is paid. When I was in the State Police we took licenses all the time in lieu of a bond. No matter. Young student athletes don't know all the ins and outs of handling these matters. I'm not talking about fixing tickets. Just how to handle the situation so you don't get your license suspended.
|4 weeks 3 hours ago||My son was recruited for basketball||
Two years ago. During the official visit we met the "Team Dad". We were told that if my son came to this school, the young man was the person to call "first" for anything. Your late for class, you get a ticket, your car won't start, you get hungry and you have no money, etc. this young man was a graduate assistant and handled all the minor things that head coaches can't be bothered with. It's a normal position and one that's needed when dealing with student athletes. Even more so when 120 players on s football team need answers to minor incidents they get involved in, academic or personal.

Is Lyon's a good DB or a great DB. It's not like we hired a family member to get the #1 corner in the country. Other than Lyon's is a smart young man because he is a student at Stanford, what kind of a football player is he. This may also take some pressure off Harbaugh's wife, who may not be ready for this recruiting aspect and taking care of the players thing that is expected of coaches wives.
|4 weeks 18 hours ago||According to Mike Weber who put out a||
Twitter "I'm hurt as hell, I ain't gone lie". So it appears to me he did not know Drayton was leaving. I researched the NCAA LOI information and Weber can appeal. I'm not sure the NCAA would allow his appeal based on a position coach leaving. But Weber has an option. It's so early in the process he might get his LOI overturned.

Play with the same rules everyone is using. Quit being a martyr.

If they are afraid of competition. If someone goes down do we want another Bellomy situation. Load the cupboard. Pick which one you want to use.

Mainly because he didn't get Clark or Marshall. I can't believe the hate for Michigan around the media circles. Why aren't they talking about the disappointing class MSU put together. MSU has had four 11 win seasons and could only recruit the 22nd or 23rd best class. If Michigan had won 11 games each of the last four years we would have at least a top 10 class and maybe top 5. But according to Dantonio, MSU is recruiting strong and getting big time players. So the talking heads leave MSU alone and still claim Harbaugh fell on his face today even though Michigan was in on at least 3 Five Stars and many 4 Stars. Damn the haters. They are going to get theirs. Michigan didn't get those guys but who would have thought they would be in any position to get a 5 Star kid with only 3 weeks recruiting. Amazing.

That Joe Hastings, Pro Personnel Director, for the Philadelphia Eagles. has been hired by Harbargh to be on the staff. I think this the new hire not the Paramus Catholic coach.
