Totally agree. In the business of being a GM of a team there is a ton of posturing and misinformation. That's half the job especially on draft day. This story pisses me off. Millen was such an epic disaster because he just isn't smart.

Home Lions game a couple years ago. It was my buddies bachelor party and I was the best man so we pulled a Michigan @home game Saturday followed by a Lions @home game Sunday. The Michigan game was cold and rainy and pretty awful but we partied pretty hard obviously.
My buddies dad is with us. He used to be a cook on a Navy ship for a bunch of years and he is pretty old but he was partying right along witht the rest of us as he likes to do.
Anyway Sunday rolls around and we are tailgating for the Lions game and it was actually pretty nice out. We all start hitting the booze pretty heavy. I look over and the old man is sitting in the party van on the steps. I walk over to him and he grabs my shoulder and his eyes roll back in his head. I yell to my buddy and he runs over and we all think his dad is having a heart attack and dying. We call an ambulance and he is rushed to the hospital. My buddy hops in the ambulance and rides with him. The rest of us walk to the hospital.
Turns out the old man was dehydrated from partying too hard with us for two days. Pretty horrible day as my buddy literally thought his dad was dying in his arms. Pretty awful emotional experience for him. Anyway I still tell my buddy to this day "Remember that time we almost killed your dad at your bachelor party?"

|1 week 6 days ago||Amen. You can come through||
You can come through the wonderful tradition and sometimes brutal competition that is the Michigan experience in many different ways. Dave Brandon went through and became a seething prick who belittled people and laughed as he drank his wine and smoked his cigars. This is where terms like "Michigan Arrogance" come from.
Others, many many others, come through it with a new view of life. They see the potential they have to make other people, situations and circumstances around them better. This is where the term "The Michigan Difference" comes from.
I guess in the end it is all about a choice. Dave Brandon has repeatedly chosen poorly.
Very well put Mr. Cook.

I feel awful. Too many beers last night and I smoked for whatever reason and that just makes it all so much worse. GF is in bed still and I've already downed a 32 oz Gatorade. Nothing is helping. Considering going up the road for a couple Hot 'n Ready s . Ugh.

If they really want better NCAA games they would nix the one and done rule. The superstars that just go to UK because they have to would be gone and the games would be more competitive and good coaches would develop good players and have better teams thus better play. I've always hated the one and done rule. If you have the ability to make a living playing ball you should be allowed to do so wherever you choose. This is America.

It's amazing to me how many D1 recievers come out of high school with the "doesnt have good hands" tag.
It's like... Great QB - all the physical tools. Can't throw.
Not saying that this kid doesnt have good hands. Never seen him play, but it's just really odd.
I don't think you can coach hand eye coordination. Maybe the 10,000 hours rule applies, but sheesh.
EDIT: SHOULD HAVE CLICKED THE LINK. IM STUPID.

UCLA with the shadiest move I've seen in a while.
If they dont let those kids out of their LOI, then they will have to play for a year then transfer and sit out a year.
Wow. Classy as fuck.

I'm not trashing the kid. Just trying to make people feel better about him not choosing Michigan. Clarks choice actually makes me feel better about the kid. He saw that he probably didn't fit the mentality at Michigan now. He probably works better for a players coach (like Hoke/Mora) moreso than for a guy like Harbaugh. I'm glad he picked UCLA and it actually makes more sense to me now. Harbaugh likely would have chewed that kid up and not gotten the best out of him because he wouldnt have handled it well.

NOTE ON CLARK : Michigan had cooled on him in the last week or so because he was so wishy-washy and kind of giving Michigan the run around a bit according to Rivals. Some on the staff didnt think he was a "Harbaugh type kid"
I am ok with not landing him. Harbaugh will turn a rusty wheel barrow in to an NFL TE so we are in fine shape without him. Especially given we still have Wheatley as a possibility and also Butt and Bunting on the depth chart.
Just an FYI

CAN HE STILL COACH WITH HARBAUGH AT MICHIGAN BECAUSE THAT WOULD BE GREAT. WOULD HE STAY ON IN AD ADMIN CAPACITY BECAUSE HE LOVES MICHIGAN SO MUCH THAT HE WOULD TOTALLY DO THAT BECAUSE GREAT GUY HOKE GREAT GUY GREAT GUY GREAT GUY GOOD WITH THE KIDS LOVES MICHIGAN LOVES KIDS HOKE MICHIGAN.
