No just wants to leave an $800K a year job.
|1 day 8 hours ago||He needs one good skill||
I agree with the guy above, a 3pt shot is the last of GRIII's worries. He needs to develop one great to excellent skill to survive in the NBA. Currently he has none. Given his outstanding athleticism, focusing on defense and/or rebounding would be a good place to start.

This might be my favorite mgoblog comment of all time.
|2 days 3 hours ago||Probably right||
You're probably right. Just wondering why break things up if you didn't have to. Just seems odd to me. Just push the spring game back a week or two and then everything will be fine.
|2 days 3 hours ago||I'd disagree||
Anytime you're learning new stuff, its best to keep repeating it and building on it. By having a long break in between, you're going to have to spend a lot of practice three and four reteaching what you did the first two days.
Think about your own spring breaks. It takes a little bit to remember what the hell was going on before you left. And having grown up around teachers, I know that they always complained that the days before a break were a waste because the kids don't remember what you were teaching them when they come back from break.

Maybe we can put a giant noodle outside too, and then fly a plane over IU's campus dragging a banner that says "Suck It Losers #GoBlue #NotRed #LOLOLOL"
|2 days 3 hours ago||Why break it up like that?||
What's the point in breaking up practice like that? Seems like a waste of two days of practice.

Recruiting kids out of Pennsylvania is going to be pretty tough with Franklin there now.
|4 days 9 hours ago||I think recruits will start to question him||
Given the last two years, I think recruits will start to question signing up to play for Cal. The teams have underperformed and I don't know if any of the players have gotten much better. Out of 2013's supposed "best recruiting class ever" only three of the five are projected first rounders, and only one is lottery bound. If you're a one and done player, that's not exactly the results you're looking for.
|1 week 5 hours ago||Oh man, the quotes||
Read the front page after doing this, and the Devin Gardner "quote" from today is priceless:
"Practices is straight-up fast, we git a shitload of reps. This was probably tha fastest practice I've eva been a part of ... I feel like, up in dis biatch, there be a a shitload of juice up in practice. I be aiiight wit dat shit. ... Coach Nuss definitely pushes tempo, make shizzle we git ta tha bizzle fast, git tha calls out, do every last muthafuckin thang you need ta do n' then git tha bizzle hiked. Y'all KNOW dat shit, muthafucka! Dat punk pushin dat all muthafuckin day. It make me wanna hollar playa! And sometimes our laid-back asses just go hurry-up ta git mo' reps."
Nick Saban and Brett Bielema are definitely not a fan of makin shizzle ya git ta tha bizzle fast..
|1 week 2 days ago||OMG!!!||
HE'S GAINED TWO LBS IN TWO WEEKS!! IS HE GOING TO BE 250 BY FALL?? WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?!?
|1 week 3 days ago||Still impressive though||
Say what you will about his motivations, what he's been able to do takes a whole hell of a lot more dedication than most people put into things. He's been grinding on this for a long time, and for one dude has made a good amount of progress. That's what I find impressive. Most people when going up against large entities usually acquiesce.
Side note, Arrogant Bastard beer is delicious.
|1 week 3 days ago||Championship team recruiting||
Good post. The only thing I'd disagree with is Michigan not taking players that can contribute to a championship team. Michigan needs to take any and all players that can contribute to any sort of team. If that means you take some three stars you can coach up instead of swinging and missing on 5-stars do it.
They need to focus on winning their division first, and then they can worry about winning conference championships. Doing anything else is being tone deaf to their own situation. Don't set a goal of being president of the company when you're a mid-level manager. Maybe aim for being head of your department first.
|1 week 3 days ago||Supposedly came from Hoke though||
It sounds dumb as you and many others have suggested (and I would agree), but Harris was apparently told by the coaches that they are only taking one RB in this class. And since he's holding out until signing day to make a decision now, if Michigan wants Harris, they either have to tell him something different about their RB situation, or wait for an all or nothing situation with him.
I don't think they can afford to wait. You absolutely need one RB in this class. At least. So if Weber or someone else good wants to commit, then you have to take that commitment and hope you can convince Harris to be part of a two RB class.
The whole just clarifies what an absolute fuck up the last six months of recruiting have been for Michigan.
|1 week 3 days ago||That's what I'm wondering||
That's what I'm wondering too. How does Title IX factor into something like this? The only thing I can figure is that maybe it has something to do with this part:
(3) subjecting any person to separate or different rules of behavior, sanctions, or treatment, including rules pertaining to appearance;
If Gibbons got different treatment and punishment because he was a football player, then you do have a Title IX argument.
|1 week 3 days ago||Doubtful||
Given the way the NCAA punishes people (like Penn State and Miami) it would be the current staff. And since Gibbons played three of his four years under Hoke, if (big IF here by the way) they find evidence that there was some sort of discouragement it very well could have come from the Hoke era football dept. But again, big, big IF there.
|1 week 3 days ago||Its Doug Smith (Washtenaw Watch Dog)||
Doug Smith is out for blood. Both of the complaints that the feds are investigating were made by him. Gotta give the dude some credit. He's gone full V for vendetta on Michigan here. Kudos for having the balls to go up against a massive instituion.
|1 week 3 days ago||Maybe?||
Depends on what they find. They are basically looking into whether or not Michigan properly responded to the original allegation and why the hell it took four years to do something about it. If they find that Michigan didn't respond in a timely fashion, and then can find evidence that the reason they didn't was because of pressure from the football program, then things could be very, very bad.
But, that's a lot of ifs.
|1 week 3 days ago||Title IX||
Looks like it has to do with Title IX. Not really sure how that factors into something like this, but there was a Title IX complaint that prompted the feds looking into things.
Jim Bradshaw, a spokesman for the U.S. Department of Education, confirmed Tuesday morning that the Office for Civil Rights is investigating a Title IX complaint involving U-M.

|1 week 3 days ago||It's been six long months||
Its been six long months since Michigan got a 2014 or 2015 commitment (2016 OL Swenson committed 11/25). That's an eternity in recruiting. And the lack of a backup plan to either Hand or McDowell (two very hard to read recruits) was just naive by the staff.
Supposedly they've told Damien Harris that they are taking only one back in this class, and since he's not announcing until signing day, it could be another all or nothing year at a crucial position.
|1 week 5 days ago||No camping until its sponsored||
Camping out will not be allowed until it is sponsored. Your "Cabela's Pregame Campout, brought to you by Kingsford Charcoal."
Only then will you be allowed to campout ahead of time.
|1 week 5 days ago||No kidding||
I remember getting up for those noon football games was a serious chore some weekends. Especially after a late Friday night. If I had to wake up at nine or hell, even 10 to go stand in a line for a couple of hours, I'd say fuck that. BBQ on the deck with some beers and College Gameday sounds like a much better alternative.
|1 week 5 days ago||Um....sports?||
Never been to a meeting or anything, but I would imagine a group dedicated to watching basketball probably spends a fair amount of time at their meeting talking about the team. Which to my old, married, kid-raising, job-having ass sounds like a pretty solid way to spend an hour a week.
And frankly, its smart that a group of fans has taken the time to organize themselves. By doing so, they create an advantage of numbers; they can create a plan of action and ensure they get the majority of the best seats.
Strength in numbers is smart. Maybe dickish, but smart.
|1 week 5 days ago||Procedure is clear||
The procedure is clear, but when you have an arbitrary time to line up (like 7) and you and a bunch of other people get there at say 6:30 waiting in some sort of line to get in the official line, you're going to have problems. And there's no good way around it without someone getting screwed.
Its very similar to waiting for a bus or subway at a crowded stop. There's no official line until the bus/train shows up. And then its a mad scramble. You basically have to guess where the line is going to be and hope you're right.
|1 week 5 days ago||No good way to lineup for arbitrary line up times||
You're never going to get around situations like this. If you tell people to line up at 7am, you're going to have a group of people there's ahead of time (in a line) waiting to get in line. Then when it's officially time to line up, you're going to have a bullrush situation. You probably need to institute your own line up/armband situation.
|1 week 6 days ago||Greg Robinson||
Greg Robinson from Auburn ran a 4.92 at 322 lbs and Trai Turner from LSU ran a 4.93. Robinson will most likely be the top OT taken.
|1 week 6 days ago||Doubtful||
If Michigan fails next season it will most likely be because the offense couldn't get it together. So it would be odd to promote the OC to head coach. If you're going to go through the trouble of firing your head coach, its best to go with the clean slate and can everyone.
|1 week 6 days ago||Pretty realistic, but...||
8-5 or 9-4 is pretty realistic for next season. 8-4 means that we missed a bowl game somehow. So yeah, I'd probably complain about that.

|2 weeks 2 days ago||Its hard to be worse||
Considering they were one of the worst OLs in all of CFB, there's really no where to go but up. But in all likelihood, they will simply go from being abysmal to just bad.
