I no longer useFirst Row because they require you to disable Ad Block , and the transmissions are horrible without Ad Block.
I live in Europe so need to stream everything.
ESPN player is good for many Michigan games on espn or ABC, and some basketball as well.
For free streaming with Ad Block I use Wiziwig and feed2all (football and basketball)
I cannot get BTN to Go here but you can if you wish to pay for it.

Pitino says that he accepted the job but then was talked out of it by his wife. This came out when we played him in the champioship game of 2013.

But I don't think Hackett is the type to just fire someone because they were hired by his predecessor... or was best man at his wedding...

Nicely done as always Seth... and what a bonus to hear Lombardi describe the classic Packer sweep.

Offering this kid was a no brainer. Hopefully we can get him back when Harbaugh is signed.

Sending you powerful healing energy from the Magic island of Ibiza.
You are truly an Ace... and a warrior (ntw)... will miss your great writing... but not for long as you will be back on the beat soon.

Thanks for the effort. Of course it would be more accurate to compare the results of the third year against the recruits of the first year as pointed out by The Integral in #4 above. Since you are tracking player development, you could use the recruitng classes from the previous coach for the first 2 - 3 years. Thus Harbaugh's onfield results for 2007 would be compared against his predecessor's 2004 recruiting class (as noted by ShadowStorm 33).
Also, and very significant, is that using class ratings is a distortion, whereas average stars is a much more accurate (albiet imperfect) measure.

Great stuff... really appreciate the effort and looking forward to part 2.

The Much Maligned Manny Diaz re-surfaced as DC for La tech this year. Last year their defense was 114 on S&P and 96 on FEI. This year with Manny coming in they were #28 and #33 respectively. These are Mattison circa 2010 numbers... maybe even better. So Brian's suggestion that Manny's implosion at Texas might have been a reflection of the overall collapse holds water... and that gives some cred to Mullen's ability to choose staff.

I would guess that Singletary is still the main contact point for recruits as he would not fall under the description of on-field assistant. He is more part of the administration and is recruiting coordinator.

The answer to the 2105 QB problem is a grad transfer. Hopefully there is a Russel Wilson clone out there somewhere...
2016 will be fine with Malzone as a RS Freshman.

Almost all of these guys will be back next year so the tapes are a great preview of what Harbaugh will have to work with.
Love watching individuals... like how Cole handles Bosa (or not).

He was mentioned and analyzed in a previous cc posting or diary. Age and lack of big time experience were noted.

Zero chance with Cardale at the helm. If Barrett were OK they had a good case.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Reply to #35||
What makes you think the majority of this board did not like RR? I would guess that it leans about 70 -30 in favor of the opinion that had he been supported fully by the fan base he would have been a consistent winner here. Was not meant to be but damn... he was the best coach avialable and would have brought us into the 21st century.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||3 Man Rush!||
Agreed that 3 man rush for the whole drive at the end of the half was the end for me. As Ace would say: Greg or Gerg? Total GERG!
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Nicely done||
Thank you for the post... many mutal feelings.
Question: why the user name? Every time I see it I cringe at the thought of that guy being anywhere near the Michigan coaching job.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Dallas Crawford Yes - Watkins never||
Crawford was Watkins' QB and best friend. They visited UM twice together, Watkins hated the cold and was never coming to Michigan. Crawford loved UM and was a solid commit as a CB until 'The Process'. He decomitted and played at Miami (ytm).
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Grad Transfer QB ... Puleeze!||
I have been asking around about a grad transfer QB for next year Because we REALLY need one. So far no candidates but I am hoping that Brian is searching his connections to make a post about it soon...
|4 weeks 1 day ago||It's only his 3rd year at Arizona||
OK - four years after he was fired here, but only three years to rebuild at AU... with new systems on both offense (Spread & Shred) AND defense (3-3-5)
FWIW: We are likely a consistent 10 win team by now if he was allowed to stay and hire a top DC.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Great Stuff||
Thanks Seth. You bring back the memories of when we had the smartest offensive mind on our side of the field. Water under the bridge but still frustrating to remember what might have been... but hope springs eternal as we await the 'Hello JH!' post.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||QB Grad Transfer||
The big missing piece for next year is at QB. I am waiting for Brian to come up with a post that digs up some possible grad transfers from around the country. Malzone will be fine in 2016, but we need someone for next year if we are to take advantage of the returning talent mentioned by the OP. Fortunately Harbaugh is a masterful QB coach so whomever we get will have a great mentor.
|5 weeks 10 hours ago||Yes!||
What is the hold up offering Perry? He REALLY want to come to Michigan; not like the guys who are looking around and dragging their feet... and the kid can Play!

Hoke should have kept OL coach Greg Fry. He even has the 2 stars at Indiana performing well.

Great work and insight Seth (as always). Thank you!

Justin Fargas was the #1 running back in the 1998 class, and David Terrell the #1 WR.

Reply to #3:
Does that 150 point minimum SAT score difference apply to scholarship athletes? I'm pretty sure that a high percentage of our football and basketball players got in with the very low bar NCAA standard for SATs.
