this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
|12 hours 52 min ago||Absolutely||
I think your question applied after Lloyd retired. If we got a consistent 9+ win team that won our fair share against OSU (and had close losses) and beat Dantonio's MSU 60% of the time and the next HC of MSU 70%+, everybody will be super happy, even without Urban like success.
We have suffered long enough.

The RAC is gross.
|20 hours 23 min ago||Drive to||
A more middle class area and donate there.
|20 hours 25 min ago||This can be the only answer||
Unless you need something specialized, this is the only answer for a pickup.

His Defenses were terrible. There is no question about it. It's not that they were great at Arizona or WVU either, but he had Casteel and assistants who knew the 3-3-5. It's not a good scheme, but can produce acceptable results, however he didn't have the right coaches who knew the system at Michigan and that's on him.
|1 day 17 hours ago||No||
But if he had an interest, I'd be fine with him playing.
|1 day 21 hours ago||Drop the mic||
And watch the next guy fail.
|2 days 15 hours ago||Adrian Petersen||
It took AP the entire season to get his case heard and he won. I don't see how Brady could get his case spead up.
|2 days 21 hours ago||Legally,||
How does carrying/ brandishing a weapon in MI compare to say a DUI? Is it the same level crime and in most cases is the penalty for a 1st time offender basically the same?
|3 days 12 hours ago||It's just an emoji readily available on most phones||
It really has nothing to do with Michigan, but looks like an M and is the symbol for the Greek M.
It's readily available on most phones as an emoji (if you have an iPhone, it's in the last group) and has been taken up by recruits to represent Michigan. It's not official or anything.
|3 days 15 hours ago||Maybe Ross gives||
another crazy amount to the Athletic Department to fund 18K Gold urinals?
|3 days 17 hours ago||Countess||
Would have been nice to have Countess at Nickel and Peppers at WR.
Anyway, on obvious passing downs, we just got a legit deep threat!
|3 days 18 hours ago||I Hope you find out soon...||
The benefit is the value you get for buying the season > individual games. Until we started sucking (for lack of a better word), tickets were much more expensive and hopefully become that way after Harbaugh threatens (and wins) the B1G yearly.
If you take our current home slate, OSU good-ish seats could go for $300+ and MSU for $200+ (and would have until 2007). That's $500 for 2 games. Throw in homecoming (maybe $100) and the rest and it's worth it.
Again, this value proposition goes away when we suck, which is why last year's attendance was so bad (and Brandon resorted to Coke give-a-ways).
|5 days 19 hours ago||Not for EA||
I'd rather have nothing than another crappy college game from EA.
|6 days 7 hours ago||My bad||
What I meant is that nobody seems to care about Cowherd's comments at all. It's not big on Facebook, buzfeed, gawker... And that is sad.
|6 days 7 hours ago||Sad :(||
The fact that Trump get's 10x more attention than Cowherd is sad. Hopefully, Cowherd's next employer will rescind his contract.
|1 week 8 hours ago||Shoulder doesn't matter. He||
Shoulder doesn't matter. He would never have been an NFL QB, so why not get a year at WR before the draft?

I'm pretty one dimensional, but I'll cheer for M basketball.
|1 week 18 hours ago||That's what they said about||
That's what they said about QB play and our man Nuss and QB play/ offense in general.
|1 week 18 hours ago||QB: $2 Robo Henne - At||
QB: $2 Robo Henne - At Michigan, could make any throw and handle pressure. Only downside is that he's not super mobile, but neither is Tom Brady @ $1 more
TB: $3 Morris - Certainly good enough to keep the D honest and wonder on how to stop Henne & Braylon vs. Morris. Also, I don't think Hart is worth $2 more.
WR: $4 Braylon - Again, at Michigan could catch anything and has the connection with Henne
D: $5 Woodson - Shut down corner and can play WR and return Punts. No other choice.
HC: $1 Harbaugh - Why not. He's at least a hard ass and will get the players to work their hardest, which may/ may not have been the case while Henne and Braylon were at Michigan.
|1 week 21 hours ago||Wouldn't the goats eat the grass?||
Wouldn't the goats eat the grass along with the weeds? If not, this sounds like an awesome business opportunity for "organic, natural lawn care"!
|1 week 21 hours ago||I thought Harbaugh was going||
I thought Harbaugh was going to kick him out to get higher 247 composite players?
|1 week 1 day ago||He's not a cheater||
But he's either taking money or is one of the only 5* kids not to be taking money, in which case he would be ...
|1 week 1 day ago||Duke||
Cooled on Mitch.
|1 week 1 day ago||It's fair, but shady||
if the players had to audition to remain on the team.
It's fair, because all scholarships are for 4 years and the players graduated (which is the essence and point of athletic scholarships). However, I'm not so sure that's true as there isn't a scholarship crunch this season.
If a player like Heitzman was say 3rd string, but wanted to be on the team and had a good attitude, why would Harbaugh (or anyone) want the kid gone?
|1 week 1 day ago||“Obviously, Harbaugh coming||
“Obviously, Harbaugh coming in was going to change things at Michigan — do things his way,” said Heitzman, a tight end from Hilliard Davidson. “But I didn’t know if I wanted to try out. That definitely took me off-guard. I was bummed out.”
What does that even mean? Doesn't every player by definition have to audition for the new staff? If your boss left and a new hire (from outside of the company) took over, wouldn't you have to show what you got?
It seems more like the staff was set at TE and didn't see a ton of playing time there for Heitzman and so he left. Good luck and congrats on earning your degree!
|1 week 1 day ago||Apparently,||
this happened at 1:45AM, so...
Just curious, are the non-alum Michigan fans as trashy as the non-alum OSU fans? I have not spent a lot of time in Ohio and don't really know any OSU fans/ alumni.
|1 week 1 day ago||But in a year where Michigan||
But in a year where Michigan has the scholarships available, I don't think it's so much as a question of which 5th years do we want to keep vs. nobody is guaranteed anything and even though you put in 4 years of work, a younger guy will play over you if he's better.
That true meritocracy was not there previously. I think that's why Countess also left. It's not that he wasn't going to start or play a lot, it's that he was offended by having to compete for the starting position after 4 years at Michigan (kind of understandably too).
|1 week 1 day ago||Fantasy draft||
Where would you take Denard in a 12 team fantasy draft? Maybe round 9? Maybe earlier as kickers and D tend to fill up the last few rounds?
|1 week 2 days ago||MGoOhNo||
I agree with you, but you should phrase your argurment in a more positive tone and be less angry.
Also, being compared to Joey Gladstone is a positive thing, I think.
|1 week 2 days ago||Agree||
I used to drive them a few times per week using a car share (like Zipcar) and they were awful. Not fun to drive, under powered, and had weird sight lines. They get great fuel economy and are reliable, but it's not even worth it to buy over a Matrix (or something similar).
|1 week 2 days ago||Are you from the Metro NY area?||
That's where I haven't heard of anybody taking the ACT.
|1 week 3 days ago||Haha||
My wife is worried as well. I did some bad shit until we started sucking. I even missed a few games the past few years.
|1 week 3 days ago||ACT?||
I don't know anybody on NJ that took the ACT. I'm not sure people in NJ even know that there is an alternative college entrance exam.
|1 week 3 days ago||The interesting thing with||
The interesting thing with the uniforms is how they are all different. Adidas had the same uniform design and then changed the colors for each school, while Nike uses a unique design per school.
That alone is a huge plus.
|1 week 3 days ago||Ban?||
Mods, can you ban this kid?
|1 week 5 days ago||The Crabel late hit. That||
The Crabel late hit.
|1 week 5 days ago||Haha||
I kind of agree, but appreciate any analysis done by credible guys like Magnus. This goes double in the off season.
|1 week 5 days ago||D- pick||
That's all I remember about farve is his d-pick.
|1 week 5 days ago||Why don't schools||
Focus more on revenue sharing and less guaranteed cash in these deals. That way, when schools have successful years (like MSU), the school makes more?
|1 week 5 days ago||This is stupid||
The reason attendance was down for students and everyone else is that we were not very good and like it or not gave up as fans.
|2 weeks 15 hours ago||That's back in the 80s||
And how many NC's did Bo win again?
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Some Cable boxes||
Have Netflix streaming as well. I like the roku interface and it's pretty cheap.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Prime Day||
Is marketing garbage. No real deals that were available to all.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Exactly,||
OSU fans should be happy that Michigan upped the stakes forOSU's next deal.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||It's $169 is for 15 years, or||
It's $169 is for 15 years, or $157 (76.8 + 80.2) for 11 years. I don't know who/ how the deal can be extended though.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Agree,||
I used to watch game day and the NFL shows with the occasional sports center, but don't watch any of that anymore. I usually just read the articles and watch segments online from a variety of sources.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||This is how you market!||
Take note Brandon and the MBA professors. This is how you market.
It may or may not be contrived/ planned from the beginning, but the results of Harbaugh's mastery of social media are amazing.
This is how Michigan is the most talked about program in CFB, despite finishing 5-7, with a predicted 8-4 record in 2015. It's also why Nike is putting up the big bucks.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Reverse Spelling Nazis||
This comment is like the Spelling Nazis, but in reverse!
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Don't know,||
but I'm going to the game with a Maryland alum friend and tailgating with them. I have been to one game maybe 4 years ago. It was a pretty fun time (the tailgating is nice and people don't care too much about the outcome of the game).
|2 weeks 2 days ago||I think you give him too much credit||
College revenue blew up during Martin's tenure. All he had to do was somewhat manage expenses and boom, AD profit.
Here's a Bloomburg article on the economic growth in college football (and basketball) revenue (you have to figure out Michigan's portion from the chart).
Overall college football revenue went from $100M in 2000 to $759M in 2011 for the 10 schools in the article. Martin rode the market, good for him, but doesn't make him a financial wizard.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Agree,||
Shane shouldn't be on the Top 5 list yet (maybe after camp?) and Darboh is better than Chesson (at this point).
|2 weeks 2 days ago||You should,||
because Mary Sue Coleman gave Brandon his buyout package and Hoke's buyout is pretty standard. Now, hiring him was a poor decision, but that's not what we are discussing.
My only point is that Bill Martin doesn't deserve credit for righting our finances, because the tide was already rising with all of the stuff I pointed out. It's like a CEO saying, out stock has doubled since 2009 (well yeah, since the S&P has like trippled).
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Not really||
The deficit was due to contract buyouts for Brandon and Hoke (and the rest of the staff). Prior to that, Brandon was always profitable. (Sorry for the freep link, beg away).
|2 weeks 2 days ago||The hiring of RR||
Was a great idea, the handling of his introduction and whole tenure is too great of a failure to overlook. It wasn't just one decision.
Also the "finances in order" is complete BS. I mean you have a 115,000 seat stadium, the winningest program in history, millions in donations from guys like Ross, the BTN, BCS, Adidas making it rain... it doesn't take a financial wizard to make things work.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||They became the dynasty||
By cheating and now use cash strategically. It's just like USC last decade.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Clausen||
Just like jimmy Clausen and his limo in front of the college football HOF.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||It's not nor should it be...||
Wilcher should and is doing what's best for his kids, not his former University.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Very creative. I would||
Very creative. I would posbang you, but iPhone.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||BSU||
Should be BSU. Bro State University.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Op is an idiot||
He's arguing Rutgers is so bad because they beat a terrible Michigan team, which is now a "classic"... on a Michigan blog. Yeah they suck because they beat us. Ummm ok
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Maybe I'm in the minority||
But I really don't care for JUB at all.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Was this the only kicker||
We're recruiting this cycle of is there another kid?
|2 weeks 6 days ago||People think||
that Harbaugh may suggest that some committed recruits look elsewhere. I don't know why they think this, but it's more of a Michigan decision than the recruits.
|3 weeks 12 hours ago||Egos and pressure?||
A girl can hope that egos and pressure make all 3 play sub-par.
I think it makes sense for Braxton to stay at OSU. His NFL career is ikely to be very short and if he can still live nicely in Ohio after that (insurance, car sales...) If he leaves OSU for another school, he will be branded a traitor and get no love from the OSU alums & fans.
|3 weeks 21 hours ago||Correct||
I have common sense so the law was not for me.
|3 weeks 22 hours ago||This is stupid||
JPP is an idiot who blew his finger up doing an illegal activity and now he should be compensated because a picture of his dumb actions was released?
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Denard.||

Favorite one is the dude that married my boss. After marriage she's been much more chill. Good job Jim.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||No specific recs, but...||
1) Smart TVs are nice, but get a chromecast or roku. They do the same thing and you aren't limited by the manufacturer's firmware
2) Decide if you want a receiver. If so, then you only need 1 HDMI input on your TV. Basically, it's a dumb monitor at that point.
3) Even without a receiver, you should have external speakers (soundbar will be a vast improvement)
4) All of the clear motion (and other artificial processing) that I have seen is garbage. Turn it off/ don't buy a TV because of this.
5) Check out the look of the TV in the store, regardless of where you buy. Specifically, if you have a bright room or your TV will be line-of-sight into a glary area, make sure the TV glass is not clear. You want the plasticy look of office computer monitors.
6) Look at Cnet and other sights for reviews. They are usually pretty good.
7) I'd be skeptical of curved TVs, unless your seating is mostly directly in front of the TV.
8) It's unlikely that 4K will be brodcast for a long time. We don't even get 1080P broadcasts yet.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Yeah, like a waitlist,||
but the good thing for the athlete is that it's kind of a signal to other programs that the kid is good enough to at least be in serious consideration at a specific program.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Thanks. I'll check it out.||
In terms of History, I did like Into Africa and The Potato Factory series (which is fiction, but historical).
|3 weeks 1 day ago||I'm pretty open to genre's,||
but like sci-fi, adventure, mystery type books. I do tend to like longer series as I have a ~2 hour/ day commute. I have listened to and really liked (in no real order)
- Game of Thrones
- Ender's Game series
- Gone Girl
- Tomorrow Series
- Star Wars 1-3
- Girl on the Train
- Poirot series (by Agatha Christie)
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Audiobooks?||
Anybody got some good Audiobook suggestions?
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Statue||
We seriously need one. I mean he came from nowhere, got Harbaugh and Nike. Game. Over.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||In before the delete!||
|3 weeks 2 days ago||He's right,||
we have sucked. Anyway, I feel like it's OK for players to trash talk rivals because they actually play in the game and therefore influence its outcome.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Doesn't matter||
If everybody else is in the $3-$4M range, then $10M for michigan is more than enough to cover increases over the next 10 years.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Of course it matters||
Will it make a recruit choose one school over another? Maybe, especially in basketball when kids are engaged by Nike, Adidas... at a young age through AAU sponsorships.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Sources?||
Are there any other than Balas and the rivals board? Who is the originator?
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Agree, but at the same time||
I don't want to keep reliving about how great Michigan was. I already know that and in light of the past 8 years makes me even more depressed about those 8 years.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Just curious||
Who is the author and what is the press democrat? Are these legit?
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Wasn't funny to me||
My guess is that the dude was drunk and not being from Louisiana didn't take the signs seriously.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Yeah||
Unless you are cooking a turkey for a few hours, the bacon has to be partially cooked, otherwise it will be fatty.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Not a fair list||
Because of guys like Deweaver, who was dropped by Harbaugh.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Game. Changer.||
Adidas in America or anyone else in a Chinese factory (that uses child labor, pollutes the world and has profits for communists).
It would be un-American to buy/ support anybody else.
(this only applies if they make factories here).
|4 weeks 18 hours ago||Wait,||
Isn't Dave Brandon at Toys, not Nike? Did one of his marketing guys go to Nike?
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Lloyd?||
Was Lloyd insulted (maybe dissed) by Cowherd multiple times? That's what I read somewhere and so maybe Harbaugh was doing him a solid?

Do you actually know anything about the Indonesian government?
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Christmas.||
And the largest Christmas store in the U.S.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Yahoo sports||
Is actually pretty good for scores and push notifications. Their game tracker is ok, but it's a good score site.

The people with the alternate jerseys when you see them. Just say, "hey, what made you buy that jersey and not the regular one"?
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Yes and no,||
I agree that we don't always have the whole story, but when Alabama is putting 12 kids* on Medical and every other team is 0-2, then the data does the talking.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Awesome||
Since Nike wouldn't change the uniforms and their AAU bagmen would finally funnel is the top basketball players.

He realized they are a hellhole.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Magnus,||
I'm sure you are correct, but his film is very poorly done and his highlight tape is awful.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||They weren't great,||
And being in the Eastern Conference masked that.

eBay blades for whatever system you use (Gillette or Schick, other...).
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Not true for an alcoholic||
I'm sure what you are saying is true for the "average" person, but alcoholics develop a certin tolerance that allows crazy things to happen. People have insane BACs if they have been drinking hard for a long period of time (I'm not saying that's the case here, as I know nothing about Minick).
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Isn't that one in the same?||
It's innocent until proven guilty in any case.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Then you aren't an alcoholic||
Or maybe the same size, but likely an alcoholic.
Before everybody casts stones just remember this stat (not in anyway condoning his drinking and certainly not his awful decision to drive).
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Great,||
now they will sub in the cheaper ingrediants to make up for the higher advertising margins. It's like Stubbs was Brandon'd (but the guys got paid, so good for them!).
|5 weeks 1 day ago||You can't say, without understanding his misses||
The coach may have let him kick in difficult situations (long FG, windy, crazy rain...) because he's so good, so why not.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Of course||
Huger is a word. Here it is in a sentence:
Some people take my classic bro hug to mean I'm a huger, when I'm just a bro.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||No clue||
But presumably, it's the biggest game of that night (in any sport) and is on Fox 1, so any bar should be showing it.

I believe that's Stubenville, OH.

Better WR's than our WR's. With Lewis and Peppers, we could have the top WR duo in the B1G.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||His Youtube video||
from the 2015 NY camp says he won the "11th grade" MVP, so presumably he will be a 2016 guy.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||No||
ND is certainly a quality school, but I think it matters at to which classes he took and his grades in those classes (eg I'm not sure Michigan would accept a C student in basket weaving, but may in Bio or Chem).
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Good point. I agree.||
Good point. I agree.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||I don't see the problem||
if you bet that your team would win or on a random game in which your team isn't playing.

Thanks Magnus! Were all of those guys 4/5* recruits? My random guess is that Mangold, Hawk, Ginn and Boone were.
|6 weeks 20 hours ago||NFL||
My consternation is more about the lack of NFL careers on the list (especially, because aside from the RR years, Michigan has basically had a NFL system in place).
Now, if you compare this to OSU's top 20 recruits and their NFL careers, you may see the same thing. I don't know.
|6 weeks 21 hours ago||Nope||
You don't understand the definition of over signing or are a fan of our rivals. Either way, you are incorrect.
|6 weeks 21 hours ago||Agree||
Woodley has had a great career, but my point is look at all of those high 4 and 5 star guys and how they ended up.
|6 weeks 23 hours ago||NFL careers||
What's surprising to me is the limited NFL success of our 20 best recruits over the past 15 or so years.

I heard the opposite. Reese is recruiting for michigan and ... Who cares.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Depends on who Scott Caulk is||
if he's a "regular" fan/ alumni, it's creepy. If he knows Devin or has had football based interaction with him, then it's OK (maybe as a rival coach, or a camp instructor).
If he's just a "regular" HS coach (not his) or a HS administrator, it's probably OK, but questionable.

The fact that you love the guys effort says it all.

Let's see what star level these kids end up as. The Michigan commit means 3*. If they go to camps and look for other offers, then a 4* is likely. If not, it's 3*

That's my cause. You?

With Adidas it would be the biggest ever and Adidas would want as much press as possible.
|7 weeks 15 hours ago||No, went to the PA camp though||

I wonder what his BAC was and why it took almost 3 weeks to authorize a charge.

Sports fan that is also not an alum? Doesn't make sense. My guess is that the Facebook fans didn't show their school for privacy reasons.

Now OSU fans can argue who better represents the state, Woody or Tressel.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Same applies||
to #ExposureU and #SumerSwarm, right?
It's just a chance for the kids to see another perspective (I think the E11's are heald by some current/ almost current NFL QBs).
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Lots?||
When did lots = 1?
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Any proof?||
No offense to you MW7, but JB has recruited really well (the meme is destroyed, no?) and Harbaugh is Harbaugh. Hell, even Hoke was pulling in top 10 classes.
So, how has Adidas hampered us on the recruiting trail again?
|7 weeks 1 day ago||IBD||
Also, I'm on the toilet as we speak.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||It's a great idea||
Because if the kids from Maryland, VA and WV all go there, the Easton camp can market more to the NY/ Philly metro areas.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Who?||
As a big fan of college football, I have never heard of the Paul Finebaum Show either. I sort of listen to Sports Talk radio, but generally only when something major is going on.
Maybe it's because I'm in the North
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Back to or Back from?||
That board isn't bad at all, but it's strange that a poster there knew so much about Harbaugh since football is like 10% of their content.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||haha||
I was just going to say that, but about all of the services, not just 24/7
|7 weeks 3 days ago||People said the same thing||
People said the same thing about trusting the coaches for RR and Hoke. Many of those guys (especially the RR ones) did not pan out.
I think Ace has the better take, which is that we have 7 months left and the coaches seem to want specific players more than others (and don't give a damn about *'s). I'd also add that the 2* guys will be 3 or 4* in the next 7 months. It's like Kingston Davis. He adds a Florida offer and suddenly looks a lot better. What happens when he lands another big SEC offer? He's a 4*
|7 weeks 3 days ago||The problem with the stats is||
The problem with the stats is that the type of job you take out of school is more important than the school itself. For example, there are plenty of I-bankers from all of these schools that make around $200 starting (my guess as I graduated years ago), while a marketing guy may only make $110. The averages are skewed towards which jobs people choose/ the fields the school focuses on.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||To say that to your boss||
is to have hugh balls, especially when your boss is only in his position because of nepotism.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||I thought||
He went from Easton to York PA.

From what I could tell (and there were plenty of M shirts and therefore MGo readers), there are certain players that the M staff knows about and tries to meet/ evaluate and the other kids they meet/ evaluate performed well in their sub groups. So in theory the coaches see everyone, but in actuality it's the top performers.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Lots of coaches||
I saw of high school and college coaches doing reps. Also, the camp area is huge and they have been doing this particular camp for a while now, so logistics were 1st rate.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Apple Store worker.||
Zach Smith is like an Apple Store worker thinking claiming they are successful because the stock price has risen significantly over the past flew years and now Apple is the largest company in the world.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Wonder if he's||
Going to the camp tomorrow. It's about an hour from Philly. I guess that's a good indicator of his interest.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||Blood test?||
Whatever happened with the results of the blood test?
|7 weeks 6 days ago||1) Sopranos 2) Wire 3) Mad||
3) Mad Men
5) Twin Peaks (although I saw it a long time ago and forgot most of it)
I haven't watched GoT, because I listened to the audio books and didn't feel the need. Also, I didn't really like the 1st episode of breaking bad and didn't watch the rest of it.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||Nice to see High School||
Nice to see High School coaches caring about their kids... oh wait?

|8 weeks 14 hours ago||He looked insane||
when he repeated and acted the "right foot down & throw" comment & motion. I'm so excited!
|8 weeks 19 hours ago||Interesting||
Gardner showed flashes at QB for sure, but our lack of WR play and a bad pass protecting OL, along with his injuries means he has a shot as a backup
|8 weeks 21 hours ago||It's so true||
|8 weeks 1 day ago||Beg away||
No. They failed. It's ok. They played their best and are all very talented, but they failed and that's ok.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||F all of you that made me||
F all of you that made me even notice we were in a championship. I have suffered enough. M never wins big :(

Isn't that crazy? Denard is going into his 3rd NFL season and Witty is going into his 6th in college!
|8 weeks 1 day ago||It doesn't really matter||
The real benefit is that Harbaugh's gets to meet the HS coaches and can establish relationships.

Don't want to start a new thread, but Dave Brandon has been named CEO of Toys R' Us.

Look at your > statements again. That's racist
|8 weeks 3 days ago||Honest question.||
How much dies michigan spend on softball vs Florida? How much on facilities? What about OSU? Again, just a question

But that's a sin to say, so delete.

Story of my and our lives.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||FS1 is on the same package tier||
as ESPN2, ESPNU... for me, so it's not as if a casual sports fan doesn't get the channel (now, they may not watch it...)
|8 weeks 3 days ago||I think it's just more of an insult||
to be on FS1, especially on a Thursday night, at least for the Michigan Traditionalists.

Relatively challenging, shift work, don't have to go to a top school. Get paid well, respected, can live anywhere. It's perfect.

Would you ever get red and silver (not same shade as osu, but close) shoes or other clothing? Similarly anything with Spartan green?

|8 weeks 6 days ago||5 boys + girls + maybe more kids?||
Are you trying to get a show on TLC?
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Agree, but it's different||
for non-white people. Your name is part of your culture and it's fine to have a common Bible name, if that's your background or belief system.
Take a name like Ashish (or any from this list). It's a very common Indian name and due to the sheer number of boys born in India, likely as common as any name in the world. Any of those names are going to be unique in the US, but I don't think any are ridiculous or obnoxious, since they are legitamite names from another culture.
It's why when I initially hear names like LeMichael, I initially think, that's a dumb name that will not be taken seriously, but then I realize that maybe it's from a different culture, just like any of the Indian names on that list.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Good question||
My son has an unusual name, but he's a toddler and everybody at daycare calls him a nickname anyway.
So, I'll give you my experiences with my own unique name (it's so unique that I have only heard of, never met anyone else with my first name). It's an ethnic name, but most people wouldn't be sure about the country of origin.
I definately had issues as a kid growing up. Substitute teachers sometimes wouldn't even attempt to say my name. People had difficulty with it ntil about High School. I think by then, ethnic names were more popular and people actually cared about saying a name correctly instead of trying to give me an "Americanized" version of my name.
Anyway, I don't think I've had any resume trouble or career problems because of my first name. I think it's nice not to be in the Top 20 lists and am happy that people think about being sensitive to others with different names, whose parents were born somehwere else.
I think that's why I wanted my son to have a unique name that hints as to where his grandparents are from, but is relatively easy to say. Nobody in my family has ever been named anything like John, Rob, Dave... and I wanted to keep it that way.
|9 weeks 8 hours ago||Sort of.||
Good analogy, but it's more like which one is cheaper, since it's the lesser of 2 evils. That's what I don't understand with the Nike interns that post their pro-Nike propaganda everywhere.
|9 weeks 8 hours ago||Yes, because this is sweeT. #Swoosh4Life||
|9 weeks 14 hours ago||I saw 10 years $90M||
But it's not publicly disclosed and ESPN has been wrong before.
|9 weeks 15 hours ago||$9 for ND||
UA pays ND about $9 per year. I can't believe that Texas is worth $15.
|9 weeks 20 hours ago||No,||
Nike has always been shady, from using child labor in China to bribes. It's par for the course.
Their stock did drop like 1% after this story went public, so there's that concern from the world.
|9 weeks 21 hours ago||Good||
Hole seemed to believe that michigan would win simply because of our history and tradition.
