"He's a hard worker, and he watched me and Tim (Hardaway Jr.) and Nik (Stauksas) put work in to become (first-round picks), and I'm just happy he's getting better," Burke said. "It's great for the program, too. It shows what type of program the University of Michigan is and the direction it continues to go in."

4 and 5*'s are often awarded after a kid has been offered by a big time program. The scouts themselves have no clue. They rely on guys like Saban, Meyer... To offer kids and then re-rank guys based on that (although they never say this).
|4 days 17 hours ago||That's dumb.||
a kid with offers from Alabama, USC, LSU, Ohio, PSU, Florida, Georgia, etc. would never be anything but a 4 or 5* kid (final rankings). Even if the sites thought the kid were a 2 or maybe a 3* kid, with offers like that, he'd be bumped to 4 or 5*s.
|4 days 17 hours ago||No.||
If journalists were actually good at predicting talent, they would be scouts, coaches, or something better than bottom feeders for scout/ rivals/ 247/ espn.
They have no clue and manufacture stories for page views (which apparently we love to give them).
This also explains the sudden bumps kids get when they are offered by big name programs and the ranking sites use offers to base stars on, so that at the end of the day, they look like they have a clue.

We shouldn't even have an electronic scoreboard. Where has the tradition gone?
|5 days 17 hours ago||Meh...||
all this shows is that Meyer doesn't have any class and attracts similarly minded players (we already know how their fanbase is).

Make good bank on airbnb and for charging for parking/ tailgating space. either that or students live there. Why would the complain?

The For-profit Press is essentially a patent troll

this is huge for his PR/ endorsement machine. Hometwon hero returning home. His only other option would have been to stay with the Heat, but then they would have had to dump Wade.
It's LeBron's best PR and best chance of winning again (Irving and Wiggins).

On sat :( World Cup on Sunday :)
|1 week 5 days ago||Great point||
I think you are correct. The number of scholarships and then the number of non graduating non revenue sport athletes is likely so low that it doesn't add much cost, especially on an incremental basis.
|1 week 5 days ago||I think money is a big deal,||
I'm not sure if Brian's point that any idiot would have gotten the same money since the B1G and expansion was a league issue is correct (it may be).
Cancelling the ND game was not his idea, but I generally liked the idea of the Jerryworld game (before I realized we were terrible that year). I also like the diverse scheduling, even with RU and MD.
Since we have to compete in non-revenue sports, I like that we have nice facilities and generally competitive teams and I think the athletic campus is amazing.
|1 week 5 days ago||fair point,||
as I studied way too much. However, my point is that when the team is bad, there are other things to do (not necessairly pre-game), but watch on TV, hang with friends, or study. When the team is generally assured to win against good competition, the trend is make games a top priority.
If you disagree, just look at Basketball attendance from the mid-90s until like 2010.
|1 week 5 days ago||Great idea||
But I don't know how you could only do this for football and mens basketball. If colleges do this for all sports it would be too costly for most schools.
|1 week 5 days ago||I'll address your gripes. 1)||
I'll address your gripes.
1) Non-revenue sports are important at Universities. Just ask any non D1 school. They bring in smart kids on scholarship and are in the true spirit of college sports. That said, I don't watch them either, but legally, Michigan has to comply with Title 9.
2) What do you want him to say? He's smart for not responding to your emails. You would immediately post them on MGo. Legally, he needs to give a PR response. It's common sense.
3) Students would rather party than see Michigan play shitty teams and (very sadly) maybe even lose to these teams. We are not the powerhouse we were. When students can be assured that Michigan will beat a decent team >75% of the time, then they will come to games and enjoy them. That's sadly not the case.
|1 week 5 days ago||He's a good 3-4 years||
from being a starter at Michigan, so that can be corrected for sure. Finally, some damn depth at QB!
|1 week 5 days ago||I'm a huge Brandon supporter||
so I guess I'm not a cool kid on MGo.
1) Revenue up is a big deal - hiring Nuss, paying the b-ball coaches, and new facilities are all significant factors in Michigan being where we are today
2) Scheduling is decided years in advance, so we can't blame him
3) RU and MD are solid adds IMO. Both are respectable schools (certainly better than Indiana or Iowa) and bring in an expanding marketplace (huge B1G alumni in both cities). Also, it's join an expanded conference or die. Even ND is basically alligned with the Big East
4) People are only angry because the football team sucks. That's not Brandon's fault. Hoke needs another year or 2 before he should be fired.

means after Lebron left Cleveland the fans treated him like shit. Some of this is to be expected but 1) they were over the top, and 2) most anybody in Ohio would leave to make a ton of money in South Beach and play with 2 All Stars.

Mods? Huge problem with app.

After Tate won, no. ND is not any form of a bell weather. Game.

On the us team?
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Not to sound like a cheesy business book,||
but a person doesn't have to be Ray Lewis to be a true leader. Introverted people by that definition, cannot be leaders, which is not ture. As long as Gardner is working his ass off an other players see this, he will be fine.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I don't know,||
when I was a young kid in the B-School, if the Dean ever happened to be around (dude never spoke to me), I would be a little nervouse. I mean boss' boss and all.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I don't think nobody cares,||
I think Michigan fans bring up the fact that we beat Tebow in the Cap1 Bowl, the same year we lost to ASU as an example of:
1) Beating Urban, even when he had Tebow
2) Lol @ SEC>B1G
Also, that Stanford game (and the fact that Lane Kiffen is an awful coach) is why Stanford > USC is the case today. And I think from a betting line perspective, that was a bigger upset.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I'm impressed with ASU's history||
But we will murder them. They are nowhere near as good as 2007 and if anybody thinks current Michigan players won't be motivated, you must believe no players watch ESPN or read anything sports related in the internet. I'm pretty sure Brandon, Lloyd, and Fred Jackson will also remind the team.

And gave up 2. So 17 "shots". The Belgium dude had 4 and gave up 1, so 5 "shots".

Proves he can recruit and win. Tebow, Gonzalez, pouncey and the juniors and seniors were Zook kids.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||No.||
No, I expected Hoke to go out aggressive. What do you tell the team? Bama is awesome, you are not and please lose by a few? KThanksBye.
Why can't we be aggressive and try for a win?
The US is playing for a 1 or 2 nothing loss. That's just sad and un-Amercian. This is why scooer is not even remotely popular. We are all praying for a 1-0 loss. WTF?
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Play like a B,||
lose like a B. Game. Over.
This is what's wrong with soccer and why Americans don't like the sport. We play without balls and advance!
