I'm the boss of the apple sauce at Sunnyvale Trailer Park. 16.5K a year, a double-wide trailer, and my very own omgshirtless personal assistant. I drive around all day in a convertible getting hammered and using walkie talkies.
That's ballin. Nothin' but net.

Well, shit. This stinks for Canada and for anyone who watches the Olympics to see the best athletes on earth in their respective sports. Stamkos is, in my opinion, probably the second best hockey player on the planet and easily the best goal scorer of the modern era.

Rees has proven to be a capable QB when he has time to throw but is mistake-prone when under pressure. I have to think Mattison's strategy is going to be very heavy on blitzing, no? I think if we can make Rees uncomfortable in the pocket then ND will have a hell of a time winning this game.
Conversely, Gardner is also prone to huge mistakes but is an elite scrambler. ND has an amazing d-line but Gardner is a stellar improsiver and is at his best when he's forced out of the pocket. In that regard, he is significantly better than Denard, who would drive you crazy by refusing to take off when he had the chance.
This is the most confident I've felt going into a ND game in a while. I just have a feeling that we're going to match up very well.

Dude, he is a college basketball coach in charge of coaching student athletes. You can't throw a basketball at a player's head - not even once. That shit is unacceptable and when taken in the context of the rest of the footage paints a pretty shitty picture of what kind of coach and person he is.
|1 year 3 weeks ago||I agree for the most part,||
I agree for the most part, but RR did, in fact, go after high-end talent, he just didn't land it very often. If I recall correctly, had he stayed at Michigan, we were set to land Dee Hart, Sammy Watkins, and Kris Frost for 2011....all 5 star players. Have we ever landed three 5 stars on rivals in one class?
|1 year 4 weeks ago||Coach Brown,You need to up||
You need to up your professional demeaner if you want to be taken more seriously. As elaydin wrote above, your UM slant is too easily visible and it makes it very difficult to read your information sometimes.
You have done a good job of getting information and establishing relationships; just remember that such privilege comes with responsibility, and I think that is what is making some people on this site nervous.
Most of the time, your updates and writing style are far too presumptious. If you look at TomVH, although adequate, he isn't exactly Ernest Hemingway when it comes to writing ability. However, Tom very obviously has a professional code and he sticks to it. It's much of what makes him successful and a big reason why recruits trust him, year after year. If you want to avoid problems down the road and want to be taken more seriously, then you need to do the same.
I'm not trying to be a dick about it, but obviously you're trying to make a go at the recruiting business so hopefully you can take some of the criticism you receive from mgobloggers and use it to become better at it.
|1 year 6 weeks ago||Gardner's ceiling is||
Gardner's ceiling is ridiculous. He is a gamer and if he makes even moderate progress over the next two years, will be an absolute terror for B1G defences. Outside of maybe landing Hand, this news is far bigger than any Hello post we could have gotten.

Stay away from that list. Trust me.
|1 year 10 weeks ago||Very exciting to think about||
Very exciting to think about our level of recruiting right now, but some people are being overly optimistic about the time it will take for the 12 and 13 classes to have an impact. Sure, Derrick Green will probably contribute early, along with a few others, but the quality of your team is made up mostly of juniors and seniors i.e. your classes from 3, 4 and 5 years ago. When you look at it from that angle, it will still be a few seasons before our roster is actually comprised of the top-end talent we have become accustomed to bringing in the last two classes.
If you look at our 2010 class, it's pretty weak. It had six 4-stars, of which the highest rated two aren't even with the team (Christian, Dorsey). Now we got Ryan and Gardner as stars, but for a class signed four years ago, it's short on stars and even meaningful contributors.
So I love following this stuff, it's a lot of fun, and there is more than a good chance that the 12 and 13 classes will allow Michigan to pull away, along with OSU, from the rest of the big ten. I'm just saying, don't expect to happen any time soon.
|1 year 12 weeks ago||My girlfriend wanted to come||
My girlfriend wanted to come over and do dirty things this afternoon and I told her I was swamped with case studies and other non-existent tasks. Obviously, I wanted to be here at 4:00 to either celebrate wildly or emotionally implode with my internet friends upon hearing the decision of an 18 year old.
Sometimes I hate myself.
|1 year 12 weeks ago||Great list, thanks for||
Great list, thanks for putting it together. Since I assume this is a primer for the Derrick Green announcment, I think it would be beneficial to narrow the focus to backs who were similarly ranked to Green. If you look at Rivals from 2003-2010 and check out the backs who were ranked in the top 10 overall players in the nation, as Green is, you will see that the odds are in favor of Green having a nice, if not excellent, career.
2003 - Reggie Bush
2004 - Adrian Peterson
2005 - Jonathon Stewart
2006 - Beanie Wells
2007 - Joe McKnight
2008 - Darrel Scott
2009 - Bryce Brown, Trent Richardson
2010 - Marcus Lattimore

|1 year 20 weeks ago||That behavior is unacceptable||
That behavior is unacceptable coming from a professional who is being paid to do a job. He should have to return his pay for the week of that game for voiding the terms of his contract. Luckily, the lions don't even need him, as Broyles looks like the better player and better person going forward.
|1 year 21 weeks ago||Our best chance to win is to||
Our best chance to win is to have Devin at QB and Denard sharing the backfield as an RB/Slot. If he is able to throw then it's an added bonus, maybe he can catch them by surprise a few times.
I hope he gets to throw a few passes but I find it verrrrrrry hard to argue against the fact that Gardner gives us the best chance to win at QB.

Everytime these updated lists come out and I see guys moving up or down 5 or 6 spots it reminds me how utterly fucking worthless following the lists can be. Here is how I look at it:
Top 20: Unbelievable Talent
Top 100: Sweet
Top 250/300: Still pretty sweet
Below top 250/300: Lower chance of success but who the hell knows?
Aside from that, I just can't get myself to care about who is ranked #35 and who is ranked #90.
