Didn't say McGary was the only top 50 player Beilein has gotten, but the fact remains McGary at the time of recruitment was the only one expected to leave early. I'm not saying make the NBA, but to leave early. This isn't an argument on what level Coach B recruits at, but is about me (and many others) prefering him to the snake that is Calipari, who IMO is only better at recruiting, but that comes with shadiness I prefer to avoid given UM's basketball history.
|1 day 14 hours ago||That is complete and utter||
That is complete and utter BS. I like Coach B the way he is. We don't need UM to sell their souls to get a coach who leaves sanctions in his wake just to be an NBA factory. If you look at all of Michigan's NBA guys, only Mitch McGary was expected to be an NBA talent when he was recruited. To me that alone puts Coach B ahead of Coach Cal who snakes his way to 5 star recruits and leaves programs in shambles.

|3 days 16 hours ago||Every recruit has the right to choose||
anywhere they want to go, and I wish no kid any harm even if they do choose a rival, however, why the hell would you choose to go to Ohio State if you grew up rooting for Michigan unless Michigan pissed you off? I get that if your favorite program is a mess you go elsewhere, but I don't get going to a hated rival.

I don't get how, in sports that have officials whose job it is to maintain the rules, teams can get accused of cheating when it's something that was officiated. "Deflategate" is just as much cheating as the Seahawks or MSU mugging receivers down the field is.
Everyone brings up "Spygate" as well, and let me just say that I doubt Belicheck was the first to tape opposing teams' signals. If you're stupid enough to repeat signals in the open, you won't last in the NFL long. This all reeks of Jim Irsay complaining and league wide jealousy. And I'm not even a Pats' fan, for the record.
|3 days 16 hours ago||It's a both/and situation.||
It's a both/and situation. It's having a system that can dictate terms but it's also finding players that fit the system, developing them, and putting them in the right positions to succeed. You can't separate these things. I think the point Ace is making is that great offenses will expose even the best systems if you don't have great personnel.

I don't think the Colts balls were inflated that low to begin with. I've wondered about the elemental effect, but none of the brainless talking heads has mentioned it yet.

There are people who still care what JJ thinks?

So all we need to do is create alternate twitter accounts and start recruiting for Urbz blatantly offering cash as a bribe.
|2 weeks 14 hours ago||Well....||
Since Isaac played two years ago and Drevno coached last year, I'd say they just missed each other.

While the SF meltdown helped us enormously, I think pelople should wait for the shoe to drop before complaining about the other shoe dropping.

I think Brian and I were separated at birth.... As a kid I used to love me some Tuman and I always wondered why they didn't throw to him more.

I hope these guys bring it because I am so fucking tired of Ohio mouth breathers....

The Jungle Book takes place in Bolivia, right? If so, I can understand Bagheera's skepticism since in Bolivia everyone has a rocket arm.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I would like to see this team||
I would like to see this team play more zone, specifically the 1-3-1. Too often it feels like they are trading a high quality yet contested two pointer for an open three when they double out of their man to man. It seems like playing zone well could improve the defense and also share Belein's value of not fouling.
In high school our rivals ran the 1-3-1 all the time and extended it to full court at times. Some people say it would never work as the main defense, but I think it definitely could if executed correctly. Yes, the corner three is left open sometimes and it can lead to layups/dunks, but the turnovers it creates more than make up for it, and Michigan's man defense has been a layup line without the turnovers at times.
With all that said, it's nice to see this team scrap. A win in Columbus puts them back in business.

Hope the kid finishes out his college career strongly. Hopefully Jim can increase the line depth quickly.

Jimmy's next move: locking down Charles Woodson as secondary coach at the "OG."
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Let it go Yost||
You're flat out wrong. The guy who does UFRs even said Countess regressed significantly, likely do to the defense changing from zone schemes to more press man. On top of that the technique regressed substantially. Quit posting flawed logic.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||I'm not going to pile on Manning||
I don't care if he stays or goes, but the DBs we're not better last year than they were the year before. Their technique was flat out awful at times. I am behind him if Jimmy wants him, but to say they were better with no data is disingenuous.

Jim Motherfucking Hackett. That's who.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||I'm with you, but I think||
I'm with you, but I think Jimmy is more of a loud spoken type who also happens to carry a big stick, and while I prefer letting the winning do the talking, after suffering through Dantonio's infant mentality I won't mind that much if we rub it in his face a little bit.

Brian Cook is past due to be offered lucrative writing positions. This blog kicks ass, and he's always been more reliable than many in the mainstream sports media, but he does it while being transparent and without being a total arrogant d-bag. I don't know what I would've done during this search without mgoblog. I probably would still be worried about some NFL team snatching him.
Btw, why would Brian not start an NFL blog instead of this college crap.....?

First off: Fuck Ohio. They know their nice run is just about over. I'm not saying that Michigan is going to win every game (stupid) but Ohio won't dominate the series anymore.
I could care less about 11 warriors. The fact that their threads are obsessing over UM is a good sign for the future.

Sorry Ian, the whole Michigan community has already seen you for the shitworm you are. You can't jump on the bandwagon now.
|5 weeks 7 hours ago||My dad and I have always||
My dad and I have always conversed about Michigan football, and we're both pissed that these NFL hacks have made it seem like outside forces have had to push Harbaugh into the Michigan job. Is it that much of a stretch to think Jimmy has always had high interest in the job? Personally, I think you can get to higher places as a coach at the right college program than you can in the NFL anywhere. Where else is Jimmy going to get his statue unless he wins multiple Super Bowls?

If Jim backs out at the last second for an NFL job, the meltdown on this site is going to be epic.....
I've already spent time convincing people it's happening, so if it doesn't it will be quite the dong punch.....
