Mount St. Mary's hired a private equity CEO to be their president. You'll never guess what happened next.

We will never be a consistently elite team until we start engaging in the same shady recruiting tactics that every other big time program does. We were 15 years ahead of the curve in that one. I'm not making a case for moving the needle one way or the other, but it's just the reality.

Mike Greenbergs comment about SOTS being the reason players have egos was one of the stupidest rants I've ever heard. Yeah, it's all about Harbaughs celebratory event. It has nothing to do with schools offering kids 200k to play there, or ESPN going nuts over hat ceremonies, and creating a whole media circus around signing day, or their own high school all star game...or their year-round recruiting coverage. I would have loved to see him engage Jarbaugh in that convo on air.

I wonder if when JH asked Jeter to come to signing of the Stars, having Jim write this article was s counter offer. Mutually beneficial all around, and great to see the team support.

I'm excited for the day when Michigan and Stanford play a game on the field. That has potential to be quite epic.

How does this compare to star ratings for the non-Super Bowl teams? Do the Panthers/Broncos have a higher % of 5 star starters than the Browns/Lions? That's what I'd be interested in.

if you get into Michigan as a student 1st semester senior year, and then get failing grades in 2nd semester just because you think you made it already, the university will pull your acceptance. My mom was an academic advisor at mich and she spent my whole senior year warning me about that. I guess that's why the Swenson thing isn't such a big deal to me.

So when Harbaugh says someone is playing at an NFL level, he's not just blowing smoke up someone's arse? It's almost like this guy knows what he's talking about.

Knowing Carrs sensitivity to fairness I feel like hed probably be extra harsh on Michigan just to show everyone he's unbiased.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||In terms of what is actually||
In terms of what is actually near a student. The food on USCs campus is way more limited, and the food within walking distance is mostly crap. If you're an undergrad, how often are you going to bev hills to eat? In Ann Arbor the food that you can get in direct vicinity of the campus (aka places where a student would go on a regular basis) is substantially better than USC. It's not even close.

Do you have a similar chart for tweeting at recruits parents? I'm not good at making sane decisions without snarky charts.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Normally I'm against tweeting||
Normally I'm against tweeting at recruits and their moms. But having gone to grad school at USC, this drives me nuts. First; USC is a decent campus at best, In one of the worst neighborhoods in LA. Second, find me someone who has something nice to say about LA other than the weather. Third, the USC alumni network is limited to California. Fourth, if Gary really does love food as much as he says, The options that are actually accessible to students are way better in Ann Arbor. Lastly, they have a new coach that is a mostly unknown. Ugh. I hate USC.

Athletic departments are just corporations, with the executive pay gap widening while everyone else (read: unpaid student athletes) get screwed.

It's great that the team that took the trip as a vacation to Florida was the team from...Florida.

If he is the primary one to work with chesson and darboh, keep that manor staff...

His main crime was hiring and retaining lombardi as an OC...reminds me of Hoke and RichRod. I'd say give him one more year. The team has been on an upswing and player seem to like him.

It's almost like Alvarez wants wisconsin to be mediocre.

Easier question to answer is how many hours I spent a week not on Mgoblog. 7?

I had high hopes on us landing the top TE in the country, but I guess it's Nauta gonna happen....

Quite possible if Josh Garnett had to go through 3 years of Hoke he wouldn't have been an All-American, unfortunatley. I'm happy to see him have that success. Always seemed liked a good kid.

What is Ryan Glasgows status for the game? That's the key for me.

Can't wait to see him start in 2020!!!

I could see Urban taking a run at Pruitt (with no inside info here, just seems like it could be a fit).

The question isn't if Durkin leaves. It's whether that happens this year or next year. No way Mattison gets re-upped to DC. I wonder if he'd promote Zordich or Jackson.

Yes you could even say that the sun has set on Flood and Hermanns tenure...

I'm just happy Michigan took care of their coaching issues last year instead of giving Hoke one more year...
|11 weeks 5 days ago||I'm near the point of just||
I'm near the point of just believing that the big ten doesn't like Harbaughs sideline antics, and he's being penalized as a result of his berating the officials after every call, even though he's right at least half the time. The probability of the refs tilting so heavily against Michigan in every game seems well beyond chance when compared to what gets called against other teams.

Yeah, Herman was terrible when he was OC at OSU...
|12 weeks 6 days ago||This is a great article!||
This is a great article! Thanks for sharing. That Beilien thought that Spike could get him fired makes me think that, at the moment, Beilien was really expecting Burke to go pro.
Spike wins the "Zack Novak" award for sure. One of the most enjoyable players to watch on the court.

Good for him. I wish he had a year of Harbaugh...

Reading the UFRs, Harbaugh's redshirting strategy is coming into focus. He'll burn your redshirt this year if you're going to be needed next year.
Losing Glasgow: Get Newsome's feet wet so he can fill in at left tackle
It's almost like he's being intentional in building a team...it's going to be fun watching how these guys have developed next year.
