|1 week 2 days ago||MSU last year isn't a great||
MSU last year isn't a great example because they actually had a resume that stacked up very well to other contenders (Oregon at home, at OSU and UM, BTCG against Iowa). They may have squeaked by a lot, but if you look purely at win/loss it was impressive.
To the bigger point - yes - conference championships don't always mean a team is one of the top four.

Please supply evidence that Izzo is cheating.
Fact is the talent in midwest outside of Chicago has been really good last few cycles, Izzo is a hall of famer, MSU has a good deal of NBA success the last couple years (Draymond is huge for them), and they go to the tournament every year (and often far). Izzo also works his butt off on the recruiting trail and every commit has had a very logical reason for picking MSU.

He's good...believe he was a pre-season All-American last year. More of a blitzing guy then a run stopper...but they need all the bodies they can get to get to the QB this year.

MSU won at UM and OSU last year. They overcame that mental hurdle - probably doesn't bother them as much.
|15 weeks 2 days ago||MSU would probably just argue||
MSU would probably just argue they should get two more straight games in EL since the first zillion in the series were in AA.
|18 weeks 2 days ago||Well, that's irrelevant. If||
Well, that's irrelevant. If they took the Rose Bowl out of the NY6/Playoffs games and replaced it with the Pizza Pizza Bowl then the Pizza Pizza Bowl would become a "major" bowl. It would have the same quality of teams in it as the Rose Bowl did. Not really sure how this is an arguable point...
I mean, did Alabama not win a "major" bowl last year when they defeated MSU in the Cotton Bowl which was a national playoff semi-final?

It's basically the equivalent of a BCS game. Pretty much everyone considers the NY6 Bowls to be major.

Not sure if sarcastic, but didn't Hoke win one (Sugar) and Dantonio has two (Rose, Cotton)?

Not happening. They just - which controversy - started up construction on the new Detroit PAL headquarters with plans to develop some condos/restaurants on the site.
They are planning on keeping the field itself, but the controversy is the plan to put in articifical turf.
|32 weeks 2 days ago||It's actually fairly common||
It's actually fairly common to have county jails in downtowns (look at Chicago). Many courts are downtown and this makes it much cheaper and more convenient to transport prisoners/families around. Not saying I like it, but it's not a Detroit only issue at all.

I can't find a for sure answer, but just read a quote from Izzo that said he'll help them transfer whereever they want to. If you can prove he put restrictions in then feel free. Otherwise, your point is basically invalid.

Did Izzo restrict where Bess and Clark can transfer?

I give that sacred honor to either Turgeon the Turtle or Kill when he was a Gopher.
|36 weeks 3 days ago||For likely being the top||
For likely being the top prospect this year there have been remarkably few rumblings about his recruitment being dirty. Everything seems to show it's clean and he's a really smart sounding kid. Now there may be an issue that his mom is somewhat of a control freak (there is a thought his Mom wants Kansas and he wants MSU), but nothing at all showing anything dirty.
|36 weeks 3 days ago||There were very strong||
There were very strong rumblings that Jackson was going to commit to Kansas last Thursday night. MSU fans are pretty pessimistic at this point.

For the record, a seemingly connected poster on another UM basketball blog has mentioned there is basically nothing shady at all about Jackson. Actually said it was the cleanest recruitment of a straight up elite talent that he'd seen.

What a terrible story. Sadly, he's also a UofM law school grad.
|38 weeks 4 days ago||Well, this is an incredibly||
Well, this is an incredibly dumb argument because it was only "easy" for MSU since fifth seeded Cincinnati was upset by 12th seeded Harvard.
|43 weeks 3 days ago||MSU is clearly really good||
MSU is clearly really good this year with one Top 50 player while UM has three. Not clear this whole argument Izzo's success is due to cheating.

What did he say about Onwenu?
I do think Hill's recent actions make it seem like UM is in great shape for him.

The opportunity to troll grown men and have them go through emotional roller coasters as a high school kid would be way too good for me to pass up. I'd mess with people so much.

Somebody on Michigan 247 just mentioned Onwenu removed Michigan commit from his Twitter bio. Reason for concern?

I'll just say if I was one of their parents I'd give the staff a call to figure out the status of my son's commitment.

From when he committed...
Following his visit, Weaver told The Michigan Insider, "Coach Jay told me that they are offering me as a big athlete," said Weaver. "They like me at both defensive end and tight end and I may even be both way guy. Coach Harbaugh was more of a conversation about us building a relationship between us two and getting me up to visit asap. He also told me how if I commit and happened to get hurt this season, then they would still fully honor my scholarship."

The fact anybody here is blaming Weaver for one damn second is astonishing.
This isn't what Michigan is supposed to be.
