...and being a good recruiter are two different things. He's a good talent evaluator, but he has not shown an ability to recruit four/five star talent consistently. Amaker was able to recruit 3 star talent. Even Ellerbe was able to recruit 3 star talent. The difference is that Beilein is a far superior coach.
Beilein is great, but not perfect. And the area where he could use improvement is in recruiting battles for top flight talent. Even if it means getting the basketball team their own chef. I'm good with anything that's between the lines.

I don't see Bielfeldt being a difference maker in getting to the Final Four, much less beating Sparty. But the depth for 10-15 minutes a game would be nice I guess.

Dude from InsideMDSports was predicting UK 20 minutes ago and flipped it to us.

The only difference will be the reason for the tears.

Dude got all these inspirational quotes up there that I'm reading waaaay to much into.
|1 day 9 hours ago||Not me||
I guess I'm knuckled up regardless, but the only balls that me feel good are the hairy ones in my sack.

I guess I'll just get the Jack now.

He could've kept it to himself. We no haz good things on here because some idiots don't deserve them.
|1 day 18 hours ago||I think Harbaugh has surpassed Bo||
Just by the very nature of the 24 hour news cycle, he has the opportunity. Throw in his NFL success and his personality and he has surpassed Bo in at least making sure everyone knows who he is.

Never realized how perfectly positioned it was. Awesome pic all the way around.
|2 days 13 hours ago||Pre-2003 Five Guys||
It was great. I don't know why, but none of the locations seem to be as good as the pre-expansion locations in Arlington and DC. Don't know if they changed their formula (cheapened them) or what, but the burgers don't taste the same to me.
|2 days 18 hours ago||I thought Singletary was not going to be retained||
I didn't think his status was decided until some weeks after JH was hired. Is it possible that he was only around for a short period until they transitioned the recruiting away from the old staff?

...I need to get on his diet. I step on a rock and my BP goes sky high.

Stop it. Just stop it.
|3 days 13 hours ago||When have the Lions been run well?||
When have the Lions been run well as an organization. And I don't mean one good season on the field. I'm not very confident the front office has a real plan besides "take the best player available".
|3 days 14 hours ago||All of those teams, minus the Kings||
Have won their league's championship more recently than the Lions. And the Kings were repeatedly one of the top 5 teams during the Webber/Divac years.
In defense of Cleveland, look at all the rings in that division with Pittsburgh and Baltimore. Plus John Elway and Earnest Byner kept Cleveland from two SB appearances. The Lions were blown out in their only NFC title game appearance and haven't made it past the Wild Card round since.
|3 days 14 hours ago||Don't think David Carr played with HOFers||
at least on offense.
|4 days 5 hours ago||How about the 37 year old guy...||
...who's worried that he burned out his pecker on too much porn in the Fishbowl?
|4 days 5 hours ago||I need to stop watching Netflix and CBC||
I would love to see that commercial.
|4 days 5 hours ago||Real deal?||
They lost David Cobb and they're still not very good with the forward pass. I doubt Minnesota will lose by 28, but this game will be over by the third quarter.
|4 days 5 hours ago||I'm fine with them being favored||
That usually means we have the better team. If Harbaugh can't get them ready to play with enthusiasm unknown to mankind when favored, then there's something wrong with him.
|4 days 14 hours ago||Seems he would be better off in the slot||
He doesn't have elite speed but, as noted, could be a matchup nightmare against LBs and safeties. Those guys don't hang outside the numbers. I would only put him outside in the red zone.
|4 days 14 hours ago||Did the Lions give up their 1st rounder?||
I would never make that bet knowing the Lions are around.
|4 days 16 hours ago||They should||
They should just integrate whatever stories Whitlock's micro-site was going to feature into Grantland. Get the same authors he hired and put it under Grantland. Seems like it would be a good fit.
But honestly, I don't want to read Jemelle Hill ever again. The fact that she turned down Whitlock is a good thing.
|4 days 18 hours ago||I'm pretty sure it's less about creating a divide...||
...and more about trying to capitalize on what he thinks is an untapped resource. Now if he was trying to put together a site that talked about urban (not black) sports history, that's different. Then again, I love to drive through rural areas on Thursday/Friday nights in the Fall for H.S. football coverage. I like sports stories about the people we don't hear about much. You know, real life Al Bundy.
|4 days 18 hours ago||1997 @ Michigan State||
Picking any experience up there is low-hanging fruit. I got lost in EL the night before the game and had only two hours of sleep before I walked over to Munn to tailgate. All I did was see Michigan fans get pelted by beer bottles and thrown into bales of hay. The afternoon concluded at a friend of a friends house that was full of high Sparties.
In an epic conclusion, the house dog barfed up beer that he had been drinking from a plastic red cup.
EDIT: Almost forgot. I didn't even get into the Stadium because the tix we were going to buy from scalpers were not together and we didn't want any friends getting stuck by themselves in the MSU student section.

Pro and college teams use funny math when it comes to zero tolerance. Zero could mean 0, 1, 2, or 3.14159265359
