I've looked at it multiple times and don't see any blue or black. Just white and gold. I feel like people saying it's black and blue are in on a joke I'm not.

There's probably a reasonable compensation clause in his jags contract for a subsequent position to avoid that situation. Michigan is probably paying him the minimum amount it can while still considered reasonable.

Dont forget, urban fired the first shot when he said he keeps score on everything vs osu's rivals referring to him "winning" weber from us. You think Harbaugh was just gonna sit back and take that?
|4 weeks 2 days ago||We don't have know exactly||
We don't have know exactly how many spots we have left but if Iman Marshall wants to commit and we are full, you take him and figure it out later. Probably means a previous walk-on doesn't get a scholly this year.. But you just don't pass on Marshall.

Not to be spoiled sport because Lightning Bolt M does sound awesome, it''s actually a line graph meant to show a stock price rising and falling. Sorry!

With so many newbies on here, maybe some don't know aquaman is steve.

Plus we have a tiny recruiting class that was filling up fast with out-of-state talent prior to the actual season. Then this season happened.

Comparing Harbaugh and Meyer in their first year of recruiting is apples and oranges for so many reasons, it's ridiculous. The Harbaugh and Franklin comparison is more apples to apples but obviously helps that Franklin was coming over and recruiting all year from another university, and one that recruits similar athletes as PSU. The last thing Harbaugh was worried about until about a month ago was college football recruiting.

My guess is with remaining 6-7 spots, we get: perry, jefferson (based on his recent twitter activity), wheatley and two mac-level guys (maybe oliver, josh holloman or wesley french) and we bank a scholly or two for 2016 or transfers.
I think we miss out on weber and clark. With our needs now in the defensive backfield, maybe we should take a second look at flipping dior johnson (minny) or tyrone miller (kansas).

Also, based on his latest tweet, which was a retweet from a friend, it sounds like he grew up with and is friends with Grant Perry. Explains liking the #Amaizing thing and maybe he was the reason for the second #Amaizing thing. Wouldn't be the strangest situation if he and Perry came in together and effectively took away Burnett's spot. Just speculation.

I think he was comparing Harbaugh's rushed 2015 class to Hoke's rushed 2011 class.

Why would you say it's malzone's teammate? Pretty sure he wasnt the wr who was just offered.

Two airballs to end the first half. Seems about right. Not unhappy with score though. We need MAAR to come strong in 2nd.

Come on, we're better than that.

Need to keep it close at half and have MAAR with 3 fouls to give for 2nd half.

That's what we need Irvin. Meaning penetration.
Edit: For a "shooter," Irvin sure has an ugly foul shot.

We need Bielfeldt in to contain Dawson.

Ugh, as much as I hate to say, that was a foul on MAAR.

Dakich looks smoothe and confident bringing the ball up. All we can ask from him. Beilein uber alles!
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Hmmmmm....seems familiar...||
|4 weeks 5 days ago||I wouldn't put that much||
I wouldn't put that much stock in it. As of now we have 6 slots (probably more like 8) to fill by Wednesday and all of the more high profile guys on our board are still up in the air. The closest "lock" we have is Ty Jr. and we really have no idea what he's going to do.
I just don't think the coaches are going to go out of their way to "bank" scholarships for next year when they could have an extra year with an under-the-radar guy they think they can develop. And I trust that this coaching staff will get the best out of each player who has the basic talent requirements to play in the B1G.
Plus it helps that Oliver goes to the same school as Weber. I wouldn't be surprised to see a couple more offers go out to MAC guys over the next few days.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Based on the Depth Chart by||
Based on the Depth Chart by Class, we have 14 scholarships available (if Glasgow and Kerridge are scholly players) for 2016, not 26. That's in 2017 (as of now).

I was at first taken aback by this and my first thought was that the kid was flat-out lying for the nebraska coaches to negatively recruit against michigan, who are obviously coming for their recruits.
But the more I settled down and thought about it, im guessing mattison did say something that was taken out of context and it actually is a solid recruiting approach for coaches to remind recruits how great an educational opportunity michigan is as compared to, say, nebraska, which is much less hard to get into for the non-athlete. A simple fact that may have not been taken the right way.
In any case, for those saying harbaugh needs to publicly get out in front of this, i disagree. It is going to blow over as people realize that this was just an overreaction by the neal family to a fact, and if anything it will spur the conversation of the michigan advantage over schools like nebraska, msu, osu, etc. Also, the coaches will address the issue with other players they are recruiting (such as snyder) and hopefully a few of them will come to mattison's defense. Not that its necessary.

Yeah he didnt tweet that..at least not the part about coming in on a sleigh.

Urban also had the tire fire of all tire fires at PSU in 2012 to poach some 4-5 stars who just wanted to GTFO of Happy Valley. Noah Spence comes to mind, but there were others. Perfect situation for him as PSU to OSU is a pretty easy to sell in that situation.

Also 247 lists Pickard as a WDE and Neal as a SDE. Maybe Pickard's the only one of those we are actively recruiting.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||If that quote is accurate from Pickard's side, it||
If that quote is accurate from Pickard's side, it has to be that he is misunderstanding something or misquoting the coaches. We, in fact, have offered (or re-confirmed offers) other DE recruits. Shelton Johnson, KLS and Reuben Jones come to mind off the top of my head.

We are apparently also bringing in an Eagles personnel guy named Joe Hastings, who was also an NFL wide receiver, according to Adam Caplan's twitter.

Not a fair argument as absolutely no one was arguing for wade/bosh at the time over darko. The choice was darko or carmelo.
