|1 week 4 days ago||Those are the first freshman||
Those are the first freshman highlights I have ever bothered to watch.
Sweet Holy Moses that kid's arm is amazing. Even if he was a Navarre-esque statue I would want that kid slinging the rock for UM. Add in his "physical intangibles" and...just...WOW!
Now I am going to be REALLY disappointed if he doesn't end up at UM. Only 2 more years until his signing day, right?

Thanks for the info. I wasn't aware that he took an official to UM this weekend.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||What was the hold up on his||
What was the hold up on his NLOI? Was he slow playing UM?!?
Seriously, though, anyone know why his LOI came in several days "late"?
(I know that "Signing Day" is really just the earliest a player can sign, but it's hard to imagine a punter would need several days to make a decision between Nevada and UM.)
|2 weeks 4 days ago||No MGoBlog post is complete||
No MGoBlog post is complete without the doom-n-gloomers chanting their football equivalent of the "End is HERE!''.
And, lo, there was much wailing and gnasing of teeth with sackcloth and ashes. Michigan will be fine especially after having 10+ picks in the upcoming NFL draft.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Way to harsh my Signing Day||
Way to harsh my Signing Day 2017 buzz, man.
Seriously, that 2013 class...woof! Only 3 big impact players and 8 moderate contributors (at Michigan). Bleah.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||I've seen multiple references||
I've seen multiple references to the punter as "The #1 punter in the country" but 247 composite has him as #13. Where are people getting this #1 stuff?
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Too soon. Forever...too soon.||
|3 weeks 1 day ago||I think that OSU's insane||
I think that OSU's insane class this year was fueled by their crazy NFL draft from last year (5 first round picks, 12 overall). It seems like recruits respond to NFL draft success even more than National Championships.
Michigan is expected to have a pretty deep NFL draft class this year (although not as many first round picks as OSU had last season). If UM has 10-12 players drafted in the upcoming draft, I think UM could see an even better class in 2018 than we just saw for 2017.
|4 weeks 8 hours ago||The sad part is that UGA used||
The sad part is that UGA used to be the SEC school that I kind of liked...now, with Smart as HC, not so much.
I'm not a fan of accusing teams of paying players, but man, it sure seems like UGA has begun doing just that. What is odd, is that it appears that Smart is specifically targeting UM leans (Wilson and Collins) for the "green carpet" treatment. Does he have some sort of past beef with Harbaugh?
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Freudian slip?||
Brian has Nico Collins listed as GA WR Nico Collins. Collins is from Alabama.
I saw elsewhere in the thread that there is no some chatter about how Eason has been trying to get Nico to UGA for 2 years. This sounds quite a bit like the "Isaiah Wilson has been a UGA fan his whole life!!!!" story as reasoning for his surprise commitment to UGA even though there was never any mention by Wilson of an affinity for UGA during his recruitment. I think the UGA bagmen need to come up with some more variety in their cover stories.

It's been 2.5 hours and no one has replied with "That's what she said!"?
I am disappoint.
|5 weeks 2 hours ago||I have no expectations||
I have no expectations whatsoever of UM winning the Big 10 in 2017. Of course, I had no expectations of Penn State winning it in 2016.
I'm not saying...I'm just saying.

Did he happen to look anything like this guy:
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Personally, I am relieved. UM||
Personally, I am relieved.
UM has never been a big player in Tufele's recruitment. For a long time he was thought to be an OSU lean, so I am pleased as punch that he is probably going to end up staying home at Utah.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||I think he is just making an||
I think he is just making an allusion to Harbaugh's love of milk as in Harbaugh ordered all the milk in the restaurant on his recent visit. This coach has shown himself to be a big advocate for Michigan so it is unlikely that he is trying to troll UM fans.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||It took me a few years to get||
It took me a few years to get to his happy place re: recruiting but it is SO much more enjoyable when you can observe it all with a sanity-maintaining level of detachment.
I can still recall the recruit that was my tipping point: Bryce McNeal, a WR from Minnesota who was committed and then decommited to go to Clemson. I was LIVID; taking it as if he had done this to personally upset me. Then I "saw the light" and realized that none of this shit matters at all.
By the way, I don't usually follow the college careers of players who don't end up at UM but I did in McNeal's case for obvious reasons. He didn't do squat at Clemson. I take no pleasure in making that statement but it just confirmed for me how meaningless all these STARZ!!! are when it comes to projecting the potential of HS football players.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||I believe that UM did not||
I believe that UM did not "pass" on Burbridge in the usual sense. He was a borderline guy academically and there was a very real chance that he would not qualify. I think MSU only found out that he did qualify in the summer before he enrolled.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Can't pass up the opportunity to post my fav quote:||
Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Urban Meyer IS a better coach||
Urban Meyer IS a better coach than Nick Saban IMO. He won big at BGSU and Utah (went 12-0 there) without the benefit of a massive talent advantage over his opponents.
Unfortunately, I believe Meyer is probably the best college head coach in the game today. Even Harbaugh is going to have a tough time getting UM back even with OSU as long as Meyer is there.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Because he has more NFL||
Because he has more NFL talent than anyone (even OSU or USC under Cheatin Pete) and a salary cap only slightly lower than most NFL teams.
Buying great talent doesn't make someone an elite coach.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||For the record, I do NOT||
For the record, I do NOT consider Harbaugh elite for precisely the reasons you have stated. He hasn't accomplished enough at the college level to consider him an elite college coach. I still think he is probably about as good as Saban, though.
Take the top ten college coaches in the game today and I contend that they could do just as much (in some cases possibly more) as Saban has with the massive talent advantage Saban has enjoyed at Bama.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||I did not include in my post||
I did not include in my post (but I probably should have done), that I am a firm believer that Saban/Bama has been cheating like mo'fos in the area of recruiting during his entire tenure.
Therefore, I tend to discount his recruiting accomplishments. I think any good coach could win numerous national titles with the talent Alabama has purchased under Saban.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Hmmm.... If true, I may||
If true, I may actually start giving some credence to the jokes about bagment/other dirty recruiting tactics as that would be a 2nd longtime UM lean (nearly "locks" by most accounts) who ends up at UGA whose team kind of sucked this year.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||I can't find the quote I read||
I can't find the quote I read over on 24/7, but I recall reading Isaiah Hole posting the following re: Najee Harris in a thread just a few days ago:
I hear he (Harris) is a big fan of the Dharma Initiative.
For those who don't know or don't remember, the Dharma Initiative was the group that was frequently referenced on the TV show, Lost. The DI was supposed to have been established in Ann Arbor, MI.
I think the inference is pretty clear, no?
Obvious cautionary note: 'CROOTIN!

Ahhh...another poor, misguided soul who has been duped into believing that we actually landed on the moon.

Obligatory "No Politics" comment.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||I stil cannot believe that||
I stil cannot believe that the B1G office did not at least offer some acknowledgement that the officials screwed the hell out of UM in The Game.
I didn't get to see the game live, after I saw the myriad OBVIOUS penalties that OSU got away with, I was left just shaking my head in disbelief that they actually got away with this fraud.
This game has caused me to question whether I still want to follow CFB closely anymore. It just seems like the cheaters (Bama, Clemson, OSU, etc.) always flourish and it pisses me off.
