Now we see how the sausage is made much more
This is so true. 20 years ago, you did not know about anything. You just read some kind of "recruiting roundup" a few days after everyone was signed. You did not really know much about where they came from or how they got here.

It's too good to just sit idle.

God help that little girl if she gets between him and a foul ball.

Agreed. i could have gone to UCLA, but I actually preferred Michigan, weather and all. UCLA is great in a "vacation" sort of way, but it does not feel very college-y. I wanted that unique college experience. I knew I had the rest of my life to go on vacations.

I would paint that stat on the wall of the locker room when recruits come to visit.
|1 day 6 hours ago||It does suck having to||
It does suck having to recruit against UCLA in January. For a 17 year old from Conneticut in winter, it's like seeing the Emerald City at the end of the road.
|1 day 6 hours ago||Yeah, let's get the rest of||
Yeah, let's get the rest of Texas's recruits. Then we can circle back to UCLA.

Forgot about that. Good catch.

They left when we started losing and Hoke was on the hot seat. It was pre-emptive for many of them.

Fuck it. On to USC's.
|1 day 7 hours ago||Shit, he had more sports||
Shit, he had more sports glory in that one day that I've had my whole life.
Neither of us were going to play big time sports, he just did something, um, creative about it.

|1 day 7 hours ago||Well, when you have to do all||
Well, when you have to do all of your recruiting after January 15th, that will happen. Just about anyone worth having is committed somehwere by now. We just have to show them a better deal.
|1 day 7 hours ago||He already has one.||
He already has one.
|1 day 7 hours ago||It's one thing to be able to||
It's one thing to be able to keep playing as you march into your 40s at a position like kicker or even QB. But as a DB? That's just absurd what he is able to do.
|1 day 7 hours ago||I'm with you. I have a||
I'm with you. I have a little bit of that Harbaugh feel. He could end it all very quickly and politely with no fuss with a simple "No Thanks". But he's not doing it. Where there's smoke . . .
|1 day 7 hours ago||I've been following Michigan||
I've been following Michigan since the early 80's. Over the years, we have gotten a ton of Ohio recruits who grew up die-hard Ohio State fans. It wokrs both ways.
|1 day 7 hours ago||Screw that. I hope he picks||
Screw that. I hope he picks Michigan. He won't go wrong at either place, really. So he might as well pick us.

Denard. Because everyone loves Denard.

Harry gets to skate by on a lot of those traditions because he gets air cover from not being his brother. It's almost expected "Poor Harry, he'll never get to be King. Of course he needs to act out now and then. You would too for the disappointment. Leave him alone."
Meanwhile he laughing all the way to the party.
|1 day 8 hours ago||I am the epitome of a||
I am the epitome of a Michigan football fanatic and a college football fanatic. But having the games on New Year's Eve evening is going to make it very tough for me to be able to watch the whole thing.
Unless you are single, New Years Eve is not an evening that you get to just dictate what everyone is going to do, such as watch college football. There are long-standing events that are not going to just stop happening.
College football on New Year's Day is a tradition and I can watch to my heart's content. But New Years Eve is already spoken for. I hope they change this.
|2 days 9 hours ago||Yes, that is exactly right.||
Yes, that is exactly right. The schools that are complaining are the other private college prep schools . . . who do the same thing.
|2 days 9 hours ago||Same here. Somebody has to||
Same here. Somebody has to look after the kids who will be off because a 10,000 pound bus can't be expected to move in 2" of snow.
Even though, I swear, they have the exact same busses in Chicago and Detroit.
|2 days 9 hours ago||They shut the schools down on||
They shut the schools down on mere rumors of snow.
|2 days 10 hours ago||Malzone is an early enrollee.||
Malzone is an early enrollee. He may not even redshirt, while Gentry almost certainly will. It is conveivable that he and Gentry would not even be in the same QB "class". I don't think he's any more worried about Gentry than he would be about Speight or a 2016 recruit.
Somewhere along the line if you want to be the starter at Michigan, you'll have to step up and prove it anyway.
|2 days 10 hours ago||Here is the silver lining to||
Here is the silver lining to the gut punch we all took on January 12th: I can't help but think that Ohio State winning the National Championship helps us with these kind of recruits . . . a New Mexico kid that had his eyes on Texas, but now winds up at Michigan.
He has no natural affinity for Michigan and the Big Ten. It has to help that Big Ten East is now an interesting, and dare I say, cool place to be. We don't have to spend the recruiting cycle apologizing for our conference and explaining why in the world a kid from the Southwest would want to come here.
|2 days 10 hours ago||Plus even in NJ, I don't||
Plus even in NJ, I don't think he is going to be the on-the-road recruiter in that state. At least not at schools like Don Bosco.
It's not like he's going to be the sole ambassador for Michigan for all schools in NJ. Most of them will never see him at all.
|2 days 11 hours ago||It does look a little funny,||
It does look a little funny, but it is all legal and above board. There is little downside for anybody in that these are staff admin positions that people come and go in.
If he's great in the role, he'll stay for a while and then leave for the next step up. If he's not all that great but helps us get in with the top player in the counrty in an area we have a big need, he'll still stay for a while an then leave for the next step up. Everybody gains something.

That really is a cool story, bro. And well written.
I heard some advice from an old guy once that I liked that seems relvant to your story:
In your 20's, risk all you can,
In your 30's, learn all you can,
In your 40's, earn all you can,
In your 50's, lead all you can,
In your 60s, teach all you can.
You did what you did at the perfect time. You will hit a point in your life where you can never do that kind of thing again. As time goes by, you will be more and more glad you did what you did.
