Does Beilein visit recruits' moms like Harbaugh?
That's just not him. He's a great coach, but he's not an aggressive "cool" recruiter. That's never going to be him.
There is also still a perception out there, fair or not, that he's a Bo Ryan-esque "system" guy. Stud one-and-done atheletes with NBA dreams want to be the man and show off their talent and not be pinned down in a college "system".

Cardale Jones, Adolphus Washington, Ketzenmoyer, the list goes on.
If you are an elite athlete at Ohio State, you don't have to take classes. They will cover for you. You get to hang out and just focus on your sport.

But we're not even done with the RichRod hate yet.

We have not had an eventful signing day for years. The only thing of note that I recall we when Will Campbell committed a few years ago.

That's what I said. No, you don't have to wash your hands, but now we'll have to wash your gloves instead. She was like, whatever.
Children at that age are gross. They are only a half-step above animals. Maybe only a quarter-step. At least animals will clean themselves.

The definition of casual Friday at my house:
My 8 year old daughter just asked "If you go to the bathroom with your gloves on, do you still have to wash your hands?"

I had no money when I went to Michigan. I had to borrow every dime I spent. I had to stay on campus for spring break because I did not have enough money to go anywhere, even back home.
And yet, I never recall it ever mattering to anybody. Having no money in college is a pretty time-honored tradition and nobody makes a big deal about it, even people who do have money.
Being a college student is one of the few times in your life where poverty is cool.

The problem with a national focus is that it's not reliable year after year. You can hit a stretch like we did where it seems like you finished second for every single elite kid you offered in a position of need.
Notre Dame is in a historically unique situation, but for everybody else like Nebraska that has to recruit nationally, even for their "core 3-stars", it's a hard life.
We are fortunate in that while the state of Michigan does not hae a wealth of talent, many of the surrounding states do like Ohio, PA, NJ, and DC/MD/VA.
|1 day 9 hours ago||I was in Cambridge which is a||
I was in Cambridge which is a grad dorm. It's in the Michigan Union, attached to West Quad. It used to be part of the Michigan Union hotel.
What was nice about it besides its killer central location was that since it was a former hotel you got your own room with its own bathroom. Also since it was a a former hotel, some of the rooms had doors on the inside that could be opened to make a larger double room.
There was a problem with the original room I had, so I was moved to what was the women's floor at the time. I was the only guy on an all-female floor.
If the girl in the room next to mine opened her inside door and I opened mine, we could go back and forth with no walk of shame. Which we did.
What I learned from all of this is: It's not who's better, it's who's there. Many of these girls would not have even said Hi to me at a bar. But because I was around all the time at the dorm, I got to play out of my league.
I miss college.

I have to be honest, I am worried about the direction Jim Harbaugh is taking this program.
I fear he is taking us backward. Back to old-fashioned, boring, conservative . . . player's names.
From trendy 2000's names like Messiah DeWeaver, to your father's 1950's names like Chris Clark.
Mike Weber. Three syllables and a cloud of dust. I just don't like this trend.

I have a good vibe about this.
He's like all those Michigan recruits we've had in the past that said all the right things and said Michigan was the place for them . . . but still kept looking around and would not lock in their committments. There was just something holding them back.
Of course, they wound up somewhere else.
Time for Karma to reverse the phenomenon.

Drake Johnson. Not so much that he'll be magically developed beyond where he is by Harbaugh, but that he will benefit tremendously from a Harbaugh OL. He was near-breakout status last year, and I expect him to finish the job this year.

Yeah, how come nobody ever says "figuratively", like "I was figuratively as happy as a dog with two dicks when Harbaugh won his fourth National Championship at Michigan"?
