Can't wait to see if Dockers crushed it.

Michigan has never beaten Ohio State for most of the top recruits in Ohio. Yet we still managed to beat Ohio State on the field.
We'll be fine once we stop shooting ourselves in the foot.
|20 hours 32 min ago||This is self-solving. Meyer||
This is self-solving. Meyer wants to recruit more nationally. He will still take his core of Ohio kids, but he'll be limited on how many he can take.
If we start winning and showing a pulse, we will be a natural draw for top Ohio kids, just like we have been for 100+ years.
There will always be a few Ohio State lifers that we won't get (and never got in the past either, like Spielman), but we will get more than our share of top Ohio kids.

It's true, Morris does need QB coaching, perhaps even more than the other guys.
And he'll get it.
But we're acting like he's already gotten it and he's failed and it's all over. The process has only just begun.
|23 hours 17 min ago||It happens every coaching||
It happens every coaching change. The new regime is great, the old one was lame.
Harbaugh will leave eventually, and when he does, whether he won a lot or not, you will hear how impressive the new regime is versus the old.
We are just believing what we want to believe.

Not for me.
|23 hours 23 min ago||He gets some slack from me.||
He gets some slack from me. He was right about Harbaugh, he was early with it, and he stood behind it when everybody balsted him for it. He's not a total hack.

It's times like these where I wish I had a female to console me.
The way it works is that you feel bad enough about the loss, but then she piles on and rants at you for wasting 3 hours watching basketball until midnight and then waking her up when you finally come to bed and then she can't get back to sleep and she has an important meeting in the morning so you get the cold shoulder all the next day.
Something like that.

Holy shit, do we have "Lose Close" nailed down. It's time to move on.

You do know that 25 seconds means that we will probably have to inbound at least once, don't you?

And the 1-3-1 stubbornness against teams that have figured it out.
He has some rigid things he holds on to that bite the team in the ass.

He's a Superhero.

Of course he did. He went back in time and invented pizza. He then dreamed up Linux while eating the first pizza. So then he had to go foward in time (but not too far) and invent Linux. He then went forward in time enough to tweet Madonna.
Tomorrow he will invent football and styrofoam cups.

once you give it up you can't get it back
Yes, this is the whole point.
If you don't really like college, or you just came to college to kill time until the Pro's, then fine, leave as soon as you can.
Or if you think you only have one shot to make it big in the Pro's and that time is now, then fine, leave now. The college experience is great, but not great enough to miss out on the chance to make millions vs. thousands.
But if you like college and you can help your future draft status even a little by staying another year, then stay. Once you give it up you can't get it back.

Gotta feel sorry for Beilein. He doesn't do the One-and-Done's, but he always gets stuck with the Two-and-Thru's.
He takes all these marginal guys who don't have anything near the equivalent of a Michigan offer, developes them and builds them up, and then loses them right as they become productive.
He's like the poor guy at the bar who buys drinks and chats up the girl in the corner who's being ignored all night . . . and then she leaves with the drummer in the band.
|1 day 20 hours ago||Not really. A 30+ year old||
A 30+ year old ex NBA player with a wife and possibly even kids can't really recreate the college experience. They can get their degree off to the side, which is what a lot of them do, but they're not actually going "back to school".
Hell, I could go back to Michigan and take some classes, but it wouldn't be replicating the college experience. I'd just be some creeper around campus.
The college experience as a young person is a unique and highly underrated life experience. I would not trade mine for anything. But once it's over, it's over.

This is likely the real reason.
|1 day 20 hours ago||College is also a great||
College is also a great experience, one you will never be able to replicate for the rest of your life.
At this point in my life, I can afford nice vacations, cars, house, etc. The stuff money can buy. What I can't do is replicate the college experience. What I wouldn't give to be able to go back in time for even one year of college.
So, if you know you are good enough to play in the NBA and get the big paycheck, why not stay in college an extra year? It's the last chance you'll ever get.

He was a douche, but he got it done when it counted. You have to tip your hat while at the same time hating him.
