- Just left the staff to pursue coaching, so he's intimately familiar with the program and the culture
- Is originally from St. Clair Shores, so he'd be familiar with the recruiting territory

I do not think Karma means what you think it means. Check the timeline.
|39 weeks 5 days ago||I did not know that was how Karma worked...||
So you're saying that Jed York stiffed Kawakami for a dinner bill in April 2014 as Karmic retribution for something he might write in a column after the 49ers fired Harbaugh in December 2014? I did not know that was how Karma worked. But, then again, I'm not from the Bay Area, so I don't know a lot of things.

You mean the Cotton Bowl where 3-star quarterback recruit Jake Coker went 25/30 for 286 yards and 2 touchdowns?
Otherwise, I agree with your point. This blog has shown plenty of data in the past to correlate star ratings to success. OP's point about coaching has merit as well.

Got my 8 year old son a Charles Woodson fathead (lifesized wall sticker). He loves it. And the timing is perfect.

If you were a pedant, you'd know that Grand Traverse Bay is part of Lake Michigan.

how can a player be a bust and a weapon at the same time?

|2 years 24 weeks ago||But why would someone from Ohio apply to both?||
But why would someone from Ohio apply to both UM and OSU if tuition is ultimately the deciding factor? It isn't as if someone rejected by OSU would in turn be accepted by UM. And I don't really mean that to sound elitist -- it just doesn't make sense given OSU's stated commitment to the "people of Ohio". It would be interesting to read how the question of preference is written.

Hilarious on multiple levels!
|2 years 27 weeks ago||Kam Chatman and DJ Wilson||
Although MAAR and Dawkins aren't considered blue chips, wouldn't you consider Kam Chatman and DJ Wilson on a similar level as Mitch, GR3, and Nik? With Teske kicking off the '16 class, I think it's too early to say that there's been a falloff in recruiting.

I blame Adidas. We should switch to Nike so that it can say "Just Do It" there instead.

Oh, now I see the parallel: The ROTC gets weapons training; McGary is a weapon. Just look at his guns!
|2 years 45 weeks ago||Congrats||
Congrats on the upgrade to a Milwaukee accent! It must be a relief to have put such distance between you and your grating Michigan drawl. :)
|2 years 49 weeks ago||Is this actually original reporting by the Freep?||
Is this actually original reporting or is the Freep simply generating clicks by summarizing the 60 Minutes Sports piece that aired on February 27th?

Good get. Luther Van Dam was a solid defensive coordinator for the Minnesota State Screaming Eagles in the early 90s. I wonder if Dauber is the next hire...

What became of the StubHub analysis? Are you continuing to track this year against dynamic pricing?
|3 years 23 weeks ago||Ol' and New 98....||
Credit for putting together the uncanny photo comparo goes to @trUFERblue on The Victors board:
As he posted: "794 games and nearly 73 years apart, with no player having worn that jersey in between those two shots. (as an aside, according to the Bentley Library's roster database, Harmon is the only other player to have *ever* worn 98 for Michigan)"
|3 years 27 weeks ago||Not 247s National Scouting Director||
He's with something called recruitrecon.com and he's only ever made 8 predictions... Not very credible I would say. In fact, he probably got his tip from this board.

...perhaps Hoke's quote is motivation for them to try to change the field dimensions instead. "We'll show him 100 yards...!!!"

Or is that Urban Meyer's recruiting pitch?
|3 years 33 weeks ago||Travis Conlan||
Travis Conlan as a candidate seems to make several degrees of natural sense to me:
Quote from Beilein: "Travis was born to coach."
|3 years 36 weeks ago||You're probably right...||
Harbaugh probably never turned down the Michigan job at all. Dave Brandon likely found out that Harbaugh changed his mind about taking the job in a 'Niners press release.
The dude is a mercenary and only preaches ethics when it suits him. Bo would be pissed.

Seriously, this is you.

I think this pretty much captured the absurdity of Wetzel's opinion.

Do you care about Michigan Basketball yet?

My 5 year old son upvotes your comment and congratulates you on your wit.
