No intelligent person suggested the interview would impact anything.
|23 hours 11 min ago||I love how people argue that||
I love how people argue that noon games let them do stuff around the house but later ones don't. The games are the same length at any time. You still have half a day either way. What a ridiculous and lazy argument.
|23 hours 14 min ago||Nobody plays big noon games.||
Nobody plays big noon games. Even in November. You do realize the NFL plays deep into the winter and nobody seems to mind? Noon games are relics. And very few people like them.
|23 hours 18 min ago||Noon sucks. Too sleepy and||
Noon sucks. Too sleepy and subdued.
|1 day 18 hours ago||The screaming highlighter||
The screaming highlighter color could only be preferred by teenagers. The team has historically worn, maize (albeit in marginally different shades) because that happens to be the the intended color. Which also looks better.
|2 days 15 hours ago||Cavs will still find a way to||
Cavs will still find a way to lose.
|4 days 17 hours ago||It may surprise you to learn||
It may surprise you to learn that the media doesn't publish stories based on whether they're convenient for the program.
|4 days 18 hours ago||That's the rationalization||
That's the rationalization fans always use.
|5 days 14 hours ago||Seriousy, dude? Another||
Seriousy, dude? Another thread on this inane topic? Really?
|6 days 22 hours ago||I see your point. But mostly,||
I see your point. But mostly, I think, when you determine to attract as much attention as harbaugh does, you're also going to invite more scrutiny. Every little negative thing will be noted. That's just the way it goes. And it's not unfair.
|1 week 1 hour ago||Nick's online chats are||
Nick's online chats are particularly bad. He offers no new information or insights and basically just says "only time will tell" to every question. He's lazy and not terribly insightful.
|1 week 22 hours ago||I don't think you understand||
I don't think you understand how journalism works. You think they should just sit on their hands and not report a player's allegations -- even after asking M for comment? If this were Bama, I bet you'd be the first guy accusing ESPN of a coverup.
|1 week 23 hours ago||Yeah. Only a dumbass like you||
Yeah. Only a dumbass like you would make this a partisan political issue.
|1 week 2 days ago||Agreed. This is a lousy||
Agreed. This is a lousy precedent. Great lesson for the players.
|1 week 2 days ago||Yes. They fit the profile and||
Yes. They fit the profile and have a certain old-school glamour about them.
|1 week 6 days ago||Gee, this isn't a stale old||
Gee, this isn't a stale old chestnut or anything. Let it go already.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||No. The coaches already know||
No. The coaches already know we'll have a few medicals and a few fifth-years who won't be back. So they haven't over signed. They're under no obligation to inform us of the current roster numbers.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Correct. It's so early in the||
Correct. It's so early in the cycle, things haven't had a chance to shake out. Inevitably, at least a few of these kids will go elsewhere -- ones that get late offers from their local team, or ones worried they'll get buried on michigan's depth chart.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Oversigning isn't measured||
Oversigning isn't measured until the end of the recruiting year.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||There's literally zero chance||
There's literally zero chance that guys like Gary will be turned away.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||People have said the same||
People have said the same thing prior to each of the past several seasons.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||I think you're generally||
I think you're generally right. But most of the 2-stars will become 3s. And a few 3s will become 4s. It's just the nature of the beast. Under the radar kids who make high-profile commits inevitably get more attention and benefit of the doubt.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Given the universe of random||
Given the universe of random OT posts -- where to dine in Paris, Game of Thrones blather -- this doesn't seem off-base. It involves a blue-chip player at a B10 football rival.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Which reliable people? I||
Which reliable people? I don't see anyone at the big sites saying this.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Well, he's evidently alone in||
Well, he's evidently alone in that opinion, since none of the other "experts" has Jackson to Michigan.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Perhaps you haven't been||
Perhaps you haven't been informed that we probably have roughly 10 more slots to fill. The class is likely to end up closer to 25 than 14, according to most "insiders." We could easily end up with 10-12 4-stars (and maybe one or two 5-stars). Also, most of our 2-stars will end up as 3-stars; some of the 3-stars will become 4s. We could very likely end up with a Top 10 class. Top 15, at worst.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Seriously, do you not realize||
Seriously, do you not realize we'd end up with 10-12 three-stars no matter what (assuming a class close to 25)? Nobody recruits 90 percent 4-5 stars. We still have about 20 spots saved for the tougher gets, who tend to hold out until later in the process. Better to fill out your roster now, then focus on the touch pulls. We'll get some, lose some. But the current pattern makes sense.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Morris has two left, I think.||
Morris has two left, I think.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||But they're not all taking||
But they're not all taking the place of 4 stars. We still have maybe a dozen more slots. No team except maybe the top few gets all 4-5 stars. In the end, we could still have two-thirds four stars. And that's excellent. So calm down.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||I think you possibly||
I think you possibly overestimate the degree to which coaching at camps ultimately matters. You can only learn so much in such a very short time, especially when there's like 20 other qbs there. These camps are mostly about PR and ego.
