For somebody who has spent a majority of his commenting time talking about movies, you sure are insistent that we should only talk about Michigan 'round these parts.
Then, of course, there are the handful of "This is a Michigan blog" comments, along with "Commence Sparty whining."

I think those jackasses are who he's referring to with O$U, Ped State, etc.
|1 day 8 hours ago||Looking back at past||
Looking back at past MGoProfiles, it's sort of interesting to see how many guys who were "worthy" of them don't post here much anymore. TomVH, Formerly Anonymous, jamiemac, etc.
|1 day 8 hours ago||They were there to recruit||
They were there to recruit other kids and to ask why Mason Cole picked Michigan.

Forcier's comments just make it funnier. If you make punk comments like that, you get what you deserve when you flunk out of school.
|1 day 18 hours ago||I believe that rule has||
I believe that rule has changed, so now players have to sit out the NCAA-mandated one year, but they can receive a scholarship after the transfer. If Justin Boren did his thing now, he wouldn't have had to pay his own way like he did a couple years ago.

Chances are slim that he has changed that much in the past 7 or 8 months. While it's true that he might have developed and improved, so have the other players that I am using in comparison when I say that he looks like a linebacker.

Hm. I guess I had forgotten. Thanks for jogging my memory.
|1 day 22 hours ago||I mean, the NCAA fines||
I mean, the NCAA fines coaches who use chewing tobacco on the sideline, so this video seems a bit strange in that respect...
|2 days 13 min ago||That video was largely devoid||
That video was largely devoid of action.
Also, if I'm Arizona's PR department, I don't know that I like the idea of putting all the coaches out there smoking, drinking, and playing cards. Not exactly a wholesome look.
Also, I must have missed this several months ago, but Tony Gibson is no longer on Arizona's staff. WTF? I thought he and Rodriguez were boys. It looks like Gibson is back coaching the safeties at WVU.

|2 days 23 min ago||I'm going to have to go ahead||
I'm going to have to go ahead and disagree with Josh Helmholdt here. I really think Tranquill is a future linebacker. He's kind of stiff and doesn't have great speed.
|2 days 27 min ago||I believe the "senior year"||
I believe the "senior year" starts with the first NCAA contest of the student's senior school year. So if the first NCAA football game is on August 27, then 2014 kids can start taking official visits on that date.
AFAIK, students cannot receive scholarships to camps from the universities themselves. However, I believe high school booster groups can provide financial assistance for their athletes to attend camps. I think that's one reason why Ted Ginn (from Cleveland Glenville) has made a big name for himself, because he has taken large groups of his players on a bus to some of these camps. Somebody can correct me on that if I'm mistaken.
|2 days 2 hours ago||I've mentioned this before,||
I've mentioned this before, but Brennen Beyer isn't really projected to be Cam Gordon's backup. Beyer played over Gordon at SAM in 2011, and Beyer started at SAM over Gordon in the spring game. At no point has Gordon ever been ahead of Beyer on a depth chart.
Personally, I prefer Gordon and want him to win the job, but the coaches seem to disagree with me.

If you trust Braylon Edwards, his younger brother is going to win the Heisman and lead Minnesota to the Rose Bowl.
|2 days 2 hours ago||He's originally from||
He's originally from Illinois, so it makes sense. I think it's probably a good choice for him, too.
|2 days 3 hours ago||Unofficial visits are||
Unofficial visits are unlimited. You can have up to 5 official visits, but those can only be taken during a student-athlete's senior year. The school pays for the player and one other person (mom, dad, older brother, uncle, coach, etc.) to fly in and lodge on campus.
Any high schooler can sign up for Michigan's camp. I haven't looked at their brochure this year, but I have looked at brochures for SEC and other Big Ten schools' camps a few weeks ago for one of our players, and cost of the camp would probably be in the neighborhood of $300 (depending on how many days the kid plans to stay). It's not cheap.

Maybe he's a fan of the Muppets.
|2 days 3 hours ago||As of now, yes. We'll see||
As of now, yes. We'll see what happens in the next year and a half or so. I wouldn't be surprised if something changes, whether they tell him no thanks or they pursue a higher rated guy to compete with him (and perhaps chase him away).

True. I think Sills is from Delaware, though.
|2 days 6 hours ago||I wouldn't define it as||
I wouldn't define it as "ridiculous." He has good hands and catches the ball well in traffic. But as an athlete (speed, leaping ability, change of direction, etc.), I just don't find him that appealing.

|2 days 7 hours ago||David Sills was offered as a||
David Sills was offered as a 7th grader and committed to USC. It's kind of funny, because he's a 2015 kid and there are lots of good quarterbacks in the 2015 class . . . and he's not one of the top few guys. 247 Sports has him ranked as a 3-star and the #18 pro-style QB.
|2 days 8 hours ago||Miller had better rushing||
Miller had better rushing statistics than Hyde (more yards and higher YPC, though fewer TD's), and Miller is also a decent throwing QB (58.3% completions, 15 touchdowns, 6 picks).

Why must I choose?
|2 days 20 hours ago||Yeah...what these superhero||
Yeah...what these superhero movies need these days is more comedians. Orgazmo was just about the best superhero movie I've seen.
|2 days 21 hours ago||I was expecting to see||
I was expecting to see Braxton Miller shirtless when I clicked on this thread.
|2 days 21 hours ago||Yeah, Kief is a tall||
Yeah, Kief is a tall possession receiver. Harris is definitely more explosive.
|2 days 21 hours ago||Michigan probably would have||
Michigan probably would have been in the mix if the coaches offered, but they never did.

Here's the visitor list I compiled:
Patrick enjoyed his visit and said that he hopes to come back. Usually if kids are extremely impressed, they say "I'll definitely be back" or something like that. So I don't know if he loved his visit exactly, but it was somewhat positive.
