|1 hour 24 min ago||As far as physical talent||
As far as physical talent goes, I can't really argue that Stallworth is the #1 player in the state. If he doesn't have the motor or if he gets in trouble, obviously that changes his long-term future. But he's a big kid who's athletic. Character concerns aside, he's a guy I would want.

Agreed. His teammates do not look like they're very good at football, either.

If he's shorter than 6'7", then Jake Pickard must REALLY be lying about his height. Pickard is listed at 6'6", and Gentry looks to have at least 2" or 3" on him. So you're basically saying that Jake Pickard is only 6'3", maybe 6'4".
I'm the first person to say that almost every recruiting site has players listed at least 1" taller than their real height, but I think this might be the exception that proves the rule. He looks every bit of 6'7" to me.

He reminds me of Utah's Travis Wilson. He's more mobile than McGwire or Osweiler.

I don't think 2012 was a great year, but Michigan didn't cast its net wide enough. The coaches offered some guys early on, they didn't commit, and the coaches shrugged their shoulders and gave up. There are some guys from that class who have been contributing, like Tommy Armstrong (Nebraska), Travis Wilson (Utah), and Travis Knight (Oklahoma), among others.
|10 hours 34 min ago||The incorrect facts start||
The incorrect facts start with your constant assertion that Alex Malzone is a higher rated quarterback. If you can't get your facts straight, then your opinions based on them don't have much worth.
|10 hours 43 min ago||Oh...so Urban Meyer develops||
Oh...so Urban Meyer develops quarterbacks, but Nick Saban doesn't? And Alabama wins because of the running backs, but Ezekiel Elliott didn't power Ohio State to a national championship with 200+ yards in the last few games of the year?

For all the talk about playing AGAINST mediocre players, you also have to remember that he's playing WITH mediocre players. The completion percentage, touchdowns, bailing out of the pocket, etc. have to be tempered by the fact that his teammates aren't very good at football, either. They did send a 2-star recruit to Colorado...back in 2011.
|15 hours 41 min ago||Riiiiiiiiiiiiight... Alabama||
Alabama only recruits high 4-stars and 5-stars and gets them to national championships, the college football playoffs, etc. And TCU only turns guys into second round picks (Andy Dalton) and Heisman Trophy candidates (Trevone Boykin).
|15 hours 45 min ago||Almost everything you're||
Almost everything you're saying here is wrong. And not just in my opinion, but factually wrong. Furthermore, saying it's "idiotic" to like Harbaugh's recruiting tactics more than Hoke's is pretty dismissive, self-righteous, and silly.
|15 hours 47 min ago||Huh? Alex Malzone is #292||
Alex Malzone is #292 overall and the #13 pro-style quarterback.
Gentry is #175 and the #8 pro-style quarterback.
These are according to 247's Composite rankings.
Gentry is widely regarded as the better quarterback, so I'm not sure what your point is.

He is light right now, but he has the frame to put the necessary weight on. He could easy get to 250 by 2016, and I think he could even get to around Frank Clark size if that's where they want him. He has the frame to carry plenty of weight.

I'm not a big fan of those, either. Those are fine for Twitter feeds, but I think it gets annoying on discussion boards when worthy topics, posts, news items, etc. get pushed off the board.

It would be difficult to cut and paste scouting reports when I don't read other scouting reports. Nice try, though.
|2 days 6 hours ago||The issue I have is that the||
The issue I have is that the post said absolutely nothing other than "Harbaugh is visiting Grant Newsome." If that's all the news to relay, then it's not worth a thread. If there's some other tidbit, then so be it. Did he tell him what jersey he's going to wear? Did he say they want him to play right tackle? Did Harbaugh say he wants him to weigh 305 lbs.?
Harbaugh is going to visit recruits, committed or not committed. We don't need a new thread just to say "Jim Harbaugh is in a school somewhere in the country." Agree or disagree, I don't really care.
As for John Kelly profiles (or something of the sort), at least there's some content or information to discuss.

Brandon Watson could still be around in 2017. It's not clear where the coaches will use him, but he could be a safety, too.
|2 days 9 hours ago||I have no clue what you're||
I have no clue what you're talking about, and I'm not going to continue with this conversation.
|2 days 9 hours ago||No. I don't think it's||
No. I don't think it's important, especially with the lack of provided information. Newsome has not been wavering and has remained solid throughout the entire process. It's not that it's irrelevant to Michigan, but the board would get cluttered if every single visit were given its own thread.

You're relatively new here, so I'll just let you know right now that what you're saying is absolutely untrue.

People (at least one or two) haven't been shy about negging me on the Chris Williamson thread...

Nope. Too much important stuff going on with recruiting and such at this time of year.

I care. Brian promised me a date with Kate Upton if I'm the first poster to reach 51,000 points legitimately.
|2 days 10 hours ago||I was always frustrated by||
I was always frustrated by people touting Floyd, but the thing about him that leaves a sour taste in my mouth is that he got himself suspended. That has nothing to do with his play on the field. He let the team down with his behavior. It's the same reason I'm not a big fan of Hagerup and others. I can almost understand a 19-year-old freshman or sophomore making a bonehead decision, but a fifth-year senior with a child who smokes weed and lets down 114 other guys, the staff, the fans, and the program when he gets caught really annoys me.

Nope. Michigan born and raised.

Some people just don't like me. I get downvoted a lot.

Nah, I like James Rogers. I don't think he was nearly as bad as some people think around here, and if he had stayed at one position instead of bouncing back and forth between WR and CB repeatedly, he could have been better. Off the top of my head, he had 3 picks at corner in 2008 and he averaged over 18 yards/catch at wideout for his career. For comparison's sake, J.T. Floyd - who some people thought was good for some reason - had 3 picks in his career, which included three full seasons of starting. Then he smoked weed and got himself suspended for the bowl game, hanging his team out to dry in a close loss.

He loves America, just not as much as he loves the dance team.
