I only want to hear about if you were a first team all-conference bacon eater for three consecutive years.

Yes, he is Justice's cousin.
He likes us approximately as much as I like bacon.

He's a 2016 prospect.
|2 hours 56 min ago||Thanks for this. I had||
Thanks for this. I had considered what the team would look like without Stauskas, but not without Stauskas and GRIII. It's interesting that sophomore Zak Irvin essentially slides in to replace sophomore Robinson while freshman Chatman will probably take Irvin's spot as the freshman wing off the bench.
This is still looking like a good team as long as McGary returns healthy and if Donnal can get himself ready. Considering the work Jon Sanderson has done previously, I have confidence that Donnal can be ready to play the four.

I think Morgan was more athletic than some of the 6'10" or 6'11" centers he got matched up against. That's why he was a tough cover on pick-and-rolls and why he was able to get position so well against them defensively. Bielfeldt might be a decent rebounder because he seems to have good strength, but I don't think he's going to shoot 70% (or whatever Morgan shot), he's not going to be as good of a defender, and he won't be a great finisher that defenders have to worry about consistently. I believe the term for Bielfeldt in modern internet speak is "JAG" - just a guy.

That exact situation is why I'm going to start posting dudes in Speedos on the front page.

|3 hours 44 min ago||Yeah, it was not a productive||
Yeah, it was not a productive class. It surprised me a little bit because everyone says that wide receiver is an easier position to scout than something like offensive line because the athleticism is one of the biggest things that matters. Of course, it's possible that Michigan just coincidentally went after a bad bunch. A few of those guys had attitude issues (Babb, Simas, etc.).
It's also a little bit interesting to consider what would have happened if Erik Campbell had stuck around to tutor Clemons and Babb. Perhaps the same result would have occurred, but all those guys were recruiting by Lloyd Carr and eventually thrust into Rich Rodriguez's offense. Clemons, for one, tried to play through the coaching change but didn't like that Rodriguez tried to make him into a slot receiver. In an alternate universe where Carr remains the coach and Ryan Mallett sticks around, Clemons might have been a featured 1,000 yard receiver by his junior year.

Bielfeldt is not as good of an athlete as Morgan. He doesn't have the foot speed, leaping ability, or feel for the game.
|4 hours 40 min ago||What have those "recruiting||
What have those "recruiting battles" won Duke and Arizona in the last few years? Hey, Duke got Jabari Parker. Neat. They still lost to a #14 seed in the NCAA Tournament. Arizona did a little better, but not as well as Michigan has over the past two seasons.

We didn't offer Chad Kelly, so I'm not really sure why you think that part is important.
However, IIRC, Kelly was the QB in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl that Ondre Pipkins chased down near the sideline. So at least there's that connection.

Well, that sucks. I don't know why it would be "suspicious." It's just a sports website, and I've purposely hidden all the pictures of girls behind the jump.
|1 day 20 hours ago||"I don't think that being a||
"I don't think that being a star is what Robinson seeks. Belien has said before that he's incredibly unselfish and always does what's best for the team. "
Lebron James has made a pretty good career out of doing those things. Just because you do what's best for the team doesn't mean you can't be a star. A star can just as easily be a guy who will take big shots, grab rebounds, dish out some assists, play some defense, and have a solid all-around game.
P.S. I'm not saying that GRIII is as good as Lebron James or wants to be him. I'm simply saying that there's more than one way to become a star, not just the Carmelo Anthony way.
|1 day 20 hours ago||Michigan is considered to be||
Michigan is considered to be in his top three, so I think there's a chance.
|1 day 20 hours ago||I don't like having too many||
I don't like having too many "projects" or "reaches" on the team at any given time. I think you should almost always have one guy who's a flat-out speed guy, maybe a kick returner who might never be able to do anything more than that - someone like Trindon Holliday or the like. To me, Dennis Norfleet fills that role (not that he's blazingly fast, but he's a guy who probably can't do much else). By 2015 he'll be a senior. I wouldn't be totally opposed to the coaches going after someone like Holloman, but I just think you have to be careful.
|1 day 22 hours ago||Cornell visited for the||
Cornell visited for the Michigan vs. Ohio State game last season, so at least he has that experience under his belt. Michigan didn't win, but it was an exciting game that came down to the final moments. As far as game weeks ago, nobody will have a chance to impress him. And as far as I know, M vs. OSU will be the last official game he sees before he makes his decision. So...there's that.
|1 day 23 hours ago||This would be somewhat||
This would be somewhat disappointing, if only because Robinson could be a star if he stuck around. Instead, he'll leave college as a fairly good player without much of a legacy. Kind of like Jamal Crawford, who played well but didn't really turn into a Michigan fan favorite.

Gordon went from starter at safety/linebacker to backup linebacker, so I can sort of see your point there (though injuries and the presence of Jake Ryan may have had more to do with it).
But Washington absolutely deserves to be on the list. His 2012 season was better than anybody could have expected following his first few seasons here. I'm not sure what happened in 2013 (was he injured?), but he still developed.

Jake Butt was pretty good as a freshman.

So we're going to hold Hoke accountable for what his successor at Ball State failed to accomplish...
...but we're not going to give him credit for Rocky Long's three straight bowl games at SDSU after Hoke left.
Either the successor matters or he doesn't, but you can't have it both ways.

Here's a list of 17 guys to keep an eye on. You can add the commits to it.
QB David Sills

Moran has had two or three visits to Michigan postponed due to weather, lack of a ride, etc.

I agree on Green. If he has a good offensive line, I think Green can be an excellent running back because he'll be taking on safeties and linebackers. But he's not a guy who can create on his own.
|2 days 20 hours ago||Just trust me when I say that||
Just trust me when I say that A.J. Williams will be a junior in the fall. Regardless of what the roster says. If it does say that, it's a typo.
|3 days 1 hour ago||I do expect him to start. I||
I do expect him to start. I thought he took a step forward this spring. From what I've heard, the competition is more at left guard (Bosch, Dawson, etc.). So if we get Lindsay and if Braden can lock down the RT job, I would expect to see Glasgow back at LG.
|3 days 1 hour ago||Well, everyone's entitled to||
Well, everyone's entitled to his own opinion, but I thought he was bad. And I believe the UFR's from 2012 would agree.
|3 days 1 hour ago||Mattison just went with a LCB||
Mattison just went with a LCB and a RCB last year, not field and boundary corners.
|3 days 1 hour ago||It's not necessarily about||
It's not necessarily about technique. Sometimes it's size, sometimes it's skill, sometimes it's strength, etc.
And aside from that, sometimes guys are just meant to be corners instead of safeties. It doesn't mean they're bad tacklers for cornerbacks. It just means that they might not be able to hold up to 225 lb. running backs who bust through the first two levels and are coming downhill. I mean, not many safeties are going to be able to lay that guy on his back unless your name is Steve Atwater, but it's just a different position.
