Well, Rosen and Stidham are pretty much off the board...
I guess it's time to offer Kyle Kearns.
|42 min 8 sec ago||Stidham never seemed that||
Stidham never seemed that interested, and he just committed to Texas Tech. Don Bosco is not a football player.
We're probably only taking one quarterback.
|43 min 37 sec ago||Michigan had two practices,||
Michigan had two practices, and then they went on spring break. That's why it's scarce.
|44 min 51 sec ago||There's a reason we learn||
There's a reason we learn grammar, spelling, punctuation, etc. in elementary school.
You calling someone a "douche" for pointing out poor grammar is just as judgmental as someone pointing out bad grammar.

I'm not sure that your opinion has been vindicated. The "history of Michigan football" is quite lengthy, and there have been some bad coordinators. Also, Borges had a couple pretty good seasons (2011, 2012) and some record-setting performances (Gardner, Gallon).
|12 hours 36 min ago||I don't think Speight is||
I don't think Speight is Nussmeier's ideal quarterback, but he has the arm strength to push the ball deep, which is a part of Nussmeier's plan. I think Speight will surprise people occasionally with his ability to run, because he's the type of guy who can drag a tackler for a couple extra yards or run through the tackle of a cornerback or safety. Ultimately, I don't know that Speight has the accuracy or decision making skills of an elite quarterback, which is why I want to see him followed up by an elite prospect. That way he can sort of bridge the gap between Morris - who looks pretty good - and the 2015 player, who can hopefully take over or at least push Speight when Morris graduates.

|17 hours 36 min ago||Top prospects over the past||
Top prospects over the past few years who have not signed on NSD have generally had further bumps in the road (Pryor, Seantrel Henderson, Bryce Brown), but there are also guys like Alex Kozan who seemed genuinely conflicted, quietly signed with Auburn, and AFAIK has had no serious troubles on his way to starting in the National Championship game this past season.
|17 hours 47 min ago||I know you're not equating||
I know you're not equating the two, but we should keep in mind that Pryor chose to carry it out past NSD for _________________ (who knows?) reason. McDowell's situation is a little bit different in that he clearly wants to go to MSU, but his parents do not see eye to eye with him. If it were up to McDowell, this would all be over with and he wouldn't be garnering this much attention right now.

I never realized before last weekend that you were in "The Usual Suspects."
|18 hours 37 min ago||Mom still does not like MSU,||
Mom still does not like MSU, and she and Malik are trying to shore things up. She does not like the non-academic atmosphere at MSU and wants him to go somewhere else. It's still a fluid situation, and from everything I've heard, Michigan isn't totally out of it. They're also not going after him hard because he doesn't like hard sells and they don't want to turn him off.

|20 hours 39 min ago||Thanks. I spent about an hour||
Thanks. I spent about an hour and 20 minutes last night watching film of Waller and Wimbush (the final two on my alphabetical list), typing up their scouting reports, and then ranking all the prospects. So I'm glad people appreciate it.
|21 hours 55 min ago||I could be wrong, but I do||
I could be wrong, but I do not believe that Sills and Nussmeier have met before, at least not since Michigan hired Nussmeier. So yes, I think it could be a situation where Sills is trying to get a feel for Michigan, a feel for Nussmeier's vision, etc.
As mentioned in the linked post, I do not believe Sills is a quality option for what Nussmeier wants. He's not athletic enough to be Nussmeier's ideal, and he was already well down my list of pocket passers.
|22 hours 1 min ago||Borges was in heavy contact||
Borges was in heavy contact with Kearns, and Nussmeier has maintained contact. I think the coaches are very interested in him, but for whatever reason, he's a little bit down the pecking order. From what I've heard, Kearns is very high on Michigan and I think we would have an excellent shot at landing him if we offered.
|22 hours 3 min ago||I believe he set his||
I believe he set his announcement date for March 20th, so clear your schedule for some thumb sucking that day.
|22 hours 45 min ago||The thing with Rosen is, I||
The thing with Rosen is, I look at what Alabama did with A.J. McCarron, and I think Rosen can be every bit that good, if not better. Now Rosen is about to commit to UCLA so I don't really think it matters, but I don't think Nussmeier would be dead set on getting a dual-threat guy if he can get an elite pocket guy.

Happy Friday, errybody.
|1 day 17 hours ago||I honestly mean no offense,||
I honestly mean no offense, but it probably looked like that to you because the vast majority of football fans don't understand the complexity of each play. There are 100 different plays you can run that look like "a run up the middle for negative yardage or no gain."

AFAIK, he has not been hired by another program.

I'm not familiar with the author of the article, but it was a really good read.
|1 day 19 hours ago||Khalid Hill has reportedly||
Khalid Hill has reportedly been practicing at the Y position (the same position as Williams, Butt, etc.).
|2 days 9 hours ago||One could argue that Clark||
One could argue that Clark DID have a breakout year. His numbers weren't spectacular, but the coaches voted him 2nd team All-Big Ten. Going from a backup to 2nd team all-conference is a pretty big step.

Not to burst your bubble, but WOTS is that another lineman got injured during practice last week.
|2 days 14 hours ago||There have been one or two||
There have been one or two videos posted, but I think last year's videos took a while to be put up. Also, the whole Youtube crackdown has prevented some guys from converting them off of the MGoBlue site.
|3 days 12 hours ago||I do not believe that||
I do not believe that Michigan's recruiting strategy at WDE is "elite player or bust." I think the coaches feel pretty confident in the guys they've offered, so they're not planning on going after anyone else right now. If those offers fail to turn into commitments, then I fully believe Michigan will continue going after lower rated guys. Michigan does not have a lot of depth at weakside end; by the time any 2015 kids get to campus, Clark will be gone, Ojemudia will be a senior, and Marshall will be a sophomore.
|3 days 12 hours ago||If I had a Crystal Ball vote,||
If I had a Crystal Ball vote, I would do so too. If Franklin hadn't been hired at PSU, I think Jenkins would be a Wolverine. Oh well. That's the way the cookie crumbles sometimes.

Jordan Morgan's gonna need a replacement...
|3 days 20 hours ago||re: Steven Moya||
I was just reading an article in SI about spring training, and a guy brought up the thought that 20 years ago, every team had a rightfielder with a cannon arm...but now he says there's maybe just a dozen guys with "rightfield arms" in MLB. I thought that was interesting, because I used to love watching guys like Raul Mondesi hose guys out from rightfield. I used to think the coolest play in baseball was the 9-3 out where lollygaggers got thrown out at first.
