Mount St. Mary's hired a private equity CEO to be their president. You'll never guess what happened next.

I believe Collins has decided on pursuing football.
M.J. Walker, on the other hand, is another WR we've offered in the 2017 class. He's also a standout basketball player (#8 overall to ESPN), and I believe he's leaning toward a hoops career.

This was the expected landing spot all along. He's a pretty talented runner, and he should be a step up over last year's starter. They did not have much of a run game.

AFAIK, support personnel like "analysts" are not limited by the NCAA since they're not on-the-field coaches.
It would not affect Michigan's ability to hire Bush. I have not heard promising things about Poggi coming to Michigan at this point, but the door isn't shut.

Is this another Wolverine Devotee account?

He might turn out to be the best, but Thomas is ranked lower than David Long and just barely ahead of where Lavert Hill was in 2016.
|11 hours 11 min ago||Personally, I think the Hall||
Personally, I think the Hall of Fame should be a mix of traits. Winning is *a* factor, but it's not the only factor. If Michael Jordan hadn't won any NBA championships, he should still be in the NBA Hall of Fame. If you're a long snapper who wins 4 Super Bowls, you shouldn't be in the Hall of Fame.
If the HOF were based only on stats, then you would simply just need to look up the top pass receivers, rushers, passers, sackers, tacklers, etc. to make the choice.
If the HOF were based only on Super Bowls, then you take the starters from every Super Bowl team and put them in the HOF.
But that's not how it works. Swann probably wouldn't be in the HOF for his stats only, so his winning propelled him there. And that's fine. I don't have a problem with him having a bust in Canton. But that seems to have warped his thinking to the point where he thinks winning is the only thing that matters when it comes to the HOF.
Also, the name of the place is the Hall of FAME. Granted, not every player who is "famous" deserves to be there (such as Johnny Manziel), but that's part of the equation. Calvin "Megatron" Johnson is a guy who is known by his nickname, one of the greatest physical specimens to ever play the position, has great statistics, etc. He's not just a star in the league, but a superstar. That should also be a part of the equation.

Well, if Swann is right, then I think there's a problem with the Hall of Fame.
There should be a Hall of People Who Won Super Bowls.
And there should be a Hall of People Who Were Great in the Regular Season. Personally, I think the Hall of People Who Were Great in the Regular Season would look pretty enticing with people like Dan Fouts, Dan Marino, Barry Sanders, Calvin Johnson, and lots of others.
Isn't there already an award for people who, like, won Super Bowls and stuff? Isn't it the Lombardi Trophy? Isn't it a Super Bowl ring? Why do individual players have to win team championships/playoff games to be recognized for their individual greatness?

That's odd. I use Chrome on a 13.3" screen, and I have no issues working with the site.
Maybe I'll just have to create an app...

You'll just have to figure out some way to sabotage it. Get the groom drunk and take a picture of him grinding on a transgender midget. Or set the venue on fire.

Peoples-Jones has an eye on playing somewhere warm, like USC or Florida.
Clarence Thompson went to Michigan, and his kid didn't pick us.

Right now about 22 players. So it will get bigger than that.

The person signed up two years ago and has just 14 MGoPoints. Often that means somebody who is sharing "inside information"....probably has a bit of inside information. Otherwise, why lurk for two years just to throw out some mildly interesting info about a 3-star recruit?

If the ball were a laptop, I bet Newton would have dived right on it.

If Tom Brady didn't go after the ball, that would also be embarrassing.
|2 days 3 hours ago||Agreed. The only real||
Agreed. The only real possible drawback is if he gives Michigan players/recruits a higher draft grade evaluation based on the fact that he showed up to Michigan's campus for a charity event. And that's quite a stretch to think that he's going to bump Kareem Walker up a round or two in the 2019 NFL Draft simply because he was there for the Signing of the Stars back in 2016...

We could have Knute Rockne, Bill Walsh, Don Shula, and Vince Lombardi show up, and somebody would bitch about Walsh's inability to develop a dual-threat quarterback or Vince Lombardi's imperfect smile.
The guy showed up to a charity event that helped bring money to a good cause and visibility to Michigan football.
Remember the old saying about "Don't look a gift horse in the mouth"?

Whoa, whoa, whoa. Let's slow down the hype train here, folks.

One interesting thing I think about the USC situation is that they get so many good athletes, maybe that's not a great place for someone like Joe McKnight to go. You could go somewhere else, be a jack-of-all-trades, and be the focal point of the offense. But with all the talent going to USC, someone like him is still going to have a battle on his hands to get on the field and touch the ball.
Take Jabrill Peppers, for example. If Peppers went to USC or Alabama, he would be good. But would he be as revered or utilized in as many different roles as he is at Michigan? Probably not, because they have guys who can run the ball, who can return punts, etc. He would be a safety and maybe returning some kicks.
|3 days 36 min ago||Regarding the accuracy of the||
Regarding the accuracy of the recruiting rankings, I'm not sure I buy your theory that we're more informed now. I mean, *we* (as in you and I) are more informed, but those first seven guys (2000-2006, not including Taliaferro) turned into 1st round picks. Since then you've had McKnight, Barkley, Powell, Green-Beckham, etc., who have all arguably underperformed at the next level. In fact, since 2007 I would say the only two guys who have arguably reached their potential have been Jadeveon Clowney (despite a so-so junior year) and Leonard Fournette so far.
As for coaching, I don't know... I mean, I like Greg Mattison a lot, but there are plenty of other coaches who know what they're doing, too. Miami was known for churning out linebackers when D.J. Williams was there, Andre Smith went to a pretty good OL-producing program at Alabama, Ernie Sims went to a well respected NFL factory in FSU, etc. Without going back to look at all of their specific position coaches at the time, I think a good chunk of those guys got some quality college coaching.
I do agree that Gary has a chance to be very, very good, though. I think he will mesh well with Harbaugh's idea of competition, and I think he'll get along with Mattison, too. (I wouldn't be surprised if Mattison retires before Gary finishes his college career, though.)

Just like every recruiting writer out there, I'm not in coaches' meetings. It's simply putting together bits and pieces of evidence from here and there.

LOL. MGoBlog would murder the servers I'm using. Getting as much traffic as MGoBlog would be a good problem to have, though.
I'm considering switching to GoDaddy, Host Gator, or some other big hosting service. If anyone has any suggestions, let me know.

It surprised me a few years ago when I read something about how many NJ players make the NFL. So this bit of research wasn't quite as surprising, although 3 out of 18 from the Garden State is pretty impressive.

People have mentioned things like this to me with Firefox and iPads, but whenever I check them on those browsers/devices, they work fine for me. The site loads for me on an iPhone, Chromebook, PC, iPad, etc. I'm not quite sure how to fix the problem since it doesn't seem to be consistent.

Going back to last summer, Michigan had chances to offer Moses and did not. They have been in contact with him. However, from what I've heard, they don't think he has sincere interest in playing at Michigan.
Wolverine Devoteee will eat lemons and limes and a three-toed sloth urine Slurpee if Moses commits to Michigan.
