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.
|1 day 14 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.

I have no clue what you're talking about, and I'm not going to continue with this conversation.
|1 day 16 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.
|1 day 17 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.
|2 days 11 hours ago||Au contraire. Hoke's "biggest||
Hoke's "biggest mistake" when it came to recruiting the quarterback position was not taking even a single quarterback in the 2012 class. Bellomy was a 2011 recruit, while Morris was a 2013 guy.
|2 days 16 hours ago||I don't think Michigan will||
I don't think Michigan will get to a class size of 18-20. Too many departures would have to take place in the meantime for that to happen.
|2 days 16 hours ago||Anybody with any kind of||
Anybody with any kind of scholarship counts against the football team's number if they are on the football team. Otherwise, nothing would be stopping Michigan from giving academic scholarships, etc. to kids just to get them to play football.
If Wheatley were to attend Michigan as purely a student, he could do so for free because of his dad's employment with the university.
But if he attends Michigan and plays football, there will only be 84 other scholarships available.

I agree that they're underwhelming, but I don't think he had much of anyone to throw to, either. He's a big fish in a small pond.
|2 days 19 hours ago||Ummmm...okay.||
|2 days 21 hours ago||Lewis seems bound for Miami.||
Lewis seems bound for Miami. Lucier-South is UCLA unless Jim Mora disappears. Kelly has been somewhat wishy-washy. Not that it's a criticism, but I thought he would have committed SOMEWHERE by now, whether it's Michigan, Michigan State, Tennessee, etc.
|2 days 21 hours ago||From what I've seen of New||
From what I've seen of New Mexico football, I would agree. There's just not a whole lot of talent, size, speed, etc. Maybe Gentry is a quick learner, but he does seem to excel partly because of the guys he's playing against.
|2 days 21 hours ago||Back when I did my scouting||
Back when I did my scouting reports on 2015 quarterbacks, I ranked Gentry at #4 on my list of most desired quarterbacks (LINK). So this would be a pretty good development if Harbaugh were able to flip him from the Longhorns. I think my biggest concern watching his senior film is that the ball doesn't come out on time often enough. If you watch Malzone's film, that kid seems to know the offense inside and out, where the coverages are, etc. Gentry seems to be more of a freelancer.

Quarterback might not be HIS specialty, but he did recruit and develop Teddy Bridgewater into a first round pick.

It's no more of an amateur operation than Rivals, Scout, etc. And Wolverine 247 is actually pretty good with the information.
|3 days 12 hours ago||Rutgers has actually done a||
Rutgers has actually done a decent job of pulling in home-state talent the past few years - Nadir Barnwell, Darius Hamilton, Quanzell Lambert, Savon Huggins, Miles Shuler, Marquise Wright, etc. They could do better, and not all of those guys have been studs. But I have been surprised that some of those guys haven't been pulled away by out-of-state schools. The same thing goes for Maryland.
I don't think Gary will end up at Rutgers, though.
