|18 hours 21 sec ago||I try to be objective, and||
I try to be objective, and maybe I'm a failure at it, but I don't see Michigan as a trash-talking team. I see more from Ohio State and Michigan State, to be sure. As for being in the top five of a conference that has only 12 teams . . . I don't really care. Teams like Purdue, Indiana, and Illinois don't have any reason to be cocky (in football), so that almost automatically takes them out of the running.

Michigan has more sacks and more interceptions this year than Alabama.

I would prefer if Urban Meyer punches Braxton Miller after he makes a bad play.

Nobody said anything questioning Malzone's arm slot, so I'm not sure why you bring it up. Regardless, I think your expectations were maybe too high going into it. Sills is rated as a 3-star for a reason (not a great athlete, not a super strong arm, etc.). Malzone isn't rated at all. Maybe you're letting four-year-old news color your views, but nobody in the current football recruiting world really thinks Sills is the bee's knees. He is a solid football prospect, though.

I see "backpeddle" used way too frequently.

I'm sure Peppers wants to win lots of games and everything, and obviously, the best program in the country over the past few years has been Alabama. But he's talked about the pass rush helping him out as a corner. Well, Countess made 6 picks this year, and Taylor made 4. At Alabama, Cyrus Jones has 2 and Deion Belue has 1; the rest of their 10 total picks were made by safeties and linebackers.

I'm pretty sure "symantics" isn't the problem.
|22 hours 26 min ago||Again, Michigan recruits||
Again, Michigan recruits 130-200 players every single year, and only ~20 can come to Michigan in any given class. By definition, the vast majority of "recruiting news" is going to be negative for Michigan.
|22 hours 29 min ago||Ace and I argued about this||
Ace and I argued about this on Twitter last weekend. I doubt Meyer would "not start Hall" only to insert him on play #2. He'll probably miss at least a series, maybe the first quarter. I think a fair punishment would be to suspend him for a quarter or maybe a half. NFL players get fined $10,000 for the middle finger, so I don't think it's out of line to expect college players to miss a little bit of playing time.

"The WR should never outshine the QB that's supposed to be a high D-1 recruit."
Huh? I don't even know what that means. Who made that rule? Doesn't it matter that the receiver is a high D-I recruit also?
Neither QB's film blows me away, but I don't see how you come away from their film thinking that Sills is a 3-star and Malzone is a 4-star. Is it because Malzone has more wide open receivers running around? Neither has a Howitzer for an arm, and neither is a great "athlete." And while Malzone certainly has more offers coming his way (rather than just BGSU), the current offer list of Sills (Clemson, Michigan, USC, etc.) is probably a clue that he has something Malzone lacks.

Every offer is taking a big leap of faith. Especially quarterbacks. You haven't yet seen what a Borges-recruited quarterback can do throughout his career.
It honestly seems like every post I see from you involves bitching about Al Borges. I'm sure that's not the case - and I don't care enough to actually research it - but it's getting old quickly.

You can't really "ignore" the comments because then you run the risk of losing touch with your readers. And if you don't do the things your readers want or keep your finger on the pulse of your consumers, that's a bad business decision.

All that and no mention of Nefarious Eduardo? I am disappoint.

Countess wasn't thrown at a ton, either.

Hmph. I guess he wants to hand out jersey numbers based on body shape.
|2 days 21 hours ago||Nobody's claiming Marlin||
Nobody's claiming Marlin Jackson wasn't good. But statistically, he and Countess aren't far off. The only year he arguably had better stats than Countess was his sophomore year in 2002, when Jackson had 51 tackles, 5 tackles for loss, 1 sack, 3 interceptions (1 TD), and 15 pass breakups. With one game left, Countess has 42 tackles for loss, 2 tackles for loss, 6 interceptions (1 TD), and 4 pass breakups. He tied for #4 nationally in interceptions and was #3 in return yardage. Jackson's junior and senior seasons didn't feature great numbers.
So I'm putting them in the same conversation, whether you think they belong together or not. Just because Marlin Jackson played 10 years and we're nostalgic about him doesn't mean he was automatically better than Countess.

I really doubt they would give it to Darboh, who barely played as a freshman and then missed this year due to injury. If any other WR gets a Legends jersey, I imagine it would be Chesson.

Yes, he redshirted, and he's been practicing at H-back.

Why is the #21 more fitting for Gallon than the #1?

If they give them out, my guess would be...
#11 - Jarrod Wilson
#21 - Devin Funchess
#87 - Jake Butt
|2 days 22 hours ago||I don't necessarily believe||
I don't necessarily believe that it should be given it out every year. For example, who was good enough to represent the #1 in 2008 and 2009? But I think Roundtree could have earned it with his 2010 season, and I think Gallon should have earned it last year.
|2 days 22 hours ago||Interceptions aren't||
Interceptions aren't everything, but Jackson had 3, 3, 2, and 1 interceptions in his career for a total of 9. And that was generally with more talent around him than I think Countess has now. Now, Jackson had the versatility to play safety and was a first round pick, but as a college player, I'm not sure he was that much better than Countess.
|3 days 20 min ago||I'm okay with making players||
I'm okay with making players earn it, but the standards for "earning it" are too high. Don't want to give it to him as a freshman? That's fine. But Blake Countess has done enough to earn the #2, Jeremy Gallon did enough to earn the #1 for this year, etc.

I get the feeling some of you are waiting for a unanimous All-American underclassman to announce a return for his senior year before you're willing to give out the #1 or #2 jersey.

Yes, he's considering visits to Notre Dame and Michigan.
