I also think Bilal is an upgrade over Thompson, but either one would be a nice addition. Thompson is all but Sparty bound, so hopefully these crystal ball picks come to fruition.

I always listen to the college sports station on siriusxm radio in the mornings. Former Bama QB Greg McElroy has a new show on there called The First Team. I forget the co-hosts name, but last week I caught a segment where they were discussing coaches who were on the hot seat. The first two guys they mentioned were Hoke and Muschamp. McElroy went on to say emphatically that this will be Brady Hoke's last year in AA and that the team will go 6-6, and losing every road game. Now I must say that McElroy does a great job, and he is entitled to his opinion, but 6-6 is mind boggling. Brady has to go if they end up 6-6, but i do not forsee that happening.
On the other hand, McElroy's co-host predicted Michigan to go 10-2 with losses to Sparty and OSU. Im not sure if I see 10-2, but I like this prediction a little better than 6-6. It is funny to see the disparity between these guys when it comes to predicting Michigan football. Im going with 10-3 after you can the bowl win, and a new contract extension for Hoke.

As an SRU alum, I'd be pretty happy with a win.

We bought a software program last year called Fansoft. It is pretty awesome. Everything is generated at random. You hook up the software/computer to your tv and will announce everyone's picks and keeps track of everything in a round by round format. That way you know who has been picked. It is very user friendly. You can dictate the number of rounds and choose whatever time you want in between picks. You can also input any pictures you have saved on your computer of whoever is in your draft. When that person is drafting, his/her pic will appear and it will say "insert team name" is on the clock. It's pretty cool.

Im more concerned with Weber maybe not attending than I am with Harris. Harris is not attending due to a prior commitment with his high school football team. Weber will be in Southern California on a recruiting trip. Which one of those events scares you more? I get that Harris is a decommitment and Michigan needs to get him on campus, but Weber now seems to be our #1 target at RB. Id much rather a recruit miss out on the BBQ at the Big House because he's with his high school football team as opposed to being on the beach in Cali with beautiful women everywhere. Obviously I dont blame the kid for taking a trip to USC. Who would? But as a Michigan fan, I just think Weber missing out would be more detrimental than Harris. Maybe I am just looking at it from a different perspective. Hopefully he can work it where he can go to USC and make it to the BBQ.

The ones Ive seen on operation sports are not finished yet. The guys at OS are still putting together the finishing touches on the rosters. Im guessing they will be 100% completed within a few weeks.

Forgot about Beamer. Good call. Great coach.

Pinkel is another solid pick. Also underrated in my opinion. Richt is a true class act. Very underappreciated.

Hawkins is hilarious. He's on the siriusxm college football station from time to time and doesnt disappoint.

Good pick. Cutcliffe has been outstanding. Only a matter of time before he gets offered a much bigger job.

I like Pelini, too. He's a tough SOB, and obviously has a good personality. Don nailed it though, he basically gave a big middle finger to everyone affiliated with Nebraska and they gave him a new contract. That's impressive.

I think Butch Jones will do well in Tennessee. They are still a couple years away, but they will be contendors if they remain patient.

haha thats hilarious. That's a very good book by the way. I put Leach on my list mainly for his personality and his affinity for pirates.

Mora and Riley are great choices. Riley might be one of the more underrated coaches out there. It's ashame that some people in Corvallis want him gone.

SI also states there were concerns over potential NCAA amateurism rules violations as well as questions about him qualifying academically. Either way, I wish Mudiay the best of luck. Kid has a lot of talent.

I have watched Scott play in person. He is from Hubbard, Ohio which is about 10 minutes from where I live. I coach high school football in western, Pa, and went to watch one of his games on our bye week, and that dude can play. I have seen a lot of good running backs over the last several years, and he is the best one. I've watched some other D1 running backs in the past and Scott, imo, is the best of the bunch. Im not including guys Ive seen on film, just one's I have seen in person.
I know there have been some rumblings about his grades, but man he woulda looked good in a winged helmet. Oh well, good get for Sparty. We still have Weber and Harris in the mix, so not all is lost.

Honestly, I think 10 wins is very possible. ND is losing a lot of guys on defense, and Golston might be still a little rusty after "redshirting" last year. MSU and OSU will most likely be losses, but I feel strongly that IF IF IF IF the OL comes together and Gardner limits his mistakes, this team can/should win 10 games.

I guess I will pick everyone's spring candidate...Mr Freddy Canteen. Im hoping it's Derrick Green and at least one OL. Defensively, I like the Bolden pick. I want to say Dymonte Thomas but I have not heard a word about him in quite some time. I think a realistic answer would be Frank Clark. I do not think he has had his "breakout season" yet.

I coach for a team in Western, Pa. We are in the D-10 AA league. We lost in the state semi finals to a team called South Fayette who ended up winning the AA state title. Im almost positive they are a public school.

1. I am also in favor of a 1 game alternate uniform each year. Either all white/all blue would suffice.
2. It drives me crazy when people say the following: uniformZ, MOAR, we can haz, etc
3. I love recruiting. Ace and BBrown do a great job of keeping us up to date with the crazy world of recruiting.
4. Ace and BISB are my favorite writers on this blog. No disrespect to Brian or Seth, but I just enjoy the other's articles more.
5. I have a hard time disliking Michigan State. They play so tenacious on the defensive side of the ball. I have nothing but respect for Dantonio and Narduzzi. I also love their uniforms. Reminds me of my SRU days.
6. I would give anything to have the success that Ohio St has had over the last 10+ years. Even if it required Carr to be fired a la Tressel.
7. I like Hoke. I would like Harbaugh even more...
8. If I could afford it, I would buy season tickets (or renew them) every year. Ive been to the Big House 5 times, Ive loved it more each time I was there.
9. The Michigan arrogance doesnt bother me. But, I do think a lot of us, including myself, are stuck in the past. Sometimes the arrogance isnt warranted, especially after the last two seasons. But a few bad seasons doesnt erase what UofM has done over the last 100 years.
10. Im one of those guys that is not bothered by the fact that Hoke does not wear a headset. Im also not impressed by him wearing short sleeves when it's freezing out.

I do not follow soccer, and have not watched any of the world cup. Im thinking about tuning in for saturday's game. But after reading the article on the front page about DaMarcus Beasley, is it safe to say he's the Boubacar Cissoko of the US team? Im just trying to relate it to something Im more familiar with.
