The nutty Michigan coverage isn't so much about Harbaugh as it is a signal to the Big Ten that Fox wants to party.

Call ahead and make sure they're showing it. It's a little off the strip but well worth it. The setup is basically a movie theater with everyone gambling on the game(s) and going nuts. I was there for AFC/NFC Championships and it was awesome.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||I agree with all of your points||
But...managing players is difficult whether they are 3, 4, or 5 star players. I don't buy the argument that it's harder to manage 5 star kids than it is 3 stars. And even if that were true, it still doesn't justify avoiding 5 stars.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||I'm not||
I'm not saying that. I am not relying on my own knowledge, obviously. I'm not saying I'm a better judge of talent than Harbaugh, obviously. I'm saying that it is naive to think that dozens of big time coaches are wrong every time and Harbaugh is right every time. Again, everyone is acting like these no star players have traits and abilities that the higher ranked guys don't. Why not recruit the guy who is the same size, faster, more athletic, and more highly regarded by every other coach in America, and if you don't get him, offer the less heralded guy?
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Not persuasive||
This is not persuasive. Don't recruit good players because Urban had trouble "controlling" them? Comical.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||And 4/5 stars don't have those frames?||
Maybe a few of the highly ranked players have primadonna issues. Fine. Avoid them. It still doesn't make sense to be the best offer on a kid's board -- for 10 different class members.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Ugh||
Your point implies that you think Harbaugh sees something in these no names that other coaches don't. I'm not relying on Allen Trieu. I'm relying on the fact that they don't have offers from Purdue, let alone Saban.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||You actually proved my point||
Of that makeshift last minute RR/Hoke class with many 3-stars, we had 2 guys drafted.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||3 players?||
So 3 of our players would have started for Alabama last year? That's your point? Your point about Pipkins has already been addressed -- it is irrelevant.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||3-stars||
Everyone can neg me until I am sent to Bolivia. I don't care. A class - even a big class - with 15-20 3-stars is a major problem. The fact that several of those 3-stars only got a ranking because they accepted an offer from Michigan is worse. Our 2016 class is only going to be ranked remotely high because of its volume.
|17 weeks 8 hours ago||Really not close to what the texts say||
The texts say that McNally is there to ensure that the refs don't re-inflate the balls way above 12.5 if they come in at 12.4
|17 weeks 6 days ago||Sounds like proof to me that recruiting rankings are bullshit||

|31 weeks 6 days ago||It's very simple||
If the Patriots did something to the balls after the ref inspection, it's cheating, and Tom surely knew. If not, it's not cheating. Either way it's only a big deal as a matter of principle, and not of practical significance.

The best part of this game is that the write up did not use the word "stanza."
|33 weeks 4 days ago||M would do the same thing||
This doesn't constitute "Spart-ing" at all. Burning couches or blowing 4th quarter leads due to personal fouls constitutes "Spart-ing". Stupid post.

Is John Morton former Lion "Johnny Morton"? Went to USC...BLAH blah blah?
|36 weeks 2 days ago||Celebrate?||
Does anyone really think Jim Harbaugh gives a flying fuck about his birthday? That alone undermines this guy's credibility. I think he's coming, but come on!
|40 weeks 1 day ago||Great game. We will be very||
Great game. We will be very good and contend for the B10 Championship. However, we will need a charmed draw in the tourney to make the FF. Our DREB is atrocious. I can't even imagine playing a team like Kentucky or Duke with lots of athletic length. Hopefully we can avoid those types of teams. Doyle showed some promise again though, at least.
|42 weeks 3 days ago||"Preference"?||
Are you serious?!?!?!?!?!?! Michigan should crawl on its knees until it has nothing but bone and then keep borrowing skin until there isn't any left and then, as nothing but a bloody skeleton, offer Jim Harbaugh $20 million dollars per year. "PREFERENCE"?!!?!?!?!?!?!?!
|43 weeks 22 hours ago||This article is utterly worthless||
Not criticizing the OP, but this article says nothing. He just recited facts every person knows.
|43 weeks 5 days ago||DH is right||
He's correct that the decision is based on the failure of the football program during his tenure. Why is everyone so defensive about that? It's the same at dozens of other schools: if your biggest revenue-generating sport sucks, the AD gets fired.
|44 weeks 4 days ago||Sad||
Reflection of our program. Petty. Pathetic. Inferior. Childish. The same adjectives apply to Delano Hill's personal foul early in the game: he was out of position and got trucked by a QB. TRUCKED. And because he was out of position and got trucked, he was the one getting shit-talked and he reacted like a little kid. Had he been in position, and had he fitted up Cook and drilled him (instead of getting trucked), like you should any QB who leaves the pocket, there would have been no shit talking from Cook, and Hill would not have had to instinctively push Cook when Cook got in his face. How's that for a sentence.
|44 weeks 5 days ago||You are largely correct but...||
The coaches don't teach DG to throw a five yard hitch into the ground to put us in 3rd and 11, or to throw 5 yard out patterns at guys' back hips, or to throw bubble screens high and behind guys, or to throw slants low, or to throw a middle screen like an option pitch into a vacant space with only an MSU player, or to float a drag route into a guy standing there waiting to either decapitate the WR or intercept it for a TD, or deep balls on the inside shoulder of a guy being covered inside-our. The coaches can't fix those problems no matter what. Sorry. I wish the guy the best in life.

Be banned. People on this site have adult conversations. Grow up or join another fanbase where you fit in, because you don't here.
|47 weeks 3 days ago||Why do you care?||
He wins. His college players love him. End of story. If he clashes with other egotists, who cares. Come on. Anyone who claims they don't want Harbaugh because of personality reasons should just keep rooting for Hoke to stay on. And therefore keep rooting to never be good (but recruit guys who aren't felons but who nonetheless would love JH equally).

Can someone explain to me how the practice of robbing any future star from having their own place in M football history in the form of a retired jersey number is a good thing? I think it is a stupid idea designed to sell more jerseys, and the significance of those jersey numbers is undermined or devalued more often than it ever should be (see Countess, Blake vs. ND; or Avery, Courtney, in general; or Gardner, Devin, in general).
|48 weeks 4 days ago||No one knows||
Whether Shane was concussed. Until we know that we shouldn't be firing anyone (at least for that reason). What should have happened is the trainer should have given him a concussion test. Shane could have been totally fine though mentally, and I thought he wobbled because his ankle gave out on him. It wasn't clear at all that he was woozy. On the other hand, the ankle thing is a non-issue. It's a sprained ankle. People play on sprained ankles all the time. I would be disappointed if our starting QB DIDN'T stay in for a bit with a sprained ankle. Should Hoke have been more cautious? Yes. Was Shane "obviously" concussed? We don't know.
|48 weeks 4 days ago||Any info on Shane?||
Or are we all just assuming he was severely concussed? His ankle was clearly fucked. And they showed him several times talking to other guys on the bench normally, with his ankle under an ice pack. It's very possible that he couldn't stand bc of his ankle. Look, Hoke should be fired Monday, but let's not all act like a bunch of fucking moms here. We have no clue whether Shane had a concussion or whether he had a sore ankle. Isaih thomas had a sore ankle in the 3rd quarter of the '88 finals and nobody thought chuck daly should have been fired.
|48 weeks 4 days ago||You are dead wrong||
So, as far as Lloyd goes, you are all high. Lloyd won 10 games in 2004 and was a pube away from winning the rose bowl against Vince young, who won the NC with basically the same team the next year. 2 years later, he was 11-0 going into the OSU game and probably would have played for the NC had crable not had a dubious late-hit penalty called on him. He retired one year later after beating the team that straddled that loss with 2 NC's. WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT

The fact that Chip Kelly is also a former PAC-12 coach, idiot writer of dumb article.
