Rudock can't pooch punt.
Actually, I hope you are right.

if Brian has already stated he does not want babe photos on the site, what makes you think type of thread would be appropriate? There are plenty of other places on the internet for this.

What was it about OK State's scheme that made it a better fit for Furman? Serious question.
|2 weeks 8 hours ago||Your interpretation may be correct, but, on the other hand....||

I hadn't thought of it that way.

Interesting observation about whether grad school admissions might be easier at some schools than others. I suspect that grad school admissions departments at your top schools may be more insluated from pressure from the athletic departments to admit borderline candidates. Even if he is offered a football scholarship for his final year of eligibility, he may not be able to get admitted into ND grad school especially with his blemished academic record.

Why is this considered off topic?

|5 weeks 15 hours ago||Huh?||
Serious question. What platform are you referring to when you say new comments bringing the thread back to the top? Is that a Twitter thing? I've never been able to figure out an efficient way to determine if someone responded to one of my posts.

I was drunk.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||doubtful||
I doubt anyone affiliated with the coaching staff would ever tweet about a new recruit. Bad form and potentially a rule violation to comment on individual recruits until after the LOIs are signed.

Good question. I will admit that I did have some ambivalence about Jim Harbaugh becaues of all stories coming out about how he alienated the 49ers players with his intensity. I grew up in a military household, and tend not to respond well to screaming authoritation drill seargeant approaches. I more related to Brady Hoke's personna. However, I have progressively warmed up to Jim Harbaugh as I've watched the video clips and reading the news stories because I get this sense he being genuine in how he presents himself publicly. He really is that intense and enthusiastic and doesn't put up with other's bullshit. it is not an act. Space Coyote makes this point above about a coach just being himself. I get that sense from Harbaugh and I like it.
One caveat I would make for the more screamer/demonstrative types is that sometimes they are not taking accountability for their own emotional shit and are vomiting it out on others around them. The purple-faced Brian Kelley comes to mind. Contrast to Brady Hoke's approach when Hagrup wiffed the punt in the 2011 Ohio game. So, being yourself doesn't justify being a dick in my mind.

|6 weeks 2 days ago||Hey Kentucky pickers -- did you even watch the video?||
He goes on for some time about how important Cal's academic reputation is. He has said similar things about the draw of Michigan's academic reputation. I don't get why so many commenters assume that, becauses he could go to the Kentucky one-and-done semi-pro team, that he will do so. Even if he leaves college early to go to the NBA, that is still one to two years of classes he will be taking to better himself. Plus, he could always complete his degree later in life. At the same time, while Kentucky does not have the same academic pedigree, they clearly have a strong track record recently of NBA draft picks. The Georgia schools would let him play closer to home. As he says, he is weighing his options. It seems like this guy is being seriously stereotyped by several commenters in this thread without actually listening to what he is saying.

Perhaps even more imprtant than the academics, Hatch would have access to (I assume) free medical care and rehab at UM's world class medical facilities.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||so....||
which one was the best? please start a new thread.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Welcome!||
|7 weeks 2 days ago||yes!||
|7 weeks 2 days ago||I must have missed that game.||
I had to clip my nails.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Agreed on sophomore year||
I am referring to Alex's projection of Irvin out to THJ's junior year.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||like the Hardaway comparison||
Really good analysis Alex. I like the THJr comparison and hope it pans out. I seem to remember THJr becoming Michigan's shut down permimeter defender, whch was a critical contribution that doesn't show up much in the stat lines, as well as a solid rebounder. I assume we will be looking more to MAAR to fill that defender role on this team. Even with Irvin's uptick in assists and defensive rebounding, I would probably still give THJr the edge at this point. Then again, THjr has become an established NBA player, so, yeah, candy store.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Yeah, I agree||
For me, it is more of a loyalty thing to the current players. Caris is already a UM student athlete who I have enjoyed immensely watching play and develop. His growth and development under Beilin exemplifies why I find Michigan BB so much more enjoyable than watching a semi-pro team like Kentucky.
With that said, I've also been impressed with the snippets I've read on the news about Jaylen Brown. I don't think we can just assume he is a one-and-done because he is so talented, as evidenced by his interest in the Michigan academics. Perhaps I am reading too much into this, but I remember reading an article about his yoga practice, and he seems to have a level of self-awareness that is not typical for someone his age. I could see why he might be drawn to Ann Arbor.

I'm liking him at fullback.
