Drake Johnson is the only RB on this team that has shown us anything at all.
I don't believe vision is something that can truly be taught, and I haven't seen anything to indicate that Green or Smith have it.

why people trust rivals, scout, 247, etc over JIM MOTHERFUCKING HARBAUGH WHO HAS COACHED IN THE GODDAMN SUPERBOWL is a complete mystery to me.
if starzzz rule the gridiron, how do you explain Hoke and RR's teams having their asses handed to them by MSU?

Are you an alternate reality version of me?

He's a high school coach. A big part of his job is to help his kids get scholarships to the school of their choosing, even when that school is OSU.
The homerism blinders are strong here....

"Having a great coach doesn't mean that our 4-star players will all of a sudden be better than other schools' 3-star players just because."
That is definitely true; however a randomly chosen player who was a 4star recruit is quite likely to have a higher physical ceiling than a randomly chosen player who was a 3star recruit. Recruiting rankings are not all-important, but they aren't insignificant either. We shouldn't expect guys to reach their ceilings overnight, but we should expect elite coaching to speed that process significantly.
Another thing that's important to remember is that it makes a difference as a freshman practicing with upperclassman who have never had a great season vs. practicing with upperclassmen who know what it feels like and what it takes to win games.
I agree with most of your post FWIW, just wanted to get specific on something that isn't strictly either/or.
|14 weeks 1 day ago||Haha, I wonder how much that||
Haha, I wonder how much that quote is based on what he expects of Wagner vs. knowing that Beilein like to focus on a player's shot and defense in year 1 and then creating shots for themselves and others in year 2. Of course it's the former, but the thought is amusing.

there's a difference between a single 6-7 season after a decade of excellence vs a 5-7 season after... whatever this has been
a single down year doesn't impact your recruiting, player development, team morale, expectations, etc etc in the same way that sustained mediocrity does

Advocating for our football coach's brother in law to be fired from his job is probably not the classiest move. The post was informative & entertaining otherwise.

The reason you see linemen going high is because of the amount of dropoff between #1 and #2.

Coach Heck is a pretty good receivers coach. Don't forget that this was Funchess's first full season ever as a wide receiver. I think people are going to be surprised when he gets to the NFL and we all get to see just why his stock was so high.

stealing deprives the owner of the original. copying does not.
equating copying with stealing has been a great PR success for the entertainment industry, but the comparison is not really valid.

Someone who sells information should have *zero* expectation that said information will remain secret or valuable after its sale. The flow of simple strings of 1s and 0s *cannot* be controlled, and that is just a practical fact regardless of what your moral stance on intellectual property is. The only safe secrets are those known to a single individual.

Points come and go, man.
However if you keep complaining about it, it's only going to get worse.
I really wouldn't worry too much. This post is a little tasteless (no offense Don, just stating the perception) and will likely be taken down.
Welcome to the board

Does it really need to be almost 10gb? I was hoping to watch it before next week
Regardless, thank you for posting this

in b4, during, & after lots and lots of angry Hoke bashers...
In my opinion Hecklinksi was one of the better parts of coach Hoke's staff. He helped Gallon post the best season (by yardage) of any Michigan receiver ever as his position coach for 3 years, and he did a Heck of a job as recruiting coordinator as well.
It's easy for people to get that there's more to a job than whether it's division I, II, or III. It's unfortunate that so many people can only see the $$ and the prestige. You also have to take into account the culture, the location, what the move means for the coach's family, etc etc. I expect that coach Heck will do very well at CSU - Pueblo.

I mean it's simple right. Just throw it deep to Funchess!
My offense in Madden averages like, 12 yards per play. I totally would have done a better job running the team than Brady Hoke did last season
