|6 days 5 hours ago||Perhaps some further context for you on Swenson||
I was not thrilled either when I read about the circumstances surrounding Swenson's decommit a couple of weeks ago. I immediately thought, as an alum, that this is not how I want my school's coach to treat high school kids. It looks bad and is certainly ammo for negative recruiting, just not how Michigan rolls.
However, there are always at least two sides to every story. Your comment sounds like you don't know what has been reported about the communication between the staff and Swenson and his family. Given the nature of the whole recruiting game on both sides, recruiter and recruitee, I highly doubt Harbaugh & Co. left Swenson in the dark until the 11th hour.

The question was from Angelique Chengelis, the U of M beat writer for the DetNews. She acknowledged that she'd had a lapse, was thinking only of Onwenu, and momentarily forgot about Hill and Nordin. She would never write an article or column suggesting either of those things.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||Better dead than red.||
There was less red in the stadium today than the past 3 home OSU games, but not so much less that they couldn't do their insufferable "look, we can spell a four-letter word" cheer. When that happens, I just seethe, but there's not much to do about it when our D is getting ripped to shreds.
Most blocks of red were in the south end zone, but there was an unusual block of red in the north end zone. The athletic dept sent a few reps from marketing to look into how those people got their tickets - all the OSU fans bought them from season ticket holders. That is an utter disgrace.

Funny, I wonder why I've never seen that in a women's rest room. /s

Reportedly, Cook is not well-liked on campus. When your 3-year starter, NFL prospect QB is not a team captain, that says something.
|15 weeks 4 days ago||This ^^^ x 1000||
Amen! The MSU fanbase has always wanted to be the rival we pay most attention to. They were for decades the little brother seeking attention from the big brother, whose eyes were always turned toward Columbus or South Bend. Now they have succeeded in getting us to pay attention to them. But they have always and will always measure their success by Michigan's failure, especially in our head-to-head games. Dantonio's hate for Michigan is just an extension of the same.
Hate isn't the opposite of love; indifference is. I liked it better when we were indifferent to them. Let's get back to that.

Agree, just better to keep it in the family. The next headline we'll be reading is, "Beilein denies providing recruits with girls or alcohol". I don't like the idea that he might even have to address the question.

You are a silly goose.
Spencer Hall is a Florida grad and if you read EDSBS, he often says "we" when referring to UF. EDSBS is thus a Florida-affiliated blog, which is what the article said.
Example: his list of "Offseason Reentry Tips" http://www.everydayshouldbesaturday.com/2015/1/16/7559261/offseason-re-entry-tips

Romney left Bain in February 1999 to run the Salt Lake City Olympics. Brandon was appointed CEO of Domino's in March 1999.

|4 years 3 weeks ago||Also this postgame Izzo quote from Wojo's column||
"Look, nobody picked us to do anything, so there's no pressure."
What? There are no goals or aspirations of personal excellence unless they're picked to do something? Just... what? Tell that to the RCMB posters whose heads are in a thousand bloody pieces.
I've heard John U. Bacon's speech in his "Bo's Lasting Lessons" tour, in which he says that Izzo is cut from the same mold as Bo. I really would like to believe that, imitation being the sincerest form of flattery. I keep looking and listening for it, but I just don't see it. I've lost a lot of respect for Izzo because I think he doesn't handle losing well.

For anyone who lives in western Wayne County/11th district, Rep. Thad McCotter is against it.
But it doesn't hurt to call or email and let him know you appreciate his opposition and his constitutents agree.
Work on Stabenow and Levin.
|4 years 3 weeks ago||Agreed. U2 played at Spartan||
Agreed. U2 played at Spartan Stadium last summer after Michigan said no because the Regents wouldn't allow alcohol sales in Michigan Stadium. There's no way the NHL would put on an alcohol-free game, so they must be paying a premium for it.

for the posbang! Go Blue, great win!
|4 years 3 weeks ago||I can't believe this doesn't have its own thread yet||
Since I can't start one. But does a real Michigan man do this?
|4 years 3 weeks ago||Wrong.||
Brandon was never going to offer either Harbaugh or Miles. At the time, LSU was under investigation by the NCAA for Miles' recruitment of a kid out of Sacramento, for which the NCAA found major violations last summer that cost LSU 2 scholarships and a year of probation. With Michigan being on probation, Brandon wasn't touching Miles with a 1,200 mile pole.
Brandon did his due diligence on Harbaugh too and found baggage too big to bring to Michigan. So he never offered Harbaugh either. Harbaugh made it clear that the NFL was his goal, and the 49ers obliged.
Brandon made only one offer, to our current coach. Hoke wasn't #3, he was #1.
|4 years 3 weeks ago||It's more than etiquette, it's about NCAA regs too.||
You would be wise to read and learn about the NCAA's definition of "booster" and "representative of the University of Michigan" in the Athletic Department's compliance page on the mgoblue website. If you give any money to the athletic department, you're a booster. You can't contact recruits or their families (email, phone, etc.) beyond saying hi. Here's the link:
|4 years 3 weeks ago||Bull. He threw Michigan under the bus.||
Bull. He threw Michigan under the bus to boost his credibility with his new employer and its alumni and donors, and he did it in a public forum. Sorry, that's not what I would expect from a "Michigan man". He also wouldn't have done it if Bo were still alive, because he knew damn well that Bo would have been on the next plane to Palo Alto to kick his ass. Jamie Morris told Harbaugh to "lose my phone number."
And you're right, the story was almost ignored nationally ... almost. It was not ignored in Ann Arbor or the Detroit newspapers. Hart may have revived the story, but that wasn't the first time that anyone at Michigan had heard of it.
|4 years 3 weeks ago||Save your prediction||
Harbaugh is a helluva coach, no doubt, but he has a closet full of skeletons that Michigan wants no part of. And if Hoke is here for 10 years or longer, Jim will be in his late 50s, early 60s by then. Presumably, he'll continue to be successful at the 49ers and will be making the kind of money Michigan could or would never pay him.
|4 years 7 weeks ago||Stop armchair doctors||
Restless legs syndrome is not just an expression, it's a real neurological condition that causes an uncontrollable need to move the legs to calm sensations of creeping, tingling or pain. How completely irresponsible for anyone here to speculate that Coach suffers from what can be a debilitating medical condition.
He was bouncing his legs, which lots of people do. His hands were in his lap, so his arms were bouncing too.
Quit the unqualified, armchair diagnoses. It is destructive.
|4 years 8 weeks ago||There is a season||
Time and place. Nothing wrong with visiting where you've been but not at the Bust. The Bust is for celebrating the seniors on the team and to give them their M rings, which Desmond should know. Many of those seniors were brought to Michigan by Rodriguez, and for that, we should be grateful.
Just because 21 had a platform doesn't mean it was appropriate to use it. This wasn't the time or the place.

Hemingway was the intended receiver. Koger saw something in the coverage and changed his route.

|4 years 10 weeks ago||You mean Herbie the Buckeye?||
Herbstreit is a Buckeye, and also an ESPN colleague of Meyer. Of course he's going to hype Meyer. Funny how he broke the Miles to Michigan story in 2007, but uttered nary a peep about Meyer to OSU.
I think Meyer's immediate success will depend on whether the NCAA has any credibility left whatsoever. IME, it has none since it took the failure to monitor off the table. If the NCAA has any cojones and spanks OSU for its casual, I-dare-you-NCAA attitude, which it should, then Meyer's recruiting might be handicapped for a couple of years. Time will tell.
|4 years 10 weeks ago||You don't remember it||
but Martin lined up several times on the end of the line and drop into coverage. I noticed it on OSU's last two drives in the 4th.
