|22 hours 9 min ago||It's a good thing they're taking an oversea trip||
because they have a lot of freshmen and need to find someone who will take the rein on offense. We know that it'd be LeVert being the 1st option with Walton/Irvin getting the 2nd/3rd option respectively. The learning curve will be less steeper by the time the season starts because they already practiced and had 2 games of experience under their belt. That is an huge asset for the development.
I expect Michigan to come out with more of a smoother start than last year where they struggled to find their offensive identity before Nik took over as the #1 option.
The offense will be completely different than what you seen from last year because of the personnel and that may be a good thing because it gives opposing team more to think about on scouting Michigan.
|22 hours 13 min ago||I don't think that MAAR||
will redshirt simply because they need another G off the bench along with Spike. He's their 4th ball handler and is a slasher/creator for the team. He draws fouls and reportely plays good defense.
|2 days 12 hours ago||They still have||
Drummond, Waynes, Jones and Calhoun. All studs.
|2 days 13 hours ago||It's for recruiting||
recruits love this shit
|2 days 14 hours ago||That makes MSU||
a big favorite to win B1G East....
|2 days 21 hours ago||Golson||
was a true freshman starting for ND. It's much tougher to come out of the gate guns blazing as a true freshman at QB. Golson have a year of experience under his belt and had a year to work on his mechanics with a QB coach. People forget that he was the #1 QB coming out of high school so he has the talent to be a bondafide QB.
Golson has gotten better and better as the season goes on and I wouldn't be surprised if he comes out on fire this season.
|3 days 13 hours ago||Right now?||
I can only say Ryan, Clark and Countess. That's it. The rest are based on potential.
|3 days 16 hours ago||Still has studs coming back||
like Calhoun, Waynes, Drummond and Jones.
|3 days 22 hours ago||Iowa had NFL defensive player||
drafted. Christian Kirksey, and Anthony Hitchens. Wisconsin had Beau Allen, Chris Borland, and Dezmen Southward drafted. Borland is one of the better LB in the country and is expected to start at ILB replacing Bowman who is currently injured.
Michigan was 40th in the country on defense according to football outsiders: http://www.footballoutsiders.com/stats/feiplus
|4 days 43 min ago||Elite? Let's just take it||
Elite? Let's just take it easy. Top 25 should be a realistic expectation but elite? They're still ways to go. Only one difference maker on that unit which is Jake Ryan who is still learning how to play MLB. Elite defense has several players who can play on Sunday right now.

|5 days 16 hours ago||Would like to see data of players drafted in the last 5 years||
or so to get a better feel of how well they're sending players to the NFL for the draft. I know that Michigan has to be at the bottom in terms of the numbers of players drafted.
|5 days 23 hours ago||Difference||
is JB is a much better coach than Crean. Michigan lost a lot in the past few years like Morris, Burke, THJ, etc. yet they don't miss a beat. I trust in JB more than Crean.
|5 days 23 hours ago||The mission/purpose for the athletic department||
is to provide for all of the student-athletes. This falls under the umbrella of providing for the student-athletes.
If you don't want to pay a lot of money for football games, just stay home instead.
|5 days 23 hours ago||Saying WR is stacked||
is based on potential. No matter how you slice it, it's going to be difficult to replace Gallon's production. Hard to say that they're stacked if they're not proven other than Funchess.
|6 days 2 hours ago||JB is one of the coach where||
I don't have to worry about player development. The Italy trip will be a huge beneficial for the team and it came at a perfect time for them to take a trip. The early season problems due to youth will be mitigated by the face they already had practices and games at Italy.

if Moose signs the QO. He'll play him at the 4 and sometimes the 5 if he wants to go small. He will refuse to play Smith at the 3.
|1 week 1 day ago||SVG||
won't play Smith at SF one single minute. If any, Smith is more likely to play C than at SF under SVG. SVG wants shooters at all time.
|1 week 1 day ago||I'm talking about||
This off-season, not next off-season. Moose hasn't signed the qualifying offer so he is still a RFA.
|1 week 1 day ago||Problem is Moose||
Is a RFA so even if a team offered him a max, the Pistons will match that offer. There is a reason why teams don't go after RFA bc it screws up their timeline of forming together a team and could lose another potential FA in the process.
|1 week 1 day ago||I'm not surprised by it||
To be honest, I've been saying it take 3 years for it to show the effect of NC appearance. It'd be 2016, not 2015 that we will see Michigan reaping the benefit of the NC run.
|1 week 1 day ago||to be fair||
Indiana offense has been doing it to everybody all year long. They're the best offense in the conference by a wide margin.
|1 week 1 day ago||I have a hard time believing that||
OSU would be the most hated team in the state of Michigan.
I just don't care for OSU basketball like I do for OSU football. MSU, on the other hand, I care way more about it in basketball than in football.
|1 week 2 days ago||MSU still has the best defense||
In B1G bc if Narduzzi. They also have players who will play on Sunday like Drummond, Waynes, Calhoun, Jones, etc. that's more than the current draft eligible Michigan players right now.
|1 week 2 days ago||Basketball recruiting is worse||
Most kids get recruited at either 8th or 9th grade.
|1 week 4 days ago||It is not BS||
Trust me, I know a few recruits committed for the uniforms.
It is not BS because it is a huge factor into recruiting whether you want to admit it or not.
I was there when football coaches told one recruit that they're in the process of getting a new uniform and their interest was piqued. They were very curious and wanted to see. They kept telling him that they won't show it until before season starts on August practice. That recruit committed a week later. Not joking.
|1 week 4 days ago||Working in sports industry||
uniforms does matter to recruiting. Recruits love uniforms and it is a big factor into their decision making.
It is stupid as in uniform matters in recruiting but it's the reality of recruiting.
Uniforms and Facilities plus chances of going to NFL matters more to recruits than anything.
|1 week 4 days ago||He looked||
Significantly thicker on the upper body which is good for him. Maybe it'll help him protect his upper body from getting hurt more like at Michigan.
|1 week 4 days ago||To be honest||
I liked the helmet
|1 week 5 days ago||Switch out Langford||
and replace him with Battle. That'd be a great haul for JB.
|1 week 6 days ago||No, I'm saying||
that coaches has been on them the longest that it's hard for them to pick up new teams this late in the process when they're JR and SR. 4 years ago, class of 2014 and 2015 has already has their top 5 schools and Michigan wasn't nationally prominent.
It's 2016 that Michigan should really make noise. I have talked to a few D1 college coaches. They said it's much easier to recruit young kids from 8th/9th grade when they're about to form their own opinion of how good of a school they are. They spend time building relationships that it's nearly impossible to get 4* and 5* recruits especially 5* where they have blue blood programs going after them.
