All right. I was kinda curious.

How did Rivals find out about Umbig11? Were they reading some of the posts on here by umbig11?
Did umbig11 just go to Rivals and apply for a position as an UofM sports insider?
|16 hours 53 min ago||I get your point if you're||
I get your point if you're suggesting that teams want good players period. Though there are hundreds of 4 star recruits with talent that varies to different degrees.
They aren't all just wanted period by every school. A program like Michigan could easily not be that interested in taking certain 4 star recruits.
I'm sure Harbaugh is judging them by their talent more than their star ranking.
|17 hours 41 min ago||I was never that overly||
I was never that overly thrilled about Hebert, but he seemed like a good oline player to have in this class of recruits.
Though many of us were under the impression that he was kinda accepted in order to get his teammate Slaton more interested in coming to Michigan.
I'm not suggesting that we didn't really want Hebert, but I think we were after Slaton a little bit more.
A lot of us felt Hebert could possibly help us get Slaton.

I don't believe Wheatley wanted to leave the NFL. He was kinda forced out because the head coach he was working for abruptly left the team.
The same guy got another head coaching position. Wheatley likes him and wants to rejoin him in the NFL.
The guy must obviously like Wheatley too.
Some people are calling it a questionable career move. Though they're disregarding the personal connection and the fact that Wheatley probably prefers being in the NFL.

Well, I'm glad you stepped in and cleared that up. Some of us would've had no way of knowing whether that post was correct about your members receiving information suggesting Harbaugh pushed these coaches out.

I wasn't really trying to decipher anything. I was just having a little fun with the kid's choice of words in his apparent comment.
My post was purely sarcasm.

Am I missing something here? I mean, what difference is there in leading by a big margin and leading by a huge margin?
Somebody tell me something.

The refs felt that they might as well screw us a little bit more.

They're getting hot from the three point line and we're getting cold from long distance.

One ref looked like he was going to call that foul on us. He had his hand up like he was ready to award the and one.

Heat check by Zak.

Yeah, you're right. I mean, all of the WRs behind Darboh, Chesson and Perry had questionable talent or lack of experience.
Therefore, it probably wasn't in our best interest to have them on the field too often for more spread formations.
|6 days 27 sec ago||I'm all for having a lot of||
I'm all for having a lot of talented WRs on our team. Though Harbaugh has to change his offensive mentality for us to really take advantage of having these guys.
I don't think some people in our fan base pay much attention to how many one and two WR formations we run during the course of a game.
We don't spread the field often with a bunch of WRs and slot guys aren't a major part of our offense.
Some of us are fantasizing about slot WRs because we've seen how other schools use them, but that's not how we use them.
A lot of our offensive scheme is designed around the use of tight ends.
I'm really hoping Harbaugh will change things up a little with this new influx of WR talent that we've gotten in the last two classes.

I guess you already forgot about Wilson.
|6 days 22 hours ago||I think it's for the best||
I think it's for the best that McCaffrey doesn't look anywhere near physically ready to play in college. It probably makes it easier to convince him to sit behind Speight and Peters for a few more seasons.
|6 days 23 hours ago||If true, none of us really||
If true, none of us really know whether this would be good or bad in the long run as regards to the Cass Tech pipeline. I can easily think of some pros and cons.
Wilcher could come to Michigan and do very well, get recognized, then leave for a higher paying position somewhere else.
I guess that could possibly disrupt the Wilcher Cass Tech pipeline because Wilcher would no longer be involved.
Wilcher could come to Michigan and not do well at his position. Would we dare fire him and risk our relationship with Cass Tech?
The pros would be him possibly staying and doing well at Michigan for many years while helping us lock down Cass Tech and Detroit.
|1 week 4 days ago||Among many other things is||
Among many other things is right. I mean, you could argue the Lions need another OL, RB, LB, big outside WR, CB and D lineman.
I don't know how many draft picks we have, but each one should probably be a different position.
I still feel the Lions were about a 7-9 team that got lucky in a couple of close games to go 9-7 in the regular season.
|1 week 5 days ago||I'm not quite sure I follow||
I'm not quite sure I follow what you're saying. Let's say Speight becomes our QB and stays for two more seasons, then Peters wins the job and QBs for two seasons.
McCafferey would be left with only one season to start at the QB position.
Why would it be nonsense for him to possibly want to start for more than one season and decide to transfer?
I don't think that would be nonsense. The same could be said if McCafferey wins the starting spot over Peters and Speight leaves after staying two more years.
I think one of them could seriously think about transferring.
|1 week 5 days ago||I'm not wishing anything bad||
I'm not wishing anything bad on Speight, but I can think of various reasons why some of us would like to see Peters beat him out.
First of all, that would mean that Peters is better or Harbaugh wouldn't give him the starting spot.
Many of us feel we need better play from the QB position, but kinda question Speight's ceiling as a QB.
Therefore, you feel like another QB would have to be playing to reach that ceiling we're aiming for. We want to eventually have a star QB.
One other reason is Speight starting for one or two more seasons could make either Peters or McCafferey seek a transfer, especially McCafferey.
I think he truly believes that he has the skills and pedigree to be starting somewhere in a few years.
|1 week 5 days ago||I'm glad he chose to enter||
I'm glad he chose to enter the NFL draft. He'll probably become one of our flagship players in the NFL. I mean, top recruits want to go to a winning program and one that's sending guys to the NFL.
We need more good players in the NFL, who are saying their names and proudly stating that they're from Michigan during those prime time games.
The main reason Alabama and OSU are recruiting at such a great level is because they're winning and sending stars to the NFL.
|1 week 6 days ago||Many people get way too||
Many people get way too caught up in the head to head argument, but it's just not always that simple when compiling a final poll ranking.
If you go by head to head and put us ahead of PSU, then you would also have to place PSU ahead of OSU.
Therefore, in order for us to be ahead of PSU, we would also have to be placed in front of OSU.
Though wait a minute, OSU beat us head to head.
I'm sure many people can understand what I'm talking about.
I mean, head to head is useful sometimes when putting together a poll ranking, but it won't easily apply to all situations.
|1 week 6 days ago||I get what you're saying. I'm||
I get what you're saying. I'm sure that's why OSU didn't drop more in the final AP rankings, because of their overall season achievements.
We're basically just talking about one spot, 5th or 6th.
I think many of the AP voters just felt Oklahoma looked like the slightly better team by the end of the season.
Therefore, they gave Oklahoma the 5th spot and penalized OSU just a little bit for being blown out in the playoffs.
|1 week 6 days ago||I mean, somebody has to be||
I mean, somebody has to be ranked in the top five. OSU looked very bad in their playoff game and Oklahoma finished somewhat strong.
|1 week 6 days ago||I think Michigan and USC are||
I think Michigan and USC are the only two teams not quite ranked correctly. Michigan should be up one spot and ahead of Wisconsin.
We also beat PSU, but I can understand them getting some credit for winning the Big 10 Championship.
USC should've been ranked 5th and behind Washington and Oklahoma.
|1 week 6 days ago||Man, remember when pretty||
Man, remember when pretty much everybody felt no team would defeat Alabama in the playoffs this season? That's why you play the games.
