Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.

I assume the comment about the smell in golden is related to the smell of hops coming from the Coors Brewery right in the middle of town, which isn't always awesome, but that's the price you pay for having a brewery. You can go in and have free samples pretty much everyday, as I did as a student.
Denver itself is a great city, and the traffic up to the resorts can be god awful at times. You'll usually miss the brunt of the traffic if you get on the road early enough on the weekends (out of the city by 6 or 6:30am), but it's tough to miss the traffic coming back unless you come back from the mountains after 7pm or later.
Boulder is probably the closest you'll get to an Ann Arbor setting, although for a large city, I don't think you could do much better than Denver.

Anybody else having a problem making trades on their site? When I try to buy shares, the number of shares is just a dropdown box with only the option to buy '0' shares?

A lot of the same people that were calling for RR to be fired after his first season, and who were calling for kovacs to be replaced every year before his senior year. Some people are just not happy with what they've got and just don't have the patience to let someone complete their job. Agreed that I'm upset with the playcalling and Borges in general, but damn guys, pull yourselves together. Shit.

I would never want to face Butler in the tournament. I feel like the lower the seed they are, the more dangerous they are.

Like the patches as long as they are limited to best of the best. Its something no one else is doing

Am I the only one that sees Sparty taking a step back next season. Not a huge step back, but losing Cousins/Worthy/Baker/WRs is going to hurt them. I keep hearing from them that Maxwell isn't going to miss a beat from where Cousins left off, but I'm very skeptical of that. Experience means a lot to a strating QB.
I guess I just don't understand why we dropped and they remain in the top 10... I figure 14 is about right for us, but I see Sparty lower than that.

I really really enjoy reading these analyses that you put together!
I notice that you chose the Rivals database to use for your recruiting rankings, which makes a lot of sense since they have the most data available. I wonder if you could use your same methodologies and Scout/ESPN/247 databases (assuming information is available) to see how their rankings correlate with future success and thus provide another bullet point in the argument of which recruiting service has the most reliable rankings.
Obviously team success and individual success are not the same, and also you can only really work with the data that is available. But I think it would certainly be interesting, especially as more and more recruiting data becomes available.

I really hope we draw Colorado. But a USC/Oregon/Arizona matchup would be sweet as well.

Not everybody has the same policy that Hoke has about visits. The staff knows this, and soon recruits will know this too. There's nothing wrong with trying to recruit kids that are willing to listen. He is just holding Michigan commits to a higher standard, as he should.

One of the greatest college QBs of all-time in my opinion...

During the RR era, it was easy to say that they were players that didn't support RR's program. However, with all of the support for Hoke from former players (some of who played when Hoke was an assistant coach), I would be surprised if they are still unhappy with the direction the program is headed or how things are currently being handled...

I know a lot of people on here have mixed feelings about you, but you're an alright dude, Dudeness
