I kind of just got out of a thing, not really looking for anything serious right now.

I don't necessarily agree with that but I do see how some people might.

Curry also led the league in steals/game this year.
|23 weeks 4 days ago||Curry takes the team from||
Curry takes the team from very good to elite. He's unquestionably the most valuable player this year. Put him on any team and they're at least a playoff contender (similar to LeBron).
|23 weeks 4 days ago||Minnesota Kevin Love was the||
Minnesota Kevin Love was the guy a team would run their offense through, Cleveland Kevin Love spots up for open threes and rarely gets the ball in the paint. Totally different player right now.
|24 weeks 3 days ago||The competition level||
The competition level definitely helps him I'd say. If I saw these types of highlights against nobodies I would not be impressed, but the fact that he's able to drive and rebound against Oak Hill makes me think he'll be a solid addition.

Man if he could just shoot 60% he'd be much more valuable.

Picture two late 30s/early 40s dudes from suburban Detroit wearing clown makeup. You also should know that Faygo brand soda is a big part of their shows.

Not to mention our own Coach Harbaugh and Jim Minick.

I agree. Nik's freshman year he was probably the 3rd/4th scoring option depending on who was on the floor. Burke and Hardaway were great at drawing defenders and finding Stauskas for the open 3. I miss that team.
|31 weeks 2 days ago||I will bet you $1,000,000||
I will bet you $1,000,000 that Nik doesn't make a 3 against ND.

They discontinued that a couple years ago unfortunately. Now they have you allocate points based on what you value in a team and it fills out the whole bracket for you.

First off, Beilein does go after the highly ranked guys. However, so does everyone else, and we can't always get those highly ranked guys.
Second off, I'm going to assume you forgot how truly bad we were before Beilein showed up. I'm not talking first round NCAA exit bad, I'm talking happy to win a game in the NIT bad. It's not a coincidence that Michigan basketball started winning after we hired Beilein.
|37 weeks 5 hours ago||Not a chance. People here||
Not a chance. People here don't remember how truly awful we were at basketball before Beilein showed up. We're in 5th place in the B1G without our best player for basically the whole year, we'll be alright.

Outscored the other team by himself?!

Hyping it up was the mistake, but I thought the video was good. My girlfriend would probably say the same thing as yours but she's not a crazy Michigan fan like most people on this blog. Something tells me that a lot of people here would think the video was pretty awesome if it wasn't for the initial tweet and snark about it in this thread.
|38 weeks 8 hours ago||Is this event before or after||
Is this event before or after they sign? I bet Rashan Gary has the voice of an angel.
|38 weeks 3 days ago||I believe this is true.||
I believe this is true. Recruits weren't sure what to expect from a Harbaugh led Michigan team and weren't ready to jump on board yet. Harbaugh looked around and found some talented under the radar types ready to take a leap of faith with him after meeting him at camps. Harbaugh does what Harbaugh does and goes 10-3 in his first year and top flight talent starts asking about jumping on board. Harbaugh cuts loose the 3* guys to address the depletion of the roster we'll see in 2017 with higher level talent.
|38 weeks 4 days ago||I really don't think you have||
I really don't think you have to pick either. Tell any of these guys a month ago that we're looking at better options and there's no Michigan bashing or icky feeling.
But playing by your rules: I hold Michigan to a higher standard than "do whatever the NCAA says is legal." At the end of the day we're talking about college football. It's a big business and is great for university exposure, but if Michigan loses it'll sting for maybe a day. I watch it for entertainment and try not to get too invested in it (I mostly fail). In light of that, I would rather Michigan put together a respectable on field product and do it with integrity than be in the hunt for a NC every year while processing players like they're disposable.
Again, I don't think it's a choose one or the other situation. But if Michigan is going to win I want them to do it the "right" way.
|38 weeks 4 days ago||Do you really want a National||
Do you really want a National Championship that much? I don't know that I do if it means really competing with other teams in terms of shady recruiting practices.
|38 weeks 4 days ago||You can absolutely blame the||
You can absolutely blame the school for their recruiting tactics. I really don't care about things like satellite camps or Harbaugh climbing a tree to get a recruit - it skirts the line between legal and illegal (also the line between creepy and hilarious). However, when it comes to treating recruits with respect it's a moral thing and we can definitely look down on these practices.
This isn't about offering everyone, this is about waiting until a few weeks before the deadline before telling a guy who has been committed for a while that his spot is taken. It may be within the NCAA's rules to do this, but it's not something Michigan should do. Michigan holds itself to a higher standard.
|39 weeks 4 days ago||The only real way to do this||
The only real way to do this would be to start at the lowest levels and allow the younger kids to learn the rugby type of tackling. If we converted to less padding over the off season in the NFL, NCAA, and maybe even high school I think we'd see a lot of pretty gruesome head injuries.
|41 weeks 4 days ago||Seriously. The dude||
Seriously. The dude contributed to the success of the team this year, why do people here discount that because he took another job? Do they honestly believe that had he not been considering other jobs he would have figured out how to stop Ohio State from manhandling our front line? Based on our issues against Indiana I don't think it was gameplan so much as personnel.

If it actually affected an Iowa fan's experience, that's on that person. Learn to take a joke and laugh at yourself. The Stanford band clearly doesn't take itself too seriously, neither should anyone else.

Ed McCaffrey is a class act, he wouldn't do that.
