Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.

Let's just see how Rudock and Beathard look this year. Unless Beathard looks clearly better, it's a good question for Kirk Ferentz.
|5 hours 27 min ago||I think that if UNC's offers that technical defense||
they're in very deep trouble. The NCAA is well aware of those numbers. They're a reason they gave for not pursuing the case the first time around.
Let's consider some hypotheticals. The class was created to give athletes an easy A. The AD steered struggling athletes to the class. The AD or administration knew it was a sham class.
50% of the students in the sham class were not athletes. Was that always the case? If it started out entirely athletes, then expanded, that's a lot worse than if it was always an even mix. This should be easy to prove one way or another.
I'm not sure of the significance of the 50% figure. What if it were 90%? What would be a representative number? Were athletes given preferential treatment in getting into the class?
|10 hours 1 min ago||All true.||
This offense seems unstoppable, it's a lot of fun to watch. But softball is still a sport where pitchers can dominate. and they're going to have to win a couple of low scoring games.
|10 hours 40 min ago||The need some feel to vent on a public forum||
is one of those things I just don't understand. Probably never will.
|1 day 10 hours ago||Caring about the fairness of the scorekeeping||
in some random school's spring game? There's probably a word for that, but my vocabulary is inadequate.
|2 days 2 hours ago||A last ditch offer to beat out the Sabres?||
They were reportedlly offering quite a bit more than the Wings too.
|2 days 10 hours ago||Doesn't the NBA prevent teams from trading their||
first round picks away in consecutive years? Other than that, I'd say your proposed trade is a no-brainer for Detroit. Maybe the 2016 and 2018 picks.
|2 days 21 hours ago||I'm not sure what system would be better.||
|3 days 6 hours ago||His guardian played for Purdue.||
Also he wants to play PF, his likely NBA position. There's no question that's where he fits in at Purdue, next to an NBA talent level center.
|3 days 7 hours ago||Countess didn't start every game last season||
and got moved back and forth between corner and nickel. Even if he did start this season, he would playing a system that doesn't suit him best.
|3 days 20 hours ago||It's an interesting question.||
Obviously, how many of his credits admissions will accept is an issue. I suppose it shouldn't matter whether he's academically eligible while he's sitting out, but I don't know if that's the rule.
|4 days 3 hours ago||Where did you get that Beilein tried to keep||
Max from tranferring within the Big Ten? Why are you assuming the worst about Beilein? He hasn't done enough to earn your respect? Just terrible. Didn't Jake Rudock just win the exact same appeal even though Iowa had no objections to his coming here?
My opinion is the transfer is very good for Max and Beilein knows it. He's got a lot of depth and wants his young players to develop. It's not fair to sit Max if he's a little better than Donnal and Wilson. But if you expect Donnal and Wilson to surpass Max if they get more minutes, it's better for the team to play them early in the season. You can disagree with that opinion of their potential, but Beilein has to make decisions based on what he expects from his roster. He's seen a lot more that we have.
|4 days 7 hours ago||That's a good list. Two more things stand out;||
UTL and finally paying competitve salaries to assistant coaches.
|5 days 7 hours ago||California has an exceptionally good JUCO system.||
They offer classes that are accepted by a lot of good schools, including Michigan. Moncrief went to a JUCO in Mississippi. It's a night and day difference.
|5 days 9 hours ago||I'm skeptical about Moncrief getting past admissions.||
He was a JUCO before going to Auburn.
|5 days 11 hours ago||Just want to point out that you||
don't know what you're talking about. And the devotion to Nike is clear proof of it.
You can't see the foolishness of claiming that a group doesn't understand why the brand matters because they're too brand loyal? It's an epically bad argument.
|6 days 5 hours ago||not any more||
Times have changed. Coordinators are even getting 3 year deals.
|6 days 5 hours ago||His unusual contract situation,||
that this was a step down from his last NFL job and Harbaugh hired two qualified WR coaches that look like possible successors. I don't think anyone knows if he's just here for one season, but he looks to be the most likely member of the staff to move on soon.
At the least, he'll be due a substantial raise next year when Jacksonville stops paying him.
|6 days 8 hours ago||It's at least as much about quality of life as it is longevity.||
|6 days 10 hours ago||Good to hear about Cissoko.||
Last I knew, he wasn't headed towards freedom, Trenton or otherwise.
|6 days 23 hours ago||Yes, he's replacing players who are transferring out||
and spots that weren't filled in the 2015 class..
|6 days 23 hours ago||Taking grad transfers says nothing to me about the||
importance of this season..I think he would do that if he could every season if only to add needed depth. With scholarships to spare, it only makes sense.
Bringing in non-grad transfers of course does nothing for the coming season. So far he's only brought in O'Korn who plugs a glaring hole on the depth chart. I expect him to be very selective with regular transfers.
|1 week 2 hours ago||Only problem with that,||
kids are committing now. We've lost out on two in-state players we wanted in the last week.
|1 week 1 day ago||Those PGs at the top of the draft board are 6"5".||
He was talking about 6" players. Undersized players have a lot more to prove.
|1 week 1 day ago||Really? You just have no idea||
what you're talking about. None.
RR got us put on probation, along with other penalties.. It was a huge deal at the time to many. UM football had never been on probation. Those were multiple major violations, according to the NCAA standards. These kind of very minor violations under Harbaugh with no penalties attached happen all over every season.
Again, and I can't stress this enough, you have no idea what you're talking about.
|1 week 1 day ago||Two suggestions.||
1) If you do get pulled over for suspected DWI, don't tell the cop you drink and drive plenty
2) Stop doing it.
|1 week 1 day ago||Sorry, but if you think those things are blowing Harbaugh's||
goodwill you're completely lacking in perspective. Seriously, every one of your points is either trivial, way premature or stupid. You're comparing recruiting classes when he was only here for a month and jumping to conclusions about the next class. A few trivial minor violations? Compare those to what happens at other programs. You think the standard is none? They were only news items because everything Harbaugh does makes the news. Same with American Sniper although I doubt people they don't follow Michigan or live here ever heard about them.
|1 week 1 day ago||I'll just make one assumption; that the cops||
warned him he'd be arrested if he refused to take the breathalyzer test. If he had been drinking before his accident, it's unreasonable to get that testy over being asked to take the test. I sincerely doubt he has such little respect for the local cops as you suggest.
|1 week 2 days ago||I thinks this falls far short of what the SEC wanted.||
In fact, it looks like an outright loss for them.
|1 week 2 days ago||Moving on.||
Watson has "a ton of experience as a press corner"? He's a RS freshman who was moved to safety last year and whose HS only played 3 games a couple of years ago. He looks like a better fit for this staff's defensive system, but let's not get carried away.
