From the city, yes.
|1 day 14 hours ago||Even if they knew McGary was coming back,||
they don't know what Dawkins is going to decide. You keep recruiting as long as you have spots to fill. No report this visit includes an offer.
|1 day 16 hours ago||My criticism wasn't of the draft projection.||
I understand he's got to make one for everybody. But basing it on their plans for Monroe is stretching things.
|1 day 18 hours ago||I know Ford has some good contacts,||
but he can't pretend to know what a team without a GM or a coach is planning to do.
|2 days 14 hours ago||Didn't have to be at USC.||
One of their current assistants was at SDSU back then.
|2 days 15 hours ago||Why would he prefer Michigan over Iowa||
when we haven't offered him and don't plan to unless McGary goes?
|2 days 18 hours ago||That's the opposite of my memory.||
False starts, yes, but more personal fouls than any Michigan player that I could recall. Here's a story from very early in his career.
|3 days 10 hours ago||Fielder could have brought more than a 2nd baseman?||
I find that idea pretty funny. Fielder had negative trade value. Getting someone useful for a player they could not have given away is a damn good deal.

There's one in Belleville.
|4 days 8 hours ago||So you're saying that Beilein has been lying||
the whole time and is going to take away Hatch's athletic scholarship before he even finishes high school. How anyone can be certain of that is beyond me.
If the plan was to immediately medical Hatch, why not say so? Hatch certainly doesn't seem to believe that's going to happen.
|4 days 12 hours ago||The reason you're confused||
is that his points don't make bit a bit of sense.

|4 days 20 hours ago||It's not easy to get transfers admitted.||
Starting out at an out of state junior college would make him less likely to clear admissions.
|6 days 10 hours ago||Some good ideas, but a few issues too.||
Title IX may be a stumbling block for only paying football and MBB athletes. There is also a basic fairness question. What about other sports that turn a profit, like hockey at Wisconsin? Of all the NCAA regulations, I would think the limit on practice time is the most important for protecting the athletes.
|6 days 13 hours ago||I think this analysis is flawed on several levels.||
7 OL in one class is too many. Not only are you setting yourself up for roster balance problems down the road, but they redshirt at a much higher rate than other position groups. It's just not realistic to spread those players out over two classes. Aiming for 7 is also very likely going to make it more difficult to get the caliber of player you want. We've heard rumblings before from our recruits about taking 6.
I don't think anybody carries 19-20 scholarship OL. There are several factors why you shouldn't want to. They generally don't play special teams at all. They don't rotate in much, if at all, during games, and they have a lot of positional flexibility within the group. Coaching staffs routinely rep the players at multiple spots. 15-16 should generally be enough. There is no way you can be prepared for every eventuality with a scholarship cap. Overdoing one position group leaves you vulnerable elsewhere.
Unless you simply refuse to recruits players who are going to announce late, you can't be sure of your numbers in each class. That's part of what makes recruiting difficult. By the time we lost out on Garnett and Diamond, (players we were rated to have very good chances with) there's not much opportunity to replace them with quality players.
|6 days 20 hours ago||Yes,||
and at this stage I wouldn't expect them to brought in for a visit unless their offers were planned.
|6 days 21 hours ago||He had a strange recruitment.||
He scheduled an announcement right after a visit here. He said he would choose between us, ND and WVU, but there was disagreement about whether he even had an offer from us. He chose WVU and decommitted as soon as the OSU offer came.
|6 days 22 hours ago||NO||
They would never do that. Shame on you for even asking.
|1 week 8 hours ago||A good opportunity for||
A good opportunity for coaches to speak to the faculty?
|1 week 15 hours ago||You keep referencing Robinson and Nuss,||
but I think you could add pretty much every coordinator ever. New coordinators don't bring in their own staff of assistants.
|1 week 17 hours ago||I think you're misunderstanding his lists.||
Solidly in top 2-3 does not necessarily mean Michigan is #2 or #3. It can also mean we're the recruit's favorite or that BB doesn't know who the favorite is. Brandon can correct me if necessary, but I think trending blue is reserved for players he expects to commit here soon.
|1 week 1 day ago||Dawson is a tweener in college.||
In the NBA he'd be kind of small to play SF, way undersized for PF. As you said, he just looks like a potential role player as a defensive stopper.
|1 week 1 day ago||Where was Appling a 5*?||
Or Lucas for that matter? I'd add Summers to any bust list. He got worse every year under Izzo. Roe was a good player with knees that couldn't hold up.
|1 week 2 days ago||My expectations are simple.||
I expect to watch a team that always plays hard, with an entertaining style. I expect to see at least one player take a big step forward and look forward to seeing what the freshmen can provide. I'm curious to see who's going to become the leader and what adjustments Beilein is going to make.
|1 week 2 days ago||That will be just as true||
if he wins four games. Hoke's choice of words is an insignificant part of this story and his resume.
|1 week 3 days ago||try to be fair||
Lewis has been here less than one year.
|1 week 3 days ago||If there were an early signing period,||
it would be sometime in the fall. As long as coaches take early verbal commitments there are going to be decommits.
