A good opportunity for coaches to speak to the faculty?
|9 hours 27 min 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.
|12 hours 25 min 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 day 5 hours 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 day 5 hours 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.
|2 days 6 hours 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.
|2 days 12 hours 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.
|3 days 11 hours ago||try to be fair||
Lewis has been here less than one year.
|3 days 14 hours 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.

was their Michigan recruiter.He played QB and coached at MSU.

|4 days 13 hours ago||dumbest comment I've seen for awhile||
Try to show a little class.
|5 days 3 hours ago||While Hatch may well end up on a medical||
scholarship, I don't there is any way he gets put on one before he even enrolls. Beilein isn't going to kill his dream of a comeback without even giving him a chance, certainly not for a fourth late addition.
|5 days 4 hours ago||We don't know if Beilein has the same rule||
for transfers. He hasn't recruited any here yet and their circumstances are different. HS school players can take official visits paid for by the school, prospective transfers cannot. It just seems wrong to assume he's going to adopt a counterproductive approach.
Also, we have a maximum of 3 open spots. We were going to be 1 over if everyone returned.
|5 days 6 hours ago||Just like it did two years ago?||
Isn't it time to accept that Beilein knows what he's doing?
|5 days 7 hours ago||That's a hard position to find sleepers,||
especially ones ready to play right away. 6'10" guys are usually well scouted and often offered based on potential.
|5 days 13 hours ago||congrats to the OP||
I'm going to have a taxing weekend.
|6 days 4 hours ago||I'm not agreeing to any such thing.||
What you said was both insulting and delivered in an insulting tone. If someone said something like that about you, can you honestly say you wouldn't consider it a personal attack?
|6 days 4 hours ago||You can hold any opinion you like.||
But posting personal attacks on a player here should require more than just a completely uninformed opinion.
|6 days 8 hours ago||Who took nearly 100% of the backup minutes||
this season at the 4? While Zak Irvin is obviously not a prototype PF, that won't stop Beilein from continuing to use him there. If GRIII is playing the 3, that's the main way to get Irvin on the floor. I can't imagine Doyle or Bielfeldt taking significant minutes away from Zak.
|6 days 13 hours ago||1. I'm looking forward to||
1. I'm looking forward to watching it, but it's not even my favorite golf event on the calendar. Ryder Cup (I know it's not on the calendar every year), British Open and US Open are all higher on my list. World Cup, NCAA march madness, UM vs OSU football are all much bigger in my eyes.
3. I always root for one of the old-timers and an amateur. Their presence is something that adds to the appeal of the Masters for me.
|6 days 15 hours ago||He wasn't yet ready to play this season.||
Extrapolating that to say he won't ever be ready to play at Michigan requires more information than any of us possess.
|1 week 16 hours ago||good news||
Denard should never be even semi OT.
|1 week 1 day ago||Jealous of whom?||
Georgia for playing Notre Dame, or ND who only play five conference games? Either way, I'm not.
|1 week 1 day ago||Hoke is still coaching the DTs.||
He just isn't listed as a DL coach.
|1 week 2 days ago||Redshirting everyone puts you at||
a major competitive disadvantage in recruiting. It's a strategy best suited for schools that can't draw top end talent. Every single one of the schools with recruiting classes comparable to or better than ours play a lot of true freshmen. Top recruits often pay a lot of attention to how teams use freshmen.
|1 week 3 days ago||Actions speak louder than words.||
He doesn't have a Michigan offer, so it's in his interest to say something along those lines. I can remember hearing of only one other player visiting us twice while committed elsewhere, Brionte Dunn. Anything's possible, but I'd bet on him wanting an offer.
|1 week 3 days ago||four year scholarships||
Some schools already offer them and the Big Ten is on record recommending their schools do.
|1 week 3 days ago||Why did he commit to MSU in the first place?||
Perhaps it was because he wanted to stay close to home and it didn't look like a UM offer was coming.
