FWIW. Michigan doesn't seem inclined to get re-involved.

|16 min 54 sec ago||Two more dismissals were added to the story||
since you posted the link.
|17 hours 33 min ago||"very, very soon"||
That sounds an awful lot like this Sunday to me.
|17 hours 40 min ago||I believe Sam was in contact||
with people who cover Alabama that thought McMillon was a plan B recruit for them. Since he was planning to commit soon, his timeline didn't match up well with theirs.
|21 hours 46 min ago||I know we're not allowed call each other names here.||
It's impolite and lowers the level of discourse.
But you're an idiot.
|1 day 39 min ago||I'd add Drew Smyly.||
I'd add Drew Smyly.
|2 days 14 hours ago||What's to stop them, or any other foreign teams,||
from poaching college players mid-season? Unlike this signing, that would be a big problem for college basketball.
|2 days 14 hours ago||Schools picking which 66 of them qualify||
would be a nearly impossible and bloody process.
|2 days 16 hours ago||yes and no||
We'll be seeing even more competition for a lot of our recruits. We're already starting to go up frequently against the schools that take those one and dones.
|2 days 18 hours ago||Using such offensive language||
isn't a good way to make a point about being offended.
|2 days 19 hours ago||It hasn't been long since he could have||
gone straight to the NBA. I don't think that was a time free from shady dealings in the college game. If you were to take the top 20 players off the table, wouldn't college programs and their boosters want the next 20 just as much? Probably even more, since they're less likely to be one and done.
|3 days 6 min ago||Most basketball players are pretty skinny,||
especially guards. Let's not forget that Caris played awfully well last season. Adding some muscle is good, transforming his body type is not necessary.
|3 days 4 hours ago||He's also grown an inch.||
He's listed now at 6'9". That makes it easier to put on good weght.
|3 days 4 hours ago||Bielfeldt played zero minutes at the 4 last season.||
I predict more of the same this season. He may be called upon as an emergency 5 more often, but his change in class designation on the roster signals to me that he's not competing for serious playing time.
|3 days 21 hours ago||Rice said Michigan didn't recruit him||
until after he'd already made up his mind. Given all of his off the court problems, it's not a decision I'll question.
|3 days 22 hours ago||Do we take a wing and a guard in 2015?||
We've widened our recruiting net lately, but I wonder where McQuaid would fall on Beilein's board. A combo guard sure looks to be the top priority.
|6 days 17 hours ago||You do realize you're talking about Jones' second class?||
It sounds like you don't.
|6 days 23 hours ago||Beamer's at the top of my list, too.||
He's as classy a coach as I've seen. I have a soft spot for John L. Smith. He's not a great coach, but he was entertaining and doesn't take himself too seriously.
|6 days 23 hours ago||Didn't he give out scholarships||
to an unusally high number of walkons? They had attrition with the coaching change and they were available. Isn't that better than leaving them open? That's what he probably would have done if he couldn't recruit for those spots in the next class.
|1 week 13 hours ago||The weights of every returning player||
are listed as exactly the same as last year. Pretty clear they haven't been updated yet.
|1 week 16 hours ago||Yup, just like McLimans||
Yup, just like McLimans before him.
|1 week 17 hours ago||It's mentioned in the comment you responded to||
|1 week 19 hours ago||It doesn't look that way, Don.||
from the mlive.com article
|1 week 19 hours ago||Loud noises at night||
will likely draw more complaints from nearby residents.
|1 week 19 hours ago||OP, you might add||
that he has been suspended for 3 games.
|1 week 20 hours ago||I think it's not even close in the other direction.||
Your first point is what does it for me. It was apparent that GERG knew practically nothing about the 3-3-5 when he was canned. He either didn't bother to or was incapable of learning it. My vote is for the former. As far as Obi Ezeh, after he had been replaced by Demens, it was RR who had to intervene after GERG sent him back out to MLB. Maybe GERG would have been competent running his own system, but as far as doing the job he was hired to do, he's the worst ever in my book.
No doubt Borges had a bad year in 2013. He didn't adapt well to the big hole in our offense. He wasn't so bad until then so I don't know where to place him overall. Agree completely with your last point.
|1 week 1 day ago||It's only fair to have a waiver||
for coaches that were hired before their kids were born.
|1 week 1 day ago||So Patrick Beilein||
would have had to go somewhere else? Also Andy Moeller, Jason Carr and many more, even Roger Reid. Do we really need more restrictive rules from the NCAA? I don't think it's a shady move, but even if it were, the cure would be worse than the problem.
|1 week 1 day ago||I'd like to see that.||
This sounds like a good step in that direction.
|1 week 1 day ago||There aren't.||
The rankings referenced were his brothers'.
|1 week 1 day ago||Alabama recruited him to play TE/H-back.||
The main knock on Poggi as a DT were questions about his ability to carry enough weight. If he were to switch positions, blocking TE would be the logical destination.
