The players on the current roster were AVAILABLE at the time, meaning they were open to coming to Michigan AND were at the level M wanted.
It seems that this year too many of the upper level players in Ohio are all Buckeye and not really open to talking to Michigan....or they are not at the level M is trying to recruit at for whatever position and there are better options elsewhere.
I highly doubt M is ceding Ohio in terms of recruiting on a long term basis.

If their offense matches up well to our defense in personnel and scheme and they get hot on the day, it could mean trouble. Our defense is not without vulnerabilities against accurate, medium-range passing.
Take that and the potential for our offense to sputter and/or even just depend on the ground game too much and you have a recipe for disaster.
If this turns into a race and Indiana gets hot along with a few lucky breaks from the refs (which seems to be the norm these days), a few turnovers, or just strange bounces of the ball, we could be in trouble pretty easily.
Think Minnesota game with a high octane offense on the field.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||yes, this IS the internet||
and the reason the vast majority of it sucks is because there is little thought put into nearly everything that is posted on it and nothing in the way of standards, so you are right on that, people DO constantly judge other people based on little/no/mis-information. It doesn't mean they SHOULD do it. While it is the internet, this is also MGoBlog and people at least like to think there is some form of standard here, obviously you don't.
As for waiting for ALL the information, I don't remember saying that, but at least SOME information would be a good start....more than simply the on-the-surface items I listed above.
The real problem, as I see it, is that the people you see as "opining", I see as "whining" about what they perceive to be issues with a kid they know nothing about and a situation they know very little about.
Given the scenario at hand, there are nearly an infinite number of causal factors that could be involved that no one is aware of, just as many that would not be any kind of mark against the kid's character as there are that would point to him having issues. It is unfortunate that on your internet, people always seem to want to assume the worst. That is okay with me for politicians, business people and adults in general, but when it concerns 18 year old kids, I would hope that they might exercise a little restraint, or even (gulp) give a kid the benefit of the doubt every once in a while.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||excellent!||
|4 weeks 12 hours ago||not actually||
It is a basic fact that in lieu of the emails coming to light AND being verified, Schlissel planned to give Brandon until graduation to correct things...on any timeline that obviates Harbaugh as an option. Brandon had also stated that he would have given Hoke another year, so there was no chance that he would have fired Hoke and gone after Harbaugh immediately and there is every indication that even had this occured, that Harbaugh had zero interest in working for DB.
So even if you assume that Bandon "douches himself out of the game", admittedly a distinct possibility, tand at he is gone in May, we end up with ?/Hackett at that point as an interim AD who has little choice but to stick with Hoke for another year.
|4 weeks 14 hours ago||Except that...||
A. Decides not to publish emails at all
B. Retracts them and doesn't bother to assess their voracity (yes, I know the joke and the correct spelling)
Brandon hangs on until at least May.....Harbaugh leaves 49ers for another team....
Right now we would almost certainly still be dealing with Brandon as AD and Hoke as a coach.
That is without a doubt a pretty big change in the world of M football and athletics that you can't really deny.
|4 weeks 16 hours ago||the only thing we know for sure here,||
is that we don't have all the information and therefore can't pass any kind of judgement on anybody.
Until we have some solid info, let's not let pure conjecture be any form of basis for an opinion on Syracuse or Clark.
-Kid waffles on school choice and changes commitment - this describes at least 30% of the 3-star+ recruits and the process they go through
-Plays 1 game at UCLA and then decides to transfer - so kid gets to school and realizes, for whatever reason, wrong choice/bad fit, not what he wants for ~4 years, also not an earth shattering event in college football these days
-offer pulled by Syracuse - weird, but this could be a result of any number of different factors or combination of factors and doesn't necessarily implicate either Syracuse or Clark as being entirely at fault
|4 weeks 1 day ago||I live in SF and it seemed here||
that a lot of the friction between Harbaugh and the owner/management stemmed from him not having a sufficient say in the personnel decisions, so I think it a great leap of logic for the writer to just assume he "concurred" with them, when all the evidence is there to suggest that he absolutely did not.
The personnel decisions being questioned here were exactly the reason he left.

Hoyle's fallacy doesn't apply....see Wikipedia
The "Tornado in a Junkyard" analogy is an example of an argument by false analogy, a logical fallacy. It is also an example of denying the antecedent: when confronted with the claim that adding energy to a system can give rise to complexity, creationists simply present an example of a situation where adding energy to a system does not give rise to complexity

Craig James ACTUALLY killed 5 hookers
There was lots of evidence and investigation that pointed to it being the truth, that Craig James killed 5 hookers, but in the end he was only charged with doing so and released.

she discovered two videos had been texted from her phone to Tuley-Tillman’s phone"
|5 weeks 1 day ago||the person who made the video was wearing a watch||
that was visible in the video and LTT copped to that being his watch.
In isolation, this might not appear as serious as when there were less details available, however hearing that there were multiple other girls that allege the same thing sort of implies this is an ongoing problem with him, not one bad decision.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||In all the soul crushing sadness from Saturday,||
I hadn't really thought about it, but we are essentially very nearly two plays away from being undefeated with some quality wins.
I know you can't play the "take away" game with any amount of legitimacy, but I'm going to anyway.
Take away, of course, the last play of the MSU game, we win against the 7th ranked, undefeated Juggalos (sorry, that is what I'm calling them, this week at least)
Take away the pick- six at Utah and we at least enter overtime, perhaps win that game.
That is amazingly close to results that would have us in serious contention for the BCS playoffs at this point in the season, with OSU to go. If that game goes our way, a potential match-up with Iowa in the Big10 championship game.
If you gave me this scenario last year before Harbaugh was hired, I would have paid for it...likely after he was hired also.

I wish people that do stuff like this could be held accountable in some way and they could somehow be purged from the fan base for all eternity.

|6 weeks 2 days ago||I'm optimistic, but||
If we are so good that people can't even fathom a loss to a top 5 ranked rival team like MSU, then I think they are drinking Kool Aid.
The game will not be a cakewalk by any stretch, Sparty will come to play and this game will be infinitely more physical than any they have played thus far.
I mean, for people to belive based on numbers that the result is somehow a foregone conclusion, you are basically saying this team can't lose until it gets to the playoff.
Love this team, the players, the coaches the attitude and the progress, but they are not invincible.....yet

Can't believe what I am seeing.
I'm in Jamaica for work and amd streaming this off my laptop onto the large screen in the bar at the hotel. We have a bunch of new fans today in Montego Bay :)
This is an entirely different tam from a year ago and the difference is astounding.
Lol...the announcer just said NWestern had a "wet leg" and i got to explain that to a bunch of Jamaicans.
|7 weeks 9 hours ago||not to mention..||
Rhett himself was harassed at school and I remember a picture of him in the car with his Dad while people were hounding them and it looked like a pretty stressful situation, especially for a kid. I have a whole new understanding of a certain segment of our own fanbase after that period and what went on....not flattering.
I highly doubt he would give us so much as a glance if we showed any interest. More interesting if we were to go up against him on another team at some point.
Glad he is doing well though and wish him the best.
|7 weeks 14 hours ago||my guess is that Harbaugh heard LTT's version||
and it was enough to pass judgement.
H: Did you record someone you had relations with without their knowledge?
LTT: Yes, but.....
I don't think the U has actually censured him yet, have they?
