|1 week 6 days ago||This is great summary of the||
This is great summary of the situation and shows why these topics are a complete waste of time. There is alot of potential variability in the team's record next year and it is completely stupid for someone out there to argue that there is no way Michigan could lose 6 games or alternatively that there is no way Michigan could win 11.
|2 weeks 11 hours ago||Another timing issue is||
Another timing issue is spring break. Both the last 2 years Michigan started with a week of practices before spring break, then a week off for spring break, and back at it. It could be intentional they want to start before...perhaps the coaches like to get a few in and get an initial look and then have a week to plan on what they want to emphasize and adapt to given the knowledge gained in the first couple practices.

Last day of class (before finals start) is Tuesday 21st.

Agreed..first team i thought of when i saw the question. in addition to those 3 nba players, the other 2 starters were garland mance (st bonaventure) and elton carter (penn state).
|3 weeks 11 hours ago||I didnt know there was ever||
I didnt know there was ever an attendance number given for the Michigan game. I dont think "about 60,000" counts as an attendance number.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||I get the general||
I get the general argument..but he had 19 tackles as a freshman and 6 tackles in the OSU game. That just doesnt fit the profile of a wasted redshirt..especially one that Seth and Brian seem to be making such a big deal about recently as if he never played. I would sure like for him to have an extra year but those numbers just dont fit the narrative.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Im a bit confused by all the||
Im a bit confused by all the noise about this Gedeon non-redshirt issue? Gedeon had 6 tackles and a sack in a single game against OSU as a freshman in 2013. People are acting like he was never used at all that year. That is alot more than most people produce as freshman. of course it would be great if he had another year but all teams burn redshirts for a lot less PT than Gedeon got. How much did Damon Webb play last year when he burned his redshirt for OSU.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Im not expressing any opinion||
Im not expressing any opinion on it..just saying I think other fan bases would not treat this well. The fact that Austin has played in actual games shows that he is healthy enough to...well, play in actual games. Therefore, if he was moved to a medical waiver without some new injury then it would be viewed that the only reason for the switch was to give his scholarship to a better player. Yes - he would still be on scholarship at the school but he would no longer be allowed to play in a game. I realize Michigan has been loyal to him over the past few years but Im guessing public criticism would quickly forget that part.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||If Brown were to come here||
If Brown were to come here and they open a scholarship by putting Hatch on medical, I think there would be alot of negative coverage nationwide given how much publicity there has been around Hatch. Im not sure if they can go down that road.

Nice job of creating a rumor on the internet but deflecting any criticism by saying you've "heard rumors".

Pretty sure that Zordich is in trouble too if that really was why she deleted her account.

As you say the topic is so "white hot" that there is another thread on it below..

You said you wanted to find out what their intent was in winter conditioning. Were you pleased with some of the results?
|8 weeks 3 days ago||There is no reason he had to||
There is no reason he had to specifically lavish praise on Kevin Tolbert and name him at the press conference just because he couldnt say something else.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||And yet Harbaugh spoke at his||
And yet Harbaugh spoke at his press conference last week about how happy he was about the conditioning they had gone through and what great shape they were in...stop believing these nonsense "insider" posts
|8 weeks 4 days ago||I especially like the part||
I especially like the part about how practices are faster as they have a second team ready to go....hmmm - where have I heard that before? I know..last year. Here is a quote from an Mlive article last spring about how Nussmeier was increasing the tempo to get more reps at practice....
There's been plenty of talk about the overall pace Nussmeier -- Michigan's first-year offensive coordinator -- works with in practice, and the overall level of tempo he chooses to play with during games.
Practices are quick. When a play ends, the next group -- according to players -- is expected to be out of the huddle and ready to snap the ball for the next rep. That concept is a simple one: It creates more reps, and for a young team, the more reps the better.

Its used as a lazy, generic criticism..notice how it never has names/players associated with the criticism so then you cant refute it.

Seems like you really got some great evidence to back that statement up.

Isnt there a diary right now on this same subject?
|12 weeks 6 days ago||I think the issue is||
I think the issue is distinguishing between news that "player X committed to school" vs "interviews/detailed info and analysis". If all you care about is the news that a player commits, well then that of course comes here immediately and is on twitter immediately. If you like following the story/saga and all the camp reviews, then that info definitely does not come here immediately and may just have snippets show up a few days later in a roundup. Some people only care about the first thing so the pay subscription would be a complete waste of money. Some others actually enjoy the analysis and story surrounding recruiting so then it may be worth it to pay for it if your enjoyment for it is worth $100/yr. For me, it is so I do pay it but if I only cared about news that someone committed then it would definitely not be worth it.
|13 weeks 5 hours ago||Interesting followup||
Interesting followup then...if they make it free and can support their sites just from ads, would it actually hurt the free sites like mgoblog. Why would you then look to get the info at mgoblog if you could get it free directly from the source?
|13 weeks 6 hours ago||Great point...why do the||
Great point...why do the writers of this blog subscribe if these thing are stupid and a waste of money???
|13 weeks 6 hours ago||If the news is a coach||
If the news is a coach visited a recruit, a recruit scheduled a visit, a recruit committed, etc....then its pretty easy to fit that info in 140 characters. A well written article expanding one piece of info into 4 paragraphs could be considered a complete waste of time to read the extra fluff.
|13 weeks 7 hours ago||I hardly find an issue with||
I hardly find an issue with someone paying $100/yr for info on something they find interesting and enjoy following. Someone else might spend that $100 on a few books on some topic they find interesting but has no interest to the other person.
|13 weeks 7 hours ago||I guess the question to you||
I guess the question to you is do you get anything new out of the recruiting roundups here? If your anser is yes which I assume it is for many, then that means that all off that info was for subscribers 2-4 days prior to that usually since Ace does 2 a week and that is the source for his info.
|13 weeks 7 hours ago||Correct..the recruiting||
Correct..the recruiting roundups are great for those who dont subscribe but are largely a twice a week summary of the info from all the various pay sites over the prior few days with quotes and sections reproduced.
|13 weeks 7 hours ago||I also wonder if twitter||
I also wonder if twitter hurts free blogs like this. Let's be honest..most of the recruiting topics on the board here are just some twitter user posting it so that the non-twitter users can see it...new RB offer going out, Lavert Hill to PSU and all of the topics of past few days are just tied back to tweets. It used to be that there was info on boards like these because no one had a source for info. If you follow a wide assortment of michigan beat writers and recruiting analysts in twitter, then you really dont get any other info on these boards as most just are reporting on a recent tweet that you would have definitely seen by following that group.
|13 weeks 7 hours ago||That is as long as they allow||
That is as long as they allow Ace to do his recruiting roundup with a cut and paste of all of their quotes and info.
|13 weeks 10 hours ago||Good post... The buzz in the||
The buzz in the fall seemed to surround Montemarano being a vastly improved hitter. In fact, she was hitting behind Romero in the fall games. They had Romero hit in 2 spot for a couple games and in 3 spot for another game...all of those times she had Monetmarano behind her.
Also, they had Blanco hitting in the DP spot in several of the games so she may be in line for a lot of playing time even when not pitching. She struggled a little at the plate but did have a HR in the fall.
