You think it's depressing that I even question how much this matters? Crazy.

cousin sounds kind of dumb. I am sure his career was unspectacular.
|1 day 5 hours ago||??||
The question is how important this is and my hypothosis is that the more important this is to you, the less mature you are about the decision you are making. The less mature you are, the bigger the risk your overall priorities are messed up or will get you messed up.
In the end, I just don't think it matters much at all. It is probably somewhere around the importance level of a "cool throwback" or "crap throwback" uniform in a night game. De minimis.
|1 day 5 hours ago||"Matters"||
What do you mean that it "matters"?
Everything matters to some degree. I don't think it matters much. Do some people like a certain brand, yes. Is it hugely important to recruits, nope.
Of all the considerations for where to go to school, such as coaching staff, proximity to home, success of program, academics, amenities of the facilities, hot girls, etc. this one goes pretty far down the list,
I would even suggest that IF this happens to "matter" enough to beat out any of those other factors above, well.... that recruit has messed up priorities.

what are you basing that on? the fact Bama and LSU do it? what about just doing what north Korea does? if your friends were jumping off a bridge....

It's the michigan state fans. The UM/MSU game this year in the afternoon! In EL resulted in an arrest rate of 1 out of every 700 people in the. Stadium. That is getting arrested.... Wow.

So MSU didn't provide ejection numbers? If they did, I bet they would top the list.

...thread about the frat thing. I just respond to stupidity of the holier than thou with public figures.
|1 week 23 hours ago||rage?||
you can't read. nothing in my posts conveys anger or rage. now read yours.
as for the importance of your post in light of the circumstances... it has none.

neither thread is legit, but at least I know it.
|1 week 1 day ago||my point||
exactly. not thread worthy.
|1 week 1 day ago||funny||
|1 week 1 day ago||either that or not making a thread about nothing...||
there is a di#erence.
|1 week 1 day ago||every mention||
every mention of Michigan football in the paper is technically news. we don't start a thread for every 5-10 Michigan football articles published every day. it would get stupid quickly.

OSU is also the only Power 5 program in state. That means the vast majority are OSU fans growing up.

you are assuming a lot.

no apologizes for mobile posting spelling errors.

Dantonio did not have a shot with higher guys, but still choose 2 stars. he took what he could get even if they were not as good as others. Harbaugh has a ton of interest from high star guys, but CHOOSED to take these guys too. They are of the same quality to him. Dantonio didn't have that option. important distinction.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Dantonio route?||
Dantonio didn't have a hot with lots of highly rated recruits when he settled on his 2 star players. this is not what he did.

anybody who has proven themselves capable of a long NFL career are automatically more accomplished than potential rookie flameouts.

I hate to say it, but most of these recent crystal balls come from one michigan.247sports.com Basketball writer. He could just be on a personal tear.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||What kind of narrative are they selling there?||
Michigan has always recruited better than MSU. Last year MSU's class ranked higher for one reason alone, Michigan had an abnormally smal class. I check 247sports and the composite rankings show a consistantly higher caliber of player choosing UM. Even last year.
Michigan is virtually guarantted to have a class ranked higher than MSU this year simply because we can take roughly the same number of players.
I thought this was common knowledge.

And Chizik won a national tile. Oh, and years ago Kirk Ferentz was winning the Big Ten and a hot coaching name. Brian Kelly coached in the NC game too. Mack Brown was just like Les... He won a NC and played for another.

You're a dying breed. Someone who thinks Les Miles is a great coach.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Hoke||
He had success prior to UM. His resume heading into AA was about the same as Dantonio. He was coach of the year in two conferences and lead his teams to new heights (BSU to national rank and SDSU to its first bowl game in a long time). He got complacent at UM, but let's not pretend he was without more success than you mention.

And then the upper middle class names become middle class names....and then lower class names.... and then stripper names.
The whole point of that chapter is that people who choose trendy names are trying to be like richer people (for their own sake and their child's future). It is a very needy and insecure way to live IMO. Traditional names avoid all that ugly class aspiration on your kid's resume.
