|6 hours 16 min ago||The ghost of Al Davis is||
The ghost of Al Davis is still there and will ensure they screw this up. This is sad because IMO the NFL is more fun.when the Raiders are good, but I can't shake the feeling they're going on a run of futility to match that of the Lions.
|14 hours 28 min ago||Exactly, no reason why he||
Exactly, no reason why he can;t go to a JC and then see what happens. I knows there's a couple in Arizona and a bunch in Texas he could try to play at. Snow JC in Utah is also(kind of) close by. Lots of options, just not maybe the one he wants.
|15 hours 36 min ago||Agree, You have to keep up||
You have to keep up relationships with the local schools or you get to an untenable position and lose a "safety" net. Look what happened to Rodriguez when the Michigan and Ohio coaches turned against him.
Maintaining talent levels is important, but there has to be housekeeping as well, which I think was the point of the Maisel article, but he was ham-handed about it.
|15 hours 59 min ago||There has to be something||
There has to be something missing as this sounds a lot like sour grapes. If you're a player you'll get found and there're enough FCS schools around that he should be fine if this was an issue.
Go to Junior College and try to get noticed again and fix the holes in your game or try to walk-on somewhere, maybe not what he wanted but sometimes life doesn;t allow you to pick Door #1.
There has to be something else going on here.
|1 day 9 hours ago||Eh, I turn off when they||
I turn off when they start bashing Michigan football, but for the most part I've found Valenti and Foster to be pretty good. Sure, there's a lot of MSU homerism, but I think it could be a lot worse. They seem pretty balanced about the Detroit pro teams and willing to give credit where it's due.
|1 day 12 hours ago||The wording he's using and||
The wording he's using and the quotes do make it seem as if he's basically trying to make sure he doesn't completely burn his bridge at Rutgers while taking Michigan seriously.
I'm taking nothing for granted right now(given the late timetable you have to treat every prospect as an added bonus if he signs and not have expectations), but this does seem like a good sign.
|1 day 13 hours ago||Despite the athletic||
Despite the athletic scandals, UNC as a whole still has a good academic reputation.
|2 days 7 hours ago||It's time for Coach beilein||
It's time for Coach beilein to apologize to the tribe of voodoo priests he apparently pissed off.
|2 days 13 hours ago||If this was USC, sure. UCLA,||
If this was USC, sure.
UCLA, doubtful. They'd win a lot more recruiting battles aginst SC if they had bagmen.
|2 days 16 hours ago||Not saying your perspective||
Not saying your perspective as a Trojan fan is biased, but SoCal sports radio is as full of Trojan honks as Detroit's is full of Sparty slappies, can't imagine why I'd be skeptical about what LA sports radio has to say............
|2 days 16 hours ago||Mora never interviewed for||
Mora never interviewed for the Jets job and the 9er's never approached him. Facts are fun things when you look at them. Not saying Jim isn't going to be here for a while but Mora has had numerous chances to leave and hasn't taken them.
|2 days 19 hours ago||And two more likely to join||
And two more likely to join in as well. That said two of them are more "athlete" types who can switch to receiver. Still you'd think there'd be more room to turn heads here than there has been.
|2 days 19 hours ago||I went to the Air Force||
I went to the Air Force Academy for undergrad, I KNOW I did college wrong.
|2 days 19 hours ago||I think that's more people||
I think that's more people saying "of course he'll follow his dad" than looking at his actual recruitment, just feels like he wrote off Michigan a while ago and isn't really letting them back in.
|2 days 20 hours ago||I am relaxed, just thought||
I am relaxed, just thought I'd relay some info from another perspective, along with a META comment on how Michigan's program is being perceived.
|3 days 3 hours ago||Huh? Why would you think||
Huh? Why would you think that. Mora has UCLA on an upward track and from all indications loves living in LA. Along with a fan base that has, mostly, reasonable expectations for football and thats a recipe for sticking around for a long time. Of the two coaches, I'd honestly bet on Harbaugh leaving before Mora.
|3 days 4 hours ago||There's been a lot of||
There's been a lot of Harbaugh and Michigan trash talk on the UCLA boards, think they're frustrated that Michigan keeps going after their commits and I guess some Michigan "fans" have been acting like idiots on Clark's twitter. The lack of success of the last seven years has also led to a "what track record" type of reaction when people bring up Harbaugh's track record with Tight Ends. Most of this is understandable and a good reason why it's time to start f'ing winning again in order to get back the respect that seems to have been lost.
Still, you'd think a fan base that has to deal with the batshit insanity of Bruins Nation would perhaps understand better that you can't judge a fanbase by a selected group of internet representatives.

Classy move and best of luck to him.
|3 days 8 hours ago||UCLA has four current corner||
UCLA has four current corner commits(Lockett, Samuel, Octavius Spencer, and Stephen Johnson) and is looking good for Dechaun Holiday. Makes for an opening with the right pitch,
|3 days 8 hours ago||Interesting..... Wonder if||
Interesting..... Wonder if he's decided to stick with the Huskers given he hasn't come to M yet.
|3 days 10 hours ago||Not entirely true. They have||
Not entirely true. They have a Y receiver they put in TE routes and use like Joseph Fauria and also have an O-lineman they throw out there for TE blocking kind of like Magmuson last year. It's not a huge part of their offense but they're trying to feature one more and figure Chris Clark is the guy. They were using a guy named Ian Taubler in a TE role a few years ago but he medically retired.

Glad he's graduating and hope he finds a great opportunity.
|4 days 12 hours ago||Good stuff and glad to get||
Good stuff and glad to get another offensive lineman on board.
|4 days 14 hours ago||Agree, we don't know what's||
Agree, we don't know what's going on with the team. Bellomy may be a great positive influence and a good scout team guy. Let's let everything play out. They may only get four more commits after all.
|5 days 4 hours ago||This is great news, hope that||
This is great news, hope that he and Malzone work together well and it's nice to get another QB on board.
|5 days 4 hours ago||Fantastic news and a great||
Fantastic news and a great way to break the seal, so to speak. Welcome Aboard!
|6 days 11 hours ago||Hard to blame him for jumping||
Hard to blame him for jumping off the ship when it was a dumpster fire and as much as it sucks, it's hard to fault a running back wanting to go to OSU, based off what we've seen the past few years. Let's move on, develop the hell out of the guys on campus/want to come and results will speak for themselves. Maybe we can do a bit of salting the earth back to Urban in return for his targetting Michigan target schools. This is a long road we're going to be on.
I'm not going to say best of luck to the guy, but I can't say I don;t understand the decision.
|1 week 17 hours ago||Gate will always be tacked||
Gate will always be tacked onto scandals because Watergate is one of the news media's favorite bed-time stories of heroic reporters taking down an evil establishment. Helps them sleep at night when their jobs have become spewing out the party line from their currently favored point of view.

It's a yawner and frankly, a slight advantage does not overwhelm the ritual sacrifice that took place last week.
That said, the Patriots do have a history with this sort of thing(or fine, Patriots homers, perhaps a history of being slightly more blatant about their cheating than other NFL teams) and I can see people getting a little tired of hearing about this "great organization" constantly pulling these shennanigan's.
|1 week 2 days ago||I'm pretty sure that finding||
I'm pretty sure that finding the Patriots are doing shady things to gain an advantage as a part of team culture would not surprise anyone west of the Charles River.
