Excellent post Brian
|11 weeks 2 days ago||This||
This is easily one of the dumber threads I've read on MGoBlog, and that's saying something.
Who cares what some jerk at 247 thinks of this guy. If you dont like him, don't go on his blog.

I went to Rick's last year. It was really busy and fun.

When Norfleet becomes an all Big Ten safety I'm gonna post the link to this in all of Brian's stuff.
And then I'll probably get banned.
|27 weeks 1 day ago||I'm saying Jones doesn't view||
I'm saying Jones doesn't view CMU as his best possible option. Conley obviously doesn't either.
|27 weeks 1 day ago||It depends on how "committed"||
It depends on how "committed" the committed prospect is. Maybe, but it seems he has done alright for himself with Oregon (if he visits) and Ohio State.
|27 weeks 1 day ago||He couldn't take visits||
He couldn't take visits earlier this year because no one else was offering him.
|27 weeks 1 day ago||And I agree with you. In all||
And I agree with you. In all likelihood Jones and Conley are approaching their recruitment in the exact same way.
|27 weeks 1 day ago||I don't think you understand||
I don't think you understand me- I'm not criticizing Conley. I said it was a smart strategy and not surprising. If I was a recruit I'd probably do the same thing.
|27 weeks 1 day ago||Such as...||
|27 weeks 1 day ago||Correct me if I'm wrong||
Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't it clear what Conley is doing/ has done for his recruitment? U-M was his first big offer- he committed to save a spot (in case he ultimately decided to go to Michigan) and ensure a full college scholarship in case of injury during his senior season. Now that his senior season is ending and other big name schools are after him, he is deciding to look around and get the official visit treatment It's a pretty decent strategy and not surprising.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||Strategy||
I'm liking the strategy here.
Don't answer the recruit's calls and make him think you got other prospects you're checking out.
I use it on the ladies all the time and it never fails.

This is probably the best Brian post I've ever read.
|1 year 22 weeks ago||It depends what you want||
Like others have said- if you want the really best locations and nicest homes on campus you've gotta start your search in September or October. But if you want to live a little farther away (8-10 minute walk) you can search now or even in the summer. The prices will be a lot cheaper (houses desperately trying to get filled). I guarantee you there will be places available next July, with Landmark and Zaragon West being built this year. My roommates and I found our last house in July and looked at a few others before deciding on it. I found the house I'm living in now in early September!

Who is that really nerdy looking guy in Ace's picture? Kind of looks like a young Jeff Goldblum.

How can you not include Brennan's or Commander's Palace in your write up?

Thanking RR for this season is like thanking the guy who buys the groceries at a four star restaurant
|1 year 25 weeks ago||Question||
Does anyone have experience driving down on a football Saturday to Ann Arbor from Macomb/Oakland County? I'm driving to the game for the first time and wondering what kind of traffic backups I'm going to be looking at. If I leave at 8 am what time can I expect to get to AA? Should I leave earlier to be safe? Will be taking the standard 275 to 14 route.

|1 year 27 weeks ago||Question?||
Did the offense prove it could consistently perfom against a decent-to-good defense last year?
|1 year 27 weeks ago||Really?||
Did you watch Gardner these last few weeks?
|1 year 27 weeks ago||Stupid||
Sounds pretty stupid to me.

"About ten months ago, Michigan was 1-6 in the Big Ten and people were emailing me nasty things about John Beilein's job prospects."
And you were writing nasty things about John Beilein's job prospects.
