that's unfortunate, but at least the interest is there on both sides

@umbig11- if "you are hearing announcement at the end of 2015", are you hearing that I will be happy with said announcement, if perhaps I were to be very in favor of us going back to Nike?

Does not sound like a transfer..."our work ethic will be unmatched" sounds like a new satellite camp or something else that will require the staff to work harder/more.

2002-03 SVSM. LeBron alone was a high school player who would've been an above-average NBA starter that year, and had 2 or 3 others guys who went on to be impact college players.

I think we will have one night game. It doesn't have to be a marquee opponent, imo if its BYU or Oregon St that would be great because the weather will be nicer. And since Brandon is no longer in charge, I fully expect it NOT to be branded UTL or anything. Just a game that happens to take place at night.

You should be downvoted for this, but I upvoted you for the Candian spelling "defence" #CFLFan

Massachusetts state criminal code establishes that one can be convicted of 1st degree murder for either premeditation OR "extreme cruelty or atrocity" which basically means that the act was committed in a fashion much more extreme/depraved than would have been needed to do the deed. Hernandez was convicted on the latter, likely because of how bullet-riddled Odin Lloyd's body was and numerous other aggravating factors. The jury could have convicted him of 2nd degree had neither of those factors been present.

That would not surprise me, Magnus. Nick is actually a pretty good writer, but his grudge-holding would make more sense if he was offended by something that happened to him in the past. With the performance of the team over the past few years pessimism was warranted, but he took it to a whole new level.
|5 days 1 hour ago||For someone whose full-time||
For someone whose full-time job is to cover Michigan football, Baumgardner is unusually pessimistic about everything related to this team and has always been, at least as long as I've been reading his work. Not everything will be smooth, but he has always gone out of his way to bring a negative perspective to things that look pretty good. He was also the last reporter to believe that Harbaugh was coming. He outright denied it as even a possibility all last year, and even when folks like Sam Webb were strongly hinting that it was going to happen, he was steadfast that it wouldn't. I have learned to not take anything he says too seriously.

We are getting away from making these numbers so untouchable. Erik Swenson wears 77 for his HS team so I expect him to be issued it when he gets here

We won't need to oversign to get to 25. This was always going to be a larger class due to uneven numbers over the past 4 years and with natural attrition we will likely have room for at least that many

You really want to get into semantics here? Correct, technically NJ and OH are not halfway across the country from each other but they are not close either, probably an 8-10 hour drive and miles apart culturally. Quick google maps search indicates Wayne NJ and Columbus are 547 miles apart.
|1 week 2 days ago||Of course he is...||
Kid from Jersey commits way too early to a school half way across the country with a liar of a coach, when he could take full advantage of recruiting trips and being the #1 target on many team's boards. Very little chance he ends up a Buckeye.
|1 week 2 days ago||All you taking potshots at||
All you taking potshots at Brady now, get over yourselves. He did more for this university than you ever did. We are in a better place with a much better head coach right now, but this is a man who loves (present tense) UM. Snark about his weight, his sayings or old quotes make you sound like a state fan.

If you believe for one second that the osu team doctors have more power over anything, including medical issues, than urban, you are wrong.

Keep giving the press examples of exactly what your fanbase says you aren't, Urban. It's all going to come back to bite you in the ass....BTW, same thing will happen to one or more of the Cass kids soon, just you wait.

IF Cal were to be the coach at Michigan, I (like most of you) would be very quick to dismiss his malfeasance. However, given UMs history with the Martin scandal, there's no way anyone with rules issues would even be under consideration.

As part of their contracts with the university, football coaches (and maybe all/some other coaches) get two cars annually from a dealer that contracts with the UM. Given Michigan's status with the auto industry, I'm sure there is a lot of pressure for those to be the higher-end American models and not an Audi/Mercedes type.
Other amenities include complimentary country club membership.

Just stop...the bagmen are real and they are especially prevalent in the SEC. Not every kid who goes to an SEC school was bought, and it may not be fair to this kid to make an accusation but to say it isn't a real factor is to be in denial

Recruiting is going to be like this until we see some results on the field. Urbz and co. are still negative recruiting UM like crazy and unfortunately many high school kids are naive enough to believe it all. Just win, baby, and everything will take care of itself.

Darren Rovell must have gotten rejected from UM as a teen or someone there must have hurt him somehow because half his tweets are just anti-UM trolling

Unfortunately I don't think Jim's success recruiting California means much here and now. The two schools he was recruiting CA kids to were both in California, so there was likely more of a chance kids would've wanted to go to his schools anyway. Also, being out of the college game for 5 years many of the relationships he made with HS coaches have weakened, or in some cases disappeared altogether.

So it's been what, a week since he left the team, and he's already had 5 different articles listing 5 different "primary reasons" for his retirement? Come on already.
