Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.

I'm oddly optimistic. I have no source, just think we would have been eliminated by now if we weren't in the top 2 given he initiated contact with Michigan.

i dunno--i think i'd take brown over caris. you only get caris for one more year. you might get brown for 2, and his ceiling is higher. but at this point you root for caris because a bird in hand...

this is great news. really need the gold medal on this one; silver just won't do.
landing jaylen brown could have a snowball effect on subsequent classes

i used to love casey's tavern for burgers when i was in med school in ann arbor. don't see anyone mentioning them--have their burgers gone downhill?

love the video, but hate that website. does anyone else get so many technical issues when trying to watch these videos?

who auto-downvotes WD? i don't get it--his posts are almost always informative and on topic

i agree, but enough excuses. i love beilein, but we need some can't miss talent. the last two meh recruiting classes have hurt us. walton and irvin are solid but not spectacular. this past year's class is below average so far. we need a big pickup, and it doesn't look like it is happening this year. it better happen for 2016-2017 season

Coaching is 20% of basketball. The rest is recruiting. We need to actually land a Devin booker type.

Atrocious rebounding. This team is too young and not talented. Weirdly, they seem to play better away. Except during OT.

no way dude. it's not too late if he wants to come back to the good guys. you realize people were seriously entertaining the idea of braxton miller transferring to michigan AFTER he had played against us for 3 years and with his ohio tattoo?! and you're telling me you wouldn't take a kid whose heart was with michigan and he made a choice that he thought would be better for him, but was immediately proven wrong the day after he made that choice?!
i'm not sying he comes back, but if he wants to and is able to get out of his LOI, open arms!

exactly. and especially not in public where people could see him and allow an instagram photo of him in said shirt to be posted. further, msu and osu aren't rivals. to me, this is a statement or a kid being extremely naive. i doubt it is the latter given all that has gone down recently and the fact that he grew up a michigan fan.

certainly would be ironic if he was one of the osu coaches whispering sweet nothings into his ear at 10 AM on signing day...

exactly. i doubt he stays for more than 1-2 years. seems like a job to get paid, learn a few new things, and give some input. then move on to a coordinator job somewhere else refreshed.

i went outside when halftime started and threw the football with my boys so I can't comment on the halftime show directly. however, to those who say there's no great rock and roll anymore, listen to the following bands who all released great stuff the past 2 years: the war on drugs, strands of oak, white denim, foxygen, and spoon.

i myself had been thinking about rule 1, and how it might apply for marshall. although rule 2 also contradicts it a bit.

we win with weird guys. all hail beilein!
now let's beat michigan state (even though i guarantee izzo is already coming up with excuses since they have to play rutgers away 3 days before the game due to snowpocalypse 2015)

DB was a bad AD, sure, but no one would have predicted he would suck that mightily. i believe nearly everyone, including brian, thought he was a slam-dunk hire. but even once in a while a dunk ends in epic fail. that is DB: instead of the safe two-handed "game, blouses" dunk, he flamed out like a poorly conceived and overly elaborate attempt at a slam-dunk competition.
|16 weeks 3 days ago||ok, are people seriously||
ok, are people seriously downvoting this guy just because he happened to mention that he flies on private jets? who seriously cares? i don't fly on private jets, but found the statement completely innocuous. he's on mgoblog just like the rest of us posting about a college football team that we all irrationally obsess over. mgoblog is the great egalitarian cyber-enviroment of michigan fandom.

amen. i remember both. they were both great in their own way.
ty wheatley was probably the most talented back to play for michigan in my lifetime (i am 35). best combination of size, speed, power, and balance.
mike hart and jamie morris were probably the most determined backs to play for michigan in my lifetime. both were undersized, underrated coming into college, and underestimated. they both played low to the ground and always kept their feet moving.
