The thing to remember too with regards to Austin Hatch, is that while the accident left him unable to perform to his maximum potential and his basketball playing days in the college ranks are over; he is still probably good enough to take 99% of the guys on this board to school on the court. That's an amazing thought to me.

Wow, so the latest test results indicate that either the treatment has worked or the tumor could be getting worse and the only way to know for certain is to just wait and see? As a father of two young children, I can't even imagine the kind of agony Jason and Tammi Carr must be going through while they wait and hope for the best. My heart goes out to both of them and I wish for them the very best of outcomes.

If Austin Hatch's career aspirations include coaching at some level in the future, I can think of no better teacher / mentor to have than John Beilein. Student Assistant for the University of Michigan men's basketball program and a letter of recommendation from John Beilein will be some mighty fine credientials to be carrying around when he graduates.

Wait, you're saying fanbases as a whole tend to adjust their group narrative to put their team in the most favorable light in a manner that comes off as hypocritical to the objective observer?
I did not know that.

The sad truth about the current state of the MSM is that there is some numbskulll columnist on espn who has probably dedicated 1000 words to deliver the exact same analysis.

U of M Hospital and Michigan Stadium / Schembechler Hall are not close to each other. You'll spend a good 45 minutes walking there. That said, Ann Arbor is a great pedestrian city, so I highly recommend the walk. You can stroll through campus, you can stop by Ashleys (wide beer selection), Charley's (nice outdoor seating), or Dominicks (good sangria, also nice outdoor seating).
Sorry that your visit comes under such sad circumstances. Best wishes to your father.

So did Michigan State's in 2013, and things worked out pretty well for them. Not saying this program is ready to go toe-to-toe with OSU, but Michigan's defense should be very good and this conference overall is still pretty bad. All this seven win talk is just a hangover from the past 7 years.

Not sure where in any of my posts I claimed that Michigan under Carr was an elite program. I think Michigan has a stronger claim to elite status at least in the late 90's early 2000's if only because the Big 10 back then was arguably the best college football conference in the country, but certainly there are significant stretches where Michigan under Carr was not elite.
MSU's record under Dantonio is propped up by the Big 10 being awful. You can make the same argument for Ohio State too, I suppose, but they at least went out and won the National Championship and probably would've won two if they weren't on probation in 2012. I don't get the impetus to put MSU in the same category as OSU when all they have really to hang their hat on is one elite season. That's a big difference than being an elite program.
Dantonio will get his chance to prove me wrong since he's going to be playing OSU every season from now on and he'll be facing an improved Michigan, and probably an improving Penn State. My guess is that MSU follows the same trajectory as Iowa of the mid-2000's under Ferentz.

This is the correct answer given the current climate of Michigan athletics. An acceptable alternative could be Beilein.

Agree completely, I should've been more explicit in this regard. If Hoke proved anything in his time here, it's that good to great recruiting can't make up for mediocre coaching. That said, the numbers tend to show that those programs that are consistently elite, recruit elite players.
MSU has been good, but the results from the past 5 years still show a program that is very good, but not elite. They've been "elite" with respect to the conference, but that isn't saying much and provides an explanation for why MSU has been so "good" recently.
The reality is that if Michigan and Penn State start being themselves again soon, the team that is going to be on the outside looking in is Michigan State. 11-1 seasons are going to turn into 10-2 and 9-3 seasons and will probably settle out at 9-3 and 8-4, at which point I'm guessing Dantonio calls it a career.
|2 weeks 1 hour ago||It's hard for me to believe||
We should care because our biggest rival and the defending National Champion has a bunch of them. It's been shown here time and again that recruiting performance correlates very well with overall program accomplishment. The MSU model of picking up 2nd tier players and coaching them up only takes you so far. Dantonio has accomplished an extraordinary amount with the material he's had to work with, but if MSU takes the next step, it's because they've upped their game recruiting-wise.
Further, if MSU is the standard that we are aiming for around here, then we're shooting too low.

Fast starts are great, but this organization did nothing in the offseason to improve the bullpen, lost arguably it's best starting pitcher to free agency, and their best everyday player has not proven to be very durable the last couple of seasons. Talk to me in the middle of August.
In the mean time, enjoy the hot streak while it lasts, because it never does.
