It also says something that we're not replacing that talent. Still have a ways to go.
|4 days 16 hours ago||It's not about him making a mistake||
I don't think he's making a mistake even if he goes in the second round. I think he'll do very well in the NBA. He was playing out of position for the Wolverines and with the way the NBA is set up he'll do fine.
What it's about is that this is terrible for the program. Who plays the four next year? Donnal? Not exactly excited about that. If McGary goes, which is still a possibility, then we're even more screwed. Fact is, we had no backup plan for this situation and most people I was talking bball with last year thought it was a solid possibility. We better be prepared for when Irvin declares early next year. We're not replacing our talent.

Bar soap (two words though)
|1 year 9 weeks ago||Really?||
He had obviously innocent intent. People like you are the idiots for not seeing such a clearly constructed joke. It's people like you that see a few bad things happen in the world and then see shadows with knives in every corner that are the idiots. You're the one that is socially awkward with no connection to reality.

That Green fell right into our lap. With Miami's sanctions, the train wreck that is Auburn, coaching change at Tennessee, etc...... Mark Dantonio could have recruited this kid to Michigan. I'll be ecstatic when we land him but it doesn't say much about Hoke's recruiting ability, either way, if we do.
|1 year 22 weeks ago||How is that trolling?||
People should be allowed to post criticisms. The coaches aren't perfect. This site shouldn't be one big circle jerk, it should be a forum for honest discussion. That said, the kid says the coaches aren't recruiting him as much as they used to or as much as other coaches. You don't get a much better source than that. So saying the coaches should step up their recruiting game isn't trolling, it's a fact. At least as long as they still want Treadwell.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||That's what I took it to mean as well until the mods at Rivals..||
|1 year 25 weeks ago||The Derrick Green section is not good news||
You failed to bold the last portion of that quote from the article. Farrell is saying despite Michigan being the best choice for Green, he thinks Green is thinking somewhere else. This was discussed thoroughly on Rivals. Draw your own conclusions but Farrell doesn't think Green's coming to Michigan, and he's by far the most tuned in to Green's recruitment.

Go F yourself.
|1 year 38 weeks ago||Why not?||
They do, in fact, do this for a living. Just b/c they're not physical specimens that made it big in football doesn't mean their understanding of the game is any less. When they spend every day of their work week analyzing and talking football prospects, I think that qualifies them as experts.
|1 year 41 weeks ago||Hope he comes to Michigan||
Looking like he won't be though.
|1 year 41 weeks ago||Only person being racist here is you||
There's absolutely no need to cry "racist" over a comment that isn't. You're purposefully instigating a bad situation.
|1 year 42 weeks ago||I get that you just spend your time on this blog only||
But that's not a reason to say most of the posts in this thread are stupid. If you spent any time on the pay sites you'd realize that the chances of Michigan landing Treadwell are dwindling fast. And they're a lot more in tune with his recruitment than anyone on this site.
|1 year 46 weeks ago||Poggi and Hurst play completely different positions||
Hurst will be a nose tackle and Poggi will be a strongside defensive end/3 tech. They have nothing to do with one another. And Poggi has visited and loved it.
|1 year 52 weeks ago||Yes, he would be||
Michigan's class is full at LB but they've made it clear to him that they're holding a spot for him. Announcing this early has nothing to do with either class filling up. He's just seen everything he needs to see and is making a decision. Your optimism is commendable, but just be careful in setting yourself up for disappointment.
|2 years 5 days ago||This is a really juvenile response||
You're reacting out of anger that the kid isn't going to Michigan. He's right, that is recruit speak for "make a big deal out of me". I knew it then too. Please don't pretend like it doesn't happen, b/c it does all the time.
|2 years 1 week ago||The kid has named almost every school his leader after visiting||
I'm sure he had a great time and we'll have a decent shot with him but take all of this with a grain of salt. USC, even after seeing his quotes here, still feels confident they'll get him. They don't feel that way with Ty Isaac though.
|2 years 1 week ago||Not exactly sure why you're this excited||
about a player that will never get more than 5-10 minutes of playing time a game. Do you get this excited over every acceptance to the University of Michigan? If so then I applaud your magnanimity.
|2 years 2 weeks ago||That is NOT a hype video for that game||
What a terrible hype video. It was just a highlight video for the 2011 season. 5 seconds of Nick Saban walking at the end is pathetic.
|2 years 3 weeks ago||You are pulling that out of your ass||
That was only ever speculation by people. We'll be taking pro-style QBs, but that does not mean that some of the pro-style QBs won't be very athletic. Also, we'll take athletes in a class that could possibly play QB but we won't be taking athletes for that purpose. We'll recruit them for other positions and if they happen to work out at QB then cool. But there is definitely no way that we'll recruit athletic players in every class with the intention of trying them out at QB. We're only recruiting QBs for the pro-style and just one per class unless there is a need for 2.
|2 years 5 weeks ago||Kind of agree||
Don't necessarily think they need to slow down but we're right in there for some top talent at CB and it would be nice to let a few of those recruitments play out a bit first.
|2 years 6 weeks ago||So?||
This is almost entirely irrelevant. He didn't even have an offer from us.
|2 years 6 weeks ago||lol||
Ricky Gervais is NOT a legend in his field. Infamous, but not a legend.
|2 years 6 weeks ago||We already know we'd take at least 3 LBs||
This was established last week on Rivals.
|2 years 7 weeks ago||Hearing right now we'll probably take 3 actually||
According to Josh Hemholdt and a couple others at Rivals. Levenberry, O'Daniel and Gedeon are the likely ones.
|2 years 8 weeks ago||So?||
It's a good thing he hates Michigan. It makes me like him more. Means he's a Big Ten guy. He went to Northwestern. He's supposed to hate Michigan. It's not like he went to Texas A and M and hates Michigan. If you went to Northwestern you'd hate us too and I'd expect nothing less. Look at the history of beat downs we've given them in the past.
|2 years 17 weeks ago||He got the joke||
I'm pretty sure he's a nerd as well and the comment wasn't meant to be mean.
|2 years 17 weeks ago||This is not flamebait||
It is a simple opinion. Stop nixing comments b/c they're not 100% supportive of michigan or mgoblog.
|2 years 18 weeks ago||THIS IS NOT FLAMEBAIT!||
I'm getting really sick of the mods on this site nixing everything they don't agree with. Just b/c they don't agree with it doesn't make it trolling or flamebait.
|2 years 18 weeks ago||You miss the point then||
At that time, most people said "trust the coaches, they know more than we do". That seems to be such a common thing still being said. I'll just never understand why. The coaches are people, like the rest of us. They're just as susceptible to mistakes. Our current staff is no different. To support every decision they make b/c they supposedly know more than us is literally stupid and really it's arrogant. It ignores the fact that there's 119 other staffs in the country evaluating players. When our staff takes a player that nobody else wanted, everyone here says "trust the coaches". So our staff is the only one that knows what they're doing? Anyway, I'm done ranting. My guess is in a couple years we're all going to be regretting their decision to not take Schutt. Especially since he's now going to be playing for our biggest rival.
