|5 weeks 4 days ago||Didn't know that.||
Kozen was exactly the type of recruitment that I was talking about in my question. Not so much a "shaddy" recruitment, but one where the player seemed to 2nd guess his choice over and over.

|5 weeks 4 days ago||Serious Question||
Has there ever been a player that had a "unique" recruitment (as in multiple commits/decommits) that has gone on to be a star player in college? I can't think of one and feel like most of the high profile players who go through lot's of "strange" happenings during recruitment end up just fizzling out.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||There are rumblings of a||
There are rumblings of a decommit happening on Twitter. A pay walked link from Sam and a bunch of responses to it. The players name in question is on a visit to Louisville and if I had to compare his name to a snack it would be Reese's peanut butter cups.

Harbaugh found some old footage of Vicious Vic as a kid and simply had to offer him.

You don't sounds very high on him as a player.

I cannot wait until Michigan can simply impose their will on other teams. It's going to be gloriously fun to watch.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||What the hell?||
This is a sports blog, not a marketing center for Michigan Alumn's and their new businesses. Good luck to your buddy, but I hope to never see posts like this again.

I assume he was referring to Daelin Hayes based on his physical stature and athleticness.

|8 weeks 32 min ago||Oh yisss... Commit party has started.||
|8 weeks 2 days ago||Yep, that's exactly what I do||
Yep, that's exactly what I do now - data analytics for retailers. And I feel like the field is still in infancy. Sort of lucked into this consulting niche, but it's worked out well and I feel with an IOE degree you can just go so many directions.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||Went IOE and wouldn't change||
Went IOE and wouldn't change a thing. Most of my good friends in the major are at major consulting firms. I get to travel a bunch and am making over $100k at 25. Honestly, I'm very happy with how things worked out but had to just my ass and network like hell to get here. I just feel like IOE from michigan opens a lot of doors if you take advantage.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||I honestly wish I had more of a unique name...||
I have just about one of the most basic guy names of the last 20 years, but wish it were more unique. Think about when you meet someone with a cool name (not an absurd one) - you instantly remember that person.
I feel like this could really be benificial throughout life - having poeple immediately remember you from a first introduction. Names like Fletcher, Cortland, Bo - all good in my book.
|9 weeks 2 hours ago||According to Gary Battle,||
Someone please correct me if I'm wrong... but wasn't there a rumor that Bacardi's mouth has gotten him into some hot water before (specifically with Jaylen Brown)?
Maybe he should think twice and speak once from now on.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||Wow...||
Today I learned - I'd get owned in a drawing contest with a 7 year old.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||In hindsight||
|10 weeks 7 hours ago||Same.||
I read the headline as "Guy going to play quarterback at ND gets call from J(ohns) H(opkins) and switches to lacrosse."
And my first thought was - Good. To hell with Notre Dame.

I just think that it would be a cool cultural clash and in no way meant this in a negative way. I grew up in the Mid Atlantic region, went to Michigan, and now live in the deep South. I just find the traditions and practices of each region to be cool in their own way. Imagine the Big House scattered with some southern girls in dresses and cowboy boots!
|14 weeks 2 hours ago||In a perfect world, yes!||
I would love for our WRs to become great. But I would think that would be harder to do with a coaching carousel. Additionally, I feel like WR is one of those positions where a kid can just have "it" and you know that their skills will likely transition well to the college game. Think Treadwell, Speedy Noil, Diggs... all kids that you could tell would likely be very good in College.
|14 weeks 3 hours ago||Almost definitely told to leave it out...||
There is no way that question get's asked and you forget about the "accused" rape incident. All politics asside, that would be an event that I would NEVER forget if I were a kid.
|14 weeks 3 hours ago||I like Jedd||
I like Jedd and his brunt personality. Everything I've seen from interviews makes it seem likes he's a straight shooter. Now I have no idea how good of a coach he is, but he's had a lot of them even at the highest level.
I just wonder how long he is going to stay around. I would think that it has the potential to hurt WR recruiting, knowing that Jedd has never stayed in one place for too long. I seem to remember even Brian mentioning that this is likely a stepping stone for Jedd during the coaching interview. Because damn... we need some quality WRs to get on board.
|14 weeks 1 day ago||Agreed.||
DeMatha, Good Counsel, and (recently) Bullis are all strong prep schools that put out D1 prospects every year in MD. Nice to start a pipeline there.
EDIT: They are all very strong academic schools too. I knew kids from each who went on to Ivy's.

I would love to hear 110,000 people chear "aussie aussie aussie oy oy oy" when he punts at the Big House.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||I'm fucking ashamed at some of these comments...||
Brady Hoke is a great man by all accounts, but was in over his head here at UofM. So he's taking a tour across the country and learning from a wide veriety of coaching philosiphies. Good for him.
It would have been just as easy for the man, who was fired from his DREAM JOB, to lay low for a while and not do anything to better himself. This constant making fun of OUR previous coach who's a true Michigan Man through and through needs to stop.
|15 weeks 6 days ago||Two major things from this article..||
Wilkinson is the coach at Cocoa High School in Florida, a talent hotbed that includes Ohio State 2017 oral commitment Bruce Judson, a top-20 player in his class.
Dean had a second opinion from noted sports surgeon Dr. James Andrews. Wilkinson said Andrews' opinion was that Dean needed continued rehab on his knee and should be ready to resume full activities this summer.
I would assume this turns Bruce Judson off quite a bit. And sure looks like you're lying when arguably the best knee surgeon in the world says he should be good to go by summer.

Had a friend in college get an MIP and Drunken Disorderly... this was his punishment. Unfortunately for him, he didn't have a car on campus either, so many times he had to ride his bike over somewhere near State Street (I believe) to get breathalyzed. Twice a day.
