Crazy how the responses have changed from just a few years ago. Michigan no longer commands the awe that it once did, that's for sure. I don't think it will take a ton to bring Michigan back, but Harbaugh and Wheatley certainly have their work cut out for them.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||While I agree that he doesn't||
While I agree that he doesn't have breakaway speed, he looks a step up from De'Veon to me. Higdon turns a corner or two in his highlights and outruns some guys; you never saw that from Smith in his HS highlights.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||It appears not, but as Brian||
It appears not, but as Brian and others have mentioned, he's more of an NFL guy and it wouldn't be too surprising if he was never interested in the position.

Butch Jones agent, you da real MVP. I think he parlayed little to no interest from Michigan into a fat raise for Jones. Pretty well done on his part.

Don't know why it wasn't clickable. This should be better, unless I screw it up again...

For those who refuse to read the Freep, thankfully Baumgardner also tackled this topic on MLive and you can still read about Mone here: http://www.mlive.com/wolverines/index.ssf/2014/09/truly_one_of_a_kind_michigan_d.html

After the Ray Rice incident, everyone in America should know that every single thing that happens in a casino will be caught on film.

Do you have a link to the Week 2 picks? I looked around and couldn't find it.
|26 weeks 4 days ago||And he's enrolling early too.||
And he's enrolling early too. I agree, I think with his combination of strength, size, and the fact that he'll have 6 months in the program, he'll definitely feature somewhere in the rotation next year.
|26 weeks 4 days ago||It's going to be interesting||
It's going to be interesting to see where he plays. I think he's a strongside defensive end if Michigan goes back to the Under next year, but a 3-Tech all the way if they stick with the Over.
|28 weeks 1 day ago||Man, read my previous posts.||
Man, read my previous posts. I don't troll. This is something I legitimately think. People, including many Michigan fans from what I've seen here and elsewhere, like to have it both ways when it comes to the way sport types interact with the game and the media. Personally, I don't particularly like Johnny Football overall, but I like that despite numerous attempts to crush his spirit, he still plays football and carries about his business on his own terms.
|28 weeks 1 day ago||Man, we've got a lot of||
Man, we've got a lot of crotchety people on this board. You can't both complain that Hoke never says anything interesting and also rag on someone like Manziel. At least interesting things happen when Manziel plays and talks.

As a Nats fan I just want to say thanks to Dombrowski. Going to see Fister this Friday, and I'm excited.
|28 weeks 1 day ago||It does mean he can, but||
It does mean he can, but people are speculating that he won't because he's going to be fed up wuth risking his health for free. Which is certainly something to consider for him.
|28 weeks 4 days ago||Can't confirm, he hasn't been||
Can't confirm, he hasn't been named in the rumors yet.
|31 weeks 3 days ago||Eh, this one isn't over. He's||
Eh, this one isn't over. He's only ever been there once, he's on a visit high, and it's completely across the country. We'll have another chance at this one.
|31 weeks 5 days ago||Thanks for the explanation,||
Thanks for the explanation, what you're saying does make sense.
And I did notice the 385 pound guy. Holy crap, there is a lot of sprinting in that young man's future.
|31 weeks 5 days ago||Where's the Beef?||
I'm curious as to why we don't have more guys on the lines over 300 when we're not a spread team. Alabama has 15 guys over 300 pounds, and while I know they play a 3-4, we also have a nose tackle position. It just seems like guys like Kalis and Dawson should be headed in the opposite direction.

HAHAHA pay a student athlete for their image?! You got jokes!
|31 weeks 6 days ago||People have been teeing off||
People have been teeing off on this on twitter. Rice gets two games but Terrelle Pryor gets five for getting free tattoos when he wasn't even in the NFL. It's also a four game suspension if you test positive for adderall. Just a farce.

The Thunder should redshirt McGary IMO, it just makes sense
|39 weeks 3 days ago||That's why they're so mad,||
That's why they're so mad, the SEC has a league rule that prevents them from doing so.
|39 weeks 6 days ago||Hey man, I live in DC, you||
Hey man, I live in DC, you never know how ridiculously technical and beaurocratic an organization can get.
|39 weeks 6 days ago||Illinois is within 100 miles||
Illinois is within 100 miles as the crow flies. What's the rule say, is that driving distance or map distance?
|39 weeks 6 days ago||If HTTV doesn't get funded||
If HTTV doesn't get funded then they don't get any of the money pledged meaning the return on a pledge (assuming you're on the margin) is much higher than any beveled guilt. You have to think about that as well.
|39 weeks 6 days ago||I've been dragging my feet||
I've been dragging my feet but plan to get in before the deadline. I imagine there have to be a few more like me out there.

Man, that would be great, if only it were actually funny.

Yes, yes it was.

So our offensive coordinator watched 10 to 12 guys throw all over the country and decided that Malzone was worthy of an offer?
No thanks, don't want, five stars only plz.
|42 weeks 6 days ago||A couple things: First of||
A couple things:
First of all, I said they weren't highly ranked when they committed. Beilein's strength has been landing guys before they blow up, whether that be while they're still in High School or when they get to Michigan. And if you can pull it off, it's actually the most efficient way to do things. You get high caliber players without having the equivalent level of competition for them. And most of these guys end up 4 or 5 stars before they get to Michigan anyway!
And second of all, just because Michigan had deep runs in the tournament 2 years in a row, the traditional basketball powerhouses don't just go away. Programs like Kentucky, Duke, North Carolina, Syracuse, Kansas, Ohio State, UCLA, and UConn don't just go away because they have one bad tournament. They're going to gobble up the majority of the 5 stars year after year. So yes, I'm fine with Michigan pulling in underrated players that blow up, it's the best way to succeed.
