This is proof that sometimes recruiting stars do matter. Recruiting isn't perfect but high star guys tend to become superb players at a much higher rate than other guys. He lived up to the hype every step of the way. What a tremendous talent.

I'm watching Deshawn Hand and Damien Harris right now. I can't say I blame them, but it hurts.

2 hours of my life I won't get back. That was not an impressive effort.

4 of the top 7 from the Big Ten is stunning.

Today sucked, but two years ago we missed a bowl and now we are pissed that we are missing the playoff. Things are so much better and Harbaugh hasn't even had a chance to get his own kids playing yet. I hate losing but you don't wash away 10-15 years of dominance in 2 years. Today reminded me of Saban's Alabama team vs. Meyer's Florida teams from around 10 years ago with Tebow. It took some time but Saban got the better of him. You have to get the athletes on campus first to be able to do it. OSU is a juggernaut and it will take a little bit of time to get to that level. We are building in that direction.

I'm just so happy that we appear to very good at football and basketball at the same time. We may end up being one of the few universities that are top 10 ish right now in both programs. I can think of Louisville but not many others.

Sweet, the perfect time for some good news in this place.

We were bad tonight but we have come a long way in less than 2 seasons. I think Cole is better at Tackle than at Center and SP8 had a bad bad night but there is still a lot to play for. Smith is a great pass blocker but is just not that dynamic in the run game. I hope we get by Indiana but it is hard to see how we beat the Buckeyes without a couple more recruiting cycles.

Speight continues to get better. Hung in the pocket a couple times and took a hit while delivering a good throw.

Sadly, I'm expecting it to be a nail biter. I understand that logic says we blow them out but this game would make Sparty's whole season. I hope to God I'm wrong and we curb stomp them. I've just been hurt too many times.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||OSU didn't play well and||
OSU didn't play well and managed to get the win. Wisky slowed down their offense but OSU has so many weapons all over the place. It killed me seeing Conley, Webb, and Weber Jr all making plays. Meyer has built a juggernaut. I think Brown will find a way to slow them down but we will need some points to beat them. I'm thinking something around 28-24 or 24-21.

I really like Higdon and Evans. We will be tough at RB next season. Isaac looks good as well.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||Part of the reason we will||
Part of the reason we will see a lot of Freshman on the two deep is because the 2 classes before the 2016 were pretty lowly ranked for Michigan and the 2015 class (Harbaugh's first class) was extremely small. We already lost a couple guys from that 2015 class. The 2016 and the 2017 class were critical for the program. I have no doubt we continue to recruit well but will definitely feel those classes going forward. The young kids will definitely see the field this and next year.

I agree with:
and am surprised no one mentioned Spiderman 2 with Dr. Octopus.
Edit: Just beat to the punch

When I read the title I thought it was about a basketball recruit and I was pretty sad. That is how hard it is to keep track of these 16 year old kids with offers flying everywhere. Football recruiting will be fine. We still have lots of momentum. This is just something we will have to get used to.

I watched the video. I can't say for certain that was a gun in the the security individuals hands but I didn't think that part was disputed at the point.
Edit: This from ESPN so take with a grain of salt.

I agree the guy is a joke and deserves to crushed but it is a little disturbing seeing gas station security pull guns, point them at you, and then money exchange hands. You may feel like you really didn't have a choice. That being said, his "apology" made me even less sympathetic to him.

He took the Broncos from 1-11 his first year to back to back 8-5 seasons and a bowl win. He is recruiting very well at WMU as well. I think there is general interest of the the board to try to figure out who is going to be the next young hot coach. I remember when Brian Kelly was at GVSU and I was pretty sure he was going to do very well at a major college football job someday. That being said, I was on the Kevin Sumlin wagon for a while as well as funny as that seems now.
|16 weeks 5 days ago||I'm almost kind of||
I'm almost kind of sympathetic to people who sound off when a mic is shoved into their face after a tough loss (see Webber after either national title game) but she has lost the benefit of the doubt. It has to be tough to lose on the big stage but she needs to show some class.

Thanks for info, I ordered a whole bunch of new gear.

Off the top of my head...
1. Kids being born
2. Sorry, the wife gets the second slot
3. Passing the bar was pretty exciting
4. Buying our first home which was pretty big adult moment
5. Varsity letter in wrestling as a Freshman. It was only D3 but many good memories.

That came out of nowhere. Looks to be a nice pickup with an impressive offer list. We need a big O-line class so this makes a lot of sense. I trust the coaches have an eye for talent. It is even sweeter stealing a guy from MSU.

I love the heat. I rode my bike 60 miles, took the family to the lake for some beach time and washed it all down with some Oberon. There aren't many places better than Michigan in the summer.

It looks like these are the perfect hires. We were due for some good news. Hopefully, we can find a grad transfer this year and knock it out of the park recruiting for 2017.

Sadly, the depiction in Office Space is a 100 percent accurate.

I'm a 40 year old prosecuting attorney and I still listen to "The Chronic" on my way to and from work. It is still my favorite rap album of all time. I expected I would have gotten tired of it by now but I haven't.
First album I remember buying is Use Your Illusion Vol 1. I remember it was when they still had the long boxes.

I can't stand Goodell as there is no rhyme or reason to his decisions but alot of the blame goes to the player's union for agreeing to the system that is in place. I never understood why they didn't fight the issue harder during the last labor agreement. I would guess they thought they could kick the NFL's ass in Court if push came to shove.

i agree it isn't what it used to be, but it still manages to taste like Spring and nostalgia all at the same time. I think that is why I get excited for it everyear. It reminds me of being a kid. I will definitely have one the next time it cracks 65 degrees and the sun is shining.
|43 weeks 3 days ago||I honestly thought we would||
I honestly thought we would way over the limit at this point. I don't see any issue at all getting to the 85 man limit. Guys will transfer after Spring to get more PT somewhere. It happens to everyone every year.
