I'd definitely take him but I'm not sure that it would look good for us to take someone denied by another big ten school but it could be non academic related.
|48 min 6 sec ago||Agreed. Hopefully we can||
Agreed. Hopefully we can still get Bridges if he wanted to go here. Hopefully we don't get too complacent as other big ten teams are starting to get better recruits and lose our foothold in the league.
|2 hours 38 min ago||Looks like Dantonio is making||
Looks like Dantonio is making space after cutting ties with a recruit a few days ago and this.
|14 hours 7 min ago||Best case: We win every game||
Best case: We win every game by 50 enroute to a national championship while Urban Meyer leaves for Utah State.
Worst Case: We lose 77-7 to UNLV and go 0-12. Jabrill Peppers breaks his ankle on the first series against Utah and is out for the season. Jim Harbaugh leaves coaching to open a Culvers and we hire co-head coaches of Rich Rod and Brady Hoke.
|14 hours 11 min ago||I wonder what the Spartan||
I wonder what the Spartan reaction to this is. If Michigan let him back on the team, they would be crying foul.
|18 hours 2 min ago||Agreed. Women are qualified||
Agreed. Women are qualified enough to coach football but it's going to be hard to find a female who has the experience to do it compared to sports like baseball or basketball where there's a female equivalent in playing it.
|23 hours 2 min ago||Also, if they did it like in||
Also, if they did it like in past years, the line for Harbaugh might end in Saline.
|23 hours 6 min ago||I wish the adults could still||
I wish the adults could still get autographs and go but the ebay people ruin it for the genuine Michigan fans.
|1 day 22 hours ago||90 percent of Ohio is rolling||
90 percent of Ohio is rolling farm lands. It's no surprise that they are what they are without another college team and such a big state.
|2 days 1 hour ago||I think 2015 was a pretty||
I think 2015 was a pretty terrible recruiting class on par with 2011 but 2014 was a relatively good class that just had only 16 players bringing it down.

August 8th: Upshur announcement day
|2 days 2 hours ago||I'm not sure he has a huge||
I'm not sure he has a huge dislike for Urban Meyer. He just has a huge ego and a need to be a dick to everyone possible at all times.
|3 days 19 hours ago||Didn't Mattison get guys as||
Didn't Mattison get guys as recent as last year that were pretty good recruits? Harbaugh still has guys he turned into great players on the defensive side like Richard Sherman so I thought it could be a selling point to get at least some 4 stars to commit in the defensive backfield.
|3 days 19 hours ago||If thats what 93grad was||
If thats what 93grad was saying, it sounds like the typical spin job he does to make us look worse than we actually are. Dantonio has coached for twice as long at MSU than Harbaugh has at Stanford. Of course his accomplishments are going to look better than Harbaugh's college accomplishments given that Harbaugh has only been a college FBS coach for 4 years and was kicking ass in the NFL for half of Dantonio's MSU tenure.
|3 days 20 hours ago||Dantonio accomplishing more||
Dantonio accomplishing more than Harbaugh. You can't be serious. Our guy has been in the super bowl and went to 3 nfc titles. That is much harder to do than going to one rose bowl and cotton bowl in 8 years coaching.
|3 days 20 hours ago||Harbaugh would be up there||
Harbaugh would be up there with Saban or Meyer if he had been at LSU or Florida prior to coming here like those two instead of two typically downtrodden places like Stanford and the 49ers.
|3 days 23 hours ago||We could end up with only 1 4||
We could end up with only 1 4 star on the defensive side if we lose Gary. I was hoping to do better than that considering the offense we'll have to go up against in the last saturday in November. Kind of strange that Mattison's recruiting prowess has fallen off and Durkin hasn't lived up to his billing.
|4 days 16 hours ago||I don't think you ever should||
I don't think you ever should get to retire when you want to if the team's not winning. If you're not producing wins and are getting paid millions to do so, why are you entitled to stay around and coach?
|4 days 16 hours ago||I don't think he's a||
I don't think he's a superstar but he's clearly one of our better players at his position.
|4 days 17 hours ago||Isn't a 3.0 gpa pretty good||
Isn't a 3.0 gpa pretty good at a place like Michigan? It seems weird that he would be kicked off for competitive reasons for his 5th year as he would bring a lot to the table in kick return and slot.
|4 days 18 hours ago||Even if he didn't really want||
Even if he didn't really want to move back, Michigan could double what he makes at Tech easily and we recruit better players and are a bigger name. Michigan is 1st in hockey national championships and 2nd in all time wins. Then again he may want to stay at his alma mater and I'm just like an NFL fan during the Harbaugh process.
|4 days 20 hours ago||That's the point. If you hire||
That's the point. If you hire a Tom Anastos you're taking a risk of going deeper into the woods. Get Pearson while we still get top classes every year and recruit perspective hasn't shifted.
|4 days 20 hours ago||He never had an issue with us||
He never had an issue with us even when we were winning. He hates the buckeyes and I'd love to listen to somebody talk about how Cardale Jones doesn't play school during halftime of a Ohio St game and how Pitt is a much better school or something else instead of blowing Urban.
|4 days 21 hours ago||Why hate Mark May? He||
Why hate Mark May? He badmouths Notre Dame and Ohio State all the time and never seems to have anything bad to say about us.
|4 days 21 hours ago||Given the way recruiting goes||
Given the way recruiting goes in basketball Cassius will wind up at msu and this kid will wind up in Columbus
|4 days 21 hours ago||Well Cassius Winston is the||
Well Cassius Winston is the number 1 option by far. This kid looks like a good backup.
|4 days 21 hours ago||We need Mel Pearson like we||
We need Mel Pearson like we needed Harbaugh. I don't want to hire some random coach and go into the wilderness like Michigan football did for 7 years. Use that Nike money to get our hockey harbaugh.
|4 days 22 hours ago||1. Michigan football 2.||
1. Michigan football 2. Michigan bball 3. Michigan hockey 4. Any power 4 Detroit teams 5. All other Michigan teams

I don't really like Nick as a writer. I don't think he purposefully tries to do this but he always takes the negative side of everything.
|4 days 23 hours ago||I don't think Nuss is bad||
I don't think Nuss is bad either. Our run game improved. The truth is he was entering a sinking ship and has done good things at all his other stops.
