|1 hour 15 min ago||In basketball we've had the||
In basketball we've had the success and our recruiting has gotten worse from the days of us getting Mitch McGary or Derrick Walton. In football, we did fine last year recruiting with a coach on the hot seat. Butch Jones, James Franklin, Charlie Strong, and Brady Hoke had great first year classes. Why can Harbaugh not after being on tv late in the NFL playoffs for the last 4 years?
|1 hour 40 min ago||You need players too to win||
You need players too to win as well as coach. I'm sick and tired of recruits we have been in on in basketball spurning us to go to Kentucky and Duke and those schools winning championships. If the same thing happens in football as our miss rate has been higher than I can ever remember at Michigan for this class, they'll wind up at places like Alabama, Florida State, and of course Ohio State. Guess which teams were in the playoffs this year? Guess which teams have won the last three championships? Even your poster child for recruiting not mattering in MSU has a losing record to Ohio State and has never played in a NCG. Lets cut the bs and realize we need the best players coming in to win.
|2 hours 5 min ago||A guy offered by Uconn,||
A guy offered by Uconn, Syracuse, and Air Force. How's it going to go when he faces Ohio State's secondary who's three deep has been offered by everyone in the country.
|2 hours 22 min ago||What's happening with||
What's happening with recruiting that we're getting whipped like this? We had three highly regarded TEs in three classes with a defensive line coach in Hoke and now that we have a highly successful NFL coach at that position we have nobody at the TE position who wants to play here.
|3 hours 13 min ago||This is where DD proves his||
This is where DD proves his worth. We better get some good pieces for Price. Hopefully in the bullpen.
|20 hours 10 min ago||Football will never leave||
Football will never leave the top spot in America even if less people are playing it. It's the Super Bowl vs. the MLS championship.
|20 hours 23 min ago||Hiring Mel Peason and getting||
Hiring Mel Peason and getting the big ten to have MSU play twice in a row in Ann Arbor are the only 2 things left.
|20 hours 25 min ago||Yeah. Things like fan||
Yeah. Things like fan relations are important to being AD but if he hired Schiano and we signed Nike for 1 million a year he would be just another AD.
|1 day 2 hours ago||That looks more like Thad||
That looks more like Thad Matta to be honest.
|1 day 2 hours ago||Are we now the big ten big||
Are we now the big ten big ten network facebook page who posts something about Urban Meyer and Ohio State every day? So far this week, they've posted about a butter statue of Urban, a dummy prank, Cardale Jones tossing a boy into a pool, is Urban Meyer the best coach in college today, and breaking down reigning national champion Ohio State's qb options.
|1 day 4 hours ago||I'd definitely take him but||
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.
|1 day 4 hours 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.
|1 day 6 hours ago||Looks like Dantonio is making||
Looks like Dantonio is making space after cutting ties with a recruit a few days ago and this.
|1 day 18 hours 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.
|1 day 18 hours 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.
|1 day 22 hours 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.
|2 days 3 hours 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.
|2 days 3 hours 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.
|3 days 3 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.
|3 days 5 hours 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
|3 days 6 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.
|4 days 23 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.
|4 days 23 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.
|5 days 29 min 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.
|5 days 49 min 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.
|5 days 3 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.
|5 days 20 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?
|5 days 20 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.
|5 days 21 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.
