How are they not giving improper benefits with a car like that?

Go to the lacrosse game next Saturday against Penn State inside the Big House.

What ever happened to that guy.

It doesn't really take much anyways. Bring back locker room tours, bounce houses for the kids on the north side of the stadium, lacrosse before the game, holding it 2 weeks after we did this year, and Harbaugh. That wouldn't cost the university much at all and we'd get a big crowd.

It's not worrying. We'll be fine regardless but why are people on here so against having 100,000 people at our spring game? Imagine how good that would look to recruits vs. if we had about a 80 percent empty stadium after they visited Ohio State's spring game. We're in a battle with Urban Meyer for the next Charles Woodson or Desmond Howard and every little bit helps.
|21 hours 29 min ago||All the little things add up||
All the little things add up in the minds of recruits. You try to eliminate or reduce the disadvantages your program has. If recruits like fountains then by all means put fountains in Schembechler Hall. We're never going to have the weather that USC, Florida, or Texas has so we'll just have to live with that.

It matters because if a recruit goes somewhere with 90,000 people and then goes somewhere with 10,000 people it could dampen his enthusiasm for the place. If you look at the top attendance getters and recruiting, they correlate pretty well: Alabama, PSU, Ohio State, Tennessee, Auburn etc. Of course USC and LSU recruit well without big crowds but why not go for it? There's no down side to a big crowd.

So we have a good shot at Onwenu, Jordan, Davis, Bredeson, and Swenson. That would be a good haul at OL.

It helps recruiting to have a ton of people in the stands. If PSU, Ohio, and Nebraska are all getting over 60k a year we need to have similar numbers.

Bottom line is if you score a million points, everybody thinks you're going to be great in the fall. If you score no points, you're gonna suck. In reality you're defense could just be really good or bad.

Like Desmond Howard and his silly Heisman Poses?

They had a very bad defense last year.

I think we're more likely to lose to Minnesota than either PSU or Maryland. Our secondary will definitely help us against Hackenberg and I think we sacked them a million times last year.

If Nick Saban, Mark Dantonio, Urban Meyer etc. were all hard after our recruits then they must be good. It's what happened after they got there that sets it apart. If Harbaugh gives them the correct coaching like then you could see massive improvement. Zook recruited well and Urban developed them. Shula recruited well and Saban developed them etc.
|1 day 19 hours ago||If he beats Rutgers and||
If he beats Rutgers and Maryland we finish 7-5 this year and that doesn't require much improvement from last year's team. Just better in game decisions and play calling.
|1 day 19 hours ago||Hoke has recruited talent but||
Hoke has recruited talent but it's largely on defense. His coaching is piss poor on offense. Most of the reason Ohio went 6-7 is because they were missing like 4 of their best players for most of the season and Fickell is a terrible head coach. Their 2011 team would beat our 2014 team by a lot.
|1 day 19 hours ago||Don't think the spring game||
Don't think the spring game means anything really with regards to how good we are. If we had our starting lineup against starting defense and got demolished then ther's cause for worry but we already knew that we were deeper at DL than OL. Our starters gashed Ohio State for 28 points in the shoe last year so there's potential there. It comes down to whether Rudock can throw enough to loosen the defense.
|1 day 19 hours ago||I didn't think it correlated||
I didn't think it correlated well because Urban Meyer wasn't resurrecting a program. Tressel wasn't fired because he didn't win enough.
|2 days 10 hours ago||Why not have everything||
Why not have everything better than them? Touch it up. Put electronic ports in it like other schools, paint the walls, etc. This is something we talk about all time in the facilities section of my sports management masters courses.
|2 days 10 hours ago||In this particular instance||
In this particular instance yes.
|2 days 10 hours ago||Really. The difference is as||
Really. The difference is as large as the Grand Canyon. I realize the sentiment around here is that we don't need facilities, we don't need recruits, we don't spring game attendance. We'll win because we're Michigan but it is quite different.

Are we going to renovate this locker room? I always thought that ours looked kind of plain and MSU spent 27 million on theirs at their stadium.

Wings need to make more moves. Holland has done jack in the last few years.

Was just thinking this. I'm at Westerns spring game today. Beautiful weather
|3 days 11 hours ago||It ain't the thread for it||
It ain't the thread for it but I stand by my belief that we need the best talent like the Tigers got Cabrera and Victor Martinez. Why make it harder for you when you've seen that the past 11 nc teams have had a top 10 class. Our arch rival has multiple top 5 classes and maybe Harbaugh will still get top 5 classes. When the summer comes I expect it to pick up. Good night.
|3 days 12 hours ago||Agree. We're his only offer.||
Agree. We're his only offer. Our other 2017s have offers from 7 schools already. We need kids who can beat Urban Meyer. Being good and losing to elite teams because we're not talented enough doesn't cut it.
