"It's not about last year or who's here or who's isn't here," says your head coach. "It's about getting out here and competing and seeing who is here, and that's where we're gonna go."

|5 hours 27 min ago||Oh, I definitely will.||
I just hope I don't have to wait four plus years when he gets here for that like I'm still doing with Allen Gant.
|5 hours 30 min ago||No.||
I usually agree with you, but you are just bouncing things off the wall right now. Not many "who have control over their bodies....?" How do we know this kid does? We've seen a minute film of him catching like five passes. Every kid on my Single A high school football team could do what he did in the film.
|6 hours 39 min ago||Can you clarify?||
What is the other reason he got offered then at this point? There are plenty of 6'6, 200+ pound guys that have less than or equal to one catch in high school football.
|7 hours 3 sec ago||Well.||
It wasn't meant literally as in the board's lack of urgency is why Michigan football sucks right now. I do think the fan base has something to do with it - bitch about alternate jerseys, bitch about night games, bitch and moan about music in the stadium.
The university in general, the fans, the entire athletic department all needed overhaul. I think Harbaugh is the right guy to do it. I won't agree with every decision he makes just like this one, but I trust he'll make more right decisions than wrong decisions. In the end, will Michigan be elite again? Who knows --- we'll have to wait and see.
|7 hours 13 min ago||No, I don't think Harbaugh is OK with being irrelevant.||
But, does that mean we don't have the right to question if his moves are best to win a national championship? If so, why does this blog even exist? We all have opinions and like to voice our opinions. My opinion is simple: I'm not "trashing the kid.." I'm simply stating it IS MY OPINION that this was a bad offer at this stage in the game from Harbaugh. No harm, no foul, no big deal - just an opinion.
|7 hours 23 min ago||So.||
Where did the other two kids go who were in front of him? This Brother Rice you speak of and are so knowledgable about must be putting kids in the NFL like Long Beach Poly. So a simple question, where are the kids who were in front of him going? Surely, they are elite SEC caliber TE's to hold off a stud Michigan offeree who has one career reception.
|7 hours 36 min ago||Recruiting.||
The recruits love it. For that, it's important. For early enrollee's, it's important.
|7 hours 38 min ago||I'm worried......||
Because Michigan sucks at football and has for a while. The lack of urgency on this board is startling. Everyone is OK with being irrelevant. I'm not. I want Michigan to win again. I want Michigan to be great. I want Michigan to win championships - not be happy that Harbaugh took a legacy with zero offers and hope that we can just get to 8-4 this season.
That is so Iowa-ish it's not even funny.
|7 hours 44 min ago||Yeah. I am giving them shit.||
Because I haven't complained for the last fifteen years while I've watched us lose to Appalachian State, Toledo, and to Ohio State 13 times in that timeframe. It's very simple: you win championships by having good football players. No one can honestly say this kid is worthy of a coveted football scholarship at the University of Michigan at this point because, let's be honest, he's never even played in a high school football game.
Am I saying he won't be good or worthy of an offer in six months? No, I'm not. I'm saying if the Akrons, Furman's, and Western Michigan's of the world weren't beating his door down, why did we - other than the fact his father played for Bo 30 year ago?
|8 hours 54 min ago||I still can't get over this.||
We took an early commit from someone who has one high school catch in his career and zero offers. I guess I shouldn't be surprised: Harbaugh's first full Stanford class had a ton of 2 stars.
|2 days 15 hours ago||San Diego.||
In what year was this imaginary National Title claimed? Appalachian State won the championship in both years San Diego was good under Harbaugh.
|3 days 8 hours ago||I mentioned this...||
in the committment post on the front page. It seems like JB wants a few more big guys who can get the basketball off the boards. We'll see. I actually prefer his old method of "you don't need to rebound if you make enough 3's"........
|3 days 10 hours ago||2014 tournament?||
I remember Coach Beilein being a little dismayed after the 2014 loss to Kentucky. I think he said something like "They were just above the rim on us - nothing we could really do about it." I think that game left a bad taste in his mouth and he wants enough big guys that can get above the rim to compete with the big teams like Kentucky.
|3 days 12 hours ago||The biggest thing.||
I'm trying to stay level headed. I remember when Hoke first got here and pounded his fist, started recruiting like a God, won the Sugar Bowl, and I was like we are about to be THE MICHIGAN OF OLD.......... and then 2013 happened... then 2014 happened... I just want; I just need this time to be different.
|4 days 10 hours ago||Depends.||
I like day games so we don't have to wait.
|5 days 7 hours ago||Well...........||
Considering the fact that Michigan has landed one guy this millennium that Kentucky has offered, that is why I think he's going to Kentucky.
|5 days 8 hours ago||Kentucky.||
He's headed to Kentucky - like all the other elite five star talent in the country.
|6 days 9 hours ago||So.....||
Is the UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN FOOTBALL TEAM going 15-0 or 14-1 this season? Tough question, very tough.
|1 week 7 hours ago||3 years.||
It's been like that since Brandon inked the deal in 2012. Utah wanted Michigan at their place. Michigan wasn't going unless it was a primetimer on national television to open the season.
|1 week 7 hours ago||Good.||
We need more night games since we might actually, you know, be good at football again in the next few years.
|1 week 9 hours ago||I really think he needs another year.||
I'm really not being a maize and blue homer here. To me, his game really needs another year. The same way GR3's game needed one more year. Burke, Hardaway, and Stauskas were all ready and probably couldn't have taken their game to another level.
Mitch (darn), Caris, and GR3 would've all benefited from one more season to really fine tune certain parts of their game:
Caris - being a shut down defender and being the guy
GR3 - needed to solidfy his shot, especially outside range
Mitch - Durability, experience, and his low post game needed some work.
|1 week 14 hours ago||My thoughts as well.||
I know some may say, "Wow, 20 TDs and 5 INTs is crazy thinking..." Well, he had 16/5 at Iowa... Iowa... There is no doubt in my mind we have more talented players than Iowa. They just have to be developed.
|1 week 1 day ago||The bad thing:||
The Royals are also on pace for 162-0. Something has to give.
|1 week 3 days ago||Just in watching old film...||
Devin was awful. Really awful. He was a broken QB. Even when there wasn't pressure he was latched onto Gallon/Funchess. Also, he never put the ball in stride. Every catch was difficult.
|1 week 3 days ago||Wow.||
LA was really playing with some "weird guys" out there... I'm amazed they even knew how to shoot a ball in a basket. Izzo's "weird guys" weren't even capable of that a year ago.
|1 week 3 days ago||IT'S FRIDAY!||
Hope everyone made it out alright from the storms last night. Now it's time to get yourselves ready for this BIG TEN CHAMPIONSHIP RUN the baseball team is about to make! LETS GO BLUE!
|1 week 4 days ago||1997 PSU.||
In part, because I will always remember the Daydrion Taylor hit. I was only seven and that alone made me want to play football.
|1 week 4 days ago||Attrition||
We will have lots of early draft entries after we go 15-0 this year. So I'm looking forward to the #Fab25 coming in and keeping the winnning streak going.
|1 week 4 days ago||Lol.||
The fact that there are some oversensitive people who didn't want the university to show American Sniper tells me everything I need to know about why the stadium is the quietest 110,000 people anywhere in America on most Saturdays.
|1 week 5 days ago||Ohio State and Michigan State.||
I will never root for either of those schools. Why? Because when they win, we lose (recruiting, fan base wise etc. etc.) I do, however, root for the rest of the conference during bowl season, March Madness, College World Series and so on.
