Hall is already in the fold (re your preference for "3")

But this is a really tough Q; Onewnu, Bredeson, Bush Jr., and on and on.

Maybe this is how Fuller is committing instead of doing a hat dance?
|1 week 1 day ago||Um, let's go ahead and not||
Um, let's go ahead and not lecture recruits given JH's recruiting style (which I'm fine with. But I don't need sanctimony in either direction).
|2 weeks 1 day ago||My guess...||
is the story is somewhere in the middle, no?
Not every time two sides have different takes on what went down, one of them is A LYING LIAR WHO LIES!!
Seems to me that the staff communicated to ES that his spot wasn't necessarily safe and he should do X, Y, and Z to firm it up or look around. Perhaps because, um, this happens all the time in recruiting; a staff nudges a kid out but lets him preserve the perception that HE chose to decommit. Seems to me that ES though, "nah, no thanks, I'll just stick with coming to UM," not thinking the consquence was actually getting left out.
In any scenario, the staff deserves some criticism for the message not getting through. But because ES's feelings are hurt doesn't necessarily mean I buy all of the nefarious implications; or that Jim Harbaugh -- known, for better or for worse, as being one of the most awkwardly blunt humans around -- just couldn't sack up to tell ES what the deal was until a few days ago...

Rutgers - just behind Furman, and Maryland - just behind NoDa State. DELANEY!!!!!!

No, you don't get credit for throwing bullshit at the wall and then admitting an "error"
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Yeah, feels like he cares.||

Same day as John L blowing that FG attempt right behalf half and OSU blocking an returning for the TD, right? "Playing their butts off and the coaches are SCREWING IT UP!"?

Jake B might not have ESPN insider, right? Rats.

I don't know. Maybe the networks don't know about wolverine1987's appointment conflict?

|11 weeks 4 days ago||I'd take this down||
I know OP meant no harm, but this is more than a hashtag or "unifying" thing for a community. I know OP knows this, and I don't intend to be guilt him, but mods, I'd remove this.

0-2 start for Wisconsin, yikes.
|12 weeks 3 days ago||Interesting video. May be my computer||
but not sure I'd say that's "very clear," but agreed that the TV replay seemed to consistently come after the WR went out of bounds (thus not showign the contact/non-contact that led him OOB).
|13 weeks 1 day ago||The Burke 3||
Never mind - I get your proposing the "foul up 3" strategy.
But man... that Burke 3 was from the parking lot. Calling it malpractice after Burke hits a 30 footer seems a bit like hindsight bias.

|15 weeks 1 day ago||Brady Hoke's a nice guy||
And hearing him talk about his time at Michigan has gone a long way towards helping me get over the MSU loss. Man, this program is in a better place now with JH.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||Yeah, it got shitty offensive||
Yeah, it got shitty offensive comments because some of our fan base can't resist obvious baiting; at least not when a keyboard is nearby. Not a lot of "discussion."
|15 weeks 3 days ago||Hill is the worst of the||
Hill is the worst of the Spartan fan base. But geezus, this thread highlights some shitty aspects of UM's fan base, too.
