- He is from Florida (yeah it's the opposite end, but it is Driveable). Michigan is not. Maybe he wants to stay somewhat close to home.
- Maybe he hates the cold. Some southern kids don't want to live in Michigan winters. I wouldn't blame him and it Doesn't mean he is dumb!!
- Even though we didn't take a TE, our TE position is not automatic playing time. When He steps on campus you will have , RS Sen Ian Bunting, RS Junior Gentry, RS Junior Wheatley, RS Soph Nick Eubanks, RS Soph Sean McKeon. Plus on top of that, Michigan could take 3 TE's this class. Playing early would not be a given. And actually I am not super familiar with Miami's roster. But a quick search shows they don't have many TE's on their roster. They are a pro-style offense that also uses their TE's. So Playing time actually could be easier there.
- Not sure why people are so hung up on his dad played here. My dad graduated from Michigan St, but I never wanted to go there. Where my dad went to college didn't play a roll in any sort of way when I was picking my college.
- The rebound on the free throw was given up by Wilson, so subing Duncan for Wagner or Donnal wouldn't have mattered. Wilson still is the one who got beat.
- Even if you subbed Donnal in, then you lose a ball handler once Oregon pressures (which being down they would have). Don't get me wrong Robinson is not a great ball handler, but I would much rather him take the ball down the court in that scenario then Donnal.
- Steve Addazio at Boston College (Meyer's OC at Florida)
- Gregg Brandon was Head Coach at Bowling Green (OC at Bowling Green)
- Dan Mullen at Mississippi St (OC at Florida)
- Mike Sanford was HC of UNLV, now Indiana St (OC at Utah)
- Tom Herman was HC of Houston, now Texas (OC OSU)
- Out of state Tuition is actually closer to $60k - $65k (with housing, fees, etc) a year. Lets say they are in school 5 years (not all students graduate in 4 years or take grad courses). Your talking about $300k - $325k
- Another factor that you should think about is number of kids. If a person were to have 5 kids that he was going to pay college for, that's $1.5 Million just in College Tuition. That's a lot of money, I don't care who you are.
- On a completly different thought process. Let's say the rich parent does budget $300k for student to go to college. He gives the kid an option that he can take a prefered walk-on, and makes his team marginally better (maybe) by freeing up one scholarship. Or he can take the scholarship (no cost to parent) and use that 300k for a house after college. What do you think most 18 year olds would do?
|5 days 10 hours ago||Those are the only reason he wouldn't pick Michigan??||
Pepto Bismol is way off on his post and very ignorant for putting that it has to be one of his three reasons:
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Fired by any job||
If you underperform at most jobs for 4 or 5 years you will get fired. That is especially true when you get paid over $200k a year.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||255 is an extremely old report||
255 was the weight he was listed at 2 years ago, during his sophmore year of high school!!
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Illinois for sure||
While I think that Archie Miller is a good coach, he is replacing Tom Crean who has won the big ten outright 2 times in the last 5 years. Where Brad Underwood is replacing John Groce who hasn't even made the NCAA tournament the last 4 years, and hasn't even been close to competing for a Big Ten Championship in his 5 year tenure. Illinois should and will be better then they were in the Groce Era.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Agree that Walton doesn't get the chance to drive||
Like others said I'm sure Oregon was instructed to foul the instant anyone gets by you. That would just led to an even later inbounds play. The other thing I don't think people are thinking about is that Walton isn't the type that is going to burn people off his first step dribble. In order for him to get free he typically needs a screen. With 9 seconds left and pressure forcing them well past the 3 point line, it would have been hard for him to make it to the hoop even if they didn't have fouls to give.
That exact shot is why he has been so good of late and one of the main reason we even made to this point. So I was and am extremely happy with that shot choice!
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Agreed about officiating||
I don't think officiating was that bad either. Yes there was the travel and questionable DJ 2nd foul. But there isn't a game in the world where 1 team hasn't thought there was a bad call or two.
Also I don't want fouls to be reviewable. If the officials review every foul, this will greatly decrease the flow of the game. I already think there are way too many tv timeouts (why do you need a TV timeout every 4 minutes? Especially if there was just a timeout or stopage within the last minute?)
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Boucher isn't their best player!||
That distinction goes to Dillion Brooks. Don't get me wrong Boucher is good and they have and will miss him. But he is not their best player. He was a very very good 6th man, but Dillion Brooks is their best player.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||2 things||
I'm actually also not sure what the rule is for substituting before a 1 and 1. I know when there are 2 free throws awarded, teams are not allowed to sub before the 1st free throw.
It's easy for people to sit back and 2nd guess after the fact. But If Donnal comes in and misses a box out or turns the ball over then the same people will be complaining that he was in.

Mich 65 - Oreg 59 in an unexpected defensive battle
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Typically there is no Re-Entry||
I am not going this year, but I have been to a few years of NCAA tournament games. As AliWeezy said, there is typically no Re-entry if you leave. So this idea wouldn't work. You have to buy the ticket for both games!
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Big Ten Tournament Title and 7 Seed||
I can't imagine that a Big Ten Tournament title and a 7 seed in the NCAA tournament is going to factor much in to recruiting. Are recruits going to be like "Wow Michigan is a 7 seed so I want to go there"...No I don't think so.
|7 weeks 8 hours ago||He's averaging 26.3 PPG||
This year in the D-League he is averaging:
PPG: 26.3 (Tops in the league)
|7 weeks 2 days ago||It's hard to get speed down||
Speed is hard to get much better at in just a couple months. Some people just have it and some people don't. I'm not saying you can't get faster, but people act like if you train for a month and a half, then you are going to knock off .2 or .3 seconds off your time. That's not going to happen! I've never considered him a burner, so his time really isn't too much off from what I would have guessed.
Also I'm not wild about people questioning a kid's work ethic when they have no clue what is going on with him. Even if he didn't get much training in, you don't know why. He could still be in a full workload of classes, he could have been sick or injured which prevented him from training, or he could have busted his butt training and this is the best he could do.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||A 6 seed?||
Come on bro. The only way Michigan would have got a 6 seed is to Win out, that's including the tournament. One road loss at the buzzer to a pretty decent team is not going to change our seeding too much.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||Ballsy Call by Collins and Northwestern||
That last play was just a ballsy call by Collins and Northwestern. If no one touches the ball and it is thrown out of bounds, then Michigan gets the ball under their basket with no time taken off. Most coaches in that same position just throw a short pass and let them throw a prayer up and settle for overtime.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||I was impressed by the game overall, but everyone is blinded||
Beilien almost gave away this game by dribbling out the clock starting at 6 minutes left in the game. If it wasn't for a last second off balanced duck under Swanigan hail Mary 3 By Walton with a minute left, then this is a lot closer or a loss.
|9 weeks 5 days ago||#SitTeske||
Teske looked awful on both ends of the floor. He played 2 minutes had 1 turnover, and another pass that hit his hands that was a tough catch, but still should have been caught. He didn't get charged with that turnover, but Moe Wagner or donnal makes that catch and there isn't a turnover there. I think his plus/minus was -6 and he only played 2 minutes. #SitTeske
|9 weeks 6 days ago||Lions don't have any other player in the top 100 in PFF.||
I'm not saying Stafford is a top 5 Quarterback. In my thought he is a boarderline top 10ish QB, but he isn't awful and I don't think he is the main issue with this team. The Lions lack talent everywhere. PFF grades only him and Prater in the top 10 of their position group. The Lions don't have an Elite player at any position (including QB).
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Morgan only played 22 Minutes||
I could be wrong, but alot of those offensive rebounds came when Morgan was off the court. I can remember a handful of them coming when Horford was on the court.
|14 weeks 5 days ago||Actually||
Actually Meyer has a pretty good list of OC's that are head coaches
And I guess I am not sure how you don't think Durkin or Ash ran theirs? Durkin ran Michigan's defense with Harbaugh as coach who is more of an offensive minded coach. Ash ran OSU's defense with a offensive minded coach in Urban. Did both of the coaches have input? I am sure they did, but that doesn't mean they didn't run their defenses.
I don't think anyone thinks Drevno has complete control of our offense, because he doesn't. But he plays a big hand in it.
|15 weeks 2 days ago||Tom Rathman||
He coached under Harbaugh for 49er's and no word on his job status yet since Chip Kelly got fired. As a player he had 1,400+ rushing yards as a FB. He won 2 Super Bowl rings. As a coach he has been coaching since 1997 and had a 3 year stint as Lions RB coach.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||Couple Additional Thoughts||
There are a couple other thoughts about this:
|16 weeks 5 days ago||I would prefer to having a Starting QB returning, but teams||
Don't get me wrong, I would prefer to having a Starting QB returning, but just because a team doesn't have a returning qb doesn't mean they are going to be bad or the divisions would be "unbalanced". This year 5 of the top 9 teams in the final college football playoff rankings didn't have a returning starting qb. Again most teams would prefer to have a starting QB returning, but sometime it can actually be a good or neutral thing for a team.
|18 weeks 12 hours ago||I watched that game||
I watched most of that ND vs NC State game and that was truley one of the worst game plans i've ever seen. ND threw 26 passes in a hurricane. They didn't see committed to the run, and gave their running qb only 1 snap the whole game.
|18 weeks 12 hours ago||2011||
That game was actually 2011. Rich Rod was still our coach in 2010. But I do agree with you on the Iowa game. That game still makes me sick. Over and over they kept lining Denard under center and trying to make him a pocket passer until it was too late and we were down a few scores.
I looked up the Mgoblog offense for that game and look at these numbers:
In their base offense (non hurry time late in game while behind). Michigan ran 49 plays. Of that, only 22 were run in shotgun. That means 27 plays with Denard Robinson under center. To help you remember how much better Denard and our offense was in shotgun, look at the run breakdown for that game:
Ace package: 6 carries at 2.6 YPC
I-Form Package: 11 carries at 3.4 YPC
Shotgun: 15 caries at 6.3 YPC
|18 weeks 6 days ago||Probably Edelman||
If Riddick was 100% I would role with Riddick, but he is banged up and still questionable. Even if he does go in the game, I would imagine that he gives up some time to Zenner and Washington who has played pretty good the last couple games. Edelman is playing Denver, but I have to assume he still sees 6 - 10 targets.
|19 weeks 15 hours ago||Still have to earn it||
The Pacers actually have experienced NBA vets with starting experience that they could have started over GRII. Rodney Stuckey is one of those players and CJ Miles. So I would still say he earned it.
|19 weeks 2 days ago||MAC||
I could see a MAC team in the playoff some year. They would have to schedule a very good non-conference schedule, and it would help if at least one or two other MAC teams were having strong years. Unfortunately Western didn't play a top 40 team. Even though they beat 2 Big Teams, those teams were 6-6 Northwestern and 3-9 Illinois. Next year Western is at USC and at MSU. Winning those games would go a long way for their playoff hopes.
|19 weeks 5 days ago||Forgot 2011 Maverick's||
You forgot the 2011 Mavricks.
|19 weeks 5 days ago||Totally agree with EastCoast||
It doesn't matter if we are the better team (we are), but Penn St earned it. Even though we crushed them, they did 2 things we couldn't do, Beat Iowa and Beat Ohio. We left multiple plays on the field (especially in the Iowa game). Had they came through on even a couple of those plays, then maybe we are B1G champ.
