Sure it does. Any college athlete that is giving serious consideration to Harvard places some sort of premium on academics. The longer a diehard fan of any school goes without pledging the better. Look at how many "diehard" Michigan fans are playing football for someone else.

This has been in the works for awhile. I was told his mom landed a job at the University. She at least has been applying.

Scout is having a flash sale for 30ish markets. I am not sure why the Michigan site would need such a thing as they have the 2nd most subscriptions on their network. North Carolina has the most shockingly enough. Perhaps Fox/Scout are offering that deal to their most popular sites hoping to catch more of the fringe fans after the sale is done.

They have been vetting some grad transfer options on the holes they have on D since they have gotten in the full swing of things. They have 1 strong possibility, perhaps 2.

Have YOU seen him play? I have. I actually played D1 basketball so I do have an eye for what it takes to play at that level. He is not out of place at all. He is an elite spot up shooter. Shoots well off 2 or 2 dribbles. Pretty good passer. He is skilled.

The doubters on Duncan will be creating the same threads now that they are about MAAR and Dawkins when 90% of this board was like wtf Beilein when he took them.
I watched him play an open gym a few times with the guys. He is one of the better players on the roster offensively speaking. He is a terrible defender quite frankly, but the kid is dang near automatic when you give him a clean look. Deibler is the perfect comp. Weak defender, iffy handle, EXCELLENT spot up shooter, and pretty dang good pulling up off 1 or 2 dribbles.
Bilas and Shulman were raving about the kid when they were in town.

I am looking for the Maize and Blue shoes that Beilein had on during Gameday. I have been looking for them in a size 12 since I saw them on Wheatley in a photo at Cass Tech.

It is so dumb and shortsighted to think that just because he played LB that is all that he will ever be able to competently coach. I could list dozens of former players that coach a different position than they played. Hell, Roy was a successful RB coach before Michigan hired him on.

Who knows with a new AD? He may have a different take on the no MSU night game stuff.

Sam posted on GBW that he was in town the same day he posted that Durkin and Drevno showed up. When was that? Like Saturday night? Safe bet he is on staff.

I think it is Narduzzi too. He had to convince Dantonio to run the system they run. Will it be as good without Pat pushing the buttons?

Sam is good friends with Wheatley and posts updates on Ty often on GBW. He said there is interest in regards to Ty and being on staff and wouldn't bet against it.

Lance Anderson will be a DC on this staff. Whether it is Co-Dc with Durkin, I don't know, but Lance is on the staff.

Actually Rockie's source is Andy Moeller. He is a member at GBW under a different name. He was the one who released the Andy Moeller text.

The list in that article is a 4+1.
The 4 are Harbaugh, Miles, Mora, and Payton. The +1 is Addazio with the knowledge that he is behind Miles for sure, and that the job will not get by Miles.
If that is a TRUE final 4, and the opening is filled with one of them, I wouldn't complain at all.

It is quite funny to read all of these posts bashing Sam over the Brandon stuff when it is obvious only bits and pieces of his reporting only make it here. He always said that the chances of Home and or Brandon surviving are quite slim, but they did have some power brokers backing them. He said when Ross made his comments in the WSJ that would probably be the death nail. And as soon as the clock struck zero on the Maryland game that would probably do it for Hoke. It isn't fair to Sam when AA torch & pitchfork only brings part of his reporting over.

The Sam Webb is being a shill for the AD posts are quite hilarious when obviously 90% of the people responding do not have the subscription to read the whole article.
He said the AD is likely to be fired in that very post. The whole point to the article was the timeline was pushing it to replace the AD and the coach before next season. I do agree that it will be tougher the longer they wait on the AD. He made some valid points if you actually read the entire thing. It was probably messy of him to include Harbaugh, but he seemingly did that because that is obviously who the fanbase wants, but was not the point of the article. His point was because of TIMELINE in regards to replacing both the AD and the coach, the most likely way to land Harbaugh was Brandon to keep his job and take a swing at it. He was not shilling for the AD to keep his job, as he said in the same article that Brandon, was ice skating uphill.
|19 weeks 1 hour ago||Umich1606||
He used Harbaugh as a reference because he knows that is what the fanbase wants. He surmised that it isn't automatic that they just pluck from the list of AD candidates rumored out there. They could easily go with a search firm to vet out some candidates. Even if they did go with Long, Bates, etc. a transition in a position such as that takes time. He put that post together after talking to a lot of people and concluded that there may not be enough time to do both before next season. The best chance of that to happen is Brandom just resigning soon because the President is going to go through a process and take his time on this. He has been consistent on that even with the rumors of the AD's immediate demise.

Watson played unless it was a PA announcing error. His name was called making a tackle or something at least once.

They did have 4 LBs on the video introduction of the starters. Morgan was included. I thought it was strange too. They must have known Brian would have to eat a lemon.
