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.

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.

Sam verified random internet poster's post that a LB injury happened. All he said on the message board was that he didn't start Saturday.

Why should he have to play if he sucks? You have some awful reasoning sometimes. OMG his profile sayz 5 starzzzz. He must be good so he should play no matter what. Who cares if he shows up to camp as a fatty or couldn't break away from an attempted tackle by a toddler. Did you see the starzzzzz though?

I liked Bill King. I don't catch him now that he is 5-7 AM. I like Jim Bowden and Casey Stern on MLB Network radio.
SVP is my favorite and I like LeBatard a lot. Cowherd and Mike and Mike are ok. Don't love or hate either.
There isn't a local Detroit or Grand Rapids show I can stand listening to, which is quite sad.

I was hoping that you would be intelligent enough to pick up this on your own, but you obviously aren't so here it goes. They are just reporting today for team meetings. Fall practices have not even started. These are clips from the spring, which would be one of the first few practices with a new coach and playbook. How about you wait to troll until you see some updated practice footage.

It matters a lot in basketball recruiting with a lot of these AAU teams and leagues sponsored by shoe companies. You don't think the shoe companies don't put heat on the AAU they sponsor if kids are signing at schools with rival shoe companies?

Shouldn't you know seeming how you know everything there is to know about training and exercise science that when some people gain a lot of weight they lose a lot of speed and athleticism while others gain weight and do not lose anything as far as speed and athleticism?

The irony of calling a franchise dumb when you refer to Irvin as Irving not once, but twice.

The Elite 11 is not final. They are picking it after The Opening this year.That was the initial rankings. He had a chance to play his way on the list.

What makes you credible? Lets see. Who would I consult? One has been hired by D1 Universities and pro teams while making millions in the profession. The other is you.

I think it is crap that they can just pull prices out of their ass. The PSU game for the ticket packs were 95. Now you can pay 200 to go?
I hate paying the freight for this schedule at 65 per game as a season ticket holder, I can't imagine paying those prices.

He did think it was in the best interest of the team to use FOUR relief pitchers in one inning though, which is completely ignorant.
|17 weeks 5 days ago||Good riddance. This core||
Good riddance. This core group of Cy Young's and MVP's will likely never win a WS because that idiot went 1-8 in WS games as the favorite and his epic fail of a performance of game 2 in tha ALCS last year.
Too small of a sample size but it seems like they hired Leyland Jr. this time around with his belief in bunting and piss poor bullpen management. Although this roster can't hold a candle to anything Leyland had, so he gets some slack there.

I know a lot of people like to give Sam a hard tim on the UM is cooling stuff, perhaps sometimes deservedly so, but in this case he was posting on GBW about Cornell not really being a target for at least a couple months. Long before he started loving MSU and whomever else. It isn't a new opinion for that subscription base. Those were some entertaining threads to say the least.

A linebacker with a Penn St. and Michigan St. offer in addition to Greg Mattison and you thought he sucked?
|19 weeks 3 days ago||Sam never mentioned that he||
Sam never mentioned that he went to MSU and had an all night bender and wanted to bring the party to Ann Arbor either. All he said that Eron wanted some of his friends come along and Beilein respectfully declined.
|19 weeks 3 days ago||And what would be so||
And what would be so unbelievable about Beilein requesting that he take a visit seriously enough that he doesn't need his friends around anyway?
|19 weeks 3 days ago||Yeah, he is also right more||
Yeah, he is also right more often than not. Name another UM based reporter as connected as he is.
|19 weeks 5 days ago||They have a lot of starting||
They have a lot of starting pitching in Lakeland and West Michigan that are making all star teams in their respective leagues. Devon Travis, Moya, Adames, and Betancourt are good prospects as far as position players. McCann has a lot of value as a promising young catcher.
They don't have a deep system because they use them in trades, but if their farm system was that awful DD would never swing the trades he does.

But Bryn Forbes is about to transfer in, and that sure does.
|19 weeks 5 days ago||I get your point, but Ahrens||
I get your point, but Ahrens has met the requirements for an offer. If Beilein wanted him so bad, why didn't he offer him?
|20 weeks 2 hours ago||Yeah, understood where Weber||
Yeah, understood where Weber stands currently. I stated why that is. Things change. He genuinely loves UM and wanted to be there. He was hurt when they stopped recruiting him when they got Harris. His list is that reaction. If his recruitment goes until after his season like he says it will, M will have every opportunity in the world to flip the script. He will be back around campus.
|20 weeks 3 hours ago||I think the odds are greater||
I think the odds are greater with Weber. He genuinely loves Michigan and was hurt that they stopped recruiting him when they landed Harris. If he goes past his season like he says he will, I think the emotions will wear off, he will have built a better relationship with Nuss, and hopefully the running game doesn't prove to be a shit show.
However, I don't think anyone could advocate not taking Ty because it may or may not have cost them Weber or Harris when Ty has 3 years left.

Sam said on GBW that that rule is a guideline and not a hardline rule, and they would state their case that driving 4 hours would not be an issue for whatever the mother's condition is. It was due to the fact that mom couldn't get on a plane that Ty wanted to move closer to home. So if Ty did choose Michigan, they would make a case for the hardship waiver as well.
