Isn't this a major motivation behind kids getting involved with extracurriculars? You know, to get exceptional opportunities (especially paid ones!) that grades alone might not get you.
Cue the Frank Costanza.

This one is a little interesting as the prevailing thought was Zordich was in as the safeties coach yet the officially official piece says Jackson is the secondary coach. Suppose it could be intentionally vague and he'll be tabbed specifically for CBs otherwise this would be a departure from previous SOURCES and REPORTS around these parts and elsewhere.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Agreed on MSU||
They beat Baylor a meh Nebraska team and......?
Obviously Dantonio is going to keep MSU at a level where "Sparty No" is a thing of the past but they lost their marquee games at home and away this year. They lose their guru DC and despite the success, they still can't recruit at a top level. When Harbaugh rights the ship and starts taking 3 out of 5 from MSU they won't have that gimme against UM to prop the record up to double digits anymore. They'll be good but having 6 years of flacidity from an archrival is an easy way to elevate good/very good to great.
I really don't mean to denigrate MSU. They play the games on their schedule and win most of them but the mid-October free lunch program ended when Harbaugh was hired.

Casting my vote for Northville. 20-25 minutes to Ann Arbor, Detroit and Royal Oak. Excellent schools and an honest-to-goodness downtown. A little heavy on McMansions but far better than many other areas in that respect.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||QB and pass rusher||
Decent to good QB play, pass rush threat, add a dash of Harbaugh, season with Peppers and you have yourself a B1G contender next year. We need to get used to expecting nice things again.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Corrolary||
This dovetails nicely with something from, yes, Bleacher Report:
Here's to squinting really hard at the QB and DE spots for average to average+ play next year!

At this stage of the game, I believe the 'right' thing to do would be to let Michigan know that he's not interested in returning to college. The guy's NFL winning percentage is amongst the tops in the league since he started and his prior track record would earn him massive offers without Michigan's interest. So if this plays out for two more weeks and the answer is still no, he will be villified. No question Jim.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Are we sure?||
Are we sure that any of this is new? The 48 million figure certainly isn't. The clarity on the length if the term would be new but it seems possible that the only new piece to this is the NFLers taking up the story. Did I miss something?
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Ha!||
Thanks. Tough crowd.

The pants. They're defective. An optical illusion really.

That MGoBlog, he's a pretty okay guy. For a blogger. Who blogs and smells like cabbage (unconfirmed).
Honestly with the inch-deep, drive-by MSM sports journalism out there when does this trope flip on its head? I get that there are 10 chatsports for every MGoBlog but if you want actual nuanced discussion (along with ALL the snarkz!) where else do you go? Sure as hell not the Freep, ESPN or NBC Sports. Yahoo! Sports for a time seemed pretty alright I suppose.

I keep weighing the noise in either direction against the fact that Michigan seems perfectly content to sit and wait. There's been no significant movement by Hackett in any other directions. I suppose it's possible that Harbaugh won't say boo to UM until the season is done but I have to believe that Hackett would know by now to move on.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Wojo||
Even Wojo is hinting around a bit.
For me, it all comes back to Hackett. He came from out of the blue and is suddenly a half-step from being permanent AD.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||No.||
His wines, as with the majority of Napa cabernets and blends, will have zero or next to zero residual sugar. However, many wines made in a 'new world' style will. taste somewhat sweet. I had his stuff a few vintages ago. It was pretty good, like 20-30 bucks good. Not $100+ good but little is.

If Denard Robinson has no power, why not say, "It's the block M that has power, not Joe Kerridge."
I think what he meant to say was, "It's the block M that has power, not QB#16."

Woodson got the press conference answer then heard the much propogated bits from Rappaport and Schefter like everyone else.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Tyree Kinnel||
I don't think I saw this in yesterday's Searchbit but Allen Trieu wrote a piece for Detnews on Tyree Kinnel's recruitment. Tyree spoke with Michigan yesterday and said this, "Today I was told that after Christmas they will have their new coach, no later than that."
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Bah||
Hoke's teams were competitive with OSU every single year. F moral victories but to think we won't compete is chicken shit.

|7 weeks 3 days ago||Search firm||
Wasn't the rumbling by Henson and others that the search firm would reach out to 16 candidates as Hackett supposedly told the players?
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Agreed||
If either Harbaugh or Michigan had moved on there'd be smoke of Hackett focusing his attention elsewhere. There's no evidence of that at all. Doesn't mean "it's happening" but it sure seems like it could.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Echo chamber||
Sure seems like he's just regurgitating old info on the Michigan piece in this article. Writing about Ross and the Dolphins without mentioning Ross' statement about Michigan and Harbaugh really undermines his entire article.
Four fakes out of five.

A google search of Jed Hughes and Jim Harbaugh led me to this:
An interesting piece on this type of recruitment and why a search firm is useful for an AD.
