Agreed. I had my hopes up when I saw reference to another transfer. Still holding out hope there's a grad transfer that can help us at the 4 spot this upcoming year but that's likely a pipe dream and/or the ship has sailed.

He grew up a fan of MSU but realized Michigan is a better fit for his game and it's also a better school. You have to assume he'll go green but feels like a classic heart vs head battle.

Well put. It's just so ironic they want to play the victim card considering how many real victims were created by what happened.

What's the difference between a Kia and a BMW? They both have four tires and get you from point A to point B...

I wouldn't put stock into it. Meyer basically said he just wanted it off Indiana. It's going to be a drawn out recruitment regardless.

I had the same question about the source, but it looks like that's his AAU team.

Others includes Ohio State, who just offered. And of note, his childhood favorite just won the national title and he chose Michigan. Very interesting!

For sure, and just because we won last year of course does not mean we'll win this year. Just saying that last year's Texas game is a more relevant data point than our non-Texas games last year. That's all...

But the implication is that we should be particularly concerned with *this* game. About which I disagree for reasons more relevant than all of our other noncon games.

Caris is represented by Jay Z's agency, right? And Jay Z has an ownership stake in the Nets? They have better information than anyone.

A point or a reason? Because there's a difference and these commitments certainly don't prove a point.

Except in this case, it was a poster (not a mod) on Rivals that brought up the WR by name, within a thread that was not about this rumor. On Scout, it was a main topic of a post made by a mod, and the name was not given.

(...except his team lost)
Don't get me wrong, I think it's funny. Just a slightly imperfect burn.
Of course, the guy Iverson stepped over isn't doing too great right now either.

May be right...hard to say. We had a B1G champ and Elite Eight team that lost to Charlotte in the non-con. I think Beilein's teams take some time to round into form.

Gee, if only there were two major extenuating circumstances that changed our outlook on last season. Hmmm...........

A 5 seed is "great"?
People make "excuses" for positive things?
|8 weeks 7 hours ago||Weren't tournament quality is||
Weren't tournament quality is fairly dumb thing to say considering they won a play-in game and led in the second half of the next game against a team that made the Sweet 16. They literally already proved that statement wrong.
As far as being maxed out, Irvin was clearly not 100% from his back surgery all season, Walton is a year behind in development also due to injury, and Robinson redshirted a year and only has one year at the D-1 level. So none of those guys fits the mold of being maxed out as a result of being rising seniors.
On top of that, you need to take into account that some other teams that were ahead of Michigan last year will lose enough to graduation/NBA that Michigan *can* move up even if they strictly treaded water.
You can be pessimistic...that is certainly your right...but obviously others see it differently. You probably shouldn't speak for them.

|9 weeks 10 hours ago||You've done the hard part already by getting multiple offers.||
Having multiple offers is all the leverage you need to counter. What you didn't mention is which company/team you'd rather work with and how the offers compare. Here's where it gets super easy: if the company you'd rather work for has the lower offer. A counter along the lines of "I'd rather work here but the other offer is higher and I have an obligation to my family. If you could even just match this, I'm yours". If they have any ability at all to meet it, done deal, and you don't look like you're grubbing for money, you just look like you're protecting your family (and you are).
If the company you'd rather work for has the higher offer, then it's slightly less black and white, but you should 100% still go back with "I'd rather work here, but I'm fortunate enough to have a couple of offers to choose from, and I need to do what's right for my family. Is there any room here to negotiate?"
Stay humble, stay polite, but for God sakes, make the ask.

Dude, you of all people should know that shiny metal reflects other colors, and that Voltron comes up against enemies of various colors. It's the reflection. Duh.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||Re: Leonard Taylor||
It's a good thing that Michigan should have a very strong showing in the next NFL Draft to even up the score a bit in his mind about which program offers better pro opportunities. Not that Michigan will do as well (5 first rounders set or tied a record) but also, Harbaugh and staff obviously know the pro game.

That said, Larry doesn't seem to care much for NCAA rules. Seemingly gets busted at every stop.

Speaking of "swing and miss", do you watch baseball with this same mindset? Because even elite recruiters miss on far more kids than they land.
