FWIW. Michigan doesn't seem inclined to get re-involved.

What about the other angle: Even good recruits need to be coached up properly from the high school level to the college level.

"InceDENTAL" contact is right!

Laurie Carr, use to be married to Bill McCartney's brother. Laurie was not Bill's wife, but rather sister-in-law.
"If" Lloyd was cheating with Laurie while she was still married, she wasn't married to an assitant coach, but rather an assitant coach's brother.

Here is why:
-Failing a Michigan pot test = 3 game suspension and the NCAA is fine with that. Some schools give out less and the NCAA says okay.
-Failing an NCAA pot test = 1 calendar year (~30 games).
-Several crimes far worse than smoking pot = a punishment without suspension or certainly less than a year.
Shouldn't the punishments be comensurate for the same crime and in perspective with other crimes?

Just listened to the whole interview - does anyone know if Izzo had any players on the bench due to foul trouble?!?!?!

I think "Little Hitler" is extreme...but it looks like the fan he got into an altercation with was a girl?!?!?!
"Tom Izzo on the OSU fan: "She was a jerk ... You want the truth or you want me to lie?"" From the same link above.

It wasn't the value of silver itself that he cared about. He wanted to break the banks hold on gold, cause some inflation, and have more money flowing through the economy - all of which he thought would help the little guy.

Isn't there a big difference between picking against a spread and picking straight up?

Yes, we really went. Several other countries have since photographed the landing sites. We left a reflective mirror on the moon that scientists use all over the world. The Soviets kept track of the mission too and would have blown the lid off on a hoax.

On the way home for work, Lawrence Marshall said on the radio that this morning McDowell told him he was leaning Blue before he went on stage and said he was Green.

Actually, you are mistaken. Michigan fairs very well. Michigan will have more upperclassmen recruits graded at 80+ by ESPN than every team on their schedule except OSU and ND.,.
Michigan will have 12 (Gardner 2010) and MSU will have 2 upperclassmen on their rosters graded 80+ by ESPN.

I know that recruiting rankings are not perfect and all - but they do generally indidcate if you have talent or not.
Hoke needs to win some games this year is bottom line. We have the 2nd most recruited talent in this conference.
# of ESPN recruits from 2011 to 2014 with a grade of 80+
Ohio State 54
I like Hoke, but he can't afford to go 3-5 in the conference again like he did in 2013 with the amount of talent that he has...
Teams we play in bold.

True, only an 11 game regular season. I realized my mistake!
+1 to you.

As to your question...
The defense will be better. We return 9 starters and 21 of 24 on the 2 deep. Throw in a lot of young players that didn't see any action due to redshirting and hopefully a true freshman named Peppers.
There wasn't a younger defense in the BigTen this year, we will be better on defense next year period.
On offense, we return 7 starters. Lose our best WR, but return Darboh from injury and Funchess. We also have some other young WRs. The RB position will not be hurt losing Toussaint. This position cannot get worse, it can only improve. QB situation will be the same or improve.
The offense completely boils down to the offensive line. Can they pass block? Can they run block? We lose our 2 best linemen, but we have a lot of highly regarded young talent. I do not have faith in Funk to get them ready.
It wouldn't surprise me if the offense regressed a bit.

You forgot the 1999 team -
The 1999 team went 11-2 with a win over the SEC champion...
Finished in the AP Poll #5
The Final AP Poll had us beating 5 teams in it: #4 (Wisconsin Rose Bowl Champion), #8 (Alabama SEC Champion), #11 Penn State (Alamo Bowl Champion), #25 Purdue (Lost ot Georgia in Outback Bowl in the final minute).
Our two losses were to: #7 MSU (beat SEC runner up in Citrus Bowl) and #24 Illinois (won their scrub bowl). Both losses by less than a TD.
The 1999 team was a legitimate national title contender.

Well...I don't think it is as easy as "turning down a national title for us just so another school can't win one in a different sport."
It really depends on what sports you value.
Hypothetical: Would you rather have the Men's Cross Country team win the 2014 National Championship OR Michigan Football go into Columbus in 2014 and thump an undefeated Buckeye team?
No offense to cross country, but would this not be a no-brainer for 99% of our fanbase preferring a football win in Columbus next year?
If you truly value Michigan Football over Basketball by a wide enough margin, it makes perfect sense to want to beat your rival in a big game with national implications.

Matt Millen is doing the Florida @ South Carolina game...he just said something to the effect of "and Legree turned into a Simon Legree with that pick."
Simon Legree is a fictional slave owner from Uncle Tom's Cabin that would beat slaves to death, rape female slaves, bribe slaves to beat other slaves with alcohol, and physically abuse slaves if they prayed.
Perhaps not the best choice of references.

Lewan's behavior is unacceptable. 2 years ago MSU fans lost a lot of integrity defending Gholston. I hope our fan base doesn't lose integrity defending Lewan's actions.

I use to work with a self-proclaimed "Biggest MSU Fan" that went to WMU that made the argument to me that Michigan was worse, because we had more fans that didn't go to our school......
Fact is, both schools have most fans not in their alumni base. Who cares? Only those looking to whine that is who.

Do the Legend Jerseys prevent new legends jerseys? Think about it, if your best players wear a legend's number (someone else's number).....it seems like it would be hard to get new numbers.

The OSU message boards are claiming that the "shady" stuff started at all his other suitors except OSU. And he wants shady stuff, so OSU has been eliminated for being pure.

Don't write off Penn State and Northwestern yet as potential quality opponents.
BCS Bowl at large teams have had shaky games before... The VaTech team we played only beat a 5-7 ECU team 17-10, and the game was tied in the 4th with ECU holding the ball. They also beat a 3-9 Duke team 14-10 and Duke had the ball in the red zone twice in the 4th quarter for a chance at a go ahead TD and walked away with 0 points.

If I remember correctly, Michigan had over 300 yards at halftime versus Oregon -- but only 1 touchdown to show for all of those yards.
