Winning football games builds pipelines.
Having quality coaches on your staff with connections, like Wilcher and Partridge also build pipelines.
Solid move I think.

If you were born in 1952 then at least you witnessed 3 Lions Championships (1952, 1953, and 1957). I've witnessed 1 Lions playoff win my entire life.

I wish him well and hope he starts at ISU. I just wished we had more depth.

I was wondering if they used Super Bowl era playoff wins only - but the Packers have 26 playoff wins in the Super Bowl era.

Since a "raider" is technically a pirate, shouldn't they relocate to the coast of Somalia then? The NFL wants to increase its international presence.

Mason Cole was rated the same as Tarik Black is and Kalis the same as McCaffrey.
I guess I am a dork, because I get excited over every OL top 250 recruit - and I was thrilled to see Cole. I figure we need several 4 star+ OL recruits every year. It doesn't matter if we have a great QB, WRs, and RBs if we have a porous OL.

No one gave two thoughts about Cole?!?!
You do realize 247 Composite rankings had him as a 4 star that was #8 nationally at his position and #127 overal regardless of position. He was highly regarded.
247 Composite had Kalis as a 4 star that was #3 nationally at his position and #49 overall regardless of position. This isn't that much higher than Cole.

Yes, we have enough RB talent in AA and I like O'Maury Samuels.
We need to worry more about securing the Oline than our RBs. We could run all over weak teams, but everytime we played a decent Dline we couldn't get anything on the ground.

I am not part of the "cult" of Fleck as you say. However, you illustrate a lot of negativity surrounding Minnesota right now. Shouldn't they be happy to get a new coach coming off of a 13-1 season and some new recruits above their average?
You keep saying that thes players didn't have commitable offers from BigTen schools, but that is not true.
The QB that Fleck is bringing with him to Minnesota had offers from Louisville, Cincinnati, and Wake Forest - that isn't horrible. Other players show offers from Illinois, Louisville, Purdue, and Syracuse. No these players aren't great prospects, but I don't blame Minnesota fans for being excited to go from all bad news to some level of positive news.

3 of the 6 flips have a higher 247 rating than Minnesota's average. Remember, Minnesota had been deadlast in B1G recruitng (0 4-stars, 15 3-stars) and WMU had been 1st in the MAC (0 4-stars, 18 3-stars) before the flip. So they both were sadly recruiting roughly equivalent.

Except the 24/7 Minnesota message board, which was saying the same stuff as Huge...

I don't think he was pulling out of thin air, but rather online. The Minnesota 24/7 message board thinks Fleck was offered.

No offense to Brandon Justice, but anyone with half a brain knows that NCAA rules exempt the SEC from NCAA rules.

He has made the playoffs in 2 of 3 years - for the Lions that is great. People were happy to fire Wayne Fontes, he is our Vince Lombardi looking back retrospectively.

I love this kid even if he doesn't choose Michigan. Most kids seek extra attention...he just wants to show up and take care of business.

December 2014 was a very dark time.
We had scandals from our AD, concussions, and Hoke lying about our kicker's alledged raping of a felow student - he said the kicker missed games due to family issues.
We were 5-7. Our previous bowl game saw us get annilhated by Kansas State in a lower tier bowl. We scored 1 touchdown in garbage time in our previous 3 games vs MSU. Our offense was a total joke against even mediocre teams. Our recruitng class was in the bottom three of the BigTen.
Then we hired Harbaugh...back to back 10-3 seasons with more close losses than close wins. Back to back top 5 recruitng classes. No major institutional scandals.

It is a hybrid between "practical" and "prodigal." When Harbaugh returned home it was a very practical hire in part because he was our prodigal son, making him pratigal. :-/

Under Hoke we went 11-2, 8-5, 7-6, to 5-7. We scored exactly 3 touchdowns in 4 years against MSU under Hoke...one of those was in garbage time. We had scandals of concussions and more...it was a very dark time, our recruiting class for 2015 nearly completely evaporated. We didn't know who our next coach would be.
If anyone came in and said during that bleak December of 2014 that we would go 10-3 back to back years and have top 5 recruiting classes in 2016 and 2017 we would have jumped for joy and said it was an A+ hire.

Computer Polls also have Auburn ranked ahead of WMU and by bigger margin's than the CFB Playoff committe, which only has them 1 spot ahead.
Is WMU's 0-0 record against top 40 teams that much better than Auburn's 2-3 record against top 40 teams?
If Auburn and WMU played on a neutral field and you had to bet your entire 401K, who would you pick?
|3 weeks 3 days ago||WMU's best win is over #41 6||
WMU's best win is over #41 6 loss Northwestern and they needed Northwestern's QB to lose control of the ball at the 1 inch line before he went into the end zone to win.
WMU simply had a weak schedule. Had they went 13-0 last year with wins over both MSU and OSU they would have likely made the playoff last year.

The moment they started cheering you could see the hats that he was bringing up down by the helmets were maize and blue....none of the other schools have those colors (Florida has a candy ass blue, which doesn't count).
