Honest question: why are the coaches going after a RB in this class even though we had two really good ones in the 2013 class and another stud for the 2015 class?
Aren't there other positions where there's more need?

I hate to say it, but dIdn't we stuggle to 5-0 a couple times under RR before we got handled by mediocre-to-good competition in B1G conference play? I think we have better coaches this go around, so I don't think we'll fall off quite as hard (if at all), but the point remains: 5-0 does not speak for itself.

I played there as well this past summer - beginning of June. I was really looking forward it, but the course conditions simply did not impress me. I have to assume the funds to care for Radrick come from the same pot as those that care for the Michigan course.

I don't think the elevated green on #3 is silly, especially when compared to #6.

One of the reasons I've always loved the Michigan course, as a student, is how well-cared-for the track is - country club level (if not moreso), with plush greens and fairways. However, this past year, it seems as if the course has been looking and feeling a bit shotty (cutdown trees, and overgrown, hardened fairways, specifically). Apparently, some cost-cutting measures have led to the downsizing of the superintendent's staff. All the while, student rates (rather than Alumni or others') have gone up substantially, from $25 to $35.
Any insight into these changes would be interesting to hear about...

While #18 is the favorite of many, I prefer #3.

That's true. And I actually think your summary of Brian's argument on this point is much more accurate than mine -- that pro-style success depends on the OCs willingness to let 'em hang, so as to speak.
|16 weeks 1 day ago||It doesn't seem to me that||
It doesn't seem to me that Brian is saying that pro-style offenses can't win championships. Obviously Bama's success would refute that point. I think he's just saying that, if a team uses a pro-style offense, the coaches better make sure they maximize their kids' talent -- something previous OCs haven't necessarily done at UM. Brian seems to think the story will be different with Borges at the helm, and I'd like to agree.

Aesthetically, I love the new stadium. It is truly a collosseum. And I love what Hoke and Co. is doing for the program. I don't think a national championship is at all beyond our reach. But we're officially in a new era of college football where kids aren't just coming to Michigan for the same reasons we did. Nowadays, the kids aren't going to come to Michigan simply because they want to be part of its tradition. Instead, they want more tangible things, like facilities - weight rooms, and stylish new arenas and stadiums.
I wonder - did these things always matter as much to recruits in years past?

I could be wrong, but I always felt as if the Army All American game always boasted the better talent.

Driver: Ping G10. Amazing value - I've yet to find a driver that's as pretty to look at over the ball, either.
Irons: TItlest 990. These have served me well even as my game has changed a lot in the 13+ years that I've had these. You can do a lot with these clubs.
Wedges: Cleveland 900 Gunmetal (52, 56, 60). These are great. The 60 is my favorite club in the bag. It's extremely versitile. I never got into Vokey wedges - never saw the appeal.
Putter: Ping Anser 2. I've always been meaning to upgrade, but this guy performs so well anytime you put a good stroke on the ball.

First of all, with the exception of Miles, your math is pretty far off. Second of all, we're talking about recruiting. Historically, we've done just fine with the assistants we've had. We haven't had to pay "top dollar" for assistants to come in here in order to attract top talent.

I'm not sure how this stacks up to other schools, but I think this list that comes off the top of my head is nice: Les Miles, Greg Mattison, Bill Sheridan, Brady Hoke, Ron English, and even Fred Jackson.
|32 weeks 5 days ago||That might be true, but has||
That might be true, but has this really been a "problem," as you put it? The assistants that have come out of here have gone on to have great coaching careers. Schools like Michigan are usually where assistants are developed, not bought.

I agree with your point regarding his defensive play. Offensively, however, I think a guy like GR3 really only has trouble creating at the college level because of the more cramped floor dimensions as opposed to those in the NBA.

I vote last night. The implications by itself push it over the edge (let alone the shock value). And by the same test, I'd venture to say that last night was our biggest victory since the 1999/2000 Orange Bowl, and maybe even the 1997/1998 Rose Bowl.
