|12 hours 44 min ago||Just not Ohio||
I obviously have no idea how this will turn out, would love to have him at Michigan, but more than anything do NOT want to see a "compromise" where he ends up at Ohio.
|12 hours 54 min ago||Not sure if you are serious||
But Clowney plays defense, he wouldn't "protect" Henne.
|1 day 16 hours ago||Shifty||
Mike Hart was shifty. He was also pretty good behind the LOS.
|2 days 12 hours ago||"It's always good to root against Duke."||
Amen. Except for the usual Big Ten suspects, there is no one I would rather see lose a basketball game than the Dookies.
|2 days 13 hours ago||Class of '73 here||
You do the math. I figure if you win one game to avoid embarrassment in the tournament, then exit quietly in a well-played second round game, you get your work in, stay sharp for the NCAA's, don't wear players out, and move on. The regular season championship is much more meaningful.
|2 days 17 hours ago||He really impressed me this year||
I had grave doubts about where the season was headed when Mitch went down, but Morgan really stepped up and has played far better basketball than I thought he could. His ability to stabilize C was critical to the team's success. Great job by the kid.
|4 days 12 hours ago||Agreed||
Seriously, is there any doubt that winning once would be worth everyone leaving? Nothing is guaranteed next year, whoever returns.
|4 days 12 hours ago||I hope you're right||
But given his age, and the injury this year, I would be surprised to see McGary return as long as he is healthy and can work out for the NBA clubs before the draft. He has enormous upside, and surely there is a team that would take a shot at a healthy McGary in the 11-24 draft pick range.

That's the team's biggest problem!
|1 week 3 days ago||Bizarro world||
Yes, for years Michigan owned MSU in football and vice versa in basketball. The world has been turned on its head. It will take everyone some getting used to.
|1 week 3 days ago||Benefit of the doubt?||
Gee, I suppose that if Hoke and Mattison decide based on their decades of coaching defenses at all levels that this makes sense based on what they saw last year and what they have to work with then, yeah, I'll take their opinion over what the unwashed masses (i.e., we) think of the move. And if it doesn't pan out, I'll expect they will revert to the old arrangement or try something different.
|2 weeks 19 hours ago||Getting bigger inside||
I believe Mattison was quoted earlier this year as saying we needed to get bigger at LB. He may have meant "bigger inside" after the way ohio (and some others) ran at will up the middle last year. I am curious to see how this all shakes out. Gedeon looked good for a true freshman last year, and he also looked bigger than Morgan, Bolden, Ross. Wonder if he will crack the starting lineup this year? Mattison taking over coaching LBs makes this all the more interesting.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I wonder if Nussmeier||
might make getting both Harris and Weber more likely when all is said and done. He used multiple backs in Alabama, and seems more a fan of that approach than was Borges with his search for one feature back. Makes sense for a recruit in that it reduces the wear and tear and also increases the likelihod of playing. So much will depend on how we play this year; we really need to have a better season, and also look more consistent offensively.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Harris||
If he is as good as people say he is, I expect Harris to play by the mid point of the year. No one from the grouping of Chesson, Darboh, York, Jones and Dukes who has played has looked elite, although Chesson did some things well and Darboh was ahead of him before the injury. But if Harris is elite, I think he will move ahead of all of them before the year is up. If Mario could do it, Harris can do it.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||What is most interesting to me||
is that he sounded contrite after the fact, and even a couple weeks later was apologetic about it in newspaper articles. Then he does this? What a colossal jerk.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||As a St. Joe's alum||
I can assure you that Desmond and Elvis both went there, and not to Ignatius.
|3 weeks 12 hours ago||Nothing significant||
He'll be just a guy. I suspect they will give Williams every chance to play first, probably keep Funchess at TE nominally at least. If Jordan contributes much, it would be pretty startling.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Exactly why were Harris and Borges so tight?||
I always understood Borges did little recruiting, and yet his departure seemed to be the trigger that caused Harris to decommit. Were they really that tight, or was this more of a "wow, that offense was a train wreck this year, I need to think about this some more" situation? If it was really about Borges, how did that relationship develop, he just happened to go recruit the kid?
|3 weeks 2 days ago||More importantly||
Great recruiting breeds winning.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||A big high five to the basketball team||
Nothing like losing to your hated rival to create a bit of a downer experience for the potential recruit, especially when he is still leaning towards your rival.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||100% with you on Hammer||
the guy is an annoying jackass. As are most of the sports talkers, who have basically driven me away from ever listening to sports talk radio. Except for tonight.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Don Rogers died of cardiac arrest||
after ingesting too many drugs the day before he was to be married, IIRC. That isn't cursed so much as stupid.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||any data on Ohio?||
I would be really interested to see how Ohio's recruiting compares. I would guess that they had a higher percentage of in-state recruits than any of the three schools examined, and that Tressel still had a high percentage of local recruits in the 00's, but that the last couple years Urbs has gone more national. But just guessing.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Maybe Haslam isn't the third stooge after all?||
Banner and Lombardi were pretty universally reviled in Cleveland, Lombardi from past days and Banner for his snide, arrogant attitude. Apparently, Haslam noticed and decided he needed to take action. I am pleasantly surprised.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||That's right||
because in 2015 we will have a dominant, veteran OL, an experienced QB and a couple top RBs and WRS, plus a senior-laden defense and will be one of 4 schools in the NC playoff!
|3 weeks 4 days ago||WHOA!||
That is one weird story. The strange thing is, you read stories similar to it from time to time. I mean, who gets drunk and just climbs through a window and gets into bed with someone? More people than I would have guessed appears to be the answer.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||let's just hope it isn't ohio||
that would make me want to vomit.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||There's also a difference between||
There's also a difference thinking your kid should not attend a single school, and telling your kid where he has to get an education.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||None of us is competent to say what the parents should do||
We don't know what happened at MSU. We don't know what kind of kid Malik is. We don't know what outside influences in Michigan his father is concerned about. We don't know what his relationship with his parents is. We get half stories and rumors and reach conclusions about what the parents should or shouldn't do based on those. This is a mess, but nobody on this board knows whether the parents are acting responsibly or not, if they are indeed holding up his attending MSU and there isn't some other explanation for the delay.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||I agree||
This whole recruitment was too weird. I have a feeling this will not work out well for Malik. Given how adamant his parents were about him not going to MSU, and how offended his mother was about something or other there, his father's "anywhere but MSU" attitude, given his focus on the party atmosphere (apparently), it all screams "problems down the road." Not rooting against him, just reflecting on what has been reported.
