If I am not watching football it is highly likely that I am either lifting weights, playing poker or reading a book.
|19 weeks 22 hours ago||Myles Garrett. Garrett lined||
Myles Garrett. Garrett lined up next to Gary, Wormley and Glasgow would just be unfair. With Mone, Hurst and Charlton all rotating in off the bench. In these type of scenarios I always prefer to strengthen a strength as opposed to trying to patch up a weaker position.
|21 weeks 4 days ago||Clay Williams is legitimately||
Clay Williams is legitimately connected to a lot of recruits, and probably knows more than most supposed insiders.
|21 weeks 4 days ago||FWIW I would expect Herbert||
FWIW I would expect Herbert to drop quite a bit on Rivals next update, though still in the top 200 or so. Mike Farrell alluded to the fact that he was pretty bad at the recent 5 star challenge (the video out there on him was not impressive). I also expect 247 to move him up a couple hundred spots so that will likely even out. He's obviously a bit raw now but he has the kind of tools that could make him an All-American under this coaching staff.
|24 weeks 3 days ago||The rumors on Rivals didn't||
The rumors on Rivals didn't speculate a freshman receiver, they named Ahmir Mitchell specifically. To be clear this is message board rumor, nothing that has been posted or confirmed by mods on that site.
|25 weeks 4 days ago||So then I assume you think||
So then I assume you think one camp performance was not enough to justify bumping St. Juste from unranked 3* into the Rivals250?
Can't have it both ways

So would a lot of players who are not coming to Michigan
|33 weeks 11 hours ago||This is a 1 year grad||
This is a 1 year grad transfer for depth. Who would we be able to pick up at this point right now who would fit your criteria? What if MAAR or Walton or Simpson are injured again next year? Would you rather play this guy or Dakich again?
|46 weeks 4 days ago||I'm pretty sure I read that||
I'm pretty sure I read that Bush Sr. if hired would not be hired into the Partridge role, but a different spot. The Partridge role was to go to someone else.
|1 year 6 days ago||Uh, no. Way too early to make||
Uh, no. Way too early to make a claim like that. We lost two games to tournament teams with a lot of experience. We have Spike and Irvin coming off injuries. Integrating Wagner, Wilson and Robinson into the rotation. There are a lot of pieces in play who haven't played a lot of basketball together. They are going to get a lot better as the season goes on. Wagner has been a relevation, his upside is as good as any big we have had here save McGary. Robinson is lights out from 3 and has displayed a solid all around game as well.
I'm not sure we will be good enough to challenge MSU or Maryland for the Big Ten title, but we will be an upper tier team in the Big Ten and get a solid seed in the NCAA's.
|1 year 1 week ago||David Reese will not be a||
David Reese will not be a part of this class, for those that haven't got the memo yet.
We have one true LB commit in Dytarious Johnson, and three athletes who could end up playing LB IMO (Viramontes, Gil and Enis).
We are in good position with Devin Bush Jr., Caleb Kelly, Dontavious Jackson, and Jonathon Jones. I'd guess we get 2, maybe 3 of them.
What these recruits tell you is that we are going more for athleticism than size. Given the defensive scheme we run and the type of defensive line talent we will have, these type of players can be very effective if they are kept clean by the DL.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||As far as DL, we also will||
As far as DL, we also will get Mone back and likely add the #1 player in the country in Rashan Gary, who will factor in next year somewhere. Also FWIW insider types have pointed out Rueben Jones as the most impressive redshirt freshman so far.

Everyone stay buckled up as there will be more fireworks tomorrow. Make sure you keep those fireworks away from the Bushes though.
|1 year 39 weeks ago||1.8 PPG, 1.4 RPG. That's||
1.8 PPG, 1.4 RPG. That's what Frank Kamisky averaged his first year on the court. Now he is a national player of the year candidate. Not saying that I expect Donnal to reach that level, just pointing out the absolute absurdity of labeling him a bust this early into his career. I guess that shouldn't be too surprising though, considering the bust label was applied to Chatman by many just halfway through his freshman year. Probably the same people who referred to Dawkins and MAAR as wasted scholarships last offseason. Many here would be best served by exercising just a bit of patience.
|1 year 44 weeks ago||I'm a senior at Michigan||
I'm a senior at Michigan right now. First generation college student, lower class background, also started undergrad at 25. I've never personally felt like I was excluded or not welcomed or anything like that. Though I do remember quite distinctly in a freshman year composition class taking out our laptops to do some work in class. I was pretty much the only one in class without a Macbook, and my 5 year old Toshiba laptop sounded like a jet taking off when you turned it on.
|2 years 1 day ago||Rivals is very optimistic,||
Rivals is very optimistic, but I wouldn't take that to mean much. They lean strongly to the side of sunshine blowing. They have mastered the art of writing a lot of stuff without actually saying anything. I mean there must have been 20+ coaching updates in the last few weeks with literally nothing of substance said. Balas for example is the same guy who was telling everyone that TJ Leaf was still a serious option when it was well known by everyone that a commitment to another school was imminent.
The main benefit of being a member at TheWolverine is access to some of the posters who have legit inside info. They all seem to be in agreement that Harbaugh is legitimately in play, so I take more from that than anything said by the mods.
|2 years 5 days ago||Personally I couldn't care||
Personally I couldn't care less about a redshirt with Wilson. If he develops like we all expect him to, there is no way he is staying here 5 years. If he doesn't, then we will have someone as good or better to fill that spot anyways. Redshirts make sense with a guy like Donnal who lacks an NBA future, not guys with Wilson's upside.
|2 years 1 week ago||You guys have to be kidding||
You guys have to be kidding me with the Caris hate. There is an adjustment period to being the #1 focus of every teams defense. His shot is off at the moment and he is still putting up something like 17/5/5 on the year.
|2 years 31 weeks ago||He's trying to save face,||
He's trying to save face, which I don't blame him for. The fact is the coaches never called him back and he took the hint that they'd moved on.
|2 years 31 weeks ago||FWIW, Rivals guys seem to||
FWIW, Rivals guys seem to think that Dawkins is actually closer to 6'6"

So basically almost every GM in the league at the time? If only the Pistons had you as GM!
|2 years 37 weeks ago||Posts like this are what||
Posts like this are what makes the blog great. When I went to the Sugar Bowl a couple years ago some guy posted a guide to New Orleans and everything was spot on. Made for a great trip.
|2 years 38 weeks ago||I would love that bracket for||
I would love that bracket for us. Of all the #1 seeds, Florida is who I would most like to be paired up with. Same goes for Virginia and the #3 seeds. Even the lower seeded teams in the region are more favorable matchups IMO.
|2 years 45 weeks ago||Says who? If he chooses to||
Says who? If he chooses to pursue basketball professionally there will be leagues out there where he can play. Maybe not the major leagues in Europe but he can make 6 figures playing basketball if that's what he chooses. He could quite possibly make more with his masters in engineering, so it really depends on what he prefers doing.
Graham Brown, Josh Asselin, Chris Young, Jevohn Shephard, Brent Petway, Zak Novak and Stu Douglass are still collecting paychecks playing basketball. I don't see why Morgan can't.
|2 years 45 weeks ago||He's playing great right now.||
He's playing great right now. He will make a nice living playing basketball somewhere next year I think.
|2 years 46 weeks ago||Play them both roughly equal||
Play them both roughly equal minutes in the first half. Whoever is playing better that day gets the bulk of the minutes in the 2nd half. Seems to be working out pretty well so far
|2 years 51 weeks ago||I met Lloyd Brady in New||
I met Lloyd Brady in New Orleans for the Sugar Bowl. Saw him at some random dive bar and got my picture taken with him (he was wearing a Lloyd Brady shirt). Like 2 days later I was up on a balcony somewhere and see him walk down Bourbon street. No less than 5 Michigan fans stopped him to pose for pictures.
I was there with my friend who was a student at Arkansas at the time and it was really hard to explain why this random student was so popular

Yea, he's been doing that all game
|3 years 1 week ago||Spike is the better player||
Spike is the better player right now, but Walton's ceiling is much higher. If we want to go far in March then Walton needs to play alot so he improves as much as possible by then.
|3 years 4 weeks ago||Are you guys serious? They||
Are you guys serious? They are coasting to a 20+ win in an exhibition game. Exhibitions are about two things: Trying out different playing combinations and not getting anyone hurt.
You really think this game is indicative of anything that will happen during the season?
