Peppers at 10, which seems low.

Do you own athletic shoes? Do you own any Michigan apparel? Those are two pretty good reasons. In fact you can kill two birds with one stone.
|21 hours 36 min ago||What do your athletic shoes||
What do your athletic shoes look like? Is it that weird for an adult to purchase athletic shoes nowadays? I, too, am an adult. I can't say for sure that if buy these shoes without trying them on or knowing how much they'll cost but I don't see a reason to be so opposed to them as you are.
You can say "I personally will not buy them." That's fair. Lots of people won't buy them. But to insinuate that any adult shouldn't have a reason to buy them is being ridiculous. I am an adult and I have a handful of types of shoes for a handful of purposes. It's possible that these shoes could serve one of those purposes. Not outlandish at all.

Their QB will likely be Jack Del Rio's kid this fall. Felipe Franks was a big QB recruit who may do big things but likely won't be ready for prime time yet this fall. He might be who faces us in 2017 though.

You mean the offense that couldn't score against good teams? And I use the term "good" pretty loosely as well.

Or Vayante Copeland. I'd take Delano Hill over Copeland.

Wow it seemed like Otis Reese was the solid one of the GA pair. That doesn't bode well for Soloman.

Wait - Rashan Gary is on the list, but Mone, Hurst and Glasgow are not? So this is just pure bullshit then, got it.

Do you know Ryan Schmuldt? That's my brother.

Didn't he go to FHN? I went there as well (but before you guys, class of '02).

As soon as I saw the thread title I thought, "the big news here is obviously Coach saying he doesn't want to go back to the NFL, yet everyone will obsess over the totally unimportant uniforms part."

Wow, that's interesting. I thought we had the inside track for him.
Your loss, Ovie.

Should I know who this is? Do we know who his son is? More info, please.
|5 days 8 hours ago||Would it be "better" for him||
Would it be "better" for him to give the money and want absolutely nothing in return? Sure. But he had lots of options with that 3mil bucks, many of which involve him getting something awesome in return, like a mega yacht or a house in Vail. Typically when people part with large sums of money, they want something in return for it. I find it shitty when people criticize donors who want something in return for a 7 figure donation.
|6 days 7 hours ago||Just because "it's their job"||
Just because "it's their job" to evaluate kids everywhere doesn't mean it's as easy or practical to do so. It's the job of an NFL scout to scout everyone as well, but that doesn't mean players at Hillsdale will get scouted as heavily as kids at Alabama. These sites are still limited by the number of scouts they employ and the ones they do will spend most of their time in areas and at high schools that produce the most and the best prospects. The lack of time spent in MA says less about the recruiting sites and more about he overall quality in MA.
Additionally, it's difficult to scout a kid playing against poor competition. I looked like a D1 player in high school the week we played Northview, even though I wasn't close. Some prospects play Northview every week, so it's difficult to say whether that guy is a legit player who just happens to play weak competition or if he's an average player who looks legit because he plays weak competition.

I'm glad our guys spent as much time with him at the opening as they did. He'd be a great pick up.

I'm not sure a group of Michigan grads is the place to brag about a $6500 pay check. Not sure that moves the needle around here. Super sweet you got a BMW though, bro.

I miss the BlogPoll. For a while, that was one of my favorite things on the blog. I even followed it on CBS for a while after it left here. I'm surprised that hasn't been reincarnated, it was a pretty big draw if I remember.

Exactly. Even for a hater, his argument makes no sense.
He says Harbaugh is bad at singing. He didn't sing anything.
He says Harbaugh should be coaching. It's against NCAA rules for him to coach his team right now (not like the SEC cares about those) and, like you said, he's coached more football this summer than any college coach likely has in a single summer.
He acknowledges that young like the stuff he's doing. Does Finebaum think Harbaugh is doing a rap video to appease 60 year old SEC fans or something? When it comes to recruiting, the young people are typically your target audience.'
Harbaugh likes to have fun, and everyone hates it. Mostly because recruits like it, and all other fans are jealous their coach isn't as fun as Harbaugh is. Harbaugh is like the charasmatic guy at the bar who all the girls are attracted to. Other guys hate him, not because he's a bad guy, just because he's taking all the girls.

His earlier stuff was much better. The Food Album was one of my favorites.

I have kids, and they're able to get outside and play with other kids without the need of electronics.

This will be a polarizing statement, but here goes:
If it takes an iPhone app to get your kids to go outside in the summertime and to hang out with other kids, you're doing the parenting thing wrong.
|1 week 1 day ago||I think much of that has to||
I think much of that has to do with people being excited about someone who will contribute this fall. It's hard to be excited about someone you most likely won't see play for 3 years. Keep in mind that back in February, all M fans were convinced O'Korn was going to lead us to back to back national championships (and he still might).

Where did you go to hs? I'm FHN class of '02.

How crazy is it that a kid who really shouldn't even be in college yet has "maturity" as a weakness? Must be the only one in the country.
Hell, find me an 18 year old male who has maturity as a strength.

I like Gallon a lot, but I'd take Manningham over him.

Neither of those were projecting as a first round pick like Peppers likely will be.
|1 week 3 days ago||I don't think Josh Ross will||
I don't think Josh Ross will get a lot of PT next fall. We only lose one ILB from this fall's team (Gedeon) and our 2016 LB crop was solid. I expect our starters will be McCray and Bush with Mbem-Bosse and Wangler rotating in. Ross will also need to battle Devin Gil and any other 2017 recruit for a small number of snaps.
