I feel your pain, and although I also agree this is a losing battle, I vote for "place holder." Seems to be the most accurate.
|1 day 15 hours ago||Why are we saying "good for||
Why are we saying "good for Pipkins for speaking up"? Sounds like a bush league move, to me. Lots of speculation as well. If you're not happy, leave. Talking shit on the way out just makes you look like an asshole. If there is real dirt here, there's a better way to handle it.
Unless I find out there's more to the story, I wish him no more good luck than I did to Boren.

I have a beard, and I do dollar shave club for my neck. I like to start every weekday with a cleanly shaved neck.
|1 week 2 hours ago||That could play a roll, but||
That could play a roll, but this is most likely a "hey this kid we hadn't heard of committed somewhere, let's evaluate him" more than anything else. Even before he committed, there were reports that he performed well at our camp and got lots of attention from our coaches, so it's not like this is purely a "this kid must be good because Michigan likes him" thing. And it's not like they gave him a crazy high ranking either.

You think that is related to this?
|1 week 1 day ago||Considering 3 of the 4 are||
Considering 3 of the 4 are likely starting as juiors...no? That doesn't sound like a bust to me. The two stars of that class, Magnuson and Kalis, will likely both be 3 year starters.
|1 week 1 day ago||That has been the case as||
That has been the case as long as I've been following football.
|1 week 1 day ago||But the OL was pretty young,||
But the OL was pretty young, even last year. We had a true frosh, three sophomores and a junior starting. That's pretty young.

And the taco truck down the road - El Cart.
|1 week 1 day ago||I thought Kareem was more of||
I thought Kareem was more of a jumbo DE/DT type than a DE/LB. He's listed at 6'4" 260. Looks more like a 3-4 DE to me.
|1 week 1 day ago||I agree, I didn't get that||
I agree, I didn't get that vibe at all either. Rudock has lost his starting job before, so he gets it. It seemed to me like he was thinking "of course he feels that way, we all do."
|1 week 3 days ago||Hats ridiculous. He's not||
Hats ridiculous. He's not being a helicopter parent. Unless he's going to force his daughter to take one of these classes, it just sounds like he's trying to get input from people who have been there. There were things I learned about classes and other stuff at Michigan in my second or third year and it would have been nice to know earlier on.
|1 week 3 days ago||Spanish required 4 when I was||
Spanish required 4 when I was there. I believe they all did, but this was 10 years ago.
I'd recommend Sociology 100. Very cool entry level class that makes you think but isn't hard.

She's decided to open up her recruitment.
|1 week 3 days ago||Wait, those are the cute||
Wait, those are the cute ones? I've never been the pickiest guy in the world, but that doesn't do much for me. Especially because the one front is screaming "I'm white trash" at me at the top of her lungs, only partly because of her apparel.

I mean, he's got a point.
|1 week 3 days ago||Only because Vicious Vic||
Only because Vicious Vic wasn't there. Otherwise they would have tied for places 1 through 5.

Also has elite 4-square skills.
|1 week 3 days ago||You mean like Jay Riemersma||
You mean like Jay Riemersma from Michigan. But I agree.
|1 week 3 days ago||I hope he stays on offense if||
I hope he stays on offense if he isn't the QB. I could see him as a speed TE kind of like (sorry, in advance) Aaron Hernandez. Short for a TE, but strong as hell and quick.
|1 week 3 days ago||Very high level of||
Very high level of competition. I'm not saying it's the best in the country, but it's on par or above probably 90% of it. Big, big time. That is not an issue.

Yeah, that kid's a football player.

Considering our team hasn't been #24 in the country in like
|1 week 4 days ago||There's no hypocrisy. No one||
There's no hypocrisy. No one is bemoaning another school for doing what we're doing.
My point is that some of this attrition may be known to the coaches. Just because we don't know who's leaving doesn't mean they don't. And it's prudent to plan for a certain amount.
|1 week 4 days ago||When we start winning a ton||
When we start winning a ton more than they do. It's not brainwashing. These kids watch football and want to win. They know who wins. OSU has been winning, and we haven't. That's why they've taken too kids from
|1 week 4 days ago||We do not need to get any||
We do not need to get any number from Ohio. There is a lot of talent there so it behooves us to keep working there, but there is no reason we need our recruits to come from one state over another. That's ridiculous.
|1 week 4 days ago||Doubtful. Especially because||
Doubtful. Especially because most of the food MSU players have been from OOS. They haven't had that many in-staters play a big role that they wouldn't have gotten anyway.
|1 week 4 days ago||Yes, I think athleticism is||
Yes, I think athleticism is the main reason. Peppers is a freak. It's also possible that Gil is already a little bigger than Peppers and could be by a good chunk a year or two from now.
|1 week 4 days ago||How in tune are you,||
How in tune are you, Laveranues, of our scholarship situation? Specifically, what it will be like in February? I've never seen anyone here accusing another school of over signing 8 months before signing day. It's not over signing if no one has, you know, signed.
|1 week 4 days ago||I wouldn't consider that 100m||
I wouldn't consider that 100m time "meh." That's still very fast, it's just not crazy elite Denard speed. For a 6'2" receiver that's fast.
