That's a good example. Considering that will have been 9 years ago come next draft, that doesn't bode well for Hack.
And Cutler had the excuse of being at a program with poor talent around him and a very tough schedule. Hack has that a little, but both to a lesser extent than Cutler did. Hackenberg has had, so far, 2 NFL draft picks to throw too, and that number could be 5 or 6 once these younger guys declare.

Super Regional host is looking pretty solid at this point.
|3 days 14 hours ago||Hackenberg had some inflated||
Hackenberg had some inflated stats his frosh year because of Allen Robinson who was incredible as a college WR. Without that this year, Hack's stats took a big decline. He had almost the exact same yardage but with 92(!) more attempts. He had 8 fewer TD, 5 more INTs and took 23(!) more sacks. These are not good trends.
Hackenberg has been a decent between-the-20s QB, but hasn't been able to punch it in. And that's only going to get worse this fall after losing his top red zone threat in Jesse James, who led the team in TDs last fall.

Hack has the talent, but he's never proven he can be consistent with it. When was the last time there was a first round QB picked with a career W/L record near .500?

And Magnus replied accordingly.
|3 days 14 hours ago||I agree on the first two||
I agree on the first two rounds. But you have to look like a real franchise QB to be drafted in the top 10, and I highly doubt Cook will look like that a year from now. He will look like a solid NFL QB, guy who could be a starter but will likely be a good back up. Kinda like what Henne looked like coming out of college.
|3 days 14 hours ago||Yeah, I agree he's a long||
Yeah, I agree he's a long shot, I just included him because he's in that category of guys who have what it takes to get to that point this year. If he puts together a full heatlhy season at the level we know he can play, he'll get drafted. He just hasn't done that yet.
If he's not healthy this year, I agree on the redshirt idea. But even then, Glasgow and Mone will still be around the year after.
|3 days 14 hours ago||Did you mean Jarrod Wilson||
Did you mean Jarrod Wilson instead of Clark? I think he has a shot to get picked up if his senior year is a step above his junior year.
Also, I'd say Pipkins and RJS have shots at being drafted as well. Neither have played a whole lot, but both have great measurables and have a shot at contributing more this year. But if Pipkins can't a) stay healthy and b) beat out Glasgow or Mone for PT, he's a long shot.
|3 days 15 hours ago||If someone like Furman gets||
If someone like Furman gets drafted after one year of seeing the field, Bolden and/or Morgan will get drafted. Both guys have NFL size and have a lot more production that Furman had. I don't see Ojemudia getting drafted without a break out senior year, but I bet Countess gets picked up in the later rounds.
Is there a reason you included Jeremy Clark? He'll be a redshirt Jr this fall, so he's be an early entry which I seriously don't see.
|3 days 15 hours ago||I hope he doesn't go early.||
I hope he doesn't go early. We need another year to bulk up our DT depth.
|3 days 15 hours ago||Potentially, sure. But would||
Potentially, sure. But would you predict it?
|3 days 15 hours ago||Cook has looked a lot better||
Cook has looked a lot better than Hackenberg. Putting Hack that high is a prime of example of over-valuing measurable and/or recruiting hype.
|3 days 15 hours ago||He didn't say he looked bad||
He didn't say he looked bad in the CoFoPoff, but he predicted he'll have a fall from grace, which I expect as well. There's a reason he was third string last year, after all.
|4 days 10 hours ago||I agree with RB, I had been||
I agree with RB, I had been pushing for him to move there. I'm sure he could have been a fine LB for us but who does he play over? He still would have been only a back up there as well since he wasn't as good as James Ross.
|4 days 16 hours ago||I've read this week that||
I've read this week that Michigan has the longest streak of a player being drafted in the NFL draft.
Is that streak in danger next year? Who do we think has a shot at being drafted in 2016?
|6 days 14 hours ago||I can attest. I lived in||
I can attest. I lived in Hermosa for a while - 430 Hermosa Ave, apt H. Best few years of my life.
Now I call Valencia, CA home.
|6 days 14 hours ago||Were there other big name QBs||
Were there other big name QBs at Peters's camp?
|6 days 17 hours ago||That's tough to say. 5 guys||
That's tough to say. 5 guys is much bigger, more expensive, more toppings, etc. Its less fresh and less fast.
In-n-out's super fresh, simple, smaller, faster and cheaper. You don't need to order a huge burger, but you can order a double, triple, etc. This is one of those areas where less is more.
|6 days 17 hours ago||Yeah, "a friend," huh?||
Yeah, "a friend," huh?
|6 days 17 hours ago||This. It's faster, cheaper||
This. It's faster, cheaper and overall better than 5 Guys. And the 5 Guys by me doesn't even have a drive thru - wtf is that?
There's a reason 5 Guys hasn't taken off in areas where in n out exists.
|1 week 1 day ago||This type of comment drives||
This type of comment drives me nuts. When John Beilein said he was good enough for Michigan, you doubted. But now that a website says he's good, you're ok with it.

There is no preseason bias with a computer ranking.
|1 week 2 days ago||I'm not so sure the NCAA will||
I'm not so sure the NCAA will bow and kiss Saban's ring. Remember - Urban has the latest ring, and he's certain to side with Harbaugh on this, and you've got PSU, Nebraska and Notre Dame on Harbaugh's side as well. That's a LOOOOT of fanbase right there. When Washington and Oregon want to do camps in CA next summer, they'll be on our side as well.
|1 week 2 days ago||There's no doubt the coaches||
There's no doubt the coaches told the league to do this. Remember - the "league" is really just the group of ADs anyway. All the ADs were in agreement not to support the camp, so instead of the "coaches" saying they don't want to, the "league," which is the same people, said that the coaches can't go.
This is like when a kid gets invited to something he doesn't want to go to, so he has his mom call the other mom saying he can't go.
If the SEC coaches had any desire to do this, the league wouldn't stand in their way.
|1 week 2 days ago||Yes, it would be dumb to||
Yes, it would be dumb to change it for existing teams. But if Michigan didn't have one of the major teams, I would be in favor of them going with Michigan instead of Detroit. Again, this might have to do with the fact that I'm not from SE Michigan, so I've never identified with Detroit.
|1 week 2 days ago||As someone who grew up in GR,||
As someone who grew up in GR, I agree with this. I always cheered for the Detroit teams, and still do, but I never felt the need to rep Detroit, since I was from 3 hours away. This is why I think the state name is a good idea because it's more inclusive. If you're the only team in the state, why not include everyone? You might get more of the SW MI folks to cheer for the "Michigan" teams instead of Chicago, for example.
|1 week 2 days ago||For some of them, the answer||
For some of them, the answer to this is simple - they represent more than one "city" so rather than picking one of them, they pick the whole state/area. Should the Twins be the Minneapolis Twins or the St. Paul Twins? This is one where using the state makes a lot of sense. New Jersey is similar since NJ doesn't really have just one big city, it's all just a mash of NY (or Philly) suburbs and then a collection of smaller cities. Why pick one? Just do the whole state. For others, it just sounds better (Colorado Rockies sounds better than Denver Rockies, same with Texas Rangers).
You also missed one - Tamba Bay isn't a city, it is a region that includes two large cities (Tampa and St. Petersburg, and their surrounding suburbs). This one is similar to Minneapolis/St. Paul in that there are two large cities. Unlike the Twin Cities, they can't claim the whole state, so they claim the Tampa Bay area.
|1 week 2 days ago||Going bankrupt isn't the same||
Going bankrupt isn't the same thing as going out of business. The city of Detroit declared bankrupcy, but it's not like the city just shut down. Same thing with many businesses. I don't expect the university to just shut down.

To be honest, this never crossed my mind.

In his defense, the one posted below this was also posted by him. Not sure how much of a defense that is, but still.
