i would find this more credible if it was about Tom Crean

It doesn't say he's a Michigan State fan, just that he "also pulls for the Spartans" which is likely true for a lot of Michigan grads, especially those from Michigan. I have a lot of friends who pull for MSU or other local teams in addition to Michigan. That's not uncommon.
|55 min 12 sec ago||Defensive tackle will not be||
Defensive tackle will not be a question mark. Between Glasgow, Mone, Pipkins, Henry and Wormley we are looking good there. DE might be a question, but DT will be good.
|1 hour 30 sec ago||Not sure why that would be||
Not sure why that would be unpopular. He is the oldest and most experienced QB on the team. Him being the best of the bunch is likely the best case scenario.

That's not what a medical hardship is. Medical hardship means he's done for good.

But does anyone know what Speight has on his mind?!

Well if he said it at a party...
Things must have changed since I was in college. Taking Gary to Deke would have convinced him to sign with OSU.
|17 hours 3 min ago||Not that it changes your||
Not that it changes your point, but his casinos are not on the strip. They are in the Fremont district (old Vegas). It's not like he owns the Bellagio or something.
|17 hours 23 min ago||You guys are cherry picking||
You guys are cherry picking examples just to prove your point. If you pick Trey Burke (or Kevin Durant) you have to pick a football equivalent (which Brandon Graham is not). Who would you rather have - one year of Durant, or 3 years of Woodson? Or if you want to take Michigan bias out of it - Vince Young (or Reggie Bush or Adrian Peterson).
I understand that a lot of people like basketball more than I do, but I think I'm in the majority. At Michigan, football trumps all. Would you give up Peppers for one year of DeAngelo Russell? I don't think most M fans say yes to that.

Wow. I totally would have rather wanted Clowney.
|1 day 49 min ago||We can't forget about||
We can't forget about Ojemudia. He's an experienced player (more so than Marshall, at least) who has shown the ability to get to the QB. He might start, but he'll at least be a solid contributor and should be a strength.

I agree with all of that. But still, football > basketball. I will always want the blue chip football recruit over the blue chip basketball recruit.

I would pick Gary. No doubt Brown is more likely to be a star and would have a larger impact, but football > basketball. Sorry.

I would certainly prefer LA, but that's the only city of the Big 3 that Harbaugh hasn't coached in. He spent a lot of time in both SF and SD so he may have more connections there.
As for Tampa, there is tons of talent there, and Orlando isn't noticeably closer to SE FL to make a difference.

Does that make Harbaugh Captian Jean-Luc Picard?
EDIT: after googling, I realize that name is from Star Trek, and I knew it only from the song Banditos by the Refreshments. I never knew that that was a reference to something until today.

Do we know where the CA camp will be held?
|1 day 5 hours ago||If Morris is getting 3 times||
If Morris is getting 3 times as many reps as either of the other QBs, then it sounds like he's the best of the bunch. Is that what you're just sayin'?

It's never humid in CA. And wouldn't you like to pull out those golf clubs whenever you want? And don't you hate it when the day you picked to golf with your buddies is raining? That also doesn't happen here.

Agreed. I didn't mean for any of my lists to be exhaustive.

My point was that where you choose to live doesn't make you a crybaby. You seem to imply that if you value warmth at all, you are a crybaby. So why not move to Greenland?
|4 days 5 hours ago||You certainly were hating on||
You certainly were hating on people who leave Michigan because of the weather. You said we were "wusses" I believe. And in your post above you said I didn't "like to get snow in my vag."
I know CA isn't for everyone. It's perfect for my tastes. There are also a lot of reasons people don't like it, and I'm not going to judge them or call them names (like you have been doing) if they don't appreciate the same things I do or don't want to deal with the negatives. Some people say "I can't stand LA because I hate all the congestion." I get that. To me, the positives outweigh that stuff, just like to you, the positives of Michigan outweigh the inconvenience that snow brings (even if you love doing stuff in it, you can't deny that stuff like wet feet, sweeping/scraping off your car, etc aren't an inconvenience.
The point of my post above was not to debate MI vs CA (or anywhere else). It was simply that leaving one state for another doesn't make you a wuss and what makes someone depressed (for you, lack of seasons) could be seen as a positive for someone else. Have some fucking perspective.
|4 days 15 hours ago||Bullshit. Snow sucks. Sure,||
Bullshit. Snow sucks. Sure, there are some fun things you can do in the snow. But don't bring up skiing or snowboards because there is very little decent skiing in Michigan and even if you said the Boyne/Nubs type places qualify, I can get to better ski resorts from my house in LA in less time. So that's out.
Shoveling, driving in, walking in and all around dealing with the snow sucks a lot. Even people who love living in Michigan know that this is true. I love Michigan, and I would move back if the circumstances were right, but it would be in spite of the snow, not because of it.
You think the lack of seasons is depressing? You know what else is depressing? When your pants are wet up to the knee from the snow or your tires locking up at the wrong time and ending up in a ditch or smashed into the car in front of you (or worse). Or having your BBQ rained out or needing a completely different wardrobe for different parts of the year. You like swimming? You get to do it 4, maybe 5 months out of the year. When you're looking at dirty, brown snow, I'm looking at palm trees and 75 degrees. Poll the whole freaking world and ask which place is depressing.
Let it be known that I'm not hating on Michigan, I'm only hating on drjaws for insinuating that anyone who decides to move out of the snow does so because they are a wuss or a crybaby. I think you're a crybaby for not living in fucking Greenland, tough guy.
And for the record, California doesn't feel like a sauna year round, in fact most of it never feels like a sauna, it's just pleasant all the time. It gets hot where I live in the summer, but there's no humidity so our hot weeks are no worse than yours. And we have no mosquitos.

Water. AZ has very little, and between the Grand and Thornapple Rivers, Reeds Lake (and other nearby inland lakes) and Lake Michigan, there is lots of water to enjoy. My wife is a native Californian, and the first time I took her to Grand Haven she thought it was the ocean.
Also, tell her to research Forest Hills Public Schools. Regularly recognized as one of the best school systems in the country, and an overall great area to live.
|5 days 2 hours ago||I wasn't basing my comment||
I wasn't basing my comment simply on draft position, but I don't think we lack depth on the DL. At NT, Pipkins is 3rd string. Other DT/DE guys include Wormley, Henry, Godin and Taco who all have lots of PT and throw in Hurst, Poggi and MO who all have showed promise. That's not a bad amount of depth and (thankfully) doesn't include any frosh.
|5 days 5 hours ago||Also DL, boy. And I can't be||
Also DL, boy. And I can't be too worried about the LB corps because although we lost JMFR, we got Morgan back and both Gedeon and McCray sound ready. This D could (should?) be pretty damn good this year.

So I guess we're not super worried about our secondary.

Looks like a good sized kid who can tackle well and likes to hit. You can always find a way to use a kid like that. His film is actually pretty nice for a walk-on. Kinda surprised he didn't at least have MAC offers.

Maybe, maybe not. But we still didn't beat them out for him. When we "won" him, we beat next to nobody, we were lucky his dad's alma mater didn't offer.
