...says Denzel Valentine of Big Ten Tourney favorite MSU, which is 5-7 in its last 12 games. Cumong, man.

Big question is if Damien Harris will be at that Junior Day vs MSU

OLSM Daelin Hayes is visiting this weekend too, correct?

A "high-floor, low-ceiling" guy....it actually sounds a lot like a number of the guys Hoke recruits.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||She's nowhere near as bad as||
She's nowhere near as bad as Rothstein was when WN still existed. There wasn't a single article he wrote where I read something I didn't already know beforehand. His mailbags were the most awful things ever, he'd answer every question with a completely vague, noncommittal "answer" that wasn't an answer at all.

That is 100% true. I once emailed a writer at SI about one of their articles online because of the title and he got back to me saying "I don't write the headlines, much to my chagrin. Editors always go with something attention grabbing"

OSU started 11-0 in 2010-11 and finished 16-2....this is what this UM basketball team should be striving for. :)
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Curious||
Do we know how long it's been since ANY B1G team has started 8-0 in conference? I get it's been a while for UM to start 8-0, but when is the last time a B1G team has done this? I'm going to guess 6 years just for fun.

And thus, you enjoy UM's campus more than MSU's, validating my point.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||I don't think this is that||
I don't think this is that difficult to grasp. You visit MSU's campus and UM's campus and you will find one more enjoyable than the other. Just because McDowell happens to like MSU more and has more fun there doesn't mean UM's efforts are poor and that you need to analyze what has gone wrong. I mean, I don't think Urban and company are analyzing how they "fell short" when Peppers enjoyed UM more than OSU. It happens.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Maybe I'm hating on MSU too||
Maybe I'm hating on MSU too hard, but what on earth have they done to deserve still being a #1? They beat a solid (but not great) Kentucky team, filled with freshmen playing their 2nd NCAA game ever. They beat an OK Texas team on the road. They beat OSU and Minny at home, in OT. I just don't see how they are still a 1 seed at the moment. It just seems way too based on W-L record without enough regard to strength of schedule.

Honestly, it sounds like they have to convince the Campbell family of an OV, not George himself.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||As much as I like hearing||
As much as I like hearing this, I think we have to face the fact that once Stanford offers (why wouldn't they at some point?), it's all over....unless Shaw goes to the NFL I guess and even then, he still probably goes there.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Stauskas showed plenty of||
Stauskas showed plenty of signs of that last year (hence the "not just a shooter" meme)....not sure Irvin has shown that quite yet.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||More like it would help save||
More like it would help save the 2016 class. By the time UM is getting credit for a bounceback season, if it should happen, a lot of these 2015 kids will have made up their minds on where they are going or where they are taking visits.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||On a side note, you'd have to||
On a side note, you'd have to go back to Will Campbell to get the last #1 in-state player UM got, according to Rivals. In fact, most have gone to MSU. If McDowell does pick MSU, that will be the #1 player in-state 4 of the past 5 seasons for MSU....granted, none have been superstars (Gholston, Thomas, Burbridge) on the field for them.

Basically happened in 2011, with Arnett now at MSU - http://rivals.yahoo.com/Michigan/football/recruiting/rankings/rank-2704
Missed out on top 2 instate kids in 2012 too, only one to a rival though - http://rivals.yahoo.com/Michigan/football/recruiting/rankings/rank-2924

Wow, so Mone dropped out then.

Seeing how he's only 16-ish, he could still be growing.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||It seems understandable that||
It seems understandable that it was co-DC's when Urban was first hired since he didn't know Fickell, other than what he saw on TV, and I'm guessing there was a lot of pressure from the Ath Dept to retain Fickell. But to hire another co-DC after Withers leaves seems to say that Urban doesn't have a lot of faith in him, but is pressured to not fire him. Fickell probably has a lot of fans in the Ath Dept after falling on the sword when Tressel left.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||Could have to do with limited||
Could have to do with limited schollies too. 3-deep for 2015 season:
CB - Countess (Sr), Lewis (Jr), Douglas (So)
CB - Peppers (So), Stribling (Jr), Richardson (Sr), Watson (Fr)
That's pretty deep....of course, some of these guys may move to safety.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||Based on what I've read, OSU||
Based on what I've read, OSU soured on Holley and stopped recruiting him....so unless LJ is able to change their minds about him, Holley may remain with PSU.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||Fickle and Withers were||
Fickle and Withers were co-DC's for the past 2 years, but yeah, kind of says a lot to me if I'm Fickle that Urban doesn't have much faith in me now that he's hired another co-DC.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||As much as I like Peppers'||
As much as I like Peppers' potential, maybe we should hold off on saying Fitzpatrick's potential is nowhere near as good as Peppers' before Peppers even steps on the field as a UM player?
|9 weeks 4 days ago||Given Yeldon, Henry, Lacy and||
Given Yeldon, Henry, Lacy and all the other massive amounts of success the Bama RB's have had, I have to imagine Harris is pleased on the surface.

|9 weeks 4 days ago||Basically feels like he's||
Basically feels like he's been in the UM huddle each of the past few games against UM so knows UM's offense well, would be an easy transition
|9 weeks 5 days ago||Also, what should be noted is||
Also, what should be noted is the % of all FBS schools that run a pro style. If only 20% of all FBS schools run a pro style, then having 4 out of the top 25 is roughly the same % as the overall % of schools running a pro style offense.
|9 weeks 5 days ago||That kind of feels a little||
That kind of feels a little too much "what have you done for me lately?" at least in regards to Quick. I'm sure the injury doesn't help but the guy has a 94% save percentage between the last 2 playoff seasons combined. Meanwhile, the Canadian goalies have been some of the most high variance goalies out there, especially Luongo and Fleury. Maybe it's just me, but I feel much more confident with the group of US goalies than the Canadian ones.
|9 weeks 5 days ago||Goalies||
It's amazing how much better the US is than Canada when it comes to goalies. The US has Miller, Quick, Howard, Schneider, Bishop, etc. Granted, all you need is one and Price may just that.

Never underestimate what Dave Brandon might do.
