Am I the only one that thinks "Tailgating with Tae" would have been a really great reward for the Kickstarter? I will gladly trade my shorts for that.
Thanks for all you're doing, being a GREAT Michigan Man!

One thing a lot of us have used ot justify Hoke's policy is to "protect the program," so that they are not holding a spot that could otherwise be given to another recruit. We saw this play out when Pocic was turned away because we were full...
However, what is the difference between holding a spot for a commit who verbally commits, and a player like Derrick Green or Treadwell who they REALLY REALLY want, but is doing the smart thing and kicking the tires first before they officially commit? Correct me if I'm wrong Ace, but referred multiple times to a potential recruit as a "backup plan" to either of these two. My understanding is that if a "backup plan" receiver wanted to commit at this point, the coaches would tell him "no" because they are holding a spot for Treadwell.
Basically what I'm asking is (and I dont' know the answer), is it preferable to "hold" a spot for an uncommitted recruit while he takes visits, or hold a spot for a commit who committed very early and then realizes that they want to make sure they're making the right choice for them.
FWIW, I do think that Hoke's policy isn't realistic given the pressure on kids to commit early--as we have all noted, recruiting starts VERY early in a recruit's life, and it's not fair to expect teenagers to make life-changing decisions and stick with them. That being said, I think Hoke and coaches are VERY right to expect that commits be up front with them about their feelings, and a policy geared toward that I'd be more on board with.

i think comparing gays to OSU fans is offensive to gays.

Ace, this is my 2nd year following recruiting really hard.
If Darboh and Chesson were getting close to a decision, would Hoke and co. use that information to try to get Diggs (who based on the rankings I want more, but what do I know?) to commit first? Is that something coaches do, or do they just kind of let the kids decide?
Basically, do the coaches have a draft board style list of WRs (and all positions, just WRs because that's the only need now) that they'd like, and keep all of them abreast of the others' decisions?
|1 year 30 weeks ago||MOAR 2-QB sets||
I feel like there is so much potential to create confusion in this set. I understand that there's a greater chance for either QB to get hurt, but I think if they practiced this in game situations, got good at it, and worked out the kinks, this is the most productive set we can throw out there.
I'd like to see the plays designed so one of (at least) 4 things can happen: DG runs, DG passes, Denard runs, Denard passes. THEN once you've got these things down, you can throw in RB runs as appropriate (or hell, have Vince throw a pass too, why not).
Defenses have no freakin' clue how to defend this. It's a gold mine of offensive yardage.

is that the food article is the one that finally got me to create a username and get started
Brian, major props on Logan, by far the best restaurant in town, and one of the best i've ever been to (including my snobby east coast elitist restaurants in boston). We went there for my graduation and my parents were blown away. GET THE BOAR BOLOGNESE, it's out of this world good.
Also missing Cafe Marie on North campus for breakfast...
ABC is a fav because of the games they got, shuffleboard and darts. when I drink i like to compete at something.
The only MSV place that i don't hate is Gratzi--however, they're all a good bet for your birthday, since they chop the check in half.
Pacific Rim is also pretty good, although hit and miss on quality. Surprisingly, the one i've been most impressed with besides Logan is Vinology. They have hit it out of the park every time i've gone for restaurant week.
Speaking of good deals, Black Pearl has a "restuarant week" menu every Thursday, 3 courses for $25. GREAT deal, and good outdoor seating in the summer.
