247 Ranks Top 10 BIG10 RBs, Karan Higdon #3

Wisconsin's Jonathan Taylor is ranked #1, though in the article they rightfully point out Wisconsin has a great offensive line. Ohio St has 2 RBs in the list. But again, I think their offensive line has to be given credit, not just the RBs running ability. (That Ohio St offensive line was essentially built by Ed Warinner.)

ATHLON Ranks 130 College Football Teams: Michigan ranked #5

ATHLON Ranks 130 College Football Teams: Michigan ranked #5

This ranking is not a pre-season ranking. It's where Athlon predicts teams will be end the season ranked on January 8, 2019, the day after the National Championship on January 7:

This is not a preseason 130 ranking of teams going into the season. Instead, this ranking takes into account where we project teams to finish after the national championship in January. Athlon Sports projects where every team will finish in the final rankings at the conclusion of the upcoming season.

Though only having a short experience at playing football, 2019 OT, Danielson Ike, (6'6", 300) is already a 4 Star, and has an impressive offer sheet. Michigan, Stanford, Nebraska, Alabama, and Louisville, among others, are on the quickly growing list. Miami had held a "100%" crystal ball for him. But, the coach at Miami that had been recruiting him left Miami for a position at Alabama. Since then, contact between he and Miami has fallen way off.

I do not want to give this guy more oxygen.

this board is nearly unreadable because of his posts.  Maybe if everyone stops replying/commenting he will go away?  It is useless to try and have a reasonable conversation.  I come to this site to read and be entertained on all things U of M related; it is no longer fun.

as I stated earlier, this site needs a ‘mute’ or ‘ignore’ feature.  Mods, my guess is people are going to stop coming here if this is not dealt with.

this is just my personal opinion

Just happened now on WTKA.

Harbaugh came on radio and offered CWebb the invitation and he immediately accepted. Webber's first appearance at a Michigan game in Ann Arbor since 1994.
