Bunch of mentions in the twittersphere.  Was DL coach at Navy, then ASU.  Another young, aggressive recruiter.

Not confirmed, but directionally looks like right type of hire.  Played in NFL

Not really seeing anywhere that he was hired, just rumors that he interviewed/is one of UM's targets. OP where are you seeing twitter rumors that he was hired?

Honestly, I hope this the fallback guy. I would much prefer Sean Spencer(PSU), Brian Baker(MSU) or Ben Albert(Duke).

I think by any reasonable measure UM's 2019 class was better than OSU's.

I don't think there's any reasonable measure by which it was far better than OSU's.

It's a bit of a stretch to generalize this forward.  OSU was dealing with really bad PR, and the Head Coach was suspended for 2 months, during which time he couldn't recruit.  OSU's class was worse than it had been other years under Meyer, and if that's just a one year blip, it's not such a big deal.

On the other hand, we have no idea what to expect out of Day.  We don't know his floor or his ceiling. We will get some clues from 2020, but a lot of the groundwork for that class has alreay been layed, so I think 2021 will be the first really strong bit of evidence.

For Harbaugh's part, 2019 was a very good class, but 2018 was pretty bad.   UM should never, ever have a year like 2018, period.  So while 2019 is very encouraging, it would be prudent to wait a few more years to see if it's the norm or not.

My pet peeve (especially among NFL announcers, looking at you Booger and Witten) is when someone starts a conversation with "You talk about..."

"You talk about a guy who can block."  "When you talk about fast, you talk about this guy."  "Talk about a coach who knows how to scheme."  Booger and Witten start their sentences this way at least 20 times per game.  No, you assholes, I wasn't talking about that.  No one was.  Find a new way to lazily start a sentence.

On the plus side, my dad and I have turned it into a drinking game.

At least umbig11 gives information.  I don't understand how Michigan fans on Twitter follow and drool all over every tweet from Bluevod. They guy will tweet some shit like "things are happening ", or "tick tock" and people ask him 50 questions and he says absolutely nothing. Ever. Umbig11 can't always be right, but he does provide some insider stuff.

I will never understand people who go after UMBig11 for no reason. The majority of the info he has posted on here usually ends up being true. As he's often stated during coaching searches...things are fluid. Look at what happen with Enos last year...not even Harbaugh saw that one coming. Just enjoy what the guy brings to the table and quit your whining.
