I don't have enough points anymore to start a thread but TomVH updated our recruitment of OL Chris Muller earlier today. Muller says he's 50-50 between Michigan and Rutgers. Article is paywalled.!/topic/1327858436-888-40

Would it have been better if I said he's making a decision between Rutgers and Michigan, neither team has a lead? I'm really curious, I've been a daily reader of this blog for 4 years and have gleamed paywalled info from countless posts. I didn't just copy and paste the post nor did I reveal all of the info that Tom posted.

While Brian is very lax on this issue, he says don't relay every last detail.  The truth is, that post from TomVH really only had that one detail, Muller is 50/50 between the two.  This post relayed everything that TomVH had to say.  It's better to be vague like, we still have a good shot with Muller.

He said don't cut and paste it word for word, and don't give every detail, yes, but if there is only one piece of news, that's all that can be told. It's not a requirement to obscure the facts. As said below, you can copyright the text, but you can't hide info. If you want it a secret, don't publish it. No one owns what someone else said. Give it up.

You would know where he asked that. Hint: its not on mgoblog anywhere.

And we will know when the kid announces..that's what I meant. Picking this apart, minute by minute, is like the asshole driver who cuts off cars to save a net of 30 seconds in an hour long commute.

By the way, the kid doesn't need tvhs approval to announce.

That's all bent out of shape because you're realizing you're paying for nothing, because information breaks instantly in this day and age, and to pay for it is, well, not too bright. He may "ask" it, but if he didn't ask it here (which would be the height of hypocrisy since he benefited from this whole format) then what obligation is anyone here to keep what someone else tells him private?

The $$$ value is in what the kid says.  If he had tweeted it would be out there for free. But because he tells Tom it give the Tom the right to make a profit off of what the kid says, when the kid can't see any of that money?  The kid telling Tom, and not asking him to keep it confidential, means he wants it public. I doubt his intent is to make it public...but just tell the people who pay for your site.  If the kid tells it, he either wants it out there, or doesn't want it out there at all.  He's profiting off of the players with them getting nothing in return. But pub.  And restricted pub is even less of a benefit.

You write something, you've created a personal work.  You just pass along something someone else says, that's in no way different than someone passing along what Tom said.  Because Tom didn't pay or his quote either.

Not to be a buzz kill but on scout Sam Webb and company have said the opposite, that he made contact with coaches and they were not interested. Dunno. Sam also says gut feeling re Kozan is we got him.
