The highlight was my senior year when we were described as the best "0-9" team in the state after losing 28-12 to Kalamazoo Hackett.  Uniforms though were scarlet and gray.  Ugh.

It is MSU's coaching staff's job to fight for talented kids just like that is our staff's job.  It is an important decision and nothing wrong with taking more time to think about it.  I don't blame MSU's staff to try and get the kid to wait and reconsider.

Better to wait in terms of committing than to give his verbal and then decommit in a month.

What exactly is a hot take about that comment? That you don't like it? That its not something positive about Michigan? It happens in recruiting. He was ready to  committ, someone convinced him to take some time and think about it more that wasn't michigan. Michigan does that to recruits too to buy themselves more time.

If a recruit is looking likely to commit to your school and pushes it back its generally not the best sign or the end of the world. But the title of this post is absurd michigan homer language because it implies the only reason we might not get him is because michigan cooled on him.

Can you at least try to add something of value to this blog instead of constantly attacking fellow posters? Yes, ijohnb and ak47 can be concern trolls sometimes, but damn they add an idea or opinion to the board. 

You've made your thoughts known, you dislike them both. If you disagree, bring reason, or hit that minus 1 button and move on. Flooding the board with troll gifs adds absolutely nothing to the conversation.

ijohnb is okay, I guess, but look at ak47's posting history. It's nothing but depressing whining and contrarian bullshit. Literally zero value added to the board.

I'm not someone who thinks that opinions are automatically valuable. In fact, I think that most opinions are worth absolutely nothing.

Again, argue his post with facts. My post below agrees with his rebuttal but actually knock both him and the OP for mindless speculation. Adding a dancing troll gif gets old after the 20th straight post. We aren't here to attack each other...we are here to discuss Michigan sports.

Or just downvote and move on. I wasn't even talking to you Monocle, unless your other account is blueskidoo. Everyone of his posts is an attack at other members. Just asking him to add stuff to the conversation more often.

I post more pessimistic than I am because of the overwhelming homerism on this board but if you actually look at my posting history you would see a person that always roots for Michigan teams to do well when the games are being played. I predicted 10 wins for the football team last year, I was wrong about the basketball team but by the end of they year picked them to win the national championship in the bracket pool. But the general comments in this blog are ridiculous homer. The refs and big ten have a conspiracy against michigan, if michigan doesn't get a recruit it means the recruit got paid, michigan has essentially never done anything wrong, and on and on. I push back against that, and it just shows up so much most of my posts look negative.

So you don’t care what people think about you, but you care so much that they post like homers so you need to take a contrarian viewpoint? Why do you care so much about people posting positive Michigan things on a Michigan blog where people talk about Michigan? The answer is because you are a concern troll

Its a way for me to talk about michigan sports when I get bored at work. I read the primary content for info, comment on here to talk michigan sports. Plenty of people respond to my posts with other legitimate posts, its generally only when people choose to post about being annoyed by me that it isn't an interesting discussion which is why I generally don't respond to those posts.

Yes. I'm a clown because I pointed out ak47's incessant concern trolling. It's not that his post that's inherently wrong, or entirely unwarranted, it's just the latest in a culmination.

Look man, not everything needs to be spun into a worst case scenario. Is the worst case possible? Certainly. Always is. And I get that some people have to play the devil's advocate. But damn, when it comes from the same dudes over and over, it becomes trite and irritating. I don't choose to be a fan of this team so I can be concerned about everything all the time.

People need to relax. Sometimes the glass really is half full.

Blueskidoo is actually RedGreene He got shadowbanned for calling people trolls 24/7 for having different opinions while offering 0 to the conversation. 

The funny part is he didn't notice he got banned until fairly recently which is why you see this Blueskidoo guy pop up out of nowhere. 

Mannerisms are exactly the same. 

Unfortunate that he found out.
