Not really.   What they confused is where Dwan Mathis originally committed thinking it was us, not them.

BTW - am I the only one who hates the fact that threads now only have links and not pictures they way they used to when we had the old, crappy website instead of this awesome new one?

yeah, U-M was making no effort in pursuing Mathis and already has their QB for the year, so it was big nothing post .... it almost makes me think the author originally mistook Michigan for MSU here and published the article as such, was then called out, and instead of completely deleting that section, he just tried to spin it in a way to avoid deleting half his article.

Did the guys create an opinion/input thread on the new site format?    If so I missed it.

Anyway, I agree with HM - I’m in no way afraid of change, in fact love it.   However the new site is much less enjoyable.  I definitely stop by much much less than I used to.  It’s less intuitive, the Board is screwy in that moving beyond the 5 or 6 posts in the right banner gives me the complete history of the board going back to 2008 rather than just the most recent first.  I predict the new site really decreases traffic, sorry to say.   I never complained about the old format which was likely the majority.   The vocal minority likely got under the mods’ skin.  Oh well - we get what we get.   On the upside it’s forced me out into other UM sites that now get the attention MGoBlog used to get from me.

I'm way confused with that article.  They state MSU lost him, but that UM also lost him?  Like UM was after him and he went to OSU so both MSU and UM lost him at the same time?  Very oddly written article.

The writer was really stretching to justify getting Harbaugh’s name/picture in this article for the extra clicks.

I expected this to be one of those cases where they used the wrong logo or something, but this guy just seemed to make up a story and run with it. Did Mathis even have an offer from Michigan?

I don't think UM fans or Midwesterners generally realize how easily others confuse schools with states in their names. A few months ago I got negged for suggesting that the scandals at MSU might lead some national outlets to confuse it with Michigan, and the response didn't surprise me. After all, MGoBlog is DEVOTED to an intense focus that makes confusion seem ludicrous. But outside their own fan bases and regions, people easily mix up Michigan and Michigan State, just as others mix up Arizona and Arizona State.
