stuff like this is said about LA recruits every year and 99% of them end up at USC.

Sorry, OP. But as a wise man once said, "you might not be interested in politics, but politics is interested in you."

Doubtful. They're a ruthless mob.

the day a 5* from Oklahoma comes to Michigan is the day I hurl my body into the sun.

the current recruits were like six-years-old when Jake Long was at Michigan. That history shouldn't have anything to do with an OL recruit's decision.

The nosedive Rivals has taken is pretty outrageous 

06/29/2018 - 10:55am It's really not that wrong…

It's really not that wrong if you consider that the best college football teams sign the highest ranked players year after year. Of course a program can be successful with lower ranked players (especially if they're the guys with good offer lists) and I'm not sure how much I trust the recruiting sites right now. But it becomes that much harder to compete with Alabama, Georgia, OSU, etc.

05/30/2018 - 6:48pm It helps that the bag men are

It helps that the bag men are laying low...for now.

05/30/2018 - 6:33pm So did the recruiting

So did the recruiting business just turn out to be far less lucrative than sites such as ESPN thought it would be? 

05/30/2018 - 1:34am Wilson was defintely project

Wilson was defintely project in the late first round by this point in the draft process. I distinctly remember Brian saying he should declare because of it. On the other hand, Matthews has Darius Morris written all over him.

I think that's supposed to be a white Prince

05/20/2018 - 2:28am Ohio State has clearly had a

Ohio State has clearly had a better team than Michigan for, what, 10 of the last 12 years (I'd say 2006 and 2016 were about dead even. Michigan was better in 2011 but that season was an aberration)? I suspect Michigan will start winning The Game when they start fielding a team that is just as good or better than OSU. Unfortunately that has been really rare for over a decade now. 

05/14/2018 - 11:38am I would suspect Vegas

I would suspect Vegas welcomes this, as it is the only place with the infrastructure in place to handle expanded betting. They are ahead of their hypothetical competitiors in that sense.

05/14/2018 - 11:35am People may have stil drank

People may have still drank alcohol during Prohibition, but its end had transformative effects upon the alcohol industry itself (i.e. there actually was in fact an "industry" again) which in turn reshaped how and what Americans drank, where and when they drank, who they drank with, etc. Ending the ban on sports gambling will have similar effects. 

05/06/2018 - 2:21pm They also have three recent

They also have three recent Michigan players, Connor, Jacob Trouba, and Andrew Copp. 

04/27/2018 - 11:36pm While I'm as pissed as anyone

While I'm as pissed as anyone about Hurst being overlooked, it really isn't surprising. NFL GMs are the most risk-averse people on the planet. If a player doesn't fit their preconceived notions of a sure pick, they won't get drafted. Mo's heart scare has unfairly doomed him.

04/25/2018 - 2:54pm Sounds great

Sounds great

04/20/2018 - 5:08pm I was also really surprised

I was also really surprised at how dismissive they were of the Pacers in last week's podcast. The Cavs were only two games better than the Pacers this season and clearly don't match up well with Oladipo, Collison, or Turner. 

04/18/2018 - 2:24am Hmmm no he's actually just a

Hmmm no he's actually just a grifter who probably won't offer anything meaningful in terms of coaching.

04/13/2018 - 4:38pm And those were aided by

And those were aided by Tressell's firing.

04/04/2018 - 7:28pm I'm glad the game @ Maryland

I'm glad the game @ Maryland was mentioned, specifically the first half. I think that was the point when it was really clear how legitimately good Michigan was, and vaporizing a decent B1G opponent at their home arena is beyond fun. 

04/03/2018 - 5:02pm Holy shit I didn't know

Holy shit I didn't know Holtmann made that kind of money. 

04/03/2018 - 12:37am The officials decided early

The officials decided early that they were going to call a tight game and that was always going to hurt the defensive-minded team. Then DiVencenzo started to rain death from above and that was that. 

03/31/2018 - 10:17pm hmmm I think we should play

hmmm I think we should play Kansas instead of Villanova.

03/30/2018 - 11:40am The defense lost steam

The defense lost steam because the offense couldn't stay on the field. 

03/29/2018 - 5:18pm I think this is a reasonable

I think this is a reasonable take. This Michigan team is certainly good enough to make the Final Four regardless of match-ups, but its entire half of the bracket being blown up by the end of the first weekend made things more favorable compared to how the other half of the bracket played out.

03/28/2018 - 2:39pm Miles Bridges is 6'7". He's

Miles Bridges is 6'7". He's going to have to build his NBA career around playing on the perimeter.

03/28/2018 - 12:50pm It's pathetic and

It's pathetic and disconcerting that the offensive staff didn't realize that problem before the season started. 

03/25/2018 - 6:55pm Football will season upon

Football will season upon hockey and MBB's success and improve to 9-3. 

03/23/2018 - 3:04pm They definitely don't have to

They definitely don't have to play like they played last night in order to win.

03/23/2018 - 1:37am They look a lot like the team

They look a lot like the team we just eviscerated. 

03/16/2018 - 2:23am We just played like shit and

We just played like shit and beat the equivalent of Wisconsin by 14. Pretty good.

03/12/2018 - 2:38am Or they're against teams like

Or they're against teams like Oklahoma that have fallen apart as the season has gone on.

03/11/2018 - 1:30pm I bet no matter where

I bet no matter where Michigan is playing, the fanbase will travel better than a comparable seed thstnis located closer to the regional site.

03/10/2018 - 10:54am They're 120th on Kenpom,

They're 120th on Kenpom, three spots behind Minnesota for reference. 

02/27/2018 - 11:18pm UNC played the toughest

UNC played the toughest schedule in the country according to KenPom. They probably aren't moving much no matter what.

02/25/2018 - 9:38pm a bowl full of my piss the

a bowl full of my piss the morning after I down a bunch of shitty bourbon

02/21/2018 - 4:29pm Actually, the game is going

Actually, the game is going to come down to whichever team prays to the right combination of indigenous spirits.

02/21/2018 - 4:11pm I can't get too excited

I can't get too excited because I no longer have any idea what drives a good football program. The randomness and chance and unseen factors that go into building a good college coaching staff have become clearer and clearer and it makes me shrug and say "whatever" when I think about Michigan football. 

Tl;dr: I have no idea what's going to happen and therefore don't feel much either way.

02/20/2018 - 6:21pm Wichita has the Koch

Wichita has the Koch Brothers, a money cannon that rivals or exceeds any other school's. I suspect Marshall would only leave for a program like Kansas. He's already making almost a million more a year than Beilein. 

02/17/2018 - 3:48pm Way to go, OP

Way to go, OP

02/12/2018 - 6:12pm He's shooting 40% from three

He's shooting 40% from three and his average three-point attempt is from way beyond the NBA 3-point line. He's an incredibly good basketball player for a 19-year-old. People who hate on Trae Young have to be the most insufferable, miserable sports fans out there.

Don't worry, OP. I already got your wife her Valentines gift. 

01/31/2018 - 3:57pm There needs to be some sort

There needs to be some sort of fee but it shouldn't be so exorbitant that an individual cannot reasonably pay the fee. Your access to money shouldn't dictate your access to information produced by your own government(s).
