|08/16/2018 - 10:53am||Listening to this song…||
Listening to this song brought a tear to my eye - sad day for those of us native Detroiters.
Everyone knows that Aretha had a big voice and bigger personality - not as many people know that she had bigger cajones than 99.9% of men. She had to face down some seriously stupid and backwards people and always did it with grace and, yes, Respect.
Always love this woman...RIP
|08/13/2018 - 10:03pm||Are you kidding me? This…||
Are you kidding me? This Shawn L. Martin/ Maizen / Bluey.
I remember this same quote as when Velazquez committed.
Dude - you are just sad. Don’t you have anything better to do? Go sign up for an on-line dating service - you will thank me.
|08/13/2018 - 9:18pm||I heard we might have to…||
I heard we might have to vacate that Outback Bowl loss.
|08/13/2018 - 1:24pm||EMB was the first person I…||
EMB was the first person I thought about when I heard this story. Given whatever went thought his brain the past six months, he obviously doesn't want to keep the shoes.
Also, he said something about launching an ICO (crypto offering) so he probably used shoe money to seed it. It is rational within the overall context of craziness.
|08/12/2018 - 8:51pm||Harrison is a WDE so I don’t…||
Harrison is a WDE so I don’t see the relevance to his recruitment.
It might mean that Rodas Johnson is out - be it his choice or Michigan’s.
|08/12/2018 - 8:48pm||I don’t care about the starz…||
I don’t care about the starz given that we are talking about Matty and Don Brown - who have proven their ability to find undervalued recruits.
I am wondering why they are going after so many DL types. I would rather take a flier on a WR or a LB as those seem to be thin positions looking out to 2020-2021.
|08/12/2018 - 5:05pm||Really like this kid! I…||
Really like this kid! I would root for him no matter where he goes - but really glad he picked Michigan.
|08/09/2018 - 10:57pm||Exactly, why are you guys…||
Exactly, why are you guys complaining about someone with ties to an insider giving us fantastic updates??????
Your comment was like the 1000th comment today about the link / no link.
|08/01/2018 - 11:52am||Meyer made a mistake going…||
Meyer made a mistake going after McMurphy - should have kept his mouth shut ("I won't be discussing this today to protect the privacy of the family..."). McMurphy is now out for both notoriety and blood.
This is the downfall for all douche bags - not being able to shut their f&cking mouths. He couldn't help himself because he want to look like the good guy.
If he lied about knowing of the 2015 incident at the B1G Media Day, this could actually be trouble for him.
|07/26/2018 - 1:34am||I would call Delano a star. …||
I would call Delano a star. He was drafted Day 2 last year.
And he stopped JT for no gain!
|07/25/2018 - 11:54pm||Why the fu&k are you going…||
Why the fu&k are you going out of your way to take a $hit on one of our players?
|07/23/2018 - 11:57am||Were the actual ticket costs…||
Were the actual ticket costs deductible or just that stupid "donation" that was deductible? That whole PSD concept (across the college sports industry - not just Michigan) was a scam.
|07/20/2018 - 9:40pm||I can think of a couple…||
I can think of a couple reasons that he is a very lucky man.
|07/20/2018 - 12:53pm||I disagree - Nebraska will…||
I disagree - Nebraska will surprise some people this year, especially towards the end of the season and will be a B1G West contender in 2019.
|07/16/2018 - 1:49am||I wish he was a baller, I…||
I wish he was a baller, I wish he had a girl if he did he would call her...
|07/15/2018 - 10:19am||He literally the same size…||
He literally the same size and weight as 2 different 2018 one and dones.
|07/15/2018 - 10:16am||Yeah, if we were going to…||
Yeah, if we were going to miss on a high priority target, it was lucky that it was at PG.
We are loaded at PG for the next 3 years.
|07/14/2018 - 7:24pm||What part seems outrageous? …||
What part seems outrageous? The part about OSU looking up or the part about Carton having trouble beating out the 3 PGs already on Michigan’s roster.
|07/14/2018 - 7:20pm||Maizen told me that Beilein…||
Maizen told me that Beilein couldn’t recruit basketball players so he started going after football players.
when Carton bailed on us, he decided to pursue Ford.
|07/14/2018 - 3:47pm||Yes, I want any guy named…||
Yes, I want any guy named Rocket. The fact that he is a local kid and would seem to be a good complement to DeJulius makes it all the better.
|07/14/2018 - 3:43pm||I would say that we need to…||
I would say that we need to look at SG. We seem thin there, especially if Poole goes early to the NBA (which I think is likely).
|07/14/2018 - 3:40pm||If I remember right, wasn’t…||
If I remember right, wasn’t C.J. Walker a combo guard? Or did he lose his job to a combo guard?
either way, he and Luther are not as deep a room as Simpson, Brooks and DeJulius.
|07/14/2018 - 3:33pm||I don’t personally disagree…||
I don’t personally disagree with you - but try convincing a 17 year old 5 star (who probably has all of his friends, family and coaches telling him he is going to the NBA) that he is not going to be a 1 and Done.
I would also throw in that Holtmann did a good job at Butler with player development. So this is not a totally irrational choice.
I guess I could see it either way.
|07/14/2018 - 3:19pm||Honestly doesn’t seem like…||
Honestly doesn’t seem like that bad of a decision to me. He probably wants to be a 1 and done and OSU looked like an improved team under Holtmann.
He would be looking up at Simpson, Brooks and DeJulius (or at least 2 of these 3) his freshman year. Even assuming he can beat out DeJulius and / or Brooks in 2020 - he would be a minimum 2 and done at Michigan.
This kid will start right away at OSU and get his 1 and done shot.
|07/14/2018 - 3:12pm||Where is Maizen when you…||
Where is Maizen when you need him? /s
stinks because Carton looks like a stud but PG at Michigan is absolutely loaded for the next 3-4 years.
I am perfectly fine with Beilein skipping a PG is 2019 and waiting until 2020.
|07/14/2018 - 6:12am||What are you talking about??…||
What are you talking about??? The 2021 season? How could you possibly know anything about anything for that season as of today?
|07/13/2018 - 9:06pm||I was laughing when a few…||
I was laughing when a few Morans on this board were complaining that Gary was underperforming. He got doubled on 80% of plays and even tripled at times.
Interesting, I was reading Hurst’s draft profile (pre-heart concern) and one of the only things that they dinged him with was the fact that he played next to Gary - and offenses had been schemed to specifically focus on Gary. Only other ding was that he was not well suited, size-wise for an NFL 3-4 scheme.
|07/13/2018 - 11:00am||How could they possibly know…||
How could they possibly know better? /s
Anyway, this seems like the last season for Ash.
|07/12/2018 - 4:17pm||Yeah, agreed. Dude needs to…||
Yeah, agreed. Dude needs to get off his high horse. People get that upset being trolled about local candidates in AA?
If the Mods were throwing in comments re: Trump, Obama, Sessions, abortion, 2nd amendment, etc... debates - that is different because those are contentious topics.
|07/12/2018 - 4:13pm||Is this really what Rivals…||
Is this really what Rivals prospect pages look like? Or is this some sort of error page?
If so, I think they have given up as well.
|07/11/2018 - 12:52pm||I am not part of the PC…||
I am not part of the PC police or anything like that so I didn't want to imply that you said something wrong. I understood that you were flattering both guys.
I just thought German Rashan Gary added something to the reference. Like I said, in any case, let's hope God and the Universe make it so!
|07/11/2018 - 11:49am||I would have said a German…||
I would have said a German Rashan Gary, but either way, let’s go with that inflection.
|07/09/2018 - 12:15am||I appreciate you being…||
I appreciate you being honest about being an OSU fan and you don't seem like you are trolling; however, a few notes:
1. OSU was after Chris Hinton and Nolan Rumler and, in fact, continue to reach out to both. There was some chatter re: Rumler and OSU but he seems to have shut that down.
2. OSU was going hard after Stephen Herron when he committed and, in fact, there is still a CB on OSU for him (for what that is worth) - haven't heard that they are trying to flip him, so maybe not interested anymore
It is a bit ridiculous to say "I think some of Michigan's commits are overrated". Of course, that could be true, but you could literally say that about every single team's recruiting class. And you would be right 99% of the time that at least a couple of recruits in every class are overrated.
|07/08/2018 - 10:20pm||I won't stand for anti-East…||
I won't stand for anti-East Quad discrimination on this board :) From my perspective as a former MoJo residence, all of the Quads are beneath us... LOL...
|07/08/2018 - 10:15pm||That is fair. He definitely…||
That is fair. He definitely deserves some credit for the excellent core he put together for the 2015 and 2016 seasons. I don't think he would have coached them to 10 win seasons (we were heading for a 4-8 record in 2015 based on QBs alone for 2015).
His recruiting collapse in 2014 and 2015 made regression in 2017 inevitable. 9-3 was chalk for 2017 and the season played out exactly as expected except that Michigan should have beaten MSU. And they should have won the bowl game although who really cares about a glorified exhibition.
|07/08/2018 - 9:10pm||Seriously dude, this is…||
Seriously dude, this is supposed to be fun. Nobody’s life is on the line.
if you are truly this angry and frustrated about the college choices of 16 and 17 year old kids, you need to start rooting for Bama or just find a new hobby altogether.
i love when Michigan wins but I don’t let losses impact my life.
get some perspective
|07/08/2018 - 7:10pm||Guy is working hard to troll…||
Guy is working hard to troll this recruiting class. At least he didn’t run and hide like the rest of his brethren during and after commitmas the last two weeks.
Not that ratings math is important but Michigan has a top 10 class in terms of avg ranking - and this will go up over 90 after Charbonnet, Gray and Williams get re-ranked higher. 247 has come out publicly that these are moving up.
|07/08/2018 - 10:45am||Pretty sure that no internet…||
Pretty sure that no internet message board has ever “mattered”. This is entertainment, not life and death.
|07/07/2018 - 5:21pm||They don’t have people like…||
They don’t have people like Michael Jordan and Lebron James. Those types of athletes only come around once a decade.
|07/07/2018 - 5:19pm||Lebron would be 6’8” and 215…||
Lebron would be 6’8” and 215 lbs if he were a pro soccer player - all of his training the last 20 years would have been different.
Would he be elite? Hard to say, but try stopping him on corner kicks.
Barry Sanders would have been a Maradona- like player and Michael Jordan would have been unstoppable on crosses.
|07/07/2018 - 3:02pm||Mine is for a turtle…||
Mine is for a turtle exploration center. I guess they know I am a dad in the Cayman Islands!
|07/07/2018 - 3:00pm||Just had a crazy and random…||
Just had a crazy and random thought - what if Kevin Durant was a futbol goalie. His height, wing span, and athleticism would revolutionize the game.
This is why we don't dominate in soccer, if our top athletes were playing, we would be Brazil + Germany on steroids.
|07/06/2018 - 4:41pm||Difference is that Derrick…||
Difference is that Derrick Henry wanted to play RB and Crouch does not.
|07/06/2018 - 4:33pm||I believe the reason we are…||
I believe the reason we are taking less DTs than expected the last two years is that Don Brown is planning to use more 3 man fronts going forward.
Some analyst mentioned that a few months back and it fits the recruiting pattern.
|07/06/2018 - 12:45pm||A team could do worse than…||
A team could do worse than have a 3 point assassin like Robinson as their 12th man. Even if he is only their for specialty situations - most 12th men never get off the bench in non-garbage time.
|07/06/2018 - 12:39pm||wut? Is that because of the…||
wut? Is that because of the political posts that have been put up?
I live out of the country so I haven't paid any attention. Has that been a big topic on the Board?
|07/06/2018 - 11:49am||Anyone have an idea when…||
Anyone have an idea when Draftageddon starts? [Ducks] but seriously, I would love some content.
|07/05/2018 - 6:47pm||Let’s not shoot our wad…||
Let’s not shoot our wad before our partner unbuttons her blouse.
|07/05/2018 - 6:45pm||I have to admire AK47, he is…||
I have to admire AK47, he is the only troll that didn’t run off into the forest when the commit barrage hit his trench.
He is even doing his best to throw shade on the class even as the barrage continues. He managed to forget about what is potentially an epic DLine haul and overall fantastic defensive recruit class.
|07/05/2018 - 5:58pm||Thank you - much appreciated||
