Classy kid and seems like he comes from a great family!  Go Blue!!!!

A 3rd string running back at Alabama.  

I’m not really butthurt - I will be happy for Najee to be an NFL All-Pro - just couldn’t resist the cheap pop.

Terribly underrated comment - how are there not more Caddyshack fans in this board?

They wanted to apply to MSU but they couldn’t find a pen.

 

Howard Stern fans will appreciate

Basically- there are a handful of good teams and then a whole mess of mediocrity.  

Voters basically think Florida is the best team out of that mess.  Not sure I agree (I would probably go with Washington) but any team at #9 would elicit the same response.

The college choices of teenagers isn’t prayer-worthy

11/26/2018 - 4:34pm Scoring a TD with 9 minutes…

Scoring a TD with 9 minutes left to get within 2 possessions is not garbage time.  You can win a game down 2 scores with 9 minutes left. 

The last TD with a true freshman QB was obviously garbage time- no disagreement there.

11/26/2018 - 2:52pm Yes, agreed.  They keep…

Yes, agreed.  They keep deleting because they say it has been posted but there is literally no Kingsbury post left on the board.

11/26/2018 - 2:43pm Don't need to go to a true…

Don't need to go to a true Air Raid, more like a 2018 Bama style modified Air Raid.  Besides even Air Raid offenses need possession receivers.  We have three top tier WRs along with a bunch of other solid WRs...

Ronnie Bell did not suck as a true Freshman, that says something good about his future. 

Oliver Martin may well be dynamic, but at a minimum I would see his floor as being a more athletic Grant Perry.

Giles Jackson seems like a perfect Air Raid slot.

Sounds like a good start to me...Bringing in Kingsbury could help recruit kids like Johnson or Ford...

11/26/2018 - 2:35pm I checked the Board and didn…

I checked the Board and didn't see anything.  Where was it discussed?  I am legitimately interested in what people think of the guy. 

11/26/2018 - 2:12pm It wasn't even our normal…

It wasn't even our normal game plan - we normally play very aggressively and blitz.  I barely saw any of that.

I mean, we were getting killed in coverage - why not at least blitz 2 and 3 guys to give yourself a chance?  Normally you don't want to give up big plays but it was happening anyway.

And how was our top 3 DLine getting no pressure against what was a $hitty OLine all season.  The whole thing is just baffling - it's like the whole season was just a big setup for Michigan to get kicked in the balls for Saturday.

11/26/2018 - 2:05pm Saturday was also a 1 out of…

Saturday was also a 1 out of 10 game.  Not that we lost, but the way it happened.

I will say that I am very disappointed by the approach taken by our coaches on both offense and defense.  No f&cking idea where our pass rush and all of the new plays we developed throughout the season went.

11/26/2018 - 11:08am Both are being too dogmatic…

Both are being too dogmatic here.  There are no firm rules here, circumstances change throughout the season.  If we played Nebraska in November, we weren't going to win 56-10, maybe 42-28.

Wisconsin with Hornibrook probably goes 9-3 instead of 7-5; Michigan State probably is a 7-5 team.  You have to look at each situation individually.

11/26/2018 - 11:03am I think this is fair point. …

I think this is fair point.  Michigan was headed for a catastrophic 2015 and beyond and Harbaugh has made us a top 10ish program - and hopefully a top 5 program in the next two years.

OSU was clearly the better team on Saturday - the lopsided outcome of the game was a scenario where Urban rolled a 6 and Jim rolled a 1 but that doesn't change the fact that OSU was ready to coach and play that game and we weren't.

If that punt doesn't get blocked and/or Gentry doesn't drop the long 3rd down, maybe the final score ends up 48-30 or something like that but we weren't going to win the game.

11/21/2018 - 1:14pm That reminds of a B grade…

That reminds of a B grade formula Action movie where the bad guys capture the good guy and go on to lay out their evil plans in great detail.  Minutes later, the good guy unexpectedly escapes and goes on to ruin the evil plan.

My point is that your question is as dumb as the thousand movies following the formula above.  Meyer isn't going to hand this kid a playsheet with an explanation of when and how they plan to run those plays.

Ojabo is an SDE, don’t see any reason for Harrison to impact him.

11/20/2018 - 11:57am Pretty sure he was being…

Pretty sure he was being sarcastic.  If not, then you are correct.

11/19/2018 - 5:29pm Ok - you got me there. …

Ok - you got me there.  Still, close enough for govt work

11/19/2018 - 4:42pm Brown and Dobbs are both 5*…

Brown and Dobbs are both 5* players in-state at a position of need.  Can someone tell me where we stand with them?  /ducks but gets hit anyway.


On a serious note, Brown not getting enough love was never a thing.  Kid lives on the shore of Lake Michigan and is life long Wisconsin fan.  Wisconsin has pumped out numerous pros on the OL and at OT in particular - so it was a completely rational decision

Michigan did nothing wrong there, kid wanted to go to Wisconsin and so he is going there.  Best of luck to him except when he is playing Michigan.

11/18/2018 - 11:59pm There is no downside here-…

There is no downside here- he will be able to improve recruiting and maybe win 6-7 games in 2 years.  

He will be a hero for making KU football fun in Sept / Oct - nobody cares about November since basketball season starts.

11/14/2018 - 2:20pm There is a Dobbs kid who is…

There is a Dobbs kid who is a 5* OL, do we have a shot with him?

/ducks...

11/08/2018 - 4:34pm Why would anyone take that…

Why would anyone take that job?  The guy is a fantastic OL coach and was an ok but not great OC with a talented OSU offense. -

So the choices are that he can stay at Michigan for the next 5-10 years as the OL Coach / Running Game coordinator and get paid a ton of $$$ (more than Kansas can pay its HC).

Or he can go start a rebuild at Kansas and be out of a job in 2-3 years.  And not even be able to focus on what he is best at - coaching the OL.

If his life goal is to be the HC at a basketball school, then he should go for it.  Otherwise, he would be crazy to take it.

11/08/2018 - 4:30pm You guys have it all wrong,…

You guys have it all wrong, I am on a conference call with Bluey, Albatross and the rest of the Starz Mafia and they are telling me that the 2016 recruiting class sucked because half of the guys on that list are 3 stars.

11/07/2018 - 12:30pm Maybe he was talking to…

Maybe he was talking to Mineral King and just assumed it was Shea

I think MSU can win with no "free" points.

11/05/2018 - 10:56am Maybe?  But I thought he was…

Maybe?  But I thought he was more of a 3T / NG type and Zach is like the opposite of that - so not sure why a Zach Harrison silent commit would impact Denver.

Maybe a George Karlaftis silent commit? - hahaha, that would make sense though

11/05/2018 - 10:48am Shocking that a random board…

Shocking that a random board poster would turn on him.  The pro-OSU pundits have not turned on him as of yet; however, they are saying that OSU has enough young talent to survive until the 2020 class can come to the rescue.

Apparently they feel there is a lot of DLine talent in 2020.

11/05/2018 - 10:46am It was Billy Price, not Joey…

It was Billy Price, not Joey Bosa.  Not sure why people on the board want so badly to change this to Joey Bosa (not picking on you - I have seen this several times).

And even the Michigan guys said it got blown out of proportion.  Don't forget he was watching a Brady Hoke era OLine.

11/05/2018 - 8:22am For the MGoReaders under 20,…

For the MGoReaders under 20, they haven’t been there before - or at least don’t remember.

for those of us with some grey hairs, we can act that way.

Hey Gerald, I was in Ann Arbor for the game last weekend and checked our your presidential library - good stuff.

Unacceptable Seth - no rest for the weary!  

Kidding - accept the comments as a complement of how much everyone enjoys the podcasts!

Everybody sees what Kirby Smart is doing with the best talent that money can buy - why wouldn’t Pruitt replicate that model?

10/28/2018 - 7:52pm Is that the new Bluey…

Is freelion the new Bluey account?  

Nothing sadder than a moron sh!tting on teenagers.  I wouldn’t bother responding next time- you just encourage them.

half of them would transfer when they didn't win the starting job within 2 years.  Not criticizing, just saying...

Rosanne died - I saw it on TV (actually I didn't but I heard they wrote her off).

10/26/2018 - 9:52am Commonwealth folks use …

Commonwealth folks use "homely" in a positive manner - means comfortable.  A homely girl in South Africa is the pretty "girl next door" type not someone who is plain looking or worse.

Maybe Eric has Commonwealth ties :)

10/25/2018 - 3:18pm They are not mutually…

They are not mutually exclusive and I would argue the former caused the latter.

10/24/2018 - 8:40pm That wasn’t bad.

That wasn’t bad.

Sorry man, I must have you confused with someone else.  I’ll stop now.

Topeka Community College is getting the death penalty for this.

10/24/2018 - 1:27pm You definitely shit on Jeff…

You definitely shit on Jeff George Jr. which I admit is not as bad as shitting on teenagers.  If you are not part of the starz mafia - then I apologize that your nearly constant negativity about the program made me think that you were part of that group.

Btw/ I keep going to the well on JGJ because that was literally the post where this website bottomed out.  This ridiculous fanbase literally went into hysteria over a f&cking PWO spot.  I have cut my posting by 90% because it made me feel dirty even being part of the board.

10/24/2018 - 1:12pm You are correct.  And I am…

You are correct.  And I am sure that Dantonio and Chryst and Canada would have really appreciated the heads up that Gary was not playing.

Do you really think Harbaugh (or Gary for that matter) want to tip off our opponents?  What a moran!

10/24/2018 - 1:07pm While you don't have to be…

While you don't have to be excited and comment on new recruit "Hello" posts.  Any supposed fan who actively shits on a new recruit is an asshole. 

You are literally shitting on a teenager on what is supposed to be one of the best days of their life when you know that he and his family are 99% guaranteed to read it.  It is the equivalent of going up to a bride on her wedding day and telling her that she looks like shit.

By the way, we are the only fan base that shits on recruits en masse.  I have ready equivalent "Hello" posts for 3 stars on OSU, MSU, Georgia and Iowa boards and have never seen more than maybe 1 person question if that players' commitment should have been accepted.  It was an OSU poster for one of their 3 stars this year and the Eleven Warriors mods blanked it out although you could still read it.

10/24/2018 - 10:08am You are more than happy to…

You are more than happy to jump onto the pile when something negative happens or you don't think a recruit is good enough but are the #1 cheerleader during the good times.  That is a lot to be proud of.

When we are in the CFP (hopefully this year) and win a championship or two, you will be crowing about how you were always a loyal supporter of the team.  There are about 20 folks like you on the board - I would be embarrassed to support the team now if I was in that group.

Edit - I did like your edit which tells me something when you can admit that you may have gotten something wrong.  So I give you props for that.

10/24/2018 - 10:01am Did she start crying that…

Did she start crying that Harbaugh offered Jeff George Jr. a PWO spot?  I must have missed that.

I do remember when you made a fool of yourself back then like you are doing now.
