Wikipedia already has Turner working for Michigan. Looks like a great hire

12/15/2017 - 11:08am I agree

The McCaffrey hype train seems a bit premature. There's plenty of talent above him on the roster and he is somewhat of a developmental prospect. 

This time next year, I might be signing a different tune

12/15/2017 - 11:02am I believe that point was

I believe the point was that if Milton starts, then that would imply that he had fixed or mitigated his issues throwing the ball accurately. Otherwise, he would not start (hopefully). 

With the assumption that Milton polishes his throwing, then he could be considered a "generational talent"

and even with these concerns. What a great problem to have

12/08/2017 - 1:41am Somewhat

I don't think Pep and Harbaugh will have an issue. Pep came in talking about passing spread sets and Harbaugh has shown himself to be nothing if not adaptable over his career.

Drevno on the other hand... who knows.

I'm more worried about getting a WR coach to continue coaching up our young talent.

Black, DPJ, Van Jefferson, Gentry, with an inline Mckeon and Evans coming out of the backfield. Give a man a little time and there will be yards. Lots of 'em.

10/14/2017 - 4:14pm No matter what

the team should wait until after PSU to make a move. First start at a Happy Valley night game whiteout against T5 team... PTSD city.

09/27/2017 - 1:46pm If there is one naming mistake

If there is one understandable mistake to make with college coaches names (other than Mike Dantonio/Mark D'Antonio) it's Rick Pitino and Bobby Petrino. Same school, same shit, and very similar last names. 

To the substantive point at hand - U of L does seem more than complicit in the fuckery. It might not be just a shitty person problem here.

08/11/2017 - 12:17am Wait a sec

I thought he was a silent commit!?!?!

07/21/2017 - 1:37pm I believe

I believe that he does not have his undergrad, and so he is not pursuing a graduate degree. And that the undergraduate degree is a requirement for his dream position.

Not to nitpick, but this understanding may change your advice to OP.

07/18/2017 - 8:32pm Seconded

I really appreciate these posts and also encourage you to continue this righteous mission of grappling awareness. 

07/12/2017 - 4:07pm Easy

Wins and championships. Until Michigan slays the ruby and popoise dragon and makes some major plays in January, (somehow it slipped through the cracks that OSU is no longer "Scarlet and Grey") kids will continue to eschew AA for Ohio and other programs that present a "sexier" profile. In Harbaugh we trust. 

07/10/2017 - 12:10pm Wonder if

the QB and DL love is a coincidence, the fact that they are more "glory" positions, or is it just the nature of the B1G for these position groups to stand out

07/05/2017 - 10:52am We all forgot something

06/29/2017 - 2:32pm First time

The good guys got the #1 player in MI since Deshawn Sims in '06!

06/23/2017 - 8:14pm Weight is a weird thing

Sure we get caught up in numbers. These days it seems like if you aren't 300+ on the o line or interior d line then you are playing at a percieved disadvantage. I don't think that 5 pounds, of who knows what kind of weight, is going to drastically shift the ability for a player to perform. Perhaps five less pounds of fat would allow for a player to play with more quickness and give him more endurance so that there is a net gain over the lack of caulk weight (best way I could figure to describe gap plugging). This is especially true for true freshmen.

it would be a different story if he was to get at/below 275 though. Then caulk weight would definetly be worth the quickness and endurance.

those are northern european kids at a teen nightclub wearing copious amounts of bronzer. Look at the other people in the bacjground

05/25/2017 - 2:32am It's an impressive piece

But we already have a RB coach, albeit with limited experience

12/29/2016 - 1:40am Text Messages

The majotiy of those texts are probably from group messages. Those things can get dozens of texts in the blink of an eye. I would not be surprised if LLT had a number of group messages that he hasn't checked in, what the kids call, a hot minute.

This should become a thing

11/30/2016 - 11:53pm Had A Similar Thought

The parallels to Strib are plain to see. Hopefully the 20lbs that BSJ has on Strib (as a recruit) will mitigate that concern.

11/30/2016 - 11:49pm Wishful Navel Gazing

I'm sure OP knows that this will not happen in the foreseeable future for monetary and nostalgic (read: college football "tradition") reasons. But this format does seem like an ideal, albiet unrealistic, solution to the problem. 

Personally, I would like to see ND in a conference. That'll give 'em a chance to finally win a conference championship. Fuck them and their independent bullshit.

A side point about DPJ. It is always essential to keep the best players in MI home. There should always be the preconceived notion that the the best players in MI go to MI

What would be a better way to do the CFB rankings? It seems ridiculous that some programs are ranked so highly throughout the season due to a combination of preseason bias and an easy schedule

09/27/2016 - 6:01pm New Recruits

Really excited to see what new recruits come onto Michigan's board as the high school season continues to progress. Hopefully they can uncover another (or maybe more!) Hudson over the coming months.

09/26/2016 - 2:28pm This was fun. Good for these

This was fun. Good for these kids. While I can understand how this might leave a bad taste in some people's mouths, the tech knowledge and creativity used in creating this should be appreciated. Having young people that can create should always be praised. And yeah it sucks - he's in high school. Hopefully he keeps up this type of interest so he has skills when football is over for him.

09/25/2016 - 11:40pm Relation of good seasons to sweet sweet commitment

We all know that one of the most important aspects of recruiting is on the field performance. We all know that Michigan has been playing pretty well so far this year. I understand that there haven't been too many officials because of the lack of exciting opponents and that commitments are more likely to happen when these kids are on campus. Furthermore, it is clear that many of the kids who are high on M's board right now are the "decide on signing day or at the All Star Game" type of recruit - not complaining because this is a great problem to have. What I am concerned about is the lack of ballz. Those sweet sweet ballz. It seems like it has been around a month since anyone put a crystal ball in for any of the kids that mich is going for. Is it that we a) have reached a critical mass with these recruits and that the ones whose interest would be reported on have already recieved said ball, b) we're being punished for a lack of respeck by the Oversoul, c) Michigan is getting outrecruited, or d) the CFB recruiniks are prejudiced against Michigan and their success and will not report the benefits that M has justly reaped from their victories in the form of curried favor from 17 and 18 year olds. Feel free to make your own e. 

05/27/2016 - 7:23pm Cambodian Wolverines

You meet Wolverines everywhere. I was at a bar in Cambodia with a Michigan alum shirt on and then was approached by someone who had graduated a few years back. We talked about O'Korn, Harbaugh, and general optimism. Then we had a few beers. M is a truly global brand. Go Blue Forever.

02/23/2014 - 9:57pm Interesting factoid

Michigan is the only team in the B1G that has a better conf. winning percentage than overall season winning percentage. Really shows how much this team has grown and what a tough non-conference schedule that UM had.

when is he going to tell us that someone is coming?

12/11/2013 - 4:26pm I'm curious

how DG will look in the bowl game. With him having time to heal and Borges having time to develop a, hopefully, effective game plan this is the perfect time for Mich to put on an offensive showcase. 

Looking forward to the Copper Bowl.

I will not allow such corny jokes to be made about poo. #fireborges

10/09/2013 - 9:02pm Guys think about the players.

They should play an entire season internationally. It'll be their study abroad program.

10/08/2013 - 8:05pm There're different ways

to define the word talent. Some find it be more akin to "quality" and some to "natural ability/potential." I believe that is where you two are disagreeing, with no joke believing the former deffintion.

09/25/2013 - 12:54am Am I illiterate?

Because I do not see Butterfields name among those mentioned

09/23/2013 - 7:31pm As someone currently in school

it seems pretty demeaning to have non students tell me how I, and my fellow scholastic aspirants, should feel about this issue. It seems as though the only way some people on this thread and in the AD will view us is as stupid kids who they can tell what to do. It is my understanding, and some may call this naive, that a institution of higher learning's primary purpose is to serve the student body.

To me it all translates as grouchy if-you're-not-going-to-be-a-good-garden-gnome-gtfo type of talk. I appreciate the numbers but the mgocommunity routinely complains about SEC oversigning but yet over selling tickets gets a pass?

This is a legit problem for the AD, but there need to be solutions that work with the students instead of against them or around them.

09/12/2013 - 2:32pm It would be interesting

to track how teams/conferences do compared to the spread to see who was the most overrated teams/conferences.
