He started for UM in 5 games in 2017. I don't think he'll have trouble finding schools that will welcome him. The question will be whether he wants to continue with football at those schools.

OP doesn't say he was hired, just that there's a lot of chatter about him interviewing and the possibility he ends up in AA.

He's got all the tools to do the job. Let's go kick ass.

Barring injury, I don't think Hinton will be in the two-deep. Jeter and Smith should rotate at NT, with Kemp and Dwumfour rotating at the other DT. I'm guessing Hinton will see the same kind of usage Hutchinson saw last season.

Lewan redshirted as a true freshman in 2009.

According to Seth's front page coverage you are correct. As you note, that goes a long way to understanding this. However, it doesn't detract from my contention that this isn't "the opportunity of a lifetime."

I almost edited my post to add this.

According to Bentley he coached in 1997.

"the opportunity of your lifetime"

You are literally saying that coaching at OSU is better than coaching at Michigan. This is especially odd if the statements that he will be a co-DC are correct. He was DC at Michigan under Hoke. The culture at your employer is also important. I don't think the OSU AD conducts itself with the same integrity as Michigan's does. People who say "it's all about the Benjamins" must have been incredibly fortunate to have never worked for a bad boss.

Leaves M for ND. Leaves M for OSU. Hmmm.

It's not a charade. It's covering your bases. Most of them won't make it because of a lack of talent others will be injured. If the NFL doesn't work out it's valuable to have a good education and a diploma from a respected school.

I didn't think this was something that should be negged.

Let's look at the article. It says: "Defensive back Julian Barnett had an uneven week that ranged from solid to concerning," What's the confusion?

He is, but you can't blame him for taking that one.

For Cornman's info: it wasn't "just anybody," it was "trusted" Mgousers, as determined by having a certain number of Mgopoints.

Prior to this year playing in a single game cost you your redshirt (although not necessarily a chance at a medical redshirt).

“I’m going to start out at guard and get comfortable there,” Rumler told MLive on Wednesday. “And once I get older, I’m going to try and make the transition to center.”

We'll see. I think Charbonnet and Smith are in the rotation immediately and may become starters. Hill should also see a lot of playing time.

Paea - the next Chase Winovich.

Really. What's his point? Those guys all suck.

01/02/2019 - 1:12pm I agree that Peters is the…

I agree that Peters is the only guy this applies to, but I think it's wrong to call him a miss. He was a victim of last year's OL but was Patterson's backup coming out of fall camp. Bad luck for him, he was injured just when he would have gotten the playing time that McCaffrey took. I think everyone, including Harbaugh, expects Peters to transfer, which explains Milton's playing time at Peters' expense. Things haven't worked out for him but Peters has good ability and will probably excel if he does transfer.

Running back too! We were supposed to get Eric Gray and he ended at Tennessee of all places.

01/01/2019 - 5:52pm Really? Whatever his flaws…

Really? Whatever his flaws may be, I have never questioned WD's love of UM. JPC is an obvious troll and a dick who constantly spews shit.

I also don't remember MK saying a lot of negative things about UM.

IIRC, they lose just 2. One is the FB.

12/31/2018 - 8:21pm Too soon.

Too soon.

I look forward to seeing what Harbaugh will do with a decent OL and a healthy second year starter at QB. Hopefully it will include making better use of the incredible WRs on the team.

12/30/2018 - 8:32pm Odd that you should pick…

Odd that you should pick 1947 as your reference. That was the year of the "Mad Magicians." It was literally one of the most innovative offensive teams of all time. They were undefeated and beat USC 49-0 in the Rose Bowl. Oh, and they were national champions.

Do you realize there's a reason Metellus was starting? Are you aware that Kinnel is graduating?

Apparently Liberty University is in that select group as well.

The article says Jedd Fisch is another of the guys being considered.

So, you're saying the recruiting analysts are just making educated guesses?

Why do you feel the need to post the same thing so many times?

12/26/2018 - 2:04pm And UMbig11 says he's…

And UMbig11 says he's injured and can't play. Officials sometimes misspeak and reporters sometimes report incorrectly.

12/26/2018 - 1:59pm I haven't seen anything…

I haven't seen anything about Florida players who will miss the game. Do you have anything on that?

12/26/2018 - 1:49pm 1. That metric will mean…

1. That metric will mean less and less as the recruiting analysts become less reliable. Guys like Velazquez, APH and Thomas may well be under rated. Even at that, the low rating is 3.5*.

2. I care more about how guys do in college than in how high they get drafted. Mike Hart (too small for the NFL) is the perfect example. I'm happy to have an unranked Glasgow. I'll happily take a Jordan Kovacs, a Roy Manning or a Patrick Omameh. Remember, the NFL makes mistakes too.

12/26/2018 - 1:21pm Speaking of OL . . . I…

Speaking of OL . . . I wonder why you said Rumler will be a center. The only speculation I had seen prior to Jimmystats: Offense was that maybe somewhere down the line Carpenter might move there if necessary. Did the coaches say something?

Thanks.

People can talk about how hard it is to pull guys from Mississippi but we haven't had a recruit from Oregon since 1990??!!

Always bitching about something. I admit I'm surprised a little bit. I thought you would whine that Akers, Dillon and Harris aren't at UM right now.

12/24/2018 - 12:02pm I was referencing what you…

I was referencing what you wrote on this blog, commenting on Brian's "Exit Aubrey Solomon:" "Well, if I had my druthers, Mike Onwenu would be playing NT already. That's an obvious fix, IMO, and I don't think Onwenu is irreplaceable at RG."

 

12/22/2018 - 11:34pm This is the critical point…

This is the critical point. Funk made guys worse. Warrinner makes them better.

12/22/2018 - 12:12pm That's what they said about…

That's what they said about Kalis. Be grateful that Warrinner is coaching the OL instead of Funk.

12/22/2018 - 12:05pm 1. Magnus wrote that he…

1. Magnus wrote that he would like to see Onwenu at NT. That's the one thing that would make sense to move Rumler into the starting OL. Coaches may decide the need at NT outweighs the need at OL with good options to step in for Onwenu.

2. Mason Cole also started as a true Freshman, IIRC.

12/22/2018 - 4:46am Why is Rumler listed as a…

Why is Rumler listed as a center? This is the first time I've seen that suggested.

12/20/2018 - 1:20pm Fuck the NFL. I hate them…

Fuck the NFL. I hate them. But I will say the idea that few M season ticket holders also have Lions tickets says anything about interest in the NFL is absurd. How many people have the disposable income to afford both? How many people have the time available to attend games on Saturday and Sunday? It's also possible that people exist who love the NFL so much that they prefer to stay home and watch multiple games on TV.

12/19/2018 - 6:17pm I'll be surprised if…

I'll be surprised if Charbonnet plays in only 4 or fewer games. If Hassan moves to defense that leaves Evans, Wilson and Turner as frontline ball carriers.

12/19/2018 - 6:02pm You're confusing correlation…

You're confusing correlation with causation. Guys become consensus 5* because a lot of individuals who are professional at evaluating talent have come to a consensus that the individual being evaluated has a lot of potential. Their evaluation is more frequently correct than incorrect so the players considered 5* players will more often than not excel. But the awarding of a 5th star isn't what makes a player good.

IIRC, Countess was supposedly concerned about the new system coming in with the coaching change.
