"I'll take them at their word." You've convinced me that OSU fans are as delusional as the Mgoblog posters who have been saying that Harbaugh can't recruit and doesn't know what he's doing. If they are right doesn't that reinforce the point that he should have been able to figure it out earlier and transfer before the 4th game of his 4th year? And please explain to me how he's the 6th all time leader in receptions if the OC is so bad. You can't have it both ways.

09/24/2018 - 6:04pm Their OC/QB coach has been…

Their OC/QB coach has been there since 2013. If that was the problem you would think he would have figured it out before the 4th game of the 4th year he spent in Stillwater. (FWIW, Gundy has been the HC since 2005).

I think that abandoning your team in the middle of the season is contemptible.

09/24/2018 - 5:10pm He's the number 4 receiver…

He's the number 4 receiver on their team this year and is leaving because he wants more attention. He would be unhappy at UM because he would be behind at least 3 other receivers. (Or maybe you think he would be ahead of DPJ, Black or Collins?) I would absolutely play Martin and Bell ahead of him. As freshmen they will be contributing to the team in 2020 and are still developing.

Let's summarize: He plays at a position where he isn't needed. M's depth issues at WR are possibly for 2020 and later. Certainly not for next year. He is unhappy at OSU because he's the 4th WR. At UM he would be the 4th WR, at best. He is unfamiliar with our system and our QBs. If he was given significant snaps for the one year he would be at UM it would impede the development of the younger WRs who will be in Ann Arbor in 2020 and 2021. He has an attitude problem and abandoned his team in the middle of the season.

If you really think that bringing him in would be a good use of a scholarship we will just have to disagree.

09/24/2018 - 3:51pm How would he "be a nice add?…

How would he "be a nice add?" He would sit on the bench behind DPJ, Collins, Black and Bell. At slot he would be behind Martin and probably Schoenle. That would be a horrible waste of a scholarship.

Really. Maybe he can join Tristan Gebbia at Oregon State.

I felt pretty good about our QBs at the end of 2010, before the bowl game.

I noticed Tyriq Thompson is on there for disciplinary reasons. That might make WD feel better, if he is actually held out.

Look up. Do you see the line that has MGOBLOG on the left, then some links for more info (e.g. About, Contact) and then a window with an image of a magnifying glass? Type Devontae Dobbs into that window on the right. Hit enter or click on the image it will take you to this

The 4th article listed is the one linked above.

But, but . . . there are no crystal balls for him. He'll never go to Michigan.

09/18/2018 - 7:43pm Frey has a great reputation…

Frey has a great reputation because he has gotten results at UM under RR and at Indiana where he was cranking out AAs like Dan Feeney and Jason Spriggs.

When he started out with RR our OL had been a mess for a couple of years. The only starter left (after Boren transferred) was Schilling. Undersized red-shirt freshman Dave Molk was also on the roster. They recruited and developed Omameh, Barnum and Lewan. Frey turned all those guys into at least all conference players. They also recruited Jake Fisher who decommitted after RR was fired.

Against his proven record it's hard to blame Frey for last year where 2 coaches were splitting OL responsibility. It should also be noted that he gets credit for recruiting Jalen Mayfield, a guy many Mgousers want to start as a true freshman. He has a great reputation because he has earned it.

Here's an article about the FSU OL. It says that they're playing a 3rd string LT and all 3 have really been guards.

You're right that he's right. We have seen it specifically with the requirements that male and female athletes get the same amount of meal money.

The state legislature would kick their ass if UW tried to drop from the top division.

Because Crystal Balls determine where a recruit is going to commit.

Yes, he did. Broken QBs didn't get the ball to him.

Policies are also put in place to avoid civil rights lawsuits. If the policy isn't enforced when the violator is black (e.g. Tyriq Thompson - he's a legacy!) but is enforced against another student who isn't black it presents a prima facie case of racial discrimination. If the policy is a bad policy change it, but don't enforce it arbitrarily.

Did Webb throw in a qualifier referring to safety? Because Peppers and Gary are pretty impressive athletes.

I wish there had been something on Stueber. His fall injury really set him back.

FWIW, the coaches said Runyan was penciled in for sure before they said JBB would be a starter. Usually, you want your better OT protecting the blindside. I think JBB is closer to being passed than Runyan. Also, it's preferable to have guys get reps at the position they will be playing.

Give credit to both. It was a mistake - like scheduling Alabama in 2012.

Shea is doing some first rate trolling of Mgoblog.

I'm upset that ND was our first game. The OL, especially, needed a game to get their feet under them.

Where did you go to law school? All schools have the right to determine who is allowed to attend. When a public school deprives an admitted student of his property interest in remaining in school it must follow due process in doing so.

09/10/2018 - 8:31pm "I'm not sure that due…

"I'm not sure that due process in terms of university standing has been established." UM is a public institution. It is black letter law that they are required to provide Due Process when they act to deprive a student of a property interest.

An individual who is falsely accused of sexual misconduct is a victim. This ruling is good for them.

09/10/2018 - 5:12pm How is St. Juste a legacy?…

How is St. Juste a legacy? That's the claim the earlier poster was making, that Patterson only got an offer because he's a legacy. Harbaugh offers a lot of guys who aren't highly rated at the time. (St. Juste's rating sky rocketed after his offer). I can give you a lot of examples of that, e.g., Ron Bell, Joey Vasquez, St. Juste is just the one I could think of off the top of my head who had zero P5 offers.

09/10/2018 - 2:21am How many P5 offers did St…

How many P5 offers did St. Juste have? Harbaugh's not afraid to offer someone he thinks is good just because others have missed.

09/09/2018 - 11:04pm I know that we heard so much…

I know that we heard so much BS during spring and August that everything has to be taken with a grain of salt but the coaches consistently said Bredeson and Ruiz were the 2 guys who were always set. Onwenu and Spanellis supposedly had a tight competition. It seems unlikely that Spanelllis will move to the outside.

You don't think JBB is the one who is going to be the first out?

It should be clear by now that Harbaugh says a lot of things that are absolutely untrue in order to motivate the players.

You really think the coaches need to get the players fired up for ND? We'll just have to agree to disagree.

They are both hybrid LB/S positions. Viper emphasizes the LB aspects while the Wolf is more focused on S duties. Both Don Dufek and Randy Logan were named AA as a safety. Peppers was named AA as a LB.

This is a dumb comment. Warinner has a good record as an OL coach. A bad start to this year doesn't change that.

If your chronology is correct, is it possible that he was scared off by the possibility of Harris committing to UM? I'm not saying he was, just thinking that there is as much evidence for one as for the other.

So, if Lawrence Academy plays a weak schedule and has little to no coaching, why did AJ pick there to attend private school?

"five guys executing at 80% gets it right 33% of the time." Runyan didn't say the 3 interior guys were performing at that level.
