07/03/2018 - 12:07pm I agree with a lot of what…

I agree with a lot of what you are saying, but there are so many factors when it comes to a football season and how a team finishes, so to only measure this season by wins and losses is probably going to get you a good kick in the balls. I for one have not been pointing to this year being the year for the last few years. 2016 was the one year I thought that would be possible, but even then you had Speight starting for the first time, so even then my expectations where a little lower. I don't know how anyone could look at the turnover from 2016 to 2017 and think that team had a legitimate shot at winning a big ten title but that is just me. 

As for this season, I think the season needs to be measured on if there is substantial improvement at our key positions that have been lacking for some time, or just last year. It really doesn't need to be stated, but the OL needs to show significant improvement, and only time will tell if Warriner is the guy to make that happen. WR needs to see a major improvement, because as much as we like to blame the QB spot for last year, a lot of times the WRs had a hard time creating separation. Both of these issues have been addressed by JH in the off season and we will see if they pay off. I do believe that whether it be Shea, DM, or Peters in the lineup, you will see a QB who has been prepared and will be better equipped to succeed.

All of these can show tremendous improvement, but at the end of the day, Michigan still has 3  tough road environments, and 2 tough opponents at home. Throw in a rejuvenated Nebraska squad that will be motivated and a potential tough road game with Northwestern (you just never know about them) it is very possible and probable to see 3, maybe even 4 losses with an improved team. 

 

06/29/2018 - 2:09pm I don't really understand…

I don't really understand why this has turned into such a big deal (not necessarily here). If Michigan did back off it is one of two things: 1. They really were not that interested after evaluating him further. 2. He simply fell through the cracks during the Drevno saga. Either way, he went where he is most comfortable and why people are getting so bent out of shape about what he said confuses me.

I am trying to figure out how to upvote/downvote. Are others still not seeing this or am I just stupid? 

 

Also cannot seem to find a place to edit my profile, again, maybe I am just missing it.

05/24/2018 - 2:21pm If he was ever going to leave

If he was ever going to leave MSU for another Job this would be the time. Get out of MSU on your own terms, and get some NBA money for a few years before retirement. The Magic have very little expectations. I don't see him leaving, but considering what has happened the last two years for him and his teams, it would be a very appealing offer if I were him. Florida over the winter and he can walk away from any lingering issues at MSU.

05/23/2018 - 10:47am Unpopular opinion, but I

Unpopular opinion, but I think MSU would have won 7 games in 2016 if Lewerke would have played. Dantonio was incredibly stupid to keep trotting O'connor out there. You could see the difference that Lewerke made in short time against Michigan until he got hurt.

It seems that most of the fanbase gets their talking points from the media and rival fanbases.

I love the all whites as well. My only problem with the uni's as they are now is having the stupid BIG logo on the front. I would love for Michigan to go back to the plain swoosh on the chest and nothing else.

I was hoping for the Gardy hire after Leyland was gone. He always seemed to lift Minnesota to another level than what they had.

The amount of false starts by the ole miss O line is staggering. 

05/10/2018 - 12:51pm We can just agree to disagree

We can just agree to disagree on the quarterback front as well as the recruiting success so far. Every year, every program misses on some of their biggest targets. Peters played how you would expect a quarterback to play in their first time. He managed the games well and had one poor game against South Carolina. 

One point that we can find common ground on is that coaches in a program have a bigger impact on recruiting than the satellite camps would have. In my original response to the OP about it having some effect, I was in no way saying that it is more important than the recruiting that the coaches do on a day to day basis. 

05/10/2018 - 11:03am How do you know that Speight

How do you know that Speight is better than any of the QB's that Harbaugh has recruited? or are you just good at regurgitating what rival fan bases spew out? Harbaugh's first QB recruit from a full cycle was Peters who has played in 5 games, which to me is a little premature to say Speight is clearly better. 

I actually don't think that any of the coaching decisions had anything to do with recruiting and everything to do with coaching what they were brought here to coach. While recruiting is part of what every college coach does, I think Harbaugh has been pretty happy with the recruiting that he has done thus far and his main recruiter is Partridge anyway, not Warriner and not McElwain.

05/10/2018 - 9:17am "hoke left harbaugh with a

"hoke left harbaugh with a team that provided him with his best season" while for the most part this is true, I think you are over looking one position, which is also the most important. Hoke left Harbaugh with Speight, Morris, and Malzone. God only knows what the 2015 season would have looked like with Speight or Morris under center. And lets not pretend that hoke left harbaugh with all polished players at the other positions. 

 

As to the original question, I am sure that there is some impact that the lack of camps is and will have on recruiting but I would be hisitant to say that it is a major one. If you can't get in front of players, it can be difficult to recruit them, and it was clearly an advantage that Harbaugh had because the other coaches obviously did not want to put in the time to do something similar.  

05/04/2018 - 12:52pm Could it simply be that True

Could it simply be that True Freshman QB's are actually getting a chance to play now and thus having "better success"? How many true freshman QB's even had an opportunity 30 years ago? That is a genuine question for those who may know more on the subject than me.

05/02/2018 - 4:56pm The NFL game is much

The NFL game is much different than college. While QB is still the most important position on the field, they can't completely take over the game in the same way. That is why you see so many great college QB's flame out in the NFL. Matthew Stafford has been great in spite of an organization who has a revolving door of coaches and a history of ineptitude when assembling a team.

That is because Lebron is an arrogant prick. Great player, bigger douchebag.

Should have just called it nothing because there was certainly a whole lot more nothing than all!

04/26/2018 - 9:36am My only concern is watching

My only concern is watching some of the highlights from last year. They have a lot of quick hitter throws that could neutralize Michigan's front 7. With an offensive style that ND runs, it only takes a missed tackle from a corner or safety and they are in the redzone or the endzone. I would imagine that ND will try to run some tunnel screens against Michigan as well, which seemed to give them fits. I trust Don Brown, but I am not sure there will be enough time to get to Wimbush.

04/17/2018 - 11:11am I would be good with a

I would be good with a compromise, which is why I mentioned that at a minimum it should be modified. I am a younger guy (27), and it probably has to do with the fact that I am a huge baseball fan, but I have always been a traditionalist with sports. I don't think that the game would really suffer all that much if we were to eliminate replay, but I do like th idea of capping the maximum time of replay. 

I would also like to see the replay time used towards a TV timeout. 

04/17/2018 - 11:02am Replay

This is an unpopular opinion but I would like to see replay taken away from all sports or at minimum, modified. Honestly, I still think they get the call wrong half of the time because it is not "indisputable". So we are supposed to defer to the referee's call on the field who saw it at full speed instead of making the call based on the 3 or 4 camera angles that we have in super slow motion. I just think, if you are still getting the call wrong don't have it at all, especially because some of these reviews take way too long.

I pay for PGA Tour Live and the fact that they will show featured groups on the masters app for free is awesome. I pay for the same service for the rest of the tournaments so the fact that the masters doesn't charge anything is refreshing. Tiger is going to be in the featured group too so can't complain about anything.

03/25/2018 - 7:31pm Matthews cannot ball handle,

Matthews cannot ball handle, can’t shoot outside, and has a slow first step. He should not leave, he should enjoy playing a lot on a college team and living the college lifestyle. The NBA G League would not be a step up.

For someone who played in the NBA and at an elite level, Reggie doesn’t know a whole lot about basketball.

03/19/2018 - 10:07am The Trey Burke steal on

The Trey Burke steal on appling was when the game was tied and the shot clock was turned off. Michigan State had a last shot for the win, didn't even have to worry about tying it, that is what made it so great for me. Plus you could put the nail in the coffin on the who is better debate. 

03/18/2018 - 12:39am I love the irony that Houston

I love the irony that Houston missed two free throws in a row to make that possible.

03/15/2018 - 11:12am This is exactly right. I

This is exactly right. I played at two different NAIA schools in college and we competed neck and neck with 3 different division 1 schools in my 4 years playing. Everytime we played one of those teams, we usually saw a Freshman who had less than 10 innings in college. Baseball is a strange game anyway, because you can't just overpower an inferior oppenant like you can in basketball and football.

This can't be right, I always read that Jim Harbaugh is a narcissistic douchebag.

03/02/2018 - 9:39am Come on man, I have seen

Come on man, I have seen countless times where michigan has ended up with a great look off an inbound play. I believe yesterday there were 5 seconds on the shot clock and Belien designed a play that got Duncan a wide open look for 3. The issue on this play was that MAAR picked it up, and (now I'm making an assumption here) probably forgot that Belein told them to make sure Z passes the ball in late in games so he doesn't have to shoot the free throws. Once MAAR realized what he had done and gave the ball to Z, Z didn't remember the rule, because it is so rare.

gotta hit the free throw but that is clearly a shooting foul. The officiating has been terrible all game, and the way it was called down the stretch reminds me of how regulation ended at minnesota.

his playing style is borderline unwatchable which makes it so annoying that he has been destroying michigan.

You can really tell how shitty this reffing has been when michigan has 8 fouls and iowa has only shot 2 free throws.

If I were a referee I would not blow the whistle if I saw a ball handler throw his head back like that. While not going to the ground it is essentially a flop and there are few things that bother me more in sports than flops. 

02/23/2018 - 11:26am I sell insurance currently

I sell insurance currently and it is hard because everyone seems to think that we make a ton of money off of you when in reality we hardly make anything off of a standard homeowners and auto policy. Hopefully, if you have a good agent, they are taking the time to explain what you are purchasing, because before I got into insurance, I had no idea what I was and was not covered for.
