Damn - that’s some production! Thanks for looking into it.

The most annoying aspect of the constant complaining about not-4/5-star recruits is the fact we haven’t seen them on the field yet. 

If you are a fan you must trust they’re getting guys they can mold into their system.

I believe he missed spring camp with an injury, correct?

Must not have been able to bounce back.

Simply a long-time lurker who took the plunge.

Anyways I agree with the fact that Shelley is in a very tight spot. However, that doesn't mean she informed Urban. I fully believe she did. 

I'm simply looking through a lens of an athletic department that might find any possible angle to keep their golden goose.

While I'm sure they enjoy beating their rivals, the CFP appearances and B1G titles are probably pretty important too.

That being said - hell no I wouldn't trade. Nervous birds and all...

Is that the important issue right now?

08/01/2018 - 1:37pm Which will hurt him in the…

Which will hurt him in the court of public opinion.

But if he goes the route I suggest it wouldn't be too difficult to throw Lindsey under the same bus Shelley's under, right? If the powers that be would buy my theory on his own wife, what's another liar to them?

There's an avenue open that Mrs Meyers did not inform Urban. He'll take it and he will walk.

Can confirm - ate food. Am dead now.

More importantly it seems, they got his dad here.

That's definitely one of the more concerning issues with the narrative the media is fixated on. Players embrace quirkiness, etc. Parents are more likely to furrow a brow and encourage their son to look elsewhere.

Win and it fixes itself.

Based on how he views Ole Miss, it's very encouraging that he's here. Clearly views Michigan as his best chance for success. 

Hungry.

Discuss.

I'll start - Shea appears to have a great outlook on his career and has plenty to prove to himself. Love the nugget about Winovich watching him practice.

Isaiah Hole did a mailbag this morning praising JKP so he seems to be solidly in the mix still.

07/30/2018 - 10:14am And that will tell us just…

And that will tell us just as much about Harbaugh moving forward.

From Patterson to Milton offensive scheme could get a great breath of fresh air over the next couple of seasons.

Can't start a new thread so here's this:

Encouraging perspective from Patterson

07/30/2018 - 9:27am I seem to remember his…

I seem to remember his senior year tape was significantly less electric than this junior year that earned the 5*.

07/27/2018 - 3:03pm That's a great point - hadn…

That's a great point - hadn't thought of it (despite visiting last November!)

Still, I can't help but think being on a college campus for a renewed rivalry wouldn't be the best option, everything else being equal. It sounds like people are fairly divided on the ratings debate.

07/27/2018 - 1:32pm At the same time, the space…

At the same time, the space to house the festivities certainly favors South Bend. Smack-dab in the middle of the city is not ideal for a number of reasons.

07/26/2018 - 4:34pm Having Ace's ballz is a…

Having Ace's ballz is a significant development.

It's also unavoidable during #CROOTIN season.

07/26/2018 - 8:51am Meh, he's always had a…

Meh, he's always had a certain approach with the media. He doesn't buy into the soundbite nature of today's media.

He still beams on Attack Each Day. He loves talking about his guys and his program in the right setting.

07/26/2018 - 8:48am Sounded like Winovich…

Sounded like Winovich painted it as an improving work in progress.

If they're going to get better, they're gonna do so against the best* D Line in the nation.

Yeah I get it. Plus every single player mentioned is on an island. Outside of a few receivers and Hornibrook relying on each other, I know I can't get caught up in it.

It's going to be a great season.

Both of the 2018 editions thus far sure make you feel pessimistic...

Karan's added beef should get him closer to that desired combo.

Yep - And by that logic the supposed rising tide of the OL will be great for all of our RB ships. 

Gotta imagine Evans will be utilized more if things get spread out as rumored by Chase.

So the Tru Wilson hype a few weeks back was due to lack of options, not increased ability?

NTTAWWT doesn't clear you of homophobia in 2018... Please leave.

07/25/2018 - 10:05am LOL sweet jesus.

Certainly…

LOL sweet jesus.

Certainly wasn't two botched hires and a tone deaf AD who cause a decade of issues. It was the college kid with a clever quip his senior year.

07/25/2018 - 10:01am Second half, just a FG and a…

Second half, just a FG and a TD in garbage time. 

Ah yes - "defeated with dignity"

07/25/2018 - 9:52am And they used this strategy…

And they used this strategy for this specific recruit, not as an overall plan. Too many people in this thread are taking the quote far too literally.

07/24/2018 - 6:48pm Except Michigan’s rival and…

Except Michigan’s rival and gatekeeper to the B1G Championship game has been a 5* destination and talent developer for years already.

I really hope the staff can coach ‘em up quick. They absolutely will get there, but it’s a few years out still.

That being said I’m confident they can win the B1G this year regardless of the recruiting gap at the moment.

07/24/2018 - 6:43pm Agreed, but 20lbs would suit…

Agreed, but 20lbs would suit him nicely!

There's 1 other TE in the '18 class?

Kickoffs are gonna suck this season.

07/23/2018 - 2:45pm "Shea Patterson played…

"Shea Patterson played really well in spring. Peters was also improved this spring. McCaffrey made the most improvement of any QB on our roster. Milton did very well, and has a bright future."

And backs that up with an additional 'fuck you' to the Spartan reporter. Love it.

I'm indifferent on national injury/availability lists but the fact that the conversation is now happening with gamblers in mind is ridiculous.

07/23/2018 - 10:25am Given the nature of mobile…

Given the nature of mobile QBs in the East, what are Coaches Brown and Partridge doing to address the failures in QB spying and over-pursuit last season?

07/23/2018 - 10:10am Yep - This is one of my hot…

Yep - This is one of my hot takes for 2018. Ben Herbert will be a catalyst for this team.

07/23/2018 - 10:00am So if we do put it all on…

So if we do put it all on the skipper, he fired his S&C coach and brought in someone of high pedigree as well as secured the transfer of one an electric and experienced QB.

Seems like a solid gameplan to this layman. 

07/22/2018 - 4:31pm ‘15 MSU - Once-in-a-lifetime…

‘15 MSU - Once-in-a-lifetime fluke

’16 OSU - A literal game of inches against one of the best teams in the nation (with a hurt QB)

’17 FSU - Eh...

’17 MSU/‘17 OSU - Unreliable QB play

The other element in 2017 seemed to be the defense running out of gas in the 4th. While obviously the offense not being able to stay on the field was the main reason, I’m excited to see how they hold up with new S&C programming - has to get better right?

07/22/2018 - 4:16pm It looks to me to be classic…

It looks to me to be classic Michigan fan bait. I’m sure there are plenty of homers with more disposable income than me taking those odds at the moment.

07/20/2018 - 7:18pm (competition talent level**)

(competition talent level**)

07/20/2018 - 7:17pm No, just suggesting that…

No, just suggesting that GRCC’s schedule is generally less forgiving than other West Michigan teams in their division. 

Let’s acknowledge that any team that can win it all back-to-back face tough teams in November. Week in and week out? Nope, but that doesn’t mean they didn’t see talent. West Catholic is tough as well as Unity Christian. As for public schools, he faced (and beat) EGR and an 8-3 Allendale (twice).

I certainly agree it’s not metro Detroit. That doesn’t mean he had a cakewalk of a career. Regardless, the staff had done a great job of looking past any talent level when grading the individual.

So let’s play the hypothetical - how does Mayfield look against Detroit or top division competition?

07/20/2018 - 6:57pm That was a fun game that, as…

That was a fun game that, as memory serves, provided zero fuel to a Barkley-shaped fire the following season...

Can’t wait for M to run it up again this year.

07/20/2018 - 6:39pm I should clarify...

In…

I should clarify...

In addition to playoff talent, Mayfield has also had talented out of conference opponents and Allendale (who I trust can find bigger DE than what you claim).

07/20/2018 - 6:30pm GRCC also routinely plays…

GRCC also routinely plays the best teams in the state... this isn’t a great take.

So Frey develops when Warriner recruits?
