05/21/2018 - 9:27pm I don't think ND will be very

I don't think ND will be very good at all next year with everything they lost. I'm a self-admitted pessimist at times but I think we roll them by 20+. We may still go 10-2 or worse but we will be predicting a National Championship after the first game. I also hate ND more than OSU and MSU so that could explain the feeling.

05/14/2018 - 12:44am I’ve become a little

I’ve become a little pessimistic on recruiting but he hasn’t decommitted and he only said he would take an official visit. How does this mean he’s gone? It’s not like you get major colleges calling you and begging you to visit their school all the time. I won’t fault a kid for enjoying the process. There’s a reason he committed to UM and in the end I think he will stick with it.

05/11/2018 - 9:52pm I live in Delaware County and

I live in Delaware County and I have no idea what you are talking about. This area is very pro OSU. The word around here is the same as the recruiting boards...he’s not a lock to OSU. He LOVED his Penn State visit. It opened his eyes to what else might be out there. It’s an OSU - PSU battle with an open mind to UM. He has visited OSU over a dozen times in the last year. Loves his family and will probably stay close to home and go to OSU when all is said and done BUT it is definitely not guaranteed.

05/02/2018 - 11:00pm I don’t understand the the

I don’t understand the the thought that the game plan against OSU was successful but the QB just couldn’t execute. If your QB can’t execute the game plan, then it’s a bad game plan.

05/01/2018 - 9:39pm There’s four Big 10 teams in

There’s four Big 10 teams in the top ten (4 in the top 7 to be exact) and five in the top 25. Maybe OP meant Big Ten East teams...or maybe he said that and I read it wrong. If so, my apologies.

I don’t understand how anyone can have MSU ranked ahead of us. I’m guessing if the sportsbooks put a line on our game with them right now, we would be favored by more than a touchdown.

04/28/2018 - 7:46pm It’s not worth the argument

It’s not worth the argument because there’s nothing to argue yet. We had 11 guys drafted last year and still didn’t get the job done when OSU had the youngest team in the country. You can’t say we lost because we were young when they were in our shoes the year before and beat us. You can’t argue talent when you have the most guys picked in the NFL draft. You can’t argue that our Q.B. was hurt when theirs got hurt too and the backup came in and beat us. You have to sit back and take it with a smile because you know the difference has been the quarterback and this year we will finally have the advantage at the most important position on the field. I won’t be surprised if we not only beat them, but completely embarrass them this year.

Our defense is elite, skilled positions are elite, and if we can just get above average play from the offensive line (we now have the coach to get them there) we will be playing for a national championship next season.

04/28/2018 - 7:24pm But Hart never beat OSU. What

But Hart never beat OSU. What am I missing?

04/27/2018 - 7:15am I live in Columbus and most

I live in Columbus and most people didn’t care about the flag planting thing when it happened. Eight or nine months later, nobody cares.

04/20/2018 - 5:29pm Why was it a sad day for UM

Why was it a sad day for UM when he was fired? Because OSU beat us? The firing of Bruce was the beginning of the Cooper era. We went from the most evenly matched period of the Rivalry to one of the most dominant.

04/17/2018 - 7:41pm It would be okay if you would

It would be okay if you would have said I question if Harbaugh handled this properly but you come in blasting and calling the program a circus.

Seriously though, even if Harbaugh kicked him off the team for leaving to spend time with a dying family member (I’m not saying this is the case, just worse case) would that justify a death threat? My point is you can call the program a circus and blame Harbaugh, but there’s nothing he could’ve done in this situation that would deserve a death threat.

04/03/2018 - 6:09pm I think you say what many

I think you say what many people are thinking when it comes to recruiting, which is why there are 20 posts from people saying “oh no here comes Maizen to complain” BUT I don’t think you should do it in the kids Hello post. This is to congratulate the young man. If recruits do log on and read these, do you really want them reading the negative stuff? You can complain about recruiting, but please try not to do it in the Hello post.

04/03/2018 - 12:06am Villanova was by far the best

Villanova was by far the best team this year and they got once in a lifetime game from a bench player. There’s not another college out there that could have beaten them tonight.

There’s nothing to be embarrassed about, but I imagine there will be a lot of talk about how we got every break imaginable with our bracket and we didn’t belong. Hope I’m wrong and all the talking heads give credit where it’s due.

03/04/2018 - 8:13pm Agreed. I thought he was

Agreed. I thought he was trying to save his energy for the end but he didn’t get the one opportunity he was waiting on. There’s a reason Snyder is the best wrestler on the planet right now.
If there was another weight division we would have three grapplers crowned today.
Excited to see these two meet in the NCAA championship for the rubber match.

02/11/2018 - 8:31pm I believe they would be in

I believe they would be in different weight divisions in the Olympics. I know that’s not what you said. I’m just mentioning it. Great win.

02/08/2018 - 10:29pm Did you throw in the

Did you throw in the consistently part to avoid implicating UM? The previous two years we recruited at a high level. Were we bending the rules or is it possible that ther are only handful of recruits that require something extra?

02/07/2018 - 11:22pm Good point but I doubt they

Good point but I doubt they win the conference.

02/07/2018 - 11:20pm Agreed. Purdue wins out in

Agreed. Purdue wins out in the regular season and osu will lose at least one or two more games. Tonight was just ugly and they got the breaks at the end. 

02/07/2018 - 10:04pm Remind me how National

Remind me how National Championships, or even conference championships he won with those recruiting classes? The year they went 12 - 1, they were blown out by Oregon and the conference was terrible.

I’m not concerned though because this class was preceded by two great classes and next year could be special also.

02/07/2018 - 12:34pm And they have a PWO who is

And they have a PWO who is ranked higher than a couple of our scholarship commits. They are recruiting well, but I’m confident we have a good class that fits what we need and we will be just fine. It wasn’t what I was hoping for but since Harbaugh hasn’t shut down the program yet, he must be good with what we have.

02/06/2018 - 8:37pm We didn’t lose Friday because

We didn’t lose Friday because OSU said Partridge was leaving. If that were true he would’ve flipped back to us. He signs his LOI tomorrow. It’s not like he signed in December.

We have the best public university in the country. We arguably have the richest history in college football. We have one of the greatest coaches in football regardless of level and top of the line facilities. Unless we are signing a class of 15 or less, we shouldn’t have a class that finishes in the teens.

02/06/2018 - 8:09pm Agreed. I kept reading on

Agreed. I kept reading on here that we were in it and nobody had any idea who he was going to pick. I checked UF board and no mention of UM. Visit ND, Bama, and OSU boards and nothing about UM. I heard Wiltfong on a podcast the other day and he said he wouldn’t be surprised if NPF picked any of the finalists, then he added except for Michigan. Oh well. Hopefully he picks someone other than OSU or ND.

02/06/2018 - 3:29pm The point is OSU didn’t just

The point is OSU didn’t just call him a week ago and introduce themselves. They’ve been in the running for a long time. Most experts just underestimated his interest in OSU.

02/06/2018 - 2:59pm If it makes any better, OSU

If it makes any better, OSU has been in on NPF for a long time. He took an unofficial visit there over the summer and his family has a strong relationship with Schiano. His interest in OSU was just under estimated by experts.

02/02/2018 - 5:45pm OSU has back to back

OSU has back to back Rimington Award Winners under their new o-line coach and also led the conference in rushing yards. They have a lot to sell and the hardware to back it up. Hopefully it’s too little too late. If he doesn’t pick the good guys, I hope he picks Florida. Anyone but OSU and ND.

02/01/2018 - 12:57pm I could be wrong, but I

I could be wrong, but I believe most five stars are the four stars with great work ethic and a good attitude. That’s the reason they have risen to the top and separated themselves. They are naturally gifted, but there are plenty of guys who are gifted and it was all the hard work that made them the best of the best.

01/28/2018 - 9:58pm We know what it says without

We know what it says without the full picture, the concern is he purposely pose in a spot that would include the writing. The picture could have been taken from any angle but it looks like they tried to include the Commit part. He probably didn’t realize and it could be why he took the picture down.

01/27/2018 - 8:56pm Hey Magnus, I was on your

Hey Magnus, I was on your site and read that Sandidge cancelled his OV this weekend. It’s probably been discussed on here, but it’s the first I’ve heard about it. Do you have anything posted on who we are still chasing for the 2018 class? I’m curious to see how you think we finish and how many more guys we will take.

01/22/2018 - 11:11pm I would love to see Chris

I would love to see Chris Olave in this class. I think he’s underrated and will be a steal for whatever school gets him.

01/19/2018 - 11:13pm I’ve read on here at least a

I’ve read on here at least a hundred times, “trust Harbaugh”. This kid was a player that Harbaugh and staff wanted. You may not be impressed with his film but our staff was and that alone makes it a huge loss. Throw in the fact he went to OSU and it’s even worse.

01/19/2018 - 6:04pm Right now I would gladly take

Right now I would gladly take making the playoffs once ever four years.

01/19/2018 - 6:01pm What makes you think he

What makes you think he selected OSU because of his coach? It's not like he picked Illinois over us. It's way more likely that his decision has absolutely nothing at all to do with his coach.

01/19/2018 - 4:06pm Why didn’t the kid just

Why didn’t the kid just release his freaking commitment video last week? Instead he got my hopes up by delaying the announcement and meeting with our coaches. Even Magnus had someone telling him it was going to be Michigan. This sucks. At least our staff cooled on him, we never really wanted him, and OSU’s bag men bought his commitment.

01/19/2018 - 1:52pm Agreed. I think he would have

Agreed. I think he would have just released his commitment video if he was going to OSU but he has elected to trash it and announce at his school. I have a little bit of confidence that he goes Blue. Surprised there are no CB flips though.

01/19/2018 - 11:37am The CB’s haven’t changed but

The CB’s haven’t changed but it appears he’s no longer releasing a video and will make an announcement instead. This comes after delaying his decision and having an in-home visit with our coaches. I think he goes elsewhere, but I still have hope he makes the right choice and goes with the good guys.

01/18/2018 - 10:28pm The only person who said it's

The only person who said it's not a rivalry is an 18 year old kid from New York. I'm pretty sure Urban Meyer and his team considers it a rivalry.

01/18/2018 - 10:12pm It wasn't the coaches,

It wasn't the coaches, current players, or a bunch of fans that said it. It was one 18 year old recruit from New York. He doesn't remember the 80`s or 90's because he wasn't alive yet. Since he's been watching we`ve beaten them once. Kids his age that didn't grow up in Big ten country probably don't see it the way we do. 

I live in Columbus and everyone here still considers it a rivalry. The only difference is instead of people yelling Fuck Michigan at me, they want to ask me about Harbaugh first. 

01/17/2018 - 11:37pm Don’t give up. Several weeks

Don’t give up. Several weeks ago we were told my brother-in-law was dying, he probably won’t make it through the night and we should go see him at the hospital before he was gone. I won’t go into the details but two days ago the doctor said there’s a chance he could make a full recovery.
Pancreatic cancer is tough, but stay as positive as you can, believe in miracles, appreciate every day, and don’t give up. My prayers are with you and your family.

01/16/2018 - 8:46pm Thanks for the update on

Thanks for the update on Reese. God news in recruiting is always welcome. Glad I saw your comment in this thread.

01/16/2018 - 8:28pm Per 11 W recruiting article

Per 11 W recruiting article our staff went in home with Friday this past weekend. That sounds like a good sign to me but the OSU guys still seem confident.

01/13/2018 - 9:42am Nobody has changed their CB

Nobody has changed their CB to “foggy” or flipped it back to Michigan. OSU insiders don’t appear to be concerned and some are saying he could release the announcement video as soon as today. OSU needs a DE and will make room for him. My guess is the guy wasn’t thrilled that the results of his commitment video had been leaked and he’s delaying to keep people guessing. I don’t know. Hopefully there’s more to it and his mind isn’t made up yet.

01/11/2018 - 11:39pm I think I get it now. You

I think I get it now. You talked to a couple of players and you want to share your excitement with the board. The problem is you think you’re sharing inside information on this new attitude for the team but it’s all coach speak and motivation that the rest of us already knew existed. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll take a positive post
over “the sky is falling” anytime, but we heard all of this last year and we heard it from you.

01/11/2018 - 5:09pm The plays were there to be

The plays were there to be made and coaching got us a 14 - 0 lead. After that we were out scored 31-6. Their talent took over. Primarily, it was a lack of talent at key positions (mainly QB) that did us in.

01/10/2018 - 8:46pm How do you think the top 100

How do you think the top 100 players became top 100 players? If they were lazy and didn’t work hard they wouldn’t be where they are.

01/10/2018 - 8:24pm If you think football players

If you think football players have the same requirements to be accepted into Michigan as other students, you’re mistaken. We are way more selective of transfers, but that applies to maybe a player or two each year. Other than that, we are recruiting from the same pool of players as OSU. The notion that we can only recruit a handful of the top athletes because of our academic requirements isn’t true.

01/10/2018 - 8:04pm OSU is recruiting him as a

OSU is recruiting him as a DE.

01/10/2018 - 1:21pm Disagree. I would trade

Disagree. I would trade Mattison for Johnson in a heart beat and apparently so would most elite high school d-lineman.

01/10/2018 - 1:12pm I stand corrected. I thought

I stand corrected. I thought we were at 63% and didn't see Wiltfong's pick. Thanks for the info. Now I can just assume he's gone and if he does pick us then it will be a nice surprise. 


01/10/2018 - 12:42pm I'm not giving up yet. He's

I'm not giving up yet. He's releasing an announcement video this week and UM still leads in CB picks. Looks like most of the picks have been from OSU guys. Maybe they just like their chances and the guys are putting in their picks before the video is released? If the UM guys all flip their picks to OSU, then I'll give up but until then, I'm still expecting him to announce for the good guys.

01/04/2018 - 10:52pm If a talented recruit meets

If a talented recruit meets the NCAA minimum qualifications, he’s getting accepted almost every time. The minimum for athletes and regular students are not the same. There will always be a few kids that we don’t recruit because of grades or sat scores but a lot of schools have that problem.

01/02/2018 - 8:18pm I couldn’t agree more.

I couldn’t agree more. If he made his decision to leave he would just post it. He’s coming back.
