Josh Allen is way better, that's probably why.
|01/16/2019 - 2:29pm||We hade 7 top 175 decommits…||
We hade 7 top 175 decommits in that cycle plus a 5* tight end that was apparently a silent commit.
|01/16/2019 - 10:32am||Interesting, thanks! I just…||
Interesting, thanks! I just knew he was from Detroit, wasnt sure which High School though.
|01/16/2019 - 10:13am||I enjoy their site a lot…||
I enjoy their site a lot. Ramzy, Andrew Lind, and a few of the others do really good work and spend a lot of time and energy on their craft. I have a lot of respect for their writers. That being said, their board is straight cancer, and I would never join that community. But I'll absolutely give some of their writers my clicks and attention, because outside of rooting for scum of the earth, they're really talented, and I enjoy reading about college football.
|01/15/2019 - 5:21pm||Any relation to Desmond King…||
Any relation to Desmond King, the former Iowa/Current NFL corner?
|01/12/2019 - 2:31pm||I've been hoping for Craig…||
I've been hoping for Craig Kuligowski for the entire offseason. He's by far the best defensive line coach in football. He was at Mizzou for awhile, and was responsible for Charles Harris, Shane Ray, Aldon Smith, Sheldon Richardson, and Ziggy Hood being first round draft picks. And that doesn't include Kony Early, Michael Sam, and Markus Golden being drafted later.
He's an incredible coach, and a very solid recruiter. I would trade Mattison and Washington for Kuligowski in a heartbeat.
|01/12/2019 - 1:00am||If you had literally any…||
If you had literally any idea of how structured game day itineraries are, you wouldn't believe that for a second. There would literally have to be weed being smoked in the locker room before the game. Sure it's possible for the Josh Gordon type to do it, but thats one player, the coaches would notice the entire team.
|01/11/2019 - 3:31pm||At this point last year the…||
At this point last year the following prospects weren't on our radars:
and a bunch of other prospects.
A lot of players aren't scouted as heavily by the services, theres plenty of time for the rankings to change and for players to visit different schools. Recruiting rankings are accurate, but end of the cycle recruiting classes are accurate. Right now is basically a dart board
|01/11/2019 - 8:56am||In Washington's defense, he…||
In Washington's defense, he did an amazing job recruiting at Cincy, just not the same caliber as recruiting at Penn State and Alabama.
|01/09/2019 - 9:07pm||I'm pretty sure this was…||
I'm pretty sure this was expected. I think everyone assumed the reason he hadn't committed yet was he was waiting on Stanford. Oh well, good luck to him. 2020 will still be a good class, even though this is a bummer.
|01/07/2019 - 9:09am||Ok so it wouldn't be ideal,…||
Ok so it wouldn't be ideal, but Jim Harbaugh would bring in a great DC. Jim Leavitt would probably be first on the short list. Losing Brown would stink but it wouldn't be the end of the world. I could actually see GMatt leaving as a slight positive, just because you could argue that the constant questions about whether or not he'd retire would be over. But it would definitely suck.
|01/06/2019 - 2:07pm||Oh I agree. I was just…||
Oh I agree. I was just saying I wouldn't mind an incredible season as long as its not an undefeated season going into march.
|01/06/2019 - 11:39am||I don't want Michigan to be…||
I don't want Michigan to be undefeated going into the tourney. 33-2 is cool. Hell 33-1 is cool. Do not want undefeated.
|01/05/2019 - 9:44pm||Scared money don't make…||
Scared money don't make money.
|01/05/2019 - 11:38am||I don't think not wanting…||
I don't think not wanting him to have a successful career is the same as wishing Ill will. It's fine to just hope he loses a bunch of games in college and shits the bed against Michigan without having legit ill will.
|01/04/2019 - 9:55pm||Lol people need to realize…||
Lol people need to realize that for high school OL, 6'4 means 6'2. 300 either means 280 or 320 depending on if they look too small or too fat. HS QBs are almost as bad in the height and weight department
|01/04/2019 - 11:37am||I know when I'm out of line…||
I know when I'm out of line. I was out of line, and as someone who got a few scoops this offseason, I learned how quickly things changed lol.
|01/04/2019 - 11:35am||He absolutely deserves to…||
He absolutely deserves to work for a living and have a career. But his past transgressions also mean that we don't have to celebrate him the same way, because its a big elephant in the closet. Both can be true.
|01/03/2019 - 8:47pm||Cool. Not sure if you saw my…||
Cool. Not sure if you saw my apology in the other thread, but I would like to apologize for being a dickhead to you that night we had a bit of a row. Hope we're all good.
|01/03/2019 - 7:29pm||Any word on Al Washington??||
Any word on Al Washington??
|01/03/2019 - 3:54pm||Little chicken and the egg…||
Little chicken and the egg going on here. So few are adequately equipped to evaluate and judge offensive line performance, that naturally players on great teams will receive more recognition. Personally Dalton Risner, Bunchy Stallings, Cole Van Lanen, Tyler Biadisz, and Max Scharping have all very strong cases, and it just feels like Mitch Hyatt and Ben Powers are on there for the fact they're the best offensive lineman on a great team. If Alex Hornibrook has a solid season, I think the Wisconsin offensive line gets more recognition. But they're still all quality selections.
|01/02/2019 - 4:03pm||Because the offense has been…||
Because the offense has been hampered with poor offensive line play. But I would argue Jake Butt was a superstar. He was the best tight end in football.
|01/02/2019 - 3:17pm||You forget about "Those Who…||
You forget about "Those Who Stay are already champions"? Or Chris Frey "locking us in the shed", or "Thought all they needed was a quarterback?" after the Notre Dame game? Or the Allen brothers or the Bulloughs? Or their walk while Michigan was on the field? They talk the most amount of shit, and are a tire fire of a program. I hope Michigan never stops tearing up that shithole.
|01/02/2019 - 2:51pm||I think Devin Bush, David…||
I think Devin Bush, David Long, Mo Hurst, Taco Charlton, DPJ, and Jabrill Peppers would disagree that great players don't become superstars. Rashan Gary was played somewhat out of position, but was still very good. We didn't lose Enos because of Drevno, we lost Enos because Bama came calling. People see the writing on the wall for Pep, it won't impact a coordinator hire. Everyone does Playcalling by committee, Michigan just has a less inspiring committee and less organization. There's no direct play caller.
Also did you really say that you wished our teams would be less arrogant like Dantonio teams? Was that sarcastic?
|01/02/2019 - 2:18pm||The National sites don't…||
The National sites don't really care as much because they know people are gonna click regardless. Like I said, take it with as many grains of salt as you want.
|01/02/2019 - 2:15pm||The AAG is only through Day…||
The AAG is only through Day 1, so I wouldn't think too much into it. And yea, the Tarik Black comparisons are pretty good.
|01/02/2019 - 2:08pm||I could see Michigan State…||
I could see Michigan State surprising people. Even though he's 20-18 in his last three years, expect Mark Dantonio to come out firing and maybe only get embarrassed offensively in 2 or 3 games this year.
Watch out for Duke in the ACC. Especially if Zion Williamson decides to stick around another year and play football. Could be a real menace off the edge, and their coach turned down Michigan a few years ago before we hired Harbaugh, so he's pretty good.
Big Ten West? Well considering Wisconsin, Northwestern and Iowa have won division championships in the last 4 years, Nebraska is a blue blood, and Purdue beat Ohio State by 29, that really only leaves Illinois. I don't know anything about Illinois. Maybe they'll be good, maybe they won't. But they have another Isaiah Williams coming to play QB which means Ohio State is in trouble.
Pac12: Anyone. They were all shitty. Lets just say everyone.
SEC: Alabama's second string.
|01/02/2019 - 11:54am||No. That's really stupid and…||
No. That's really stupid and you should feel bad for being stupid.
|01/02/2019 - 11:54am||So his first year that means…||
So his first year that means he only would've been able to start true freshmen. Malzone and Gentry.
His second year, first full year, he got Peters, but with Speight and O'Korn both returning, it didn't make sense to start a redshirt freshman or a true freshman.
Third year, he had a solid returning starter in Speight, so him starting wasn't exactly a bad thing. Gentry was a Tight end at that point, and Malzone was out for the most part. Peters was at the helm and McCaffery was so new.
Fourth year he got an All SEC caliber QB to fill the gaps and did reasonably well, and he's coming back. McCaffery is a quality starting option, but just had Patterson returning. Kudos to Harbaugh for knowing when to fill the gaps with other options instead of just rolling with his guys.
|01/02/2019 - 9:18am||The NFL is probably better…||
The NFL is probably better equipped to develop players because its a full time job. I don't see a way that he gets into the first round, so it's probably a good time for him to jump especially considering an injury would cripple his stock.
|01/02/2019 - 8:47am||And Gentry got his degree,…||
And Gentry got his degree, gave his all, and selflessly changed positions when a lot of kids his age would have transferred to play QB. Gentry has been a good representation of the program, so good for him, and we should all wish him the best of luck!
|01/01/2019 - 9:26pm||Ehhh the player mistreatment…||
Ehhh the player mistreatment isn't why he got canned. It wasn't that serious, but IU was tired of covering up his tendency to drive while incredibly intoxicated. True story.
|12/30/2018 - 2:41pm||This is huge for the program…||
This is huge for the program. Not only do they get a great player, but they get to let the younger develop a bit more and build up the depth in the secondary. If Long comes back, they'll have some insane talent in the back 7, and should be able to hold Ohio State to less than 62 points.
|12/29/2018 - 4:48pm||Relax. Jim Harbaugh has…||
Relax. Jim Harbaugh has always been good at adjusting. Offensive Line was bad, he got rid of Frey/Drevno. Recruiting slacked, brought in Moore and Washington. Wide Receivers weren't good, he got a full time coach. Strength and Conditioning was an issue, he got Herbert. I would expect a pretty big change on staff, and I would guess Michigan gets a full time OC and is more spread oriented than they've been.
|12/29/2018 - 4:46pm||Actually super curious about…||
Actually super curious about this. Do you come back for all the games, or do you sell them and try and be back for an important one or so? Or do you give them to family and pick and choose when you can go, or what's the plan for a season ticket holder in San Diego?
|12/26/2018 - 11:24am||As someone that's played and…||
As someone that's played and coached OL, that makes a lot of sense. Most of Wisconsin's star linemen were both ways players and tight ends in high school. Same with Iowa, there's a finite amount of 300+ pounders that can move well while carrying that amount of weight, and for the most part Bama ends up with a lot of them.
|12/21/2018 - 3:51pm||I'm aware they play them…||
I'm aware they play them every year. They're also good teams. It's not to say that Tennessee is going to be world beaters, but I understand the reason for optimism among fans and recruits. Tennessee was a 5-7 team that's got a decent amount of upward projection
|12/21/2018 - 3:44pm||Mizzou was a pretty good…||
Mizzou was a pretty good team dude. Lost to Georgia and Alabama, lost by 2 in a tsunami to South Carolina, and 1 on the last play of the game to Kentucky. They went 8-4 and beat Florida and Tennessee badly, they were 16th in S&P+, and have been a pretty solid team. Yea Tennessee wasn't very good last year, but I understand the reason for optimism in recruiting and their fan base without automatically assuming it's because of bagmen.
Let's say that all their players are being given the bag (which they almost definitely are, but every blue chip is), don't you think Georgia and Alabama have tried to drop a bag for the same players? So at that point its basically down to recruiting, no?
And Brady Hoke didn't play 5 top 10 teams, and 7 top 25 teams in his first year.
|12/21/2018 - 2:19pm||Ehhh he and I got into it…||
Ehhh he and I got into it one night when I called him out for shit haha. He's a decent source, he gets stuff wrong, it's whatever. I trust my source on this one.
|12/21/2018 - 1:54pm||Don't really get why people…||
Don't really get why people are so confused as to why Tennessee would draw top tier commits and transfers. Great and rich football history, good town, great facilities, new coaching staff, playing time, and a somewhat upward trajectory. If you look at Derek Dooley like Rich Rod, and Butch Jones as Brady Hoke, they have a similar down period to Michigan. Just unfortunate that Pruitt played Alabama, Georgia, West Virginia, Florida, and Mizzou. It was a tough schedule.
|12/20/2018 - 1:38pm||Big wide receivers are good…||
Big wide receivers are good if they're able to keep the fluidity in their route running. He's listed at 6'3 210, if he could get to 6'4 230 that would be a weapon. I have no issue with him at linebacker or safety, I like him a lot as a prospect, I just think an outside receiver would be really good.
|12/20/2018 - 12:42pm||I agree, it's usually a…||
I agree, it's usually a smart pickup to take a 4* Quarterback. Personally I think I'd rather see Hickson at WR, because he's a big, athletic guy with leaping ability. I think he'd be a weapon. Thomas slid bc I think he got hurt, he's a solid guy. Linebacker is an underwhelming position to me, but not bad. Just means it's probably priority number 1 next year.
Edge rusher is another huge priority. I like Ojabo a lot, but I think Morris's future is inside, and Newburg will be solid, but I don't think he develops into anything more than Ryan VanBergen. Really good player, but thats probably it.
|12/20/2018 - 11:41am||Vilain is more versatile,…||
Vilain is more versatile, better against the run than Uche. I think Paye and Uche will both be used in pass rushing situations
|12/20/2018 - 11:40am||So from what I know, Alabama…||
So from what I know, Alabama drove home the Harbaugh leaving/Don Brown leaving, and Hill got cold feet. Committed to a room full of coaches literally within 48 hours I believe.
|12/20/2018 - 11:15am||He did flip for a day lmao||
He did flip for a day lmao
|12/20/2018 - 11:14am||I posted that someone told…||
I posted that someone told me Hill recommitted the following day. UMBig11 has confirmed that, so as a way of patting myself on the back for being 3/3 with my info this cycle, I will drink a nice Vodka Lemonade. Hold me to this
|12/19/2018 - 6:32pm||I don't see it with Juice…||
I don't see it with Juice. He's a great athlete but he's so raw, the competition level is probably still going to be too much. If he was poised to make that jump I think we would've heard more about him. I think he needs minimum one, possibly two more years. But if he puts it together, watch out. I would expect Vilain and Hutchinson to be the DE's next year, but I would guess we see a steadier rotation with Kwity Paye and Josh Uche. Welschof, Morris, Upshaw, Ojabo, and Newburg are probably only playing if something really bad happens. Lot of raw talent there, with a ton of potential, but GMatt has his work cut out for him.
|12/19/2018 - 3:50pm||Devin Bush also sustained a…||
Devin Bush also sustained a relatively serious hip injury that is hindering him. Not really the same situation at all.
|12/19/2018 - 10:06am||Found Ronnie Bell, the…||
Found Ronnie Bell, the players love him, works his ass off, high energy, great recruiter and scout. I also love how he'll call people out for attacking players and recruits on twitter, dude is funny. Got a bad rep for the poor class last year but I think that was more so having 3 poor recruiters on staff.
|12/18/2018 - 2:01pm||Your kid can't run a 4.5 40…||
Your kid can't run a 4.5 40 or cover an elite athlete, so it doesn't actually apply. Also next time your kid can get a brain injury or blow out a knee in class, let me know.
