They likely have the best OL in the country. Pair that with a good defense, a great RB, and a serviceable QB, and you’ve got a really good team.

Clearly you are unaware of the pact he made with Satan. Saban is a machine that runs on Red Man chew and the knees of running backs. He will never die; he will never age. QED

I really hope so. I’d much rather have him than DPJ or any other starter on punt/kick return duties, assuming he can catch the ball cleanly. Unless there’s a game changer like Peppers, having a starter back there seems reckless.

The optimist in me hopes they are truly attempting to do a thorough investigation. The cynic wonders whether they saw the backlash from placing a 14 day definitive end date on the investigation and are attempting to mitigate takes that the investigation was a sham.

I think the problem people have is that you are mischaracterizing (or misunderstanding) what he is saying. He is saying that, when freshmen arrive, they see the older guys and wonder if they are good enough. I am not sure what that has to do with having a chip on your shoulder. Same thought has probably crossed through everyone’s mind at some point in life. It is about overcoming that uncertainty and gaining confidence. He is not telling the players they are or are not talented enough, he is expressing what many freshman football players feel, something he knows a bit about, having been there.

Turner might be too short? He's 5'11". If anything, he might be too tall for the Hart comparison. Hart was very generously listed at 5'9"

Wisconsin offered him. That’s good enough for me.

You’re basing it on the stock price? It has a >6% yield and ~5.5 P/E. Meanwhile, companies showing losses year in/year out are selling at far higher valuations. People can talk all they want about projected growth, but I’ll take the undervalued stock with actual earnings and a bunch of cash on hand. I may be way off base in my investing, but claiming Ford’s stock price is evidence of anything other than an undervalued company is crazy. As Keynes said, “the market can remain irrational longer than you can remain solvent,” and this market is nothing if not irrational.

I say just go crazy with the tools available. Spread four-wide with Gentry and Eubanks outside, and McKeon and Peoples-Jones in the slot. Maybe have Mason as the lone back, kept in for blocking.

Except, he can block (hopefully). A guy with Funchess’ receiving ability is a bigger threat from the TE spot, if he can block

How positive are we that the Wisterts weren’t all the same guy? I have yet to see conclusive proof to the contrary, and will preemptively assert any photographs are photoshopped

Isn’t it “past performance isn’t a guarantee of future outcomes?” It would seem to be foolish to look at a potential investment without at least considering past performance as a factor.

Can we do a daily Snowflakes thread where people can post all their thoughts and updates on the Meyer situation? I generally come here to read about Michigan, not about OSU. I think the board and Brian have fully fleshed out the fact that Meyer is a piece of shit and that this is more important than football. At this point it is just beating a dead horse as we wait 2 weeks for the investigators’ findings.

Realistically, Fromm should be ahead of both Tagovailoa (based on production) and Patterson (because Patterson is in a new system)

08/05/2018 - 6:47pm Was it conservative though?…

Was it conservative though? I was at the game (unfortunately), and I distinctly remember multiple deep passes that were badly overthrown. The conservative play calls did a great job of opening up big play opportunities, but the players just couldn't execute. I don't know how you can call an aggressive game plan when the QB can't complete a pass longer than 5 yards. 

Regarding CLion's first point about Harbaugh not naming a QB early enough, maybe the problem was that none of the QBs were performing well enough in camp? I would guess that Harbaugh knows better than us the importance of having a confident QB. If none of them are performing well though, should he really just name a starter to make that player feel more confident? Seems like that would be a good way to end up putting too many eggs into a single, unreliable basket.

He’s a troll. His only other posts are from January bashing Harbaugh about Enos going to Bama. I had actually forgotten about the Enos thing, and that thread was quite a trip down memory lane

Can he also graduate a year early then?

Michigan needs a guy with hands like this. Haven’t had a WR who could consistently bail out the QB with tough catches since Junior Hemingway. Chesson and Darboh were good, but they didn’t make the tough catches when needed (Iowa game stands out). Obviously, I hope the current batch of sophomores ends this spell, but Michigan has had a lot of close losses that  could have changed if our receivers made the tough catches that the other teams’ guys make so frequently against us.

I have to ask, who other than computer programmers cared about the old site looking dated? Internet fads come and go. I must be in the minority, but ever since I first saw a site with this layout a year or two ago I have hated it. “Old” sites were more intuitive to use and were laid out in a manner that made sense: chronologically. I am not complaining about mgoblog, as the content is still second to none (and I’m an addict), but just about this newest trend.

Where Barkley was drafted is proof that his physical tools were much better than that of a 4 star. In aggregate, recruiting rankings matter, but Barkley is a perfect example of an individual who was badly underrated coming out of high school

Based on the scant info you keep giving and the repeated linking to the video, I have to believe you have some connection to the creator of that video and are simply trying to generate views for him. Plus, what’s with the continued reference to the little birdie. I know that’s what is said in the video, but why not just say source?

As long as they keep paying their dividends at their current rate and earning profits (unlike Tesla), I'll be happy.

04/17/2018 - 4:50pm It is hard for a coach to

It is hard for a coach to call a good game when he has no faith in his QB. That severely limits the playbook and prevents the coach from taking advantage of opportunities that would be availble with a competent QB. People really underestimate the impact of the poor QB play last year. On one hand, it is up to the coaches to get the QBs up to par. On the other, the only two QBs on the roster recruited from high school by the current staff were a RS Frosh and a true Frosh. Yes, other programs have had successful youg QBs, but I would guess that those programs are notable exceptions, rather than the rule.

For clarity's sake, maybe state who thee_Matty_D (or any other twitter handle) is when posting in the future. Many of us do not have the twitter handles of the members of the staff memorized. Yes, I was able to find out that it is Matt Dudek, Michigan's Direcotr of Recruiting, using Google, but why not just say that in the post?

Per the Illini fans I know: Self is a great recruiter but terrible coach; and Weber is a great coach but terrible recruiter. That is why Weber was able to do so much more with the talent Self accumulated at Illinois than Self ever did or could have.
