I don't know how many of those guys were grad transfers, but Kelly Bryant and CJ Fuller (RIP) were grad transfers, meaning they weren't seeing the field anyway.  What we're losing are potential/penciled-in starters for 2019. 

Either way, when you recruit guys far from home or have higher academic standards, this will happen.  And if any of this is grades, it makes me wonder about Harbaugh's comments at Stanford that got him in trouble here.  I wonder if he is pushing academics harder than other coaches.

12/17/2018 - 2:27pm Umm, will we?  Losing Gary,…

Umm, will we?  Losing Gary, Winovich, Solomon, Bush and possibly Long and Hill means next year will be a transitional year on defense.  Hopefully Dr. Blitz has those LBs and Vipers causing havoc next season.

12/17/2018 - 12:31pm The defense didn't throw a…

The defense didn't throw a goose egg in any quarter.  Did they even force a turnover?  Regardless of the offense, the defense was a disaster all game long.

12/17/2018 - 8:41am DPJ was a local kid, just…

DPJ was a local kid, just like the 5 star OL from Belleville who's signing with MSU.  People forget about location, location, location.  Alabama would not be Alabama without the 5 star talent pipeline down south.  I am sure we would have more 5 star guys if we had that kind of talent in the high schools in the Midwest.

Harbaugh gets all kind of credit for keeping DPJ at home, but he's fighting a tough geographical battle.

That loss was in the CFP, two years after winning it all.  You can afford blowout losses in the playoffs when you still have a recent national championship.

When distance (250 miles) is stated as a reason, distance is a cop out, not a reason.

He's wavering because of 62-39.

I don't even know if that's how ghosts work.

Who said he was a good dad?  He set the bar at "dad".

Ron Franklin was the voice of college football if you didn't turn the TV on before 8PM.  It's funny how comments to/about women essentially ended the careers of both Franklin and Musberger.  What does Fowler have to top them?

We're on the first page for CJK5H.  Thank you to whoever that user is.

That's because she doesn't swallow.  The little things count.

"The voice of college football"?  I'm sorry, but when he was at the height of popularity, Keith Jackson was still going strong.  Keith Jackson was and still is the voice of college football of the past 40 years, and he's no longer with us.

Wasn't Alabama the undisputed king of oversigning?  They will take all three and someone will get a firm handshake next month.

For those LOL'ing at OSU, don't underestimate their ability to snake oil a top safety commit from someone else.

I am officially now going to watch that program.  

12/14/2018 - 8:34am I don't think that's how it…

I don't think that's how it works.

I assume those recruits were Mormon.

12/13/2018 - 6:03pm The author of that article,…

The author of that article, Julie Mack, is an MSU grad.  That could have something to do with it.

EDIT: I did just a quick word search and "MSU" is listed over 120 times in the report.  Sounds like pretty heavy involvement for a 200-page document.

12/13/2018 - 4:21pm Yeah, they should definitely…

Yeah, they should definitely put an asterisk by CoPa unless everybody spits in pizza and murders.

12/13/2018 - 4:18pm They did this for all the…

They did this for all the Lions players on the ballot.  Let's not give them hell for something probably every other NFL team is doing.

12/13/2018 - 1:32pm Until we're winning at…

Until we're winning at Alabama/OSU levels, I want to play one tough non-conference game, 10 average teams and 1 really good OSU team.  It's essentially what Alabama does every year, except their non-conference challenge is usually at a stale NFL stadium.

I'd rather have to apologize for beating crap teams on the way to the CFP than having two losses and going to a non-CFP game...unless that game is the Rose Bowl.

Until they expand the playoff, this will be my stance.  

12/13/2018 - 9:11am I'd rather deal with one…

I'd rather deal with one great team than a bunch of teams good enough to beat us if we don't bring our A-game.  Is it better to deal with one team littered with 4-5 star players or multiple teams boasting multiple 4-star players?

Also, cherry on top would be Larry Johnson retiring or going to the NFL.  He's not coming here and it would be best for us if he's not recruiting within the B1G footprint any more.

12/12/2018 - 11:56pm Sadly, I wouldn't give this…

Sadly, I wouldn't give this saga two seconds of thought if we would've beaten OSU.  Now I want any kind of good news.

12/12/2018 - 9:19pm I think he's literally the…

I think he's literally the first person in Mgoblog history that's too short to leave early.  I'd rather him hit 50% from three and take our chances.

12/12/2018 - 9:18pm I know there can be miracles…

I know there can be miracles from on high, but I don't even try to ask the big man for help on that tall task.

12/12/2018 - 9:16pm C'mon man.  And we were…

C'mon man.  And we were having such fun playing in this thread.

12/12/2018 - 9:14pm Never saw this in color.  I…

Never saw this in color.  I think I prefer the B&W version.

12/12/2018 - 9:13pm Wow.  I came for the…

Wow.  I came for the documents, stayed for the snark.

After watching 30 seconds of the Giles Jackson video, I'll wait until he signs before finishing.  

12/12/2018 - 4:23pm TBH, that would hurt my…

TBH, that would hurt my feelings too, especially if it's Texas de Brazil.

12/12/2018 - 10:14am Oh man, they should hire the…

Oh man, they should hire the interim head coach.  This guy is a cross between Brady Hoke and Chris Farley

If Don gets the job, good for him.  Temple is not a bad job anymore.  I would have to believe it's Diaz's job if he wants it.  He's a good DC and young (44 years old).

I would watch the Pistons if he was announcing.  He makes late night MWC basketball watchable.

That didn't help Hoke.  Luke Fickell helped Hoke.

12/11/2018 - 4:39pm At what point do people…

At what point do people realize intensity and focus isn't the issue, but talent, execution and gameplan?

They were focused in 2016, but a two killer INTs were the difference.  They were focused in 2017 but our QB play was piss poor.  They were focused in 2018, but the coaches decided it was better to get burned playing man.  Also, the only reason the OSU games were close during Hoke's era was because those dudes were intense and focused.

12/11/2018 - 4:29pm He said the same thing a…

He said the same thing a couple years ago about Isaiah Wilson.

12/11/2018 - 4:23pm Chase is a big boy.  I'm…

Chase is a big boy.  I'm sure he can handle it.

12/11/2018 - 1:51pm I wish whoever threatened to…

I wish whoever threatened to fight would have fought and won.

12/11/2018 - 1:50pm Maybe Dax found out it's…

Maybe Dax found out it's actually Saban going to Green Bay, not Harbaugh.

12/11/2018 - 12:42pm Jaren Jackson would get the…

Jaren Jackson would get the same amount of run in the rematch that he had last season.

Are you reading Graham Couch's Bracketology?

12/11/2018 - 12:39pm I trust Beilein to have the…

I trust Beilein to have the freshmen ready to contribute by February.  Also, there are not many, if any, teams in the B1G that go 10-deep.  I'm more concerned about our FT shooting than anything else.

12/11/2018 - 11:47am That's the path to Wild Card…

That's the path to Wild Card glory, which means another hamblasting in Chicago.

12/11/2018 - 11:45am 1 likely won't happen, but…

1 likely won't happen, but if GB is eliminated from the playoffs, I doubt they play a still-injured Aaron Rodgers.

12/10/2018 - 4:19pm He must think he has the…

He must think he has the horses to beat UNC this year.  Not smart to diss UNC before a game at their place.

12/10/2018 - 4:07pm Injury-prone Ziggy Ansah…

Injury-prone Ziggy Ansah hurt his shoulder trying to make a tackle.  That can't be the lead injury you reference.  It was unrelated to the field conditions.

12/10/2018 - 1:22pm When did they start adding…

When did they start adding all-purpose players?  Interesting addition.

12/10/2018 - 1:20pm Hopefully, UNC beats Gonzaga…

Hopefully, UNC beats Gonzaga which would drop them below us and raise our profile even more, in comparison to Tennessee.

12/08/2018 - 10:20pm We gave up 62 points in our…

We gave up 62 points in our last game and lost our top defensive commit in the 2019 class and we're still talking about the offense?  

Man this offseason is going to suck.

12/07/2018 - 6:27pm Exactly.  Let the one and…

Exactly.  Let the one and done's go off to the NBA and it puts Michigan on a more level playing field with the one-and-done factories.  Beilein develops players better than almost anyone else out there.  It's hard to name the last 3-star recruit Duke or Kentucky developed into a draft pick.
