Out of the six transfers from the 2017 class, Deron Irving-Bey was from Flint, JaRaymond Hall was from Oak Park, and James Hudson was from Toledo.  Does that mean we should avoid signing recruits from within 55 miles of Ann Arbor?

Both 2017 Georgia signees transferred - Kurt Taylor and Aubrey Soloman.  Does that mean we should not sign recruits from Georgia?

"At any rate, OSU is OSU. Regardless of their coach, they’re going to attract top talent and they have 9 or 10 wins built in every season".

The same could have been said about Rich Rod and Michigan in 2007.

Don't want someone who feels entitled to PT.  Instead of working harder to earn PT, he bails.  He would be foolish to transfer to U-M where he is instantly playing behind, Peoples-Jones, Collins, Black, Martin, etc.

If you thought bowl games were meaningless before, wait until this year.  With the new redshirt rule, a lot of freshmen who have played less than four games will get playing time.

No telling if or how much Larry Page has donated to U-M.  What Google did was open an office in Ann Arbor that employs an estimated 450 people.  That's better than giving money to U-M because Google attracts/retains talented people in Ann Arbor and those employees pay taxes and contribute to the community.  Between the technology base in An Arbor and the technology that is being developed by the auto industry in Detroit, SE Michigan is becoming a technology hub.

06/03/2018 - 4:00pm If he transfers now

If he transfers now, the coach/playbook could change in a year from now and he could find himself in a system that doesn't fit his skill set.  He could end up another Steven Threet.  If he waits until he graduates before transferring, he can select a much more favorable situation and he will have a U-M degree to fall back on.

05/25/2018 - 1:10pm You majored in pre-unemployment

You majored in pre-unemployment (history).  You would have had a hard time finding a job no matter where you went to school.

05/24/2018 - 7:11am KMI

Agree on KMI.  They raised their annual dividend from $0.50 to $0.80 this year and have committed to raising it $1.00 in 2019 and $1.25 in 2020.  Rich Kinder, the founder & executive chairman of KMI, owns 235 million shares of KMI so his personal interests and those of shareholders are 100% aligned.  It's reassuring when the chef eats his own cooking.  With the increase in shale production and the limited pipeline capacity, KMI has a bright future.  KMI is like Matty Moroun owning the Ambassador bridge. 

Also, like Schlumberger.  SLB is the Lexus of oilfield services.  As the price of energy rise, energy companies will increase their capex to maintain/increase capacity.  As the saying goes, don't invest in the gold miners, invest in the company that makes the picks and shovels.  SLB wins, not matter which energy company does well. 

Then there is Cisco (CSCO).  As long as the Internet continues to be built out and upgraded, CSCO will prosper.  There are upstarts that eat into CSCO's market share but there will still be the FUD (fear, uncertainty, and doubt) factor.  No IT manager wants the responsibility of risking an IT system going down to save a few bucks.  From a financial standpoint, CSCO is repatriating $67 billion that will be used for $25 billion in stock buybacks and dividend increases.
