Experienced both to some extent and it is a difficult decision.  My grandmother had terminal cancer and passed away five minutes before I walked through the door. Even though I got to talk to her briefly on the phone while driving I was devastated. 

The chemo treatment I had before my bone marrow transplant wiped me out and I asked everyone to stay away for a couple days.  I was thankful they did because I was exhausted and always felt obligated to be talkative when visitors were there.

As difficult as it may be for you, I  would honor your friends wishes. Keep texting to stay in contact and be there for the family when the time comes.

Cheating doesn't make things "straight up".

Didn't they just add stipends to athletes a couple years ago?  The last I heard it cost on average 174,000 per athlete yearly and there were some expenses not included in that.  I can't find the donation request flyer to verify what wasn't included.

Best offer beside us is Cincinnati.  Three star to 247 2047 nationally and 56th in Michigan.  Generic two star in the composite.  I don't see enough athleticism for DE yet alone LB.  Maybe he has the frame to grow into a DT.  Still don't understand taking this commitment this early.

We are going to have to have quite a few early entrants and some attrition to fit this class

The conference he is in is terrible and his team still went 3-6 with the 3 wins being over two 1 win teams and one 2 win team.  Our local HS was 3-6 overall and 0-3 averaging 8 points a game when they played Garber.  Beat them by putting 50 on them with a team primarily of sophomores and juniors.  Ben is a very good athlete who likes to talk.  It will be interesting to see what he does now that he is not bigger and faster than almost everyone he plays.  The step up in competition is going to be tremendous.

08/09/2018 - 2:36pm The only question in my mind…

The only question in my mind is which side wins academics or athletics.  If it is the latter I expect President Drake would consider stepping down.  Drake fired the marching band director after a scandal in 2014.  He graduated from Stanford and got his MD from UC San Francisco.  OSU has climbed considerably under his leadership and US News has them ranked 54th in the country.

5 star RB vs a 4 star TE who had the bad luck of getting injured frequently. If you're going to call someone a bust maybe you should learn how to spell their name. Especially since his father was one of the greatest RBs to ever wear a winged helmet. It's Wheatley.

If the best Bill Greene says about the kid is solid that is not a ringing endorsement.  55th best player in Ohio and his profile list a 27" vertical. My wife has volleyball players with better verticals.

That is the big question, does the academic or athletic side of the university win.

Do you actually think McMurphy is going to put himself at risk of being sued. Especially when he doesn't have an employer and their legal team to defend him.

I don't think you know what an Hback is.

It's according to Wilton Speight saying it. Getting a story from a guy who transferred out of the program probably isn't the best idea. If Harbaugh was so against chicken why is Chick-fil-a on the suggested eating list from the new nutritionalist?

Section 18 row 1. Great group of people who are loud, fun, and willing to stand.

Not sure where you're getting your info, but Peters was second string out of spring ball.  Unless Dylan puts on weight he is going to have a hard time making it through a season 6'5" and 199 lbs (last reported weight) could get broken in half.  Especially if Bosa blindsides him.

You mean pan pizza? Never seen a true deep dish pizza out of Detroit. Chicago deep dish is far superior.

Have a hard time reading? It says scheduled official.  

05/31/2018 - 7:58am Stars don't matter?

Yes they do. This has been proven over and over.  If you want proof look at the rosters of the teams that played in the NC game last year.

05/31/2018 - 7:54am In line with PSU?

Down a full point per player to PSU with almost 1/2 our class three stars to 1/4 of theirs.  Interesting that their lowest rated player is the #11 juco player in the country and #1 safety.  Being much closer this year to OSU isn't goinmg to take much considering last year was one of the worst recruiting classes in my lifetime, but still down two points per player.  As far as Clemson, they have a punter this year so that 78 brings their average way down.  If you take the punters average out they are equal with us.

The biggest difference is that we are not on the crystal ball projection line for any top 100 recruits while the others you mentioned are. Granted CBs aren't always right

coxswain?

05/30/2018 - 1:55pm So PJ is the

coxswain?

05/29/2018 - 1:58pm They also have 4 OOC games to our 3

thus the talk of M scheduling three cupcakes.  Bama's P5 opponents in 2018 have 64 combined wins last year and they play one 10 win team.  Michigan's P5 opponents have 84 wins and 6 10 win teams are on the schedule. Georgia's had 60 wins and one 10 win team from last year.

05/26/2018 - 2:32pm That's because

He didn't want to bankrupt the athletic department.

05/26/2018 - 2:27pm Because we will have played Wisconsin

six years in a row prior. 

05/26/2018 - 2:22pm I always enjoyed the opportunity to see

players that work hard in practice getting some game action.  

05/22/2018 - 2:01pm Not only that, but

the D played a lot of 3-3-5 last year. 

05/18/2018 - 2:35pm Kind of like the stuff

in the OP's picture.

05/12/2018 - 10:33am WRs dropping balls

also factor into completion percentage and his WRs dropped quite a few balls.  Nobody is expecting him to start, but you act like you have been to practice or something.  Sam Webb has been and has stated if Milton has as good a fall camp as he did in the spring don't be surprised to see a package for him during the season.  I think I'll take Sam's word before JonnyHintz.

05/12/2018 - 10:28am And you would be

wrong.

05/12/2018 - 10:24am Since per Sam

McCaffrey and Milton were tied for third you may be wrong.  McCaffrey still needs to add weight because 199 lbs at 6'5" is still rail thin for getting blindsided by a DE or blitzing LBer.

05/11/2018 - 1:06pm Looks like Iowa twice on Carton's jersey

either that or it is the darkest Blue I have ever seen in my life.

05/11/2018 - 1:01pm Hinton probably grows into a 3 tech

once he gets into a college S&C program.

05/10/2018 - 1:32pm Who is this tackle

I'm curious.

05/07/2018 - 2:05pm To be fair

they lost 2 DTs, 2 LBs, and their entire secondary, possibly the best RB in school history, leading wr in school history, TE freak, and their OC.

05/06/2018 - 6:16pm The Eastern Conference is a joke

that's why he stays there.  The competition they played against is totally different as is the game.  Think of the teams MJ went up against in the East and name one current team that would advance past the first round.

Funny thing is players have to give up their game to play with him.  Bosh and Love went from superstars to minor role players.  Kyrie couldn't stand playing with him so he left.

05/04/2018 - 5:22pm Mitch was not a composite 5 star

in the final rankings, but GR3 was.

05/01/2018 - 6:42pm To think if I wouldn't have played 12 years of football

I might have my Doctorate instead of this lowly Masters.

04/29/2018 - 1:24pm That's exactly why I never bet on Michigan

Nothing worse than losing money because your team won but didn't cover the spread.  Except losing.

04/28/2018 - 2:27pm He had 9 sacks in 4 years

with a high of 3 as a senior.  So if you actually believe he is a pass rusher you must be a Lions fan.

04/28/2018 - 2:21pm Absolutely no one but the Browns

and their draft this year made me change my mind about the Lions.  They are no longer the most incompetent franchise in the NFL.  Who reaches at #1 and #4?

04/26/2018 - 12:54pm I want

the Fords to sell the team!

04/20/2018 - 12:56pm Athletic with a good mid range game

but in the NBA he is a 2 guard.  Needs to improve his handle, improve his outside shot, and cut down on turnovers.

04/20/2018 - 12:36pm Not a bad idea

I'm sure you would have no problem renting it out.

04/16/2018 - 9:32pm Keegan is OSU's to lose

We are probably 3rd for him.  Stewart's other B1G offers were from Indiana, Maryland, and Rutgers.  This is the type of player we use to pick up late (if needed) not 8 months before signing day.

Carpenter's other B1G offers are Indiana, Maryland, Rutgers, Minny, and NW.  I would like to think that we should be recruiting against OSU, PSU, and Wisconsin.

04/13/2018 - 6:39pm He said he lost all his scholarship offers

so it had to be his HS coach.  The doctors didn't tell the coach anything because most HS are lucky to be able to afford an AT yet alone a doctor.  I won't say what I think of those who recruited him if he felt it that necessary to play in that much pain to maintain a scholarship offer. It also makes you wonder where were the parents?  Mine would have benched me immediately if I was in that much pain.

04/12/2018 - 8:53pm Good landing spot?

Unless Kelly is changing the offense he has run in college this is the equivalent of Threet at QB with RichRod.

04/11/2018 - 4:37pm Serviceable?

That's a matter of opinion. If you have hardly seen the floor in two years you are probably in over your head.  Fouling out in 7 seven minutes against Detroit Mercy (Mo didn't play so he was the backup) indicates that to me.  That is just my take.  I do hope Austin proves me wrong next season it would be good for the team.
