I, for one, feel like there's a lot of clicks & scrolling just to see new board posts when I'm on mobile. It's a firstworldproblem, but it's also more work than before. OTOH, this is a free site with amazing content and we're lucky to have it. The people that put work into it think this is better - so be it.

I hope those in charge of strategy are keeping in mind that alliances in risk only last as long as they are convenient.

It's possible, but we'll have to wait until the season after next to know if we can better next season.

"It's not close to the dominant efforts from higher seeds on this list, but it's also short of Michigan's potential."

I mean that's a pretty fair take to me. Michigan has not played anywhere near its level from the BTT.

Are there scholarship issues if Mo ends up staying though? I thought I read somewhere that we need an early exit or two just to accommodate the incoming class.

I put this in another thread but it's obviously more appropriate here:

There's a lot of misconceptions to unpack here.

Islay malts are not homogenous. I can really only think of one that regularly features band-aid notes and that's Laphroaig. While Islay is known for it's peat/smoky influence, not all islay malts use peat. Bunnahabhain mostly produces unpeated malt, for example. And importantly, there are MANY peated malts from outside of Islay, including (off the top of my head) Springbank/Longrow, Kilkerran, Ledaig, Talisker, Ardmore, Highland Park, Benromach, Benriach, Macallan...

Also, I completely disagree that smoke has anything to do with 'smoothness'. In fact, smoothness is a word that pretty much dissapears from the vocabularly of malt enthusiasts (especially when you discover the wonder that is cask strength); it's hard to find 'rough' anything at that level of quality distillation/maturation.

What is the perceived knock on Hurst that would keep him that low? I can't imagine he's going to compare unfavorably in stats or measurables.

If you wanted to scare recruits off from Meyer, you could make something up about how the slight adversity of one bad season would inspire him to fake a health condition and abandon his team for greener pastures. Oh, wait.

To be fair, the second part of the statement has kinda only been true for like 2 years.

Only the best for God. Seriously though, why do people always say "the best"? Why not ask for recommended places or something? "What is the best" just seems like an absurd question when you're talking about something nonspecific and subjective.

Thoughts from the board on "he seemed to get a raw deal at Michigan as he fell out of favor when it appeared that he would step into a prominent role." Mostly just the raw deal part.

Several of those explosive playmakers are true freshmen WRs. They might need a few games to get comfortable with the game and the offense before dividends are forthcoming.

Usually the next-level recommendation is to seek out the local alumni group. Decent chance there is one depending on the city. Maybe not Bahrain.
