Stephen A.?

01/05/2017 - 3:30pm Seemed a bit clear that it

Seemed a bit clear that it was Bama when he gave that interview to Scout a few days ago. When he said he'd just arrive on a campus instead of announcing, I said it makes sense to do that to the school & staff that already assumes your coming (being that he doesnt owe Michigan a reason that he's not there)....

 

...only reason we thought Michigan had a chance was because Sam Webb is solid w/ his info more often than not...and this was not of his times.

01/05/2017 - 2:39pm on top of that...never lose

on top of that...never lose sight of the fact that these recruiting sites benefit from these clicks, so they are more than willing to go for the ride, posting every rumor they hear...

01/05/2017 - 9:16am Lol...nope. I think you just

Lol...nope. I think you just about covered it.

Also, it sounds like a few of y'all would be surprised at how many of these kids talk like this when the cameras are down...including kids that have reputations as "high character" kids (Jourdan/Jabrill/etc)...

It doesn't say anything about his character positive or negative, other than him not having the awareness to clean it up when the phones are out...just how a lot of these kids talk & joke around...

The staff knows how to recruit & coach up d-lineman, tho. If there's any position I don't lose sleep about (as far as missing on a recruit), it's here. We'll be fine.

01/04/2017 - 1:57pm The Marshawn Lynch effect

The Marshawn Lynch effect (from the same area too...)

He's obviously having fun with this, while also probably realizing how ridiculious this whole recruiting business is...

01/04/2017 - 11:58am Though this doesn't seem to

Though this doesn't seem to mean anything...it's hard for me to imagine him showing up @ Michigan, leaving Bama's staff out to dry (especially the one that's considered a family friend). Would make more sense that Michigan gets that's treatment, being that he doesn't owe any of them a reason he didn't show up.

His interview w/ Scout the other day also makes me think it's still Bama...on the other hand, it's also hard for me to believe Sam Webb would project Harris in this class if he didn't feel strongly about what he's hearing (even if it's not a gut feeling)...

...so I guess I'm in the same boat as the rest in saying, fingers crossed, but I've believe it when I see it.

06/10/2016 - 8:06am Now that Michigan's brand is

Now that Michigan's brand is as strong as it's been a good while, ND wants to piggyback off us? Having them on a our schedule benefits them more than us at this point. That school showed just how much respect they had for this rivalry w/ how they handled this situation last time around (handing a letter on the field). F**k them lol...

 

seriously though, it was/is a great rivalry...but i'm over it. *shrugs*

01/04/2016 - 10:56pm I usually try to stay away

I usually try to stay away from the "he's well spoken" shit for obvious reasons, but in the instance, the kid obviously has his head on his shoulders.

 

Somebody posted a link to his Twitter the other day when Michigan beat Florida (he had some positive things to say), so I read through his timeline a bit. From it, you can definitely tell he's one of those "student of the game" types.

 

Even beyond the physical talent, he would be a great addition to the locker room.

12/29/2015 - 7:03pm ...except that in the pro

...except that in the pro style, the players make the system. With this Baylor offense, it's clearly the other way around.

12/15/2015 - 12:14pm I think everybody deserves a

I think everybody deserves a second chance, and know for a fact that good people can make bad/irrational decisons...so I don't have much of a problem on that front.

 

My bigger concern is more of, that situation could easily be negatively recruited against, no? Especially kids w/ overprotecting (for lack of a better word) parents. If the recruiting battle is close, could be enough to sway against...

12/02/2015 - 2:54pm YEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH

YEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH BAAAAABY

11/30/2015 - 3:48pm ...and it turns out Xavier

...and it turns out Xavier might just be really good this year.

11/30/2015 - 3:03pm The first time the words "Rob

The first time the words "Rob Schneider" & "hilarious" have been used in conjunction in close to 20 years now...

11/30/2015 - 2:56pm Wait a minute, Chesson &

Wait a minute, Chesson & Amara still have eligibility left??? Why is this news to me? I do remember Amara getting missing most of a season earlier in his career, but I thought he played in too many games that year...

 

 

11/25/2015 - 1:45pm Definitely a clean look

...Hopefully these "special" jerseys can boost defensive attributes like in old school video games...

11/25/2015 - 1:42pm "Fuck it" - Desmond Howard

Nah, can't watch it yet. Waiting until Saturday morning leading up to the game to watch it has been the recent tradition for me.

 

That was a very well done doc. HBO usually knocks them out the park.

Why won't they just put a studium on campus? That seems to be one of the biggest complaints I hear out of that area regarding attendance...

10/21/2015 - 10:34am Gotta pay attention to the

Gotta pay attention to the targets. Burbridge had damn near 20 targets in that game. MSU's offense is designed for the X WR to get the majority of the looks, but that's still too much, considering they do have several playmakers @ the position (Kings did drop several, though).

 

With that being said, it's pretty much impossible to determine a "clear" winner there. It was pretty much a draw....and it was also the best WR/CB battle I've seen in college football this decade. Not hyperbole. That appealed to everything I love about football and why I miss playing it.

10/16/2015 - 6:40pm there is definitely a little,

there is definitely a little, um, "brother" joke to be made there....

10/16/2015 - 12:47am Jehu Chesson will be open

Jehu Chesson will be open deep....

 

ALL GAME.

 

Ruddock, you only have one job.

 

Most intriguing UM/MSU matchup since....? Honestly can't remember a more important game between the two. Can't wait for Saturday.

10/14/2015 - 8:50pm Nah, this has been the works

Nah, this has been the works for a minute. He'll end up in Lansing.

10/14/2015 - 5:51pm That's why I said "with the

That's why I said "with the exception of their last game"...

 

Re-reading that, though....yikes @ the errors in that post, lol. Might be my worst....

10/14/2015 - 5:29pm Damon Webb (who I believe is

Damon Webb (who I believe is related to Sam Webb, it seems), is struggling down there as well. Might not be back with the team for the rest of the year.

10/14/2015 - 4:52pm It does feel like this year's

It does feel like this year's MSU team is the type to play up or down to the level of it's competition. With the exception of thier last game, they had complete control of pretty much every game with the chance to blow it open, and just let the opposing team hang around.

 

That offense can make plays when it needs to. Feels like Cook is capable of doing what he did last week (350+) whenever they need him to.

 

There is no "on/off" switch for that defense, though. They've lost their most constant player of Defense before the season started (Davis), most athletic CB (Copeland), most experienced DB (Williamson), and the player who was getting potential All-American hype has been a bust for them (Montae N.). And they don't recruit at an elite level, so the depth isn't there to overcome that type of shit.

 

The Narduzzi thing is overplayed, that defense fell off big time last year (they won because their offense averaged 45pts a game). Narduzzi is/was a great coach, but those Defense's were great because they unearthed some gems. They ran out of gems. It was going to happen eventually...

 

Biggest concern is: MSU's biggest weakness is in that horrible secondary. They can be beat deep. The biggest flaw in Ruddock's play so far? Exactly. He'll have the exact same players breaking free in the secondary as he did in the Utah game. He has to make those plays for UM to win.

Rutgers has gone full New Jersey....

 

 

.....You NEVER go full-New Jersey.

09/15/2015 - 9:11pm When I'm talking about the

When I'm talking about the brand being once again at the forefront of CFB, I'm obviously not talking about on-field play. We're obviously a couple years away from being where we want in that regard....

 

but there was a certain coaching hire that made UM about as talked-about & relevant of a program as there is, and it just feels convenient that now ND realizes the importance of the rivalry, when just a couple years ago, it apparently wasn't a "historic, traditional rivalry" at all (according to Kelly).

09/15/2015 - 9:03pm That is what I said.
 
"they

That is what I said.

 

"they simply thought there were better opportunities to promote their brand."

 

=

 

"Swarbrick, with I assume input from Kelly, said It would be more valuable to play in Austin than in Ann Arbor"

 

Now that Michigan's brand is holding substantial weight again, all of sudden, ND wants to re-evaluate. Trust me, there is a correlation there.

09/15/2015 - 7:09pm Fuck Notre Dame

I don't think B. Kelly would feel the need to want Michigan back on the schedule if not for the recent attention/relevancy UM has reacquried. A part of why they decided to drop UM had to do with the shape the program was in at the time, and they simply thought there were better opportunities to promote their brand.

 

I don't think it's a coincidence that UM is back on people's minds, and all of a sudden, ND "remembers" how important a rivalry it is.

 

I used to be as pumped for the Mich/ND game as damn near any in college football, but with the way ND handled that entire situation (remember the letter on the field), I honestly wouldn't be mad if we never played them again.

09/09/2015 - 11:43am said earlier...

I've saying for a minute, Pitt has a better chance to land him than most think. From what I've heard, he wants to play early. MSU (who has been considered the frontrunner) has a PG that Izzo is in love with (Narin), and Cassius game isn't suited to play off-the-ball like Trice did whenever they played together.

 

Pitt's staff has deep Detroit connections, and has been trying to build a pipeline to the city.  Izzo could've went to visit Winston because of him rumblings of Cass-to-Pitt (why else would he show up? Cassius has an official to MSU on Saturday). Wouldn't be surprised Cassius landed at Pitt at all.

09/06/2015 - 7:58pm Eh.

Whether a not a team is competitive vs an out-of-conference team that is considered above, beneath or equal to them is far more indicative of how good a conference is, than just looking at a W-L column...

 

Nebraska lost on a damn Hail Mary. That's not an indictment on the B1G. Both teams were pretty much equal, and one team made one more play. The Penn State game would be more alarming, with the assumption by some that they were going to be decent this year.

 

...but even if, say, PSU won a bunch of games in the B1G, that shouldn't automatically say that the B1G sucks either. It is possible for teams to improve over the course of the season. People need to look at these things with more nuance, instead of building these naratives.

09/04/2015 - 5:17pm um...what are these fucking

um...what are these fucking "numbers" that Derrick Green is alluding to? A 500yd season is enough to hand you the job? *Bill Maher voice* New Rule: You're not entitled to carries if we haven't seen you break an arm tackle or stiff arm ONE defender since suiting up.

You now understand what these coaches mean by "de-recruiting" a kid once he lands on campus...

09/04/2015 - 5:11pm Can Jabrill play QB? Because

Can Jabrill play QB? Because that's the only reason to have him out there right now. We had enough players who can make plays w/ the ball in their hands last night (btw, 1st time in a while that our screen plays actually worked).

 

Peppers needs to master his own position before we should consider putting too much on his plate...

 

Really enjoyed the enthusiasm he showed late in the game (Utah was already up 2 TDs) when he came up and made the play. Started to get more comfortable as the game went on, and was able to make reads/plays in the backfield off instincts.

09/04/2015 - 5:03pm Mike Hart actually was coming

Mike Hart actually was coming on in Indy before injuries...wouldn't have been surprised if he ended up with a couple 1K yard seasons...

 

as far as Derrick Green is concerned...hate to keep beating a dead horse, but there were several scouts who weren't sold on him coming out of HS...and his HS film defiinitely wasn't that of a "Top RB In The Country". He wasn't running thru contact or hitting homeruns then, and the excuse was "he plays in VA, which has some of the best competition in HS"...

09/04/2015 - 12:06am Pretty much what we

Pretty much what we knew/feared.

 

Rudock at his best is serviceable. At his worst, he's what we saw when we played Iowa a couple of years ago: FUCKING HORRIBLE. That's just what we have to deal with this year. Just ride it out until Brandon Peters gets on campus.

 

I was actually more concerned with the running game. That was supposed to further along by now. Ty Issac looked like the RB with the most pop. Seemed like Derrick Green is 4th on the depth chart right now, which is probably best.

 

Positives: Jake Butt is a star, Our WR's were open throughout the game, Pass protection was really good (for the most part).

09/03/2015 - 7:21pm The basement for this team

The basement for this team should be 7-5....but I actually feel as like tonights game can go a long way for confidence wise.

If we win this game, I could honestly see us rolling thru the non-conference schedule & going 10-2 (OSU & MSU are the only teams on the schedule with more talent).

08/31/2015 - 11:12am Will is tryna chase after

Will is tryna chase after that Oscar, huh? Gotta give him props for actually not playing the same damn character for the first time in a while...

08/26/2015 - 7:15pm Trust me, not a damn soul

Trust me, not a damn soul would've complained if you decided to make this essay length. Great read.

 

A fullback going in the first round....it's amazing how much the game has changed.

08/23/2015 - 10:15pm Right. I don't agree with his

Right. I don't agree with his point tho. MSU's defense last year was the weakest it's been in the past few years. Just because they were ripped up by Oregon/OSU/Baylor last year isn't an indictment on their D throughout Dantonio's tenure.

 

With that being said, there is a significant chance they are horrible in their secondary (for their standards, anyway) this year. Their front seven could have had a chance to be the best in the country, but that was dependent largely on Ed Davis having an All-American year (Calhoun & Waynes got the most hype, but Davis was their most consistant player on D last year).

 

Like last year, they will need to average 45+ a game to contend..

08/22/2015 - 10:21pm Haven't bought a Madden game

Haven't bought a Madden game in several years. They've gotten extremely lazy with their product once EA obtained exclusivity, imo.

 

Would love to see NFL 2K come back in a few years, if for nothing else, competition pushes these companies to produce the best. product

08/22/2015 - 8:23am There was a lot of chatter

There was a lot of chatter about Evans a while ago, but it's seems to have died down. Is he still solid?

08/03/2015 - 10:48pm You sure it was the Fab 48?

You sure it was the Fab 48? Bridges only played in 2 games there with 1Nation, and was dominant in both (outplayed Josh Jackson)...and their team won the tourney.

 

Miles played in Chris Paul's event and dominated Jayson Tatum head-to-head, and also destroyed Harry Giles' team.

 

Most national scouts will tell you Miles has had arguably the most dominant summer of any player in the country.

 

Him being on campus should be a bigger deal...it's not only because of Michigan's horrible with its last couple of high profile guys (Jaylen Brown/Battle/Langford).

07/23/2015 - 10:41pm Wait, Colin finally went full-racist?

Cowherd's whole ESPN career has been him race-baiting, and then talking himself out of it. I guess he just said "fuck it" on his way out...

07/23/2015 - 10:38pm A lot of kids from Detroit

A lot of kids from Detroit who have an opportunity to attend college area usually up at Tuskegee (grew up with several)...should be a comfortable enviornment for him down there. Wish the best to him.

07/17/2015 - 1:18pm Easy to forget, but that kid

Easy to forget, but that kid was thought to have great potential coming out of HS, he was "can't miss" in some eval's eyes.

 

I hope things work out of him, whether it be on the field or off.

07/16/2015 - 11:27am uh, no...YOU missed the point...

The point Plax is making is: Saban is a fucking hypocrite for criticizing kids for thinking about & making plans based on their futures when college coaches (like Saban) do the same thing all the fucking time (ex. coaches leaving for another job before the season ends... all the while selling current kids, recruits and the fan base wolf tickets up until that point knowing they will be out the door soon).

 

The millionaire coach gets to think about & make decisions based on his future all the time, but when a college kid does it, it's a problem? Isn't Saban's job to um, COACH through that? That's what these guys get paid for, right?

07/05/2015 - 10:25pm A max deal for Jackson? I

A max deal for Jackson? I know the cap goes up, but damn...

 

I was one of the few who thought Stanley Johnson projected to the next level better than Winslow did. Hollis-Jefferson was saying recently he thought Johnson's game was more suited for the pro game than in college. People forget was playing alongside no one who could create offense at Zona (and Miller hasn't had a good offense since...???), meanwhile Winslow had all the room in the world to operate alongside the best low post scorer in college, the best pure-PG in college, and sniper to stretch the court (Cook). Johnson would've looked every bit as good (or better) if you swapped them out...

07/05/2015 - 6:04pm lmao....*parity*

"parody?"

 

 

 

Yes, parody. You heard me right muthafucka....
