Micah Parsons is a defensive end not a defensive tackle

Who didn't OSU get?  They have Vincent and Togiai already.  I don't remember them missing any of their top targets.

Maybe the example for YMRMFSPA is due for an update as well?  Kaleb Ringer has been off the team for about 5 years.

The Notre Dame game is courtesy of Warde - not Brandon.

10/16/2017 - 1:32pm Connor Cook and Trace

Connor Cook and Trace McSorley were decent to good quarterbacks, Michigan's quarterbacks have been a dumpster fire.

Or that we replaced 10 starters on defense and the only bummer was the former number 1 recruit in the county was only really good instead of great?

Other way around - his mother did not want him to go to Michigan State, and he really did. She held off signing the LOI on signing day in the hopes of convincing him not to go to State

So which recruits that are left are even eligible for sleeper of the year? Mason, Taylor and Robbins?

Excellent!  I love when the recruiting posts start up.  I forget the rules though - what is the cut off for sleeper of the year? Can only be a 4 star on one recruiting service and a 3 star to the rest?

04/19/2017 - 5:07pm 8 guys between Michigan and Notre Dame

The side note said  "Mayfield makes it eight guys so far who have probably been down to Michigan and ND. Five of those have gone ND's way, with Christian Turner currently the Michigan win."

I think I have 4 of the Notre Dame wins (same as last year) figured out: Kalon Gervin, Markese Stepp, and the Ademilola twins, but who is the last one?

Also Are you thinking Ryan Hayes and Jalen Mayfield are the two remaining battles? Or were you thinking Shayne Simon instead of Hayes?

04/11/2017 - 2:38pm My first hockey game was an

My first hockey game was an exhibition game against Guelph to start the 1998-99 season.  Even though it was an exhibition game - it was a great introduction to the crowds at yost.  One guy in particular made so much fun of the name "Guelph" by the third period he even got to the Guelph goalie.  

 

Hey ref - it's your mom...

Great interview - although I would be scared to be on his daughter's swim team:

 

But now I have an 8-year-old daughter that's in swimming and I'm a swim dad and it's about us. It's "we." We have swim practice today. We have to get better. We have to improve our backstroke. We got to make sure we're there on time. And I just had an epiphany: with the eight-and-unders, I'm going to coach them like I do my own players. Not treat my kids any different than my own players; and not treat my players any different than my own kids. Enough of the: Don't put pressure on them, and don't try to make them be good. I had an epiphany and I'm going the other way.

03/08/2017 - 6:20pm OG Anunoby despite the injury

OG Anunoby despite the injury is also a strong possiblity to leave Indiana early.

If you name was Michael Bolton you might add a middle initial so you wouldn't be confused with that no-talent ass clown.

This is probably very realistic but feels like it would be a let down after the caliber of recruits from the last two classes.

01/18/2017 - 3:38pm It was in garbage time but

It was in garbage time but the only answer for me is Walter cross against Syracuse in 1998. Cross ended the game with 104 yards and 2 touchdowns on just 10 carries. Career numbers - 125 carries for 489 yards and 4 touchdowns.

Cross is boss!

I'm not sure if Magnus has ever given out a 99 but Peppers and Gary both got 100s.

24 true seniors or 5th year seniors seems way off - the mgoblog depth chart by class lists 17.

11/01/2016 - 3:34pm UCLA is that team for me - I

UCLA is that team for me - I went to the 2000 Michigan UCLA game and the Rose Bowl was unbelievealby hot and there was no water availalbe in our section.  On top of that the game was brutal - I had to look up how bad freshman Narvarre was that game - 8 for 28 with 111 yards passing and an interception - and derailed what could have been a national championship season - the three losses  that season were by a combined 7 points - UCLA 23-20, Purdue 32-31 and the famous Northwestern game - 54-51.

More recently UCLA has strangely been Michigan's big competiion for a number of recurits (KLS and Rosen esp) and Jim Mora Jr just annoys me.

I am always delighted to see a UCLA loss scroll across the ticker.

10/18/2016 - 11:54am And Drake Harris isn't one of

And Drake Harris isn't one of them!  With a combined 1 catch for Harris and Ways, I assume it is an easy sell to WR recruits like DPJ and Collins about early playing time next year.

10/18/2016 - 11:42am I agree with all of this and

I agree with all of this and that gives me a sad FEELINGSBALL.  Now I am looking forward to the defense midseason expectations reset in which I will cackle with glee.

 

09/28/2016 - 3:43pm Last drive notes

I should be 42-10 not 42-0, it just felt like it was 42-0 at that point.

08/04/2016 - 1:42pm The change in the program in

The change in the program in the last year and a half is amazing.  If you would have told me the day Hoke was fired people would be upset at "only" being ranked 8th in the 2016 pre-season poll I would have laughed.   Harbaugh has totally rebuilt the program and now the team gets to prove it on the field in a month.  Who's got it better than us?

08/02/2016 - 3:42pm I like the Jumpman logo in

I like the Jumpman logo in the letter.  I was kind of hoping Harbaugh would sign it "yours in football"

07/29/2016 - 12:49pm Is this the first

Is this the first confirmation that Peppers missed this game with a broken hand?  I feel like the coaches all dodged how he got hurt and the extent of the injury leading up to the bowl game.

Man - that link to "Florida's 10 most wanted" three weeks before signing day is a sad sight for Florida fans. Florida signed 1 - only 1 - of the 10 guys on the list!  Florida State signed 3 of them.

06/02/2016 - 1:23pm Lots of place cheat and lots

Lots of place cheat and lots of places are dishonest - it is still very hard to win a national championship, let alone 4.  You don't have to like Saban but you should still be impressed with what he has done at Alabama.

05/24/2016 - 4:48pm "Michael Dwumfour is probably

"Michael Dwumfour is probably destined to be known as Rashan Gary’s sidekick for the duration of his career at Michigan."  

I know this to be true because I saw Dwumfour's profile and immediately thought - the next one is Gary!  I then proceeded to try and guess the YMRMFSPA for Gary, before turning back to read Dwumfour's profile.

05/03/2016 - 4:31pm From Seth's post when Battle

From Seth's post when Battle committed to Syracuse:

 

"Michigan was hard after both Battle and similarly ranked (just outside top 10) Alabama SF Josh Langford, and Battle pulled the trigger in May when it appeared Langford was about to take that option away from him. Beilein apparently thought that decision was earnest enough that he cut off pursuit of Langford, who committed to Michigan State three days after Battle reopened his recruitment"

05/03/2016 - 3:22pm So glad Beilein turned away

So glad Beilein turned away Josh Langford - then he would only have one open roster spot now. 

Does 3 transfers in one year tank the APR or is Michigan still fine there?

Wait - at the start of the thread you said "I can count on my hands the number of times I've shed tears as an adult, and when it has happened no one saw it.  Not my wife or my kids," was your wife not at the ultrasound with you?
