The recruiting services love over rank elite athletes, because its the one thing that you can't teach. Much easier to teach a 6'3" fireball how to catch a football than its to teach a route technician how to run a 4.3. About half of these guys pan out and the other half are busts, but ones that stick end up being first round draft picks.

SCHEME: Score points and then more points.

Is this based on specific info?

Let's not be coy. Title IX doesnt prevent players from being able to exploit their own likeness or to receive compensation from someone outside of the university. That's simply an NCAA decision to ban the compensation of athletes - something that wouldn't apply to a scholarship math student or any other student on campus.

You don't recognize the bad guy from Robocop?

|01/08/2019 - 3:58pm||We rotate a lot of guys on…||
We rotate a lot of guys on the DL, i dont think who it really matters who starts - Smith and Hinton seems poised to get solid PT. On the safety side, it will be interesting to see if Dax can lock down a starter role right away.
|01/08/2019 - 3:54pm||If memory serves, Ambry got…||
If memory serves, Ambry got a few snaps at WR this season. It doesnt seem like that will be the plan for Ambry long term and it probably won't be for Dax either, but I dont think it hurts to promise a player like that an opportunity to get a taste on offense if that's something that they are interested in.

I'm probably just an old man yelling at a cloud, but this halftime show is awful.
|01/07/2019 - 9:23pm||The era of defense winning…||
The era of defense winning championships is clearly over. Nick Saban going for it on 4th down from his own 35 yard line in the second quarter?
These are two of the best defenses in the country and its like watching a Big 12 shootout.

Might be time to cycle off the roids there buddy.

Desmond and Charles are #1A and #1B and Shoelace is #2.
|01/05/2019 - 5:58pm||Curious to know why you…||
Curious to know why you think he would be wasted at viper? Viper is kinda a marquee play-making role in Don Brown's defense, so I can understand why someone with his altheticism would get a long look there. The only thing that jumps out at me is the bigger need at the safety position given our current roster.
|01/05/2019 - 3:30pm||This is Jim Harbaugh's…||
This is Jim Harbaugh's offense regardless of who designing plays or who has primary responsibility making gametime play calling decisions. Pep is running Jim's offense, not Pep's offense. That said, I would love to see us bring in an offensive coordinator who can install a modern college offense at Michigan. If that happens, I dont care if Pep stays on as co-offensive passing game coordinator or QB coach or whatever else.

Doesn't Warriner have a son at MSU? Why would he move to Alabama to take a lateral position?

From your lips to Harbaugh's ears:
“I think he’s as smart as they come,” Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables said of Saban. “I think he said, ‘These are the things that hurt us, so let’s do it to them.’ ”
|01/03/2019 - 4:59pm||I'm not sure that's a…||
I'm not sure that's a problem with this offense. We already love to run on downs where everyone knows its going to be run, so it might as well to get the best runner onto the field.

You say this as if we dont already have a former offensive coordinator from OSU on our staff.

Texas looks so fired up and well prepared that its almost like no one ever told them that bowl games are meaningless.
|01/01/2019 - 1:18pm||I love CP as much as anybody…||
I love CP as much as anybody, but what qualifies him to be DC at Michigan when he's never coordinated a defense in his life? CP could very well be a future star, but his entire coaching career has been under Don Brown. Do people really think that he has somehow eclipsed Don Brown as a defensive coach while working under him for the past 3 years?

I'm not sure if they burn, but im pretty sure you can poop on them.
|12/30/2018 - 9:24pm||I really have no idea why…||
I really have no idea why people here somehow became convinced that Mineral King is Shea Patterson.
|12/30/2018 - 3:20pm||Perhaps, but the defensive…||
Perhaps, but the defensive coaches have been flat out better at developing the talent that Harbaugh inherited than on the offensive side of the ball. The offensive talent that Harbaugh inherited was not far behind the defensive talent recruiting rankings wise. The big difference is the that defense seems to regularly turn 3 star recruits into drafted NFL players, while the high-ranked offensive recruits that we managed to get seem to frequently end up as busts or transfers.
|12/30/2018 - 12:27am||Where would they go? None of…||
Where would they go? None of the players mentioned are eligible to enter the NFL draft until after the 2019 season.

Shea Patterson was a 5 star.

Its the coaches fault that players cant wait to go and make millions of dollars in the NFL?

This makes total sense, which means the NCAA will never do it.

Intresting take about a team that has 3 different players currently banned for using PEDs.
|12/29/2018 - 5:29pm||I think we have to come to…||
I think we have to come to terms with the fact that this defense cant really defend teams with any real speed on offense.
The defense actually made a lot of plays today - I bet you will see a lot of good defensive plays on the UFR. But all of the good was erased by a few big plays given up to blown coverages or a single missed tackle than ended up going for 50+
|12/29/2018 - 5:18pm||After the touchdown pass to…||
After the touchdown pass to Tarik Black was overturned, he was on the sideline looking like his whole world had just ended. I can understand being upset with missing an opportunity to make a play, but he really looked awful. I really hope he is okay and there is not anything more going on there.
|12/29/2018 - 11:35am||I can't think of a dumber…||
I can't think of a dumber thing to post on game day. Moms please delete.

Apparently it doesn't matter, as I recently learned that bowl games are meaningless.
|12/24/2018 - 9:31pm||Ostarine is not illegal in…||
Ostarine is not illegal in the U.S. Neither are testosterone or "real" steroids. They are banned by the NCAA and most sports bodies, but they are not illegal for regular individuals to possess or use.
|12/24/2018 - 9:27pm||This is the definitely the…||
This is the definitely the best advice. Give your daughter a chance to fully explore her options. Both are excellent schools. Figure what the true cost of attendance at Princeton will be after financial aid before making a cost comparison.
I grew up in Ann Arbor and always planned to attend UM, but was admitted to an Ivy as well (Penn/Wharton). I still planned on going to UM, but then I visited Penn campus and just fell in love with it.
If you get to the point where the cost of attendance is close, then try to give her the chance to decide. The only thing that you will regret is forcing to make a choice without having the chance to fully evaluate both options.
|12/24/2018 - 9:15pm||SARMs are a very mild…||
SARMs are a very mild steroids, with Ostarine being the mildest of the popular SARMs (milder than Ligandrol). So no, they were not juicing to a crazy degree, but it is also highly unlikely that they somehow ended up taking it by mistake. Dabo trying to say that i could have come from hair cream is laugh out loud funny.

If this happens, ill eat nothing but lemons for an entire day and film the whole thing. Somebody screenshot this.

I'm pretty sure "There's something funny going on down there." was a riff on "Follow the balls." but ok.

Damn you Brutus.
|12/18/2018 - 4:39pm||Corner a bit scary to me,…||
Corner a bit scary to me, espcially given the kind of schemes that Don Brown likes to run. The best case scenario is that Ambry Thomas has a breakout season and we find a reasonable #2 CB, but what are we going to do next year when OSU tries to pick on our #3 CB all day again?
I think we'll be fine at Linebacker, but almost anyone will be a step back from Devin Bush.
Same at DE - Uche/Paye showed a lot of promise this year, but it will be damn hard to replace Gary/Winovich. But the silver lining of Gary being out for long streches of the year is that these guys had a chance to play and produce in some big games this year.
It not a sky is falling situation, but the defense seems likely to take a step back and we'll have to reset our expectation around having a defense that is good to very good, but not neccessarily dominant.

LMAO, i regret that i only have one upvote to give.
|12/18/2018 - 3:25pm||Losing the top 6 players on…||
Losing the top 6 players on defense along with 2-3 of the most promising underclassmen it seems reasonable to project that the defense could definitely take a step back next year. How much of a step back remains to be seen.
|12/18/2018 - 11:22am||Boss moves.||
|12/17/2018 - 2:02pm||Yoder doesnt have a press…||
Yoder doesnt have a press pass or press credentials, so he definitely hasnt been to a press conference. For the same reason, it is highly unlikely that he has ever had an official conversation with anyone on the coaching staff.
However, he definitely has built relationships with guys going through the recruiting process, some of whom have ended up on the team and who he probably keeps contact with. He has even one on one conversations with Rashan Gary's mom on the record:
So he's definitely got *some* inside info, but his hype and ego are way way out in front of whatever amount of inside info he really gets.
I actually think his rumor roundups are pretty useful, as it saves me time from trolling through hours of message board posts, but when he starts pumping himself up as the top insider he gets pretty hard to take seriously.
|12/16/2018 - 10:15pm||Looks like the Eagles may…||
Looks like the Eagles may have rediscovered their offense first.

Hope he's All Big Ten and officially inducted into the Order of St. Kovacs.
|12/15/2018 - 7:46pm||Not sure you understood the…||
Not sure you understood the question. The point was to figure how to get more future NFL players to play in their respective bowl games, not guarantee that none of them ever will.
|12/13/2018 - 3:07pm||Excellent news. Happy for…||
Excellent news. Happy for Temple for getting a great coach, but most importantly, happy that Don Brown is staying put.
