This is a take that comes up from time to time since Erik Swenson's offer was essentially rescinded prior to the 2016 signing day, and it's usually wrong.

It seems pretty clear Harbaugh's offers, especially to lower rated players, are contingent upon roster, grades, team needs, and continued improvement on the player's part.

If Warren was meeting all the criteria he would remain in the 2020 class. If Harbaugh thought he had a gem in Warren he would remain in the class. He's not remaining in the class. It will be OK for all parties involved. He has the entire 2020 recruiting cycle to find a proper fit and if he's a kid and recruit worth having, he will.

Thanks for this info. Good stuff.

This article did a great job of answering most of my questions. Thanks for posting it.

As a Maryland alum, I am satisfied with this firing. Time to move on and up (or hopefully at least sideways).

Hard to argue with that one.

2. All of…

1. 32 and male.

2. All of them and every year since 2000-ish except when I was in Afghanistan, and even then I know I caught a few regular season games and the bowl game.

3. My significant other is completely cool with it because I made it clear at the beginning of our relationship (10 years now) it was nonnegotiable. I make an effort to do the things she wants to do the rest of the weekend when reasonable and we share the same pro-team fandom, so our Sunday’s revolve around the same team. I’ve taken her to 1 Michigan game in person (@ Purdue - we were traveling) and she enjoyed it.

You made the mistake of not making clear to her at the beginning of the relationship that missing Michigan games wasn’t negotiable (I’m assuming it’s not since you’re posting this), and now you’re paying the price. I have many friends who have gone down that same broken road, when it was so easily avoidable.

I’m not sure you can make it retroactively nonnegotiable but it’s worth a shot if that’s how you feel. If it IS negotiable, negotiate it at your peril.

CAVEATS: I don’t have many other indulgences that women dislike. Don’t smoke, play video games, drink excessively, go out with the “bros” overly frequently, etc. So it’s easier to have the indulgences I enjoy most.

I’ll simplify his point for you.

All defensive linemen are not dumb but most linemen who are dumb end up on defense.

My thinking exactly. It's a goldmine run by men with an aversion to mining.

Pay the mods something, anything, and they will do much better. You NEVER accept service for free because it will ALWAYS be bad service. Pay someone $1 a week before you pay them nothing. This is business 101.

It's like none of the people running or contributing this site have an ounce of business acumen. You're making either/or choices that aren't at all.

I'm consistently baffled by how poorly this site is run. Brian and the guys put out fantastic content and seem cool but they run this site as though they detest the very "customers" they presumably rely on for income. If Brian hired a business guy to actually run this site he could make a killing and probably have less stress. I can think of 10 ways off the top of my head he could monetize this place while still gaining traffic.

Honestly, I should just buy this fucking place. 

06/02/2018 - 11:54pm Every one of his coaches

Every one of his coaches seems to imply he’s a talented but emotional head case. His quote about getting upset when he doesn’t make a play sounds like text book “I throw fits on the sideline when I don’t get the ball” double speak.

05/25/2018 - 8:46pm I gotta find the post from

I gotta find the post from years ago where I predicted Ways would be a bust after seeing him and his QB Tyler Wiegers play. I also said Wiegers wasn’t a quality D1 prospect or something to that effect and got flamed pretty hard. A quick google search turned up an interesting nugget about Wiegers transferring to Eastern Michigan that I must have missed at the time: http://www.thegazette.com/subject/sports/college/football/qb-wiegers-le…

I know he hasn’t been at Wisconsin for a while but if he can get Michigan’s o-line mauling like Wisconsin’s is against Miami tonight, I’ll be very happy with this hire.

Exactly. Thank you for this.

This kid has something special. The usual “level of competition is low” caveats apply but this kid can play, and just think about when he’s focusing on football full-time.

This comment doesn’t make any sense.

12/02/2017 - 11:24am Awesome logic. Michigan

Awesome logic. Michigan doesn’t need more options at quarterback, which would help mitigate injury concerns, they just need to make sure their quarterbacks never get hurt, which is impossible to control. You should be running Toys R Us.

Karan seems like such a great kid and deserves all the credit in the world, but wow, what a mom! She’s a hero in every sense of the word. A fantastic example for every parent.

It's mainly to distinguish players from each other both for opposing teams and the refs.

I grew up in the U.P. There is a very large concentration of MSU grads up there. When Michigan lost to MSU I had to hear about it every day at school until Michigan eventually won again. A full year or longer of taunts from your mouth breathing MSU fan classmates is infuriating.

There are zero OSU fans in the U.P., so losing to them didn't have the same stakes on a personal level for me.

NobodyI know is really talking about it, not even my Michigan fan friends. I don't think it's making the impact on regular fans that it's supposed to make on the players and recruits. We're not the intended audience.

I specifically dialed back my ESPN content consumption when it became clear they were advocating for liberal political positions. Others I know did the same. There's some anecdotal evidence for you.

Golic, Herbstreit, and Van Pelt all have their own strengths. They should stay. Kanell is refreshingly direct. He should stay.

Genuinely talented and funny man. He will be missed.

04/10/2017 - 4:18pm Your claim that McKeon hasn't

Your claim that McKeon hasn't played is incorrect. He played in 4 games last season as a true freshman. He even caught two passes in the game vs Hawaii. A simple Google search would have clarified that for you.

I also don't blame Reese for going to Florida. If early enrollment and a guaranteed focus on linebacker were requirements for his services then Florida was obviously the better fit. It's a bit rich to say the kid was "All Blue" though, when he turned down a full scholarship offer for another school. That's not "All Blue" where I come from.
