He's 9 and he knows already where he wants to go?

continue to encourage and support, sounds like this is a kid who will chart his own path

Some experience with WC, agreeing this is the most likely avenue.

Write down everything (sounds like you are already doing so) and date each record.

Continue to monitor the company's handling of everything, take care of your wife and if you are thinking of legal action, take advantage of the free consultations that many firms provide.

12/11/2018 - 10:50pm I don't think the …

I don't think the "overlooking" explains all of it.  OSU was a different team at home this year, and their players looked vastly different even at home against us.  Given Meyer's history I wouldn't be surprised if the enhanced performance was indeed, enhanced.  Then again they have an NFL talent at QB and there was clearly an effort to mask some of his ability, Gerd took up the refrain, Michigan fans noted and hoped it was true,  It wasn't.

Interesting post.  Neb, PSU and MSU had inferior seasons this year.  You stop it.

12/11/2018 - 10:43pm You have something here,…

You have something here, Shaken, I do believe that as far as the fanbases go anyway, they do hate us more. I have several interesting travel stories about treatment from Buckeye waiters when they see Maize and Blue on a customer, the Bucknuts do not get reciprocal experience.  Heck Brady Hoke invited the cancer victim who named his cancer "Michigan" so he could echo his parents' hatred, to a game here.

Totally irrational reaction.

Let me try and explain.

See, if we go 0 and 10.... then no way do we....

ah forget it if that's what you believe I'm wasting my time

12/11/2018 - 10:37pm I like you Hatter but I don…

I like you Hatter but I don't agree that OSU wanted it more or worked harder.

if you have some evidence from Michigan players or coaches to the contrary, that would be instructive.  I just can't go along with that meme that "they wanted it more."

There are reasons for the failure and I trust the coaching staff is examining them.

12/11/2018 - 10:34pm how do you, or how does…

how do you, or how does anyone, know what the coaches do to prepare or how much film they watch. Why do so many people assume they have the answer flowing from their fingers to the keyboard and that somehow the coaching staff doesn't know this magic ingredient.

Football doesn't work that way, life doesn't work that way

What has he got to show for it?

Are you serious?

12/11/2018 - 4:08pm I think Sam is also being…

I think Sam is also being careful with his wording, as befits his access and contact with recruits and their families.  You can't blame him for doing so, and maintaining his integrity.  

12/11/2018 - 4:04pm He doesn't have to save face…

He doesn't have to save face.  Sam will usually try to provide all the nuances especially when he has callers lined up.  He's really good at providing counter while being cordial.

I couldn't do his job, honestly I'd hang up on half the people and get fired.

12/11/2018 - 3:59pm And you made sure to troll…

And you made sure to troll the board - as usual

12/10/2018 - 10:01pm If so we'll know why

If so we'll know why

12/10/2018 - 9:47pm There was apprehension in…

There was apprehension in Buckeyeland but I think they were gaining confidence with The Game being at home for them, and the odd development that was our Indiana game.

12/10/2018 - 3:46pm There was nothing from Sam's…

There was nothing from Sam's radio broadcast this morning (from around 8-8:30) that indicated bagmen, in fact he took pains to avoid saying that, came right out and SAID he wouldn't say that, and proceeded to entertain every other theory and possible reason why, from callers. 

He did say the family stopped being communicative after the flip.

I'll read most any thread that starts out with "One Positive"

12/09/2018 - 10:20pm Please feel free to rant…

Please feel free to rant more often.  You are not wrong.

I have been supporting this program for life and will continue to be supportive for what life I have left.  I will not bad mouth players and coaches.  It's really disheartening that the OSU game has resulted in people attacking instead of banding together. 

 

12/09/2018 - 12:57am well there's lots of slipups…

well there's lots of slipups, some of them well publicized, and the school was officially caught cheating and had to dial things back for a while.

The cheating didn't go away, although the optics certainly had to be addressed....so don't kid yourself about Bama's inherent and untouchable excellence. That's on par with Urban "redemption."  

They are good at what they do and cheating is part of it. The thing is, with today's money machine there is an honest debate as to what it really means to be cheating.

12/09/2018 - 12:49am So why didn't Gary go Bama…

So why didn't Gary go Bama/other SEC then?  Wouldn't he have had the same opportunity to win a lot, and go to the NFL?

Hill isn't confident that Michigan can win as many games, as we did with Gary?

How many wins is "a lot"?

12/09/2018 - 12:42am Then by your logic only one…

Then by your logic only one team in the country can get the top recruits, so again, might as well do things the right way, even if that results in a loss now and then.

Right?  Is that what you're trying to say?

12/09/2018 - 12:35am so i'm not understanding…

so i'm not understanding your comment.  We spent all this time preparing, and planning, and yet no matter what we did we would have been screwed because additional prep would not have mattered?  

 

12/09/2018 - 12:26am don't want Michigan to be…

don't want Michigan to be Alabama.  

12/09/2018 - 12:11am Can there be a resurrected…

Can there be a resurrected troll account that doesn't say "slappies" 

12/08/2018 - 11:23pm AK47,

Bama cannot, and does…

AK47,

Bama cannot, and does not, draft all the high star recruits they get.  The promise isn't of the NFL salary, it starts way before that so yes the payment structure is relevant.  You might even be right about why Daxton Hill flipped but it doesn't change the big picture.  And that picture isn't about the OSU game.  

Saban's bagmen network doesn't just deliver him the best talent, it keeps other schools from being able to mine the same talent.

12/08/2018 - 11:18pm Exactly Brutus.  I didn't…

Exactly Brutus.  I didn't believe this one either and I am so unhappy to have had my suspicious confirmed.  There's been enough precedent for sudden flips like this that I am even more grateful that Rashan Gary turned down the cash to come to Michigan.

12/08/2018 - 11:16pm Directly correlated to…

Directly correlated to bagmen.

12/08/2018 - 11:14pm Wrong Mr. King.  Alabama's…

Wrong Mr. King.  Alabama's locker room with waterfalls is like a five star luxury hotel, so no, I don't think that the dozens of schools you reference have the same amount of resources.

12/08/2018 - 11:10pm If being in the Top 10…

If being in the Top 10 embarrasses you guys then absolutely run away.

I love what Harbaugh is doing for our program and I love it even more that we're a top 10 team this year doing things the right way.

12/08/2018 - 11:06pm No, you are cherry picking…

No, you are cherry picking data points to support your hot take prior to the OSU game.

I don't know what you did to merit being gifted 2 million points and I don't care how many downvotes I get for saying it.

12/07/2018 - 12:31pm Good news!  Go Devin Bush!

Good news!  Go Devin Bush!

Thanks for all you've contributed!

Yep, Warde did this JUST right!

12/05/2018 - 11:05pm A "fluff" major at Michigan…

A "fluff" major at Michigan is still more work than at the other top football schools.  Yes, the players get help but that's a far cry from imaginary classes.

This is a great post WD!

Michigan Difference!

who is this "we" Kemosabe, you do know everyone can see your post history?

12/05/2018 - 10:49pm That's just deranged…

That's just deranged Smegmatic and your new account should be banned.  

It's not deranged because you're posing a thoughtful but difficult question, it's deranged because you are presenting a carefully selected scenario of strawmen and fantasy facts for which there is no comparable real world situation.

12/05/2018 - 12:33pm This is the most idiotic OSU…

This is the most idiotic OSU post I have ever seen (which is saying something).  Tressel was not an unknown quantity, he was already tight with the local bagman.. who was also on the BOT at YSU, go figure, corrupt culture much? and who also did time in prison (not for anything to do with football, I think it was fraud).   Tressel was already buying YSU players out of high school and he brought his winning formula with him to Columbus where it continued to work well.  Under his watch, there was no attempt to play school, as they invented classes such as Volleyball officiating, which no players were required to attend, just as the bagmen invented fake jobs they didn't have to attend.  

Look, be happy with your winning record.  OSU football is run very much like a professional organization more than a school, and I'm sure everyone in Ohio knows it and is fine with it.  Trying this cute "underdog winning" angle is laughable.  Almost more laughable than trying to defend Meyer's honor.  He's a scumbag with a winning W/L record.

12/05/2018 - 12:24pm Because OSU fans are not…

Because OSU fans are not arrogant at all.  No, not at all.

Humble in victory, no trolling of other fan base boards in search of insults against the Scarlet and Gray... not at all

OSU eventually fires all their HCs don't they...

That's the prediction from a Florida native I was talking to recently.

All of this does seem to have been planned in September.  

12/04/2018 - 12:29pm The Purdue loss was seen as…

The Purdue loss was seen as problematic; and likely would not have been mitigated with another garbage time TD.  Nor were they being "nice."  Meyer being nice, really?  

 

12/04/2018 - 12:15pm LOL Saban will never leave…

LOL Saban will never leave where he is.  When everyone sees a prized recruit's mom driving a new set of wheels and another recruit's entire family moves from Hawaii to Alabama all expenses paid and there is no consequence... Ohio may be closer to the South but it's not actually the South.

12/04/2018 - 12:08pm Yet another way OSU is more…

Yet another way OSU is more like the SEC teams.  High school football is not a statewide religion in Michigan.

12/04/2018 - 12:07pm Is Urban the recruiting…

Is Urban the recruiting magic?  Day wouldn't be on staff if he wasn't a top notch recruiter.  A few weeks ago I heard Sam Webb saying that Greg Mattison recruited Tebow for Meyer.

12/04/2018 - 12:02pm Not only do they give a damn…

Not only do they give a damn, Michigan defines their entire existence.  

12/04/2018 - 9:46am Good observation Paul Wall

Good observation Paul Wall

Also the momentum factor is magnified considerably at home field.  B1G officiating has been noticeably better this year - although we got smoked, officiating had nothing to do with it (solve one problem at a time I guess?) anyway I don't think Meyer wants any part of coming to Ann Arbor with a level officating field.  Good riddance to the scumbag successor of the scumbag Tressel.  

12/04/2018 - 9:36am The football machine is well…

The football machine is well oiled in Ohio (SEC North), I wonder if the increased scrutiny and scandals will make it any more difficult for that machine to operate.

I do not get,

Same thought.  There's a timeline to his injury recovery and he has been coping with it for more than a year while being double teamed and held on the field the whole time.  At this point he is well served to think about what's on the line for his future and plan accordingly.

Florida may put forth some interesting offense which I hope we will be ready for.

12/02/2018 - 10:58pm You may have some points…

You may have some points there, although, stating that our BIG opponents were weak, is all hindsight unless you said this in the beginning of the season, when everyone was saying that we had the toughest schedule in the country.  Wisconsin, MSU and PSU all looked worse than their rankings when we played them yet you won't give Michigan credit, you just dismiss every team we beat as being awful.
