Sam said Karlaftis was a beast at The Opening.

07/05/2018 - 8:37pm Lighten up Francis.



Lighten up Francis.


In all seriousness many of the playera are going to get a bump in ratings so it might be higher than you think.

Brian is inching toward being back to his old self.    This offensive recruiting class is very good.   

I don't think until we win at ND will he be all the way back but he's getting close.

My bad.  On a positive note that means the goon squad sweep possibilities are even stronger.    

07/05/2018 - 7:20am Trust the pic.  Goon Squad…

Trust the pic.  Goon Squad 19 had 8 players in it.  5 of them are committed.  3 left.  Dax Harrison, Dicosmo.   It's a lock.  Counterstrike.  Out.

The eye test tells you these results look pretty random.

As a Michigan fan I thought Hoke would be near the top as he seemed to win games we had no business winning.  Lloyd and Jim make sense as they lost games they had no business losing and RR games were so crazy who the hell knows.

I thought we were in pretty good shape for Dax and Cine?

06/26/2018 - 9:18am You are correct except that…

You are correct except that it is true for every program not just Michigan.

I must have missed Dantonio and Franklin in the Super Bowl.

06/25/2018 - 2:01pm His agility seems way better…

His agility seems way better than Zach Charb(he's probably 20-30 lighter so he better be) .  He got out of some tight spots like Houdini.   

The rest of the responses seem to be more in line with the rankings and your opinion so I'll take my maize colored glasses off and rewatch the tape.  


06/25/2018 - 1:08pm I could see that if he wants…

I could see that if he wants to be a QB.   He probably shouldn't come here though.   If he wants to be a QB I'm sure there are a ton of mid level programs that would love to have him at QB.   He looks like a Rich Rod guy.     Georgia Tech is probably sick he's not coming.   

06/25/2018 - 1:05pm His moves are 5 star quality…

His moves are 5 star quality.  Would be a great slot.   It's possible he's playing against scrubs but usually Florida has good competition.   I don't get it.  He's ranked around a #1000.    Maybe he doesn't have hands.    He would have to have literally no hands for his #1000 rank to make sense to me. 

06/24/2018 - 6:32pm Close to 7-1 as well.  No…

Close to 7-1 as well.  No issue.

06/24/2018 - 1:55pm I believe those no star…

I believe those no star nobodies Rich Rod recruited beat Ohio St and went 11-2 with a Sugar Bowl win.  Jake Ryan and Patrick Omameh are still enjoying productive NFL careers.  



06/24/2018 - 7:17am It's already pretty even. …

It's already pretty even.  Did you forget they had somewhere between 3 and 9 unlucky games the year before?

06/24/2018 - 7:15am Pretty simple really.  Big…

Pretty simple really.  Big Ten, local teams, out of conference opponents and for some reason Louisville.  Lol.  Must be his 2nd team.

Last year the line was comprised of mostly 4 and 5 stars......

Until he is assigned a higher arbitrary star I will not listen.

Stay tuned the next 2 days and you will probably be wrong.

Also Cade Mcnamara.

Why would you want a kid who doesn't want to come?


06/22/2018 - 10:34am Then obviously the problem…

Then obviously the problem is with Dixon.   Don Brown is praised universally and the Viper spot in this defense is a glamour position.   

Hometown team, respected coach, position of need, glamour position....he says nah I'm good.

It's on him not Michigan


06/22/2018 - 10:27am I'm holding judgement on all…

I'm holding judgement on all the recruiting drama until this plays out over the next few years.

Can we honestly criticize a Viper recruit Don Brown goes after or any defensive recruit until the defense falls out of the Top 10 defenses in the country? 

Lots of buzz surrounding all of his other hand picked guys....Paye, Uche, Black.   

06/21/2018 - 10:20am Who is the guy that didn't…

Who is the guy that didn't get the memo and wore the teal shirt?   

06/20/2018 - 6:27pm Old you have to like the…

Old you have to like the Ohio recruiting though?  Isn't that your #1 complaint?

06/20/2018 - 6:22pm I understand the importance…

I understand the importance of recruiting and the studies done, but looking at the roster is there any position you have a concern?


Personally I don't.  Roster looks great.  3 stars..  Hudson, Dwumfor, Milton, Mason, McKeon seem to be doing well.  Talent has not been an issue.

06/13/2018 - 2:02pm I think this will effect QB…

I think this will effect QB's the most.  Now true frosh's will be able to get in some solid duty during their freshmen year.   Coaches will have to be better politicians to manage scrub time.    

06/08/2018 - 2:55pm Stop with your logic and…

Stop with your logic and thoughtfulness.  I'm still high on Peters potential

I expect many blowouts this year so the backup will see much more time than usual.  Peters gets more reps, Shea has a great year and heads to NFL and we have an experienced starter ready for 2019.  

Plans rarely work out, but this would be ideal.

06/08/2018 - 12:57pm Good thing Tom Brady passed…

Good thing Tom Brady passed on your advice.

06/07/2018 - 10:32am Do you have any theories why…

Do you have any theories why or your suggestions to fix?

Harbaugh is an excellent coach who I believe works as hard as any head coach in personally recruiting guys.  Mattison, Partridge, Moore and Washington are all supposedly great recruiters.   Don Brown speaks for himself.  Warriner despite Buckeye claims appears to be recruiting well.   

I'm not panicking.  

Also it appears we have more commits in line for ratings bumps.  Mcnamara, Barnhardt etc..

05/30/2018 - 3:17pm Stop

THIS is not the straw that breaks the camels's back.....and stop calling me Shirley.

05/26/2018 - 8:28am It all sucks

Body bag games are a waste and stupid. I assume these decisions are being influenced by the lesser teams that need the extra home game revenue.

From a fans perspective any decision made to create more games that have 30pt spreads sucks. I'll never understand how people enjoy watching Michigan play Delaware St.

05/26/2018 - 8:23am he's the link

He's giving you inside info. There is no link yet.

05/25/2018 - 10:33am arbitrary

While I recognize 9 TD is horrible will anyone be mad if we have 9 passing TD but Higdon, Mason and Evans have 40 rushing TD's?  Just score!!

05/25/2018 - 9:28am Don't mix things up

Don Brown has never said they took 5 tall defensive backs to defend slot fades.   That is analysts putting 2 things that happened last year and sewed them together.  

05/24/2018 - 1:52pm Hmmm

Hard hitter who lacks a top gear and no mention of possible....... VIPER!?!?!?!?   

05/23/2018 - 6:20pm Wait

MGrow, would you agree with me that 2018 could be the most talented Michigan team since the 97 team?

The stars don't look great for the last 2 classes but let it marinate. You can't fake talent at some positions but this staff has a great recruiting rep

Is there anything you would change staff wise ? You seem pretty down on the program.

05/22/2018 - 2:18pm It's Patterson

It's Patterson.   He's playing 1 yr and turning pro.  Depending on how things shake out behind him we will probably have a transfer.

05/22/2018 - 2:15pm Don

You had a typo. 

"Before the season is half over"   should have been   "Before the 1st qtr of the ND game is over"

05/16/2018 - 12:57pm Thanks Seth

This is great content.   Too bad you made it all up.  Didn't you hear that the offense  was a mess because of too many cooks?   No way they could set anything up. 

05/15/2018 - 10:29am Breakdown

I think the only thing being praised in the tweet is the safety coming downhill so aggressively.


You have All 22 clips?   Get posting.   Unload your all 22 cannon and fill the board.  That's way better than reading posts about people crying about in state recruiting or some other garbage

05/15/2018 - 10:22am Meals

Come on.  How many times have we been thru this?   Scholarship football players are not eating Ramen noodles to survive.  If they are eating Ramen noodles it is by choice.   They are provided plenty of food.   

05/14/2018 - 12:58pm Agree

I see Stribling and Godin out there I think.  I think that's Delano Hill on the tackle.

05/11/2018 - 2:06pm That's Fair

I see your point, but I'm just pointing out Beilien does not lose every recruiting battle and we just settle for Plan B types like Rahkman every time.   Who we should be targeting is certainly up for debate but Beilien is getting a good portion of the guys he wants.  Those types of players are often ranked in the 40-150 range instead of the1-40 range many posters would like to see.

05/11/2018 - 1:09pm Few?

I think Teske, Livers, Poole, Brazdekis, Johns and Dejulius are all Plan A guys just on next years' team.    I don't think getting Plan A guys are that rare for Michigan

05/10/2018 - 2:15pm Well

We outplayed them the last 2 years pretty soundly on a play to play basis other than the qb spot and we return 18 starters and Shea so it's rather easy to predict good things from my point of view.

05/10/2018 - 9:19am Exactly

People only care about Michigan being special and unique when it fits their argument.   When it comes to recruiting they just want the highest rated guy.

05/10/2018 - 9:13am So...

Ok let's fire Harbaugh.  

Who do you want hired?

05/10/2018 - 6:41am Good sample

They didn't come by the 1 school you follow in Texas?

This board is really unbelievable. Do you really think Harbaugh is lazy and just not recruiting? Seriously, explain how this staff isn't getting it done?

05/10/2018 - 6:37am Hmmmm

I thought things were going rather well in recruiting.

05/10/2018 - 12:12am It's awesome

How many tackles would people like to sign? We have one of the best tackles in the country committed and lead for 2 others but still we have room to bitch about every kid who signs elsewhere.
