I don't think that's true at all. You don't have to care about something you're commenting on. Heck, 90% of the comments on the Graham Rahal visits the Woody Hayes Center are about QBs w/ their shirts off. I can guarantee more than 90% of people on this site have never heard of Graham Rahal or care about INDYCAR, but the comments are still there.
I don't think any recruits, Michigan fans or anyone associated with the football team really care how he did in this one specific interview on Colin Cowherd's show. This was actually the first time I've even seen or listened to his show.
Harbuagh. Don't. Care.
I would love for Michigan and Ohio State to determine the B1G title nearly every year, but not at the risk of losing "The Game"...I don't want them to play twice per year either..just once..the final game in November
Dantonio a better coach than Harbaugh? No doubt he's a great coach, but Harbaugh has been very successful at both the college and pro levels and was/is the most sought after coach in the game, at both levels...time will tell.
I do think the B1G East will quickly become the #1 conference (even over SEC West) in the nation b/c of OSU, Michigan, MSU and PSU
you're pretty neat
This whole comment has no basis at all and is just misinformed/ignorant
Good write up, Eric. I think 8-9 wins is realistic, but I wouldn't be surprised with a few more. I think this team has the talent defensively to keep them in every game, but too many questions still offensively could hurt them. If the line comes together and they can establish a little bit of a running game, it could be a very run and competitive team. I'm slightly worried about going to Utah, but I don't see Harbaugh losing in his debut Michigan game, but it could be very close 23-21 or something like that. Both MSU and OSU are at home, which helps, and my bias + Harbaugh tells me they will upset one of those teams. Hoke kept his teams pretty close against OSU, so the magic that Harbaugh brings could inspire some craziness in 2015. It will be a fun season.
Cardale Jones: Great a football, horrible at Twitter
Listening to Sam Webb, it sounds like the kid is actually closer to 310 or 315, but multiple recruiting sites have him listed over 360, so who really knows at this point (besides him).
It's not decided if he'll be on the OL or DL
Clearly there's some bad weight in there. I have a feeling he'll commit to losing some this year and quite a bit will be trimmed off when he gets into a college workout program and hopefully he'll red shirt when he gets here so he'll have even more time to trim down and get into college playing shape. Not too worried about that, but very happy he went Blue.
I can't bring myself to root for anyone else in the B1G, including non-conference regular season games
Didn't Jamie Dimon just come speak to the team? He's kicked more people in the nuts with subprime mortgages than ankles Suh has stepped on
Really? Do we need to create a list of guys who are turds that have played at OSU or visited the school? All schools have idiots in their programs or who played for their programs. There is no need to take jabs at any school for meeting with a player, turd or not.
They did win a Sugar Bowl in 2012
There's no controversy. Gwen Bush, mother of Wayne Lyons, was hired as Director of Player Development. She was also the "team mom" for the South Florida Express 7 on 7 team, who won the 7 on 7 National Championship and has had a lot of great players on the team. The Lyons to Michigan news has been out there for two weeks. How is this any different than Michigan State hiring Curtis Blackwell of Sound Mind Sound Body?
Harbaugh is moaning and complaining about this? Where?
Shane can move, Malzone can move, Gentry, despite being 6'6" or 6'7" can probably move better than both of them. And yes, you'll see a lot of 2 TEs b/c that's what Harbaugh does, and it works. I'm not so sure about the "get 10 wins and only good enough to be ranked and never get over the hump" statement. Everything Harbaugh has done prove he gets his team to compete at the top level, both college and pro. I think he knows what he's doing...especially with QBs
we won't be able to hear Mattison's side of the story due to NCAA rules, but I highly doubt a guy with the track record of Mattison's intentionally insulted the kid and his family. It stinks there was a miscommunication, but that happens. I'm not worried about Harbuagh's or Mattison's recruiting ability. Remember, there was a certain head coach that said he was the best recruiter in the country.
They have gotten two tonight (8 total now), one being Zach Gentry, a QB flip from Texas, the other Reuben Jones, a DE flip from Nebraska
3rd string as a true freshman, yes. His new OC is also the former OL coach at USC with him, so I think he has the advantage to starting going into next season. Plus, he's probably just better than the others.
if Weber comes to Michigan he will most likely red shirt right away. He has Green, Smith, Johnson (if healthy) and Ty Isaac ahead of him and I bet Isaac starts by the time B1G season starts.
His contract is around $5/mil w/ incentives. Similar to what he had at SF. There were bigger offers to him and he could have made more money in the NFL. He chose Michigan..He did not choose Michigan for the money.
Harbaugh will salvage some guys in 2015 (Chris Clark is very possible...again) and might be able to flip some big time guys, but I think 2016 is where you'll see the biggest impact and I have a feeling it will be BIG. These next few years will be fun for Michigan, Ohio State and the B1G
