I don't think anyone should be hateful to any athlete.  With Wesson, I was just waiting for him to take his conditioning seriously.  I honestly think half of his on court troubles stem from being out of shape.  He didn't need to lose weight, he knows how to use the weight in the right way, just be in better shape to position himself quicker and in the right way to avoid the stupid fouls he would give up.

That video, it looks like he got to work this offseason.  If he is better conditioned, even if he stays at the same level as far ask skill and production, will make him a monster for this team down low and allow the youth to play loose around him.

The third one actually leads to an interesting question: what if Harbaugh's teams are consistently elite but he never manages to beat Ohio State? Would Michigan fire him after a 11-1 or 10-2 regular season that ends with his W-L record to Ohio State falling to 0-10? I could see it happening. 

So he gets Pelini'd?

Comment 10 Jul 2019

What really tickles me is that these guys that are picking UM this year always mention their new offense like it's unique in the universe with secret new plays. They haven't even seen it and yet it's a dominating force.

And somehow completely gloss over the fact that the only thing that has kept Michigan competitive for the past decade, their defense, just lost two of their top coaches and 3/4 of the firepower on the defensive side of the ball.  All of a sudden, in a matter of one offseason, they are going from a defensive team to a Big 12 team.

I'm not sure what the purpose of the comment was, but:

1.  He is a guy that people will listen to when he speaks.
2.  He is a guy that isn't going to say something that feeds the media fire (AJ McCarron while at Alabaman, Johnny Football his entire life, Higdon getting baited into guaranteeing victory last year).
3.  He is a guy that can communicate to help teach the younger players as not only a "well spoken" guy, but someone with a mountain of OSU experience.

KJ Hill is the new JT Barrett.  He has been here since 2005.

I also saw this comment haha.  It's hilarious, someone said they dodged a bullet by not having him on the team.  I'm like, uhhh yeah you definitely didn't want an All-American on your team to help you beat OSU because he was arrested 3 years after college.  Their thinking is absolutely insane.

The board is about 50/50 in my readings.  Half of them have accepted what Michigan football has become with hopes of the program gaining steam to get back to the top.  That half, in my opinion, are pretty even keel when discussing OSU as well.  Yes they hate OSU, but they usually are at least smart enough to tell the other posters to shut up until they beat OSU.  So it's not all bad.

The other half, however, are constantly grasping at straws.  From the aforementioned "cheating" that only UM fans know about that goes on in Columbus, to them having truly convinced each other that Urban/OSU straight up covered up domestic abuse (weird that Smith is now running a successful podcast and isn't in court facing jail time), it's hard to read.  I have commented 2 or 3 times when someone has just an insane opinion where I have corrected them, and of course it's silence from there since they have no rebuttal.

But if you want to read some entertaining stuff, and you are out of new 11W material...it's amazing over there.  Non-OSU bias though....someone needs to fix the design of their site.  It's like someone put it together in 2003 and it hasn't changed.

No kidding.  Not to mention the turnover, you come in and could be looking at unemployment if you start 1-4 in the NFL.  In college you build a program and the kids look to you for guidance.  In the NFL you are just a speaking head that is one bad situation away from being booted.  There is a reason that the great college coaches stay in college.  They are smart.  Hell look at Saban, he came running back to college as quickly as he could.

Comment 05 Jul 2019

The NFL is 100% football 100% of the time

Ummm...no it's not.  Have you ever heard of the NFLPA?  Have you seen the drama tear teams apart?  Have you not seen how much politics have played into the NFL recently?  The NFL is a shit show, where a coach does not have the control of the team that he does in college.  You have 53 men who all think they all know better than the coaches in the NFL.

Day has said repeatedly that OSU is a destination, not a stepping stone.  Assuming his performance is rated at a high level, I believe between his comments on how he looks at OSU as the place he wants to be, and his family continuing to say that they don't want to be nomads of the USA and their affinity for Columbus, he will be here for a long time.  However, I could be totally wrong.

Comment 02 Jul 2019

Interesting, I never had Twitter so I wasn't privy to the infancy of the hashtags, only what has become of the evolution of hashtags which are absolutely insane as you said.

Comment 02 Jul 2019

I think you are right, and I plead ignorance on the viewpoint you have.  I have never worked in social media so therefore my opinions are based off of the fallout that has come from so many different examples of social media taking someones life in a negative direction.  We are looking at this from two totally different viewpoints, knowing that you work in social media would obviously have you seeing benefits that the public wouldn't.  Either way, don't tweet at recruits haha.

1)  Airing your frustrations with a company publicly versus handling it in a professional manner (maybe make a phone call) is only pushing our society further out of touch with reality.  Every company that has ever wronged me has known about it and the issue has been resolved because I picked up the phone like an adult.

2)  It's called websites...go to the websites you prefer to get your news from, easy fix.

3)  The keyboard warriors were given a platform BECAUSE of things like Twitter...this is a negative.

4)  The hashtags are juvenile.  Maybe they work in very isolated cases as you mentioned, but all in all saying things like #mypeepsbettathanyopeeps is juvenile.

Comment 02 Jul 2019

Sooner or later Twitter will be gone for the greater good.  Name one single good thing that has come from twitter.  I'll give you a minute, I could list off about 2000 bad things that have happened though.

Comment 27 Jun 2019

Agree with Dobbins at #1.  He has to have a freshman-esque season this year to keep the offense moving if there are hiccups, especially early.  I expect Mack to be in line for KJ Hill numbers from last year.  He is consistent, people only remember the TCU game where he had the yips, but outside of that he has been reliable every time the ball came his way.  One game doesn't define a player.

As a school, when you signed up with the NCAA, you signed up for the NCAA rules.  Schools are not forced to be a member of the NCAA.  Just because the law may get through, it doesn't mean that the schools will go that direction.  They need the NCAA as much as the NCAA needs them.  Good luck getting TV contracts and exposure packaging USC, UCLA, CAL, Stanford, and all of the smaller schools who don't compete nationally with the schools that are all part of the NCAA.  The law doesn't force schools to allow players to be paid (at least not to my knowledge), just allows them to if they so choose.  Until basically the top half of FBS schools decide to pull out of the NCAA and start their own organization, the NCAA still holds the cards.  So even if this law passes, I highly doubt anything major actually happens within the individual schools.

Comment 25 Jun 2019

I would say a 9.  Solely because I don't wear face paint and cowboy hats to events I'm not invited to and I don't sign things I'm not intended to sign.

Comment 25 Jun 2019

Every one of these predictions come down to one thing...Ryan Day.  They can talk about what players stayed, what players left, whatever.  But if the two rosters heading into fall were exactly the same but Urban was still here, most of these guys would have a different outlook on the conference champion.  So basically I read these, see their reasoning, but know in the back of my head that none of it means anything because they are all still waiting to be sold on Day.  Most of us know a lot more about Day and his new look staff than these national writers do.  We also seem to know more about what Harbaugh is capable of (or what he is NOT capable of) than these other writers.  

My apologies in advance to Browns fans, but Michigan has been the Cleveland Browns of college football for about 2 decades..."Next year watch out!".  They just have a much higher winning percentage than the Browns.
