I love the C8, while I won't order one I will buy one shortly after the Z06 and/or ZR1 comes out and people start offloading the Stingray. I'm not a baller by any means so buying a sub 10k mile C8 for 25% off retail is a deal. 

If I can find a good deal on a C7 ZO6 though, that may be hard to pass up.

The only question I have about Gattis is will he be around long enough to really have an impact at Michigan? In the last 3 years he's been at PSU, Bama and now Michigan. He's on the track to be a head coach somewhere, regardless of the level. Michigan is no more than a stepping stone for him to get where he runs his own program.

It's going to take Michigan 2-3 years to get the guys he really wants in his offense. After Patterson is gone, they have pro style QB's already on roster and they've signed/have committed 2 pro QB's in 19 and 20. Not to mention they're unknown at WR outside of the starters who will likely be gone after this year, have 1 quality RB (who is a true FR). In the last 3 classes (including 2020) they have 4 top 300 skill players. That will not be enough for his "speed in space" scheme.

I like Frost, I like him a lot but with that being said, I don't get the hype either. Not this year at least. The talent gap is too big, in the trenches specifically. Too many people are putting stock into "our" defense last year while completely discounting the offense. The talent is there on both sides of the ball. The coaching is there on both sides of the ball. By the time we play Neb things should be rolling well and I don't see it being much of a game. Sure Neb has some offensive talent and they could very well score points but this offense is still coached by 3 of the best offensive minds in the nation and they will score a lot.

Every time he hits adversity he talks about drinking and/or smoking a "stick", every time he's off the field he's got a drink in his hand. It's unreal, couple that with the other social issues he has, it's not a good combination. 

I also have no issues with his cussing the players out when they deserve it and etc but just simply talking shit to them (and the coaches) all the time is bullshit. I havent seen him actually coach in the 1 3/4 seasons I've watched him on the show and I'm not sure if that's the shows editing or he just hasnt coached.

I think some of it is the way it's framed but a lot of it is the way the kids act. Lets be honest, a lot of them are there for a reason and being immature, irrational, selfish, etc is a big part of that reason.

You can also tell the kids who are really good and stable because you don't see them anywhere on film but they're the #1 player in the nation.. 

King seems to be electric on the show but is irrational and IMO, if the film crew knew he had concussions they should have told the med staff. You're putting a kids life in danger by not getting him the medical attention he needs. He will definitely be a CTE case when he's older just based on the hits he hates on the show and his size/position.

It was funny too because you know he didnt even attempt/think of reading it. He brought it up to brag about getting a gift from Kiffen instead of using it as a tool like it was obviously meant to be.

Comment 20 Jul 2019

That's what I was thinking too. He seems to be a good kid, he's just impulsive and seems to be a follower. 

I hope he can get his shit together, that child is gunna need him to be a man, not a boy.

While on the surface, there is some validity to Harbaughs statement, a little deeper research proves his comments fault. 

Has Urban always made the right decisions? No, no one has. But to act like players actions AFTER they leave his program are his fault is a farce. Couple that with the sustained arrests at UF for the last 10 years and the largely clean stint at Ohio St, he's just pissing in the air and saying it's raining. He's justifying his inability to recruit on the same level, build a team on the same level, have the same level (or even close really) team and inability to build an elite program.

Not only is Ohio St's APR better than Michigans, we also win more games, have more players drafted and have a better program for after football as whole.

I guess since it's a sports message board we shouldn't be talking about anything outside of sports. Lets wrap this shit up. It's getting out of control. 

Comment 17 Jul 2019

If it hadnt gotten out of hand what is the issue? 

What is the difference between political disagreement and sports disagreements? There is none. It was civil and no one was attacking each other...

Per USA Today, California gives 370 billion and receives 436 billion.(https://www.usatoday.com/story/money/economy/2019/03/20/how-much-federal-funding-each-state-receives-government/39202299/)

You would also expect a state with such a large economy and GDP to not take much from the feds but the fact is their economy is flawed, huge but flawed. It would hurt them, just as much as the US if they left. Though, I would argue it would hurt them worse than us. 

I won't high jack this thread anymore. 

Enjoy Fellas.

They can't even agree if recruiting rankings matter (they do, they most definitely do. If you like I can attach some solid analysis).

The fact of the matter is compared to Ohio Sts recruiting, they're recruiting horribly. In fact they're more on par with Penn States recruiting than Ohio Sts.

Top 5 vs Top 5.

AJ Henning WR 80/16 vs J. Fleming WR 5/1

Blake Corum RB 201/17 vs Johnson Jr OT 8/1

Zak Zinter OT 272/23 vs L Wypler OC 61/1

JD Johnson PRO 329/16 vs M. Cooper WR 64/11

R. Wilson WR 332/59 vs Scott JR WR 66/13

I havent had any grandparents alive since my early 20's unfortunately. During those years I was overseas so my access to them was very limited. All I have left is my father, who doesnt know much as my grandfather didnt like to talk about his father.
