The GT40 has always been my favorite car because I grew up watching Speed Racer reruns, and it reminded me of the blunt/curvy lines of the mesmerizing Car Acrobatic Team.

I think there is more Michigan content here than there is OSU content at mgoblog.

Commitments by high profile recruits to Ohio State used to get routinely posted on the mgoblog message board. This dropped off over the years as Michigan fans got more bitter about losing.

a more ideal college football would be to end the student athlete charade and to force the NFL to fund and staff their own minor leagues ...

I agree with this. That makes two of us in the entire country. To be clear, we are right and everyone else is wrong, but we're on the losing end of this argument.

(*No need to force the NFL to do anything. If you get rid of athletic "scholarships," it will kill the NCAA semi-pro developmental league, and the NFL will create a replacement purely out of self-interest.)

"The Tuf Borland Situation"

The Bourne franchise has really gone off the rails.

Girl turns around in class to smile and wink at you. After class:

You: Hey, what's up?
Her: <looks away, pretends not to hear you>

Michigan deserves a coach who won't say their name. I support the move on sole condition that Urban vows never to break this tradition.

Sorta like Carlos Hyde with WR skills.

Have hated the Cowboys my entire life, but I revere Emmitt Smith. If his son lives up to your description, he'd be my favorite recruit in this class.

It's like there's some invisible "dark matter" that exerts a freakishly strong gravitational pull on recruits. Maybe scientists will one day help sports journalists figure out what it could be.

(Seriously, tho, the funniest thing about college football "journalism" is the silent pretense, shared by most every site, that payment negotiations don't affect these decisions. I don't begrudge players and their families one penny of these earnings. They were just born into this system and didn't make the rules. But it's funny that virtually no one will even try to report on the elephant in the room because "then I would lose access!" PS: Who knows specifically what's happening in Bijan's case. Maybe he just realized the weather will be a lot nicer in Austin.)

If Gee Scott stays at #26 overall, then he will eventually get his 5th star. 247 always ranks at least 26 players as 5-star recruits by the time the site publishes it's final evaluation (going back to 2000).

Raleigh, I agree it's a stretch to blame jbook, but it was mistake for him to describe Milton's post-OSU visits elsewhere as practically just a formality. A lot of these kids dislike it when recruiting writers take a player's commitment for granted long before he's ready to announce. Again, not jbook's fault, but still a bit presumptuous the way he wrote about it.

Edit: Good point about the different response to Kipp Adams.
