Green means computers like you more than NET, red means computers don't.  Tried to add some shading to also indicate to what degree.

I think there is reason to be cautious with expectations. You’ve pointed out a few and those things are hard to ignore. I am happy about this addition because it adds some depth. The unreasonable side of me also has some data here to think this might work out really well.

My brother-in-law's wife is not my sister on one occasion, but my brother-in law's wife is my sister on another.  It depends on who the brother-in-law is married to. 

My sister married her college sweetheart.  Her husband is my brother-in-law.  His wife is my sister.

02/18/2019 - 11:49am Money is being raised to…

Money is being raised to fund research for gene therapy, which is thought to be a potential cure for Hunter Syndrome, at projectalive.org. There is also a gofundme page at www.gofundme.com/projectalive. As of the writing of this article, the page has raised $2,268,810 with a goal of reaching $2.5 million.

I have choroideremia, which is a rare genetic disorder.  Gene therapy research is ongoing for my disease as well.  Like Hunter Syndrome, my disease is progressive.  The progression of my disease will result in total blindness.  Like Hunter Syndrome, we do our own fundraising as well.  I have volunteered for the trials that are taking place with gene therapy, but have not been accepted to one yet.  One trial wanted someone with poor acuity and one wanted participants with less central vision.  I have approximately 5 degrees of central vision remaining.

Ruke Orhorhoro on why not Michigan State -

I didn’t like the way they recruited me, showed fake love. I visited there like four or five times.

He goes on to talk about being strung along and never getting the offer they were promising him.  Some of the players talk about being upset that they weren't shown any interest until their sophomore year.  Yikes.

Penn State has two things we don’t in the last few years. A win over OSU and a B1G title. We are right there per recruiting metrics - actually better than Penn State per average composite. 

01/20/2019 - 1:16pm Over a five year cycle, we…

Over a five year cycle, we are recruiting better than Penn State by composite average. Not by much, but we are #2 in the B1G by composite average over five years. Our problem isn’t recruiting - we could recruit slightly better but then we’d be ahead of Clemson - our problem is just not getting over the fucking hump. Beating Ohio State, B1G Championship, CFP berth, etc. We are right there. Because Michigan offered the #439 ranked player in the country isn’t why we lose.

I know there is a current joke about emailing the AD/coaches, but I’m going to send an email about hockey broadcasting to the AD. If what you say is true about Minnesota hockey, then I’m truly baffled that we don’t have more televised Michigan hockey broadcasts.

Since 2010 this is the number of top 250 recruits per year compared to Ohio State.  Blue is U-M, red is OSU.  Source of data is 24/7 composite.

U-M has averaged 8.4 top 250 players per year versus OSU averaging 13.2.  In the Harbaugh era, it is 9.0 per year versus 14.0.

It was maybe premature to lock the thread. I emailed Seth after the second post came up. There was also some Twitter buzz about the same time.  I locked the thread this morning because the article was released in the wee hours of the night and I was being precautionary.

There are 4 offensive assistants that have left Alabama so far.  When Enos was asked about whether he would be stepping up to OC prior to the Orange Bowl, he replied that they hadn't discussed it.  Saban said the same thing.  Saban then said they were going to review the staff after the game was over.  FWIW, Saban had to replace 6 assistants last year.  This is pretty common for Alabama.

I heard an Alabama fan emailed Saban his concerns.  I would expect that this gets fixed shortly.

The SB Nation site for Boston College was NOT happy that he was being interviewed here.  This is a good hire.  Per Sam's article -

When it comes to recruiting, Campanile is a major presence in the Garden State. He hails from a family that is considered football royalty in North Jersey where his father is a coaching legend and several other family members have also been standouts as players and or coaches. That rich lineage and his own on-field and sideline accomplishments allow his to walk in virtually any door in his home state and be known. That worked to Boston College's advantage. Now it will work to Michigan's.

FWIW, I kept your post up from last night because of your detail. There was a duplicate of the same subject, but it basically had one sentence of content. If you had posted this (OSU losing) with more detail I would have done the same and dropped the one/two sentence post. Now that being said, I’m not the only mod and I’m not always on. I do appreciate your detail though. I have read comments here from others that do as well.

Dear Jim,

Please recruit harder, we have noticed Nick Saban recruits really hard.  Also did you see Tarik Black liked a tweet? Lastly, if possible I’d like a cotton candy making session with the punters at the spring game. 

Best,

mgowill

And Harbaugh doesn’t tweet much. He could still do camps. I really don’t know why you’re upset. If he does a carnival and we lose to OSU again, none of it matters. Are people going to cheer extra really hard and make us win the game cause they got to do a potato sack race in Michigan Stadium in the spring?
