Teske was trying hard to stay out of foul trouble, so Happ had his way at the start.

Crazy idea, should we face them again: start Davis on Happ, keep him from getting into his favorite spot & getting really comfortable right from the start. 

If Davis picks up a few cheapies trying, oh well, put Happ on the line 🤷‍♂️

You're God Damn right we don't!

"Quickly"??!!

Does this shit feel like it's happening "quickly" to you?

NOT to me!

Ready for some #SpeedInSpace!!!

Space, BITCHES!

He apparently has at least one other offer already, and being connected to Michigan (however tenuously) should only help garner others.

I'd think...?

Welp, Winovich & Gary were limited vs osu, which turned out to be fairly important 

01/23/2019 - 8:18am I think the point of the…

I think the point of the comment you're replying to is not that you can't focus on more than1 thing, but "WHY" focus on this other thing right at that moment?!

It wasn't even news, it had been known for days/weeks by anyone who follows Michigan sports enough to be creating posts on Mgoblog!

Hoops had literally won on a buzzer beater moments before this was posted! 

I'm not gif savvy,  but here's what I would insert here if I knew how:

"This is my disapproving look"

01/20/2019 - 12:59pm I'd go so far as to say Gary…

I'd go so far as to say Gary was considered a BETTER prospect coming out of HS than he is now!

And you're imagining a scenario where Gary is the only HS player on the draft board, not a world HS players are eligible like they were in the NBA of Kobe & LBJ days. 

As a team you'd want those 3 years of training & conditioning to be in your weightroom & film sessions. I mean, this IS the NFL's ideal world, they have to play for colleges for 3-5 years to grow, show their skills, etc.

But IF HS players were eligible,  the best would go in the draft & teams would grab them!

01/19/2019 - 11:56am With hindsight I'd use a top…

With hindsight I'd use a top 10 pick on Gronk.

Aside from that, I agree. Kittle went in the 5th

01/19/2019 - 11:53am A healthy shoulder would…

A healthy shoulder would help with that, right? 

01/19/2019 - 11:50am OK cool. Dip em

OK cool. Dip em

01/19/2019 - 11:49am Not very deep, Deep.

He…

Not very deep, Deep.

He wasn't eligible to be drafted straight out of HS, due to NFL rules.

Had he been eligible, as the consensus top overall player in his class, with 3 years still ahead of him that he's now spent playing for Michigan, my guess is he'd have been drafted not too far from where he may end up being drafted in '19 - somewhere between 5-20.

And beyond just Gary, if factoring in the revenue the school makes off football vs the monetary value of the education, room, board, etc players receive, any player who gets drafted in rd.1 has made an enforced financial sacrifice by spending 3-4 potential earning years at school.

Now I won't argue that for virtually ALL players not drafted in the top 100 picks, and certainly for any not drafted at all, the college football scholarship is likely the most valuable thing they'll EVER be offered.

So... it's a tradeoff really. For the top 1-2% a sacrifice, for the rest an amazing opportunity! 

01/19/2019 - 9:40am "Hate"?! There's been "hate"…

"Hate"?! There's been "hate"?

I missed that...

I have seen some fairly clear-eyed skepticism he's proved worth the 2nd overall pick, but everyone here loves the guy & wishes him the best!

You've been #waltered

01/19/2019 - 9:35am Haskins is VERY clearly…

Haskins is VERY clearly unlike previous osu QBs. I think he'll be a pretty successful pro QB. At least as good as Trubisky, maybe even Goff in the perfect situation. 

Not wanting to have to root for an osu QB for the next decade on your favorite pro team I surely do get!

01/19/2019 - 9:29am No one who has read this far…

No one who has read this far into the comments of a board post on Mgoblog has forgotten or is unaware of that narrative! 

01/19/2019 - 9:24am That's exactly the type of…

That's exactly the type of thinking that moves guys up who produced relatively little, and has guys that exhibited Montana-like coolness in tight games drop to 199th!

Slotting players based on combine numbers is how you get guys that ran a fast straight line 40 going over guys that actually caught passes or QBs! 

And anyone decent now gets measured at pro days at their school, not in a cattle call environment in Indy.

Zero chance J.Allen is there at 8

01/18/2019 - 4:32pm And I project him to move…

And I project him to move inside and be dominating!

That said, any higher than 10th is a reach

01/18/2019 - 4:30pm But by that logic so did…

But by that logic so did Bush, and produced a Helluva lot more!

So root for HIM to go 1st!

01/18/2019 - 4:21pm Agreed, he just never…

Agreed, he just never exhibited as much explosiveness as Q.Williams on the inside, or Josh Allen (among others) on the outside. I'd expect both to be drafted before him. But I'm sure he'll blow up the combine with testing measurables. 

And YES, to answer the OP, if Gary did go 2nd, I'd see that as a HUGE indictment of his DL Coach!!!

01/17/2019 - 5:02pm The very word trump cannot…

The very word trump cannot be used without an air of intention any longer.

So, I therefore call POLITICS!!!

Plus Polynesian pipeline on the DL!

01/13/2019 - 2:54pm Oh, you thought the new DL…

Oh, you thought the new DL coach has to literally fit in the last one's clothes?

I don't think that'a actually a requirement...

01/13/2019 - 2:06pm Do they have a coach? And he…

Do they have a coach? And he's SAID he's keeping McCarthy's staff?

Unusual

What's Jerry Montgomery's status these days? He used to be a Hot Hire! 

01/12/2019 - 3:46pm Getting blown out in the…

Getting blown out in the NCAA final is NOT a "hiccup" - that game literally defines which team of the 68 invitees (and hundreds of non-invitees) achieved its ultimate goal for the season. 

Making Final Fours is program defining; winning titles is Legacy defining! 

All that said, if it was part of the building block to finishing this season at the top, then getting to the game had merits notwithstanding the result.

01/12/2019 - 3:20pm Oh Boo frickin Hoo

Oh Boo frickin Hoo

That was cute tho, Marvin!

And we will be glad to hear that!

01/10/2019 - 3:48pm the "president" does tend to…

the "president" does tend to take up some fair amount of the collective "head space" of the nation.

Lord knows Bill & Barack did for some. Of course, that doesn't equate being a "snowflake," right?

01/10/2019 - 3:42pm Not a .250 hitter of Murray…

Not a .250 hitter of Murray's stature & skillset, but Bryce could hit .250 and still make $30mil+ year. You would need a fair amount of walks to supplement that, of course.

01/10/2019 - 1:28pm Drew Henson probably screwed…

Drew Henson probably screwed it up by doing it in the wrong order, but Bo & Deion did both simultaneously. Neither spent any 3 years in the Minors.

Of course, they weren't QBs, so their NFL trajectory was smoother...

01/10/2019 - 12:26pm Kyler just turned 21 (he'd…

Kyler just turned 21 (he'd be 22 by next season start); he could legit play 5 years in the NFL & still have a 10-yr career in MLB. Jus sayin

But has he been projected to hit 20 bombs in the bigs???

He's a bit... slight for that, no?

01/10/2019 - 12:20pm Kingsbury was previously OC…

Kingsbury was previously OC/QB coach at A&M, very likely was involved in getting them in early on Kyler?

Just a guess, no knowledge

01/09/2019 - 10:45am Jabrill was a 5* all…

Jabrill was a 5* all-American CB in HS, but got his ankle rolled over on by a dive-blocking WR on his 1st snap, costing him a year of p.t.

We'll never know what he could've been, but he was pretty damn good at what they tasked him with! 

01/08/2019 - 1:10pm Olave may have been a 3* -…

Olave may have been a 3* - but FAST! 

I think that's a leetle more pertinent to the D's problems in that game than the crootin rankings 

01/08/2019 - 1:08pm Apparently you like buck$…

Apparently you like buck$ MOAR than uhatebux?!

Don't know how wishing for the former helps bring about the latter?

Boron Snow Removal, by chance?

Mass blue, please stop coming on here being thoughtful, reasonable, respectful- 

EVERYBODY knows the whole purpose of this & every Michigan related media site is to come in blazing, calling longtime Michigan men fat old biiiiitches!

My thought instantly upon hearing this was that GMatt had been TOLD Washington was being made DLine coach, in order to keep HIM from bolting for Cbus. 

Who knows? Pretty sure Mattison has canceled his subscription to Mgoblog now, so say whatever I guess...

01/07/2019 - 4:53pm I would definitely watch a…

I would definitely watch a potentially fantastic football game over Man in the High Castle! 

 

01/07/2019 - 10:53am Yes, I think that's exactly…

Yes, I think that's exactly what these ppl are saying! 

The Good Ol' Days, where have you gone?

You can still, over 20 years later, get a raging debate going over '97, and a few other years that had split titles.

The finality of knowing Saban (or occasionally Dabo) are gonna win - and for M ppl specifically finding out just how far we really are from joining in - has made these ppl eager to miss what could be a great college football game! 

It's a cut off your nose type of deal 🤷‍♂️

01/03/2019 - 1:48pm 93, You may really want to…

93, You may really want to consider getting more knowledgeable about college football before you post anymore here.

I mean, dude was ONLY the Heisman winner & no.1 overall pick in the NFL draft and you didn't know that? 

Cumong Man. Embarrassing yourself

I urge you to revisit Alex Smith vs NO, Kap vs GB (twice I believe), Kap vs Atl

He succeeded with two very different QBs (from each other, and certainly from Luck)

Rudock here in '15 grew & grew til he had a record setting bowl performance.

Shit, Wilton fucking Speight looked pretty good til he broke vs Iowa

01/02/2019 - 3:26pm WHAT?!?!

WHAT?!?!

01/02/2019 - 3:25pm No, it is NOT!

No, it is NOT!

01/02/2019 - 2:43pm I sure didn't think I'd be…

I sure didn't think I'd be saying this 4 years ago, but I'd encourage JH to gauge the interest of the NFL.

See if he gets any nibbles. But I mean - he'd have to take a pay cut, so...

01/02/2019 - 2:37pm Yes, we're here "leading the…

Yes, we're here "leading the fight" -

for all the damn good it's gonna do!!!

Tell me what you need me to do, I'll fire off some strongly worded emails!

01/01/2019 - 12:50am I'd probably use my New Year…

I'd probably use my New Year's wish on something else.

You think they're leaving the Rose Bowl without carrying Urbz out on their shoulders? 

Bet the HOUSE & kid's college fund. It'll look only slightly less horrific than our game...
