Joe Gaziano. Northwestern's SDE who's up there with Gary, Bosa, and Winovich among the best DEs in the country.

Deleted a response by Walter Sobchak (the user) regarding Kaepernick because I don't want to deal with this on a gameday. If it makes you feel better I also deleted 1/4th of the article Raj submitted for this same reason.

It's back. Apparently when I try to hide the file I attached to the article it breaks the link as well.

Yes but forewarning we don't run ads until the check clears.

We need a sponsor for it, because Joe can't just make these for free. Lantana is sponsoring 3 this year because they wanted to just go for the ones with their hummus in the recipe. We'd love to do more! If you have a business that would be a good fit (anyone who supplies anything for tailgates or grocery stores or BBQ'ing), hit me up in email: seth at [this site] dot com. The price is going to be extremely reasonable because I want to bring this back too, and if the fact that people are creating a thread for it isn't clue enough, it's one of our best spots.

09/13/2018 - 1:34pm Relative to their team and…

Relative to their team and their competition. But I don't have quotas. If it's a bad unit I'll put a star on any guys I thought were B+ or higher, and I won't hand out cyans unless they're particularly bad. That's because I don't want to just make charts full of cyan guys whenever Michigan plays a team they should beat.

If it's a decent unit, e.g. Iowa's defense, I'll save the stars for the draftable players. Usually a star is in line for all-conference honors. Shields are potential All-Americans.

One of the features we requested that haven't been built yet will definitively fix the multiple account issue and many others.

Outdated news. They had the tool. It's a lack of mods. We are shorthanded and the users we reached out to are unable or unwilling to do it.

Seth: You're alive!

Mathlete: According to my database's statistical parameters, and keep in mind this is a small dataset with just two games in the books, Rutgers is the rock.

slackbot: I think you meant Rutger

BiSB: I said we were the rock. We are the rock.

Alex: /giphy the rock

David: Here's why I think we are the rock...

[David rambles for 8900 words]

So that's why we're the rock, probably.

Unless I'm mis-remembering the user handle didn't you say your star daughter was spurning Michigan as well?

09/12/2018 - 10:32pm I should add we get as many…

I should add we get as many and more family members of players. The players tell each other not to care what people on the internet think. But imagine if there was a website devoted to nitpicking your son's biggest endeavor. I'd be on that like flies on shit.

This metaphor is doing work.

It's probably only me who sees it because I watch the logins and new signups to make sure we're not getting attacked by spambots again. If they don't want to be known I have no reason to go further into their privacy.

Several current players have accounts here and a lot of former players do. Most are lurkers. Only a couple of older former players regularly post on the board. JDue51 is probably the most active. The current players regularly post MGoPhotos of themselves on their Instagram accounts.

The thing about Ticket Watch is I have to collect a TON of data in order to be confident in knowing what I'm talking about, even if the article is pretty short at the end. Once I've got it going it's not hard to keep up, but I'm playing catchup still. 

09/12/2018 - 1:04am Funny, the two notifications…

Funny, the two notifications I have are this and the sponsor saying he's in.

I'll try to get one out tomorrow. Collecting data on NWern tix. SMU will be cheap. Already under face.

At least you got it, Bando, if nobody else did.

Sponsors bailed except for a few recipes from Lantana. Stubbs has new corporate overlords who advertise on a Texas blog nobody reads.

If you know a food company give them my email.

8 is a great score. 8 means you had ambitions.

09/07/2018 - 7:22pm Yeah but that took me time…

Yeah but that took me time to draw and now that he's a returning starter I would have to redraw it.

09/07/2018 - 12:49pm They're also #1 in tempo and…

They're also #1 in tempo and Michigan can't even snap it with 15 on the clock in a 2 minute drill. Early in the season with almost all new starters you take what you can get

09/07/2018 - 9:29am I haven't decided on that…

I haven't decided on that one yet. Meant to do so before I posted. I kinda think Car wins but I don't want to pick against Taco and Jourdan.

It's always a bit relative. I explained all the stars. Also, until all the injuries last year their offense was a seriously respected unit. They've been getting guys drafted, and drafted early.

09/06/2018 - 7:00pm I added Hawkins to the chart.

I added Hawkins to the chart.

I've been getting this wrong on my diagrams for so long now it's become a joke.

09/06/2018 - 12:19pm Sorry to all the lovely…

Sorry to all the lovely comments from the two previous (original and last night's diary) versions of this article. Somehow the original got corrupted so I've reposted it.

09/05/2018 - 10:45pm I disagree. Sales is about…

I disagree. Sales is about knowing what you have to offer that your customer values. Urban Meyer is one kind of salesman but I do sales too and if I tried to do it Urban's way or he tried mine neither of us would succeed. Greg Mattison is a great recruiter. He's flat honest and humble and himself, and he knows everyone in football because he's coached at every level of it. It's not about getting dirty, but it is about putting in the effort to get to know your clients and what their needs are, and keeping up those lines of communication. I think Drevno preferred to go to coaching clinics much more than calling Mekhi Becton. I can't blame him, except if you're the OL coach and offensive coordinator of a major college program recruiting is a big part of your job.

The new live blog is going to embed in the new site and we have a beta version but it wasn't stable enough to take out of the garage for a Notre Dame night game.  we are going to try again Saturday I think.

09/05/2018 - 12:53pm By Signing Day 2016 I was…

By Signing Day 2016 I was convinced drevno is not a good recruiter. I think he's probably a good guy but too trusting and not enough of a sales guy to stay on recruits and convince them they're a priority. All of that blindsiding was on him and I remember reading about Becton falling off and then Michigan having to send Harbaugh and Partridge to try to fix it. He should have fired drevno right then. He's paying for it now.

All this I've made clear in the sticky thread, but I've been beating that drum but we had so many users complaining about points that against our better judgment we switched the main developer onto getting points working. The "New" tags are a big job, and next. Not switching streams now.

09/05/2018 - 11:24am At least it's not crashing…

At least it's not crashing anymore. I won't address the rest of this because it's all been addressed ad nauseum in the sticky thread. Hope bagging on us made you feel good though.

Ungh. I forgot. Their punter and kicker are good, our punter is ???? our kicker is WILD THING and DPJ could return one but their Dileo probably won't.

New banner was commissioned when we started working on the site. I'm just not going to post it until the season starts because that's what I said I'd do.

Thank you I didn't see him but was so sure somebody else must have that I didn't raise any alarm. Hard for any one person to take in everything in that situation
