    No. I don't think IU or UI has troubles with this team in a standard game with their full rotation.

    We play them this Saturday in an exhibition. I know you don't want to hear it, but I think you guys are going to struggle again this year.

    We had three rotational players not play, and it's a pre-season exhibition. It will be a completely different team by January.

    No confusion here, I used 247 because it is a composite of all the ranking services, and you can filter on the conference. Yes, we are on a Rivals (basketball) board, doesn't mean that Rivals is the authority on recruiting rankings.

    Even that "50th ranked" class of 2015, was only ranked that low because it was a small class. Filter on average star rating, and that class was the #18 class in the country, per Rivals. The 2014 class is the #15 class in the country, per Rivals, based on average star rating.

    247 composites with some bad sites with large discrepancies that shift rankings drastically.

    You know it! I just don't understand how I didn't understand that scoring ONE more basket and ONE more rebound is significantly improving stats from one year to the next. Just don't get it...

    Sure, you can have it the opinion 247 is better. I’m just surprised you seemed confused about him citing the class rankings from the site we are posting on.

    The small size of those classes is showing it’s head then. Hard to replace 18 starters and that many nfl draft picks when your upper classmen classes were so small and void of much top end talent.

    If Michigan struggles when Harbaugh’s full classes are upper classmen then I’ll be concerned. Now? Not so much.

    I like composite rankings, but if I’m on Rivals and someone cites Rivals rankings then I’m not going to act like I don’t know what they’re talking about.


    ...unless I wanted to troll them I guess.

    That's kinda how I feel about MSU this year. I don't really care, we won't win anything big. But we are the youngest team in college football and rated top 25. That's what excites me.

    Wasn't trolling, and don't even recognize that poster / username.

    First link when I googled "2015 football team recruiting rankings" was 247, which had them at #37 class. Second link was Scout, which had the 2015 class ranked #35. Guess I should've done my full research and found the Rivals link, because I honestly didn't believe they had the 50th ranked class.

    With 4 top 10 classes in the last 6 years, UM results are underwhelming. Harbaugh at a minimum, is overrated, and just may be in over his head.

    Didn't pay a ticket by the deadline, so he was driving on a suspended license.

    Wow can't believe Dantonio didn't give him the money to pay the ticket ;). Seriously though, Dakitch seems dumb as hell. I feel like you have to take everything he says with a grain of salt.

    If you guys have money to blow, the recruiting drama occurring on the Illinois Scout and Rivals boards right now is amazing.
