Easy Tiger...CMXI has been proven to be an asset to the board. If he points something out, like he stated, its a suggestion and his opinion.
F that Shiz!!
Post whatever the frick you wanna post! If nobody likes your post/topic...it will fall by the way-side soon enough.
I would have never looked in any of the recruiting threads for something like this. I thought it was funny as hell.
Screw a cluttered board. It will work itself out.
Thread is fine and wish there were more new threads. Guarantee there is a bunch of things I missed in some of these other gigantic threads. Like others have said I do not not have the time nor do I want to go through a zillion pages. We should encourage new threads and like the one poster said, they will run their course.
This is the second time he has posted the same kind of comment, and I am simply pointing out reality. Nothing personal but he does not pay my subscription, does not own the site, and am simply stating I do not need his editorial, if he thinks my thread not worthy keep driving. Just My Opinion....Tiger, LOL.
It would be different if the pinned threads were direct information and not a lot of general conversation, then I could half way agree...but they are also the banana party up-vote threads in size, and sometimes content.

I usually wouldn't comment on BS like this, but CMXI got too much flack for no reason. I agree with him on this topic. Threads don't need to get created for every vine or tweet. It's not a problem, but it's unnecessary.
Like I said all not trying to slam CMX just saying that I believe this was not a 2014 recruiting issue, and the pinned threads have become so massive it is like when someone send you a 17 page email. No offense was taken by me and not trying to be combative, because I do see his point but I also see those threads as losing value after they become so large or a mall hangout for lack of a better term. No offense was meant, if it was taken as such than my apology.
Just to kinda prove how threadworthy this was, 20 hours on the front page and virtually no discussion outside of whether it was threadworthy.
And this discussion is less about this topic, and more about the three dozen topics that have been nothing more than a copy pasted tweet.
Manning is going to end up being a great hire. I love his passion, enthusiasm, and his how he will be able to connect with recruits factor.
Guess he didn't have to put any dialogue in his OP to stimulate conversation. This thread just brings to light something that a few of us have the same opinion on and I don't think we're the minority. Also goes to show you how threads will go sideways and get bogged down with off topic crap which is why a lot of us don't mind seeing new threads with update info as opposed getting buried in these pinned recruiting threads
Agreed. Montgomery's departure was a blessing in disguise.
People should be encouraged to start threads on any Michigan related topic they want, imo. How hard is it to scroll past something someone finds uninteresting... sheesh. Getting an early start on carpal tunnel syndrome prevention I guess. Loosen up. It's not that serious, I promise. This isn't MGoBlog.
You're my boy, SKWD. Keep doing what you're doin'.
Is Manning going to be coaching both outside and inside backers?
It is my understanding that Manning coaches the SAM exclusively and Smith handles the other two LB positions.
Agree wrt to Montgomery leaving being a blessing in disguise.
I thought he was outside linebackers and Smith coached the MIKES.
You are correct.
Damnit guys! If you want to argue about the thread making policy make a friggin thread about it!
I'm trying to learn about a new asset to the Michigan coaching staff. His youth and energy seems to be the perfect complement to Hoke and Mattison's wisdom and laid back attitude
Not sure how UM actually labels their defense(don't have access to their playbook), but it is possible that they could consider both of the guys that aren't SAMs interior backers.
SKWD, does Michigan label their Will as an outside backer?
JZ as far as i know, we also now they will bring them up almost like and end, and I have heard Mattison say that the Mike and Sam are interchangeable in his scheme.
You mean MIKE and WILL are interchangeable and SAM and WDE are interchangeable
yeah that is what I meant sorry, dealing with food poisoning today so half out of it.
Does Manning actually work with the WDE though? Or strictly just the SAM. SKWD, seems you have some inside knowledge, how has Cam Gordon looked this off season. Seems like he is ready to blossom at SAM. Thoughts?
Yikes, food poisoning is no fun at all. Best of luck with that, wish you a speedy recovery.
Just LB, Mattison has the DEs
I actually really dislike the fact that so much of the discussion goes on in the 2013 recruiting thread. It's borderline impossible to keep up with the conversation, let alone read every single post in detail. I would greatly prefer separate threads for a greater number of topics. There would be far better discussions since the topics would be more narrowly focused. If today proves anything the 2013 recruiting thread can get hijacked quickly.
