Mike Lantry, 1972
Gabe Watson will be a Wolverine next year.
Absolutely huge news, literally and figuratively, especially with the questionable status of Larry Harrison. I feel much better about next season already. Branch, Ofili, Biggs, and JVA can replace Harrison should he need to be replaced, but Watson has no equivalent on this roster.
start dropping benjamins all over town when you are the starting QB for a college team in Ohio that was just absolutely raked over the coals for giving Maurice Clarett improper benefits?
How dumb do you have to be to give Troy Smith benjamins after the college team you support when you're not busy being a long-haul trucker was raked over the coals for giving Maurice Clarett improper benefits?
A: Real dumb.
Dunno what, but it's enough to make tOSU suspend him for the Alamo Bowl.
A lot has cleared up in the past few days and Michigan is almost done. Guys left:
- James McKinney: UL is out after disastrous UL trip. Michigan is the one constant, but McKinney has been very hard to pin down. Guess: :)
- Antonio Bass: UM, MSU, VT, LSU, per the LSJ. The place he's always wanted to be vs. a chance to play QB. Still believe it's UM in the end. Guess: :)
- Marques Slocum: Won't announce until January 19th. Don't believe he'll end up here with a likely McKinney commitment. Guess: : (
- Nic Harris: Has already made a decision but will not announce until signing day so he can write a column for a local paper. If he's already made his decision that's bad, because he's leaning towards LSU with its Saban-questions. I think that means that he's going to LSU no matter what, as a lot of LA kids do. Guess: : (
That leaves us with a class of 19 + greyshirt Chris Richards. PSL LB Trevor Anderson and PA S Sean Smalls remain outside possibilities if there's an extra ship. And there's usually a January surprise where some little-known dude commits out of nowhere.
