Per Jeremy Crabtree at ESPN Recruiting Nation, Under Armour All-Americans were asked three questions regarding team fan bases and how they impacted their recruiting.
Here are the three questions and results:
1. Have fans on social media influenced your recruiting process?
74/90 All-Americans said No.
2. Which fan base did the best job of recruiting you on social media?
Georgia - 9
Michigan - 7
Penn State - 6
Alabama, LSU, and Oklahoma - 5
3. Which fan base was the most annoying on social media?
Tennessee - 9
Texas - 8
Alabama - 6
Michigan - 5
Florida, Miami (YTM), Nebraska, and Texas A&M - 4
I don't know how to embed his tweets, but I'll try in the comments below.
Morale of the story; Don't tweet at recruits or their parents and coaches, and don't be a jerk on social media if you can't follow rule #1. But please, follow rule #1.
Thanks and Go Blue!
SB Nation has a top 25 composite ranking that uses the AP Poll, Coaches Poll, S&P+, Massey, and witchcraft.
OSU, Clemson, Baylor, and LSU are the top 4 (same as last week). MSU is at 8 (+3) and we've fallen one spot to #13.
Feel free to vote for your favorite pub, but here is my plug for Conor's...
I have no association with Conor's other than the fact it's a great place in Ann Arbor. Also, very authentic and not just a crappy bar that brands itself Irish. It was designed and BUILT in Ireland and imported. Plus, there's good food and good spirits.
Here's more about it: http://www.conoroneills.com/annarbor/about-conor-oneills-irish-pub/

Final polls are out and UM is #6. Makes sense. We are below the final four teams and Arizona. I was happy to see Duke taking a huge plung.
This post is going to be as random as you like, so enjoy. While perusing ESPN.com under the NBA mainpage on this enjoyable Friday night, I happened upon a random Sports Nation poll. It poses the question: Who will be the bigger weapon for Team USA in the 2016 Olympics? Anthony Davis or Kyrie Irving? I clicked on Kyrie Irving, and surprisingly or unsurprisingly, Kyrie Irving was winning 77% to 23% on 26,865 national votes.
Next, I clicked on View Map, because that's how I do. The map, surprisingly or unsurprisingly, showed all states siding with Kyrie Irving--BUT ONE--which sided with Anthony Davis.
Now, my task for you is this: without looking at this poll--or after looking at this poll, I don't necessarily care--guess which state picked Anthony Davis and write why you guessed it.
