The nutty Michigan coverage isn't so much about Harbaugh as it is a signal to the Big Ten that Fox wants to party.
So far Dawson has looked dominant. Fox has looked slow against the speed rush. Jake Raulerson will definitely pass him in the Rivals position rankings soon.
Michigan offers 2014 OL Tommy Doles from GR Christian per Allen Trieu https://twitter.com/#!/AllenTrieu
He is teamate of 2014 WR Drake Harris.

Saw this on the @umichfootball twitter feed.
I guess players get to do these things when you have an alum who is the owner of the Mets franchise.
Michigan has made the top 3 for Kendall Fuller. Most consider it to be a two way race between Va Tech and Clemson, with Michigan in 3rd. Most analysts are betting that he goes to Va Tech, and I'm inclined to agree. But if we get him on campus again, who knows what could happen?
Anyways, the information is publicly available in the title of the article on the Michigan Rivals' site. Just click on the link: http://michigan.rivals.com/
A friend emailed me this link today and it sparked an interesting convo so I thought I'd bring it to the board.
My stance is that this method isn't a good way to determine over/under ratedness but rather a case against the use of preseason polls. I'll bet that over the time-period this data was collected that Oklahoma and Texas (who are 2 and 3 most overrated teams respectively) have the most wins and or highest winning percentage.
This method does not penalize teams for being obscure in the college football landscape. Obscure defined as not ranked preseason, and not ranked postseason. A prime example of this would be Cincinatti. Up until the had Brian Kelly as their coach they were non players in college football. Then they get BKRAGE! as their coach and they go on a 3 year tear and all of a sudden they are the 8th most underrated team in college football since 1989. This metric works on a yearly basis at best. The other issue is that the higher you are ranked in the preseason poll limits you on how "underrated" you can be that season.
"Im sellin new college hoodies and snapbacks for 12 dollars!$$ i aint got use for none of them, i dnt wear nothin tht isnt labeled Nd hit me!" Smith tweeted.
He followed up the tweet with photos showing sweatshirts from Florida, Ohio State, Purdue, USC, and Miami and a line of more than a dozen hats stretching across a dresser.
Looking for interested buyers, Smith posted his phone number in one of the tweets. In the coming hour, Smith's Twitter timeline and cell phone started getting throttled.
He eventually backs off saying he was "just having fun." He said he bought the stuff orginally ao I don't see why he can't sell it, but who knows what the NCAA would do.
