At press time, Harbaugh had sent Michigan’s athletic department an envelope containing a heavily annotated seating chart, a list of the 63,000 seat views he had found unsatisfactory, and a glowing 70-page report on section 25, row 12, seat 9, which he claimed is “exactly what the great sport of football is all about.”
B10 Recruiting Wars - Season 13 - Episode 1
"Hoke Leaves B10 'Heartbroke' ";
Premise: A new day, a new season. The battles to be waged will be fierce, as Ohio has employed the mercenary to replace the fallen icon, and those Spartans have started to turn on field success into off-field mediocrity. Against the tide stands Michigans Man, Brady Hoke.
Brady Hoke: I just want you young men to understand, this is a commitment to both your future and the Teams future. We as a coaching staff will give our blood, sweat, and tears to make you the best Michigan Man you can be; on and off the field. We will not hand you anything, we will not take anything less than your best day in and day out. Earn every accolade you receive. Work hard, play harder, and you will win at life and football."
Commits: "WE ARE IN."
Dantonio: *stomping around in cape and Sparta helmet screaming in Gerard Butler voice*
"I.. win ....ALL THE GAMES. This... is... MY STATE. This... is.... MY RECRUITING CLIN... *whiny child voice* WHAT! This is my junior weekend!"
Hoke: *consoling petulant child voice*
"Shhhhh.. there there... Keep it down, I'm busy taking your 'leans'.. you'll get some guys once my class is full. I promise."
Meyer: *kicks open door and somersaults into room throwing national championship-ring ninja stars*
"See my guns! I will run spread-n-shredd. I will take ALL THE RECRUITS."
Hoke: "Oh you need offensive linemen… I'll take Fox and Bosch."
Meyer: " BRO! I THOUGHT WE WERE FRIENDS!"
And so ends the opening episode of B10 Recruiting. Hoke has resurrected the proudest program in sports, and put the conference on notice that Michigan is MICHIGAN... fergodsakes.
Okay, quick question gentlemen, since I haven't seen it covered anywhere else. I know that we didn't pick up anyone with the 2012 class that projects to center, and that after this season, we'll have one natural center on scholarship. We've now completed our five man haul on the 2013 O line, and likely won't be taking any more O-lineman unless a top 10 guy wants to commit.
Question is, who in the 2013 class projects to center? They're all 6'5" and above, and all listed as OT's on Rivals.
Standout DT Montravius Adams from Vienna, GA has been recently offered by Michigan.
He holds offers from a host of schools including Alabama, USC, Florida, Florida State, Oklahoma State, Nebraska etc.
He stands at 6'3" and weighs 280 and moves extremely well for his size. He is ranked 5 stars by 247 and 4 star by rivals making the Top 100 players in both lists.
Rivals #54 overall prospect, Patrick Kugler visited Michigan today. He enjoyed his visit so much that he tweeted "Wow Michigan was something special!", adding, #feelslikehome #GoBlue. I think this kid would be a great final piece to the OL puzzle, this is how he describes his game.
"I think the main thing that sticks out about me now is just the style I play. I go to the whistle. I know not many kids now are mean on the field and I play my last play every play. That really stands out to coaches."
