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.”
Maryland coach Randy Edsall has granted QB Danny O'Brien a full release:
That probably means that O'Brien is headed to Vandy, although he says he's still considering Wisconsin. Bielema's rent-a-QB program is most likely over.
ESPN's Wolverine Nation has continued its "Exit Interview" series with a phenomenal interview with David Molk. The entire interview is great - if you're an ESPN Insider, check it out.
As you might expect, Molk came strong with it when describing his frustration with seeing how some veteran players handled the first coaching transition:
"That pissed me off. It kills me. That's why when this last coaching transition happened, right after the announcement that Rich was being fired, I stood up and said, 'No one is f---ing leaving. You're staying here. No one is transferring. No one is moving. No one is going anywhere. You're staying on this team. This is f---ing Michigan. It doesn't matter who the coach is. We're Michigan. You're staying.'"
Between this year's football and basketball teams, I don't think anyone could imagine a stronger group of senior leaders. Winning is always fun, but it carries extra meaning when you consider the journey our football and basketball seniors have gone through to bring these programs to their current levels. Hail.
Hope it hasn't been posted yet but there's a great diary entry by LTT on his commitment process over at 247. Read it here.
Awesome kid, really happy for him and his mom.
Earlier this evening, the Tremendous Facebook page was somehow deleted, and the folks at Tremendous would like everyone's assistance in rebuilding their presence there by "Liking" the page. This way, you can continue to get the best Michigan football recruiting information in virtually all known formats, as it should be.
https://www.facebook.com/tremendousmichigan or search "Tremendous".
Show whoever did this that Tremendous pages are a phoenix that will not perish. After all, this is Michigan, fergodsakes!
The title says it all. I have a feeling Bosch will creep into five star status on at least one or two sites by the time it's all said and done. Always nice to see our commits get some love.
Offensive lineman Kyle Bosch (Wheaton, Ill./St. Francis) was part of a flurry of Michigan commits this past weekend. The 6-foot-5, 282-pounder is impressive on tape and moved up slightly to No. 42 overall.
Another recent Michigan commit, outside linebacker/jumbo athlete Taco Charlton (Pickertington, Ohio/Central) moves up approximately 50 spots in our Top247- checking in just inside the top 100 at No. 99. After further review of his film and comparing that to his size and athleticism, we felt like Charlton has the type of upside that could not only make him a star in Ann Arbor but also land him in the National Football League one day.
A third Michigan commit to make a big move is offensive lineman David Dawson (Detroit, Mich./Cass Tech). He debuts in the Top247 at No. 195 after further film review.

Also, I think Shane was previously 15, and now he is 14. That's already 6 commits in the 247 top 100!
Per South FL Sun-Sentinel:
Not official, but apparently imminent. Not completely surprising given the coaching change.
