This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
i expect to see more info in tmro's weekly recruiting piece. Your thoughts?
Big Ten (and some others) Rankings per Rivals:
EDIT: Current standings - not recruiting.
7 - MSU
10 - Wisconsin
40. Notre Dame
81. Tennessee (he he he)
Note: Look for big upsets this Saturday with #3 TCU traveling to UNLV and #4 Boise State facing Louisiana Tech at home! (Yeah, right...)
Stupid PI on Trent turns a 3-and-out into a 16-play drive, punt from the 35(!) bounces into the end zone for a touchback, Cianciolo throws a 43-yard screen for a TD against the best defense ever assembled: UNACCEPTABLE.
Because Boise State versus Louisiana Tech couldn't wait until Saturday.
And also because your work week is crushingly depressing and yes, even WAC football will do.
Texas draws the lead this week:
Our 2011 quarterback recruiting is still potentially not settled, but considering the current roster, the 2012 class looks to be the earliest that M would again be in the market for a long-term starter. Here's a look at some potential quarterbacks to keep an eye on in the 2012 class. These aren't necessarily prospects that Michigan is recruiting heavily, just names to keep an eye on.
|None||First 4 games of Junior season|
|Patti has thrown for 13 touchdowns to only 1 interception this year. He'll be visiting Michigan with his teammates for the Illinois game.|
|Ohio/Kenton||Ball State, Cincinnati, Missouri, Notre Dame||Sophomore Film|
|Mauk has a relationship with Brian Kelly at Notre Dame through his brother. His family has Michigan fans, but I think Notre Dame is in the driver's seat.|
|Hearing from Notre Dame, UCLA, Syracuse, Purdue, and Michigan. He wants to stay close to home, and has definite interest in Michigan.|
|Alabama, Arizona, Auburn, LSU, Oregon, TCU, Texas Tech, Others||First Game of Junior Season|
|Matt tore his ACL in his first game this season, but is going to be one of the best QBs in the country. He's interested in Michigan, and is hearing from them.|
|Teammate of '11 OL Chris Bryant and '12 OL Jordan Diamond.|
|Patrick is hearing from a lot of big time schools. Hasn't heard from Michigan yet, but is interested.|
|Former teammate of current Wolverine Cullen Christian.|
|None||Junior Season Opener|
|None||First 5 Games of Junior Season|
|Came to the Michigan/Iowa game. Teammates with '12 RB Will Mahone, and twin brother WR/DB Chris Davis. Versatile enough to play a few positions.|
Again, this is just a look at a few potential recruits. Michigan has obviously been in good contact with Nick Patti, and are in a favorable position as well. Matt Davis is an interesting recruit. He tore his ACL, but still has the top programs coming after him. Although he is from Texas he says he's wide open, and has definite interest in Michigan.
