at least it's not just us?
Per Sam Webb, via Detroit News article http://www.detroitnews.com/article/20131217/SPORTS0201/131217001/1131/sports0201/Report-Michigan-recruit-Jabrill-Peppers-says-he-s-100-percent-going-Blue-
Seems like he talked to Brandon and received some assurances. If I recall correctly, Brandon talked with Drake Harris not long ago and assuaged some that recruit's concerns. In any case, great news and the most positive affirmation that Peppers will be in the class.
This is fantastic. In the spirit of bowl execs making big money from empty stadiums, one Syracuse blog had the idea of sending local youth groups to the Texas bowl since no Syracuse fans will be there. Donations cover ticket and food vouchers for the kids. The Texas Bowl has even gotten involved by dropping the cost of the tickets from $50 to $20.

Good article, but I'm posting it just so I can say ohmigod he's eating everything, oh the humanity. Next thing we know, he'll be eating pizzas.
Former Michgan QB coach and current OC for Va Tech flipped MSU QB commit Chris Durkin (2014 class) to Virginia Tech.
“A chance to play early,” Durkin said by phone Monday night. “At the other place I was looking at a two- to three-year wait before I really got a shot. And coach [Scot] Loeffler said he wants me to play early.” “He coached [Tom] Brady, [Tim] Tebow and most importantly to me, Chad Henne. … I’m confident that coach Loeffler knows how to prepare young talent for the next level. He’s proven he can do it and now I need to do the exact same.”
I have no idea if there is a presser tomorrow, I can only assume.
That said, this is me being sneaky/selfish and begging Heiko or another reporter/blogger who attends to REALLY dig in to get an update on the guys that are redshirting.
We haven't heard ANYTHING about them this year and I assume they're all practicing.
Who would be playing if they didn't want to burn the redshirt? (last year we heard about Drake Johnson). Who is showing promise? Most improved? ANYTHING.
We're all looking towards the future and it's going to be a loooong offseason if we don't have some speculation to go overboard with.
What questions/topics does everyone else have?
I've got two finals tomorrow, so what better way to procrastinate than to watch my Lions choke away the division lead!
