"It's not about last year or who's here or who's isn't here," says your head coach. "It's about getting out here and competing and seeing who is here, and that's where we're gonna go."
This morning on 1050, Sam spoke with John U. Bacon, who we all know is a pretty big Michigan guy. They asked him what Bo would've thought about this OSU drama. John told them "I can tell you what he did say about Tressel, and this is an exact quote". Then he went on to say that Bo told him that he thought that Tressel was a "snake in the grass". He of course thought he was an ok guy and a great coach, but he just didn't seem to trust him all that much. Even after death, Bo is still coming through to make my day!
With all the focus on tatts in C-bus, got thinking about ink in Ann Arbor. What's your favorite UM tattoo that you've ever seen? I personally loved that Michael Phelps wore the block M when he made Olympic history: http://www.tattoojohnny.com/wiki/michael_phelps_olympic_celebrity_tattoo
Enlighten a geezer. I realize it can probably vary from a little buckey leaf to a full arm inking, but does anybody have an idea what the going rate is for the size and type of tattoos that the Buckeyes might have gotten. Are we talking $75 or $3000?
A few weeks ago I had reported that Stanford commit DT Aziz Shittu would potentially take an official visit to Michigan this fall. Shittu, who is a five star prospect and ranked 12th in the country overall by Rivals, says he's now considering opening his recruitment up completely.
When asked what had changed with his recruitment Shittu said, "I haven't talked to [the coaches] about it so it's not official, but I want to enjoy the process," he said. "I'm thinking about opening everything up." So he hasn't officially decommitted from the Cardinal yet, but by the sounds of it he might be back on the market soon.
Shittu currently boasts 21 scholarship offers that includes Stanford, Michigan, Auburn, Florida, Tennessee, and USC to name a few. If he does reopen his recruitment that would likely mean he would take summer visits. "I'm not sure yet where I want to visit, but I'm going to get out there. I'd like to make it out to Michigan," said Shittu. "I like [Michigan's] tradition and the style of play they want to do."
His commitment to Stanford tells you a lot about the quality of person that he is, and his 3.8 GPA gives you an idea how much he values academics. Whether he decommits from Stanford officially or not, it's safe to say that his recruitment is far from over.
