"The face of the operation is Briatore (referred to exclusively in the film by his colleagues and angry, chanting detractors as "Flavio"), an anthropomorphic radish who spends most of his time at QPR plotting to fire all of the managers."
I just caught up with 4 star ATH Kris Frost. He told me has spoken to Brady Hoke, and that the Michigan staff will be coming down for an in home visit. He's not sure what the date will be, but it will be soon.
Frost hasn't heard yet from Auburn on whether or not they'll accept him. They told him they're waiting to see who goes pro to see if they have room. If they say no Michigan has a great shot.
Unfortunately Michigan is out of the running with California WR Devin Lucien. Chris Singletary called Devin today and said that Michigan will recruit him for defense, and Lucien doesn't want that. He said, "It killed my heart, because you know how I felt about Michigan." At one point Lucien had told me he was just waiting to make sure his scholarship would be honored and he would commit to Michigan. They told him this morning that they want him as a defensive back.
I was the guy who tried to tip RR and the recuiting staff to Dan Grochowski, of Rivervirew, FL HS class of 2011. I personally saw this kid kick FG's from 55+ in game and punt some 60+ in pre-game warmups. He is big like 6' 2" or 6' 3" and well over 200, I would guess 225/235 range. I called Michigan recruiting and filled them in. I also chatted up his brother several times during the season. I haven't seen anything more in the local press on him. Some links;
Apparently he has offers from the military academies...thats it. He has a good ACT and his brother says he wouldn't mind kicking in the big house.
So, if somebody would call this kid we might have a kicker. RR was talking to him before the OSU game.
I'm sure that a million mentally challenged would call in recruiting "leads" but is there a legit way to ID a potential recruit to the Staff without coming off like a tool or a crazed, uninformed fan?

This is my first post on this site. I have listened to Brian on radio and have read him on this site. It take it he is in the "rebellious" faction described on his post today. What is unclear to me re Brian is this. Did he think DB should have fired RR after OSU game and aggresively moved to hire Harbaugh, or was he ok with waiting until after Gator Bowl to fire RR but should then have aggresively gone after a Dan Mullen? Does he also think Hoke was DB's first choice all along, or does he think he hired him b/c he thought Hoke was the best he could do? Heaven help us if the latter was true. FWIW, I think I would have been most happy with Mullen.
KyleTurley tells @3hl1045 he will be on sideline of SDSU vs. MICH in 2011: "My boys (SDSU) are going to whip that ass."
Really?? Just let it go dude.
No explanation needed.
Lets also bring back the Alabama fans from last year for old times sake:
Although I'd much rather side with Alabama fans than Auburn. Auburn is pretty much to Alabama as tsio is to us.
