Apparently Ben is coming to Ann Arbor on Sunday and is being recruited "pretty hard" by our staff. He also hints that we might take three LBs.
According to the Brian Hamilton of the Chicago Tribune here is the offical word from the NCAA:
Official NCAA word on Eifert tweet: "A student-athlete cannot publicize a prospective student-athlete's visit." Bylaw 13.10.5.#NotreDame
Here is Eiferts Tweet:
Anyone know what this does to the recruitment of Jalen Smith for Notre Dame? They currently lead for him.
A very nice piece on Patrick Kugler's commitment to Michigan: it is the offer at his birthday and the Big House that did the work:
Over at Eleven Warriors, there is an article entitled LINK: The Clucking Up North. The column is about Molk's comments dissing OSU Center Brewster, Wisconsin's Konz, and other comments from Michigan recruits. (Pipkins on Schutt, and Magnuson's tweet. (**** OSU. It doesn't matter who their coach is, we will continue to whip their ass, and enjoy doing it.)
While I don't care for Ohio, Byrnes has a point. Sometimes it is better to shut your mouth, and let your play on the field do the talking. In my way of thinking, Michigan's record against Ohio over the last 10 years doesn't warrant a lot of trash talking. Hoke gets this, and actually, he must have conveyed it to the team. The guys doing the yapping are either done (Molk) or haven't started yet (Magnuson, Pipkins, even Dymonte Thomas.)
When we have flipped things, and dominate Ohio for multiple years, I'll feel better about guys talking.
