The nutty Michigan coverage isn't so much about Harbaugh as it is a signal to the Big Ten that Fox wants to party.
While I have been a huge supporter of Hoke, I cannot for the life of me understand by he has not hired a DC yet. I fully understand the need to not rush the decision - look at how poorly RR's defensive choices turned out - but at the same time, there are less than 2 weeks until signing day. I can't help but believe that if we have a staff in place, we could make a late run at some kids that hadn't previously considered us.
Same concern regarding QB coaches. With only Denard and Devin on the roster (until and unless Tate returns), it wouldn't hurt for us to pick up another QB in this class - it's not like we don't have the room. By my count, we still have 3 spots open - DC, QB and D-line coach.
When can we expect to have the staff filled out, and does anyone have any realistic thoughts as to who might fill out these spots? I had heard rumblings about Loeffler for QB coach, but nothing recent.
Not that I'm a "star whore" but by my count Michigan "should have" at the very least 2 5* players commited. Kris Frost and Dee Hart and we were very close to Sammy Watkins and he earned his 5th * FML. In happier news Lawrence Thomas lost a star
The deadline to enter for the draft was Saturday.. and I don't know about you guys, but I for one am shocked that all of the disciplined OSU players (Terrelle Pryor, Dan Herron DeVier Posey, Mike Adams and Solomon Thomas) kept to their 'agreement' with coach T and are returning for next season. now let's hope michigan makes them regret their decision to stay, and sends them out of the B1G with a loss next year!
The new Scout 300 was released today.
