no, YOU'RE off topic
I found this pretty funny.. A Cleveland.com article highlights Kentucky's recruiting successes in Ohio this year with TE Coach Vince Marrow (yes that Vince Marrow) as its focus.
Almost instantly the Dowell twins of Lakewood St. Edward HS, both 4 star recruits FLIP to Michigan State.

Jarius visited Rutgers this past weekend and told Coach Kyle Flood that he will be visiting Michigan this coming weekend (with his parents). In explaining his decision, Jarius noted that he is "pretty solid" on Rutgers, but Michigan has been his "dream school growing up" so he just had to see it.
Considering that this is from a NJ newspaper (which is the de facto local newspaper for Rutgers in the area), this seems to be pretty dang positive for Michigan. Rutgers has thrown the kitchen sink at keeping Jarius, but he doesn't want to shut down the process until he sees Michigan.
I know you're all with me when I say, "come on and sign with MICHIGAN, Jarius, come and live your dream!"
Adams' parents will also accompany him to Michigan, the final stop he'll make before selecting his collegiate destination.
"I just wanted to check it out since it was pretty much a dream school growing up," Adams said. "I just want to check out the stuff that I've never seen. That's pretty much it."
Adams explained his position to head coach Kyle Flood at some point throughout the weekend. Apparently, Flood was measured in his response.
"He wasn't happy about it," said Adams. "But when I explained to him why I was going up there, then he pretty much understood and he was okay with it.
"I just told him it was a team that I liked when I was young, so I wanted to check it out," Adams continued. "You only have this opportunity once, so you have to make the best of it."
In addition, Jarius cares about "academics" and "jobs" post-graduation. I don't know how Rutgers can say with a straight face that they are better than Michigan in those regards. I think if the coaches put on the full-court press, we stand a very good chance with Jarius.
Here is Karan's profile and Hudl film. I'm rather vested as I've mentored and coached the kid for 3 years but if your'e looking for a kid that fits the "Michigan Man" mold. Here he is. 4.0 student works a nursing home and does other community service. Very coachable...natural leader and every other set of kind words you can piece together. Talked to Coach Singletary about him today and sent his stuff to Coach Wheatley. Hopefully things move quickly. He is an Iowa commit with Florida and Notre Dame pushing hard in this final week. Has offers from half the SEC....Arizona etc.
Jay Feely was just on the Jim Rome Show talking about the time he was the subject of a "Saturday Night Live" skit in 2005. I had never seen this before.
Tom Brady, of course, has hosted SNL, and he was parodied this past Saturday for his press conference:
Which leads me to ask: Have any other former Wolverines made it into an SNL skit? Harbaugh HAD to have been on there, right?
