Do you think that Mike Barwis has an effect on recruiting? Specifically, I'm wondering if he attracts a harder-working, ambitious athlete to commit to Michigan. I feel like having an insane (m)animal like him running the program might weed out some of the lazier recruits, and attract the ones who are willing to work their hardest to improve. I feel like we might not get a Carson Butler or a Gabe Watson, but might get a Pat White-type, which wouldn't be reflected in the recruiting rankings. Am I just viewing the world through Barwis-shaded glasses, or is there something to this?
at least it's not just us?
