I was wondering if any of you had any sort of inside information on RichRod and Co's recruiting tactics, specifically their use of Michigan's academic prowess to lure in recruits and their parents. There are only a handful of schools that have both excellent academics and athletics, so it boggles my mind that if parents want their sons to have a backup plan in case of injury that there isn't already a line to come to Michigan. I know I may be extremely biased since I graduated from Michigan's business school and I understand that there are a million other variables for recruits to make their final decision, but how much does RichRod truely stress the value of a Michigan degree when he is recruiting? I feel like he and his staff will never really understand and use it to the fullest because they did not receive a degree from Michigan. If we were able to drill into the parent's heads (especially their Mom) the true value and importance of a Michigan degree I feel like we would have a tremendous advantage against other schools. So does anyone know how Michigan's academics are pitched to recruits? If so how extensive is the pitch and is RichRod taking full advantage of the tools he is given?
