I don't understand why he took 2 4* white guys when he could have taken the 2 5* black guys. Doesn't he know we need fast DEs that can rush the passer, not slow white DEs that just run stop? THIS ISN'T THE BIG EAST!
fair point that
Black players are only suited for the QB position.
You fucker, you stole my post idea.
craig roh runs a 4.6 40 so hes not exactly slow. lets be content with what we got and hopefully we will pick up one of the 5 star guys.
I guess we'll just have to move Gallon and Teric Jones to DE. Get to the QB!!!
This post is a good litmus test for people's ability to understand the internet.
we should want white DEs?
our RB is white, and we have a black QB coming in. It's opposite land!!
Those are known as Uh-Oh Oreos.

I mean c'mon. That was just sitting there, someone had to do it.
I think Mike Martin is already of mixed black/white heritage...that has the potential to be pretty complicated.
What happens if they use a 5-2 or a 60 front? Double stuffed?
Why does he only like gigantic D-linemen, but tiny offensive skill players?
we could have taken two 5*'s like you claim. Lets just be happy we got two commitments and two pretty decent ones at that. I live out here in AZ and have had the chance to see Craig Roh. Dude can play! Plus he had an offer from USC and they own this state so we should consider him a real steal. I really like this class RichRod is putting together. He really addressed a lot of needs. I would still like to see another LB, S and an OL. Plus a couple late surprises at impact positions would be nice as well.
THIS IS MICHIGAN. WE HAVE OUR CHOICE. ANYWAY, I JUST WANT MICHIGAN MEN.
If we don't get a UFR NOW I am leaving this site.
fire richrod and get a better coach like Schiano or Grobe. they know how to recruit i bet.
What's happening is that RR is recruiting white players to make the transition easier on the Michigan fanbase. Why do you think Kevin Newsome decommitted and Tate Forcier took his place? Two black QBs would be too much. Recruit too many black players, and see more articles talking about how "Rich Rodriguez is a horrible fit for Michigan." See? RR is beginning to realize that he is no longer in the Big East, and the constant fumbling on Saturday served as a painful reminder for him.
spread offense-check; black QB-check; white RB-check; white DE's-check; hispanic coach-check. what's the over under on how long it takes for all the 'older' alumni to self-destruct and blow up?
O/U: 6 games, depending on wins and losses. The older alumni only look at the box score anyway.
They're just DEs... this year, perhaps more than ever, we've learned that no position is gender specific.
I've been impressed that none of the announcers have made a big deal about McGuff being a white tailback on any of the three networks that have covered our games this year. Of course, I'm not naive-- probably a producer somewhere gave specific instructions not to bring it up, as they shouldn't.
A football player is a football player is a football player. Welcome ROH! Welcome LaLOTA!
"They're just DEs... this year, perhaps more than ever, we've learned that no position is gender specific."
Well, I have a hard time believing that Stevie Brown is a woman, despite the misleading name.
I'm pretty sure you mean race specific. Although if we want to have some of those lingerie clad football playing girls come in they can give it a shot.
I don't care what you say - Garret Rivas was a woman.
He lived on my floor in West Quad. Definitely NOT a woman.
you got me boys... that's what I get for working, posting, watching TV and having a conversation at the same time.
Nice form, Shock, Chitown.... hehe
is killing the program.
Well, Mike Barwis has been turning a lot of our players into little girls.
Furthermore, why did DickRod dispose of the Michigan Terrible Towel? Now everyone is going to think that the Steelers invented it.
We could have signed T. Pryor as a defensive end.
That was an Awesome post!
How do we know RR has even seen these DEs? I heard in the Big (L)East you just pick a recruits name out of a hat - call him a few times and hope he commits. RR needs to learn that in the Big10 there are at home recruit visits - I would have thought that BTN commericial taught him that.
Rivas was a chick!! that explains the wide hips and big ass.
While we're on the race topic, I've been thinking for a while about a potentially tasteless Rivals caption, "Michigan makes LaLota an offer he can't refuse." Just sayin.
Rivas also had boobs. Seriously - think about it.
By the way - Mooseman wins the "commenter of the day" prize for his last comment.
Why take these prima donna 4 and 5* kid from other states? HE HAS TO RECRUIT IN MICHIGAN TO WIN. Sparty is KILLING us on commits from Mi!
