stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly

needs moar usage
so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
If you're gonna go please be in the first round.

"CoachBrown TheMBlock @CoachBrown3 2015 5-star ATH George Campbell tells me he will definitely be in AA next weekend. It will be his first time, BIG step in his recruitment!"

Herm's special shirts. I bet it has 22 buttons and ruffles.
But I don't want to be a pirate!
Aww yeah. About time we had someone to run those explosive deep routes like Manningham

And according to the same twitter handle, Derrick Green and Da'Shawn Hand are "boys" and Green is "going to try hard to being him to Michigan."
Are you trying to tell me the number 1 recruit from Virginia of the 2013 class that ended up at Michigan is trying to convince the number 1 recruit from Virginia of the 2014 class, and clear number 1 overall prospect currently, to come to michigan?
I blacked out coach did we win?
If you see someone in an airport with Michigan logos on luggage and they are wearing a pilot uniform come say hello.
Bring a friend so he can give out 2 tshirts
To make team -136 shirts too??
Does that refer to the recruiting class from 271 years ago? Great class even if it was a little lacking in elite wide receivers.
That much back then so WR wasn't an emphasis. You're still a clever guy though!!

George Campbell is nuts good. He might be the next megatron, as crazy as that sounds. VERY few have his size/speed combination.
5 star? I don't see it listed anywhere, but I could easily see him being rated that high when the 2015 rankings come out.
Getting such a big time recruit...for the 2015 class....to come up from Florida...that is just huge.
His recruitment will probably last until signing day in 2016, but its super important to get interest early. Go Blue!
No 2015 kids have stars yet, but when they do, he will have 5 of them.
Is your last second sarcastic? Or a typo maybe? I doubt he misses his freshman season deciding where to go.
Oops! A typo.
I've had issues editing my comments sometimes. The edit button does not appear next to the reply button, and yes I am logged in.
That's my fault - once someone replies to your comment, it's locked in so your editting powers are gone.
Ah okay, I didnt know that. Thanks for explaining.
It's probably for the best to lock in the comment once a reply has been added to it. Makes sense. For clarity, I am being sincere in this statement.
Jayru Campbell, Josh Alabi, Mikey Weber are vital for the 2015 class. They all are at Cass Tech.
Anything else is icing on the cake IMO. Those are some special kids. Have seen nearly their entire CT career and they deserve the offers they have (Campbell hasn't been offered by Michigan just yet but he has been by bama and ND).
Of course I may be a little biased.
When the ADept sells special jerseys and gear, you'll see my picture next to the targeted customer crowd. A sheep.....but a Blue one.....
I just don't want Jayru to go to OSU. If that means Michigan takes him, I'm ok with that.
Is Jayru a pocket passer at all? i know the coaches said they would still take a scrambling style qb too,i just dont know much about him.
He's primarily a pocket passer that happens to be a really good athlete. Good decision maker with a great deep ball.
He's got offers from Bama and ND already so it's safe to say he'll be one of the top 2015 QBs in the nation. Must get for us especially since he's at Cass Tech.
I got the shotgun. You got the briefcase. It's all in the game though, right?
He may be good, but I think the ND/Alabama offeres aren't that indicative that he'll be great. They have the luxury of pulling the offer without killing a pipeline school if they don't really want him come 2015. Michigan has to be sure they want him before offering as they have a longstanding relationship with the school. ND/Alabama wouldn't outright pull the offer, but they could stop calling much and show less interest, would be hard for UM to do the same.
We might pursue Jayru to ensure an immediate commitment like Wilton and protect Cass Tech, but Dillman is an elite QB who is very comfortable in the West Coast O.
Not sure we can pull him from Cali.
"Everybody wants to be a hero, so to speak. But it takes everybody." - Charles Woodson
They may make an offer now. I remember they said they would not offer a 2015 QB till they had their 2014 QB.
There has been very little contact between our coaches and Campbell in recent months. It's clear that there are other QBs higher on their wish list than Jayru for the '15 class at the moment. He's going to have to prove himself to our coaches at camp this summer in order to put himself into the mix for an offer.
Rivals has him listed as 6'5'', 198 lbs with a forty time of 4.4 secs. And he's in the 2015 class. He's going to be a monster. Also, he is being recruited by Jerry Montgomery.
yea, i could deal with him and Harris out of KY to kick off the 15 class.
So - Damien Harris and Mikey Weber... What are the chances we only take/get one of them? And who's the more highly-rated player? And, if Harris is more highly-rated, is the difference so great that it's worth missing out on Weber?
I have a lot of questions, you guys.
I think chances are very slim that we would get both. In my opinion, Damien Harris is the superior RB prospect.
Twitter - Recruiting Update: May 20
Campbell is a potential monster.
Too bad Artavis Scott can't make it up.
Does anyone know if these guys are coming for a Michigan-only trip (as opposed to seeing a few of the Midwest schools or something)? Cole is supposedly very high on Notre Dame.
In regards to Green trying to recruit Hand, I'm sure it won't hurt to have Green host Hand when he makes an official visit here.
Add a couple of 2 stars and steal a handful of Ohio 3 stars - we are set. He is 2 classes of "playmakers" in one player.
I thought I read somewhere that he actually wanted to play DE. I could be wrong though.

For reals, player? I'm late for soccer rehearsal. Ok I belong in the drinking thread
"I have three kids and no money. Why can't I have no kids and three money?"
This kid is a flat out monster. MUST get him.
"Fortune leaves always some door open."
After the usual attrition I think we see the 2014 class swell to 19-21 schollies available. I think we need to hit wide receiver, tight end, secondary, and defensive tackle as priority.
There is god, there is family, and then there is MICHIGAN FOOTBALL
