Apparently Alabama offered our 2015 safety, in which he replied:
"Alabama is a big offer, but I'm 100% to Michigan"
One could say it validates his commitment to the good guys, soooo... 2014? Good news?
An Alabama offer to one of your commits/targets is always good news and bad news. Hopefully he stays true to his word, but I couldn't imagine he doesn't at least ponder his options (and wouldn't blame him). Not saying decommit, but just think about it privately.
Take that, Saban!
Ya we showed him. Good job boys.
We need to follow Spurrier's lead.
If you visit Bama, avoid the bagmen!
Well that's not awesome. I mean, awesome that he's good enough, but man. That's just not a great thing.
Today he's saying he's not going anywhere. Gareon Conley said the same thing when he got an OSU offer. I'd rather have commits who aren't good enough for Alabama than have a commit leave us for Bama.
Signing day is still 9 months away. As has been mentioned in numerous other threads, how UM performs this fall will probably have a big impact on the recruiting class. If UM falters, some of these verbals might start looking around.
if you really would "rather have commits who arents good enough for bama than have a commit leave us for bama" then youre setting the bar pretty low and writing off tons of great athletes. i understand many fans want to win football games at um with roster consisting of natl merit scholars etc but just not possible. bama has owned the past 10 years and their #1 recruiting classes each yr form basis...they go after the most talented players, period. if um wants to compete on national level and stop preaching history then they need to recruit accordingly like bama or fsu or osu, etc. anything else is unacceptable. if you really dont want um competing with bama for prospects then you should prob accept losing records of 5-8 or so now or just stop following....if um does not attempt to compete for those top players every cyle they have no chance ever getting to playoff
Never thought I would see zyzz on MGB.
To seeing everyone in the goodbye thread.
when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?
It's a joke from a movie people. I figured I would save some poor soul the embarrassment.
Forget it he's rolling.
... The tough get going.
I have my history degree from UM, so I know that.
And I have a history degree from UM, so I know that too.
at least, I would hope so.
I never saw it and I was born in '71. (But I do know that iconic scene) Sadly, I was old enough for Animal House's ripoff, Nerds.
Take some time and watch it. You are missing out on some classic cinema.
I'm sure this offer isn't committable, just like DaShawn Hand's wasn't.
1) I wouldn't trade our DBs for Alabama's DBs
2) We have one of the best coaching staffs in the country
3) There are a lot of really good reasons to choose Michigan over Alabama
4) we are out recruiting Ohio and MSU right now, our class is really good at this nascent stage of the game
Everything seems to be going super from my perspective. Well, everything except for our all-19 year old o-line. But that will work itself out over the next few years.
P.S. stop freaking out, it's embarassing
but lets be honest, Hoke has never had a higher rated class than Urban and that certainly won't change this year and likely won't change most years.
I'll go with ever. Urban is too good of a recruiter and willing to use any and all tactics necessary. Brady relies on the "family atmosphere" which is a good thing and had a chance to bring in success with a non-awful offense, but is not going to lead to a head to head over Urban. We'll see what works out better in the long run.
Urbz has also lost some kids after signing. Those steller classes have lost some guys due to transfers. (refuses to look any up just knows).
Stay away A-hole!!
