This may be why the Michigan "leans" like Treadwell won't committ. Once they committ, they are locked in. They can't even go be wined and dined.
When I graduated from the B-School, I'll admit I took interview trips to companies that i did not intend to work for . . . just to get a frre trip and be wined and dined and see parts of the country I had not seen before. It's a lot of fun.
I would LOVE to go on a recruiting trip to Oregon if I was a high school kid, even if I had no interest in going there.
I wonder how Texas, the king of early recruiting, handles these situations?
