Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.
I am deeply disturbed by the combination of your post and your signature. Kids and wife definitely in hiding now...
Yeah fuck both USC's!!!
We need all the DB's we can get and from what I've read about Crawford he has the instincts to be an outstanding player.
Doesn't mean he's going there nor thinking elsewhere. They're recruiting him, which is going to be extremely common throughout the next month with our current commits.
He's gone if this coaching thing doesn't get figured out. This timetable is ridiculous. There isn't a positive associated with it.
Bitching about it in every thread doesn't change the fact that it's happening.
Oh my heavens! A guy you've never seen play might not come if Dave Brandon doesn't tell you what he's thinking. Like right now!
It doesn't matter if I know whats going on. The fact is no one knows what is going to happen. I could go until next fall without knowing who the coach is going to be. At this point I am indifferent.
Actually, according to your last 2 posts, you are the exact opposite of indifferent
In terms of how he is handling it? You're correct. My opinion is that it's wrong. I have come to the conclusion, though, that I don't have a strong opinion on who the coach is.
It's probably South Carolina because why would he choose a school in Southern Cal who is on probation with bowl bans compared to a school in Michigan that is going to be in a bowl game this season and will not be banned from the postseason next year?
And yes, just because they are recruiting doesn't mean he's looking to decommit.
As much as I loathe USC they are THE USC. There shouldn't be any mix up.South Carolina should be called South Carolina.
And while I'm at it there's only one L.T. and that's Lawrence Taylor. LaDaniian Tomlinson was a great player but nu-uh. First time I heard that reference on TV I was like "They did not just say that."
This is how the world should be God Dammit! (Ha-Ha!
Thinking Arby's? I know I was after seeing that giant carton of curly fries at the Big Chill. Mmmmmmm...curly fries!
If I was a senior in HS and I got an offer to play college ball somewhere it would be in my facebook status. Doesn't mean I'm going there. An alternative status update that is less cool would be,
"Burnt my brown sugar/cinnamon pop tart! Those are the best kind. /sadpanda"
You are so wrong. Strawberry all the way. And for you blueberry fans out there... no, just no.
They don't have brown sugar/cinnamon pop tarts in Canada. Or at least I haven't found them. Probably the hardest thing I had to give up after moving here. /sadpanda
Hey at least you have Canadian bacon. Or is it just bacon?
Amazon.com sells BS/Cinn pop tarts.
This can't be true. David Brandon specifically told Angelique C. that recruiting was not a mess.
Go Blue Dallas
Oh hey, Hobbes.
If you're going to post that image, at least get the caption right. --->
My apologies sir. I will let you do the honors...
I wouldn't worry about it right now. Nothing has changed with Dallas.
Commence reading between the lines in 3...2...1...
Yahtzee to you, sir.
I have really tried to maintain some clear boundaries between my UofM fanatacism and all other social/personal facets of my life (that take place outside of sports bars), BUT here I am, a MGo newbie and also (gulp) friends with Desmond Morgan on Facebook. What can I say, his highlight reel inspired me. Anyways, his status now reads:
This is a result of Dumb A$$ Dave. If he would just make up his mind and either keep or replace RR we would be in a lot better shape. Instead he is holding us in a Farve like hostage situation.
A$$ = A$^2
Use A$^2 please. A$$ is incorrect.
If your going to post this about Dallas' facebook what about all the positives he has posted recently. Most of his status updates say Go Blue! so unless some extreme changed in the last 24 hours I would not be worried.
Seriously, there is about 3 weeks until the bowls are over, and this will all be straightened out. For some of you, that will be an eternity. I suggest you enjoyu the holidays with your family, watch the bowl games, and maybe not freak out over what you can't control.
DB won't say anything until Jan 1 at the earliest, and maybe Jan 4th. There will then be a full month to either tell our recruits that RR is our man or convince them that JH will be even better. It's not like the announcement will be a week before NSD. A month is a while, and it will all get straightened out.
because of the dead period before siging day. That is only if DB makes a quick decision after the bowl game and already has RR's replacement lined up to sign a contract if there is a change Meaning DB had already done a coaching search or was only interested in one candidate, written up a contract, and it has basically been verbally accepted.
If JH comes back my view of the football program will be diminished. The man threw the program and it's academics under the bus despite being a former player and alumnus. You know the saying - with friends like that who needs enemies.
If there is a coaching change, how do we know the new guy doesn't have a list of guys that he'll recruit who are even better players then the current group we agonize over?
Gotta figure that whoever Brandon puts in charge will have it covered much to the AD's satisfaction. We are currently in the extreme test of loyalty to the Trust in Brandon motto. We should stick to that and know that he has a better handle on this program and what it needs then we do.
If this is the case and it works out, great. The problem is that I don't think there's any way you fill a whole class in a month. I know, you won't need to fill the whole class but I think that thinking the new guy would bring 15 guys with him is a little too optimistic. Maybe 5, but that hardly makes a class.
Luckily we've already got 11 committed, so adding those 5 would give us 16. And according to Rodriguez, we'll take 18-20 in this class.
So, as others have said above, there's no reason to freak out on December 13.
We could really use his two LB recruits James Vaughters and Anthony Sarao ;)
Just Saturday he posted:
Dallas Crawford Michigan hockey team woN 5-0 in the Big Chill... GO BLUE
If you're going to facebook stalk a guy, don't be selective.
Don't know about RRod status, can't say what Jimmy might do,don't know Dave Brandon inner workings, but did have some of that new pizza last night........yeah, it still sucks.
stay awhile with us Dallas.
Crawford is blue until further notice. If there is a coaching change, everything changes. Until then, i am not too worried.
I guess I'm not cut out to facebook stalk. The Dallas Crawford I found doesn't look like a gamer.
That Dallas crushed me in ping-pong just last weekend.
talk about 'hide ya kids hide ya wife.'
V necks are scary.
Well, we really need more defensive linemen.
Oh hot damn. A random Facebook post from an 18 year old that loves michigan.
