stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly

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.
another delightful side effect of a 14 team conference
We all knew another ten year war was coming, should we be surprised that Urban's going to try to shut down a pipeline?
Chaos is found in greatest abundance wherever order is being sought. It always defeats order because it is better organized.
My initial reactions was like is this a joke? But I'm not upset. He's a 2014 recruit. There's plenty of time for him to choose the good side, but if not, oh well. It's not like he's the only CB. I'd rather have Parrker Westphal.
Do you bleed blue?
this is a 2014 kid. you think he won't want to take visits to Bama and LSU when they come calling? there's a long way to go until 2014 NSD. regardless, osu will get its guys no matter what happens. just like we'll get ours. we've had our pick of the litter from ohio for the last 2 years. dymonte thomas, kyle kalis, mike mccray just to name a few. i'm not worried about it.
It's been a lot. Its been a roller coaster that for some reason seemed like it would never get good. But you know what? We kept fighting. It's like that old saying goes, "Those Who Stay Will Be Champions." -David Molk
It would have been nice to get him but I'm more worried about getting McDowell and Marshall. Also flipping Harris would be very nice too.
Time to start winning or this stuff will get worse!
More dong punches in case you missed yours from earlier.
Edit: I'm frustrated, like everyone else. Let's start beating Ohio State at sports, mkay?
Big loss at a position of need from a school with a history of sending their D1 kids to Michigan.
At the same time, it's for freaking 2014. Other CBs will commit to us.
alot of kids in detroit doesn't like michigan. they are osu fans so hoke really will have to recruit the up and comings kids hard to try and flip them from ohio state and the sec schools. We have to remember michigan was not any good from 2007- 2010. Thats when florida and ohio state were the hot things.
What you gonna do when hokemania RUNS wild over you?
Kids in Detroit love Michigan so it's not that trust me. My son and his friends rock Michigan gear faithfully and I can barely ride thru the city without seeing Michigan gear everywhere on our young people. I rarely see Ohio shit or even state.
What? Have you been to Detroit? That's such a load of crap.
Denard has spent the offseason working really hard and smiling at people.
Seems like Hosey and one of Tech's DEs really want an ohio offer from a recent Jermain Crowell tweet
Fuck man. This up-coming season is so important for recruiting. Let's face it as much as I fucking hate urban myer the guy is a proven commodity. A good year next year will help... But that is a big IF. Have to beat OLIO next year. Absolutely fucking must win given its at home.

Well, at least you're moderately novel.
If the haters don't hate you then you're doing something wrong. - David Cone
It was not expected. Oh yea, it hurt too.
I'm sure the basketball game is contributing to this, but no need to be so butthurt. Urban is a great recruiter, and maybe some kids just want to make their own legacy at other school. Yes, it still stings that he would choose them over us, but we will get ours and they will get theirs. Simple as that.
Now, if there was a recruit to have a complete meltdown about, I would think it would be Green. A top player at a position of need? That's a must get.
I blame Adidas. Who would want to play in those horrible bowl unis
had pretty cool bowl uniforms this year, actually.

You have got to be fucking kidding me!
what up dog
Probably just wants to make his own way. It was just a matter of time before one of the Cass kids pulled a Brady Hoke on the home town team. Hopefully we will take it on the chin better than the Ohio fans do when we pull talent out of their area. I love the focus on the Midwest but we need some other area to recruit, too.
Not the proudest day for the MGoBlog community, I see.
Kid wants to go to OSU. Good for him. There will be other recruits.
Man, there are some comments and reactions on the board that make you cringe.
Why does it suddenly change once they're at the school? Ohio State players are bashed around here consistently.
A brief look around indicates the majority of the criticism isn't exactly from the "old school" of posters.
These new posters need to get the hell off my lawn.
Let's not forget our 2014 recuit is a stud from Ohio!!
Days like today make you wanna punch a baby.
One has to wonder if Webb will be able to play as anything more than a nickel corner given that Cam Burrows and Eli Apple are coming in next year. I wish him well, but not when we meet in the game.
Oh how I hate Ohio State!
Multiple OSU analysts think Burrows will end up playing safety, as he's likely to put on some weight and his hips aren't quite as fluid as coaches might want for cb.
Just have to turn on the press to other recruits once we close out 2013!
3-3-5 til the day I die y'all
Bray Hoke was a Michigan fan growing up because all of his friends were Buckeye fans. Safe to say that Webb is a Buckeye fan because his teammates are Michigan fans or Michigan committs. Just wanting to stand out, it's not the end of the world.
Is it OK to say I hope Dawson drills him in dodgeball during gym class?
He must really like basket weaving!
It's tough being Blue in Columbus!!!
Level here tonight is equal to an average night at mlive. Big fricken deal, a 2104 recruit declared to Ohio, who gives a shit, I'm pretty sure we'll sign a few kids. It's amazing that kids between the ages of 17-21 hold so much control over a typical day for seemingly grown adults.
Denard Robinson......They're not going to catch him!
I think it has more to do with the basketball game than losing Webb
It's not a big deal. You guys jumped out to a big recuiting lead for the 2013 class and tOSU didn't pass you in the ESPN, Rivals, 247 rankings until the past month. There is plently of time for you to catch us for the 2014 class.
Tough day to be blue...
GO BUCKS and welcome to BUCKEYENATION Damon Webb!!!
When the fuck did Ohio pass Michigan in the 2013 recruiting rankings? Oh fuck off too
I know you people aren't exactly what we call "smart", but CLASS GRADES MEAN NOTHING.
Go ask texas how having #1 classes have worked out for them.
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.....
It's a great day. The freshmen got a taste of rivalry intensity in the Big Ten, spotted Ohio a bunch of points, and still almost won. The pressure of being undefeated is off, and JB gets a lot of coachable moments on tape. This will make the team better, and it's much better that this happens now than in the NCAA Tournament.
As for Webb: BFD. Ohio gets another player: not exactly "man bites dog" here. So what if he goes to Cass Tech. He's only one player.
We need to fully acknowledge the threat in Columbus.
Urban is focused on 1 thing - winning championships. OSU is win-at-all-cost. Their last 2 recruiting classes are ranked above ours (per Rivals). They are recruiting nationally (opposed to our regional focus). They are willing to run a SEC-type program. [They hired a SEC coach for starters.]
Brandon, Hoke and company must raise the bar.
- This might sound negative, but I believe UM can strive for greatness and outpace them.
"Everybody wants to be a hero, so to speak. But it takes everybody." - Charles Woodson
Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't Scout say we have the #1 class in the country? Hoke is putting together a monster class that is recognized by every major recruiting site. We lost out on one kid, and even that is not set in stone. There's a huge threat in Columbus and I think everyone recognizes that, but don't for a second think that they Meyer doesn't recognize the threat in Ann Arbor.
coaches use the Scout to trumpet our rise. The classes are basically equal.
Urban on ESPN at NCG, OSU getting the pre-2013 accolades as a top team, Rivals ranking, etc. He won't go quietly.
This will be a long, tough dog fight.
Colorado, North Carolina, Massachusetts etc.
I guess they need to go intergalactic like Sparty?
M has an entire year to flip Webb. He'll be like most young adults in his position and eventually open things up again. The kid is 17 fergodsakes.
I'm going to treat you all the same. Like dogs. - Bo
Maybe I'm in the minority here but I think the concerns of some of the MGoBoarders are legitimate. Obviously there are better ways to say it, but I agree with a lot of the vitriol. It hurts to lose a highly touted Cass kid to Ohio. No way around that. Meyer is an incredible recruiter and has proven he can get it done. I hate to say it but I really think it's going to be hard to consistently beat those guys.
Denied by UM multiple times, nonetheless lifelong M fan.
You should get off Urb's dick. He's winning recruiting battles because of his name and a 12-0 season. They barely beat us (their NCG) last season in the shoe with all of their amazing recruits. I mean come on they squeaked by Indiana and Purdue and everyone is making them seem like Bama.
It's mindless not to recognize Meyer's accomplishments. He's been there for one year. You mean to tell me that you're not concerned about his on the field success when he's recruiting like this given more time there? I don't buy it. I hate the guy too, but he can recruit and coach with the best of them.
Brady Hoke is doing a much better job recruiting than Urb. He doesn't have the name, the rings, or the school that has been on top the last 5-10 years yet he has put two top 5 recruiting classes together and has gone into Ohio and snagged top talent like Ferns, Kalis, McCray, Thomas and others. Of course Ohio is going to get a ton of top kids they have a high profile coach and are a high profile program.
Don't forget who is in Hand's top five without even receiving a visit.
