At this rate we may be forced to break out a 1-4-6 defense for 2012.
Darian Cooper Eliminates Michigan
it leaves room for one more slot receiver, that we can take in this recruiting class.....
You inspire me.
You inspire me, 3 weeks!
For those remotely interested....

Neither are California kids.
It's not like these guys are 5 stars, but just sayin....
So if he's hired we will not hear from you anymore? Win/Win.
He works under different parameters as far as what players he can get qualified. The better students are usually found on offense. Not always, but generally. Plus we are dealing with a track record of player development on defense that is impressive.
Go read up on Harbaugh and what he has done out there. The possible future looks pretty good if that is the direction we go.
The man will give us our program back. Of that I have no doubt.
we'll be playing the unique 0-3-8 formation.
Jonathan Hankins would be pretty cool about now
New 0-0-11 scheme:just make them run more than one play to score. At least Penn State is in a worse situation in recruiting.
Should have taken 6'4 330 pound Hankins last year. He loved Michigan but was slow played. He saw a lot of good PT this year at tuoos.
..To have Sparty himself, in a blatantly biased manner, swinging you away from Michigan.
To help with that process he relies on the advice and guidance of Detroit Southeastern defensive coordinator Archie Collins
“(Collins) just wants to look up some information on the past defensive tackles that (Michigan) has got to the league because that’s my dream – to play in the NFL,” said Hankins detailing the advice he received from his coach. “(Collins wants) to see the statistics they’ve got and just get more information about them because it was a long time for them to offer me. He wants to see what that’s really about. He just wants to look into it (more) before the decision.”
This is why. Stop freaking out, two people don't make a defense.
This time in English.
"I don't buy this. He schedules his official, then he says Michigan is out two days later? I just hope the green shits in East Lansing don't get him; that would piss me off. I have a question. How the hell did they get Gholston and Lawrence Thomas over us? Since when does MSU get in-state 5 stars over Michigan? That's unacceptable."
Apostrophes are not toys for you to just randomly place wherever the fuck you want. They serve a purpose. If you're going to post stupidity, you could at least make an attempt at, I don't know, second-grade grammar.
we're getting into never-ending cycle territory. we were thin on d this year, we'll be thin on defense next year and the year after when RVB and Martin are gone... sigh.
I mean really? Why is this thread so depressing? Did anyone think Cooper was ever a strong possibility?
And how do you figure the D will be thin forever? You must think theres no talent there right now, I guess, but I don't think anyone can reach that conclusion in regards to first and second year players. Its TBD.
Yes, people did think that Cooper was a possibility at some point. He mentioned over the summer that he made a connection with Delonte Hollowell when he visited unoffically, and he said he was looking forward to coming back for an official visit.
Summer was a long time ago, and the talk was mostly fluff. Didn't see any strong beliefs recently.
So yeah, I don't understand when a thread about a single player verbally committing elsewhere goes all doomsday, and I especially don't understand it when the player verbaling elsewhere was expected.
just hit the "fast forward" button and get to the bowl game? Then we can find out what's happening with the direction of the team and move on. It really does seem like recruits are not happy with all the waiting, and neither are we. If RR was staying, you would think DB would come out and say that he's our coach for next year. His silence might be loud. Or not.
In our bowl game we will -
1. Score a ton of points
2. look like a highschool team on Special Teams
3. Have the worst defense in the nation
4. Feature two QB's
5. Turn the ball over at least 4 times
6. Make me want to puke over and over
7. Still somehow win the game
