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
Just like Denard doesn't juke div 1 players like he did in high school right?
....when given a hole he was able to run but he didn't put many moves on anyone.

No he wasn't busting 85 yd runs, but there were a few times every game where he was close. You have to be blind to not tell he had some sort of injury(s) that was limiting him to some degree; he and RR even said he hasn't been 100% for quite a while. But still, even though it was less than the first half of the season, if you think he didn't juke very many people you weren't watching the same games as the rest of us.
On another note, pretty awesome you met Jay Feely at Costco!
Goodness gracious. That would be nice. I will wait and see though.
I gave you a +1. And not because the song title is perfect for this situation, but because this is the best song ever.
I just sang and danced the whole thing. Twice.

That's just like your opinion man...
to convince a top recruit to come to Michigan! Go soccer team!

I would just rather not hear anything more about Dee Hart until I hear Dee Hart is enrolled in a school.
Sportscenter.com raves: Sgt. Wolverine, "Michigan's biggest fan"!
Obviously he's a huge futbol fan.
At this point, wake me up when they all sign LOI's.
thanks. +1 2U, sir. The coaching controversy, the recruiting, it is what it is. I can only read so much more. As long as the coaches are pounding the pavement and working on recruits, that's all you can ask for. I hope we get a good class, but I'm done waiting on the minutiae of of recruiting.

Wake me up when it's confirmed that they are in pads, and on the practice field with the team in August.
Wake me up when he trots onto the football field for the first game. White and Turner happening again will always worry me.

On the fifth night—possibly the sixth—a breeze arose.
It was cool and dewy.
You're right, I will indeed be staying up for all of that. Nothing better than reading waaaayyyyy too many threads on the same topic over and over again.
Also the monthly "what should I name my dog?" posts
Oh man, I can't miss those, what if I get a dog?
what if you have a kid?
that "Greenday" is one word...
did they change their name when they started wearing excessive amounts of make-up?
All of us beyond a certain age, definitely including me, need to get a life. I am addicted, admittedly. But it doesn't make sense to be so up (or down) on whether (or not) Dee (or Zettel, or Frost, or Walls, etc., etc., etc.) commit to Michigan, or elsewhere. Terrible sentence, but you get the drift. I vaguely recall DB stating that a program doesn't depend on one player. And Magnus feeling potentially Meh about the de-committment of Dee. I hope Hart does what is best for him. And I hope that means coming to Michigan. However, at the end of the day, it only matters so much.
are still 17 year olds. Imagine what he must be hearing from people, each of them with their own agenda, however well-intentioned. If he chooses to play for a bunch of folks who don't really have his best interests at heart, so be it. It does not make him a bad kid, nor does it mean we might have been better with him than without him.
But... somewhere there is a kid looking at the same school. His talent would appear to be very near to DH's, but deep down, in his heart, he knows Dee is better and he is troubled. He won't admit his fear, not to his parents, not to his coaches, and certainly not to us via the media. That fear will drive him to another school, perhaps Michigan. Once the die is cast, it is up to genetics, the staffs, and the football gods. That young man may in fact be better, or more resilient, or maybe just luckier. Recruiting is a gamble, less so for coaches that will cut a kid loose ala Saban, but a gamble nonetheless. This is why we twirl with each incoming class of freshmen, we are like gambling addicts in front of the slots.
Now imagine if there had been a girl involved, and count your blessings.
Edit: Dee, you look much better in Blue than in that gawdawful red!
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift
I was just talking to my wife last night about the same exact thing. This is ridiculous, I am 30 (I'm a man!!!!!), and I had a shitty morning yesterday because I was thinking about losing a 17 year old recruit. I even went so far as to say I was giving up Mgoblog for a while because it isn't good for my overall mental health. I obsess over ridiculous Michigan football related happenings that I have no control over. Then I got back from dinner and promptly checked to see if there were any updates on anything. This is a sickness.
Alabama's check bounced?
Take it easy, I'm only serious.

I just really really can't wait to see Dee in a winged helmet.
I liked it better when I didnt know anything about the recruits until signing day announcements by the coach.

Unless this is Tom or Mama Hart, I'm not buying it for now.

Our snake oil was better. We just snaked oil the snake oil.
I just burnt my 'denard has hart' t-shirt .....
With all of this nonsense surrounding Dee Hart, have we heard anything going on about other recruits visiting AA this weekend? Also, it seems as though the confidence of Dee in Michigan parallels the back and forth media sensationalism surrounding the coaching situaiton. Only time will tell but time is hell ....
Tell me when it's Feb 2.
Dee will be enrolled by then
Refer to Tom's last post stating that Dee may not enroll early now.
but I think there's still a high probability that he enrolls early.
Unless I hear that from Tom or Mama Hart, I'm not buying it for now.
