Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.
Rodriguez abandoned WV before a BCS game...
It wouldn't be the first time a coach was let go before a bowl game.
Coach Carr announced his retirement before Michigan's bowl game, did he "abandon" his team?
You have to announce a coaching change ASAP, IMO, for recruting. Brandon letting RR twist in the wind like this very likely opening up all sorts of opportunities for negative recruting.
Losing this recruit is not the end of the world, and foretells nothing more than that he is de-committing. The ratings by the scouting 'experts' rarely is as accurate as everyone believes. Go Blue!
I agree it isn't the end of the world.
But is far as the rating goes, you don't have to rely on the experts; his film and stats speak for themselves.
Boys.... remember, national signing day isn't until February. Nothing is final until that day. Decommit or not.. it isn't over until it's over.
He is an early graduate. His target date is much earlier than signing day.
This board doesn't have a hard edge.
@ clisimm, we all know you can't predict scout, rivals, espn rankings etc, but when a kid has 46 touchdowns in one season, 2,700 yards and can receive, return, run while playing in one of the most talented states if not the most. He might win national high school player of the year at the army bowl, i believe the hype surrounding Dee and would be very sad if we lose him because he will bring a brand of RB that we haven't seen in RR system yet.
It doesnt make sense to me to do that To me that means that you're more concerned with where you're at than where you're going.
Well boys according to rivals D Hart is now an Alabama commit!!!
It doesn't say that.
I just linked it, and it say D hart alabama commit when i click the link
It doesn't say that.
And it doesn't.
Well then im getting the rivals site from the future cuz when i look up dee hart it says alabama commit
The Michigan Rivals site no longer lists Dee as a Michigan commit.
I just checked it now at 1151pm. Rivals lists Dee Hart as an Alabama commit.
Unless the Alabama logo in the upper right means something else, I'd say he's going to 'bama.
Wish i wasn't just decided to log on saw the thread went to look at rivals and there i saw Dee Hart is now a bama commit per rivals
He's not a commit u retard, it only has his final college choices listed as Alabama.. It doesn't say he is committed to them at all.. Not on their page with committed players, or on his personal page.. It only lists Bama as his only college choice ...
he is no longer listed as a commit either.
Well this is an excessively long thread.
Dee is the recruit I am (was) most looking forward to. I remember the night before the Michigan State game trying to log into our beloved blog but I kept getting an error because so many people were trying to get the announcement. This is a bummer but it is not what happens to you but how you handle what happens to you.
Let me check........yep, I still love this team!
I am getting VERY pissed with this process. I admit I like the way DB handled the NCAA investigation, but this process is making me very sour on him very quickly. We are dealing will kids lives.. You cannot run a place of higher education like a fortune 500 company. It is almost like people are trying to sabotage RR.. Fans complain that RR class does not look that well, well this is the reason.. He is not only trying to sell michigan, he has to assure parents that he will be there for the entire 4 years.. Totally not fair.
wow. it feels like a mass suicide in this thread...
I HATE HATE HATE putting any stock in high school players. I mean, seriously. I'm sure Hart's a good player, but life will go on if he goes elsewhere.
You know what would really help this team?
Putting a hurt on either Florida in the Gator Bowl or a 10-2 Big-12 Team in the Insight. Let's worry about that. And I don't buy that the Bowl means nothing for Rich or Brandon. We're going to have a great chance to beat some quality teams/programs (even if Florida's down, it would continue our SEC dominance and help recruiting in the SE).
I agree with what you are saying.. but they are starting to add up. I seriously think that our team being young will actually hurt us if RR is fired. These guys can leave and still have a couple of years to play elsewhere. I know they say the "love it here" but seriously what would they say? I hate my teammates and I hate the University, but I love the coach!" I seriously think we are on the brink of something terrible if RR is fired. I am usually a "glass half full" kind of guy, but I think this mess is going to turn out bad.. I think we are going to replace RR, Harbaugh will take over, have a couple of losing seasons and bolt to the NFL similar to Pete Carrol.. just I feeling I have.
I implore you, MGoCommunity, please please please do not leave messages on the kid's Facebook, Twitter, or anything else about this. I'm sure he had his reasons for switching and while it's catastrophic for our recruiting class it's ultimately his decision and we need to respect that.
Best of luck Dee. Wish it had been with us, but you gotta do you.
Harbaugh !! Harbaugh!! Harbaugh !!
MyGod this MoGoMeltdown! 428 comments and counting . . .
I just wanted to be a part of a 400+ post thread.Purely epic. I feel like I'm a part of history.
To be truly epic.
That fuckin' Saban and his bag of lies
He sits on a throne of lies.
Well he was a big reason I was excited for next year. Sad day...
Firing DickROD ASAP is whats best for the program, and no amount of neg rep is going to change that, although it might make you feel better.......
It's not going to happen ASAP, I'm pretty sure what with all of the CC posts that DB has said nothing will be decided until after the season is over. What you don't get, whatever happens is going to happen and people on this board will deal with it accordingly. Now go away!
Don't you have some women's velour tracksuits to manufacture?
Dude, I think you need to ditch the pipe and let the bong resin clear out a bit before using anything more complicated than an Etch-A-Sketch.
wasn't dickrod a banned word for the time being, where is that thread at
period can not come soon enough. Dark day as we bid adieu to DH.
Well I sincerely hope that RIchard Ash, Craig Roh, etc beat the crap out of Dee in 2012. Other than that particular game, good luck Dee you sound like a good guy.
Everybody's freaking out lol
Losing a top recruit like this is a reason to freak out. Especially when this team needs more top talent.
If you wanna freak out about something you have literally no control over, then so be it. If he switches to Alabama, that's his choice.
Well, so much for all those claims that DB/RR had quietly assured recruits that DB is all-in for Richrod.
Only one recruit can salvage this class: A star DC to turn the D around. RR's got a month to find someone he can work with or it's his job. My money's still on Game Over, Man though.
Didn't RR say at the banquet tonight that he would not change his DC? That blows my mind, if true.
It's hard to believe that less than 3 years ago it was Peanut Butter Jelly Time
And now, this...
