This year's Tom Markowski and Tom Lemming collaboration on the in state classes. Last year's article was a sham, but this year's seems a bit more put together. Highlights include:
Michigan: "Even the linemen are fast," Lemming said. "(Inkster quarterback) Devin Gardner is the centerpiece. Devin is the future but there's talent everywhere. This is the class that will define Michigan over the next few years. The talent is there."
Michigan State: "They did a great job recruiting instate," Lemming said. "What happened off the field hurt them. They ran into problems off the field and didn't have a great year on it. It's a good class, not a great class. They need to recruit better outside Michigan and hit the Chicago area harder. Purdue has done that."
Well, at least Lemming can see that "owning the state of Michigan" isn't quite what its cracked up to be, at least by those in East Lansing and those working for the Freep.
