I don't think they changed Les at all actually

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?

Several people on twitter are saying he chose Iowa.
I hope to be like dang for large sections of the season.

So.....Sam Webb is hearing wrong then? Please say yes.

Per the Twitter, Sam Webb says that it looks like he chose Iowa. Conflicting experts?
Side note, is there something about our recruiting pitch that is making it more difficult to close these late deciding kids?

How is this flamebait?
Further down in the thread someone made the comment that Brady Hoke is not building a reputation as a closer. That's not marked "flamebait." I love this blog, but sometimes it's not the most welcoming place.
I know there's a lot that goes into the commitment process, and chances are if we've been after these recruits for a long time and they still haven't committed to us, well then there's probably something holding them up. Nevertheless, coaches overcome those hurdles all the time. I simply tried to stoke conversation about what could be going on. I very much appreciate the class that we've got coming, but ideally, I would like to see additions made to it.

curses and cranberries!
I'm a hoke hore and I'm proud of it.
Well my weekend can't possibly get much worse.

But i'll must settle for this P-Chem homework instead...

I'm working on PChem as well.
Well... trying to anyway.

Are you in 260?
How's 230? 260 is a bitch.
Not too bad.
The homework is pretty easy, but this exam on Tuesday might be tough.
A lot of it is review from high school chem so far.
Gottfried. She's the only one this semester.
Good luck on Orgo. Those exams blow.
8 or 9? I'm in the 8. Something about manipulating numbers in 230 (and physics and math) short circuits my brain. Oh well.
I actually liked orgo, especially orgo 2. Orgo 2 lab was the most fun I've had in chemistry.
I know from experience dude. If you know what I mean.
9. Glad I don't have class at 8am on Friday.
I'm with you on that one. I actually really liked orgo 2 as well. It's pretty much the reason I'm a biochem major.
That someone keeps marking these as off topic. They might not pertain to Kozan to Iowa, but honestly IMHO, it's a lot better than the crushing depression filling the board tonight.
= death. Gotta long semester in front of me

fellow chemists? booya
Michigan football = life
But we're all in the same boat. The same nerdy nerdy boat.
When people ask about my research, they just think I'm really smart. Nerdy, but also smart. lol
Alright. We used to like ... get recruits, right? What the hell is happening? I must have gotten spoiled by those frequent 'twin hello' posts we used to get.
Mom, MGrad and life long fan living in So Cal
Seriously. I must have pissed someone off because suddenly all of my posts are getting negged. If I was being all hostile and stuff, okay... but seriously. Que paso, hombre?
It's the middle-schoolers (in mentality if not in age) who are now infesting this site. I suppose it's an unavoidable consequence of MGoBlog's popularity, but some days the commenting—and the juvenile, gratuitous negging—doesn't seem far off from MLive. If Brian and the mods don't take advantage of the voting details feature and start getting control of things, MGoBlog will become the equivalent of a middle-school cafeteria.
Nice. Good to hear that the posts of someone like yourself are also getting negged. I've got good company, it seems.
Now back to my regularly scheduled overinfatuation with all things Michigan Football...
Somebody get Hoke a clip of Alec Baldwin's speech in Glengarry Glen Ross because we are striking out left and right.
Hmm well Brady Hoke not exactly making a reputation for himself as a great closer. Oh well, still one hell of class.
We overlooked this class lately and have been spending too much time on next years class. Lesson learned..
commits in June count just as much as commits on signing day. People just notice late commits more.
There is no time, sir, at which ties do not matter.
As early as this staff did, its easy for fans to get spoiled. Look what these coaches did with kids they didn't recruit.
Everybody put the revolver down. The world its not coming too an end. Stay positive furgodsakes...we have a great class coming in...seemingly great kids and we will get a couple more quality kids!
way to get all pissy because some of us aren't ready to jump off the cliff.
enjoy your miserable life.
Seriously, everyone needs to grow up.
"Hoke can't close!"
This weekend has been worse then the time I sat on a pine cone. Now just wait to hear about grant going to oklahoma and we can finish this agony
"What" ain't no country I ever heard of. They speak English in What?
Garnett was initially a long shot, as was Reeves, as was Kozan. Shouldn't be a surprise. Disappointing yes, but there is still one hell of a class coming to AA in 2012.

Well, the depth chart for center will certainly be ... interesting ... in a couple of years.
there is no way we close out this class with our current OL group. we have no depth, especially if lewan leaves after this coming year. hoke and co will almost certainly flip someone on sigining day a la roy roundtree, even if they have to reach a bit for a 3* type with some upside.
Wheres the GD sssssnake oil already?
What's going on with this world!
In like a lion, out like a lamb. Ohio State is out recruiting us and will not even miss a beat with the sanctions. Looks like OSU is positioning themselves well to have another 8 year run.
Those who stay will be champions!
I would say that with a likely finish of 1-4 for our remaining targets my reaction is not an overreaction. If you cant see that Urban is out recruiting Hoke then that is just your maized colored glasses. Whats worse is that he out-recruiting Hoke with just two months on the job following a 6-7 record. If we cant beat Urban for recruits after going 11-2 then when will we?
when we beat their ass on the field next year. we have several ohio recruits this year which bodes well for the future battles against meyer.
Only matters on the football field. Maybe the naysayers should field a team..oh and coach one too.
what a bunch of fucking Chicken Littles
Yeah we beat OSU one year while they were having their worst year in a decade. Everyone claims the tide has turned, blah blah blah. The hell it has. The momentum is clearly on OSU's side. Hoke has done nothing but beat the worst OSU team in a decade, and barely at that. Meanwhile, OSU is getting anyone they want and is out recruiting us like a madman. The field matters, but recruiting is where you get the team to take that field.
