I don't think they changed Les at all actually
national champs baby

stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly
rundown of Michigan's riser
needs moar usage
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?
We don't pull scholarships without cause. Stop with the LS hate, it's old and makes you look like a bitter ex-girlfriend.
Needing to add new prospects to the board down the road as we have no sure things at this point. Can't we continue to recruit him but make the offer non-commitable?
He wanted FSU over Mich..I wouldnt give him shit.. He's wasting our time and we need to focus on LT and Green.. Also, his dad reminds me of a man that killed 5 hookers while at SMU
It's a good thing there's no room. Kids will think twice about choosing another school.
...just one man's opinion.
Curious timing right after the BBQ. Maybe he saw how close all the '13 guys were? Does fsu have something similar or is it all hookers all the time?
Its called a royale with cheese
Did anyone else read that Zeke Pike just got cut from Auburn for ANOTHER disciplinary problem?
Gotta be a false rumor. Brian would post it on the front page if that were true

Talk about it in The Bunker
- - AUBURN -- Quarterback Zeke Pike, who signed with the Tigers last winter as a three-star prospect, has been dismissed from the team for a violation of team rules.
The native of suburban Cincinnati was arrested on June 24 for public intoxication. That wasn't his first brush with trouble - Pike was suspended twice during his senior season at Dixie Heights (Ky.) High for disciplinary reasons.
"I'll be better because of all this," Pike told AuburnSports.com.
Pike, 19, was 4-of-8 for 42 yards in the A-Day game earlier this year. He enrolled in January and earned time with the first-team offense during spring practice when Clint Moseley went down with a shoulder problem.
Sophomore Kiehl Frazier and Moseley, now a junior, are expected to challenge for the starting job throughout fall camp. Auburn also has a true freshman, Jonathan Wallace, on scholarship at quarterback.

Check the front page dude
I don't know how I could have missed that. I was looking for the "chatter" from Levenberry's Dad and stumbled across that article. No harm, no foul.
Too noob to initiate new thread, but Scout has a free video with the director of scouting (Kennedy) and 1 of the 3 subjects he talks about is recruit most likely to make an impact, and Kennedy not only selected Green, but stated he would move up to at minumum the #2 RB on scouts rankings.
Looks like Rivals will not be alone at naming him a 5* and having him ranked blue-chip elite.
For the strength of the pack is the Wolv, and the strength of the Wolv is the pack.
No matter where EJL ends up, this serves Ann Arbor.
How Michigan handles this situation speaks VOLUMES about Hoke & Company. There is much to be gained by gently closing the door as it appears to have happened.
(1) It illustrates to other recruits that people who decline U of M may very well regret the decision, the more they consider it.
(2) It illustrates that invitations to play in Michigan do not last forever, even if you are very, very, VERY good at football. And those invitations disappear early with this staff.
(3) Michigan will NOT sell recruits out to displace someone for the flavor of the month. Unlike other schools/conferences. So if you come to the party late, no matter how good you are, if there is no room, the room will not be made for you at someone else's expense.
But then again, if you commit to Michigan, Michigan commits to you.
Saying no to Lewenberry (unless a spot legitimately opens up) brings us closer to Treadwell/Green/ any other current and future fence-sitters, by making our program look stronger, stabler, and more honorable.
If an LB spot does legitimately open up, Lewenberry commits here before Hoke even completes his sentence inviting him to the program.
But the news here is not whether we have room for Lewenberry.
The news is that Treadwell and Green must consider whether we shall have room for THEM for much longer. And it's not because Michigan is strongarming ANYONE: it's all courtesy of EJL's dad.
Thank you, EJL's dad!

I don't think I have tried that flavor of frozen yogurt yet.
It's somehow appropriate that my #100 is a "D'oh!"-type of post.
(But my point still stands.)
it would be nice to use the last few spot on some skill position recruits
You don't tell your own commits the meaning of "commitment" includes no visits to other schools, then turn around and let a kid who reaffirmed his commitment to another school come for a visit.
Unless you're Urban Meyer.
Also, we had room for two LBs and we now have two. I'd like to have E.J., too, but we have plenty of good, young talent at LB. E.J. made his bed, now he had to lie in it. Welcome to southern football, son.
I really think an analysis of integrity's impact on a football program--especially recruiting--would be an awesome idea.
There are a bunch of things that complicate the issue (having a successful NFL-caliber coach being one of them), but for once, it seems like 'doing the right thing' is paying off.
...you lost your place in line. Hoke should still have interest in the kid given that he's an elite talent. But our primary targets are Green and Treadwell and we need to play our cards to ensure both their commitments first. If it turns out we lose one (or both), THEN we can turn to Levenberry if he's still available. This may go all the way to NSD before it resolves.
Good problem to have btw.
The decommitment makes a lot more sense in light of this:
They no longer call me Bisbiño
a t-shirt that says "HOLLA ACHA BOY" but written with a shoelace. It would sell well not only in Ann Arbor, but in the section of Florida between Lake Okeechobee and Pompano Beach. This is the area known affectionately as the Pahokee-Deerfield region.
Wow, that rapper is terrible, just terrible.
