elsewhere in awesome things kickstarter made happen
And you think you're crowded at Michigan Stadium
IMPORTANT: Ondre Pipkins not involved.
Michigan rescinds scholarship offers of kids who do this. Dawson no longer has the option of choosing Michigan.

Who is the most realistic replacement at this point?

I don't know that there is anyone who is "most realistic."
The only time this happened was with Pharaoh Brown, and rumors at the time said that Hoke pulled his scholarship offer because of the way Brown took a covert visit without alerting the coaches.
I doubt he ends up at Michigan, but that also doesn't mean he doesn't still have an offer
They no longer call me Bisbiño
Wilcher said he no longer has an offer. I'd say that's a pretty reliable source.
The only quotes from Hoke on Verbal commits taking visits is that he won't hold a spot for them. Not saying what you wrote isn't true , just saying I've never seen it. Wondering how my first post was off topic lol.
How about Anibal Sanchez, now he most likely hands it off to the pen.
Blank.....Blank......You're not looking at the big picture here.
Wrong thread derp.
I don't wish any luck upon him, good or bad. He will not be attending Michigan, so I am indifferent about his future.
my hot asian wife love me long time
The loss of Dawson drops us below LSU in the current Rivals Team Rankings. At this point Scout hasn't updated the loss on their site.
in a way this seems like a no-lose situation, really. Seems like there are other really good players we are in on for 2013, and other OL for 2014. So, while Dawson is good, I don't see this as devastating, and I'm sure he'll do well wherever he goes.
So it goes.
Psychologist here but Im thinking he may have done this in part due to the death of his Dad. Perhaps he feels he can distance himself a bit from it by moving away. Hard for any one but really tough at that age. Anyway, hope he does well where ever he ends up.

Good, bad, or indifferent, he knew the rules before he committed, so long!
cheat, cheat, and cheat some more, and when you get caught, do the right thing, lie!
if it was meant to be it would be.
Our o-line will be perfectly fine. He's not a make-or-break commit. Good luck to him in his future career as a Florida Gator.
Who cares, besides Vernon, who we didn't even get, all those guys are schmuks
You are talking about a number of current players including a couple of current starters. There is no reason to be rude towards kids on our team. Thomas Gordon is a very solid starter at S and BWC is serviceable at DT. We haven't seen yet about kids like Hollowell, Richardson etc.
There is an old saying...if you love someone...let him go...if he comes back....it's too damn bad because Hoke has a policy in place that doesn't allow commits to visit other schools...so you're shit out of luck, son.
Yes I got him a gift. He had a kidney stone. You piss a rock through your pecker, you deserve more than just a pat on the fucking back.
I'm sure the coaches aren't shocked, as people change their minds all the time. It really is better for Dawson to move on if he gelled better with they guys at Florida.
The coaches have also been pretty clear: unless you are positive you want to attend Michigan, don't commit. They have encouraged recruits to visit schools, and to see what is out there.
On the bright side, we definitely have room for Treadwell, Green, and McQuay. This also opens room for a late bloomer or two, whether on the OL or elsewhere.
Regarding the OL, I have heard that the coaches are really high on Ben Braden, one of the current redshirt freshmen. I think people are forgetting that we had a good recruiting class of OL in 2012, along with the four remaining in 2013.
It would be great to add another solid OG, but if one doesn't materialize, I'd rather have an extra scholarship to give on signing day, or hold one for 2014.

Id really like to see that scholarship used on a big defensive lineman.... we seem solid going forward on the O line.... for whatever reason it feels like we could use another DL.
