Essentially, we recognize that every now and then [the state of] Ohio produces something worthwhile- which we proceed to rescue by bringing it back up north.
More seriously, anybody that frequents this blog knows all of the important coaches and athletes that have come to Michigan from Ohio. We recognize that without pilfering the buckeye state, Michigan wouldn't be in the position it is today. We accept this though because by doing so we hurt our mortal enemies not only be depriving them of strength but by then using that same strength against them.
Thus, we appreciate Ohio- as long as it's the bits of Ohio that have had enough sense to move up north.
I, an many other MGoBloggers, enjoy the perspective of a rational OSU fan. Thus, I'd encourage you to keep posting.
I agree, I would like to see him stay as well. Unfortunately, he’ll likely get dissuaded by all the clever “lol, cooler pooper” and “O$U sux!” comments he gets.
Haha, nah. If I got offended by comments like "you poop in a cooler" then it would likely mean that I do, in fact, poop in a cooler and hate being called out on it.
Disclaimer--I don't poop in coolers.
But If you were in a bind, I'm guessing your fandom would lead you to pack an Igloo in a pinch...
Pinch. See what I did there?
My UM roommate pooped on a keg. He's still my friend. So, it's ok if you poop in a cooler. I won't hate you.
Well, they obviousely committed to Michigan so they can learn to read good. sheesh.
Eh, just all in fun. Everyone here realizes the importance of Ohio to successful football, and that goes for the entire Midwest too. But we can still make fun; all part of the rivalry. And obviously, when a native son of Ohio decides to attend the University of Michigan, they transcend the existence of an "Ohioan" and elevate to another, greater, plane in the universe.
The ones that can read come to A2.
...it's liking ohio and/or going to school there that really scrambles your brain. Plenty of Michigan Men have been born all over the country, Ohio included, but they weren't ohio fans.
Even LeBron hates Ohio.
A good point. I would also like to point out that for probably 99% of the rest of the world, no distinction is made between the states of Michigan and Ohio. They're just failing rust belt states where it's vaguely cold and the people there are kinda the same.
Just sayin' from an outside perspective.

Oh Ace, Ace, wherefore art thou Ace?
He’s denying his father and refusing his name this very second, I bet.
Kid has impressive acceleration to the ball carrier. Might be making reads a hair slowly, but damn he brings the wood once he locks on
Bolden 2.0? Relatively under the radar guy with sound technique that hits like a truck. Also similar size. There's a long time for him to climb some recruiting rankings as well.
He is a lot like Bolden - a tough, heady inside linebacker with similar size. And he's about where Bolden was ranked, maybe a little higher, before Bolden blew up at the UA All-America game. Hopefully he proves he's as good as Bolden is.
He is absurdly fast for his size. He is breaking runs and out-pacing CBs and Ss. And he's still just a junior? He has Brian Urlacher athleticism potential.
Quite frankly, it isn't fair for a man that size to be that fast.

This also has the potential to be the best class in Michigan football history. I think 2005 was 2nd in the country.
I don't know -- the 1898 class was pretty killer.
I love this class, too, but these kinds of statements are a little ridiculous.
I'm not saying it's a done deal or anything, but based on who we have and who we could likely get, that statement's not exactly a stretch.
The 1998 class with Henson, Terrell, and Fargas was ranked #1 in the country by a number of publications if I remember correctly. I know that recruiting services were far different at the time, so caveats apply.
says he is a high-character kid and very smart academically. It also says academics played a role in his decision, which help explains his migration out of Ohio. Great get. Welcome Ben!!!
Do recruiting profiles ever say a kid is low character?
They might not say that he's low character, but they sometimes avoid saying another at all about character.
He commits after his Stanford visit and before Levenberry visits.
Hopefully Levenberry feels the pressure from Michael Hutchins renewed interest.
Pressure and Time? That and a big goddamn poster.
I think the coaches are trying to recruit 3 linebackers in each class..one for each position. They did last year and it seems to be what they are trying to do this year.
Bro, you're sample size is 2 years. If Levenberry wasn't such a stud, I'm sure the coaches would be quite content with just 2 LBs in this class.
For some reason I thought we already had him. But yay! Another 4*!
For the record, we now have 13 commits included in the Rivlas 250.Those with the next most are Ohio, Florida, Texas and Bama each with 7.
....Happy Easter to you as well !! jt
Welcome to the Wolverines!
It has been a while since a "Hello:" post, I believe - nice to have one in this post-Easter week as a late addition to Michigan's Easter basket. It's great to see that we can win the battle in Columbus' backyard with some consistency yet again.
Huge get gonna be nice having 4 stars rotating in and out,Something we havent seen in forever. Hope we get to the point where bama is they got saint-Dix the best player overall a few years ago and they have the luxury to let guys develop first.
No Denard and Roy dancing?
I remember about a year ago Sam Webb doing a recruiting article on DetNews about this stud linebacker from Ohio, Ben Gedeon. Little did I know at the time he would eventually be a verbal committment to Michigan. Awesome to see it finally happen.
Now my head can spin on Saturday!
Welcome to the Fold!
Brady Hoke continues to impress the people in ohio with what he brings to the table . . . a Straight Shooter!
Good pickup for you guys. He's an intelligent kid with a lot of athleticism. He'll be a player.
