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?
Grammar five -o
When you are corrected for your grammar? Its a damn conversation room on a damn blog page forgodsake!! Get a life.
"It's (its per your reply) ... on a damn blog page. "
This is not RCMB; this is Michigan, "Fergodsakes."
Is that all you have?
There's a reason you were taught proper grammar in elementary school: to communicate properly. I don't fuck up simple math problems on the regular just because I can.
Twitter - Recruiting Update: May 20
Well put, kind sir.
Disgruntled former moderator. I got a lot of problems with you people!
Get used to the idea that shorthand, internet slang (or sloppy grammar, spelling, syntax, etc) is neither necessary nor warmly embraced on this board. Gripe if you will, but it helps clean up some of the cyber-detritus that otherwise litters the Internet.
This is a fairly erudite cohort here on this board, and that (along with rampant UM homerism) is one reason I read here so much. I am not a UM student or graduate, just a lifelong fan since the Wangler/AC/Bo days. I do, however, possess BS and Master's degrees; hence, I value reading posts that don't make my head hurt.

Stick to what (s)he posted; this isn't the place for namecalling.
Didn't see you come in Capt. Sav-a- hoe. My apologies.
Apologies in advance, but 66 comments and not a single "Neon" Reon post. Had to be done. Welcome aboard.
"What" ain't no country I ever heard of. They speak English in What?
Blue family. Work hard and enjoy AA.

I like the fact that he's apologetic for leaving Illinois.That to me tells me a lot about the kid.Welcome aboard.
"Are you an official here?Because you've officially given me a boner."
Nebraska, Illinois...your commits are belong to us.
"It's the only place to get the inside story on Wolverine football, so blee bluhh tahh!" - Bo

As you can imagine, our friends in Champaign-Urbana are none too happy tonight.....
Some quotes taken from their boards;
"A lot of our recruits would probably switch if Michigan offered them a ride..."
"THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU ARE A LOSING TEAM UP AGAINST A PERENNIAL POWER HOUSE."
"And i am damn sick and tired of seeing this crap. we have to work our butt off to get a good player to come here. All Michigan has to do is offer a player and they commit. It is really sad and pretty unfair when you think about it."
"Yea I'd pick Michigan over Illinois any day of the week if I was a hs kid."
"Him picking Michigan had NOTHING to do with the partying. They're michigan, were Illinois. It's not a tough decision for a recruit really...we won't be winning any of those battles anytime soon."
"Like it or not, Michigan has earned the right to be able to offer and get whoever they want, they have won so many games, that's the way it is. It isn't unfair, Michign has worked hard to be where they are, they have played great football for a century and it shows."
"I love Illinois, it was the right school for me when I needed my college education, but if I was a football player and I had the choice between Illinois and Michigan, the choice is simple after just going to a 1 game at each place."
I've always had respect for Illinois and a little rivalry after they took us down a couple times.
I hate to say it, but the analogy to be made here to the recruiting battles between Michigan and Ohio is both sad and apropo. Michigan's lost out on so many recruits to Ohio over the last several years, and my general feeling each time it happens is: "Can anyone really be surprised?" I mean, many of these kids are going to the "perennial powerhouse," and that's been Ohio, not Michigan.
Here's to hoping the tide turns...
Without looking it up, there may be 10 kids who Michigan has landed that had OSU offers in the last two classes. The people who bitch abut back to back top 5 recruiting classes is unreal.
Edit: I actually counted. 18 kids with an OSU offer. Really struggling.
Hmm, Henry Poggi, Mike McCray, Dymonte Thomas, Kile Kalis, Tom Stroebel, James Ross, Terry Richardson, Shane Morris, Chris Wormley, Ben Gedeon, Michael Ferns, David Dawson, DeVeon Smith, Logan Tuley-Tillman, Chris Fox, Devin Gardner, Ondre Pipkins and hopefully Derrick Green if I'm not mistaken all held/hold Ohio offers...
"I can pick leaves of tree in the backyard."
Please don't pretend to be a Michigan fan.
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.
Are you an angry drunk? I had a good friend that was an angry drunk. I could never go drinking with him because he always got us in trouble. Don't be that guy.
You've made a good choice, my friend. Welcome to the Michigan family!
Best wishes to you, and welcome to the Blue. See you at The Big House.
And I don't know what's not to like about this kid. He's big, fast, and looks like he's got pretty good feet and hips. He may not be a finished product yet, but how many freshmen are?
We're blessed to have him. GO BLUE!
Thank you, Coach Hoke, for bringing Michigan back.
Losing damon webb is tough so hopefully parrker westphal will jump aboard to clear our salted wounds
Westphal isn't really a fair trade for Webb, but I guess he'd start to make up for the loss...
do you mean Webb is a better prospect than westphal? just curious. . .
Yeah, Webb is widely considered to be the better prospect.
Congrads Reon! Big day in your life, enjoy it!
Another nice pickup by Hoke and company...I'm picking Reon to be the "dark horse" of this class.
Denard Robinson......They're not going to catch him!
Magnus you hear anything from Mcdowell..he seems high on State with all his visits
McDowell is supposedly a ways off from making a decision. He seems strongly interested in Notre Dame, Michigan State, and Michigan. He visited Michigan a couple times during the season, and there hasn't been much of an opportunity to visit Ann Arbor here in January, so I wouldn't be too concerned. There's still a long way to go.
thanks for the info..taking hand and mcdowell would be tits..i have high hopes for 14
What do you guys think about Dawson's feelings towards Ohio?
“Until I die, I’m gonna be a Buckeye fan even though I’m going (to Michigan),” Dawson told The Dayton Daily News. “When we play (OSU) I’m gonna still bring my ‘A’ game. But, I love Ohio State.”
haha, my bad.
