would do anything like a TV ban because that's their own bottom line they're playing with.
How will Tressel Resignation affect Michigan Recruiting
because of revenue sharing and the BTN
Yeah, I doubt a TV ban will happen. That not only hurts the program, but the program's opponents. It's bad for the whole league and for college football itself.
I'd rather see them lose scholarships and vacate games than be banned from anything, even bowls.
anything like we did the past 3 years, I'd love to be able to actually see it. It's almost like Notre Dame. I can't look away.
The OSU vs. U-M game is one of the most viewed CFB games of the year.
I just put this in another thread, but Rivals has a pretty good rundown of how it might affect Michigan:
Not trying to thread-jack or anything, but I can't start my own thread and thought some might enjoy this- a great article on how this kind of stuff affects the fans of college football. It mentions Michigan and the Fab 5 stuff.
The Big 10 has stricter rules...they could not pull a 'USC' and take 30 recruits.
I personally think our window is not that wide here. We need to hit fast and hard at those interested. After a few months, everything will seem hunky dory down in TSIO, and commits will still come.
I am sure Hoke and Co. are going to go after these guys quickly.
the window is the size of texas..... never underestimate the power of the media and of repetition.... this OSU stuff not only will get worse, but will go on in the 24/7 media through august... it is only starting, my friend.... michigan in short order, will take its rightful place as the top team in the midwest, as it was, prior to the cheater tressel.
Irregardless (not a word, but so what?), Michigan has a great class going and are in pretty good shape with all the kids listed before Tressel resigned. I think it effects OSU somewhat this year in that they will not have a top ten class, but I imagine they will still be top five in the B1G.
Let's face it, Hoke and his staff have proven they can recruit very well. Kids are lining up to come to UM and believe in the program. However, the biggest boon for UM recruiting will be beating key rivals this fall and establishing the program as a top tier BCS threat again. OSUs problems help tremendously, but winning is still the biggest determinant of recruiting success.
