"What (Michigan coaches) told me is that they're focusing on point guards right now, but if anything opens up, they'll definitely come back on and recruit me as hard as they were," said Towns
IMO, as long as a Glenville kid has an OSU offer, UM has 0.1% chance at best. No offense to Sam Webb and this article, but I think you can safely put the Brian "I'll eat a lemon" stamp on Lattimore/Smith coming to UM.
So what you're saying is that Lattimore and Smith will commit to Michigan and Brian will find some mgoloop-hole to avoid giving us that sweet, sweet lemon face we so crave?
Yes, and that loophole will be that their offers weren't "commitable"
So you're telling me there's a chance....
At around that time, he sent a super-talented linebacker to Michigan. The kid played like a beast as a sophomore, then rarely saw the field the rest of his career. Then he didn't get drafted, despite being talented enough to eventually stay in the NFL for 5 years.
On the other hand, his son goes to OSU, at a position UM didn't want to let him play, and earned various All-American honors and went in the top-10 of the NFL draft. He also sent them an unheralded QB who no one else really pursued and that guy won the Heisman Trophy. Donte Whitner also went on to be a top-10 pick and just went to the Pro Bowl this past season.
Not a shock that he would steer his kids there instead of to A2, really.
STARTING DEFENSE BABY! A PLACE AT THE TABLE!
Do we have a chance with Lattimore?
I doubt this because even though they said they aren't Ohio locks they probably are just saying that to keep the suspense and give us hope. If we do have an actual chance they have to get on campus. But I believe they are Ohio locks
I might be the only one but I never get tired of that joke.
RR may have made it if he somehow got Casteel to come, and/or stopped digging deeper with his behavior, as he did not seem conscientious of the tradition and everything that came before him.... imagine had he brought a legacy coach with him like Mattison, and deferred on tradition to him... in this case, RR may have made it here. But both things were needed.
RR is good at creating something from nothing... Arizona is a good spot for him.
I still like seeing this.
