I think we have 5 ships left to give out and with alot of kids of coming in this weekend,what happens if 7 or 8 of these kids want to commit?? I know this probably wont happen but it's nice dream!
That means we probably won the game.
Excellent observation. I LOLed so +1 for you.
Then we'll probably have to tell some of the slot receivers that they're playing DT; and, if they don't like it, then they can committ somewhere else.
we sign them and count early enrolles to last class
they changed that rule.
I know that someone said that on this board, but it was in the context of Adrian Witty. Is it possible that the rule only changed to say that his recruitment can no longer be part of the previous class since he didn't originally qualify for it?
This seems to show that nothing has changed.
Call up Olanyian and tell him to get to Ann Arbor ASAP, before the magic wears off.
I believe, so we take eight. There is always some attrition due to injuries etc and can't we use McGuffie's scholie and Clemons'?
I don't get "saving" scholorships.
Bird in hand > Two in the bush
Normal attrition will get us adequate numbers in every class.
These things have a way of working themselves out.
I think people also assume a couple guys in this class will not qualify or something similar. And as the above poster says, I would rather get them now then hope for the future and wanting a bigger class for 2011. In fact, I think it's a good good sign for our depth if only have 11 open spots for 2011.
As "cargo" eluded we take all eight. umhero's diary from a few days ago spells out the NCAA 2009-2010 rules in regards to ee's being able to go towards either class. I'm thinking RR's statement that only 5 are left is to spur some of these higher caliber guys to commit.
said that rule was changed. maybe I'm wrong or he is wrong. I know he said in the Big 10 you can only over sign by 2.
Yeah I went with what Webb said last week as well... with his sources being the coaches figured it was pretty lock tight, but umhero's diary is hard to argue against being that his source is the NCAA rule book. I myself would like to know one way or the other, but for now I'm leaning towards the rule book.
I missed his post on the rules but I'll take his word for it.
we only have 70-71 scholarship players right now. We lose around 17 taking us to around 53. we add 25-27 thats around 80 right? Am I counting too many guys leaving or am I wrong about the 70 scholarship players?
I thought I must have messed up the # of players leaving after this season. Was I right about the # of players on scholarships right now??
As far as I am concerned, too many recruits is a good problem to have.
they are all smurfs and play the same position
The big fish on defense may think, wow, I could start like in my Freshman year at Michigan. Why should I go be a bench warmer at USC, Florida or OSU for two or three years waiting my turn on a talent stacked team!!!
well they could be thinking "I'll be a bench warmer.. but we'll probably win a national championship or at least go to BCS games". I think the assertion that people will snap at the opportunity for early playing time and helping bring back a struggling powerhouse is far too rational for a hyped high school athlete to be thinking.
I sure hope that being an instant contributor weighs more heavily on their minds than possibly the more rational thought in some minds of joining a program, picking up a redshirt, and growing into the success that awaits you. Patience is a virtue and as much as I would have loved to see JT Turner play this year, I'm even more excited knowing that he has a yr under his belt going into next year with 4 more yrs of eligibility left.
