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?
per Rivals. Urbs literally taking PSU's entire class, and he might not be done with Williams and Reeves visiting soon.

Me. It's okay, I only accepted their offer as a farce to eat up a scholarship.

Hey, what about M football vs the ACC?
for use of Ped St. This isn't Mlive.

Not sure what Mlive is but thanks for the insightful post
Do not use "Ped St" or any other play on words that makes light of the PSU situation. Its not fun and its not funny. K? Thanks.
(For future reference, all you need to know about MLive is that you do not want to be compared to it or have it suggested that you'd be a better poster there instead of here.)
Disgruntled former moderator. I got a lot of problems with you people!
I completely agree. The whole situation is atrocious and lets not be those guys.
It's Michigan's equivalent to the RCMB. It's embarrassing.
I don't think it's quite that bad...it's bad...just not *that* bad.

I only saw the edited version.
They have room, i think. Also, this bumps osu up to #3 and now above us (#5) in the rivals team rankings.
Wow Bradley better start doing some recruiting. I'm also not really on board with the "Ped State" thing.
"I'm the guy who does his job. You must be the other guy."
Bradley better not be doing any recruiting for them, considering he's not a coach there anymore.
How many spots does tOSU have left to fill their class?
OSU currently has two more spots left. With the almost foregone conclusion that Jamaal Berry will not return and rumors heating up that Chad Hagan will either transfer or seek medical hardship, it opens up to four more spots. Williams, Reeves, Dodson, Perkins, Neal, and Marcus are the top targets as of now.

I counted 21 currently, which is what they're at with commits. But don't they lose 3 for this recruiting cycle thus making the total possible 22?
Can someone clarify?
Iknow they can only have 83 on schollie a year. They just lost 3 this weekend, and I guess one kid might be getting hardship. Urban Saban isint playing around...
Looks like this breakdown shows two spots still available with Berry off of the team and Hagan still listed as being a part of it. Hard to pin down an exact number, but I'm expecting 25.
Depending on more cuts after tryout via video review of practices. F the kids, the SEC is here. Nice example Urban!

This was supposed to be the down year for Ohio's recruiting, giving Michigan a chance to catch up...
Why despondent? Mchigan has one hell of a class and beat ohio this year. Ohio is the team playing catch up.
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.
Michigan/Hoke are recruiting players that fit our team and are of good character and reliability. Ohio/Meyer are recruiting anyone that they can poach/get to boost an assclowns ego.
Who cares, there is actually great news here. Everyone was saying Michigan was getting recruits because Ohio was down with the inference being that we wouldn't get the class we're getting if Ohio wasn't down. Well, Ohio has a #3 rated class, will complete their class and we STILL have the class that we do! I know this is partially because of the PSU situation but they're not going to be a recruiting threat for awhile so the recruits will be there for both schools. If we keep bringing in classes like we are, I say let's play ball and take our chances!
Catch up to what?
We won in November.
We won in New Orleans.
This is Michigan.
Despondent????? This is MICHIGAN FOREGODSSAKE!!!!
Keep that playoff run going! Maximum disruption to PSU.
Abort, Retry, Fail?
Penn St. getting totally blown up is bad for the conference. Ohio picking up all the scraps on route to a top 5 recruiting class is bad for humanity.
"Michigan Defense" is dominating everything, in every aspect of life. That's a rough definition.
-Craig Roh 10/29/2011
but 50% isn't bad, considering the situation 5 years ago. Ohio recruiting well is inevitable. I agree that not having a weak PSU in our division does not help us but I feel that conference prestige is meaningless in a media environment where the game is rigged in favor of the SEC and the Big 12.
PSU's famine is apparently OSUs feast.
I love you Tom Brady but your victories are aiding the bad guys.
Would you still say that if we got Reeves?
Avatar is a reference to this. Go Blue!
yes, just because they've already gotten Shutt, O'connor and probably burrows. I would be thrilled if we poached Reeves.
PSU is doing an equally bad job of keeping their commits as OSU (and others) are doing a good job of flipping them.
Spence was ticketed for PSU til this whole debacle came out.
Hoke et al said no to Schutt and I'll take our commits over O'Connor. As for Reeves, we're still in that.
Ease up kid.
We'll always have 45-10

Urbs putting together a great class for Ohio. It does worry me a bit, but Hoke has put together a great class here. Here's to a revived and extremely competitive war with Ohio.
Michigan, Ohio State and Notre Dame are all loading up with high level recruits. Each are going to be national powers in a couple years. Sucks to be Michigan State having to play all three. Dantonio should just enjoy his current success while it lasts...which won't be much longer.
I don't know... Notre Dame may need a coach without a purple face first.
They suffer a horribly embarassing scandel, only to have neighboring PSU suffer an even worse scandel taking the attention off of Ohio and allowing Ohio to steal a bunch of PSU's prized recruits.
Ohio will come out of all of this virtually unscathed with a top 3 coach in college football and a top 3 recruiting class.
What a joke.
An underlying question to a lot of posts lately is the question of just how much OSU deserves to be punished. I realize that a lot of people would have liked for the sanctions to have been worse, but now that that's over, exactly what do people want? For the NCAA to say "You can't recruit anyone with four or more stars" or "You can't hire a coach who has won a national championship"? That doesn't happen.
It's tough to make predictions, especially about the future. -- Yogi Berra
It really is just frustrating, and typical. As much as I supported him, we suffered through three awful seasons under RR. Preceding RR, Carr couldn't beat Tressel, and the list goes on and on. I get so tired of OSU, and I just wish something (ANYTHING) would set them back like we were set back. The NCAA sanctions help, but I have a bad feeling about Meyer taking over.
I'm sure Meyer will succeed, but Michigan doesn't need OSU to be down to be good. OSU was really good under Cooper when they weren't playing Michigan. Michigan also doesn't need to pull in every top Ohio recruit. They only have to get some of them.
That's true, but things the NCAA can do like post-season bans and scholarship reductions do have a impact on a school's ability to recruit top talent. Not having a chance to play in a bowl for your first two years, or a program that may not be as competitive are certainly deterrents for top recruits that are fielding numerous competitive offers.
ohio Aside, any punishment, especially for lack of institutional control and beyond should be such that recruits will be VERY hesitant to go to that school for at least 5 years. That would bring the program back down to an even level. The infractions are that because the accused Unviersities had an added allure to players or gained an advantage somehow on the playing field. There needs to be a distinct and relevant pain inflicted to make the university much less desireable to attend in the near future. That is what I want.
Choose Michigan because it is MICHIGAN!
Boo Hoo, we have a top 5 class and Hoke was up for every possible Coach of the Year award. I think we'll be alright. Ohio can't go to the postseason for 2 more years and Meyer is only expected to last 6 years at the most before he flakes out for whatever reasons.
Special Teams means special times!
I never expected the NCAA to make OSU into anything even remotely resembling a smoldering hole in the ground like they deserve, but not even skipping a beat? that's pretty sad in light of the shenanigans there the last 10 years.
Heads up kids, more cuts are coming. Welcome to the SEC (See Education Cut) recruit.
Wheres all the people who were glad Urbie is their coach? SMH, I hope you're happy! Dude passes us in recruiting in less than 2 months! Hoke, pick it up!
