Football Display Case
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?
Hemholdt just ReTweeted a link saying that Auburn is still in it for Kozan, Diamond, and Diggs. I could give a shit less about Diggs anymore, but I would hope that we can snare Kozan and Diamond
"Dream Big, Work Hard"
I'd be happy with one or the other.
Josh Helmholdt @JoshHelmholdt
RT @JHokanson: We have an update on Alex Kozan, Jordan Diamond, and Stefon Diggs on our board. Auburn still in play for all three.
There it is
I'm going with CoPreps. The local guy.
Copreps = Colorado preps?
Watch Auburn get all three.........................
taking all three further ignoring the NCAA's suggestion about reducing their scholarships.
Hookers and cash my friend. Hookers and cash.
Tough to compete with the SEC in college football recruiting.
If you've been to Auburn you would know its not the sort of economy that would support a large number of hookers. Its got a real small town feel, which I guess can be appealing to some. Its in the middle of nowhere, and you have to drive by a lot of cows to get there. My girlfriend's undergrad is from Auburn, and she loves it the same way I love a Wordsworth poem--its pastoral and quaint and full of itself all at the same time. It in no way compares to Ann Arbor culturally.
Hence the nickname Aubarn
"Ohio is like a giant turd that Michigan just can't pinch off"
Call them hookers or call them " hostesses who will do ANYTHING for the program," but Auburn still uses just as much "southern hospitality" as the rest of the SEC does, with maybe the exception of Bama's world class "hostess" squad.
You need that to rebuild ya daddy's church.
that Kozan takes a poll of the hostesses and finds that too many are majoring in Liberal Arts.
But if I can think of something else to say, I guess it won't be...
They use hookers and cash? I guess Craig James was just trying to level the playing field...
for SEC teams
"Deserve to Win!"
So who are we going with, the young gun from the South, or the aged preps sportswriter from Colorado?
No knock on lefty...but I would be weary on how that Auburn O rolls without Malzahn. they also lost Dyer when Malzahn left.
I guess I just dont get the appeal of Auburn...I can understand Bama but not Auburn.
"I'm not a vegetarian b/c I love animals. I'm a vegetarian b/c I hate plants"
Noone knows what they're talking about. They're all just throwing shit at the wall to see what sticks.
Whatcha gonna do, little brother?
Does Noone have a Twitter account? If he knows what all these guys are talking about I'd like to hear from him.
I don't understand the appeal of a lot of schools that kids choose over Michigan
be a little biased?
Inspiring haters to hate since 1817.
Of course, but come on, Rutgers?
Garnett, wanting to be a Doctor and being from the West Coast, going to Stanford makes sense to me.
Kozan, being from Colorado, leaning towards Iowa, makes no sense to me.
Rutgers without Schiano, makes no sense to me.
But they are 17-18 year old kids
iowa is a border state that cranks out O linemen.
Border state? If you mean it borders Colorado, it does not, in fact.
I agree... Why would you seriously not want to come to Michigan.... I mean Iowa really wtf are they selling this kid on??
They're probably selling this kid on the fact that Iowa has kinda kicked around Michigan in recent years. Sometimes recent history shows a kid a lot more about a program than our national titles 100 years ago.
I said - not good enough.
Who didn't kick us around during the RR era??? I mean that's a pretty weak sales pitch especially since we won a BCS game this year
We beat them by 6 in 2001. They beat us in 2002 and 2003. In 2004 we beat them but they finished 10-2 and #8 in the country. In 2005 we needed OT to beat them. We didn't play in 2007 and 2008. They've beat us 3 years in a row.
They won a BCS bowl in 2009 and went to another in 2002. They've had four top-10 finishes in the last 10 seasons (same as us).
Iowa's sales pitch is a lot stronger than you are pretending it is.
It is spelled HOKEAMANIA. Our coach is an ass-kicking American citizen, not one of the Beatles, for Christ's sake!
We are Michigan... Iowa doesnt even compare
That's all well and good, but no matter where Kozan goes, let's not pretend Iowa takes kids over Michigan very often at all. The top player from Iowa picked Michigan this year, remember.
Does he have a lot invested in the head to head match up ? I don't understand this point at all
this year. [Takes off Hokie-colored glasses and returns to reason].
Your opinion has no value.
Iowa puts PLENTY of offensive lineman into the NFL...they definitely have more in recent memory.
Let's not be ignorant and act like this is a 5* WR choosing Houston with no Case Keenum or Kevin Sumlin over us.
“True loyalty is that quality of service that grows under adversity and expands in defeat. Any street urchin can shout applause in victory, but it takes character to stand fast in defeat. One is noise — the other, loyalty.”
Compared to Iowa's never-in-a-million years ago? You can talk record all you want, but he can PLAY here at center. Maybe even a 3 year starter the way our depth is at center.
I visited Iowa City once.
Nope, that's it. End of thought. There is not much else to say.
Have you seen Iowa's OL Draft history? 13 drafted over the past 10 years vs. 4 out of Mich.
I don't know whose fault it is (Andy Moeller?), but aside from Jake Long and David Baas, there was a long pre-RichRod O-line dry spell here. Anyone who speaks of "getting back to UMich offensive lines" should be prepared to head to 2000.
Speaking of RichRod, he had one year with (ultimately) no recruits in that area. Aside from Lewan (looking good at this point) and Schofield (maybe), I don't see any future pros from his 3 1/2 classes.
"500 channels and nothing but cats."
Don't forget that Iowa has been able to place their OL in the NFL quite well under Ferentz. Definite sales pitch.
That's why its called recruiting, isnt it? It's not hard to see why so many recruits go so many different places with all the dynamics that go into trying to convince a 17 year old kid (who has never made a grown-up decision in his life) to pick your school over another school.
That we are even in this conversation is good news. When we all ran to our computers this morning, we all assumed he was Iowa bound. We have a chance, and we're playing with house money.
These two teams are headed in opposite directions. Let's be real here Kozan. Do you want trophies or do you want ER bills?
"Michigan Defense" is dominating everything, in every aspect of life. That's a rough definition.
-Craig Roh 10/29/2011
It would be really nice, but like every other prospect recently that we thought we had a shot at, this one seems more far-fetched.
Ever notice how everytime ND upgrades their stadium, it still looks like the Big House? The 2015 artist rendering is no different...Go Blue
I don't think it's far-fetched. If Colorado guys are saying he's down to us and Iowa, I have to like our chances. He obviously has major reservations about the Hawkeyes, and kids typically don't recommit to schools
