Here's what Michigan sent to Keisean Lucier-South as a recruiting pitch. Pretty cool.
But if there weren't subs involved, how could it be 'crazy'?
P.S. Might want to check your grammar.
P.S.S. And does this type of recruiting really work? I wish someone would ask these young adults. Between kids writing letters, 'last puzzle piece', etc. does it really affect them?
Best "right hand arm man" this grand nation has to offer.
No, she is a silly rabbit.
I believe the term is "phat rabbit."
It's "P.P.S", not "P.S.S."
Not to mention P.M.S. Or P.O.S. Just for future reference.
P.C. of you. Are you accessing on your P.D.A.?
I dont think it's the recruiting material as much as it is the attention that they feel the staff is paying to them and maybe planting the idea that they plan on him going pro?
Yeah, a big part of it is to make the recruits feel like they're a top priority. If a staff becomes less consistent about contacting the player, he'll assume they aren't interested. A goofy picture like this takes more work than sending out a form letter, so it should be appreciated.
Coolest way to recruit? Actually win some games.
Maybe I've overly cynical today but that seems really lame to me. Not much better than stuff I've seen from other schools.
Looks like he's going to get drafted by the Houston Oilers.
Lol wut. These things are sooo cheesy
which 18 kids?
I think it's more about the attention/receiving the letter than the idea. the letter is pretty meh, but it would be cool to get stuff from UMFB
This is actually pretty badass, minus the 'Dreamchasers' thing.
I find it interesting that they sort of took an almost corporate approach by putting "core values" on each of these - "Committment", "Accountability", "Respect" and "Trust", in this case. I think they've been discussed in articles as being just that, but it is interesting to see them on the recruiting material as well. You would have to think that it is a nice way to hit home, especially if the kid you are recruiting appreciates those things as well.
Now that one actually looks cool and appealing to me. Certainly better than the map one
How is this different than any of the other pieces of mail schools send students for academic recruitment?
It's about football?
Yuck. I mean if we're actually going to do these things let's at least TRY and be creative and clever and not just something forgettable so we can say we tried.
What the fine print doesn't tell you, is that you actually have to WALK from California to Michigan.
Why is he holding up an Oilers jersey at the draft? Is Brady Hoke a Time Lord?
Hoke as a Time Lord sign me up! Lazy part of me says they used a Houston Oiler jersey because that's the stock photo they had. The inner-lawyer of me says it might have to do something with not being able to use a current team jersey due to infringement/copyright/etc
permission from Roger Goodell to use his picture in their pitch piece.
I prefer that we do it the Ole Miss' way. Cash money.
Michigan too . . .
The weather and hostesses
Are you volunteering to be a "bag man"?
I don't love it. Hope it works, though.
I agree that it seems really cheesy. Like mac n cheese noodle at the Stadium, cheesy.
If he was there would have even a collection to find his route as well.
Lucier -South seems really thrilled to be getting drafted...
Probably because he went in the 6th round...this is Michigan fergodsakes.
Oooooo, killin' em!
I think I found out why our recruiting is in the shitter
Then you realized that Florida is on the east coast?
I guess they've just dropped the pretense.
At least they didn't spell it "you're"
They have a picture of Hoke with a graduating player on the picture...
... from a visual design perspective it is 100% absolutely terrible quality. I could create that graffic in powerpoint. Compared to the materials I've seen published out of other schools (like OSU), it looks bush league. You would think with the budget we have in the AD you could get some high quality visual designs for these things. I'm all for selling the sizzle, but fuck me, that is one ugly visual.
Why can't we just use attractive coeds and crazy parties like everybody else?
But honestly, not a bad idea. Personally I can't take this photoshop stuff seriously, but I'm also not a 17-year-old kid who is an elite football recruit.
Times have changed. Time to be proactive and current. Let's not cling to the past and always wonder what Bo would have done. What attracted kids in 1975 is different than 2014.
Nice use of current events. Wouldn't want to do this in August...
When the NCAA decided to deregulate everything.
Texas and Alabama are going to be out of control with this kind of stuff.
if we had actually put any appreciable amount of Defensive Ends into the draft in recent memory.
Super cheesy but why is Hoke in the picture? Chances are he won't be at Michigan by the time South graduates (IF he choses Michigan). With Hoke performance of late, he'll be long gone before the kid walks the stage.
You find me the typewritter with that crazy E key and i'll find the sum bitch that wrote this crap.
SHOW THEM THE MONEY
They shall someday see as stars.
