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?
@AllenTrieu: Michigan has re-offered David Dawson and he will visit December 14.
Hail To The Victors!
Weird? But good, I guess.
I think he was our most talented OL commit
Don't tell that to Magnus.
Balls they are a busted.
Bears Beets Battlestar Galactica
That's a phrase that makes me squeamish.

Or Fox. Could probably make an argument for Bosch too
Twitter // Recruiting Work// Email
it don't matter who is the best..together they will be a force
it gives me a warm feeling that there are 3 other players who can be argued over about this
I've been arguing this before it was cool.
I take it that now that Gardner is going to be in control we all have to start acting like hipsters?
Bo Schembechler BA, Bear Bryant Law.
dang,how did i forget Fox? i agree,i think Fox will be the best one out of this class.
Exhibit 876 regarding why you don't trash talk a kid who chooses another school.
Michigan: 903–315–36 (Best in NCAA)
vs Ohio State: 58-44-6
vs Notre Dame: 23-16-1
vs MSU: 68-32-5
vs B1G: 522-197-24
vs SEC: 20-8-1
vs PAC 12: 48-24-1
vs Big 12: 10-5-1<
Interesting. I wonder if this signals a shift in policy, or if Dawson didn't go behind the coaches' backs like we all assumed.
Either way, I'm sure there's a lot to this story that we don't know. I for one was always in his corner and would love to see him recommit.
"The straightest line from A to B is straight: From A to B"
"When you have Denard Robinson, you can have everything"
I, for one, would like to offer you a cookie for always being in his corner.
I was in his corner too, where's my cookie?
“When your team is winning, be ready to be tough, because winning can make you soft. On the other hand, when your team is losing, stick by them. Keep believing” - Bo Schembechler
StraightDave is currently in possession of it, and will give you it if Dawson commits to Maryland
You're gonna have to fight Peggy for half of the only cookie I had to give tonight. Sorry about that.
Hope that was a sugar free cookie, what with your diabeetus and all.
ONE PER DAY. GOD.
Only 876? Maybe just on this blog... this year.
... Exhibit 1: Because he's a kid and trashing kids on the internet about their life decisions is moronic.
Exhibit 2:Because he's a kid and trashing kids on the internet about their life decisions is moronic.
Exhibit 3:Because he's a kid and trashing kids on the internet about their life decisions is moronic.
Exhibit 875: Because he's a kid and trashing kids on the internet about their life decisions is moronic.
Do Something. If it works, do more of it. If it doesn't, do something else.
Add to that the very recent loss of his father, and it moves a notch past moronic.
He also repeated the "ship has sailed" comment almost verbatim - that raised a flag, to my way of thinking.
I'm still betting someone with suspect intentions had his ear. I would like to think that he spoke to the staff (didn't someone post a tweet from the Recruiting Office, Warren Extension suggesting that?) and the entire scenario was examined, not just the picture envisioned by the bloggery. If Hoke and Co. are interested in doing the best for the athletes, young Mr. Dawson needs to be Blue.
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift
The sad part is that twitter idiots talked shit to him when he didn't even pick another school, he was just looking!!!!
Come home David. The real fans still want you as part of the family.
I wish there was some way to get rid of the 1% of Michigan fans that are complete idiots. Unfortunately, they are a vocal 1% and many have Twitter accounts.
The great (or terrible) equalizer is that every fan base has that 1%, at least among the fan bases that care.
I love Twitter, but I swear the dumbest of people use it sometimes.
"So put 2 on, put 10 on, WHAT DO YOU CARE IT'S NOT LIKE YOU'RE PAYIN' FOR 'EM!!!!?"
-Doug Heffernan, in regards to Arthur and his stamp needs
Being a bit generous with the “sometimes” aren’t you?
At least the dumb ones under 17 will shift their allegiance once they end up going to MSU. We're stuck with the older ones sadly.
I had SO much fun, re-reading this not-so-old thread...
he does it a second time.
"I hate losing more than I like winning." - Zack
I'm glad. Hopefully no bridges were permanently burned.
This saga is turning very strange.Where all is he taking visits to?
"Are you an official here?Because you've officially given me a boner."
I kind of wondered if this was coming, just based on things he had been saying on twitter. I think he will end up blue.
Strive to win. If you lose....win.
Florida Wolverines have dreadlocks...
Very weird. Interesting turnaround.
Chaos is found in greatest abundance wherever order is being sought. It always defeats order because it is better organized.
I'm surprised, but I think it's the right move. He's been through a lot more than has even been known publicly and I think he deserves a second chance to be a part of the class if he wants to, which I believe he does.
Recruit Files: Robert Foster
I wonder if there has been any reconciliation or remorse on DD's part? It would signal that there was a lesson learned and the coaches feel comfortable again taking his word.
Sounds like he and Hoke had a great talk. He still gets along with the rest of the class, so hopefully he'll feel like he's come home....again.
The Team, The Team, The Team
Even with what's known publicly, the kid lost his dad during what should have been one of the happiest, most exciting times of his life, and he probably lost one of his best advisers who could have steered him clear of the mess he ended up in.
Although it's hard to know from afar, this seems like a good decision, and I'm sure that other recruits will understand why an exception might be made.
Well said Turd. Losing a loved one especially a father is one of the toughest things a kid can experience.
never mind a kid, it's hard no matter how old you are. I lost my Father almost 3 years ago and I was 35. I went off the rails in a big way and even now, three years later at 38 years old I still have trouble even telling stories about him.
If I was David's age and lost my father I would have been an absolute mess. Hell, I didn't lose anyone when I was his age and I was an absolute mess. People need to give these guys a break. Whether they want to go to UM or not, people need to stop taking this recruiting stuff so personally. I mean, it's always nice when one picks us but is it really that horrible if one decides to go elsewhere? These aren't your girlfriends/boyfriends, they're allowed to look around and pick someone else.
I think it would be awesome if he chose UM but I am not going to harbour any ill will if he decides somewhere else offers him a better future.
is he an early enrollee? figured if this were to happen it would be a lot closer to signing day
I'd love to have him in this class, seems like a great kid. Hope we can get him.

Will be interesting with two other OL offers coming in town for a visit.. We take them all??
Its called a royale with cheese
Nope, Tremendous just answered me on Twitter. Coaches only want 5 OLs, Dawson would be the 5th.
They've told all their commitments they're taking five OL in this cycle. That's been the story and it's something they wouldn't go back on with the kids who are currently committed.
I guess i'll take it as long as this kid does not pull anything if he does decide Michigan is his future home. I really did like him as a recruit and as an athlete so I am pleased with this "re-offer"
Lloyd Brady is my homeboy...for real he is!
Cameron Hunt and Kenny Lacy are all like, "well, fuck."
Better show up real early on Dec. 14, boys.
Except for the other thing. That hurts the most. But the lack of respect hurts the second most.
I want him back, absolutely. I just hope the recruiting "policy" isn't undermined in the process.
