I don't think they changed Les at all actually

stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly

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?

I guess that's better than knowing nothing.
Is it me, or does it seem that Ohio is being extremely LAZY with their recruiting this year, and are basically just looking at who Michigan is targeting, then going after them? It seems like every one of our top targets suddenly are OSU's targets too. Lazy bastards...do your own research.
Chuck Norris wears Brady Hoke pajamas.
Well didn't Meyer admit to basically doing that exact thing with Saban for D recruits? It's a good strategy.
I don't know if Urban came out and admitted that, but he said something along those lines. It was proven more so by him offering players shortly after they got Alabama offers.

You'd think with one coach focusing only on recruiting while the other one was coaching the team though that he might have gotten his own list going...
"Michigan Defense" is dominating everything, in every aspect of life. That's a rough definition.

He actually did say that during the signing day special. I was amazed to hear that. I kind of find it pathetic. Let one team do all the leg work then come in a offer them. I say we send out 25 offers to scrubs around Columbus that love Ohio. That should fill up there class real quick
Touchdown Manningham! MICHIGAN WINS!
Those who stay will be champions!
If you're going to quote Shane Morris's tweets, at least cite him as a source.
thats where that line came from.. I was thinking about it all night and I remembered I read it on twitter. It just felt right to say. Not sure if I really needed to site a tweet when just about every one here thought it at one point or another but I will give credit where credit is due.
Well it could be that he is copying us, or that we each go after highly rated players that most big time midwestern schools will offer.
One of the knocks on him at FL was that he strictly relied on the recruiting services. So he offered all the top guys. Without seeing them or evaluating how they fit into his systems. So while he got many top recruits many did not fit and pan out.
The EXACT same thing could be said for Hoke (and staff) targeting Dantonio's recruits since he joined UM..
If Hoke and Co. targeted all of the players MSU recruited, Michigan's class would be ranked in the middle of the B1G. Your point is irrelevant.
Also, there were like 80 offers sent out in a 2 week period immediately following signing day last year. There's no evidence that the staff was just hanging around waiting to see if any other schools offered these players.
Special Teams means special times!
If I was Michigan I would try and go after OSUs highly ranked prospects too

What position are they wanting him for? i can't imagine him being a RB in the spread
I am become Tim Hardaway Jr. Destroyer of Worlds
I think most schools are recruiting him at DL, and some at TE. It seems we are one of the few schools recruiting him at RB.
There are some summer 2011 camp one-on-one videos of Shalman at DE. He was utterly unblockable. Incredible first step, the 2012 OTs he was going against were consistently slow with their first reach step, where Shalman would either go around, or do a swim back inside to tackle the 'QB' (tackling dummy).
Shalman has stated his preference as a RB, but I think he would be a great rush end/3-4 OLB...JMHO.
I dont think hes going after who we offer, its cause were offering the best so is he. Urban is going to be the most hated coach in the b10(if he already isint). And dont think that Shalman is a lock, urban is a slick bastard who knows the recruiting game. He will tell/do anything to recruits to get them to committ....

I hope Wyatt's mom cried again, although this time for the opposite reasons.

drop his offer letter from TSIO in the paper shredder.

I hear that Michigan just offered poopsi mcgillocutti and 5 min later he received a call from Urban offering him a full ride on the spot!

I guess urbie is recruiting him as an H-back...
flamebait? ill keep my info to myself in the future...
I hear Michigan offered Poopsi McGillacutti and 5 min later he got a call and full ride from Urban Lyer.
This. OSU "offers" now mean nothing because everyone with a solid BCS offer or two will get one. It is marketing; many will find out their offer is one of those noncommitable offer things. 180 degree divergence from Tressel's style.

never understood how the schollie offers can be revoked for an academically eligible kid.
It's basically a "Hey! How's it going? We're interested. Keep us in mind."
Seems to be the way things are done these days, especially in the SEC.
It also keeps you from "offending" some kids who feel they're being disrespected if a school doesn't offer them during their junior year.
it basically means, "Hey, you're on our list. You're not at the top of the list, but we'll let you know what happens with the guys we really want and if there's room for you because the guys ahead of you are going elsewhere, we'll actually accept a commitment from you. But for now, we're just engaged to be engaged."

You know, Dude, I myself dabbled in pacifism once. Not in 'Nam of course.
Who cares what Ohio does?
Hail to the Victors!
If you can't beat em, join em...HAIL!!!
Remember Who You Are!
RB class in 2013 could be special. I think Shallman will be used like an H-Back here. Hope we get Isaac too. But Edwards could earn an offer as well.
Well, I don't mind that OSU thinks he's tremendous because I'm more interested in what Ohio thinks of him fergodsakes.
Sorry to hijack this thread, but did anyone hear if Yuri Wright is coming this weekend? /s
give the guy a little credit. In his defense, I searched the entire board and couldn't find anything about it. Is he coming or not? /s
It's the same old story. Boy finds girl, boy loses girl, girl finds boy, boy forgets girl, boy remembers girl, girls dies in a tragic blimp accident over the Orange Bowl on New Year's Day.
michigan.rivals.com says he's coming
John 14:6 - Jesus said " I am the way the truth and the life, no one comes to the father except through me."
michigan.rivals.com says he's not.
And f ohio
[Caved troll is caved. Sorry, Mobile app users.]
I hear Yuri is bringing Demar Dorsey, Bubakar Sissoko and Justin Turner with him this weekend. From what I'm hearing it's a package deal.
The epitome of a "suspicious package".
