I'm setting the over/under on weekend commitments at 1.
Are you going to bet that at least 2 kids will commit to Michigan?
Or are you expecting zero?
Or are you going to be lame and push?
Me...I'm going to be lame. Push!
optimism train and take the over.
Hillary Duff engaged to U of M alum Mike Comrie. Im hopping on this optimism train since we are already at 1....kind of
you might consider adding halves to your line to prevent pushes
i will take the over, upvote me if i win, down if i lose.
EDIT: Lack of size joke fail.
I'm feeling three for some reason.
bonus (multiplier) for the fact that I sat here staring at your avatar for the better part of 5 minutes.
my damn shoulder hurts like hell which is making me grumpy,and grumpy for me means a pessimistic attitude. However, I just can't see 35 kids coming to the BIG HOUSE and not getting at least 2 commits. So over, definitely over !!
I'm going with the under. I would have set the line at 1/2 as I don't think Zettel or Beyer are ready to commit yet though I believe both eventually will. With the quality of kid that is going to be there I suspect some of them are going to want to take a couple of paid visits.
Then again, a verbal from someone unexpected may open the flood gates and we could get two or three. I would be really pleased if a certain sophomore LB gave us a verbal.
I think we will get 1 or 2. But who?
I think Zettel might, and I think we have a chance at Hayes. I have a feeling he will be very impressed even though he grew up a spartan fan.
If there's any justice in this world, we'll get Hayes this weekend.
Okay, sorry. But seriously, is he even visiting this weekend? He wasn't on Rivals list of visitors.
Tomvh put on twitter last night that he was.
I'm hoping that Brennen Beyer and Anthony Zettel join the fray this weekend.
Justice Hayes would be a nice get, too, but I don't see him dropping this soon, especially being a lifelong Spartan fan.
I wonder if the coaches are waiting to see what's up with Dee Hart before they go really hard after Hayes... Oh to be a fly on the wall of the recruiting war room
I'll be lame. I think we get zero or one.

what about Clutch's song 10001110101. Robot lords of Tokyo, smile taste kittens, did you not know that the royal hunting grounds are always forbidden.
oh, and I pick the over, I'm going with 3.5 commitments.
God i love that show. I randomly ran into Eugene, the landlord, last year and asked if the show was coming back? At the time, even he didn't know unfortunately.
HBO wanted them back, but Brett and Jemaine do not think that they have enough good material to make another season.

I think we get 5. 3 silent, 2 vocal and 1 murmur. Then the question becomes who gets Peaced and Barnsed which is never noble.
And hopefully for those that do commit, they continue to keep up on their school work and take their tests seriously so they don't get Draked.
I read this topic and immediately thought 1, so I will go push
I'm going to be at the game tonight, so I will start slipping Chilli's coupons to recruits. No way they can turn down a buy one get one free entree coupon.
and he is seriously P*SSED that you stumbled onto Texas's fullproof recruiting strategy to lock-up a class early.
What is "fullproof"? Does it have anything to do with bulimia?
"Psssh! I promise Lindsay Lohan won't be too chubby for the photo shoot. She's fullproof."
My gut reaction was - OVER!!! But I wonder if the coaches are going to be more conservative with offers this year knowing that they can only sign ~15 players or so. Then again, it would be nice to lock down a couple of guys that you really like early.
I think they'll sign two, one of which will have the internets a buzz with why they wasted a scholarship on someone like that so early......
They're not being that conservative with offers. They've already mailed out over 60 of them.
Magnus, is the banner on your site supposed to say Michigan Foosball?
I hope once RR gets our program back to dominance our recruiting goes as boring as UT. Lock up 12+ quality players early, then concentrate on the elite players going forward. One can dream...
is the function of Texas HS football size talent and Michigan HS football will never have that. Does Michigan regularly produce 12 high D1 caliber players yearly? Even if it did, what would be the odds that they all wanted to play at Michigan?
I can see it happening between Michigan and Ohio. If Michigan won 10 games last year, I would expect several commits today.
I agree with your statement. Texas has so many built-in advantages, probably more than any other school in the country. I don't think UM will ever enjoy the same results from their junior day like Texas. I was just saying it would be cool if they did.
I wonder how much weather plays into campus visits? I distinctly remember my visit to Mich on a day with weather very similar to this (sunny and brisk), and it just made the campus seem that much more surreal. On the other hand when I visited Duke, it was rainy an miserable. I know this this is sort of silly, but I can't help but believe that subconsciously it played a factor in the overall feeling of a college visit.
For that reason alone I say over!
I don't think we'll hear about any, although there could be 1-2 silent guys. We only have around 13 more spots.
The guys at Rivals are thinking there will be 15-17 spots in total.
Somebody has to be the grumpy pants here.
The momentum from NSD carries over, although I think it will only be 2
I gotta go with the push as well. If anything, I would lean to the under, though.
The opinion of the guys over at Rivals is that it's still too early in the process for many commitments. And the two most likely candidates to commit, Zettel and Beyer, are both likely to wait a little longer. I'm sure that both will commit, but as far as this weekend is concerned, it might not happen. Besides, I'd rather it be under right now anyway. It's highly unlikely that we'll get any major prospects (i.e. Depriest, Arnett, Thomas, etc.) to commit this early in the process and I'd like to fill up our class with top level talent. I'm well aware that Thomas isn't very likely and I know the story with Arnett liking the pro-style offense and his wait and see approach. I'm just using those prospects as examples. Zettel and Beyer will both be nice gets, but again, that's really the only top level talent I could see committing this weekend and even they are likely to wait a little while longer.
With the Big House looking complete, a gorgeous sunny day in A2, a packed house at Crisler and a victory against Penn State... I think we'll get two emotional commits.
Since I have absolutely no idea, I'm going for 3 in honor of the 16 threes the hoops team is going to drop on PSU's head tonight.
It's either 3 or 16, and 16 seems a little optimistic. Just sayin.
I'll go with the over and say we get 2
The real question is how much shame should we all feel that are topics were so bad we actually forced Magnus to make his own post. He's usually a counterpuncher the Mgoblogs Jimmy Connors.
I'm not sure how even posted does he have enough points??
Scout is reporting that something like 31 prospects made it up, so I like our odds of getting at least one. Either way, here's to a good day of basketball and good times had by all.
