Just some questions and letting out some frustration…
Please forgive me if this has already been covered, as I am still new to the site. Every year it seems that we (along with every program out there) give out dozens of scholarships to recruits and only have around 20 actually available. What happens if more kids accept then we can actually take?
Is it first come first serve on verbal commits or do we get to choose who we accept if there is more? If we get to choose, why not just give everyone a scholarship and then choose who we want. This may seem like a very dumb question but I have always been wondering about what would happen if more kids decided to take our offer.
I would like to address my frustrations with the current recruiting class. It seems that all I read is lack of depth here and lack of depth there. I think this is very untrue besides the defensive back 7. We have plenty of depth just some very inexperienced players (I don’t think inexperienced is the same as not having quality players). I think this is just like every other program in the nation.
Now I feel that the current recruiting class is not covering our needs. While I do like each recruit and think they are very talented I feel that we are overloading with offensive players. I would much rather see this whole class be switched to the defense side of the ball (with the exception of a few guys and Gardner who is an absolute freak). I understand Rich Rod is an offensive juggernaut, but defenses win championships. Lets face it we are Michigan and it is about time we add another National Championship to our already amazing history. I feel that half of our offensive players will never be a starter and our defense will be playing walk-ons. I feel we need to start locking down big name defensive players and this will eventually get us to the promise land.
Ok I have rambled enough and feel much better. I will be happy with our class this year if we only take a few offensive players next year and load up with the great talent the 2011 defensive class has.
with all that said Go Blue and I will support this team until the day I die
