(and I hate to agree with Mike Valenti)
but, Michigan is going to have a hard time competing for elite recruits no matter who the head coach is, and that is because they refuse to "get their hands dirty".
I am in no way saying Michigan should start breaking the rules or "get around them" like other schools (SEC) , but reality is that schools who do those things land the elite recruits.
Valenti mentioned this on the show a bunch last week. If you look at the past few NC contenders, they all run dirty programs or have a major booster than no one can compete with (Oregon)
Michigan refuses to stoop to those levels (which is a good thing) and as a result, miss out on the elite recruits.
It is alarming, though, that right now UM seems to be missing out on any recruit of note.
