so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.

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?
this is probably just a continuation meltdown after Garnett, Kozan, Reeves and now this. I'm not ready to meltdown just yet, but Diamond committing to Ar-KANSAS over UM might send me over the edge.
"So you're telling me there's a chance. Yeah!" -- Lloyd
TBH I fully expect Diamond to go to Arkansas.
It seems like we've been the "favorite" for him since RR was first recruiting him. If he loves us that much, why hasn't he committed already? He has a buddy here, has visited 100 times. If all that hasn't convinced him to commit already, I don't see what's going to change that at this point and get him to commit to us.
That's been my feeling on Diamond all along. If he goes Blue, I'll be quite surprised.
Before all these guys started to choose other schools and were still in consideration for Michigan, I had the worst feeling about Diamond. He has been way too all over the place.
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.
with that. Garnett and Diamond choosing somewhere else doesn't hurt quite as much as loosing the committment from Stacey. IMHO
Still a good class though!
If we had a weak class of 10 commits and freaked out for the last 10 months and whined and moaned about how Hoke cannot recruit then picked up the other 13 commits that we have in the last 2 weeks? At the end of the day it's the same class whether they commit early or late.
People that are saying "This is the worst close to a class ever! I'm going to cry and watch 'shes all that' all night", don't seem to realize that the class is the class regardless of when kids sign on. If we had 28 commits 5 months ago it would be a shitty close to the class, but we'd still have a full class and a great one. Who cares about "closing the class"?
"A flute with no holes is not a flute. A donut with no hole is a danish"
I could not agree more. Our fanbase are coming off as whiners. If we got Pipkins and Kalis this weekend instead of months ago these same fans would be cheering Hoke and co. I know this is a what have you done for me lately society but wow the lack of faith is astonishing. We are Michigan! We still have a top ten class! Go Blue!
This is pretty bad, but honestly how many garnett/reeves/grant/diamond predictions did we see on this board a week or so ago? If you're apoplectic, you probably had unrealistic expectations in the first place.
Galileo was also chastised.
Stop being so reasonable. It's much more satisfying to be in the black depths.
This is a disappointing run of recruiting luck we've had. Time to sacrifice a goat behind Fort Schembechler.
With only 16 commits and ZERO 5 stars!!!.......oh wait, that's MSU
Janeane Garofalo (Film Actors Guild): "As actors it is our responsibility to read the newspaper, and then say what we read on television like it's our opinion"
I believe that those are the only four on the roster next year...I thought I read that.
Those who stay will be champions!
They have one So. and one Fr. on the roster this year, both 4 stars. (I decided to change my comment)
THIS DOESNT LOOK GOOD AT ALL FOR MICHIGAN...WHAT IS BRADY HOKE DOING? SMH
worth talking to?
The curse of Stacey is upon us. Have we had any good new since he decommitted? Back to work.
how can it possibly get any worse? take a look around helen....we are standing at the threshhold of hell!
They do the talkin...I do the walkin.
What's sad is that there hasn't been a single person in this thread to wish Grant well. So many of you are so upset about this "terrible" stretch that you've devolved into self-centered pricks. Wish the guy well and move on. We still have a top 10 class and the chance to add a couple more recruits.
I'm more than ready to wish a recruit well on his future . . . at Michigan.
I don't wish any harm on him or anything, but I don't really care about his career at Oklahoma. He can do well, he can do poorly, but committing to a school that already has 3 TEs committed isn't something where I say, hey, totally understandable. I understand Garnett, Reeves, and Kozan. Grant is just a poor decision.
of Brady Hoke pooping gold.
Brady Hoke poops poop.
Stars - they're just like us!
Mom, MGrad and life long fan living in So Cal
And wish him well. I just did not think he was that great or that big of a deal to this class with Funchess and Williams.
I am way more concerned about depth at center and depth at QB. I know we have a commit for next year. This year though we only have 3 scholarship QB's with one who has a long history of getting banged up.
3 is a great numbet
We must not falter! Show strength, show courage, show pride, but show no mercy!
All of you freaking out need to grow up.

AND STOP THINKING STEFON DIGGS IS COMING HERE,BECAUSE HE ISNT!!!!I GAURANTEED YOU HE WILL END OF AT OHIO!!!!
Obvious Sparty troll is obvious.
Gave that away.
Sparty troll may be obvious but unfortunately i agree with him. He has only one visit left and to take and He's not committing somewhere he hasn't taken a visit to.
Also, I hope the rumors that Hoke is recruiting him again are false. If he is, that marks a huge mistake to stop recruiting him a couple months ago. We had a lot of momentum with Diggs, especially those tweets about him and Countess in the number 1 and 2 jerseys, but that all but died due to the in-home i guess not debacle and our decision to stop recruiting after that. Re-opening his recruitment just seems like Hoke admitting he made a huge mistake.
even more "the opposite of good" is if Diamond becomes a Razorback. That would be, like, 0/5 ....'n' stuff. Now, if we can get Muller, Diamond, and maybe a nice surprise i.e. Diggs..then almost all will be good with the world again. Don't get me wrong, we have an awesome class already, and none of the guys were shoe-ins, but the 0/4 thus far certainly is a dose of
One guy I am a little bit confused about is Grant. I mean, Oklahoma is a great football program, but don't they have enough TEs? Whereas, at Michigan he would have the opportunity to see the field almost immediately. Ohh well.
to get Muller, Michigan would have to pull him away from Rutgers. Sure Rutgers needs a Head Coach, but... it's Rutgers. In other words, Michigan has no shot.
... uh ... ah, fuck it.
This shit is getting funny. Is hoke telling these guys to not come to Michigan?
If at first you don't succeed, skydiving isn't for you.
This is horrible. 11-2, Sugar Bowl champions, Van Bergen becoming Man Bergen, Denard's speed, Mattison's coaching ability... It's all gone, man. None of it matters without Garnett, Grant, Reeves, and Kozan! We're probably going to get a mascot now!!! God dammit I hate my life. I'm going to drink bleach! I just can't do it anymore!
I know from experience dude. If you know what I mean.
If we land Diamond and pull one more good recruit away from some other team -- a not unlikely scenario -- today will be forgotten. If we don't, we've still got a class to be envied by 99 percent of the other programs out there, with a good start on 2013.
but not 99
If an OSU fan divorces his wife are they still brother and sister?
"Play hard and with great effort"
Wow, 0-4 on the 5 commits we were looking at. I still hope we close strong.
to close strong. Whiffing on 4 straight recruits means we will not close strong. We did start strong though, so there is that.
Coach 'em up Hoke, let's settle this on the field.
I disagree. If we get Diamond and snag another surprise top recruit from somewhere I'd consider that closing strong. I never thought we'd get all 5.
Rabble rabble this wouldnt have happened under RichRod
/S this is a big Sarcasm post for those who cant get the joke.
Blue is Faster
We're in hell right now, gentlemen. Believe me. And, we can stay here, get the shit kicked out of us, or we can fight our way back into the light. We can climb outta hell... one inch at a time.
Interesting decision and wasn't expecting it.
Best of luck to him at Oklahoma.
On another note are all these other team sending "hostesses" around at the 11th hour? or is this just the stretch of luck that makes me load an earlier save in NCAA to try to salvage things?
Chaos is found in greatest abundance wherever order is being sought. It always defeats order because it is better organized.
