Shaun Crawford's dad responded to Fitz's tweet about graduation claiming that Shaun is 100% Michigan.
I know this joke is tired - but this is obviously only because Urban doesn't want him.
I'm pretty sure that if you have to preface the joke with "I know this joke is tired" then it's probably time to rethink telling it.

maybe that comment wasn't as funny on the internet, I have certainly made it in front of my wife joking before and she laughed... and not the 'you''l pay for this later' kind of laugh...
I also have a sense of humor similar to what you'd find on Family Guy, so there's that.

In all seriousness, there is a long ways to go with his recruitment and anything can happen so take these statements with a grain of salt.
And our D will be solid. Can't wait!
Its seems like the words "soon" and "next year" have become synonomous with Michigan football. I can't wait until they are "there."
Don't think anyone thought Michigan would be back in 3 years. I myself figured 4 to 5. Seems were on track for that.
I think there were many that thought given our schedule and trajectory following the BCS win that we would be in contention this year.
But let's say you're right and many people weren't expecting us to be back this soon...then who thought the transition that started in 2008 should have been complete by 2010? I'm not trying to start a fight, I'm just trying to make sense out of your statement because it seemed the powers that be felt that 3 years was ample time for a transition three years ago.
I thought we'd be in BG Championship games both of the last two years.
I hate being a Negative Nancy, but with Michigan it always seems like next year will be "our year." Well, that next year has come and gone several times.
What's going to be the excuse next year if we go 7-5 or 8-4 again?
I'm pretty sick of this comment. Can we at least put it away until it's actually in season again? There's really nothing to do at this point but wait until next year sooo...
I remember back in 09 saying "Wow, just wait till Denard is senior and all these recruits are finally seniors! Richrod's offense will be installed! We'll be awesome!"
Now it's "Just wait to Al Borges gets all the pieces to his offense. All this talent is gonna get there soon. We'll be awesome in a few years!"
Not trying to start a flamebait war, it's just that we've been saying the same things to ourselves for like 5 straight years now because we still aren't "there"
when richrods guys were seniors and the rest of the guys had experience behind them in the same scheme, our offense was awesome. so awesome that they even made borges look good...
what were you saying again about a system taking 4-5 years to develop in college?
In true Saban-process theory, you are never "there". You are only as good as what you do today. Like anything in life winning comes down to daily preperation and execution. What you did yesterday doesn't matter any longer and what you do tomorrow won't matter if you don't take care of business today. The only "there" is through being in the moment every moment to moment and that gives you the best chance of a good result, but gurantees you nothing. If you're only focused on the result of winning a game, getting a recruit, beating an opponent, etc. you will never be satisfied. You can only be satisfied with the idea that all is done to the best of your effort and let the chips fall where they may and move on.
Play Like A Champion Today!
Play like it's 25 years ago, today. (1988)
I think the "Returning to glory since 1988" thing might have to get retired. Even if it was a flash in the pan, they were in the BCS championship game last year. Not like we've been more impressive lately (In 1997 year we didn't even have to play the #2 team to claim the national title)
Last year was their tiny little oasis in the middle of the desert, and just like a tiny little oasis, as soon as they thought they could taste the water, the mirage disappeared.
That expression is really getting old, especially from a fan base like yours. Yes your most recent (debatable) NC was 97, before that it was the 40s. Truly amazing you keep going to that well like its the last and most familar thing to do.
You know what's amazing about a fanbase like yours? You think you're still relevant. If it wasn't for NBC, and a string of phenomenally good luck last year(aka 6 turnovers for example), kids today would probably think Notre Dame was some chick called Noder.
I think I speak for a large majority of our fanbase when I say, I like our fanbase. Yes, we will continue to bring up 1997, and the only debatable issue is which coaches did Tom Osbourne call in favors for to steal an outright national championship from the obvious best team.
Here's to hoping in 13 months we can talk about the 2014 Wolverines as the greatest team ever, so we won't have to go to the well anymore.
As cLuck would have it, the figthing Irish won't see the winged helmets for awhile after next year.
So now it is our fault that there was no BCS or Playoff in '97? We won every game, against a difficult schedule, that was all their was to do then. Besides, we don't have to go back to '97. In 2006 we were one Shawn Crable dumb late hit penalty from being in the National Championship Game, and we also happened to be winning a lot between 1997-2006, not to mention a BCS win 2 seasons ago.
We misfired on one coach, and had some lean years because of it. You guys have missed on every coach since Lou Holtz, and even he has been reduced to a lame talking head, with a lisp and too many stale motivational one liners. If we are living in the past...well pot meet kettle. You better hope Brian Kelly is not a one year wonder ala Tyrone Willingham, because despite his big red spittle oozing sideline demeanor, he is a very good coach, and if he can't pull you out of the mediocrity you have been mired in for the last 2 1/2 decades your program may be past saving.
However, if Hoke is indeed who we think he is, and recruiting holds pat, our players will develop just like they did back in '97. People forget that we are playing with a patchwork of young kids, and even the upper classmen weren't guys that were condsidered anything special. Go look at the offer sheets for guys like Jake Ryan, Desmond Morgan, or Jeremy Gallon, not exactly a list of premier schools. So despite all of the complaining on this board, this staff has shown they can develop talent. Our relevancy won't be something that NBC has to pump up. People forget that USC, Oklahoma, Alabama, and many other storied programs had lost decades. Michigan by comparison has been the model of consistency for many years.
Yeah I hate waiting for next year and I hate how much we talk about it, but I would rather root for a Michigan team that drives me mad and plays their hearts out, like they did this year, than a program that chronically underachieves. Give me a Denard Robinson or a Devin Gardner gutting it out and leaving every ounce of effort on the field, over guys who make up online girlfriends and look scared to tackle when they do make it to National Championship, or QB's that can't pass a test without a cheat sheet.
Now don't get me started on the scumbags to the south of us.
Say what you want about our coaches… The players love to play for those guys. It'll happen. It's just going to take "some time."
We said it. And the next year they were in the Sugar Bowl. Since then we knew it wasn't 'our' year, and it hasn't been. Next year = better than this. 2015 = our year.
I don't recall many people saying "next year is our year" after we lost by 50 to Miss St in our bowl game.
@ND, @MSU and @OSU will be tough. Going 8-4 or 9-3 will be an improvement.! We may have to wait for the next next year (2015) to see 10 wins or more.
Next year is MSU @ Michigan.
We're at East landfill again next year.
I stand corrected. At least Penn State is a home game. I almost wish it wasn't so we could get all of them at home in 2015.
I don't know man. Eventually we have to turn a corner with road wins, don't we? And, it seems next year is the first time the 2012 class will be upperclassman so that's as good as a time as any. Plus I don't see MSU, ND, or OSU being unbeatable. MSU looses a lot on defense. OSU looses the defensive backfield, the offensive line, and Hyde. ND gets back Gholson, but with a year off he may be rusty (we play them early in the year)...they weren't that great last year anyway. Plus they lose their best playmakers on defense as I assume Tuitt goes pro and Shembo and the rest of the linebackers graduate. I know it's UM on the road, but those don't seem like un-winable games.
No ND wasn't great, but we still had wins over 3 top25 ranked teams in MSU, ASU & USC. It was a perplexing year to say the least.
Tuitt is not a lock to go pro at this point and while Shembo graduates the rest of the LB corps remains intact for the most part, including freshman Jaylon Smith.
The team as a whole was playing under the injury shadow all year, specifically the secondary. They should bounce back nicely.
With Golson back I expect to see a lot of Folston at RB and a more dynamic offense than was run under Rees.
I thought the 1st team at LB was Smith, Shembo, Calabrese, and Fox. That's 3/4 gone. According to my calculations they are losing 6 starting defensive players and 7 if Tuitt goes pro (Schwenke, Shembo, Calabrese, Fox, Jackson, Collinsworth, and possibly Tuitt).
I'm sure they won't suck...they have enough talent to be a winning team. But, UM, Stanford, and USC will all be difficult games. I guess it depends who else they schedule next year. I see them as a 9-3/8-4 type team...pretty similar to UM.
switch. Once he finds it, no other team will ever win a game. Finding the switch is key, otherwise we just keep trying different things, year after year, recruit after recruit.
Their replacements are young and are making execution mistakes.
Having young tackles are statistically the worst weakness you can have on an O-line.
Lets just end this crap season with a win and hope they start 2014 with a little fire....against teams other than ND.
Fitz is a great player for a young recruit to follow...he went through some hard times, grew up a ton, and represents the heart of a lion when he's on the field. I'm proud of him and find it a good sign that one of our touted recruits gets it already. Have a great Bowl Game Fitz.
I too am 100% for Michigan
247Sports had some season stats for Shaun Crawford, incidentally. As a CB, he has 82 tackles with 8 TFL, 2 INTs, 5 pass breakups and 2 forced fumbles as well as 2 fumble recoveries. As a WR, he has 16 receptions for 258 yards and 2 TDs. He has some decent rushing numbers as well - 66 carries, 808 yards and 8 TDs.
Wait...are you following a recruits dad?
Steve Lorenz re-tweeted it....at least that's where I first saw it.
Ahhh. Ok. Im kinda new to twitter. Still figuring stuff out. Thanks fam.
Don't say fam.
hes probably following Tremendous who retweeted it.
Why would you conjure up that scenario?
I try not to let myself get to married to the 2015 commits when we haven't even signed the 2014 commits yet. I am super excited about Crawford, Campbell, and Harris, but I try to essentially think of them as Michigan leans, because so so much can happen between now and their signing day.
Hoke had a great year in his first year and his first full recruiting class was such a improvement for UM. But, slowly but surely pressure is mounting on getting on-the-field results in order to keep the recruiting momentum going. This year we started to see how our results on the field have had an impact on our recruiting. I think next season will be even more important. If UM doesn't win 9 games and contend until the last game of the season for a division title we will start to see some decommittments, especially from the likes of the top end of the class like Campbell, Harris, and Crawford. It's one thing to go 9-3 and miss the B1G championship by losing the last regular season game of the year. It's another to go 7-5 and hear grumblings about coaching jobs while UM watches their rivals play for the conference title. Eventually having top 10 recruiting classes has to equate to top 10 post-season rankings and I get the feeling that eventually is next season. There is no excuse to be any less than the #2 team in the B1G from here on out.
We haven't seen decomittments yet so why would we then? And where did we see the results this year start to impact recruiting? Our recruiting has been fantastic. This post is purely speculative but you present it as fact.
Even with another season next year similar to this one I don't necessarily foresee a lot of decommits. I mainly worry about Campbell because he is the "trophy commit" of the class, even though one could argue Harris might turn out to be better. Campbell is also from Florida, so he has top schools essentially surrounding his doorstep.
I know your post wasn't directed at me, but I definitely agree with you that Hoke and Co. have been good at closing guys out and suffering minimal decommits. I do think that another middling season next year will wipe some of the optimism from the program's future and effect recruiting more than it did this year, though.
Our recruiting has been great, but as I mentioned I beleive it has to eventually translate to more wins. TVH has said this a number of times too. And, of course the idea that pressure is mounting to achieve more on-field success next year is merely my opinion as is evident by the words "I think" in my post.
That aside, we have seen decommittments such as Gareon Conley and David Dawson who of course eventually came back. In addition we have seen talk of potential decommittments from Peppers and Crawford. If you don't think the results of our on-field play has impacted them I'm not sure what to tell you. Peppers cited rumors of Hoke getting fired as a reason for possibly visiting other schools. Those rumors are the direct result of losing games.
I agreed with you that our play effects recruiting...
Obviously not the point of the post but when you say "I think" in the beginning of a long paragraph it is not implied that it applies to the rest of the statements in the paragraph as well, especially when there are multiple points being made.
And the rumors of Hoke being fired are not a direct result of losing games. They are an indirect result of losing games. They are a direct result of a bunch of trolls, opposing coaches, and click-seeking media types making shit up. You said it yourself, Peppers cited the rumors as a reason, not the play on the field. All the high level commits have repeatedly said they're not worried about the performance because they've been told all along, and it's just common sense, that the team is young a building.
direct result of conversations with rival coaches. When the season was more successful, he was going to the NFL - stop trying to create drama, there is plenty to go around.
If you want a recruits take on the season, look at the recent article written about Marshall.
Having top10 recruiting classes really doesn't mean much if the kids aren't coached properly. So your assertion that top10 recruiting classes HAVE to equate to higher rankings is flawed.
Notre Dame knows this after the Charlie Weis days...
I would rather go 7-5 and win the last game of the regular season, than 9-3 and lose the last regular season game. I realize you didn't say it was an either/or, I just wanted to make sure everyone knows how much I hate the Buckeyes. Beat Ohio.
Would have liked to see that #GoBlue with an #EatADickUrban
Let's hope so. The talent will definitely be there, but there's a brutal road schedule, and breaking in a lot of new guys on both sides of the line, where we've been pretty questionable the last two years. Lots of talent, but much of it unproven.
lol crawdad. solid work to Mr. Crawford for that handle.
Can't wait to see both Shaun and Jabrill in the defensive backfield together.
I was wandering the twitterverse last night and saw a tweet from the younger Crawford regarding the 30 for 30 about Maurice Clarett. Apparently the way the university handled the situation didn't sit to well with him.
Develop and work their way up into the depth charts.
I too have been guilty of high-end-class = automatic high end season, I think we all ate up the hype from the excellent class that Hoke brought in and the pinnacle of that was Notre Dame.
Alas, there is a pesky offset/lag from getting a nice class to producing a high end season. Probably every player and coach has 5 things they wish they did differently during the season. But that's the game of football. The team has to hit on all cylinders and get some lucky breaks along the way to truly be great.
I forget who said that Hoke will win a NC if he stays long enough, and I still believe that. Although the road is a little rockier I think he will prove to us eventually what he did at Ball State and SDSU were not flukes, and rather a skill that can be applied elsewhere (meaning here!!)
Well HELL YEAHHHHH he is.
Little guy who hits like ton of bricks. Totally underrated by the services and love that chip will grow on his shoulder. Great tape and athlete. I would love to have that heavy hitter back there along with Dymonte. Plus, love to take him away from Urbs. Stay blue son!
FWIW, 247 Sports just reported that Crawford will be visiting Ohio State on Feb 8th after attending an awards banquet in Columbus. This one probably isn't over.
As the site grows so do the pessimistic ass clowns... Why we have to put brady on trail time after time is beyond me... Is it the sites attempt to get more clicks? Do people really think recruits/players don't pay any attention to what they have to say?Neg me if you must, but its more frustrating/embarrassing to see our fanbase do more harm than our record.
Um, what on Earth are you referring to?
those who always wet their maize & blue diapers whenever commintment *mentions* another school. Its quite embrassing...to say the least.
I wonder...where did the *doubt* creep into 100% blue,cause urban offered??
I , for one, think of our beloved coach as "pleasantly plump" and believe that his resemblance to a teddy bear is partially why he gets on so well with recruits and family. I'd like to find out who has put him on trails. We all know trail walking will lead to weight loss and who knows how that will impact recruiting!
He is on the recruiting trail - duh!
Would love to have him in the class.
I find it hard to worry about Crawford. The dude still has 14 months before signing day. I have better things to do than worry about a de-commit for 14 months...Ok maybe I don't.
