I just don't know what to do.

No it is falling. Get back in the fallout shelter before the Communists get you!!!!!!!
had an early signing period....Sigh!!!!
Why? So that an 18 year old kid is forced to go play for a coach they may or may not like in a system that may or may not fit their skillset? If there was an early signing period (technically there is one) there would have to be exemptions in the event of a coaching change which really would do nothing for our situation.
I for one would be surprised as hell if the coach, whoever that may be, would leave a top prospect like Dallas "out in the cold." We need more talent on that side of the ball regardless.
(That bowl game can't get here fast enough).
Thanks Tom, I really appreciate your take on this with the updated information! Everyone, coaches included, want to be in a place where they are loved and appreciated...why not expect the same from a recruit. thanks again!
He just needs to come up to Michigan again and this deal will be sealed. No worry guys I'm not worrying
Dallas hasn't said anything about Miami and the new staff. He was shocked when he went there and they only had 27,000 fans in the stands
Seriously. Was he exaggerating when he said this or r there really only that few there? Hard to believe theyre only getting 27K.
The Orange you see isn't people wearing Miami shirts.
It's empty seats.
Maybe its the Guinness World Records people who are doing the counting...
is uncomfortable, and dangerous for the skin. I'm sure more fans would turn out if they could count on clouds, some cooling winds, perhaps even with some snow to cool the skin and filter the harsh rays.
That is sad. The "U" has fallen like a rock.
Miami has never consistently drawn large crowds - even when they were dominant
Great timing,earlier Crawford thread was amusing, and of course turned into a CC/ DB thread.
His head coach likes Michigan, and the current coaching staff too, which helps. He always has good things to say about Michigan.
I think we often forget how big of a decision this is for these kids. IMO, it is very smart to have a back up plan because you just never know what could happen. That said, you won't find a place that loves their sports teams more than Michigan. Go Blue, Dallas!
Seems like a smart and responsible approach for someone in his position. Very mature. It also seems like he has a HS coach who knows the system and hasn't panicked. Not a bad lesson for this Board
... but I've sort of resigned myself to this:
1) If RichRod stays, we keep our recruits
2) If RichRod is asked to leave, we have more serious things with which to be concerned than this year's recruiting class.
So, at this point, any recruiting news to me is sort of dulled by the uncertainty around the coaching situation.
Yep. I would say we should all relax on the recruiting news for another month or so, but we all know thats not gonna happen.
Enjoy the drama (I know I will).
I can worry a little less now
If USC wants him, we'd do real well to keep him. They get the A-listers only. Kiffin isn't all that well thought of by most people, but he is a hoss recruiter. He came in and griped about the talent Carroll left because it wasn't like 05-08 when they set a record for planting guys drafted to the NFL.
Them wanting Dallas tells me something.
Michigan recruits don't have to be Kiffin approved to be good recruits.
if USC is offering him one of the 4.3 scholarships they're allowed to give out this year.
I gain a sense of peace, calmness and better view of the world.
Thanks for posting again!
Its good for him to have a back up plan, don't see any reason to panic from that. There are others doing the same thing
At some point, these kids would be nuts not to have a plan in case Harbaugh comes in and isn't interested in keeping them. I'd tell my kid to do the same thing.
No offense to you but why do you have so much interest what happens on the Michigan boards? I certainly don't go to Notre Dame blogs to follow Irish football. Why does Mgoblog appeal to you?
/not trying to be a jerk
Cant answer for why he/she is interested in our board but I can tell you the feeling is mutual. Irish wasnt posting for a while and there were quite a few "Where is Irish" posts on the board.
MGoBlog has a signal-to-noise ratio that blows away most other college football forums. It is actually possible for Irish (the individual, not the fan base) to post here and not have the discussion go to shit in three seconds. Maybe I'm wrong, but I doubt there is a ND blog you could go to and talk about Michigan or ND football without being immediately shat upon.
I also gather (from reading him over the past two seasons) that Irish roots for Michigan when they're not playing ND. I mean, I don't think I could go on an Ohio State blog, because I can't say the same about them. I'm not sure Irish could go on a USC blog -- the animosity there is pretty intense, at least judging from my father, a USC grad -- the only team he hates more than ND is Stanford.
Great information as usual.
i assume, and it appears other do as well, but can you please confirm that USC = southern cal, not south carolina?
Yes, Southern Cal.
does TomVH only have 19784 points?
Well done, sir, as always.
Because he is God.
Where TomVH has his MgoPoints listed, it should just say INFINITY.
If Brain can do million-point negbombs, I would be willing to bet he can do million-point posbombs. I nominate Tom VH for the first million-point posbomb.
That's all well and good Tom, but if Dallas Crawford doesn't decommit, what will be the new reason to fire DB?
I heard DB was behind Bristol Palin's run on Dancing With The Stars.
Frankly, this is a smart move by Dallas, you can't blame him for looking around a bit. Hell, I've bled blue my whole life but you can bet I would at least take a look at usc & miami if they offered me late. Dallas should be rated much higher, he's certainly no sleeper recruit but in a few years there's gonna be a bunch of coaches kicking themselves. Now, if he can just CIA-ninja his boy Sammy some snake-oil we'll all sleep a tad better.
it sounds like Dallas wants to come to Michigan no matter what,We need more players like this.GO BLUE!!!
It just confuses me how a new coach wouldn't like to have another CB recruit with our limited resources at DB, especially one as good as Crawford. I don't see how he'd get left out in the cold. Drama Drama Drama....
Dallas would contribute right away next year
