Any chance he would help with any of the ones we lost today?
landing spot. will be interesting to see how he does.

Can't David Brandon pick up the phone to a couple of these recruits and let them know about his "master plan" and reassure them about their decision to come to Michigan?
It seems like the least he could do.
This website raises my blood pressure on the daily
your avatar raises my blood pressure.
Blood pressure is what raises my avatar.
(It's normal to call it that, right?)
raise my blood pressure
Josh groban "lifts up" your blood pressure as well correct?
With that hair, Beiber has to be from Mississippi!
Tom, if we hire either Miles or Patterson, is there a chance we land frost? Or has that door closed?
Nice, solid news. Tom- Sorry to put you on the spot, but what's your take? Do you have a coaching preference?
He brings in players and he wins. He is blatantly unethical but does not allow the use of used cars (one step ahead of Tressel). He has the highest HDL level in the Big Ten (sorry Dantonio).
Plus he doesn't really care of Goudis comes here because the Mad Hatter NEVER ACTUALLY KICKS FIELD GOALS.
Hey Goudis - you know how to throw a flip bounce lateral over your head?
LSU's kicker made 26 field goals this year.
All the trick plays are through the holder? THAT MAD SON OF A BITCH....
He's gone King George III on us - crazy bastard....
miami is having a huge recruiting weekend, 14ish spots to fill have something like 40 recruits coming to town. That maybe the last big event before the dead period before recruiting becomes a bit clearer everywhere
Miami's recruiting situation is similar to ours. They have a coach, but at this time only have 8 commits. It looks like more are on the way, hopefully not Crawford or Goudis.
I am not sure exactly who they're targeting but talking with miami fans today they expect it to be defense heavy. Haven't seen much on what recruits think of golden yet so I have no idea what to expect myself
I can't believe that Miami fans were excited about the Golden hire. Cane fans were probably expecting a big name hire.
BTW, what is going on with the Aaron Lynch kid? Is he going to switch to ND?
supposed to be at freshman orientation this weekend
And Thanks! How come youre always on target and Joe Schad is out in left field?
Because Tom actually talks to the people he's updating us on.
Schad just retweets or makes sh!t up based on what he speculates to be likely.
Retweeting has made people not responsible for "news" they break.
I had a bad feeling about this thread when I clicked. Thankfully it's not horribly bad.
This past week has just made me sick.
I never thought I would be sitting here wondering if Michigan hiring Les Miles would help our chances retaining currently committed recruits.
I think I'm gonna throw up.
Tom, thanks for the info. Good to hear that Miles would help with Dallas. Any other recruits he would help with? Frost, etc?
Get us Frost for sure - unfortunately that will force us to grayshirt David Cone. I don't know if that is trade worth doing....
No one needs to see the chunks on the floor bro - then we'll all throw up. Chain reaction...
Oh wait Joe Schad just tweeted:
Miami recruits all to be hosted by Luther Campbell. Recruits appetite for love to be satisfied.
Unsure what that means exactly....
OH WAIT I LIED I SPELLED SCHAD RIGHT BUT IT'S MORE THAN 150 CHARACTERS.
This is now the worst thing you have ever done
Well...what can we say.... who comes & goes will be known come NSD.................
Usually I like Tom's post but I have a feeling they aren't going to be very uplifting these next few weeks. Thanks anyways Tom.
If UM grabs a big name coach then a I see a few recruits coming back to UM. DB has a to nail it with this one otherwise recruiting will take a bigger hit.
The next coach will just come in and develop our current kickers that have been oh so horribly mismanaged by RR, right?
Didn't he have an LSU hat on the table today?
can just concentrate on getting the 18 of 22 returning starters back next year, it will go a long way for us. Our team is really young right now, and this recruiting class isn't the end of the world. At the end of the day, it will be full of 3-4 star guys who we probably won't see much of for a couple years.
No matter who we retain we will have little to no seniors in 4 years. It's devastating. At this rate we will have a younger than average team for the foreseeable future. It's simply not an option if we ever want to return to glory.
If we are ND might as well start taking on their stupid sayings.
Last year UT (Tennessee) hired derek dooley and picked up 13 pledges after the army game with 5 four stars and a 5 star.
there is still hope my friends
We might be completely out of it for Frost? I said this on another thread but WTF God please stop youre being an ass. When will it be dawn?
Will Frost be enorolling before NSD? This seems like a major factor in his likely destination.
Spread Offense by Bobby!
out of the Josh Groban song?
It seems like these recruits were shocked when RR was fired. Where have they been the last month?
during visits and telling them "RR is going to be here for a long, long time" had something to do with it.
Thanks, Cap... err you.
where is that quote from? doesn't really sound like something he would be foolish enough to do
that probably didn't happen.
when it did?
RT @mc_espn: UNC commit Marquise Williams reports Mich AD David Brandon told recruits Saturday Rich Rod would be in Ann Arbor "a long time."
Well I stand corrected. I figured DB would be smart enough to avoid such a brash claim.
I hit rock bottom when I decided to be this program's wingman and took the fat chick home from the bar last night. I thought the world was ending due to this whole coaching search. I woke up this morning and realized the opposite, then had to ditch a fat girl before breakfast....... not an easy task! I took mine for this team, now find us a coach Brandon, you dipshit! ( still a little bitter about the fat chick)
So if we has kept RR we would have had: Hart,Frost,Lyon, and the rest of the recruits would have been solid. Also if we got a new DC, with all the freshmen coming back the defense could have been 2011's Denard in terms of improvement........hope DB knows what he's doing.
We would've had a current roster that had lost faith in their head coach.
From everything I had heard RR still had the support of the team. I adfmit I haven't read all the million posts that have occurred since the fire, but I hadn't heard anything about the players not having faith in RR. Are you just pulling this out of your ass?
If that is the case, might it not be possible that the team was reacting to all of the negative things being said by the fans and the media as well as the very real feeling over the final month that a coaching change was inevitable? They are, afterall, largely 18 and 19 year olds who tend to, you know, be reactive emotionally.
If DB would have said after OSU that RR was going to get a achance to coach throughout his contract, the atmosphere and mentality leading up to the bowl game would have been different.
Tom, thanks for providing something I can read and actually believe.
need to find our coach.I hope it is a guy that has Michigan ties,Les Miles.We still have time to get our recuirting class right.GO BLUE!!!
We really need Dallas Crawford. Anytime we have a shot at a talented corner, gotta lock him up.
Just commenting so this is put in the Tom tab.
"Tony Posada and Dallas Crawford both said they will "most likely" stick with Michigan. That most likely is their way out, so it's not 100%. Dallas is being actively recruited, so that's something to watch. [Ed. He did say he was "solid" on Facebook today, FWIW.]"
The use of "most likely"...kinda implies they were looking for a way out and now they got one....why would they want a way out?
Crawford has named miami his leader, visiting Miami, UNC and USC(e? I am guessing) and will decide after his final visit
I've read on various sites that at one time there were 4 silent commits to Michigan. I've learned that Frost was one. Could someone enlighten a newbie (you say howdy, I say hi) as to who the other 3 possibly were?
