I'VE HAD JUST ABOUT ENOUGH OF YOU SONNY
Including this year's participants...
geez those 08 and 09 class had some major bust in them.
Yeah, that's pretty much well established at this point, but it's still amazing to actually look back and see it. And it's not like some just didn't work-out at UM, but a lotdidn't accomplish anything at all. I mean Je'ron Stokes can't even crack the depth chart at Bowling Green.
Like a 6 year old...
After two and a half hours watching, I'm convinced the organizers made a conscious effort to put Butt and Boutte on separate teams.
LOL nice offensive PI there on the 2 point conversion.
We look bad! I turned this game off to not watch it yet I still get a score up date. Not looking forward to the rest of this season!
you recruited last year, Trey and Amir along with the other recruits from that class have been subpar performers thus far, especially the big guys
That OSU offer to Quick guess it wasn't committable. Seeing how he's playing in this game, totally understandable. He's a bust.
EDIT: /s just in case.
did Brian predict the score for this game
Mitchell to ohio, bummer but expected
UT is losing a lot of instate talent.
That kid has some big guns for a high schooler. Hopefully he ends up sucking
Said something to Derrick green in the handshake but couldn't make it out. Hopefully it was, "see you in the spring"
Does Derrick Green have a commitment date?? I can't remember. And correct me if I'm wrong but he wil no longer be enrolling early, right?
He has said it will be "sometime in January."
He was never planning to enroll early.
After sitting at #1 for a long stretch in the spring, our misses with top kids (LaQuon, LM3, Fuller, Isaac) and competitors landing 5 & high 4 stars bumped us to 6 in Rivals rankings.
Frustrating to see ND and OSU at #1 and 3, respectively.
It's a little bit of a bummer to see us ranked under 3 teams we lost to this year after being ahead for so long, but just by the Rivals rankings we're very close in the point totals. If, for example, Cameron Hunt were to commit he would push our point total up over 100 points and we'd leapfrog Florida, USC, and Ohio. We're very much in the mix for the top 3 as these classes finish up.
It is a bummer, but on the bright side: our class is #6 in the nation with a shot to still move up a little. The future is very bright.
And really, the difference between the top classes can't be too large. We'll see these guys on the field, where it counts.
Oh God, can we just please, please, PLEASE, kill this meme with fire right now. Just because some teams get kids to commit at All-american games and we get them in the spring means nothing. Would it make you feel better if all our commits in the AA games had committed to us at the actual AA games? Does that make them better? Does that make our class better?
Jesus, we have a top-5ish class depending on which site, and it's ridiculously close how the top classes are. As mentioned above, if we added Cameron Hunt, who is a 'generic' four star, and Green, and we jump all the way to number 3 (above Ohio). Of course this is provided all else stays the same, and it probably won't (but we could end up being helped anyways). Thisis just looking at Rivals, which very much emphasises the very top (only measures the top 20) and gives extrodinary bonuses to their Rivals 250, with an even heavier emphasis on the top-of-the-top. On Scout we're still number 1 because they take class size into account. So is the number 100 prospect 50 points (i.e. the difference between #6 and #4 on the rankings) a better prospect than a 'generic' 4 star? I dunno, we could have that debate, but that's what Rival's rankings measure.
The point is that we have a fantastic class, and the coaches pretty much got it all before the season started. The upper echelon on the recruiting rankings are all so close, the differences in field success will come down to coaching, and getting these types of classes year after year. Considering we now have two consecutive classes of this caliber, I would say we're well on our way to being very good. Of course I would love to see Ohio and ND fall of a cliff, but that's a pretty unrealistic hope unless they hire the completely wrong coach.
OSU and ND do not have better classes than M. Rivals.com is not the end-all be-all when it comes to recruiting rankings. We currently have the #1 class according to Scout.
I have no idea why you're so depressed. The 2013 class is full of guys that were Hoke's staff's first choice. Jeez.
If Shane Morris decommits and goes to OSU, then we can panic.
simply that it's frustrating to see ND and OSU get more recognition (based on Rivals as affiliated with the Army game) at this point.
If we hit on just a couple of our top targets and/or they miss, then we likely keep #1 or 2. It's close.
After losing to both on the field by small margins, winning the mythical recruiting title would steal a little thunder from them.
Yes, because we all know that the one thing that matters is...
...how many prospects have a Michigan hat on their selection tables.
I'm saying you're taking things like whose hat sits on a table too seriously.
Well next year, instead of getting our committments early, we will tell them to hold out until the all star games so they can pick our hats on national tv. wishing green realizes that he can play early and often at michigan instead of the other schools. don't understand why kids go to schools who already have a load of 5 star talent from previous classes playing the same position as they play and get mad when they don't get playing time.
