Football Display Case
I don't think they changed Les at all actually
national champs baby
Patrick Hruby is doing God's work.

stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly
rundown of Michigan's riser
needs moar usage
so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
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?
Michigan backed off a kid when it looks like the kid is going to end up elsewhere, but I actually think it's likely to be true here. Don't think this was totally (or even mostly) Wright's call.
There is no time, sir, at which ties do not matter.
That he claims to be a U of M fan, but then goes to a rival school. (I know he hasn't yet, but say he does) Guess the hatred for some of the rivals is not totally shared
There are probably six or seven commits in the 2012 class alone who grew up as Ohio State fans. I think they really end up going to the schools they feel most comfortable at in the end.
Recruit Files: Robert Foster
I'm sure there's a lot of truth to what you say but to not even visit seems a bit odd to me.
Can't disagree with you there.
Damn, that's a shame.
Best of luck to him.
Chaos is found in greatest abundance wherever order is being sought. It always defeats order because it is better organized.
Guess someone really really wants to get screamed at for the next four years.
As was posted in the Madaris thread on Monday, according to Webb, Michigan made the decision to stop recruiting Wright last Tuesday.
The rumor is that it's an attitude/character issue that may have turned the Michigan coaches off.
Would guess the torching in one-on-ones against top-flight WRs in the AA practices, as well as the 2012 cupboard overflowing with projected safeties also played a role.
Not sour grapes, would have loved him in the class if he projected as a true, 6'2" corner.
He may end up being a killer safety in college. God knows the Domers need the help in the backfield. Would be VERY surprised if he played corner in college for the Domers, unless Kelly wants an aneurysm.
With all this secret visiting - not visiting, speculation on who is involved, and he said - she said . . . I don't know what the f-ck is going on! LOUD NOISES!
Disgruntled former moderator. I got a lot of problems with you people!
Grant is making his second visit this weekend though...commitment watch?
Can someone Remind me again why we gave up on Anthony Standifer ??
Supposedly grades. Who knows if that was a cover for something else though, talent or otherwise.
it was confirmed grades by the higher ups. He didn't meet U of M requirements. ( and many others) look for him to be at boise.
Touchdown Manningham! MICHIGAN WINS!
Dee Hart. Kris Frost. Yuri Wright. All "lifelong" Michigan fans who are (or will) playing elsewhere. I no longer subscribe to the lifelong fan meme until signing day.
ah no one listens to me, I made two posts about this in the past couple weeks. I knew (well suspected) this visit would never happen. You follow recruiting for almost 20 years and you see things again and again. Wright's recruitment didn't smell right (no pun intended) the whole way. Not in a shady sense, just in the sense that somebody, us or him, maybe both, didn't have the level of interest that was presumed/stated. Not visiting his "childhood fav" until Jan was a sign, people on the board pointed out that his coach wouldnt allow visits until after the season, but somehow he found time to get to ND and Colorado of all places in Dec. The Colorado visit by itself was real weird for a kid who was/is suppossedly a big recruit from New Jersey.
If I had to guess, we slow played him and maybe ultimately dropped him and I wouldnt be surprised if ND ultimately doesn't take him. Although with Darby dropping and his teammate in the fold, maybe they do. I could also see him ending up someplace like Rutgers.
Just fyi, to explain the Colorado interest, he's friends with a freshman on the team at Colorado, and some of his coaches/advisors/mentors or whatever are pretty close with the Colorado staff.
coaching staff. This has been said before but his performance at the Army All-American game, his practice videos, etc. seemed to indicate that he may not be what we think he is. A lot of experts have cooled off on him as of late. They say he will most likely end up as a safety and that at CB he is very raw and need A LOT of work. Reeves, on the other hand, is more solid, at this point, at corner, so the experts think based on videos, etc.
and another 4/5 star would work for me =)
I wonder how much of his hype had to do with him being a 6'2" corner? Recruiting sites partly rate on the basis of "potential" and height has a lot to do with that when speaking of dbs. It could be that our coaching staff took a close look and, despite the potential, just didn't think he was an elite ball player.

Shane Morris types who are TRUE lifelong fans
Shane says "Michigan is where it's at....GO BLUE!!!!"
and those that grew up following a school (or two), like the school, but are willing to look into other schools......
See....the second guy from the right (Thank God he was the second type of a lifelong fan)
