landing spot. will be interesting to see how he does.
This isn't saying people can't make their own threads about big topics...
PLEASE make a new one (part 2) if this one gets to 3 pages or so...
This is simply to talk about Signing Day news (Michigan OR non-Michigan related) in a "chat form"
...some folks are at work and won't be able to keep up, so whenever there is a big committment or simple stuff you want to chat about, feel free to post!
On the eve of Signing Day, I'd like to give folks a quick opportunity to shed their thoughts on this year's class (as it stands now).
Will people claim that they called that "sleeper" or that 1st round draft pick? Probably.
Will anyone remember this thread in 3-4 years? Absolutely not.
But still, for those bored and interested enough to give their predictions on this years class - LET'S HEAR IT!
Best Player from this class (next year):
Best Player from this class (when it's all said and done):
Sleeper from the 2012 class (3* or lower, per Scout.com):
Late Bloomer from the 2012 class (aka Stevie Brown, Prescott Burgess, etc. - player doesn't come on until late in career):
1st Round Draft Pick(s) from this class:
Best Offensive Player from this class (when it's all said and done):
Best Defensive Player from this class (when it's all said and done):
Your Favorite Offensive Player:
Your Favorite Defensive Player:
Your "I Told You So" Player from this class (please let us know what it is you're telling us - i.e. Drake Johnson was going to rush for 1,000 yards in one season, Erik Magnuson was going to be the best OL of this class, Amara Darboh was going to win a Heisman...let us know your prediction):

If we were in season, I wouldn't post an NBA highlight...but this board has been full of a lot of bad news lately. It could be worse, we could be Kendrick Perkins.
I'm not sure why sometimes embeds work in the initial post of a thread...other times they don't. But here's the link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3w_Vy0lDk_A&feature=g-logo&context=G2cba001FOAAAAAAAAAA
Embed is below.
...Sigh, there are few words in the English language that can accurately describe that "dunk."

I'm not going to link the page because it's behind a paywall. But just wanted to share that ESPN ranked Trey Burke on it's Top 25 Freshman ahead of Austin Rivers of Duke, Quincy Miller of Baylor and Marques Teague of Kentucky.
Edit: I didn't link because there was no useful information for those that don't have ESPN Insider. I would've had there been some relevant free info and the rest paywalled, this wasn't one of those cases. Nonetheless: http://insider.espn.go.com/mens-college-basketball/story/_/id/7450063/top-25-freshmen-kentucky-sec-youngbloods-dominate-rankings-ncb
Things have certainly slowed down around here, so I feel like now is a better time to ask this question rather than bowl week...anyway
To all the photoshop experts, I was wondering if you all could make a few mockups of some away uniforms for Michigan. Here are a couple I were thinking (maize pants for all of them, I'm trying to be as realistic as possible).
#1 2007-2008 Away Jersey's WITHOUT any piping (white jerseys, blue numbers, maize outline, blue collar and blue ring around the bottom of each sleeve)
#2 All white jerseys, blue numbers, maize outline
#3 All white jersey, maize numbers, blue outline...basically out home uniforms, but white instead of blue, and outline the numbers blue.
Any help would be appreciated! I'd like to see us find a classic look for our away uniforms that we could stick to and not touch like the home uniforms (except for special games like UTL).
