That is probably a reasonable guess. People who thought we were getting a bunch of 4 or 5 stars down the stretch were deluding themselves.
|16 hours 35 min ago||Right and none of them have||
Right and none of them have been back except for Butler who went back with the same players. I am talking about building a program capable of making the Final Four every few years. You cannot do that without top talent.
|16 hours 37 min ago||Where did I say we needed||
Where did I say we needed McDonalds all Americans. Lots of great players each year not on the team. This is not a controversial point.
|16 hours 38 min ago||Yea exactly and that team had||
Yea exactly and that team had stars. Thank you for making my point.
|17 hours 12 min ago||Sorry but a team full of||
Sorry but a team full of sleepers doesn't get you to the final four. You need stars too. It is not criticizing Belein to acknowledge that.
|17 hours 13 min ago||Btw how discussing and stupid||
Btw how discussing and stupid is it that shoe affiliation has to be mentioned in a recruiting discussion? I know it's not a surprise that hoops recruiting is dirtier than dirt and the shoe companies are at the heart of it, but it still sucks to hear. I wonder if Addidas may be a big part of the reason that we have missed out on so many top prospects lately.
|17 hours 26 min ago||Winston and Langford maybe,||
Winston and Langford maybe, but I haven't heard anything positive about Battle recently. What have you heard?
|17 hours 32 min ago||You aren't misreading things.||
You aren't misreading things. 2016 Recruiting is totally up in the air right now. I am still waiting for the recruiting bump from our on court success but it hasn't happened yet. While there are no sure things we still have good shots with Winston, Towns and Langford.

I agree on Gentry. That is a guy we don't get with Hoke.
|1 day 11 hours ago||I wouldn't call the results||
I wouldn't call the results amazing. They have flipped a 2,3 & 4 star so far. They are doing the best they can with little or no time but unless they grab 3 or 4 of the top guys left on their board it will be a similar late haul to what Hoke did in his first class.

I'm surprised they haven't reached out to Grant Perry.
|1 day 16 hours ago||Exactly||
that was, is and will always be bad for Michigan.
|1 day 18 hours ago||Well if you consider past||
Well if you consider past results he is easily behind Matta, Donnovan, Self, and Williams.
|1 day 18 hours ago||Yup. His demeanor and lack of||
Yup. His demeanor and lack of confidence concern me as much as his lack of athleticism or shooting ability. He just looks like someone who may not be long for this program.
|1 day 18 hours ago||Yep. Until recruiting picks||
Yep. Until recruiting picks up and we make more deep tourney runs there is no way he can be considered top 3. Top 10 maybe.
|1 day 18 hours ago||If you are including Chatman||
If you are including Chatman and Donnal as your 4 and 5 that is really misleading as they were horribly overrated.
|2 days 10 hours ago||I don't think 11 wins does it||
I don't think 11 wins does it without wins against the top of the conference. Either way I would be happy with a win over Sparty and an NIT invite.
|2 days 10 hours ago||Did Donnal even play? We||
Did Donnal even play? We basically played with 6 scholarship players because Donnal barely played and Chatman was a negative every time he stepped on the floor.
|2 days 10 hours ago||Amazing what he has done with so much adversity.||
Amazing what he has done with so much adversity.
|2 days 12 hours ago||He is not even that. He is a detriment in every way.||
He is not even that. He is a detriment in every way.
|2 days 12 hours ago||Good call. He is quite simply||
Good call. He is quite simply the most overrated recruit I can remember at Michigan since Jerrrod Ward. He is flat out not capable of playing basketball at the major D 1 level.
|2 days 13 hours ago||No kidding||
There is only so much this staff can do in a few weeks. They are scrambling to complete the class as best they can but they are working against other staffs that have months or years-long head starts.
|2 days 20 hours ago||Not if the damage is to||
Not if the damage is to common areas. Which we know is true for much of it. Also, there is no per se liability rule for property damage that I know of. There would still be a causation requirement so no it's not "period"
|2 days 20 hours ago||Say what? I never suggested||
Say what? I never suggested anything like that so put the tinfoil hat down for a moment. It is certainly possible that the damage was caused by members of one or two of the houses but the others are getting lumped into just for being at the same resort at the same time. Much of the damage was reported to be in common areas. But if there is actual evidence that the other houses were involved so be it. Seems like a fair question to ask.
|2 days 20 hours ago||As we have seen in the past||
As we have seen in the past both with football and basketball the numbers usually work out in recruiting. In other words the coaches know where they stand with their roster than we do. Maybe they believe their might be a transfer or two. Maybe they intend to put Hatch on a medical. Maybe they think that Donnal is better at the 4 and not worth a 5th year. If this new recruit can help us then I wouldn't worry about him taking someone's spot.
|2 days 21 hours ago||Who else besides Mattison was||
Who else besides Mattison was there? I can't see G-Matt saying anything like that but the Harbaughs can be blunt and others on our staff don't have much recruiting experience. In any event it sounds like an unfortunate misunderstanding
|2 days 21 hours ago||Hmmm. I wonder if there is||
Hmmm. I wonder if there is evidence of their involvement or just guilt by proximity.
|2 days 21 hours ago||That seems like an odd thing||
That seems like an odd thing to say. Not sure what to believe here. Harbaugh is an odd guy and can say odd things.
|3 days 7 hours ago||I wouldn't put Rawls in the||
I wouldn't put Rawls in the production category. At least not at Michigan. In any event your analysis is why I have been pessimistic about Jims chances of landing too many impact players so late in the game. It just doesn't happen unless you are Urban Meyer and can recruit for all of December.
