this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
|1 year 16 weeks ago||Am I the only one worried||
Am I the only one worried that our spartan and buckeye "friends" will try to paint Bo? If I had to see that, I think I would be sick.
|1 year 28 weeks ago||If he does well enough, they||
If he does well enough, they might try to convince him to be a head coach in waiting. Not that it worked well for Texas when they tried it, but it worked out ok for FSU. Brady is 55, so he might not want to coach forever. Although I am sure he would want to stay around the program like Bo and Lloyd.
|1 year 29 weeks ago||I hate both Clmeson and OSU.||
I hate both Clmeson and OSU. Therefore, I will be rooting for a meteor to hit the stadium.
|1 year 29 weeks ago||While we are at it, take Funk||
While we are at it, take Funk too. Our o-line could use someone new...
|1 year 42 weeks ago||I have a feeeling they may||
I have a feeeling they may try to get Malzone as a preferred walk on candidate. Rivals has his only offers as Bowling Green, Toledo, Western Michigan, and Old Dominion. It sort of fits with what they did with Brian Cleary from U of D last year.
|1 year 42 weeks ago||I believe he attended||
I believe he attended Alabama's camp. As best as I can find, he did not get an offer (doesn't mean one isn't on its way I suppose).
|1 year 46 weeks ago||Cosigned!||
As you said, the D only let up 23 points. Not to mention that one of those touchdowns they let up was a super lucky bounce off the RB's hands 5 yards directly into a receiver's hands behind him.
Did ND have some drives? sure, but all teams will have some drives. However, they put us in a position to win, and that is all that matters. A far cry from the GRob era thankfully.
|1 year 46 weeks ago||Picture proof can be found||
Picture proof can be found here that Hand was there and appears happy.
|2 years 1 week ago||Honestly, i'm surprised it||
Honestly, i'm surprised it isn't a bit higher.
I'm not saying he should have gotten the same money as Izzo, Crean, or Matta, but with the amazing job he has done with our program, i figured at least in the 3 mil range. Still, heck of a job Beiliein. I will echo that he is worth every penny!
|2 years 3 weeks ago||Didn't our longtime track||
Didn't our longtime track coach just retire? Are our track facilities really that far behind those southern schools? If yes, any chance we upgrade our track program soon?
With Brandon's recent talks about "unlimited" budgets for achieving championships, I'm guessing/hoping he wants to win championships in every sport.
|2 years 6 weeks ago||Ugh, just looked to buy||
Ugh, just looked to buy tickets and they are sold out. Would have really liked to have gone to Friday's game.
|2 years 8 weeks ago||Would Green and Fournette be||
Would Green and Fournette be complimentary backs?
Oh and Borges does have expereince running an offense with two star running backs (as he had Cadilac Williams and Ronnie Brown back in the Auburn days).
|2 years 8 weeks ago||Lets not discount Peppers||
Lets not discount Peppers recruiting ability just yet (although we could say the jury is out on it), as he said he is going after Malik McDowell and Da'Shawn Hand for us. Plus, who knows who else he might put in a call to.
|2 years 9 weeks ago||Any chance we offer Campbell||
Any chance we offer Campbell at a different position? Or is he a QB only sort of prospect?
|2 years 19 weeks ago||I haven't bought one in||
I haven't bought one in awhile, but I will be buying this one as soon as it hits the shelves!
|2 years 20 weeks ago||This is why we can't have||
This is why we can't have nice things
|2 years 20 weeks ago||I think you have to establish||
I think you have to establish a culture where kids know even if they are not "the guy," they will still get playing time through being rotated in. I would guess Hoke is going to attempt to do what he did with the dline and have guys rotate in and out on the oline. Therefore keeping people fresh. We really couldn't afford to do that much last year thanks to depth issues, but in the future, I could see that happen.
|2 years 26 weeks ago||Reclassified???||
Kids can reclassify? Any reason why this guy did that? I vaguely recall some kids intentionally get held back so they will be the biggest ones on the teams etc..., but why would a kid rush ahead?
|2 years 27 weeks ago||Excellent news! We could use||
Excellent news! We could use a big time playmaker at WR
|2 years 27 weeks ago||Don't get me wrong, I wasn't||
Don't get me wrong, I wasn't attempting to imply they were slam dunks, just possibilities. A lot of people seem to take x recruit committing elsewhere as a sky is falling scenario, when really, there are plenty of recruits out there, some who are even more skilled. For all the negative news, I like to focus on positives.
|2 years 27 weeks ago||Cosigned!We are in on some||
We are in on some pretty big names including guys like Da'Shawn Hand and Jabrill Peppers. Not to mention Malik McDowell. While losing guys like Webb and Harris is not exactly fun, the coaching staff seems to be doing an excellent job of getting in on some very talented big name targets.
|2 years 27 weeks ago||Ugh||
Someone keep Meyer out of our State
|2 years 28 weeks ago||Interesting note: scout lists||
Interesting note: scout lists appears to like him as a punting prospect as well
He appears to have his own youtube channel
|2 years 28 weeks ago||Don't worry guys, he grew out||
Don't worry guys, he grew out the first one fairly quick. I am sure he can have another one ready come football season in the fall
|3 years 3 days ago||I would guess they might ask||
I would guess they might ask someone to greyshirt, or they are expecting greater attrition
|3 years 7 weeks ago||I think it may have been||
I think it may have been pre-rankings, but our 1998 class has to be up there (saying they would have all stayed)
We had Henson, Fargas, Terrell, Walker, Foote, Hobson, Joppru, June, Howard, and Epstein all in one class.
|3 years 18 weeks ago||Oddly enough, the Michigan||
Oddly enough, the Michigan commits that they rank as four star players are the ones that have video links next to them. To me it sounds reasonable that once they have video on our three star guys, they might see a bump in rankings.
|3 years 19 weeks ago||I have a feeling that a lot||
I have a feeling that a lot of people's thoughts on the video will strongly correlate with if they went to CC or not.
|3 years 20 weeks ago||Does it matter who initiated||
Does it matter who initiated the contact and if they had a prior relationship? I mean Roundtree and McCray both went to the same school, so it is at least possible they knew each other.
|3 years 20 weeks ago||Two can play this game my||
Two can play this game my friend.
OSU should be worried about McCray getting in Cam's ear. The allure of potential early playing time, playing with his friend, and Hoke, Mattison, and McCray all being in his ear may be too much.
Realistic? Probably not, but the coin certainly has two sides.
|3 years 22 weeks ago||It isn't totally out of the||
It isn't totally out of the realm
There are mutilple NFL Draft eligible centers between 6'3 and 6'5
Peter Konz - C - Wisconsin - 6'5
Michael Brewster - C - Ohio - 6'4
Ben Jones - C - Georgia - 6'3
Bob Herbert - C - LSU - 6'3
David Snow - C - Texas - 6'4
Grant Garner - C - Oklahoma State - 6'3
Ben Burkett - C - Northwestern - 6'4
|3 years 22 weeks ago||Google to the rescue - Matt||
Google to the rescue - Matt Trannon and Dion Sims both did that for the sparties. Now to delete my internet history...
|3 years 22 weeks ago||Isn't Kozan a genuine center||
Isn't Kozan a genuine center prospect whlie the guys that we just picked up as well as the guys we have offered are not center prospects? We could certainly use a good center. I mean look at what Molk has done for us.
|3 years 23 weeks ago||Sounds like we are building a||
Sounds like we are building a OL that may look like a more agile Wisconsin line. Which to me just sounds fantastic!
|3 years 24 weeks ago||In a perfect world you get||
In a perfect world you get all three - pass catching, height, and speed. However, seeing as those type of wideouts don't exactly grow on trees, I would rather have ones that can actually catch things than just threaten to catch things behind the D but flub it somehow.
I know they aren't pure receivers, but rumor has it Norfleet and Drake Johnson both have quite a bit of speed to them.
|3 years 27 weeks ago||Someone get Shane Morris in||
Someone get Shane Morris in touch with this kid.
|3 years 33 weeks ago||If you would have told me our||
If you would have told me our defense would have finished statistically higher than our offense at the start of the season, I would have likely called you crazy. Fantastic job done by the coaching staff and players turning the ship around.
|3 years 34 weeks ago||I hate bringing it up but....||
I hate bringing it up but.... any chance if one or more of these O-line kids commit we have someone else currently commited start looking around? The proverbial pool is getting somewhat crowded.
|3 years 51 weeks ago||CC plays the vast majority of||
CC plays the vast majority of their games on Saturday. So, if he has been playing football guess he would be busy most Saturdays since he got into high school.
|4 years 1 week ago||At CC a trick play is a pass.||
At CC a trick play is a pass. Or at least it was back in my day.

Hey, I didn't say it was a good idea. Just that it was technically possible...
|4 years 2 weeks ago||I would think if he accepted||
I would think if he accepted the bball offer and didn't play or practice with the football team his first year, he wouldn't count against the football scholarships. He could then play the following year and would then count against the football scholarships.
|4 years 5 weeks ago||They have the potential to be||
They have the potential to be glorious, can't wait to see them in person.
|4 years 6 weeks ago||Underwear is overrated||
Underwear is overrated
|4 years 6 weeks ago||Better facilities will||
Better facilities will attract better recruits. I don't mind doing something that breaks away from tradition every once in awhile like having a special jersey for a night game if it can contribute to more talent on the field, court, and rink.
Plus, a few of our recruits love the special jerseys. So it puts a bit of excitement into the program during the long summer months. I have faith that Brandon will keep things traditionalist enough to appease most of the grouchy get off my lawn types.
|4 years 7 weeks ago||There is also the possibility||
There is also the possibility that Pryor opens up his mouth even more now that he is done. Maybe he will feel wronged by the school not protecting him more and give all sorts of good information.
What, I can hope right?
|4 years 7 weeks ago||I vote we have the only coach||
I vote we have the only coach in college football to wear the rastafarian hat.

I personally feel like it is the day before christmas and there are a bunch of large presents left under the tree. What will Santa SI writer bring me this year?????
Prediction: Tressel was having sex parties at his house.
|4 years 9 weeks ago||So if Ojemudia is being||
So if Ojemudia is being recruited as a "joker" (not a fan of that term), does that mean we are going to be slowly transitioning from a 3-4 to a 4-3? Or just lots of mixed fronts?
|4 years 9 weeks ago||I'll be honest, I would be||
I'll be honest, I would be pretty darn happy with this if it was the recruiting class we ended up with. Although I'm still not giving up hope on the Gunner, Dunn, Shittu, and Washington MEGA CLASS!
In all seriousness, if we do get Ron Thompson, any chance it causes one of the other TEs already commited to look elsewhere?
|4 years 10 weeks ago||Fantastic news, With Hoke||
With Hoke seeming to secure committments in pairs, anyone have any bets on who throws in next or so? Wormley? Burbridge? Kiel? another DB?
|4 years 10 weeks ago||Co-signed Recruiting is||
Recruiting is half the battle, the other half is knowing.... I mean getting the product right on the field.
However, player development is not something that can occur overnight. It is unfortunately, more of a long term goal. That being said, it appears we are heading in the right direction.
|4 years 10 weeks ago||Good to see so many local||
Good to see so many local guys getting attention.
Rivals and Scout have only Eastern and Western offering this kid currently. But if he is being nominated for an All American bowl, I'm sure there will be some offers rolling in for him.
|4 years 11 weeks ago||I believe Shane Morris||
I believe Shane Morris qualifies as the first half of the pair
|4 years 11 weeks ago||I can't remember the last||
I can't remember the last time we had this many recruits commited this quickly. It really shows that Hoke and his staff are hustling pretty hard.
|4 years 11 weeks ago||I'm guessing maybe radioshow||
I'm guessing maybe radioshow call in?
Also, any chance if he does commit that we can get confirmation if he was that "silent" commit on defense from a bunch of weeks back?
|4 years 11 weeks ago||Seeing as we have gotten||
Seeing as we have gotten commits in pairs, who do we pick up within the next week? A QB for this class maybe?
|4 years 11 weeks ago||A DE/DT/TB? Kid is probably a||
A DE/DT/TB? Kid is probably a heck of an athlete.
Edit: Found a youtube video
|4 years 13 weeks ago||I sort of doubt it was us||
I sort of doubt it was us doing the negative recruiting. It doesn't seem like what Hoke would want his guys to do.
|4 years 13 weeks ago||I'll easily trade a supposed||
I'll easily trade a supposed Pike megaclass for a Gunner megaclass. Just saying, make it happen!
|4 years 13 weeks ago||Well||
Well, the vast majority of teams in the NFL run a two back system now. I wouldn't say it would be the greatest pick in the world. But it certainly seems at least somewhat feasible. Plus the lions could have him a lot higher on their board than most.
I feel weird saying it, but I trust what Mayhew is doing in this organization.
|4 years 13 weeks ago||Fantastic news, my||
Fantastic news, my understanding is that Bri'onte Dunn is a perfect fit for a MANBALL offense.
|4 years 13 weeks ago||Their hard and often||
Their hard and often unheralded work helps make the stars better as well. When you practice against better opponents you get better.
Big thanks to guys like Krikor for putting in all the hard hours.
|4 years 14 weeks ago||Looking forward to - Hello:||
Looking forward to - Hello: Silent Commit post with a picture of a question mark and random speculation
|4 years 15 weeks ago||I vaguely recall reading||
I vaguely recall reading something about the ND ones not being secured properly. I could be wrong on that though. Hopefully these are well secured and the guy at the top can come down if weather gets bad.
|4 years 16 weeks ago||I'll be honest I love the||
I'll be honest I love the potential of having another QB that wants to lure a mega class much like Drew Henson did back in 1998 when he got Walker, Fargas and Terrel to show up (I mean who reasonably wouldn't like that?).
|4 years 25 weeks ago||As you mentioned, he has||
As you mentioned, he has coached on some bad teams. But what did he really have to work with on those teams? Yes, I know Vontae Davis was there for a bit, but it isn't like Ball State, Indiana, Illinois, and Akron were exactly known for great defensive players..
|4 years 25 weeks ago||After listening to the||
After listening to the Barnett interview, he is one of my new faves.
|4 years 25 weeks ago||Dear Mr. Clark, Please||
Dear Mr. Clark,
Please please please do well at Michigan so your coach will ocassionally let kids come our way again.
|4 years 26 weeks ago||Only thing that would have||
Only thing that would have made this better was if those meatheads stuck around till the very end and the cameras caught them all crying (like Oklahoma band girl a few years back).

Nothing wrong with a good pos-bang

Double posted somehow...
|4 years 29 weeks ago||Don't get me wrong, I'm not||
Don't get me wrong, I'm not blaming the cowbells for our loss.
However, I was pretty stunned that they were allowed to use them all game when not even their own conference will let them use them during play. I say whoever plays against them next year needs to bring airhorns and just blare them the entire game.
|4 years 32 weeks ago||Once you learn to catch these||
Once you learn to catch these flies, you will be able to catch any punt out there.
|4 years 35 weeks ago||Hopefully this doesn't deter||
Hopefully this doesn't deter Dee Hart.from coming. It would be nice to have a two headed monster of a backfield .
|4 years 39 weeks ago||I did account for one of them||
I did account for one of them in my comment that "hopefully we have a backup" part. But I wouldn't presume anything at this point.
Sousa is looking around, Marquise is still technically committed to NC. Even if they do come, plenty of people get over/under rated all the time. It is not unforeseeable that they could end up coming and being a clipboard holder or the next heisman front runner. I mean look at how everyone thought Justin Turner was going to be the next great CB to come here.
Don't get me wrong, I hope one of the above comes and has a long career here. I'm just not the type that counts my chickens before they hatch.
My point was that the gentleman above me said that we were set on starters till 2015 which I would say we are far from set, but whatever.
|4 years 39 weeks ago||The problem is that the||
The problem is that the talent gets razor thin after 2012 and in a system that is very QB reliant, we need good and hopefully experienced talent in the wings. I know we should hopefully have a backup, but you never know if that backup pans out or if he gets hurt (Tate and Devin were both during a game this year). I don't know about you, but I don't want to go back to starting true freshman again.
So long story short, grab as many good QBs as you can when you can because this system is majorly dependent on a good QB.
|4 years 45 weeks ago||Honestly, I can say that I||
Honestly, I can say that I don't want to know how Coach Rod finds kids like Denard (although he was a 4 star). He seems to have a knack for finding diamond in the rough type players - see Pat White, Steve Slaton, Chris Henry, etc... and I don't really want the other coaches around the country to be able to beat him to the punch.
I would guess it has something to do with hard work though.
|4 years 45 weeks ago||I suppose this begs the||

How good is Division IV talent in Ohio? Still, those numbers are sick.

Co-sign on absolving your guilt. I don't know what your profit margins will be on said new product. But if you can donate money in an equal amount for all the royalties you would have to pay to osu to Michigan, I'm sure that the universe would be ok. Of course, only do so if this is financially doable.
Plus, there is no shame profiting off of buckeyes.
|4 years 49 weeks ago||I have a feeling they won't||
I have a feeling they won't show much at the scrimmage. Plus they might have people watching the crowd.

It is like he took the media guide and randomly put his finger down and then wrote an article about the person.
Two can play this game Mr. Curtis
The player that most needs to step up by using your very scientific process is none other than (insert drum roll) ....... Joe Reynolds Red shirt Freshman WR from Rochester Michigan.
So yeah, step it up Joe, we are all counting on you.

Anyone else feel almost like a kid on Christmas?

Very cool, going to go look for it after work today. Thanks for the heads up!

I really think it is a 1a and 1b sort of thing.
I would give the slight edge to Chelios overall. I know that Modano is the scoring leader among Americans, but is it a lot easier to score goals from a forward position than from a Defensemen's position (or so I like to tell myself to explain my lack of rec league goals).
|4 years 51 weeks ago||Carson always seemed to have||
Carson always seemed to have the physical tools to be a solid NFL TE, but it just seemd like he couldn't get the mental side of football.
Maybe having Tom Brady throwing to him will make him finally stick.
|4 years 51 weeks ago||I looked at the list and saw||
I looked at the list and saw a few other names that Michigan almost had at one point or another.

Sounds like they are both doing pretty well. Would have been really nice to have Montgomery.

Disagree, you take the job and throw every game against Michigan and other important games.
|5 years 1 day ago||Hazing like many things in||
Hazing like many things in life is a tradition. That is probably one of the main reasons it is still around. That and every other player had to go through it, so they want to be able to put others through it.
In my view, man up and just do what is asked of you (barring something dangerous/illegal).

How did they do it?
My speculation is handing it over the fence to get it past the gate. Getting it past the ushers... that is a whole new story.

Well, seeing as he is keeping things open (despite the commit), hopefully ND has the type of horror season we had when we switched to the spread.
|5 years 2 days ago||I completely forgot||
I completely forgot about DeWayne Patmon. That guy used to be one of my favorite wolverines.
Also, seeing as there are mention of the specialists why no love for kick and punt returners. Breaston was a beast for both!

Not yet. Maybe we could get some good news about the football program today or that OSU is being investigated by the NCAA for cheating or something. That would probably help.
|5 years 6 days ago||My advice - 1. Echoing the||
My advice -
1. Echoing the chill the heck out the day before. As the bar bri people said "the hay is in the loft,' there is no use cramming the night before (in between sessions though is a different story).
2. Show up early for the exam. It will take awhile to check in, you don't want to rush around trying to get a seat 5 mins before the exam.
3. Split your time evenly between questions. It is tempting to write absolutely everything you know, but you do so at the expense of the other questions
4. Get a good watch and at the top of each essay write your stop and start times.
5. If your state makes you use an analog watch (like Michigan does), I found setting it to noon at the start of the test was helpful - math was never my strong point so it made it real easy to know which hour or min I was on.
6. Eat a good breakfast. Try not to overload on liquids. Yeah you have to drink some, but don't drink an epic amount of coffee so you have to get up to use the bathroom every 10 mins.
7. Seriously - bar bri and pmbr know their stuff pretty well. If you've been keeping up with whatever program you are in you will do fine
8. On that note - bar bri and pmbr's questions are much harder than the actual bar exam's questions (I did terrible a few days before the test on the sample mbe, but multi-stated out on the day of the exam)
9. Don't go out with friends on the night before or in the night between tests. Sure dinner is ok, but you will end up freaking each other out. My advice, go out grab some food and get back to your hotel room. Proceed to watch tv or movies.
10. Try to get to bed early - if you are anything like me chances are you won't get much sleep anyways, but at least going through the process will help you feel more relaxed come test time.

The weight thing isn't a super big deal (I mean obviously good job on the weight loss), but according to Rivals he was listed at 254, so that is like a 7 lb loss. Not a huge indication of a desired position switch. I'd figure it is more of an indication of him working hard this summer and sweating some of that weight off.

Does that mean that we have to get really bad "Team Tate" and "Team Denard" t-shirts?

This gives me a lot of hope going into the game.
I sometimes get nervous before opening games (esp against non-cupcake teams), so I might just have to look up this post again a few days before the actual game.
|5 years 1 week ago||Like many others, I have to||
Like many others, I have to give credit where credit is due. Chicago bit the bullet and bought themselves the best chance possible of winning a cup this year. Sure, they might not be able to sniff another one for a few years because of "cap hell," but I tip my hat to an organization that wants to win now for their fans.
Also, despite Scotty having left us to go be with his son in Chicago's organization, I am happy that he has another cup to add to his resume. He is truely a class guy.

I heard on sports raido on the way into work today that Modano will wait at least another month before making his decision. I don't have an article to back that up.

Hmm, learn something new every day.
So how does the school get away with things like BBQ at the Big House then? I doubt many students were using that as their official visit.

Why are all these pro stadiums getting involved? Why not just have it at the larger college stadiums and call it a day?
I would think a rotation between
Michigan, Ohio State, Penn State would likely work.
All hold 100k+ , just make the universities agree to split the gate with the other teams in the conference. Everyone is happy then.

I'm not 100% sure on this, but my understanding is that even on unofficial visits, the school can pay for certain expenses like food.

It is somewhat hard to tell from the picture, but it looks like the plaques have team pictures on them. Which seems pretty coool to me.
Does anyone happen to have better pictures of the plaques? Or do I have to wait till football season?

I'm down for getting more O-Line visiting and being interested. From the sounds of it, Cyrus would be a pretty good pickup if he joins. Oh and he has a sweet name too.
How many oline are we projected to take in this class?

After some of the chokejobs that i have seen San Jose pull, I would be concerned about bringing him on. Not saying that it is his fault, but more he didn't step up when it counted. Big goaltenders play big when it matters most.

Interesting thought... but our admissions department probably wouldn't clear them anyways. From what I recall, a lot of people have trouble transfering credits to Michigan (part of the reason why we don't get a lot of JUCOs).

Nice offer list.
The Duke and Vandy offers (and of course Michigan) lead me to believe that this kid has a decent GPA.
Pretty good film for a LB as well.

A minor point to elaborate even further
Dantonio hasn't put any big time WRs in the NFL either (started coaching in 07). Giving him credit for Rogers or Plaxico would be like giving Rich Rod credit for Braylon.
Sidenote: Not saying that you guys were giving him credit, but I am sick of people talking about MSU like it is wideout university.
|5 years 7 weeks ago||Sucks that he had some family||
Sucks that he had some family difficulties, good luck on clearing that up.
BTW, is this a new trend that some coaches are getting legal custody of some of their players? I never remember it happening back when I was in HS. I seem to remeber a few recent recruits having this happen (Gholston comes to mind).
Mad Props to the coaches for opening up their homes to these kids who are having difficult times at home. Not so much props to those who are doing it to try to exploit the system.

I was wondering that same thing.
I mean I don't doubt that they will have a solid team. But they have to replace a lot of proven talent
#1 overall draft pick Sam Bradford
#3 overall draft pick Gerald McCoy
#4 overall draft pick Trent Williams
#21 overall draft pick Jermaine Gresham
That just seems like a bit too much to replace to me to be #1 overall team this year.

Don't forget that he was just learning the offense this spring. Most guys his age are still in highschool at this point. Is he ready to start yet? No. But hopefully time with the playbook over the summer and fall camp will get him in that position if we need him. Though I do agree with the earlier posters that he would likely benefit from a redshirt.

I was also at a midnight showing (and at work by 9am wooo!!!), we also had a loud chorus of boos rain down when the Eclipse trailer came on.
Overall I liked the movie a lot. I thought the CGI was better in this one than the previous one. I think the plot was a bit too forced in this one as compared to the first. Would definetly get two thumbs up for me.
Oh and concur on Scarlett Johansson being incredibly hot.

2. Tell him that your money is currently tied up with the Nigerian Prince. Once he dispurses you the money he promised, you will be more than willing to join his scheme.

As for whether Moss plays - it would probably depend on his contract? I think another former Michigan player Brandon Kaleniecki was also on that CC team.

If I were the lions I would select best player available (unless it is at a position they are already pretty solid at like QB). If Warren fits that, sure pick him. At first I didn't want the lions to touch any Michigan players, but the new coaching staff seems like they might have their act together. I suppose time will tell on that one.

|5 years 17 weeks ago||Best situation would be to||
Best situation would be to trade down for the Lions and pick up multiple players on the D side. However, trades don't happen often for picks that high in the NFL draft. Therefore, just have to go with who you think will help the team the most.
IMO you win the games in the trenches and although Corey Williams and Sammie Hill are both good, it would be real nice to get a great DT. A great DT might not get the high #s of sacks that a great DE gets, but they can wreck havoc, stop the run and make the players around him better. Either Suh or McCoy appear that they will fill that role.
