I do have relatives who are State alums and grew up in Ann Arbor. They NEVER trash talk about MSU sports. I believe because they know Michigan is superior and don't partake in that complex.

Denard was never going to be an NFL QB. He didn't even complete 50% of his passes in high school. His passing stats in college was achieved because of the threat of the run game. Denard's long passes were bubble screens with big YAC or jump balls to Roundtree.
But the OP's question is just bad. Denard was an extremely successful college QB who was never going to be an NFL QB. As a NFL RB, considering the average career is 3.11 years, he's doing better than average.

The biggest factor IMO in recuiting has been caused by scholarship limits imposed by the NCAA. More than 30 years ago, college football coaches had more margin for error being able to offer unlimited number of scholarships. That has been reduced to a limit of 105, then 95, and now a limit of 85 for Divsion I football. More than 30 years ago, elite programs had an ample stockpile of talent and could maintain their dominance and even go on 47 game winning streaks. Now you can't just stockpile talent anymore (Alabama and Ohio State maybe being the exceptions), thus recruiting has become even more important.

Every thread about uniforms someone worries about these companies "messing up" Michigan's traditional uniforms.

So stop your hand wringing and bark up the correct tree.

But this is ultimately Jim Hackett's decision, it's in his job description to worry about this stuff. I would expect nothing but a thorough, well-considered decision by Hackett seeing how he handled the coaching search. If it's not just about the highest monetary bid, I do expect Michigan to go back to Nike since they would bring the best package possible among the main players.

this game could be the turning point for Michigan being truly "back." I'd hate for you to miss it.
never mind all the politics and anti-hype around this game. I will be watching in person and will be supporting players and coaches who love this program as much as I do.
you're paying attention to stuff that really doesn't matter. you are making a mistake not watching, but you have 5 days to reconsider.
it will be my first game in person in two years and I look forward to a glorious and tradition filled day only a few other campuses can match. come on over and we can go to the game together

i wouldn't say 90%, but market reports show nike is still the dominant brand.
|3 years 7 weeks ago||You're contradicting youself.||
You're contradicting youself. First you say that shoe companies impact ingrecruting is false. now you say that it is a factor. No one is arguing that every recruit's decision is solely based on the shoe company.
Let's set aside the major football powers for now. Other college football programs without large budgets and product-only contracts with Nike still align themselves with Nike because of Nike's strong brand influence. in their recruiting pitch, they do play up the fact that they have nike prouducts. The major football powers will have other factors like facilities, education, tradition that should trump the logo on the shoe, but for some recruits, it's still a factor.
Another aspect that is not being discussed is that these shoe companies can help build the school brand. Oregon would not be where they are without Nike's help. Notre dame jumped to under armour with the expectation that UA will help market/build/maintain their brand. With a program like Michigan with so much tradition, we may not think much help is needed, but with so much competition, every little bit helps.
We want the University of Michigan football program to be sucessful, so for me the question isn't what logo do I want to wear for me, but what associations should Michigan make to bring the highest chance of success? Every detail matters.
|3 years 7 weeks ago||yes. in my line of work,||
in my line of work, i've spoken with college football players and in casual conversation they have said the brand did have an effect on their college choice.
georgia knows the brand has an impact and proudly displays the nike swoosh on their twitter page: https://twitter.com/footballuga
of course, not every recruit cares about the apparel/footwear brand, but to say it doesn't have an impact on recruiting is an uninformed statement.

Here are ar the stats from last year:
Looks like you have a decent shot.
My time was too long ago to be relevant, but do make sure that you have a plan for how to repay the out-of-state tuition costs, like getting a degree in readily employable major like someone else mentioned. You don't want to be in $100,000 in debt without a job, no matter how much you love Michigan. Don't forget it's an economic decision as well.
With your success in academics, you can also consider Michigan as a graduate school option. Yes, it delays gratification, but you can get assistanceships (teaching, research) that makes it much more afforable for out of state students. Grants, loans, and scholarships got me through undergrad at Michigan, but research assisantship paid for my grad school.
I'm not trying to talk you out of your dream of reaching Michigan, just trying to show that there are other routes.

nike and adi factories and labor practices are not that different - they use similar materials in similar labor markets at similiar cost. adi made promises that nike couldn't and wouldn't make (see section 8 of the sponsorship agreement now that it's been made public).
|3 years 10 weeks ago||Michigan's switch to Adidas||
Michigan's switch to Adidas in 2007 wasn't because of money as Nike was willing to match the dollar offer. Adi made concessions that Nike wouldn't, which tilted Michigan towards Adi. The sports marketing climate was also different back then which motivated Adi to take a major team from Nike, and Michigan was it. The climate will obviously be different when the current contract is up and this ND-UA deal will definitely have an influence.

"“We really need our apparel partner to embrace that concept and to treat us differently. It sounds selfish but it’s just about being a national brand. There’s one approach when you’re primarily a regional brand and a great regional brand, but we’re not. We’re a national brand and need a partner who can help fuel that.” - Notre Dame AD
This probably means that Michigan will go with Nike or Adi, with UA not being an option in 2016. Notre Dame wouldn't let Michigan one-up them again. The rivalry continues off the field...
