i wouldn't say 90%, but market reports show nike is still the dominant brand.
|51 weeks 3 days 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.
|51 weeks 3 days 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.

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.

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.

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.

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...

I had a chance to chat with him last summer when his list included the likes of Stanford and Cal. Academics and career opportunities were the most important factor for him. He was talking about looking for internship opportunities that would lead to a job in the tech sector while in school. He walked the talk by selecting the most highly regarded academic institution in the B1G. I wonder if he was ever shown the Michigan North Campus if he visited Ann Arbor. Best wishes to a quality young man.

i wouldn't get so worked up about being "back." Michigan players have been quoted as being "back" while Hoke wouldn't.
If Michigan being back means having a punishing defense, it's still two recruiting classes away from having that type of talent and depth.
If Michigan being back means having a power offense, it's still two seasons away from implementing it with Gardner/Morris. (Borges did call the 2011 offense a "makeshift" offense.)
If Michigan being back means winning the Big Ten, it hasn't been back since 2004.
I say just win. Beat the teams that are inferior, put Sparty back into their place, beat rivals more often than not, and beat some national powers. Michigan is definitely moving in the right direction and it's fun again... and back to the norm again.

Who said this and in what year?
“The schedule is too tough for them to have a great year. In college football, you’ve got to have margin of error in there…You have to be able to have an off week.”
“Michigan has no chance to have a great football season, in my opinion. They play too many good teams that are as good or better than they are, and a lot of them away from home. That makes it more difficult. They can stumble and be a really fine football team, losing three games at least.”

Or they can be like Boise State by playing one or two tough games a year resulting in 10 or 11 win seasons. But unlike Boise State, they have a clear method of entry into the BCS bowls.

To an ND fan, the 2005 USC-ND game should be bigger. ND that year was a top-10 BCS bowl team and USC was the National Champion.

notre dame picked up the ball and fumbled. so ball can be advanced.
terrance robinson picked up the fumble and may have broken the plane of the endzone. if so, TD.
the ball came out when t-rob it the ground, so if he didn't break the plane, the ball would have been put just outside the goaline. the ground cannot cause a fumble.

Got married in ann arbor in 2001. Went to the big house for wedding pictures. Had the groomsmen line up as OL (I'm the center with the football). Bride is under center with 2 bridesmaids in the backfield in Pro formation and 2 split out left and right. My favorite picture of all time and always a conversation starter.

I won't be reporting about what happens in the athlete lounge since it's a safe haven for the athletes from the media and scouting services. (there sure are a lot of interviews happening outside the lounge.). What i will say that certain offensive linemen that Michigan fans may be interested in were spending a lot of time together.
|3 years 29 weeks ago||i attended the "weigh in"||
i attended the "weigh in" portion of "The Opening" today just for a part of it. This is where each athlete was introduced. For the part I attended, T-Rich, Ross, and Standifer were introduced. Only ~5% of all athletes wore hats of their school, but all three of these guys had michigan hats on. I shouted "Go Blue" after their intro to show them some Michigan love.
When they were dismissed, T-Rich and Ross came over to shake my hand and said that they appreciated the shout out. Magnuson shouted "nice shirt!" as he walked by (I wore my Michigan polo today).
I'm reporting this not to put the focus on me, rather the amount of Michigan love these guys have going into their senior season. I will attend more of this event and share what I can.

It is typically a concern when any working person switches jobs every couple years. If you look at Borges' resume, he has bounced from school to school. He's had successful offenses before, so why has he jumped around so much? I have no knowledge of his personality and interpersonal skills. But if he's lacking in that depatment, he just may not be head coach material. Being a head coach is so much more than X's and O's.

I grew up on the west coast where the Rose Bowl is a big deal. I saw Michigan in the Rose Bowl and admired the team and the uniforms. When it came time to go to college, I wanted to go to Michigan for the Engineering school and to watch Michigan football. I was accepted and I left home with 2 bags and not knowing anyone there. Michigan fan for life!

having been to a handful of football practice facilities, using these lifts is a common practice. the use of these devices are unsafe under certain weather conditions, whether or not it is used to record football practice video or other industrial uses.
ND used these lifts during heavy wind. they were improperly using a tool very likely against the use guidelines of the lifts.

to boost ratings for the documentary, jalen and ESPN highlighted racially sensitive terms like "Uncle Tom." jalen qualifies his opinion as how he felt back in 1991, but he does not come out explictily saying that he was wrong or he feels differently now. (not that i noticed in the film anyways.) why? if he did, there wouldn't be as big of a controversy and no one would be talking about it. we are all being manipulated to a talk about a controversy that didn't exist or cared about before the ESPN documentary.

it is a 8 year contract. 3 years done, 5 to go. a next contract needs to be signed in 4 years.
the OP has absolutely no idea what goes on beyond the scenes. i don't expect him to know, but it's not as simple as bidding for a logo on uniforms. like others have said, it ABSOLUTELY affects recruiting, so it does MATTER.

The irony is that your response is making this political, not mine. My post is apolitical because it's about a hat.

Sometimes it helps Michigan for rivals to win. This doesn't mean you root for the team, but for an outcome. Having said that, in this bowl season, wins by ND, MSU, and OSU have minimal benefit to UM, so I will continue to root against them. I do want the B1G to represent well (because it helps UM) so I'll be rooting for Iowa and Wiscy. Go Blue...always!

2nd chances are for those who are willing to change. none of us on this board have a clue about his willingness at this point. the coaches must determine if he will deserves a second chance. i tend to trust the coaching staff after leaving hagerup at home vs the OSU game after his team rule violation.
there may be different definitions of a "michigan man," but i would think most of us would agree that being a "michigan man" includes not skipping class and following team rules on and off the field.
