Denard. Unique athlete, superb human being and true Michigan Man. Carried us through some dark times, gave jaw-dropping performances and he did it all with class.

No offer for Jayru yet. Nor from Ohio. He was told he should come to Michigan's camp to see how he's developed. So I guess you'd sy they're keeping an eye on him/ I think it's also safe to say he isn't their top choice by any means.

Actually, I would think the most famous writer of minstrel show tunes was Stephen Foster, who was from Pittsburgh and only went to the south once, for his honeymoon in Louisiana. That means the writer of "My Old Kentucky Home" never spent any real time in Kentucky.
Foster is so controversil for his happy slave songs Greenfield Village in Dearborn, contrary to their normal practice, doesn't use his name to label his house.
Actually, if you are ever on the University of Pittsburgh's campus, just nect to the Carnegie Museum you will see an utterly shameful statue of Foster composing, or something, sitting in an elevated position over a bald, smiling, and, I kid you not, shoeless african american playing the banjo.

There are hot women everywhere. And we all know we'll be fine without him. None of that changes the fallacious reasoning of your original post. Painting Ole Miss as some kind of valiant underdog who seems to be doing things on the up and up is incredulous at best. So sure. They have hot women. I'm sure that reasonably overrides the pictures of money he tweeted. Nothing to see here, move along.

Peppers- It does make me feel nervous that he suddenly has a Rutgers crystal ball prediction on 247.

It is a "product," it's what we're paying for. And you CAN pay to go them all, you just have to pay for transit. I come from Pennsylvania to do just that. Is it worth it? For you, apparently not. Maybe that's because it's so expensive.
Parenthetically, some of us may equally be worried about the fact that the team has to wade through a killers row of a shcedule every other year rather than simply having a balanced schedule every year, which would probably be better for the team, aside from being more enjoyable to the fans.

Sure. Because we get them for free. So the quality of the product doesn't matter.

How does Brandon keep letting this happen? Does he get payoffs for setting up butcher seasons every other year? WTF?

Just becaue Rutgers is (going to be) in the Big Ten does not make it part of the Big Ten footprint for recruiting purposes. We do not have deep roots there, we have not had much success recruiting there. It is an eastern state, He is referring to the Midwest, which is where most of our recruiting traditionally happens, and where Hoke's predominant success has occurred. Getting top talent from Utah, Florida and New Jersey are firsts for Hoke here.

At minimum, I'd say there's nothing "cautious" about that optimism.

A good and worthy man, and a credit to his Alma Mater.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I see a distinction. OL||
I see a distinction. OL requires both numbers and time to cultivate, along with the highest rate of error in determining talent. QBs also generally need time to develope, and that situation has been admittedly mishandled, but the policy of taking no more than one a year, to make it obvious who the leader is, is a part of that.
We can, and have, taken more than one RB most years. RBs are also the position most likely to walk on to the field and have an immediate impact. It is logical to take one every year, but in our situation- lots of numbers, small incoming class, many talented recruits at other positions interested- I don't see it without the talent. We don't need bodies at RB, we need skill. Because if some combination of Rawls/Johnson/Norfleet/Hayes/Shallman can't carry some of the load for the Green and Smith, adding more comprable huys isn't going to help. That's simply the outlook for the immediate future.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Without arguing the logic of||
Without arguing the logic of your conclusion, you're looking three years into the future (after Green leaves) while assuming NO addition of RBs after this year. I don't think th lack of a RB in this class will lead to an apocalyptic "obly Smith, Johnson and Noefleet" scenario, especially with two very probable (and seemingly talented) RB options that could be called Michigan leans in the 2015 class.

Typically, they do not. Not anymore, that is, they used to. Their physical and academic standards rule out a great many players, especially linemen. They usually look at a class of players who fit into their triple option system, which allows them to get a different breed of athlete, often overlooked by other schools, who are interested in serving their country. That's why the Armed Forces Academies allrun the same system: Navy proved they could make hay with it in their unique situation.

Well, it's kind of relevant, since he was competing for the QB position of a team we're playing next year, and every year hereafter. Moreover, it means Hackenberg (aka PSU's Shane Morrison) is almost guaranteed not to get a redshirt now.
