How about telling them ourselves in a week?

I could see them discouraging him from visiting Michigan, and they might have already done that. But I would be very surprised if, at this stage, they pulled his offer for doing so.
|4 days 35 min ago||I wouldn't. You think they're||
I wouldn't. You think they're going to tell the #1 RB in the country, who is committed to them, that his offer is gone if he takes another visit? That doesn't seem very smart.

Looks like he made the right decision to bolt.

Go to your niece's birthday party. This game will be a blowout and even if it's not somehow, there will be plenty of other ones. And a replay somewhere, I'm sure. You never know how long your family will be around.

The point wouldn't too avoid injury. It would be to avoid injury while you're not being compensated for risking injury. As far as hurting his draft stock goes, if you don't think he'd go just as high after sitting out a year you're crazy.

You expecting the worst is the one of the least surprising things I've ever heard.

Well would you rather have an early visit or no visit? Because it seems like that might have been the two options here.

Interesting that the staff would ask Landon Dickerson to reschedule his OV. Especially in light of the LTT news, that doesn't make a lot of sense.

Yet you still felt the need to comment.

Whenever Magnus says he's heard something, I always wonder exactly how connected he is. Like, do you know people within the program? Are you just going off of pay site info? In a couple of years, will you reveal yourself as actually being Lloyd Carr this entire time?
|4 weeks 5 days ago||When you spend an entire||
When you spend an entire thread complaining about recruiting, then hours later Beilein lands a top 70 player on every site that wasn't even considering M a couple of days ago, what do you expect? You're gonna get called out, and rightfully so.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Uh, what? Both big men are||
Uh, what? Both big men are top 100 recruits, Watson is due a rankings bump after a big summer, and we just landed the 247 composite 57th overall player. What is "highly touted in the slightest" to you?
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Great news! If you liked||
Great news! If you liked Winston, Simpson's game is similar. Hopefully people will chill out now about Beilein and recruiting.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Crazy. I thought we were down||
Crazy. I thought we were down to Lucas or Aiken for sure. M wasn't even listed in Simpson's final four YESTERDAY. What a turn around.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||he's not. But he was one of||
he's not. But he was one of the first I saw saying Winston was overrated and that he liked Lucas better, both of which I agreed with at the time. So I wanted to see what he thought of Simpson.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Uh, not really. He's 66th in||
Uh, not really. He's 66th in the 247 composite. 57th overall on Scout. That's not that far behind Winston.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||It seems like you've been on||
It seems like you've been on the record as liking Lucas more than Winston. I'm interested to hear what you think of Simpson's game in comparison.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Gotcha. Makes sense, it||
Gotcha. Makes sense, it seemes like most people thought Wisconsin was the landing spot until today. It would be great to not only land a player of Simpson's caliber for ourselves, but also to take him from someone else in the conference.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Is that your guess or are you||
Is that your guess or are you seeing that somewhere?
|4 weeks 6 days ago||I wouldn't. I think they're||
I wouldn't. I think they're both good prospects, and whichever one ended up at Michigan with Beilein would develop into the better player. If we land Simpson today, is he ranked high enough to become a great college PG? Or would you only not be bummed if it was someone ranked even higher?
|4 weeks 6 days ago||If we land Simpson today, is||
If we land Simpson today, is he ranked high enough to be able to become a great college PG?
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Anyone know what time he's||
Anyone know what time he's announcng today?
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Why do you think Winston||
Why do you think Winston would be a great college PG, but Lucas wouldn't? There are plenty of people who think Winston is overated. Again, he's not a can't miss, program-changing recruit. I'm assuming you don't know much about Lucas' or Winston's game. If Lucas gets a rankings bump (which is very possible), then could Beilein turn him into a great college PG?
Lucas, Aiken, or whoever else we get as the PG commit - they're all already ranked higher than Novak and Douglass ever were. Aiken, in fact, is already about where Burke was coming in. They're a completely different level of prospect than both of those guys. There's no reason to think that Lucas or Aiken can't be developed into better college PGs than Winston.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Is something wrong? We've got||
Is something wrong? We've got two top 100 big men, Watson is due a ratings bump after a fantastic summer, and Lucas and Aiken are both decently ragarding and said to be on the rise in rankings as well. And besides the rankings, if Beilein turns Ibi Watson and Lucas or whatever PG commit he gets into better players than Battle and Winston, which his track record suggests is very possible, isn't that good?
|4 weeks 6 days ago||I completely agree. Love||
I completely agree. Love Aiken as a prospect and would be very happy with Lucas as well. I've thought Winston was a bit overrated for a while, and have said as much.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||But does it matter that much?||
But does it matter that much? If Beilein lands Lucas (who I like more anyway) and develops him so that he ends up being a better player than Winston, isn't that good? People are acting like Winston is a program-altering level recruit and he's not. He's a good prospect, but so is Lucas. So is Aiken. So why are people freaking out about recruiting when we're gonna get a solid PG prospect who, almost surely, Beilein will develop into a good college player?
|4 weeks 6 days ago||He's not the only one.||
He's not the only one.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||I don't understand all the||
I don't understand all the angst. Personally, I've liked Lucas better than Winston for a long time, and have said as much here several times. But regardless, one of the best things about Beilein is that he doesn't need a 5 star PG to turn them into a good player. If he was replacing Winston with someone terrible in this class, that would be a problem. But he'll get a solid prospect, develop him into an excellent college player, and the beat will go on. As long as Beilein lands a good prospect, which I have all confidence he'll do, we'll be in very good shape.
