Sam Webb has been throwing out subtle hints on Wheatley for a while. On radio he said he can't confirm/deny anything. This morning he mentioned maybe there would be 'help' with Tyrone Wheatley Jr. soon and Sr. is interviewing today. This is definitely a read between the lines scenario with Sam who's said he talked to Sr. often. I think we find out he's hired pretty soon here & I think we very well could see a package deal with this son...Nice little double pickup if this happens!

So funny how Sparty "Doesn't care" about the #3 WR in the nation de-committing & saying he isn't even considering them anymore...But you know deep down inside it's eating them alive. I have a VERY vocal Sparty buddy, who talks so much sh!t when I email stuff like this that he doesn't care anyways...Then he'll CC me on emails he sends to his Sparty co-workers FREAKING out for like 20 emails...It's awesome. They can saw whatever they want, that was the best recruit they'll have in 10+ years.
Also, Valenti knows he can egg UM fans on & get them to call in. It's really the idiot part of our fanbase that fall for it. I bet he's a pretty normal & cool guy, just knows how to get ratings --> Slam UM & then yeehaw part of the fanbase calls in immediately sounding like an idiot.

Now they are the most obnoxious people on earth. Almost daily I get an email about State owning Michigan. That part is hard to swallow, but they have won 4 years in a row. The worst part is how they talk about their depth, red shirting all frosh cause their players are so good, their experience, Maxwell is Cousins crossed with Vick & Brady, etc. They are literally fucking delusional about their program. I'm pretty sure my one buddy, who is smart and wise with sports, thinks they have depth like Bama/ LSU. He's off his rocker.

These were days of newspaper & he was hyped nationally as hitting more homeruns for his career than anybody in history of HS baseball, top football recruit, etc.

|4 years 13 weeks ago||It does suck giving up guys||
It does suck giving up guys that have been with our teams for a while & are good people on top of being good players. But, keeping players just because of emotional ties gets you into the Pistons situation -- Washed up & overpaid team with no flexibility or high draft picks. I like Z, but Nash is a higher scoring version with shorter contract, younger, bigger & would fit in right away next to Pav.
|4 years 13 weeks ago||Completely agree on all of||
Completely agree on all of those guys. I love Bert, but to get Nash I'd do it without thinking. Franzen is injury prone & disappears for stretches every year. I know people will freak out, but I wouldn't hesitate to trade Zet for Nash - Younger, bigger replacement. Zet has a bad back (which NEVER goes away) & is much older in hockey years than his age because of all the deep post seasons he's been in. I really think he has slowed down a lot & Columbus would love to get someone of Zet's calibur locked up for years so he can't bolt immediately.
|4 years 13 weeks ago||Exactly - We view Cleary as a||
Exactly - We view Cleary as a 3rd/4th line role player. Columbus would view him as a Top 6 forward who otherwise wouldn't got to Columbus. Not saying Cleary alone would land Rick Nash, it would take him, Kindle, a pick, another Cleary type role player & probably 2 young players. I want to see the Wings rid some of their expensive veteran role players & infuse youngsters into the lineup. It would help the salary cap & your Drew Millers are more productive & healthy than Cleary. Like Hudler, he had a good year scoring goals but is such a one dimensional player. His +/- isn't great, all he plays on is the power play & with some really good Top 6 forwards that get most of the attention from the opposing players defense. I think the Wings have some players who hold value, but we would be better suited trading these types for a Nash & letting the Nyquists fill the 3rd/4th line. It's probably a pipe dream, but would love Nash. Wouldn't mind Bobby Ryan either.
|4 years 13 weeks ago||From everything I read, it||
From everything I read, it sounds like the Wings don't like their chances with Parise (sounds like Pitt is his leader) & sounds like we lead for Suter. Nash's contract has a high cap hit, but I love him as a player. Dude is big & so skilled, something we could really use. I'd like to see us ship some players that are a little older & production slipping (Cleary, etc - He's a good player, but not worth $3mil & injury prone - Columbus can use players like him) so some younger guys can break the lineup who are also cheaper. Also wouldn't mind seeing Kindl thrown in, guy really hasn't shown me much at all & would like to see Brendan Smith in lineup permanently. Would be fired up to get Suter & Nash/Parise.
Sounds like Suter/Parise are making decision today, so we'll know soon.
|4 years 13 weeks ago||Love the pick. Drummond is a||
Love the pick. Drummond is a perfect compliment to Monroe. Monroe is very skilled, but lacks athleticism big time. Drummond can rebound, block shots, play helpside D & get garbage points. He doesn't need a post game really because Monroe gives us that. Drummond is athletic enough to run the pick & roll, plus has athleticism to finish at the rim that Monroe can struggle with at times. At #9, this was a no-brainer IMHO.

It's called sarcasm. And I'm not going to apologize because I don't follow everything the coaching staff does like a little puppy just because I'm a fan. They have done a great job recruiting, but this still boggles my mind. A long snapper being a HUGE asset? That is a bit of an overstatement I would say. I saw somewhere they might play 13 plays at most & this is a position that is routinely handled by walk-ons without any hiccups. If this kid is such a beast & obviously jumped on this offer within 3 seconds of receiving it...Why not wait until later in the recruiting cycle when actual IMPACT players situations have played out & then offering him?? Pretty sure if he were walking on or offered by a lesser B10 program (or any program for that matter) he would still jump on a UM offer.
The kid sounds like he's very good at what he does. Doesn't mean I have to be thrilled about it & can't joke that this is about as exciting as watching the Pistons play. Dude is a long snapper, pretty sure he wasn't expecting an ESPN CFB Live special to show his long snapping delivery technique & times. He's probably smiling ear to ear that he's a long snapper & just got a full ride to The University of Michigan fer god sakes no matter what people are saying --- I'd be walking around saying "I'm Scott Sypniewski biatch - Get on deez nutz."

Rating Drop: The kid played on an all-star team that looked like an And 1 mixed tape. Big fundamental players get lost in these type of games because the play is guard dominated. His offer sheet should speak to how good he is. Not all bad, the kid isn't taking it hard & less pressure (as crazy as that sounds with our expectations) on him. He's going to bring some much needed grit, size & rebounding to our team. VERY excited about him & GRIII, who I think is going to be really good.

I would be beyond shocked if McGary & Robinson aren't starting almost right away. Robinson has atheliticism that our lineup lacks (along with length/size) & McGary's size, rebounding and ability in the pick & roll game will get him on the court quick.

Someone on ESPN had an interesting take on this situation - They compared it to EJ Levenberry. FSU secretly seen as leader, flirted with UM, really liked UM, parents like UM & academics. But in the end, staying in ACC & situation was better at FSU. I do get the same feeling on this situation - I think Ty is flirting with the idea of USC, obviously likes them, but I think he'll end up Blue in the end. Can't remember where I saw this (I think something TomVH posted), but Ty has some quotes about how some coaches tell you what you want to hear, which he sees through & other coaches are honest. This was in middle of his tired of recruiting talk.
I think he goes to USC, hunkers down and makes a decision...and he ends up with Wings on helmet!

You don't think with "Certainty" that Burke would help the team next year!?!? Great argument, how could a player that pundits were stating was in the top 7 freshman in the nation help our team without 1 viable option to handle the ball. You guys are in happy land if you think walk-ons & whitey whitertons who had 4 years of high school ball, years on a high profile AAU team & an extra year in prep school that plays a number of high profile recruits but still have no offers are going to step in and we won't miss a beat.
The world isn't over, but anybody that says Burke leaving won't hurt UM hoops with certainty is a fool. Without him this year they don't win the B10 Ship. This kid was handling the ball and not getting a break every game with Stu, Akune & Brundidge available. Now there is just Akune how didn't see the floor when Burke could barely breath from playing so many minutes.
With Burke, could be a special team. They're not going to tank or anything, just a major major hit.

Everyone needs to relax about Mcgary. His HS team was an all star team that looks like an And 1 mixed tape. These teams are dominated by guard play where big men rarely touch the ball. Same thing with these all star games. It's run and gun guard play. He might not be Nerlens Noel(sp?) type athlete, but is very skilled and relentless energy player. Much rather have this out of a bi man than raw talent and an attitude. GR3 is a beat and only getting better. I see both of these kids starting next year. Too good to keep off the floor.

He looks to be a great athlete, I'm sure he'll be playing D-1 football.

Martin who was their return man and big play guy, best OL, Nichol & 2 back up TE's. Also lost Edwin Baker, 1st round impact DT & leading tackler (S). This QB has never played a down of meaningful football. Sorry for the rant, that's WAY too much to lose from any team unless your Bama, LSU, UT, FSU, UGA, UF, USC...They're also getting cleveland steamered in recruiting; so there goes the talent pool that helped them win.

hope this kid can come in and give us a boost at PR immediately. Sounds like he's compact, shifty and dynamic with ball in hand...Which we've lacked in return game for a while.

Congrats young man...GO BLUE!

The coaches did a good job with this class and it's a top 10 class. But can't hide that I'm disappointed how this is finishing up. We're really getting blanked by our top targets. I would WR use to Urb pulling classes like this. His name is huge and ohio has cache with recruits from recent success. I would expect Ohio to have a big 2013 class. 2013 is where well really see how UM can battle them head to head. it's obvious they're watching who we offer and gong after them. Should be interesting to watch.

Or, the kid could just want to keep things 50/50 to the public since he has an announcement party planned by his twin sister...So it's a bit more fun and suspenseful than leaking where he's going just before. It's dramatic, but he deserves it and I'm sure the process hasn't been all fun for him. I still feel positive about the announcement...but then again, I don't know shit! Haha. Seems like an unbelievable kid and would represent the Maize n Blue tremendously
|4 years 38 weeks ago||He looked good early in the||
He looked good early in the game. Was flying all over the place, really reading plays. Kid looks athletic, already built solid with room to get bigger. These game are tough to gauge LB's, OL. It's like a pickup basketball game, the skill players shine because there's minimal defensive schemes. The OL will look bad too because they had no time to get schemes down. The DB's, WR, RB's, DE's always shine in this games because they just ball without being schemed for.
I would put more into how the coaches RAVED about him the entire week in all aspects, he was named a starter & Captain. I think this kid is going to be very good in the future & will contribute as a Frosh.
|4 years 38 weeks ago||There is no way msu can be as||
There is no way msu can be as good next year as they were this year.
Offense: They lose their QB who is also the team leader and most successful QB in the history of their program. Don't underestimate this loss, the backup has 51 career passes against the likes of Youngstown State type teams. Then throw in their all time leading WR in Cunningham, their big play WR/Return man in Martin, top 3/4 TE's in Celek, Nichol, Linthicum who get used a lot, their FB and their top OL in Joel Foreman. That is a TON to replace on offense alone. They have their RB's and most OL in tact, but, the challenged passing game will allow teams to force them away from the run (see Denard in msu, sugar bowl for how that works).
Defense: They lose Worthy, who is a 1-3rd round pick in NFL - This loss will not be made up by anybody, because this kid is good. This will be much like us losing Martin/Van Bergen = No Bueno. Also lose NT Kevin Pickelman who had more sacks than Tom Gholston pre bowl game. They also lose Trenton Robinson, their starting safety who had 70 tackles (imagine us losing Kovacs, yeah, not good). They will have a lot of talent returning on a good defense, but lose their entire middle like we do & their leading tackler/int guy in secondary. This has to set back the defense at least a little bit.
I know this information because I have a plethora of A-Hole sparty grad friends who remind me daily (no exaggeration) that they've won 4 years in a row along with a picture of sparty holding the Bunyan Trophy. They really think they're going to have 11 wins, win the B10, go to Rose Bowl & beat UM for 5th straight year. Now, I think a lot of that is getting the bragging out while they have it because they know things won't be like they have...It's still brutal and making me have an unhealthy hatred for everything green.

Bottomline is he has been AWFUL all season. Wile should keep that job. How many times this year could we have pinned the other team deep in their zone & they end up on the 20-35 yard line instead because of a 20-30 yard punt.
I don't know what's up with this kid, but he needs to get his head on straight from the sounds of things.

I was thinking the same thing...They're more likely to play Central or Wastern in a bowl than ever seeing UM or sparty.

Reading that document was interesting. ESPN brings (non-lawyer) some valid points and really seems to be pointing out osu's defense for everything of 6 yr old child saying "Not it." I would guarantee there are some juicy details in those emails or ESPN wouldn't be investing the resources they are into this. I hope they win & this opens up more ugliness for osu.
In reference to the above post about protecting student's privacy; that's actually addressed in these documents & ESPN brings up a great defense. They're not asking for the students grades, medical records, etc. They're asking for 3rd party emails from the athletic department regarding a student that has nothing to do with their education. Protecting truly private matters is important, which is what FERPA intends to do. But, I think this is not about the 'educational' records as it is athletic.
It almost seems ESPN is getting pissed off by osu's arrogance in not even responding to their challenges. I bet behind the scenes osu is going "oh fck, oh fck, court please help us on this."
I just hope osu gets bent over like they should...My soon to be brother in-law is getting so annoying with the arrogance. osu fans literally think they're going to win 10 straight years again because of meyer & he also believes they're going to run a pro style offense because of what urbie told dunn ( i laughed & said i hope b. dunn enjoys blocking for braxton).

Seems like a great kid and very driven. Also, concerned about academics & going the extra mile to make sure they're in line with after school tutoring. If there was a perfect mold of a Michigan Man, this type of kid is it. Same goes for Bolden and Josh Garnett.

My personal opinion, after the switch this weekend; things are not looking good for us. From the ESPN premium info, it sounds like the kid is truly confused and Meyer is whispering sweet nothings in his ear that he wants to believe...

Frustrating game to watch. Foul trouble, poor shot selection, leaving their shooters wide open for 3's all night and THJ getting 5 points on the road isn't a recipe for success.
I'm not jumping off a bridge after this loss or anything. But, there are some holes in this team (interior D) and team streakiness shooting that scare me a bit. I think this is one of those teams that could beat anybody in the nation or lose a stinker of a game to a lower division team.
On a positive note - I LOVE what I've seen of Trey Burke so far. Kid has great court demeanor and confidence for a young point guard.

You know this man commanded respect when his moment of silence prior to the #1 vs #2 matchup even got the creatures of osu to shut up and pay their respects.

Wherever he ends up, gotta root for this kid to succeed. We all make mistakes, hopefully, he learns and grows from them. A little bit of humble pie probably is going a long way for him too.
It'd be a cool story if he made it into a Winged helmet and I have a feeling he would be an instant crowd favorite.

After talking about how he likes to be around boys, he finally said no like 30 seconds later. If wrongfully accussed of an act of this nature, you think someone would scream "NO, I'M NOT ATTRACTED TO BOYS."
This guy said 3 words and the creepiness I got from him made me uncomfortable. I REALLY hope our justice system does not fail and this guy gets thrown into a maximum security prison so he gets what he's done to these poor kids times 100.
I also think there's a lot more to this than we know and it could get very ugly. BTW, PSU has never been charged with a violation...Hmmm, if they're willing to harbor & enable (maybe even cover up) a serial child rapist for 17 years; I'm pretty sure JoePa wouldn't find paying a player very offensive.

FYI...TomVH (I'm ESPN Insider) still maintains that Dunn is trying to be an EE. He has one class he has to make up in order to do so and is working on it. TomVH has also talked to Brionte and his Dad recently about recruiting....To say the least, they're not thrilled with how osu looks. The Dunn's were at the sparty game in c-bus, were disgusted and asked TomVH when the next Michigan home game was immediately following the game for a possible visit.
Sorry if this has been repeated in other threads, but I constantly see that there's no way he's an EE which per TomVH isn't the case.

Don't get me wrong, Rafalski had a nice career and I've heard he's a great guy which most hockey players are. It doesn't mean I have to be a fan of him just because he's a Red Wing. I wanted him to do well, he was just extremely soft which I'm not a fan of.

Young is having a bad year...But still batting 40 points higher than Fagglio! I'd rather have Demtri Young playing than Mags, he is gosh damn awful on the field and at the plate. My 83 yr old grandmother has more pop at the plate than him. Delmon is also 12 years younger than fagpipes.
I have an unhealthy hatred for mags, hudler, rip hamilton and rafalski...1 down

Gotta give RR a little credit for creating this event. What a great thing to have a laid back atmosphere catered towards the current UM family, the recruits and their families. Not to mention, you got all these kids in the Big House & practice facilities. Kudos to Hoke for recognizing a good thing and continuing it.
My totally worthless and lack of evidence gut feeling: Pipkins commits this week while in Michigan, Danny O'Brien commits, and Dunn goes Blue eventually.
I think the 2013 class is going to be a monster too. Depending how the on the field product is this year (which I think will be solid with some hiccups for sure), that class could be big time with Sugar Shane leading the charge & bringing kids on board with him.

Karsch is always very knowledgeable about things related to UM, especially football. He is the voice of MIchigan Insider and considering how intertwined osu/UM are thru the rivalry, it wouldn't surprise me one bit if UM people have heard some of these rumos. Not only this, I'm sure he's got some college football contacts that have contacts.
Valenti mentioned a friend who covers CFB, travels the nation doing this. His friend made a comment that he's seen some 'Stuff' on various campuses, but what he saw at osu was far beyond out of control...
|5 years 18 weeks ago||Reading this makes me think||
Reading this makes me think we have a pretty good shot. He also sounds like a pretty sharp kid. I got the impression that he is very interested in attending school away from home. If we can put of 8-9 wins this year, the class could be stupid good.
Holy crap does he look like his Dad!
|5 years 18 weeks ago||Yes, I do realize how much it||
Yes, I do realize how much it would take to pry Drew Doughty from the Kings. Do you realize that if Rafalski retires that gives us $6mill in monoply money we never thought we'd have. Losing Draper, Salei, Modano, Osgood releives $5.2 mill from the books, all of which are role players who can easily be replaced with your Eaves, Millers, Mursaks, Kindl, etc.
Do you realize Drew Doughty is 21 yrs old and already been a Norris Trophy finalist? So yes, I would pay him $7.5 million per season without hesitation.
Look the teams left in the playoffs. Boston has big name/price players in Chara, Horton, Lucic (maybe not top dollar yet, but will get paid soon), Bergeron, Kaberle, et. Vancouver has big price tag players in Luongo - $10mil, Sedins, $6.1 mil each, Kessler - $5 mil, Hamhuis - $5 mil & slew of players at $3mil to $4mil. Chicago has Keith, Seabrook, Kane, Hossa, Toews, all paid top dollar.
Yes, I do know hockey & how things work. Superstars make a difference, the real success is unearthing role players that make the difference, as we have with Cleary, Helm, Holmer, etc. We need some more top end talent no matter what anybody says, it's up to Holland to round out the roster from there.
|5 years 18 weeks ago||PLEASE LORD, TELL ME THIS IS||
PLEASE LORD, TELL ME THIS IS TRUE!!
The guy has had a good career, but I cannot take watching his dancing on ice routine anymore. He's just too small, coupled with the injuries he's not willing to take any contact and coughs up the puck WAY too much. Plus, he's making $6 million per year.
I'm sure some crazy downriver Wing fan will downvote me for saying anything about dem der Red Wings...But this guy has become a liability on the ice & his salary is killing us.
I'd go after Weber, Drew Doughty (RFA), whatever big name D man is out there. Who cares about the picks, they're all going to be in the 20's and we haven't picked up anyone in this range that has done jack shit in years. Just like the Pistons, NBA draftees who are instant contributors are picks 1-5 max. NHL you can probably expand up to picks 10-15 depending on the depth of the draft. The rest being a crapshoot to make it in the league. Let's face it, we won't be picking that high anytime soon.
Sorry about the rant, I'm sure he's a good guy & had a good career. Him coupled with Happy Hudler are two players I loathe and this news seriously gave me wood (in a strictly heterosexual, I love sports, boobs, and beer type of way). Now, just tell me Happy Hudler was traded for a bag of pucks and I might get Frank the Tank shitbombed and go streaking!

I fucking love this. My boring workdays consist of seeing our new daily recruit, listening to msu dipshit excuses & hearing just another nail in the osu coffin. This weather has been absolute shit, but things have been good!
Now to my point, a very good friend of mine has a prominent businessman for a father who happens to be located in downtown Columbus. Unique situation, this guy grew up in Ohio, entire family are osu slappies, went to college/grad school in MI, lived here and family lives here year round....Has season tix to UM & OSU, so very weird dynamic, but deep down is an Ohioan. This guy is good friend with Gordon Gee, lots of prominant osu boosters, has suite in Horseshoe where the governor sometimes sits for games (she was there for UM/osu #1 vs #2 game, I was in there hammered with bright yellow UM shirt talking junk to student section right below suite. My buddy kindly told me to cool it since the governor was sitting next to me..haha).........Anyhoo, I send my buddy the weekly osu scandal, he forwards to his Dad to taunt him. His Dad as recent as this week responded, "I'm glad the UM fans have something to cheer about, but nothing is going to happen when said and done."
This is a guy who is a big deal, has lunch with President Obama, crap like that & a lawyer by trade (ended up being an executive). He is with so many other people in Ohio that nothing is going to happen. This partly scares me because the guy has connections I could only dream of & lives right in Columbus. But also makes me think people in Ohio are just blind to the fact osu has cheated to get where they're at.

Car salesman are 100% commission...They'd be taking money out of their pocket by giving away that many vehicles under value. Plus, the dealership my Dad worked for absolutely raped people on used cars because a good majority were people who couldn't qualify for a lease & didn't have a choice but to overpay if they want a car.
I'm guessing this 'missing' money was made up somewhere....A used car salesman living in a $500k home seems a bit fishy to me.
|5 years 20 weeks ago||There is no way that||
There is no way that something fishy isn't going on with these cars. I'm sorry, but I come from a middle class family and a wealthy city in Oakland county, I couldn't get a tin can Ford Ranger in college and actually had a job (I understand athletes get 'fronted' stuff based on potential, but the market value issue still comes up).
Family members wouldn't be coming from other states to buy cars at this specific dealership for market value...Not going to happen...It just happens that they're all athletes parents.
Also, my Dad was a cars salesman and they wouldn't let people test drive cars by themselves if they stayed within 1 block of the dealership. How in the hell can an 18 yr from a not so great financial background get a 3-4 day 'test drive' of a $60k Yukon Denali...Riiiiight.
If they REALLY dig deep into this, shady shit is going on.

Dunn did say "It was better than I expected," with Tom stating he's holding everything very close to the vest. I believe this is a good sign for Michigan, that and the fact he visited AA while being committed to osu for 8 months. Very positive, with the continual reports of free cars, lies upon lies, tressell making whoopie with goats, etc...I think our chances are only going to get better.
I have a feeling Burbidge will want to join his boys too. Just another in-state mushroom stamp for dicktonio...
|5 years 21 weeks ago||Great interview, thanks Tom.||
Great interview, thanks Tom. I enjoyed the information on what could be a big time safety that I feel we need immensely. Something else stood out, Ricky came off as very classy individual. You can tell there is a burning love for UM deep inside him, but he is being objective with his players so they can make the decision for themselves. This part really stood out:
"Look, Michigan's not for everbody. The average guy can't go to Michigan. Can these two be Michigan guys, heck yeah. But I don't want to push them there because it's not my choice. If they ask me I would tell them my experience at Michigan. I know just seeing Coach Hoke I think Michigan is going to be an awesome place. Jarrod will be able to see that. He'll be able to look around and see that. None of these other schools are slouches either, they bring a lot to the table. I think Michigan is a special place, but they need to figure it out for themselves."
I don't know why, but after reading this I think we have a good chance of landing this kid. Especially considering Mattison hasn't even been there in person yet...Which usually seals most deals!

Excellent news...I'm hoping to hear some good things from this weekend. Dunn is obviously the big fish, but DE/WR combo from FHH would be very nice as well...Especially considering they're both very talented kids. Makes it much, much sweeter that they grew up sparty fans & are from FHH.

Man, I would LOVE to see him back for 1 more year which I think could have been a big benefit to improving his game. A lot of this year's success was because of D-Mo, hopefully Burke or Brundidge can step up as Frosh.

I have positive feeling about Pike. He's good friends with a UM player (TE Barnett), been up here already and had good things to say about coaches/facilities/tradition, etc. This would be a huge get and like Magnus said, he would help bring other blue chip prospects with him as the figure head of our class.

Let alone an 18yr old from a modest background. Hell, I tried looking at a 2 seater Ford Ranger in college at 20 & they laughed when I said I was a college student, I come from a nice city in Oakland county too where someone my age could very well have tons of Mommy/Daddy money.
The corruption is neck deep down in Columbus....It's just starting to come out. Their running back Pittman from 2001 team said this stuff has been going on sinced he was there.

Great read and thanks for sharing. I was 12 years old watching with my buddy who was on my basketball team & also a rapid UM fan. It seemed every game they played came down to the wire, but this is still one game where I still get angry/sad every time I see it. I remember being so upset I couldn't get words out, I was really upset about it for over a week (at 12, that's like 3-4 years).
This documentary was so awesome to watch, I had goosebumps the entire time and was that excited 12 yr old on the edge of the couch. My girlfriend could tell something was different about how much I was into this and actually left me alone to watch. Just wild how much I remember about each of these games, each pair of shoes, and the swagger they brought to an otherwise pretty vanilla (no pun intended!) college basketball landscape at that time.
Great reliving these great memories. Just 3-4 months prior my Dad took me to my 1st UM football game, which happened to be a buttwooping at the expense of OSU & a certain Heisman pose game!
I will always love this team & remember them forever.

As a human, you have to think a little bit "Man, that is pretty sweet he's saying fuk you to everybody and doing it his way...Which isn't working out too bad for him." Now, he might be dead soon from an OD - But he lived a lot more years than most his age and has seen/done shit desk jockeys like me can't even dream of!

I'll tell you, the positive buzz with all these top recruits is very promising. I think we're going to have a good class. If the team can get into the 8-9 win range, I think we could really put something special together with all the positive buzz with Hoke/Mattison going on.

Look out for Stanford: Tom and I read somewhere else that Stanford is probably his #1 right now.

I think this kid will take his time, look at academics and atmosphere/diversity. If this indeed happens, UM will be near the top.
EDIT: After watching this kids film, I am beyond impressed & would like him as much as Wormley. Him hunting down braxton miller multiple times sealed the deal. 6'4 210lbs and just got into the weight room with explosiveness means he could get huge & still be freakishly athletic.

I wonder if this is Hoke going into Ohio and making a statement to osu that "I'm not scared of you, not going to back down and everything between us will be a fight." He seems like the type that's not scared of a challenge, grew up in Ohio and realizes how fertile this area is to recruit.
I like saying F@#$ you Tressel, I'm coming after this guy & if you aren't all over him I'm going to take him from you.
Or this simply could be making a name for himself with these programs. By doing this he is putting his name out there with the players and coaches which only helps future recruiting.

This is sad, the guy is my favorite player and an immense talent. This is NOT good and a horrible way to start the season. It was ballsy taking a swig of scotch in a cops face after being confronted and that makes part of me laugh inside...But not good in the big picture
|5 years 32 weeks ago||That's so funny. My friend||
That's so funny. My friend had an adjustable hoop we would lower and just go out and rag on it! I was always Jalen because I was the guard on our team. I watched that entire highlight at work today and it got me fired up...Literally makes me want to watch every game I can find on Youtube.
So funny how people from all walks of life and different parts of the country can grow up so similar...Even being moved by the same things going on at that time. I think you hit in on the head about the Fab 5 creating a bigger interest in Michigan. I grew up watching Bo with my Dad and running outside singing to fight song after touchdowns, loving UM football...But the Fab 5 created rapid love for UM that hasn't changed...
|5 years 32 weeks ago||Man, I don't know. Their star||
Man, I don't know. Their star QB blatantly just took $180k to play for them, would paying for a paper be that outrageous? I will say that people or players can definitely be dumb enough to request this online for everybody to see...Especially players since they have a sense of invincibility.
The SEC is so fukin crooked it makes me sick. Urban Meyer (who I think is crooked as well) came out & said it. If a coach without the highest moral standards is saying the NCAA world is F'ed up and coaches are slimeballs...How bad must it be!?!?
What pisses me off even more is osu is basically SEC North & almost makes it impossible to compete with them on a level playing field when they're cheating their asses off (I know some will say they just sold gold pants, got free tats, nothing big proven, etc...But c'mon, is there any doubt that things are quite complient at that university).
|5 years 32 weeks ago||Fab 5 was greatest team to||
Fab 5 was greatest team to watch ever. They were influential in so many ways. I was in middle school when they were at UM, watched EVERY game with my buddies, wore black socks, went outside and played b-ball in the cold/snow after every game (half time too).
I loved the swagger they had...Young, cocky, athletic and just good. Looking at this: They couldn't really shoot from the outside, basically played pickup offense, gambled, threw crazy passes, etc...But were just so damn talented and hungry to win they found a way. C-Webb was a beast and those hands ate up everything. Jalen was just the man, everybody followed him. That famous UK 'Press' didn't rattle Jalen at all, he looked relaxed breaking that thing time after time.
Makes me miss having a relivant UM hoops team...Hopefully our young team is on the rise and updgraded facilities will help.
Fab 5 were the shit...Can't wait until they can honor all these guys together whether they took money or not....GO BLUE
|5 years 32 weeks ago||Mr. Diamond...||
GO BLUE, we need you. Having Bryant in his ear should really help....especially if he already holds us in such high regard.
Great job on the updates...These are one of the only things keeping my sanity through these slow workdays
|5 years 32 weeks ago||This kid's running style is||
This kid's running style is just effortless. He seems to be gliding & just flying by people. I definitely wouldn't mind having a gamebreaker like this wearing the winged helmet next year.
|5 years 33 weeks ago||WOW...Not too often you see a||
WOW...Not too often you see a kid in his junior year at his size move like that. He's athletic, got a rocket for an arm, tough nosed (pile drive blocking 3 guys in 1 play), plays LB and only going to get better.
After seeing this....I WANT THIS KID IN A WINGED HELMET GOSH DAMN IT!!!!
|5 years 33 weeks ago||I feel bad for those poor||
I feel bad for those poor children he's playing against...They might not even have pubes yet and he's doing JR Rider thru the leg dunks already with a mustache!
Those were some pretty nice dunks he was throwing down though...
|5 years 33 weeks ago||Good for these two.||
Good for these two. Richardson looks to be on the smaller, but he looked very quick/fast and seems to have great ball skills. RJS seems to have a great frame & athleticism to be a good player at the next level.
Congrats to both of these young men and I hope to see them both wearing a winged helmet in the future!
|5 years 33 weeks ago||I like the way this||
I like the way this sounds...I'm going to guess C. Wormley
That Jaleel Johnson is a beast
|5 years 33 weeks ago||1st sentence I agree with.||
1st sentence I agree with. But the 2nd sentence I do not at all. I'm 31 & remember watching UM games when I was 6 years old running outside singing the fight song after every TD. There's nothing I like more than watching Meeeeeeichigan Football to this day!
|5 years 33 weeks ago||I loved seeing him hunt||
I loved seeing him hunt Braxton Miller down multiple times! Closing speed was very impressive.
Unless he wants a doctorate in criminal activity I suggest he come to a real school...Go Blue!
I am really excited about the talent in the midwest for 2012. With Hoke/Mattison there to reel these DL recruits I have a good feeling about next year's class. This kid, Wormly, Dan O'brien, his boy Godin, Ross, Royce-Jenkins, Richardson, Diamond would be a pretty damn good start...Let's get it and fuck that school down south!
|5 years 34 weeks ago||Chuck is my favorite Wolverine of all time||
the guy is just a winner....National Championship, Heisman, Defensive MVP & now Super Bowl Champion.
|5 years 34 weeks ago||Man, I really wanted Corwin||
Man, I really wanted Corwin Brown as our DB coach. Great recruiter, has been a D-Coordinator (ND) and has most recently worked on Belichik's staff.
I like Mattison, Hoke so far. But holy shit, having a staff comprised of old bald white men isn't going to help recruiting.
If this in fact happened, bad move. I also think it's classless if they didn't call him back.
|5 years 34 weeks ago||I think we get 5 of 6||
Get: Willingham - Clark - Rawls - Barnett - Cooper (shakiest, us or Iowa)
Lose: It pains me to say this, but I think Fisher goes to Oregon
Solid finish, if we miss out on both Cooper and Fisher I will be mildly disappointed. Maybe there's a signing day surprise that we haven't heard about...
If we miss out on a few, the positive thing is the midwest is loaded next year and we can bank some scholarships for the 12 class.
|5 years 35 weeks ago||Sounds like a level headed||
Sounds like a level headed kid who isn't going to give away much when he talks. I like the approach the coaches are using on these recruiting visits = being real. If kids don't want to come here for that, then things probably won't work out because they're looking for something more than football & a good education (see OSU/Denali/Tat).
Mr. Coop - Go Blue, you won't regret it!
|5 years 35 weeks ago||Nothing wrong with accountability||
I like the strike policy. It makes the players accountable & brings in their teammates if they're not.
Keep up the good work Hoke...I like everything you're doing so far!
|5 years 35 weeks ago||Great pickup!||
Seems like a smart kid, a lot of potential & a position of need...Good start to the weekend, let's keep it going & close these other 5 targets!!
|5 years 35 weeks ago||HUGE gettting DCoop on campus||
HUGE gettting DCoop on campus as well as Barnett. I would really like to see both of these kids commit this weekend. Cooper is coming with his Mom on their own dime - In the sales world that's called a buying sign and they need to be closed immediately! Get em on campus and UM is hard to say no too.
DCoop & CBarnett....C'mon down!
|5 years 35 weeks ago||I think BWC will be their pet||
I think BWC will be their pet project since Mattison & Hoke both specialize in DLine...He's either going to be a beast or run out of town....
|5 years 35 weeks ago||G Mat!||
Wow, sure seems like if he gets in front of a kid he has their attention quick. This is huge, I think our chances just increased 70% by getting him on campus. He's obviously interested in UM & the pitch GMat thru at him, get him on campus & reel him in!
Finish Strong....GO BLUE
|5 years 35 weeks ago||I'm curious on this too. I||
I'm curious on this too. I read that Hoke will be in Texas today paying visits, hopefully this kid is one of his stops!
|5 years 35 weeks ago||Close this kid....Need a DT||
Close this kid....Need a DT in this class
DCoop - GO BLUE!
|5 years 35 weeks ago||G-Mat - All I have to say:||
Sorry, I couldn't help it!
But seriously - We need this kid with McClure out of the picture.
|5 years 35 weeks ago||LB?||
|5 years 35 weeks ago||He's been on the FSU payroll||
He's been on the FSU payroll for a while now...
|5 years 35 weeks ago||Trust me, after watching||
Trust me, after watching these last 3 years I don't mind stockpiling defensive players. The part that I'm a little curious about, with some big names in the mix and only a couple spots left - Does this say we don't really have a chance with McClure, Fisher, Raven, Bellomy, Cooper, Brandon Alexander, Chris Barnett, etc...
Just a bit worried about the offensive neglect. We saw that neglect to one side of the ball can have ill effects. I think our O is good for this year and probably the next as is. Just like to see spots filled in for the future I guess instead of future holes like our DT situation behind Mike Martin (Dear BWC - Get your shit together please).
I guess I'll just subscribe to defense wins championships...GO BLUE
|5 years 35 weeks ago||I with you DG - Offer this||
I with you DG - Offer this kid, looks like he's a ball hawk and fast. Also like how he wasn't afraid to stick his nose into ball carriers. Keep the CT pipeline going, this kid already is offered by some high profile southern teams and the LB is supposed to be good as well. I can tell you from watching the past 3 years, DB/LB are always positions of need. If they only had some DT's to offer......
|5 years 36 weeks ago||I'm excited most about||
I'm excited most about McClure & Willingham...LOVE to see them go Blue!
|5 years 36 weeks ago||Haha...Look at this pudgy||
Haha...Look at this pudgy little fuck...This gave me an flashback to the early 90's of our middle school center named Brooks that had a lischp like Coach Lou Holtzssssssssssssssssh
|5 years 36 weeks ago||USC...I think they have like||
USC...I think they have like 9 early enrollees, which I believe can be counted towards last years scholarships #'s. The scholarship loss will probably start hurting them next year.
|5 years 36 weeks ago||Zettel||
I read that his HS coach was pushing him away from UM because of that god awful scheme. Who the fuk would want to get triple teamed on every play as a NT/DE in the 3-3-5??
I'm sure Anthony did learn a lot in his 2 hours with JoePa...Most notably how to change a diaper and what old balls look like. JoePa is fucking delusional at this stage, I can't imagine him relating to 18 yrs olds at all.
|5 years 36 weeks ago||*Freestyle*||
By the time we got to the freestyle kids would be committing on spot...Now do the butterfly!
|5 years 36 weeks ago||WOW||
What I like is him chasing little skill players 40 yds+ down field and actually catching them...Plus beasting O-lineman...Would love to see this kid Go Blue and watch what happens when Hoke/Mattison coach him up since DL happens to be both their expertise. Kid will be a monster once in a real S&C program!
|5 years 36 weeks ago||Awesome....||
that is all
|5 years 36 weeks ago||Don't want to be a downer,||
Don't want to be a downer, maybe this kid is a sleeper & I sure as hell hope he is. But, we don't have a ton of slots for this class & to burn them on a project DB is a bit puzzling (Don't we have a bunch of 1st/2nd year DBs that fit this bill). Especially with Raven, Countess, McClure, Taylor in the mix who are much higher regarded than this kid.
Poaching recruits from a sub .500 Gopher team doesn't exactly give me wood...
Let's hope he's got skillz...Go Blue
|5 years 36 weeks ago||NRK - His recruiting was a||
NRK - His recruiting was a complete unknown to me until these recent public backings. I knew he was a helluva coach, just didn't know that he was such a sniper on the recruiting trails.
Hopefully he has some blue chips in his cross hairs!
Maybe someone with photo shop skillz could give us our top targets in crosshairs!
|5 years 36 weeks ago||My #1 concern was recruiting||
My #1 concern was recruiting with Mattison. I was terrified we had another Gerg who was old and just sat home without recruiting! To hear this makes me BEYOND excited, great X's & O's coach combined with badass recruiter = Extreme Jubilation.
I'm becoming overwhelmed with positivity with our program...Me Likey!
|5 years 36 weeks ago||I'm still confused on this.||
I'm still confused on this. Lucien looked awesome on film, very smooth/fluid athlete that caught everything that came his way. I haven't watched anything on Flowers, but I want to and hope I see a HUGE difference in talent levels.
Agree with Tom - Creating a connection to a possible future big time recruit is never a bad thing especially when we have room in this class to take Lucien.
|5 years 36 weeks ago||Neon Leon....||
Leon Hall, I read an interview with McClure saying he has talked to Leon about UM and he advised to do what is best for him. Leon said that UM was the best situation for him, so Stefan should do the same. I would be surprised if Leon didn't give a little postive talk about Michigan DB history in the NFL...
|5 years 36 weeks ago||I would feel much better||
I would feel much better about losing Dallas Crawford if we can get Stefan on board. Seems to be a very good player and if he's taking a visit on this short of notice there has to be serious interest.
Like they say, get them on campus and there's always a chance...GO BLUE!
|5 years 36 weeks ago||4-3!||
Thank god, now I don't have to watch Mike Martin fight through a triple team to pummel the QB. Just imagine that animal if we can get Big Will/Q just to take up a blocker or two, other teams will shit their pants preping for him!
I fully expect this to open the door for DL/LB recruits we weren't getting before because of the 3-3-5. I have no clue what our offense will be, but what I do know is that our defense will be MUCH better and tough.
Defense wins championships...GO BLUE!
|5 years 36 weeks ago||Please bring on Corwin||
Please bring on Corwin Brown...On New Englands staff, which is a good thing. Guy was a helluva recruitor at ND for Fat Weiss and could really help those young DB's of ours.
Hire a f%*#@!^ DC/DB coach for the love of god!
|5 years 36 weeks ago||Why leave a good situation:||
Why leave a good situation: Nice Salary/Free Tats/Loaded SUV's/Food/No NFL Pressure and 5 weeks off to bang fat OSU chicks to start the season...
|5 years 36 weeks ago||Know what's funny...I wrote||
Know what's funny...I wrote that, started thinking back even further (Llllllloyd's final few years-present) and am more pissed now...It's sad, I've been on this earth 31 years and NEVER experienced UM football experience 1 year like this, but this shit has been going for 4+ years now.
CFB programs go in cycles, we were lucky enough to dodge that for decades. I am realistic, but you know what, fuck this embarrassing mediocrity and please bring Michigan Football back!
|5 years 36 weeks ago||Make it stop...||
I always try to be positive and look at things from a glass half full point of view...But holy fuck, I feel like every time I check for recruiting updates it just ends up being a Zoltan Mesko punt to my hangdown. Hoke hasn't been on the job long, still has 16? days to pull something out of his ass (somewhat hopeful yet somewhat sarcastic statement at the same time).
Dudeness might be angry, but we can't be blind to the fact things are fucking ugly right now. This decision really makes me wonder, watched this kid's Youtube for 5 minutes and can tell he is a baller. What's the worst that happens, he comes as a WR and it doesn't work out then switched to DB - SEE CAM GORDON
UM Football has been a cluster fuck since the ass raping in the Gator Bowl...Probably even since the ass raping in Columbus - Wisc - PSU - Iowa - MSU
PLEASE, for sake of my sanity give me something positive.
|5 years 36 weeks ago||Free Tats, Yukon Danali's,||
Free Tats, Yukon Danali's, wraparounds from T Pryor and a nice salary is very persuasive...Throw in a guaranteed 4.0 with an elementary comprehension level and it's a no brainer!
|5 years 37 weeks ago||If they bring in this guy and||
If they bring in this guy and someone like Corwin Brown for DB's I would like it. Corwin was the guy recruiting all the big time talent to ND under Wiess and is coaching for the Patriots right now - So he must know a thing or two about coaching as well.
|5 years 37 weeks ago||The reason Cam Newton was||
The reason Cam Newton was eligle is for $$$$$$$$$$. Without him the National Championship is a joke game and the NCAA knows that. I fully believe there will be a hammer laid down on Auburn and their 'Ship will be taken away a la Fab Five banners. Same situation with OSU, suspended those jackasses for 5 games next year and let them play in the bowl for $$$$. Now, I REALLY hope the NCAA investigates OSU's cheating too...Which is probably just a dream.
Also, consider the NCAA doesn't act upon things quickly. They gather ALL information & have a iron clad case before taking someone to NCAA court. We all knew Kwame was guilty/crooked, but FBI waited until they had everything lined up to take him down.
|5 years 37 weeks ago||IMO - Sounds like a kid who||
IMO - Sounds like a kid who is upset about losing coaches he got really close with. If he doesn't commit to the U this weekend and we get in contact with him with TRUE interest in his skillset I think we have a chance.
|5 years 37 weeks ago||I agree it's going to be||
I agree it's going to be tough, this recruiting class is probably shot..I'm just praying he pulls a couple recruits out of nowhere!
|5 years 37 weeks ago||Can't wait to see how these||
Can't wait to see how these next couple weeks shake out recruiting wise. It's poaching season Hokemania!
|5 years 37 weeks ago||Completely agree with His||
Completely agree with His Dudeness...This class could haunt us. We are lack of talent in many areas (I think we would agree DEFENSE) & getting a piss poor class is not going to help going forward. Plus, national perception that UM is losing, has a no name coach in their eyes & recruits aren't spurning them is not good.
It's not all doom & gloom, but I think this Hoke transition could be as ugly or more so than RR's 1st few years. Keeping all the current players is HUGE because they're not filling behind them in recruiting right now.
Hopefully Hokemania can poach the shit out of some studs before signing day....
|5 years 37 weeks ago||I was emailing my buddies||
I was emailing my buddies that I couldn't wait for Sharp to pipe up at the presser. That was the best part by far!. I like how Hoke answered him, then Sharp being the sniveling pin dick he is tried rephrasing it and asking again...Hoke replied, I know what you're saying, but we can't go anywhere without winning the Big 10. Basically, shut the fuck rob parker jr, I don't know you and will not take your bullshit...
Fuk yo coach freep!
