that's unfortunate, but at least the interest is there on both sides

It doesn't apply to Anzalone but I was referring to the second time Levenberry reached out to the coaching staff. Their position (according to Rivals) was "no thanks, you had your shot to commit but we are sticking to our promise we made to the LBs who have committed that we wouldn't take more than two." Allegedly, that's the quid pro quo of the policy. Now, if the policy was one-sided from the get-go (I.e. once you commit, no visits period no matter who we recruit), that's one thing. It's just that the justification behind the policy has been explained (again by rivals and others) in this two-way, 'coaching staff also commits to you' dynamic that doesn't seem to be the case.

I haven't seen this discussed yet (if it already has, my bad), but doesn't this offer to Reschke run counter to the spirit of the coaching staff's "you commit to us, we commit to you" no-visit policy? Granted, they obviously know more about the situation than us but I thought the entire reason behind turning away Anzalone and Levenberry was that they committed themselves to two lb commits in Gedeon and McCray. This was also the reasoning used to explain why they are no longer recruiting Dawson. If so, doesn't that come across as hypocritical? Like I said, if this has already been discussed thoroughly, then you can delete/neg the piss out of me. I just wanted to see if there were other opinions on the matter.

I was at the show and didnt even realize it. To be fair, it was dark and I was in the nosebleeds on the opposite side of the arena, but that's awesome. He's one of the best drummers in the world and it was a great show.

Really Reilly? Gosder shouldve gone undrafted? Its apparent that this guy doesnt even watch NFL games, let alone the Lions. Gosder had his best year as a pro last year prior to getting hurt. What a clown.

Or irritatingly inaccurate about the Klosterman essay? FWIW, its not an article but an excerpt of an essay from his new book so I can see why he was telling his reader that they could skip ahead if they didnt want to get bogged down by the nuances of a spread offense/zone read. Its not like he wrote it for ESPN. I thought it was a good read.

I think that line is indirect (basically hearsay) evidence of the Vest negative recruiting us. Im glad its backfired so far but Pryor is a baller and its only a matter of time before they figure out how to use him properly.
In the words of Donovan Mcnabb, "Keep my name out your mouth."

Thanks for passing that along. Klosterman is one of my favorite authors and this excerpt doesnt disappoint. Killing Yourself to Live is a also great read for any music aficionados out there (or for anyone who loves pop culture).

So funny. My friends and I still bring it up and it was years ago.

Let's just worry about ND next weekend. Their passing offense looks scary. Boo Boo needs to be healthy and our secondary needs to be on their game. We need to hit Jimmah hard and often.

Forum is big and there are a lot of Michigan fans but the booze is expensive. I actually like the Hill on 30th and 3rd a lot. Great tvs, decent prices, hot bartenders and hostess, but it does get packed and you'd have to get there early.

For some reason, I cant start a new thread on the message board, but does anyone know where to watch Michigan games in DC? Thanks.

Isnt the white guy in the vids the younger Boren? If so, two things: 1) When was this vid taken? I assume recently bc of Stokes and Gallon, which would be LONG after the Boren/UMICH fallout. Bizarre. 2) I need to scale back on following recruiting bc I should not be recognizing someone that obscure. Of course, Im probably completely wrong and thats not a recruit whose family basically ostracized themselves from the progrum.
