This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.

I think Speight is going to a QB camp in San Diego and bringing along Drake to catch balls.
|1 week 2 days ago||To add on to this, Peppers||
To add on to this, Peppers has teased a surprise visit at the end of May, but he won't say where. These two tweets add up to a surprise visit to New York (ESPN's studios?) at the end of May so the two ESPN 150 players can commit on TV.

Don't forget about Mone.
|3 weeks 9 hours ago||Hand and McDowell||
I don't think Marshall's commitment would have as much of an effect on our pursuit of Hand & McDowell as people seem to think. He's a classic WDE while Hand is a SDE and McDowell is a SDE that could also play DT.
|5 weeks 14 hours ago||Sure...||
...but what's the point of being worth millions if you have to live in Ohio?
|9 weeks 4 days ago||5 years...||
What I found most interesting is this statement:Said Hand: "Can I live there for five years (and) do I get along with the people there?"
He's the top recruit in the country and he's planning on spending five years in college? Most elite kids are not planning on redshirting and are hoping to be in the NFL by the end of Year 3. Maybe I'm reading too much into this, but I love this kid's character.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||A good problem to have||
|11 weeks 3 days ago||I don't think so||
We're talking about still-growing athletes who are improving their leg strength and doing regular speed training with professional coaches. They're adding weight, but it's primarily muscle, which tends to increase speed rather than slow you down. I could see why a guard might slow down a touch by going from 270 to 310 lbs, but skill position players should become substantially faster.
|11 weeks 6 days ago||This class will be much||
This class will be much larger than 16. That's the number of scholarships available right now, but attrition will occur due to injuries, transfers, forgone fifth years, early NFL draft entrees, player misconduct, etc. We'll probably end up with a little over 20 commits, which is should be plenty to have a top 5 class if there's a lot of quality top-to-bottom.
|11 weeks 6 days ago||Oops||
Replied to the wrong message
|12 weeks 9 hours ago||Ahem....||
"(Mason and I) talked about it -- we're going to go to the same school. We know for a fact we're going to the same school."
"If me and Tay do end up going to the same school, that will definitely influence George [Campbell] a lot. Us three are like brothers. It would definitely sway his decision a little bit."
|13 weeks 4 days ago||He said he views Michigan||
He said he views Michigan State to be even with all the other schools that have offered. He may not have called up Dantonio and officially decommitted, but the kid is not going to play football at Michigan State.
These Kentucky rumors seem to be baseless, but the truth is that Kentucky would probably be my #1 choice of school for Drake Harris if he eventually spurns Michigan. Let's keep him away from Ohio, MSU, Notre Dame, and any team that we might see in a bowl game one day. Kind of like how I feel about Treadwell -- I wish he'd came to Michigan, but at least he's at Ole Miss and we don't have to deal with defending the kid for the next four years.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||I like his wheels, but he's||
I like his wheels, but he's way too slow to be a college running back. If Hawaii's coaches have any sense, they'll stick this kid at the nose and let him chase down QBs all day.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||Relax||
If you listen to recruits, it's pretty clear that Michigan plays fast and loose with the Woodson card. Every year there seems to be a handful of guys who make some statement along the lines of, "Coach said I could become the next Woodson!"
To be honest, I'm surprised it gets kids so excited; most of them were 0-2 years old when Woodson won the Hesiman.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||Why haven't we shown interest||
Why haven't we shown interest in Reilly Gibbons? He's got offers from Ohio State and Florida, and I'm sure his brother could put a good word in for the good guys.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||Wait...?||
So you don't want Michigan to land most of their 2014 targets?
|13 weeks 6 days ago||Mone is probably a step above||
Mone is probably a step above Marshall, but unless we end up with an absurd DL class like Mone/Hand/McDowell, I'd still like to see a WDE pass rusher in there. Marshall was probably our best offer at the position if you exclude the elite national guys that are going to be nearly impossible to pull in.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||See?||
This is why the SEC needs to be allowed to oversign. Every year, you know you're going to have a handful of your players arrested for violent felonies
|14 weeks 2 days ago||Eh||
This is just offensive positions. Their DB haul was the best in the country.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||If Shane is substantially||
If Shane is substantially better than Bellomy AND Gardner gets a serious injury -- something that would keep him out of a large portion of an important game -- then let's burn the redshirt. Otherwise, I want to see the kid play with the rest of the class when they've fully matured in 2017.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||Injuries?||
You don't lose a game because one player gets injured. You lose a game because your back-up wasn't good enough.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||Last season they went 12-0||
Last season they went 12-0 and beat us. They'd probably have beaten ND for the BCS Championship if not for sanctions that were enacted before he came to OSU. I'm not sure your comment stings as much as you'd like.
|14 weeks 5 days ago||Nope||
Here's their likely cause for celebration -- 4-star QB Josh Dobbs flipped to Tennessee.
Edit: Literally one minute after I posted this, news broke that Vonn Bell committing to the Vols. He didn't notify the coaches until this morning, though.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||um||
Couldn't you just point at a player's pre-commitment ranking to show that Michigan's recruiting rankings aren't inflated? It's not like these guys were 2 or 3-stars before they committed.
|15 weeks 4 days ago||Best answers||
4) What's the name of the trophy for the Michigan-Minnesota football rivalry?
"They have a trophy for that game?"
9) Do you know all the words to "The Victors?"
"Do I have to sing it?"
"OK, then yeah, I know them all."
|15 weeks 4 days ago||and Travis Smith||
Travis Smith from Ithaca also seems to be a possibility. Based upon his quotes, it sounds like they've wittled it down even further than we've realized.
"I know they have narrowed it down to three QB's including myself. Coach Borges was at my school last week and is coming back to watch me throw. So, I'm thinking that will be the deciding factor." source
Are their final 3 targets Cornwell, Speight, and Smith?
|15 weeks 6 days ago||Agreed||
Not to mention that we're supposedly the favorite to land Bryan Mone.
|15 weeks 6 days ago||Too bad.||
Ward is a huge raw athlete, but I wonder if he saw the classes ahead of him and realized that he'd likely spend his first couple of years developing while watching the linemen from '12 and '13 play on Saturdays. He doesn't seem like the type that you plug in as a RS frosh, but he could turn into a pretty great player after two or three years of coaching.
He's the type of high risk/high reward player that we should be taking now that we have a lot of blue chips moving into the OL in the coming year. Hopefully he'll look around and decide later that Michigan is the best fit.
|16 weeks 3 days ago||The quote||
Question: "Fair to say that top 3 '14 kids in the state are Webb, McDowell and Harris. Seems like it is more likely than not that Michigan ends up with none of those three. Do you agree, and if so, is that a failure on the staff's part?"
Tim Sullivan: "I think it's way too early to predict that Michigan lands none of them. I would say they're the leader for McDowell, and in pretty good position with Harris. I would say 2/3 is just as likely as 1/3 at this point. If Michigan whiffs on all three, it's definitely a failure on their part, but I just don't see that happening."

I haven't been following Isaac since he committed to USC. Is he looking around?
