Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.

I was at that Ball State game and I remember thinking that M could be in trouble when those back-ups were the starters. Yes they were underclassman but why couldn't they tackle, cover, or even make a play at that time? Maybe the recruiting drop off started in 2005 when those kids were recruited?
Does anyone think that, perhaps, once those back-ups became the starters (07', 08') that Michigan just didn't have the talent that it was accustomed to and, therefore, relied too heavily on the name Michigan rather than on preparation?
