He had SOME highly rated players. It took Harbaugh three solid years at Stanford before he was bringing in decent classes and even then it isn't like they were top 5 or something.
Michigan's recruiting will hit the next gear once they start winning. Given the context, the fact that he's likely to pull in a top 10 class is really impressive.

According to Dave Brandon, yes.
|1 day 9 hours ago||Not sure that this is||
Not sure that this is necessarily good for Michigan. Upshur could become that much more difficult to get.
|1 day 10 hours ago||For me the most exciting news||
For me the most exciting news here is the Drake Harris one. They badly need athletes at WR, not undersized tight ends. I mean, there's a place for that but not every gosh damn one of them.

40 something dad with his wife on their way to pick up their pre teen kids from their last day of school. Tragic hardly begins to describe it.
|1 day 23 hours ago||What about selling them on StubHub?||
Would that be a dick move?
|1 day 23 hours ago||Was there a realtor involved||
Was there a realtor involved in the sale? I can't believe it would be that difficult to find the seller of a home.

Can we get a UFR?

If I'm understanding your comment, in other words "none of these coaches have coaching experience."
|2 days 5 hours ago||The words "limited spots" and||
The words "limited spots" and "Buckeyes" should never be in the same sentence.

Since this was labeled OT I thought for sure this had to do with the universe expansion theory.

|3 days 13 hours ago||I may be wrong but I think in||
I may be wrong but I think in the past the roster is released when the players report for camp, usually the day before the first official day for practice. I would assume this involves a weigh in.
|3 days 13 hours ago||There's a huge, huge||
There's a huge, huge difference between "we won't save you a spot if you visit other schools," and "you're not welcome here if you go visit other schools."

I for one appreciate this thread. I suddenly have the urge to start up the smoker.

Might want to ask Seth before advertising your website here.
|4 days 1 min ago||This is the most talented||
This is the most talented stable of backs (based on their recruitment) that Michigan has had since I can remember; basically the modern recruiting era. With effective coaching and coherent direction on the offensive line someone has to emerge. That sheer odds that all of these guys turn out to be total busts are insanely low.

I can't think of a better description of how he left Florida.
Besides "downfall" implies you were once at the top, and you fell... down.
|4 days 20 min ago||I love reading all these||
I love reading all these comments that are basically lamenting that their best days are behind them.
|4 days 3 hours ago||You're not alone||
I am having doubts about any player who seems to be favoring Michigan but not committing for any more than a couple months.
|4 days 3 hours ago||Really?||
Seems odd to think Urban would trust his own scouting over that of Rivals or Scout.
|5 days 1 hour ago||This will seem totally random||
This will seem totally random and weird, but every time we miss on a recruit who is at a position of need, this scene from 13th Warrior flashes through my mind
Right after the scene ends Buliwyf says "We will miss Angus tonight, we will miss his sword"
|5 days 2 hours ago||I remember it seemed like||
I remember it seemed like such a treat every time I would go out west. "Oh, we are going to Vegas next month? I HAVE to get me some Fat Tire while we're there!" Now that I have access to it all the time it seems like it is barely a step up from Blue Moon or Leinenkugel.

Sounds like there are a lot of good stories in there...

Am I the only one who is tired of Fat Tire?

Am I crazy, did I have a premonition, or is this news a couple weeks old?

I have a very dubious feeling about Naseir Upshur. I hope I'm wrong because we will really miss his sword.
