If my kicker sucks (which 50% of college kickers can't be trusted to make a 47 yarder) then I'd play action with a single WR 10 out and if he's not immediately open then throw to a releasing TE/RB for 4+ yards and the first down.

3) He's a legit recruit and not a "sleeper" or unknown (which would more support your point);
4) It is never good to lose a MSU/UM, OSU/UM, and maybe even a PSU/UM battle with any recruit;
5) The legacy thing is important .... but not as important as 1, 2, 3, and 4.
I always considered his recruitment a no-brainer and consider him a "must get" (and no, the sky won't implode upon us if he choses a different path... but in the world of recruiting he is a "must get."

But, after that field goal... seeing him jumping up and down and going crazy it was obvious to me (and for the first time to him) that when push-comes-to-shove he's a Wolverine first.

Nothing in law takes "a total of one man hour." The costs associated with docketing alone would surprise you.
And there is no such thing as "immediately" in the courts. And every filing, hearing, docketing, argument, ball-scratch costs money... it adds up.

I also expect my hopes to become reality.

But with so much need on defense I can't believe they didn't "reach" for one of the FS. This draft is very thin at FS and there are no instant contributors besides the three taken in the first round.

So, even if Glasgow is the No. 1 guard after fall camp... he's won't start on 8/30. He's watching Bosch and Kalis start and if they play well, he may be the No. 3 option at guard.
