Kiffin may have saved his 2013 recruiting class by delaying Polamaly's termination until after NSD, but he also exposed his ethics to future recruits.
His short-term gain this year will serve as a warning to future recruits and give competing coaches a weapon to use against Kiffin in future recruiting.
Rather than hoping Kiffin gets fired, we should hope that he stays at USC and runs their program further into the ground.
As for Ty Isaac and Leon McQuay, they made their choices. Had Isaac committed to Michigan, we probably would not have gotten Derrick Green. A committment from Leon McQuay would have been nice but we still have good depth and talent at safety without him.
Let's move on and focus on those choose Michigan!

He is the same age as Shane Morris and would be been in the 2013 recruiting class without the extra year of eligibility. In Wilton Speight, we will be getting a 2014 recruiting class QB that is a year more mature physically than most other QB's in the 2014 class. In effect, we will be getting two 2013 QB's in Morris and Speight, but Speight will have one more year eligibility than Morris.

The key to Denard's success in the NFL is to be drafted by a team that has the patience to develop and maximize his talents rather than one that expects him to contribute right away.
An ideal situation would be to get drafted by New England and be developed to be the successor to Wes Welker. He could be catching passes from Tom Brady and Ryan Mallett for the next 10-15 years. A nighmare scenario would be to get drafted by a team that expects him to contribute right away.
In a way, his dropped balls at the Senior Bowl practices could a a blessing in disguise, because it lowers expectations while allowing him to showcase his athleticism. He might not get the big paycheck right away, but he could make up for it in a longer career with big paychecks down the road.

Using Clemson's logic, Denard played less than 30% of U-M's total offensive plays in his freshman year, so he should be entitled to a fifth year of eligibility.

Since Laquon Treadwell and Anthony Standifer go to the same HS, could Treadwell potentially have the same problem with admissions that Standifer did - lack of two years of foreign language credits? Could that be why he has no favorites ?

|1 year 39 weeks ago||What if||
What if you held spots open for the five stars but they commit elsewhere? In the mean time, the four stars that would have committed to you in February, commit elsewhere while you were waiting for the five stars to decide.
What if one of the five stars that you waited on, commits, but ends up sucking? Or gets injured? Or gets lured away?
What if the coaches rate a four star player higher than recruiting sites do? What if the coaches rate a five star player lower than the recruiting sites do?
Bottom line, trust the coaches. They know a lot more about what they want/need than you do. They have a lot more at stake than anybody else - their livelihoods depends on it.

The target of five OL's in the 2013 class is something that is speculated by message boards.
Has anybody seen or heard the coaching staff commit that they will only sign five OL's 2013 class?
However, there is stated policy that committed players may not take any more visits.
Correlating one with the other is baseless.

|1 year 41 weeks ago||Losing Myers, Alexander, or Jordan||
Losing Myers, Alexander, or Jordan to a head coaching position might not be so bad. Think of it in the same sense as Brady Hoke going to Ball State and SDSU to gain head coaching experience. Myers, Alexander, or Jordan would be much better prepared to take over when Beilein retires than if they continue to assistants at U-M.
When Dave Brandon searched for RichRod's replacement, he said that HC experience was one of the requirements. Could very well be the same when he searches for Beilein's replacement.

|1 year 41 weeks ago||Committable vs non-committable offers||
When coaches make an offer, do they specify whether the offer is committable vs non-committable? How is a prospect supposed to know whether an offer is committable or not? At what point does a non-committable offer become committable?
It would be rather awkward if a coach makes a non-committable offer and a prospect accepts on the spot, only to find out that the offer was non-committable.

A first grade teacher explains to her class that she is a Buckeye fan. She asks her students to raise their hands if they were too.
She asks Kristen why she is a Wolverine fan. "Well, my mom and dad are Wolverine fans, so I'm a Wolverine fan too."
The teacher is now angry.
"That's no reason," she says loudly. "What if your mom was a moron, and your dad was a moron. What would you be then?"
After a pause, and a smile, Kristen says... "Then I'd be a Buckeye fan."

Maize uniforms are a competitive advantage. They stand out more on the court making it is easier for the players to see their teammates. I would rather they wear a color consistently, that makes it easier for them to recognize one another, than to keep switching colors for the sake of symbolism.

UConn is ranked #58 by USNWR. It's just behind OSU (#55) and higher than Purdue (#62), Minnesota (#68), MSU (#71 tie), Iowa (#71 tie), Indiana (#75), and Nebraska (#101).
It's a land grant university with over 22,000 students on the Storrs campus.
The football stadium has a capacity of 38,000, which is definitely at the low end, but Storrs' proximity to large east cost population centers would give Big Ten alums in the northeast a opportunity to see their teams play within a few hours driving distance from home.
If UConn is admitted to the B1G, it could raise the quality of its football program and expand the football stadium's capacity.
Overall, UConn is on the low end sizewise, but would fit the overall B1G school profile.

It's not just Gardner's skills that have to be taken into consideration. Hoke is recruiting players that are suited for the West Coast offense. Borges is not going to delay the transition when he has the players (big WR's, TE's and FB) to run the WC scheme. He'll probably be moving away from the spread in 2012 as Denard and Gardner are more comfortable running the WC offense.
