|4 years 41 weeks ago||I'm surprised||
We didn't go hard after Rushel Shell from PA. I've barely even heard his name as a recruit on here.
|4 years 43 weeks ago||Maybe this is something to look into||
I turned on the BTN last night and was watching a bit of the Wisconsin vs Ohio State when for some reason I started thinking about Anthony Gonzalez the former OSU WR who is now in the NFL. Does anyone remember how he owned an oxygen tent? I thought I remembered hearing this but wondered if I might've made it up in my head. This bed sounded pricey to me so I thought I'd check it out. I found "It’s not surprising that Gonzalez invested $5,000 in the tent" in http://tucsoncitizen.com/morgue/2007/01/06/37806-ohio-state-wrs-leave-foes-breathless/
Where does a student-athlete get $5000 to spend on an oxygen bed? It's probably nothing but maybe...
I know this is off topic for this thread but I'm unable start my own. Apologies to the OP.
|5 years 4 days ago||I've been wondering about the DE recruiting for a while now too.||
I think Michigan has a great chance at having an outstanding DE class. It seems there's a lot more talent than usual, especially in the Midwest. ie. If these guys want to stay in the region and go to a national football power their options are Michigan, Notre Dame & Ohio State. ND took 3 top top rated guys last year and OSU has limited numbers this year. (I'll say now I have no idea where anyone is going) For fun let's say
Ohio State takes 3 - say Ifeadi Odenigbo, Greg McMullen & LaTroy Lewis
Notre Dame takes 3- Tom Strobel, Se'Von Pittman, Adolphus Washington
Michigan then could choose from Matt Godin, Mario Ojemudia, Chris Wormley & Pharoah Brown.
I'd normally say Penn State could come in an pick off one or 2 since they are the next closest power. However PSU already has a DE commitment from Michael Moore, and I imagine they'll be in on both Sean Spence and Darius Hamilton.
Obviously any of these players could choose one of these other teams or another program not listed. I sure hope these guys don't go out of conference, especially to the SEC. I prefer top level recruits to stay in the region to provide competition to make Michigan better and to strengthen the conference as a whole.
I don't know how many DE's any of these schools are gonna take but there is a lot of talent available. I think we're all gonna be pleased with our DE recruiting next February. It's gonna be interesting nonetheless.
|5 years 11 weeks ago||I'm wondering why||
I'm wondering why Noah Spence and Rushel Shell haven't been offered. They're both highly rated recruits from PA. I've read Spence was sending his tape to the Michigan coaches. Shell seems like he is the kind of back the coaches would want but I haven't read anything regarding him and Michigan.

Loved the movie quote. Well done.
|5 years 40 weeks ago||I believe||
Penn State also recruits NJ pretty heavily.
|5 years 40 weeks ago||When are teams||
eligible to start practice? I understand from the orginal post the SEC has already started. Does each conference set their own rules for this or does the NCAA mandate it? This could be quite an advantage for the SEC or any other conference. If Michigan could have started already why haven't they? Also, if they wanted to start on August 10 couldn't they have said to the NCAA "look we wanted to start on __/__/2010 but we're starting August 10th instead, so here are x amount of hours back".
|5 years 45 weeks ago||Only one school||
has won the National Championship in Football, Baseball, Basketball & Hockey. Michigan!
|5 years 48 weeks ago||please explain||
I'm not sure what was meant by "if he finds out that his path to UM might hurt his potential as a future NFL player".
|6 years 5 weeks ago||Are there any issues between||
Are there any issues between Petrino and Rodriguez?
Petrino and Rodriguez both coached in the Big East at the same time. (2005 & 2006).
I know I'm probably reading way too much into this but I thought I'd mention it.
|6 years 15 weeks ago||We need this guy||
He is a must get IMO. I'm also pulling for Lawrence Thomas. I've read we were his childhood team growing up just like Trey. I know it's tough to get a recruit out of Detroit Renaissance because of their ties to MSU but I believe RichRod can do it. I also believe things are gonna come together on the field this year too.
|6 years 15 weeks ago||Along with adding depth to a position of need||
it would be nice to develop a good presence in the Louisiana.
|6 years 15 weeks ago||Forgive my ignorance||
but how do people know where Rich Rods plane is and when?
|6 years 15 weeks ago||I think BG||
will be a great Pro. He'd be lucky to go to the Colts and have the chance to learn from Freeney. Who himself is considered undersized for the position. I can't wait to see Brandon play on Sundays.
|6 years 15 weeks ago||Thanks||
I hadn't heard about the Stanford coach going to Florida either. Thanks for the info.
|6 years 15 weeks ago||Well Austin||
at least enjoys his water. He'll enjoy it even more after a Barwis workout.
|6 years 16 weeks ago||I'm really curious to find out||
who this mystery OL recruit is. I wonder if he doesn't decide for Michigan if we'll find out anyway.
|6 years 16 weeks ago||It seems to me that||
we need some instant impact freshman who we can plug in to play right away. I don't see that in this class. I'd like to think we have some recruits who have a very high upside down the line. At this point however we have holes to fill and positions where we need an upgrade but no one ready in the pipeline.
|6 years 29 weeks ago||I think it's completely reasonable||
to rely on the star system as a predictor. The operative word being predictor.
Rivals says "The ranking system ranks prospects on a numerical scale from 6.1-4.9.
Scout has had him as a 5 star and the #48 player in the country.
That being said I don't think it's realistic to think each and every player is going to live up to their projection. Others will be much better...
