"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."

I know this is bad news we are losing committs, but why do we want/need Brady's recruits at this point-its not as if he has an amazing eye for talent.

TomVH esk interview- Can't wait to see more of these.

How exciting is it that all of the sudden meeting the basketball coach and team is a highlight of a visit and something that can have a profound impact. Talk about a nice bonus.

Wow-is the 2010 Michigan class the most disasterous of any "bigtime" university in the history of recruiting. Devin Garder was basically an instate gift, make Jake Ryan the only actual recruitment that we can give RR credit for. Truly amazing.

I hate to be negative because the coaches do a great job of getting the players they want early. But closing on big names has definitely been an issue in the first 2 years.
|3 years 3 days ago||The only scary thought it||
The only scary thought it that in the last 2 recruiting classes as good as they have been there are no offensive skill players that will dramatically change the face of the offense.

Out of all the things that happen in rec sports these days: parents fighting with each other and refs you really think that is a big deal?

I hate to be stereotypical but the guy in the photo looks exactly how I imagined a sex offender would.

I am a bit suprised of the lack of sucess we have had in getting some big time DE the last two years. I thought with that being Mattison and Hokes speciality the big timers would be signing up the way they have for the OL.

Kugler and morris will be in the top 20...Some tweets from Tom Luginbill about the ESPN 150 also points out that some illinois linemen will be highly rated..
The state of Illinois is having a rare year for prospects, especially offensive lineman.
There is a center in top 20 of
This is the best group of pocket passers in the QB class of 2013 we have seen in awhile. The dual-threats are down in numbers.
|3 years 32 weeks ago||This staff is wayy too||
This staff is wayy too inpatient to even give all of those high profile guys a chance to committ- 4 of those will be part of the class with a few projects.

I think Shane is just saying he was offered by OSU or Bama as well...

Got it, no worries. Going to be really interesting about recruiting Jay Ru. Borges does has a history of working with QB's that fit his mold. Like Campbell.

17) Chance Stewart (likely a 4* instate QB in class between Shane and Jayru)
They are different years....Chance 2014 and Jayru 2015...so not really an inclass battle.

Seems like a solid pickup, but sometimes I wish the staff would slow down a bit and save some additional spots for all of the elite blue chips we are in on.

One of the reporters contacted rivals about that day and that info is not accurate. But who really cares.

MI CB Jourdan Lewis (ditto), MI OL David Dawson (no offer, could get one this weekend), MI DT Kenton Gibbs (same as Dawson), IL OL Kyle Bosch (offer), IL OL Ethan Pocic (offer).

Woohoo-looking forward to many recruit updates and knowing who is visiting each weekend!

I call myself a very optimistic and huge Michigan fan. But after watching the NC this year I don't know how any Michigan fan could say this team, no matter how great our recruiting class was is in line to win a national championship without some additional MAJOR pieces.
|3 years 42 weeks ago||I literally laughed out loud||
I literally laughed out loud at this line "I am going to say this class wins two conference titles and one national championship." l think this class has only 2 years playing with braxton miller at qb then will have its final years with a newcommer so basically in those two years they have to accomplish that. Sure its possible but to have that as the expectation is borderline rediculous.
|3 years 42 weeks ago||Honestly, what a||
Honestly, what a dissapointing close-no momentum at the end at all. You'd think with all the commits locked up before signing day we would have been able to focus on some other guys and steal a few.

I for one don't even get angry at this-Saban is obviously one of the hardest workers to find these loopholes to help entice top recruits.

You really took the time to complain about the uniforms? Do you have a life?

Why can't everyone just man up and take the loss for what it is. I'm tired of all these excuses.
