|4 hours 29 min ago||Yes, and despite what's in the OP,||
his comments before the trip were the least encouraging of any of the visitors.

it would be all over Michigan-centric ttwitter. Wouldn't it?

|18 hours 4 min ago||They're both versatile players that could play the||
same positions on either side of the ball. It does sound like they're recruiting Jr for offense, but maybe he's open to playing DE. He might well have met with the defensive coaches during his OV too. I'm sure we'd take him for either.
The timing of this commitment does not look like a coincidence at all. Pickard was originally planning to announce this Wednesday, which would have been during Wheatley's OV.
|18 hours 12 min ago||Just where do you think Smith is committed?||
|20 hours 18 min ago||I don't think it's the beginning of a trend.||
Who was the last backup QB who stayed on the roster for his fifth season? Scott Dreisbach perhaps, but he was legitimately fighting for a starting job his whole career.
If we start bringing in two a year, some will be either changing positions or leaving before 4 years.
|1 day 17 hours ago||I was responding to a poster who said we should||
recruit top 5 classes every year. Imo, that's just crazy and a long way from saying we can recruit a top 5 class once in awhile. You just listed 4 teams you expect to be ahead of us. Given that, isn't recruiting at a top 10 level overall a more realistic hope than top 5? There's a lot of serious competition besides the schools you mentioned. Louisville, UCLA and Indiana to name a few.
|1 day 18 hours ago||Even the fab five was eclipsed by one of Kentucky's classes.||
And year to year, no one's even remotely close to Kentucky.
|1 day 18 hours ago||Of course offers get rescinded when spots are taken.||
It's not possible for 25 recruits to accept their offers simultaneously. They generally know how many players a team want to take at their position. They know they can miss out if they wait too long. Exceptions will be made for a handful of guys like Marshall, as long as there is any room at all.
There are such things as non-committable offers, too. Alabama is well known for them, but they're not uncommon. John Beilein won't extend offers unless players make a visit to campus, get the academic tour, send in their transcripts, etc. Other coaches might send out offers, but they are contingent on various things.
|1 day 19 hours ago||Nobody in the history of the sport||
has recruited anywhere near Kentucky under Calipari. It's pointless to compare us to them. Nobody else can pull in top 5 classes every year. To think we can, because Fisher had a couple (out of eight), with some under the table help is silly.
We lost a lot more players last year than normal. We should expect the team to take a step back when that happens, even with a highly ranked, non-Kentucky level class.
|1 day 20 hours ago||You're exactly right.||
I certainly missed where we are trending down with guys like Winston and Towns. Winston seems to be trending up, perhaps related to the Thornton sentiment.
|1 day 20 hours ago||It's not going to matter in every HS in NJ.||
It could conceivably matter to a few coaches who never sent their kids here anyway. Partridge was going to be a position coach at Rutgers and a lead recruiter in the state. It matters a lot to Rutgers if they lose out on some local players. Here, he's in the background. If he helps land one 5*, I'd say we came out ahead.
Harbaugh may be hiring him as a favor to their new coach. He's unlikely to stay at this job long. He looks like a young coach with a lot of potential.
|1 day 20 hours ago||Consider the context in this case.||
It's a recruiting job at a university. A big part of our recruiting pitch to prospective players is the value of a university degree, particularly one from U-M. It's also in the program's interest to have their players graduate. I doubt you can get far in the collegiate coaching ranks without a degree.
|1 day 22 hours ago||Iowa is flipping him from EMU and he is ranked||
outside the top 30 in Michigan. I think it's a fair guess that we didn't show much interest in him. Good luck to him at Iowa.
|1 day 23 hours ago||I beg to differ. There have always been kids||
that get overlooked. The recruiting services have gotten bigger, so they actually employ more scouts in the field. Scout has him in their database. They even have video of him. He's on Hudl too.
The fact that he has no offers is a lot more meaningful than any rating. The NM schools take a lot of in-state players. You have to wonder why they don't appear to be interested. Surely they know all about his HS career.
|2 days 3 hours ago||Dumb is the word that definitiely comes to mind.||
It isn't about being afraid of having your kids gets hurt. It's about hidden injuries. Things no one may have even noticed that accumulate and cause serious, irreparable damage. That's scary on a whole different level and one where the dangers have never been well understood.
|2 days 14 hours ago||Wasn't he just hired to be the QB coach?||
There's no good way for them to spin this.
|2 days 18 hours ago||I never liked his show. The last time I listened,||
he was talking about how V Mart was a bust and the Tigers should move him. This was in a May when he got off to a slow start. His knowledge seems commensurate with the typical serious fan, with their same tendency to overreact to everything. He seems far short of an expert in anything, except for antagonizing Michigan fans.
|2 days 19 hours ago||I'm not sure Demar Dorsey is a good example to use||
when it comes to admissions. He didn't get in here, or any 4 year school, because his online school was a fraudulent one. That probably took more than a regular look at his transcripts to surface.
RR had other commits that didn't get in either, including players that were qualified. His relationship with admissions wasn't good. Hoke didn't have that problem. I don't know if they were following different procedures or he was just less willing to take a chances on players with shaky academics.
|2 days 23 hours ago||He was offered by OSU in the summer.||
He's had an OV there planned for this weekend.
|2 days 23 hours ago||Yeah, the obvious answer is that tweet isn't||
quite right. Offering him as a CB seems much more likely.
|3 days 52 min ago||Yes, he got off to a bad start at the end of the first||
paragraph, complaining about the coverage. I hope their letters of apology had a far different tone.
|3 days 1 hour ago||Do you really believe Harbaugh||
had 8-10 QBs on his rosters at Stanford? It's just funny to hear you say that what was he was doing was wrong for some reason that no one would ever overlook.
|3 days 14 hours ago||Then maybe the blame should fall on||
the people who hired DB.
|3 days 17 hours ago||That would be crazy.||
|3 days 17 hours ago||There haven't been many TEs offered.||
Pickard said he was offered as a DE. It's clear they want two CBs and haven't gotten any yet.
|3 days 22 hours ago||You consider paying for the damages you cause||
a punishment? I'd call it fulfilling an obligation, like paying for your meal when you dine out.
|4 days 3 hours ago||LOL||
How about renting him a house here so he could be nearby? That wouldn't be any more of a violation.
|4 days 19 hours ago||It would have meant a lot more if he didn't go.||
I don't imagine he'd want to miss that celebration unless he was certain he wasn't going to OSU.
|4 days 21 hours ago||LMIII was the only one of those guys it||
felt like we had a serious shot at landing. Adoree eliminated us early because Hoke wouldn't let him run track as a freshman. Cravens and JuJu did a little looking around, but it would have been a shock if they went anywhere but USC.
