"Shit feel like Shaq and Penny got back together"
Pretty sure that means Chris Clark AND Mike Weber are back together as Michigan commits.

...this is that late night, workin' after 3.
|3 hours 33 min ago||Guys...||
It's a fricking song. (:39)
Big Sean, Drake and Kanye...even I know this!
|3 hours 40 min ago||FYI||
|8 hours 56 min ago||They had this promo last week as well...||
They seem desperate for new membership.
|12 hours 35 min ago||If you're the new guy||
...make sure you're early or the team might prank the shit out of you and then shimmy in your demise.
|12 hours 38 min ago||Jefferson is having a good visit||
I'm moving him into my 6 to make 7. This would be a GREAT pickup, IMO. The OLSM connection lives!
|12 hours 40 min ago||Mike Weber's lead blocker...||
Let's do it.
|13 hours 21 min ago||I specifically mentioned Michigan||
In that you need good coaching to go along with your good talent. I think you missed that part.
You need both. One or the other isn't going to cut it if you want to be elite.
|13 hours 24 min ago||I didn't call them great||
I speficially said they're still top 20...and they run a system that doesn't rely on top (10) talent. Rather they need good talent in their (offensive) system to be great.

Any idea if we have post-Signing Day plans in order?
Haven't heard anything, but seeing as we're less than a week away, we may have to look at some post-Signing Day kids.
|14 hours 9 min ago||Well F the tea leaves||
Besides...the kid loves the hype and drama. Neither school should feel good right now and that's how he wants it. Come 8:30 on Wednesday it'll be over and we'll be able to go back to the reguarly scheduled program.

= Teric Jones / Darnell Hood, IMO
|14 hours 18 min ago||I think it says a lot that he still hasn't gotten that offer...||
I'd be shocked even if he went to a UCF type.

2014 Team Rankings
2013 Team Rankings
2012 Team Rankings
2011 Team Rankings
Your final four teams, all great recruiting during the past 4 years...and the one team that's slightly off that top 10 dominance, is in the top 20 and they run a system that doesn't rely on top talent (unlike Michigan's system).
Recruiting isn't everything, because I saw a lot of Michigan in those years as well...but if you want to win, it's a hell of a lot easier with good/great players.
It's not overblown. Losing one player is, but losing 10 isn't and it's not only about great coaching.
You need both if you want to be successful and these rankings prove that. Give me Alabama and Nick Saban EMU or Georgia State and I bet I win. Good coaching isn't great without good players and good players aren't great without good coaching (see Brady Hoke).
|18 hours 44 min ago||Eeek||
Still not confident on Weber if we're still sending out offers. Keep griding I suppose.

|20 hours 53 min ago||FWIW||
That actually kind of works on paper...
You become thin at ILB, but you have 3 starters for 2 spots and Gedeon could easily slide over if needed giving way to McCray (so Gant or Wangler didn't have to step in). Add a freshman Roquan Smith to that ILB group and this certainly works...on paper.
WDE still doesn't have much behind Charlton, but Poggi should get better this offseason and if you needed to, you split Ojemudia and Wormley at that spot in run/pass situations.
Regardless, it's nice to know that this defense should be flexible enough to provide multiple looks and figure out what works best.
|20 hours 58 min ago||Indeed it was...||
And when he signed them, it actually looked above average even without my maize and blue classes. Bryant was a starter twice in his career without actually being a starter. Barnett was talented enough to be Hoke's best TE until Butt (and Funchess if you count Funchess) came along.
|21 hours 1 min ago||I wonder if we put a little more weight on RJS||
And try to him in the OLB/DE role we recruited Jones for...
I also look at our roster and our coaches and I wonder if we go primarily 3-4...
|21 hours 46 min ago||Tread carefully||
When I look back at Hoke doing this...it didn't really pan out, but I can't say anyone other than Bellomy and Tamani Carter was a redflag from the beginning. I loved Des Morgan, I thought Barnett would pan out, Rawls had some good hype (thanks Freddy J) and I thought guys like Ray Taylor and Heitzman would do pretty much what they did at Michigan.
Loved the late Norfleet pick up.
But you really have to know the kid, the coaches, etc. --- I wouldn't just be filling a spot to fill it. But if you know there is some talent and potential at MAC schools or at the bottom of the B1G...definitely go after it and make them think a little bit.
Even if they don't get on campus, these kids know Michigan.
|21 hours 55 min ago||For a guy who was supposed to be "Young Mattison"||
For a guy who was supposed to be "Young Mattison" when it comes to recruiting...he sure has been quiet.
I put the 7 guys I mentioned into the class calc on 247 and it put us at #20 and well ahead of MSU. So that at least made me happy.
We have no room error though (unless you're counting Marshall, Williamson or Arnette --- all of which I think are longshots so I'm not even looking at them as potential commits and I'm just going to cross my fingers for some blind luck).
No Pickard and No Snyder does make me curious about Heitzman though, I would've tried like hell to keep him for next year knowing he'd probably be better than either Jake or Matt next year and then go get a more highly rated TE/DE guy in 2016.
|22 hours 17 min ago||I'll take 6||
...obiously, I want more, but trying to be realistic.
RB - Weber (I've explained why)
...my wildcard is Jefferson. I hope he's blue almost as bad as Weber, Clark, Wheatley and Smith, I think the kid is going to be outstanding. Hopefully he's having an amazing visit and commits to us while in A2.
|22 hours 24 min ago||!!||
Was it delicious?!
|22 hours 25 min ago||What are you talking about?||
What is the pattern and why can't you spell Mattison correctly? And how do you know Mattison has a long memory? ...or that he even cares? ...or that he'll even be at Michigan that long?
|22 hours 30 min ago||I didn't say you couldn't||
It happened to us last year...(your scenario)
|22 hours 38 min ago||AWAY.||
|22 hours 39 min ago||GO||
|22 hours 40 min ago||lol||
(I'm not saying I disagree...but I don't understand why you speak so "matter of fact" when in reality you have no idea like the rest of us)
But you know what WILL happen? I WILL get out of this bed and go make myself some breakfast.
