Not knowing it, I googled the reference. Assumed it was the Clayton/Webster reference. Educational, but I'm still none the wiser.

Yeah, kid from Ypsi drops for Louisville and Michigan ahsn't offered yet. All sorts of things seem wibbly wobbly.
Noticed that rankings weren't mentioned for almost anyone save a reference to "fringe top 150" or the like or noted schools in competition for him. More info in this respect - evaluations, rankings, etc -. would help with better context. Seemed dreary but I also imagine a lot of this kids are decently prized recruits.

No polo; I take as a testament to UMich.
Along with the E3W, the three major student-run papers on campus (sorry, 'Gargoyle'?) have developed great talents in many areas of the press.
Bacon can get quality interviews and articles that reach the WSJ, Times, NR, etc. in part because of accomplished Michigan grads.
It's not just turf donations and the Biz School. Go Blue.

Are there articles on this kerfuffle or do either of you have more to share on the context for the like/dislike of his actions?

Thanks to a blogger who is the worthy wordsmith of the school and team worthy of the prose.

I was in the student section in '05/'06 and saw a few guys with 'I [heart] [hart]' shirts and asked where they got them. They looked at me and said MGoBlog, as if I was the silly one.
I had to check it out and got to witness Tacopants, Robot Henne, and Lloyd Carr, poet laureate. It's been about 7 years now I guess.
Thanks Brian. A fan's fan.

The SI article says the online Academy has credibility: "But the reputation of National Connections, and the fast-growing digitalization of U.S. education, affords Eastern Christian a degree of insulation from skepticism."
But the guy who does this:
"Over the past decade, Sills had bankrolled an overhaul of the athletics facilities at Red Lion Christian Academy in Bear, Del. But administrators at that school became concerned that the football program was gaining too much influence, and the two sides parted ways last year. That led Sills to create Eastern Christian."
Makes me nervous.
One hand, yay for American industriousness finding solution to problems through being able to throw money at it. On the other hand, that problem is apparently a high school being too concerned about ensuring that education is a priority.
The casual lack of awareness in the reference "We've probably got 15 Blind Sides on this team." is cringe-worthy.
No doubt Sill's son will be fine regardless of the quality of his education. Hopefully Michigan can assure its ECA recruits the same.
But, we're all happy to have them aboard. Policy discussions of money, race, and privilege go elsewhere.
But really, Honey Badgers? A meme team? C'mon.

I was going to say, cue the handwringing. A direct jump from athlete-student & online classes (however much this may be the future) to UMich could be daunting.
And since were speculating wildly and baselessly: a lack of please-marry-my-daughter character quotes plus few big offers and little attention from scouts could make dudes from the school decommit threats come next season when they (presumably) finally get that attention.
On the plus side, until reevaluations happen we have a legit MGoSleeperOTY candidate.
Having very little information is fun.
