Whereas ELPD or MSU police look to arrest 1st, and eject only the obnoxious but not quite criminal?
Wouldn't their stadium be pretty empty by the 4th quarter that way?

You are a very specifc person!
On point 3 the ellipsis represents a continuation, as in recruits who frequently narrow their Top # lists, removing teams, inserting others. It was in no way specific to Xavier Kelly, in fact none of the points were, rather a general observation that players who do this tend NOT to end up at Michigan. There may be something inherently un-Michigan about the personality trait that makes a player want to do this.
Gary is heading towards being this class's Hand - Hope against hope I'm wrong, but you just listed numerous players who did the things I cited and ended up eslewhere. Can you provide a counterpoint list of players who did that and DID end up here?
Because I cannot.

1) Has family in Michigan
2) Parents sing the praises of the University of Michigan, valuing especially the academic excellence and traditions
3) Michigan makes "Final 8, 5, 3 .." .list repeatedly
4) Says Michigan has everything he could ever look for in a school... but needs to see more schools
These are the hallmarks of players who we have reason to feel good about but who DO NOT end up playing for Michigan (forgot name of previously cited scholar-athlete, but include this year's Fla LB on this list, along with Deshawn Hand et al.)
Whether we are "Crystal-balled" by the "experts" is really not the point I was making.
And - if X. Kelly was EVER committed to K St can we safely say his recruitment has BLOWN UP since then?

That was not an explanation, skurn. But it WAS funny at least... as opposed to your previous post!
When you get to be my age, if a little letter transposing when typing on a bloody smart phone is your chief complaint, count yourself very fortunate!

Yes, the Xavier Kelly (and unfortunately Rashan Gary) recruitments are taking on that too familiar feeling of Michigan receiving lavish praise and feeling like the leader - for far too long a time.
Ever since that Rhodes Scholar Valedictorian sang the praises of our tradition and academic excellence - and then picked FSU (?!?!) I've been wary of too much praise for too long a duration. If these guys don't commit before Halloween, they ain't comin...

Can someone explain to me how posting "Great job Ace" on Brain's stuff or "Nice job Brian" on Seth's etc became a thing - and more importantly, why it REMAINS a thing?
I mean.... let it go people!

I'm guessing Sysmarc is a huge Bulls fan, so any questioning of PhilJack's offensive sets would bring about butt-hurt sarcasm as a response. It was describing the entire piece as "questionable" but singling out the reference to the Triangle offense for a pull quote that was the tell...

I'm Commie High '78, and I took my girl to Lord Fox for both graduation and her 18th!!! What a shout out to the past that was... and on my 19th she took me to see Fleetwood Mac at Crisler and I TOUCHED Stevie Nicks hand when she sang "Sarah"... that has nothing to do with Lord Fox or fancy dining in A2 circa 2015, but..... COOL STORY BRO ;-)
anyway, Chop House is it in Ann Arbor of today, although that other old school Steak House is pretty cool too... help an old man out, forgot the name - near Vet's Park

Wow, you're totally welcome. Any other interviewers you'd like dissed & pissed off? Jim can handle that for ya.
When Coward kept saying "I'm a 4-3 WR, sell me on Michigan" I was waiting for JH to come back "Gee Colin, I don't know if we have a need for a 4 foot 3 receiver!"

Whoa - are you Petros who played a bit for USC? You know, the blowhard who's on a syndicated show called something like "Petros & Money"?
I'm guessing he said tl;dr about every book they assigned him to read at So Cal. What the hell brings ya to Mgoblog?

I appreciate your reasonable, measured approach to evaluating Harbaugh's method (or madness) in offering so many "under the radar" types at this point in the recruitment cycle...and with numbers!
Will Weaver end up ranked comparably to Ron Johnson? Can't say yet. Does taking one preclude taking the other? No way of knowing that right now. People who think they know better than Jim frickin Harbaugh what's best for Michigan's FB program can come on here and hyperventilate all they want. The only things we can positively say will be accomplished by that is either firing up (or possibly alienating) any of our recruits that read the blog. The thing we can positively say will NOT be accomplished is Jim Harbaugh changing one damn thing he's doin to please Hannibal or Pinky!

It really chaps my friggin hide how much more buckeye fans care than we do!!! Would doing something like that even OCCUR to anyone on this blog?!?! I mean really putting it all ON THE LINE for the team?!
We have got to step up - as a fanbase. I mean, how many more people are gona rail on taking 2-3* under-the-radar types, but never really DO something that could help the team?!
I mean, Hell, I bet you wouldn't even HAVE to forge some osu players autographs - anyone on here own a tattoo parlor or something?
