Tom are we slow playing some of these OL recruits? I assume we take 5 OL recruits, and since we already have 2 OL commits, I assume it is not first come first serve with some of these recruits. It looks like magnuson and Diamond are in very good position for UM so are we waiting on the higher tier recruits like Banner to decide before we take an Olsen? Just seems like we can be very selective on OL and was wondering what you have been hearing.
|4 years 18 weeks ago||THANKS!||
Thank you for the reply and for all the information you pass on!
|4 years 18 weeks ago||Tom, if we assume||
Tom, if we assume that Wayne was the "silent" commit, has he taken back that "silent" commitment? I don't want to compromise anything that you can't say, but was just wondering if the silent commit is still viewed as a commit by himself or the UM staff. I appreciate all the info that you share and any light you can shine on the situation! THANKS!

The check Pike received from Auburn must have bounced. He's going Blue now!!!

Rivals mods confirmed its a defensive player as well. If we assume it came from one of the prospects at the spring game than it would have to be Ross, TRich, or Day. I don't believe Bolden made it so it would have to be one of those three. I would be ecstatic with any of them!

That might have been the problem then. I just have watched the available film on him from some combines and it wasn't impressive. He was getting abused on 1 vs 1 drills. If he had a tweaked back that would definitely explain it. Like I previously stated, his offer sheet sure is impressive so I know there are coaches that feel very confident about his talent.
|4 years 32 weeks ago||Tom, do you know why Jordan||
Tom, do you know why Jordan didn't participate in the combine? I was really hoping he would participate to see how he has improved from last year. I don't know if anyone has had the chance to see his past performances at some of the top combines, but he hasn't really shined. In fact, he struggled quite a bit with top competition. Jordan's offer sheet tells a different story and was wondering if he is more of a project/potential prospect. Any thoughts Tom?

Jarrod is reporting offers from Illinois, Indiana, Michigan State, and Toledo. Just looked it up.
|4 years 33 weeks ago||Nice to see a prospect||
Nice to see a prospect excited about an offer and an unofficial visit. Just have gotten a little bummed with some if these kids who get a Michigan offer and their initial reaction is "what took you so long?". Does anyone know what other offers he has?

and I am so excited to have the bowl in FL!!! I just bought 5 lower bowl seats for the whole family. I would've preferred to have matched up with Florida or Tenn, but I am just thankful it is here in FL. GO BLUE!!!

He said fastest WOLVERINES. Call me bitter, but I no longer consider Trent one.

I would love to bring some "MUCK" slot ninja's with me to AA, but have you ever tried to go through airport security with one of them? Shurikens, katanas, naginatas, daggers, spears, bows, smoke bombs, shabos, ninajaken, and wakizashi are a straight bitch to get by security!

What if CC or JT get hurt? We might need a little more depth.

Looks like Grady, Teric Jones, and possibly Gallon will get a shot if this comes to fruition.

Via chat tonight on a pay site. Mods confirmed the possibility. SCARY!!!

Cider mill is definitely on the list. I would love to check out some of the smaller towns in the area as well. I am getting so excited for this trip!!!
|5 years 17 weeks ago||Thanks to everyone||
Thanks to everyone who posted! I really appreciate all the help and I am so excited to do this trip with my wife. She will finally experience "all" of the events that I have tried to explain but simply don't do justice. I have wrote notes on the following posts and will make plans accordingly! Thanks again to everyone and keep it coming!
|5 years 21 weeks ago||Great work Brian||
I have been waiting for something like this to be written. I really have been dissapointed with how Carr has acted through this crisis. I think you hit it on the head Brian! Great stuff!
|5 years 25 weeks ago||That was my first choice but||
the price kind of scared me away. I wanted to get an authentic helmet but it was around the $300 range unsigned. It was in the $500-$1400 range depending of the player who signed it. I perceived a better value on a signed jersey which were in the $300-$400 range. I opted for a "mini" helmet for $60. Got to work with the budget!!!
|5 years 25 weeks ago||Nice recomendation!||
I would love some of those front page posters! I also would love "the pose" picture of Desmond and would LOVE an 8x10 of the Heisman pose that Woodson did this year in Detroit after his pick 6. I thought that picture of Woodson would be everywhere but it is hard to find.
|5 years 25 weeks ago||You are correct!||
I am looking at the Desmond and the Woodson jersey's that are signed and that also have the Heisman inscription. The Jersey's are remotely expensive but it has been the expense of having them framed that has really shocked me. It basically costs the same to frame the jersey as it does to buy the jersey. I did not expect that!
|5 years 25 weeks ago||Good Question||
Yes, it will be limited to football.
|5 years 32 weeks ago||Thanks to all of you for your||
Thanks to all of you for your valued advice! +1 to you all! I was also looking at paying about $350 for a single ticket around the 40yd line and pretty close to the field. Any thoughts on that price? As in too high or just about right? Thanks again for the advice!
|5 years 43 weeks ago||Thanks Tom! I wish Brandon||
Thanks Tom! I wish Brandon the best of luck. Tom, is there anybody on the recruiting "radar" that you see UM trying to get to fill Smith's spot? When I say "spot" I mean added depth at a position of need.
|5 years 43 weeks ago||Thanks Tom!||
Thanks for all the hard work and information that you bring to this forum Tom. I know a lot of us really appreciate your work and look forward to ANY TomVH posts!!!

Thanks for the link! I am on my wife's macbook and couldn't bring up the link!
|6 years 1 week ago||Thank you guys so much!!||
Thank you guys so much for the great info and suggestions. I was expecting a neg fest on my "Apple Cider" post but got some great info instead. Once I saw the first reference of "Captain Morgan" and cider I flipped out. That sounds like heaven in a cup! I will get to it right away!

Does Tate have any circumcisions on the docket for tomorrow?
|6 years 5 weeks ago||Thanks||
Thanks for the link and the information. I could understand that this could cause some tension between him and Michigan fan but I still can't understand the disdain that he seems to hold against UM. It must have gotten REAL nasty if he is still that pissed about what happened at the Mzone.
