Heard the name Commitmas being thrown out there...though I guess that only covers half of it.
Honestly though, commits from 24 stars in one day?! Has a Saturday in February ever been more giving?

I haven't been encouraged by anything we've heard from Jake Fisher since he de-committed. For whatever reason, I don't think he'll be going blue, and if he does it will just be a pleasant surprise.
Now, I know people have mixed feelings on using the term "Michigan Man," but this whole courting process Fisher has driven over the past few weeks has turned me off to the kid a little bit. To be clear, it is his decision and he should go wherever he's most comfortable. But with the enthusiasm surrounding the new staff and the dedication to get back to being MICHIGAN, it's starting to look like Jake was more of a "Rich Rod kid" than a Michigan one. If he's not excited about the brand of football that will be played under the new regime, it's quite possible that he's better suited elsewhere. (You don't need me to point out that the favorite now seems to be Oregon, which just happens to run an offense quite similar to the RR offense Jake originally committed to.)
Wish him the best of luck regardless, and I hope he surprises me and picks UM. But it doesn't look like things are heading that way. Regardless, Hoke-A-Mania rages on.
