Tennessee is not recruiting well just because they got 18 dudes

|3 hours 17 min ago||Welcome aboard Mr. Steuber||
A lot to like here. An OT which we really need. 6-6 and 285, so he can grow into a 300+ plus guy pretty easily. Sounds like he's smart and is a good student. And 17 offers is pretty dang good.
|23 hours 19 min ago||+1 to you BoFan||
for your reference to the great Coach Bo Scare with A&M. I remember it well.
|1 day 37 sec ago||Well, I guess in this case it's a good thing||
Warde is the AD vs. Bo. With Bo, taking a job with ASU was a one-way ticket.
|1 day 5 hours ago||Yup||
It makes this year's recruiting class at OL all the more important. We need a handful of guys who can play early, even if in a backup role.

Their pounds will be like Confederate money now. Good for those of us planning to travel over there though. My daughter's tuition in London just got cheaper.
|1 day 23 hours ago||Dog days of summer? Really?||
If nothing else, not the best thread title. Summer started 2 days ago and is just getting going.
|2 days 4 hours ago||Looks like Brian is not bullish||
on Gentry seeing the field this season. I really hope he doesn't get lost in the TE shuffle and can really make a contribution at some point. With his size, intelligence, and athleticism, it would seem to be a waste not to use him.
|2 days 5 hours ago||That's my guess||
The guy has been here a very long time and worked under Bo and the coaches that followed him as you pointed out. This is probably a transition for him into retirement. Well deserved too.
|3 days 6 hours ago||That's what would make getting||
Nico Collins sweet as hell. Saban would look something like this:
|3 days 6 hours ago||I agree - they need a number of OL||
in this class who can play early in their careers. So, getting some really talented, physically-ready players will be very important. Slaton definitely sounds like one of those dudes.
|3 days 19 hours ago||Game over||
We're not good enough in thus game. Oh well.
|4 days 6 hours ago||Yes||
I mainly wear either logo polo shirts or sweatshirts. The jerseys just seem too expensive to be worth it to me. I might consider it though if they drop the price of bottled water.
|4 days 9 hours ago||Looks like your negative point total||
is about to get a little larger.
|4 days 23 hours ago||I don't know if it's so much||
the kids are paying a lot of attention to the whole SEC/NCAA crap as it is they just feed off the energy Coach Harbaugh and his staff exude. I believe they're attracted to a program where they sense a lot of positive energy, a staff that genuinely cares about where they end up long term, and knows what they're doing on the football field.
|5 days 1 hour ago||The latter||
As long as they have a monopoly on regulating college sports and the truckloads of money keep pouring in, they can sit there like the smug assholes they are and do nothing. However, if at some point some group of schools band together, say "enough", and threaten to leave the NCAA, then they will start to care.
|5 days 2 hours ago||As long as it sorts out, that's||
the important thing. Michigan really needs some guys who will be able to play early in their careers, especially at tackle and center.
|6 days 2 hours ago||I really hope someone picks him up||
A healthy Jake Long can help just about any team.
|1 week 1 day ago||Hell, Pitino will probably||
be hired by the NCAA to head up their ethics committee.
|1 week 1 day ago||Meh||
Doesn't matter. Plus, there's still another season of football to settle who's #1.
I will take Dylan McCaffrey any day over any other QB right now. Sports Illustrated did a great article on his brother Christian a month ago, that also provides a lot of insight into his family, upbringing, and athletic lineage. There's also some good bits in there about Dylan. Great read:
|1 week 1 day ago||Agree||
Hopefully though, his campus visit and all the academic presentations will help him see the light and Go Blue.
|1 week 2 days ago||I approve||
|1 week 2 days ago||Also what killed OL depth was||
losing 4 out of the 6 guys in the epic 2013 class. That is what will haunt us somewhat in the next few seasons.
|1 week 2 days ago||Agree||
Those are several "big" red flags that warrant walking away - quickly.
|1 week 2 days ago||It seems like the ghost of Alex Legion||
lives on on this site. Nonetheless, funny.
|1 week 3 days ago||Offensive Tackle is such a critical position in this||
class, Michigan can't afford to whiff on getting several top guys. I'm really, really hoping to see some positive news in this area soon. But, it appears patience will need to be the order of the day here (which I don't have enough of unfortunately).
|1 week 3 days ago||I agree SS will likely be where he helps||
the team the most. But, heck if they try him at RB and he kicks ass, move him there. Or better yet, play both!
|1 week 3 days ago||Dang, that starting 4 would be||
extremely difficult to run against, let alone pass. Especially when you add in all the likely blitzes. I can't wait to see how this defense turns out.
|1 week 4 days ago||I'm with you||
O-line is the one position group where Michigan most needs to build up where we match the Ohio States and Alabamas of college football. Of the last two classes, really Bredeson is the only guy you can really say is elite talent. And after the 2013 class implosion, I share your heebie jeebies.
|1 week 4 days ago||These types of media exercises are always||
going to be skewed toward players/coaches of later years because their readers/viewers don't remember anyone from the "olden days" (like Fielding Yost for example). That being said, there's no way Tom Harmon can't be on the mountain for Michigan. He was so good he could play today and still do really well. But, I'd go with Yost, Harmon, Bo, and Woodson overall.
|1 week 5 days ago||SRK's points are well-taken though||
The latter part of RR's OL recruits were insufficient and left Michigan with a significant void Hoke had to try and fix quickly. 2012's class was solid, and 2013 was great. But, that latter class has been a big bust with 4 of the 6 gone. This is why Michigan has been struggling to get back to a stable group of OL spread pretty evenly across all 4 classes. I think until this situation is finally fixed, Michigan will struggle to reach it's full potential under the Harbaugh regime. We're getting there, but this 2017 class will be a huge key IMO.
