Maybe we should just give Gary a break? I mean, it is Dwight Buycks we're talking about here...
|25 weeks 4 days ago||But on the bright side...||
We finally scored some points in overtime!
|26 weeks 5 days ago||Nice write-up, Ace||
I enjoyed reading this. That is all.
|29 weeks 3 days ago||Well this was certainly a pleasant surprise||
I'm pumped that we are pulling some kids from Florida. Hopefully we can keep expanding our recruiting footprint down there. Welcome aboard, Shelton!
|29 weeks 3 days ago||I have to admit...||
I never really had a good feeling about Michigan's chances with him. He just didn't seemed to give off positive vibes throughout his recruitment. I'm glad that it's over now, and that he went Blue. The cherry on top is that it was a head-to-head win over UCLA. And wow--that's one heck of an offer list!
|29 weeks 4 days ago||That's what was so weird||
That's what was so weird about this one. In the past few days there were a bunch of predictions made with him going to Michigan. Then, yesterday and today, all the momentum seemed to go Georgia's way.
Oh well. Best of luck to the kid.
|29 weeks 4 days ago||What a strange recruitment||
Final Crystal Ball poll results (out of 57 predictions): 28% Michigan, 26% Georgia, 16% OSU (YTOSU), 16% OU & 11% Ole Miss. The Crystal Ball isn't the end all to be all, but he sure surprised a lot of people with his committment.

So did anyone else see the photo of KLS, catch the word "officially" in the title and think for a second that maybe he had committed to Michigan? No such luck, but it's good to hear things seem to be trending well.

When Hoke and his staff came on board 3 years ago we had just endured perhaps the lowest point in the history of the program. We were desperate for a change, desperate to return to the glory days of what we knew Michigan football was and what we hoped it could be once more. Hoke said all the right things and the team had a massive turnaround in year 1, especially the defense. As a Michigan fan, I couldn't say enough good things about Hoke and the direction he was taking the program, and I had no doubt in my mind that we were on the verge of another golden era for Michigan football. Then Hoke started bringing in top recruits from all over the country. The man could do no wrong. Fast forward to today. Our team is an embarrassment, our season is in shambles, and as fans we are trying to figure out what the heck is wrong with our team. My knowledge of football is pretty limited, so don't have much to say about that. But for me, the worst part is seeing the expectations I had built up (and we as a fan community had built up) these past 3 years for the program be shattered in such a sobering fashion, week after week after week. Maybe Hoke and his staff need more time. Maybe they have been exposed as a bunch of good guys who love this program but don't have what it takes to get it to where it needs to be. I'm a Michigan fan for life, but right now my faith in this coaching staff and the direction of this program is severely damaged. Thank goodness basketball season is here.

with GRIII, I wouldn't mind trying to steal him to add to the 2012 class! Ha. Wishful thinking.
|3 years 24 weeks ago||I totally agree...||
...with you about recruiting the right kids. Kids will be kids and make mistakes, but it sure helps to have high character ones to begin with. I am really pleased to see this as a priority of the current staff.
|3 years 24 weeks ago||It's pretty phenominal...||
...that we can even talk about Michigan getting a number 2 seed as a realistic possibility. Who would have thought our boys would finish the season 23-8 with no Darius Morris. It truly has been one heck of a year and I can't wait to see how far this team will go in the BTT and into March Madness. Go Blue!
