Good player, but definitely not in the same category of talent as Jack. Big, strong kid that plays a physical game. Not going to provide a lot of offense. Moves pretty well for his size and should be a solid defenseman.

Lewan was involved in another bar fight, and wasn't the stupidest involved, which is genuinely frightening: http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nfl/titans/2014/07/21/zach-mettenberger-sucker-punch-nashville-bar-restaurant/12957301/

I doubt accelerating becomes a huge trend, because frankly, there's very few players good enough to merit it, and it's still not easy to do(If they could have for Kyle Connor, I'm sure they would have). College hockey has moved in the direction of older players; not younger ones.
Where it does happen a decent amount is players in a situation like Jack Eichel or Shane Gersich this past year, who are late birthdays and will age out of the NTDP a year before they would be scheduled to graduate high school. In those cases, they generally start the acceleration process two years out, so it's a little more manageable.

No doubt Werenski is a big pick-up, but as far as "recruiting picking up"....Michigan basically had to complete a Hail Mary at the last minute after losing out on recruit after recruit after recruit on the blue line all last season.
They're also in a position where they need a 17-year-old to come in and be a savior because there's very little talent on defense otherwise. Downing and DeJong should be better, but it's a stretch to expect them to be top pairing guys at this point. Outside of the slam-dunk local kids like Trouba and Merrill, Michigan hasn't had much luck in recruitig top quality defenseman(if you want to include Bennett, which is a stretch, that was ix years and a different staff ago).

Why were they down 2-0 in the first place against a country the size of the metro Columbus area?

Do you know much about Crey Bankes? I think he's in that 2016 class.

He's a bigger kid, defensive defenseman. Not really a top pairing guy, but should be a solid second or third pairing defenseman. Started to grow into his body a little more this year and had a really good season. Probably up in the air whether he comes in 2015 or 2016 depending on Michigan's needs.

It doesn't really count if it's some phony organization like the "police" that catch him. You only get the really severe punishments if the NCAA catches you, since they know what is best for these young men.

Former Michigan goalie Steve Shields makes a nice appearance in that video as well.

Personally, I'd split the difference between 3 and 16. The offense should be better, but they're going to be even worse on the blue line without Bennett, and that's saying something given how bad that group was last year.

Take it easy on Amir. It's hard to catch the ball when the coaches are always on your dick.

Good career move. Nobody lives happier, longer lives than pro wrestlers.

Don't bother replying. He doesn't read them.
EDIT: Damn. Beaten to the punch.

Not officially a Michigan commit, but Max Jones seems to basically be between Michigan and the OHL, and he went 18th overall(which is a significant drop) but was picked by London, and is taking a visit there soon. That's the big one for Michigan fans to watch.

Your average high school senior was 5 years from being born when the Fab Five played. That's about as real to them as MSU football's success prior to racial integortion.

The University of South Dakota beat Minnesota two years after leaving D-2 for FCS though.

Can't speak for the others, but Nebraska-Omaha and UMass-Lowell don't have football programs, so they're only ranked a couple spots ahead of Purdue.

Gotcha. Though "consensus 2nd-team" seems like a weird honor.

Wait....who didn't put Burke on their team last year?

Are there links to these? Because I've got a never-ending sack full of downvotes for Derrick Walton/Darius Morris guy.

Don't Compher and Copp play PK? They should have higher blocked shot numbers.
The eyeball test is likely correct though. It's best for both sides to move on.

That's hilarious that the 7-year-old Malaysian girl that sewed that on can't spell. Hope she lost her 13 cents an hour over that one.

The athletic department can't separate pay grades between sports? Does Carol Hutchins top assistant make $900k a year like Doug Nussmeier?

Isn't it more terrifying to gaze upon Tom and realize, given the astronomical probabilities involved in bringing us to this moment, that *we* may be our own most advanced form?

John Buccigross spoke at St. Lawrence University about a month ago and came out wearing that outfit. I guess that explains why. He probably couldn't get out of it after filming.
