I wish this was a joke but this involves the NCAA.  I can't believe its someone's job to decide whether "cake icing" is considered "decorative items" under NCAA bylaw 13.6.7.9.

M commits aim for top class over individual rankings

M commits aim for top class over individual rankings

Submitted by jwschultz on April 19th, 2013 at 12:34 PM

MGoBoard Hero (judging from the available user tags?) and security blanket TomVH has a great piece on WolverineNation (ESPN Insider, obviously, but seriously get the Magazine when it's on sale to get the year of Insider) about Michigan commits preferring recognition for their entire recruiting class as a whole, rather than high individual rankings.  Probably a good call for a group that's courting the #2 and #4 guys out there, but as TomVH asserts, 

[T]he commitments have already taken grasp of Bo Schembechler's famous quote: The team, the team, the team. 

(The class, the class, the class?)

Pretty impressive that five guys who have been hearing that they're each among the top 150 HS players in the country can keep that in perspective and focus on the success of the whole team. It's easy to love the way the staff recruits!
