Don't want to reveal too much because I respect the rules despite my ambivalence toward the no paywalled info rule, but it sounds like Hoke owes Peppers a non-violation training table dinner when he gets to AA.

Speaking from a legal perspective, the rule is nonexistent bullshit. Hot news is good while it's hot, and you can't copyright it. The people pay for the right to hear it first. The value is in that short time after the news breaks. In the modern age, this value doesn't last that long.

From an unwritten rule, respect and mgoblog preference rule, it makes sense. But they can't punish you for it. This blog can ban you, but I mean the pay sites can't do anything but ban you.

Jabrill told him to try to get up here. There's a 7-on-7 in Cleveland Fournette is going to and he's going to try to come up to Michigan while he's there. We can all thank Jabrill (and pretty much only Jabrill) for that

It really is **all** Peppers doing work here. The coaches were recruiting Fournette early in the process, but pretty much gave up a month or two before Peppers' commitment. Then Peppers dropped, immediately began hitting up Fournette (along with a number of other tippy-top guys) on twitter, and the first "Fournette wants to visit Michigan" stories started popping up not long after that.

Awesome if he comes on campus.  Would be surprised if he joined UM just because it feels a bit late in the process, but who knows.

Seriously, though, seriously. Seriously. DG taking snaps with Fournette, Green, and Norfleet in the backfield. That would be a nightmare to defend, especially if they went Flexbone or just huddled with that and then went 4-wide with Fournette and Norfleet in the slots. AHHHHH WHY DID YOU MAKE ME THINK ABOUT THIS?!?!?!? THIS WILL NEVER HAPPEN.

Hand in a heartbeat. Great running backs are due in big part to a great offensive line. Put an average 2-star guy behind an Alabama-esque offensive line and he'll still have a 1000 yd season, at least. And what do you think Hoke's been recruiting for?

We don't have anyone on our roster right now like Hand. We don't have a stud on our defensive line who can take games over by himself and put pressure on the QB even if he's double-teamed. That's Hand for you in a nutshell. Not to take away from Fournette; he's a game changer. But Hand is a game changer that doesn't need to rely on another part of the team to be effective.
