If I was a recuit, even a committed one, this whole fiasco would have me running far away. A wholly irrational love for the university would be the only thing that could overcome it.

I don't know if I'd say "least". As far as I see it, this season is surely lost, and Brady Hoke's regime with it. To me, those two things seem to be a done deal. I feel like all we have left is the future. A recruiting crater late in the predecessor's tenure helped do in Hoke, I can't imagine another one will do the next guy any favors.

Inevitable.  The only saving grace to this whole fiasco would be if someone (might not be Brandon at this point, which is fine with me,) has the sense to fire a lame duck coach before the bowl game this time, thus giving the new guy a fair chance to put the class back together.

Countdown to first post blaming negative posters and this blog for this news and not the shitstorm the recruits watched on Saturday and continuing through today.

I might have some eligibility left.  I am sure that there at least 13-14 other posters on this board that would suit up for the ole Maze and Blue. If loving Michigan is the only criteria, we would make a Recruiting Dream Class. Of course, at least in my case, we would have to make sure they have a defibrillator handy after I run down on kickoff coverage.

Who wouldn't look elsewhere? They committed to Hoke and a Michigan team that was supposed to be on the upswing. Hoke will be gone at the end of the season and instead of upswing, the program is cratering. They are generally not fans, they're kids who are looking at their future. Under Hoke, Michigan has been where talent goes to die in obscurity.
