Scenario at this stage and a pretty good deal for Mikey Weber to come into the class as the lone RB recruit. He would have two years with Issac and two years as the elder statesmen at a time our OL was becoming all Seniors and Juniors if he RS.

Seems people like focusing on the negative and ignoring anything positive:

One bit of good news for Michigan as far as this weekend is concerned, though, centers around the state's top prospect -- four-star wide receiver/defensive back Brian Cole (Saginaw Heritage).

Per, Cole will be visiting Michigan on Friday along with four-star quarterback pledge Alex Malzone -- who plans on showing Cole around campus and helping him get to know the finer points of the program.

Yeah I played for a season with the Sting under Stu. It was a pretty good way to "retire" from organized football. But yes, in the picture I saw Cole had a Michigan shirt and Michigan shorts on. From what I have heard around town it is down to OSU and Michigan which I don't think is that big of a surprise.

Of the 558 words in the English langauge that revolve around emotion 62% of them are negative.  In a review of literature of more than 200 articles regarding human behavior and perception one general principle was found..."Bad is stronger than good."  When people are shown photos of bad and good events, people view the bad longer.  People tend to spend closer attention to bad stuff, reflect on it more, and remember it longer across many domains in life.  Unfortunately it is human to pay more attention to the bad than the good in about anything in life.

I put him in the gone bin the day it became clear he was as (maybe more) tied to Borges than Michigan. The big "get to know Nuss" visit seemed pretty quiet. Then the osu visit/rumors/facts came about. I'm truly not expecting him to be a player here and haven't for a while. Would like to be wrong but I see osu all the way and, oddly, don't care (with all respect to the kid). Stopped feeling anything toward recruiting a while back. I see it here but don't care like I once did. It's jaded me to CFB.

I used to follow recruiting, but now all I can think is "What's the point?" When you have a staff as poor at developing talent as Hoke and Co. and at least half the class decommits anyway, why even bother?

it. He had a conflict with his high school team's practice schedule which has been known for a while so this isn't really a surprise.

He's not attending Ohio State's Friday Night Lights either.

According to the interwebs, Harris isn't going because of his High School team camp... the kid has a good reason... his current team.

just putting "/s" at the end of a stupid comment shouldn't excuse it. It wasn't sarcastic, it was just stupid. Yeah, there are idiots out there that make ridiculous comments, but we don't need to be reminded of that with a "/s" comment.


July 22nd, 2014 at 7:41 AM ^

Sarcastic or not, this d-bag wrote that a kid and recruit should go f$&@ himself. I thought we learned our lesson about posting personal things about recruits. If a mod see this, you are likely gonzo, bro.

So the kid is admirably fulfilling his commitment to his current program instead of jumping to fun recruiting events in Columbus and Ann Arbor, but my comment wasn't sarcastic? Please explain that to me.
