Darian Cooper Eliminates Michigan

Submitted by Denarded on December 14th, 2010 at 8:47 PM

According to Scout.com, Darian Cooper, the defensive tackle from DeMatha HS in Maryland, has elminated Michigan out of his final 4. With Martin becoming a senior next year this makes Danny O'Brien one of Michigan's top, if not the top priority in the 2012 class.

I'm trying to be positive thru all of this....But for the love of god, the defensive situation seems to he getting worse with every top D Target dropping us left & right.

I understand the experience of youngsters this year will help, but we need a Chuck Woodson to even make the D respectable...

Can I just hear some good news please!

As much as I like  our current coach and staff this is a real fiasco.  Landing at least one DT should have been a TOP priority for this class. I'm an old fashioned kind of guy. You win this game by fortifying the trenches. That's always been the secret and its the reason why OSU has been kicking our ass these past couple of years.  It's incredible to me that we can be in this predicament.

I am wondering what you are basing it on? First off, no one knows if there is even going to be a coaching change. Second, there is no evidence that even if we do pick up JH that there is going to be some magical transformation that will lead recruits to suddenly drop there current commitments and join our team.

The idea that this will all work out for the best gets harder to believe each passing day.

Look, we know it's going to happen.  We're not going to hear anything definitive until after the bowl game.  So rather than fretting about it, all you can do right now is sit back and let it happen.

I don't understand why people are freaking out in early December.  Rodriguez pulled in a pretty solid recruiting class when the transition took place in 2007-08, and he's shown the ability to close over the last few classes.  And if a coaching change is made, who knows what will happen?

Signing Day is almost two months away.  That means there's about 16% of the recruiting cycle left.  Relax.

but I am not one who is very good at just sitting back, it is one of my many flaws. When I care as much about something as I do this football team, it is nearly impossible for me to be calm and let things play out when I can see no possible reason for it to be happening.

Now I am not saying there isn't a reason that will become evident in the future, but at this point it is escaping almost every fan of this team.

Good council though, I just wish I was the type of person that could take it.
