Dee Hart listed again on Rivals?

Submitted by qed on December 4th, 2010 at 8:15 PM

I thought a few days ago Rivals dropped Dee Hart from Michigan's commit list...and now he is back on again.  Does Rivals know something we don't?

Not that any of this matters except to give me a chance to say I dislike rampant speculation. We will know about Dee Hart when he is physically sitting in class.

Pretty sure Dee hart wasn't recruited to be a power running back.  Stephen Hopkins is our power back. That is why Dee is ranked as an all purpose back by the recruiting sites. He is more of a slasher than a straight forward runner.

When I logged in today the first thing I did when see the earlier post on his possible recommit was go to the rivals site and see what they had.  Nice to see it back to Michigan instead of Alabama right now.

As opposed to when he is metaphorically sitting in class? (I know what you mean, I just felt like being a smart-ass for some reason.)

I have heard of 'sitting-in' on classes.  That doesn't mean someone is actually in class.  I want the warm fuzzy feeling of looking over in class and seeing him physically there.  Howeva, that would be difficult since I have graduated some time ago (unless I was a stalking freak).

Not to be go there right now, but isn's anyone worried that Dee will be another Vinnie Smith?  His high lights look awful familar...just saying!

I was a little worried at first when I had seen his highlights.  But when I examined them more closely, I think Dee Hart's explosion out of his cuts are phenomenal and exactly what you want to see out of a great back.

This is getting ridiculous - Brandon should step up and confirm that RR will be back.  We are an improved 7-5 and going to a New Years Day bowl game.  He's gonna fire the guy?  Come on.

It is thinking like that that leads me to believe a lot of this is simply coming down to DB's pride. He said he isn't going to decide until the season's over so dammit! he isn't going to decide until the season is over!!

I have listened to all this DB love and posts about the undying faith so many have in the guy, but I have to say, with each passing day my faith in the guy diminishes.

This is the first evidence we have in which to judge DB as an AD.. None of his past really correlates that well to being an AD. In this instance, I can't see how anyone thinks this timeline isn't a massive mistake. Beyond this, no one can point to anything to say "remember when DB did this and everything worked out....just have faith". He hasn't done anything to this point to warrant that faith.

To say that he isn't wielding to the bitching of fans and media is drastically understating what is going on here. Due to the uncertainty of the situation we are losing ground with current targets and it looks like we may possibly lose some of those already considered to be in the fold because of the way this has been handled. To say this is only about fans and media is absurd.

I am a Cardiologist but have many friends in the business world and I can say that there aren't many CEO's that don't recognize that there will be times when situations dictate that you need to abandon what you thought was the correct course of action and move in another direction. Changing your stance or gameplan because of a change in situation doesn't make you a weak leader, it makes you a smart one.

The biggest mistake he made was providing a concrete timeline for his evaluation, there was really no need to do that with anyone outside the program. He has a chance to put his pride aside and do what is in the best interest of the program now, even though it goes against his original plan. If he can't do that, I will say he has made two monumental mistakes in the short time he has been the AD at UM.

I am not saying DB won't turn out to be a great AD, but I am questioning all the faith people have in him considering the evidence we have to go on thus far.
