Staff can devote 90% of energy to him now that LM3 and Laquon are clearly gone. Closing with DD, Delano, Hunt and DG will make this a great foundation class.

The staff can then focus on adding some pure playmakers (CB, WR, RB, FS) in 2014 along with more depth across the board.

"here and there" before spring football planning goes into overdrive and then a little more in the 12 or so weeks before late July.

The changes in NCAA rules, texting, earlier commits, 7-on-7 explosion - the coaches are consumed with recruiting and hardly ever unplug. I would guess the UM staff works 80+ hours every week with home time & vacation regularly interrupted with calls/texts/etc.

The post on 247 was just edited to include 4 PM as the announcement time as well (per Green's Facebook apparently) so there is this as well. Looks like I shall be tuning out at work early that day to be in the accompanying announcement thread.

Green shows up in a Michigan hat, ready to pick Michigan......only to take off his shirt, reveal an Ohio jersey and proceed to clock Brady Hoke with a steel chair.  If that chain of events was to transpire, I'm pretty sure this site would crash and I would never watch college football again.  Oh yeah, I suppose Green would have to be arrested for assault too.  

Ummmmm....I think I need to stop talking.  Maybe I should sit these next couple plays out.
