Leaders And Best

Mike Farrell is the one who broke this story and clearly has an in with the family.  He has maintained FSU all along, and still now he is predicting FSU.  I am trying to stay optimistic, but I think we should all be preparing for the worst here.  I don't think he would put this out there unless he was certain especially given the amount of grief Michigan fans have given him.  I think the only reason he hasn't made his prediction more defiinitive is to give Levenberry his moment on Tuesday.

guess is : if u had to guess on Levenberry, which way do u think he goes??

Huh.  He spent a lot of time at FSU, but was more recently at UM (he was here for the spring game, right?).  I guess this is good for us?

Is it possible Hoke told him that he needed to decide soon or Hoke would chase other LB prospects?

Totally agreed that it would't be pressuring him, but I don't think that's what Hoke is saying in the first place.

As the poster above mentions, we would only take another LB if it was Levenberry. If he doesn't commit, we're done pursuing LBs as we have more pressing needs.

But do we know that?  I know that's been reported to be the case, but it's not like we heard Hoke say it, and even if it was once the case, those things tend to change.  Maybe the coaches have come across another LB or two that they like as much as EJ?  Maybe they feel there will be more scholarships, and they'd like to take a 3rd LB no matter what. 

This stuff is very fluid, and not all of the "facts" that get reported are 100% true.

Yeah that's a good point, my "facts" are not so much facts, just the feel I've been getting from reading the exact same sources as you.

The one thing that convinces me though is that Dorian Daniels and Anzalone were told to move on. Those are high caliber guys that we would have been lucky to have in any other year where LB wasn't so stocked.

Let's be honest here.  You don't think Hoke pressures these kids to commit simply because he is our coach.  He has strung together two amazing recruiting classes.  Let's not pretend he doesn't know how to lean a little. 

That's not a bad trait for a coach, especially one that seems to be so honestly caring about his players.  He's still a head coach though, and even though he coaches at Michigan, his poop does not smell like roses nor does it shimmer like gold...

Well, he did say his visit was a 10 out of 10, so it's not like we're out of it, but he did just spend a week in Tallahasee.

Didn't comment when I saw this monstrosity last night, but I was literally awakened at 3 a.m. with night terrors which could only have been the result of the many minutes I spent staring at this little abomination.

There are occasions when one is literally terrified by what they see on the internet---this is one of them.
