The 11W reaction thread is short but has some great bits of schadenfreude.

My favorite 

"Another O-lineman? At what point do you have enough? Reminds me of the Detroit Lions when they grabbed WR after WR year after year and ended up with just that for a few years. It's worked out now but they can stay for more than 4-5 seasons. Beginning to think Hoke wants headlines as much as anything. That's why he grabs the Ohio guys and then Mgobluh makes a huge deal of it. Good luck to him he'll need it."

Apologies for the blockquotes fail.

Arguably, we had the 2nd best OL line in the country for '12. At this point, any other school pulling in a better OL line class for '13 may be, literally, impossible. There may not be 5 available OLs better than what we've already lined up. It's just now hitting me just how impressive this is. If I'm Ohio or anyone else in the B1G, I'm thinking two things: 1) get whatever success we can now before these guys start rolling us, and 2) come up with a strategy for dealing with this (not sure what that is--stock up on DL studs? Negative recruiting? Go for broke trying to pull commits away?)

Holy schnikes! I leave the board for two hours to do some work, come back and BAM!, we have another commit. I'm going to keep working until just before the basketball game and then check back in. At this rate, I expect to see commits from Isaac and Levenberry . . . at least.

I can hear the Ohio fans down playing this by saying "we didn't want him, or he would have chosen us". I bet Hoke gets their attention when Michigan rolls them in the shoe.

why is everyone so in love with Ty Isaac? Have you seen his highlight tape? He never has to put his shoulder down he runs upright, yes he is fast  but dont we want someone who has proved they can hit a linebacker and keep going. I understand with this great of an o-line haul that he will never have to worry about getting tackled, but in all reality he will. He is the polar opposite of a mike hart. Why dont we turn more attention to a guy like DeVeon Smith or Derrick Green those guys have great speed and can break through tacles unlike what ty isaac has shown by FAR. I'll love if Ty if we get him to commit, BUT come on people the proof is in the pudding.

As you read this don't forget about the part saying I will love Ty if he comes to michigan. He just doesn't show the pile driving ability that other prospects show. Just check the tape and see for yourselves.

Wow. This is unbelievable I try to refrain from posting in such threads, but this is looking bad. It's like USC recruiting against Little Sisters of the Poor. Hoke is absolutely having his way with us right now. Even when Lloyd was here and we had JLS, we at least got these kids to give us a look. What Hoke is doing to Dantonio on the recruiting trail is absolute murder.

Sparty site on Rivals needs to get with it. Theyr footbal recruiting section has a visitor's list for their junior day, headlined by a big picture of someone named Patrick Kugler, and his name in bold print. Wah-wahhhhhh.

no joke its hoke

Shane Morris said he is decommitting. He said he put out a highlight video of him running and now he see's he will never get to do that at UM. Damn oline class.



edit. i guess my post come in pairs also. sorry

Looks like Coach Dantonio should have listened at that highschool coaches conference a couple of weeks ago when Coach Hecklinski was giving his spiel on how M recruits! Could have learned a thing or two...
