Matt Dorsey and use of the terms "top programs"

Submitted by CincyBlue on July 17th, 2009 at 3:08 PM

As I was reading the Freep web page today, I came across this statement:

A few months ago, Davis was waiting for his first offer. Now he's garnered offers from some of the top programs in the nation, including Michigan State, Iowa, Wisconsin and Kansas.

Top Programs?

Since Carl Davis is a 6"5 300 lbs DT does Michigan have any interest at all?

those four schools most people would consider solid programs. Top 30ish, give or take. All in the upper half of their conferences for the most part. All with good coaching staffs in place, though lot of posters around here think Beliema's [sp?] overmatched. I'm still in wait-and-see on that call, and giving Alvarez the benefit of the doubt.

Bottom line, I don't think Dorsey's implying "elite" here. Good for the kid, going from no offers to solid Big 10 and Big 12 program interest. Have not heard of a Michigan courtship.
