the timing of the meeting probably (but not definitely) means that he's at least willing to listen.  the staff already built a relationship with isaac's coaches and would understand if michigan no longer recruited him after he verbally committed to usc.  i bet usc's poor season, michigan's obvious need for a back, usc's other committments and poor short term outlook may have made isaac to have doubts.

Don't know how?  A backup plan never hurt anybody.  Tenn and Auburn without coaches and uncertain futures (probably even more loses headed their way).  That leaves Michigan, VT, Miami, and Oregon.  

Oregon: He has said he does not want to play in the spread.  Probably just wants to visit.

Miami: I hope he visits.  All 10 of their fans attending their games will really wow him.

VT: Close to home, could be a contender.

Michigan: One of the best OL classes in the county.  Pro style set. 5* incoming QB. Head coach with a few years at the very least. Tradition.  Future promise.

I wouldn't rule Michigan out.

I'm not arguing that. Michigan is by far the logical choice for Green. But that's not what makes a recruits decision. Some people seem to think he wants to stay in the South, and I tend to think that's the case. This late rekindling of things with Isaac just seems suggestive of that, to me. If there's some indication that Ty wanted to be contacted, that would redefine the situation. Otherwise, it just seems like the staff is hoping to cash in on KIffen's comparative failure, which seems uncharacteristic of Hoke' MO.

Could be a reflection of Fitz's long recovery more than Green' s choice. Starting job is IMMEDIATELY available for best RB.

Plus, USC could be a tire fire with shrinking roster and Kiffin's questionable status. Stanford, Oregon and UCLA are arguably the Pac front runners for the next 2-3 years.

Now this is the kind of post-OSU thread I can get behind.  I'm skeptical that it's going anywhere (until/unless we hear from Isaac), but this produces much happier thoughts than memories of our playcalling and offensive line play from yesterday.
