Michigan South: The Miami Dolphins (a new recruiting weapon)

Color me a Dolphins fan!! (I haven't really had an NFL team since I was a kid; grew up and turned into a largely exclusively college fan...)

I know they're only 2-3, and a lot of you still think the Wildcat's a fad, but DAMN!

Henne looked great tonight, some absolutely key throws on the final 2 drives. Pat White, very limited, but as part of the Wildcat type sets, looked good too.

It was insanely awesome to watch the personnel changes and the defense's inability to keep up. The Jets looked like the old Ravens the 1st four games, not tonight!

This is what we need to use to recruit Florida even more. RR needs to buddy up to Stephen Ross (majority owner and an UM alum) and promote the crap out of this - from a how UM can translate to NFL success.

I truly believe this is not a "fad". I think we're going to see more and more of it invade the NFL. Soon, kids won't be talking about "wanting to play for a pro-style college" as much. I can't wait.

Let's keep this Michigan train rolling/improving (as we get beond having Fresh/Sophs dominate the 2-deep) and reap the rewards.

I like it. Maybe they can get a suite for recruits to hang in!

Oh, wait a minute, you were talking about recruiting for Michigan not the U. Cancel the thought, I'll call Luther Campbell back and put the kibosh on things.

They were also drooling about Jake Long and the offensive line in the last part of that game. Jon Gruden is in love with the Miami Dolphins,

And also no wonder Gruden had so many qbs in tampa, all he talked about that last drive was about how much he loved the fact that Miami kept on switching QB's... calling it, and I quote "the most exciting thing to ever happen to him" watching the QB's switch in and out

The Muck Wolverines!

I think the topic of college football changing the NFL is really interesting. It has for the longest time been the selection pressure from the NFL that largely shaped college football - kids wanted to play for offenses in college that mimicked offenses in the NFL. Then offenses like the spread started to consistently beat the pro-style offenses in college. Thus offenses in college have started to change, to adapt. Now we might be seeing offenses in the NFL adapting to look more like offenses in college. This may or may not be the case, but it is interesting to think about (well, for me at least).
