MOAR ESPN!!! UM "in the drivers seat" for Hand and Peppers...

Again, title says it pretty much says it all.  Rundown of the 'top ten' recruiting battles.

A bit discouraging to see how many of the players have interest only in Southern schools.  Pretty emblematic of why the B10 is a pretty weak conference right now. 

 

OTOH, very nice to see Michigan feature prominently with two of the top guys in the country.

I'm taking with this a grain of salt, but the fact two high-profile recruits have UM in their top list is encouraging.  I'd be very content with a 1-for-2 result.

There are a lot of really weird downvotes in this thread.  It's like a Mongolian horde came through and shot everyone who said something suggesting Hand likes anyone but Michigan.

That's hardly a new phenomenon around here. At any given time there's a healthy percentage of MGoBloggers who will instantly downvote any comment that doesn't say Michigan is the bestest most awesomest and purtiest school in the history of college athletics and that all elite players have UM as their first choice. It's like being in middle school, but unless Brian & Co. make some fundamental changes to this ridiculous comment rating system, nothing will change.

I still don't understand the point stuff. I've posted on this site for three years and still don't have enough points to start a thread. I post from my phone never from a computer so maybe that's the reason. However, you are right about posters. They don't tolerate anything but positive blue even if your not even bring negative. Just question something and you get bombed.

I don't know how to start a thread on the app, but if you look on the top left of your screen on either a mobile browser or on your computer, you'll see where it says "GoBluePhil". Under that is a tab that says "create content" and you select diary or forum topic as an original post.

It's still shocking to see that two top ten recruits are seriously considering us. I wonder what interest we will get after having stellar seasons the next three years.
