More Dong Punches From the Army Game

Submitted by mGrowOld on January 8th, 2011 at 3:54 PM

1. Dee Hart selects Alabama

2. Hart explains that the reason he is doing so is because of MIchigan's coaching change PLUS his "close relationship with Saban"

3. Hart wins Army MVP award

Can you imagine how fired up excited this board would be right now if Hart was still on board?   Sigh.......

Even when we had our old coaching staff I got the feeling Dee was going to eventually pick Alabama.  The season ended badly for Michigan and there was just way too much opportunity for negative recruiting.  I don't see how the Dee Hart saga was going to end well no matter who was coaching Michigan.

I still doubt Hart would be coming here even if RR had kept his job. The kid was swaying back and forth between Florida, Michigan and Alabama during the whole month of December. Frost is a much bigger loss, and I still think he'll end up here fwiw, especially if Miles is the next coach.

Because of the enormous amount of negativity and uncertainty surrounding Coach Rodriguez the whole month of December.

I'm glad Dee made himself relatively clear.  There's little doubt that Coach Rodriguez had won his commitment.  And that subsequent events lost it.  I'd rather know that, than be left in doubt.

We would be pretty damn fired up!  I remember a few years ago watching the army game and seeing Bryce Brown just tear shit up.  I distinctly thought to myself how great would it be for us to have Bryce Brown. Does anyone know where Bryce Brown is now?  

I hate to say this but losing Frost means a lot more to me than losing Dee Hart.  That may sound like sacrilege but the reality is break out stars at running back are not uncommon (Marcus Lattimore, Dion Lewis, Mike Hart).  Dee Hart may end up being great, but game changing linebackers are hard to find.  Losing Frost really hurts....

Having said that, I don't know if we have truly lost anyone (except Hart and Zettel - they are permanently gone).  If we hire a coach, we will get a few back.  There is some talent on this team and as long as it doesn't transfer, we will be in decent shape.

those saying Dee Hart wasn't coming to Michigan even if RR stayed. There is no evidence at all to support that. He was Blue until the speculation of firing became rampant.

Anyone know who @incarceratedbob is?  Keeps twittering that Miles is in deep negotiatins with Michigan, lawyers involved, giving ultimatums to LSU about contract extension, playing both sides.  Is this just someone having fun?

Here is a reenactment of how I felt when Dee put on the Bama hat. Try to guess which one is me.

SUCKED!!! Next time why don't we evaluate sooner so we aren't playing a guessing game with recruits. I would have like the today's high school player of the game to have committed to Michigan...
