Kind of hope he reconsiders, but probably just wishful thinking

On Ty Isaac from 247Sports board (Barton Simmons):

Gerry and I are very impressed with Ty Issac. The type of kid that will be a huge asset even If he never lines up in the backfield.

Really think Ty Isaac may have the best, most natural hands of anyone here.

Even when the story gets fever pitched and even in a fluff piece like that one at SBnation, Laquon has been pretty consistent:

He will commit after he takes a few visits, namely OkSU. I wouldn't be surprised to learn that this weekend's goings-on apropos David Dawson and the UF visit he wanted to take (but now will not after speaking with Hoke) had an impact on Laquon wanting to be more steadfast than impulsive.

He's still "Michigan's to lose" but it's pretty clear he's going to take at least a little more time. As he damned sure should.

-- Shane and the Land Sharks down 20-6 now in 2nd half. UNC RB commit Ryan Switzer is killing them with 3 TDs.

Tre Bell drops an interception on an overthrown long pass from Shane Morris. Next play, Keanu Neal makes the pick.

Bateman to Switzer for another TD. This time, the little guy outjumps Tre Bell in the end zone. It's 20-6 Super Bad.

-- Shane gets them in for TD but no conversion so down 20-19 to Super Bad. May be all she wrote for this game.

Morris to Howard again but no good on the conversion. Land Sharks down 20-19. Cooper Bateman, who has been sharp, gets the ball back now

And looks like Super Bad is gonna knock off the Land Sharks to move onto semis and put Land Sharks in losers bracket...

Land Sharks in the loser's bracket. Does this mean they're out of contention for the championship? Will we still be able to watch them at primetime?
