Theyes distract. And for the record there are some absolutely beautiful women in Ann Arbor. Michigan doesn't center their visits around women like many southern schools so hopefully his judgement isn't clouded. Academics, football, alumni...those are the things that matter. Every school has women. Not suprised but a little concerned if this is in fact a real concern for this young man. We kids infatuated with beating Ohio State not ones worried about what the girls look like. I hope this talented young man is the former.

The proportion of attractive women in the city you decide to play college football shouldn't even be in the top 5 reasons why you would decide on a program.  That being said, you are correct...there are some attractive women in AA, but dear Lord have you spent time in the South!?  You can't throw a dead cat without hitting a beautiful woman.  Having lived in MI and in the South, it isn't even close.  But Tarik if you read this, disregard EVERYTHING I just wrote and GO BLUE!!!

But I'd be happy with just DPJ and Nico. It seems like we could use the spots for the OL and DL because there are so many commits and still more offers. If we have to take a 3rd (or 4th because Hawkins) I would like Martin. I love the slot guys who catch anything near them.

Again, the staff knows best, but I'm not going to freak out if we miss on Black.

Yes but in the slot we already have Perry who has proven his worth, a budding star in McDoom, and the yet to be determined Nate Johnson. All are back for the next two years minimum barring unforeseen circumstances. Black, DPJ, are outside guys to replace the outgoing Darboh and Chesson. I think Black would be of more use than Martin in my personal opinion especially with the similar Hawkins (assuming he's not a safety). Plus the slot in this offense isn't exactly a HUGE need with all the TE and FB options we already have.

Nico is also an outside guy based on size and skill set. I do think Michigan will get all three as well, but again that's just my opinion. For what it's worth I believe that Black will redshirt for us next season if he does sign here. This is completely a baseless projection, I thought Crawford would also redshirt this year...shows you what I know. I view all of DPJ, Collins, Black are outside receivers due to size (Black, Collins) and athleticism (DPJ) I think DPJ also has the size but he is a Z receiver to me and would then be off the line, where he wouldn't need to rely on length to beat press. Smaller shifter guys such as McDoom are slot ninjas and are held off the line to give them room to juke or run speed outs, also to motion them in for the end arounds and fly sweeps and such.

That's my understanding of the WR group as well. I was hoping to see a lot more Moe Ways this year, but even though we didn't I still see Ways taking over the Darboh role and Crawford filling the Chesson role. Perry and McDoom in the slot. Freshmen will play and probably play a good chunk.

The finest women aren't in the South. Maybe in Miami or Dallas. Other than that you are looking to bump uglies with incest children at an alarming high percentage rate. It gets really interesting when the father is quite possibly the grandpa too. The most intelligent women believe that the sun sets in the North and rises in the West. It's also fact that Asia is across the Atlantic Ocean and every kind of soil is called mud. Yall have a good night!

year (I think his knee is limiting him more than anyone is letting on because his explosiveness has waned) and Darboh's physical & skill metamorphosis this year, these guys should jump at joining UM. Add in Speight/Peters/McCaffrey ability with JH's offense, UM really seems like the premier school do a WR. Plus Fisch knows the route to the NFL as well.

Sure Bama has Julio and Cooper, but they were elite recruits from the start. USC has also had some great talent at WR lately. Baylor is a mess. OU isn't a player for our recruits.

UM is on the verge of an explosive O if the OL can become proficient and the QBs throw a good deep ball.

I was just reading through his twitter, he seems very pro Michigan. He seemed just as upset about the calls as we were. Also, it reminds me how everyone knew Michigan won that game. The pain won't go away.
