Is there a good chance?

That we could steal a few defenses players if we hire Mattison. Like Zettel or any other players? I bet he could influence a few.

I'd like to see us get back in it (or at least to where we were previously) with Ray Drew and Karlos Williams. It's not going to happen, but a guy can dream right? I'm still very skeptical that Zettel ends up a member of this class, however

Anyone know why Kris Frost is so hard up to be a wideout. I would think bringing in a guy like Mattison who coached Ray freakin Lewis and Terrell Suggs would be intriguing to any high school linebacker.

Not argueing if it's a violation or not but really how could it be? How can the university prevent this from going on and I'm sure this wouldn't be the first time a fan "persueds a potential recruit in a particular direction.

I am 85% sure we land McClure and Raven. Those would be 2 huge "gets". Frost? You never know, Mattison and Hoke could "sway" him. Why would you want to play for a school that is about to get "hammered" for violations? I hope Frost goes Blue!

Will benefit huge from this.  Don't get me wrong any player on the Michigan def is benefiting from this. Speaks volumes on the hiring of Brady Hoke so far.  And of course DB the pimp.  We have money, come to MICHIGAN!

I could see maybe a few players being swayed by the idea that they'll have a guy who coached a couple top 10 defenses in the NFL over them......maybe that's more attractive.

I mean, Ray Freakin' Lewis, kids......think about it.

i dnt see hoke snagging any of RR's former top targets, but he does have some highly ranked targets of his own that are gonna giv him more looks because he's at UM now

A shot in the arm--a guy from the NFL who built one very stout defense.

And I'm now putting the over/under on Zettel threads (including subtle ones like this) before signing day at a firm 274.
