Wow, sense of humor at a low ebb. Now I know what it's like to be a part of those fan bases where you have to include "/s" for them to be able to see it.

I think I prefer being a Michigan man...

Sam had this as a highly unlikely get. We're already strong at TE, and have more recruits coming in. We'll be fine.

In this case, I think it's valid. If the coaches wanted him then Yaaay if we get him but I'm not sorry that he won't be in the class. We already have 2 TEs in the class and 4 guys who will be juniors next year, so we aren't desparate for freshman contributions.

I want to get to the point where Harbaugh doesn't feel forced to recruit unbalanced classes. He didn't take a TE last year because he was compelled to recruit 4 (or 5) WRs and 5 DTs. I would rather take 2 this year and 2 next year. That will be better for continuity going forward.

Sam Webb said his parents were on board with ND.. Hate them all you want, and I do too, but it is a good school. I can't fault a kid for going where his parents want him and he's gonna get a good education.

His parents visited ND.  Unfortunately, they didn't make the trip up to UM when he came for his official visit.  Where the parents are this involved in the decisionmaking process, you have to get them on campus.  I believe the parents visited ND twice and only his grandfather came with him when he came to Michigan.

Placing the whole "RC" thing (which has played well in Chicago for many years) aside for a moment, one obvious feature of ND (*private* school) is something that carries great weight with at least a small subset of the population. They may live in places where -- for K-12 -- there's a chasm between public and private in quality, safety, etc. They might not understand that it doesn't necessarily work that way for secondary education.

ND is a good school. They have done reasonably well on the field.  Their TEs have done well in NFL.   BK appears to be a jerk from the distrance, but he could be totally different in person.

Went to college with a girl who was studying to be a physical therapist/athletic trainer. She was often on the sidelines for cmu football games when BK was there. She said he’s the biggest dick ever on the field, but off the field he is a pretty good guy. I don’t buy it.
