Where there’s smoke???? More on Dax

Brandon Justice just posted this on Twitter “I’m told #Michigan has gained serious momentum in its pursuit (x2) of 5star Alabama commit Dax Hill. I don’t have a crystal ball, but if I did it’s on U-M.”

Really Maizen? From everything we've seen Hill is the antithesis of anyone who wants the spotlight, unless you have access to his twitter? I didn't think so. 

This player isn't doing it for the spotlight. If anything, he's upset at being conflicted, or that he might have been too hasty off of whatever Alabama told him as far as Michigan coaching rumors. Not everyone is a primadonna.

Nor did Najee Harris. I am not implying Dax is a prima donna. [For Dax - it would be real nice to be on the winning side of the intrigue. Go Blue young man!]

I am saying the press loves the intrigue and I am agreeing with JHumich, I cannot be optimistic based on our past record head to head with Bama.

Also - don't call me Maizen!

Isiah Hole's Locked On Wolverines podcast is saying this as well. He says that Harbaugh going to ESPN to get on record that he's not leaving UM happened when it did for a reason. 


Reading between the lines it looks like someone...*Bama* *cough* *cough*...used the bogus reports from Carter, et al to flip Hill forcing Jim to set the record straight on ESPN. Now Hill is stuck between the two schools.

If I was him I'd be pissed at whoever tried to use that BS on him.

Isiah Hole also said DB isn't going anywhere.

I thought that Solomon's recruitment was the weirdest saga I'd ever seen, but this one is coming close.

Still not buying it, but crootin' so who the fuck knows any more. People don't make sense.

So I am ignorant.  Everything I have read said that Dax's pledge to Bama took them by surprise, that they weren't even expecting it.  If that is the case, how does a recruit get the pics that Dax used on his twitter feed to share his flip to Bama?  Do all colleges make those images and send them to the kids they offer?

I don't know...here's what I'm hanging my hopes on.  Dax flipped 4 days ago after all the Harbaugh to the NFL talk. Coach Harbaugh doesn't typically comment on those rumors, but he did 3 days ago.  A day after Dax flipped.  Now Dax might be wavering in his commitment to Bama?  

Not sure that works for everyone.  It's a shot in the dark, but that's the way I'm connecting the dots at this point. 

Don't care what the issue is/was, just hope it gets resolved and Dax comes to UM where he will be welcomed with open arms.

Something smells fishy about this whole thing, and if so, I'm just now sure who's playing who. 

Two years ago, Najae Harris allegedly ditched his plan to switch to Michigan at the last second.  At the time, I wondered if Saban had put him up to this as a way to fire shots at Harbaugh.  This year Dax dumps us, then within a few days there is talk of this isn't over? Is this just crootin', are Dax and Saban in on a second long con, or is it Harbaugh and Dax going at Saban?  Probably just crootin', but it does seem like Saban doesn't like Harbaugh after the whole camp tour thing.
