I think the fact that Michigan won, despite the horrendous play on defense can't be overlooked. I'm hard pressed to believe that looking back on the season, the IU game wont be the worst game the defense played.

Ohio State wont be nearly as run heavy and I fully expect the D to get at least one turnover. Peppers usually makes one or two impact plays on D and I didn't see that either (example of that IU Freshman catching that first down in the second half while Peppers covered him).

8-2 is a heck of a start and a win is a win.

I think this is a great move and will make an impact. Nike is absolutely one of the most influential brands for millennials http://www.businessinsider.com/top-50-millennial-brands-2015-5 (Nike #1, Jordan #9).

How big of an impact will vary greatly depending on recruit, but being aligned with the best is an absolute win. Oregon has definitely reaped the benefits of Nike. Compare that to Maryland, (headquarters of UA right down the road) and it's no contest. Brands matter. I am not making the argument Oregon is better than Maryland because Nike is better than Under Armor. I'm making the argument that if you asked a recruit who had nod visited either school which university is 'cooler' Oregon or Maryland, Oregon would win out.

Bottom line, it comes down to what makes Nike money. Nike knows Michigan is a cash cow and they will innovate and bring new things to Michigan because they know it will equal sales.

WIth all of the recent verbal committs and last year's verbals who eventually committed elsewhere over last year's season, does anyone have an attrition % of 3 -5 star who ended up elsewhere after previously giving the verbal committ?

Here are the raw numbers of in vs out of state recruits since 2002. This does include recruits that signed but didn't play like Demar Dorsey of 2010.
