I've seen this a million times and was always so in awe of Woodson that this is the first time I ever noticed Dhani Jones planting the receiver into the ground out of bounds.

At least he didn't say "Funk Michigan".   That would have been brutal.  Can't live through an O-line like that again.

Would you like to leave a message?  

What an excellent day for an exorcism.

To be fair to these kids, I'm sure it gets confusing as hell.   A lot of these coaches could put high pressure salesman to shame and as you said the kids are surrounded by people with their own motivations telling them all kinds of things. After a while, I'm sure the noise is overwhelming.

Hopefully Dax sees through it all and makes the best choice for himself.  Would love to see him in Maize and Blue, though.

If true, wouldn't one think that before changing said commitment it might be something the family might have a chat with the coaches about to clarify?  Seems like there is more to the story than that.  But, whatever.  I would love to see him still be part of the class.  He seems like a special talent.

Maybe they misspelled his name, and then he realized that they spelled it W-O-O-D-S-O-N and felt better about it.

It's astounding how much winning at sports fills such an inner need in people that they can overlook/forgive almost any behavior.  I love sports.  But, man.  Penn State, MSU, OSU...  it's all the same insanity.

12/11/2018 - 6:30pm Jblaze didn't say it, but I…

Jblaze didn't say it, but I think he's focused solely on offense.     But, your point still stands.  A number of offensive players aren't on the list (Glasgow, Darboh, Chesson, Butt, etc.)

But while Harbaugh and his staff had a role in developing those players, this is really the first year his recruits start graduating (other than early guys like Peppers).    It doesn't seem reasonable to criticize Harbaugh for lack of offensive talent when he got here.

Given the young talent on the team now, it seems pretty likely that more offensive guys are going to be going to the NFL soon and be drafted higher than the recent past.

12/11/2018 - 3:37pm I don't disagree.  It's…

I don't disagree.  It's certainly more relevant to the coaching staff.  But, part of it is the school's track record also.  Even the first few years of a new coaching staff we're talking aboutthe predecessor's players.

Looking at the overall track record may also give some context for trying to build a championship team. 

For instance, Nick Saban had rebuilding to do just like Harbaugh.   He had success, put guys in the league, and now recruiting has snowballed into a monster.

Urban Meyer didn't have to do that.   I think it's fair to consider that to compete with OSU, the talent gap has to be closed and a track record established.  That, unfortunately, takes time. 

Having recruits see more All-American talent leaving early for first and second round selections may ultimately be a very good thing for Michigan.



 

12/11/2018 - 3:10pm This surprised me as well.

This surprised me as well.

Another surprise.  Also looking at some of the names for Michigan on the OL...

Ben Braden
Mason Cole
Graham Glasgow
Kyle Kalis
Taylor Lewan
Erik Magnuson
Patrick Omameh
Michael Schofield III

That really jumps out to me as an indictment on OL coaching at Michigan, given the talent was obviously there.   Thankfully, the tide is changing there with new coaching and gives us reason to be optimistic for offensive performance going forward.

Unfortunately, that new owner then takes a sweetheart tax incentive deal, moves the team to a high revenue market, becomes good again, and breaks your heart anyway. (see Stan Kroenke and the Rams)

It would be extremely satisfying to see Beilein win it all and have that crowning achievement to his career.  What he's accomplished in bringing Michigan to the top (and the way he's done it) would make it something to savor.

Football is rising and it may take longer but I feel the same way about the direction of the program.

After looking at the last couple of decades for both programs, I'm just thankful they are both now within striking distance.

If the CFP expanded, I would kind of like to see these become play-in games (games include teams from all conferences) where lower seeded opponents have to come and play in the higher seeded team's conference venue.

Ideally, we would see southern teams come up and play in the snow.
