With a recruit it is easy for every fan to have an opinion and the tidal wave begins.  When I see an article like this I usually have very little to add.  A casual fan can't talk to the same extent about the finer points of football execution.   I love these types of articles, but I think there are far fewer people on the site that can contribute to a conversation about the breakdown of a play due to less knowledge about the subject.  

02/12/2016 - 4:31pm Finally

Looks like JH finally learned to pick up the damn phone.


05/11/2015 - 2:31pm Nice!

Let's hope this starts a shift in recruiting momentum.  Very happy for JB.  He is such a great coach I can't wait to see him load up on top level talent.

02/02/2015 - 4:57pm Credibility with who?

Certainly not with recruits and their families.  Maybe he losses credibility with fans that want to only be notified when a blue chip recruit is landed, but other than than I see NO downside to a coach getting excited about a new player pledging to Michigan.  The downside only seems to be with a group that could probably use a reality check anyway.

Iman:  I am a little worried about having to wait to see the field.  You already have Peppers and Lewis at CB for a couple of years.

JH:  Hey Pep, you want to move to Safety?


JH:  If you earn a starting CB spot, you can start from day 1.  Let's go try on that #2 jersey and snap a few pics with Chuck.

01/19/2015 - 2:44pm Same thought

It sure sounded like he meant Peppers would be supporting him as a safety.   It could obviously mean he is just a player that would provide support, or backing, but my first thought was that Peppers is talking to him as if he would be in the role of a safety for Michigan next year.

01/13/2015 - 8:34am Yesterday alone.

They landed 3 top 25 players yesterday.  OSU will continue to get quality players and it their recruiting will improve.  

I agree that until Michigan can start beating OSU it will continue to be an uphill battle for recruits.

01/12/2015 - 4:15pm Poor Holder

I thought the same thing when I saw that play.

01/09/2015 - 12:09pm Just don't ask.

"Just don't ask Richard what he thinks of me now."

11/26/2013 - 1:22pm 1 less 2014 player

It comes from not filling the spot BP will now take in the 2014 class with another player.  Yes, BP will count against the 85 total, but they will now take 1 less 2014 kid and that frees up another spot for a 2015 kid.

10/05/2013 - 9:50pm Runs.

We need some. We have not scored in 10 innings. Come on boys!

09/23/2013 - 2:51pm What a hit.

He flipped that kid from upright to upside-down while driving him to the ground.  JP might be good.

09/23/2013 - 9:18am Like...

Micheal Jackson?

07/29/2013 - 3:17pm What?

How are you possibly unbuckled?

07/08/2013 - 6:00pm Friends

I am pretty sure that I have read that they are freinds.

06/24/2013 - 11:30am Needs some Denard

TD against OSU comes to mind.  He also had a run earlier in the season where he made a cut that is just not seen to often on the football field.  Those would have fit in nicely.

06/07/2013 - 4:00pm I agree.

Ferns and Mone have both been on board for a long time.  Ferns is all over social media and just attended a camp.  Mone is out of site and out of mind.  I think he could be the best interior DL player Michigan has had commit since Hoke came on board. 

06/03/2013 - 5:24pm But, but, but....

Combine that statement with his comments about answering the phone when he wants to talk to someone and not answering when he does not want to talk to someone!  Sound like he is dropping VT. 

05/23/2013 - 5:52pm Hoke?

Something tells me with Mattison and others on staff it will get handled before it gets to Hoke.

05/13/2013 - 12:58am Wow!

What a great game.  NEXT!

05/02/2013 - 5:12pm 247

I know that 247 had some VIP info on Garrett today.  The tweet said it was new positive news for Michigan.

05/01/2013 - 5:27pm Next year.

We only took 2 last year and next year is supposed to be a small class also.  If we only take 2 this year will we even have space to grab more than 2 next year?

04/25/2013 - 5:29pm Stud LB

That is kind of what we do now right?  It is fantastic to get in on this kid early, and getting him on campus once already is great.  I am glad to see that Manning is building relationships and getting kids on campus.  Not hard to believe from a guy with his personality. 

04/25/2013 - 5:25pm Great.

Happy to see another Michigan kid in the fold.  His tape looks legit.

04/25/2013 - 5:23pm All Good.

He just committed.

04/25/2013 - 1:27pm Believe it.

Just like the Lions will get the top player on their board at #5 tonight.

04/19/2013 - 5:11pm Hand is from Virginia

Most experts have Hand with a top 2 of VT and Michigan.  Peppers has a top 2 of Stanford and Michigan. 

04/19/2013 - 5:09pm Grey Shirt

He accepted a grey shirt scholarship so he will not count against our scholarship number until next year.  That could be why he is listed on some sites and not on others.

04/19/2013 - 3:30pm Without reading the article...

I would think every class wants to have their class be ranked #1.  I will assume that this article was more about how they want to get the best group of guys possible together so that they can reach maximum success together.  With such a small class this year I am not too worried about how the team ranks, but would love to see Michigan land a few real difference makers at possitions of need.  Harris could be one of those.  Hand and Peppers could too.  Things are headed in the right direction and it is important for that to continue until the success on the field starts showing up. 


Slight highjack:  Are we kidding ourselves with Hand?  18 of 20 staff at 247 predict Hand to VT.  That is a pretty high percentage for a player we are feeling like we have a legit shot at.

04/18/2013 - 5:26pm GRIII to play the 3?!?

If this is what they are thinking going into next year that things might look quite different next year.  I could see GRIII spliting his time between the 3 and 4.  Mitch playing both the 4 and 5.  This leaves more minutes for Horford, Morgan and Donnel.  It really creates a minute crunch for minutes at the 2 and leftover 3 minutes.  Levert, Stauskas, Irvin for a spot and a half.  They will be battling every day at practice for minutes.

04/18/2013 - 4:44pm Awesome.

Each player has to do what is best for them, but I am sure glad that these 2 choose to come back.  Should be able to compete with the talent they will have next year.  Wow, will they be young.

04/18/2013 - 4:13pm Tough to stick if you are close to the 150 mark

Knowing how rankings go unless Cole hits the circuit hard he will fall of the 150 list after a few updates.  We had several players last year that were at one point on the 150 list that did not end up there at the end.

04/18/2013 - 1:10pm Presser today at 4:30

Mitch and GRIII will make their choices.

04/18/2013 - 1:04pm or maybe it is true.

Every non-Michigan writer also has Virginia Tech leading.  I think that where we are sitting is a good spot.  VT has been his leader for a while.  He loved his trip to Michigan, but has not come out and said that Michigan is his new favorite.  There is abviously reason to be excited.  If there was a sizable gap before it has narrowed.  Should be fun to follow.

04/18/2013 - 12:46pm Very well.

2014 is off to a great start with tons of interest from the very good to great/elite players.  2015 already has some top players visiting and talking up Michigan.  Harris, Campbell, DeBerry and others.  Very exciting.

04/15/2013 - 5:34pm Agree.

Cole is a stud.

If they can land Bars to go with Cole that would be a great haul.


04/15/2013 - 5:24pm OSU lock or not.

I was hoping he would Go Blue.  I am glad we are loaded at O-Line from the last 2 years because I do not see us landing studs across the line again this year.   Maybe the coaches are focusing on other areas.  I can't blame them.  They are killing it at every other position this cycle.  Early results being early and all.

04/14/2013 - 1:15pm Wow!

Guess his trip to Ohio confirmed it for him.  Hail Yes!

04/09/2013 - 11:35am Good read.

Imagine if Indiana had lost in the finals.

04/09/2013 - 8:55am My way to cope.

Whenever I get depressed thinknig of the game last night I just go through the checklist starting in round 2.  VCU game.  Kansas game.  Florida game.  Syracuse game.

What a great run by the team.  A ton of great moments.

04/07/2013 - 5:01pm Ace.

If that game was won with relative ease, I want nothing to do with a close game again.  That second half was killing me.


04/07/2013 - 12:02am I was jumping around too much.

Can I assume  there is going to be a money GIF of the bench on that last Morgan breakaway?

04/03/2013 - 9:20am My guess

The get the tour and visits with coaches and academic folks out of the way during the day.  At night when the basketball game is on they will be with the player hosting them and I am sure they will be watching the game.  What a cool thing for these guys.  Hanging out on campus in AA while the team plays in the FF.

04/02/2013 - 1:41pm Chump change

I am pretty sure Tubby Smith made $250,000 for making the tourny and winning a game.

03/30/2013 - 9:03pm What about this.

What if you feel forced to sort of root for Duke because UNC fans are so damn annoying and my B-I-L is a UNC without any geographical ties.

03/29/2013 - 10:41pm I was equally happy

with the 2 made free throws.  Finally.

03/24/2013 - 10:18pm Imagine

Shaka would be a great hire for UCLA.  That much swag in LA would be a great fit.

03/23/2013 - 11:39pm Yup.

That is what happened.  The fault lies with the guy who passed it to Stockton as he was heading out of bounds.  If you are passing it to him it has to be earlier.

03/14/2013 - 2:03pm Great first game.

Winner at the buzzer by Paul.  Illini wins by 2.
