I support coach Hoke in calling you know who "Ohio." I don't care if people want to say "OSU" or "Ohio State," but can we please make it a rule that no Michigan fan on a Michigan board ever...EVER refers to them as tOSU or The Ohio State?
I wholeheartedly agree!

alright fine have it your way
"Those Who Stay...Will be Champions"
you do seem to have a lot of these types. Went over to your board and your daily article looks ridiculous now. It said tOSU was leading for Deon Hollins who committed to UCLA tonight. Hopefully we snag Hunter Bivin this week.
So do I.
Always knew you were a closet ND fan!
And the fact that you guys are the lesser of two evils. Plus seeing the greatest coach ever have no oline would be outstanding.
The jig is up.
Bucknuts makes up ridiculous rumors and stories based on nothing. 90% of their writers are hacks.
Is Bivin announcing this week? I saw he put us in his top 7 recently which is weird because it seems like we stopped recruiting OL except mcGovern
They are just playing to their fanbase. Most sites do it to some degree, though Bucknuts is a bit over the top. IMO, Bivin is headed to either South Bend or Auburn. Ohio is, at best, third on his list.
Ohio State honestly has one of the most obnoxious fanbases in the country. And that is not my Maize & Blue blood talking. I would put them up there with WVU and LSU. I would be embarrassed if Michigan fans acted that way.
What do you think about the other prospects floating around - Pocic, McGovern, Montelus, Lazard?
I dont think we need another OL in this class...after getting 9 in two classes, I think its time to stagger the OL recruits out more. This way we are adding balanced depth at the position each year. When the 2103 OL recruits graduate, there will be more holes to fill at the position if we take 6 OL this year. By taking just 5 OL this year, we can use that extra OL slot for the 2014 class by taking 4 OL instead of 3 for example, giving the position a better balance of commensurate scholarships on a yearly basis.
Very hard to call. I honestly think we could have Pocic or McGovern if we wanted them. I think it's 50/50 we take another OL and that will depend on how all our other top rated prospects play out. Assuming we do well with the others and, therefore, have no room for another OL at the end of the process, I think the remaining OL fall as follows:
Bivin - ND or Auburn
Pocic - ND or Ohio
Montelus - Ohio
McGovern - ND, Ohio or Wisky
Lazard - no idea

He's not said this, but he's officially on watch. I think the chances are very good he commits. IMO Bivin and CB Tre' Bell are both canidates. Bivin and Elmer have been talking on FB/twitter.
I asked Bivins coach where tOSU stood and they are in his top 3.
I don't see Pocic attending ND. tOSU looks to be the leader, but he's making a lot of visits down south so that could change. Steve has mentioned McGovern often on our board. I want Dorian Johnson out of PA. Elmer, Bivin, and Johnson. I think we need 4 in this class. Most of the staff is saying we take 3. Don't know how that works with Darius Latham favoring us and Wisconsin. Think we are the clear leader for Latham who is being recruited an an OL, which I'm not a fan of. Think he'd make a great DL.

The Deon Hollins thing was bizarre. Kurelic interviewed him and Hollins said he grew up an OSU fan and almost committed when he was offered a couple of days ago but he said he wanted to visit first and everything went well he would commit but then committed to UCLA 24 hours later without even visiting them yet.
Hey this is very OT, but can you give me any info about Taylor Graham, the QB who is transfering to Hawaii? I know he doesn'y fit with the new scheme but what are his pros and cons? I'm really interested because he's the first 3* QB to come to Hawaii in a while.
Graham has a very good arm but can be a inconsistent at times and he has had injury problems in the past.
Hollins was really close to committing to A&M, but wasn't sold on the scheme. I have a feeling this kids recruitment is far from over. I'd be stunned if he ends up at UCLA.
Is good for a laugh when the Bucknuts site thought he might commit to them this weekend. And now not in his other schools to visit.
Update on Latham. He's visiting ND Saturday and Tennessee Sunday. Came out and said he wants to play on DL, so unless we change our stance and offer him as athlete/DL Saturday we might be out of the picture. Hopefully we inform him Saturday he cam come in on the DL and see how that works out.
Sadly I've seen it reported that Michigan told Latham that we're full, meaning that we were recruiting him as a OL.
I could have sworn you guys were recruiting him along the DL, maybe I was wrong.
