Off to Louisville
He has always had the Louisville visit planned, that's why he isn't coming to visit us.
IMO it says alot about his interest in Michigan. You do not visit when your two closet friends visit together ... on the same weekend trip?

That's exactly what's weird about it...those three have been going everywhere together.
No they haven't. Cole has visited a few more schools than the other guys. It's nothing weird about a kid visiting another school.
Perhaps he doesn't have UM high, or perhaps they are going about their recruitment the way they want. Who knows? But you can't assume his interest level just because he isn't coming, who knows what plans/ tickets were bought when
New CB Offer not much on him posted in a thread below
DashoneSr St. Aug db Jermaine Roberts picks up offer from the Michigan Wolverines .. @pelicanpreps 08:16PM
2014 DE Malik McDowell texted me tonight to let me know that he may not be able to visit Ann Arbor this weekend. McDowell was involved in a minor car accident tonight. He ran across some black ice, slid off the road into some trees and a fence. McDowell was not hurt but his vehicle is out of commission. He told me they may try to get a rental car tomorrow so he can still make the trip.
Some notes from MGoBlog's Friday Recruiting article that I hadn't seen make their way in here:
-Elijah Hood now has Michigan 4th, up from basically 6th last I heard.
-Wilton Speight says that Joe Mixon has Michigan in his top 3
-Bentley Spain has Michigan in his final 6 and wants to make a spring decision, so pray we can get him on campus.
Give him a competitive raise, and then give out bonuses.....$50k if you beat Ohio, $25k if you win the division, $75k if you win the B1G championship game, $75k if you win a BCS bowl game etc.... These are payments that the athletic department should want to pay. Im sure these types of clauses exist, but Im unaware of them. I would allocate nearly $1M in bonuses for all the coaches adjunct to Hoke.
Any idea what Hood's top 4 are (or is?), and what Mixon's top 3 is (or are?)?
Not sure on Mixon, I know he really wanted an offer from Boise.
Hood has ND out front for sure, maybe UNC.
No idea whatsoever on Mixon.
Hood's original top-6 was, in order: ND, UNC, Clemson, Ohio, Georgia Tech, and us. If I had to guess, I'd say that we jumped Georgia Tech and Ohio. Not sure though, the link MGoBlog gave is broken.
edit: did some googling, found the link. I was right. He has it as 1) ND 2) UNC 3) Clemson 4) Michigan 5) Ohio

Hood is supposedly visiting OSU soon, from what I hear.
As for Mixon, the only person that has said we are in the top 3 is Speight. He may be right, but there is no other info out there on him.
Mixon doesn't have a top three; it may have been Hilliman he was referring to by accident.
Spain has had Michigan in his top six for a while; I believe he's supposed to visit for a spring practice, but Michigan has a lot of ground to make up with South Carolina.
Hood's visiting the Big 3 in the Midwest this weekend - ND on Friday, us today, OSU on Sunday.
There is talk that Montgomery met with Stoops in person some time last week. Rumors from some Oklahoma sites that he's going to accept the job offer from the Sooners. This is a heck of a weekend to have this type of uncertainty surrounding the coaching staff. Montgomery has been one of Cole's primary recruiters, btw.

I think Hood is all ND
I really hope not. Let's not be like Wisconsin, and lose coaches cause we don't want to pay them
Michigan better come across with the cash to best OU's offer, if they dont it means we have troubles higher up that need addressed
There are plenty of things for which to criticize Dave Brandon. Failing to open up the wallet isn't one of them.
Unfortunately the decision isn't entirely in his hands. Michigan's athletic department and the salaries of the people who work in it are always restricted by higher ups (both at the university and from outsiders) who want to avoid placing too much emphasis on sports. There are academia types who scowl at paying so much money to football coaches.
