Bama just offered a full scholarship to the #1 LS. As you know we got the #2.

I disagreed w/ the move... but if Hoke & Saban agree I must be completely wrong.
This is a stupid move. I always thought Saban was a great coach and recruiter, but this clearly shows he's lost the edge.
Still think that we could of gotten a walk on LS this year that would do an adequate job.
Stealing Sparty's recruits and owning them on the field since 1898

Whoever writes these is hilarious.
Fred Jackson or one of his relatives maybe?
MercuryHayes........I hope you were making a joke!!!!!
Hey, now that you're back, maybe you can answer why you think Michigan's recruiting class ends up around 11 or 12 this year?
I am betting you don't get an answer.
CMXI●.......first WW lost his bet.
Look at the average of the recruits you have and the number of commits to date. Michigan has several more # wise than programs with a lower number of recruits with a higher average. Looking at some of the recruits other programs will probably close out with and Michigan's closure that is my estimate of your finish.
Maybe not down to 10 or so but at least down to 7/8.
This is my opinion and not meant to be a slur on your program........anything over #10 is a great recruiting year in my opinion....I know about opinions before you start.
Really looking to our meeting this fall.
I know it's not meant to be a "slur on our program", but dude. Come on. Your methodology is seriously flawed.
Right now, the average of the recruits we have is being held down artificially by our offer to an unranked LS, just like yours is by that unranked OL you just got. Both of our averages should be about a full point higher than they are at the moment.
Second, Michigan is still in on some very, very high quality recruits. Treadwell, McQuay, Bower, and Fuller, just to name a few. It's not like we're only down to 3-star filler recruits.
Third, while I don't expect us to finish first, can you seriously name 10 other teams that'll finish ahead of us in the rankings? Please do, if you can, I'd like to see who you think will be in the top 10.
Fourth and finally, we have as many or more 4-star recruits than all but one other team in the country has TOTAL recruits. If a class with 17 4-star commits can finish out of the top 10, I'd really love to see the classes that finish ahead of us, because it would have to be one of the most top-heavy commit years in history to see that happen.
CMXI●........never said "out of the top 10", probably 7/8. I see some teams with fewer recruits that I think will close out high 4 & 5 *'s.
That is my estimate/guess. Let's watch it play out. Again, not trying in any way to demean your recruiting effort......it is going great.
Just my thoughts.......been following this recruiting for many years.
I don't think its really a big deal that they offered a schollie to a ls. Bryce Haynes is a ls on schollie at OSU. And to the people who were wondering if they will rank the ls so your recruit rankings go up, Haynes was the no.1 ls that year and I believe he stayed at a 1 star or not ranked. Not sure if any of the services have changed their stance on ranking them in the past two years but that's how it worked a couple years ago.
Let's keep in mind we only have about 23-24 scholarships this year while they have about 38-39
How many teams get 20 4* recruits?
Michigan will finish #4 in the country.

Haha... I laughed.
I agree. I see Alabama, Texas, and Florida finishing ahead of us.
We will finish higher on other sites, but around that top 3 is a good estimate
But, but, but ... Urbie's not at UF anymore. It's a miracle they can recruit at all!
Of course, the real power behind that throne is now the DC at Michigan...
I don't know why people say that we'll drop a lot when signing day comes. Alabama may move ahead of us and maybe Texas but there's too much ground to make up for Florida or Georgia or anyone else.
but neither of them stole the LS from their rivals huh?
Dantonio = Trendsetter
congrats you won a recruiting battle by offering someone we didnt
Hoke is a trendsetter. Haha. Everybody following the leaders and best!
