The "crystal ball" predictions for hand just shifted abruptly to Alabama. Six predictions were made recently. All to 'bama. One of the predictions is from 247's recruiting director. Interpret this information as you will.

Another attention ploy IMO.
Honestly these predictions don't mean crap to me...look at Marshall. I predict based on what the recruit says and judging by Hands recruitment...its basically a 2 horse race. He always has more to say on VT and UM. I don't care what some Bama insiders say or Gerry Hamilton. C'mon, you're gonna listen to Gerry after he predicted Rutgers for Peppers at one point
"Those Who Stay...Will be Champions"
Also, there's a lot of time until Hand's December (I think?) decision. Official visits will make and break those in the running.

Not according to Steve L
I hate that the cystal ball is turning into a page clicking tool.
Why would Steve tell us it was? It could be, or it could not be; either way, it does show that there is some new info out there regarding Hand but there is still a long way to go

Hand is not a 3-4 DE. He's a 4-3 DE.
In Saban's defensive scheme, he would likely be a OLB like Adrian Hubbard.

Spot on. Hand has the intelligence to not fall for being a 3-4 OLB(or at least he seems too). His best work would come as a 4-3 DE, and he would be hurting himself if he lined up at backer.
I hope it is a UM vs Bama batte...I'd feel much more confident...like
What you eat, don't make me shit.
this new bama info after a rivals camp where rivals head writers think michigan is on top. yeah seems legit. im not buying this new bama stuff
JC stated that he shared his reasoning with Steve L.
And Steve said that the information is valid but doesn't make him change his pick of Michigan. He also said that he thought there would be a big change on his Crystal Ball in the coming days/weeks.

247 needs more "page views" before 2Q13 closes.
Guess we will see in the coming weeks/months. AsFrank said he is a better DE than 3-4 OLB and hope he realizes that.
Also the atmospheres/cultures between UM/Bama are totally different
Oh and like Peppers he wants to go where he can get a top education.
I like this head to head recruiting battle a lot. Hand isn't a 5 tech gap plugging DE, and he is much better suited to put his hand in the dirt as a 7-9 tech coming off the edge than he is to be a an OLB.
Also, as others are stating the education factor. Let's just hope they feed Dashawn some pretty dang good food when he visited UM. I could picture Bama having an excellent spread of grub.
I like how Mark said F them and picked UM today.
Where's the NSA when you really need them???

Butte, Ducks, one of you guys want to do us an awesome favor and take a peek into that thread for us? It's 4 pages long and obviously a hot topic.
Total 100% pure unadulterated speculation: Bud Foster's name is being thrown around for several potential HC jobs – UVA, UMD, GT – and the expectation is he's likely to be offered at least one of them. Alternatively, Kirby Smart's name is being throw around for several HC jobs and Nick Saban has "leaked" that Bud Foster is at the top of his list to replace Smart as DC. Third option: Alabama is hiring Hand's HS football coach.
