What did I say that u want me blocked? I guess we cant speak out mines here. Might as well be in China.
How about you hit that sign out button in the upper right hand corner and take a break from posting for awhile. Ty is one of the best RBs in the nation.
Where is your mine located?
Its not sour graps. I have said from the start that I dont think ty is as good as people think he is. I guess will have to wait and see.
Its my opinion. God chill out. God forbid someone should disagree with you people.
He is easily one of the best RBs in the nation. I'm sure if he had committed to Michigan you would be saying he should be the #1 rated back in the nation. Provide links where you said he wasn't a good back.
You are aware that I was making a joke about your spelling right? It's mind not mine.
wow your so funny.
You're making my night right now.
You really need to get a gf and a life.
i agree with this 100%
Exactly. Michigan is not going to get ever elite kid they have on their wish list. Although, it is troubling on how we lose a kid from the midwest, which we spent so much time and investment. Is it the end of the world? Of course not. You deal with it and move one. However, at some point it would be nice to see us win these kids. While Michigan is not 'tailback U', the offensive lineman in 2012 and 2013 offers a very compelling proposition, to those who want the elite talent blocking for them.

I never said I wanted you blocked. I would have been in favor of just deleting your post. Sour grapes is an understatement. It's one thing if you were to say you didnt like his film. Its even ok to say you think he's too tall to be a running back .. and that you think he'll end up at wideout. But you're calling one of the best backs in this class a bust? Off of what? Cause he didnt pick our school? Come on bro. We're better than that.
I dont even think he's a top 3-4 back in this class, but he's a DAMN good back. I would have liked him here.
For the record, I'm not sure you're not a Bucks fan or a Sparty fan .. so if you are, just disregard this whole post.

It sucks Michigan didn't get Isaac but at least Michigan is getting players that are bigger. I appreciate guys like Gallon but at 5'8 he can only do so much. At least all of the receivers that Michigan has picked up the last couple of years are above 6 feet. Hopefully Treadwell signs with Michigan because it's getting old reading all of the "we don't get elite playmakers" talk.
Isaac is a great back and will be a great back. It just doesn't hurt as much since we already have great one in Deveon. Deveon's balance and power is unreal and borderline video game-ish. We all wanted Ty, but the kid didn't want us. No reason to get red ass and bash each other over a recruit. USC beat us out over a great recruit, I can only hope we do the same in the near future. There are still some great backs in this class that we can land...and if not...use the schollie elsewhere. We're not giving Deveon his due credit....he is every bit the back that Isaac is, he just doesn't have break away speed. Neither did Mike Hart and look what he did for UM. If you ask me...it's more important to have game breakers at the WR position if anything. I see great running backs as backs that move the chains and wear down a defense all game long. Lets suck it up...move on...and close out strong.

Agreed. Ty is a great back. I mean hell, I'd be hard pressed to choose Michigan if I got to visit USC and saw the beach, the women, and 70 degree weather in the winter time. I wish I went to USC as a regular student lol.
That being said, and offensive line can make any back look good. Ty would have been phenomenal behind the hosses we're bringing in, but they'll be able to make a good back look great.
I wish Ty all the best. I hope he's a great running back and when we face him in the Rose Bowl, we smack him around like we used to do Ron Dayne.
Joe Mathis will be playing JC ball next year. Kid won't qualify.
At my signal, unleash hell.
I'm not gonna lie about it, I really, really wanted Isaac. And after the initial disappointment, I'm coming to accept that scheme-wise USC may be a better choice for him. USC employs a zone blocking system, and I argued before Isaac is best suited as a one-cut runner in a zone blocking scheme. Not that he wouldn't have been successful with the man-blocking schemes at Michigan. It took Fitz a little time to adapt but he used to be a zone runner in HS too. Look at him now. But to a degree, Isaac already proved that he can excel in that one-cut style of running, and that's what he's going to do at USC.
But there are so many factors here. Coaching stability is definitely big, and anybody who dismisses that risk with Kiffin is blind. GL Issac.
What is unstable about Kiffin?
If successful, he'll probably jump on a pro offer.
(Don't shoot the messenger, just an outsider's take.)
Let's just say I'd feel better sending off my kid to play football for Hoke.
That is not an irrational take. However, Lane has said multiple times that USC is his dream job. In it for the long haul, IMO.
Certainly there's that possibility, but I was also thinking in terms of my kid getting a fair shot at everything, not getting shafted, etc. Look, any program, corporation, or organization inevitably takes on the personality of the head man over time. I like the idea of my son learning life lessons from Hoke.
