What have any of those other guys done to qualify as "very good" or "studs" since they've stepped foot on Bama's campus?
They were a 1 man show at WR this year. Cooper had twice as many catches as the next guy.
Not true, the spread offense which typically in college uses a dual threat QB, is designed to get the ball to playmakers in space. If you are a playmaker the spread is the perfect offense for you, Braxton Miller being inconsistent doesn't help, Philly had something like 60 catches this year as our top receiver, which I think puts him in top 3 for the conference, problem is OSU doesn't have many playmakers at WR right now.
Spread is also alot of short, drop passes .... elite WRs IMHO look for the system that provides them enough touches per game .... mixed between short, drop passes & deep routes. You want to be able to showcase your talents and speed from both perspectives. B. Miller is a Denard-esque QB, but a better thrower. I do not see OSU getting the elite WRs, similar to UM's problems with DR.

We have a top 5 WR in this years class.

Yes, Marshall is very good. But, 1 WR does not make a normal. Also, he is in OH's backyard - a given for you. Let me know when elite WRs are enrolling from outside OH.
I think we have a good shot at Drake Harris from MI next year.
Also we are in good shape with
and really good shape with
Those are all top 150 national type guys.
I'm more worried about OSUs ability to sign Olineman especially next year. If we dont get 3-4 really good ones next year we are going to have some major issues.

I cant wait to see what D'mario Jones will do, I think he flew way under the radar
His season is really impressive once you start to look at the context of his performance.
Michigan's passing offense:
Attempts: 319, 109th
Completions: 169, 112th
Completion Percentage: 53, 109th
If Michigan can even have mediocre season through the air then his production should improve dramatically. It's actually staggering how terrible we were through the air.
Another interesting, but less important fact, Gallon's numbers actually got better when he played against ranked opponents.
Vs ranked opponents
6g, 5.2 rec/g, 75yards/g
Vs unranked opponents
7g, 2.6 rec/g, 54yards/g

Rumored from Kurelic and Helwagen. Every player they report on has that rumor. Rumor is we are in better shape then you. Have you heard anything about his teammate Mason Cole? I know you guys are allergic to OL. They both have strong interest in UM, and could/would like to play together.
Is this tbb now? Why can't you guys seem to keep your posts and comments on your own page or the public page?
No you're not
Not by anyone that isn't a Buckeye insider.
I don't know if it has been mentioned, but if you take Gallon's numbers from the 5 games that Gardner started they project to 80 catches and 1300 yards according to Mgoblog.
Marshall is a great athlete, but a great WR he is not.
I think he'll have an impact returning, and running the ball early on, but he has a long way to go as far as his receiving skills.
If we want to be like Alabama, then we do. If we want to win Big Ten championships, we have to build a run game, an OL, and an elite defense.
I want small steps. First we build the foundation. Then we hopefully get elite WRs.
Why are you here? Go back to searching the internet for nude photos of Urban Meyer.
Elite play makers are important, but there are ways around it. Has Stanford had any elite play makers. No, they play D, recruit great oline, run the ball, and create mismatches with their TE packages. I see a lot of similarities between Stanford and Michigan. That being said Michigan will be able to get elite playmakers once we are fully a pro style offense.
I firmly believe that at this time Michigan does not have a great "current" record with WRs. If the coaching staff can develop a couple of these guys into NFL caliber players then you will see the doors open. Yet I still wonder at times if it is someone on the staff that just doesn't "click" with the kids??????? UofM should be reeling in 4 and 5 star WRs with no trouble. We do not seem to have problems with any other position.
D. Harris is not going to OSU. And ... D. Webb will not stick with you by next NSD. Mark it.
First, note that Amari Cooper is an extremely rare talent, and that the rest of the guys largely had limited catches because of the sheer number of viable targets the Alabama offense has.
Norwood, Bell, and Jones are all good receivers. Plus they are all returning along with Cooper. Plus Cyrus Jones and Chris Black are extremely highly touted RS freshman, and Marvin Shinn was a top 10 receiver in the class of 2010.
If you were to rank Alabama and Michigan's receivers based on talent, Gallon would probably be fourth or fifth and the only one in the top 7.
Don't do that.
But if you think about it what WR would want to try to catch Drob passes the last couple of years? Not many recruits knew that DGardner was going to become QB halfway through the season.
West Virginia had and has elite skill players, actually...how do you like them apples?
The roadmap to building a good team is now clear. Lineman first, run game next, basics, and then everything else afterwards.
I am feeling good today. There are 12 1/2 months till 2014 NSD .... Both D. Harris and D. Webb will have many schools trying to flip them. If the 2013 elites show any indication, odds are good one or both here end up elsewhere ..... just reading the tea leaves from 2013 and applying to 2014.
