Michigan is hardly a front running program.
Add QB and OL to this list of mismanaged recruitingThe out of nowhere "u up?" recruiting has got to stop. Miami being told "thanks, but no thanks" by guys already locked up with SEC and B1G schools is just funny.
Terrible planning at the linebacker position. We are going to be in a bad way if these Juniors declare and will be in a bad spot once they graduate as seniors. Its basically just a bunch of 3* guys behind Shaq and Co. Hard times.
Michigan is around where we are, and in some respect, worst. They've invested more into Harbaugh than we have with Richt. Yet, khaki pants still hasn't beaten Ohio State. With Meyer retiring, I bet there's significant pressure on Harbaugh to win now. If he loses to Ohio State this season with Ryan Day as the HC, I doubt Harbaugh comes to Michigan in 2020.Michigan is hardly a front running program.
Several similarities with Miami. Coulda, woulda, shoulda...
Make no mistake, the loss to Ohio State has set Blue's program back quite a bit.
Harbaugh's barrelling towards NASCAR pileup if Michigan loses to first year Poison Nut coach.
South Florida kids have always gone to front running programs this isnt new. We didn't start locking down South Florida kids until Howard and Jimmy started winning.
Define “balls out”, please.I'm honestly happy for the kid. Initially, I wanted to be pissed, etc, etc....BUT, these are the times guys. It is what it is. I actually feel like we will be alright. It was a botched year, no excuses. My concern is solely focused on whether the staff and players learn from this year and shift their mentality going forward. I should have plenty to prove going forward. They should be motivated. I can't sit here and say Richt doesn't give a ****. You don't coach on this level and be happy w/ eating losses. I feel like he was simply not focus on ball like he should've. He was more focused on off the field affairs, like the indoor facility. I think he was over-confident and overlooked required development of his team and ran **** on autopilot. I think this team balls out next year and has an outstanding recruiting class. Top 3. Bookmark this. Also, we need to get that loyalty BS out of our vocabulary. This is not the 90s or early 2000s. We are in the information age where everything is image and impulse. Everything comes easy. Kids simply want to be affiliated w/ the best and most prominent schools. Until we handle business on the field, kids will always flip flop. Even if win, they will.
