We aren't just committed to college football; we're early enrolling in it.

I never said reserving a spot for 6 or 7 OL. I said you hold a spot for the 4 (esp. 3 of the top 4) OL that are committed to Michigan's '13 class.
He was also getting his butt handed to him by Bama in a post-Tebow world.
when you commit early to Michigan and forego visits elsewhere (to which you're entitled by the NCAA) you're making a sacrifice.
No it's their choice. They are completely entitled to take visits and wait. If they want to commit early and skip the visits, it is their choice. Not a sacrifice.
This is Michigan, fergodsakes.
You are acting like the kids show up on visits and commit without ever talking to their parents. This isn't the case. Chris Fox said he knew for about a year that he wanted to go to Michigan. Logan Tulley-Tillman had visited Michigan a crap load of times, Ben Gedeon took another visit before committing to Michigan.
Lol. This comment makes the "dumbest shit ever" wall. Even funnier considering Michigan hasnt played Urbs yet.
My coach is 1-0 against Meyer. Whats your record?
No, you're saying you've decided you want to attend Michigan. That's hardly a sacrifice. And why is that such a difficult concept to grasp? If a prospect wants to take more time/visits, he is free to do so (see Laquon Treadwell). In fact, as you clearly point out, NLOI cannot be signed under NCAA rules until NSD so Michigan can't stop anyone from taking any visits. If a prospect chooses to stop taking visits because he has made a decision, there is nothing wrong with that and it's not a sacrifice. Prospects do it all the time whether the school they are committed to has a rule against further visits or not. Presumably even FSU commits do it. Is E. J. Levenberry still taking visits? My understanding is he's not. Is he making a sacrifice by being committed to FSU? You are turning the entire concept of a commitment on its head.

1-0. We beat his defending national championship team with the superhero Heisman winning QB in the 2008 Capital One Bowl. Try again, but at least do a little homework first. You made this one way too easy.
Edit: Also, I just checked. You guys are 1-5 against Urbie while he was at UF. The only time you beat him was in his last season when Tebow was gone and he had one foot out the door. You were crushed 45-12 by his 2007 team we beat in the bowl. At least I now know why you guys fear Urbie so much. He owned you.

They did reserve a spot for 4 O-Linemen, however, they had 5 or 6 elite OL rushing to commit. So you are saying you would tell Pocic/Biven that they couldn't commit because you were holding a spot for the off-chance that Dawson or LTT might commit?
Saban is a monster, and beats everyone. Second, they are not division opponents. Third, not near as many recruiting battles as FSU/UM.
If Nick Saban beating you down annually was grounds for termination, nobody in the SEC W would keep a coach.
So you are a Jimbo Fisher fan but not an FSU fan/Bowden wasn't "your coach" and you don't claim any of his successes?
So did Ball State play in that game, or did Hoke coach that team for the bowl game?
You said Michigan hasn't played Meyer yet, and asked what your record was, not what Hoke's record was. He corrected you that we had and answered your question. Your idiocy is almost unbelievable.
Kulger had a visit setup for MSU on a Sunday. He visited Michigan and committed, without meeting Hoke, never setting foot in East Lansing.
LTT committed to Michigan on the way home from a Wisconsin visit.
MSU did the smart thing with Dlineman Hurst, they had him visit East Lansing before visiting Michigan. He still committed to Michigan, but at least MSU gave themselves a chance.
Ball State? No, and neither did Akron. You lied about FSU's record against Urbie (and I can see why) and you asked what UM's record was against Urbie. I told you it's 1-0.
About as much success as Michigan had under Rich Rod during the same time period...
I will lay it out pretty simply, because you and Mr Woodson dont get it.
Jimbo Fisher has beaten Urban Meyer. Badly. Brady Hoke has not.
Michiigan fan talking smack about "big boy" football in regard to Meyer is hilarious.
I could just as easily point to Michigans suckitude against OSU lately (similar to.UF/FSU), but I didnt, because its not relevant.
Michigan is a different program under Hoke as FSU is different under Fisher.
The only difference is that the "new" program at FSU has beaten Urban. Michigan has not.
Yet Michigan fan tells FSU fan "we will deal with him"...when you havent even played the man yet.
I cannot make this any simpler.
choice & sacrifice are not mutually exclusive.
Read the post above...then go read a book, your comprehension needs serious work.
And Urban is not at Florida anymore. Urban at Florida is not the same program as Urban at Ohio State. Your new program hasn't beaten Urban at Ohio State either.
What you can't make any simpler is your homoerotic man-crush on Urban Meyer
Guys Urban Meyer has never shown that he can beat Brady Hoke. Let's not call him great until he can at least show that he can compete with Hoke and Company.
If target X has high interest and is significantly better than Y, you reserve a spot X and don't take Y. Most teams don't have more elite targets beating down their door than they should accept. FWIW, as a rule you don't turn down elite talent: accept their commitments and let them surpass the non-elite competition. And let the latter take their talents elsewhere....
Not so much. Read it again
Same argument works with Meyer never beating Hoke.
Michigan didn't do that. See Ethan Pocic and Dorian O'Daniel. Both had high interest. They were beaten by other high-caliber guys who had high interest.
