Shane Morris will do the throwing. That's what QBs do. Now run along.

No thank you.
Go Blue and Go Titans!
I feel like everyone has to change the original argument to make their point on this site. I never said you haven't recruited well. I just don't think you have recruited to the point of competing with the top 4-5 teams in the nation consistently. Your o-line recruiting has been excellent. After that I don't feel that you have an elite group. You have a lot of players that are fast, instinctive, or big, but not all three. Poggi is a great example. He is an awesome player with a great motor but I don't think he'll be big enough against the best o-lines. Jourdan Lewis is another, I don't think he's big enough for elite big receivers or to be physical enough in run support. McCray is another, where he seems to be on the smaller side and lacks elite athleticism. Clearly your RB and WR recruiting is an issue although Green would go a long way to helping the RB's. I don't think that your recruiting is going poorly. But I don't think you guys will be competing for a national title in the next 4 years. I have no doubt you disagree and I don't think you're crazy for it, I think an argument can be made, but that's my opinion. At the end, we won't know until we see how these kids pan out.
I love it. So arrogant and so naive at the same time. All that coming of a loss to TOSU! Sounds like a wait till next you kinda guy to me.
You know I've always been as straight up as possible. I wish he wasn't as good as he is. If narduzzie is still with us, you won't score more then 17 anyway.
The problem is no one cares what you think. And what you think is very different than what your own coach thinks and what many elite coaches around the country think. Many of our defensive recruits have/had offers from OSU (see e.g. Ondre Pipkins, James Ross, Dymonte Thomas, Henry Poggi, Mike McCray). And many also have/had offers from places like Bama. In fact, Poggi, the guy you just mentioned as a "great example" of a player not able to compete at an elite level, currently has an offer from Bama and Saban is still recruiting him hard trying to flip him. And he also has an offer from Urbie and OSU. But you don't think he's good enough? Yeah, ok. It certainly puts the rest of your "observations" in perspective.

You do realize that only the top 40 or so players in the country possess all three of those traits right? And no one is signing 20 of the top 40 players in the country (although USC is trying).
Funny you should ask about our QB, yes he is injured. He also dominated big boy football in Texas. Lol funny how Derrick Green is 10x better than Elliott, but Elliott is ranked higher. By that logic I could argue our QB is 10x better than yours? Yeah Marshall who lead the UA game in receiving yards, of course he's our top wr target and would be yours as well. Then once we get Gibson, Quick, Elder, or Wilson we will have 2 better wrs in our class than your top guy, as well as a top 2/3 TE. Lol when you just make stuff up it makes you look desperate, but then again you are a Michigan fan.
Composite ratings have Green higher than Elliot.

True. You can also look at their offer lists. There's no comparison. Green's is a who's who of everyone from USC to Bama to Oklahoma to Michigan. Elliott's not so much. It's basically OSU, Georgia and ND (two of which also offered Green). LOL at the Nuts thinking Elliott is in the same conversation with Green.
Is the composite rankings the average of all sites? Which sites are included in this?
I think it's 247, scout, rivals, and espn.
By that logic, your WR's over the last two years are barely MAC caliber. I'm not sure how OSU could have a higher ranked class according to everyone...clearly all of the UM kids are 10x better than the OSU kids...I wonder when all of the experts are going to catch on.
Green: #1 RB (#14 overall)
Elliott: #9 RB (#77 overall)
Green: #2 RB (#15 overall)
Elliott: #9 RB (#51 overall)
Green: #5 RB (#41 overall)
Elliott: #14 RB (#139 overall)
You might want to look back at the offers Chesson and Darboh had
UM's class is ranked higher than OSU's on both Rivals and Scout. Even on ESPN, whose rankings most people consider less reliable and/or biased for media purposes, UM is only two spots behind.
Rivals Class Rankings
1. Notre Dame
7. OHIO STATE
Scout Class Rankings
2. Notre Dame
3. Texas A&M
5. (tie) Georgia
5. (tie) OHIO STATE
ESPN Class Rankings
1. Notre Dame
4. OHIO STATE

Buckeye fan hating on Michigan?? yawn...
Check out my 2 deep of UM's base 4-3 under defense, let me know your thoughts. Last updated: 3/28/12
No bowl game this year, so they've had a lot of free time on their hands lately.

What I want to know is why does every anti-Michigan thread get upvoted like crazy? Is there just a lot of buckeyes on this site or does everybody just hate us?
It'd be like a plumber barging into a Wall Street traders office and telling him he doesn't know what he's talking about in regards to the stock market. These recruiting websites have professionals that do this stuff for a living and all 4 major recruiting sites have Morris highly rated yet UMs rivals think they are all wrong... See how silly that sounds? Gotta love the "I'm not flaming" flaming threads though.
No one cares what I think? This is a 247 public message board, meaning basically by definition no one's opinion matters. If you don't care, then why are you on here responding to comments that aren't directed towards you? You're a clown.
