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

That's probably because you are.
Hmmm, that's confusing. I figured most Ohio fans would hate Craft...
laconophilia is everywhere...
Following up with additional assumptions? Certainly an interesting strategy.
Carry on; something tells me you're having a worse day than me.
And is UM typically in on the best overall player in the country?
He's a foul machine but it barely ever gets called. If any other player in the B10 reached in and hacked as much as he did they would foul out in the first half. I have no idea how he gets away with it other than at this point he's built up a rep as a great defender so maybe the refs just see what they want to see. But he fouls like mad and it rarely ever gets called.
Due to the fact that Iowa tanked. Can't believe there were 3 worse passing O's than MSU's, but State did throw for a chunk of yards and had more TDs than INTs.
At least there's room for improvement .
Looking forward to a legit spring game from a QB competition standpoint. Also going to be interesting to see the #2 CB battle.
Here are the big positional battles for MSU in the spring (no true FR enrolled early so they're not on the list):
RB: Hill, Tompkins, Langford
TE: Mills, Price, Jones and Lang
RG: Fonoti, Clark, Allen/Jackson
LT: France, Conklin, Fonoti
NT: Hoover, Reynolds, Knox
STAR LB: Tai Jones vs. Field
CB: Waynes, Colquhoun, Robinson
Michigan State does not and will not run the 3-4 defense.
Well, at least we found something we can agree on.
They certainly are this year; UM is definitely in Hand's top 5 at this point.
Having a great day here, sorry to hear that you are having a bad day. I think MSU has a better shot with Harris than Michigan does, if that makes you feel any better.
Was just going to post the reputation thing; definitely plays a role in the foul disparity.
Per Rivals.. They just got #8 Green- but wasn't he outside the top 30 before blowing up recently and getting a big move into being the #1 RB?
Next highest per Rivals is #70 Poggi
Highest on 247 is #65 Dawson... Highest on 247 composite is #26 Green
At this point for the 2014 class, yes. JC Shurburt has stated that Michigan is clearly in his top 2 and that the coaching staff at Michigan is his favorite staff.
Not Ohio... Ohio. Get with it.

I think Jones definitely has the Star LB spot locked up.
Oh, my apologies, I invite you to believe UM has a good chance with Harris. Please, go ahead.
Oh to be a UM fan. Must be a pretty crazy existence...
Dan Dakich was doing the OSU-PUR game last week and actually brought the topic up on air. He said he asked Craft about it before the game and Craft smiled at him and literally said something along the lines of "of course I foul on almost every possession, but I figure the refs can't call them all". And he's right.

Oh, right, yeah yeah yeah, I gotcha. Er, Craft transferred to Ohio? Eesh, quite a loss for OSU...
I don't think he ends up at Michigan or Michigan State.
I'll take this bet.
Before he committed to MSU he chose MSU mainly for bball. He basically chose between MSU bball and UM football. Now that basketball is out of the equation....
Spring practice is a month and a half away.
Michigan's most competitive positions.
RB: in the spring it will be Rawls, Hayes, and Johnson. Fall will include Toussaint, Green, and Smith.
WR: who breaks out opposite Gallon. Hopefully Darboh or Chesson. Dileo in the slot.
Interior oline. Bunch of bodies competing. Kalis, Bars, Braden, Bryant, Miller, Bosch, Burzinski.
I will get to the d later. Have work to get done.
Didn't he also make that choice prior to getting OSU, Bama, UF offers?
He won't end up at UF and I highly doubt he ends up at OSU. I think it's a UM/MSU/ND/Bama battle with an outside shot he picks USC (assuming they even offer).
I'm sorry, I just read this.
Are you F'ing kidding me?! They honestly believe Craft is as good as Burke?! HAHAHAHA. Holy hell that's rich. Sweet baby jeebus I had no clue. I'm genuinely laughing out loud right now.
Craft isn't in the same sentence as Burke, nor the same paragraph or even page. Hell, Craft is only in the same book as Burke as a topical reference to 'that one guy that slowed him down during his freshman year in college'.
I mean good grief; Appling is almost as good of a defender as Craft, and his offensive game is significantly better. Yet I think Appling is still a solid level below Burke at this point.
Sorry, I give you UM guys too much trouble. I had no idea what you were working with as OSU's rivals, for bball at least...
What's your point? If you're trying to imply we can't recruit against those schools, you might want to check many of our recruits offer lists.
We also have the proximity advantage with Drake, which he said he likes.
