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

The difference is that our 4 and 5 stars are too young to start. Funchess, Norfleet, Ross, and Bolden all played and were some of the top freshmen in the big ten. We need consistent top 10 recruiting classes each year to add the same talent and depth as the SEC powers. So far we're good in the 2012 and 2013 classes. 2014 looks like it will be the same and it's starting to show on the field according to guys like Jerry dinardo who were very critical of us during the past 5 years or so.
Stealing Sparty's recruits and owning them on the field since 1898
LSU beat Bama without one. But then they got killed in the NCG.
Yeah, I edited that post because I completely forgot about that game.
they really don't get it. When we say our recruiting is comparable with Alabama(which it is) they say that it can't possibly be because the recruits under RR couldn't compete with Alabama in September.
South Carolina's number of 5* recruits by year, per Rivals:
Forgive me if I'm a bit confused...
laconophilia is everywhere...
It was a forgettable game, so it's no wonder it escaped your mind.
So you admit you're more than two 5* recruits behind Bama.
Nobody is arguing that, buddy. You said UM is two 5* players from being at Bama's level. I am strongly disagreeing with you.
before they got Lattimore they were nothing but a 7-5 type team then as soon as they got Lattimore and Clowney they won the SEC East and 11 games. Is it a coincidence?
Hey, I agree UM is headed in a better direction with Hoke.
I just strongly disagreed that UM is two 5* players away from being at Bama's level.
We'll see once Peppers and Hand get on campus if they both come to Ann Arbor. I believe the only two 5 stars on our team last year were Kalis and Pipkins who were both true freshmen in their first game so they didn't play.
don't put words in my mouth. I said that Michigan could reach the level of LSU and Alabama if they got two top5 national players because I saw what it did for South Carolina. I don't think we're two ordinary 5 stars from Alabama.
Um.. I'll argue that UM's recruiting is comparable with Bama's.. it's not.
Rivals/Scout/ESPN/247 disagree with you
Getting both players would help us get on the same level as the Alabamas and LSUs of the world.
Well then I'd say we've made progress. It's a good day.
Interesting.. so UM's had the #1 class three of the last four seasons?
I agree. Getting Hand and peppers would help us get to the same level as the Alabamas and LSUs of the world.
Spurrier went 8-5 his 2nd year at SC
Lattimore's first season, SC went 9-5..
We have a higher rated class than Alabama on scout and a higher rated class than lsu on all of them I believe for 2012 and 2013. If we have a higher rated class than I'd say we're comparable.
Well they've gotten 4 more than us the past two recruiting classes. The top two players in the country would probably help quite a bit.
They beat Alabama and went to the SEC championship game
Find one time I've argued otherwise. This is such a tired routine.
Me thinking UM isn't setting the world on fire does not mean I think that Hoke hasn't improved the team.
Don't really care about LSU..
So 1 service over the last what, five years, had UM over Bama? And that was Scout, who had OSU has the #1 class
It's cute you think UM's close to the same level as Bama.. 41-14 says otherwise
And lost to Kentucky..
Again.. 8-5 v 9-5.. don't see a big difference
