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

I like McCray at SLB. Put his hand in the dirt if needs be or drop into coverage. He has 8 picks, 3 returned for TDs in the last 2 years.
Glad 4 years are all that matters for you. We might as well scrap our program because we can't compete with MSU... There's a reason you hate Michigan so much, and here's a hint, it's not because you've beaten us 4 years in a row, it's because we dominated you for a century before that but according to most MSU fans that doesn't matter and we should just scrap our program because you guys are top dog in the state. You guys have had a lot of success the past 4 years, no need to act like an immature child about it.
Go Blue & Gig Em'!
11-2, with wins vs ND, Neb, tOSU, and VT in the Sugar Bowl. Michigan is doing just fine on the field. If you think losing out on 20 plan A guys to your #1 rival isn't going to hurt you in the future, then saying you're an idiot is an understatement.
This thread is about recruiting. The direct question was who do you think could decommit from your team. I thought McCray could if tOSU pushes hard. Based on recent history with Hoke and recruiting, I have no fear of a recruit flipping to MSU.
The question says "your team"...............Kite, OJ may flip, but he is not committed to "your team"
Kid has a bama tatoo on his arm
Hypothetical question: What happens if Reuben switches high schools to a school much closer to Athens? Would you be worried then?
More worried than now(Which isn't very much). So I would say moderately worried about him switching.
University of Alabama: The high mark of college football since 1892
Nobody except for Burns, but not to concerned about him either
Without self-knowledge there is no individuality
Yeh because the odds that MSU continues to dominate Michigan are so high.
I mean Michigan isn't crushing the recruiting trail, and doesn't hold a 2:1 all-time advantage.
Michigan was 11-2, MSU was11-3. If this was following one of RichRods 3, 5, or 7 win seasons, then there would be truth to it. As it is, Hoke won a BCS Bowl in his 1st season, I believe he is one of only 3 coaches to do that in their first season coaching a team.
Hoke is killing it on the recruiting trail also, as I have stated already in this thread. He is getting studs in the trenches, the most important position group, outside of QB, imo. A couple examples that helped Michigan and hurt MSU are Bosch and Kulger. Bosch visited MSU several times, MSU fans were feeling good about their chances. He visits Michigan the day after taking a visit to MSU, and commits to Michigan. Kulger was supposed to visit MSU for their Junior day. I heard from MSU fans about how he was their #1 oline guy and they felt he would be Green in the end. Visited Michigan the day before MSU's Junior day, and never made it to MSU after committing to Michigan.
Those 2 examples, plus the other 18 kids who have committed to Michigan with MSU offers since Hoke was hired, will hurt MSU down the road.
Losing to MSU doesn't define UM's season as a failure though. That would have little effect. How many flipped last year after four in a row? Plus I don't think there are too many UM-MSU recruiting battles this year...
Check out my 2 deep of UM's base 4-3 under defense, let me know your thoughts. Last updated: 3/28/12
You're right, there isn't. Of the ones so far this year, Michigan leads 5-0.
What's the lively hood of a program? Recruiting right? That's what I thought, run along Sparty.
Play along with the thread or GTFO, you insufferable douche.

Bain is a monster, but Ill settle for Whitfield
Would rather have Bain though
A DT class with him and Senat would keep the train at DT rollin
fsufsu said... I've got about 10 great stories on Lane but all you need to know is he will never be a loser, that's for sure.
You know what time it is
I think Texas keeps 'em all. I don't see any of them decommiting .
However history has shown that a recruit will bail on MSU if given the chance (see Pittman, Sevon)
I am a Buckeye...proof there is a God in Heaven who loves me.
Seriously doubt that. Been scouting/assessing RBs in-depth for almost 15 years. Kid is "the truth" and dominated what was considered the best classification in the nation last year in leading his team to a 14-0 record before losing to Grayson and Robert Nkemdiche in the Georgia AAAAA State Championship. In 2013 he'll be Bama's RB most comparable to Ingram & Richardson in size and skill-set.
Saw him win the 100m dash at a track meet last week and at 5'9, 205 pounds currently.......the people in the stands as well as other athletes competing kept saying they couldn't believe that a kid that swole could beat all the "typical" body-type sprinters because he was so bigger than everyone else in the race.
I'd say Artie Burns or OJ Howard as of now.

OK, just want to make sure I understand this correctly: um has, every year I think, had higher regarded recruiting classes than MSU, yet still have won 4 in a row?

Like I said, ummers, cherish your recruiting wins, MSU will cherish Paul...
You guys still have the "temporarily relocated to East Lansing" sign where he used to be?
Cherish Paul while you have it. Because it ain't lasting long.
I don't even know "Paul" is. That about sums up the importance of that game. Why Hoke has a countdown clock for that game alludes me... We could lose 10 in a row and recruits still wouldn't flip from UM to MooU.
