Michigan got a big 2014 commitment today and we will hit that on Thursday.

Ole Miss had an un-believable day.  Everyone thinks they are cheating.  

MSU has the number 42th ranked class in the country.   Arizona has the 25th if you follow Michigan's former coaching staff.  Michigan is #2 and OSU is #1  the next Big Ten team is Nebraska at #11.  (all ranking via Scout)

Not much news out of Hoke's presser: 

  • He got confused on some WR and DB's names
  • Was looking for size from the WR's and DB's he recruited
  • Wanted a couple TE's
  • He is recruiting " Michigan type" of players.  Smart and physical.
  • He doesn't follow star rankings and said, Kovacs was rated a Moon because he didn't have any stars but is a "football player"
  • Hoke likes to offer long snappers and feels that is an important position.
  • Prefers kids to be kids and if they want to enroll early that is a family decision.

How about that game last night?

I thought the Wolverines were a bit tired and were out of sync.   I didn't see much movement on offense and it seemed like OSU got every rebound.   Still they managed to sneak out a win.  

I love Burke but when it's the last shot of the game, I would prefer Hardaway try to beat his guy for a 3 then Burke try to break down the best defender in the nation in Craft.  

How can we get Nik some more looks?  He needs more touches!  So does GR3 (we could also use a few more boards from you big fella).   This is a killer stretch for the team and hopefully they get some rest before the Wisconsin game.
