Wolverine Wednesday: The News Just Keeps Getting Worse

The Wolverines can't seem to catch a break.  The news since the ND game seems like it just keeps getting worse and worse. 

If you haven't heard already,  the #2 player in the 2015 class George Campbell has de-committed from the Wolverines.   He did it on Friday and didn't want to news to leak out right away. 

He committed to the Wolverines in July on a visit and is teammates with Mason Cole who will be enrolling in Ann Arbor in a couple of weeks. 

George is 6'4, 185 pounds WR and runs a 4.3 40.  He was 1 of only 5 juniors invited to Nike's Opening in the summer. 

Recruiting insiders don't believe Michigan has much of a chance in getting George back in the class.   Florida State, Alabama and others are very high on the WR and he will be looking at all his options with teams not playing in the Copper Bowl.   Not sure you can blame the kid after watching Michigan's offense this year.

I really wonder how much support Big Al has at Schembechler Hall right now  There certainly has to be a better way to spend $700K a year. 

I guess the upside of playing in a Bowl Game in December gives you plenty of time to consider and make staff changes.

Recruits would like a chance at a national championship....just a decent chance. As long as Borges is around, for so many reasons, there is absolutely no chance! I hope a change is made soon or recruiting will suffer greatly.

Amen Chuck!

Joe Holcomb said...'re saying Michigan might lose a recruiting battle with Alabama over a top recruit? I absolutely don't believe it! Oh, forget that last comment....I just remembered Nov. 14.

Josh Garnett, Jake Fisher, Laquan Treadwell, DaShawn Hand, etc, etc, etc...
Until Michigan is a annual contender, not just for the Big Ten, but in the National Title conversation, we are going to continue to lose top recruits to the Alabamas, ohio, etc etc etc.
That's why the excuses have gotten OLD, this is MICHIGAN damn it!
Having a down year is one thing, having five out of six, is unacceptable, no matter the reasons.
