***Recruiting Forum Rules - READ BEFORE POSTING***

The recruiting forum has gotten out of hand and we need to fix this right now. I admit that I myself may have slipped up in the past, but not anymore. The recruiting forum is not exempt from the rules for the rest of the forums. This is not a new rule, just a clarification of an existing one.

Links:

No factual information can be posted without a link to the source of that information. This means any time a player commits to a school, names a leader, drops a school from his list, etc. you must provide a link with your post. If you do not have a valid link supporting your information then keep it to yourself. Obviously, you don't need to link to your own personal opinions. Just make it clear that they are your opinions.

Acceptable Sources:

Most online newspapers and websites are acceptable. No premium information (info that you pay for) is to be posted. The only exception to that rule is if the information you are posting is in the header of a premium article, which is free for all to read. If the information is hidden behind the words "click here to subscribe," then don't even bother. Websites such as Buckeye Planet, IrishEvy, and MGoBlog are acceptable. However, only information from the articles/interviews/blog posts from these sites are permissible. Any information obtain on one of these sites' message boards should be assumed to be unreliable (even if you yourself trust it). Anything posted on Facebook is private information and should be treated that way.

Disciplinary Action:

Since this is a fresh reminder, everyone gets one freebie. The first time you break this rule, you will have your post deleted and that is it. If you break it a second time, your post will be deleted and you will get a warning. If you ignore the warning and break it a third time, you will receive an infraction.

Remember, these are Scott Wright's rules not mine. We want everyone to still have fun, but we can't keep ignoring the rules of the website.

    After doing nothing at WR for three years he was moved to CB. He is currently 4th or 5th on the depth chart, which is sad.

      I wouldn't say Derrick Williams has underachieved...

        Depends on how you define underachieving. He's been a good player, but hasn't played up to his potential. He was the #1 player in the country coming out of HS.

          Yea I guess, but he was injured his frosh year, and lst year had a first year QB.

          His stats won't blow you away, but he's a good player.

              I hate UM as much as the next gguy, but I highly doubt being horrid this year will effect recruiting. Michigan is Michigan and guys will still want to go there/

              BTW, I think Mallet is better than Heene right now and Hennie is super overrated/ I xpect him to be a 3rd-5th round pick.

                I wish I could agree with you, but watching Henne move the ball against Oregon and watching Mallett move the ball was like day and night. As much as people want to blame Henne for that INT and his poor completion percentage, he did make some good throws and was responsible for 60% of Michigan's first half yards and their only score of the game.

                  My one main recruiting concern is McGuffie. He likes the staff, and I'm sure one major point for him was he'd be getting a chance to play RB, where alot of teams were offering him as WR or CB. If someone from the staff isn't elevated, and there is a big staff turnover, will he still come to Michigan if he's unsure that they'll let him play RB? Hopefully a decision is made right after the season is over on coaching, so that if a completely new regime takes over, they can get the word out to all the commits that nothing has changed, if that's the case. But I'd hate to lose him because either he's unsure of his future with Michigan, or even worse, because a new staff comes in a tell's him they want him as a receiver now.

                    Back to the subject (I apologize for trailing off)

                    recruiting:
                    No recruit in their right mind would want to play deffense for Michigan unless they are just a huge fan of the school right now. They are no producing the talent like a powerhouse school should.
                    ummm not producing defensive talent?

                    4 Defensive Guys from UofM in the first 2 rounds...
                    Leon Hall CB 1st
                    Alan Branch DT 2nd
                    LaMarr Woodley LB 2nd

                      CB Boubacar Cissoko, LB Kenny Demens, and OT Dan O'Neill all state they are still committed to Michigan and plan on honoring their commitments.

                      http://www.detnews.com/apps/pbcs.dll...131/SPORTS0201

                      "I'm going to go there and fight for my position," Cissoko said. "I would like to play for Coach Carr for the next four years. Whoever comes in as coach, I'll play for.

                      Asked if there was any chance of him not going to Michigan, Cissoko said, "No. None whatsoever."

                      Demens chose Michigan over Michigan State and Nebraska and said he will keep his commitment.

                      "I'm going to be a man about this," Demens said. "I'm not backing down. I'm just going to go there and work hard.

                      "It does matter to me who they hire. I'd like to see someone on the staff, like Ron English, get hired but if it's someone else I would be OK with it. I would like to have a conversation with him be cool with him.

                      "I'm real close with my high school coach (Dan MacLean) and I want the same when I go to college. There is no chance I will change my mind."

                        Some encouraging words from Cissoko.


                        "I know I want to go to U-M ... i just want to take the visit because they've shown me some love, and it's hard for me to say no. I don't want to go to school there, I know I want to go to Michigan."

                        He added about visiting Illinois:

                        "It's kind've up to my family too; they are supposed to go with me. We have some family in Chicago and we're all supposed to go down there. So right now it looks like I'm going to be going ... its about 95%."

                        Cissoko has one more visit scheduled - what about that one?

                        "I'm supposed to go to Tennessee the 14th (of December), but I don't know about that trip. My family is supposed to go with me down there too ... but I might not do that trip."

                        And he added an interesting point:

                        "I know I want go to to Michigan ... I've been to these places before ...
                        -- I've been to LSU ... i went there the summer before my Junior year and met Les Miles.
                        -- I went to Illinois when Cortez (Smith, his teammate) went down there.
                        So I've seen them before ... and I know I want to go to Michigan."

                            As much as I like Jon Tenuta, I think Cissoko really liked Ron English and this may change his mind.

                              I wish I could find it again, but I read a story on Ron English, and the recruits and current players really seemed to like him alot and look up to him quite a bit.

                                Looks like Miles is now staying at LSU and Tenuna is staying at GT. That severally messes UM up and deservingly so after UM put him in such a bad position.
