why did AA censor my comment to Ted? It didnt insult Ted at all... time for AA to review their own community guidelines... or hire smarter people who can understand them and apply them. no?

Thomas Rawls Will Campbell Frank Clark Jibreel Black Michael Schofield Chris Bryant Richard Ash all need to have great off-seasons and continue to develop physically. check out this website, some articles talk about spring ball. <a href="" rel='nofollow'></a>

Campbell doesn't need to develop physically. He needs to 'play had', &quot;play angry', Who knows. Maybe if someone tells him one good year gets him millions in the NFL- that might do it.

Thank you Caleb for providing proof to Mr. Ted, hilarious stuff. You must've nailed it with the Taco Charlton thing, his name confused Ted apparently, lol! If his name was Paella, Ted might've thought he was from Spain maybe? As for me, I like Taco's and paella's and Burrito's, Viva La Hispanica/Latino Comida!!!

So Ted which of these commitments currently are from Mexico? Patrick Kugler - Wexford, PA Shane Morris - Warren, MI (This guy is left-handed. Maybe all Mexicans are left-handed?) Dymonte Thomas - Alliance, OH Kyle Bosch - Wheaton, IL Chris Fox - Parker, CO Jake Butt - Pickerington, OH Logan Tuley-Tillman - Peoria, IL (See Shane Morris) Wyatt Shallman - Novi, MI (Visited Cancun once when he was 14. Is this the recruit from Mexico?) Michael McCray - Trotwood, OH Jourdan Lewis - Detroit, MI David Dawson - Detroit, MI (He played a season in Texas. Did you confuse Texas with Mexico, because they are neighbors?) Jaron Dukes - Columbus, OH Taco Charlton - Pickerington, OH (maybe because he goes by &quot;Taco&quot; you assumed he is from Mexico?) @Ted, None of our recruits are FROM Mexico. Not even New Mexico. Even if they are of Hispanic descent, that doesn't make them from Mexico. My grandma is FROM Mexico and I am half Mexican. I am not FROM Mexico!!! I grew up in the Midwest in the USA. And just because a kid goes by &quot;Taco&quot; don't assume he's from Mexico.


Fri, Mar 9, 2012 : 6:13 a.m.

It's a joke. the kid named Taco Charlton from south of the border- Ohio.

It can't get here soon enough, this is a different kind of March Madness and I love them both. Should be a really interesting Spring Practice Season, how Will Denard progress? How Will Devin and Bellomy play now as we approach year 2 in the system? How will the D-Line play and recover from the graduations, our hardest hit area IMHO. The Defense, Kicking Game and progression of the Offense will all be things that I'll be paying close attention to, basically I'm an M Sports geek, Go Blue!!!


Thu, Mar 8, 2012 : 6:12 p.m.

Teddy your known to be an Urby come lustfully. But no worries, we'll have to make do with coach Hoke and our current staff. I have a hunch that their gonna do ok. I mean not every program can have dreamy coaching god like Urby.


Thu, Mar 8, 2012 : 5:05 p.m.

Excuse me Mick, but it was not me who did not even know we have a 2013 commit who is from Mexico. That lack of knowledge gives me a good indication that you don't know much when it comes to what's going on in the program. As for you BigBlue, you seem to be a Johny Come Lately as far as your support of Hoke and company is concerned.

Coach Borges was interviewed on the Huge show today and detailed what he expects Denard to improve on next fall. If the center position gets nailed down and the DL get work, this will be a very good to great team next year. Im not that worried about the DL because between Big Will, Q and Pip....there will be plenty of girth to toss around and fill up space and blockers....and perimeter players like Roh, Black and Thomas should be able to create off the edge and be solid...


Thu, Mar 8, 2012 : 6:07 a.m.

Thanks GoBigBlue. As for you Ted, I've been following M Football Recruiting since I was a kid in 1975, I've forgotten more than you'll probably ever know, so give me a break. People who know me well think I coulda been a scout, you don't know me. I'm one of the biggest M fans you'd ever meet, who are you to question me?


Thu, Mar 8, 2012 : 4:44 a.m.

Mick, to earn Ted's respect you have to gain a little Urba-lust.


Thu, Mar 8, 2012 : 1:10 a.m.

Maybe a geek , but obviously not a Michigan Man. You'll first need to pay closer attention to things like what is happening on the recruiting front if you want any respect from me.


Wed, Mar 7, 2012 : 9:20 p.m.

Kyle--thanks for the continued updates. I think there have been more football stories in the &quot;off season&quot; proving that at Michigan, there is no &quot;off-season&quot;. Just that time between practices. Love all of these updates as we can not get too much Michigan football. But let's get more softball stories and other great Michigan sports also.


Wed, Mar 7, 2012 : 8:24 p.m.

the spring games are a great recruiting venue. Now that Michigan is going to definetly take at least 3 linebackers this year, which means they will be up to 16 scholorships filled. we have LBs, O-Linemen, a QB, 2 TEs . We need RBs, D-linemen, and WRs, and DBs. But only 7 scholorships remain. We need to recruit SPEED. I anticipate 1 rb, 2 WRs, 3 D-linemen and 1 db.


Thu, Mar 8, 2012 : 4:46 a.m.

I don't need to read rivals anymore. I'm going to subscribe to your recruiting network. Gosh darn, if only Hoke could recruit like Urby. He's so darn dreamy


Wed, Mar 7, 2012 : 11:40 p.m.

So who's the recruit from Mexico? Did I miss something? BTW, I doubt that I did.


Wed, Mar 7, 2012 : 8:49 p.m.

And I want it NOW !!!


Wed, Mar 7, 2012 : 8:44 p.m.

The only big recruits on the D-Line have been Pipkins in the 2012 class and the recruit from Mexico in the 2013 class. It's very thin. We need to pull as good of an d-line class of 2013 as this offensive line class of 2013. Maybe even 4 players who rate from 5.9 to 6.1 on Rivals.
