Then about 3 years ago it got to the point where every team now has about 3-4 black players with long hair.

Then about a year ago, now there is one white player with long hair on most teams -- ala Fox from ND or Matthews from GB.

I dont get it. I had fairly long hair soph year in college in 1980. it was a pain in the arse. never again.

I'd be afraid that someone would drag me down by it. See: Troy Polamalu and Larry Johnson

Not only that but the names are pretty unusual as well, with the exception of Finney. Is this the reason why we passed on Mike Smithburg :laugh:

Zane looks like an extra from a Kid N' Play movie.

Yeah, pretty sure Josh is an Illinois fan from what I have seen/heard the last few years throughout his commitment. Get him on campus for his official, I think we get him.

Hope Bailey burns him a bunch the next 4 years if that's the case.

Edit: Don't know when we play Michigan again but it may not be while the two are in school.

Well not sure Reon will be playing any way. Have fun sitting the bench Reon. Possibility of starting next year, now he'll sit for 2 maybe 3 years. Good luck to you.

Thats the thing i dont get. He wont play at Michigan for a while, if at all. He probably would have played a lot here. I guess going to parties are more important.

Ticks me off man. He would have a chance to play from day 1 here. It's same old story, different day. I don't know that recruits will ever realize this stuff.

After seeing that tweet from him it certainly makes me wonder what his priorities are.

If he doesn't want to be here, fine. Have fun riding the pine and hoping for a chance instead of coming and potentially playing right away.

On to the next one.

Don't think it's gonna happen. We'll lose a few, gain a few. Happens to everyone...

A lot of our recruits would probably switch if Michigan offered them a ride...

Really guys? He's an 18 year old kid. Wish m well and move on. Embarrassing that we have people wishing he never plays etc.

And if you were a HS recruit you would pick Michigan too. Remember UM isn't telling him he won't play. They're saying he will play and he's a kid who's good at football so he believes he can play too.

And questioning his priorities...ha...damn right he wants to have a good time! And good for him. As I said, wish him well and we'll move on. We'be seem this coming for weeks now anyway.

And i am damn sick and tired of seeing this crap. we have to work our butt off to get a good player to come here. All Michigan has to do is offer a player and they commit. It is really sad and pretty unfair when you think about it.
