Really cool post, which sums up how I feel about this extremely well.

What is that 3 top 100 recruits decommit now?  I would rather be in our situations of complaining about all the top recruits we are on not committing versus all these top recruits committing and than decommitting.

Miss him? He is doing a bang up job per their standards. Hey man 8-4 and losing a bowl game is top notching it to them now. Truth hurts.

Mark my words..I don't need acceptance. I'm catching interceptions on you innocent pedestrians.

I hate to see UM suffer on the field missing recruits, but at this point anything that gets hoke out of AA more quickly is a win in my book. 

Under BK, ND is 1-3 against Michigan ... and they've lost to Tulsa, USF, Navy and Pitt to boot. Their last national title was more than 25 years ago and they have been virtually irrelevant since Lou Holtz left in 1996. This has nothing to do with wins and losses. 

In all reality it is pretty evident that he was always waiting for ND to offer, it is where he wanted to be all along...just needed a backup plan IMO. Good luck to him wherever he ends up. Hell of a player for a 5'9" CB.

Would you rather lose to Ohio State and Michigan State to get him out quicker? 

Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.

Rather lose to OSU. Sparty is unbearable. At least OSU has long running success to stand on, sparty just thinks they are awesome cause they have started to become relevant in the last 5 years.

I wouldn't mind if Crawford gets the ball rolling with a verbal to TOSU. The Gray Box needs a little stimulation, its been asleep for quite a while and needs a few young men to wake it from its dormancy.

Notre Dame lean, but he's visiting Columbus in a week or so. Would be great to gaffle him from Michigan

Crawford could be the Damon Webb of this class.

I don't see that at all. Webb was a big-time recruiter and leader of the class. From everything I have seen Crawford has been doing none of that for mich's class.

However, he obviously wasn't 100% sold on M*chigan like Webb was for us.

Bet you can't say "Bert Bielma is a bumbling buffoon" five times fast.

Good point. Neither of them recruited for Michigan's class! 

but seriously, what recruiting pitches could he make?

While I agree completely, all jokes aside that is a cool f'n picture.

Would have certainly been nice to have SC, not denying that and I am sad he will not be a part of the class. 

That being said, we have 2 higher rated DB's already in this class in Kinnel and Taylor, and DB is probably the most talent laden unit on the roster with a lot of depth. Not too concerned.

Now if it was an OL we lost...hehe...

Where is Kinnel ranked higher than Crawford?

Not to be a debbie downer, but you should really cite sources when you straight up copy and paste them to give credit to the writer/publication. Long form copying and pasting is also against the commenting policy. For anyone that's interested, this comment originates from this Cleveland.com article from Doug Lesmerises, one of the better guys on the OSU beat.
