I said it on Twitter last night and I'll say it again here today. If I'm a mid-range kid who is getting recruiting attention from Michigan and I think I want to commit, I am demanding my financial aid paperwork right then and there. If they won't offer it, I won't commit.
As Birm said, yes, there is an ugly side to the business, and yes, there are a lot of schools and coaches recruiting in similar fashions BUT it we've never seen it to this degree, this late in the process from any other coach. I don't want to think it's slimy because I know its more prevalent than we want to think but it really is gross.
