looks like Brady Hoke's rule on visiting another school is just a "scare tactic". If I'm a recruit of his, I don't sweat his little rule anymore.
Funny thing is, all those on UM board were throwing some serious trash talk toward this kid, now they all love him again and say he's the man.

funny thing is, all the UM fans loved the idea of not letting them visit other schools and stuck up for it while we all said it was stupid and would not work. wondering what they are saying now.
Recruiting is becoming a very ugly "game". With internet, message boards, social media...it can be either a glorious thing to a kid or just plain punishing.
I really don't think that Hoke uses a scare tactic. I believe that Hoke tells these kids to commit when they are ready. Now, I do think that he sells and lives by the "first come, first serve" methodology. And I've got nothing against him for that. Dawson wants back in....so be it.
But Robo....come on....I remember a lot of "trash talk" going to a certain Mr. Dunn before Urban gave him a phone call, from the Buckeye fanbase. It gets ugly...no doubt. But as I wrote on our board....are you saying that if Jalin left the 2013 class, had Michigan at the top of his list, he wouldn't be faced with some trash talk? And to take it further than that, what if NSD came and he decided he wanted to be a Buckeye afterall??? You saying OSU fans wouldn't "all love him again"....hahaha. Don't mean to flame in the least....but so far in life I've learned these are the only CERTAIN things in anyone's life:
2) Democrats will almost NEVER side with a Republican (and vice versa)
3) Buckeyes will almost NEVER side with a Wolverine (and vice versa)
I think you are missing the bigger point. WE BEAT YOUR ASS!!!!
Yep....not sure how I could have "missed the point".....silly me. I thought we were talking about a recruit and Hoke's recruiting methods.
But yep...you're right...you won THE GAME this year. Congrats....again.
Actually the point was Brady's rule "not really being a rule"....and if I was a commit to Michigan, I'd go ahead and take visits to some nice sunny places.....
