Not to thread jack but did our guys have any movement?
No doubt about that. I do find it alarming that virtually every Michigan recruit has fallen in the rankings on numerous sites though. They got committments from these guys so early that turned out to be a little overrated. I guess that's the risk you take by startinig to fill the class so early. You'd hope that your staff was good enough at evaluating talent though to have most of your guys performing well enough their senior year to move up in the rankings.
As studies have indicated, Michigan is consistently the most overranked football team year in and year out though when you compare preseason rank to post season rank. Thsese guys should fit right in.
Not yet; only the top 100 came out today. The new Rivals250 comes out tomorrow, with the rest of the 4-stars to follow on Wednesday. Not many MSU commits played in All-Star games, so I wouldn't expect a ton of movement outside of maybe Delton Williams.
Michigan State does not and will not run the 3-4 defense.

Did Damion Terry sleep with Farrell's wife?

"losing Caleb Benenoch is a blow that Dantonio will never recover from. Izzo has lost it as well. Hoke and Beilein own the state."
I don't know but the rivals guy has said something to the effect that Terry doesn't have great anticipation and only throws to "open receivers". I guess having a line that protects you and receivers that can get open AND the ability to hit those receivers consistently for big plays makes you not a great QB.
The first time MSU basketball aired in France the French surrendered to Tom Izzo just to be safe.
makes you a big PoS in my book

Winthrop Intelligence, a college sports research outfit, recently analyzed every recruiting class from 2006 to 2010, tracking how more than 11,000 prep stars affected their college programs' success. Winthrop found no correlation between the number of recruits with three or more stars on an FBS team and its subsequent winning percentages. "We checked more than 100 performance statistics, including points, yards and touchdowns," the company writes in a report. "We found no significant relationship between higher-ranked recruiting classes and better performance statistics."
Peter Keating writes for ESPN The Magazine that few things are more exciting than imagining how a blue-chip recruiting class will transform your favorite team. Too bad it rarely works out that way.
I personally like QBs that throw to receivers that are not open, especially into double coverage. I don't think I am going to like Terry.
No way Farrell is going to sign off on rating a PA kid with no Penn State offer/interest higher than 3 stars.
Sounds like you were a Brett Favre fan.
