Saturday night Michigan couldn't keep up with Purdue, and as such the Wolverines lost a chance to sweep the home schedules of both the basktball and football team this year. C'est la vie.
Touch the Banner: Recruiting Update: February 27, 2012 - TTB runs down the list of new offers added to the 2013 offer board. This is a great resource for all you recruiting fanatics out there.

Tremendous: Ty Isaac Update - Next up in Michigan 2013 recruiting: talented skill position players. Outside of Laquon Treadwell there may be no one more sought after by this staff.
Ty made it clear that Michigan's recruiting success up front makes them a more attractive option but that he still wants to make the best decision for him. He also made it clear that the fact the class is filling up will not affect his timetable. This doesn't really matter though as the coaches will certainly leave a spot open for him. He referred to their big weekend as "absolutely crazy".
The goal here was always to maintain a site that set its own agenda, took nothing for granted and offered a steady signal amid the barrage of noise that currently passes for 24/7 sports coverage. I'm not sure how consistently it's lived up to those pretensions, and my admittedly wonky sensibility has not always fit inside the big-tent demands of the most visited sports site on the web. Still, I've enjoyed an astonishing, enviable level of freedom, and tried every day to live up to it. Sorry for the typos.
Dr. Saturday himself, Matt Hinton, is signing off. For any college football junkie this is a pretty sad day. Matt was one of my absolute favorite writers, and I will anxiously await his return to the interwebs.
Craig James keeps his shoes on no matter what the practice is in your house. This isn't Korea, dammit, and it never will be on his watch.
EDSBS. Craig James. Enough said.
Bonus Craig James after the jump...
Responded an ESPN spokesperson:"You are asking a hypothetical since we don’t intend to bring Craig [James] back." So it's on the record.— Richard Deitsch (@richarddeitsch) February 24, 2012
