Comment From Guest

Boo no more Dunn

8:33

Comment From John

sorry Dunn, but u made a huge mistake. Enjoy the spread kid

8:33

ace williams: so . . yeah, the news has spread like wild-fire.

8:34

ace williams: Michigan coaches heard about 2 hrs ago from Bri'onte. Very disappointing. He is going to OSU for sure now . . .

8:34

ace williams: I was hoping the news wouldnt break before this chat so we could break it here but oh well....

8:34

Comment From John

Is Payton going elsewhere?

8:34

ace williams: I dont think Payton is going to end up at Michigan

8:35

ace williams: Payton is going to end up at Cal and its pretty much Chesson at this point for WR

8:35

ace williams: This class might end up with little flare down the stretch

8:35

Comment From Guest

thoughts on dunn reaffirming to Ohio two coach cheaters?

Vote now - Do you like Michigan wearing alternative jerseys?

8:36

ace williams: Dunn is an OSU fan . . . tough to turn him. Imagine if you were headed to Michigan at 18 and the same stuff happened that did at OSU. Would it be easy for you to go to OSU?

8:36

ace williams: would be tough for me

8:36

Comment From gml41

Urban burning bridges already. How is the situation in C-Bus going over with Brady at Schembechler hall?

8:37

ace williams: gml41 . . what do you mean?

8:37

Comment From Jason

Bummed about the Dunn news. Makes me wonder how much we are going to have to worry about Meyer in recruiting?

8:37

ace williams: seems like he is making a splash . . . to be expected though. Meyer is an all-time great coach. 2 Natl Championships.

8:37

Comment From Jman

Well...sounds like bad news on the Dunn front unfortunately...

8:37

Comment From dog

Since dunn just re-affirmed his commitment, who do you think we finish with?

8:37

ace williams: I do not expect Michigan to take another RB in 2012 class

8:37

Comment From Grey

Thoughts on Dunn reaffirming to Ohio Two Coach Cheaters?

8:38

ace williams: kid grew up loving OSU . . . tough to swing that our way

8:38

Comment From Brionte Dunn

I cant wait to run for 600 yards a year!

8:38

Comment From Guest

I think the kid did what he thought was best we can't hate on him!

8:38

Comment From John

Anything new with Garnett or banner?

8:38

ace williams: Banner is going to go to OU I believe. I like our chances with Garnett. Wont decide for a while but I expect him to come to AA

8:39

Comment From Section_6

Damn, Ace you are right, I never give correct, credible insider info. Yet another recruit I whiffed on.

8:39

ace williams: Section_6 . . . say what?

8:39

ace williams: Section_6 didnt you guarantee Dunn to Michigan?

8:39

Comment From Jman

Any ideas who we may go after for RB for 2012 or are the coaches satisfied with drake Johnson?

8:40

ace williams: satisfied

8:40

Comment From Daniel

How you feeling about Josh Garnett post ND visit?

8:40

ace williams: He seemed to like ND but his coach has put the word out that Michigan is still #1 for him

8:40

ace williams: think it comes down to Mich and Stanford

8:40

Comment From Jason

Do you think this will impact the commitement of Dymonte Thomas

8:40

ace williams: Naw, Thomas is all blue

8:40

Comment From Mike Espinoza

I thought he didn't wanna be in the spread? A huge talent wastes in my opinion

8:41

ace williams: seems like a waste for Dunn to go to OSU to me . . . .

8:41

Comment From John

Prediction for the other wr in this class? Tell me it's not chesson

8:41

ace williams: Its Chesson

8:41

Comment From Skeptic

Any chance Burbidge decommits and goes blue?... after pittman left that would kill msu

8:41

ace williams: no chance at this point on Burbridge

8:41

Comment From dillanf

Is michigan going to recruit another running back now that dunn is out of the picture

8:41

ace williams: no

8:41

Comment From Jeremy

What is the realistic final 5?

8:42

ace williams: the picture is getting fuzzy . . a couple guys everyone was sure we would get have given the word that they wont come . . . i think 2-3 of the last commits will be folks no one is talking about

8:42

Comment From Chris

Dunn tweeted earlier today "about to get tatted" come on man, that's just too funny to be irony

8:42

ace williams: haha!

8:43

ace williams: He is surrounded by talent at St Eds . . . i dont think he is a high talent but we may take him in the last few weeks if we strike out on some others

8:43

Comment From Timmy

Whats are you hearing about Sam Grant?

8:43

Comment From Mike Espinoza

Who do u think we really have a chance with forour last 5 commits

8:44

ace williams: realistic: Garnett, Chesson are most likely . . . i believe we see a TE and QB but not going to speculate on names. too many names on the board right now

8:45

Comment From Guest

I saw Payton's last game against Westlake...very disappointing...the kid didn't do anything.

8:45

ace williams: he is going to Cal

8:45

Comment From Guest

So now where do we go with last 5 spots ? Garnett? Etc

8:45

Comment From John

Are we going to lose yuri to ND?

8:45

ace williams: no, i think Yuri ends up here

8:46

ace williams: Yuri, Garnett, Chesson are most likely to commit that I know of

8:46

ace williams: i think we have a good shot with Reeves too . . might take him and Yuri

8:46

Comment From Chris

So if Payton is out, what the backup plan for Chesson if he says no?

8:48

ace williams: The kid from Ohio Monty Madaris is an option at WR if no CHesson

8:48

Comment From Section_6

Ace, why am I always wrong?

8:48

ace williams: b/c you are a chump

8:48

Comment From Guest

Wow so you expect this class to bring in no more big names! Scout has Ohio Upto 9 now already!

8:48

ace williams: NO! I expect 3 big names at least

8:48

Comment From Charles

What do you think of our chances with Yuri Wright, Jordan Diamond, Alex Kozan, Josh Garnett

8:49

ace williams: Alex Kozan is one who is going to have the heat turned up on

8:49

ace williams: The coaches have decided that it is in their best interest to grab 2 more OL

8:49

ace williams: but wont take a lower talent

8:49

Comment From Guest

So urban knows nothing is gonna happen to Ohio basically? Correct

8:49

8:56

Comment From joe

9:04

9:04

ace williams: national press would have had a field day in our favor if dunn came

9:04

Comment From LSA98

any reason for qb recruit or is it to make sure to take one in each class?

9:06

ace williams: a couple reasons for a QB:

1. Bellomy wont win a Big Ten title here

2. Gardner is probably not going to get a 5th yr

3. What happens if Shane goes down in 2014?

9:06

Comment From Skeptic

9:08

Comment From Gary

9:09

ace williams: they like the roster and Wormley is going to move to DT

9:09

Comment From PourSomeSugarOnMe

Charles that's been asked already. Read the chat before you post.

9:09

Comment From jack

Evan Boehm would be great too

9:09

Comment From Ken

Devin Fuller he is a Qb I have heard he was in the mix early but not so much lately

9:09

ace williams: not so much lately

9:09

Comment From Brian

What does Urban Meyer say to recruits to disable any and all logical reasoning skills? Or perhaps are they predisposed to making idiotic decisions like playing for a coach who has never had a 1,000 yard rusher despite playing in a primarily rushing offensive philosophy... Maybe Bri'onte Dunn is a complete idiot. Maybe we don't want him in Ann Arbor...

9:09

ace williams: he is flashing 2 NC rings and his immediate success everywhere

9:10

Comment From Gary

I saw on the RIVALS site that Mario O was told the position he will be playing. Do you have this info?

9:10

ace williams: has anything changed?

9:10

9:11

Comment From Gary

Can we all assume that OHIO has close friends at the NCAA?

9:11

ace williams: haha no Gary

9:11

Comment From jack

I've ehard that OSU will receive a one year bowl ban and loss of 15 scholarships

9:11

ace williams: that would be weak in my opinion. wonder what USC would have to say on that

9:11

Comment From Joe from gr

Well looks like its Ohio vs Michigan back to the old days!

9:11

Comment From Guest

cmon charles get real. You have the worst questions in here.

9:11

Comment From Gary

We don't want Zeke Pike!!!

9:11

9:13

Comment From Brionte Dunn

Dymonte, spell ur name right bruh

9:13

Comment From Brian

Why did a five star prospect decommit from Penn State (child rape U) and then commit to Ohio (look the other way U)? It really says something about a kid's character doesn't it?

9:13

ace williams: sex abuse if a little worse than extra benefits Brian

9:14

Comment From Gary

9:19

ace williams: yes he is done with Michigan

9:19

Comment From Brian

Why would anybody be excited about Brian Kelly being at their house? I think fear is a more accurate word to describe the prudent emotional response.

9:19

Comment From Dunns Uncle

Ace why aren't my questions showing up? I've asked some really good ones.

9:19

ace williams: getting bombarded Dunns Uncle

Comment From Gary

J-RON??

9:38

Comment From Dunns Uncle

I thought B1G rule stated 28 was max?

9:39

ace williams: Big Ten rule is 28 for one class . . . we can backdate with EEs

9:39

Comment From Brian

The Big 10 has rules regarding oversigning that the SEC doesn't have.

9:39

ace williams: read the fine print on that rule Brian

9:40

Comment From Gary

28 is the most you can sign in one year, even with early enrollees. That's what Sam Webb has been saying

9:40

ace williams: Sam Webb is WRONG

9:40

Comment From First Name last Name

9:42

ace williams: Taylor will play next year more

9:42

Comment From Skeptic

I see youre mentioning Ross now as a possibility to start next year... I think hes much better than RJS. Coaches feeling that way now too?

9:42

ace williams: i havent heard speculation on starters of freshman ., . . this is going off of info i got from reaching out to several HS coaches recently

9:43

ace williams: I have had a man crush on RJS that may have blinded my judgement

9:43

Comment From bill m

who was the last good player that came from cass tech cause the players there havent done shit for michigan

9:43

ace williams: seems that way right?

9:44

ace williams: Kid that went to LSU - Barksdale

9:44

Comment From Jason

Do you think Standifer not coming impacts the recruitement of treadwell

9:44

ace williams: Treadwell said is wont effect him . . i believe him

9:44

Comment From Ethan

Aside from Treadwell, what other WRs are we in good shape for in a big WR 2013 class?

9:44

ace williams: I dont speculate in 2013 until February

9:44

Comment From Gary

Who do you like more, Chesson or Madaris?

9:44

ace williams: Chesson

9:44

Comment From ThoseWhoStayUofM

Why is Jehu Chesson not a four star? I think this kid could be great... honestly. Watch his film... He is big and fast. Scout says he isn't illusive after the catch which is total bull. He is a very good receiver.

9:45

ace williams: i am not too high on Chesson either

9:45

Comment From Aaron

Any chance Dunns cousin decommites

9:45

Comment From Mike

9:46

Comment From First Name last Name

why have 2 duel-threat qb's if their gunna be a pro offense? i get scrambling, but henne brady navarre weren't duel threat

9:46

Comment From First Name last Name

9:47

Comment From Eric

Thomas Gordon is solid...from Cass Tech

9:47

Comment From Corey

Did you not watch the Brady 6 on ESPN? They clearly mention he was not a highly rated recruit.

9:48

ace williams: i dont need an ESPN show that doesnt know shit to tell me what I KNOW.

9:48

ace williams: Brady would have been a top ten QB . . . top 150 nationally

9:48

ace williams: if the major services existed then

9:49

ace williams: Brady recruiting video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2_wrlz3O2lg

9:49

Comment From bill m

cass tech is not a very good pipe line for michigan lets find another high school so who is a stud or even good player that has come from there ?

9:49

Comment From bill m

ricardo miller was a four star and he isnt very good

9:49

Comment From Michael

Do we have a chance with jordan payton still?

9:49

ace williams: no on Payton

9:49

Comment From chet

9:50

Comment From sccoby doo likes turtles

is jeremy jackson gunna be good? kid looks scared and all discombobulated when he's on the field

9:50

ace williams: Jackson will be a role player but contribute here

9:50

Comment From bro

Why not Furman at RB? Great H.S. career at RB.

9:50

ace williams: ya never know....

9:50

Comment From sccoby doo likes turtles

9:51

ace williams: Mister Simpson the RB who played at M

9:51

Comment From Eric

Is Will Campbell gonna step it up next season?

9:51

ace williams: I expect a big SR year from WIll

9:51

Comment From sccoby doo likes turtles

brady was the number 3 qb and 4 stars. enough

9:51

Comment From ThoseWhoStayUofM

Michigan can only take 25 recruits and if it wants to take 28, it needs to petition the Big 10 for the additional 3 spots. That is the Big 10 rule. Please cite where you heard otherwise.

9:51

Comment From chet

haha, i went to school with brady. he worked harder than most, but he said himself he wasnt highly rated

9:52

ace williams: Tim Tebow also claims he wasnt recruited in a commercial I keep seeing

9:52

ace williams: THOSE - - Here is my source. Brady Hoke.

9:52

Comment From Sal

Why do you think Roundtree is not part of the offense more? I thought for sure he would have had a killer season.?

9:53

ace williams: he lost Denards confidence last yr . . . and struggled to get open. He will be the #3 option again next yr

9:53

ace williams: funny how Odoms and Roundtree were 'stars' as frosh/soph but neither made much impact as upper classman

9:54

Comment From chet

what you are a joke, i tended to believe you up until brady, get real

9:55

ace williams: chet - get real yourself. My dads old recruiting magazines from the 90s spell it out. Brady had offers from all kinds of big schools and was 2-3rd best QB in CA

9:55

Comment From chet

hoke wasnt the only one that recruited him, he was the secondary guy, hoke did the work, but he didnt get him

9:56

Comment From all over the place

hey ace, i heard a rumor that tom brady isn't going to cmmit to michigan this year. could we talk about someone else that is relevant?

9:56

ace williams: Gallon and Stonum . . will Tree playing a lot in 3WR sets

9:56

ace williams: 5 more min guys . . . any last questions on the team?

9:56

Comment From Kurtis

So who are the starting receivers next year?

9:58

Comment From Gary

Does Ricardo Miller have a future at TE? Or is he just there for depth?

9:58

ace williams: Miller needs an attitude adjustment on the field. guys doesnt play hard

9:58

ace williams: if he focuses, he can start next yr

9:58

Comment From Sal

I would like to see more screens and throw back to TE.

9:58

Comment From woodrow

Looking forward to any updates next week on bowl preparation. Thanks Ace

9:59

ace williams: thanks Wood

9:59

Comment From Sal

Who is going to step up next year at TE

10:00

ace williams: We wont see much TE use next yr . . . Miller will get snaps though

10:00

Comment From Painter Smurf

Has Q Wash developed at all this season behind the scenes? Seems like UM could really use him next year.

10:00

ace williams: i dont see Q being a starter at Michigan

10:00

Comment From wonder
