07:23 AM ET 11.14 | Defensive end Da'Shawn Hand out of Woodbridge, Va., is considered the nation's No. 1 recruit by Rivals.com, and, at 6-foot-4, 250 pounds with athletic ability and intelligence, it's no wonder. Hand will finally make his college decision at noon Thursday. Alabama, Florida and Michigan are the three teams remaining in the running. ... Though Wolverines fans are down on their team following back-to-back losses with negative rushing yardage, that shouldn't be a major detriment to the Wolverines' chances to bring in Hand. "He's been so meticulous throughout the process," said Rivals.com national recruiting analyst Mike Farrell. "It's not about how the team is playing, or he'd be signed, sealed, and delivered to Alabama. At this point, it's academics and comfort for him."

Relax, have another donut Hoke . . . you got no shot at this kid and very soon it will all be over for you. Then meatchicken can go out and find another DickRod (I think Holgerson might be available) and eff things up for another 5 yrs.

Get it all out. Yes, we know, all of you think an education from Alabama is no better than a 6th grade education in Michigan, blah, blah, blah, Sabinz is mean and unethical, blah, blah, blah, he'd murder his own grandmother for an NC, blah, blah, blah, Sabinz is going to Texas even though they don't really want him, blah, blah, blah.


Did I cover most of it?

Pretty much. Cept we have some Bama graduates around here and they are academically fine.

They lack judgement and objectivity when it comes to CFB however. Fly red flags with elephants all over them during football season...right in the middle of the rusty cow, aggie and red fader flags. And right next door to a horned toad flag.

I bet they predicted Alabama would win in 2011 and 2012. Then reality crept in....

They've definitely had braggin' rights lately cept for that one hiccup last November to the sheep molesters. But, the rusty cow and red fader faithful came to their support on that one. Wonder why?

One of the biggest puzzles to me is why the Red Fader faithful show more disdain for the agnuts than the rusty cow fans do? Agriculture school rivalry is the only reason I can think of. One likes sheep, the other cattle.

Reports I've read from a week ago (rumors, perhaps...maybe not) indicate at least seven TSUN players are disgruntled with the program and may transfer.

Sorry.... T&R rules state, and I quote, "Any time any article mentions an SEC team, SEC fans can higjack that thread in any way they deem appropriate."

Boom.

If he is considering academics then alabama is out.

November 14, 2013  10:58 AM ET

Actually, I'm hoping he shocks everyone and signs with Duke, Stanford, or GT.

Did not hear that, but as I have watched the Titanic on its maiden voyage I have been wondering where are all the 5* recruits Flounder landed? Other than Funchess (stud btw) I have not seen anybody contributing.
