    Michigan assistant insults recruit

    Interesting strategy by UM...

    ...In fact, Neal's father -- Abraham Hoskins Jr., a former college receiver -- was leaning toward pushing his son to Michigan.
    But then, things changed.

    "Michigan was a powerhouse, they came in and they stormed us, they made one bad statement and it was over," Hoskins told 1620 on air. "They said without football, Daishon wouldn't be able to go to Michigan. Like we couldn't afford to send him there, or that we couldn't get him in academically.

    "Once he said that, we pretty much escorted him out of the house."

    Neal continued by stating: "(They) basically tried to call me stupid in front of my face."

    I'd love to pile on, but I would bet just about anything that this was some sort of misunderstanding. Michigan can't respond, so we will never know. No loss for the kid or Michigan, IMO. Neal is a very raw talent and Michigan would have been taking a chance on him. They didn't even offer him until yesterday, from what I have read.

    Raj: Excuse me, I can't be drinking, I'm about to make an important scientific discovery here!
    Howard:What? Galileo did his best work while drinking wine!
    Raj: How do you know that?
    Howard: He was Italian, it's a reasonable assumption.
    Raj: Dude, can you even open your mouth without saying a cultural stereotype?
    Howard: I'm sorry Galileo drank diet sprite!

    Neal should have immediately told the recruiter that HE would likely be unemployed if it weren't for Michigan football.

    According to 247 Sports, the kid is rated the #1 recruit in Nebraska, but only the #673 recruit in the country. I wouldn't have thought the top guy in Nebraska would have been nearly that low nationally.

    They still play largely 6 man football there?
