Ohio State has been getting the best of Michigan on the field and on the recruiting trail for almost this entire century thus far. However, there is one area of recruiting where the Wolverines lead 22-6 over the Buckeyes over the last 2.5 years. The only problem for UM is it's not a category you want to "win."

Bill "Bank" Greene makes his debut on the Bucknuts Morning 5 today, and as you can imagine he comes strong with opinions and analysis.

He just loves Haskins' more. Will Urban Meyer tell the media this week that the QB battle is still even? Or will he name a leader? What are the chances both QBs stick...
