so much for that
Spadafore's suggestion that Horton might be looking to transfer? Bunk. Bunk, I say!
Says the AA News. The charge is a misdemeanor. Will he be back on the team? Should he? I dunno, since I know nothing about what actually went on.
From a Kentucky coach on Rivals. Hopefully UM can raid KY again this year. There are some high profile guys there again.
Update: No kidding, dude. Perusing the UK board reveals downright panic about UM returning to loot and plunder the rolling hills of Kentucky, pursuing four of the top five prospects in the state: Johnson, Corey Peters (who played right next to McKinney on the DL of Louisville Central), Justin Burke (The QB of Brandon Logan's LexCath team), and scatback/DB Javeare Turner.
Michigan is co-leader with UL for Peters, apparently. A UK poster had a conversation with Crabtree and gave an early line for the stars on these guys: probably 5 for Johnson, 4 for Peters and Burke, and 3 for Turner.
Says the Free Press. BE's discussing his prospects for the upcoming draft and saying Miami seems to be a good fit, which I have to strongly disagree with. Who will throw you the ball, Braylon?
Update: Typo fix. Also I said "News" instead of "Free Press." It's a blog, it's supposed to be shoddy. That's its charm.
That's "more of the same" for the acronymally challenged.
I could rehash my stance (Amaker obviously can't be judged on this year but things I see disturb me greatly) but you've heard that before, too. One new thing I can add is that I had my concerns nicely summarized by a single sequence against MSU: Michigan's gone on a nice little run to get it down to ten with a few minutes left in the game and plays an excellent defensive sequence that results in Neitzel jacking up an off-balance prayer of a three with time expiring on the shot clock. He bricks it, but no one boxes out Alan Anderson, he gets the offensive rebound, and MSU runs another 30 seconds off the clock before AA cans a short jumper.
What is Amaker doing during practice? I hope it's more than "let's play really good this weekend, guys!" followed by Abram raising his hand and saying "let's play well, Coach," followed by Amaker saying "Yeah! That's the ticket!"
I dunno, I like my student-athletes to be scared #$%*less by their coach. I mean, not Bobby Knight scared, but Red Berenson scared. I could see Amaker in a Care Bears episode as Friendly Mr. Coachy.
"Fundamentals make my tummy ouch."
Johnson steady at #2. Cogliano at #22. Not sure on the other UM players, as I am not a subscriber.
I'll bet the CSB a dollar that Cogs goes a lot closer to #22 than whatever ridiculous 6th round prediction they put up in their midterm rankings.
Update: Hensick checks in at #45, again a much, much more realistic projection than the CSB's ridiculousness.
