Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.
Doesn't it piss you guys off that we will probably never play App State again? I hate that. With Toledo, you know we are gonna get our shot when they come back around again. And then of course all of our Big Ten rivals and bowl rivals (USC). But App State....they are just gonna sit there forever...holding it over our heads.
People were mentioning in an earlier post about who is our 4th biggest rival....and that is great and all. But I want Appalachian State.
So I overheard a couple of guys talking about fantasy football of the NCAA variety at the bar the other night. But I never got a chance to ask them where or how they play.
Are there any websites on the intertubes in which this is possible? I know it's technically against collegiate rules or illegal or some other form of douchbaggery. I do all my fantasy leagues through Yahoo Sports and I haven't seen it on there before.
This would be wicked sweet if it were possible.
Jesse Scroggins, the last top 10 Pro-Style QB on Rivals list....decides between 3 large schools today...USC, Florida, or Tennessee. From Vols sources it is between USC and Tennessee.
Scroggins is from California. With all of the crap going on with Kiffin, it would be interesting if he pulled a QB at this level. It almost would then beg the question, is it viable that your head coach can act like a dumbass...and it works?
"George Washington (Philadelphia) prospect Sharrif Floyd informed ESPN affiliate Web site TheBigSpur.com that Penn State, North Carolina, Rutgers, Boston College, Ohio State and Michigan are "in good shape" for his pledge."
Good news to hear. Florida was making a strong play for Floyd, but looks like he'll be staying in the North. I think it's going to be a PSU-Michigan battle. PSU has already secured two commitments from top DT prospects, so hopefully that will help us a little. If we have a respectable season, I think our chances are good to land Floyd. He is also good friends with the Stokes family, so nice to have a Michigan player selling us to him.
Looks like Jewel Hampton, the next in line for departed starter Shonne Greene, is out for the season with a serious knee injury. No official statement from the coaching staff, but BHGP and Iowa's Scout and Rivals message boards pretty much have the drop on the news. Pretty big blow to Iowa's RB corp; next on the depth chart is Paki O'Mera, who is a walk-on, and Brandon Wegher, a true freshman. Wegher was 4 star recruit who was #14 APB on Rivals, so Iowa does have some good talent coming in. This news a big help to M or will Iowa recover?
A few interesting tidbits from ESPN Midwest Recruiting blogger:
1) Jerald Robinson has picked up quite a few offers since committing, but nothing for us to really sweat about.
2) "At first the Michigan coaches were talking about defense," Robinson said. "But after they saw me at their camp (in June) they said they want me to play wide receiver." I know several posters felt that he would be moved to the defensive side of the ball, but I guess that might just be put to rest.
