at least it's not just us?
Good pickup for MSU
This one goes out to the posters who asked why Michigan would invite recruits to a game in which they appeared to be outmatched. That's why.
Toe to toe with the No.3 team in the country despite a hobbling QB, and a struggling offense.
I bet the recruits enjoyed themselves despite the loss. They just witnessed Devin Gardner showing what it means to be a Michigan man, and coming one throw from being just about the biggest legend we've ever had in the game.
Interesting take on the increases in revenue in the B1G vs on-field success in football.
- The ADs in the B1G to include Smith and Brandon also are pointing towards recruiting geography, focus and schemes as a key difference.
- Size of staffs (Alabama significantly higher in non-coaching positions)
- SEC is 4th in funding behind B1G #1, PAC12, ACC
- Focus on funding non-revenue sports - B1G funds on average 4 more non-revenue sports than SEC and 6 more than Big12.
The national record for HS QB completions in a game was 47 (set by Grant Sherman, Kenton, OH). Trey Tinsley completed 50 in a game last weekend. Tinsley is junior QB of El Toro High School in Southern California. He's the son of former USC quarterback Scott Tinsley from the 1980s.
I could find no Scout or Rivals profile on him.
Topics discussed in this week's installment:
Southfield defensive lineman Malik McDowell has some new developments in his recruitment, and Brother Rice quarterback Alex Malzone recently jumped into Michigan's big board of 2015 quarterbacks. Plus, Brad and Tom discuss the impact of Lane Kiffin's firing at USC.
Here is the weekly 4 and 1 with TomVH and Brad Galli from WXYZ 7.
The guys discuss the impact of Michigan's back-to-back close wins over lesser competition, Jashon Cornell's upcoming Final 10, a unique story from foreign recruit Hjalte Froholdt, and the 2015 class' potential ranking.
