Over 1450 guys competed at the Massillon combine today. Crawford got his invite.
Here are his unofficial stats:
Height: 5'9.5" Weight: 170 40: 4.50 Shuttle: 4.03 Vertical: 36.6 Overal SPARQ score: 113.55 (second overall behind Jonathan Dobie, a 6'1", 200 pound LB from Grand Ledge, MI).
By the way, check out the socks.
In light of the recent, and horrible, news about Jake Butt, I am curious about people's thoughts on Jordan Paskorz filling a substantial role at tight end this year. I know he has never done much, but he is a 5th year senior and played in 7 games last year. He never seemed to make a real impact on the games.
After a whole spring and summer as one of the main guys at TE, does he stand a chance to be a force there? I always wanted to see him do well, and I hope he fills a strong role for his last year here.
The Michigan coaches have setup an unofficial “Underclassmen Day” for the home basketball game against Wisconsin. It’s crazy to think that high school sophomores and freshmen are being invited to events already but that’s recruitin’. These young men won’t even be in college for another two to three years but with the Michigan coaches showing interest and having one 2016 recruit already committed, the process starts early.
I will continue to add to this list as I confirm whether or not the prospects will be in attendance. Until I can confirm it myself I will also include who reports whether or not prospects will be in attendance.

Said Mr. Wells: “The Report concludes that three starters on the Dolphins offensive line, Richie Incognito, John Jerry and Mike Pouncey, engaged in a pattern of harassment directed at not only Jonathan Martin, but also another young Dolphins offensive lineman and an assistant trainer. The Report finds that the assistant trainer repeatedly was the object of racial slurs and other racially derogatory language; that the other offensive lineman was subjected to homophobic name-calling and improper physical touching; and that Martin was taunted on a persistent basis with sexually explicit remarks about his sister and his mother and at times ridiculed with racial insults and other offensive comments.”
This may or may not be surprising, but it is definitely hard to believe in these findings after the release of the extensive text messages exchanged between Martin and Incognito.
I know this topic has been covered to death on this board, and I'd assume that Well's had way more information than we do, but this just makes the whole situation even more confusing...
Title says it all.
Great guy, good player, sad to see him go. Looks like the coaching change,and possibly the time off due to his car accident meant we weren't going to be spending the money on him at his age. If he had stayed healthy he would've caught near 1,000 yards last season, and might've had his contract renegotiated. I think he has a year or two left in him at a lower salary, I just wish it was in Detroit.
The guys over at Corn Nation, the Nebraska blog for SB-Nation, made a map showing where every single FBS recruit from 2002-2014 has come from.
Here's a still of it:
The interactive version is here. It's pretty fun to play around with. You can see, during coaching changes, where each coach emphasized.
If you want, they also made a 2014 Big Ten version
