Tom Brady's morning went "very well" by some accounts.
This got me thinking about a report I saw on the World Wide Leader over the weekend. They showed the NFL rule for the range (in psi) for football inflation. Then they showed the following section which gave the punishment for violating the rule - $25,000 fine to the team.
It got me thinking about all the former QB's on TV saying " under inflating happens all the time, it's no big deal". Which I can understand that the QB would not think twice about getting an advantage (if there is one) at the risk of someone elses money.
If what I saw is true, I would think Tom and the Pats would be using this in their defense. Has anyone else heard of this fine? Or, do the Patriot's and Tom's fines fall under the "conduct detrimental..." area?
EDIT: Here is the segment from ESPN
The most popular college football ranking site, 247sports.com, has once again been the quickest to provide a ranking after a commitment to Michigan.
Benjamin St-Juste has been given a 3-star ranking by 247sports. This is his initial ranking and it may very well rise during the period until signing day as he is a relative unknown. He seems to be pegged as a guy who has a very good physical skillset and body build and hopefully, Harbaugh can mold him into a great college player. The 3-star ranking shows on the team page and the actual numerical score should be displayed starting tomorrow.
As you may be aware, 247sports was also the fastest to upgrade Dytarious Johnson to a 3-star upon his commitment to Michigan. Hopefully, the other sites fall into line and start to view our commits in the light they deserve.
If you have some time to kill and like movies about football, this is a pretty good one.
It's a documentary from 2001 on Massillon-Washington HS in Ohio, documenting their 1999 season. Shawn Crable was a Freshman on their team at the time of the filming.
It really shows how big HS football is in Ohio. I uploaded it because I noticed how difficult it was to find online to watch. It's one of my favorite movies because it's just crazy how into their high school football team these people are. I've seen nothing like it here in MI.
It's probably the closest anyone in the Midwest will get to being like Allen or Katy in Texas that have built multi-million dollar stadiums for HS teams.
Incoming Freshman kicker Andrew David is coming to Michigan from Massillon.
In fact, the amazing NFL-style indoor practice facility that Massillon has is named after Andrew David's grandfather.
Massillon plays in a 15,000-seat stadium.
2016 4 star DE Ron Johnson, Jr. tweeted this out.
My parents told me where I should go ,and my thoughts are the same— Ron Johnson Jr✨ (@RonJohn24) June 23, 2015
He, 4 star WR Brad Hawkins and 4 star Center Cesar Ruiz (2017) all visit tomorrow and all are from Camden HS in NJ.
Johnson may or may not be related to Michigan legend Ron Johnson who was a RB here from 1966-1968 and still holds the single game rushing record. I say this because he did play for the New York Giants and still resides in that NY/NJ area.
Tomorrow is gonna be a very interesting day.
