Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.
According to this report, he will return to the NFL.
Hopefully this helps us with McQuay at least.
More from my evil colleague Jack. I apologize for not having killed him yet.
This is paywalled, but it appears that Michigan has been in contact with him and trying to set up visits.
He was/is a 4*, about 6'3 200 lbs.
EDIT: He was an Auburn commit since June 2011, but spent this year at prep school.
The headline says it all. Because of financial difficulties, a poor season, and a fired coach owed a buyout, Southern Miss will play their "home" game next year against Nebraska in Lincoln. There had been talk of it being moved to the Superdome or Arrowhead, but this is by far the most bizarre deal I've ever heard of.
Beginning in 2013, the Priority Points system will be modified to give more points to Michigan alums and athletes. Specifically, the priority points for one alumnus(a) will increase from 5 points to 20 points and the priority points for one athlete will increase from 10 points to 40 points. Alumni couples and athlete couples may combine their points to a max of 40 points and 80 points for each such category, respectively. [Chart below highlights these changes (note: an athlete is also assumed to be an alum for purposes of the calculations below). The plus numbers are netted as compared to current point values for their respective categories.]
This will cause significant priority point inflation for alums and athletes (and conversely, depreciation for non-alums and non-athletes). The magnitude of this change can be extrapolated into dollars by converting 1 point to $100 (i.e., which is the conversion rate based on direct donations to Michigan Athletics), which results in a net benefit to single alums in the amount of $1,500... and to athlete/alum couples of $9,000, etc.
Given that the current (as of 2012 based on the Michigan website) median for priority points is 21.2, this is a huge change.
What are your thoughts re: whether this is an appropriate change to properly value a Michigan degree and/or varsity athletic involvement? Does this unfairly affect the Michigan fans who are not alums?
Michigan offered Southfield (MI) Southfield class of 2014 defensive end Lawrence Marshall today.
