Peppers at 10, which seems low.
With his arrival to campus this Saturday, it's unoffically Jabrill Peppers week. I know it's Bleacher Report but it's coming straight from the man himself:
Blowing up all over Twitter.
Apparently, he has decommitted and is considering offers from Cincinnati, LSU and Miami (YTM).
No idea if this is sparty pulling his scholarship or not.
Michigan State did not pull the offer per a very reliable source, anyone saying otherwise or not citing Jayru directly, is lying.
Graham Glasgow pleads guilty to a lesser charge of Operating while Visibly Impaired which is a misdemeanor with a potential penalty of 93 days in jail and a $350 fine. He will be sentenced July 14.
He admitted to drinking 10-12 beers and taking a hour and a half nap before driving to get a pizza.
Over the past year or two, we've heard general euphemisms regarding a "lack of leadership" in the team. What---specifically--does this mean?
The reason I ask is because although I haven't been around our program and I haven't been on a football team, I have been on other sports teams. And the successful ones had just the right balance of chemistry between work ethic, encouragement, but then guys keeping each other accountable also, but in a way that doesn't generate resentments and cliques within the team. Obviously with a large team some closer groups of friends will form, but at least you don't want animosity between groups. But at the same time teams need to keep things loose and fun so it isn't merely a brutal grind day in & day out to the point where people get burned out or dread every day of practice.
It's a complex balancing act, which means when people say "a lack of leadership" it could be a whole host of issues.
Is it a lack of work ethic? Are the guys partying too hard, not holding each other (including themselves) accountable, and suffering from BMOC disease? Or is it the opposite? Are guys taking things too seriously, wound up too tight to the point where there's no comradarie and team pride, and back-biting, blame shifting, practices are just grinds where everybody is on edge, etc?
Again, I'm by no stretch an insider, nor do I know the dynamic of the team currently. But I kept hearing the "lack of leadership" euphemism over last year, once in a blue moon you get hints from certain players in the media that we didn't "play like a family" but otherwise the euphemism stays just that--a euphemism.
And I don't want to air dirty laundry or stir things up regarding specific players on this board. I'm just wondering what people were referring to specifically with our team over the past year or two when they say "lack of leadership". Is it one or two common problems we keep having? Or just a hodgepodge of small reasons? Could people use concrete examples--even if specific player names are not used (example: player X does this; player Y and Z respond by doing that).

The season starts out with Appalachain State. Leading up to the game, ESPN decides to add 6 hours of college gameday to talk about The Horror. After Big and Rich get done singing, cameras zoom in to the set with Corso, Fowler, Desmond, and Herbstreit all holding beers.. After a few minutes of Chris Fowler talking, Herby abruptly takes his shirt off, swirls it in the air, and flips off the camera. Following the episode, ESPN announced that it has fired Kirk Herbstreit and is hiring Denard to replace him. Kickoff brings more good fortune as Jabrill Peppers returns the opening kickoff hurdling all 11 ASU players enroute to the endzone. Following that touchdown, App State fumbles the next 5 kickoffs for TDs which makes the score 42-0. Gardner then throws a couple 80 yard passing TDs and has a couple of 80 yard rushing TDs to make the score 91-0 at halftime. The Mountaineers decide to forfeit the game at halftime citing player safety. Following the game, Ohio State is found to be sponsoring the underground drug cartels in Colombia and the school is shut down by the federal government.
