"Rodrick Williams Jr.'s 10-month old, 2-foot-long savannah monitor named "Kill" gets the RB some strange looks when they go for walks together."
Article is over at ESPN but Denard should have a pretty good chance at competing for this deal.
The WWL however thinks there are a few others to look out for:
Brick Haley DL coach for LSU (former Baylor DC/Chicago Bears DL coach)
Jim Panagos DL coach for Rutgers (impressive resume (national DL coach of year in 2009, 39th total rushing defense at UCF in 2007, 35th total rushing defense at UCF in 2008, 4th total rushing defense at UCF in 2009, 8th total rushing defense at UCF in 2010, 16th total rushing defense at UCF in 2011, 6th total rushing defense at Rutgers in 2012)
Apparently, Jerry Montgomery has left for Oklahoma...he was our primary recruiter for our three current commitments.
From the Scout article that isn't paywalled: "Contract details weren’t available at press time, but sources indicate that Michigan offered a competitive compensation package to Montgomery, but ultimately he felt the opportunity at Oklahoma was clearly one he couldn’t pass up."
I'm guessing they made him recruiting coordinator, which is something we couldn't match with Hecklinski here.
I got the Hope for Pohakee kickstarter update tonight and saw that Martavious linked Vincent Smith' new project. It seems that Smith is seeking funds to start teaching art classes in Pohakee which is great. I remember a post and article from over the summer that mentioned something about Smith and his art.
Can't say I'm the biggest art buff, but I support what Smith is trying to do. MGOBLOG has been great at getting these kickstarters going and helping an ex-player is pretty cool too.
Here is the link:
Also remember this guy almost got killed by Clowney, least you could do is donate a couple of bucks.
Iowa LB Jim Poggi, brother of Henry Poggi, took a medical hardship due to persistent injuries. The part I didn't know was that his brother was one of the players who was hospitalized with rhabdomyolysis from that Iowa offseason workout a couple years back. Tough break for the kid.
In other news, Iowa FB Brad Rogers also was took a medical hardship as well. AIRBHG?
