Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.
EA revealed today that RG3 will be on the cover of NCAA 13 this July, but he won't be the only person. He will share the cover with a former Heisman winner who wins a poll (the choices include Barry Sanders, Charlie Ward, of course Desmond, and that one running back from Ohio during the mid-90s). Voting begins March 13th.
Get the MGoBots ready, time to make Desmond the first 2-time cover athlete in the NCAA series (way after he was done playing at that).
1. Saban calls CB (and Georgia commit) Shaq Wiggins into his office on an unofficial visit to Alabama
2. Saban tells him that from hsi film, he hasn't seen cover skills like his in a long time
3. Tells Wiggns that he will offer him a scholarship if he commits to Alabama that day.
4. Wiggins says he's honored, but still chooses to remain with Georgia
5. Is promptly offered by 3 more SEC schools, like his verbal never happened.
A verbal in the sec, is kind of like strippers with a heart of gold. We know they exist, we just don't put much stock into them.
BREAKING: Rivals100 LB Mike McCray of Ohio has scheduled an announcement for his college selection bit.ly/wzVLwa
Just as a side note, McCray has a visit to Michigan scheduled for 3/6. That's usually a good sign when a recruit visits right before his decision.
For whatever reason, OSU has yet to offer.
Title says it all. 4.84 unofficial. 14th out of 27 DL (including DEs) that have run. At 306 lbs. Bruce Feldman is showing MM the love on Twitter.
EDIT: That means MM was 3rd fastest among DTs and put up the 3rd most reps on the bench of DTs. Damn.
A tweet from TREMENDOUS made me think about this, and I'm curious about everyone else's opinion.
the Tweet: "If #2 player in the country OT Laremy Tunsil still wants to take an official to Michigan, do you deny him?"
Considering the stance that Hoke has taken on committed players taking visits, and also considering that Hoke supposedly told each player that they were taking 5 OL in this class, wouldn't this seem hypocritical?
I guess my question is, should the coaching staff be holding up the same end of the deal that they expect the players to?
edit-This is a theoretical question, I have no idea what Hoke has told the players, and Tunsil obviously has not taken an official visit to Michigan. Mods feel free to delete, I was just curious about everyone else's opinion.
With the combine in full effect, a disappointing BBall loss in the rearview mirror and hockey off for a while, I thought this might be an interesting topic. Who is your NFL team and who do you want them to draft? Who do you think they will draft? OT-ish because most of us might want Michigan people on our draft lists.
I'm a Bears fan and I REALLY want them to draft Molk in the 2nd round. We need OL help like crazy and I think he's the best center in the draft. There's been talk of the Bears looking at Konz, but I think the 4" height difference is nothing compared to 41 vs. 18 reps on the bench. I mean, Hemingway benched more than Konz did. Sure the bench isn't that applicable to playing football, but still. you know what you're going to be tested on, you prep for the test.
There's also talk of the Bears taking Floyd in the 1st round. I feel "meh" about this. I'd rather have the Bears get a free agent proven wide out (Vincent Jackson?) than draft one, but I don't know who else works for the Bears at 19. I guess they could do both. We also need Safety help, but I'm not sure there is a good safety pick at 19.
Who is your team? Who do you want them to draft?
