"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."
Make a memory.
I wrote up a scouting report on Phoenix (AZ) Brophy Prep wide receiver Devon Allen. Most of us have seen the reports on his track speed. He can definitely scoot. He's not very shifty, but with a couple big leapers (who aren't extremely fast) in Jaron Dukes and Csont'e York, Allen would be a good complement to open up some underneath routes and stretch the defense.
York was given 3 stars and is rated as a 5.7. This seems pretty accurate considering he appears to be a solid recruit with a major weakness appearing to be breakaway speed/run after the catch ability. I'm curious to see whether any of our other 3 stars get a bump before it's all sad and done, but at this point I can see Conley becoming a 5.7 with everyone else staying where they're at.
Brady Hoke on Conference Realignment, Roy Roundtree, Kaleb Ringer, the Gentlemen's Agreement, and Beer
Brady Hoke spoke at the Agonis Club's 59th-annual awards banquet in his hometown of Kettering on Tuesday, He spoke on a number of topics including his time at Ball State, the supposed gentlemen's agreement between Big Ten coaches, conference realignment, Kaleb Ringer, and Roy Roundtree.
On his time at Ball St.:
“I had two goals at Ball State. One was to play football and the other was to drink every beer in Muncie, Ind.”
On the Gentlemen's agreement:
“No. 1, we have an actual signing day for a reason. That is, they can change their minds until they sign. This is competitive. This isn’t ... I’d like to say golf — don’t take offense. I’ve never heard of agreements or not agreements. Look, they’re 18 to 23 years old. They got a lot going on, more so now than when I was 18 to 23.”
On conference realignment:
“I think really in about three years you’ll see four super conferences, and I think the Big East will go away and maybe the ACC. But look, I’m just a coach. I don’t know all of it.”
On Kaleb Ringer:
“He had a great spring. He had over a 3.0 (GPA). He did a great job from the academic side of it. He did a nice job of learning the defense. He was awesome. I think he can be in the mix (for playing time).”
On Roy Roundtree:
“He’s doing great. He’s going to wear No. 21 in honor of (Heisman Trophy winner) Desmond Howard. It’s a big deal. Desmond is fired up. Roy is fired up. And I’m fired up.”
I found his comments on conference realignment to be particularly interesting, mainly because you'd think that he'd have some inside information on the topic, via discussion with Dave Brandon and what not. It'll be interesting to see what happens down the road.

If you go to the team rankings on Rivals 2012 still comes up but 2013 is in the dropdown menu. Great to see us on top by a pretty good margin. Go Blue!
I can't wait for MSU's pro combats this year. Way better than last years.
