It looks as though he is looking to play early... What are the chances of that happening?
Nice work from Webb though with "pointed words from Hoke"
From the Article:
"At the moment, the Buckeye State star plans to take in the experience in Ann Arbor this weekend, then take a similar trip to Columbus sometime in the next few weeks. However, there is a slight chance he will alter his timeline. A few pointed words from Brady Hoke during the visit might convince the talented youngster to end his process sooner rather than later.
What are they, you ask?
"Saying I'm going to (have the chance to) be right on the field (as a freshman)," Smith replied.
Here's two interviews that Hoke has done recently (Link 1 and Link 2). A lot of it is just fluff that makes you love the fact that Hoke is our coach (mainly the second one). And also an epic amount of coach speak (especially the first one) even for him.
"That still bugs me," Hoke said. "We moved the program a little bit, hopefully, in the right direction. We gave a lot of people a lot to cheer about, and that’s fun, because of the passion people have for Michigan football. But our goal is to win the Big Ten championship.
"We didn’t do it. We played two games on the road (against Michigan State and Iowa), and give credit to your opponents, but we didn’t play like Michigan. That sticks with ya."
This week's scouting report is on Ty Isaac, the Illinois running back that so many Michigan fans desperately seem to want. I think some of the criticisms of his running style have been overblown, although he does still have some holes in his game. Overall, I like him a little bit more now that I've really sat down and watched him.
This my one good deed for the day
Also note no BCS game for Sparty lol.
Per Tania Ganguli's Twitter, Chad Henne has signed with the Jags for two years. Adam Schefter confirms. Not the greatest team in the world, but it does give him an awesome chance to start thanks to a very questionable Blaine Gabbert.
As Schefter reported earlier, the Jags also signed WR Laurent Robinson (Dallas) for five years/$32.5 million. That at least gives him someone decent to throw to downfield. It'll be sad not to see Jake Long pass protecting for Henne anymore, but maybe he can be reunited with a former WR teammate like Manningham or Braylon.
Also not mentioned in the article he plans to workout with them on Saturday.
espn rumors also says it basically between Bills, 49ers and Dolphins.
