Well it's official. My Cleveland Browns have finally named a new HC for 2014 and it's none other than the Bufallo Bills DC Mike Pettine. The executive staff for the Browns waited one month, allowed virtually all the available DC & OC candidates to find jobs elsewhere, and then hired a guy they could've hired 24 hours after firing Chud.
Strongly rumored to be Pettine's OC is none other than Cam Cameron
and n o word yet on possible DC and the DC will be the Bills Linebacker coach (presser going on now). I'm guessing Pettine got the job for no other reason than he was the first candidate they interviewed that didn't turn them down.
To preface - I am a Rivals guy. That is to say I get my crootin' info from Rivals.
I got to thinking how the meme on Hoke aside from the actual play on the football field has been "well at least he is killing it on the recruiting trail." I took a quick look at the class rankings...
RR hired 2007
RR responsible for classes 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011
2008 2009 2010 2011
UM 10 8 20 21
OSU 4 3 25 11
Hoke hired 2011
Hoke responsible for classes 2012, 2013 and 2014
2012 2013 2014
UM 7 5 27
OSU 4 2 2
It is 2014 and all, but sorry we aren't really doing that well on the recruiting trail : (
What is the formula?
Rivals Rating points + Rivals250 Bonus Points = Total Points
Rivals Rating (RR) Scale (Top 20 rated commitments)
(Rivals Rating = Points)
6.1 = 150 points
6.0 = 135 points
5.9 = 120 points
5.8 = 105 points
5.7 = 90 points
5.6 = 75 points
5.5 = 60 points
5.4 = 45 points
5.3 = 30 points
5.2 = 15 points
*Prospects without an assigned rating will count for no points. All FBS committed prospects will have a rating once evaluated and rankings are updated.
Now, perhaps he had a little help from the kid in the middle, but still, that is one incredible lift. And no bad weight on him by the looks of it.
PS - first attempt at a video embed, so I'm hoping for the best. If I failed, here is the regular old link: http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/highschool-prep-rally/uncommitted-four-star-football-recruit-bench-presses-515-163605665.html
I am suprised that this was not caught earlier but I saw that Michael Schofield draws praise and actually wins Resee's player of the day (at least in one of the analysts mind). Hopefully this really helps his draft stock. It would be great if both Lewan and Schofield go first round.
I know they had him practicing at guard but he pretty much dominated today on the OL/DL one on one drill at right tackle. He looked quick coming out of his stance and stout at the point of attack.
Well done Michael and I love seeing the winged helmet in the Senior Bowl highlight reels.
Question though... Where is Lewan? I haven't heard anything about him at all.
Sorry about the embed. No "old embed code" to choose from when using NFL network. I tried looking on YouTube but no luck.
