"What (Michigan coaches) told me is that they're focusing on point guards right now, but if anything opens up, they'll definitely come back on and recruit me as hard as they were," said Towns
It's no secreet that JH is an emotional, high octane coach whose style infects his players with enthusiasm. I personally find that style of coaching entertaining and seemingly a great fir for the college game. However,there are other college and professional coaches who have been a bit less demonstative, yet also experienced a great degree of success. I think Harbaugh is reminiscent of the Bo, Lombardi and George Allen school of coaching. The other side of the coin: Tom Landry, Bill Walsh and other, more stoic coaches.
What are your thoughts regarding style, fit and potential for generall overall success (wins) and more specifically, at Michigan?
Will Michigan host a night game in 2015? Signs are now pointing to no. I know the late starts generate a lot of debate, but I actually like at least one night game a year. This article was created in part because lately there have been doubts about whether or not Michigan will host a night game this year.
On Tuesday, Rivals mods posted in a thread that they are hearing from the administration that Michigan has backed away from having MSU as a night game and are now hearing that BYU or any other team for that matter may be ruled out as well. The AD doesn't want a November night game or a home opener night game. That leaves UNLV (not really an option, BYU (a very good option in my opinion), Northwestern and Rutgers. Count Rutgers out for the November cold and Northwestern may not move the needle much.
Personally, I would be disappointed to miss a night game at the Big House this year? How does everyone else feel about this?
Edit: I did email the Athletic Department on this subject Tuesday and the response I received was that they were waiting on ABC/ESPN to finalize some TV times before an announcement was made. So, maybe this isn't over just yet.
Saline RB Kevin Gross commits to M as a preferred walk on. He says that going to a school with high academic standards was key for him and he wasn't sure if he would get an offer that made sense. Apparently Harbaugh assured him that preferred walk on status would not affect his opportunity to play if he proves he is the best option.
This was interesting and begs the question, how important is IQ or basic intelligence to sports and particularly football? What do they mean when they say someone has a high football IQ really? Does this correlate to football success or not?
We seem to be attempting to build a pipeline to Paramus Catholic. Per twitter, Michigan has offered 2016 WR Donald Stewart and 2017 LB Drew Singleton.
Donald Stewart is a 3* WR with offers from BC, Syracuse, and about half of the B1G. Michigan is the biggest offer.
Drew Singleton is a 4* OLB with early offers from Rutgers and Michigan, as well as interest from Miami (YTM), Nebraska, and UNC.
You may remember Paramus as the school that we snagged Jabrill Peppers and Juwan Bushell-Beatty from. We are obviously in on Rashan Gary, another top, top recruit. We also have an offer in to 2017 4* DT Corey Bolds. What you may not know is that a 3* DT named Kwanii Figueroa committed to EMU this year, so that saturates the AA area with even more New Jersey transplants.
Paramus puts out 3-4 3* or higher guys on a pretty consistent basis, so even though we've talked about it on this blog before, it bears repeating that establishing a pipeline to this school would be a huge win for recruiting.
