...says Denzel Valentine of Big Ten Tourney favorite MSU, which is 5-7 in its last 12 games. Cumong, man.
If you weren't aware, there were tweets and stories going around that Kentucky QB Zeke Pike was ejected from the 7 on 7 tournament for apparently throwing the football at the ref. That of course sparked conversations and controversy over what happened and why he did it. I thought I would give you Zeke's take on what happened.
It was really blown all out of proportion. They give you a play clock and it was 4th down, our team didn't get set and get the play off in time. They blew the play dead and called turnover on downs. I tossed the ball towards the ref who blew his whistle just giving him the ball. He cought the ball and then the other ref threw his flag and threw me out. It was pretty ridiculous but I just took it, not much I could do. I mean it wasn't worth arguing over, and then we have people tweeting and saying all this nonsense making me look bad.
It seems strange that no one else has gotten Zeke's take on this incident, but there you go. He also told me that he will be back up to Michigan quite a few times after spring recruiting, and reiterated that they will be in the top group.
So. eyes on the ground reports from Saturday have multiple people telling me the best QB Michigan has is Devin Gardner. This includes local coaches down here who went and could not wait to see Denard play, but instead left thinking MIchigan would be crazy not to start Devin. But, he went up against the second string all day and, well, I will go out on a limb and say MICH might have the worst second string D in the conference. Grain meet Salt
But, I'm never opposed to oddsmaking or gambling, therefore
Over/Under on Devin Gardner starts at QB in the 2011 season
O/U 1.5 starts
For those of us who were unable to attend, how was the clinic? Give us some info...Hoke, Mattison, Fred Jackson hyperbole, etc.
Didn't see this previously posted and it's worth a look. Haven't seen him get this emotional before.
My twitter account has been blowing up about Zeke Pike getting thrown out of a 7 on 7 tourney for throwing a ball at an official. I first saw it on Bruce Feldman's twitter page. This is not good coming from a highly touted recruit. I dont know the whole extent of the story, so Im not going to divulge into at all, but I hope this is not a sign of things to come. Again, I do not want to speculate about an 18 year old kid who I do not know anything about except that he is one of the nation's top high school qbs. Just thought Id inform you guys and see what you think about this whole situation.
Article basically states just prior to the interview he knew he would stay in Mizzou
Understands the significane of Mich vs Ohio State as an Ohio kid. nothing earth shattering but just another layer to the process. I'd be interested in other articles that sort of peels the layers off the process.
