The nutty Michigan coverage isn't so much about Harbaugh as it is a signal to the Big Ten that Fox wants to party.
The Notre Dame boards on scout and 247 are a buzz that Garnett is down to Stanford and Notre Dame. Which would seem to go along with the tweet below. Most of my Notre Dame friends say his visit to Notre Dame blew him away. If true, a tough break for the good guys.
Edit: Since the people saying this are just regular posters and not insiders, I didn't feel a conflict of interest in posting this. Then this tweet from Steve, seemed to confirm the rumors.
Be sure to comment to say Michigan is the better team. Keep it classy of course.
“Urban and the staff were recruiting me hard for a while but I have recently told them to back off some because I am firm with my commitment to Michigan,” Kalis said. “This trip just made me want to be at Michigan even sooner. I really got know some of my future teammates and my host Jack Miller showed me a great time.”
This should end any question about his commitment to Michigan. This kid is true blue, and will probably be the best guard at Michigan since Hutch. I get the feeling that he's starting to feed off the hatred that the Ohio fans give him, which is scary. I wouldn't want to give him any more motivation, because he's already a kid that can dominate in the trenches.
Channeling his best Bobby Petrino, Todd Graham notified his players at Pitt that he was leaving, by text message. You stay classy, Todd Graham.
Here's Frank asking Hokie fans for support . . .
Admittedly, I don’t usually care for Michael Rothstein’s writing, but he throws out the opportunity that Fitz could be a Heisman candidate as early as next year, which I like. Fitz ran for 1000+ yards in basically 10 games so far. DNP against ND and only two carries against MSU. He is obviously the feature back and it looks like he could consistently see 20-25 carries per game next year. If he averages, say 22.5 carries per game at this year’s YPC (5.8), he would end up with 1696 yards (13 games).
I have never thought of Fitz being THAT good, but he was seriously impressive from Purdue through the end of season. Here are some recent Heisman contender/winner RB stats:
2011 T Richardson: 1583 yards/20 TD/6.0 YPC
2011 M Ball: 1759 yards/32 TD/ 6.4 YPC
2010 L James: 1731 yards/21 TD/5.9 YPC
2009 M Ingram: 1658 yards/17 TD/6.1 YPC
2009 T Gerhart: 1871 yards/27 TD/5.5 YDC
My first thought was that it might be more realistic for Fitz’s senior year when Denard isn’t there to take away carries and yards. But, DRob may be part of the reason Fitz is cashing in. Regardless, we currently have a potential GREAT back at Michigan.
