this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
Standard Thursday night open thread.
Thus far NC State was moving down the field, but the NC State recievers are opting to not catch the ball.
I've been wondering this and am doing this piece for a project I'm working on. What was, in your opinon, Michigan's greatest game (win) of the 1990s?
It's been picking at me all day. Virginia in 1995 was an exciting finish and a great comeback, But I still can't say it was better than 1995 or 1997 against ohio.
Your opinions on the greatest game of the 90s greatly appreciated.
I am really looking for a 32 Jersey (youth medium,) i.e., Jordan Kovacs. This happens to be for my son, who wears 32 for his team (although he is playing DT.) Kovacs is an inspiration. Even though he isn't the biggest, strongest, or fastest guy, he always plays hard and plays smart. He wraps up the guys he tackles, and takes the right angles. I'd like to surprise my son with the jersey, ideally before or on the day of the Northwestern game (which will be his first game.)
Someone had a post about this on here recently, but I can't find it. I searched for "Kovacs Jersey," but it brings up a post from 2010, with no links to any jerseys. If any of you have one to sell, or know where I can find one to buy, I'd be most appreciative.
Good read from Sam Webb regarding the 2013 TX O-Lineman.
Michigan offered him last week and it would be great to see him blocking for Morris in the future. Impressive offer list that includes Alabama, Auburn, Oklahoma, and Notre Dame.
Interesting that he's a little undersized at 6'5, 250 but he's definitely a gamer:
I go 100 percent all the time," he said. "What the coaches love about me is my motor and just going 100 percent. Wherever I'm at, whether it's backside or play-side, I'll finish the play. I'll try to get a second or third block and try to spring the play open. I'm going to try my hardest on every play because I want to win. That's the main thing about me — it is just me going all out every play, no matter what."
Makes sense since the kid has some upside and they might as well get his growing pains out of the way.
EDIT: This post is not OT see posting rule "Anything related to other Big Ten teams or upcoming opponents"
I figured someone would have posted this already, but today is Denard's 21st birthday. I hope he celebrates by putting a complete game together on Saturday.
On a side note, anyone do anything especially memorable on their 21st?
