i would find this more credible if it was about Tom Crean
I forget how this one ends, but I might put my money on Washington State--that Ryan Leaf looks talented.
Started at 3:30 eastern, runs until 5:30.
SIAP....While it has been well established that Hoke poops gold, I was wondering if anyone has done an analysis of Hoke's gameday coaching? I'd love to see a story on his strengths and weaknesses from his time as HC at Ball State and SDSU. Maybe someone with more time on their hands could do a diary on issues such as:
- clock management
- half time adjustments
- 4th down tendencies
- how does he feel about punting from, say, the opponent's 35 yard line?
- Game planning (predictable?)
I recall stories about schemes he has run, but that is not what I'm interested in. I want to know what to expect from him on gameday.
For those of you who watched the games on ESPN3 in the US - do you have to live outside of the broadcast footprint (aka, being outside the midwest/west-coast) to watch the game.
If you lived in Michigan, could you watch the games as well?
Did they do ABC games, or just ESPN games?
I shot this at the Fan Day today...it was pretty much the highlight of the trip (thus back and on so soon) since I don't really get into autographs, and the free stuff was gone in like 15 minutes. (And no one is working the lines to make it easy to get around the Stadium). But there's still a little outline for the edges, and the full screen shot still looks big...and pretty.
Any fuzz is due to my camera, not the screens. They were super clear.
Another big commit for Michigan, and we're back on the front page. A couple services should be revamping their rankings in the coming weeks, so keep an eye out for that as well. Action since last rankings:
8-7-1 Illinois gains commitment from Taylor Barton.
8-8-11 Michigan gains commitment from Ondre Pipkins. Indiana gains commitment from Shawn Heffern. Michigan State gains commitment from Kodi Kieler.
8-9-11 Indiana gains commitment from Sebastian Smith. Ohio State gains commitment from Roger Lewis. Minnesota "gains" commitment from Nick Rallis.
8-10-11 Nebraska gains commitment from Deion Jones. Penn State gains commitments from Eugene Lewis and Tommy Schutt.
8-12-11 Penn State gains commitment from Armani Reeves. Wisconsin gains commitment from Walker Williams.

*ESPN doesn't rate JUCOs, so Isaac Fruechte is not included in Minnesota's average, Darius Stroud doesn't count against Indiana's average, and Steffon Martin is excluded from Purdue's.
