no, YOU'RE off topic
Since it appears to be a slow night.
ASAP, structure and recognize the BIG-TEN and MAC conference scheduling relationship (looking at you Delaney)? Match better teams and I think the MAC would get better and better over time. As it stands, some Big Ten teams schedule 2 / year and the rest schedule 1 a year and this seems LUDICRIS. I'd call it the Heartland Challenge and it would be cool if a few of the games each year were at MAC venues (realistically not). I can't see the midwest not embracing this.
In the near future, strike a multi-year deal with a power conference. For example, the Big Ten and Pac-12 could do a double helix Home-and-home (The War of the Roses) over a 4 year period with each team paired off with two other teams from the opposing conference. Seems like a random selection process is best for this one.
1. It further alienates ND from reality.
2. It balances schedule strength within- and between- conferences and make rankings and bowl matchups more logical and less computerized particularly if other conferences make similar deals.
3. This is stuff leaders and legends have for breakfast.
According to Scout and Rivals we have offered Texas QB/ATH Jalen Overstreet (6'3 205).
Looks like a kid who could start out at QB and move positions if QB doesn't work out, which would fit perfect considering we just landed Morris.
Other Offers: Baylor, Missouri, Texas Tech
With the NFL lockout and the IMG workout facility here near Tampa it was an interesting night on Wednesday.
The Gulf Coast Officials Association was asked to assist Southeast High School in Bradenton with their inter squad scrimmage. At the "game" were at least 4 Packers and Aaron Rogers (I didn't see him personally, he left right before I arrived) with some IMG guy. Also present were several Nebraska coaches and a guy sporting Arkansas gear, taking notes and snapping pictures.
This Saturday and on the 27th, most Florida schools in the greater Tampa/Sarasota area have their spring games. I get Venice at Southeast and a Cardinal Mooney game.
I might be peeking from my Back Judge or Umpire position to see if I spot any Michigan gear. Are we recruiting any guys in the Tampa area?
What I found interesting was that he said this to SpartanMag's Paul Day:
Right now I feel kind of more comfortable with the [UM] coaches than I do at State.
Maybe not breaking news, but I think it goes back to what every recruit's been saying about the coaching staff, and the feeling of family in AA. They note that he still considers himself a Spartan fan, but it's clear that the coaches have made a great impression that could (hopefully) translate into a committment. After all, you can be a Spartan fan every other week of the year.
Mike just said "We are like a big Brother to Ohio State. We don't really spend too much time thinking about them. They worry way too much about us." [paraphrasing of course]
Face palm...three major arteries in Hoke's head just exploded and he had to taken to UofM hospital....really ironic considering Mike was speaking at the Mott benefit.
Morgan Trent, Leon Hall and Mike Hart are tearing Sparty a new ******* right now.
The guys are basically taking the line:
"Yeah you beat us the last 2-3 years, but who didn't. Beat us when we have a REAL program now that Brady Hoke is here"
Just saw this pop up on the twitters. We haven't offered Corey but his name has come up recently as he is Jarrod Wilson's teammate at Akron Buchtel and at one time they were a package deal (http://mgoblog.com/diaries/tomvh-interview-jarrod-wilsons-coach-ricky-powers). He just committed to Tennessee and, well, there's not much else going on today.
