this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
The article is behind a pay wall, but Steve Wiltfong says that Shaq Thompson would love to hear from Michigan. Which I'm certain the only person more surprised to hear that than Michigan fans, is Brady Hoke. I get irritated when certain recruits say they would love to hear from a particular school, that they really aren't interested in, that they just want to add to their resume. I'm not saying that this is the case in this scenario, but I suspect it is.
Here's a story from Rivals (with video) that talks about Brenner Beyer's switch to LB. This helps explain all the DEs in this class I guess.
What could make a summer of TP's downfall and ttSIO's shame even better? Well, direct involvement in the Yahoo 10/10 Miami (YTM) scandal!!!!!
Headline says it all: "REPORT: NCAA INVESTIGATING PRYOR'S TRIP TO MIAMI"
This won't add sanctions to OSU, and Pryor is already gone. But guilt by association, it's just beautiful.
And it makes me love me some Denard even more!
Title pretty much says it all. Jeff Stoutland, former MSU and Miami assistant (now at Alabama) is accused of bringing recruits to Shapiro's house for a recruiting pitch. Seems like it may be a small role in the grand scheme of things, but still possibly releveant. Truthfully, I went to Miami for undergrad and am just grasping at straws to find anything that's not awful news right now. Yes, a former assistant from my school who participated in recruiting violations being a former assistant from one of my team's rivals is the best I can do for "not awful news" for me.
Somebody get me that cat saying "Hold me TomVH".
So our basketball program has been screwed for 10 plus years because of Martin and the players that took extra benefits. Also, if Pryor went to OSU over Michigan because of the money, that is a huge swing in the rivalry. As much as I, and probably most here, find Pryor to be an athetic idiot, he would have definitely got RR off to a better start. That said, is there some reason OSU doesn't seem to be receiving the same treatment from the NCAA regarding Sarniak as we did with Martin?
