Didn't see this posted and I always enjoy reading Paul's stuff at Pre-Snap Read. If you've never read the blog, he counts down teams until the season starts. WMU checks in at 71 and has some good info on who to watch, etc.

*ESPN doesn't rate JUCOs, so Isaac Fruechte is not included in Minnesota's average.
Still recovering from the 6, 7 on 7 games I did today at IMG/John Madden 7 on 7 tourny. Michigan has a team there with Shane as QB. Looks solid, nice arm, crisp passing even hurt some kids hands with his ball speed. They clobbered two local teams (Venice and Southeast), I didn't see what else they did as I was doing other games.
Sunday is the big tourny for the "All Madden" trophy. I was told this game would be live on ESPNU but I looked and don't see it on the schedule.
Also, I was chatting with a bunch of recruiting writers there...FoxSports, 247, scout, rivals and ESPN (they were all hangin in a big group trading war stories...I asked about Hoke and Co. "if the recruiting hype is real"..all said to a man, yes.
Also, that Michigan is poised to have a 5 year run on Ohio recruits, they are already hearing many rumblings in the Ohio area High Schools etc...
If you don't know about IMG...Awesome. Also, Chris Wenkie is one giant dude...6'4" and probably a solid 260 (not fat).
If I see more from Shane or others I will let you know.
OSU offered RB Greg Garmon today. I doubt they want 3 RBs in this class.
I've been going over this a lot and I think I've decoded Tom's message...
I was close yesterday but the board broke right when I thought I had it. Clearly the universe doesn't want me telling you this.
Using the letters: TOMVH TWITTER SAYS BUCKLE UP
HOKE CLUBS VEST WIT A TRUMPYT
I assume he meant trumpet, and I think it's most likely a code name for an OSU recruit... I hope this doesn't mean the world is going to end.
Maybe THE_KNOWLEDGE will help us??
P.S. So what's everybody drinking?
It sounds like Tressel chased away players just like Saban. I guess once you're in "The Brotherhood", you can be asked to leave by the coach.
Jackson, a wide receiver, says he was asked to transfer after last season, two years into his college career.
"They had an oversigning issue," Jackson said. "They had to free up a few scholarships, and coach (Jim) Tressel told me I probably wouldn't play and maybe Ohio State wasn't the place for me."
