At press time, Harbaugh had sent Michigan’s athletic department an envelope containing a heavily annotated seating chart, a list of the 63,000 seat views he had found unsatisfactory, and a glowing 70-page report on section 25, row 12, seat 9, which he claimed is “exactly what the great sport of football is all about.”
Apparently there is some speculation around Fox Sports that even if there is a supplemental NFL draft, our buddy TP might not meet requirements.
“If there are no players eligible for a supplemental draft, there is no supplemental draft,” NFL spokesman Greg Aiello wrote in an email to FOXSports.com on Sunday. “It is for players whose circumstances have changed in an unforeseen way after the regular (college) draft. It is not a mechanism for simply bypassing the regular (draft).”
Aiello cited examples of “unforeseen” changes as players who were kicked off their college teams, declared academically ineligible or graduated and then decided to leave school. Pryor doesn’t qualify on any of those fronts.
These situations are decided on a case by case basis, and I personally have trouble believing that he would be denied, but I hope he didn't already throw away the phone number for the Seskatchewan Roughriders.
A good (and concise) read on Shane Morris and his performance at the Gridiron Kings: http://247sports.com/Article/Gridiron-Kings-Coaches-breakdown-32488 ..
First one is how Hoke is being so successful. Second one is one of those "best player/sleeper/etc" category things BT the scouts that you usually get at the end of the season, so kinda fun. And the last is basically who we are targeting, which is probably not news for anyone around here.
Someone on Twitter brought it to my attention that preferred walk on Graham Glasgow was listed on the Michigan 2011 football guide. If you remember Glasgow "committed" to Ohio State earlier in the year for the 2011 class.
I'm looking into it right now to figure out what happened and if that's accurate. I don't know why it wouldn't be, and he's also not listed on Ohio State's site either. He's a 6'7", 295 lb tackle from Illinois. I'll let you know when I hear more.
**EDIT**: I confirmed that Glasgow did in fact switch from OSU to Michigan around June.
At Gridiron Kings Dwayne Stanford said his Top 5 in order are LSU, Bama, OSU, Miami (YTM) and Cinci.
I guess that means we are no longer in the running for his services.
