a terrible blight on our fine country
Interesting article on the Tressel situation. Lays it out. IMO, the best thing Tressel could do for OSU football is to resign right now.
He clearly isn't going to do that, and it is to our advantage that he doesn't.
Hopefully we will hear more from Sam when he gets back but it looks like there is quite a roadtrip going on at the moment to see where all the Ohio talent is leaning.
I was very much intrigued by the reportage of McGowan's camp performances. This guy is built for punishment. I'm hoping he gets an offer soon. I'm sure it's not for lack of exposure as he is teammates with Odenigbo. I'd like to see film if anyone has any links - I haven't seen much for him. He did camp at ND and was not immediately offered. MSU did offer though...
Anyway this link just went up...thought I'd pass it on with some anticipation of recruiting roundups to come...
Reading through college insider on ESPN, the writer basically ripped Tom's Zeke Pike interview for their own information! Sorry if posted already, I read just about every post while bored at work and didn't see this anywhere...If I missed it, I'm just a tard and delete.
• Touted Class of 2012 quarterback recruit Zeke Pike talked about the Michigan Wolverines with MGoBlog after his visit to Ann Arbor. He had two interesting things to say:
1. "We talked to Coach Hoke for about an hour. We talked about a little of everything. They told me I was the number one guy on their chart and that intrigued me. Then we went on a tour of the Big House, which was pretty awesome. Playing in front of 120,000 people every week is amazing."
2. "I think right now they're trying to use the spread offense because of the quarterbacks they have. They're trying to gradually get to the pro style offense. Those are spread quarterbacks so it makes the position a lot more intriguing and the school a lot more intriguing because they need that true pro style quarterback."
Pike also said that he is "really close friends" with Chris Barnett, who signed with Michigan in the 2011 class.
I know I'm not supposed to post Premium content, but it's not really premium since they took out of Tom's Diary! I'm hearing more and more media outlets(paper, local radio hosts, ESPN, etc) reading this site for their UM information...We're big time boys!
GO BLUE....F osu
Oh what the hell, short article so here it is:
Former Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez is a member of the "Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel" panel that will discuss the NCAA during an hour-long show Wednesday night at 10 p.m. on HBO.
Rodriguez will appear with college basketball commentator Billy Packer, journalist Jason Whitlock of Fox Sports and former Ivy League commissioner Jeff Orleans.
According to a release from HBO, the panel was asked if the current system of amateur athletics is fair considering the programs generate huge revenues.
"Those young folks are being offered opportunities to be able to help them for their next job," Rodriguez said. "As coaches, recruiters and universities, they need to make sure that this is what you're going to school for."
Also during the show, Rodriguez said he believes the NCAA is understaffed.
"And I also think it may be a little misguided," he said. "I think sometimes, instead of going after the bank robbers, we're going after the parking violators."
