this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
Sideline reporter and 97.1 personality Doug Karsch said on air today that he's hearing Vance Bedford as the likely new DC. Karsch stayed pretty level-headed through the coaching search... Any other buzz out there on Bedford?
Just another Tommy Touchdown hater. Best QB in the game.
Question for TomVH: The Continuation of RR's Preferred Walkon Program / Interest in Walk-On Players?
Just a quick question for TomVH and others that might know -
Rich Rodriguez established a preferred walk-on program at Michigan which had a number of players added to UM's roster over the last few years. I'm a firm believer that walk-ons can be very good contributors, as they have been at places like Nebraska, Stanford, and other schools.
Do we know whether this "preferred walk-on" program might continue under Hoke?
There are a few players that were/are coming to Michigan with that understanding, such as Traverse City fullback Joey Kerridge. Keeping a No. 16 ranked fullback coming to Michigan would be a good thing, I would think, given Borges'/Hoke's love affair with battering ram ISO plays not to mention an extra blockeror safety valve receiver on play action passes, etc. (Hello waggle pass to FB in the flat!...and touchdown!! Where have you been?)
I'm hoping this walkon program or a derivative thereof can continue at Michigan, especially if Hoke wants to sink the roots in deeper with H.S. coaches and players in the state of Michigan.
Wow, never thought I see those words come out of anyone's mouth with a straight face. That's Frank Clark, TE from Glenville, talking about his visit on the 21st today in an espn insider article.
I hope this is a good sign going forward for us having a shot at future Glenville prospects.
Isn't the dead period over? If it is, how come no one is tracking Hoke's plane yet? I want to hear about flights to North Carolina, flights to Florida, car rides to Zettels house. We've heard stories of the Hoke;s recruiting prowess from Sam and others. Time to show us, with a big flip or 2.
Rumor mill should be back on full blast.
