fair point that
A nice comparison (free article) of the 2008 and 2011 defenses over at Rivals by Michael Spath.
I believe the 2011 defense will be much better.
Hoke and Mattison have these guys excited to play and Mattison seems like the type of coach that will get maximum effort out of his players. Spath makes reference in the article to some guys (Trent) not buying into the RichRod regime back in 2008.
Janoris Jenkins accepts offer from Terry Bowden to play for the North Alabama Lions. I feel kind of bad for the kid, but you got to live with the consequences of your actions. Either he gets 10 INTs or 0 because no one will probably throw to him and I'm guessing the CB on the opposite side of the field is about 2 orders of magnitude lower in talent than the possible 1st rnd draft pick...
*EDIT* you know once I saw they were the Lions the misleading headline was necessary, lol. It's the offseason, we need a little spice to the MGoBoard
Seeing as how there seems to be some optimism that there will be NFL football played this season, I figured this story would excite people. I know you can't believe everything you hear or read but I think we have a good shot of landing him, and with houston looking around I think the lions will make a stronger push than any other team. We'll see if he chooses us. If we can keep houston and get nnamdi the nly thing keeping this team from winning it all is th O-line, can they protect stafford and get a decent running game going. its going to be an exciting season
We have been his leader for a long time now. Does anyone have any insight on whether he will commit or not this weekend?
I mentioned on Twitter that this would probably happen, but 2013 Colorado OL Chris Fox was offered today by Michigan after attending camp this week. I spoke with him about the offer, he said he's very excited and loved Michigan.
I'll have the full quotes and everything in the Weekly Update.
As everyone knows former Ohio State commit Kyle Kalis is visiting Michigan this weekend. He told me that he's very excited for the trip, however I wouldn't expect a commitment this weekend from him. He does have a lot of interest in Michigan, but he decided that he also wants to visit Alabama and Miami first. That isn't 100%, but that's the plan going into the visit. I always say that visits can change things, but this is the plan as of now.
Kyle is aware of the situation Michigan is in with the recruiting class and how many spots are left open. If no decision is made this weekend don't be surprised if any of the other linemen Michigan was in good shape with end up pushing their decisions back or going elsewhere. I believe that they would wait for Kalis to make his decision, rather than letting it fill up.
There are guys like Blake Bars and Eric Olson deciding in the near future. Bars is deciding within a week, as I reported in his interview earlier. If the coaches want three more linemen and if Blake Bars were to choose Michigan they could potentially still be fine. That would probably leave spots reserved to wait for Jordan Diamond and Kyle Kalis. If they want to take three more. We'll see how it plays out, but do note that Kalis has a lot of interest in Michigan.
