Ferentz has put guys on both sides of the line in the league so he deserves the benefit of the doubt. However, these are some interesting moves. First, he moved his OL coach, Reese Morgan, to DL to replace Kaczenski who went to Nebraska. Seemed odd, but he then hired his son to be the new OL coach so I guess he wanted to keep Morgan on the staff since he must be a trusted guy. Now he just moved his TE coach, Eric Johnson, to assistant DL coach. This means there are two DL coaches, both of them previously coaching the OL. Johnson at one point coached LBs so mabye that was the thinking. Interested to see how this works out, hopefully not well.
As an extra bonus bit of info since all Iowa RBs are cursed, their starter Canzeri went down with a knee injury in a non-contact drill. MRI results to be released. That is one position on a particular team with a very short shelf life.
By the beard of Phil Knight!
Pants are in the link, tops posted below for your viewing ... something.
Seriously though, this is hideous, even worse than the bumblebees we sported against sparty. All i have to ask the folks in Austin is, other than money, why? Just why? And since these are practice unis, they aren't even going to sell extensively (unless Terrelle Pryor gets his hands on a batch). Why not make something simple, iconic, and dignified, you know, like their normal unis?
MAC football schedule was released today. For those who didn’t know, the MAC was supposed to be a 14 team league with Massachusetts joining the East Division and Bowling Green moving to the West Division. With Temple’s decision to move to the Big East, Bowling Green moves back to the East Division – back 7 teams in the East and 6 in the West.
The MAC schedule can be found here.
The Big East football schedule was released Tuesday. The schedule for all Big East teams can be found here. Temple may elect to play an 11 game schedule, or they may add a game (likely an FCS opponent) to get to 12.
That should complete all the schedule releases for FBS teams in 2012.
"Will": A One-Down Play (w/ apologies to "Airplane!")
QUARTER 1, DOWN 1
ANNOUNCER: Welcome to the game, folks. The Michigan defense starts their work at the 22. Looks like the offense is in an unusual formation, trips plus tight end all on one side of the field. Split end goes into motion. . . to the strong side! Five guys on one side? I don't know if they're trying to confuse Mattison, but they're sure confusing me!
JORDAN KOVACS: Coverage Blue-18. . . Wait, it's not trips, guys! It's quints!
QUINTON WASHINGTON: Huh?
KENNY DEMENS: Denny, Will covers the slot, not the wideout!
WILL CAMPBELL: What?
DESMOND MORGAN: I'm on him! Coverage, Black-32!
JIBREEL BLACK: What?
JORDAN KOVACS: They can't all be on the line. They're forming a second row!
CRAIG ROH: Huh?
JAKE RYAN: Split your zone with Denny, Kenny!
KENNY DEMENS: Will do!
WILL CAMPBELL: What?
JAKE RYAN: Jordan, JT will cover the flanker, but can he stay with him?
WILL CAMPBELL: What?
KENNY DEMENS: Huh?
JORDAN KOVACS: Who?
Wishes he tweeted message to all student athletes.
Lets all laugh at Sparty some more.
I would like to make a sincere apology to the MGoBlog community. When I started my "A Few Interesting Recruiting Notes", my aim was just to update you guys on the comings and goings of recruits around the country. I'd also post what my friends were hearing about the Michigan recruits, because I thought you'd like to hear it. I had no idea, however, that it would turn into something as far reraching as it has become. These threads are being referenced on 247/Scout/ and even on the Bama and SEC boards. While I stand by EVERYTHING I've written, I'm bound to be wrong about something, because my friends can be wrong. I'm not very thick skinned truth be told, and I really don't want the backlash that will result from it.
I do this for fun, and I want it to continue being fun for me. With that being said, I'm no longer going to be doing these recruiting updates. I love this board, and I enjoy being a member of the community, so I will remain and be happy to share my thoughts on all things Alabama.
