a terrible blight on our fine country
This weekend is one of the first big visit weekends for the Michigan coaches. I've confirmed a number of big prospects so far, and as usual this list will continue to change as we get closer to the weekend.
- Visiting Today - Ohio OL Caleb Stacey (6'4", 275 lbs): No offer yet, but hoping to get one soon. ***Michigan offered Caleb on his visit.
- Ohio OL Kyle Dodson (6'6", 315 lbs): Michigan has made a lot of ground up with Dodson. He's very interested in Michigan.
- Mass LB Camren Williams (6'2", 215 lbs): Making his decision in June so this visit will be big for Michigan.
- Mass ATH Armani Reeves (5'11", 185 lbs): Teammate of Camren Williams, very excited about the visit.
- Michigan LB Royce Jenkins-Stone (6'2", 215 lbs): This is good for Michigan to get Royce back on campus. He's seen his recruitment take off offer-wise and Michigan needs to solidify their position.
- Michigan LB James Ross (6'0", 210 lbs): Same deal with Royce, this is great for Michigan to get James back up on campus.
- Michigan DB Terry Richardson (5'9", 160 lbs): Michigan has a lot of work to do with Terry so any type of visit is a good one.
- Michigan OL/DL Kelby Latta (6'4", 295 lbs): Michigan's new coaches have sparked some serious interest from Latta. Before the hire he was very high on Wisconsin, but the new coaches are giving Michigan a chance.
- Ohio DE Pharaoh Brown (6'6", 260 lbs): It will be good to get Brown on campus this early. There's limited spots in Ohio State's class for defensive ends and Brown could end up being a key prospect down the road.
- Michigan OL Ben Braden (6'7", 285 lbs): I reported earlier in the week that Braden had made a trip up to Michigan this past Sunday, and he was offered on that trip. Braden may be coming up this weekend, or it could be next weekend as well.
- Illinois DT Vontrell Williams (6'2", 265 lbs): No offer yet, but hoping to get one.
- Ohio TE AJ Williams (6'6", 260 lbs): Williams has tried to schedule a visit for the past two weekends, but it looks like the 26th will end up the date he'll make it in.
While reading this (WARNING: Freep) article I noticed in one of the photos (#11 of 13, in case anyone wants to take a look) that Sparty claims six (!) national championships in football:
Indeed, the Wikipedia page on the program says the same thing:
Of note, I see "AP" in there only once. Is that why Sparty doesn't brag about those? Or, do they just not know their history?
Not sure the obsession with the media and Strength and Conditioning coaches, but there was an interesting article in today's paper on our new one I haven't seen posted yet. Let the hype begin.
Mattison's story is kind of funny.
And don't forget, again, for those missing the wolves, I have it on good authority that Wellman has pet Velociraptors....
It appears S. Garcia broke curfew before the bowl game and Spurrier let him play in the game and then suspended him from the 1st week of spring practice. Wow they sure are strict down there, not spring practice!!!! We don't know all the particulars or if there was a story behind it, but Ohio St supports their decision.
Not exactly the way Bo handled things.
Regardless of your feelings for RR I still give him huge props for sitting Hagerup in the OSU game. His job was on the line and he sat his only punter. Contrast that to Spurrier who had just completed his best season at SC and pretty much call his shot at SC and was playing in a pretty meaningless bowl game and still looked the other way.
As we say on the boards..very telling.
Congrats to Stefon, and I really hope Blake Countess and Coach Hoke can somehow get this kid to AA. I know he seems to be looking to the southern states right now, but let's get him on campus and see what happens.
