to play football, not to play trumpet
Title pretty much says it all. Jeff Stoutland, former MSU and Miami assistant (now at Alabama) is accused of bringing recruits to Shapiro's house for a recruiting pitch. Seems like it may be a small role in the grand scheme of things, but still possibly releveant. Truthfully, I went to Miami for undergrad and am just grasping at straws to find anything that's not awful news right now. Yes, a former assistant from my school who participated in recruiting violations being a former assistant from one of my team's rivals is the best I can do for "not awful news" for me.
Somebody get me that cat saying "Hold me TomVH".
So our basketball program has been screwed for 10 plus years because of Martin and the players that took extra benefits. Also, if Pryor went to OSU over Michigan because of the money, that is a huge swing in the rivalry. As much as I, and probably most here, find Pryor to be an athetic idiot, he would have definitely got RR off to a better start. That said, is there some reason OSU doesn't seem to be receiving the same treatment from the NCAA regarding Sarniak as we did with Martin?
Corwin has been acting irrationally for awhile, and they seem to believe he was/is suffering from symptoms similiar to Dave Duerson. And hasn't disclosed it for his and his former teams reputation. It's convenient timing, but it would explain a lot of his recent career arc. Best wishes and hope he gets the mental and physical help he needs, and that this was the rock bottom, and maybe it was caught before it gets to Duerson's level of tragedy.
Day 17, #17, 17-foot-tall Doug Karsch -- this video has it all.
Given what we've seen from OSU, and also with today's news about The "U", college football fans are faced with a major question; Should the death penalty ever be used in college football? Given the complete devastation that it caused for SMU, will it ever be used again?
I got to thinkin about this for a little while during my run this afternoon: Who will be named the captains?
Coach Hoke said that the players will vote--whether that gives more or less variability to who we think would be the captains, who knows? But, to me, I doubt that there will be any surprises, here.
Lock: Mike Martin
No surprise: Denard (unless Hoke wants only seniors), Molk, Woolfolk,
Slight surprise: Kovacs, Koger, RVB
I can't see anyone outside of those 7 get the C. I'll predict Martin, Denard and Molk. It will be nice to have more than 1 captain who actually starts, unlike last year.
*I know that last year they had 2, but I generally remember M having 3. I'm curious as to which has been more of the norm?
