"(I) think about 'The Lion King,' Simba gets hit over the head and (he's told) 'the past can hurt,' " Harbaugh said Monday afternoon. "'You can either run from it or embrace it and learn from it.'
Note: Title changed from "TomVH, Does LB Curtis Grant has Michigan as his leader?" due to grammer police intervention.
This is from the Bleacher Report so take it for what it is worth.
“I have had a chance to speak with [Michigan] coaches Robinson and Braithwaite. I like both coaches, they are good guys. Michigan is losing their middle linebacker so I am keeping an eye on that," Grant said.
Is anybody else a little surprised we didn't hear anything from D Hart today? I thought the rumors were that he was going to make an announcement after his playoff game today. Correct me if I am wrong but I have found nothing today about it. Please advise, many thanks.
FYI Dr. Phillips won 38-28 today so congrats to them.
Ohio State lands top junior offensive lineman Jacoby Boren
A new commit for the Wolverines means this hits the front page. Action since last rankings:
11-21-10 Notre Dame loses commitment from Justice Hayes.
11-22-10 Michigan gains commitment from Justice Hayes.
11-23-10 Northwestern loses commitment from Sean Cotton.
11-24-10 Iowa loses commitment from Melvin Gordon.
11-25-10 Purdue gains commitment from Doug Gentry.
11-27-10 Penn State gains commitment from Matt Zanellato.
Rivals and Scout have updated their rankings over the past couple weeks, so there are some shakeups in there.
|Big Ten+ Recruiting Class Rankings|
|Rank||School||# Commits||Rivals Avg||Scout Avg||ESPN Avg|
Rivals rankings are on the "RR" scale, which is on a scale from about 5 to about 6.1. Unrated prospects are given a 5.1 rating, on par with the worst of any Big Ten commit last year. Scout is on the 5-star system (unranked players earn star), and ESPN uses grades out of 100 (unranked is 40 or 45). Full data after the jump.
Note: This post isn't about the validity of recruiting rankings, I would appreciate if you would NOT opine about the subject on this thread.
Still no Michigan in the top 25 even after adding two ESPN 150 recruits since the last ranking (Hart, Crawford).
A lot of this can be explained by quantitiy, but if you look at the average rankings we're actually higher than everyone until you get to Auburn at #14. I'm cherry picking a few schools to highlight where I think we'll end up ranked:
|School||Ranking||# Recruits||Avg Rank||# 150||# 4 Star|
Given our current trajectory, I would put us at #15 by the end of the year as a worst case. If our best case four star bonanza ensues, we could easily move into the top 10.
Honestly, there's no reason we shouldn't be above Oregon right now if you go by ESPN's own numbers...
I wonder what the status of his recruitment is at this point. He seemed very interested in coming for an official. It would be great to see him come up for Big Chill weekend.
Behind a dynamic performance by cornerback Byron Moore Jr. and the heroics of backup quarterback Ryan Dayton, Harbor College made history Saturday night at home.
No one was more important to the title-clinching victory than Moore, the former Narbonne star who transferred from USC to play this season at Harbor. He had two interceptions, returning one 30 yards for the game's first TD, recovered a fumble, and held highly regarded receiver Chris Gant without a catch.
"They said if I could hold Gant in check, the rest of the defense would take care of business, so that's what I did."
"Byron really made a difference for us tonight," Peabody said. "We game-planned with him on Gant and everyone played so well on defense. He's a special player, like John White. I look forward to watching him on TV for years to come."
