that makes one of us
I have a good friend at the Michigan Assosciation of Broadcasters event at Mackinac tonight and she is sitting at Jim Brandstatter's table.
Obviously, I had her ask him if he thought Isaac would be getting his waiver for this year. He said, "I don't think it would hurt if he didn't play. They are lined with running backs."
Take it as is or read between the lines like I do, but I'd guess one of two options: 1) Isaac won't be getting his waiver, so he's tempering the news by praising the current crob of RBs. 2) Our current RBs are just that good – Isaac being on the field won't matter much at this point.
Could be a combination of both. Just figred I'd pass it along.
The title says it all. The university is now saying it's official so we can stop the speculation as to whether there's a possibility if Isaac didn't recieve the waiver to play this year he might not transfer to Michigan. There's still no mention of the waiver so it appears we are still waiting on that, but at least we all know he's a Wolverine either way. Welcome to the good guys Ty!
Here's all I could find for clips featuring Ty Isaac last year. Not a lot but better than nothing.
Vs. Fresno State (bowl game)
IIRC, we were his leader for a bit. Was a 5-star RB; do we take him if we don't get Damien Harris? (He played sparingly last year in his freshman campaign -- I'd imagine he would have to sit out a year unless he gets a waiver. 40 carries for a 5.9 YPC average and 2 touchdowns as a 3rd/4th string backup last year.)
#USC tailback Ty Isaac confirmed that he's been released from his scholarship and will to transfer closer to home. Story coming.— Chris Swanson (@ChrisPSwanson) May 14, 2014
Plucked up the courage enough to take a stab at my first post.
ESPN shot a quick video of the craziest offers coaches and fans have made to potential recruits. From Ty Isaac being offered a car, to a child asking a Florida recruit to commit, and not surprisingly a recruit being accompanied by identical twins all night.
Here is the link: http://espn.go.com/video/clip?id=8867174
Interesting to note the schools & conferences many of these kids are into as they heard these offers.
I will try to embed in the comments, but I am assuming I will need help.
Thanks for reading. Hope my first post wasn't a bore! Open to suggestions.
EDIT: Well, mods, feel free to take this down. Looks like ESPN has since removed the video. So much for a first impression on my part.
EDIT EDIT: Whirlwind of a first post, but turns out MgoUser TRUBLUMICH has saved the day! I'll upvote him all day.
