‘Give ’em the works, Cubby! We ain’t got a minute to lose! This ain’t a newspaper story — it’s a career! Why, they’ll be naming streets after you!’
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.
Ty Isaac will visit USC this weekend ($) http://mbd.scout.com/mb.aspx?s=162&f=1088&t=8962944
This week's scouting report is on Ty Isaac, the Illinois running back that so many Michigan fans desperately seem to want. I think some of the criticisms of his running style have been overblown, although he does still have some holes in his game. Overall, I like him a little bit more now that I've really sat down and watched him.
In the next week - we have both DeVeon Smith and Derrick Green visiting us. With Ty Isaac delaying his announcement, it seems we may have to choose between Smith and Green.
Personally I like Green better because of his vision and power running ability. How do we stand with him and is a commit imminent from Green (as we are speculating in Smith's case?)
Hey guys, there are like no topics about Michigan on the front page of the board right now, and I know most are interested in Ty Isaac, so I thought I'd share the quick update I had with him this weekend. Enjoy: Ty Isaac
Ty Isaac's much anticipated Junior year highlights are finally out... and they are quite exciting. Needless to say, getting this kid would be huge.
