help i've been transported back in time to Jim Tressel's hiring help
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.
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.
