"Northwestern fans can be both heartened and disheartened by the loss to Minnesota just like how nineteenth-century resurrectionists were heartened when they pried a heart from a freshly-buried corpse and then disheartened it when they sold it to a disreputable anatomist."
Olaniyan sets UofM official
"I'm still a strong verbal to Duke."
Kevin Newsome, among others. I say break out the snake oil.
Always a good thing, no matter how committed the player is to another team.
Thought this was CJ. I didn't know we were still recruiting the linebacker position.
Awesome. Good news.
I don't know that Aramide Olaniyan is a Deathbacker. I'd probably put him at ILB. But if they do indeed want him as a Quick and he committed, I think we would conveniently stop contacting Paskorz.
Why wouldn't we have done that with Onwukaife, then?
IME (and perhaps mine alone), Onwukaife looked better than Paskorz. Kinard as well for that matter.
Aramide Olaniyan is significantly better than either Onwukaife or Paskorz.
right about that. He would be a great fit in Gerg's defense. He is a smart, heady player that has a lot of speed for a LB. I really hope we keep pursuing him.
they shuffle Paskorz down to Van Bergen's position than dropping him. There is still need for that position.
The Spartans just picked up 4* safety recruit Isaiah Lewis if anyone cares.
so, with all due respect, I guess i dont care.
He is a 4 star, but he was deciding between MSU and Kentucky. He didn't really have any big offers.
He's from Indiana. We shouldn't be hearing any bragging from the MSU faithful since he's not from the state of Michigan.
He also had offers from Minnesota, Purdue, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, and Iowa.
We only care about players that play for Michigan.
Olaniyan looks great on film. Very athletic and lots of upside.
He looks like a psycho...and I like it
Yeah, this is one reason why I'd put him at MIKE or WILL rather than Quick.
Just wondering...Are you a coach or something? You provide some really good info for this site.
Oh God, now you're just giving him a big head.
I've had a big head for a while. That's why I stopped wearing fitted hats. Now I just wear a sombrero, because the chinstrap holds it on.
Thanks for the compliment.
Yes, I am a coach. This will be my fourth year coaching high school. Gsimmons (and a few others) knows a hell of a lot more than me, but he doesn't comment as frequently as most of us wish. Hopefully he'll be around more once there's more football content to discuss and less of this drama/recruiting stuff that probably bores him.
How does one increase the size of their frame?
Just ask Mark McGwire.
Or my ex-girlfriend during her freshman year of college.
