Football Display Case
just what the Pistons need: a third string center. Joe Dumars was replaced by a mean ol' alien a few years back you guys.
this would be a close approximation of hypothetical graduation speech
no you guys they're just super pumped about COLLLLLLLLLLLLEGE
not a surprise
premature congrats. One thing we can be sure of: he'll take fewer asinine penalties than Abdelkader
Thanks to ugly transitions between Fulmer/Kiffin/Dooley/Davis, Tennessee is on the edge of APR penalties for football.
i approve of this message
strong indictment of AAU right heah
Glockner sides with justice
a good cause, and a good time
good job gents
"Jeff Withey shouldn't have called him Peter Dinklage, is all I'm saying."
this would be bad if it wasn't LIES
Drew Henson's career, or not quite career, or whatever.
“I’m more of a back-to-the-basket type of big man that rebounds a lot,” Swanigan said on Wednesday, describing his game. “I have a Zach Randolph type of game — that’s who I base my game off of. Being physical and playing with both hands on the rim.”
But, seems unquestionable that a visit puts us in a better position than no visit. I know the board is down on the numbers of top kids that we lose out on, but have a little perspective. Everyone wants four- and five-star kids. Hoke & Co. have definitely landed a very nice share of the four-star crowd since arriving in Ann Arbor; only way to start hitting that mark for five-stars is to have more irons in the fire. Welcome to the fire, young man. We hope you join the greatest program in the country.
I'm not getting my hopes up. I think he'll stay in SEC country, but everything I've heard about him is that he is a force to be reckoned with at linebacker. He's already got the size and physicality to play, and perhaps start right away at almost any school.
Brady Hoke: Kicking Ass And Signing Names On The Recruiting Trail
Wanting and doing are two comepletely different things
If you see someone in an airport with Michigan logos on luggage and they are wearing a pilot uniform come say hello.
Here we go, he's got a spot reserved on the bus with Dee Hart, Demar Dorsey, Leon McQuay and anyone else who has been highly touted and still never made it here.
Is that parked next to the bus with Ryan Mallett, Sam McGuffie, Chad Henne, William Campbell, and Shane Morris?
For today, goodbye. For tomorrow, good luck. And forever, Go Blue.
dont mention henne and morris with the rest the others are busts
Mallet turned out to be pretty damn good, but at Arkansas. Casualty of The Process, Carr/Rodriguez edition.
The point is that they were all 5* recruits who made it to campus.
If anything Morris doesn't belong on that bus, the kid hasn't even played a snap at the University of Michigan, let alone production and accuracy concerns that abound him.
Nope. It's parked over by the one with Devin Gardner and Kyle Kalis on it. They're trying to make room for Patrick Kugler, but it's a tight fit with Kalis there.
That bus is in A lot, this one usually parks in C lot
to find Reuben Foster and recruit him for us
All this Reuben talk made me hungry, so I went to the local sandwich shop and picked one up. May be that's why Hoke & Co are interested. They're hungry and they want a Reuben. A giant one at that. They just have to pick him up.
Avatar is a reference to this. Go Blue!
Was he able to come back from injury this year? Didn't he have an ACL boo boo?
I doubt he'll end up here, but damn, I can't help but get excited, the kid is a monster. If we got Foster that would be five 4-star and one 5-star recruits at linebacker the past two years. Not to mention we still have Jake Ryan for two years, god willing. Michigan would be turning into linebacker-u if we nabbed Foster.
Five star recruit....one star attitude. If half of what I've heard about him is true....I'm completely fine with him going elsewhere.
ATTN NBA Dads and Siblings: Have brothers / sons on the hoops come-up?
Michigan = NBA Family U
Are you also the guy that follows TMZ and takes their word as if it were facts in The Wall Street Journal? The kid is in high school...give him a break
I was able to watch the video interview with Foster and Poggi. Foster doesn't seem like the most intelligent person but he seems like a good guy. I don't know what you've heard (probably something to do with pay for play) but he reminds me of Dorsey in the fact that he might want a fresh start somewhere far away. That is yet to be determined but I would welcome a talent like that and have faith that they staff would help mold him into not only a great player but a great man.
Omnia mutantur nos et mutamur in illis.
Fine, maybe that was a bit harsh. I'd be floored if he actually committed though - the gravitational pull of the south is massive, as is having a kid in the region.
Is all of that "good" weight?
Not putting too many eggs in that basket, but what a nice basket that would be.
Bo' Money Bo' Problems
seems like he is too big to have decent pad level
...we did need some beef on the interior.
Is all that "good" weight?
For crying out ducks, it was a joke- "2013 LB" kinda looks like 2013 pounds. Foster is a rock, I wasn't suggesting he was fat. Good grief, does anyone have any sort of sense of humor?
but he is definitely a long shot. It's strange to see a 5* prospect from Alabama that hasn't fallen into the clutches (yet) of either The Tide or Auburn. Pulling players like this out of the deep south is very hard to do. But, a campus visit makes it at least possible.
"You owe it to every man, woman, and child in the State of Michigan to beat the Buckeyes and silence their fans! Now go out there and make it happen!"
- Bo Schembechler (Result: U-M 22 OSU 0)
If I remember correctly, kid was committed to Bama, flipped to Auburn, and now with their issues he's obviously looking elsewhere now.
What a long shot he is for us. Now I understand the hype, but that kid bounces from school to school. If for some divine reason he decides to come here it better be the day before or the day of signing day because if it's sooner that gives him enough time to voice to another school. I hope we get him though, after watching his film he is really fast and can tackle really well.
Bounce to another school*
but a teenager in Foster's position and location coming all the way up north to attend Michigan strikes me about as likely as Brady leaving for an NFL job. Neither are worth spending any time thinking about for Michigan fans at the moment. Teenagers are generally fickle as hell, constantly falling in and out of love with new things, and Michigan is a new thing for Foster. If he actually takes a visit that will be an achievement by itself.
Saban would free up a scholarship for him in about 15 seconds.
