Good luck to any school trying to pull him out of Kansas.
Good luck to any school trying to pull him out of Kansas.
Why is that? Is the allure of playing for either the oldest (Snyder) or fattest (you know who) coach in D1 too much for other schools to overcome?
I did not know Charlie Weiss was coaching a school in Kansas.
But Charlie Weis is.
Edit: I'm retarded. I honestly thought Mark Mangino was still the coach, and was trying to make a joke about Charlie Weis. Then I did a google, and found out that Charlie Weis really is the coach.
I deserve this.
Look on the bright side though. BOTH your answers would've been right to my "you know who" remark:
Mark Mangino: Large, bowling ball shaped Walrus. He should probably have coached in the B16.
Charlie Weis: Ruptured tin of biscuits. Only not tasty after being baked at 375 degrees for 14-17 minutes and smothered in sausage gravy.
He's gotta a FUPA
This is literally the best description of anything I have read anywhere in at least the last month and possibly the last 10 years. Thank you.
I'll never understand how men who are so motivated to advance themselves in one facet of life (career) can be so unmotivated to take care of themselves in another (weight/health). Hit the goddamn gym like your players to whom you pontificate speed, strength and good health you hypocrytical pair of disgusting piles of roly poly goo. /boggle
Were those GIFs??....cause when I scolled down to your post my computer screen started to shake.
Mangino used to have a sideline fan in his office at KU to keep him cool in the summer. I guess the body's normal mechanism (sweating) didn't cut it and he needed further support to regulate his body temp.
.....can you imagine trying to have a conversation with him while that thing was running?

Trying to escape Charlie Weis' gravitational pull is too much for recruits to overcome
K-State does have a campus in Olathe
This is a pretty awesome post. And equally awesome is one of the reply's thinking your serious!
*Take remedial English
What is up with all you grammar Nazi's? You need to stop caring so much about spelling errors and improper use of phrases.
I'm not saying I disagree with you, but your statement is pretty funny considering your sig line.
It does seem a bit hypocritical, doesn't it?
As a frequent reader (and not so frequent poster) - I actually like having the grammar Nazis policing the posts. It makes people double-check their posts and reading through comments is more enjoyable. And its a michigan blog - obviously the standard for commenting should be higher than a board that looks like it was published with tweets.
Its = It's.
I like them also , because I've learned a few things I was doing wrong when writing. It's like a mini refresher English class.
Everyone should think twice about hitting "save" here.
With that said, people need to check their inner asshole at the log in page. Telling the dude to take remedial English because he butchered a couple of words is unnecessary.
I sea what ewe did their.
I'd lay much of the blame associated with the proliferation of horrible grammar on massively multi-player online games, where kids and foreigners learn how to spell from other gaming illiterates in the chat channels.
There are several examples, but to me the most annoying MMPORG inspired mistake is: "definAtely." I played World of Warcraft a while and found "definitely" misspelled that way about 85% of the time. I must be an angry man, but every time I saw "definAtely", I wanted to knock teeth out through my computer screen.
Other annoyance level 10 favorites include:
There are so many tards misspelling "there/their/they're", that they're driving me effing crazy with their constant errors.
The effect of "effect/affect" being reversed, is that it affects me adversely.
When I see tards bungle "you're/your" I want to scream "You're driving me crazy with your horrible illiteracy! Die in a cold fire!"
Wanted to come up with a witty comment but I can't so I will just say I love this coaching staff.
Hope he brings some Oklahoma Joe's. Hoke loves him some barbecue.
It seems strange and awesome to have so many top, top flight players on campus this early. We're already planning to host (or have hosted) the #1, #2, #12 (Hood) and #19 overall prospects who are all out-of-staters plus George Campbell who is probably/maybe the #1 WR in 2015. Very nice
I also recall Steve Lorenz mentioning in a thread last week that Smith has legitimate interest in Michigan. This news only confirms/bolsters that statement.
Hopefully he will be a worthy successor and can block as well as his namesake Vincent Smith who will be graduating this year.
Don't forget Deveon.
More angry road graders? Yes please.
While we're still dealing with the hangover of the RR line recruiting, my God we are hopefully going to have an obscene offensive line for years and years to come.
Good thing he's a 5-star...he'll need that talent to even crack the 2 deep
What position do you think he will play in college?
He could play either tackle or either guard spot. I imagine someone will try to turn him into a LT eventually, but it might take some time to work on his pass blocking skills.
For such a big kid, he shows surprising agility and technique like scraping and pulling (hard to clearly see much else from the distant pressbox).
If he plays T, he and Mason would create a formidable left side.
Those kids are all pretty consistently large for high school.
This wasn't covered on here but yesterday Chantel Jennings tweeted that a big time recruit was going to spend his third consecutive weekend visit in AA. I assume this means Drake Harris? More good news.
Yes, it's Drake Harris.
Do we have a legitimate shot at him? Is he leaning towards anyone? I would really like to have this guy be part of the team.
He doesn't talk much, but Michigan is considered to be in his top group.
Book end Bradens? Ben Braden at one tackle and Braden Smith at the other? Sounds good to me.
According to his Rivals page, he's 6'6'', 275 lbs, so essentially, on track to be a road grader, as people have mentioned. If Michigan is in his top group, to have another section of The Wall on offense in place for the future would not be a bad thing at all.
His current offers, per their site, includes Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Kansas St., Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Ohio St., OKlahoma, South Carolina, Stanford, TCU, Texas, Texas A&M and Virginia.
I don't know guys, it's hard to not say no to the sex appeal of Bill Snyder.
Edit: Replied to the wrong thing, so instead I will say, at what point do you think 5-stars get turned off by having 5-stars in every class before them?
Looking at Alabama, not much at all.
Ask USC. They seem to be doing a good job of continually attracting 5 stars. Maybe it's Lane Kiffin's pleasing personality.
They're also losing them as fast as they come in, if not faster.
Ask Nick Saban.
I think you have to establish a culture where kids know even if they are not "the guy," they will still get playing time through being rotated in. I would guess Hoke is going to attempt to do what he did with the dline and have guys rotate in and out on the oline. Therefore keeping people fresh. We really couldn't afford to do that much last year thanks to depth issues, but in the future, I could see that happen.
It is much less affective to rotate an OL than a DL, I believe. I've never really heard of any teams that have line changes to the front 5. Anyone else want to enlighten me?
Here's some highlights of Braden at the UA Combine in January. Can get a good sense of what the kid looks like. And that sense is that he looks like he's built like a tank.
His reps in pass blocker were not that impressive, but man is he a specimen. That's a solid 275 lbs for a high school junior. I bet in a couple years he will be stonewalling those defensive ends. Good looking prospect.
Lineman generally never look that good in those drills as the advantage is slanted pretty heavily to the defensive lineman.
and his agility, his upside is going to be ridiculous. . .
for those interested:
over the next few years (15, 13 and 18 IF everyone matriculated on schedule), should we expect more kids from outside the Midwest as the coaches can focus on a tight group of studs?
The 2014 class is showing signs of multiple top 100 kids with most outside MI and OH. There are still 10 or so elite in the area every year but that pile is small with ND and OSU fighting for some of those 10.
It "feels" like Hoke is shifting to more national effort now that a local foundation exists.
Braden Smith makes alot of linemen look like chubby dough boys.
Jeebus! This guy coming at you full steam ahead = Cower.
It's good see that the highly rated guys at least seem to find Michigan attractive again. Hope we can pull them in. Speaking of highly rated prospects; is anyone familiar with Clifton Garrett? He's a 4 star linebacker out of Illinois, with offers from all of the big-time programs except Michigan. Does anybody know why Hoke & Company hasn't offered him?
The issue appears to be that Michigan has a plethora of linebackers, and Michigan already has a MIKE in the 2014 class in the form of Michael Ferns III. If Ferns weren't committed, then I think Garrett would have been offered by now.
Hey, those men worked hard for that roof over their tools! Or.....lack there of..
