Reese's cups and gatorade for free!??!?! oh boy. major violations are coming.
Reese's cups and gatorade for free!??!?! oh boy. major violations are coming.
you put /sarcasm but in all seriousness, what is allowed? Is food permitted? Below a certain $$ amount???
i was kind of wondering the same thing. There has to be some dollar amount or intent to give an unfair advantage i'm sure.
2 Resses cups = ok
1 Truck Load of Resses cups = not ok
The NCAA probably has a specific number of grams of sugar permitted at each unofficial visit.
USC interprets 'sugar' in a very different way.
for the Freep to "misinterpret" the rule on allowable sugar grams and run a front page story.
How many pallets are on this truck?
are they countable Reese's cups?
as long as they're not "big cups" I think you're ok =)
You mean like Terrence Cody?
no one wants to see that
I think I just threw up a little bit in my mouth.
Well if somehow he get drafted by the Lions I'll be a happy camper (2ed/3ed round).
P.S. Whats with the big boys from ALA taking there shirts off all the time (Andre Smith last year), No one wants to see the "Moobs".
With the dreads, should have been a Wolverine...
For a minute I thought it was a reference to Lane Kiffin's...ahem...recruiting hostesses at Tennessee.
Blazefire hasn't gotten to this one yet? Is he going to just leave all those MGoPoints hanging there?
Is that what it takes to get to the Glenville kids? Barwis would be furious if he knew
Why isn't his name Goliath?
Where's the MGoCreeper van? We've got a sure-fire commitment post if it can get to Ohio with some leftover Reese's Easter egss!
That's it, let's get it rollin'
too clean to be a creeper van? Creeper vans need more rust, scratches...and bald tires. IME.
Only the ones at the nicest rest stops. Don't be so elitist.
Is this better or worse than a Jewish giant? Do Jews even play football?
they actually play the game quite well.
You mean he's not Jewish?
So much for that Yeshiva offer he's been waiting on.
I hope that RichRod can start getting recruits from there again. This kid is going to be good.
Even if Ginn can't convince him to go to O$U wouldn't he at least steer him somewhere else, he's not lacking in premium offers. I think we have more of a chance with Cardale Jones because Michigan is his best shot for playing QB.
I sure hope we can get our foot in the door there. That is a big big boy too.
We just need to get one of these guys just to have a presence at Glenville, if it happens to be this kid that would be even better because this kid sounds like a big time prospect
PSU has also offered and, given their proximity to Hershey PA, we don't really have a chance on this one. Sorry to be a buzz kill on this one!
He also gave his top 3 in that article... UM not among them.
Agree with mgowin... this one isn't happening.
What was his Top 3?
actually it was OSU, MSU and USC. Though you can put in whatever schools you want for places 2 and 3.
Which he followed up by saying that "if he had a fourth, it would be Michigan". So, deep thought and meditation has led me to believe that he as a top four, and Michigan is fourth.
It still baffles me that MSU is somehow ahead of Michigan right now according to Aundrey. Talk about the obviousness that Michigan gets no love from the Glenville coaches.
Move along sir, move along.
He was given Reese's cups AND a Gatorade - isn't that what Kiffin said to use? I've got an inkling that Lane didn't share the real recipe for a guaranteed commitment. I now have reason to doubt his integrity.
how fat do u think the roll of cash in that handshake is?
oh and i think kiffin is standing on a stool because he isnt completely dwarfed by henderson in the pic.
I believe Kiffin uses a smoking hot coed or 4 wearing Reese's cups as pasties and body shots of Gatorade.
Lesson number one in culinary school - it's all in the presentation.
At least he's not a genital giant.
Exactly: big shoes.
(To make him feel better).
He's going to Ohio State. He'll do what basically every other Glenville kid does and drag the process out into January, take visits, be open to all schools, maybe even name a different leader or two (Marcus Hall)...and then he will commit to Ohio State, as Glenville kids do.
Will you then put him on your most hated athlete's list? I keed I keed.
Did you know that Glenville has placed 22 kids on the top Ohio prospect list, per Rivals, in the 2006 through 2010 classes.
And more of them went to schools not named Ohio State.
So when somebody says, he will commit to Ohio State as Glenville kids do, there really shoud be an addendum that reads except for the kids who go to Tennessee, Illinois, Iowa, Miami Florida, Boston College, Purdue, Toledo, Wisconsin, Marshall and Indiana (Ray Fisher, hell yeah!).
I dont expect this kid to commit. I aint an insiderz, or even a pretend insiderz, so I know nothing about where any of these kids are going. But, I dont think this is a wasted effort by the Rodriguez staff. They are recruiting the entire state, this high school included even if it looks like a wasted effort to those of us watching from this board.
But my main point is this kid isnt an OSU lock because all Glenville kids go to Ohio State. That meme just is not true.
In that span, I believe only two Glenville kids with an OSU offer didn't go to OSU.
Cordale Scott and Latwan Anderson. It *can* happen. It's just not likely.
I think Latwan Anderson had his offer pulled after getting physical with a teacher.
Tressel doesn't need to take those kind of chances on recruits.
Jamie, what your list tells me is that kids from Glenville either go to OSU, or to a clearly inferior schoool (sans UT and Miami, but did Latwan have an OSU offer? He wasn't a real Glenville kid anyway, he only played there his senior year). I'd be willing to bet that almost all of the kids who went to the schools you listed did not have an OSU offer.
So maybe it's not that "all Glenville kids go to OSU" but more like "all Glenville kids go to OSU who have that as an option." And this kid has that as an option.
That said, our other boy at Glenville (Cardale something?) does not have an OSU offer, and probably won't get one to play QB. That is a much more likely option.
All good points...well, except for the one about Indiana and Toledo being inferior. That just hurts.
My point with the numbers was not this guy will come here, you watch! But rather to point out that Glenville recruits are not out of the question for anyone. And to quell some of the disdain seen in threads regarding Glenville that Michigan is somehow wasting their time. I felt that tenor in one or two posts up thread.
I think its significant that 10 other schools picked up Glenville recruits, some multiple commitments, in the last 4 years. But to WolvinLa's point on the QB recruit, these numbers are more appropriate for that discussion.
But I still dont think its accurate to assume a Glenville kid will automatically go to OSU, regardless of the deeper look taken at those numbers on the offer issue. In the last class, the high school's top ranked recruit went elsewhere, despite an OSU offer. In two of the last four years, OSU lost a Glenville recruit despite having offered. And I dont neceassirly use the offer as the sole arbiter of interest on the part of the university. Besides, most of those kids without offers also didnt have offers, and in a lot of case any interest, from Michigan. What happens if Michigan offers some of those kids? There was OSU interest in just about every one. You'd see more OSU offers, but I dont think you can say you'd see more OSU commits. Some of those kids had nice offer lists and dont think they're putting everything on hold for the home state school. Some kids dont like that late offer BS. Too much pride, if you will. Not saying they'd be going to Michigan, but there's a good chance they'd go one of the other schools on their lists.
But, whatever. My main point is this isnt a waste of time for Michigan. I'd like to see them extend their efforts and start offering those Glenville kids who seem destined for elsehwere outside of Columbus. At a school with that much talent, you cant just show up for the top prospect. If you dont show any interest in the rest, you'll have no chance with the blue chip in a situation like this.
I like seeing Rodriguez and Co getting more involved with this school. It's the right thing to do as part of their recruit the whole state of Ohio strategy, within the framework of their entire recruiting strategy.
... must be the arch-nemesis of Inglourious Basterds character "The Bear Jew."
Solid comedy at the beginning, and good discussion at the end. Excellent work by the MGoCommunity.
I love that this thread is missing the political correctness that mauls usual threads of this nature. I don't usually post, but I'm so proud of you sons of bitches.
