"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
anybody hear anything as to how his visit went??
If you see what he just retweeted, I think he may be ready to go Blue
Can someone please explain what traits "project to center", and why of our 8 lineman (2012/13) only 1 or 2 of them maybe fit that description?
I understand the basics of why tackles are different, but I always thought a center was just a Guard who snaps.
Feel free to start up discussion in a different thread, I don't have enough points to make one.
If your guard starts to grow in the direction of tackle is isn't the end of the world. If your center grows into a tackle, you have a problem. 6' 6"/6' 7" guards can adjust technique and how they stand to compensate for the higher center of gravity and all that. A 6' 7" center is still locked into his stance (one hand down, one on the ball) due to the nature of the game.
Keep in mind we're recruiting 17 year olds at this point. A guy who is 6' 5" might be 6' 7" by the time his playing career here ends (or heck even by the time he makes it to campus). Kind of like how OLBs grow into WDEs and DEs grow into DTs. Nothing really "grows into" a center, unless you start converting TEs or FBs, which is far from ideal.
Now I have something more to look foreward to other that going to work!
I love being a wolverine.
I know it's probably best to ignore them, hell even RollDamnTide (everyone's favorite non-Michigan fan contributor), can't believe how idiotic they are. I'll just take solace in these numbers: 67-32-5
Apparently it's Laquon's birthday too.
Edit: Apparently it is his not his birthday (his interview with Ace said it was june 14th) Still. He should commit. It'd be like his birthday!
He sure does talk a lot.
Have always said that they want people who are committed to Michigan, and no doubt they are focusing on who recruits with both great talent, ability to get into Michigan, and who want to be here. Given that trifecta, makes sense we would be getting lots of early commits.
I am still in shock.If someone would have said this was going to happen friday on this board They would have been minus one and flaimbaited!
Hey, no one committed while I was sleeping last night. What's going on here?
My guess is Ethan Pocic
Great, now I will be completely useless at work today.
If the De'Niro Laster gets offered today, it will take him all of 3 seconds to hop on board.
It wouldn't shock me if Munger would jump on board with an offer today either.
Ross Douglas may pine for an Ohio offer for awhile, so an immediate commitment from him today would surprise me a bit.
Of course, this is inferring that Aqua was talking about a visitor today ready to jump on board. With the pressure to hop on board that Hoke has created with the big weekend, it could be anyone.
He was pretty adament about waiting until the all star game to announce so this kinda suprised me. I assumed he was going blue either way, obviously this weekends' momentum shifted his view but still surprised me. Honestly i havent sent this many text messages, emails, twitter posts, and facebook posts in a long long time. Hoke has proved all the doubters (me included) wrong since day one. Im beyong happy too call myself a douche for doubting.
Don't worry brotha. I think a lot of us felt the same way about 13 mo ths ago.
If this is what it feels like to be wrong I don't ever want to be right.
We now recruit like Texas... and that is a beautiful thing.
is this after tuley tillman committed or before?
so, so, good!
