Anyone know why Rich Rod would be flying to New Orleans? I tried a quick search and didn't see anything relevant. And yes, to answer the follow-up question, I am that bored.
Anyone in New Orleans need Snake Oil?
Probably to visit the french quarter and get an early start on marti gras.
Hopefully TMZ doesn't snap a photo of him with Mike Tomlin and the GGW girls
What position does Marti play?
How long are his arms?
He's going to scalp tickets to the NFC Championship game?
Carvin Johnson and possibly Dileo.
I was thinking the exact same thing but why is he visiting recruits that are perceived to be guarantee locks?
Where he SHOULD be flying to is California (Parker, Baxter) and Florida (Dorsey, Knight).
Head coaches should always take advantage of their allowed in-home visit. Why should he neglect curent commits for ones that are not yet committed? Do you actually think RichRod is so stupid that he would NOT do an in-home with Parker, Baxter, Knight, and Dorsey?? He only get ONE. He has to choose it wisely.
And, by the way, he's flying to Cali next.
The only "locks" are EE guys. Plus, Johnson has been getting a lot of attention and has been upgraded since M picked up his verbal - recruiting is a marathon.
In addition to Carvin and Dileo, RRod is probably also talking to some 2011 recruits and local high school coaches. Lets not forget that RRod was the OC at Tulane in 97-98, so he probably has a few recruiting connections in NOLA.
I hope he's bringing Beignets to Johnson and Dileo.
I think he is meeting lane kiffin and they are getting an 8 ball and some hookers
He went to convince Reggie Bush to aid in the ongoing investigation into USC's athletic department.
Dandy Don gives Bush a 60%-40% chance of coming clean.
He's going to try and throw a football into a giant can of Dr. Pepper at halftime of the NFC Championship game for $50,000. If successful, he will promptly retire from coaching to live off his winnings.
He needed the 3500 air miles to upgrade on his next flight to California.
from Mama LaRouche's House of Voodoo down on Canal Street.
He's doing an in-home with Carvin Johnson and also talking to some '11 recruits.
Good to hear he's locking up Johnson, if there's one under the radar '10 recruit who other coaches could be targeting for a last minute coup, it might be Carvin...
to persuade Les Miles to become the linebackers coach.
why didn't he facebook poke me and let me know he would be down here :(
Punt Pass and Kick finals are Sunday. He's taking in the 8-10 year old category. Early offer to a Samantha Greaks who blew away the boys.
EDIT - the use of 'blew' probably wasn't the best idea!
Particularly with the age range you used...
I feel a bit dumb asking (because it probably means I missed something somewhere)... but will someone explain to me how the info on flightaware translates into Rich Rod being on that flight? All I see is that a 30-year-old puddle-jumper owned by a company in Columbus flew from Oakland Cty to Ann Arbor to NOLA to Baton Rouge. What piece am I missing that connects RR to that flight?
This thread is where I got it from and just bookmarked it (lots of long days...). From what I can tell it stems from the coaching search a long time back.
Word is he went down to Louisiana to get some V.
Maybe nobody else got it, but I did. +1
Didn't someone mention a Space Emperor sighting in New Orleans a few weeks ago? Maybe the two are par-taying!!!
im excited to see what Carvin can do at Michigan he looks like hes improving.
Also off this topic: Does anyone think Ricardo Miller will have any immediate impact?
Rivals thinks that he and/or Jeremy Jackson could play early.
If Ricardo can contribute on the outside, I would love for him to see early PT. Howeva, there is a lot of competition at that position with Jr, Stokes, Stonum, Cameron Gordon (switch to LB??) as well as the other freshmen. I honestly hope we can get a lot of production from the upperclassmen at receiver so we can redshirt the freshmen and not have to recruit more than 1-2 receivers in next years class. This way we can finally stop playing true freshmen all over the field and balance out our recruiting and focus on some linemen for next years class.
Everyone here is all wrong. Dileo and Carvin are in the bag, he's not going to visit them.
Signing day is coming soon, so he's merely traveling to Louisiana in order to purchase some Snake Oil. Anyone who's ever been down to the Bayou/NOLA knows that Voodoo and black magic are about as much as part of Louisiana as Gators and Crawdads.
They have the best Snake Oil around, and Rich Rodriguez has recognized this. Kudos to him. He's stocking up.
How do you think Les Miles was able to take Jai Eugene away from Lloyd Carr? It wasn't negative recruiting - He merely made a quick trip down to Orleans Parish and got a few bottles of Snake Oil to use.
Quit the snake oil talk - We don't want other coaches to get in on his secret.
It's just so over, this snake oil reference. Just sayin'
I do believe he's down trying to secure our future at LB. There seems to be some kid down there is Jackson's Bayou worth looking at. Word is he can lay the wood on QBs! Too bad he's not rated on any services or anything...
For the record, I've decided to neg every post that mentions snake oil. That joke got old by the time the '08 season was over. Maybe even sooner.
