ESPN is wrong.
Erroneous. ESPN is NEVER wrong. (right?)
the leader of the wide world must be infallible
Hey maybe look at his other offers? I don't think Alabama, Florida and auburn are going to offer a shmuck running back buddy.
They simply cut and pasted their 8 year old evaluation of MIKE Hart into the article by mistake.
SInce ESPN is infallible, I will stop being enthusiastic.
I wonder what ESPN said about Denardinho
I don't have premium on ESPN, but here is their teaser about Denard. He was the #7 rated athlete in the class, a grade of 81, and #101 overall.
Robinson and ATH Brandon McGee could be twins in this class as both are about 5'11, very athletic, quick and actually very accomplished passers, but it will take the right offense and coaching staff to commit to them as QB's as opposed to making the move to corner or wide receiver...
ESPN is omniscient?
Rivals lists Dee as the #1 All-Purpose back in the country and as possessing "Blue Chip Speed".
ESPN is too busy sucking up to the SEC and pimping ESPN3 to follow recruiting accurately.
What has happened to this board in the past couple months?
So.... what you're saying is that guys like Barry Sanders aren't good at football?
The last running back named Hart that we got wasn't suppose to be very good either.
If indeed that is your real name. Prepare to get negged beyond your wildest dreams.
also, you are retarded.
I find myself continually refreshing this page just to watch canzior point total plumet. Its kinda fun. Its dipped below 50 already.
Negative numbers! Its like the limbo. Canzior, how low can you go? Weeeeeee! this is a fun game!
You know absolutely nothing about the read option if you believe the only type of back we want is a "Home run threat". A versatile( run and pass) back who hits the hole quickly and is tough to bring down is RR's dream back. That is Dee Hart to a T.
ESPN's review is a real low blow when they resort to this:
"who would be garnering more national attention if he just had a few extra inches"
Cmon man, he isn't even on campus yet and you are giving coeds a poor impression.
Sounds like his work to me. If Hart was looking at OSU he would be Barry Sanders 2.0. ESPN recruiting generally sucks.
when I say that when it comes to ESPN scouting reports, I buy into the positive reports and ignore the negative ones.
probably thought Joey Harrington was the Lions saviour. Just sayin.
The actually still believe he is.
Your avatar says it all. Seriously, an ESPN slappy? You should seriously get your information from another source.
While I don't think that just because ESPN says it we should stop going after him, I will say that in the past ESPN has been spot on at times. If I remember correctly, two years ago ESPN was saying that Will Campbell would need time to develop, and didn't see him him being a big contributor right away. In addition, they didn't see him being anywhere close to the world killer Scout and Rivals had him pegged as. Meanwhile, they thought that Roh would be the best player to come out of that class (Obviously not true with DAAAANARD, but Roh has been 2nd or 3rd best from that class to this point).
In the end though, none of the recruiting sites are perfect. He seems to fit the mold of a Slaton type so its worth getting him on-board.
is up with the Sprarty invasion, here?
Since negging costs people points, they are hesitant to neg bomb Sparty's out of this forum.
This presents a problem, as MGoBlog is now becoming Mlive-ish.
Neg bombs are the answer.
It is bordering on M-Live with all of the newbie posters.
Point total has to be raised this is getting absurd.
I would rather neg bomb an idiot than hoard my MGoPoints.
anything but positive? If I knew nothing else about him and I could guarantee they were right about him, I'd take him on my team right now. Why wouldn't anyone want a back like that?
He doesn't possess blue chip speed lol..thats a joke...i've seen his videos...many of them and he is getting run down from behind.
Great stats...really relevant. Against a school with a nationally recognized....BAND? Guess how much that means at the college level?
I'm not saying he isn't a good back, he's a great back but he's getting a lot of attention and Mike Shaw is a damn good back ALREADY. VIncent Smith might be the best blocking back on the team...and we haven't gotten a good look at the other 3 backs on the team...who are all big, physical runners with speed. He's headlining our recruiting and I would rather focus our attention on a 4 or 5 star db/safety than a 4 or 5 star rb. We should all prefer to have better secondary talent.
Yeah, every back that can't run a 4.4 40 really sucks. Mike Shaw is pretty good but he's not great. And he will be gone in 2 years, and then Smith will be gone, and then who will play? Smith isn't starting RB material. He's good enough when he gets 10 carries a game, but he can't take 25-30.
Dude, stop. The hole you are digging is getting deeper.
Yes, because the coaches are only allowed to recruit one kid at a time.
From the sounds of it, ESPN should hire you... you are about as good at talent evaluated as they are.
what part of "broke school record" didn't i spell right? that means constantly putting up numbers. and with a #1 RB don't you think more defensive recruits MAY consider coming here? If you've seen his videos then you've seen how fast he can change direction... and how easily he can score, and his punt returns..EOT
neg bang, Neg Bang, NEG BANG
you're not from around here, are ya?
2. You're right. We have running backs with inifinite eligibility.
At first I thought this was going to be sarcastic. Then I realized you're just not too smart. He sounds like Mike Hart? I would NEVER want another RB like Mike. He really sucked, right?
Thought the same thing. I was expecting it to be a shot at ESPN for their recruiting blowyness.
overused but obligatory
he must be good?
Kill me now..
Dee if you are reading this, this retard fish frog does not speak for the board or the Michigan fan base.
Come to Michigan! Our helmets gots wings on dem!
My favorite part of this: "Sounds like more of a Mike Hart"
Damn, why would we want a back who is like the leading rusher in the history of our program. Man, it would suck to have that.
Also, Alabama and Auburn don't seem to troubled by his speed.
On a related topic, what the hell is all this hype over this "shoelace" guy? I mean, he's not terrible, but...
Nothing brought up in that ESPN scouting report makes him an unfavorable prospect for us. That's exactly what we need, someone with great vision and explosiveness to get through the seems this running game develops. Couple that with power and balance? That means he'll probably win some of those "1 v 1" mathcups all the experts say we generate, and then he could start crawling because there's no one left. It is so incredibly rare to find a runningback who torches defenders down the field, and the value of that really isn't that high compared to other skills, such as YAC, vision, and quickness, all of which Dee posses. He also has hands out of the backfield, which is great in a Rich Rodriguez system (See: Steve Slaton's flare screens run about 5x per game). I agree with the ESPN report (On some levels, I think he can be a feature guy here), he really doens't have homerun speed, but nobody cares because that isn't a telling attribute for anything really.
Wait, so the OP only wants running backs who will take it to the house on every snap? You quoted ESPN as saying " More of a back who will rip off the 10-15 yard burst than a homerun threat." Is it a problem if he only rips off a dozen yards a carry? Are you morally against 12-play, 80-yard drives?
Why don't you get a horse and move into the mountains and stop bothering people. You have the personality of a dead moth.
A small explosive package.
But seriously. He fast. And even if he wasn't are you really saying "oh noes another Mike Hart!"
Because he is a good player?
So what you're saying is, you wouldn't want Mike Hart with RRod as our coach?
