ESPN Predicts Hand to M
is this the year that ESPN is the most accurate recruiting service or the worst one?
Pretty sure it's the most accurate this year
ESPN is definitely the best this year. They just made Moe Ways a 4 star! They're knocking it out of the park
ESPN is the most accurate until the point where they predict something that angers MGoBlog, then they are a bunch of SEC loving hacks, until they say something we like again - funny how that works.
Not really funny...more like science.
So that is what they mean when they talk about the science of recruiting. Thanks
Is very accurate this year. Rivals seems to be the worst this year.
they have TomVH and Chantel working for them, so they will be the most accurate.
Two people disagree with ESPN I guess
I'm pretty sure big10football is the Bizarro-Brian.
...Did the OP downvote himself?
Which seems like poor form, so I downvoted to cancel it out.
And for your commitment to honest blogging, I upvoted.
My mama says that if you downvote yourself too much, you'll go blind
Did you trip?
#68 Malik McDowell
#89 Artavis Scott
#91 Parrker Westphal
All of the above were predicted to Michigan as well.
#5 Adoree Jackson is showing Florida but with almost no confidence
#66 Jamarco Jones is showing Ohio with very high confidence
Hooray for speculation!
That's funny, I predict Hand to Michigan, too..
Is that because Michigan looks like a hand?
But they are predicting David Wang and Arnie Danglepenis to Florida
And it's a dogfight between Colorado and Wyoming for Alex Rectangle
That has ever been posted on here.
I'm not sure I should admit this, but I just googled "Arnie Danglepenis" to see if that's a thing or that's just you continuing to be a funny SOB. Hats off to you, BiSB.
Even though there were no hits, I'm in a Starbucks and not "feeling lucky" enough to check the images.
Growblue hilarious! BiSB..pure genius
Is his offer committable?
His offer is firm.
six more months of speculation, guessing, wishing, and clinging to his every word. December is a long ways away.
Not to be a Debbie downer, but HOLY POOP FACE LSU is predicted to score a ton of top 50 ESPN recruits. If everything went the way ESPN predicts it, they would definitely be rocking that top spot over UM. Of course, these are just predictions, but still...
That is not surprising considering how loaded they are for 2014.
This is a good thing. Let them drain some talent away from Alabama. Also, they are in the running for the QB that Ohio State covets. We want them to win that battle.
The day that we have to worry about LSU's 2014 recruiting strength will be a very excellent day for us, because we would be facing them in the NC playoffs.
I thought something about this was already posted but I definitely think the confidence meter is new or at least I don't remember it from last time. I wonder if they base that on how many insiders think they are going to the school they picked or if it's just the strength of the lead insider's gut feeling.
Hard to tell what the confidence meter is based on.
They only tell us:
Our predictions are based on what we're hearing from high school coaches and from the prospects themselves. They are subject to change as more information becomes available.
I'm guessing they got regional analysts to make their best predictions and tuned that into one big list.
"He's been playing it very close to the vest" is Rivals disclaimer when they have no clue
When Green picked UM last year, I thought that would be the biggest recruit to sign during Hoke's tenure. Now we've got the #2 player in the country committed and #1 isn't much of a longshot anymore.
That seems like an extremely pessimistic outlook. You thought Hoke's best recruit would come after his second year? We might as well fire him now.
The B1G is looking to become Michigan/Ohio State and everyone else real quick. I a single player predicted to go to any other big ten school?
This will probably still come down to the wire. At least one SEC school is going to be a serious contender for his services. Competing in the best conference in football, and that year-round warm weather is pretty damn alluring.
Here's to hoping Hoke and Mattison work their magic.
I think that Swag Mattison has way more allure than what any SEC coach can offer...
Year round heat is way overrated....
would be a new station named ESPN 2 so one never knows. Chances are 50/50 at this point, and that's all it takes for them to make an annoncement of some type.
Hand stop the Tomfoolery and commit to Michigan for god sakes...we are burnin days for you and Mr. Peppers to recruit the best defensive team in NCAA history.
Hand, McDowell, Scott, Furbush and Jackson or Smith. Toss in a sleeper RB and a camp OT and wrap this deal up.
