first comment: "EVERY ATHLETE HAS ASPIRATIONS OF WINNING AND WE HAVE OUR FAVORITES BUT IT IS ALWAYS A PLEASURE TO OTHER STUDENTS ACHIEVE THEIR GOALS, TOO!"
stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly
rundown of Michigan's riser
needs moar usage
so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
If you're gonna go please be in the first round.
another delightful side effect of a 14 team conference
I don't like either site knowing the specifics of my various contributions to either. It's part of my mystique. BUT if you compile the more frequent posters on 11w, and dissect their various writing styles, and general disdain for fellow posters, you should be able to find me fairly quickly. Happy Hunting! :)
Yea, every kid he talks about it seems that OSU leads for. He was also saying there was a good chance OSU would be able to be snagged from Michigan for a lot longer than anyone else thought so.
1. TSIO keeps recruiting him and he gets letters in the mail.
2. Pocic starts to get pissed off, burns one of the letters and posts the pic on Twitter (tactic learned from LTT).
3. Pocic starts getting death threats from disgruntled Ohio fans.
"You owe it to every man, woman, and child in the State of Michigan to beat the Buckeyes and silence their fans! Now go out there and make it happen!"
- Bo Schembechler (Result: U-M 22 OSU 0)
There is no bad in this scenario.
Unless Meyer starts pulling out snake oil from every orifice, most of the Ohio's tackle offers have committed to other schools and they may be looking at a big goose egg at tackle (Lisle I thought is an interior guy).
Lets not get too cocky. It's a long way till signing day. He could easily get a case of the "too far from homes" before putting pen to paper and end up at OSU or Illinois. Hell, maybe if we miss out on some "best availables we might end up flipping him with a last second effort. Who knows?
I find it funny that in the same post you say "Let's not get too cocky" and end by saying "we might end up flipping him with a last second effort."
This isn't a Norfleet situation, jumping from Cinci to Michigan. Pocic has offers from everyone, he could go anywhere he wants basically. The definition of cocky is saying we have a chance to flip if we just last second say we want you.
Practice makes perfect. Unless you're the Buckeyes. Then you have to cheat.
Maybe Logan Tulley-Tillman will receive another letter from Ohio now?
"It's all about the offensive line at LSU and the running game. They love to run the football and it's just a great fit on and off the field for me. I'm glad to have it all done now and I'm really excited about LSU."
I get the feeling Michigan would have been a serious contender for Pocic if we had not filled up because that sounds a lot like Michigan (I guess Les Miles does run LSU with a Schembechler-like mentality).
Bo had a huge influence on Les.... Was drinking some brews with a long serving member of the LSU staff. The only time the Tigers have adjusted their weekly schedule was the week Bo passed away.
CJK5H - allegedly....
Pocic was one of the guys who would have been near the very top of my list for wants in this class. I would have loved for Michigan to get him. Oh well. We've still got a good offensive line class, but I think Pocic is going to be a good one.
Twitter - Recruiting Update: May 20
Good for him and good for Miles - and I agree, Les please stay away from David Dawson.
"No man is more important than The Team. No coach is more important than The Team. The Team, The Team, The Team"
Now Bucknuts is saying that another OT target, Dorian Johnson, verbaled to WVU.
I don't subscribe to 247 so I don't know what the thread is saying, but if true, that's a nother major OT target gone for OSU.
Also mentioned in this OSU Scout thread as well.
Regardless of if he has or hasn't, the kid is all over the place for ratings. 247 has him as a 5 star, 12th best player in the country, and 2nd best OT while Rivals has him as a low 4 star, the 33rd overall tackle.
While I'm happy to see OSU getting shafted for O-Line recruits, it is a bit boggling. Even Buckeyes would concede that - relative to every other position on the field at least - OSU has had a poor record for developing offensive line talent as of late, but at the same time O-Line recruits have to be aware that Jim Bollman no longer is the position coach there.
Urban Meyer isn't an idiot; I'm sure the first thing he shows O-Line recruits is a picture of Bollman working for Boston College and not OSU, and the second thing he shows them is their current depth chart - that's gotta be good for at least 1-2 decent blue-chippers.
Former Buckeye Antonio Pittman on being a poster child for compliance: "This osu tattoo stuff is silly. Cats been getting hookups on tatts since back in '01."
Maybe I'm wrong, but I don't remember a ton of high draft picks coming out of Florida during Meyer's tenure aside from the Pounceys.
Since the '06 draft, the first draft after a year Meyer coached at UF, these have been Florida OL draft picks:
2011: Mike Pouncey- 1st Round, 15th pick
Marcus Gilbert- 2nd round, 63rd pick
Maurice Hurt-7th round, 217th pick
2010: Maurkice Pouncey- 1st round, 18th pick
That's it. So they've had 4 taken, 2 1st rounders, 1 2nd, and 1 7th, all of them in the past 3 years.
4 picks in the 6 years Urban was there, doesn't seem very impressive, especially if you consider that two of those years MNCs were won by Florida.
"The goal, the expectation of this program is the Big Ten Championship"
For comparison look at the last 6 years for Michigan and how many draft picks there were. Considering how bad some of those lines were, how thin the depth was, and the known deficiencies in OL development from the end of Carr's tenure the fact that Michigan had more OL drafted from 06-12 puts that number into perspective.
He put out some big defensive ends, particularly Harvey as well as Harvin.
Derrick Harvey was a defensive end...but Percy Harvin was a wide receiver.
