That's a nice tie, Ty.
That's a nice tie, Ty.
All hail RDT.
I bet he never doubted this outcome for a second!
Nice edit to the title. Quick thinking!
I'm confused. Do we want him to redshirt or not? Personally I'd rather see him redshirt.
I'm torn. I think I want him to RS because I don't think there's a huge difference between Green and Smith and Green, Smith and Isaac. That said, when it comes to this stuff, I usually take the viewpoint "do what's best for this year and worry about 3 years from now later." So I'm a bit conflicted.
That's pretty much where I am too. I do worry slightly that if his waiver is granted, we may lose either Smith or Green to transfer. At the same time, I want to win NOW. I'm sure it will all work itself out.
I just don't see it. Quiet hardworker who chose us early and made zero noise when we also got Green and had D Harris committed.
If we had known last year we'd end up with Smith, Isaac, and Green, we wouldn't have known what to do with ourselves.
You don't need a great OL and a great RB stable. Either a great OL or great RB group will do it. I'm confident our OL will be serviceable. Here's to hoping these three RBs (plus Drake Johnson and whomever else) get it done.
You do need a strong O-line to be successful. The best SEC teams, Ohio does, so does MSU.
Considering our lack of 2014 RB, and I don't think the addition of Isaac to the Green/Smith combo (and also Justice Hayes) changes the outlook of the offense this season. I think I would like to see him RS. However, if him RS deters Harris from getting back on board, I would like to see him eligable. I think he's going to be eligable this year though. Seems to have a legit hardship argument.
If he is the best bcak, I want him on the field. If he is not, then a RS is fine.
Awesome, awesome news. We can now take our foot off the brakes and floor it!
COOKIE NOW PLEASE
Guys, we're getting Ty Isaac.

Honestly dude, predicting this two days ago wasn't exactly a bold prediction. On a scale of 1 to bold, I give you a 2
I figured, I'm just trying to ride the wave of me picking mercer and dayton months ago.
Jazzing all over myself at school. No one understands!
Nor should they.
That's what I call some Big Ol' Brenda right there.
The other schools had NUSSing on us! Woo puns! See how I TY'ed it all together?
wrong. VERY wrong. Disturbingly wrong.
Shits & giggles time... I put his ground yds at 350 his first year playing for M. Anyone think he'll surpass that?
In week 3!
Hello! Welcome! and Congratulations!
Dang, that's a large dude
WOW, that sure reminds me of Wheatley!
my heart is now healed... carry on.
This is huge! I don't think it matters if he redshirts or not. It will sort itself out. You take this type of talent and deal with any problems later.
Great pick up.
We get a 6'2" 220lb. player who can rb or wr. He's also a proven commodity having produced in his limited touches with USC.
if we can block someone....we might have something on the ground.
Hell yes. Good news at work!
This year? What about next year?
And dare I say an upgrade to our current stable of RB's?! I hope he gets a hardship waiver and competes this fall. I for one am looking forward to seeing him play!
We gave USC Fargas and we got Isaac. Nice doing business with y'all.
Updated incoming transfer history. GREAT players have come here. Let's hope this is like Michigan stealing Heston from SJSU.

|Steven Threet||QB||2007-2008||Georgia Tech|
Thank goodness we stole the dual Threet from GT.
My memory may be faulty, but I don't think he ever became eligible after transferring.
Didn't he start his first game back and never started again?
I also think he may be the first UM player to play at UM, transfer, then play at UM.
Were REALLY good transfers.
Hell yes! Welcome aboard, sir! Now if the O-Line can open some holes we're going to be in great shape.
I sorta hope he has to sit a year cause I am not to confident on the rbs now in this class. Plus I think it would be best for the team. Then we have a more spread out rb class.

Can you further explain that thought? It makes no sense to me.
Just give me negative million points please cause the same stuff people post over and over about stupid stuff that is not even funny anymore and they get plus points.... I love this site and what it posts but come on man!!!!!! How do u give a guy plus points for a picture of a cat or the same picture someone has posted 50 times.
