The nutty Michigan coverage isn't so much about Harbaugh as it is a signal to the Big Ten that Fox wants to party.
with this one, too:
Uh, guys. We are going to win the national championship this season. I hate to tell everyone out there, but they are simply playing for 2nd place. AND yes, I've only said that 100 times since March. Save up for Dallas, because the Michigan football team and band are going.
Doesn't mean much if you don't get a tattoo!
Great News. Welcome aboard Ty.
So it's true then? Hoke still can recruit!!
Yep. Jim Harbaugh will love coaching the two 5 star RB's, one 4 star RB, one 4 star FB, and five 4 star OL's from the class of 2013.
can we get some Kate up in here?
TB depth for 2014 (assuming hardship granted):
Someone mentioned Brandon Minor, and i think that is a good comparison for Isaac.
At the 2:30 mark of the following link is a very nice run of his from USC vs CAL.
I'd never wish ill on anyone, but if Laquon Treadwell's mother could also develop a conditon that made it impossible to travel, I'd be ok with that.
Just hope Treadwell doesn't wish the same upon your mother...
But from the sound of it, you'd take that fate-trade
Where everyone is a sarcastic jokester yet no one can take a joke.
As an occasional victim of MGoBlog “negification,” I can empathize with your plight.
I’m very old, but as I’ve wandered through the valley of the shadow of MGoBlog’s banners, gradually I’ve discovered that there are certain subjects such as politics, religion, ethnicity, race relations, gender discrimination, sexual relations, sexual preferences, personal attacks on others and their friends and family, wishing someone ill (even when prefaced by a caveat), assaults on moderators and, especially in my case, writing in verse, that probably are taboo and are verboten.
I often wish that I'd never touched this button
Would Ole Miss still send backpacks full of 100s though?
Please un-bunch your ladies garments.
THE REVERSE FARGAS
I did have a dream last night that I missed the opening game and checked the boxscore only to see that Michigan won 76-34, with all three running backs rushing for over 1,000 yards in the game (and as a typical Michigan fan I was upset that they let up 34 points). Let's hope that dream comes to fruition.
If we had 3k yards rushing in a game and only scored 76 points. I would be pretty upset with the offense too.
DG had 14 picks. Just joking.
3,000+ yards of offense and only 76 points? Fire Nuss.
Maybe the reports are wrong. But from what's been reported, the hardship involves his mother not being able to fly due to some sort of ear surgery. Not sure this will qualify as bona fide hardship -- especially since Ty didn't transfer to a school within 100 miles of Joliet.
Agreed. Sorry about the mom. But an ear surgery that keeps mom from flying doesn't seem to merit hardship. Plus, the kid didn't come close to the 100-mile radius.
well I have something that would be somewhat similar, and I can't do a lot more than just flying...
are you seriously questioning the legitimacy of a parent's desire to their son play football? sure, many parents live far away from where their students and never see them play (and they are medically able to fly). that's their choice. but to be unable to do so because of a medical condition is entirely different. She isn't driving to California for a game. If the physician that cares for her deems her unable to fly, who are you to say otherwise?
Isaac can get the waiver because it is compatible with the 'spirit of the law'. It doesn't need to meet the 100-mile requirement because the NCAA has historically decided matters on a case by case basis.
Because hardship means real hardship, ie: a player with a relative who's in bad shape, physically or financially. Usually the waiver is so the player can go home to help out, be supportive. I'm just not sure having a parent who can't fly to games due to a bad ear will qualify as significant hardship. Also, how many players have parents who fly cross-country to their games? Most definitely do not.
Hopefully she at least flew out there once.
the NCAA tends to decide things on a case by case basis, and I could see them sympathizing with a mother and a desire to attend a game to see her son play. Exhibit A, in which the NCAA tends to decide things on a case by case basis, and has worked out in our favor, Devin's medical -
Knows his moms medical condition. The no fly b/c ear surgery is just a rumor.
Also, even if it's not, nobody knows how bad her condition is. Not everything has to be cancer to be serious.
Definitely runs upright and strong. The thing that surprised me is his 6th gear separation. The kid sure can move at 6'2.
people on Rivals saying he won't get it, I believe the NCAA could grant it, if they wanted to (because they can)
when will we know, either way?
The NCAA kills me. Makes a non paid student athlete sit out a year on a transfer AFTER they have to appeal to the school to be released- with restrictions.
They should make Coaches have to sit out a year too when they jump shop.
Enough pontificating, now, if we could only get some O lineman to transfer to block for all these stud backs...
However,you've made it home...HAIL!!
I don't want to come off as Fred Jackson here, because I'm in no way implying that these 2 are even close to their level... But I know another big, relatively fast back that runs upright, his name is TJ Yeldon... With Nuss in two and if he can squeeze the potential out of our highly touted OLine... Couldn't Green and Isaac effectively become Lacy/Yeldon lite??? Wishful thinking sure, but not impossible.
100% reminds me of yeldon's style
Who in the world would neg this???
I'm in the redshirt camp. We already have (likely anyway) two solid backs in the 2013 class, not to mention Drake Johnson if he gets healthy. Nobody in the 2014 class at all. If we want to develop a "shark teeth" type of dynaic with our RB corps similar to what we eventually want for our O-Line, the team is best served getting at least one RB per class if we can.
Ty sitting out a year also takes the recruiting pressure off that position for 2015. So in the event that Harris and Weber or Patrick don't look like they're going to the pull the trigger for Michigan, we don't necessarily have to pull out all the stops or burn a scholarship just to get SOMEBODY to avoid having a 2 year drought of RB recruits. We still pursue our 2015 targets obviously, but if things develop poorly on the RB front for the 2015 class, it'll be easier for coaches to start focusing their time & energy on other positions once things get down to the wire.
If he can get a waiver he plays this fall.
In 2015, Michigan may very well have the most talented RB group in the Big Ten.
No excuse not to have the most talented RB group this year. RB's are supposed to be able to compete early (like as freshmen) as it's an easier transition. There is no reason that this group shouldn't be the top group in the B1G.
Derrick Green - 5 Star Sophomore
De'veon Smith - 4 Star Sophomore
Justice Hayes - 4 Star RS Junior
Ty Isaac - 5 Star Sophomore
Drake Johnson - 3 Star RS Sophomore
Our 1st team defense should be ready to go facing a scout team of: Speight, Hayes/Johnson, Dukes/York, and all 20 of our OL from the last two years on a daily basis.
It is great to have Ty Isaac on board. I really don't care whether the NCAA gives him a waiver or not. Having said that, I'm all for him playing, if he is the best back, should he be cleared by the NCAA to play now.
I also love the sense that Michigan is not slacking in recruiting. I really am looking forward to this coming season.
bring on the THE PARTY ROOM appreciation/posbang thread!!
Gonna need more from the offensive line and out of Gardner in order of Issac to be effective.
