Football Display Case
good luck gents
You may be getting ahead of yourself, MLive dude. Drake Harris had 8 catches for 243 yards against Watts-Jackson's OLSM last fall.
i find this extremely interesting
i may have altered the title
i thought this was america
like I said on twitter: that was almost as intense as Iowa NIT games
...talks about how UConn hasn't been in contact and how they're out. (HT: UMHoops)
Jalen, Burke, and Simmons.
Mike Hart the heavy favorite in the trolling competition
just what the Pistons need: a third string center. Joe Dumars was replaced by a mean ol' alien a few years back you guys.
this would be a close approximation of hypothetical graduation speech
no you guys they're just super pumped about COLLLLLLLLLLLLEGE
not a surprise
Dabo Swinney ahead of Hoke really?
"Are you an official here?Because you've officially given me a boner."
4 6.1 players in one class.
gotta respect being able to convince athletes like sammy watkins and taj boyd to play at clemson (of all places...)
This is home...
He might not even be the best recruiter in his state.Spurrier I think takes that.
Swinney, unlike the ol' ball coach, can make it rain.

Meet Mike Bellamy
"I mean, everyone does ... kills people, murders people, steals from you, steals from me."
"We ain't come here to play school"
That was his only good class in 6 years, though. Since 2008 his recruit classes have been 12th, 37th, 19th, 8th, 14th, and this year they're sitting at 21st.
"that's why you don't go to Ohio State, Lawrence"
but its Clemson. CLEMSON.
You make it sound like Duke or something. Clemson is a sleeping giant if they ever got a good coach.
You sound like a Clemson fan. The program isn't a sleeping giant. It is the MSU of South Carolina.
The overall series record between Clemson and South Carolina is 65-41-4 in favor of Clemson.
Since 1980, the record is 21-11 in favor of Clemson.
Since 1990, the record is 14-9 in favor of Clemson
Since 2000, the record is 7-6 in favor of Clemson.
Tell us again how Clemson is Michigan State and South Carolina is Michigan?
not to mention one of the best campuses around and the girls... wow
If you see someone in an airport with Michigan logos on luggage and they are wearing a pilot uniform come say hello.
Academics. My wife's side of the family is from Charleston, SC. The Clemson fan base are the redneck brah's of the rivalry. South Carolina fans are bit more mature and refined.
Clemson's campus is a giant trash heap as well. My crew team in college spent spring training in clemson. There is maybe one stop light and that's it.
And there is no way that the USC fans are less redneck than Clemson fans. They each have their share. Personally, I like Clemson's campus a lot better than USC. USC is right in Columbia while Clemson is on the shores of the lake. More of a campus town feel. USC is just concrete.
South Carolina. South Caroilna is... they have only recently become relevant comparatively speaking with the hire's of Holtz and Spurrier.
Clemson's overall record is 668–450–45 with 68 All-Americans, 15 Academic All-Americans, and 169 NFL players.
USC on the other hand is 566-544-44. With 20 All-Americans.
Clemson has 18 conference titles vs South Carolina's 1
And 1 National vs South Carolina's 0.
My parents retired to the Clemson area and yes they are a sleeping giant.
"Hey guys, you ever take Bath Salts?"
Fuck it, Dude, let's go bowling.
not surprising to see the 2 biggest douche bags in sports at the "top".
This list is dumb. These coaches are all selling great products (Swinnney aside). What about James Franklin and Hugh Freeze who both have higher ranked classes than Clemson?
Galileo was also chastised.
While these coaches are selling great products, Hugh Freeze* may be giving away products for free.
*Well, more like Ole Miss boosters.
Well if so he's giving stuff away more successfully than anyone else. More succesfully than Auburn.
college football has officially hit a new low with that post

hands down, no contest
He's obviously still laying in the weeds
"Ohio is like a giant turd that Michigan just can't pinch off"
How do you even measure this?
How are three Northern schools in the top 5? Only good recruits and recruiters are in the South!
Les Miles is most followed NCAA Football coach on twitter! I think hes had more success than Sweeney recruiting. Just shocked not see him in the top 5!
Him top five. Look at nfl draft picks and consistent top 10 finishes
Dabo?!? Come on.
Wow, how is this list not all SEC?
Brady Hoke: Kicking Ass And Signing Names On The Recruiting Trail
Because the list wasn't done by ESPN
"I think Hoke has changed the tide on the rivalry. Hell people in Ohio are starting to believe him. Never in a million years I would have thought that. Selling Michigan jerseys is a good start."
Another thing, people love to talk about how guys like Meyer, Hoke and Kelly are great recruiters. Go look at the recruits they were pulling in at Utah, BGSU, Ball St., SDSU, CMU and Cinci. Seriously go do it. They weren't lighting the recruiting world on fire by any stretch and now that they're in power jobs BOOM five stars. That's not to say these guys aren't doing great jobs for their schools, but they get a bit too much credit.
Yeah but look at all the other power schools they're competing against. Recruiting at those small schools and recruiting against the big boys are completely different games with different goals. Look at how much better Hoke is recruiting than he who must not be named for fear of starting a thread destroying broken record. Recruiting for Michigan is quite obviously not easy enough for any schmuck to succeed. Nor is it at any other school.
"Michigan Defense" is dominating everything, in every aspect of life. That's a rough definition.
-Craig Roh 10/29/2011
There aren't many schools that have that kind of pull. USC, Florida, LSU, Alabama, Texas OK. Maybe Georgia, you can add FSU when they're up. Tennessee, Miami and Oklahoma are worthy of some consideration, but OK and TN are basically Michigan with a worse recruiting footprint.
Rodriguez was a schmuck when it came to recruiting. He alienated instate coaches and targeted many marginal talents with character issues early in the process. My favorite was in 2010 when he recruited five 3 star receivers (four of whom were his first commits in the class!) and one offensive lineman. This isn't a case of hindsight, I wailed insufferably about this as it was happening, too. Despite his ineptitude at talent evaluation and roster management even he did alright until he was firmly on the hot seat.
"OK and TN are basically Michigan with a worse recruiting footprint. "
Tennessee maybe...Oklahoma's recruiting footprint has included all of Texas for decades. They get more talent from Texas than Michigan gets from Ohio or any other neighboring school gets from Georgia.

There was a like button for posts like these
They basically took 4 of the top 5 or 6 classes and called their coaches the best. Brilliant analysis.
I hate Meijer with a passion. I find him to be such a self loathing, sore loser with little to no class at all. Ill never forget after Lloyd's last game Meijer goes on his weekly radio hour and have Michigan no credit at all. He said Percy Harvin wasn't at 100% and that Tim Tebow had a "undisclosed" injury preventing him from being effective. He went on to spout some BS on how they beat themselves and they beat Michigan 9 out of 10 times and unfortunately this was the one time. After that I lost any respect I had for him.
Once Tebow leaves and he realizes he can't compete with Saban anymore so he cites health problems and more time with family as why he quit. Then instead of taking a year off he goes to espn and travels around doing games and getting an inside look at our program. Everyone and their mother knew he was taking the ohio job and now his whiny little ass is back. People give him so much respect and I understand his success at bgsu, Utah, and UF warrant it to some degree, but they act like he's the second coming of Christ or something. He goes unbeaten his first year at ohio and the media salivates his every move just like the dog with the bell.
I believe Hoke is trying to mold us into a mirror image of Bama and Stanford. If Hoke continues to bring in great talent we have a real shot to snuff him and ohio out and become the Bama of the north so to speak. Or I suppose you could also say the old Wolverines. I can hardly even watch "The Game" anymore bc I hate Meijer that much. I imagine with the call and text restriction rule eliminated from recruiting he will finally be on a level playing field.
Fuck you Meijer I will forever mis-spell your name and call your cheating ass team ohio.
There is god, there is family, and then there is MICHIGAN FOOTBALL
I do not think it means what you think it means.
Costco is way better than Meijer!
Who can hate purple cow ice cream and sandy the horse?
So hot. Milk was a bad choice.
Uh, had maybe one too many tonight? Why don't you go sleep this one off before you hurt somebody.
All that hate's gonna burn you up, kid.
"You will suffer humiliation when the team from my area defeats the team from your area." -- The Onion
If memory serves me correctly, didn't Mike Hart fumble twice at the goal line? Hart had the surest hands of any tailback in recent memory, and the game should've been a blow out win for us if this didn't happen. Meyer should be lucky to have even been in the game.
Take your weapon, strike me down with all your hatred and your journey towards the Dark Side will be complete. Your Hate has made you powerful.
All hail Hoke!
Meijer is the best place for you northern types to pick up Mrs. Renfro's salsa...they've got varieties there we don't even get in this part of the country. Another thing I like about visiting the in-laws in Dayton. And Tim Hortons, of course.
It would be kinda cool if Meyer left the SEC to get away from Alabama, and winds up facing a Michigan team that looks and plays like Alabama.
