He should walk on. I bet he'd get a full ride eventually.
Iowa pulls offer to Chelsea's Berkley Edwards
Yeah. I'd love to see this kid at Michigan.
Because he's the brother of a former stand-out player.
Like Norfleet but faster. And then we could have a 'BerkleyFest' against MSU to look forward to. Obvs
yeah, but he has a skill set that is in high enough demand that he's unlikely to want to walk on. i'm sure he's prideful and thinks he's deserving of a scholarship somewhere. he probably would be more likelty to take it than walk on. i also suspect that as february nears and teams know which prospects they're really in on, other schools will offer berkley.
He should go to Minnesota, where he'll actually have a chance to start.
If he's good enough to start at Minnesota, he's good enough to at least play at Michigan, and it's probably more meaningful to him to attend the school where his father and brother starred.
We don't need guys who can "play" at Michigan. We need a dynamic running back and dynamic players. He's not a dynamic player.
But, Jerry Kill is a manipulator and verbally abusive.
Of course he will get a full ride. That comes with the number 1 jersey, right?
We'll see what Braylon says about giving it to a non-WR now (assuming he sticks at RB and doesnt transition to the ninja slot WR role)
Minnie did have a pretty epic "Open Gandam Style" stadium routine....
Oppa Gangnam Style? No idea what Open Gandam Style would mean.
That's funny. Because I have no idea what Oppa Gangnam Style means.
...they both are Korean (roughly translated) for "Who Let the Dogs Out?"
It's long past time that Who Let the Dogs Out made a comeback. Who is the right band to cover that classic?
Don't you mean they're both Korean for "Macarena?"
This is still not helpful.
As Mambo No. 5, Who Let the Dogs Out, the Macarena, etc...semi-catchy song (in this case, kind of hilarious video) that hits the tipping point and goes viral. Though I admit that Macarena came out before videos really went "viral" on the internet. But same idea. Maybe throw "Cotton Eyed Joe" in there as well.
Although at least Gangnam Style came from another country, unlike some of the others on the list.
but no "New Age Girl"? She don't eat meat but she sure likes the bone!
The background was pretty helpful.
Loosely translated, it means "I have Gangnam style." Gangnam is supposed to be a very wealthy and high class neighborhood.
I'd just go with Minnie at this point. Cal is likely to be a tire fire for a while yet, and Iowa is no place for a running back concerned about his health. Minnie at least is finally a program on the way up.
Not if you ask AJ Barker...
Minnesota is where other tire fires go to learn how to become more tire fiery.
More and more and more tire fiery:
What could possibly go wrong?
Definitely. Cal is a nicer landing spot than 90% of the schools out there, if you are looking beyond football.
Ugh. What we need is more involvement with that family.
-Braylon's career mission to make as large an embarassment of himself as he possibly can, by displaying the most amount of mouthiness combined with the least amount of actual production possible.
-Father and Son's public hissy-fit when Rich Rod dared to suggest that someone other than a WR might get #1.
-Their repeated radio-calls to WTKA to complain about Rich Rod as a result.
-The way their loyalty was so easily bought the moment Rich gave into them.
-Their public championing of Berkley to get an offer, suggesting that not doing so would be an act of disloyalty on Michigan's part.
If I never hear a word from Braylon or Stan Edwards again, that would be peachy.
We have a redshirt freshman Hayes and a true freshman Norfleet to fill those scatback roles. We don't need a stable full of backs like that when Hoke/Borges clearly want to put bruisers on the field.
who knows, maybe he is waiting it out till the end and if Michigan has 1 left....
how many running backs we got offers to
I know were waiting on Green but if he don't come than what
The we still don't offer Berkley Edwards.
Then we offer a marginal D or O lineman
Godwin Igwebuike seems to be higher on the list than Edwards.
Also, the coaches have supposedly told the Edwards family that they don't really foresee him getting recruited by Michigan. They've basically said thanks, but no thanks.
a strong, fast North/South runner. I think he could fit in here. I hope the coaching staff at least tries to get him to walk on here.
I really doubt he's going to walk on at Michigan when he has other BCS conference offers.
Depends on whether money is an issue and whether or not he can stay humble about a situation. My guess is no on the first part. I don't know the kid, so I can't speak to the second.
Despite being slightly famous, I don't know that Stan Edwards and Co. would want to spend the money it takes to attend Michigan without a scholarship. That's a large chunk of change for anyone, especially when he has an option to go somewhere else for free.
Ya, but his brother pays a lot of money for scholarships and I think he would fork it out. He's rich ya know.
This is great news for him. Imagine, he could have ended up playing runningback at Iowa. That is not a good career move.
Good point--what do you think Berkley's MGoBlog handle is?
Northfleet 2.0. He's got like a zilly number of points. Real active.
AIRBHG: "I have pulled your offer. Pray I do not pull anything further."
"AIRBHG bless your ACL"
only a three star coming out of high school, maybe Berkely will be the same? It's all a random walk anyway. Having him be a preferred walk on would be a great idea. . . if Stan and Braylon find it palatable.
So Berkley could play at Cal-Berkeley?
A running back committing to Iowa is one brave soul.
I know that some regard the family thing as a big problem, but I'd still like to see him in a winged helmet.
I love all the posters saying sign him even though the coaches -- the ones who actually have seen and analyzed him -- think otherwise. Smart.
Who knows if he could blossom...but we do have quite a large group of running backs right now.
Fitz got hurt and others could as well. I say bring him on, never know.
You could say that about any position. There are still only 85 scholarships, no matter how many backups you want to bring in "just in case."
I was speaking in regards to walking on. No scholarship needed.
OK well obviously. I'm sure the coaches would take any kid with D1 offers as a walk-on. Not exactly going out on a limb with that one.
Cal offers a first-class education that rivals Michigan and in some eyes surpassess it. Given that a guy in this scholly position is relatively unlikely to have a long lucrative pro career (note I say "likely" here, so don't say "not necessarily" in return), so he should definitely be leaning on the quality of his education in this case.
AIRBHG was salivating at the thought of working his evil magic on Berkley, he should be thankful that Iowa pulled his offer before AIRBGH pulled his ACL apart...
