Football Display Case
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
premature congrats. One thing we can be sure of: he'll take fewer asinine penalties than Abdelkader
Thanks to ugly transitions between Fulmer/Kiffin/Dooley/Davis, Tennessee is on the edge of APR penalties for football.
i approve of this message
No signatures, please.
Confirmed? Confirmed?....NOTHING IS CONFIRMED TILL WE DECIDED IT IS.
Or until he signs
Was it confirmed when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?
That article is from yesterday, so nothing too new. But I still think Hoke has a chance to get Frost to rethink his decision. Being a Michigan fan all his life has to count for something, doesn't it? Of course he could have just said that and not meant it.

Yesterday's news....Nothing is official until he signs on that line....Michigan coaches r coming to see him this week so hopefully they can sway him!
he has already had his in home and has taken his official visit. If they want to commit a major violation while on probation that is up to them.
On the brightside maybe this gets Lucien back into the fold.
Chaos is found in greatest abundance wherever order is being sought. It always defeats order because it is better organized.
Why would this get Lucien in the fold? We want him for DB, he wants to be a WR, not sure how Frost affects that in any way...
I agree. It's not like we said - Lucien we like you at WR, we just don't have room. But we didn't say that.
He may be thinking that if we add Frost that it will take a defensive position and open things up for Lucien to come back on offense...it makes zero sense...since Lucien would be a DB and Frost a LB but I'll go with it on this ULTRA positive Wednesday.
What I was thinking is that the coaches were confident on Frost wanting to come to Mich, Frost only want Mich if he could try WR first. They prioritized Frost over Lucien, but wanted to cover their bases and offered Lucien on D. With Frost confirmed gone, maybe they swing their opinions a bit..........
It's an admitted stretch, but it's the only way I can explain the whole Lucien scenario without wanting to break out my Scotch.
Break out the scotch my friend. Break out the scotch....
Will do. It's my last bottle of Blue though, so hopefully my reluctance to break it ou is understandable.
ohh now I see...
...makes perfect sense...
You win, that was good.
I will now go drink a glass of scotch in your honor even though I think it taste like wood chips and asshole.
for Hoke and GM to try and recruit him back here. If he really wanted to play WR though I doubt we would have any chance at all.
After the buyout I heard they are looking to get back to their roots. They have good national recognition as well which could really help with recruitng. Plus...FREE CARS!
Seriously? He means Gary Moeller.
I thought he was saying Gay Male
like in those personal ads
GM seeking BBBM for S&M and possibly RP.
I get to be the Butler this time!
I believe that if you replied to this ad you would have to be the Butt-ler...you know what I'm saying.
C'mon?! It obviously stands for GENERAL MANAGER.
I think one newly hired DC may have something to say about this.
I hope his Dad enjoys all that money, can't wait for my kid to go to Auburn, Daddy's gonna get a new car!
You know, Dude, I myself dabbled in pacifism once. Not in 'Nam of course.
Thanks for the old news, but its not over until National Signing Day. Before you post it tomorrow, we just hired Greg Mattison the Baltimore Ravens Defensive Coordinator.
I am willing to bet that Kris Frost has heard of the hire.
Mattison is also going straight to the recruiting trail instead of heading to Ann Arbor, per Sam Webb.
All hail Hoke!
Nothing is confirmed util that LOI is faxed.
Honest question: does Mattison recruit well? I know he is a great DC and teacher of defense, but he looks to be quite old and older guys seem to be less interested in recruiting. Also, is he bringing in his own position coaches? Are they young and heavy into recruiting? I feel like we need to know these things before we get super excited about anything yet.
or uh, Duder, or El Duderino if you're not into the whole brevity thing.
Yeah, I wouldn't expect you to get excited about any of this anyway.
I mean look at Joe "Weekend at Bernies" Paterno they strap the wireless radio headset on him and make him look alive and people just want to go there. Hopefully his name and what he's done will get Def. recruits high on michigan again.
He enjoys recruiting, he loves Ann Arbor and UM. He's passionate about bringing kids into the program. We will see better recruiting results on the DL and LB positions without a doubt.
I can haz safety?
Someone can confirm this as well. I heard on Sam Webb podcast that Mattison likes to recruit and is a great recruiter. This may explain why his resume is mainly in college. He was unavailable to be interviewed because he is already on the road recrutiing.
I hope Countess and Cooper.
HD, come back. As a RR supporter, and one that likes Hoke, we need you to come back. Supporting Hoke is not turning on RR. I will support RR wherever he goes.
I have read that he is a good recruiter but that came from former players.
Dude, I personally have enjoyed your rants the last week or so. I am a spread guy and a RR guy and have felt pretty shitty the whole way this thing has gone down. I think a few too many people have the "Hoke" colored glasses on and can't see how much better of a position we would be in currently with RR still in the fold.
I do think GM is a great hire but I still have reservations at our staffs age and our new offense...but all we can do is hope for the best.
Also I am finding NAIA team to root for to help pass the time durring the transition period.
GO Trine University Thunder!
Mattison will arrive in Ann Arbor on Thursday and said he is ready to start recruiting with the beginning of the national signing period on Feb. 2. Michigan has 10 commitments and will host on-campus visits this weekend after canceling the last two.
"He's one of the best recruiters out there — he's a helluva recruiter," Irons said. "I'd put him in anybody's house and he'll sell them on Michigan and will be genuine about it."
Despite being out of college coaching the last three seasons, Mattison said he doesn't believe he's lost his skill as a recruiter.
"Don't worry about me recruiting," Mattison said with a laugh. "Recruiting is all about where you're at. If you really believe in the school you're at … it's easy to sell a place like Michigan."
Is he really a "great" dc? His resume is pretty decent but "great" might be a bit of a stretch.
Oh how I hate ohio state...
Give me some stats? Teams records? Defense rank? Pretty decent is a loose term and great is thrown around way too much.
Someone has done this. Early in his career his defenses were in the 40-50 national rank, then vastly improved during his time in Florida and Baltimore. I don't see the point in re-posting research that has be done and you can find if you are interested
I wonder what Auburn is paying him....err his dad I mean.
Which guys are going to be among the 15 who get cut to trim the team from the 100 they sign up to the 85 they are allowed to play?
This is a question any guy joining an SEC team needs to think about.
She is a very smart girl. She knows exactly how to fill out a dress.
