The nutty Michigan coverage isn't so much about Harbaugh as it is a signal to the Big Ten that Fox wants to party.
Ohio spreading Hoke NFL rumors
I'm going to go ahead and call BS on this.
Is he getting Brady and Jon confused?
I think it's Peppers. He says it did not originate with negative recruiting rather his own research. I'm obviously skeptical that anyone's own research would lead them to conclude that Hoke has an NFL future. I think he simply knows better than to look a gift horse in the mouth. The coach who told him this lie offered him a scholarship and for that reason he'll keep his name out of the press.
Sounds like negative recruiting.
Isn't chasports.com Ace Williams? I refuse to click the link and see.
This is through rivals I think. But I linked an actual article you could read.
My point is that Ace Williams trolls for clicks, so linking to him or clicking on those links just feeds the troll. I refused to feed the troll any more than you already had.
Sorry I didn't know I usually just look at 247 insider stuff. I changed it for all of you.
Damn you, Urban Meyer speading lies again.
Definitely bs. I Love Brady but I think the nfl would eat him alive.
You really think that? I suppose the point is moot. His heart stays in Ann Arbor no matter where he travels.
His brother Jon seems to be thriving in the NFL. Don't know why you think Brady would get eaten alive.
Is a defensive backs coach. When people say that a coach is going to make the jump to the pros from a major school it is implied that they will be going to be head coaching at the next level. There is a huge difference between being an NFL head coach and defensive backs coach.
Im not knocking brady, just that hes the ultimate players coach and those money hungry players would walk all over him. They're playing for themselves and not a higher institution or franchise.
Good point. Mattison had success in the NFL, but along the same lines wasn't fulfilled by professional coaching, as he was recruiting/moulding college talent
Chatsports? Isn't that Ace William's site?
Unless we're all being duped by Hoke...I'm chalking this one up to negative recruiting.
I think it'd just be a shame if info came out that URBAN MEYER allegedly KILLED 5 HOOKERS WITH CRAIG JAMES.
With Carr it was Alzheimer's, with Hoke it's the NFL. Other schools love making crap up about our coach.
Not Alzeimer's or MS, but Parkinson's.
You're right. By bad.
I thought it was Parkinson's.
you aren't fooling me RDT..errr Section 1
If he actually heard this, there's probably only one person it would come from, and I think you know who that is.
....from a college buddy whose brother-in-law heard from a recently fired MAC assistant coach that Urban Meyer was awash in NFL offers. And I believe it! Because I'm an credulous guy!
Now...let's everyone go out and spread this quite reliable word.
i heard the same exact thing and i live all the way out in Hawaii!
must be true: urban meyer to go pro this coming season. it's a fact.
Um, he's sick. My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw Urban pass out at 31 Flavors last night. I guess it's pretty serious.
Thank you, Simone.
Chatsports. This is just negative recruiting at play.
Don't read that website!!! And don't post links to it, either. Any publicity just encourages BS like what gets posted there.
Per above it is a rivals article.
Is your "in-state preview of 2014 recruiting" the long post you were working on?
Yes, it was.
This is one large poop sandwich of a thread.
Is it time to raise the point limit on starting threads yet?
This is from Rivals. Peppers came out and claimed that no one is negative recruiting but it's pretty much bullshit because Urban has a track record of pulling shit like this with recruits. Unfortunately, it seems to have worked with Jabril.
Urban is more likely to retire twice from "health" problems in the next 5 years than Hoke taking an NFL job.
I heard that Urban Meyer once quit his football team because he had heart problems and then went back to coaching a year later.
Yes but it has been documented that Hoke is not very satisfied with landing the Michigan job. He said he would have crawled to Ann Arbor for the job. I only feel comfortable with a coach who would have done the crabwalk backwards all the way.
Is this be one of the recruiting tips that Meyer gives to lowly Big Ten coaches . . . make bad shit up about the other coaches?
I heard that Meyer is going to go to prison for sexual harrassment.
Hey, that's pretty easy. I think Jerry Kill should try that.
Negative recruiting is one thing when you point out something actually negative about something (i.e. "Hey recruit X, did you know Lane Kiffin is a huge douchebag?"). But I don't understand what there is to gain by outright lying. Can't Hoke just tell Peppers that this is all BS, and then the guy spreading lies will have his credibility shot and look like a major asshole? The only way this works is if somehow Hoke has zero contact with Peppers between now and signing day...
This is what got Lawrence Marshall to commit to OSU—Urban told him that Brady was going to become HC of the Lions.
If Jabrill Peppers actually believed the Hoke-maybe-to-NFL rumors, he's not an overly bright young man. Out of all the coaches at the D1 level in college ball, Brady Hoke is among the least likely to go to the NFL at this point in his career.
Did I miss something? Was that actually reported (about Lawrence Marshall)?
but it's easy to speculate—Marshall was a bit of a surprise commit to OSU, and if we're now hearing that OSU might be the source of the Hoke-to-NFL baloney, nothing would surprise me.
This doesn't help Meyer at all IMHO, if it's true that his staff is the source. All he's doing is putting an extra-large bullseye on his back for the other conference coaches.
