Mount St. Mary's hired a private equity CEO to be their president. You'll never guess what happened next.
Day after mine too!
and Byron Leftwich...
IDK Byron Leftwich I'd rather associate myself with David Grohl and Jason Bateman on that list
Thanks for the update Tom...Even with all the DB's we have in this class I really like Knight's film, the kid can hit like a ton of bricks. Here's hoping for a good visit this weekend...
Despite what I said, I still think we have a good shot, if this visit goes well.
then I imagine the visit will go pretty well.
Skyline Chili = Mother's Milk
Thanks man, I was a little hesitant to add the photo since they are out of Ohio but I figure Cincinnati doesn't really count, plus the stuff is flippin amazing. I live in West Michigan and they sell the canned chili in the stores now, making homemade three way all the time...
you'll be negbanged into oblivion.
cheers to the Skyline, i'm on the 5 way homemade,
canned Skyline delivered. Mich fan born in Ohio...
Shout out to Tony's as well.
Not a mass chili producer, but a good Toledo institution.
Oh yes they are. You can find Packo's chili in stores in California if you look.
For those of you unfamiliar, your job is as follows:
Go to Toledo, OH, with intent to see one of the following: One Toledo Mudhens game, One U of Toledo Rockets Football or Basketball game, OR a trip through the Toledo Zoo or the Toledo Museum of Art.
While in Toledo, visit one of the following:
Original Packo's East of the River
Packo's at the Park by 5/3rd field
Packo's Cafe off US 23
Order the following:
1/2 Order Fried Pickles and Peppers for an appetizer (for one, full order for 2)
#2 combo (or the double dog for MOAD combo if you're hungrier), with dumplings and gravy.
While there, read the signed buns.
they are all owned by ANY real Detroit Coney!
My buddy is from Cincy and he absolutely loves Skyline. Everytime his friends come up from Cincy he makes them bring Skyline haha.
"Making homemade three way all the time"......TWSS!
My name is Kevin and I live in Cincinnati! I feel like you're me!
Of the group of corners still uncommitted and being recruited (Knight, Grimes and others) any idea on the order which the staff would rank them?
Grimes is #1 because he's the only corner we've offered who's uncommitted.
Knight is a safety.
Is he being recruited as a safety? He is listed as both on the intertubes.
What a sweet name, Knight, I would love to see him robing WR's all day!
Edit: "Robbing" Sorry about that everyone
Hm...I wonder what party they'll be at friday night
David Brandon, can you please give this kid a call and reassure him that Rodriguez will have a long and successful future here. Thanks in advance!
Dave Brandon got the banhammer...
Oh...you meant THE Dave Brandon. Never mind.
Yeah...I guess I just figured the "other" David Brandon had already made about 6 new accounts and that it was old news. My mistake.
that was a quick banhammer on davebrandon.
I missed the lead-up on him.
Seemed rather mcfarlinesque from what I saw
Sorry Tom, I'm not entirely clear - does "concern about Rich Rodriguez and his job security" mean concerns about both RichRod, as well as his job security? Or just RichRod's job security?
Sorry, I should have worded that differently. He's just concerned with Rich Rod's job security.
When you say that you "should have worded that differently", do you mean you should have used a synonym for the word "that" or does "that" refer to your original statement?
You have addressed one of the many questions I had from that completely vague post Tom made.
Now, I have my OWN question: Tom, when you say Rich Rodriguez's "job secruity"--I didn't know Rich Rodriguez was working in security.
My question is: Security as in financial stuff? Or security as in Rodriguez is one of those meanies who puts the boot on a cute coed's car after she racks up thousands of dollars in unpaid parking tickets?
the bouncer at the bar last night did look a bit like Rodriguez. I didn't see Pryor inside trying to rob and murder, so he must have been doing a good job as security.
If I had the choice I would take Parker over the other two but need all three! Depth is what we need most.
Perhaps RichRod should just put together a DVD of Tommy Amaker's years of success at Michigan and get an intro completed by David Brandon and Mary Sue Coleman welcoming new recruits to Michigan.
Rashad Knight watches that thing and he would be asking RichRod about graduate assistant potentials.
Make sure you also ask Greg Schiano what he'll do when JoePa retires, which could be any time, and Penn State comes calling for him to be their next head coach...........
Everybody has been retiring Joe Paterno for 20 years now.
I'm actually thinking Schiano has his eyes on how Randy Shannon will do over the next year or so.
Somebody please get Rashad laid. If we closed with Baxter, Knight, and Parker (along with a couple of other SNAKE OIL surprises like Michael Taylor), I would be pretty confident this would be a huge year. I may be delusional, but I think this could be one of the bigger impact classes Michigan has had in a decade as the nucleus should be a bit more settled and could be complemented by new talent at key skill positions (WR, LB, CB/S).
has superior tradition, a higher profile, better academics, and equal or better coaching to both Rutgers and Ole Miss. If the kid just wants to go where he can get laid, what's our advantage?
nice Glengarry Glenross reference.
"You can't close the leads you're given, you can't close shit, you are shit! Hit the bricks pal and beat it cause you are going out!"
(Said to Hopson before his departure re: recruiting?)
... isn't Grimes rumored to be considering Ol' Miss now too? If so, I wonder how much those coaches down there are doing the "RichRod is gone after next year" negative recruiting.
I have a feeling the "factioning" is hurting recruiting, but I hope the kid jumps on board for what will hopefully be a great year.
Can he play corner? or strictly safety?
He is being recruited by Michigan to play safety. I don't think he'd play corner unless absolutely necessary.
EDIT: Oops, I see Magnus already answered you...he and his "non-working" reply button!
I hope Rashad comes to AA. This is the kid i've been high for quite sometime and i'm glad he is finally coming up for a visit. Rashad can hit and is very good athlete, Rich needs to lock him down.
Knight is being recruited as a safety, but he does have the ability to play corner if necessary.
Stop picking on me!
It makes me feel better about myself.
