Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.
Two big offers go out to 2013 receivers and a note on 2013 OT Laremy Tunsil
Hopefully Shane starts tweeting these top WRs, it would be nice to have a Julio Jones/AJ Green/Megatron type player to replace Megatron Jr.
Bring on Tunsil, despite this great 2012 O-line class I dont' feel like any fo these guys are left tackles
Good because we need right tackles (Shane is a lefty so assuming our stud tackles will flip flop sides).
Rivals has Foster listed as 6 3" 170?? That is a skinny 5 star.
He's also a high school junior, so I wouldn't worry about it.
Oh I'm not worried. That just tells me his skills must be that much better to still earn that 5 star status. Do want.
Not sure if this was mentioned, but Michigan offered Jason Hatcher, 4-star DE on Scout, and teammate of fellow 4-star WR James Quick.
Wow. That is as good a last name for that position as that (Pat?) Angerer guy a few years ago. IIRC he was an Iowa LB. I'm too lazy to look, so I'll probably be proven wrong...
Yes, backer at Iowa
Good article on Foster here. Seems to like Ohio and ND very early on according to the article, but I also get the impression he wants to be a complete person so academics and support system are important to him. Says he wants somewhere that feels like home. Since this is what all our recruits have said about Hoke's Michigan, I think the coaches can impress him and be there at the end.
has not been on our side much in the past, but it wins games. In a few years nobody will care ( least of all me ) that perhaps we were lucky at Notre Dame and the Sugar Bowl. There will be no asterisk next to our victory saying we were outgained and did not deserve to win. Certainly in many old OSU games we won the stat battle but lost the game. True luck is a chance occurance. Winners make it happen more frequently in their favor by some intangable factor that doesn't show in the stats. This team certainly had that factor.
that was to go on another thread and now I cannot find it ( major embarassment moment )
This is off the subject but I know you guys will know. What is AD Brandon's email address? I want to ask him to quit screwing around with the FB team's uniforms. Those black, skinny numbers looked like they were drawn on by a first grader. Thanks.
How many more times are you going to post this in threads?
The players picked them. They play on the team and you do not.
be a little more comfortable with a 5 star receiver for Shane.
