Hopefully, things go well and we can land him the second time around.
Ty Isaac Visiting Tomorrow
Hopefully he signs with Michigan and fills the RB slot that seems to be trending quite poorly for 2015 RBs. Would give them two juniors in Green-Smith and a RS soph Issac by the time he hits the field in 2015. That RB depth isn't too shabby.
He was looking pretty impressive before the leg injury.
Yeah, those two carries against central for 9 yards were uber impressive..
Sorry to be a dick. But, yeahhhh.
Speaking of impressive, you're starting to sound a lot like me, Frito Bandito...
He undersold that comment perfectly.
He went forward. Last year. Unfortunately, in retrospect, that was kind of impressive.
I hate positive yardage...
As easy as it is for you to cite lack of statistics for reasons of him not necessarily being the NO 1 back, you can also say that there is reason to believe based on those carries he would've played.
It is unlikely that DJ will end up at the top of the depth chart at tailback. Nothing against the kid, but from my understanding of the depth chart and the assorted comings-and-goings, it is unlikely.
really ? johnson looks like an old school badass that we need. Barring that injury itd have been HIM this year getting most of the carries
Go Blue, Ty!
I don't care until he says he is coming to Michigan to play football.
Then I'd recommend that you get your information from newspapers rather than message boards.
You, sir, are in the business of vicious comebacks
And business is pretty good
a rapist's wit.
Not to be that guy, but it sure seems that saying you are going to do something in recruiting and actually doing said thing are often two very different things.
After reading about Weber and with Harris seemly drifting further away, I want this guy pretty bad. Hopefully he goes blue!
I agree. Especially if he has to take a redshirt year, that puts him a year behind Green and Smith and only 1 year ahead of Harris/Weber. Then for 2016, hopefully recruiting is in a better place and Hoke/company snags a top-flight RB--maybe not of Harris's caliber but certainly on Weber's level.
better place? were talking about the top rbs in the country. Hoke already snagged Green. when we miss out on the top national players then it is realistic. Its the modern media coverage that gives this perception that were missing out...but it seems to me recruiting, save the Qb spot, is on par with the cArr years
Go Hoke and Nuss!! I feel confident with the ability of these two to sell what UM has to offer so if he doesn't end up here in the end it won't be because they failed to sell him on the strong points of the school.
Out of curisoity has anyone heard if Issac's parents were with him during the Illinois visit? Maybe its just coincidence but with Weber releasing his top 3 and UM out of it and Issac coming to campus w/ parents... Maybe He'll pull the trigger.
Weren't were his very close second choice to USC?
If he commits, what are the odd/schances that he can play this fall ? Im referring to having to sit a year.
Michigan was seemingly No. 2.
He'll presumably have to sit. Michigan is too far away for him to qualify for a hardship waiver.
And sitting would be fine for Michigan, I'd imagine. It would make him the de facto RB in the 2014 class (when we went after guys like Ballage but didn't sign anyone). He'd likely be the only RB with sophomore eligibility in 2015.
I think if Ty is willing to sit out a year, Michigan will land him. The million dollar question is, is he willing to sit out a year?
He doesn't really have a choice unless he goes to NW.
He might have to anyway. It's not up to him. It's up to the NCAA.
It is up to him. If he goes to a school within the hardship radius, he can play this season. If not, he sits.
Lets seal the deal boys! If we can land him and get him that waiver we could kill are running back issues. would he be a redshirt frosh or a sophmore?
Ty is a year ahead in the weight room and has game experience. He is a big power back with speed and he would at minimum be as good as Weber and Harris out of the gate. Harris to me still looks like the best prospect overall. Landing Ty would alleviate all worries about the former two though!
He may even be an upgrade to what we already have.
When I heard it, I wasn't angry; I knew Isaac, I knew he was head-strong, striding long, moving like Marcus Allen. So when he turned up at USC, I let it go. And I said to myself, this is the recruiting business we've chosen; I didn't ask who gave the verbal, because it had nothing to do with recruiting business!
Maybe he can live out his days in Israel as a retired Jew on a pension?
I'm going in to take a nap. When I wake, if the Hello post is on the tablet, I'll know I have a RB. If it isn't, I'll know I don't.
Guessing I missed a reference here... but Ty Isaac is visiting tomorrow.
That's gonna be a long nap...
I as well missed it.
EDIT: I just figured out that those are Godfather references?? I’ve haven’t seen any of those movies yet.
YET? Get your priorities straight, son.
"When I heard it, I wasn't angry; I knew Moe, I knew he was head-strong, talking loud, saying stupid things. So when he turned up dead, I let it go. And I said to myself, this is the business we've chosen; I didn't ask who gave the order, because it had nothing to do with business."
"I'm going in to take a nap. When I wake, if the money's on the table, I'll know I have a partner. If it isn't, I'll know I don't."
Clearly I need to re-visit the trilogy. Er... parts I and II at least.
We just make him an offer he can't refuse.
The High Court in Israel turned down his request to live there as a returned Jew.
he was running molasses into Canada with Hoke's dad!!!!
and they made a fortune.
A very nice bit of commentary from Peggy Noonan published on PBS' American Experience website once on this very speech by actor Lee Strasberg, a.k.a. Hyman Roth:
Scroll down a few paragraphs. Definitely worth a read for any fans of the film.
We're reading about our recruiting hopes and dreams, and we get an education.
Excellent read even if you've never seen the film.
Will Brian include him in the 27 tickets to 2015?
I was pretty upset the first time around when he didn't choose Michigan. Now, after seeing his 6 YPC average as a freshman, it would hurt even more if he commits elsewhere.
need a running back
Moar wins an less 7NA.
Don't Break My Heart from UB40 will be in my earphones. Round 2.
Don't get too excited. Allen Trieu said today that he still believes Isaac is going to end up at Illinois :(
Can we have nice things?
Only if you aren't a Michigan fan.
This might have been explained in the thread that announced his intention to transfer from USC back to a school closer to his home state of Illinois, and if so, I missed it and apologize for repetitive information. Supposedly, the primary reason this is happening - NBC story here - is that his mother has some complications as a result of surgery to attempt to correct a hearing problem. The story also mentions that he might go for a waiver so he can play right away.
Maybe fans will put all the whining and feeling sorry for themselves behind them. This is going to be a lot better season then most are predicting, so it seem motherf***ers would like to sit back and enjoy the ride.
agreed. I wanna take the over on 7.5 wins but dont know the best way to do it
Before, I did some googling and didn't find it right away. If you learn how to do it, please let us know cause I'll put money on that!
"Ty Isaac" just sounds like a Michigan tailback name.
What about Ty Issac?
This is how I see the Ty Issac official visit playing out tomorrow
i know this isnt the thread but according to touch the banner the east st.louis guys were supposed to be in town this weekend, did they nake it in and if so how did it go i would love to get beckner
Spelling people, it got us with "American" so remember the Isaac mnemonic: IsAAc for Ann Arbor.
Or All American!
Another interesting not about Ty Isaac, no other visits planned yet, but Ohio State requested permission to contact him according to his mom
— Tom VanHaaren (@TomVH) June 2, 2014
That will never happen, because Hoke is an excellent recruiter!
I swear to God if they "Chad Lindsay" him from us I'll... *bites fist in anger*
Obviously Ty has potential and will be a great pickup for whoever lands him. The fact of the matter is that part of ohio's recruiting strategy is to at the very least inquire about every potential big name that plans on considering michigan. They currently have the head up on the field (at least on O) and they will make that pitch to any big name.
I am very interested in hearing how this went today. I have had enough with the not-so-good news on the RB Recruiting front. This would be a big. I have a good feeling about this one!
Do we really have a legitimate shot with Isaac? I thought he got a family hardship deferment on his transfer, which means he doesn't have to sit out a season, but only if he goes to a school less than 100 miles from home.
yes we do. He is visiting, thus their is a legit shot. will go on a limb and say we have a better than 50% chance.
