this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
Ty Isaac waiver?
Get ready for the snarky answer parade.
Ok I'll start. We all know Eskimoan, we just aren't telling you
Coach Hoke actually called me yesterday to let me know, in fact. I think Eskimoan is toward the end of the phone tree.
Nuss called me last night told me his secret plans for Ty
...any day now.
But yes, get ready for the snarky comments. Just like the Devin Gardner "did he get his redshirt?" questions or requests for the updates on Stonum's status.
I'm expecting the comments but after hearing about DGB I figured we should hear something soon
It was discussed in the DGB thread...
Nobody fucks with the Jesus, Dude.
but that would be in poor taste
As a Christian, I laughed my head of at this. Your taste isn't that bad. Jesus is more alive than the Roman Empire is nowadays anyway.
8 year olds dude.
Sometime this week, I'm sure.
Soon come man, soon come
You mean you didn't hear? Where have u been?
Dude lives in Alaska. News should be arriving via sled dog any day now...
I'm guessing the coaches and players already know the answer but didn't want to release the info yet.
Dude, haven't you figured it out? We all know. We all just swore and oath for the UM Ilumniati that we wouldn't tell you. Duh.
WOTS is that Hoke revealed at the UM Club of Ann Arbor luncheon this week that the waiver had been denied, and the appeal has been filed.
Disclaimer: I was not there, so take it fwiw.
Edit: Sam Webb has all but confirmed this on GBW.
I was at the luncheon, and yes this is what Hoke shared.
Hoke was on the radio yesterday and used the word "appeal"—seemed like a public confirmation that the original filing had been denied:
Deepest competition on your club: "The running back position. There's really competition daily there with Derrick Green and De'Veon Smith. ... Ty Isaac's a guy who is here in the program, we're waiting on an appeal for his waiver to see if he'll be eligible or not."
I'm disappointed in the low level of snark displayed so far.
They were leaving it up to Eskimoan123 to decide! And now he is telling us he himself doesn't know!
But I'm not telling YOU!
Unfortunately Mark Emmert just doesn't get paid enough to be expected to turn things like this around in a reasonable time frame.
This is why you sign up for 24/7, rivals and ESPN insider. This was posted weeks ago, but I was told not to share. They told me that Listerfiend, the mouth troll, would bite my tongue off if I told.
You must also have a pillow pants if you don't tell.
It's part of the ongoing "investigation" at Notre Dame, so we'll probably find out whenever that wraps up.
The NCAA released its decision..but the rest of the board didnt want to clutter up the msg board with this news. As you can see there was more important topics to post like posting fantasy football teams, a skydiving video, the 20th thread about it being last day for OT posts, a thread about who your favorite poster is, and probably a drinking thread. If the board quiets down from these important topics, someone will probably post a link to the Ty Isaac decision.
Whoever posted the above is spot on. If the posters of such topics know so much about Michigan athletics, college sports/politics that they criticize an individual seeking information about a situation that is potentially very relevant to Michigan on the field, I would think that there would be less posting about those topics cited by pearlw.
Let the entertainment continue!!!
Snarky answers aside, the latest rumor is that it was denied.
My understanding is that his mother can not fly so he left USC so his parents could visit and see him play??? He lives in Chicago, correct? A 3 1/2 hour drive is not excessive considering the size of states and how far many students drive to get to their state universities across the country. Not to mention UM students and Alums who regularly drive that route. Yes, there are closer schools, but the driving distance does not seem excessive to me(course I am not NCAA). Is the NCAA trying to limit him to specific schools or a reasonable weekly commute for his parents. Yes, of course I am biased, but it seems like a no brainer to me.
There's even MEGABUS as a last resort.
he would have to transfer to a school within a designated radius of his home to recieve the waiver. Michigan is significantly outside of that radius and thus he can't play, despite being significantly closer to his mother than he was at USC. It sucks, sure, but if we want the NCAA to remove subjectivity from its evaluations and be consistent, this is what consistency hopefully looks like.
Whether it's excessive or not is irrelevant. the rule states that the new school has to be within 100 miles from home (I believe that's the number...it may be even closer). Since they are in Chicago a number of schools fit that requirement, but AA is over 250 and therefore does not. It's pretty cut and dry really and while there's no reason not to appeal just in case, I wouldn't hold my breath. They're pretty black and white with this kind of stuff. 110 miles? Sure. 2.5x the rule? No way.
So we just have to hope that DG truly has gotten some speed back and is capabable of getting beyond the LOS in less than 3 seconds unlike last year.
It's a guideline. Well really it's not even a guideline, it's just sort of what they've done in the past more than half the time and have already said it won't be what they'll be doing next season. The NCAA can do whatever they wish with this and will. Just let us not give them some kind of cover that this is cut and dried - because it's not.
If you are going to assert you know the answer to the hows and whys of NCAA decisions, and play the rule card, I would think you would at least cite the "rule".
My educated guess is that you cannot, but that you gleaned this information from some sportswriter who is similarly clueless about the applicability, enforceabilility, and procedural nuances of the NCAA's hammer.
NCAA is not "black and white" with much. In fact, if you sent a black sheet of paper and white sheet of paper to 50 NCAA employees/independent contractors, you would likely get only 50% of them to agree on which sheet was black and which was white, and the half that was right would be owing to random chance.
I would think the intent of the rule, regulation, or whatever they are calling it today, MIGHT fit Isaac's situation, so it is far from black and white IMHO.
is this one of the greatest pic's i've ever seen..
Since this has been snarked to death, I'll drop a topic change..
Anyone else get their Tshirt and signed HTTV today?
Hold on - I'll ask my dog and get back with ya.
She is an all knowing Dachshund. I bet she heard weeks ago?
I have a dachshund who ate her own poop this morning (not a first) so I interpret that to mean no TA waiver, legal trouble for a former UM defensive player, and Dave Brandon approves a giant mobile helmet Mascot. 60% of the time it works every time.
Perhaps these episodes of pica are related to a recurring immune-mediated hemolytic anemia. Do you see any jaundice? A CBC will give you your answer. Feel free to read up on this condition at the non-fiction section of your favorite library.
on the decision. We aren't allowed to link Bleacher Report so it will not be posted on Mgoblog.
Actually it will be an mgoblog exclusive. Brian hammered out a deal with chat sports' Ace Williams. So long BB!
