Football Display Case
just what the Pistons need: a third string center. Joe Dumars was replaced by a mean ol' alien a few years back you guys.
this would be a close approximation of hypothetical graduation speech
no you guys they're just super pumped about COLLLLLLLLLLLLEGE
not a surprise
premature congrats. One thing we can be sure of: he'll take fewer asinine penalties than Abdelkader
Thanks to ugly transitions between Fulmer/Kiffin/Dooley/Davis, Tennessee is on the edge of APR penalties for football.
i approve of this message
strong indictment of AAU right heah
Glockner sides with justice
a good cause, and a good time
good job gents
"Jeff Withey shouldn't have called him Peter Dinklage, is all I'm saying."
this would be bad if it wasn't LIES
Drew Henson's career, or not quite career, or whatever.
“I’m more of a back-to-the-basket type of big man that rebounds a lot,” Swanigan said on Wednesday, describing his game. “I have a Zach Randolph type of game — that’s who I base my game off of. Being physical and playing with both hands on the rim.”
And a quint a day at Blimpy would work too....although I hope he'll be able to get a Blimpy!
Caught the end of first half and ND's back was getting the carries. Anyone have numbers for Green?
Can we haz Derrick Green?
2009 called. They want "can we haz" back.
he picked Miami, doesn't effect us, haha ND
Also, was that his dad with the Lions cap?
Also, also...ohio getting whooped by Illini in BBall
Sweet. Picks Miami over ND.
Was it just me or was his dad wearing a Detroit Lions winter hat?
3-3-5 til the day I die y'all
This halftime has made me very worrisome. Can anyone PLEASE reassure me that David Robinson's son is going to ND?!
Helmet to helmet...pretty dirty hit there....made no attempt to wrap up.
Strength equipment is expensive and guarantees you nothing. A strong will is free and can give you everything you want.
in this game last year? Anyone remember?

I wish Green was at least getting half the touches Bryant is.
Michigan on hopefully michigan tackle
Derrick fricken Green!!!!
I'm no coach but I don't see all the hype about Jaylon Smith. I've seen him miss on like 7 tackles so far.
Dude is huge and legit runs like a 4.5 or something. He's apparently a monster in 7-on-7 and can lock down WRs even though he's an LB. That said, he could be suffering from the "Oh crap, now I'm playing against people who can actually play" type of thing that most kids who dominate lesser competition suffer from.
running we need from Green in AA, nice sweep run
it was Jourdan Lewis who tackled him
Secret tort baby? Secret tort baby!
Wow! That D Green is good. Oh how I salivate about a potential commitment.
for a TD here please, he's earned the chance
Oh shocking, the NBC guys are talking about the speed on D for ND. I really should just mute this game...but it's more fun to complain!
ND has a TV deal with NBC.....what were u expecting.
Unfortunately I think Jaylon Smith is the best player in this game.
by the QB's in this senior class so far, I know it's tough in these games but I've seen QB's in the past look way better than this crop.
Yeah, there aren't a lot of quality quarterbacks in this class. I've been saying that since I watched the "elite" quarterbacks at The Opening. Browne is going to be good, Morris will get there eventually, and I like Brice Ramsey. I'm sure there will be some other guys to emerge in college, but it's a weak class.
Likewise with receivers. When the QBs actually do make good throws the WRs are dropping them. I bet there's been 10 drops between the Army & UA games.
FWIW, I was really impressed by Hackenberg yesterday. Great touch and accuracy.
Huh? Hackenberg looked bad as always.
OK. Agree to disagree. The Scout guys that were there seemed impressed by him as well... again, FWIW.
He was 4/16 for 34 yards, 0 touchdowns, 0 interceptions, and 2 sacks. I don't see how anyone could be impressed by that.
I don't think any of the quarterbacks in that game were impressive, but I'd take a few of the participants in that game over Hackenberg.
True, but he had a LOT of drops (I know... standard excuse for why one's favored QB doesn't have good stats). Most of the QBs were no where close to their intended receivers.
Some quotes from Scout.com
"Christian Hackenberg has been the best and most consistent quarterback on either team throughout the week" - Scout National Recruiting Analyst Brandon Huffman
Love when these guys don't pick Ohio.
"I get to go to lots of overseas places, like Canada." -Britney Spears
It was already expected that he wasn't going to go to OSU from inside reports. No shock here but Mitchell is expected to commit later today.
Hello Charles Woodson, now give me the ball on offense. - Brent Musburger
Can't blame him. If UL isn't on the upswing, OSU's chances are great, but I wouldn't turn down my hometown team either in this scenario.
how much inside you need to get, but last time I took a look at 11w they were at least 50-50.
Yeah, I think they originally had him at that between OSU and Lou but one of the writers said it was a no go a few days earlier. I think in the end he wanted to be at home and the win over Florida might have done that too. Moreover, with Teddy Bridgewater being able to throw a ball (we're not sure about Miller as a passer yet), Quick will be able to make some really good plays. Good pick up for the Cardinals!
11 Warriors is not the best place to look if you want an unbiased opinion.
There are still people here who think that Josh Garnett is going to pick Michigan.
People more inside than 11 Warriors expected Quick to pick Louisville.
The staff at 11w expected Quick to go to UL. Anything in the forums is inherently biased fanhood, no harm there.
It was more like cautious optimism, but most people weren't really buying the 50/50 thing. I actually think Shelton Gibson is better as a deep threat, because he's a more physical receiver with comparable speed.
Can we count this as a victory?
Louisville is a better fit for you and U-M
Quick to Louisville
Practice makes perfect. Unless you're the Buckeyes. Then you have to cheat.
Quick going to play for Strong. heh huh
The only thing that will make me happy here is if MM commits somewhere other than OSU
by Fuller on that PI
How is that a PI? He had better position than the WR.

After taking a quick look at the link Magnus put up from previous UM commits at this game from the past 5 years, I'm wondering what's all the fuss about?
Kyle Kalis, OL - Lakewood, OH
Royce Jenkins-Stone, LB - Detroit, MI
Erik Magnuson, OL - Carlsbad, CA
Ondre Pipkins, DT - Kansas City, MO
James Ross, LB - Orchard Lake, MI
Blake Countess, CB - Olney, MD
Matt Wile, K - San Diego, CA
Cullen Christian, CB - Pittsburgh, PA
Will Hagerup, P - Whitefish Bay, WI
William Campbell, DT - Detroit, MI
Jeremy Gallon, WR - Apopka, FL
Brendan Gibbons, K - West Palm Beach, FL
Anthony Lalota, DE - Princeton, NJ
Je'Ron Stokes, WR - Pittsburgh, PA
Justin Turner, CB - Massillon, OH
Boubacar Cissoko, CB - Detroit, MI
Sam McGuffie, RB - Houston, TX
Brandon Smith, S - New Brunswick, NJ
How many of those guys have actually gone on to be what we would consider quality players ala all-conference types? It's too early to judge last year's group. Countess looks like he's got the potential. Wile, Hagerup, BWC, Gallon, and Gibbons have been solid contribtors, but nothing to get too excited about. Should we really be excited about any of these guys and expect them to be all-conference types? Not to say we shouldn't, but just a question if this is all hype or if it's a good indicator of who will be good in college.
Maybe it's just an unfortunate coincidence, but I feel like Michigan has had an uncharacteristic lack of success with its recent Army Bowl participants. The players who played for Rich Rodriguez generally didn't do well. Before that things were pretty good, and the jury's still out on the Hoke recruits who participated.
