This def gives him a small FX advantage on his vertical. This coming from a finance guy with a plant in CAN.

Those guys were watching and pointing at the girls but didnot have the balls to talk to them. So they had their boy who they think can't hear no because his status on the team go up for them. Sure he said something really appropriate to her for her to act that way. So I wouldn't say she started it. They weren't messing with the group of guys, the guys were hounding them.

And then.....another 5 star?!?

|2 years 22 weeks ago||Dackich coached Donnal in AAU||
This is now 2 guys from the AAU team that he coached. I'm sure the fact that he has played and is buddies with Donnal has somthing to do with him committing. Either way Dackich now has 2 guys at UM.

It's about to get crazy!
|2 years 37 weeks ago||What about the blocking call on Stauskas?||
He appeared to draw a charge from Thomas a few plays earlier?
I don't always agree with the calls, but as long as they appear to be called consistently I am ok with it. What bugs me is when the plays look similar and one is a charge and one is a block.
|2 years 37 weeks ago||I was thinking this during the game||
During the early stages of the game it appeared that Stauskas drew a charge from Thomas (Kellogg also said it looked like a charge during the broadcast). It was called a bloking foul crowd went nuts and OSU got a 3 point play.
Not long after this it appeared that Thomas was sliding under one of our players and a fould was called. This was more clear cut than the first call mentioned above so I was sure it would be a blocking foul. It was instead called a charge (once again Kellogg said during the broadcast that he thought this was a bad call). Another 3 point swing.
This scenario could have easily (and according to the announcers) ended with us up 6 more points and Thomas out of the game.
These 50/50 calls (charges and blocking fouls) seem to be harder to call and the refs like to dramatically call them.
I wonder if you look at just the 50/50 calls and not all fouls if they even more favor the home team?
|2 years 38 weeks ago||How do I read the KenPom rankings?||
How do you read the Ken Pom Rankings? With Sarigin Ratings you take the rating for the two teams and adjust for where the game is played. I looked at the Ken Pom ratings and am not seeing how this works. Thanks.
|2 years 38 weeks ago||Who do our QBs work with in the offseason?||
I was looking through some pictures of George Whitfield (the QB coaching guru) and saw pics of lots of current college QB's (Braxton Miller, Logan Thomas). So some of these guys are traveling out to San Diego to train with him. Any idea what our guys are doing in the offseason? Curious how much imporvement DG will make between now and next season.
|2 years 38 weeks ago||He has been all ND since day 1||
His little brother might be the best of them all. Wonder what side of the family rivalry he will end up choosing one day.

Urban to ND.
|2 years 38 weeks ago||Do you feel bad for guys that||
Just curious do you guys feel bad for the guys that get screwed over by these shady tactics? Or that's what you get you should have known?
|2 years 38 weeks ago||Now you know why||
Now you know why they wall want to take their visits.

His bball team has a good shot at winning state and he might play both for IU.

I thought this was about a player named Autumn.

|3 years 4 weeks ago||We rode the big roller coaster first||
I agree with you. Have you ever been to an amusement and rode the biggest fastest roller coaster first? The rest of the rides seem small and slow. Versus if you ride them in order from smallest to biggest they all seem big and fast. Hopefully this perspective from this game will help us in all the others. Normal amounts of space to throw and run though will now seem big, players will be easier to block and tackle.

Think I am going to make the trip from IN to go with my cousin from AA.
|3 years 17 weeks ago||Yes||
Then Farrell announced it was his exclusive and he would announce it an hour earlier than everyone else was allowed. So after announcing his exclusive at 8:00 am Sam released it at 7:50. Sam did the same thing to him that he did to everyone else.
He shoudn't of announced the time. All that did was give the other guys a time to beat.
|3 years 17 weeks ago||Farrell said he would have the exclusive this morning||
Last night Farrell said "I will have Henry Poggi's announcement exclusively Monday (tomorrow) morning at 8am EST thanks to coach Poggi."
Then he later responded to someone saying that "9am release for everyone else I am told."
Did he have any exclusive info? No. He just thought he got the ok to release the info first and then call it his. Apparently Webb also got it and that left Farrell getting scooped on a story that he would exclusively break.
What he gets for trying to come in late and call a story his when many people knew about it and were holding it.

Ohio Law? Is it even real?
|3 years 22 weeks ago||They are turning it up on Smith now||
As I mentioned above they were at his HS working him and some of his teammates out this week. Fickell and Vrabel were there. Don't know if that is normal to send 2 coaches or not. Smith is an ND lean and I think they know it. A couple of his teammates have show well at 7-7s and camps. So I wouldn't be suprised to see Ohio offer one or two of them to try to intice him to commit. HIs brother is already there. It will be interesting to see if they offer Tyvel Jemison DB, Mike Rodgers WR, Kendrick Mullen DB (brother plays at IU), Andrew Spencer DB (Brother is A Spencer LB for the Cowboys).
|3 years 22 weeks ago||Fickell and Vrabel||
Fickell and Vrabel were in Fort Wayne this weekend working out Jalen Smith and a couple other Luers players. Smith is a ND lean so I expect that Ohio will really turn up the heat and try to get him since his brother plays there. Interesting to see if they can flip him. While it is a catholic school the coaching staff is very pro Ohio.
