i would find this more credible if it was about Tom Crean

247 is reporting a new offer today to Toks Akinribade (2016 class), the #63 RB (3*) in their composite rankings. Already 2 crystal balls for us. Here's his film.

I'm sorry, but given the comments above, "popular and fast-growing" just made me think about male genitalia again. Yes, I'm still in Jr High.

I've heard the itching is the worst part.

This one is still my favorite. My local station too!

One time, Frank Sinatra sat down in this chair right here and I said Frank, you hang out with Fred Jackson, just between you and me, how old is Fred Jackson? And you know what he said to me? 147 years old! 147 years old!!

If Ferentz won't approve a Rudock transfer, I blame you Mr. Juan Harris ;) Seriously though, great to see that this staff is having such an impact on these recruits. Great write up as always Ace. Bring on Signing Day 2016!!

Nicky Hayden runs #69 because of his dad. The younger Hayden claims his dad chose the number during his motocross days because "it read the same when he was upside down after a crash". Yeah, that was the reason ;)

Seems like another great hire. If this picture is any indication, Mr. Finotti seems to share many traits with Coach Harbaugh (do turf shoes count as cleats?).
|2 weeks 5 days ago||This finding by the corps is||
This finding by the corps is probably partially motivated by ODNR's need for an access road along the embankment for maintenance. I worked as summer help at Buckeye Lake State Park in 1994 and have personally walked that embankment from Leib's Island to the emergency spillway during a flood event looking for any leaks. That is not a good feeling when you are standing on said embankment. This will be interesting to watch unfold.
Edit: BTW, if you've never been to the lake, it's already a 3,000 acre mud puddle. I think the average depth is around 6 feet and there are many places where you have to navigate old tree stumps and the tow path from the canal.

There's a big difference between the OL being the "strength of the team" and having a great OL. I'm a glass half empty kind of guy so I cringed at that statement. I hope your optimistic view is correct and I'm just grumpy as usual.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||I'm not sure how to feel||
I'm not sure how to feel about this as a Bills fan. I really liked Alonso and assume he would be able to make a full recovery from an ACL at his age. This pretty much assures that CJ Spiller won't be back. I like Spiller a lot but he can't seem to stay healthy. McCoy is good, but how much does he have left in this era of short RB careers? Plus Sexy Rexy hasn't ever shown the ability to develop an efficient offense, much less an explosive one that could feature McCoy's abilities.

He was the narrator for "In Search Of" back when I was a kid. I used to love that show.

I'm getting less caught up in the stars with our new coaching staff. If they like the film, I think this staff sees talent they can develop even if it isn't obvious to the recruiting sites. I also went through 247's projected first rounders (I know, projected) and I'm amazed how many 3* and juco guys there are. I guess I'm just saying that I understand your concern, but try not to think of all 3* guys as projects.

I honestly feel bad for the kid and hope there is a way Baylor and the NCAA can work this out to get him back on the team. I also think the NCAA has a lot of stupid regulations and is generally worthless. That being said, if you replaced the "close family friend" that helped him get an apartment in the story with "booster", would everyone still be outraged with the NCAA's decision?
The biggest problem I see with the story is that the NCAA selectively enforces their rules. They come down on a homeless player for accepting housing and look the other way when other rules get broken (Cam Newton's dad comes to mind).

The background of the visor tab should be clear or maize with a blue Adidas logo. That would look pretty good and not break up the wings on the helmet as much.

This guy should be their mascot and color analyst for all broadcasts.

I worked at a restaurant with a guy who never did laundry. He bought clothes at the Salvation Army, wore them until they could stand on their own, and then bought more.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||I have no problem with them||
I have no problem with them giving him a medical hardship if the injury is legit. But if his injury is legit, why was he playing in their last game? And yes, it's much better to ask a kid to leave the game than to let/force him to endanger himself.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||I hate to link to the OSU||
I hate to link to the OSU page, but they should have a hard time arguing with it at least. Reeves had one tackle. The other player's name slips my mind, but I know he was listed in the participation report. I guess I can't say for certain they played "significant" time, but if Reeves really has post concussion syndrome, any time is dangerous.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||I guess we are saying the||
I guess we are saying the same thing. We are not currently over 85. Chances are, several players leave before we get any grad trasfers, so we should never be over 85. Whether you want to call what OSU does "oversigning" or not, they have more than 85 scholarships committed right now. We do not. That is my point.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Yeah, but 2 of the players||
Yeah, but 2 of the players getting "medical hardships" played significant time in the championship game. Not really sure how that happens. It's not just about getting to 85, it's about how the coach makes the math work.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||The difference is you are at||
The difference is you are at 88 NOW. We could end up over 85 this summer or some players could leave before these grad transfers even happen. Not really the same thing at all.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Have you read any of the||
Have you read any of the articles on this? I find it hard to believe that you could keep arguing that this is just some sort of mix up if you have the facts. This was a fairly complex scheme involving several levels of authority, not just some kids "accidentally" landing on the team. The plagiarism comparison is completely off base.

I have had a no Twitter policy up to now. I think that may have to change.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||The parents falsified||
The parents falsified documents provided to the league. Even if the kids had no idea that it was wrong (which I find very hard to believe), their parents are responsible for the cheating as well as the coaches and administrators. I feel bad for the kids if they really didn't know what was going on, but it isn't fair to say they should keep their title that was won with other leagues' players.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||The Illinois District 4||
The Illinois District 4 administrator, Michael A. Kelley, was in on the illegal boundary changes, so the larger Little League body was not aware of it last year. Kelley was put into his position just before last season and had a long history with the Jackie Robinson West team. This was a very elaborate plan to cheat that was carried out by parents, coaches, and league administrators. This is a pretty detailed article outlining exactly how it was done.

They are in a no win situation of their own creation if Weber asks for his release. You either grant it and tacitly admit you screwed him over or make a kid that doesn't want to be there stay on your team until he can transfer. I'm sorry Weber has to go through this but I'm really enjoying OSU looking like dirtballs.

How sad does it make the Bears look if that's true? I would think an NFL team would have a longer interview process than contacting a guy for the very first time Wednesday and hiring him on Thursday. Of course, it is the Bears so . . .
|7 weeks 4 days ago||I agree from a journalistic||
I agree from a journalistic perspective. However, it would destroy the Buckeye excuse that they didn't know Drayton was leaving until Wednesday or Thursday, which I think is the bigger deal for future recruiting and credibility.
