Yeah, that was my point. He was overrated at RB, but since he was never rated (AFAIK) at the position he would actually play, it's hard to say he was overrated at that position. Like, if he had been rated a 4* WR I probably would agree that in retrospect he was overrated.

I agree with everything you said. And I don't think I was overvaluing Norfleet, just making an argument for why it might be unfair to say that he was overrated, particularly since he was highly rated at a position no one ever thought he would play.
And I'm willing to grant that it is possible that both Borges and Nuss found him to be lacking. But given that Borges was pretty loath to call the kinds of plays Norfleet was good at for anyone else either, I don't think you can necessarily use his lack of production at the slot as evidence that he isn't good. It might be that, but it might also be that he was a Rodriguezian peg in a Borgesian hole.

|1 week 2 days ago||This is only a partial||
This is only a partial answer, but I think there is some truth to it. I had a good pal who was an assistant coach for a semi-elite AAU team. He said that what most people think about the AAU is incorrect--that it is riven with corruption. He said that 99% of the kids are not being paid by anyone.
But then he went on to say that the top 1% is unimaginably corrupt. Like, literally (and here I do literally mean "literally") duffel-bags-full-of-cash-left-on-relatives'-front-porches corrupt.
So then it seems like there are three kinds of elite or semi-elite programs:
I think UConn under Jim Calhoun and UMass and Memphis under Calipari are good examples of (1), KU and UK are probably on the border of (1) and (2); Duke and UNC are probably clear examples of (2), Michigan State and Gonzaga are probably on the border of (2) and (3), and programs like Michigan, Virginia, Wisconsin, maybe VCU, Wichita State, Butler under Brad Stevens, etc. are pretty clear examples of (3).
The problem is that most of the elite players go to (1) and (2) schools, making U-M's recruiting not look obviously stellar (McGary excepted). Let's hope that Jaylen Brown, Tyus Battle, Cassius Winston, Derryck Thornton, Jr., etc. flip that script.

But we aren't 5-0. We suck, and there is mounting evidence that this is because our HFC doesn't know how to react to changing times and field a competitive team in a Power 5 conference post-Y2K. The blunder with Morris is just more evidence that this is so, not a tacked-on morally outraged reason to want him gone.

A jam sort of requires that the DB be exerting force in the opposite direction as the WR wants to go (physics!) so that means a whiff on a jam leads to a free release by the WR. And if the point of press coverage is to enable your safeties to roll up, then you might wind up with a real problem on the back end.
Hehe free releases on the back end.

I agree about Great Lakes. But if you're able, try to get ahold of some of the stuff that's being produced down here in the Queen City. Christian Moerlein is old as the hills but is being brewed here again. And then the two new upstarts--Rhinegeist and MadTree are just knockng it out of the park day after day.
As a point of comparison, Rhinegeist Truth and Bell's Two Hearted are fairly interchangeable, and both the Rhinegeist Zen and the MadTree Sprye are excellent examples of whatever all-day IPA you like.

That Teske video is pretty impressive and totally fits JB's MO of taking guys with lots of upside. I know far less about big men than wings and guards but I saw:
He is obviously skinny and needs to get a lot stronger and heavier, but that will come both from another year in HS and from Camp Sanderson. And, he definitely needs to improve his post moves and his shot, but he's starting out with really good fundamentals so I'm sure that will come.
Excited about this kid. Beilein uber alles!
|29 weeks 3 hours ago||I'm probably getting overly||
I'm probably getting overly semantic here, but I guess I think that they are both pretty awfully violent things to do to someone (not just the punching, but the damage it caused).
I would agree that if the explusion line is placed right at what Gibbons did, then I probably wouldn't say York's offense was at that line or worse. But I tend to think York's offense was also past that line, even though on balance I probably agree that Gibbons's is well past that line.
I guess I would turn the question around on you--why is (almost certainly) giving someone a concussion, breaking their jaw in three places, forcing them into weeks of recovery, and potentially giving them PTSD, not also worthy of explusion?
|29 weeks 3 hours ago||That's kind of my point, I||
That's kind of my point, I think. If (1) Glasgow had hit someone with his car and broken their jaw and knocked them unconscious; and (2) there was high-quality video of it that made it unambiguous that he did it on purpose, people probably would have had a much bigger problem with it.
I was mostly responding to Brian's apparent chagrin that people were so ready to shitcan York. I think the video had a lot to do with that reaction.
|29 weeks 4 hours ago||I don't think you have to||
I don't think you have to interpret what I said that way. For them to be treated similarly by policy doesn't mean we have to think they are exactly the same thing.
|29 weeks 4 hours ago||I'm generally sympathetic to||
I'm generally sympathetic to dudes like York, and I think if all we heard was "Csont'e punched a guy in the face and broke his jaw" we'd probably give him the benefit of the doubt in the sense that we wouldn't know exactly what happened (a la Lewan punching megaphone Buckeye man).
And in a sense we still don't know exactly what happened because of no audio. But that video... I mean, this was not remotely a scuffle or a "heat of the moment" thing. He balled up, paused, and then drilled a guy looking away with his hands in his pockets.
It's easy for me to believe the kid said something or was generally douchey, but man. Some things you just can't undo, and I honestly can't get myself to a place where York should stay on the team. I'm not at all sure of the UM policies on this, but it seems like if Gibbons got expelled, York should too. Both are unconscionably violent acts and to me require revoking the privilege of attending UM.
