|48 weeks 3 days 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.
|48 weeks 3 days 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?

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.

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?
|1 year 33 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).
|1 year 33 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.

If you guys all want it changed who is volunteering to go back and retrospectively change all the spreadsheets?
|1 year 35 weeks ago||Accuracy a flaw?||
I am not saying Morris is over or under ranked. I am just commenting on the fact that ESPN has his major flaw as accuracy.
1. I have not heard of this being a concern until their Elite 11 camp in Dallas. Just questioning whether this is truly a concern or are they trying to find stats to support their camp evaluation. Which could have been jitters or just a bad day. Or he truly has accuracy issues.
2. The fact that they point to Morris's HS completion percentage (52%) as support to his lack of accuracy, is weird when the #1 QB on the list completed only 50% of his passes last year and is an "accurate" QB.
|1 year 35 weeks ago||Has anyone seen Morris play?||
ESPN knocks him for his accuracy (referring to the Dallas camp and his HS completion %). They said it needs to be up around 64% this year. His JR year is comp % was 52%. While this may be true stats can vary wildly at the HS level for so many different reasons. If you look at the game by game stats he had some terrible game comp % wise:
Brother Rice 6 of 16 38%
Inkster 7 of 21 33%
St Mary Prep 5 of 14 36%
Cass Tech 4 of 17 24%
The stats dont necessarily tell the whole story. Can someone who has seen him play shed some light. Does he not get enough time and has to throw the ball away? Are his WR not athletic enough to get seperation and get open? Are they trying to throw a homerun ball everytime (which isn't a high completion pass)?
My point is that you can make stats say whatever you want. Is the problem his accuracy, or is ESPN conveniently using this to point out an isolated incident at the Dallas camp?
|1 year 35 weeks ago||Top three avg||
Yes Alabama got 13, and Texas got 12 but they also had recruiting class sizes of 26 and 28. Makes 11 out of 17 very impressive. That is a 65% rate. Tops last year was 53% by FSU. In 2011 it was Bama with 44%. Florida has the highest with 61% in 2010. USC and Florida also had a 50% rate in 2009 but with small classes.
The top three teams (2009-2012) averaged 44% of their class being on the 150 list (or about 11 players).
|1 year 35 weeks ago||Motta benefitted from IU struggles||
Motta got many of his great players from IN after Mike Davis pissed off all the IN highschool coaches in the mid 2000's. He started right around the time Davis angered the coaches and IU struggles started. He got Conley, Oden, Offett, and Thomas in a 4 year period. IU getting better is going to hurt Motta's recruiting.
|1 year 35 weeks ago||LTT and Gedeon had traits added||
This would indicate 6 players. So if we make some assumptions that number may be close.
If you assume that we will have a top 5 class and take the trends from the last 4 ESPN 150's, 6 might be the starting number (which I know will make everyone angry).
The average top 5 class over the last 4 years averages 40% of their players in the 150. The average top 3 class over the last 4 years averages 45%. So that comes out to 7 or 8 guys out of 17 if you take the percentages.
So I would guess 10-11 when recruiting is final.

|1 year 38 weeks ago||I agree with this.||
So this is applicable to an OL with a Michigan offer since we are full at this position. Ohio has only 5 total players and no QB recruit. They are also recruiting the QB position still. So they keep throwing out this term when it doesn't make sense.
While at the same time using stats showing how they beat us out head to head last year for recruits. Problem was many of those guys had their spots filled and that ship had sailed.
Just funny how they spin it to look good no matter what the situation.
|1 year 38 weeks ago||This is a very common problem||
This is a very common problem for QBs and pitchers in big games and camps like this. They go out and try to show off a little extra on the arm. Nothing to worry about. He has the arm, technique, and work ethic. The next camp he will be fine.

Here is the first part of his scout evaluation: "He plays quarterback in high school now and does a tremendous job of leading his team. He's a tremendous leader who flat out knows how to win. He has tremendous football instincts, regardless of what position he's playing." If only he was pointing in the picture.
|1 year 39 weeks ago||It also depends on what combines they attend||
You are exactly right. Also if a player attends one of the combines hosted/attended by a recruiting service they tend to show him more love. ESPN has the sparq combines, and I have seen Ferrell promoting rivals combines on twitter. I think if a player attends then they become "their guy." They also base a lot of their initial rankings before the senior season on these combine results.
|1 year 41 weeks ago||B1G stats||
These stats were with 2 games left to play
Zeller 16.1 ppg 22% of his teams total
Burke 15.5 ppg 25% of his teams total
Michigan is the best in the conference at Turnover Margin which directly relects on the point guard, and why we won so many tight games
Against the top teams in the B1G
11.7 pts 5.3 Reb 0.2 A 1.8 TO 0.5 BLK 0.5 STL
14.7 pts 3.1 Reb 4.4 A 3.3 TO 0.4 BLK 1.4 STL
Burke was better in every category except rebounds. And that margin is not that great when considering a C and PG
Burke had a bigger impact on the B1G race and his team.
|1 year 41 weeks ago||Not the whole story||
Burke minus Morris (best player on our team last year) took UM to league title. Zeller plus the whole cast returing at IU made them better.
|1 year 41 weeks ago||Look at the stats vs top teams||
If you look at the stats vs the other top B1G teams Burke has better stats. Zeller was a no show in many of the big games they lost.
|1 year 42 weeks ago||That was the knock on him at FL||
The knock on him at Florida was that he just recruited the top guys from the recruting services. He didn't watch tape or do a lot of evaluation. Just went blind by what the servies said. While this got him lots of attention from the sites it didn't translate as well as if he were recruiting like UM. It will cost him lots of OH recruits. Maybe he just assumes he can get everyone he wants to flip later. Don't think this method will work well at Ohio. I also think the all flash no substance recruiting style draws the type of kid that is the same.

That Ohio had signed the last 3 or 4 recruits with offers from both schools. Then talked about how sinecure Urban started he has singed all these recruits and joke hasn't done much.

The ND DC and DLine coach are sitting first row behind the Luers bench tonight. They are wearing ND letter jackets and apparently not going to take them off.
|1 year 49 weeks ago||I live about a mile away from the school||
I live in Fort Wayne close to the school. Had many friends attend the school. One of them is now the offensive coordinator for the football team.
Jaylon is the real deal in terms of athletic ability. His brother went Harding High School and they were very good at football. The school recently closed down and a lot of the football players ended up (got recruited) at Luers. Jaylon will most likely leave with 4 state titles. A lot of this is because he is an unstoppable RB.
I asked my buddy why they have him listed on all the recruiting sites as an OLB when he seems to be a better RB. He said that is the position that he went through all the combines at before his JR year. He said they were trying to put together a highlight tape of him playing LB from his JR year to send in and said they were having trouble finding plays to put on the tape. This is due to his primary focus being on offense and taking plays off to rest on defense. So if you look at his HS season he is a better RB than LB. But athletically he can play whereever.
He also said that Smith is not an OSU lock because of his brother and mentioned he like ND. For what its worth the coaching staff there is obviously pro ND since they are a catholic school but they also are pro OSU. The staff used to a lot of stuff with Tressel. No recruits from the school have attened OSU or ND. They have at other B1G schools and MAC schools.
I'll be curious to see if anyone wants him as a RB and whether or not he prefers that position to LB. He seems to at Luers.
|1 year 49 weeks ago||One of the knocks on him at FL||
One of the knocks on him at FL was that he strictly relied on the recruiting services. So he offered all the top guys. Without seeing them or evaluating how they fit into his systems. So while he got many top recruits many did not fit and pan out.
|1 year 49 weeks ago||He is Greg Olsens younger brother||

Barrett Jones said he was coming back. So on the OL they have the Outland Trophy award winner back, Cyrus Kouandijo last years top rated HS tackle. Tyler Love who was a 5 star out of HS, and DJ Fluker their other Returing 5 star tackle. The offense will be well built to run the ball. They could lose up to 12 people on defense, so that loss of experience will hurt. Should be a competitive game.

It could also be 12 from their 2 deep. They could lose all starters except 2 DL positions. The LBs and Secondary will take a big hit. With that said their returning OL is loaded.
|1 year 49 weeks ago||This is why||
This is why you trust the coaches and not just the recruiting sites. Coaches wanted him more than other higher rated recruits such as Schutt and Day.
|1 year 49 weeks ago||He got beat by speed rushes||
He got beat on a few speed rushes to the outside. Looked like he couldnt get low enough.
|1 year 50 weeks ago||They favor UA participants||
If you compare the rankings with all the other sites they have UA participants ranked higher than the others. They also rank Army game participants lower. They also have a large amount of SEC and Texas players compared to the Army game.
|1 year 50 weeks ago||He will also get taken in the MLB Draft.||
He has a legit shot at being taken in the first couple rounds of the MLB draft unless teams get scared off because he is going to play football.
|1 year 50 weeks ago||The 2 star QB got burned?||
Its a shame he got in over someone else.
|1 year 50 weeks ago||Hoke made the right decision||
I agree. Dumping helps no one and he never learns his lesson. Suspending him for a year and making him work the scout team and other internal punishments he received, should have helped him be more accountable, keep structure, finish school, and be in a positive atmosphere.
|1 year 50 weeks ago||Multiple teammates||
Multiple teammates have recently tweeted or talked about him having a great attitude and being a great teammate after all he has been through. It's to bad that he didn't think about this decison before he made it.
|1 year 50 weeks ago||Did he get caught his only time?||
Did he drive once without a license and get caught? Or did he do this a lot and finally get caught? Usually when someone gets a speeding ticket its not because the one time they sped they got caught. Its because they speed when they drive and will get caught eventually.
So this could be another series of bad decisions to drive and not just one.
|1 year 50 weeks ago||He has 2 prostyle QB's||
Will he run an offense similar to Tulane or use them like he did Threet and Sheridan at UM?
|1 year 50 weeks ago||Speaking of Big Plays||
I am so sick of hearing that "Denard has been getting lucky all year thowing the ball up for grabs". At what point if it keeps working is it not lucky? At what point is someone going to mention that Hemmingway always comes down with it so its not lucky?

|2 years 4 days ago||Meyer is like Weiss||
Meyer is like Weiss. He is a good recruiter and can use his scheme to get advantages, but is not a good coach. Hoke and company will develop the talent we bring in and that is more important.
|2 years 4 days ago||Other reading material on her list:||
The Winners Manual - Jim Tressel
The New Gold Standard - Charlie Weiss
Win Forever - Pete Carroll
Meyer is a recruiter not a coach. Wait until we start to get talent and develop it

Janoris Jenkins, a former player, tweeted today "Congratulations to Coach Myers on the new job @ THE OHIO State University."
|2 years 4 weeks ago||The integrity of the rule||
The integrity of the rule and the program are more important than a recruit no matter how good they are.
|2 years 5 weeks ago||Scholarships are limited||
I was an assistant coach on a college baseball team. I don't believe that players left because they were only getting partial schlorships. There is other money out there available to help out (ie grants). But what I always found interesting was finding the kid with good grades that only took $500 schlorship was just important in recruiting as the great player you gave alot of money to. You needed these kids to keep team GPAs up and offset the money you gave to the good players.
|2 years 5 weeks ago||How did the message get watered down||
It started with:
|2 years 7 weeks ago||One of the CBs||
One of there CBs is a good running back and did quite well last year. But he wears the same number as the freshman Crowell. And Crowell won't switch so they haven't been able to use the other guy in offense this year. Looks like he gets his chance now.
|2 years 7 weeks ago||Not looking good for the Rangers||
Not looking good for the Rangers.
|2 years 8 weeks ago||Still a setback losing Cousins||
Cousins has thrown over 900 passes with a 65% completion rate. Maxwell 65 for a 44% rate. That loss of experience will hurt.
|2 years 9 weeks ago||We will take Payton||
We can take Payton since they took Ronald Johnson a few years ago.
|2 years 10 weeks ago||They will bump game 5 to Friday.||
Everything will get bumped back a day in Detroit. They will lose the off day and play game 6 and 7 as currently scheduled.

Jabari Parker's team is also in the tournament. He is a Duke target and rated #1 in the 2013 class.
|2 years 10 weeks ago||The new was released by Bleid Sports||
It appears Bleid Sports (@matthewmoyer70) is organizing this "Clash at Cameron." So I don't know if that helps Duke get around the rule. They are letting someone else use their gym for a tournament, and it just happens to have teams of top recruits Duke is targeting.
They are now talking about adding another game for Brewster on the 16th as well.

Anyone remember when the Colts started with Manning, Harrison, and Freeny? Hope the Lions have a similar run.
|2 years 12 weeks ago||Guess which player||
Which player would you guess is better based on the offer sheet:
Stanford, IU, MSU, Minnesota, Missouri, Neb, Tulsa, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, KSU, Purdue
USC, Florida, MSU, Minnesota, Missouri, That School in Ohio, Oklahoma, Alabama, Tennessee
Player B is Ondre Pipkins. Player A is a DE rated three spots ahead of him in the Missouri rankings.
How does ESPN come to this conclusion about player A with no video or even picture of this kid. Have they ever seen him or know what he looks like?
|2 years 12 weeks ago||3 beers in one setting...||
I once had to take an alcohol class in college, and they said three drinks in one sitting mean you have "a problem." But if you just stick with beer then I guess that only counts as one.
|2 years 13 weeks ago||ND can push around ACC||
ND can make demands and push around the ACC. They can't do this to the BIG 10 and schools like Michigan. So they will go look for a sweetheart deal from the ACC. They would rather be a big fish in a small pond.

|2 years 16 weeks ago||According to Rivals||
According to one of the Rivals Analysts: "Kyle wasn't evaluated this summer because he wasn't at any events -- not NIKE, Opening, Top Gun or any of the biggies and linemen often don't make huge moves during summer. He certainly has a chance for five stars in season or at Army ."

|2 years 26 weeks ago||What is OSU selling?||
"They are going to buy what they're being sold." Unless they go to OSU and get it free. Does anyone from Bucknuts or OSU really have right to play the "ethics card?"
|2 years 26 weeks ago||Maybe they are just steering him away from UM||
Maybe they are just steering him away from UM because they know they can get him back from MSU when the sanctions play out because they don't see them as a real threat. With the way kids are leaving (Kalis) and signing with us when expected to go to them (Strobel) is it that dumb?
|2 years 29 weeks ago||The players all knew||
I don't want to hear any of them complain. They all new what was going on and were ok with it until they got caught. Anyone of the players could have gone to the coaches, or the compliance office and made it an issue they had to deal with.
|2 years 32 weeks ago||Rivals rates to sell subscriptions.||
They rate to sell subscriptions and the SEC schools and ND fan bases buyl the most subscriptions, so their players get more favorable ratings.

It is the same in Indiana. Also with the 2nd in five years it also becomes a felony. Also you don't get caught twice when you have only done it twice. He has made a habit out of this.
