copy link address, paste that into a new window.
"Save link as..." may also come in handy.

I'd fix it in the post, but when I edit it messes up the poll HTML. My apologies to the Yip-Yip.

I'm working on two different posts and two separate outlets jumped the gun on the news. I'm sorry it happened. Some things are tough to avoid.

Second-best: Guy to Harbaugh's right who exits the frame entirely.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Nope||
Who is "Mike Burger"? (Endzone)
The whole point of not naming the guy is that he deserves some level of privacy here. Absolutely no need for open speculation on the board.

OT - Breaking Bad Season 6 confirmed
Five FAKEs out of five.

Chase Utley reportedly traded to Los Angeles Dodgers
There's real football content now and this is stretching the bounds of OT regardless.

...the plan was for him to come with a couple Paramus Catholic teammates. People tend to lump all the New Jersey recruits together, but Gary wasn't a part of that Ron Johnson-Brad Hawkins-Ahmir Mitchell-Cesar Ruiz-Naseir Upshur (Upshur's from PA, but close with those guys) group.
Plus, Mitchell isn't certain he's coming to the BBQ. I don't think it's as simple as Gary deciding not to hit up someone else and ask for a ride. (That's also a big favor to ask if you're not already good friends with someone.) Like I said, from all appearances, Gary did everything he reasonably could to make this trip happen. Me saying that probably isn't going to stop people from freaking out, but it's worth saying again.
EDIT: Also, just did a quick search on Google Maps. Paramus Catholic is 2+ hours away from Camden and Mitchell's hometown (Egg Harbor) is even farther away.

Seth just added our names into the headers before picks; should make things much more clear. We're trying to make this a little easier to follow this time around.

FWIW, Onwenu and Bredeson weren't under consideration for this, or they'd—at least for me—be the clear #1 and #2 in some order. Those two weren't satellite camp commits so they didn't fit the question.

...to suggest Michigan is a viable option for Tagaloa, and I'm pretty sure he's more of a DT prospect, regardless. Steve Lorenz has been pretty consistent in saying M is very much in the mix for Hawaiian prospect Michael Eletise, and he'd most likely be a center in this class.

"Teddy Blanks" is NOT a credible source. At best, he's stealing info from premium sites without attribution, and in this case I'm pretty sure he didn't even manage to interpret the information correctly.
If a Twitter account is giving out so much "insider" info that it seems too good to be true...

...after seeing the Seattle Times report. I think you're very much misinterpreting the post. I think Frank Clark deserves a shot in the NFL. The way Seattle handled the investigation—poorly, in a way that has drawn a major PR backlash that could lead to Clark getting cut to save face—negatively affects Clark's opportunity to get that shot. There's a reason I said this post hurts everyone involved, and I don't think it's fair to anyone, even though Clark is far from a sympathetic figure.
If Seattle had simply acknowleged Clark's actions, stated concern regarding the police report and witness statements, and said they'd provide an environment in which they believe they could support Clark as both a football player and a human being, I wouldn't have written this post today no matter what round Clark was drafted. By not doing so, Seattle hurt everyone involved, including themselves, not that I have any sympathy for the organization itself.

Changed the phrasing. Thanks for pointing that out.

This staff had to start from behind with just about every prospect they've recruited; considering those circumstances, I'm pretty impressed with how they've positioned themselves with a lot of the blue-chippers they're going after. They're going to miss on a lot of them (the vast majority of them, really), because that's how recruiting works, but they haven't even really started peppering the Midwest with offers—they're mostly sticking to high-level national recruits in top talent-producing states.
I don't think it's going to take too much longer for them to land a commit, and when that happens I think the pace will pick up pretty quickly.
|31 weeks 4 days ago||At this juncture...||
...I don't think that's something they have to worry about too much. Most of the early offers have gone out to high-level prospects being pursued by several top programs. Those aren't the guys who are going to commit early, for the most part. Most of the three-star-and-below prospects who've received offers have offer sheets suggesting they'll be rated higher at the end of the cycle.
It's early yet for Michigan to be offering the level of prospect who'd jump at an offer and potentially take a spot from a higher-rated guy. The staff, as best I can tell, manages this through the timing of their offers; we haven't heard anything about levels of committable offers yet.

I'm waiting to post an update until I finish up a couple more tests, but my body's responding very well to the new medication. Barring any unforeseen setbacks, should be feeling normal by the summer, which would be quite welcome.

I've known Bacon since taking his class in 2008 — couldn't turn down the chance to sit courtside. (I don't believe those are his normal seats, FWIW.)
Will be back on press row for Rutgers.
