|1 day 10 hours ago||So far Michigan hasn't shown any interest||
sounds like because they didn't think he had any real interest in going north to Ann Arbor and just wanted a Michigan offer because it was another nice thing to add to the list. I also always thought it might be a bit related to the drama attached to Moses. It's not really his fault, but being as high profile as he's been since 8th freaking grade is a factor and could lead to a "non-Michigan attitude" type situation. No idea if that applies or not, but wouldn't be surprising.
Either way, if Michigan wants him and thinks he's serious about considering it, he'll get an offer and hear from Harbaugh plenty. Plus - wouldn't it be sweet to arguably get the #1 prospect in the nation 3 years in a row? Peppers > Gary > Moses?
|5 days 11 hours ago||It's not really about merchandise||
it's a joint business with his life coach dude whose name I can't exactly remember. The dude is one of those new-age homeopathy kind of guys that practices alternative medicine and pushes preventative health measure rather reactionary type medicines. Brady swears by it, and says his friend's methods saved his career after he had that infected surgery and was told by 'traditional' doctors he may not play again at all and not for another year if he did.
|1 week 1 day ago||Twitter bios||
that is the only place people are getting that info from
|1 week 1 day ago||Don't be so naive as to relay something||
a well known recruiting reporter directly said?
Maybe you should direct that Trieu since he's the one who reported it?
|2 weeks 11 hours ago||I am about 97.8% sure every parent of every recruit||
has a pretty damned good idea where their child's commitment status stands.
Again, remember when people freaked out because pushed Swenson out with no warning and didn't tell him anything at all? Or when we learned, whoa, that wasn't true at all - the coaches had told him his performance was lacking, asked him to come up campus multiple times, etc. and he didn't improve or make any of those requested camp visits. They'd told him months before he may not have a spot in the class if he didn't pick it up, but when it just came from his side initially it sounded like a long time recruit was blindsided and booted out.
|2 weeks 14 hours ago||It sounded really bad from Erik Swenson too at first||
then we learned more information and oh, it wasn't so bad actually. Maybe stop making up your mind and judgments on partial information?
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I saw the "scholarship pull" on the scroller of ESPN yesterday||
basically saying Michigan sideswipped Swenson and something about NCAA rules (I think saying not against them technically). Made it sound like Michigan was sketchy as hell in the process but this new information makes a world of difference.
People best need be backing up off Harbaugh now, pulling out pitchforks without all the info.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||What about the fact they don't think he can play here?||
What do you as a coach? Maybe tell the recruit earlier if possible, but do you take a kid you don't think is still good enough for your program out of "loyalty" and let him sit on bench for 1-2 years before suggesting a transfer or do you just do it now and cut the cord? It may be shitty, but isn't 4 years of playing and maybe a couple starting years at Northwestern trump never playing and being suggested to transfer after a couple years at Michigan?
|3 weeks 11 hours ago||while I agree, fwiw||
he has more than 2 weeks. Signing day isn't a deadline but a beginning of the period as I'm sure you know. He can take a couple monthe to do visits and re-evaluate things if needed. Options may be more limited yeah, but not like he's 100% screwed if not signed in 2 weeks somewhere.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||What he means is||
when he saw the recruit got an offer from Texas A&M, he checked that recruit's twitter follows and the 3 most recent (after getting offer) follows were TAMU girls.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||To put it less cryptic (somehow, Brian was really clear)||
he did not take any official visits anywhere. Not even Michigan.
You can not take an official NCAA visit unless your grades are in good standing. Michigan wanted him in the class and didn't push him out. Put it together.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||He's not a safety||
and even so, a safety set NCAA interception record 2 years ago.
Plus, he basically dropped 4-5 INTs this past season as it was. I'd say those numbers are well in possible range, but fewer receiving yards, more rushing, more sacks or tackles for loss, and a return TD or two.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Stanford Samuels the Third is a baller name||
Follow your former teammates and soon to be coach ( Bush SR coming here right?) to the promised land!
|5 weeks 8 hours ago||Considering Sam and most of the other recruiting writers||
talk directly to recruits, their family, and their coaches - I think they knw a good bit more than you do. Of course it's highly speculative but they're dealing with the decisions of teenagers being pulled all kinds of directions with constnatly changing goals. Still, it's a lot more than just guesswork.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Define pan out?||
He was behind Graham Glasgow who was
1. two full years ahead of him and
2. really damn good
If he doesn't get the start at center next year it'll be because Cole moved over and see #2 above because Cole is already pretty damn good.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||I cannot wait 8 months||
|5 weeks 3 days ago||He's pretty quiet||
and doesn't talk to people much it seems. Especially reporter types; I think his last interview came from a student at his school or something like that.
|6 weeks 9 hours ago||How many spots are we down to now?||
Assuming Scott is very likely gone.
It sounds like Michigan is probably in the lead for Gary, Crawford, DeLance, and Young. Would likely get Jones or Jackson for LB, in the top 2 or 3 for both Levi and Murphy at DE, and top 2 for Hill and Long as DBs.
I'd assume those first 3 get spots regardless if they want one, but I think that leaves just 1 (maybe 2?) known scholarships for anyone else.
|6 weeks 14 hours ago||Not offense to defense||
but Texas A&M had two guys drafted pretty highly as tackles that started out as a QB and TE. Matthews and Joeckel were both like top 6 picks
|7 weeks 6 days ago||Taking on blocks is as much motivation and skill||
as it is size. Joe Bolden has pretty typical ILB size and really struggled taking on blocks for a long time and even when he got better at making contact still hasn't been great at shedding / picking a side
|8 weeks 4 days ago||da fuq did I just read?||
too early for drugs, man.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||Theodore Sturgeon||
approves of your username and the message.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||Not the exact same||
but remember that other guy with the crazy impressive workout videos that had people including Brian giddy for him to get here? He even had that one super quick footwork video with Jungle Beats playing.. he's done a lot so far.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||Did Durkin go to Jackson's home||
and tell him he wasn't going anywhere the day before accepting another job? It sounds like Muschamp had already accepted the South Carolina job but not announced it and still went to see recruits telling them he'd stay at Auburn. That seems a bit different from Durkin who seems to still be going on recruiting visits for Michigan even after being announced as Maryland coach oddly.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||I think||
he was counting on Dymonte to attack his blocker better and force Elliott upfield sooner maybe? It does seem odd for sure how he started out so deep but is making his turn virtually behind Elliott and having to chase instead of cut off.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||Whelp, can probably kiss all those visiting recruits bye as well||
dumpster fire all over today
|10 weeks 3 days ago||It's especially embarrassing||
when you know exactly what they are going to do, and they still dominate you.
|11 weeks 6 days ago||Which has absolutely nothing to do with Hill...||
At this point, next year should have the following QBs still on the roster:
Morris RS JR
O'Korn RS JR (pretty sure he'll have 2 years left)
Speight RS SO (I think he's RS FR now right?)
Malzone RS FR
Gentry RS FR
Morris may be gone and Vicious Vic may switch positions but none of that is known at this point and even then that gives 5 scholarship QBs - all of which would have multiple years of eligibility left. Adding Hill on top of that is a lot of QBs and very likely pushes away one of the younger players.
|11 weeks 6 days ago||A lot of guys majorly considering Texas||
as well as Georgia in there for a few of the remaining top targets.
Has to be at least somewhat helpful there is coaching uncertainty at both of those schools. Strong bolting for Miami would probably be better for him and Michigan.
|12 weeks 2 days ago||Not quite as simple as telling him no||
he was going to have a chance to play, but UM also suggested strongly that he sit out and fully rehab his multi-injured knee and his scholarship would be good even without the SR year. He (his parents it sounded like actually) decided he should go ahead and play anyway for that last bit of high school, and then he blew out the knee... again...
It's understandable from his point of view of wanting to play, but he has to understand where UM is coming from as well.
