He said he was not comitting on his visits LAST weekend.
I would love to get Hill...and Corley (though I am not sure what position gets dropped if we add 2 more receivers - assuming Mitchell).
I think Sam Webb expects at least one of the '17s to drop - most likely Malone-Hatcher imo.
|4 days 7 hours ago||Yes - the execution that we||
Yes - the execution that we HAD to have a new legends Jersey each year for the ceremony/tickets sales/merchandise reasons and the required the number switching. The selection and special treatment of the number-switchers probably caused tension.

Thread Jack!! -- For those who said they wanted that M/Tigers Maize and Blue cap that Harbaugh wore at the Tigers' game....MDen is selling them per Sam and Ira on WTKA today. Don't know how to start a thread on the HD app - (Sorry WD, you can start a thread on this still!)

Mine was a Bonanza but same thing......@$0.50 under minimum wage. People could make some nasty concoctions at the salad/desert bar.
|1 week 3 days ago||+1 for the sentiment||
And while I don't agree with anyone with a "good riddance" theme, I do think that if he didn't see the need for a fundamental change in how things were being done in the program then he probably would not have enjoyed his final year in AA.
It is a shame in that he probably would have seen decent playing time given JH's proclivity to use TEs and the relative lack of depth on the current roster.
5th years are becoming basically a free-agent period anyways in the NCAA for better or worse.
|1 week 3 days ago||Not OSU ....Ohio (Bobcats)||
Pretty sure we are doing away with the BH "Ohio" terminology. (not that I care either way)
|1 week 3 days ago||I don't recall that directly||
.....Not that we ever miss the chance to bag on Meyer.
The players do NOT stay on scholarship as they have had their 4 years and degrees. (I believe it is basically impossible to be to remain academically eligible and not get your degree in 4 years given that players also attend summer sessions.)
To do what you describe, Meyer would basically be telling them "take a medical or get off the team" which really makes no sense for a 5th year as you can just tell them to walk (see the many debates on how we get to 25-28 for next year..). I suspect that the story was Meyer was doing this to non-5th years -- which is what Pee Wee was claimed that JH was doing to him -- which led to a lot of questions even for JH when that story first came out.
|1 week 4 days ago||Am I the only one who is||
Am I the only one who is bothered every time I see Decker's name at OSU? Didn't he choose the Buckeyes over M because they told him he could play TE whereas M told him he was a tackle? (Assuming full well that OSU had no intention of using him at TE.)

More like Brian CRook, am I right!
|2 weeks 6 days ago||It is VERY||
It is VERY situational...remember it is a "contest" between the pundits. Daelin chose quite early in the process catching people off guard. Since you cannot get points picking a school a kid has already chosen and there is no penalty for picking incorrectly - a lot of folks threw in a pick for the team thought to most-likely flip him. You can sometimes get a better feel if you dig in to when the "balls" we're made. We have basically no chance at Daelin. LaVert Hill is in a similar situation. Anyone who was wrong about PSU has no penalty switching to another school, which is why you see so many M and MSU CBs in the last few months.

I like him a lot also... But like Bush and Kelly as well.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Any chance the staff is||
Any chance the staff is slow-playing him a bit given the limited spots? - Still have Bush, Kelly, and Johnson as potential LBs as well (probably on that order of likelihood to get a commit) and 28 is already approaching.

|4 weeks 1 day ago||With split divisions and unbalanced schedules||
I don't see how you could get this to work in the B1G. If divisions were kept as-is I suppose you could put in language that says the title game is between division winners unless the #2 team in one division (=East division) is X spots ahead of the other division winner in the polls, but this puts it back into the human error/opinion realm.
This also might not be best for the conference if we see the return of 2 dominant teams in the one (East) Division. In the current system, both OSU and M would have (most likely) made the playoff in 2006 regardless of the Conference title game result. IF there was a rematch with the same winner I doubt the loser would reach the playoff.
P.S. -- Warning Apparel pondering...... Anyone think that IF M has decided on Nike they would wait to do a big announcement at The Opening next week? Would big a splash for both parties given the TV coverage and recruits on-site. (My first and only apparel related comment on this blog.)

I took his comment to mean the joke was Adidas saying "THEY" can bring manufacturing back to Detroit.......but I could be wrong....
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Don't believe so...... As||
Don't believe so...... As noted above - we have 3 Walk-ons taking Schollies in our current 85. As far as I know these do not count in terms of back-dating, so we already have our 3-slots to back date.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Time to let it go young man||
That much anger over a message board isn't healthy.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Wouldn't it be a bit||
Wouldn't it be a bit hypocritical for JH to fire Minick for something he had done in the past?
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Glasgow doesn't count for||
Glasgow doesn't count for back dating purposes as his scholly is year-year based on availability as a walk-on, so you can add one to that number. I would guess he is being advised that he probably won't get one in 2016 though.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Well there is always the goal||
Well there is always the goal of freeing up schollies for 2 walkons that are both brothers and probable starters this season.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||We are (or were) still||
We are (or were) still looking for a WR 5th year transfer. This means that the staff feels comfortable that there is at least 1 scholarship that could be used for 2015. Hence the "make room" statement. The issue would be that he would also take away from how many they can take for 2016 - which is what I am sure they had to weigh.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Remember he was a backup plan||
Remember he was a backup plan even for Hoke and that 2015 is probably the year we need the most DE help (Marshall still young, Jones and Johnson frosh yrs). I am sure JH and crew took a good look at him -- (can you workout a transfer unlike a HS recruit?) - and they would have made room for him if they liked what they saw enough imo.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||I think we get Davis too...||
I think we get Davis too... But still have big holes and WR, DE/Buck, and true LB imo even before holding spots for the possible Gary's and Kelly's. Add in the probable kicker and 25 may become 28. (Better earn a starting spot if you are a RS Junior and want to get a 5th yr.)

Have you not read thru the endless bitching in the previous 2 threads?
|5 weeks 3 days ago||No scheduled announcements||
No scheduled announcements that I know of. But there was a tweet from a coach at Detroit King last night with a lot of Ms in it that led to commit speculations. Plus the 5 4-stars from Jersey arrive today (? Or tomorrow)

Was thinking the same.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||The question I have for you||
The question I have for you is....is RoJo (2) one of them? I had heard maybe M had cooled on him despite the rating?
|5 weeks 4 days ago||To agree with you - Sam Webb||
To agree with you - Sam Webb said something about not being surprised if Metellus ended up in AA "in some manner" before the actual commitment. This leads me to believe that a gray-shirt etc. might be a possibility in his case. Since the coaches cannot say, I guess we won't know fore sure until NSD.
