Till he lifted his hand up, I was convinced his hands and feet were tied and he was trying to wiggle his feet free...
I only hope that if I'm ever taken hostage, my captors treat me so well though... it looks like they've had him on a steady diet of brisket for the last week.

Edwards recounting the recruitment of Ty Detmer is one of my all time favorite recruiting stories:
"We’d had a pretty good run at quarterbacks when he came along. We tried to recruit a kid named John Elway. We tried to recruit other big names out of high school. We couldn’t even get them to come for a visit. So this kid down in Texas had all kinds of stats. He threw more in a game in high school there than we did for a couple of seasons… He committed for a visit. Between his junior and senior year, he and his father took a trip to look around. The first time I saw him, they opened the door and there’s this little guy there. He had an Adam’s apple bigger than his biceps. He probably weighed 145 pounds or something like that… We sat down and his dad, who was also his high school coach, said, ‘Well, coach, if you want him, he’s yours.’ And I’m thinking, ‘Something’s wrong here. I wonder what film they sent me.’ … I looked at him and I was expecting to see John Elway and I saw Pee Wee Herman. … He came after his senior year, and he wasn’t in camp four or five days when Norm Chow came in and told me, ‘I think we’ve got something very, very special here.’"

My favorite moment from the Samuels highlight reel is when their team runs an option play, there are three guys that have the QB and Samuels dead to rights. Instaed of the QB charging up field to salvage whatever he can, he pitches back to Samuels who reverses field for a 55 yard touchdown,evading six or seven dudes. Absolutely ridiculous.

Coached HS football for five years, during and a little bit after college. Some of the most fun I've ever had. It's been about 10 years and I miss it all the time.
I would recommend coaching (at any level) it to anyone who has the desire to try it. Coaching gives you (at least it did for me) a completely different perspective on the game.

haha, trolling for DISRESPEKT. Dantoni must be running out of board material.

I'm sure some players like to read about themselves and I know some make comments to reporters about what they've written. But I also assume all of those comments are not going to be made mid-interview, on the record.

His running style reminds me a lot of Gurley as well.

I would love to see our opponents have to deal with four quarters of Devon Smith and Samaje Perine.

Good lord, I've yet to watch any clips of Slaton but he looks like a dude's dude.

I went to a Eau Claire Express game last year and it was a lot of fun. I'll definitely be going back.

haha the first thing I thought of when I saw the name Chauncey Gardner was, "I like to watch"...which was very fitting for that clip.

Agreed on Hot Chip. I'm not even a huge fan of their records but they are amazing live. Try to get to every show of theirs I can.

I was in vegas last week and the odds for Bama and Michigan were the same, 6/1. I'm glad to see they are tempering expectations.

I was expecting to see Wormley as one of the three.

haha, I think he was just pissed off at that point. There were some atrocious calls in that game.

Wow, he looks pretty good for only having played one season of football.

It's totally insane but I love it. I laughed out loud when I read 30 camps.
I'm sure Harbaugh knew others were going to follow suit this year, so he's like "cool, I'll do ten times as many!"

I have often wondered how much you would have to offer an Alabama or LSU to play above the mason-dixon?
It's probably more than anyone would be willing to pay but I'd still be curious to know what that number is.

I would find it hilarious if Kirby Smart took time to fly down to Florida to watch Michigan practice. That seems like an excellent use of your time.
I guess I don't know what kind of practices Harbaugh has planned in Florida but I get the impression that he would be totally indifferent to other coaches showing up to them.

I was aware of Gentry's move....I wasn't aware of Hill's move.
I fear that this makes me aware but not fully aware.

It has to be tempting but Peppers is such a good tackler. Good tackling corners are not exactly the easiest thing to find.

Unlikely scenario. I think we're in the Cleary.
