I wish I could be a fly on the wall for any in-home visit, but especially THIS one.
|14 hours 28 min ago||Honestly, it was an attempt||
Honestly, it was an attempt at a subtle joke, given the preceding "worst decommitment" thread. But I did have either Pearlie Graves or DaQuinta (D.T.) Jones in mind, given one or both of them had never set foot on campus at the time of their commitment(s). Perhaps no surprise that both decommitted (and are mentioned in the decommitment thread).

Are we talking surprise commits who stayed committed, or do surprise commits who subsequently decommitted count?

Miggle beats me by a minute. And adds insult to injury with an imbed. Curses, app.

Was there a specific program that he was speculated to be going to? I guess that surprises me, given his second straight unremarkable coaching stop, along with the fact that expectations at UA seem more in line with what he's able to accomplish.

+1 mobile. Don't know of many HOFers who went on to coach, either.

If you Google "Clemson pick," you'll find a plethora of analyses that explain why the final play was legal. In fact, I have yet to find one that presents the contrary. Yes, it was a pick play. No, it was not a penalty. The outside receiver attempted to run his route, the DB initiated contact, and the second DB had to take a circuitous route.

Seems to be par for the course, lately.

Maybe because he supported his players boycotting a bowl game, potentially losing millions of dollars for the school (and making it look very bad if it had to pull out of the bowl), setting a bad precedent for player leverage/power (especially if the charges turn out to be substantiated), and generally appearing to not be a good "company man" for contesting the decisions of the university administration? I'm not knocking him for supporting his players; that's admirable. But it's not a mystery why he got canned. It has nothing to do with his coaching record.

Just remembered. It was Baylor's new coach, who's coming from Temple. He was interviewed during Baylor's bowl game. Specifically said he wasn't going after his Temple recruits, because it wasn't ethical and he maintained respect for the Temple program.
|1 week 2 days ago||Serious question (no snark||
Serious question (no snark intended): who was the coach who recently changed programs and specifically made reference to the ethics of poaching recruits from the previous program? I'm blanking and the coaching carousel is full this year (or maybe I'm just too lazy to search for the quote right now).

Ticked about...Fleck leaving or taking his commits with him? I assume it's the former.

...both coaches inherited bad teams and improved them during their tenures. A so-so overall coaching record may not scream "success" when you spend the first couple years working with a bad team and/or empty cupboard.
Sorry for the formatting; too lazy to figure out tables at the moment.

Wait about three days and then send out the U-M directory-scouring WD bat signal.
EDIT: OP changed the thread title, so now I look like an idiot.
|1 week 6 days ago||Just here for the IBD-bang||
But to be honest, I didn't even know he was still on the team (and it appears I'm not the only one). I don't recall seeing him on the depth chart by class, but perhaps I overlooked him.

This hawt take couldn't fit in the earlier JOK news/opinion thread?
Oh well. IBD.

I can't speak for anyone else, but you could probably take some of the sting out of this (and make at least ME feel better) with an always-anticipated Swim Lanes update...

Merry Christmas (or Happy Hanukkah or Kwanzaa) to all. Wishing you all good health and good fortune in 2017!

But unless I'm getting paid, I'm gonna sit out this exhibition thread to prepare for the thread-making draft.
And get paid.
