but I would like to know what the "banter" was that was going back and forth that escalated to this. There is good-natured ribbing between coaches and players all the time. Could be this escalated because of an interpreted disrespect of the coach that inspired him to get in the kid's face. We'll never know I suppose.
|4 hours 41 min ago||Question though...||
is the loss of the recruits a result of the behavior - or a result of the fallout? I tend to lean towards the latter - but of course WITHOUT the former, you would never have the latter. LOL
Point being is I don't think a player is scared off by a dick coach if they want to go there - I think they are scared off by potential instability and implications for the staff that recruited them.

I agree with some of what was said above about different styles of coaching, and learning when to push and pull. However, the report said he basically just met the kid after being hired...so how would he have this experience to know this about him? That he couldn't take it?From the article it sounded like banter between the coaches and the players escalated and all of a sudden it's bullying? The head-butting, if true, is definitely a problem - but the back and forth between them and all of a sudden he can dish it out but can't take it? Sorry - I don't buy the whole story...I believe Rutgers is stone-walling as they are freaked out about the previous incident - but pointing to one isolated incident and calling it bullying? Sorry. Weak.
|5 hours 57 min ago||Ok||
Touchy topic - I know...but without knowing more - on the surface the Tyree incident sounds like what happens every day...on EVERY football field...EVERYWHERE. I remember being called a Fat fck in high school...a p*ssy and a b*tch for having an earring when I walked on in college...
I am NOT saying it is right - but organized athletics are a lot like the military in that they want to break you down and then build you up. Push you to be more than you ever thought possible. Just seems like these days a coach can't even say boo to someone without someone sh*tting their pants. Even coaches correcting little leaguers can't do it anymore with any authority...parents calling from the stands and saying coach is too tough...
P*ssification of America. It's never your fault, it's all ok, we are all winners. B.S.

Suppose the /s was implied and not readily apparent. Even when we have tourneys or "classics" there is very little ever neutral about them. ACC/B1G challenge...in Cameron Indoor? Who signed up for that bullshit? Make those blue bitches come to Crisler. Same way we can't get a home and home with an SEC football team - we seemingly can't get much traction for neutral or home site games against the dookie piles.
|1 day 4 hours ago||Ugh. "Neutral Site" again||
Why does it ALWAYS seem like we play Duke on THEIR home court or on a neutral site that is not really neutral??? Does it only seem that way or is it a reality?
Guess it is more than just seeming that way.
|1 day 10 hours ago||Great||
Wallpaper, thanks! Had to replace my "beat ohio" with something...this fits the bill!
|2 days 3 hours ago||Solid 'Stache! And great||
And great work bringing in all the 'croots ($$$). This is my fourth year doing it, and I heard this a few times: "You're doing this AGAIN??? (with exasperation)". Like I'm asking for the world when I ask for donations. /sigh

I don't want Narduzzi to go anywhere. I want to smash his defense in the mouth next year at the Toilet in E.L. Beat 'em when they're on top as well as when they're down.

didn't see the game as I was on the road at the time. However, I saw the highlights and IMMEDIATELY saw Miller out there with a handful of face mask. How he does NOT get tossed after (1) leaving the bench, and (2) grabbing another player and yanking him around by his face mask is beyond me.
And good luck getting the B1G to hand down any additional punishments. Uncle Urbz already told them "(sic) these kids have already been punished enough...". No additional punishments will be coming.

thought it would take us directly to your stuff - not just a referral link.
|2 days 8 hours ago||Link||
Doesn't direct me to an MGoBlog store...just to default Cyber Monday page.
Redirected link shows mgoblog as an attribute, but the content is generic Amazon.
|2 days 8 hours ago||Ok - not really. Just my son||
Ok - not really. Just my son sympathizing. LOL (and he is a LIONS fan, but his Flag Football team was the Raiders. Ugh.)
Me, rocking the Fu-Manchu as well as Lions/UM Swag:

was amazing. I was SO entranced with Biakabutuka TRUCKING those mf'ers...it was amazing. Loved every minute of it.
Your turn now, Mr. Green.

Get those "Reds"!!!
|1 week 1 day ago||Hoke not here?||
|1 week 1 day ago||Hmm...||
Do you think by retweeting this, that he is demonstrating other top recruits are taking their officials? Kind of a "don't panic people - this is normal" kind of tweet?
That's my interpretation, but interested in your thoughts.
|1 week 1 day ago||Dammit||
You outed me. No tickets for you ReadYourGuard!
|1 week 1 day ago||Definitely agree||
Hoke's comments fanned the flames though - as evidenced by the Front Page semi-rant.

It's an iPhone app. Trying to find an equivalent for my Droid and his Nexus (also on Jellybean OS).

competition might be lacking in Division 8A. He's a man among boys in that video...even as a FREAKING FRESHMAN!
Welcome aboard Mr. Swenson!
|1 week 2 days ago||Thanks!||
I am all for getting him to a game - this year just didn't work out...and last year I felt 7 was probably a little young to keep him entranced throughout...
We are already on the mailing list for the Football Camp which starts with kids going into 3rd grade. That is definitely on the To Do list!

very cool! Would love to see the Lego mosaic...my son is WAAAAY into Legos. Maybe we could work on it as a project!

backup offers I understand...but to suddenly hit up a player out of the blue seems out of character. You at least have an "oar in the water" with backup options - kids you've talked to and show interest in...and at least have them in for visits. The TE/DE guy had never heard from Michigan - clearly hasn't been on campus - and just seems like a wild stab at catching lightning in the bottle with a Gopher commit.
|1 week 2 days ago||Surprised||
at the lack of quality back-up options after losing out on Hand. Not saying these kids aren't good, but going from a consensus #1 5-star DE to a 3-star combo TE/DE seems like a big drop-off.
Is this more because all the "big fish" are already caught - or were were really that caught off guard that we hadn't offered anything near Hand's top-tier talent?
|1 week 2 days ago||That's||
a great idea. I know he likes to identify with specific players (he's always Denard in NCAA14) - but having one that is made for him might be more special!
|1 week 2 days ago||Not nearly||
as much as I would like. He's like I was growing up - all I cared about was football. Baseball, Basketball, Hockey...all just on the wayside until playoffs/tournaments. I'll work on that though...good point!
