If Herbert adds 20-300 pounds of muscle... man. A 550lb pulling guard? Put him at NT? Even if he only adds 150 pounds of muscle... that'll be one strong DUDE.

Ha! First, I'd want to know Dave Brandon's thoughts on the nickname. If he likes it - I'm willing to walk away from it!

The Pizza Oven or just The Oven?
|13 weeks 6 days ago||What do you mean by||
What do you mean by stretching to the max? Isn't the rule for being granted a 6th year that you must first have graduated? And that if Knox/Davis/other guy graduate in May, they will have done so within the 5 years? And that you can't even apply for a 6th year until you've graduated, which is why the players/school has not yet petitioned for the extra year?

I'd love to see MSU fall on their face for this too - but could the players have been named "Scout Team Member of the Week" for their film study/study habits? Something not necessarily physical?
|14 weeks 4 days ago||On Davis/MSU||
Doesn't it stand to reason that MSU feels very cofidently in getting Davis a 6th year - because if they don't, they would have cost him a shot at going in this year's NFL Draft. If the decision on Ott was late (whoever is to blame for that) - the decision on Davis will come much later (I believe he has to first officially graduate in the spring). So MSU either knows he'll be back provided he graduates, or Davis is running a huge risk of costing himself a year of pro ball.

So 11 states = he only needs the smartest person in half of those states every year to have 20 on his roster.

So if Stanford has 20 kids on the roster from SEC states and there are what - 8 SEC states (TX, TN, SC, FL, LA, MS, AL, GA) that means he's getting the smartest kid from 5 of those states every year.

They would only count if they are still here a year from now. A year of paying their own way, not getting much PT (or any at all) and seeing another recruiting class coming in behind you... might mean you start to look to transfer for more PT yourself.
Lots of things can happen between now and then.

That makes 3 Michigan schools sponsord by Jordan (Mich, Oak, Hillsdale) - but not MSU! Ha!
Seriously though - the wiki link (again, veracity unverified) says Oakland, Wright St and Fresno St are sponsored. So I would assume they are on a different level from Hillsdale. But not on the same level as UNC, Cal, Marquette, G'Town, Mich.
I guess I'm wondering how the levels work and why Jordan Brand gets out of OU, WSU, FSU? Because attaching those three names seems to slightly devalue the Jordan association.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||Jumpman Sponsor||
Accoriding to the internet (never wrong!), the Jordan Brand also sponsors Oakland U, Fresno State and Wright State. Which seems very odd to me. They don't exactly fall in line with UNC, G'Town, D-Wade U and Cal.
Any idea how those schools got associated with the Jumpman? Are they buying their own stuff?
|1 year 14 weeks ago||Detroit Southwestern in 1990||
Detroit Southwestern in 1990 had 3 NBA players on it - Rose, Voshon Lenard and Howard Eisley.
The Indiana high school that had Conley and Oden was pretty good.
|1 year 21 weeks ago||Agree||
Partially responsible for sure. They had no trouble accepting the good will of the homeless walk-on profiles. The least they could have done was hold a scholarship for him when one opened up.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||More moves?||
This offer has to mean a transfer is coming, right? Add this kid and then you are done with the '15 class and only have 1 spot remaining in the '16 class. And the '16 class (which already has Teske) needs to find the replacements for Walton and Irvin.
Next Year's Lineup:
The following season:
Dawkins/ONE OPEN SPOT for a 2/3
We'd go from a guard heavy team to a having hardly any guards/wings in a hurry.

Furthermore, naturally existing stratification between the walk-ons and the scholarship players are reinforced by the NCAA itself. The post-practice meal is a buffet inside the Pittman Room at the Casanova Center. Between practice and study hall, players get treatment and help themselves to dinner, a rare time to unwind and bond as a team. However, players who are not on scholarship are not allowed to have their food paid for by the school, as it is deemed an extra benefit per NCAA regulations. If they wish to eat the post-practice meal, they must pay for it themselves. Otherwise, they must leave and eat dinner at home. Federico was fortunate enough that his parents would pay for his meals. Brown and DePalo would not be eating with the team.
So - they have the option of training table, but it's not free. I beleive there are other "perks" similar to this that walk-ons don't get to take full advantage of.

Also - walk-ons, I believe, don't get all of the same perks that scholarship players get. Things like training table, etc. TWJ, or anyone else for that matter, is not going to pass on those perks just to help Michigan gain an extra 'ship.
|1 year 28 weeks ago||Buy Out||
Could further try and minimize cost of firing Ferentz by offering a buy out. $2.66 million a year for 5 years? How about $5 million now, to quit and $5 million two years from now. Or something similar.
Now - Ferentz doesn't have to agree to that - but maybe he would.

For using a scale of 1-5, they sure seem to use a lot of 0's and 0.5's.
|1 year 39 weeks ago||Chart||
Am I reading your wins chart correctly? An 80% chance of beating App State, but 75% for Utah and 90% for Minnesota? Those numbers don't seem right at all, even without the benefit of hindsight.
|1 year 40 weeks ago||I agree with all of this.||
I agree with all of this. The other risk you run with calling a time-out is a defensive penalty. Move them up 10-15 yards and then give them another crack at a free play. Calling it right away or not at all were the choices to choose between.
|1 year 40 weeks ago||it was.||
Indeed it was. But it's not simply Delonte Hollowell. It's ALL-CAPS DELONTE HOLLOWELL! Fot the number of times Brian has retweeted or referenced the ALL-CAPS!!, I would have thought he would have known it wasn't Lewis.

In his first year at Arizona, he won 5 of his last 7 games (including a bowl game win).
Last year was worse, 3-3 in final 6 (5-3 in final 8)... including a bowl win.
He's also got 4 conference roads wins in 2.333 years. Including at Oregon. (And he won at home against Oregon).
He's far surpassed what he did at Michigan and the wheels coming off this year or not don't prove otherwise.
