FWIW - at the U of D Jesuit - MLK hoops game a week ago, Hill was dressed head to toe in Michigan clothes. Corley, also in attendance, was in "street" clothes

We have a real shot at this QUALITY kid. Our challenge isn't MSU, it is out of state schools with great academic credentials. I'm told Cassius is a 4.0 student which is really difficult to do at U of D. (Or anywhere else)
Beilen and crew are all over this guy. If he doesn't go Blue look to see him at Duke or UNC.
We need Jordan Morgan to go on the recruiting trail for Cassius!
Go Blue! Go Cubs!

In the new #15 5 Hour Energy car!
If you take a Big 10 angle, Ryan Newman is a Purdue grad (and I think the only driver with a college degree)
I hope the weather cooperates and they get the race in

we had pre-game field passes for the Gator Bowl. My twelve year old son really only wanted to get a shout out from one player and it was Jack Kennedy! He never got over by our sideline so it never happened but note that there are some fans that recognize the hard working team members.
He did get to talk with JT Floyd (and get a picture), another one of his favorite players. Floyd is a really classy young man. Hopefully the injury bug is behind him this year and he has a great season.

assess the existing talent and keep the good ones. That way they have some continuity for the transition versus starting over from scratch. "Your own guys" don't know everything, nor do they have the relationships with the 'rank and file' (in this case the players). We've seen how well starting off with a 'clean slate' with respect to the leadership (coaches) can work.
The smart coporate guys don't piss all over what they've just taken over... Most times the answer is somewhere in the middle.

because the soccer coach wanted him focused on soccer. I believe the football coaches would have loved to have him on the team.
|5 years 21 weeks ago||I can't say that I am a big band fan but..||
the last time we went to the Gator Bowl, ourfootball team went out and kicked ass against a team from the State of Mississippi - then at Halftime our band went out and kicked their band's ass. Hopefully we can have similar results with the other Mississippi school!
|5 years 22 weeks ago||Yep||
then we hired a new coach, 'rebuilt', then did not go to a bowl the next two years. A trend?!!!
|5 years 22 weeks ago||The Gator Bowl wants Michigan||
Their dream matchup is Michigan vs Florida. If they don't get Michigan they will take Penn State.
- Michigan has a huge alumni population in Florida.
- After a couple of cold weeks in Michigan, the local fan base will find the Jacksonville weather much better than here.
- Denard and our offense will be a big TV draw
See y'all in Jacksonville. Nice New Years Eve party on the river and a much nicer stadium since we whipped Ole Miss in our last trip to the Gator Bowl.
|7 years 25 weeks ago||I just got back from the LSU||
I just got back from the LSU - Alabama game (and posted a report). I have to disagree with the LSU tailgating experience. I thought it was weak. In stadium noise clearly beat the big house but I'll take a rainy day tailgating in A2 over a sunny day tailgating in baton rouge any day (it was 75 without a cloud in the sky)
I wish our fans were louder but all-in-all we are top 10 at a minimum and maybe top 5.
