I just refreshed as I was going back to do some work in excel and damnit if there isn't more content.

Anyone in the DC area who wants to meet up some time this year, we can schedule something. Either a bar or someone hosting (I don't mind hosting) is cool with me. [email protected]

things about football season! I tried 3 of the recipe's last year and all were awesome.
|4 days 10 hours ago||I played a couple years||
in little league, middle school, 1 year in high school. Played soccer and basketball from age 6 until 17. Also played tennis and ran track. Grew 9 inches in high school and only gained about 35 lbs, so I went from solid tb/mlb to 150lb wr/s. And my senior year I went to a high school that had probably 10-15 D1 guys, and even more D2 guys. I wasn't interested in spending my senior year in a wheelchair.
Coached little league football and basketball, assistant wr /db coach for a year in high school.
My playing days now consist of flag football, which is competitive in the DMV area. Antwan Randle-El qb's in our league, few NFL flame outs, couple retired players, number of former D1 players and A LOT of D2, D3 guys. Also about 50% IT guys, gov't contractors, and folks who went pro in something other than sports.

I was going to look it up but as usual MGOBLOG answers all my life questions.

Luck vs Barkley was probably the best quarterbacking I've ever seen in a college game. Pro-style qbs i should add..

|4 weeks 9 hours ago||A bit of everything||
I got married earlier this year, so adjusting to married life. I am preparing for CPA study/prep in 2017, which unfortunately has become an interest. Football of course, even coaching little league. PS4 when I'm free, taking up golf and loving it. Lot of comedy shows. Living in DC provides a lot of options for new things.

This is the budget for U of M. It has a breakdown of all the expenses.

for those who don't want to click, it's a chant by Rapper Mike Jones in a song or two of his.
|10 weeks 8 hours ago||Sounds good||
And I have considered myself. I'm also in the DC area, and my Comcast bill is $150 per month, but I have every channel they offer and I have the X1 box which really is fantastic.
The only thing I really watch are sports and movies. Plus have the Blast Internet that Comcast offers come sout to $80 per month. So throw in the PS Vue, and subscriptions to Netflix, HBO, Cinemax, Starz, and Showtime, am I coming out cheaper?

Just got back from my honeymoon in Santorini. Most beautiful place I've ever seen
|11 weeks 5 days ago||Sounds like a new thread...||
I ended up with -126 points the first time I commented. It was something along the lines of thinking Urban Meyer should be approached for the HC job if he were available because I thought (and still do think) he is one of the best offensive minds and recruiters in football.
Needless to say, even before he was the OSU coach, he wasn't popular around here. I almost swore off MGO cause I was so pissed lol.

If you area Rutgers fan or student, don't you need something to get excited about? Why not pick a fight, take a stand, instill some pride.

No pics of the prospect??

Interesting, I didn't watch but if what you're saying is correct, I'd agree with you completely.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||I agree with a lot of this||
There are a few things at play here.
Take your typical 6'0 mobile qb in college who won't play qb in the NFL. Is he better served playing cb or wr? now you are taking 6/7 roster spots per team vs nearly 20-25 if you count fs,cb, tb, wr. if not more.
Going to the right high school/camps, and playing for the right coach. Case in point, Do you Josh Metellus is at Michigan if he is at a 3* high school in western Florida?
If his family doesn't have the ability to travel to get scholarships offers?
Despite everyone's opinion, the NFL still only has 17% of it's players that have "elite" athletes in their family. So I would expect that the answer would be hard work more than genetics.
How many players on the roster have you heard about having elite bloodlines? Peppers, who is the best athlete on the team, arguably? J. Lewis? Any of the running backs? Jake Butt?

be a legit reason for optimism. Height helps in most cases, especially in volleyball and basketball.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||yes...||
and he is incredibly fast
|12 weeks 6 days ago||You sound naive...||
Do you know how many kids are held back in school? Depending on what month you're born in, determines when you can start school, and there is a gray area, usually sept/oct where you can go either way. So you can have an undersized, under-developed physically and mentally kid compared to his classmates, or you can hold him back so that he will be the same age as everyone.
And yes, I certinly would. I was 5'3 in 9th grade. I would expect my son to be similar. If I thought he had the desire and a legitimate opportunity to not have to pay for college? why would I not start him a year later in school? Offending your sensibilities would be well worth a $20k to $100k college education.
Scholarship might be JUST football for you, but it means a lot more to a lot of people, ie: the value of a free college education. More parents train their kids to get free school than to get a professional athlete.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||my only debate with this...||
is how much of athletic ability is genes, and how much is training? If you are naturally a flabby 275, but at age 17 you hit the weight room, and get to a svelte 305, and shave a half-second off your 40 time...that muscle and speed isn't in your genes. Now being 275 is genetic, but that alone isn't enough.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||Well...||

It'll be someone who doesn't have to reach for a P5 gig. Plenty will open up next year, why deal with whatever issues are coming. Maybe someone under the radar or overlooked for P5 jobs may take it and be in over there head. Or get a pro coordinator who needs 2 years before a Hc spot like BoB.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||It could be statistically. 3||
It could be statistically. 3 cupcakes which could result in a total and some weak or rebuilding B1G offenses, could statistically put M in elite company. Outside of OSU, who is the best offensive player we'll face all year? Any teams other than OSU that wouldn't cause extreme outrage if they scored 28?
|13 weeks 5 days ago||It may not be Harbaugh,...||
But it will be someone. Coaches don't grow on trees, and regardless of what he did, no one will care in 6 months. Tressell is worshipped at OSU and is now working at another University. JoePa will be a legend until the end of time in parts of PA. He'll get a QC job, or analyst position before long...maybe not another HC job. But then again, if you're a mid-major and you can get Art Briles for cheap? Not advocating, but would anyone be surprised?
|13 weeks 5 days ago||Quite true||
Receivers are also dependent on QB ability to be successful. To really take a look, you would have to look at the qb situation they were drafted into.
And Randy Moss wasn't drafted into a dynamic offense, they BECAME dynamic because he was such a talent.
The biggest transitions in the NFL at WR are route running and separation, which is easier at the college level. Julio was always an athletic freak, so was Moss. But guys that are 6'1 needs to run excellent routes and be quick twitch because every corner in your division is better than 10 of 12 teams you played in college.

Indiana has a Duke grad transfer at CB too right? Everett something, played with one of their rb's in high school w D Hand. Think he was #2 at Duke

At a game back in 06 I met a guy who was an AD at a private Ohio high school, and his first move to was to change the school helmet to a winged helmet. I can't remember what school he was in, but obviously a huge Michigan fan in the heart of Ohio. He said people were sending him death threats over it.
