my only gripe? it's about 9 hours too short.
|3 years 29 weeks ago||Crawfish Monica||
I'm serious. This is the best stuff ever. Had it at Jazzfest about 5 years ago. Easy recipe- look it up on the google. Is a spicy/creamy mac&cheese basically (not sure if there is any actual cheese in it). you should be able to get crawfish tails from your local fishmonger or grocer. If not? subsitute shrimp or king crab, but it's just not the same without the crawfish. Make up a big pot of this stuff or bake it in a foil pan and just spoon it into styrofoam bowls.
best. food. item. ever.
|4 years 30 weeks ago||Uh?||
You just named TWO kids that have ever played a down at the position. DL was a huge need for us this was a big miss. You're siting a current recruit in our two-deep at DE and calling that adequate depth?
|4 years 30 weeks ago||Needs||
To get those test scores way way up to get past newu admissions. Until then, any intentions to commit are irrelevant.
You're not going to see RR spending a lot of cachet points on a borderline slot. Nor should he.

where he stood up against collegiate powerhouses like davidson college.
|4 years 36 weeks ago||quarterback||
quarterback is the lifeblood of any rodriguez team. you're see that this year with denard. like another poster said, on some of these cats, you're going to miss. to make sure the numbers are right, you take one every year. you cant end up with another threet/sheridan.

but they do have a new 24hour fantasy sports channel if that is your thing. just launched a couple months ago. one of my groomsmen, a buddy from high school, runs the channel. truly a 'dream job' if i've ever heard of one. if you're into fantasy sports, you should check it out.
|5 years 9 weeks ago||fwiw||
i didnt think your criticism was offbase.
|5 years 9 weeks ago||oversigning.com||
the second coolest blog on the internet after mgoblog.com.
magnus, you should read this site top-to-bottom and then reassess your opinion of saban and all his success. aligning yourself there is sort of like being a yankees fan and then telling a pittsburgh pirates fan that their team sucks.
seriously, read it. if you were anything but a top25 blue chip recruit, i dont think there is a shot in hell you would want to goto alabama.
|5 years 18 weeks ago||even funnier the second||
even funnier the second time... lol.
|5 years 19 weeks ago||iirc, he's already been here.||
iirc, he's already been here. sounds like we just need to get moms sorted out. thats up to RR and sweet ricardo.
|5 years 19 weeks ago||if we fire RR, we're doomed.||
if we fire RR, we're doomed. will be program armageddon.
|5 years 19 weeks ago||fantastic interview tom.||
fantastic interview tom. nice work.
|5 years 20 weeks ago||why would you post that here?||
that is some of the dumbest shit ive ever seen and completely inappropriate.
|5 years 24 weeks ago||EMU to Cuse is NOT a lateral move||
especially when referencing a running backs coach. they are THE running back U. congrats to tyrone.
|5 years 25 weeks ago||you mean ortman?||
dorrestein has another year
|5 years 26 weeks ago||dollar and a dream!!!||
mega lotto at 121mm.
|5 years 26 weeks ago||no concern||
from anyone on the part about terrence still needing to get his SAT in order this late in the game?
|5 years 26 weeks ago||bizarre||
proliferation of the high school GPA arms race. i went to one school where A+/A/A- in honors was 5.0/4.5/4.0. another where A+/A/A- was 4.33/4.00/3.66. whats the point?
soon high schools will be giving out an 8.0 for a A+++ in special honors program that youll need to pay 20K to be in in high school. just so you can have your 8.0 GPA and be better than the neighbor's kid.
what a world we live in. please dont neg me for this rant.
|5 years 26 weeks ago||great post||
|5 years 27 weeks ago||stand by me...||
chopper. sick balls.
|5 years 27 weeks ago||grey shirt||
potentially the biggest factor here is, who has the means to be one? would love to have all these kids on the team pronto, but if someone needs to step up, who will that be?
i think the answer to that is: who can afford to be? am i wrong? whoever ponys up for the grey shirt, they'd be on the hook for their freshman tuition? for an OOS kid, isn't that about 35K? i dont know the backgrounds of most in the class, but there are quite a few that cant afford that if i had to guess. Jeremy Jackson is probably the only one I think for sure could, but with him an early enrollee, is that even possible logistically? To practice with the team during spring etc then not be on the team in the fall for a season?
otherwise, the second group that would come to mind would be vinopal and ryan. they attend private schools and pay (in ryan's case) 12K/year tuition in high school. i think thats why you see vinopal's name come up for a redshirt.
hopefully it doesnt come to that, but resources could be the biggest driver.
some of these kids would probably take a greyshirt, but just cant afford one. its a lot of money to ask a family to put forth, especially when they have full rides offered to them by other schools.
|5 years 28 weeks ago||where had you hear that?||
|5 years 28 weeks ago||i hear you about banking ships but...||
thats usually the course for someone who has the time to let the players percolate. rich's back is up against the wall and he needs players on campus NOW going through development. we just dont have 3 years for next years players to get up to speed. we banked ships last year and i truly believe it hurt us. a kid like dan mason who we couldve had, had we pushed likely wouldve seen the field some this year and would be well developed to really contribute next year.
2011 looks like a solid recruiting class in terms of depth. would love to have 20+ ships in hand, but it does us no good if we're in full swing meltdown by the time we get there. rich needs players asap.
|5 years 28 weeks ago||names to keep an eye on imo:||
honorable mention (i still dont see it happening): dillon baxter
i would think parker and thomas are our best chance to finish with 25.
i would also add, that i would be surprised to see us sign 28. from here, i'd expect on 3 more recruits (26). if we go above that, it would be for a mehrer to greyshirt while possibly asking one or two of the existing commits to greyshirt.
my only hope is that they dont bank any ships. there is a attrition stewing on this squad already imo, and we need player development to start NOW. while a grey cant practice or workout with the team, there is a lot of benefit to a greyshirt being on campus and a lot of the redshirt physical development one would normally expect will happen this way imo.
|5 years 28 weeks ago||confused me more...||
are your 2008/2009 a hypothetical set? those dont look like familiar actual numbers. how do you see it for us now with drake/witty out?
|5 years 28 weeks ago||do you know this to be accurate? or are these your assumptions?||
the numbers almost seem plausible- they just conflict some with whats been said lately.
|5 years 28 weeks ago||but then i dont get it?||
what is the 28 rule then? its def a big10 rule of some sort.
|5 years 28 weeks ago||thanks irish, but im still confused...||
so the number is 28? but what, we can only enroll 25 come aug1? what about in the scenario where we only signed 22 last year?
so in the end, is it 25? or is it more?
|5 years 28 weeks ago||dont get too excited...||
dont they usually hang around to find out who the new coach is going to be? kindof get 're-recruited' etc. if usc makes a power replacement hire, do we expect a change here? how close was he to seriously not picking usc to begin with?
the early enrollee thing certainly adds a neat twist.
