"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."

Mel was my neighbor on lakeview court. I was his paper boy and he used to invite me over after route was done to play 2x2 bball in driveway w him, Lem and Charlie. Pretty amazing athletes (especially Lem).
|1 year 4 weeks ago||harbaugh||
lots of way way over the top anticipation around harbaugh. why in the world would he ever come back ? If he left SF (where he will probably stay), he would pretty much have his choice of open HC jobs -- Oak, Miami, Bears, Jets, Giants. as has been pointed out here several times, failing NFL coaches go back -- successful ones do not.

Hear hear -- completely agree. Harmon stands alone in the Michigan pantheon. He defined Michigan football and was the dominant player in all of college football. This number shouldn't be given on the come to a first time starter (DG), a scrappy kid (dileo), it should only be given to a proven all American -- only one possible choice.

Wow -- Dave Baxter (25) -- was pretty amazing to watch him run up and down the court. Memory lane.

dont know about the visit, but its been pouring rain here (LA) all day and about 50 degrees. Not an I Love LA day...at least Ty won't choose b/c of better weather
|4 years 3 weeks ago||zingermans||
is better than all NY/LA. Maize and Blue is like Carnegie -- huge, huge sandwitches -- good, but not great. Zingermans is better than Katz's and way better than Langer's (hate that place)
|4 years 13 weeks ago||O'Brien||
O'Brien (and Pipkens) were WAY better on tape and in camps than Shittu.
Really want O'Brien.

you should check out the commentary on bucknuts....generally they think the penalty was too HARSH...its great for a quick laugh
|4 years 20 weeks ago||silent recruit||
forgive my newbie status -- I know what a slient recruit is, but I dont know why. Why is it in anyone's interest to be slient ? what is the player or school getting out of it ?
Been reading that Kalis is or maybe a silent recruit...and I just dont get it.
|4 years 22 weeks ago||He's just a kid||
I grew 6" between jr and sr year in high school, practiced at a whole different level, worked out differently -- and went from 8th man to starter and all conference...
Point his that Jeremy is just a kid -- not all of these guys are full developed athletes at 16 -- its very possible that he's much better as a senior
|4 years 22 weeks ago||damn||
forgot wilson. slot him in at 4
|4 years 22 weeks ago||Pipkins, Pipkins, Pipkins||
8. Hold for random 5 Star
|4 years 22 weeks ago||Peat has another brother||
Little brother is going into 9th grade -- 6'3" 220 lb QB (think Cam Newton). Named Cassius. Great name. Said to be the best athlete of the family.
|4 years 22 weeks ago||love that guy||
love the formula -- he should have his own blog !
|4 years 22 weeks ago||true, but||
sure, godin would benefit from college level weight training....but can you imagine Pipkins and O'Brien with that same training ?
|4 years 22 weeks ago||my totally made up view||
Since we are all shooting in the dark...
RB/FB: I think they offered Hill b/c they dont think they have much of a chance with the other running backs and want to really focus on Ohio for now and future.
DL/OL: They have several 4+ star highly nationally recruited guys lined up. Some will go elsewhere. Best to keep them all in play
DE: They really like Wormley
S: They really like Wilson -- turned away the two corners to focus on him
QB: Do need a QB in each class
WR: This one I cant figure out. They definitely need a big receiver and other than Stanford and Burbridge, there doesnt seem to be any heat here -- they are listed for several of the top guys, but they sure dont seem to be visiting, tweeting or thinking GBOD.
|4 years 22 weeks ago||great football instincts||
from these clips, looks like Alden has great vision/instincts -- can find the openings, follow blockers, etc. Stuff you can't teach. I like a big guy that can do that
|4 years 22 weeks ago||Lineup fillers||
Love the 5 big guys and for sake of argument, will give Jackson a pass. The problem is that the other 3 spots need to be filled with guys that can hit .250-275, provide a little speed or power...something. Not asking that we have a Red Sox lineup -- just that the other 3 spots in the lineup have been black holes of doom. Raburn is probably about the worst hitter in the league -- Figgins has been worse, but he at least has a little speed and isnt a complete disaster in the field. Dirks, Wells, Worth, Maggy, Santiago...feh
|4 years 22 weeks ago||game last night||
I was also at the game last night (huge showing of Tiger fans). What struck me was how weird of a lineup and collection of talent -- they have huge "A" talent in Cabrera, Martinez, Avila, Bosch (maybe)...then really no "B" talent -- everyone else is "C" or below. With Raburn -- horrible, Dirks, Santiago, Kelly in the starting lineup -- I dont know how you can consistently win with that team
|4 years 23 weeks ago||Pipkins, Pipkins, Pipkins||
WOW -- seen many cutouts/clips of all of these camps -- but nothing this impressive -- Pipkins is WAY better than the rest. Johnson/O'Brien both pretty good -- but Godin seemed like a small child compared to these guys.
