|18 weeks 5 days ago||You wouldn't think so, since||
You wouldn't think so, since Knox was named scout team defensive player of the week during both week 5 and week 10 of his freshman year -- a year in which he ostensibly redshirted for medical reasons. If they are claiming something else, I have no idea what the hell it could be.
It seems like a straightforward case, but the early optimism out of EL and the overall inability of the NCAA to do anything competently makes me think it's closer to 50/50.
|18 weeks 6 days ago||Their DL should still be||
Their DL should still be solid. On one side they'll likely start 4th year Demetrius Cooper, who's been generating buzz for a while but was kind of trapped behind Calhoun's 8 year career. Damon Knox will probably get a 6th year, since pretending everyone has an incapacitating injury during any redshirt year is now accepted practice. McDowell is back and remains a good player and a bad college-picker. The other DE is a bit of a mystery. 5th year Evan Jones seems to be the front runner, but someone like Josh King could steal that job away. Regardless, a 5th year bastard in Dantonio's system won't be too terrible if it turns out Jones is the best they've got.
But between this and graduation, their depth is pretty well shot. They have zero junior or senior reserves on the DL. If Knox doesn't get a 6th year or if a starter gets injured, it'll be weird guy time, and pronto.

I wasn't aware that any UM people were associated with the legal profession. Good to know.

What are the specific metrics that prevent M from being in the top 15 or so? My guess is acceptance rate and endowment/spending per student. Has anyone here really dug into the USNWR formula?

Not a perfect match, but there's also Hidden Valley Club apartments which are near the south state street commuter lot. It's about 2 miles from there to central campus. The 36 bus, which generally runs every 10-15 mins, picks up at that lot and goes directly to central campus. They definitely have 1BR, not sure about studios. Also, they aren't very fancy.

Okay, so you hold the popular and ethical high ground, own the fricking pulpit, and your best strategy is to sue? This is like pulling the goalie when you are ahead.

He's also the teammate of future 4 or 5* Brian "Tugs" Bowen, a 6-7 wing in the c/o 2017. Bowen is a cousin of Jason Richardson, so he's also a presumed MSU lean, unfortunately.

Acceptance rates seem to have limited meaning re: desirability until you reach the elite schools. Last year, Central Michigan's acceptance rate was actually 6 percentage points lower than MSU's.

You've brought him up a number of times. Were there indications that he was ever a realistic option for Michigan? Or that he'll attend college in the U.S. at all? I don't follow bball recruiting too closely.

If I'm not mistaken, UM under Beilein has has as many early entrants to the NBA as Izzo has had in roughly 20 years at MSU. Izzo has made himself a legend by turning 3-stars and 5-stars into 4-stars.
