I believe it's possible for people to re-evaluate their stance after an event as likely frustrating as the Battle/Langford situation was.
|21 hours 17 min ago||Was an interesting tidbit indeed.||
Davis reclassifying only allows you to take your PG in 2016. Then I think you start looking at an expectation that someone is going pro after this season (likely Irvin). Going to be interesting beyond that.
That said, I'm all for taking another wing in 2016 if it means we can get Coffey or Bridges.
|1 day 12 hours ago||I missed these.||
Glad they are back.
|1 week 2 days ago||I had forgotten||
How quickly I could scroll through and skim who picked whom.
|2 weeks 16 hours ago||Didn't see the Coffey tweet, so didn't know if I could say it.||
But wow his film looks great. I'd actually prefer him as a SG/wing prospect in the class over Battle. Maybe not as much as Langford, but his film looks great. I guess the question is if the ACL potentially becomes a larger issue. Hopefully not.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||We knew||
a lot of the rumblings, but maybe soon we will start getting some clarity on what that was all about. I am buckling down for this one.

is why I think the SEC and ACC can go stuff their opinions on satellite camps.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||In after||
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Yeah,||
At this point I think I can point to nearly any fandom of any book series, video game, tv show, movie, etc. and find a lot of divisive discussion at play. I understand they are "fanatics" and not "rationals" but it feels slightly worse now than in recent memory.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Some interesting videos||
on HBO's youtube channel. Some 30 second character spots for the four main actors (Farrell, McAdams, Vaughn, and Kitsch). Have to say they got me a little more excited for learning more about the other characters than I was before.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Will be compared to Season 1||
By pretty much everyone early on. In that sense it's probably a small step down so far, but it's still very enjoyable TV. I will say I latched onto Colin Farrell's character really quickly, so I'm invested in figuring out how that develops. Will have to wait and see on the other characters.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Jon Teske||
was a plan A type kid as he was offered day 1 by the coaching staff. They got him. Just because he isn't as highly touted as Battle does not mean he wasn't the staff's top choice for the position.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||That's it folks||
No confirmed spoilers left for book readers to spoil for you guys. Now you just have to be wary of theory territory.

You were beaten by 3 posts. "Summer Swarm 2016 taking shape"
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Word is||
Both schools may be better off just not getting involved. He's an amazing talent, truly amazing, but sounds like there's other things to address.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||I thought the same at first||
But it is indeed a word.
|8 weeks 14 hours ago||Looks like||
Get it through the uprights at a weird angle indeed. Also then looked like Brandon Peters was the runner up (based on the picture below and the outfits I could see while watching).

"Wagner's enrollment at Michigan will require him to pass the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). Asked by MLive if he's taken and passed the test, Wagner omitted the question from his series of answers"
EDIT: I don't say this to stoke rumors of Wagner not making it in when he expects, but to be truthful to the content of the post as I read it.

I'd actually say I've done admirably well in not commenting on these for this season. I honestly try to walk a line between offering insight and comments. Thankfully we will be leaving the books soon so my inputs will be worth less than a damn
If you want someting substantive here goes:
Friggin love that we got the full song of "The Dornishman's Wife" between this episode and one episode prior.
I actually had the first Sand Snake Scene that I didn't cringe at.
Tyrion + Dany = ??
Can anyone else give credit to Cersei this season? I wil admit they seemed to shoehorn in her "this is why you should like me" stuff for this episode with Tommen, but I still didn't dislike it.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||Been a while since I posted on one of these||
but man was that a great episode. The showrunners have definitely gotten better season after season of focusing on specific areas of the world for longer chunks to help each story breathe a bit. That is so much preferred to the hopping around they had been doing in seasons 2 and even 3. If I may say so, Cersei's actress stole the show this episode.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||I think it's a social media thing.||
There was a Louisville player who did the same thing first and posted it online and got positive feedback.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||Guys,||
I'm going to make a bold predction. We will be better at the basketballs this season than this past season. Assuming everyone stays healthy *fingers crossed*.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||This whole season feels very strong so far||
Lots of good tidbits and it really does seem they are jumping around less and less and trying to give each scene more time to "breath" which I like.
|13 weeks 3 days ago||Scout Update on Brown|
|13 weeks 3 days ago||It worked for Harbaugh||
I'll take it.
|14 weeks 2 days ago||Smash it||
and bang it.
|14 weeks 2 days ago||Thank you||
for reminding me this existed.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||Yup, understand||
Just implying to your point that even though he's 2016, he may reclassify and be 2017 (which would save a scholly for 2016-2017) or not see the floor until 2017 after redshirt.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||Something I did not realize||
is that he is only 16 right now. Being young for your class is indeed something Beilein has said he values, and may mean that he wanted to lock up a big for the 2017 class right now. Obviously that's coming at the cost of a scholarship spot, but I'm willing to wait untli next offseason before I pass judgment on taking this committment. Even if my reaction right now is that of a bit of surprise.
