Michigan didn't seem to be the frontrunner in the article to be honest. Just the vibe of the article suggests he's taking the visit but not going there to commit. Who knows...

It makes you appreciate the sacrifice a coach's family makes. Alabama-Michigan-Florida in 3 years.

Based on some of the horrific, anti-semetic remarks that Jeff Moss has made on twitter, I would perhaps refrain from citing him as a reputable source.

When I think of viable options at HC. Meaning, the home run picks (Harbaugh, Miles) fall short. And you try to determine the most high profile guy who is most willing to accept the job, I think the name that comes up is Schiano.

My sources are telling me that Gregg Henson doesn't have valid sources. I can't disclose too much information right now, but when I hear more, I will definitely pass on more news.
Needless to say, my sources are typically right and they usually don't change their mind (but if they do, I will let you know). For the time being, my sources are rock solid.

Originally verbaled to Bama (Mack Brown guest-starred as a recruiter). He then tried to walk on at A&M but ultimately became a star at TMU.

The #18 player (5*) according to Scout has a dream offer and it's Michigan.
Lorenz interviewed him (I think PREMIUM). Very interesting.

Since when is making money a bad thing in general?
Bama produces more first rounders than any other team. First rounders make money. It's OK to want to make money as a professional.

Why would LSU agree to play in Houston? Simple. Recruiting.

I'd probably rank JJ Watt #4.

I thought last week was a set up episode. And the more you have set up episodes consecutively, the more you realize neither were supposed to be set up episodes. It's like the final season of Lost when I began convincing myself that there were 6 set up episodes in a row because I didn't want to convince myself that I didn't like the episodes. I'm just saying, this one episode wasn't great. The Jesse for dinner scene was great (albeit perhaps a bit overacted). I hope we get the suspense back next week.

Did anyone else think it was the weakest episode of the season?

|2 years 28 weeks ago||I don't get the Beckman "sleazy" talk||
What is wrong with accepting transfers from another B1G school? Some people suggest this is somehow sketchy.
We try to pry away B1G commitments all the time. But once they join a school, it's considered "ungentlemanly" to accept a transfer? Are you in favor of the Gentleman's Agreement that nobody subscribes to?
I get it. The 5 or 6 IL coaches at Penn State gave them a bad rep. But let's just be objective for a moment and not go down the road of saying "every other coach is dirty but ours." Beckman is starting at a new program and trying to build up the talent. I don't think he's done anything wrong.
I'm not suggesting this particular thread is hitting Beckman too hard. But just in general.

Eric Crouch won a heisman. Frazier was probably the best. I know those Oklahoma teams of the 80s had some great running QBs.
|2 years 33 weeks ago||Its possible||
This is possible, but it also becomes a fine line. So if a recruiting service says "we need to re-evaulate a player" there is already a bias towards improving his stock in my mind. So then this becomes semantics (is re-ranking based on other site or "re-evaluation").
And again, its merely a hedge. Rivals still has Green much higher. But Scout is at least making Green a top player now.
I actually think that ESPN uses the most independence in its rankings. For better or worse.
|2 years 33 weeks ago||Hedge and etc.||
I get the feeling that alot of the re-rankings are to hedge against other recruiting services having a guy really high or low.
For instance, from all reports, I don't think Derrick Green stood out at the Opening. Not that he was bad, but that he wasn't creating much buzz. But Rivals has him as the #1 RB now. So Scout moves him up around 80 spots. Same issue with Taco where all the other services had him as a 4* except Scout.
On the Taco front, people have been hitting Farrell about his assessment and how Rivals had him dropping whereas Scout (and others) had him on the rise. Well, Scout originally had him as the #29 player in Ohio and a 3* whereas Rivals had him ranked as a top 250 player. So you have to consider where he was originally ranked before judging how to evaluate his stock rising/falling.
And of course, none of the recruiting services for a particular school want to tell their fan base that a commitment performed poorly at a camp. You're rarely going to hear it straight up. So it's hard to get an objective evaluation about how these kids perform.
