Really interested to see how Hack responds this year. Most everyone was all over him after his freshman year, but he was really the beneficiary of Allen Robinson and a lot of screen passes. Sophomore slump was predictable. We'll see if he can put it together as an upperclassman.

You mean ESPN sucks except when they rate a UM prospect higher than everyone else.
|2 days 6 hours ago||Good point. I actually||
Good point. I actually admire Mayweather quite a boy because no one owns a piece of him. Probably why he has so much damn money.
|2 days 7 hours ago||No. No, no, no, no, no, no,||
No. No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. Again, there's like 400x more 2-3 stars than 4-5 stars. Yet the raw numbers were about equal. This it is far more like to get drafted in the 1st round as a 4-5 star than a 2-3. It is absolutely a validation of recruiting rankings in aggregate.

Huh, I thought Uncle S provided a lot of the roads, infrastructure, public safety officers, etc, to make this event possible in the first place. But I guess not; guess he's just an evil menace sitting in a dark room cackling with glee.

Who do I have? The promoters. They're the real winners here.

Eh, I don't care that much, but even though I don't follow boxing closely, the significance of this fight is not lost on me. I am just not willing to pay the cost to watch it. But that's because I'm just cheap. I absolutely love UM football, but I'm unwilling to pay the $5 extra dollors for the B1G network. If there was a bar around me that was just charging like a $10 cover to watch it, I would do it.
|3 days 2 hours ago||I don't want to be just the||
I don't want to be just the next in a long history of exclaiming 'this is the last great fight ever'...but man, this may be the last great fight ever. True, this would have been a better fight like 4 years ago, but still, with popularity pugalisim declining (at least in America), you're just not going to see the talent in the ring anymore I don't think. So maybe now is the time to actually milk it for all it's worth?

Late first? The Horford family says he's a high first rounder. He just wasn't getting his opportunities with Donovan at Florida.

In-N-Out easily. Name easily reminds me of sexual intercourse more.

Surprise: Jordan Kovacs. He actually made a team! And he's still in the NFL! And actually recorded some stats! It's like me making it into the NFL.

Yeah, I've heard this as well, but I think Sam also has other sources. I feel like he knows to much for just coming from one source. Brian has said that Sam can't/won't say half of what he actually knows either. And Webb is an ally to the athletic programs in a lot of ways. He doesn't let stuff out there the programs don't want out there when it comes to recruiting and stuff. So a smart program will use that to help themselves and keep the connection up.
|3 days 8 hours ago||Interesting. I was under the||
Interesting. I was under the impression that he was generally well thought of and competent at his job. But then again, I'm not entirely sure how involved his job is. I was under the impression it was more of coordination, paperwork, establishing contacts, etc., and not much with actually identifying prospects.

You know, if it was UM's coaches, I'm all like "meh" at this point. How many minor recruiting violations does OSU commit each year? A metric shit ton. Whatever. If UM has finally figured out that no one really cares about this minor stuff and is playing the game like everyone else, then more power to them.

Well what can you do? No one could have seen a scion of oil tycoons with a huge additude and maturity issues to the point where his parents are publically saying they're worried about his anger and alcohol issues flaming out in the professional world.

Well this will be an interesting bellwether of the fab bases enthusiasm. If I recall correctly the first year (2012 after Hoke's first year), it raises over $50,000. The following year, raised almost $70,000. As for last years's, well, it raises 37,000. I think that had to do with the general malaise surrounding the program. Will be interesting to see what happens this year.

Yeah, that was nearly my same thought. GRIII except he can create his own shot. That is a powerful player right there.

The only book spoiler I care about at this point is when the next freaking book is coming out.
|1 week 2 days ago||Well the NCAA better step in||
Well the NCAA better step in quick before too many high schoolers get some of the highest level coaching in the world. That is truly terrible for football*
*'Football in this sentance is defined as "coaches who don't want to put forward extra effort and want to keep local high school kids from getting to know any other big time coaches lest they maybe want to play for them instead of being at the beck and call of their more local universities."
|1 week 2 days ago||But he wasn't talking about||
But he wasn't talking about people he has a personal connection with. He was specifically mentioning previous UM coaches who built the program. And he left RR out. While including Hoke.
|1 week 2 days ago||I would like to point out||
I would like to point out that in his introductory presser, Harbaugh specifically did not mention RR in the list of previous UM coaches whose shoulders he felt he was standing on. He did mention Hoke, Carr, Moeller, Bo I believe.
|1 week 2 days ago||I would like to know which||
I would like to know which ones. I'm pretty sure they'll get a flood of smaller school coaches; great exposure and experience for them. However, the drama is if/which 'big time school' coaches choose to attend, and who in the B1G attends.

Uh, this is kind of a big move. It's frankly unprecedented in all of college football. And it's a brilliant move too. Puts it right back on all the coaches complaining and puts the NCAA in a bind too, lest they in a publically way really come out and say, "nah, screw the student athletes and something that helps them". Also, it really is setting the bar for Harbaugh and his additude that UM won't back down from anything. Inviting any coach that wants to come to your own camp? That's a pretty big thing I would say.

Wow. That is a fucking brilliant move. Absolutely love it.
