Look, I hope he gets the help he needs and gets better, but honestly, I'm low on sympathy for him. He has been blessed with almost everything one could need in life and resources to address his issues that most never have. And refuses to use any of it.
|11 hours 34 min ago||Exactly. I've read SC's||
Exactly. I've read SC's breakdown, and the film included is a ton of 3 DL looks. BC's game against FSU had a ton of 4 DL. So I guess I just don't know what I'm supposed to expect. I'm hoping Brown doesn't do the Hoke and hear 'Big Ten' and just assume everyone runs manball like 20 years ago.
|21 hours 19 min ago||My question is will this||
My question is will this Hybrid SAM basically be a BUCK? Like when they say 4 DL, does that count the SAM who plays DL a lot? Because if Brown thinks he can roll out 3 LBs consistently in a spready B1G, UM will be in a world of hurt.

The author identifies himself as Tavid Tolk. Who else could it be?
|1 day 2 hours ago||It may have been his junior||
It may have been his junior year highlights, but one of my favorite things was when DLS put him as a wild cat QB and ran read option with him a couple times. Not the nimblest or fastest guy out there, but he moves well for being a giant TE. Really looking forward to seeing what Harbaugh can do with him.
|1 day 2 hours ago||I mean, isn't depth mist||
I mean, isn't depth mist everywhere unproven? If they had proven production, they would have been starting.
|1 day 2 hours ago||Well hopefully he heals up||
Well hopefully he heals up soon. Still on crutches a month after? Wonder if he's bearing any weight on it. Hopefully some minor fracture or something that should be healed up nicely by fall camp.
|1 day 6 hours ago||Couple of things||
First, the only two things that really keep this class from being amazing (and yes, it still really really great) is the lack of another true DT and an OT. I think these are misses that will hurt 2-4 years in down the road.
Second, is Nate Johnson really a slot? I watch him, and he plays like an outside WR. He isn't an underneath merchent in his film. The only thing 'sloty' about him is his height. But Gallon was a pretty darn good outside WR even at 5'8". When we're talking about cover 4 destroying slot receives, my money is on McDoom. Johnson is fast, but McDoom may be a hair faster.
Third, I am irrationally excited about Eubanks. He may be raw when it comes to patch catching, but that guy has Funchess 2.0 written all over him. In his film, when he intercepted a pass at the goalline and basically blazed by everyone else on the field for about a 100 yard return...wow, that was impressive. 6'5" with speed...
And also, what is UM going to do with all those LB/DE types they now have? Kemp said on his Webb interview he is now either an MIKE or a SAM and that Brown is running a true 4-3. I thought Brown ran a Drukin-ish hybrid 3-4/4-3 which featured a lot of those hybrid pass rushers. Kemp reminded me of Tim Williams in a lot of ways. Was hoping to see that, not a MIKE or an LB that isn't on the field 3/4 of the time because UM is in the nickel.

Yeah, he's a hyper competitive guy. He could feel the itch down the road.

Good god, does the state legislature have nothing better to do?
|1 day 23 hours ago||Ummmm, only Gary will be here||
Ummmm, only Gary will be here on that list. The 2017 team loses a lot from 2016. Exacerbated by lack of DT's the last few classes.
|2 days 1 hour ago||I knew it all along. I never||
I knew it all along. I never panicked. I didn't pace around my office for the last two hours. No, I was super calm. Didn't read any of the threads on message boards about him trying to convince his family to let him go to Clemson. Nope. I was super calm.
|2 days 2 hours ago||Lorenz mentioned UM didn't||
Lorenz mentioned UM didn't send Vic and LOI; i.e. UM couldn't/wouldn't take him in the end. He was the silent.
|2 days 3 hours ago||You could see that coming.||
You could see that coming. If UM pulls Tagaloa, they probably finish 4. Without, looking at 5-6.
|2 days 19 hours ago||I think all those teams could||
I think all those teams could win their division. USC and A&M seem least likely, but if you can win your division so think you can sniff the NC.
|2 days 20 hours ago||Why? Freshman shouldn't||
Why? Freshman shouldn't matter a ton; if you're depending on a freshman class to win, you probably won't be winning much.
|2 days 21 hours ago||I mean, it could||
I mean, it could happen...especially if UM doesn't get Tagaloa. With only Duwmfor, UM has taken 1 true DT the last two classes...not ideal. MSU wanted Onwenu as a DT as well.

Damnit Sam, what the hell does that mean?!
|3 days 4 hours ago||Nope, not at all. If Asiasi||
Nope, not at all. If Asiasi choses UM tomorrow, I feel it's a pefectly justifiable (and correct) position to take. Besides is way overrated and a drama queen.
|3 days 5 hours ago||At this point, I don't think||
At this point, I don't think Asiasi would be unexpected. Tagaloa would. There's been a ton of circumstantial stuff suggesting UM gets Asiasi.
|3 days 5 hours ago||Actually, I hope they get||
Actually, I hope they get Cinci. Another P5 school in Ohio would make another front for OSU to battle. I'll take that.
|3 days 5 hours ago||Houston and BYU seem like the||
Houston and BYU seem like the most logical choices to pursue to me.
|3 days 5 hours ago||Once again, if you listen to||
Once again, if you listen to some insiders, Hand was set to choose UM. But then Hoke started to lose mid season, he saw the writing on the wall, and changed last minute. That season under Hoke is nothing like UM under Harbaugh now.
|3 days 5 hours ago||The recent storm of Asiasi||
The recent storm of Asiasi CBs even from Lorenz is promising. Hopefully he can convince Tagaloa ('s family) to come along; this class needs another quality DT in the worst way.
|3 days 5 hours ago||Dude, Seth wrote this one.||
Dude, Seth wrote this one. Just because it's recruiting doesn't mean Ace automatically wrote it.
|3 days 19 hours ago||That's such bullshit and you||
That's such bullshit and you know it. How many recruits does MSU have from MI? I counted four in the top 30. If UM gets Nordin, Hill, and Jackson, UM has 4 as well.

Wait, he puts Onwenu at < 65%?

Yeah, I somehow think this is a SOTS related thing.

Not credible enough yet in my book to take this seriously. Not even sure it may be recruiting related. Also, don't really like the sensationalism of a tweet like that.
