Everyone who had a college football team did back then. And those who played college ball weren't the uber athletes they are now. UM was still better than everyone else at the same game in that time.

What I'm wondering about is, first, if he really is/was homeless, there's got to be an NCAA waiver. Second, there has to be housing available through the university for homeless/low income students. Third, if, as in the original article, he took housing from an old friend, the pre-existing relationship makes it not an NCAA violation. Baylor has a huge compliance department. Maybe a bad assumption, but I would think Baylor would do their due diligence before declaring him ineligable. I'm starting to think there's more going on that Baylor/NCAA just isn't/won't talk about. We'll see I guess.
|2 days 10 hours ago||Ah, who cares at this point.||
Ah, who cares at this point. Just fix the damn problem. And honestly, I'm not sure what the problem is right now. Seems more info is coming out and it's not as clear cut NCAA IS BAD as initially presented. Either way, I hope he gets to play, gets housing, and finishes his degree. And whatever the problem in this whole fiasco is/was gets fixed and prevented in the future.

Thanks, that's a much better article. Really hope this get straightened out for him. Guys like that are the reason college sports are so much more compelling to me that professional sports.

Glad LeBron Sr. is saying something about it. The problem with stopping stuff like that is that it works. People like to feel special, and parents like their children to be special. If you want to stop it, parents and coaches really need to put a stop to it, say it's unacceptable.
|2 days 14 hours ago||A great bureaucracyonce again||
A great bureaucracyonce again gets it wrong. Who would have thought that would happen? Seriously, this needs to get corrected, provided he is/was actually homeless and such. You can make exceptions for humanitarian reasons. Besides If it was a close friend that provided housing, I just don't see how that is a violation. Seems they would provide housing regardless of playing football at Baylor.
That said, seriously dude, you were homeless and you got a full ride to Cornell to play football, but turn that down, then can't pay for Baylor at first, go to community college, and then eventually walk on? I mean, I'm all for perseverence in chasing your dream, but damn, you know how blessed you are to be able to get a full ride to Cornell, and you pass that up?

Mentioned before, but with his lingering hamstring injuries, he has probably been very limited in the weight room. Probably good to let that fully heal before pushing it. The redshirt totally needed.

Haha, yeah...it's true, we do look the same.

Is that Morris in #15? Did I miss that? Who are the OL? WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN??!!
|3 days 10 hours ago||MSU 2013 is honestly probably||
MSU 2013 is honestly probably the closest thing to win recently I can think of. They averaged 4.23 YPC that year. Really rode that otherworldly defense to the championship. MSU was up to 5.15 YPC this past season.
Otherwise, wisconsin in their three-peat of B1G championships were 5.21, 5.42, 5.47 YPC. The last two years of Harbaugh at Stanford were just under 5.3 YPC I believe. For comparison's sake, 2010 Denard Robinson led UM was 5.58 YPC . 2012 Ohio State was 5.2, and 2014 Ohio State was 5.75. In the Brady Hoke era YPC were: 5.15 (2011 with 1000 yd rushers of Fitz and Denard and almost all spead/pseudo read option 2nd half of the year), 4.76 (2012), 3.28 (2013), and 4.6 (2014).
All of those UW and past Harbaugh teams are anything but three yards in a cloud of dust. They might run from jumbo formations and I-forms, but those are elite, albeight not otherwordly, YPC. Like all in the top-20 of FBS. Three yards in a cloud of dust was Borges when he finally got to fully install his offense.

ALL WEIGHT GAIN IS GOOD
But really, I kind of agree. It's not like Green was a burner anyway, and I liked his quickness last year (just needed to read block correctly). I thought the 220-225 was fine for a 5-11 guy; enough bulk to break some tackles, not enough to slow him down. But at least in his picture he looks a hell of a lot more in shape than his freshman year. As for Isaac, at first I was concerned, but if he's a legit 6-3, he could carry around 240 pretty well; 225 might actually be too light. But we'll need to see him actually play more to figure that out. Hopefully the coaches scout well during spring and set goals for the players for fall they feel will help.
|3 days 11 hours ago||Re the Issac, gerhart||
Re: the Issac/Gerhart comparison, Issac is like 6-2, 6-3, while Gerhart is 6' on the nose. I know it's easy to compare him to a Harbaugh RB in the past, but they seem like different types of runners, and that extra 2-3 inches means Issac can effectively carry more weight. I hate comparing college kids to NFL vets, but Stephen Jackson is a 6-2, 240ish guy (at the combine he was 231 in 2004).

When was the last time Jim Harbaugh ran a "3 yards in a cloud of dust" offense?
Yeah, I thought so.
|3 days 12 hours ago||Seriously. Competition,||
Seriously. Competition, toughness, simplicity, etc...all buzzwords every coach uses every season. All that matters is wins. And Harbaugh wins. Plus, really, when Harbaugh talks about competition, considering the stories we've heard about him, he takes that seriously.
|3 days 12 hours ago||When was the last time a team||
When was the last time a team won the B1G championship in 3 yards and a cloud of dust? With Bo? Not a formula for winning any championships in today's day and age.
|3 days 14 hours ago||The situation may be a little||
The situation may be a little more dire than you even state. You state Bellomy wasn't a B1G QB, yet Speight is? Based on what evidence? Both were identified by QB inept Al Borges, but Bellomy was actually committed to Purdue. And had a ton of lower level offers. When Speight committed, he had absolutely zero offers, and that was after re-classifying to gain an extra year of high school (and thus being a year older than everyone else). I know the reported offers can be a little murkey but 247 reports no other offers other than UM at all, and Rivals shows an NC State and Miami offer. I would say other coaches thought less of Speight than they did Bellomy coming out of high school. Except for Borges. Hooray.
|3 days 14 hours ago||If he can redshirt, I think||
If he can redshirt, I think it could work out. But I still think Morris is the best option right now on the roster. He would likely be the primary back up if a hypothetical Ruddock transfer resulted in Ruddock starting. And the primary backup doesn't redshirt. I mean, Morris could start one year successfully, but that seems more like a place holder. And Harbaugh will have O'Korn who has starting experience plus a year of Harbaugh coaching, plus the freshman. And if you have two guys who are equals, you go with the younger guy. It just wouldn't look bright for Morris at that point. But there are a lot of 'what ifs' between that bleak outlook actually happening and the present situation.

I'm sure having Cris Carter as an assistant coach there doesn't hurt things for Ohio State. Wonder if the head coach resigning this year will have any effect.
|3 days 15 hours ago||Kind of sucks for the kids,||
Kind of sucks for the kids, since only one can play at a time, but man, that is a great position for UM. With all those bullets in the chamber and a great QB coach, it's a fantastic posistion ot have someone who will be able to play at a high level every year. There will be transfers for sure, but Harbaugh had a penchent of taking 2 QBs per year at Stanford to keep the pipe full.
|3 days 15 hours ago||Man, there is a QB log jam||
Man, there is a QB log jam for sure. If Ruddock does transfer and wins the starting job, that is the death knell for Morris I think. Shame, but oh well, best players should start. Then next year, there's Morris, Speight, O'Korn, Malzone, Gentry, and Freshman. Woo, that's quite a few QBs.

Not enough TOUGHNESS in my opinion. Can't win games without talking a lot about TOUGHNESS.
|3 days 16 hours ago||Adrian Peterson is not the||
Adrian Peterson is not the only guy that can break a tackle and not get caught from behind. He may be the best at it, but there a lot of guys in college who can go over/around a defender and take it to the house. The two choices are not only Adrian Peterson or Mike Hart.

It does matter if the drive takes 10 seconds or 5 minutes. Longer drives with more plays means more chances to screw up. Yes, it also means you get to control the clock if the situation calls for it.

I'll take the guy who doesn't get caught 40 yards downfield and still ran over 3 guys. I know they are hard to come by, but I want UM to be elite, and you need elite players to do that.
