WHAT!? I CAN'T BELIEVE THEY WOULD DO THAT WON'T SOMEONE THINK OF THE KIDS?!

It's only shady if you hire a guy to a nebulous position like 'film analyst' like MSU did with Gholston's guardian. When you hire someone who knows the landscape of one of the most important recruiting landscapes like the back of his hand to do one of the most important jobs in modern college football? I call that hiring the most qualified person to the position.

You're saying its creepy to hire people who are eminently qualifies for a position you are trying to hire for?
|18 hours 40 min ago||Awesome. Now he just needs||
Awesome. Now he just needs to get those two handed catches down.
|1 day 6 hours ago||Yes, they are. More time off||
Yes, they are. More time off before Finals. But that doesn't matter to the SEC apparently.
|1 day 9 hours ago||I think the NCAA will just||
I think the NCAA will just pass an actual rule instead of using sarcasm to stop UM. Just my opinion.
|1 day 9 hours ago||Yes, I believe in previous||
Yes, I believe in previous years, there's a week of practice before then spring break off, then spring practice for 3 weeks after.
|1 day 9 hours ago||I'm the opposite actually.||
I'm the opposite actually. It does suck to not have your spring break to do with what you want. As for the satellite camps, I really don't think there's anything the NCAA can do about it. It's not a NCAA sanctioned event. It's high schools that out their own camp on, and invite whoever they see fit which is their right. The NCAA has no jurisdiction over what a coach does with his or her free time. I'm sure they'll pass a rule about advertising it, and some stuff about not being able to talk about recruiting which is fine, but I don't think an outright ban will hold up to a legal challenge.
|1 day 10 hours ago||Spring practice is an||
Spring practice is an officially sanctioned NCAA event. Thus, they can do quite a lot to stop it.
|1 day 12 hours ago||We only "don't know" who the||
We only "don't know" who the starting QB is. It's O'Korn. Now exactly how good he'll be is the big question.
|2 days 13 hours ago||I don't think schedule really||
I don't think schedule really matters at this point. Win the B1G and beat OSU late and UM is in.
|2 days 14 hours ago||I'll buy Washington; will be||
I'll buy Washington; will be a telling year, but I think they'll deliver a very good one. I'll buy UM as well. Experience plus Harbaugh equals good. Not sure what to think about Neb. I just can't get a read on how good/bad they'll be under Riley at this point. I'm leaning to 'worse than under Pelini.
|2 days 14 hours ago||They mention in the video,||
They mention in the video, it's impractical to make it like a bike helmet. They are made to absorb impact by permanently deforming. Can't do that with football. Everyone would need a new helmet every play.
|3 days 14 hours ago||Yeah, I know. Bama often||
Yeah, I know. Bama often needs to shed 7 going into fall camp. You don't think they took 29 because they knew they were going to lose 7 after the season in the first place?
|3 days 15 hours ago||4 over after signing day?||
4 over after signing day? That's pretty damn normal. Bama the last few years is like 10 over
|5 days 3 hours ago||I can't believe I'm going to||
I can't believe I'm going to say this, but maybe I'm glad Ballast got bought by Constellation. Maybe it'll help the price point. Because they make some damn fine beers that I would like to enjoy more often.
|5 days 4 hours ago||BP is just so damn expensive.||
BP is just so damn expensive. Can't throw down for Sculpin when Two Hearted is available.
|5 days 9 hours ago||Look, I hope he gets the help||
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.
|5 days 18 hours 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.
|6 days 3 hours 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.
|6 days 8 hours ago||The author identifies himself||
The author identifies himself as Tavid Tolk. Who else could it be?
|6 days 8 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.
|6 days 9 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.
|6 days 9 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.
|6 days 12 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.
|6 days 15 hours ago||Yeah, he's a hyper||
Yeah, he's a hyper competitive guy. He could feel the itch down the road.
|6 days 16 hours ago||Good god, does the state legislature have nothing better to do?||
Good god, does the state legislature have nothing better to do?
|1 week 5 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.
