Replace Brown with Hoke and is there anything different between when Hoke left and when Brown left?
|1 day 6 hours ago||The catch is||
the NCAA is kind of in a pickle if they want to do anything. As others have pointed out, baseball, softball and track teams from nothern climates often times go down south for spring break. Is the NCAA going to ban all those teams from doing trips on spring break or just football teams?

this link shows the number of 3, 4 and 5 stars by state from 2011-2015. Going just by the number of 3, 4 and 5 stars in a state the top 4 states are Florida, Texas, Caly and Georgia. The state with the 5th most is Ohio and they are 300 behind Georgia.
Georigia is closer to being in 3rd place, passing California, than they are of dropping into 5th place.
|2 days 3 hours ago||Georgia||
might not be in the same league as Florida but other than Texas and Caly no other state is. However, after those 3 states Georgia is fighting to claim the spot as the 4th best state for high school football recruits.
|2 days 5 hours ago||Swann||
Completey agree about Swann being borderline HOF, but you can't compare his numbers to the wr's of of the last 25 yrs. It was a much different game back in the 70's - both in terms of how offenses called plays (the focus was on the running game) and what db's and defenders were allowed to do.
|2 days 7 hours ago||Weird||
Why would things be weird in the scenario that you mention? MSU's resume is way better than UM's right now. In Kenpom MSU is ranked #4 while UM is ranked 47th. In RPI MSU is ranked 18th while UM is ranked 56th. Against teams in the top 100 of the RPI, UM is 2-7 while MSU is 7-4.

a high school football player I'm sure the practices at IMG will be open to you. If you're John Doe from off the street, probably not.
|3 days 2 hours ago||8pm||
It will only be 8pm in Minneapolis when the game starts.
|3 days 4 hours ago||In another thread||
someone mentioned they heard something like 200K+.
|3 days 5 hours ago||Compared to USC||
it was extremely tame. USC was banned from the post season for 2 years and lost 30 scholarships over 3 years.
|3 days 6 hours ago||USC||
I'd say the sanctions the NCAA gave USC for the Bush investigation while Carrol was the coach were pretty severe. In fact, other than PSU, the ncaa hasn't come close to handing down sanctions that severe to a football program since.
|3 days 7 hours ago||SMU||
I think it was on one of those 30 for 30's but some of the SMU people had signed contracts with players and left paper trails regarding the money. Not disagreeing with what you're saying but just adding that there was hard, cold evidence that players were getting extra benefits.
|3 days 7 hours ago||I guess||
I look at it differently. When I see that a school's football coach knowingly played athletes who weren't eligible, and all they get is a one year postseason ban - that seems pretty tame to me.
I could be wrong but there's no evidence that the USC coaches knew what was taking place with Bush, right? Do I think it's naive to believe the USC coaches didn't know what was going on or at least had some idea - yes. Tressell got caught red handed (and he had a history of previous ncaa violations dating back to YSU) and all the OSU football program got was a slap on the wrist, imo.
|3 days 23 hours ago||That's what I was wondering too||
How likely is it those commits are still in the class a year from now?
|4 days 33 min ago||Not a cakewalk||
if you're a mid major.
If you're in a P5 conference, you pretty much need to finish 500 or better in conference play and you're in the conversation. If you have a solid non-conference resume and finsih 500 or better in conference play, you're probably going to make it. If you have a good basketball program and are in a P5 conference you should be making the tourney are a fairly consistent basis.

on the bench helping UM's big men understand what they need to do to be effective on the floor.
|4 days 2 hours ago||Honest question||
Has spring football in the past been setup so the players get spring break off?
|4 days 3 hours ago||Read my last sentence||
I never said O'Korn is going to be decent I just said by mid season Harbaugh will have a decent QB under center. Until Harbaugh proves otherwise, I'm going by the thinking he will mold a QB. Pretty much every where he's coached he has developed a QB.
As for O'Korn - he has some advantages that Rudock didn't. Rudock had fall camp to start learning the playbook with the coaches and getting comfortabel with the offensive players. O'Korn has been here for almost a year learning the offense and getting acclimated with the players.
There's no guarantees in life (other than death and taxes) but Harbaugh developing a QB is pretty close.
|4 days 4 hours ago||True on O'Korn but||
Rudock was also benched his last year at Iowa.
Not saying O'Korn blows up like Rudock did but I have a good amount of confidence that Harbaugh will have a decent QB under center by the mid point of the season.
|4 days 6 hours ago||What?????||
the bigger surprise would be the men's baseball team having more wins than the women's softball team.
|4 days 6 hours ago||The interesting thing||
is UM's offense isn't that far away from the DOOM threshold - <50% of the offense coming back.
|4 days 16 hours ago||9-9||
I'd like to think they'll finish better than 9-9 but I completely see what you're saying. I agree about their play against Rutgers, PSU and Minny - it wasn't that good. However, those teams are BAD and UM was still able to pull out W's. I tend to think their play against IU and MSU was unfortunately the way they've playing for a couple weeks, that play was masked though by how bad Rutgers, Minny and PSU are. Outside of Minny and NU there aren't any 'guaranteed Ws'. Away games at Wisky and at OSU are going to be dogfights. I doubt they win at Maryland, and Iowa and Purdue are not good matchups for UM. Since the Hawkeyes and Boilermakers come to AA, that helps - maybe UM can pull off another upset like they did against Maryland, but I'm not counting on it.
|4 days 17 hours ago||OSU basketball||
is a bit like UM basketball - overshawdowed by football so people don't realize they have had a decent amount of success.
OSU has 10 FF apearances which puts them 6th all time, and OSU has the 3rd most regular season Big Ten basketball titles after Purdue and IU.
|4 days 17 hours ago||Thanks!!||
Having an open scholarship and not keeping Max is a head scratcher. The guy isn't going to be all Big Ten but he gets 17 minutes a game and averages 8 pts and 4.5 boads while shooting 55% from the field. That's pretty much UM is getting from Donnal, but after that there's almost no production from the bigs.
|5 days 1 hour ago||16-7||
is UM's record on the RPI rankings due to them playing a D2 team.
|5 days 1 hour ago||Tend to agree||
and as someone pointed out in a different thread one of UM's wins is against a D2 team, so right now UM's record in the eyes of the NCAA selection committee is 16-7.
The catch with Minny is they are so bad, a victory over them might actually hurt the RPI. A loss to them would be devastating.
|5 days 2 hours ago||2016/17 roster||
How's the roster going to shake out next year? UM only has two players listed as SR (levert and Albrect) but they have 4 recruits who have verbally committed. Will there be enough scholarships for all 4 of the recruits who have verballed?
|5 days 2 hours ago||You would see||
the servers crash so not much would actually happen on the board. Everyone would be trying to get in and getting error messages.
|5 days 3 hours ago||Unless UM||
can knock off I don't think their resume is that great. They've fallen to 55th in the rpi rankings and are only 3-7 against teams in the Top 100. One of those 3 wins is NC State who is ranked 94th, and will probably be outside of the Top 100 by the end of the year. In the Kenpom rankings UM has fallen to 47th.
Comparing UM's record against rpi 100 teams to the teams ranked 1-50 in rpi, UM is at the lower end of wins and winning percentage in games against top 100 teams.
|5 days 3 hours ago||MSU||
The reason their fans probably weren't freaking out is they went undefeated in non-conference play with wins over Kansas, Louisville, Providence and Florida. Sparty proved in the non-conference slate that they could play with and beat good teams.
