The player you're thinking of is Jerimy Finch. He was the top player in Indiana and was going to choose between Indiana and Michigan. Then on signing day, he went with Florida. Here's what Urban had to say about it:
"After appraising the top-100 list, I saw that he was ranked highly and I wanted to know where he was going," Meyer said.
"I knew Warren Central from my days at Notre Dame. I called the coach, and he said, 'Coach, you'll never believe this, but we just finished talking about Florida.' He played in the Orlando all-star game, and the kid loves Florida. Five minutes later, I was on the phone with (Finch). Without watching one speck of tape on him, I asked him if he wanted to come down for a visit. We thought he was a great kid and a good-looking safety, and his tape just solidified it.
"We offered him, and he decided to come. It's unbelievable because I didn't go to Indiana once the whole time."

Their "Percy Harvin" type is going to be Jalin Marshall. He'll only be a freshman, but he's gonna be a major pain in our ass for the next 4 years (if he stays that long).

So we're all for bringing in a potential distraction to the team while also drawing attention away from what the current players have accomplished? Sounds perfect.

|16 weeks 3 days ago||Honestly feel guilty||
I mean, at what point is my entertainment worth watching guys scramble their brains? I've heard suggestions before that removing the helmets from the game might actually help because the players wouldn't lead with their heads and wouldn't have nearly as many full speed collisions.
He's only in his 40's, for god sake.

Came in as the #1 running back in the country. Set the freshman running record at UM and then did nothing after that. Came down with a bad case of fumble-itis.

Play calling by Butler is pretty impressive. They have Jack Britt completely off balance.
|26 weeks 3 days ago||In other news, I recently||
In other news, I recently offered Scarlett Johansson the opportunity to date me. Probably gonna turn out the same way for me that offering Reschke will for UM. We'd have as much luck offering one of the Bullough family tree.

Of course, USC is fixing these problems by hiring extra security guards. The only problem with that is the most recent shooting was done by . . . wait for it . . . a security guard.
Gotta love USC.

Along with three on campus shootings in the last six months, two of which were fatal.

my impression of his recruitment was not that we didn't want him but rather we wanted Pipkins more. there may have been some concern that taking schutt would jeopardize pipkins as a commit.

kinda sucks. Found a pic of Lloyd Brady in the Detroit News. Can't start threads so here it is in this thread.

I have to admit I'm looking forward to the response by Torgerson. He said he wished someone would get fired and he ended up getting fired. It will be interesting to see how he handles it.
|30 weeks 6 days ago||Keep in mind that from a||
Keep in mind that from a depth standpoint, OSU makes perfect sense. OSU's offensive line recruiting has been marginal for the last couple of years, both in talent and numbers. He would likely be a 3 year starter at a minimum based on that alone. Throw in the fact that OSU is relatively close to home and it sweetens the deal.
I'm not saying he's probably leaning that way. But there are legitimate reasons for a kid as talented as he is to be interested in OSU once he decommits from Michigan.
|44 weeks 1 day ago||If by "that" you mean that||
If by "that" you mean that the e-mails aren't specific enough to attribute knowledge to Paterno, yes. That's the main talking point for the pro-Paterno crowd at this point.
The first e-mail refers to "Joe" in the title. Pateno defenders say that could be any "joe" at the school or even Joe Amendola, Sandusky's attorney 14 years after the e-mail. They also say that just having the name "Joe" in the title doesn't mean Paterno knew about the e-mails.
The second e-mail refers to "coach" being anxious to hear what's happening with the investigation. The Defenders of Joe insist that this is a reference to Sandusky, not Paterno. So Sandusky was talking with Spanier, Graham and Curley about the '98 investigation but Paterno knew nothing.
|44 weeks 1 day ago||Allow me to address this||
Allow me to address this little controversy in the manner of many PSU posters who insist the e-mails aren't specific enough to attribute knowledge to Paterno:
"How do we know what statue it's referring to? What if they're talking about the statue of the Nittany Lion outside the stadium? Why are you jumping to the conclusion that this refers to the Paterno statue just because it's coming around the same time there's controversy about the Paterno statue? On any given day there are several statues all over campus and this could be about any of them."

There is only one marquee Brandon should be spending money on:
Yes, I know his name is spelled Markie

If my memory serves, the last UM recruit who had a big time SPARQ rating was McGuffie. He had something like top 5 all time rating (back when he did it, of course).
|51 weeks 3 days ago||Exactly. Talk about missing||
Exactly. Talk about missing the real issue. If you are seeking out child pornography, you are making a decision that you approve of the abuse which caused that pornography to be made in the first place. You are, in effect, the consumer to which it is marketed. The real harm done to a child in order to make the video you are enjoying can not be compared in any way to what consenting adults decide to do.
|1 year 4 weeks ago||Another 2 cents||
Hillbilly, I'm a prosecutor out in Los Angeles. I have a few thoughts on your situation (as a lot of people apparently do).
First, I'd like to know if you've considered going to law school part time? I believe this would probably take care of some of your concerns. Going part time will greatly reduce the financial burden on your family. You'll be able to keep your job (presumably) so you'll still have your income and you'll only be paying out a fraction of the amount for tuition. Yes, it takes longer. Yes, it might not be the experience you're hoping for socially (btw, law school is NOTHING like college), but it would greatly reduce your exposure to some of the dilemmas you are worried about.
Second, you really should consider whether you are interested in law or whether you're interested in making more money. Nearly every person I know from law school hates being a lawyer. That's because we almost all did it for the same reason: we didn't know what else to do. There's only one guy I know from law school who went because he loved the idea of being a lawyer and I don't think it's a coincidence that he is the happiest guy in the world actually being a lawyer. It sounds like you already make good money. If that's the case, ask yourself why you really want to go to law school.
Third, if you decide to push forward with law school then your decision of whether to go to a higher prestige vs. lower cost school should be informed by a couple of factors.
A. First, do you plan on going out of state to work as a lawyer? If so, you should go to the higher ranked/prestigious school. If, for instance, you came to Los Angeles to get a job and told people you went to Michigan State's law school, they would recognize the name and it would at least start you off on a good vibe. If you said you went to Wayne State, you'd get blank stares and they might even wonder if that was a real place. If, however, you stay in state then I don't think it matters much where you go. In my office, we have a TON of grads from Southwestern. Ever heard of it? Didn't think so. But because people are so familiar with it in the area, it doesn't matter whether a person graduated from Southwestern vs. UCLA vs. Stanford. We've had experience from grads at each of those schools and some are good and some suck, regardless of which school they attended.
B. What do you plan on doing with your degree? If your end game is to work at a giant law firm and make partner, you'd be better served with the Big Name Law School. If it's virtually anything else, I don't think it matters much.
Finally, please keep in mind that having a law degree is certainly no guarantee of a bright financial future. My office is the largest prosecutor's office in the country. A little over a thousand prosecutors. We are hiring this summer for the first time in six years. We received something like two thousand applications for 40 spots. We've had people interning here (for free, of course) for a couple of years who didn't get one of those 40 spots. Having a law degree does not mean you're going to get hired to be a lawyer. You should be ready to hang out your own shingle and spend a couple of years building a client base (and living in the red) if you decide to be a lawyer. Also, if you are young enough you could consider being a cop. I know a couple of officers who went to law school and they are great cops, largely because they went to law school. And cops make good money.
|1 year 24 weeks ago||Actually, their applications||
Actually, their applications are up 4% system wide and up 2% specifically at State College. Weird but true, apparently.
|1 year 36 weeks ago||So the question becomes is||
So the question becomes is OSU holding them out another game because OSU got some bad PR similar to the reaction they got from Tressel's initial 2 game suspension (unlikely) or because they are worried there are more issues with these guys that could result in forfeiting the game down the road due to playing them.
Also, there's a question as to whether I can write a longer sentence than the last one.

Purdue is putting together a nice class for 2013. So far they have the #57, #44 and #42 players according to Scout. Point guard, shooting guard and power forward.

the fact that he got his facts wrong. Coach Hope did not suspend his player for a full game. He suspended Reckman for one quarter. The Big Ten said that was not enough and stepped in to suspend him for a full game.
Nothing like calling someone out when you've got your facts wrong.
