This story was stolen from the Auburn Real Sports... I'm calling likely troll shenanigans.
|2 years 36 weeks ago||Duped?||
I don't know who the original poster is from the "Academics" diary, but I have a hard time shaking the notion that it's a troll, trying to make Hoke look bad. He stole that line from teh Auburn Real Sports.

To pull a "convenient" one on a kid from a feeder school like Cass Tech would be... unadvisable, in my opinion. I think the coaches would see that angle - although of course we can't rule anything out. Hopefully a reporter will reach out to Teric for his story, now that he's off the squad.

I don't think I have enough points to start a thread, but we need to make this happen. Someone needs to do a peitition or something!
The Fab Five shorts were to me as a youngster as iconic and "Michigan" as the winged helmet. Those shorts were such an outrageous fashion statment at the time, that we absolutely flocked to and they still stand to this day.

It goes into real time on/around Signing Day, IIRC. As new commits announce the classes rankings go up and down. IIRC they just plug in the Rivals Rating into their formula. It keeps going after signing day as well, in case of late commits from big prospects like a Terrell Pryor.

How it works:
There are three major competitions played at overlapping times throughout the year.
#1 is the Premiere League. These are the top 20 teams in England. Everyone plays everyone else twice, home and away. 3 points for a win, 1 for a draw, 0 for a loss.
#2 is the FA Cup. Basically every tiny football club in England gets to play in this single elimination, random draw tourney. Think Hoosiers. The small clubs have a chance (but dont usually win). The big boys get byes until the round of 64, IIRC. The finals are always played at Wembley, and the competition is played concurrently to the league.
#3 is the Champions League. Top few teams from each country get in this awesome big money tourney. Winner are declared champions of Europe. This has grown in importance wildly over the past few years. Also played simultaneously to the regular season
#4 is the Carling Cup AKA League cup. this is a single elim tourney, but only for the top 80 or so teams (the League, as they call the top competitions). This is pretty much an afterthought for most teams. It doesn't have the history and romance of the FA cup.
|4 years 8 weeks ago||I think above wins and losses||
I think above wins and losses is the direction of the program. Obviously, only a one game progression would yield a winning record and bowl game. If we miss our mark by one game again, you'd have to look at the bigger picture. You don't just can a guy who has only had two (really good) recruiting classes, who overhauled the entire scheme. He needs more time to build a program if you're gonna give him an honest chance to do things his way.
Of course, we'd love and NEED the Lloyd recruits to be major contributors this year. Rich is giving them every chance (Woolfork, Martin, Mouton, Ezeh, RVB, O-Linemen, Stonum, I could go on and on.) The problem is, our secondary is going to be scarily young, and Rich Rod was kind of screwed on this end, as with the QB situation.
Still, I don't like excuses, and I hope the head coach makes none, even if we all know what they might be. We'll re-assess after the season, but I'd lean to a year four almost no matter what.

Good stuff, thanks for this report.

If they don't get Suh, I'd love Eric Berry. I wanted Ed Reed over Joey H, no joke.
