It's time to offer this kid ( #1) . He is true BLUE and would likely commit on the spot. Looking better every week. For those who are star-struck I would guess that a 4th star is in his immediate future the way he is playing. Regardless of that he would be a great addition.

Under "There ain't nobody better" he lays it all out in convincing fashion.
Let Hoke get us to that 9 - 10 win Carr plateau and THEN find the person to take us back to prominance.

We were sick of being behind the itmes and always playing "not to lose" a la Ferentz.

A combination of not Taking Casteel and no support for RR from a large part of our fan base. Do you see what he is doing with 3 star talent down in 'zona? Grrrrr!

Kick off coverage is still weak, and we were caught completely off guard by the on side kick.
Punt coverage seemed better (though still using the old outdated style)

If he wanted Smith to get the TD why did he take him out when play resumed?

Brian's WTKA gig has always been mornings not afternoons. About 9:00 am.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||11 boards||
Zak also got 11 rebounds which is about the same as his total last year...

A I recall Lewan was a DT in high school before moving to the OL
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Class Size means Nothing||
I have never seen a cogent reason why class size should matter in recruiting ratings. The only rational way to compare recruiting classes is to throw out special teams recruits (for the reasons Ace mentioned), and rate all schools based solely on average stars. You might want it based on the median 15 recruits for large classes.
How can anyone think that a class of 25 3 stars is better than a class of 15 4 stars (assuming as we must that stars - for all their faults - are the measuring stick). The fact that a school has a lot of open scholarships does not mean that they recruit well...
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Sure red shirt||
Bunting is VERY skinny. Needs at least a year with Wellman to approach D1 TE size.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||No Offers||
Henry and Clark did not have osu offers. I don't think we have ever gotten a recruit from that school who had an offer from the bucks... maybe back in Bo's day but not since.
|10 weeks 8 hours ago||Many a slip twixt Shane & Alex||
I would not be so quick to annoint Speight as Shane's successor. Malzone is a Winner, and every bit as talented as the other '15 QBs that we courted. I see him as a 3 year starter leading us to 3 excellent seasons.
|14 weeks 5 days ago||Ty Isaac||
With all due respect (because I agree with most of Brian's observations) the clips of Isaac from last year show vastly more potential than anything I have seen from Derrick Green. Even with offensive line variance firmly in place, he looked better than anybody currently on the roster. Not explosive? A lot to like in the short cuts, balance and power that Ty delivered in minimum PT.

As noted several times on this blog - Brunson is a point Guard, while Cleman is a SG/wing.
They are being recruited for very different roles. Getting Harris fills us up at the 2-3... but does not effect the recruitment of Brunson.

We will miss him... and likely appreciate him more in his absence.

|20 weeks 2 days ago||Conspiracy Theory?||
What are the odds of a "random" drug test being administered to a player who was clearly only suited up for moral support? What kind of system would choose this guy from amongst all the others? Aren't there any human beings with functioning brains who review which players are "randomly" tested. I don't have the answers, but the questions boggle...

Noticed in Green's instagram that Khalid appears to have shed most of his bad weight and looks pretty strong.
|22 weeks 3 days ago||Visit Date||
He is scheduled to visit us on April 18. I think it is his last visit so we have a good chance to make the final impression.
|25 weeks 8 hours ago||Great Idea||
The optional extra point is a winner.
As for the 37 yarder, they will have to move the 2 point conversion back as well - maybe to the 5 yard line depending on what stats say. It should be twice as difficult = twice the failure rate. Not an easy stat to come by...
|29 weeks 1 hour ago||Great Post||
What can I say... posts like this are a big part of what makes this the best blog of all.
Thank you for expressing our hopes and fears in such a clear and informed way.

Here's some info and film on Jon Dobie. Any kid with those measurables is worth a look.

That's plenty tall enough for a shutdown corner... especially one who can bring the wood like Shaun. Will be be great to see him in the winged helmet.
