I was part of a team that prepared for Bruere in his junior year, and I have seen Gentry. I'll be honest, it would not shock me if Bruere doesn't end up at a MWC or C-USA team and puts up some massive numbers. Smart kid, likeable and coachable, and a winner. Going JuCo for a year or two will make a world of difference. He will be eased in to the speed at higher levels instead of redshirting, sitting for two years, and starting his JR/SR years at a bigger D1 school. Good choice for this kid!

Sorry, should have clarified. I think Gentry can be a big time player. It's just going to take a couple of years and a lot of hard work. Same thing for the Bruere kid. They can be, but I dont see them as capable of stepping on the field for their true freshman opener as the starting QB. Long ways from playing on Saturdays for a major D1 school and Friday nights here in NM.

UNM is an option attack under Bob Davie. NMSU brought in like 6 QB's last year. Hence no NM schools looking at him at the D1 level. As for D2 schools here, once again, system fits and previous recruiting classes factor in.

Once again, most of it boils down to New Mexico HS football. I have actually coached against this kid, last year as a junior. We were a classification lower than his, and we lost in the last minute of a tough game. The kid impressed the hell out of me. I honestly feel like he was the best QB in the state of NM. I realize some will disagree, but after game planning for EB and watching Gentry, I felt like EB and Rio Rancho were just the better player and team. Last season, Rio Rancho had some serious speed and talent at WR and TE which may have led some scouts to question EB's talent. However this year, those doubts should have been erased. Regardless, the kid's got talent, and just like I said about Gentry, coming from NM, I just don't think he is D1 top level football. I think he needs time and seasoning. Just my opinion though.

Just saying that the level of competition here he has been up against is nothing like he would have seen in say Texas or New York. Not a knock on the kid but I would be shocked if he was ready in year 1 or 2 for major college football. But then again, I am just a small town coach in New Mexico where most of our talented kids go D2 and take a couple years to be able to contribute at that level.

I coach HS football here in NM and this kid has been the talk of the state. To be honest I don't think you can put much stock in the hudl footage here. Our biggest classification would struggle with the 3rd largest in most states. The kid is a nice QB and may turn out to be great but it is going to take some serious coaching and patience. I have not coached against him but most of the programs he played against and most coaches here would agree with my statements. Take it for what you will...

Caris is no where near ready for the NBA. But I fear he will go.

The Packers and Lions went 1-1 against uncommon opponents which means they will have the same record against common opponents correct? So they would move to the next tiebreak wouldnt they?

I thought someone had posted something saying that state law in Miss prevents extensions of a certain length so the Mullen deal is still pending or something like that. Could be wrong though.

Trade for Simon, using two decent trade chips, to put him in the bullpen? Doubtful. Besides, could have traded for a more useful bullpen piece with the two the Tigers traded away.

Lester also got a veating option for a 7th year at 15 million....

It's a huge uphill climb for the Niners to get in the playoffs. Ride it out for three more weeks, then try and trade JH and get something in return. Plus buyouts and all that fun stuff. I would not think firing JH is a good business decision.

How can they leave Baylor out after beating TCU?? Winning head to head with basically the same schedule. Hard to see TCU in losing to Baylor.

FWIW, Cowherd said on twitter something about a current Patriots head coach. I am guessing he is having way too much fun with Michigan fans now.

It's not the service provider according to the last lady I talked to. Blacked out online for me and aside from the Rangers, all three others I listed are blacked out on a TV too.... Stupidity....

I live in New Mexico and they are blacked out against Texas, Houston, Arizona, and Colorado.... And I too have MLB.TV.... Seriously sucks.... I only get the Rangers games on TV

I recall seeing shortly after Sam Webb posted this that someone else retweeted the kid saying he was all sparty and not interested. Can't recall who retweeted it but I do know it was out there.

Look up Eastern New Mexico University.... They struggle with NAIA schools.... UIW is no where near capable of a game like this. It's all $$$

I watched them in 2012 in Dallas against my school.... Trust me when I say this.... Last years Michigan could and would score 120 points against them. They struggled against D2 schools....

I think some where expecting teams like NC State and Providence to march through the first two weekends.... Got to play good teams.... They are all in the field and earned their spot.... It's March... Line em up and knock em down.... Just win!

So other teams win with freshman and RS freshman but Michigan just can't? Last night was the 13th game of the season. They aren't freshman anymore. This staff was out coached across the board. You could see from the players they have no faith in their staff. But hey what do I know right ? Just a hack on the net .

Out here our football season runs from July through December. Basketball is October through March. A lot of coaching relationships are strained due to the overlap in seasons and forcing coaches to pick a sport come October 1st. Be prepared to face some heat over the decision

Is the softball strike zone always this small? Thigh high at the bottom of the zone makes it tough on the pitchers.

You kid about being an attractive job right? Phil wants a team ready for rings now. This core is not going to beat the likes of SA. OKC, or the Heat anytime soon. Phil Jackson will not be the coach of the Pistons. Hell I would bet he would have turned it down even coming out of our last championship. It's not a fit.
