2+ years ago, folks were fretting that he'd never coached TEs before and wouldn't know what he was doing. Now folks are complaining that he's never coached RBs before and won't know what he's doing.
For many though, the RB coach is first and foremost a recruiting position, usually staffed by the young and hungry coach. Seems to fit Jay perfectly. I get it that Ty was both a great recruiter (best on the team) and coach (D. Smith is gonna be drafted) but Jay isn't going to coach in a vacuum and if he needs help, one of the analysts or grad assistants will also focus on RB. Just like a grad assistant did most of the WR coaching under Fisch.

If I remember correctly, LandOf10 is an Atlanta-Journal Constitution site about B1G recruiting. They recruited Justice from The Wolverine to be their Michigan guy.

but I would purchase this one.

Kostas, assuming he is like his older brothers, is the athletic defense oriented player folks have been clamoring for Michigan to recruit.

Young - seems to be working with Jay and Partridge
Black - not going to engage the 'I don't see color' folks, but look at all of the secondary players on the roster then determine if they would notice if the coach was black
From California - tons of recruits
Great Recruiter - seems like having another one of those would be a good thing

Ransom Old Tom Gin... great change from the standard juniper berry fare. Drinks more like a whiskey.
As for me, a few fingers of Laphroaig 18

There was a student in the team in the last few years who was a Bill Gates scholar and football walk-on. Since that is a scholarship open to all students he was allowed to keep his academic award and not count against the team cap.

If I am Miami or USCw, there is one name on my list: Ryan Gossli... er, Kliff Kingsbury. Looks like a movie star, exciting offense, and has shown the ability to trash talk Bert.
That dude with USC's talent or Miami's speed... scary. Just make sure you find a good D coordinator.

I saw a suprise former letterman at a tailgate before the game. I was so shocked, I had to look up a photo to make sure, but Blake Countess was on campus in head-to-toe Michigan Football gear. The custom shirt with the #2 on the back was what first tipped me off.

|1 year 36 weeks ago||Two Routes||
Kid might be super smart, but that highlight reel only showed him needing to remember 2 routes. A TE out and a TE cross. I think the only time he caught something different was a out that he shaded upfield because there was no safety over the top.

How long will it take IU to fire Crean? When they do and get a competent coach in there, they would be my pcik... assuming of course they continue to recruit like they have been.
If UM gets Brown (15) or Langford (16), then things will start looking up.

You are correct in your inferences
|2 years 6 weeks ago||Not really||
His job isn't to decide which recruits to offer, never has been and isn't going to be. That is a coach's job. He's not a coach despite being referred to as one by the recruits.
|2 years 6 weeks ago||On the Job||
Singletary is in the office and on the job right now. IF he isn't going to be retained, everyone might want to adjust their recruiting expectations down for the near future. He is the connect to recruits, let's just say it'll be a rough transition without him.
|2 years 6 weeks ago||I Agree||
He did scouting for IMG to target which college players the agency wanted to go after. Plus, he predated Hoke and though I could be wrong Rich Rod. He's one of Lloyd's guys and he's the one who's been keeping the few recruits we currently have connected to UM. I seriously doubt he's on the way out.
|2 years 7 weeks ago||Noticing it more||
I too have taken notice of the Non-nude but still NSFW avatars lately. Never considered myself an old fogey, but the person at the desk next to mine is a woman. That's not a good look for a workplace.
And for those of you questioning why you would be on a sports blog at work, you must never have worked in an office. People don't work 100% of the time in the office. There are studies that show that taking a break every hours or so makes you more productive.

Just a little FYI, Q. Washington is also a member of Omega Psi Phi and was initiated while he was on the football team. Now seeing a 300 lb D-lineman performing that "hop" during a game would've been priceless.

I am way too old to care and I think these look good. Wearing the same clothes for 20 years isn't tradition, it just means you haven't bothered to try anything else.

Look at his list, what do all of the schools outside of us and Louisville have in common? Hint: It's the same thing that is shared with Kennard's AAU team, the King James something or other.
Yep, you guessed it, it's the swoosh. He is a Nike recruit and will go to a Nike school. It would be a shock if he doesn't choose the swoosh. It's all about the sneaker money.
BTW, this is not an indictment against our Adidas contract, just an observation.

This was just perfect!

Richard Sherman is the best corner in football and was the best corner on the field last night. The 49ers treated him like Deion Sanders and just avoided whatever side of the field he was on until that last play.
I am just curious why everyone here is all butt hurt that he had a Darius Morris moment. "Get the F@#@ off my court!" He is far from a thug, even though he did grow up in Compton and has dreads and for a few moments was a load black man. He is not in need of media training, I will point to that Stanford Communications degree for that. He is cocky, he is arrogant, and he is the BEST corner in the NFL.

Sorry, reading is fundamental.

Norfleet lost a fumble? Was this the botched special teams play? If so, it wasn't a lost fumble as Delano Hill recovered.

I knew what word he was going for but my mental dictionary wasn't firing and I just couldn't get the right word to come up.
