Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.

That is my go to for so many varied situations.
|16 weeks 3 days 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.

Larceny flavored with a Calvados soaked apple to be precise...

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.
|39 weeks 2 days ago||True||
You are correct in your inferences
|39 weeks 2 days 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.
|39 weeks 2 days 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.
|39 weeks 2 days 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.
|39 weeks 3 days 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.
|51 weeks 3 days ago||QWash||
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.
|1 year 34 weeks ago||Awesome||
This was just perfect!
|1 year 37 weeks ago||Thank You||
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.
|2 years 5 weeks ago||Norfleet Fumble?||
Norfleet lost a fumble? Was this the botched special teams play? If so, it wasn't a lost fumble as Delano Hill recovered.
|2 years 19 weeks ago||Thanks||
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.
|2 years 23 weeks ago||Agreed||
Izzo's style is going to continue to win games as long as he is coaching. Same with Bo Ryan, that is until they start calling fouls in the B10 the way they do in the ACC.
|2 years 23 weeks ago||Transfer||
They had an in-season transfer, so adding the second commit is not a surprise. Adding a commit that was originally a Minny signed isn't exactly stealing commits from Middle Tennessee State
|2 years 25 weeks ago||Not buying||
I would agree that in the past THJ took a lot of bad shots, but this year that was not the case. A lot of the shots he missed in the tourney were on drives and foul line area jumpers, those are not bad shots. Sure he missed some in the offense 3's, but they were in the offense and not bad shots.
Label him a streaky shooter if you like, but he (at least this year) was not a poor shot taker.
|2 years 26 weeks ago||Love Coach Beilein's Reactions||
After the McGray layup, we get the 'YES!' single-clap.
After the Spike steal and layup, we get the What?-Gotta get off my stool and applaud that clap.
|2 years 27 weeks ago||Just the last two games?||
Just curious about this selection of the team, was it just for the last two games? Because McLemore was horrible until the Michigan game. Stauskas was only great for one game. I think Timmay was more deserving than Nik.
As for MOP, Burke was a dominant point guard and the engine for the best offense in the region.
|2 years 27 weeks ago||HAIL||
As a father now, this was even sweeter than the Fab 5 or 89 teams since my son was watching by my side.
I never expected a 20 point win, I felt like I was in shock the entire game.
|2 years 28 weeks ago||My brackets say Sparty||
My childhood rooting interests were Sparty except when they played Michigan. So even though I loathe the current state of Spartan fandom, I will be rooting for them and the B1G. I want an all B1G final four. That is the absolute best thing for the league and my team. Plus it will be the ultimate shutthehellup to Barkley.

Doyle's dad had a cup of coffee with the Pistons before he went overseas to play. Not sure it quite fits, but it is that whole pro father legacy thing again.
|2 years 32 weeks ago||Gee Thanks!||
Now I have to spend a significant portion of my day actually considering the random thoughts of Jose Canseco. Specifically, what internet blog did he find his theories on? Because there is no way he came up with that lucid a theory by himself.
|2 years 34 weeks ago||Probably didn't hurt||
I'm sure knowing that you will be back in your home state for a game your freshman year is not a downside. Not sure how much of a factor it played, but it is a good point.
