I've heard differently from numerous other sources. Maybe you were there on a day when Countess was dinged up or something.
|7 hours 29 min ago||They already sent out at||
They already sent out at least one new offer, to 2017 Pennsylvania CB Lamont Wade.
|7 hours 31 min ago||He visited Arizona this||
He visited Arizona this summer, but he did not transfer there.
|7 hours 32 min ago||...and yet: Channing||
Channing Stribling is starting at cornerback. Stribling is a guy whom Countess has beaten out for the starting CB job the past two years. Meanwhile, Wayne Lyons is listed as a backup strong safety.

I don't know... He was a victim of that Ponzi scheme, after all.

I got an advance copy (as did lots of people) but I haven't been able to finish reading it yet, what with all the other stuff going on. I'm almost done, however, and it's well worth the read. This is probably redundant, since most people commenting here will read it eventually, anyway.
|2 days 3 hours ago||His film isn't super||
His film isn't super impressive. He's probably not quite 6'1", he's just an okay athlete, and he doesn't have great arm strength. I would probably peg him as an FCS kid, but a lot of those kids can walk on somewhere at a FBS school.
|2 days 3 hours ago||The competition is not great.||
The competition is not great. His school is about 1,600 students, which isn't tiny but isn't huge, either.
I have come across lots of FCS recruits with profiles on Rivals and 247, so it's a little odd that he wouldn't have a profile if he's an FBS prospect. But it wouldn't be unheard of.

Walk-on kickers win jobs all the time. I figured David would have a chance, but by no means was he assured to win the job. I've been hearing since the spring that Seychel was ahead of David, with Allen potentially beating him out, too.
|2 days 19 hours ago||You know who puts more points||
You know who puts more points on the board than a kicker? The offense. And you know who the only guy is who touches the ball on every offensive play? The center.
If kickers were so important, the NFL wouldn't draft them late or just wait for UDFA time.

Yep. I did a writeup on the preferred walk-ons back in April, including Jordan Glasgow:

We would still take Corley and/or Hill.
|1 week 1 day ago||I thought the same thing.||
I thought the same thing. Usually I get caught up with guys who decommit or transfer (Ferns, Bosch, Crawford, Taylor, etc.), but when Harbaugh was hired, I pretty much forgot about those guys. It's weird to think that Crawford, Taylor, Harris, etc. could be part of Harbaugh's inaugural class.
|1 week 1 day ago||thanks||
Yeah, it went down last night. All the traffic from MGoBlog killed it, I guess. When I built the new website, I purchased unlimited bandwidth, so it shouldn't have gone down. I shared my displeasure with the people in charge. It's fixed now.

The issue has been fixed this morning. Hopefully that doesn't happen again.

I care about everyone.

Yeah, I mean I think that's what happened. I purchased unlimited bandwidth, so it pisses me off that one link from MGoBlog destroys my site.

I'm having the same issue. I don't know what's going on.
|1 week 2 days ago||I don't think it was all||
I don't think it was all nerves. I think he genuinely isn't very good at throwing a football.

I don't know. A tight end is a tight end... Harbaugh loves some tight ends. Maybe they wouldn't have meshed well, but talent can go a long way.

Conelius Jones fell off the radar. Beaver played at Midwestern State and then tried to make the NFL, but he was unsuccessful.

This is our way of figuring out who the trolls are.
You, sir, must be a troll. Off with your head!

Yeah, I know. It probably helps him that he's two years older than his classmates.

Yep...especially that they thought he was so good that we didn't need to recruit a quarterback in 2012.
|1 week 2 days ago||You're welcome.||
|1 week 2 days ago||I agree. As much as it sucks||
I agree. As much as it sucks for the kid, Michigan shouldn't be wagering the program's future based on feeling sorry for kids. Scholarship offers are contingent on players being able to perform their duties as athletes upon signing the NLI.
I think occasional exceptions can and should be made, such as the Austin Hatch situation. Losing two parents and suffering a catastrophic injury in a plane crash is a unique situation, but ACL tears are not so troublesome to overcome.

Sure. And Matt Falcon earned his scholarship offer from playing his junior year after the ACL tear suffered during his sophomore year.
