Devin Gardner only had one touchdown from inside the red zone, that being a 7-yard touchdown vs. Air Force. The others were from 44 yards (Alabama), 42 yards (UMass), and 23 yards (Purdue).
|8 hours 6 min ago||Exactly. It might feel wrong||
Exactly. It might feel wrong to be offering 8th and 9th graders, but that's the direction the game is going. You either go with the flow, or you get left behind. A lot of the big-time programs are coming in with early offers (USC, Alabama, LSU, etc.), meaning those players, parents, coaches, etc. start developing strong relationships for three or four years. Michigan has no chance with, say, a Florida prospect they recruit for 1.5 years while Florida State has been recruiting him for 4 years.
Until/unless the rule is changed (saying, for example, "No contact until sophomore year"), you have to do what you have to do.
I just tweeted about this, but Akron is all over the state of Michigan today. They've offered three 2019 quarterbacks within the state of Michigan. Why? Probably because they know they won't have a shot against other programs (including superior CMU, WMU, etc. schools) unless they start sending good vibes early.

Most Michigan thing I've done?
Whenever I see someone wearing an Ohio State item of clothing, I chant "Ug-ly sweat-shirt *clap* *clap* *clap* *clap* *clap*."

|10 hours 58 min ago||I really don't know. Michigan||
I really don't know. Michigan offered four 2018 kids and a 2019 kid before Mallory. He might have come to Michigan's attention earlier because of those connections, but there's no way you or I can have a clue whether he deserves it without having seen him play. He's got good size and a good bloodline, so those are two pretty good starting points.

I have some auto-neggers who will neg any comment I make.

I can't believe Gerry DiNardo never beat Michigan. That guy seems like a genius.
|13 hours 58 min ago||Put him on scholarship for||
Put him on scholarship for one year and then have him pay his own way for the next three years? Ummmmm...doubtful.
|15 hours 34 min ago||Well, Mallory is at the end||
Well, Mallory is at the end of his freshman year. But Michigan did offer a 2019 kid, too.
|15 hours 35 min ago||I haven't seen any highlights||
I haven't seen any highlights of him. I've searched but can't find any, so I really have no idea. If he's 6'5" and 200 lbs. already, he could very well be a TE or DE by the time he graduates in three years.
|18 hours 1 min ago||First of all, there's no||
First of all, there's no strong evidence that they do. No Cass Tech player has committed to Ohio State since that Mike Weber thing went down.
But secondly, winning cures all. Ultimately, kids want to get to the NFL and play winning football, and that's what Ohio State can offer them.
|1 day 9 hours ago||Yeah, if Rodriguez were the||
Yeah, if Rodriguez were the coach, Hamler would have been offered a year ago. It will be interesting to see where he plays and what he does in college. Right now he's really tiny, but he and Ambry Thomas from Detroit King are two of the fastest players in the state.
|1 day 9 hours ago||No offense, but I don't||
No offense, but I don't really understand comments like this. We can win football games even if we don't get ___________ (in this case, Peoples-Jones). I think Peoples-Jones should be a high priority, but saying he's a "must get" sets us up for panic if he commits elsewhere.
|1 day 9 hours ago||Yeah, I have a post about it||
Yeah, I have a post about it on my site. There are a few names I know of, but none of the transfers are totally concrete yet. I also know of two guys who are probably going to take medicals.

I love me some James Ross, and I've liked him since high school. I wish he had redshirted. I'm not sure that he has been used/deployed properly, but I hope that D.J. Durkin does a good job of using his talents this year. He packs quite a punch for being undersized, and he reads plays faster than just about anyone. But if he gets caught flat-footed, he can get swallowed up by linemen.

That's just the way the numbering goes. Being directly across from a player on the O-line is an even number, starting from 0 (over the center), 2 (over the guard), etc. The odd numbers are the ones that are a little more difficult to learn, since they're not dispersed quite so uniformly.
|1 day 17 hours ago||"We absolutely gotta snag||
"We absolutely gotta snag some of, if not all of the top defenders in Michigan."
Not really. We just need good defensive players. It doesn't really matter whether they come from Michigan or not. The two defensive players who just got drafted were from Ohio. The current defender getting the most hype is from New Jersey. Joe Bolden, Willie Henry, and Chris Wormley are from Ohio, all of whom are getting some attention and predictions for "breakout" years.

The answer to the question:
The people in the video have great voices, it's an interesting arrangement, it's fun, it's energetic, etc. But they turned it into a Broadway tune, like it's "Rent" or "Wicked." The fight song as written by Louis Elbel was intended differently, and the great John Philip Sousa touted its greatness.

Peters averaged 18.7 points/game this year playing basketball.
Anyway, I did also read that he does not have a personal QB coach like a lot of young quarterbacks have these days, so he might be a bit of a late bloomer as he concentrates more on football, gets more coaching, etc.
|2 days 5 hours ago||Onwenu checked in recently at||
Onwenu checked in recently at another camp at 341 lbs., I believe, so he's definitely got some weight to lose. But yeah, at his height (6'2"-ish), he would have to be a blob to be 360+.

It took me all of about three seconds to think of one, and I had to go back all the way...until February of this year:

|2 days 13 hours ago||a) Delonte Hollowell did not||
a) Delonte Hollowell did not run a 4.34. Pro day times are notoriously fast. IIRC, Raymon Taylor ran a 4.42 and Devin Funchess ran a 4.48 at Michigan's pro day. Do you really think all three of those guys are sub-4.5 players, especially after Funchess ran a 4.7 at the Combine?
b) Hoke *did* find a place on the field for Hollowell to do something. He was used on special teams coverage, and when he came in on defense, Hoke used him to allow touchdowns.
c) Hoke isn't coaching anywhere, as you know. But if I just made millions of dollars over four years and got fired, I might take a season off, too. I hope you don't actually think he couldn't find a job if he wanted one.

First of all, I said "generally." There are exceptions.

I'm not sure if this is common knowledge or not, but Breshad Perriman - the Ravens' first round draft pick - is the son of Brett Perriman.

I'm not sure if this is accurate or not, but this link says Gray only returned 2 kickoffs throughout his entire college career. Meanwhile, he had 1,765 career rushing yards and 15 touchdowns as a running back.

I don't know for sure, but I never heard of him getting reps at running back in practice. AFAIK, he was defense all the way.
