While neither one have blazing speed, it was pretty obvious that Smith was going to out run no one. Love him as a Goalline / Short yardage back but that is it. Success comes when people play and excel was thin their roles........
|1 day 3 hours ago||Optimistic||
WIth the count at 15, and 9 already committed / enrolled. That leaves 6 spots. Alumi96 did a great job ID'ing 13 kids that have / are visiting that we are in on (to various degree).
That means 6 out of 13. That would still be a great day, even better if the likes of Marshall / Smith / Clark / Wheatly Jr / Weber are part of the 6......
Heck that would be the Dream Team Wednesday (certainly not expecting it, but I would pass out in excitement if it did....)
We shall see......
|1 day 3 hours ago||Creating Openings||
I agree that while JH is certainly not pushing anyone out the door (all 3 are getting their degrees), he has recruited and sent out offers to maximize this class with players he wants to bring in. Given the timing of these announcements, I am optimistic (hopeful) that we will be receiving plenty of LOIs on Wednesday morning.
My guess (only a guess, nothing more) is that these transfers are being released because the staff feels confindent that they are going to get some of the kids they want. Otherwise they would just offer the scholly back to each of these 5th year players
Here's to hoping.........

Look at what we are playing with right now.
1) A Sophomore PG that on 1 leg is outplaying most of the league AND most likely will not be an early entry. Yet we KNOW he can play better when healthy. The best part about Walton is that he is MONEY down the strech with the ball and at the FT Line.
2) 3 True Freshman that are showing promise already (MAAR, Dawkins, and Doyle)
3) Robinson coming in from a Transfer
4) Still in good shape for several 2016 prospects
I have also not mentioned Irving and I am going on the thought that most of the kids mentioned above will not be leaving soon. They are good, but NOT that good......yet.....
Given the strong belief / demonstration that Coach B develops these kids. I am actually very excited about 2015 and especially 2016 when the 5 kids noted above will all be Upper classmen sprinkled with some promising young talent.
One thing we should take out of this season (and it was noted heavily by Brian in the Pre-Season Analysis). Never underestimate the value of seasoned big men on your team.
This year is what it is (and I am growing by the day of how proud I am to root for these kids), but I am not bashful or afraid of what 2015 / 2016 have in store.
|3 days 3 hours ago||Typical||
In classic Valenti. I wish he would replay his clips from 4 years ago where he referred to Coach B as a 1 trick pony with gimmick defense. Not worthy of being in the same floor with Lord Izzo. Yet a blow hard that will say anything to get idiots to call in.......
|1 week 6 days ago||Well||
JB is just stating it right now. They showed some fortitude tonight. This is not a great team, but let these kids fight and grow. Let's root for them for who they are. Let's not forget how this program was just a short time ago.........

That should be our offense the rest of the night. NOW JUST MAKE THE FREE THROWS
|1 week 6 days ago||So.... Let me get this straight||
We are playing 2 men short (No Spike and now No Doyal) and people are surprised that we. Are in a close contest. Gut check time?
|2 weeks 23 hours ago||D Bag move big time||
On so many levels. Just think about for a second. 102 points in a half?!?!?! That means they were scoring a basket every ~18 seconds for the entire first half. And he wants brownie points cause they "slowed down" to ~35 seconds? No way. This guy completely misses the point.
I coach youth sports and yes mismatches like this happen plenty. It is incumbent upon the coach to lead by example and stop the scoring and function the rest of the game without running up the score
In soccer I had my best scorer stop scoring but instead intentionally set up my bench players for a score.
In football, I just mixed up their positions. My QB played WR. My RB played guard, my TE played QB.....you get the point.
Bottom line, somewhere around 40-0, the coach should have drastically altered the agenda of the game. ( not to lose,but work on ANYTHING but scoring)

Oregon to taking a HUGE dump on national TV

Now take advantage of it!

That was EXACTLY the same as in the end zone.....
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Now just.....||
CATCH THE DAMN FOOTBALL!!!!!!
|2 weeks 4 days ago||WOW||
Let's see the replay?
|2 weeks 4 days ago||OMG||
CATCH THE DAMN BALL!!!!
|2 weeks 4 days ago||This is a track meet||
Both teams will score and score plenty.....
OSU did not stop Oregon, only Oregon stopped themselves. I actually like how this game has started. Urban knows he can not "settle" for FG
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Don't say that to anyone in EL||
They continually believe that their 2 loss teams would be National Champions each time..... Just ask any Sparty....
Arrrrrggggghhhhh! JH really needs to correct the universe, this is out of control.....
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Here is a crazy solution||
Expand the NFL by 2 teams. One in LA an one in London. Although I am NOT a fan of a London franchise, it was kinda cool getting up at 9AM to watch the Lions play the Falcons. Had football on for 14 hours that day!!! A quadruple header of pro football. My sons had a blast, and my wife went shopping.........

One at a Beach club where the weather is in the 70's overseeing sunbathers in their bikinis >>>>>>>>> 20 degree weather on Lake Erie with a windchill near zero....
/drops the biggest mic
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Seriously||
We are still in the Dead Period in recruiting (that ends this Thursday), but somehow you thought that kids would commit to JH just because he tweets them or calls them. JH is going to be good, but....... lets keep ourselves in check.
Offical visits start this weekend. Commits will start happening then (or shortly there after), with only a few spots available (6-8?) they will evaproate rather quickly.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Track meet style of game||
Oregon could not have asked for a better opponent. OSU is really good, Urban had a great Offensive Game plan against Bama last week and I am sure that they will put up points tonight.
The difference I see here is that Lane Kiffin is NOT roaming the sideline for the Ducks. Oregon's offense will click on all cylinders.
This will be a high scoring game. A key turnover in the 4th quarter will be the difference allowing someone to go up 2 scores.
I am going with the Ducks: 52-42
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Yes......||
We might be in the minority here, but I believe that Morris will be the starter for the first game under JH's teaching / coaching. He has the physical tools, he just needed to be taught the mental portion. Insert guru Harbaugh here......
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Yeah for many things||
2) Road wins are always a good thing
3) the assembly of a great coaching staff
All good things
|3 weeks 4 days ago||More info about Durkin||
As noted above Durkin meet Urban at BGSU and followed him to ND. but the best part is that Urban (along with Mattison) actually recommended Durkin to Harbaugh when JH was staffing Stanford! Well I guess that came back to bit Urban on the butt!!!?!?!
