give you a sneak peek at Oregon. They were 11th and the only thing holding them out of the top 10 was the uncertainty of having a new head coach who isn't Chip Kelly. They rated out well in everything though.
|14 hours 8 min ago||one thing||
I read last week to go along with them not knowing who Campbell is, is that their staff supposedly spent the whole time asking Cole why he picked Michigan.
|1 day 1 hour ago||I predict||
Hunter Hearst Helmsley to Iowa
|1 week 4 days ago||Oh yeah?||
That's what the kid things. What he doesn't know is that Urban cooled on him just seconds earlier!
|2 weeks 6 days ago||It might be just me||
but I always think of Khalid Hill and Wyatt Shallman together and playing a similar role in the future but complimenting each other as a runner/pass catcher out of that U-Back spot or whatever it is called.
|3 weeks 4 hours ago||so||
I can assume Dantonio is just clearing room to sign more recruits? I'm told by this red cedar place that when we lose players that Hoke is an oversigner just clearing room for more. It is now clear that Dantonio is doing the same! Amirite?

bored at work, I usually go through what I think might happen with lineups one day. Here's how I think the secondary plays out. Peppers commits on Sunday. This fall, Raymon Taylor and Blake Countess play CB while Jarrod Wilson and Thomas Gordon play safety with Dymonte Thomas holding down the nickel. Courtney Avery is the top DB off the bench.
Then next season, Thomas slides into a safety spot, replacing Gordon. Peppers fills into the spot vacated by Thomas. Wilson, Countess, and Taylor remain in their spots.
Then in 2015, Peppers moves to a CB spot, replacing Taylor. One of the current players then moves into the nickel spot. Maybe Richardson or Ross Douglas takes that spot. Either that, or Peppers remains a nickel and someone else moves into the CB lineup. Lot's of good options for the future though, that's for sure. I'm excited about the secondarys future.

Thoughts exactly. I'm expecting them to go hard after the California kids. But as far as just in-state kids, I wanted to let the other poster know some like malzone more. Campbell has gotten all the hype, but I still expect him to be in the 3 star range. I think its clear hoke is going to shoot for a blue chip kid first tho.

Is an in-state 2015 qb that a lot like more than Jayru actually. His name is Alex Malzone. He's out of brother rice
|4 weeks 3 hours ago||Well to be fair||
the kids in this years class are going to have a minimal impact at best in the ND-M series. They will appear in one game and most of them will be redshirting. Also, it's an early season game, so even the kids who don't redshirt are barely going to play much in that game. As of this cycle, I'm past the point of caring about who Notre Dame lands other than in head-to-head battles. A shame though. I enjoyed the Notre Dame rivalry much more than MSU.
|4 weeks 3 hours ago||I know||
this is kind of unrelated, but I might as well give the heads up here. 247 is coming out with its initial er...247 rankings...for the 2015 class tomorrow.
|4 weeks 3 hours ago||Oh how||
I wish my sarcasm meter worked still. But many a time over the years it has indicated sarcasm only to be thrown off by the many who are completely serious about the things they say.
|4 weeks 6 hours ago||why||
Exactly would the school they go to affect their ranking?
|4 weeks 1 day ago||just||
Makes me sick to watch this. Tonight would be a great night to donate to people who need money more desperately than we might.

That camera cut around to Michael standing in the doorway, I almost lost it. His return was so perfect. He was kept to a minimum, but you still knew he was there. And he had to be. Andy's line about the good old days was incredible. And the final scene, cutting away from Pam talking to show an ordinary building full of extraordinary characters was just the perfect finish for me. I loved every second of this episode.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||hey magnus||
How close are we to your annual countdown
|4 weeks 5 days ago||i hope||
He's started off good enough for you. 19-7, beat all 3 rivals, bcs bowl win...
|4 weeks 6 days ago||i think||
Ace is just too chicken to include notre dame in the rankings
|4 weeks 6 days ago||congrats||
This comment just went platinum in the hip hop community
|4 weeks 6 days ago||i think||
He is just cutting the kid so he can oversign. /boom rcmb'd
|6 weeks 1 hour ago||no||
By "knew" I mean they probably have a general idea on who is and isn't leaving the program and they probably had a pretty good idea Ringer was contemplating leaving. Anything beyond that isn't something we would ever be aware of
|6 weeks 3 hours ago||I think they would||
take Ballage or Hilliman, but without either of them, maybe they don't. If Smith redshirts, that essentially puts him in this class, one year away from Derrick Green. And considering the prospects they are in on for 2015, they could survive that.
|6 weeks 3 hours ago||Agree||
that's why i used composite in my best guess list post. It's also the first one I look up when we get new commits now.
|6 weeks 3 hours ago||A quick||
aside from 2014 recruiting, but do you think McCray sticks at SAM?
|6 weeks 3 hours ago||A good point||
and it's quite possible their pursuit of Watson and Winovich means they knew about Ringer well in advance.
|6 weeks 3 hours ago||aww||
poor Ian Bunting :(
|6 weeks 4 hours ago||To be honest||
Jabrill is probably good enough to play anywhere in the secondary. We could even play him 2 ways and have a package where he gets the ball. Have you seen his highlights? He can catch and has great change of direction when he runs.
|6 weeks 4 hours ago||That rating||
has always been kind of curious to me too. I always figured he was in the 300-350 range until I actually checked.
|6 weeks 4 hours ago||Probably a safe bet||
The only reason I listed 3 instead of 2 is because I felt like all those DB's were too much to ask for. I did clarify 2 LB's as a possibility in my comments, however. A best player left situation does seem likely, as you said.
|6 weeks 4 hours ago||I could have went||
a little less rosy and guessed we steal Marshall from MSU but don't get Hand. Even less rosy, we only get McDowell out of the remaining DL targets. But I don't know who else we'd even be targeting, and this is my guess list as of today. So i just went with all the most realistic options that I hoped to get. Obviously I doubt we land ALL of those kids that I guessed on. But I wouldn't be surprised at any one individual I listed coming here either.
And you're right, this is fun. Recruiting is fun as long as we don't freak out every time we don't get someone (Treadwell, Levenberry, Frost, ect.) There will always be others!
