I'm surprised nobody in the MAC / C-USA / MWC / SBC has offered him. His stats are off the charts. I know his competition was poor and he needs better arm strength but good coaching can make up for a ton.
This kid should be recruited. Period. If he fizzles out, so be it, but he at least deserves a shot.
|5 days 7 hours ago||Not just where but when. If||
Not just where but when. If the officials let little time pass between bringing the footballs indoors and measuring, then the footballs would still be filled with cool air and would still be wet, which could lead to a lower PSI than when they were inflated.
|5 days 7 hours ago||A few notes||
1. The experiment in the video was very simple but telling. I'd like to see full data and also how much time between measurements and how much time between soaking the football and measuring. I also see that they did not take the footballs outside as part of the experiment, so the researchers did not take into account air pressure differences from indoors to outdoors.
Whenever the controversy of the week reveals itself, I always choose to wait for facts and data to be released before jumping to conclusions. I often feel alone in doing so because everybody has jumped to a conspiratorial conclusion in this one. I believe if we answer a few questions I laid out above, we've got a good shot at a real plausible answer that does not involve nefarious deeds.

I am adamantly against expanding NFL playoffs. The NFL has publicly time and time again committed itself to improving player safety. The league has invested in research into head injuries, increased education into proper and safe tackling measures, and fined players for targeting penalties. For the NFL to expand playoffs, it would mean that teams would have to play and win more games to win the Super Bowl.
I may not know too much about head injuries, but I do know that more games would mean more opportunities for head injuries. Expanding playoffs would mean the NFL is putting revenue above player safety.
|1 week 14 hours ago||Gage||
I've not seen it mentioned yet ....did anybody check the pump and pressure gage the Pats used to pump the footballs? If I were a ref and measured air pressure in the footballs and determined that 11 of 12 were around 2 PSI low, the first thing I would check is the equipment used to pump the footballs. Bad calibration could easily be to blame. Just a thought, a little OT.

It would be a minor violation for a booster to contact a recruit via twitter and it could be hard to track. The university is only allowed so many contacts per week and the booster twitter outreaches each are considered university contacts. Now I'm not sure but I think the @TerpsCompliance twitter page is aimed at an audience of current UMD student athletes and I imagine there could be more trouble if a current student athlete reaches out to a recruit (outside of official recruiting events of course).
Most universities keep track of student athletes' twitter activity so detecting a student athlete reaching out to a recruit via twitter would be pretty easy to catch.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Wow||
First, the NCAA lets Penn State off a bit lighter than they probably should have thanks to "cooperation," whatever that means.
Next, the NCAA removes the bowl ban thanks to "progress", whatever that means.
And now the NCAA grants a guy who enabled a pedophile the right to have more wins in history than any other coach.
What next? Will the NCAA raise JoePa from the dead and reinstate him as head coach? In all seriousness, this is disgusting. I have a lot of friends who are Penn State alums and I've always respected the style of Penn State football, but I also believe in accoutability, and the NCAA is demonstrating the opposite of accountability here. I have a hard time believing in the NCAA's "mission" when clearly the athlete comes before the student, coaches and programs earn runaway revenues, conferences realign and force longer travel periods for "student athletes" for the sake of more TV money, and a pedophile enabler is re-glorified by the NCAA.

Website hosting. So ... I guess yeah. The probably host their share of porn sites.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||2009||
Adazzio was the OC in 2009. That team still had Tebow and I think the only major loss from the previous offense was Harvin. Anybody who watched Florida football in 2009 would say there was a massive dropoff in production from 2008. The 2009 team relied upon the offense much more than in 2008.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||QB and OL||
The team is a QB and an OL away from being a contender. Harbaugh has demonstrated success developing both. I'm definitely looking forward to what Morris can accomplish under Harbaugh's guidance.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Morris||
Seeing what Harbaugh did with Andrew Luck, I'm personally looking forward to what Morris can accomplish with two years of learning from Harbaugh. Not saying I'd say no to a veteran transfer, but I'd first look to our current roster.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Interesting but unworkable||
Too much broken tradition for schools to accept it. And no way the power schools would accept sharing money with MAC or C-USA schools even if the lower teams perform well enough to merit the highest levels. But I love the idea that Bowling Green could replace Indiana for Big Ten football based off of success, not politicking and money.

Get away from the shadow of Nick Saban.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||Tulsa||
His QBs at Tulsa were not really scramblers, and honestly they weren't even all that highly recruited. They put up record numbers passing to wide open receivers thanks to an offense that used a lot of short screens and a good running game to open up a deep passing game with receivers in single coverage. None of his Tulsa QBs got serious NFL looks but they all put up insane numbers.

I posted this one one of the other three or so related pages. I think you're looking for somebody who is looking to leave a situation where there's some friction because this is happening in one hell of a hurry. So my initial thoughts ...
|8 weeks 2 days ago||Nor am I. He'd be my number||
Nor am I. He'd be my number three on that list, number one is Malzahn. But you can't mention Knight's hands all over Oregon without also mentioning Pickens' hands all over Oklahoma State.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||Let's pretend the information||
Let's pretend the information is accurate. We will be hearing who our new coach is this weekend, and he is currently coaching a team. That means ...
I can't think of any big name head coaches who would be itching to leave for M, so I think it is somebody in a hell of a hurry to leave a good position. Maybe somebody in a position with rough relations with fans or the AD, or maybe somebody ready to get out of a bigger guy's shadow.
This all leads me to three big names ...
I'm sure there's plenty of other big name guys I'm not thinking of but I could see a reason for any of those three to want out.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||Intrigued||
Call me intrigued. He gets the most out that Air Force team in a rough conference. If he could put together offensive and defensive schemes to maximize the talent here and get the guys to play with the intensity seen at USAFA, call me very intrigued.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||Schiano||
OP: where on earth did you get that ridiculous picture of Schiano??
|8 weeks 3 days ago||Calhoun||
I cannot say I am too familiar with Calhoun outside of Air Force. Would he bring the triple option to Michigan? Or would he develop a Big Ten style of play?
I am intrigued ... I've always liked to watch Air Force football. And I've always liked his interviews.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||Big name||
I do believe we will land a big name, and it could be a big surprise name. M is one of the biggest few destinations in the sport. Even if we don't hire one of the Harbaugh brothers or Les Miles, I do believe we will land a big named coach.
Think Arkansas two years ago. Nobody in any corner of the sport saw Bielema leaving a good position for Arkansas. I could see a similar thing happening here. Nobody in any corner of the sport could imagine Stoops, Gundy, Pinkel, Richt, Malzahn, Helfrich, Mora, etc. leaving such a good job for Michigan. I find it more likely that we hire a seriously big name guy leaving a stable position than an up-and-comer like Holiday or Bohl. Not that there's anything wrong with Holiday or Bohl as I like both a lot, but I think a bigger name is coming.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Obviously Jim Harbaugh is the||
Obviously Jim Harbaugh is the goal and Les Miles is a heck of a consolation prize. But if neither happens, I keep coming back to Steve Addazio. I feel like Adazzio could take the roster we currently have and turn them into a championship caliber team. I also feel like his brand of football (offensive line greatness, power run game, efficient pass game, solid defense) could build a Big Ten power. Basically he could build a Wisconsin at M.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||The way I see it||
Here's the way I see it ...
Michigan plans to move on. Even if Harbaugh, Miles, and Jones are actually not interested (and "sources" claim such but are unconfirmed), Michigan knows they can do better than Hoke.
I'm expecting within the next hour to two hours we'll know for sure that there will be a new coach next year. This is a big enough job that we'll get a household name coach. I believe it.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||Flight||
I'm about to fly across the country, around a 6 hour flight. I hope upon landing I open MGoBlog to see that Hoke is out.
|9 weeks 5 days ago||Two schools of thought||
I have two schools of thought and I can't decide which is correct.
1: Hoke has kept this game close in all three previous years, won the first one and would have won last year with a better final offensive play call. He gameplans very well and Mattison plans the game of his life and it comes down to the wire but ultimately we don't have the horses to keep up. We lose 20 - 17.
2: Meyer knows that his team must win by a gazillion and a half points to get into the playoff barring an upset special weekend. His team is motivated to not just win but win in a blowout. We are unable to keep up past the first quarter and lose 41 - 10.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||N00B||
I'd like to see Northwest at Baylor tied at 0. Instead of the M00N game we would have a game of N00Bs.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||You don't need permission,||
You don't need permission, but it is considered Kiffin-like to hire a guy away from an AD at the college level or a GM / owner at the profesisonal level without contacting his boss and asking permission first. And besides, few bosses will deny a good employee a chance to interview for a better opportunity, and those bosses that do deny the chance are bad bosses.

The single most apt description for the head coach of the Michigan football team: one of the very best football coaches in the country.
Can you honestly say we have that head coach now ... or could you say that about Hoke when he was hired in January 2011?
