|1 hour 20 min ago||It wasn't just Rosenberg.||
Their editors absolutely loved that story. A lttle extra work, like checking on practice time at other programs, was obviously needed. Finding that violations of the rule were commonplace would have taken the drama out of their story. They preferred a hatchet job to journalism and there is zero reason to think they don't still. Drew Sharp remaining on their payroll is no anomoly.
It's hard to forgive someone (or an institution) who's proud of doing just what you would like to forgive them for. I find it better to ignore them completely.
|20 hours 19 min ago||high floor vs high ceiling||
With the number of QBs Harbaugh is bringing in the value of having a high floor is diminished. It's what we sorely needed under Hoke. We were lucky to pluck Rudock. Taking into account Harbaugh's ability to develop QBs, the success rate for high ceiling types is going to be good.
|22 hours 44 min ago||If Spike redshirts, that means he uses a scholarship||
for two seasons and only contributes for one. On the surface, that simply seems bad for the team.
|22 hours 46 min ago||Indiana was elite for a long time.||
As a basketball program we were neither comparable to them or elite. We were very up and down over the years. We had a few sustained years of elite level recruiting in the Ed Martin era. That wasn't typical for Michigan.
Is just seems silly to put asterisks to what Izzo has done. We've never had a run of success like that. He's done it with good, but definitely not elite, recruiting too.
|4 days 20 hours ago||Blame Billy Donovan.||
Williams was going to take a trip to Florida before visiting here. With him gone, things are speeding up.
|5 days 19 hours ago||The silly comment prompts a question.||
Has Beilein redshirted any guards or wings here yet? Caris had his lifted mid-season and I can't think of anyone else.
|6 days 27 min ago||Forgot about Stevens. I hope he stays in the NBA.||
Donovan's a good coach. I bet his next NBA run will be longer than his last. Even Tarkanian had that beat.
|6 days 2 hours ago||I'd take that bet.||
Who was the last college coach to experience immediate success in the NBA?
|6 days 2 hours ago||Agree with your first point.||
I'll agree with the your second too, if Williams takes the visit. It sounds promising, but scheduling a visit now and waiting until then to commit are not the same thing..
|6 days 2 hours ago||If that was really the issue, the SEC would simply change||
their rule. In fact, they would have already done so. If the NCAA doesn't end these satellite camps, the chances of the SEC keeping their rule is 0.0%
|6 days 2 hours ago||On the subject of flipping.||
There could be some rules put in place to restrict contact with committed recruits, dependent on a request from the recruit. There's also the possibility of an early signing period that the Big Ten would need to have paired with earlier official visits like in basketball.
|6 days 2 hours ago||So, the SEC isn't asking the NCAA to adopt their rule?||
I must have missed something. Like even the slightest peep from SEC coaches about changing their conference rule.
|6 days 20 hours ago||We're probably going to have 13 players that can||
contribute. Several of them won't be in the rotation, so there's a real chance that a pretty good player or two will redshirt. Fall practices should be very interesting.
|1 week 1 hour ago||18 and counting now, including two from Kentucky sites.||
|1 week 6 hours ago||Then why is Cal in his top few schools?||
If he was like most typical one and dones he wouldn't even be considering them (or us).
|1 week 7 hours ago||Here's an article on point from UMHoops.|
|1 week 18 hours ago||Manny was a 4* recruit, a top 40 type.||
Deshawn Sims was a higher 4*
|1 week 19 hours ago||Jerod Ward was ranked #1 in his class.||
He was also a bit of a surprise commit coming from the deep South.
|1 week 22 hours ago||No visit, definitely no offer.||
He talked about visiting last summer, but Beilein did not bring him in.
|1 week 1 day ago||What question is that?||
They just had to go through a process and have the Big Ten sign off on it. It was routine.
It's irrelevant when or where the injuries occurred.
|1 week 2 days ago||Huh?||
He's pulling in monster classes without them. He has less interest in other midwest schools benefiittng from these camps than anyone.
|1 week 4 days ago||Ventura was already in my favorite baseball fight.||
He got pummeled by the oldest player in baseball when he charged Nolan Ryan.
|1 week 4 days ago||Makes sense in theory, but are those guys actually doing that?||
There aren't many crystal balls on the site for recruits to flip.
|1 week 4 days ago||There's no major incentive for Webb here.||
At least I can't see it. There are so many recruiting stories to follow .This one isn't particularly high on the list and Sam hasn't been pushing it. If you were talking about Jaylen Brown, maybe. Sam's not always right, of course, but does anyone have a better track record with their predictions?
|1 week 4 days ago||If a player participates in multiple sports including football,||
the scholarship always counts against football. If he plays basketball, but not football, it always counts against basketball. It's automatic, according to NCAA Rules.
|1 week 5 days ago||Probably not quite that high, but easily the highest||
percentage for football.
|1 week 5 days ago||There's about 4 times as many players in the NFL||
as in the NBA. The numbers change drastically when you compare the spots for specific positions though.
The NBA pays better and has no-cut contracts. Basketball players can also make a good living overseas and can start their pro career sooner. If we're talking abut the #1 basketball player in his class, the decision should be a no-brainer.
|1 week 5 days ago||UNC's scandal involved more than athletics.||
It brought the academic integrity and administrationt of the school into question. At a minimum it did a lot of damage to one academic department. While everyone could agree that it was a bad thing, agreeing how to fix things is not so simple.
|1 week 5 days ago||I can't imagine it's actually going to happen,||
but if fall classes were cancelled that would be the biggest university news story of my lifetime. The NCAA would make all of their athletes able to freely transfer and be immediately eligible. It woulld amount to a self imposed death penalty in all sports.
I don't see how any of the discussion needs to be partisan. That's the type of scenario that practically no politician would risk.
|1 week 5 days ago||I agree. Mental toughness is probably the most important||
attribute in many competitive endeavors. It is in my field. Very few of us acquired it from football.
