As I pointed out above, the Big Ten mandates scholarships are good for 4 years. The Reed Baker days are long gone.
|16 hours 51 min ago||GRIII was far from a five star when Beilein found him.||
His only other offers were from Valpo and Indiana St.. Stauskas was another who moved up in the rankings.
|17 hours 12 min ago||The Big Ten guarantees four year scholarships.||
So that idea is a non-starter.
|2 days 12 hours 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.
|2 days 14 hours 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.
|2 days 14 hours 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.
|6 days 12 hours ago||Blame Billy Donovan.||
Williams was going to take a trip to Florida before visiting here. With him gone, things are speeding up.
|1 week 11 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.
|1 week 16 hours 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.
|1 week 17 hours ago||I'd take that bet.||
Who was the last college coach to experience immediate success in the NBA?
|1 week 17 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..
|1 week 18 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%
|1 week 18 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.
|1 week 18 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.
|1 week 1 day 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 day ago||18 and counting now, including two from Kentucky sites.||
|1 week 1 day 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 1 day ago||Here's an article on point from UMHoops.|
|1 week 2 days ago||Manny was a 4* recruit, a top 40 type.||
Deshawn Sims was a higher 4*
|1 week 2 days 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 2 days ago||No visit, definitely no offer.||
He talked about visiting last summer, but Beilein did not bring him in.
|1 week 2 days 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 4 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 5 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 6 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 6 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 6 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 6 days ago||Probably not quite that high, but easily the highest||
percentage for football.
|1 week 6 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 6 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.
