|29 min 17 sec ago||Don't forget, we're looking good for the top player in CO||
for the second straight class.
|37 min 24 sec ago||You're missing the celebrities; the Situation and that rapper||
who lives in a shed.
|6 hours 49 min ago||You see Hudson as a true scat back?||
I don't see that. He's physical with pretty decent size and good, but not great, speed.
|7 hours 7 min ago||All kidding aside, do you think this had anything to do||
with who recruited Cole? I don't.
|18 hours 43 min ago||There is always some unwanted attrition.||
Guys leaving early for the NFL, moving on with careers like Jack Miller, or looking for an even bigger role.
|18 hours 58 min ago||Really, you're worried that SOTS is going to turn away recruits?||
That just seems preposterous, inventing silly things to worry about. If he's not an EE, he won't even be there. If he is, he probably gets to sit next to Charles Woodson If he hates attention, he wouldn't be on Twitter.
|19 hours 29 min ago||Getting McCaffrey to be an EE should be a priority.||
The Stanford acceptances come late. They got several other flips after Hamilton.
|19 hours 33 min ago||No one knows how many yet.||
It will be however many scholarship players we are below the 85 limit for the winter semester.
|20 hours 19 min ago||Eh, they just need good coaches.||
Sarkisian pulled in the #1 ranked class last year, (or #2 depending on the service) and they cracked the top 10 this time after a total mess of a season. Recruiting is not difficult at USC.
|20 hours 31 min ago||Remember OSU's self imposed punishment for tattoogate?||
A two game suspension for Tressel, not even two weeks. He only had to miss the gamedays.
|20 hours 45 min ago||We just beat them soundly in recruiting and that's where||
Dantonio''s dig was directed. MSU tried to flip Onwenu at the end and was negative recruiting with Hill too. That stuff matters a lot and don't tell me we have to wait 3 years to see if this class pans out. The only reason it was even this close is that MSU locked up some guys early where they had a big head start in building relationships. They are going to be very hard pressed to top this class.
If there's one guy in CFB that deserves to have his words thrown back in his face, it's Dantonio. We'll shut him up on the field soon enough.
|21 hours 6 min ago||Never give Dantonio the benefit of the doubt.||
His quote was about others selling hope and everyone knew who he meant.
|1 day 6 hours ago||Where'd did you come with that time? He's posted a 5.08.||
|1 day 6 hours ago||Still makes no sense. They had him as a top 100 player as a TE.||
Since then, he's looked even better as a TE. Downgrading him because you like his potential even more on defense makes no sense, not to me at least. He's not a tweener.
Knocking him down 100+ spots because you think he might get too big in a college S&C program makes no sense either. That's not how S&C works. Their job is to shape players for the positions they are going to play. Whatever their reasons, he's got a coach with a record of using players on both sides of the ball. That potential on defense is an asset here.
|1 day 6 hours ago||Brown has looked at our personnel.||
I think it's hard to argue that it's a better fit for the 3-4 right now. He's good enough to adapt to what he has, while recruiting for what he wants.
|1 day 6 hours ago||You can add Reuben Jones to the ILB candidates,||
probably Winovich too. At least Bush and Kemp are already on campus. The lack of experience was always going to be alarming, but if McCray is healthy we'll have a good mix of options. A scheme with four true DL and a lot of blitzing takes some of the pressure off of them. I still expect to see a lot of nickel.
|1 day 6 hours ago||Kemp also said that Brown wants him to trim a little weight.||
Not sure how you can tell by looking that someone is going to end up big. I'll guess what see what happens after some time in S&C.
|1 day 16 hours ago||Kemp said he would play Mike or Sam.||
I think Uche was recruited for that hybrid role. I'm not sure who elso fits it. The player on the roster who seemed the most like him is Marshall.
|1 day 23 hours ago||Ha ha, like the Big Ten had to make any arguments to||
persuade Rutgers to join. They would have agreed to not getting any of the top in-state recruits as a condition of membership.
|1 day 23 hours ago||I'm sure he would have helped, but zero chance he'd||
be recognized as the recruiter of the year. Good chance he doesn't even keep his job. It helps when you have a lot more to sell than just hope.
|2 days 8 min ago||Hosting satellite camps, absolutely.||
|2 days 30 min ago||I believe he will be replacing TJ Wiest.||
It's not a recruiting staff position as far as I know, more of a coach that can't work directly with the players.
|2 days 4 hours ago||No one has mentioned Gary playing both ways||
and I don't think he will. But how scary might he be as a FB/HB/TE?
|2 days 15 hours ago||Kemp was interviewed by Sam Webb on his signing show||
today. He said he's playing the Sam or the Mike. There is no Buck in Brown's defense. He also said Brown wants him to trim down to 250-255.
|2 days 15 hours ago||Nordin punted ten times this season. Seven went for 50+.||
Imo, it's silly not to think the jobs are going to be decided in competition.
|2 days 16 hours ago||Um, doesn't changing their home schedule with us||
automatically solve MSU's problem?
Changing the schedule is not complicated. You offset a switch in the site of the MSU game, by changing the sites for our games with Maryland. They'd get us at home again and go to MSU again. Then rotate normally as we would with MSU.
|2 days 17 hours ago||So we cultivate one inter-regional rivalry,||
while ND can have as many as they want. Just means we need to choose carefully. We won't schedule all home and homes for non-conference, but we're not going back to three tomato cans either. If I were AD, I'd try for the best schedules that gave us a minimum of six home games every year, with the average closer to seven.
|2 days 17 hours ago||You think a coach just offers to pay a recruit during a visit?||
That's not how it works. You should read the article on SEC bagmen.
|2 days 17 hours ago||Why not 10,000? There are obvious logistical problems.||
You still have a limited number of coaches, practice time and space. I think we have usually ended up with around 115 players on the roster.
|2 days 17 hours ago||When Valenti says something that people want to post about,||
it's usually something he said to bait Michigan fans. He still does that regularly. The last time I listened he was just talking about our big change to SEC type ethics because Harbaugh didn't renew all fifth year scholarships. It made no sense, just trying to mislead people. He's a reliable troll when it comes to anything Michigan. He may have toned his act down a little and gives us a little credit from time to time, but do not be deceived.
