|2 hours 24 min ago||This added very Little to the story that broke at the end of||
January. The allegations against the current staff are very minor. It would have been easier to negative recruit before the details were released, than it would be now.
|2 hours 33 min ago||The NCAA said the UNC was out of their jurisdiction,||
then changed their mind after more reports came out. It's a very serious manner and I think the NCAA is now acting correctly by letting other investigations play out. I suspect member schools will be divided about the appropriate response, much like they were about Penn State. The ultimate decision about punishment will be hammered out by school presidents and ADs, not by their typical process.
|13 hours 17 min ago||Surprised to see the low confidence level in Hansard.||
Have to think that seeing Gary and other NJ players on the field is going to help us even more in recruiting there.
|21 hours 48 min ago||You're right, Alabama is a football factory.||
A few other powerhouses recruit at such a consistently high level as to stay in the playoff conversation. Most of the other contenders are going to cycle in and out. They lack the depth those classes bring. Other factors are very important too. #1 is QB play. #2 is retaining your contributors. We're expected to be better than OSU this year because they lost nine underclassmen to the NFL and we've got Lewis and Butt coming back. #3 is related, having a lot of experience on the roster, especially along the lines. We're real strong in #2 and #3 and optimistic about #1.
2016 should be an up year for us, but we need two more strong recruiting classes stay at that kind of level going forward, at least in terms of expectations. 2017 is hopefuly the last year where a couple of relatively weak classes will be a concern.
|1 day 14 hours ago||Kevin Jones decided between VT and PSU.||
I don't remember us being a serious contender.
|1 day 15 hours ago||Pro potential is a major component of the upper||
echelon rankings. I would have been very happy with Leonard Fournette, but I think you're corrrect about the relative chances of success. Pairing Gary with our current DL should really help him get off to a good start.
|1 day 15 hours ago||Did you draw a distinction between composite and consensus||
|1 day 15 hours ago||Yes, and we've already offered ten Freshmen, class of 2019||
|1 day 16 hours ago||When you punish schools for taking JuCos, you are actually||
just punishing the kids who went to JuCo. What reason is there for doing so other than it favors Michigan?
|1 day 16 hours ago||He'd better not. The practice is during a quiet period.||
I would imagine the staff will be extra careful about following the rules on this trip. No in person contact is allowed. Having the IMG kids watch practice can't hurt though.
|2 days 13 hours ago||Caup, your posts are getting worse and worse.||
Let's not start calling certain players "dead wood". You're combining your concern trolling with regular trolling. "Dead wood"? Seriously, who says that, but I digress.
If your pantes are going to get in a bunch any time Harbaugh gets some negative press, start going commando. He's always going to be under a microscope. Writers lover to jump to conclusions. Some have it in for Michigan anyway. There will even be occasions the criticism is justified. How could he possibly operate with the goal of avoiding that bad press that makes you so unhappy?
|2 days 14 hours ago||I've said this before, but the idea of having a set number in||
each class is completely unrealistic. If you make the number 25 a year, then you are allowing 125 scholarships for football. With Title IX that means adding 40 to women's sports. Very few schools can afford that, so they will mostly cut men's sports to account for those extra football scholarships.
We all know schools will end up with less than 125, but you cannot promise any lower number, then you'd be cutting kids to get there. So scholarships for athletes will go unused. And just how will accepting JuCos and other transfers be handled? No one is going to want to use five year spots for players that will only be on campus for a year of two. So you end up restricting the opportunities of athletes to move
This idea also punishes programs for successes. You're punished for playing freshmen, for players graduating in four years and starting their careers, in or out of the NFL. There's no realistic justification for that..
There are going to be some downsides to any system. You can try to address those in the current system with rules like four year guarantees and you can create brand new problems.
|2 days 14 hours ago||I'm sorry, but this is so stupid.||
They don't have to cut four players. Four players have to leave. That's not the same thing and they already know the intentions of some not to return.
Are people already forgetting that they took fewer players in this class than the 30 or 31 many were forecasting? This was completely by choice, as Viramontes and Pie Young were ready to come on board. We are also taking no greyshirts, despite by all accounts having a recruit that was originally offered as one.
I'll gladly bet that we'll be under 85 in the spring, probably by more than one..
|3 days 16 min ago||Other schools have been doing it for years for bowl practices.||
Alabama even paid to upgrade the facilities at Dee Hart and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix's HS.
|3 days 20 min ago||Why wouldn't Maryland work as the third team?||
And why to the other poster, is it more complicated than switching the games between those three schools for two years?
|3 days 12 hours ago||Joshua Ross and Drew Singleton are two likely commits..||
You can be sure the reason for not offering the #1 player in the country is something other than we're recruiting someone else at his position.
|3 days 16 hours ago||It's not really a loss. We're hiring coaches between jobs||
to low paying analyst positions they are over-qualified for. It's a win-win while they're here, but the only way they're staying is if we can promote them, like if Fisch had left.
|3 days 19 hours ago||Don't forget, we're looking good for the top player in CO||
for the second straight class.
|3 days 19 hours ago||You're missing the celebrities; the Situation and that rapper||
who lives in a shed.
|4 days 1 hour 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.
|4 days 1 hour ago||All kidding aside, do you think this had anything to do||
with who recruited Cole? I don't.
|4 days 13 hours 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.
|4 days 13 hours 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.
|4 days 14 hours ago||Getting McCaffrey to be an EE should be a priority.||
The Stanford acceptances come late. They got several other flips after Hamilton.
|4 days 14 hours ago||No one knows how many yet.||
It will be however many scholarship players we are below the 85 limit for the winter semester.
|4 days 14 hours 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.
|4 days 15 hours 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.
|4 days 15 hours 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.
|4 days 15 hours ago||Never give Dantonio the benefit of the doubt.||
His quote was about others selling hope and everyone knew who he meant.
|5 days 33 min ago||Where'd did you come with that time? He's posted a 5.08.||
