|3 years 17 weeks ago||No 9-game conference schedule||
B10 will reverse its decision to go to a 9-game conference schedule. You heard it here first.
|3 years 29 weeks ago||Clearly bogus||
I just went through their website and the content is extremely limited. I am guessing that maybe this is a dummy site set up by someone as a sample newspaper template or something similar. It doesn't explain the existence of the ND article (maybe that was a hack job), but no way is this a legitimate newspaper website that has been up and running for a long time.
|3 years 29 weeks ago||Question for the board?||
Has anyone even heard of this newspaper before? It is supposedly based in Owosso, Michigan.
|3 years 35 weeks ago||I agree.||
Watching Jake yesterday, I did not see a speedster, but he has a good frame and seemed to run good short/medium routes. He looked to me like he might make a solid TE eventually if he can put on some weight. He dropped one pass, but most of the other issues were either Connor Brewer's innacuracy or just the way the entire Chaparral team was steamrolled by Bishop Gorman. They had him at DE for a few series and BG ran over him like he wasn't even there. To be fair, they pretty much ran over everyone like they weren't even there.
Still, I question whether Jake has the speed to be an elite WR at the D-1 level. Maybe he will grow into a possible DE (but, honestly, he didn't look like he had any sort of killer instinct; there was nothing that screamed out future DE to me). More likely, assuming he has good hands and can block, he could turn into a solid TE. But, I agree, I don't think he warrants an early offer.
|3 years 35 weeks ago||Ditto||
Maybe Roh had an off night, but he wasn't all that impressive.
|3 years 35 weeks ago||Connor Brewer||
Is anyone as underwhelmed by Connor Brewer as I am?
|3 years 35 weeks ago||Whatever you want to believe.||
And, trust me, the world doesn't care what people think of him "around these parts". Go look up LSU Football in Wikipedia and see how his record compares to all of their previous coaches. He will probably end up with a better record than Saban's when all is said and done.
|3 years 35 weeks ago||La la land||
You guys are in your own dream world. The only reputation Les Miles has is as (a) one of the best coaches LSU has ever had, (b) one of the the kings of trick plays and (c) a grass eater. Even the clock mismanagement stuff will fade in time because, well, he won all those games. No one is going to care if he plays these players so long as LSU wins.
|3 years 36 weeks ago||No, not necessarily.||
I am sure, given all that has gone on, that there are regular back and forth conversations between the NCAA and OSU. But, no, I highly doubt the NCAA automatically gives a heads up to programs every time they receive information about a violation. The formal notices the NCAA provides are a Notice of Inquiry and a Notice of Allegations. The NCAA might have received information in May during an interview with TP and has been investigating those violations (along with all of the other reports) since that time. We will know for sure whether TP admitted to additional violations when the NCAA issues either a NOI or a second NOA.
|3 years 36 weeks ago||UTL Game||
Shaq Thompson: I would like to hear more from Michigan.
Translation: I would like them to invite me for an official visit so I can attend the UTL game with Jordan Payton.
|3 years 36 weeks ago||Yes (and No)||
If he only told the NCAA and not OSU, at least the NCAA cannot charge OSU with lying (or hiding additional violations) when it filed its written response to the NOA and answered questions at the August 12 hearing. But, if Pryor did accept money and benefits from Sarniak after the NCAA told him he could not in 2008, then these are new/additional violations that will result in a second NOA and a second hearing. And more penalties.
|3 years 36 weeks ago||Buckle up!||
|3 years 37 weeks ago||Quite the little name dropper||
... isn't he?
|3 years 37 weeks ago||Wow!||
Well, if they are so busy changing the world in ways far more significant than the rest of us, what are they doing on MGoBlog checking the Danny O'Brien thread?
|3 years 38 weeks ago||Yes, I know.||
And I believe he tweeted last night (though maybe it was someone else) that Armani was likely to let the coaches know today if we would get an official visit. That is why I asked.
|3 years 38 weeks ago||Thanks!||
You're clearly the busiest guy on here (not to mention the most pestered) and yet you are the only one who took the time to give me a polite and helpful response. Thank you..
|3 years 38 weeks ago||Armani Reeves||
Sorry for the thread hijack, but since it's a thread telling us to stop asking about O'Brien, I will ask about Armani Reeves. Any news on his decision to forgive our stupidness and put us back in his top three? Any news on if we will get an official?
|3 years 38 weeks ago||Tommy, can you hear me?||
Don't take no for an answer. Show up tomorrow anyway. When they ask why, say "It's Michigan."
|3 years 38 weeks ago||Really?||
Are they frickin' nuts?
|3 years 38 weeks ago||FL, PSU, WISC||
In addition to ND, FL, PSU and WISC were his finalists, but the only school he has visited is FL. Looks like he is favoring the Midwest, and if his first visit after the meltdown at ND is to Ann Arbor, we are probably in as good a position as anyone.
|3 years 38 weeks ago||NSFMF||
Per ISD, he has cancelled his planned visit to South Bend.
|3 years 38 weeks ago||OSU wins B10 "East"||
Also, CFN has OSU winning the other division, with a 10-2 (6-2) record. Wisky also at 10-2 (6-2), which must mean OSU wins the tiebreaker. How cool would it be if it played out this way, but OSU had to watch us play Wisky in the inaugural BTCG because they are barred from postseason play?
|3 years 40 weeks ago||Shane Morris||
I read somewhere that Shane will be at an elite 7-on-7 event in Florida soon and that two of his teammates will be Dwayne Stanford and Wayne Morgan and that he plans on recruiting them hard. I know it's been repeatedly said that the Wayne Morgan ship has sailed, but I still would love to land him. I wouldn't mind stealing another highly ranked Ohio kid in Stanford either.
|3 years 41 weeks ago||Garnett & Banner||
I think it might work out best for everyone if Diamond takes his time and all three of Diamond, Banner and Garnett have a chance to make official visits. All three are studs and having them visit might help the coaches determine who is the best fit.
|3 years 43 weeks ago||Wait, wha????||
Per Urban Dictionary:
|3 years 44 weeks ago||No||
Worst case is both Pipkins and O'Brien want to come to AA but we turn one away so we can squeeze in a career backup QB who never sees the field, and then the elite DT we turn away ends up at Sparty or ND or Nebraska or Iowa or OSU.
|3 years 44 weeks ago||2 QB's in 2013||
We can take 2 QB's in 2013.
|3 years 44 weeks ago||Agree.||
And, FWIW, we only have Denard, Devin and Bellomy this year (and Bellomy will be a true freshman). We probably have the best situation @ QB in the B10.
|3 years 44 weeks ago||Kiel or two DT's||
Pipkins & O'Brien.
|3 years 44 weeks ago||As we say in Chicago||
