Lots of food and lots of lifting will do that to you. Bulking up in a decent strength program isn't a difficult thing as long as you load up on clean calories.
|5 years 48 weeks ago||Lamecakes.||
|5 years 48 weeks ago||Or he said it because he||
Or he said it because he coached the kid for 3 years and knew more about his skills than anyone else, and he didn't think he was quite ready to play in the NFL yet.
College football fans are fucking retards.
|5 years 48 weeks ago||You're bitching about hearing||
You're bitching about hearing about Tebow and yet you go and start a discussion about him. Christ.
|5 years 48 weeks ago||Safety was a catch-all for FS||
Safety was a catch-all for FS and SS. I figured you'd realize that, especially since you overlapped the positions anyway.
|5 years 48 weeks ago||And it scared the shit out of||
And it scared the shit out of me when I was 10.
|5 years 48 weeks ago||The two-deep at safety so far||
The two-deep at safety so far is looking like Vlad/Williams/Woolfork/...and Jared Van Slyke.
|5 years 48 weeks ago||He's a true senior; started||
He's a true senior; started vs. Boston College in the first game of 06 and has missed only one start since.
|5 years 49 weeks ago||That would be Michigan of the||
That would be Michigan of the Central variety that got the 7 AP votes and not U of M
|5 years 51 weeks ago||I'm currently in the northern||
I'm currently in the northern Chicago suburbs right now...and...
I too would choose Northwestern over State if given the chance. My kid brother is a Sparty but if I'm gonna smell cow shit and live in cornfields for 4 years, it ain't gonna be in East Lansing. I would (and did) head up 127 to Mt Pleasant and be able to just walk right out my front door into a cornfield. Seclusion can be nice.
Academics + lakefront campus = win
|5 years 51 weeks ago||Considering they had a DB||
Considering they had a DB commit to play for CENTRAL Michigan last year, I'm gonna go with no.
|5 years 51 weeks ago||They're jerseys, who gives a||
They're jerseys, who gives a shit. Blue versus Red would kick ass.
|5 years 51 weeks ago||Ding ding ding.||
Ding ding ding.
|5 years 51 weeks ago||He's making the move from||
He's making the move from right out to left out.
|5 years 51 weeks ago||What uproar? The bitching||
What uproar? The bitching about it on this board?
|5 years 51 weeks ago||I have a feeling they're||
I have a feeling they're paraphrasing "premium" info from Rivals and Scout.
I don't have a problem with it. Paying for a bunch of bullshit adjectives about high school kids from old midgets like Tom Beaver is fucking creepy.
|5 years 51 weeks ago||+1 point for "shitting out||
+1 point for "shitting out kids"
|5 years 51 weeks ago||Didn't do any favors for the||
Didn't do any favors for the school?
It would seal the deal for me...
|5 years 51 weeks ago||They're big, and they're||
They're big, and they're fast; who said they're going to play a typical bookend tight end role?
RichRod has experience with utilizing a big and fast guy like Owen Schmitt. Koger and Webb can line up in the traditional position, slot out, or slide back to an H-Back type spot. All that has to be done is getting the ball to them to make plays.
All we can do is just wait and see. The tools are there, let's see how they're utilized.
|5 years 51 weeks ago||When it comes to recruiting||
When it comes to recruiting high school ball, the level of competition is much more important than whether the team is winning championships or not. Ball on the western side of the state just isn't as competitive as say, the Detroit PSL, and there's just MORE players on the east side of the state.
Look at Hoover High in Alabama. Prestigious program, had their own TV show, won championships...and they don't put out too many high level recruits. Stronger competition makes for better players.
|5 years 51 weeks ago||I remember reading||
I remember reading *somewhere* that Sadler may not have shown too well at the Michigan camp/kicking session he attended.
|5 years 51 weeks ago||I agree. If you disagree with||
I agree. If you disagree with the OP, NEG POINTS FOR YOU!!!
|5 years 51 weeks ago||FAIL!||
|5 years 51 weeks ago||Fuck this anonymous point||
Fuck this anonymous point system, by the way.
Allow me to reiterate my point: BLACK (and white!) TEENAGERS LIKE NIKE.
|5 years 51 weeks ago||I went to public high school||
I went to public high school a city over from Detroit and saw it first hand. Teenagers are materialistic little punks, and football recruits are no exception. The need to maintain an image and perception is more prevalent among athletes because they're the "cool kids". This isn't the 80s: they're not doing it with Adidas.
|5 years 51 weeks ago||I wasn't going to say this,||
I wasn't going to say this, but...it needs to be said.
Look at the amount of recruits coming from poor areas and inner city areas. Brand loyalty and perception is HUGE among these kids. You're not gonna see black kids in the hood rocking Adidas kicks and shirts, they're wearing Nike Dunks, Air Force Ones, and Jordans.
These kids love their Nike.
|5 years 51 weeks ago||Nope. The AD Dave Heeke||
Nope. The AD Dave Heeke signed a deal for the 09 season. Adidas is simply giving the schools more money than Under Armour/Nike/New Balance.
|5 years 51 weeks ago||Toss Central Michigan on that||
Toss Central Michigan on that list too. The deal with Adidas kicks ASS and outfits every single varsity AND club sport with affordable gear. We used to be supplied by NEW BALANCE. I didn't even KNOW they made anything but shoes.
Just EPINION, no SUGARcoat.
|5 years 52 weeks ago||Dude... Deep.||
|5 years 52 weeks ago||It's refreshing to read||
It's refreshing to read something like this from a player: http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=4368436
Bronson Arroyo kicks ass.
