Hyron Edwards is from Indiana, not Illinois. It is legitimately confusing because he's from a city called East Chicago, but it is in the Region in Indiana.
And in regards to Eron Gordon, it'll be a hard pull for anyone but IU, seeing as both Eric and middle brother Evan (who just transferred to IU from Arizona State as a 5th year guy) are both Hoosier guys.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Vince Edwards||
is from OH not, IN, although it is becoming normal to steal top kids from the Hoosier state.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Seems like the quality||
of kids brought in by Hoke are amazing. Not saying anything about former staffs, just noting how high character the last few classes seem.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Ah yes...||
of course. The silent e gets me again!
|8 weeks 6 days ago||ITH||
I don't know about Bozich being a homer. He has a really good rep, as does his dad.
And it does actually seem like this is something that is on Remy and for him to decide, not a "creaning."
This is from ITH, but it's basically just quotes from his HS coach and mentor. The quote that stuck out to me was (paraphrasing) the coach telling Remy he has to make a final call soon bc it isn't fair to keep IU in the lurch. Bash away.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Sorta OT||
But do you pronounce his last name "Spayt" or "Spite"?
|8 weeks 6 days ago||That would be a douche move||
but where is it said that Abell was forced to transfer?
|8 weeks 6 days ago||IU fans||
hope Remy comes back. He would play a vital role on the team.
Word is that Remy initially wanted to transfer. He said he wanted to play more and be the primary starting point guard on a D1 team, which would never happen with Yogi there. Also of note, all his best friends on the team were the graduating/early entry guys.
Now his mom and all of his support system are encouraging him to stay. I hope he does. Depth and experience, plus great defense, are always at a premium.
However, IU fans like me will readily admit that we have how Crean uses the oversigning rule. There seem to be plausible excuses that could be given for guys like Buss Patterson and Matt Roth, but it still is a rule we don't like. Plus it looks bad to outsiders and furthers the notion that Crean is a win-at-any-cost type of guy (which I don't believe, but gets harder and harder to defend all the time with his antics).
|13 weeks 5 days ago||I agree Minny||
looks awful, but the eye test only goes so far. Their ratings in RPI, SOS, BPI and the like are certainly top 68. If they lose today, they'll be a 9 or 10 seed, win and they're an 8 or 9.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||I think||
Botth Illinois and Minny make it in regardless of outcome. Minny's SOS and quality wins are really good, and Illinois has beaten Gonzaga and Indiana.
For Iowa, I think they need at least 2 wins in the BTT to be considered. Three and they're in. Four, well, obviously...
|13 weeks 6 days ago||Now Adam Schefter||
is saying Quin deal isn't done...
|13 weeks 6 days ago||Quin||
Glover Quin signed too.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||Obviously||
I agree with your sentiment. I simply said I hope these 5 prove to be the best, as they have the potential to be dominating with size. Not stargazing.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||What||
would be your ideal LB group on the field?
|13 weeks 6 days ago||I hope it shakes out like this||
Lewan, Braden, Miller, Kalis, Schofield
|13 weeks 6 days ago||Hmmm..||
What are you skilled at?
|14 weeks 1 day ago||What am i trying to get you to believe?||
I don't care if you believe if I'm a michigan football fan or not. I'm certainly not trolling. You just don't like my opinion. I think highly of Beilein and Meyer and LaVall. I think yesterday's post game was bad by Crean. I trust the guys i talked to who were at the game, including those with Bluiett, and therefore I also believe Meyer acted out of character.
I don't post on football because I don't know as much know about it. Couldn't tell you a cover 2 from a cover 3 if i had to. I'm just a fan. But I know basketball. I played and coach it. So I can only comment on it.
I love MGoBlog. Love the writing and the community. Love what TVH brought on the recruiting front and that Ace is bringing it now. Sorry this perspective is bothering so many. I'll stop posting on it now.
|14 weeks 1 day ago||I root for||
IU in all sports, even football, except when they play Michigan.
Growing up in Novi, I'm also a huge fan of the Tigers, Red Wings, and Pistons. Still have my Alan Trammell jersey, my Chet Lemon autographs from the times he visited little league at Bosco Fields, my Wheaties box with Isiah, Joe D., Laimbeer, and others on it after 89. Hope that suffices for my Michigan fanhood. Lots of people have two teams that are dear to them for various reasons. I've seen multiple posters on here with 2 alliegances, like the Michigan and UVA guy.
|14 weeks 1 day ago||What if||
a Michigan student sells their student ticket to a non-student? Does it still apply? Just wondering. Either way, the IU fan should have expected it.
|14 weeks 1 day ago||Doesn't change the fact||
that there's 2 sides to this, but Crean is the one who comes out looking bad. No doubt about that.
|14 weeks 1 day ago||You are right it's somewhat||
about recruiting, negative that is.
I like Meyer and he's a good coach. Had quite a bit of interaction with him. But it's no secret around Indy that he continued to recruit Yogi and James Blackmon Jr. to Michigan after they both committed to IU, and that he told plenty of recruits IU was dead and never coming back, when he was one who had a role in bringing it down in the first place.
|14 weeks 1 day ago||hee's some twitter stuff||
but since it wasn't captured on video like Crean's, I doubt anthing will suffice as enough evidence for you.
Earlier in the handshake line.... RT
Reports - unconfirmed so far - of what former Sampson ast Jeff Meyer did to kickstart Sunday's dustup with Crean. http://bit.ly/10CcFvI
|14 weeks 1 day ago||My timestamp||
says 8:41 and 8:42.
|14 weeks 1 day ago||Lol||
I honestly didn't remember signing up then, but it makes sense.
I am a fan of both schools. Sounds bandwagon, but I live and die by U of M football and IU basketball. Born in Ft. Wayne, raised in Novi. My family has season tix to the Big House through my dad's company. Grew up seeing games in the mid 80's to late 90's. But all my family is in Indiana, I went to IU, and live and coach hs and AAU (eric gordon all stars) basketball in Indy.
|14 weeks 1 day ago||Dakich||
does love Meyer though, and wasn't pleased with how Crean acted. I wish he would have been more professional. I understand there is tension between the two and a backstory, but it's not the time or place to hash that out.
|14 weeks 1 day ago||sorry||
|14 weeks 1 day ago||Crean was wrong to act like he did||
Meyer told him to F off in the handshake line.
Crean responded by acting like a child, telling Meyer that he helped wreck IU's program and that he knew what he did.
Both were wrong, but Crean, as always, made a bigger show of it. As a fan of both schools, I don't lke what either did, but Crean will obviously make the headline as the head coach and bigger name.
|14 weeks 1 day ago||No it isn't||
At least not with the three guys mentioned.
IU never recruited Robinson excpet in a cursory way(they should have).
Iu recruited McGary, but there were red flags, and the only way they were going to take him was as an early enrollee in the 2011 class (his real HS class before prep).
And Irvin was recruited by IU and Purdue when he was a sophomore. IU and Purdue all offered Devin Davis, Collin Hartman, Basil Smotherman, and Irvin at the same time, and it was first come first serve. IU got the first 2 guys, Purdue got Smotherman, and Michigan made off like bandits with the best of the lot who waited it out. Irvin is a stud. As a HS coach in Indy, I can say Michigan is getting the best wing player in Indiana's 2013 class.
|14 weeks 1 day ago||then also include the articles||
where Roth says he was misquoted and had no issue with Crean, how he handled it, or IU. Crean could've been more forthright, certainly, but no one knows exactly what was said or not said.
and you're putting words in Roth's mouth by implying you knew what he was doing by retracting based on "knowing how things work." truth is we don't know, and maybe he was being genuine that he was misrepresented in the article.
|14 weeks 1 day ago||Dude,||
It's Michigan sources that are saying Meyer told Crean to go F himself, which prompted Crean to act like an idiot. Neither was right, but it's not all on one guy.
No one cares about a hand shake until their guy gets brushed off. No Big Ten coaches like each other, except ones from the same coaching tree. Maybe there's a mutual respect, but they all want to beat the crud out of each other.
