i would find this more credible if it was about Tom Crean

Magnus, any chance the staff could be looking at Reese as a FB? He's got kind of a stocky build right? With the LB's they've been hosting and supposedly have interest from, Reese seems like he wouldnt be that high on the LB board.

My favorite part is when he said Speight had problems with his accuracy and spelled accuracy wrong. I hope that was on purpose.

The thing about thieves is....if they hadn't done something wrong in the first place, they wouldnt have to worry about sticking together so tightly.
You may not pass the plays on to anyone, but were pretty quick to announce to the public that your boy is sharing them...

Does Ohio being a more talent rich state than Michigan have something to do with why that has been the Tressel/Meyer model versus what Harbaugh is doing?
Is Harbaugh trying to reach out nationally first to see if he can hook someone early, then moving back inwards towards recruits who theoretically have more knowledge about UM and may be more likely to commit?

Lundqvist is waaayy better looking than Price.

Yes, he apparently was thinking of committing, but deWeaver beat him to it last year. So while Harbaugh may have piqued Costello's interest again, it doesnt sound like he's the only reason.

Gotta get to 100 MGoPoints. Then some magical buttons will appear for you and an Angel will get its wings.

I think the "Belein Bump" comment was a bit of sarcasm since Coach B seems to recruit a lot of under the radar guys who aren't usually highly rated.

I think they try to reach out and get in contact with recruits from further away first and work back towards the home base. Establish connections that otherwise would be hard to develop, then work at home.
It can be a bit easier to get in the ear of a player in Ohio or Michigan a little later in the game than it can be with a guy from Texas or California.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||I think part of the idea is||
I think part of the idea is that a lot of these players are big fishes in small ponds, and that by going against each other in camp settings, you get a more clear idea of who is better.
A player might have film of them doing everything you want them to do, but how much stock do you put into it if they do it against poor competition? Those skills might not translate against the competition they will face in college. At a camp, if they can do some of those things against other top players, then you may be able to trust the HS film a little more knowing that they can do it against anyone.
Not that camps are perfect, and obviously kids who don't camp can still turn out to be studs, but I think its the general train of thought behind camp performance.

It's an unofficial nickname that just the Baseball program at LBST uses. They had a dream season where they went to the CWS despite not having a homefield to use, and they practiced on an all-dirt field. So, they got covered in dirt, won a bunch of games, and rallied around a scrappy nickname.

|7 weeks 17 hours ago||Your'e right. He has been||
Your'e right. He has been given an opportunity a lot of 17-18 year old dream of. But, most 17-18 year olds don't have random people following where they go to school, have people be untruthful towards them about their futures, or have to sign a contract that limits them from making a better decision for themselves should extenuating circumstances arise.
Smith has not in anyway been an attention whore. He didnt make a music video announcing his commitment, or hold a team hostage. His coach has been the one communicating things to the public. Smith is trying to make a decision that is best for him, he isn't lauding it over anyone's head that he is a groundbreaker or asking us to look at him. It's people coming up with decisions about him without being in his shoes that are drawing all of the attention towards him.
He isn't making his own rules, you don't have to sign a LOI in order to play. As others stated above, this route might not be a great thing overall in the future, especially for 3-star type guys, but for right now Smith is playing by the rules and attempting to make the best decision for himself.
