Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.

If it were me, I'd choose Grand Rapids, and probably EGR in particular. EGR has outstanding schools, well maintained, character-filled older homes, and a lovely "downtown" in Gaslight Village. It is adjacent to Eastown, Cherry Hill, and downtown GR, yet is very quiet and peaceful. With close proximity to some of the very best beaches in the state (Grand Haven, Holland, Pere Marquette), a vibrant downtown (GR), and a low cost of living, the area is hard to beat.

And would be in the Hall already had he played for NY or Boston.

Bummed about Trammel. My all favorite all-time baseball player. Great player, and pure class.
|39 weeks 4 days ago||The thing I hate most about||
The thing I hate most about M&M is the corporate-speak. You will never hear anything controversial from either of them because the World Wide Leader wants safe, vanilla, non-offensive content. Twenty four hours of it, every day.

One thing the former regime can't be accused of is bad recruiting. Could be multiple reasons why he wasn't offered. That said, it'll be nice to have Durkin's Florida ties, for sure. I hear there are a couple pretty good players down there.

Not so sure that Weber is solid to OSU.
This came from Rivals two days ago (not $):
"Rivals100 running back Mike Weber of Detroit Cass Tech has only been committed to Ohio State for a few weeks, but is already thinking of taking a look at some other schools."
Alabama has offered, and he is considering taking an official, apparently.

First time I've ever heard of being fucked with no chick.
|42 weeks 4 days ago||Yeah, I'm thinking this is||
Yeah, I'm thinking this is the reason he's dropping out. Miles is a successful coach, and doesn't want to be the chick who sits around waiting to be asked to the prom only after the hot girl says no.

You're right - there will be a ton of pissed off people if it doesn't happen, but waiting on Harbaugh is worth the risk.

Mike and Mike. Reason #267 why I've given up on ESPN. They can't name more than two or three players on the entire roster.
|43 weeks 2 days ago||I'd rather take a calculated||
I'd rather take a calculated risk in hiring a 39 year old assistant than brining in Miles, who's mostly a known quantity but is in the twilight of his career, with "issues". I can't take these coaching changes every 3-4 years.

Yeah, I do.

Yeah, unfortunately. Mattison left UM for Notre Dame, so why not OSU?
Love Mattison, and hope he somehow stays with the new regime.

I see Mone starting at DT. Also see Poggi getting significant time.
With Peppers and Morgan coming back, the defense should be even better next yr.

As a Norton Shores resident, I know how enticing Jackson looks. He's got great size, a great arm, and Mona Shores has been one of the most dominating high school teams in the state this year mostly because of him. It's easy to drink the kool-aid with the hometown kid, but I don't see him making the leap from MAC calibre schools to Michigan.
Shores will play FH Harrison next week, so it'll be interesting to see how he does against an east side power. He's committed to Buffalo right now, but if he keeps playing the was he has, I can see more offers coming his way.

Jon Vaughn. Gained around 1400 yards with 6 YPC and was named Big Ten Player of the Year as a RS sophomore. He was on the cusp of becoming a truly great Michigan RB when he bolted to the NFL.

One of the reasons I sought out and found this site was due to my mounting frustration with ESPN, and specifically with "Entertainment Tonight for Sports" (I think they still call it Sportcenter, though). I agree with Doc - the network will artificially create a firestorm, feed the firestorm for days, if not weeks, and then instantly drop the story as soon as a hotter storm is created. The Tebow stuff was a real embarassment.
I do still enjoy PTI very much, and the 30 for 30 series is almost as good as what HBO Sports produces. I don't bother with much else.

I was hoping that he was going to Michigan University. Damn.

K State was reputedly a terrible defense against the run. I was exprecting to see a ton of Green, and was every bit surprised with how little he played. The bowl game should have been his time to show what he's capable of.

I wouldn't be able to turn my radio off fast enough if I heard Gus Johnson calling a Michigan game.
