Don't be so naïve. It happens at Michigan. I've heard stories of Michigan basketball recruits in the 90s from some teachers in the metro area. The recruits would sit down for a test and someone would come in and take the test in their place. This kind of thing happens at just about every program. I love college ball just like everyone else on this bird but It's always been about money and always will be.

I don't get it. He hasn't developed a great back since Mike Hart.

Thanks for asking that question.

300 official police reports. My god. That doesn't even count for the calls where a report wasn't taken. Are they recruiting straight out of the county jails?

Paragraphs, man. Use them.

When a cop starts their shift, they're supposed to ensure the back seat is clear before signing it out. The back seat is usually checked before placing a prisoner in the back seat just for instances like this. So if this cop did his job right, then coke probably belongs to this kid.

Reporter guy sounds like a douche. A recruit making a top-ten list must make his job of profiting off 17 year-old boys extremely dificult.

I think a lot of people have overlooked the departure of Jerry Montgomery.

It looks like Nebraska went on a mad dash to fill 12 spots since the start of the new year. Are their commits quality players? It looks like they took commitments from across the entire country.

Their defensive coordinator, Manny Diaz, was supposed to be the greatest thing since canned beer. talk about a disappointment.

This sounds like a major problem for the university.

The humiliation is enough to drive a person to suicide. He would have received better treatment by the media for a DUI or drug offense. I feel bad for the guy.

Buy your ticket on a Tuesday afternoon. I've had good success with that idea in the past.

I heard stories from a retired teacher in the Metro-Detroit area that had a star basketball recruit (B1G school) in his math class. As a result of his failing math grades, the kid could not play in his high school's sold out game. The principal pulled the teacher aside and told him to pass the kid, no questions asked, or it was the teacher that would have a boot up his ass. Teacher passed the lazy recruit as a result.
At the same school, the same teacher told me stories of these big time student athletes having the smart kids take their SAT/ACTs for them. The recruits would sit down, walk out, and be replaced by the brain children. All of it happened in 1990s. Cool story, thanks, bye.

I didn't renew my ESPN membership because everything gets posted on this site hours after it's released on ESPN. I'm starting to greatly dislike these paysites and their 'schocking' headlines to get clicks. I'm beginning to see the darkside in all of these paysites; hounding 16 and 17 year old boys and generating profits off their statements. These kids can't even see what's being written about them! I remember one recruit having to ask a writer on Twitter permission to see an article written about him. These pay sites are just another hugely unethical part of college football.
Now that my rant is over, when is Larue visiting?

Notre Dame 2010. I was there with my buddy. We kept saying he was due to break one for the distance and sure enough, next play he busts a run for 87 yards and the crowd goes completely silent.
|2 years 29 weeks ago||Just like Gruden said, we||
Just like Gruden said, we blitzed because we don't have elite pass rushers. Jibreel Black had a shot to probably end the game but couldn't wrap up the qb.

I've been receiving personal training there for the past month or so. I'm focusing on improving overall strength, cardio endurance and flexibility. I've noticed a huge difference so far. Each session is brutal and exhausting. I highly recommend buying one session to see how your son likes it before investing in a package. I guarantee he'll reach his goals with their coaching.

I'm a member at the Plymouth location. The sessions are the defintion of an ass kicking.

Let's be realists for a moment....It's not about football and student athletes anymore. It's about tv contracts and bowl commissioners getting their massive bonuses.

Is this some kind of April Fools joke?
|2 years 34 weeks ago||I don't understand the||
I don't understand the optimism. Please name one top-20 defense where Michigan effectively moved the football on offense. A weak interior offensive line is bad news.

Ok State and Baylor time. I don't know what the over is but I'll take it.
|2 years 34 weeks ago||Florida State's defensive||
Florida State's defensive coordinator left for Kentucky so the recruitment of Mcquay might not be over.
|2 years 34 weeks ago||It sucks and I wish him well||
It sucks and I wish him well but this opens another spot for the class. Hopefully we can pick up another offensive lineman such as Kenny Lacy or Cameron Hunt. We desperately need depth on the o- line.

Things more productive than the second half against OSU:
- Slamming my fist in a drawer.
- Walking into oncoming traffic.
- Eating cat poop.

Fire Borges? GTFO. The interior oline is weak. Incredibly weak. That's the problem.
