If he is a 3-star can you imagine what someone like Fournette would do to them? Could he run for 49 TDs that game?

Check out Erik in Dayton being real...
|2 weeks 2 days ago||I agree||
with the addition that maybe Harbaugh is #1 since he has a proven record of developing QBs and he is the head coach of a football team (ie could give you a scholarship). But I agree Whitfield is a (the?) big name in the QB development world.

If we take the last 10 (5 games after LeVert injury) or 15 games (LeVert injury) of the season for him, who are his comparators in his "Most Similar Statistical Profile?"
Just curious who that Zak resembled.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||I think this should exist||
Interestingly, I think this should exist (ie the NCAA should not close the loop hole).
I think allowing others schools to come to an area and meet kids/teach the game is a good thing. Yes, it hurts the regional schools (since it gives other schools a chance to meet local kids and "recruit"), but it helps kids. Kids in TX who don't have enough money to travel to Michigan (or any other school that does this) for an unofficial can meet the coaches, learn more about the school etc. [I assume these camps cost money but also have a scholorship program for those who can't afford it]
Also, it allows more high school kids to attend more camps and recieve top level instruction (hopefully inproving their game- the goal of a camp). It is certainly beneficial to all high school players to get more high level instruciton - even if they aren't of the ability to play at UM or the like.
I actually would like to see lots of schools do this (although that would lessen Michigan's advanatage of doing it]
Since I am pro this and think it helps kids, the NCAA will certainly shut it down.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||You are right||
Basically everybody thought the tickets were going to be really hot last year. Tons of people bought season tickets with the sole purpose of reselling them. Then the season started and there was almost no market. I doubt they have very many season ticket renewals this year.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||Or maybe||
they are setting Tomsula up to fail so they can bring in a higher profile coach in a year or two. There really weren't any high profile coaches on the market this year (other than Harbaugh). Maybe they try to get Mora again or Kelly next year. Another year an there may be more high profile college coaches leaving.
Or (more likily) the 49ers' management is just dumb.
"Mr. Tomasula wants to play dirty...well nothing is dirtier than a giant ball of oil."

This is the the perfect post
|17 weeks 2 days ago||freep||
All I could find quickly was the Free Press article so I am not going to link it. But it's references Gannon saying as much on his Sirus radio show.
|17 weeks 2 days ago||Interesting||
I read a Gannon interview that praised how Harbaugh worked with him and was great at seeing things like a QB (obviously) and talking everything out with Gannon.

Not sure if /s, but its a reference to an old tv show: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Herman%27s_Head
|25 weeks 1 day ago||You are correct...||
I thought he was too long of a shot, but I really shouldn't have left him off since there is a "chance" with him.
|25 weeks 1 day ago||My answer||
Ok, since I asked the question I will answer it (sort of). Here is the list of college coaches
Big names: (obviously subjective)
Dabo Swinney, Jimbo Fisher, Frank Beamer, Art Briles, Bob Stoops, Gary Patternson, Charlie Strong, Mark Dantonio, Urban Meyer, Brian Kelly, Rich Rodriguez, David Shaw, Steve Sarkisian, Chris Petersen, Nick Saban, Gus Malzahn, Mark Richt, Les Miles, Hugh Freeze, Dan Mullen, Gary Pinkel, Kevin Sumlin, Steve Spurrier,
Maybe big names: Paul Johnson, Al Golden, Bill Snyder, Mike Gundy, Dana Holgorsen, James Franklin, Gary Andersen, Todd Graham, Jim Mora.
Of those here are who we have left (haven't been talked about, possibility of leaving, good fit, etc): Dabo, Briles, Stoops, Patterson, Strong, Shaw, Richt, Pinkel, Sumlin, Golden, Graham, Mora.
[obviously some of these don't really fit, but I wanted to be over-inclussive]
Ok, homework done.
|25 weeks 1 day ago||Can someone do a research project||
Can someone go through and post the name of every head coach in college and pro football right now (he doesn't necessarily say it is a head coach, but I don't want to make more work for you), and then cross off all the non-winning/non-"big name" coaches and see who we are left with.
Or someone could just post a list of all the "big name" coaches and we could speculate through that....
|29 weeks 2 days ago||Imagine||
Imagine our Offensive advantage if we had him as our coach. I would wager it would be decided and it would mostly flow from his scheme.
How could it go wrong?
|33 weeks 2 days ago||Disappointments||
This is difficult to say because I loved both of these guys, and thought they were going to explode this year...
On offense it has to be Gardner, right? Not totally his fault, but everyone was talking about him taking the leap this year under Nuss and instead he has taken the fall. We have not seen a single game resembling ND or OSU this year where he just took over. His performance this year makes it seem like that isn't going to happen either.
On defense, has to be Countess. Wearing #2, thought of as a All B1G first team contender and instead has been the biggest liability on defense. He cannot keep guys from getting inside on him on slants and has blown some coverage deep as well. Disappointing season for him.
|35 weeks 3 days ago||Compare that to someone like Bo or even Tommy Amaker||
I ran into Bo outside of a Chili's near Seattle maybe 15-20 years back. I was wearing a Michigan hat. He went of his way, unprompted, to say "Go Blue" to me. Nothing major, but made me feel like Bo probably did that to every Michigan fan he saw.
Or Amaker- I ran into him in LA (at LAX) when he was coaching at UM. I gave him a "Go Blue." He slowed down, put down his cell phone (that he was talking on at the time) and said Go Blue.
Nothng major here, but feel like a totally different expereince/feeling compared to your interaction with DB.
|36 weeks 10 hours ago||Lifetime||
And I missed that you said in your lifetime. And since I was not alive in 1969 I lose.
|36 weeks 10 hours ago||No entry||
The obvious answer is 1969 OSU-UM. Can there really be any other answer?
|36 weeks 10 hours ago||I like||
I like that his highlight reel mostly involves him just standing there as the play heads somewhere else.

Kids love the frozen go-gurt
|36 weeks 3 days ago||Perfect||
This was pretty much perfect....
|39 weeks 1 day ago||Hasn't been much to report||
Once the major new broke, there really wasn't much mroe to report. But now that the investigation is over, it has the chance for some more run. Brian Kelly is supposed to be having a press conference shortly. It will be interesting to see what they found and how much news coveragethose findings get going forward (given football is actually starting, probably not much)
|41 weeks 19 hours ago||Your fake daughter Joy is having a good day then||
That latest tweet by Ace (up to 22 former/current players) blows everything else to this point out of the water (or it leat puts the "as bad as UNC" comment in perspective)
|41 weeks 19 hours ago||I am most shocked that this is all breaking now||
The latest reports (as tweeted by Ace) say as many as 22 current/former players. But why is it breaking now? This is supposedly dealing with issues back to 2012, right? And has been under investigation for several months/years, right? So now, right before the start of the football season they come to their conclusions. Really? I have no idea how the administration didn't really push on the investigators (or whomever) to get this wrapped up before the start of fall session so it wouldn't be a big issue at the start of the year/mid fall practice.

Didn't see who posted this. I am surprised you know that movie.

We are old. No recruit would even get the reference.
