Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.

...and I believe he wants to make an early commitment before his senior season.
|2 years 28 weeks ago||Buckle up||
The "buckle up" referance is a joke to on of TomVH's wrong predictions, i cant remember which recruit in particular - but I remember days later the joke was "can I unbuckle?" So who cares what Tremendous facebook page "means" - as if anyone other than the kid actually knows, with 100% certainity, if a commitment will occur.
Either way - hoping for a commitment. Also, there is talk on some boards about potential good news on the basketall front coming soon - so we will see if that plays out.

Anyone know somewhere to listen to the game for free online?
|3 years 11 weeks ago||The rumblings...||
... are starting to sound more and more likely that O'Daniel will be a much tougher pull that expected, he just had a good visit to Clemson who he is also very high on,.
Also hearing the staffs' interest is not nearly as high as the other 3 linebackers. O'Daniel is basically the same linebacker as Ross from 2012 and we were interested in O'Daniel and Fuller duo (and pulling Fuller from Va Tech is as likely as getting stealing the third plumlee brother from Duke)
If we land land McCray and Gedeon we will hold a spot for Levenburry (5* talent) and we should be very happy about that. All three of those LB's offer something slightly different, and they have the impressive size at the position that we didn't have in 2012.
My guess is we land all three, I hope we do it quick and move on to the next positions. The current guess is that this class will be around 23 ish, sure "rankings" don't matter but you have to be excited that how "the team" is shaping up.

I would like to see a Penn State night game.
|3 years 14 weeks ago||Flamebait? really?||
It was conversation bait. Thanks for blocking it out, I guess I will explain myself:
"He'll be offered on his visit this weekend." [assumption, lacks reasoning (although highly likely, yes)]
"It was only a matter of time until this guy blew up." [Assumption]
"He is totally legit." [Reasoning for assumption. I hope U of M gets all of the totally legit players for 2013.]
If he improves his footwork & pass blocking aspect of his game. [Thanks, These are (generally) the two areas of improvement for every OL prospect, even more so for juniors]
He could shoot up the rankings. [Rankings? These are the earliest released rankings, ever. Rankings are usually influenced by their offers sheet and most of these kids don't have half of the number offers they will have by the start of summer.
Since when is posting one's thoughts flamebait. Nothing I wrote was irrerational. We (myself included) spend a lot of time praising aquaman for his work. But sorry for expecting slightly more insightful posts from someone who has one on one interaction with the recruits. Again, I am a fan aquaman and enjoy watching you "build your rep."
|3 years 14 weeks ago||From a fan...||
.. aquaman I am having some difficulties with your last statement. I have an issue with literally every sentence. I just thought i would let you know this, because normally I am a fan of your work and think your a nice spark to a down site #nohomo.

Williams signed his LOI with Auburn, not sure about Croom. Doubtful.

Ha he is a junior in highschool? He has a summer, a fulll season and an additional summer to add extra highschool weight? Sounds like a solid SDE in a 4-3 or a 3-4.
|3 years 18 weeks ago||Don't forget||
.. Su'a Cravens #20... he holds three offers, early 5 star on rivals..recently said Michigan will get an official visit.
|3 years 19 weeks ago||Needed that.||
..now what about Hightower? That would return almost no experienced linebackers if he leaves too.

No neg bans for this bud. No one blames you, a new city can be hard, even if it is one as cool as Chicago. I'm not from Chicago though, so good luck to you. Advice: Go out and get involved in some stuff, open gym at a rec center, poker room, places you'd think you'd find people like yourself.

Nice stuff aqua, its quality work.. keep it up.

...I'd like for him and Tate to transfer there. Rich Rod is getting the band back together.
|3 years 19 weeks ago||Transitioned form Sparty to Wolverine||
Never was really a college football fan, I was a basketball player (and soccer) in highschool, so I was always a Tom Izzo fan, and I remember rooting for Drew Stanton in the game went he got injured.
But then as I started becoming a college football junkie, I realized I liked Michigan, a lot. About three years ago, I went to East Lansing for the Michigan vs. Michigan State game, and repped the Maize and Blue colors, like Sting ripping off the white and black nWo shirt and revealing a wolfpack shirt underneath it.
Now today, I am over the top go blue in every sport, I need to find something else I can talk about ha.

Watch for the team theme to shift from dreads to flow as we shift players recruited by the different coaching staffs. There are a few players and commited recruits who have the potential for some flow.

Aces up your sleeve.... i see what your trying to do here. Nice.
|3 years 19 weeks ago||Then you get these comments||
Then you get these comments agreeing with the poster, mgouser Blue in Yarmouth comment: "It looks like this guy is just as much behind the 8ball as RR."
O'Brien is 100x more behind the 8ball then RR, he isn't even on the table.
|3 years 19 weeks ago||I didn't miss the point, alot||
I didn't miss the point, alot of people are making it, Greenie said the same thing this morning on Mike&Mike
Any alumni who is so blind that they are actually angry with the "outside the family" hire, is just as ignorant as the dumb 18 year old who riotted after JoePa fired.
This was an istitutional issue from the top down, and not a recruiting violation one, but a child molestation issue. You have to dump house, and go a different way and sell people on a "New Penn State."
The issue with O'Brien is that he is from "outside the family" and unqualified. You can't be both, and thats why the alumni are angry and it will be very interesting to watch going forward.
|3 years 19 weeks ago||I don't even need to read||
I don't even need to read this whole garabage post to disagree with it.
Michigan's coaching search (RR) and PSU's are in no way similar, other than the fact that they are two long established schools searching for a new coach.
The PSU scandal is unlike any issue in the history of sports, let alone college, or college football.
You have to imagine that those "PSU guys" didn't want the job after what has happened, who would?
|3 years 19 weeks ago||Get out of here... The fact||
Get out of here... The fact that Joe Bolden was named 1 of 2 team captains and is in on almost every play, already has a couple TFL makes it well worth the watch. Hopefully Garnett does go blue though.
Richardson on the other hand... struggling a bit

|3 years 20 weeks ago||I can't even accurately||
I can't even accurately decribe what I felt when they cut to the sign. I hated it. I hated it in 100 different ways. If any of you four involved are reading this blog, please know that I hate you.
Making a sign about a team were not playing, a team that has beat us the last four years? and one that isn't even our primary rival? Thanks for making our fanbase look small and weak on a very national level.
|3 years 20 weeks ago||Right...||
Oh ... cool.
Fact: BCS Bowl wins help the state of a program.
Sure, there have been almost hundreds of situations like the ones you have mentioned, sure you can say the bowl games don't mean squat, which they really don't, and that there should be a playoff.
But Brady Hoke does things the right way, and under the current college football structure, the goal is to win BCS Bowl games, we did that this year, in a "transition" year, and that is good for the program and will hopefully translate into a positive off season (ie: recruits, returners working harder, system familiarity etc...)
Forgive me for thinking positive. Hail.

I don't know I saw high hands quite frequently. It is a whole different football game when you are going against a 6'6" QB. Can't expect to see many balls blocked at the line.

Relax, that is for a different day.
Stop with the negative thoughts, think of something sweet... like bathing in sugar.
