Manny Harris was not recruited by John Beilein

I would approve of a giant Denard tifo in the student section, or a tifo for all the seniors.
is tifo not allowed in college football?

that his comment was not in response to yours?

I approve of this word.
|28 weeks 1 day ago||that is obvious||
but the reason to go to the Rose Bowl shouldn't be out of fear of some over-rated SEC team.

I want us to play a better team.

to commend LeVeon Bell on being the MVP of the 109th best offense in the country.
|28 weeks 3 days ago||you've been a student since 1969?||
that's either a lot of degrees or you've changed majors one too many times
|28 weeks 4 days ago||fortunately||
we still have Morgan, Horford, Beifeldt and Robinson to play the 4 & 5 as needed.
oh, and Big Bird McLimans

I'm just going to kick back and watch Ron English do his thing at EMU

|31 weeks 5 days ago||I'm just hoping...||
that we don't have a repeat of the "Hey, JF Torres is left-footed, let's just throw him in there at left back!"
I like Torres more than most people do, and he didn't do horribly at LB, but cripes, man that's worse than putting him on the wing every game.... ;)
|31 weeks 5 days ago||questionable at best?||
You're comparing Klinsmann, who has been around for all of what 17 months? to Bradley Sr. who was the coach of the USNT for 5 years, and beat Spain in the confed cup in his third season.
I agree that if he doesn't get us to the WC he needs to be shown the door, but what has he done that has been so horrible? player selection? really? so the results are okay, but we are going to complain about which players he's using to get the results? seems silly to me. look at the rag-tag squad he brought to Azteca...

Herbstreit said the same thing when Nick Hill tweeted about Denard.
|45 weeks 3 days ago||I apologize...||
for disagreeing with Magnus. I sometimes forget the affect that doing so has on how one's posts are gauged and interpreted.
As I said, suspend them for practices, a game, or something. Do you actually think they were punished? how are their lives different? how are their roles on the team affected at all? they aren't. it's not a punishment...
but you're right, that IS probably what I would post. What a mind -reader you are. In honesty I would be saying "so... how is this a punishment?"
nowhere have I said that the punishment in this case didn't fit the crime, I've simply said that it's not really a punishment...
|45 weeks 3 days ago||First...||
Whether or not he kicked Newton off the team is irrellevant here. Fact is, Newton was just another player who Meyer recruited that got into serious legal trouble.
But, more to your point, Meyer did NOT kick Cam off the team. Cam stole a laptop - which was one of three times he got in trouble for theft at UF. Despite this, he was able to get the charges dropped for completing a "pre-trial diversion program" and actually played for the Gators later that season.
He ended up leaving UF by his "own choice" when really he was facing expulsion for academic fraud.
|45 weeks 3 days ago||Fair enough...||
We would be talking about the Zooker in that case, no?
|45 weeks 3 days ago||I don't think he cares what we make of him...||
He just knows that at Ohio, if you win, you will be loved, regardless how you do it. Kicking players off the team, suspending them for a few practices, etc... has an effect on whether you will win or lose.
Can't be taking that chance, can we?
|45 weeks 3 days ago||In this case it might be insane||
But a coach has to be held responsible for the players that he brings to campus...
For example, if you have 41 players arrested in 3 years (or whatever the number was) that indicates that maybe you aren't bringing the most morally upstanding young men to the school.
|45 weeks 3 days ago||Urban||
The dude clearly has a track record of tolerating unruly behavior out of his athletes. As somone else said, he's been there for two months... It is quite reasonable to expect that he will continue his pattern of not appropriately punishing his own players.
Also, keep in mind that that whole roster was recruited by the Vest. Not that the Vest was this upstanding moral guy (obviously) but give Meyer a chance to get some of his guys to Ohio and watch the arrests and soft punishments pile up.
Your question is a question of sample size.
|45 weeks 3 days ago||I agree with OP||
The "punishments" are clearly for show... what is the actual punishment? there isn't one. If they stay out of trouble, they will be back on scholarship come September. If they don't stay out of trouble, they'd be kicked out regardless of what the punishment was the first time they got into trouble.
Classic Ohio/Urban Meyer...

UM is kicking a FG, and rather than showing how they got to that point, you show an almost sack by Houston...
you ask for feedback, and my feedback is: "Like, why, man?"
|45 weeks 4 days ago||target man||
Deuce could be a target man at Arsenal, which is probably where they are looking to put him. Sure he's 29, but he was also one of the best goal scorers in EPL on what is - outside from Dempsey, Duff, and Dembele, a garbage team. Further, if they sign him to an 18-month or 24 month contract, what have they got to lose? he's not very expensive considering his production.
Deuce is one of the most accurate finishers in EPL. He would NOT start every game at striker/target man for Arsenal, but that's the beauty of his versatility. I think Deuce would fit in just fine at Arsenal - they play beautiful, smart, one-touch football, and Dempsey is football-smart and cheeky enough to make it work.
|45 weeks 4 days ago||if anything||
it has more to do with if they can afford him. If RVP leaves, they have tons of spare cash. If not, especially after the Podolski signing, they are a bit more strapped for that skrilla.
|45 weeks 4 days ago||The strongest rumors I've heard are:||
I would like to see him leave the EPL and join a top French or Italian side. He needs to be playing Champions League football, but the top 4 in EPL are pretty loaded.
The last thing we need is for Dempsey to go to Spurs and be the next Dos Santos.
