Why not wait to see what the coaches have to say at the BBQ. I hope this doesn't turn out to be another Jonathon Hankins situation where we slow play a talented instate kid who plays a huge position of need and ends up playing as a freshman for a hated rival (and yes I realize Hankins issue was not grade related)
|4 years 17 weeks ago||Allen Trieu said on WTKA this morning||
that Scout just finished ranking the FB's so he may get a similar ratings bump on Scout.
|4 years 17 weeks ago||T-Rob will not be offered a 5th year||
so that basically leaves 4 outside WR's. We need 2 more.
|4 years 17 weeks ago||We need 2 DT's and 2 WR's||
add those to Wormley and Diamond and call it a day. Pass on RB and QB this year as we aren't going to get any of the highly rated guys unless something crazy happens with Dunn this weekend.
|4 years 17 weeks ago||Has it been confirmed that Talbott is done?||
I know it's been rumored but I had not seen confirmation.
|4 years 17 weeks ago||He will eat your dick like Hobiyashi||
Edit: damn it- Anyone know how to embed this?
|5 years 6 weeks ago||Sorry but perception matters, particularly||
in recruiting. Sure the overall record is what matters most to Brandon, RR and the team.
BUT in the minds of many, particularly recruits it matters a lot when you win and who you beat. For example, if we beat Iowa with Tim Jernigan present it might mean more in his recruitment than a win against Illinois a month later.
Not to mention the fact that it does seem like RR's teams ride momentum both up an down so a win this saturday might increase confidence and thus pay dividends down the road, while a loss could do the oppposite.
|5 years 6 weeks ago||I'm hoping they are able to redshirt Horford||
this year to spread out the big men a little more and to give him a chance to bulk up. We may not have that luxuary but it would be nice for ballance sake.
|5 years 6 weeks ago||The standard line in poker is there is a sucker||
at every table and if you look around and don't see one, you are the sucker. Hopefully that doesn't hold true here and there are other cream puffs in the lineup.
|5 years 6 weeks ago||Totally Disagree||
This game is huge. Lose and everyone will beleive that we are headed to our 3rd straight Big 10 slide (including possibly recruits). Win and it buys RR a lot of goodwill and patience.
|5 years 6 weeks ago||Tim Hardaway Jr. needs to start. Period.||
Here's the lineup I'd like to see:
SF: Hardaway Jr.
Douglas first off the bench at PG and SG. Christian backs up at PF and Vogrich fills in at SG and SF. Whoever doesn't start at C between Morgan and McLimans backs up there. Horford redshirts.
|5 years 6 weeks ago||An NIT berth would be a huge accomplishment||
for this team but it doesn't seem likley at this point. So much youth and inexperience its hard to expect many of them to develop right away. See e.g., 2010 UM Secondary.
|5 years 6 weeks ago||How about Michigan Swimming?||
And all the gold medalists that have attended?
|5 years 6 weeks ago||Sweet- more Wide Receivers!||
I know we are recruiting many defensive players but I won't be satisfied until we have signed SEVERAL more stud db's and lb's. I would frankly prefer that the rest of the class be on the defensive sife except for 1 or 2 OL's.
|5 years 6 weeks ago||Is it really that shocking a proposition||
that we would lose a ton of players to transfer if RR was fired? Didn't we just see the same thing when lloyd retired?
|5 years 6 weeks ago||Please tell me you are joking||
I will never understand this attitude. I hope Sparty losses every game they play and I feel the same about OSU. Who gives a crap if our loss "looks better"? We aren't playing for an NC. For better or worse, our record will speak for itself
|5 years 6 weeks ago||what is the goal||
of your post? I'm not sure what's more useless, the repetitive posts about Denard, the defense, etc. or the repetitive criticisms by you, Magnus and others about said posts.
Its like watching punk loitering teenagers against grumpy old men yelling at them to get off their lawn. Its impossible to root for either side.
|5 years 6 weeks ago||ummm- isn't that the definition||
of square one?
"There are 17 freshmen defenders on the roster.."
|5 years 6 weeks ago||Agreed. I'm not sure I would have gladly taken this start||
Sparty was the most important game on our schedule for numerous reasons: 1) It reinforces all the crtiques that UM is finese and Sparty is tough, 2) Sparty could easily make the Rose Bowl now which is nauseating in itself, 3) the Sparty love fest will go into warp drive, 4) perception is often reality in recruiting and the perception locally is that State's future is now as bright or brighter than ours, 5) we play at MSU next year with a serious chance for them to take 4 straight, and 6) I just can't stand the idiot spartan fans.
|5 years 6 weeks ago||We are a 7-8 win team going into the bowl||
Always were. Nothings changed. This is and will be a very loooooooong and painful rebuilding.
|5 years 7 weeks ago||My guess is he's going on a free trip||
to watch MSU. Given his background there is virutally no chance this kid ever goes blue.
|5 years 7 weeks ago||Les Miles is Wayne Fontes||
the only difference is that even Wayne Fontes can win a title in College Football if everything goes right beacuse there is no play-offs and no home field advantage in the post-season.
|5 years 7 weeks ago||I was just about to ask the same thing||
Time to change the Cass Tech team name to the Lollipop Guild
|5 years 7 weeks ago||I am still having flashbacks to that game|
|5 years 7 weeks ago||Beat State and I will rest easy||
for the first time in the RR era.
|5 years 7 weeks ago||totally agree||
I am at the point where I dvr the games and fast forward through many of the defensive series because I can't bear to watch the Groundhogs Day disaster over and over again.
|5 years 7 weeks ago||Today's game suggest nothing we didn'tn already know||
which is that our offense can win any game on our schedule and our defense can lose any game on our schedule. Nothing has changed.
|5 years 8 weeks ago||So much for all the Dr. Phillips glee||
from earlier this week. This sounds pretty bad and I really hope none of our recruits were involved.
|5 years 8 weeks ago||I am always amazed when these questions come up||
like there is any other answer than F No! I would be perfectly happy to see Sparty lose every game every year from now till the end of time. Why would I ever want them to win?
|5 years 8 weeks ago||I thought he did a pretty good job as an announcer||
sounded a bit like his dad on occassion which is not a bad thing.
