To be clear, I didn't mean that Harbaugh will tell every kid he talks to that they'll play both ways, but if he maintains the practice of using skilled players in such a fashion, then you can bet that elite recruits will ask about it at the very least. Harbaugh doesn't have to promise anything but an opportunity, which I'm sure is all he ever promises. But it's nice to have that history behind him to prove he's not just selling snake oil to kids.

Like it or not, if he is, as I stated "really productive" playing three ways there will be no stopping the early Heisman talk. Nowhere did I say he's going to win it, but the TV analysts always throw out their early hopefuls, and having UM players getting any positive talk after the past few years is a good thing. It doesn't mean he'll win it, but positive press is always good when it comes to recruiting HS kids who have big dreams.

Peppers playing offense (as well as defense and special teams of course) could be the greatest thing to happen for the immediate future of the program, for several reasons, none of which are likely lost on someone as shrewd as Jim Harbaugh.
1. Get the best athlete on the field that much more

Could be a little awkward if some German person addresses him. And junior high hilarious too.

Sound advice, coming from one Dr. Kimble. The problem is that if he ran, he'd probably get away temporarily, looking like he was going to escape, only to get caught before reaching his destination.
|6 days 13 hours ago||It actually does work like||
It actually does work like that, quite often. And in this case, I'm pretty sure Urban is more than capable of figuring out a role for a guy who has (for several years) mostly done nothing but shred other teams once he's gotten the ball in his hands. You have seen Miller play, haven't you? The dude simply has to get touches and the yards will come. This new role won't be much of a transition from his old role as a dual threat QB. The only concern for OSU is his durability.

You mean Harbaugh will make this team so good that we will be forced to play NFL teams? I can see it.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I can't really agree with the||
I can't really agree with the underachieving part of your assessment. If he underachieved with All Conference and All American play, leading to him being a first round draft selection, then I hope we get lots more underachievers - ASAP.
The asshat part is highly probable, however.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Probably not Barwis||
Sounds to me like he's at a Holiday Inn Express.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Over 100 posts and not one of||
Over 100 posts and not one of them from "I Like Burgers". HE IS A FRAUD.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Also in the UP, albeit the||
Also in the UP, albeit the eastern end (in the Soo), you've got the "Big C" from Clyde's and the West Pier drive in burgers. Both are very much worth a stop if you're looking for a good, and large, burger.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||I think he meant Terrelle||
I think he meant Terrelle Pryor, who is there approximately 30-40 hours a week.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||FWIW, Chris Balas has matter||
FWIW, Chris Balas has (quite matter-of-factly) gone on record saying Hawkins will go blue.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Don't sell the guy short;||
Don't sell the guy short; he's both of those things.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Holy shit||
Dude has an NFL build already.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Hello: Willis||

Good thing there's a pill for that nowadays.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||That's only because that's||
That's only because that's the last time ESPN updated its rankings.

If you were a real fan, you'd have left work early to do that.

Yes, but that's just her stage name.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||He had been discussed a bit||
He had been discussed a bit on the Rivals board by a member who seemed to know quite a bit about him. Said member also thought he'd likely be a commit. Voilà!
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Agreed. His comments toward||
Agreed. His comments toward the end of the video about making a difference are so true and insightful, especially for a young guy fresh out of college.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Well he's a former Red, so||
Well he's a former Red, so there's always the Ohio Hall of Fame.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Well alcohol does tend to||
Well alcohol does tend to provide a means for some people to absolve themselves from responsibility or accountability after imbibing, so I guess it's a fitting tribute for ol' Joe.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Thanks for the correction.||
Thanks for the correction. Seems I should've known that, but I mainly recall a HS buddy living in Tucson and saying he was 3 hours behind when we would chat on the phone.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||If he works for the Suns,||
If he works for the Suns, then he likely lives in AZ, which is in the Pacific time zone. So it maybe wasn't all that late for him to be awake and tweeting. He could still be a tremendous douche, though.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Not a good idea, we don't||
Not a good idea, we don't want our boys getting MIP's.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||I totally agree. Tomorrow||
I totally agree. Tomorrow would be a much better day for him to commit.
|6 weeks 23 min ago||I'll be quite depressed if||
I'll be quite depressed if that Despond Fitzpatrick kid doesn't go blue.
