|1 hour 51 min ago||But Toussaint was an absolute||
But Toussaint was an absolute burner. Big time track star, and one of the fastest guys on the team at the time.
|9 hours 3 min ago||He could be a good FB||
He could be a good FB candidate. If his LB scouting report is "loves contact, lacks ideal speed" then LB could be great. He has the build for it too.
|9 hours 48 min ago||If we were stretching a bit||
If we were stretching a bit for an in-state LB, I would have preferred the younger Ojemudia, though I know they're not the same type of LB. And I agree with Magnus that bodies are always better than open scholarships. People weren't psyched when we signed Desmond Morgan or Jake Ryan and those are the two best LBs we've had in years.
|1 day 7 hours ago||The line of thinking here is||
The line of thinking here is that if a kid who really wanted to come here picks a clearly inferior program, t likely means his spot isn't available because it's going to be filled by someone to coaches prefer. Conventional wisdom suggests he would commit here if his spot was available.

Williams's crystal balls all going to the Gators too.
|1 day 8 hours ago||You seem to be limiting your||
You seem to be limiting your definition of "in terms of football" to include only the win-loss record of the team in 2015. There's a lot more to the football side of the decision than just that.
|1 day 8 hours ago||If you say he's even with||
If you say he's even with Williams, he's still behind Butt, Hill, Bunting and likely a true fresh coming in. And maybe even someone like Shallman. That doesn't translate to much PT.
|3 days 4 hours ago||As someone who has been to||
As someone who has been to ND's camps many times, I agree that I would never go to ND. It's completely boring and lame and awful. Nothing redeeming about the town or campus whatsoever. Yes, it's pretty. But 18 year olds care little about that. The academic difference between M and ND Is negligible and many UM programs are better. I would never push ND over UM even if the price was the same.
Northwestern is a different story. That comes down to how much money they family has and what the student really prefers.

Wasn't that Washington St, not Oregon State? Maybe I'm remembering wrong.
EDIT: Nevermind, I was remembering it wrong.
|6 days 4 hours ago||If after a couple years, it's||
If after a couple years, it's clear this kid isn't going to be the starting QB, we need to move him to TE a la Jay Reimersma. Talk about a huge, athletic dude.

Quite small buyout.

Pointless destruction is not common among Michigan fraternities.
|1 week 1 day ago||OccaM is right. No one is||
OccaM is right. No one is defending what these guys did. The point is, most houses would never do this shit, and many of the houses do a lot more good than bad.
We had guys in our house that were dick heads. We also had guys that read to elementary schoolers, raised money for various charities, went on mission trips and like half our house did Dance Marathon every year. I know the bad stuff makes the news, but that's not how the Greek System should be viewed.
|1 week 1 day ago||It's also likely that the||
It's also likely that the "good apples" just weren't around when this was going on. When my fraternity went on trips, it's not like every single thing is done as a group. Hell, 80% of the house might have been skiing or sleeping when this happened.
|1 week 1 day ago||Normal damage doesn't mean it||
Normal damage doesn't mean it happens all the time. He means it's the type of damage that happens sometimes, the customer gets the bill, pays it, and moves on. The fraternity may have even budgeted for that.
Point is, if you bring 100 college guys anywhere for a weekend, do a thousand (or even a few thousand) worth of damage and pay it, that's not news-worthy.
|1 week 1 day ago||Exactly. When one person does||
Exactly. When one person does a grand of damage, it's a lot. When a grand of damage is done by 100 guys, which is somewhere between 25 and 50 hotel rooms, that's not exactly excessive.
|1 week 1 day ago||Yeah - and it's a long||
Yeah - and it's a long process. I'm a class of '06 SigEp and we did a ton to get back to prominence and although we did a lot over the 4 years I was there, it took a lot more than that.
|1 week 1 day ago||Yes. They were booted around||
Yes. They were booted around 2003 for hazing stuff. I'm a SigEp and I was in college at that time and we lived in the Sigma Chi house from 2004-2010 or so when we were between permanent housing.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||At a place as nice as that,||
At a place as nice as that, $400 for four people isn't bad without wine. Entrees are 60 bucks or so, add an appetizer or soup and a side of dessert at 15 per and you're looking at 100 per person without getting alcohol or going nuts with food.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||John Kelly also has a||
John Kelly also has a Tennessee offer - a place he's likely to end up. He has enough good options that I'd be happy taking him.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Newsome is a tackle all the||
Newsome is a tackle all the way, and Runyan could likely play either. I think Moorman falls into that same category as Runyan.
Is our current depth skewed toward guards? Our starting tackles this past fall were a frosh and a soph, with their backups being Magnuson and Dawson, two more sophomores. JBB and LTT were behind them.

We should start getting used to that.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||I initially read that tweet||
I initially read that tweet as "I've confirmed Shannon Turley is a man" which answered a question I had.

Thanks. I was almost there.

I have not yet heard mention of this at all.

And I think Brian Thompson (FB/TE) went to Nouvel.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||And his HS teammate - running||
And his HS teammate - running back last name Jackson, first name I can't remember. Maybe also started with a J?

I think we're splitting hairs here.
|4 weeks 5 hours ago||I think Joe Bolden and||
I think Joe Bolden and Ojemudia would fill that roll.
|4 weeks 5 hours ago||Ross and Morgan would be the||
Ross and Morgan would be the ILBs with Bolden and Ojemudia as the OLBs. Gedeon would be our next ILB off the bench and I bet McCray or possibly Lawrence Marshall would be next at OLB.
