Not really what he said. He said he'd be a Buckeye for life, as in "someone born and raised in Ohio", not a OSU Buckeye.

Come on man, that's not what he said at all if you are referring to his twitter comment.
I can't embed since I'm at work, but Farrell said he's getting a NC St. feeling early in the week but that is NOT his pick just yet. Did not mention Roseboro being a lean nor that he actually felt that's where he'll pick.

Interesting. I wonder if his choice will boil down to what position he wants to play, instead of what school. UCLA saying "you're our next Anthony Barr" has to be pretty enticing for a recruit.

The mad scramble of crystal ball choices/flips to UM for Bilal started with Steve Wiltfong. He's generally "in the know" with a lot of Midwest kids, but he isn't always right. I bet the majority of the picks for UM for Bilal have to do with Wiltfong making his for UM. Here's to hoping Wiltfong's right!

So would this effect M's recruitment of him? Does he want to be a pass rushing OLB in college and thus make it less likely to choose M if they only want him at DE? Maybe nobody knows, but I'm curious if the recruiting sites are putting him at OLB on their own choice or is KLS saying this is what he wants to be in college?

I'm massively worried. It helps that Hoke is hyping him up a bit, but nonetheless, it's definitely a major concern that won't go away unless he does somewhat solid against ND.
On the positive side of things, it sure seems like true freshman Cam Robinson is going to be starting at LT for Bama...and they're Bama.

I like her writing for the most part and this in no way takes away from her writing style, but I find she writes for people that don't actually pay attention to college football. Or maybe I just pay way too much attention to college football.

Brandon didn't set up that home and home, Martin did. In fact, Brandon tried like hell to get it moved to a bigger venue (i.e. Giants stadium) but UConn didn't budge. I agree that with Mr. "Brand", he's going to want a large stadium with lots of people watching, so I imagine it will be 2 solid teams with solid tradition/history.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||UCLA has already been||
UCLA has already been announced in a home & home for 2022/2023. Va Tech is set for 2020/2021. Arkansas for 2018/2019. Oklahoma for 2025/2026.
I wonder if these new home and homes will be for that far out or will the athletic dept double up and Power 5 conference opponent home and homes.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Not UConn||
As long as it's not like when they announced there would be a monster opponent for the "new" Big House after they finished the club suites.... and then it was friggin UConn, I'm happy.

Most people have no idea what is considered a high BAC level, so if they say below the legal limit, then they know it was not much to drink.

I'm not sure what this means. Does it include the nickel spot? Or is it just the boundary and field corners and these 3 are the leaders for those 2 spots?

Isn't Kalis at the 2:19 mark? Or is that Kugler?

I thought Hurst was the most impressive in that video. High hopes for some Mike Martin DT penetration from him in his career.
Is it Aug 30th yet?
|3 weeks 18 hours ago||Am I the only one that thinks||
Am I the only one that thinks it's reflective material and won't look nearly as bad on game day/in person as it does in this pic?
Having said that, I like the standard home uniforms way way better.
|3 weeks 19 hours ago||I actually kind of agree with||
I actually kind of agree with this. I think the numbers and stripes on the sleeves are of the reflective material and you won't notice it all that much on actual game day. But in this picture, it looks horrific because of how obvious the material is.
It's definitely not better than the standard jerseys, but I don't think it will look anywhere near as bad on game day as it does here....at least I hope so.
|3 weeks 20 hours ago||Best Snyder quote||
In that Snyder article, there is this quote....and it's amazing. Given that weight rooms/locker rooms are basically outdated after 5 years and the arms race to update them to recruit the best talent is ever present, Snyder lays down the law....of course, he's at a school that probably has little hope of recruiting the top talent, so maybe this is self serving a bit.
"Everybody is building Taj Mahals," Snyder said, "and I think it sends the message -- and young people today I think are more susceptible to the downside of that message, and that it's not about education. We're saying it is, but it's really about the glitz and the glitter, and I think sometimes values get distorted that way. I hate to think a young guy would make a decision about where he's going to get an education based on what a building looks like."

I meant it more as who my friend sees as the brains behind the MSU D.

I think he played conservatively because the D lacked the ability to get to the QB on a consistent basis.

My MSU friend has zero worries about Narduzzi leaving, if that tells you anything.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Agree||
MM and RVB were absolute hosses that season. I believe both (I'm 99% sure MM did) said that the level of coaching they got once Hoke and staff came in was light years ahead of what they were getting before. Makes sense with Hoke, Montgomery and Mattison.
I'll give Rich Rod credit for being one hell of an innovative offensive mind, but man did the D absolutely suffer while he was here.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Given the Swenson commit,||
Given the Swenson commit, Bredeson and Yarbrough looking solidly possible, and under the radar Michael Jordan (who I would imagine will blow up given immediate offers from UM and OSU after seeing him in camp), I'd say M is sitting pretty well for the 2016 OL class at the moment. It does appear they are mostly going after OT's though. Maybe Bredeson is a OG since he's listed at 6'4".
Side question - is M strongly going after the 2 highly rated Ohio OL (Kraemer and Eichenberg)? I was reading that ND may lead for both.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Only Bama and USC have a||
Only Bama and USC have a better avg rating per recruit than UM right now on the 247 Composite....that's amazing given last season and all the negativity in the media/fanbase. Well done Brady and staff!
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Cass Tech Pipeline||
Let's not forget how key Weber is to keep that CT pipeline going. A ton of young talent (Onwenu, Hill, Peoples-Jones, etc) upcoming and this has to help with those kids.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Well, let's say you really||
Well, let's say you really like this other person and you know they really like you too, would you suggest not seeing each other and not talking to each other? Would you commit to making this person your significant other without talking to/seeing each other?
I think maybe just relaxing and taking the fact that Weber is visiting as often as he is as a really good sign.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Reasonable Expectations?||
Expectations for him seem to be sky high but what is reasonable here? 300 Yds for the season? 500? Manningham had 27 catches for 442 yds as a freshman. Funchess had 15 catches for 234 yds as a freshman. I don't think either of those guys came in as an early enrollee as Canteen did, but I have to think something like 400 yards for him seems reasonable.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||While I agree that it's more||
While I agree that it's more important, I would not say it's far more important. Depth is critical for a program (see UM OL since Hoke has been at UM) and while more 4-star recruits pan out than 3-stars, the majority still do not pan out as hoped. Thus, most of these kids are lottery tickets and the more you have, the better.
I think what the sites should calculate is a rolling 4-year average to see how teams are doing with the full 85 schollies. That way schools that take 25-30 kids in a class for 2 years in a row a couple years ago aren't held back by the fact they can only take 15 or so in the next 2 classes. This way, they could also take into account kids that don't qualify or transfer early or leave for whatever reason early.
