Well most coaches need good coordinators, the problem is Les hires bad ones way too much. Anyone could have told you Cam Cameron wasnt gonna work out well.

11/16/2018 - 5:47pm 100% agreed. If he finds the…

100% agreed. If he finds the next Lincoln Riley or Chip Kelly that can come in and put together a capable offense, then he could pull this off. But his last 3 offensive coordinators were Gary Crowton, who is currently the OC at a high school, Cam Cameron who is unemployed, and Greg Studrawa who is responsible for the Ohio State offensive line. Not exactly quality or inspiring hires. 

11/16/2018 - 5:41pm Miles failed at LSU because…

Miles failed at LSU because he couldn't develop a quarterback and schematically fell behind his peers. He recruited well at LSU, but recruiting at Kansas is so much more about identifying talent than it is actually recruiting, because Les aint beating out Texas, Oklahoma, Texas A&M, or Arkansas for a kid in the Great Plains. He may win a recruiting battle or two against Oklahoma State, Texas Tech, Baylor, TCU or K State, but probably not consistently enough to build a consistent winner. He has to be able to find diamonds in the rough and adapt his scheme towards the lack of talent. I don't think a 65 year old Les Miles is capable of pulling it off. Personally, I think it'll fail miserably because Les just did not catch up to modern football. Maybe he'll adjust and I'll be wrong as hell.

11/16/2018 - 4:44pm Maybe. He's so raw though…

Maybe. He's so raw though. He's fast and athletic, but he's very thin, and he has a bit of an unnatural throwing motion. Cannon for an arm, tons of potential. But he's gonna need a lot of seasoning. I like him, but there's a lot to be developed there. He actually reminds me a ton of N'Kosi Perry, the Miami Quarterback coming out of high school. Speed, athleticism, awkward throwing motions/angles, but potential through the ass. And I see a bit of Zach Gentry in him, but he was a bit heavier and less mobile coming out of high school. 

 

EDIT: Just realized I misspelled Dwan*, so if you were inferring he'll make history by being a girl named Dawn, then it completely sailed over my head and I definitely didn't watch more film on him.

11/16/2018 - 2:22pm They have a ton of talent,…

They have a ton of talent, and I think a new coordinator and better LB Coach, they could turn it around quick. But I'm excited to see what the tire fire turns into. 

11/16/2018 - 1:40pm Whoof. That'll sting. If…

Whoof. That'll sting. If Haskins leaves, it'll be Tate Martell, Matthew Baldwin, and Dawn Mathis. Martell is extremely talented and fits the Urban Meyer role very well, but he's also listed at 5'11. Baldwin is a guy they flipped late from Colorado State and has been dealing with a knee injury all year, and Mathis will be a true freshman. That's a very thin and unexperienced Quarterback room. Combine that with them losing 3 WR, 3 Starting OL, and probably Michael Jordan, KJ Hill, and Mike Weber to the draft, and they could be in a very tough spot next year. Thoughts and prayers to them....

11/16/2018 - 1:26pm There's a very strong and…

There's a very strong and mature presence in Keegan's area. The OL Coach that Keegan works very closely in his area with respects Ed Warinner a lot, and has worked with and helped develop Bryan Bulaga, a current starter for Notre Dame's OL, a current starter for Purdue's OL, and a bunch of power 5 prospects at Northwestern, Iowa, Arkansas, Wisconsin, Ole Miss, Vanderbilt and Michigan State. He's also helped develop a bunch of players that end up at NIU, the Service academies, and high level FCS schools. I'm very biased, but players in Keegan's area are usually more mature about the recruiting process because of the level of competition and coaching. 

11/16/2018 - 1:07pm Just a quick update for…

Just a quick update for those who were concerned about Keegan visiting Clemson and Georgia, he's just taking his visits to feel out the process. For the last few months, it has always been either Michigan or Penn State for Keegan. Ohio State was out of it awhile ago. If I was a betting man, I would say that there is a 95% chance he ends up in the class, with the only ambiguity being if for some reason Moore or Warinner leave before he signs (Highly unlikely)

11/16/2018 - 12:57pm Hmmm I'm looking through the…

Hmmm I'm looking through the archives, and actually I can't find many much admired men that have hired/been allied with coaches/players worse than Briles. I see Major Applewhite, Lane Kiffin, Urban Meyer, Joe Paterno, and Mark Dantonio. 

11/15/2018 - 10:14pm Yea it's loose, but they're…

Yea it's loose, but they're 5-5 after being 3-9 last year. They beat Auburn and Kentucky, which is a step in the right direction. I'd bet they split Mizzou and Vandy at the very least to get bowl eligibility. And they have a much easier schedule next year. No starter on their offense is a senior, and only two backups are, so they're going to return a ton. They should bring back 6 defensive starters, and there's a really good chance they sign 3 top 15 commits and put together a top 7 or 8 class. Pruitt has it trending upwards.

11/15/2018 - 10:03pm Kinda but not really. I…

Kinda but not really. I would say 85-90% of recruiting is going to be wrapped up by the early signing day. 

11/15/2018 - 9:53pm Can you blame him? A…

Can you blame him? A Tennessee kid seeing his in state program start to gain some momentum and the opportunity to be the #1 guy? Hard to pass up honestly.

11/15/2018 - 9:49pm They're projected to flip a…

They're projected to flip a 5* from Georgia that was committed to Auburn. That screams $EC

11/15/2018 - 9:35pm Agreed. Not to mention, I…

Agreed. Not to mention, I think any commit that hasn't been mentioned in the recruiting roundups as of recent and hasn't made it up to campus yet, could be looking around. There are a couple in mind that I believe have not visited yet this season.

Not to mention, we were all pretty surprised that Singleton and Hudson transferred, so there are a couple of surprises that will inevitably pop up. And with the amount of talent being taken at OL and DL, it wouldn't surprise me if we see some attrition there, especially considering the flyers we took that have incredibly high ceilings, but maybe aren't progressing. Probably a safety as well, probably a punter. If Gentry comes back, I would guess we see a tight end leave. 

11/15/2018 - 7:41pm Because crazy bullshit hasn…

Because crazy bullshit hasn't happened in CFB this year. So were due. It's going to happen to Michigan, Notre Dame, or Clemson in the next two weeks I guarantee it. We just hope the game of Russian Roulette ends before its our turn. 

11/15/2018 - 6:40pm Agreed. I've seen Herbert…

Agreed. I've seen Herbert may stay another year too. And next year's draft would include Tua, Jake Fromm, Sam Ehlinger, Shea if he stays, Haskins if he stays, Ian Book, Nate Stanley, potentially Jacob Eason, and whoever else ends up breaking out. This year will be watered down.

11/15/2018 - 6:02pm Interesting. I think he'd be…

Interesting. I think he'd be a very interesting receiver prospect, but I see why they like him as a safety. With his speed, size and physicality, it wouldn't shock me if he was a guy they could move to linebacker if need be. He's got subtle and quick changes of direction, so I don't necessarily think it's a negative. 

11/15/2018 - 5:28pm That's much better than a…

That's much better than a guy having just Kansas and Kansas State offers with low P5 offers. I guarantee you they love him and waited awhile on offering to avoid people taking notice. He's a legit 6'3, has incredibly fluidity in his movements, and is strong as hell. I could be wrong, but I would guess he's being recruited as a receiver.

 

Nevermind, I soured on the kid. Poor character and decision making as displayed by the first sentence of his Basketball recruiting profile being: "My goal is to attend Michigan State.". Do not want. /s

11/15/2018 - 2:49pm Also drafted Darius Morris a…

Also drafted Darius Morris a few years ago.

11/15/2018 - 2:47pm I agree. I think something…

I agree. I think something we were all guilty of, myself included, is forgetting just how raw Poole is at times. Has potential through the roof, but only averaged 12 mpg last year, and only 52 total minutes in the NCAA tourney, which is also the equivalent to the amount of time I've spent watching his shot against Houston on replay since last week. He's averaging 28 mpg so far which is a major jump in usage. It'll take some time for him to develop a complete flow of the game with a high usage and how to pick and choose his spots. It'll be interesting to see him play against UNC, since they gave him fits last year. 

11/15/2018 - 1:33am His effort is fine. Wouldn’t…

His effort is fine. Wouldn’t say it’s better or worse than other mid level power five prospects. If he can lose 30 pounds and significantly improve his lower body strength, then we’re talking. Gonna need to get some Z in the knee and develop a ton of explosiveness 

11/14/2018 - 5:54pm He does the things you would…

He does the things you would expect a massive D1 prospect to do. But he has little to no bend in his stance, and doesn't have a ton of lower body explosiveness. All of his pancakes are a result of his size, and Indiana has some nice talent, but it's still not a great state for overall talent in terms of athletic big men. He doesn't finish blocks on the line of scrimmage, and has very heavy feet and isn't able to stay on blocks as long because of it. He has strong hands, but doesn't have a great punch, and his lateral movement isn't great. He's got some natural athleticism to him, but it would take a lot of work to turn him into a high caliber OT. Sure Michigan could turn him into a really good player, but they can turn better players into even better players. I'm not saying the kid stinks or anything, there's a difference between evaluating his film and shitting on him. He just doesn't have any traits that pop out, outside of immense size

11/14/2018 - 12:30pm Yea, I like him a decent…

Yea, I like him a decent amount. He moves well for someone 6'8 and 360, but I wouldn't say it's a plus for him, he's got heavy feet and his film is pretty good, but competition caveats apply. Pancakes a lot of dudes 100-150 pounds lighter than him, has a USC offer, but Tim Drevno caveat. I think he has a ton of potential, but I think he's a flyer of someone they'll take in February if worst case scenarios happen. 

11/13/2018 - 8:41pm Best ever seems pretty lofty…

Best ever seems pretty lofty. 2017 was a great class, even though its seen a decent amount of attrition. 2013 was a great class even though Brady Hoke squandered all the offensive talent, Dymonte Thomas, Taco Charlton, Jourdan Lewis, Jake Butt, Mo Hurst, Delano Hill, Ben Gedeon, Channing Stribling, Mike McCray and Khalid Hill all ended up in the NFL at some point or another. It's just a shame that class had 6 players in the top 115, and Dymonte Thomas was the only one who you could say was an above average player for Michigan. Shane Morris, Chris Fox, David Dawson, Patrick Kugler and Derrick Green were not.

11/13/2018 - 12:30pm Makes sense! Thanks for the…

Makes sense! Thanks for the heads up! 

11/13/2018 - 12:29pm Yea which makes me think it…

Yea which makes me think it’s an error. I can see 247 dropping him because whatever, but he’s not even ranked in the top 200 prospects in his state, which I’m not buying in the least. Probably just an algorithm error when dealing with a big database. 

11/13/2018 - 12:29pm Yea which makes me think it…

Yea which makes me think it’s an error. I can see 247 dropping him because whatever, but he’s not even ranked in the top 200 prospects in his state, which I’m not buying in the least. Probably just an algorithm error when dealing with a big database. 

11/13/2018 - 12:24pm No I did not. The #36…

No I did not. The #36 prospect on the Updated top 247 is not Hinton, and on the composite he has a N/A next to him. I’m assuming an error at this point, but he is not on the updated list. 

11/13/2018 - 12:16pm Yea it’s probably an error…

Yea it’s probably an error at this point. He just isn’t on the updated list. I found it interesting but he was 36th before the update so at this point idk

11/13/2018 - 12:14pm Hinton isn’t even in the top…

Hinton isn’t even in the top 200 prospects in Georgia. Which I find hard to believe. I’m assuming it’s an error at this point until told otherwise. 

11/13/2018 - 12:11pm I noticed that as well. It…

I noticed that as well. It could very possibly be an error, because even players ranked outside the top 247 have a ranking, where as Hintons is N/A.

trente Jones also makes a big jump fwiw

im on mobile and accidentally posted the composite. 247 updated their own personal rankings which still changes the composite, but isn’t what I was referencing. Sorry for the confusion 

11/05/2018 - 12:49pm Idk where people get the…

Idk where people get the impression that Peters is bad and unplayable. Sure, he's not as good as Shea or DMac, but he's not unplayable. He completed 53% of his passes last year and looked very average with very young receivers and a bad OL. Throw in another year of development and I think he'll be better.

11/05/2018 - 12:18pm Karlaftis is not a silent…

Karlaftis is not a silent commit. Karlaftis is only flipping if Brohm leaves. That being said, Michigan is certainly trying. 

11/04/2018 - 8:38pm Yea but you're also giving…

Yea but you're also giving the greatest coach in college football history 4 weeks to prepare. So not always ideal.

11/04/2018 - 8:25pm Are you serious? The route…

Are you serious? The route tree is incredibly different. The spacing and the footwork is different. It's like the different between a guard and tackle. 

11/02/2018 - 5:15pm Rather have Joe Milton in…

Rather have Joe Milton in there. Gentry can be 1 of the 3 tight ends, and he can just run really really really far and Milton can throw it really really really far or run it really really really far.

11/01/2018 - 4:36pm This is wrong. Because a…

This is wrong. Because a committee will absolutely leave out Michigan if it comes down to 12-1 LSU with a win over Alabama or a 12-1 Georgia SEC Champion that avenged its only loss to LSU, 11-1 Alabama with their only loss being on the road to LSU, 13-0 Clemson, and 12-0 Notre Dame. That being said, the odds of that happening are incredibly slim. I would bet both Clemson and Notre Dame pick up a loss. 

11/01/2018 - 11:17am Mid 20's, new Girlfriend…

Mid 20's, new Girlfriend enjoys watching football with me, but I think it's because she enjoys spending time with me. Which I'm fine with. Her good friend is a Michigan Alum, and someone I enjoy watching games with, so it ends up working out. That being said, I accidentally sent her a couple of my "I want to die" snapchats during the Notre Dame game and it didn't scare her off.

10/30/2018 - 7:01pm Was not expecting Runyan to…

Was not expecting Runyan to be good. Maybe average. And after the Notre Dame game I was incredibly pessimistic. But Runyan is flat out good.

10/30/2018 - 6:51pm He looks great! And the 2018…

He looks great! And the 2018 draft has been fantastic so far! And Snacks was great on Sunday, and Jarrad Davis has been decent, but he's still improving. AShawn has been terrific this year! There are a lot of things to like about the direction the Lions are going, and the bottom of the roster is better than most rosters, which means the depth is there. I truly believe the Lions are 1 or 2 real, impact players on defense away from contending in the NFC. If they could sign an edge rusher and drafted Devin White or Josh Allen, they could be in great shape.

10/30/2018 - 4:52pm 1. They have Marvin Jones…

1. They have Marvin Jones and Kenny Golladay, both of whom have been very good this year. 

2. He'll be 31 by the time next season starts, considering he'll probably be able to get anywhere from 8-10 million per year, that seems like way too much to pay what will probably be the 3rd best receiver on the Lions next year.

3. Bob Quinn's draft record: Dashawn Hand, Frank Ragnow, and Kerryon Johnson have all looked excellent this year. No GM has a perfect record, and the Teez Tabor pick was an abomination, but Quinn has been very good at drafting especially in the later rounds. 

4. They lost by 28 to the Jets, and lost to the Cowboys, 49ers, and Seahawks. They weren't winning the division. This isnt a very good football team, and its definitely not a team thats good enough to justify forgoing valuable future assets for a pipe dream of a 30 year old wide receiver making a genuine difference over the last 8 games before moving on to another team. 

10/30/2018 - 4:40pm Personally I like your site…

Personally I like your site and think it gives pretty good insight and is incredibly well done for what I assume is a side hustle for you. Like the amount of time and energy you spend on it is impressive, especially if its not your full time job.

10/29/2018 - 6:49pm Trevor Keegan’s football…

Trevor Keegan’s football game was on a Saturday. A lot of bigger schools in the Chicagoland area will play on Saturday instead of Friday night. It was also a mid afternoon kickoff. Keegan looked very good in a 49-0 win, but will have a very tough matchup against 8-2 Niles Notre Dame, which has been a perennial contender in one of the Midwest’s best football conferences. 

10/29/2018 - 6:44pm Ohio State is out of it for…

Ohio State is out of it for Keegan. It’s basically down to Michigan and Penn State with Michigan having a solid lead. If we’re 10-1 going into the game, it’ll basically seal it. 

10/27/2018 - 12:39pm No chance they go 12-0 with…

No chance they go 12-0 with that schedule. They also have Iowa at home, a body blow game against Army, and at Maryland and Indiana. I think people underestimate how hard it is to go undefeated. I'd almost guarantee a game gets dropped somewhere. There's a reason there's never been a 15-0 National Champion in the playoff era. It's really hard to do and this Michigan team still won't be anywhere near as talented as the last few Alabama teams, 2016 Ohio State, 2014 Florida State, or 2017 Clemson. And they all lost games.

10/27/2018 - 12:36pm I'd love him to stay, but…

I'd love him to stay, but realistically what would help his learning curve more? Another year of playing college football, or a year of having unlimited reps and time to work on his craft in a system that is trying to develop him for the NFL. 

10/27/2018 - 10:08am Yea but the 4* Linebacker…

Yea but the 4* Linebacker received an Ohio State offer a week before our offer so that's probably where he's going.

10/25/2018 - 12:18pm You say that as if we're…

You say that as if we're undefeated. We lost to Notre Dame. Good teams can lose a game and make the playoffs, not sure what the outrage is here.

10/24/2018 - 11:55am It's not gonna impact Grant…

It's not gonna impact Grant Perry and Oliver Martin. Those dudes are slot specialists. Ronnie Bell probably won't see many more critical snaps, but its a testament to his ability that he's seen what he has as a true freshman without a ton of polish. He's going to be a stud.
