Looking forward to weekend  on the boat in sunny Knoxville.

06/01/2018 - 8:20am Garrett does an excellent job of

Garrett does an excellent job of getting inside information on recruiting.  While they are guesses, he had Michael Barrrett pegged several months before his committment.  

05/02/2018 - 3:58pm Cal Ripken Jr.

He was a  great player, but there  were several better players in his era.  The streak and the attention it got were the primary reasons.

02/23/2018 - 8:01am Compared to the other problems

Compared to the other problems Michigan State is facing this seems minor but probably the one thing that will cost  the  program the most. 

Izzo is thought to be a great coach but the end is just around the corner.   When you cheat to get the top recruits and John Belein still beats you?

02/16/2018 - 11:51am Happy Friday!!

Posbang me!!

02/09/2018 - 9:00am Rough week in the market

At least it's Friday!!

12/22/2017 - 8:20am Merry Christmas

Off to  work I go.  I'm going to let the whole department go home, while I stay and do nothing.

08/04/2017 - 12:37pm Their first 4 games

Their first 4 games are at home: Bowling Green, WMU, Notre Dame and Iowa.  If they lose 3 of those and get rolled by Michigan there will be firing conversations in East Landfill.

10/31/2016 - 2:22pm Jonathan Kongbo is gone too.

Jonathan Kongbo is gone too.  Everyone here at UT is freaking out.

05/20/2016 - 11:46am Then you would have to

root for them all year.  That would be difficult.

05/20/2016 - 10:19am Hoping the weather clears up

Hoping the weather clears up here in TN so we can get the boat out. 

04/28/2016 - 2:14pm Summer Swarm

Summer Swarm back on track?  Does anyone know yet if they are keeping the same schedule that was in place before the ban?

03/23/2016 - 9:27am This blog is an important

This blog is an important part of my days.  I hope they can work out the server issues.

02/22/2016 - 12:41pm The Gentry news

The Gentry news has been out there for awhile but Hill moving to fullback seems like a great move for him.  He becomes the presumed starter I would think.

02/19/2016 - 9:58am I don't see him

I don't see him in this thread so he might just have someting else to do........as unlikely as that seems.

02/19/2016 - 8:32am Hail!

Hail!

02/09/2016 - 12:20pm JB's recruiting has been

JB's recruiting has been consistently average with the exception of the Stauskas, McGary class.  It is always going to be hit or miss when you can't land the one and done types.  I know some Kentucky fans that are tired of that whole show too. 

02/03/2016 - 12:45pm This has been better than expected.

This has been better than expected.  Lou Holtz was great!

02/03/2016 - 12:43pm Looks like there will be

Looks like there will be a focus on OL next year.

02/03/2016 - 12:40pm So the Orange T-shirt

So the orange T-shirt thing was a hoax?

02/02/2016 - 2:38pm Probably should be nice

Probably should be nice to him at the event tomorrow.  That is a great story!

02/02/2016 - 1:51pm Harbaugh

Harbaugh will get it done!

02/02/2016 - 1:45pm We won't know until

We won't know until 3pm tomorrow if believe.

02/02/2016 - 1:41pm Harbaugh

Harbaugh

02/02/2016 - 1:40pm This is going to be fun!

This is going to be fun.  .

02/02/2016 - 10:30am And he does it all

And he doe it all while appearing genuine.

02/02/2016 - 10:11am It looked like he tried to

It looked like he tried to avoid the collision but he did leave his feet and elbowed him.

02/02/2016 - 9:55am Banking scholarships

Banking scholarships is exactly what they do not want to do.   They have taken 40ish commits to scale back to 30ish.  They are trying to utilize all 85.  They are adding PWO's to increase the number of players that have a chance to play.  This is all brilliant and calculated.

01/27/2016 - 11:24am Best part is

Best part is when the guy tries to shake Phelp's hand!!

01/25/2016 - 12:40pm Probably eliminates Rashad Weaver

Probably eliminates Rashad Weaver but they may take 4 DL types.  We lose most of the starters after next year so that is an area of major need.

01/15/2016 - 12:46pm I think Harbaugh can

I think Harbaugh can do that.  I would love to see the spring game become a big-time event like at some other schools. 

01/07/2016 - 2:09pm The Tennessee DC job is open

The Tennessee DC job is open as of yesterday.  That would be interesting with DeBord as the OC.

01/02/2016 - 9:22am After 2011

After 2011 but it is different this year because of all of the returning experienced players. 2017 will be challenging because 20ish contributors will be leaving.

12/31/2015 - 10:44am Little late but...

Little late but i'll go along for the ride.  It was a great day.

12/28/2015 - 10:34am I don't think he has

I don't think he has ever publically said when he is going to announce. 

12/28/2015 - 10:29am Posbang away

Posbang away.  Having a great coach is a terrific reason!!

12/17/2015 - 3:03pm I am enjoying these

I am enjoying these lunchtime commits.

09/28/2015 - 10:24am ??

08/11/2015 - 10:44am Mgoblog and TTB

Mgoblog and TTB are my favorites too.  I also like to  visit http://mgofish.com/ he does a good job with recruiting.  Another old favorite is http://www.mikedesimone.com/recruiting/recruiting.htm  his recruiting outcomes really gives good insight into roster management. 

06/17/2015 - 1:59pm Some of the commits

Some of the commits that we already have will move up in the rankings.  Even if the 2 stars move to 3 stars when they get evaluated.  This is going to be a very strong class.

06/17/2015 - 11:23am Infante

Infante may not even be on their MLB roster by the all-star game.  They are openly searching for his replacement.  Still good in the field but he has lost a step and is not hitting like he once did.

06/08/2015 - 12:08pm Are they looking at

Are they looking at him as a linebacker?  I agree he is small for a DE.

05/20/2015 - 4:43pm Dan Enos

Dan Enos is listed as CMU coach.  He isn't there anymore.  He took a OC job at Arkansas.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dan_Enos

05/06/2015 - 10:16am Buying a boat...

Buying a boat is almost always a bad investment moneywise.  If you like boating and you have disposable income it can be fun and relaxing.  I have a 32' SeaRay Sundancer and it sleeps 5 - 6 people.  Twin engines is better than one because you can steer with the engines and it allows you better control, since boats don't have brakes and you can hit things.  I did not have a boat when I lived in Michigan because the season was so short, but I live in Tennessee now and we use it from March to November and can keep it n the water all year long.  Hope this helps.   

02/24/2015 - 11:34am Beathard was the backup

Beathard was the backup that threatened to transfer if he didn't  get to play in the bowl game.  I believe he is Bobby Beathard's grandson.  http://qctimes.com/sports/football/college/big-10/iowa/rudock-beathard-to-play-in-hawks-bowl-game-against-tennessee/article_efd8fa54-8f95-11e4-b42a-b33025ac7764.html

02/24/2015 - 11:19am Looks like Gentry and Malzone

Looks like Gentry and Malzone could redshirt if they are not going to be needed.  This sets up the future really nicely.

02/05/2015 - 5:47pm They were looking

They were looking at a kicker from Weber State also.

02/05/2015 - 3:47pm Nobody has mentioned

Nobody has mentioned that Butch Jones and Mke DeBord worked together at CMU and DeBord retained Butch and promoted him to OC while at Central.  They have a good working relationship and Butch trusts him.  UT fans seem to also be confused by the hire, but Butch is earning their trust with the improving record and the top-level recruiting.

02/04/2015 - 10:53am Thanks for sharing that.

Thanks for sharing that.

02/04/2015 - 10:50am As of 10:50 on NSD........

As of 10:50 on NSD Sam has only been wrong in Weber.  Hope the rest of the day goes well.
