In keeping consistent with every other thread involving Oliver Martin, I'll just go ahead and start the inevitable:

He didn't say Urban specifically. He threw a blanket statement about how some coaches will lie to you so it's good to have family (the reason he chose UCLA- close to home) close. Kind of looks like a shot at Urban given their presumed lead before the week and being far from home, but he didn't mention any specifics about who or what he was talking about.

|11/28/2016 - 3:14am||Looking at their schedules, I||
Looking at their schedules, I just don't see how PSU would jump OSU. I disagree that their resumes are equal. PSU was 3-2 on the road, with their best road victory at Indiana. The only team of note they beat was OSU, and the committee will remember that they won on a blocked kick. Yes, they'll have beaten Wisconsin in this scenario, but OSU will have wins against Wisconsin, Michigan, Nebraska, and Oklahoma. The Wisconsin and Oklahoma games were on the road. The Michigan game will also hold a ton of weight as it was a late season 2v3 matchup.
I still feel confident in saying they are a lock, and I think in past scenarios the teams like Baylor or TCU that got pushed out didn't have as convincing of a resume. Maybe I'm wrong (I'm too lazy to research it right now); the committee does do some bizarre things. But we can agree to disagree, I'm good with that.
|11/28/2016 - 2:55am||I have no idea, badman. It's||
I have no idea, badman. It's already been established that three of the refs should not have been there for different reasons. Whether or not Delany specifically assigned them or told them to call one way or another I have no idea. He very well could have. Or those refs could just have no integrity and decided to give every advantage to OSU. Who knows.
My reply was saying that I didn't say Delany was to blame. I'm not trying to find people to blame like ColelsCorky interpreted from my post. All I was saying is that Delany did have a rooting interest for OSU; whether or not he took measures to help that result is unknown. It's possible he did, but I personally don't know if he did or did not.
|11/28/2016 - 12:02am||Actually that's not what I'm||
Actually that's not what I'm saying. I didn't blame Delany, I just answered your question as to why he would care. I have no proof or evidence that he schemed a plot for OSU to win, but I do feel pretty confident that he liked the result.
|11/27/2016 - 4:47pm||I think he cares a lot||
I think he cares a lot because his chances of having two B1G teams in the CFP just skyrocketed. OSU is already at #2 and just beat #3 and they don't have to play an extra B1G championship game (and possibly lose). If Michigan won we would be in the conference championship with a chance of losing, giving basically only 1 team in the CFP regardless of result.
Now he gets the luxury of having one lock(OSU) and either PSU or WI (who are both pretty close to the 4 spot already) getting that 4th spot, and nothing crazy really has to happen in order for that to be the case. I think that would give him a very big reason to care if OSU beat Michigan.

Yeah, most questions are reasonable but there are some odd ones. #26, to me, is strange. Seems weird to ask such an in-depth question about transferring out. Why are they already thinking about that at this point in time (I think it's kinda funny because i'm guessing this is a question geared toward Michigan as we're further away than the main contenders)? The GPA one, as you mentioned, is another head-scratcher.
Also, there are questions that can be answered with a little bit of research and most (I assume- I've never been on a football visit) will be answered during the visit. Seems a little overkill for me but I'm not his mom and ultimately I think Michigan will do better with this than the other schools.

Thanks for the write up and film, Adam. I love it when the same family members end up playing for us. I don't really know why, but I seem to have an extra rooting interest for them to succeed.
|09/26/2016 - 1:59pm||The main reason I liked the||
The main reason I liked the timeout with 17 seconds left in the first half was that it prevents PSU from calling a hail mary. At that point in time PSU wasn't going to give Peppers a return, but they could get lucky by calling a timeout with 3 seconds left and bombing it down the field.
Now, I'm not saying that PSU has the competence to pull that off without getting sacked/intercepted/incomplete, but it is nice to see some awareness in our coaching. If they were dumb enough to kick and allow a return by Peppers then that's a cherry on top, but it wasn't the main reason I thought it was a smart move. In a tighter ballgame against stiffer competition that denial of a hail mary attempt could pay dividends.

But if you keep posting the same question over and over (which makes it look like you're mocking the answer you are trying to get out of us) then it starts looking like trolling behavior, which will likely in turn get you banned or create the mob-mentality that you're referencing.
I guess I'm not sure why you don't think that finding an under-recruited/lightly-recruited kid at a camp can help win a championship. Surely FSU (I'm assuming that's your team) had some kids that contributed to their national championships that weren't highly touted coming out of high school. Every year there's many examples of this happening, and this is part of the reason of holding these satellite camps: to identify players that can contribute to your team.
So to answer your original question: yes, it is possible that some of these kids that get offered at these camps can be contributors to a possible Michigan national championship in 5 years, if it were to happen.

They do get a lot of Canadians like superstringer said, but they also get a good chunk of talent from MN. Their best player is from a Twin Cities suburb. College hockey is weird and the same question can be asked about many schools. There are way too many to list lol.
Their arena is also pretty amazing. I was shocked when I first saw it.

|02/04/2016 - 7:59pm||While I can appreciate this||
While I can appreciate this being personal given your ties to FSU (I believe you were a corner or defensive back there), you do realize that the people reinforcing the incentive to run with this lie (by settling) is FSU, right? They have the ability and right to stand up for themselves and a former player even if it's a losing situation. They have the financial means to cover it.
FWIW, I agree with the main point you are trying to make about the injustice of it all. I just think settling is somewhat an admission of guilt, especially in this instance when the president starts the "we don't want to lose more money" cry.
|02/02/2016 - 9:22pm||In regards to the backend||
In regards to the backend fetch failing tomorrow, would it be helpful for the server if we did pre-commitment posts like fomo did with Simmons (sorry EGJ, this is more of a question for LSA or other mods- your post just made me think of it)? I feel like it may help when 20 people try to "break" the news of Gary and other player's commitments. Would that help mitigate some server issues because there wouldn't be as many posts to comment on or delete? Maybe it wouldn't but I thought I'd throw it out there just in case.

Very true, there are probably some unrealistic expectations from some people here. But I think a good chunk of the readers here would be as happy as you and I about repeating Clowney's FR year. Maybe I'm wrong, but there does seem to be some realistic football minds on here.
Before creating my last post I went back and looked at his FR stats as you did and I got so excited! He had 5 FF that year, a stat that I think we have sorely lacked in the last couple of years. Perhaps that's a product of not having many great edge rushers that can surprise a QB and knock the ball out, but I think Gary could potentially be our best edge rusher if we plug him in at DE on passing downs. It would be interesting to see (and hopefully we will get to see come next fall) how we utilize him given the strength of our current DL.
|01/08/2016 - 3:17pm||You're not wrong, but there||
You're not wrong, but there is also a big difference between being an 18 year old DL and an 18 year old OL. History has shown that it is easier to step in and play right away as a DL and make an impact. I agree with Freddie that he may not start right away, but you certainly can't rule it out down the road. I also agree that this is a very, very good thing!
One person that has come up in his rating comparisons is Jadeveon Clowney and there was no way SC was keeping him off the field in his freshman year. Hopefully we can say the same about Gary.

Yeah it cut into the game for 5 seconds after the first play in the 2nd quarter and now nothing. Pretty poor performance by btn.

Landing him, in my expert opinion, would be pretty nice.
Did I miss a joke somewhere, or do you really think that highly of yourself to claim you are an expert just because you regurgitate information that others have posted from the internet (yes, that includes your "scouting")? I guess that's the beauty of the internet: anyone with a keyboard can be a self-proclaimed "expert" on any topic.
|09/10/2015 - 5:15pm||Thanks SC||
I like how you finished the article by saying that it takes time and reps to be on the same page with route adjustments, but they also need to be cleaned up if you want to run an effective offense. No doubt that these will be worked on in practice.
This is why I come to Mgoblog: I think I have a completely reasonable explanation as to why something happened and get totally debunked by an expert :)
|09/10/2015 - 4:44pm||The 2nd pick||
To me it looked like the 2nd pick was a smash concept, where the outside receiver runs a short hitch and the inside receiver runs a corner route. If that's the case, then Perry ran another poor route as he definitely rounds off his route to look like more of a deep out (which is what it is labeled above by Brian). Perhaps if he ran a corner route it would have been completed. If so, it looks like it would have been a nice gain as it was the correct read for the route concept.
Now, the throw may have been poor even with a good corner route, but it at least may explain why the two were on such different pages. Difficult to say as it didn't pan out that way, but I'm going to side with the 5th year QB over the freshman WR as to where the ball and player should have been.
|09/05/2015 - 12:44am||Those QB sneaks||
Especially on the two QB sneaks. He was blown back 3 yards on each one! Granted, Utah's DTs are pretty strong, but everything I've ever read about Braden praised his strength and athleticism. Kind of surprised me to see that it happened on both of them.
|09/04/2015 - 10:25pm||Braden didn't have a good||
Braden didn't have a good game and was the weak spot in our line, imo. I think, come UFR time, our line will grade out better than a lot of people on this blog think- but Braden will be far and away the worst. Just my take after watching it again today.
|09/03/2015 - 10:18pm||This was my thought as well.||
This was my thought as well. Looks like it was a smash route and Perry did more of a rounded out than a flag. I'm not sure if that was the case or it was a bad throw but, this is why playing freshman after they've only had one month of practice is not always a great idea.
|08/28/2015 - 3:31pm||I had the same thought...||
But I can't let go the idea of him being a Marvin Harrison-type route running WR. High expectations, I know, but that vision has stuck with me since he was being recruited.
|08/28/2015 - 1:45pm||Defense||
Defense. This could be a special unit when combined with a somewhat competent offense.
