  • SPORTS MOMENT: Sad to say, 8th grade year. Last minute red zone stand versus hated rival and I make a tackle at the three-yard line to save the game. Long gap... then I ran a marathon when I was 30. Not exactly Highlight Express.

BamaMike:

Who starts for Bama at QB? it looks like a Coker-Cornwell battle.

Comment 17 May 2015

I agree. I'm curious, though, to see how this "drop" impacts him as a teen. From what I've heard he's a very hard worker. I feel sorry for the weights he's about to hit even harder.

Comment 17 May 2015

Keep in mind, too, that once guys are committed, they're less beneficial to recruiting sites as the story lines of "Where will they end up?" and "Are they still looking?" are no longer in play (the headlines that get hits). I'm not so cynical to think that an uneven performance by a player might not impact his rating, but it's pretty consistent that they're no longer hot shit once they're committed.

EDIT: or, basically, what Teddy said above me. Slow-moving this Sunday.

Without trying to incite more hostile posts, but rather to elicit some good conversation, it seems clear where our head is at recruiting-wise (cherry-pick the state and cast a wide net for top talent nationally) as well as MSU (strong regional presence that identifies as a very strong #2 option for Midwest talent). How are we defining UM's recruiting approach, though?

Isiah Thomas. Am proud to say I've hated him in every one of his incarnations (player, coach, GM, committed d-bag).

Comment 15 May 2015

This is the catch of committing early. Your headline, "Buckeyes visit commit Walker" just isn't as sexy as "Craig-Myers re-opens his recruitiment" and people stop paying such close attention. It's one of the reasons, IMO, you'll see kids long-committed to schools take fall trips for a little attention. And, no, I don't think it's diva-esque so much as it's being a teenager.

Total speculation, I know, but I think the play we're going to see from Bell will be All-American play. I think he makes our D dominant this year.

Comment 12 May 2015

"He shows that he loves you, he’ll do everything for you," Ohio State defensive tackle Adolphus Washington said last season. "How can you not just go out there and play hard for a guy like that?"

LJ has been with us a little over a year. Some coaches are still getting buy-in. Some get quotes like this.

Comment 10 May 2015

To be fair, Mgoblog's Ace Anbender wrote a pretty scathing piece on the supposed "due dilligence" that the Seahawks did and how, in the end, it's really bad for everybody involved. It was a pretty ballsy piece, IMO, one that Anbender took a ton of shit for, and one that many, many homer websites would have steered clear of.

Comment 10 May 2015

No, I think the coaches do as well. If Mitchell is itching to commit, though, and Corley resigned to take his time, it would be tough to turn Mitchell away unless Corley was some sort of silent verbal (which it sounds like he is most definitely not).

Comment 09 May 2015

If anyone has been following Rivals' analysis of the draft and the star system, you'll find plenty to be optimistic about Berry. First off, as we know, there are a ton of 3* guys who went high in the draft. Secondly, there were more than a few concessions in the analysis part of the article regarding players who couldn't be classified at a certain position, much like Berry.

Comment 08 May 2015

I know I'm in the minority, but I love Noah. When he's healthy, he's a double-double machine and, most importantly, doesn't need the ball to impact the game. Right now, he's a shell of himself. He just looks out of sorts and, truthfully, his game has stalled since Rose came back as Rose is not really a floor general, ala John Wall.

Noah's personality is an acquired taste, for sure. I'd probably hate him if I were not a Bulls fan.

He is watching the numbers, Woodshed. I agree with your earlier post; if he wants in, he's in.
