  • 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.

With that point in mind, Buckeye3M, I think the rise of social media and what some would deride as the "wussification" of America signaled the end of Bobby Knight's approach and has spearheaded Harbaugh's, with its seeming attention on the banality of it all that Knight would have refused to acknowledge. Two ships passing in the night.

I agree. The recruiting tidbits that I've read have basically suggested that Moses is struggling in camps with playing the position; that he's an out-of-this-world athlete, but is having trouble with the schematic end of things. I think he'll be a good, but maybe not great college football player.

Thanks, AlltimeTE. Where are you seeing this? I'm getting the impression that Holmes and Lamont Wade are slipping away a bit for various reasons.

I visit if Mgoblog from time to time, especially after they get a commitment (they are pretty exhaustive in breaking down the recruits measurable and rankings) and I actually get the opposite reaction if you read between the lines. There are quite a few posters there who are openly asking why they're settling for so many 3-stars when we're zeroing in on five-stars. I guess what I'm saying is there is some healthy skepticism there along with the "Harbaugh will coach them up" sentiments.

Any thoughts on the news that Richard LeCounte will visit? News of five-star visits are often just good for clickbait, but LeCounte's history with us in recruiting and his relationship with Raekwon obviously sets us a bit apart. Any heat here or just a recruit keeping his name in the news?

EDIT: just saw Buckeye06's post. A step slow on this Sunday it seems.

I don't see how gambling can be worse than gaining a physical advantage by using steroids and thus changing the outcome of games. The pomposity of baseball and all of its wonky talking heads never ceases to amaze me.

They actually have us at #1, Wesley, and that's without Davis, I believe (it seriously boggles the mind how they can't have someone there to update the rankings). With ESPN, it's more interesting to put their list up against 247's and Rivals. One of these things is not like the other, as the song goes. Guys who seem to specifically drop in ESPN"s rankings are guys like Brendon White, who've been committed for a while. Top 300 still, but probably underrated.

Everybody laughed at Kiffin at the time and many of the same people are clicking on links to stories of offers to 8th graders now. If anything, it's gaining in popularity. Just way too soon.

Good points all around. Who knows what would have become of Rose were it not for the almost cursed propensity towards injuries, but the last two years were painful to watch and listen to (he could be the most ineffectual leader I've every seen). If it's Hoiberg's team, I would expect more changes are coming as the one from last year didn't seem to want to compete every night.

I think he's too small for a traditional LB role. I'd move him around the DB positions and definitely put him in nickel situations as a monster back.
