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.
Are you thinking of Kareem Felder, who did not enroll?
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.
He's taken about a million trips there already. Pretty savvy choices, actually.
That's what happens when I don't get my daily Birm early enough.
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.
Ferentz's yard only looks good about once every four years.
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.
I have a hard time seeing both Browning and Hines in the same class (along with Simmons), though Lindsey's status may change that.
The fact that he's committed already is huge. I think Haskins would have been that same guy, though his flip came much, much later.
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.
Not a true center there, really, though Boogie does play with his back to the basket.
That's not traffic. Trust me.
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.
Agreed. Sounds like a god-dammed sheriff!
Florida State and Oregon overrated and Clemson, as high as they are, underrated. I think Dabo has a monster on his hands there.
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.
Could it be that our limited numbers have actually focused, and improved, our recruiting? Instead of having so many Plan B's, for instance, have we simply zeroed in on and succeeded in establishing relationships with so many Plan A's. I just don't see as many "possibilities" as in years' past and instead see a manageable number of leans.
Boom! Welcome aboard, Wyatt.
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.
Is this for real? Does Tate really keep a white board going?
Aside from the completely-out-of-the-blue commitments, this one really came out of nowhere. Could be a very good Friday.
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 would take Okudah, Shaun Wade, and Riep (I put them in the order of my confidence). I think Lamont stays in PA and the longer we get to the high school season with Shaun in the fold, the better.
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.
