Honestly (and I know this may not sit well on a sports blog) I think that war heroes, civil rights leaders, and revolutionary thinkers should get statues. Sports coaches? No.
I always appreciate insight from our competitors. Agree with you on the impact of his deommitment, but Solomon wasn't the only one to leave. Is there a sense of a message being communicated in the wrong way (a bigger program message; not the letter snafu) by the staff?
Speculation and expectations for Cage to visit ND have been there since the day he committed. Landing another DT, then, is just good recruiting. Personally, I think Cage stays either way.
Unless you're Adarius Lemons. He decommitted from Florida on Monday and the re-committed today.
This is a real story.
Some debate on Mgoblog as to whether this UM staff is actually really good at recruiting or, in fact, given to silly ass mistakes like this and the one Mattison made with Nebraska recruit Daishon Neal when he suggested that Neal, whom they were recruiting, would not be able to get into Michigan were he not a football player. Stupid shit that lets talent slip away.
More interesting to me is that there are nine 5* recruits committed to the top ten teams in Rivals' rankings.
The Buckeyes and Bama have eight of them. That's some serious disparity.
Yep. Their recruitments are linked if, in fact, Wade is going somewhere and Holmes wants to come here.
There was an audible groan when Ginn caught that ball and spun towards the middle of the field.
Max Redfield cannot stay out of trouble. It would not shock me if he's gone after this. Very talented kid.
The Miami 30 for 30 was on when I was at the gym today. Watching the NCG section of it was delicious. It wrecked their program.
Understanding that the people "in the know" know a lot more than we do and this could be much ado about nothing, but it's concerning that many of us are worried that a Smith tweet could harm the recruitment of Lindsey, a player that Zach has busted his ass to get to Columbus. I'm really hoping this prompts a more serious discussion about social media responsibility.
I think you could use it in primary and secondary education as either a consultant or, if paired with further education, a curriculum director. There is an increasing emphasis on the engagement of African-American students in the classroom and this would seem to be a good prerequisite. Hope I did not dip my toes into any political banter; just trying to offer my two cents on what sounded like a serious question.
Those who follow Buckeye recruiting follow national recruiting as well, especially when if features in-state athletes.
I remember watching the numerous cheap shots that the Buckeyes delivered during the Outback Bowl and thinking that this was not a style of play that I could support.
I may have Google-Image-searched Taylor Rooks a few (dozen) times.
And it was George Foreman that knocked Frazier out. Other than that....
Wow. Quite an off-season for Lindsey. I can't help but interpret Centennial's coach's quote as being not so disappointed. It has to be a lot of hoopla to take on a five-star transfer.
A lot of guys in front of Victor. Meyer might be buying him some time with that comment and easing the pressure on Victor. I'm sure the blocking is a step up in terms of technique, too.
He's the new Vonn Bell in my book, and in a different class, we'd be in a more favorable position. I think he and Shaun Wade's recruitments are linked.
1. That PSU team was woefully underrated.
2. Wow, did Cooper have a long leash.
Yeah, I get no joy at a kid not making grades and Walker's migration north seems like the best thing for both parties. Hopefully they'll pull it together.
Cannot imagine a more compelling argument than this.
Still waiting for Ron Powlus's first Heisman.
If Markquese Bell gets into this class, he'll pass Jeffrey Okudah at the door. I have no doubt that he is Buckeye caliber given the staff interest, but it would seem to necessitate a current lean dropping out.
Kenny Stabler says "hey".
