Keyshon Camp signs with Pitt. Pretty good last few days for the Panthers with Hamlin as well
Trayvon Mullen to Clemson. See Gary, Clemson is building quite a class. You should prob join in.
Carlos Becker announces at 930
Felder is in!
Looks like we are just waiting on Victor and Felder?
Is this feed only for OSU or OSU targets? Or can we share info on other prev uncommitted recruits? Dont want to take up space on here.
Interesting side note from the Detroit Free Press.
Earlier today, his former Baltimore Gilman School coach Biff Poggi released the news. It's an interesting move considering Hamilton's high school teammate and fellow offensive lineman Stephen Spanellis just committed to U-M last week and Poggi himself told the Baltimore Sun he is considering a job on Michigan's football staff.
Cy Young's all time wins record will never even come close to being reached. The game has become to specialized in terms of relief pitching and the money that is being invested in these arms, no owner or manager would ever allow a pitcher to throw that much. When you look at the math, let's say Clayton Kershaw for example, won every single game he pitched, and he starts 33 games per year (his avg). 512/33=15.15. So Kershaw would have to win 33 games per year for over 15.5 seasons to break the record. If he won 25 per year (512/25=20.48), he would have to pitch for over 20 seasons. If he won 20 games per year (512/20=25.6), he would have to pitch for over 25 seasons. And just for reference, Kershaw averages 16 wins per year and has won over 20 games just 2x. So 512/16=32, 32 years to break Cy Young's record. Just mind boggling numbers.
Obviously I would be happy for whomever wins that RG spot but I am really pulling for Knox to be our starter come game one. A fellow 11w member and contributer.
So the question is what would TTUN fans say if Urban was the one pushing lower rated recruits out and sleeping with recruits? You know every single one of them would think it's creepy and gross, bring up Urban Liar and about Aaron Hernandez and criminal records. But because Harbaugh is doing it and it's their team and their coach who is giving them hope for the first time in 10 years it's ok.
Thought of the day - What a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive! - Sir Walter Scott— Coach Harbaugh (@CoachJim4UM) February 7, 2015
Nate Johnson, Devin Gill, and Dytarious Johnson better have a plan B before Harbaugh shows them the door
I'm sure it's very rare to have the CBs at 100% one school and have the player select another. Does anybody know of examples where this has happened?
Is this story accurate Birm? That its Harbaugh forcing a decommit because of a drop in production and rankings and not the other way around?
From what I am understanding, Swenson committed in 2013 as a highly rated OL. Since his commitment he has underperformed to his high rankings and recently he took a big drop. Harbaugh is now trying to go after this Price kid and push Swenson out. It seems more like this is not Swenson decommiting but being forced out due to lack of production. Maybe Birm or another member of 11W can confirm or refute these claims.
Kudos to the staff for being pro active about a potential decommit and going after Williams. Walker has to do what's best for him and his future. We are not losing much if anything in the Williams for Walker swap in terms of talent wise. Both are elite HS RBs but now the staff can put this loss behind them and move forward with several of the WRs, DBs, and DL that we are recruiting.
I know I am going to get absolutely crushed by this, and my prediction may go down in smoke on Saturday with MSU and TA&M, but OSU will not make the playoff this year because as much as it pains me to say it, we are going to lose to TTUN on Nov 28. I just look back at how difficult it is to win in AA even when we have had vastly superior teams. Most recently in 2013. scUM's defense will keep them in every game and I honestly don't think we score more than 23 pts on the road. And I'm not worried about the big plays our D is giving up but our depth with all the injuries in the secondary and being 11th against the run. Combine them controlling the clock with their running game and their stellar defense, we go dont. I hope to god I am wrong but I'm just being honest. We saw just last year what an improbable run looks like if everyone can buy in and get hot. You guys can come right back at me if I'm wrong and I'll eat all the crow in the world. That being said,
4. TTUN (they go unbeaten thru the big ten and crush Iowa in the Big Ten champ game)
Baylor over TTUN
Bama over Utah
Bama over Baylor in the Natl Championship game
Im going to go throw up now!
scUM is the third best team in the Big Ten right now and I will come back and eat crow if I'm wrong but they will not go 0-2 against OSU and MSU at home. They are a 2-3 loss team at worst. Their defense will keep them in every game and they will continue their power run game to success. I've been saying it from the start of the season that our toughest game will be Nov 28 in AA and not vs Sparty at home just because of our history of close, competitive games in AA even when we are superiorly talented. This is not the same Rich Rod/Hoke team that we see start off well and falter late. Harbaugh has this team ready to take the Big Ten by storm and we need to be very careful about pushing this game aside like we will run through them. Like I said you guys can come back and thrash me if I'm wrong at the end of November but scUM will have only 1-2 losses when we play them Nov 28.
