247 sez that Gresham signed his LOI with SMU
Definitely a tough situation for his parents. Like it or not, the NFL is a long way away for any player entering college, and all it takes is 1 serious injury to derail a career and send a young man into a tailspin. At the end of the day, a first rate education is the best thing that this young man can take with him into life.
If you are intellectually honest and you look at the guys that largely squandered their chances after clawing their way into the league, you find old friends that are terrible influences at the core. My exhibit 1 would be Michael Vick, a once in a decade talent that could not shake the bad influences from home. Then you've got guys like Pac-Man, etc
The demands on D athletes are never ending, and the influence of "going nowhere" friends while a kid is hopefully trying to adapt to the new reality of being a college athlete can be debilitating. I sincerely hope that MM can tell his old buddies "no" and embrace the chance that Dantonio, who is a damn fine man and MSU have given him.
I suspect Mom and Dad are right though, but wish MM the best.
The "Hyper Elite Dominance" jerseys must be MUCH better than the "Hypo Average Submissive" jerseys
Reached out to a few "Anteaters" that I know. Yes, that really is the UCI mascot.
He was universally described as smart and hard working...a straight shooter. Beyond that he seemed to be a bit of an enigma to the alumni. I didn't get a negative vibe.
Best of luck to him and The Ohio State University
Al Borges is Fredo Corleone....absolutely brilliant
Utah because he surfs.
gotta say after living out on the left coast for 15 years that surfing is the best. Great workout, meet interesting people (surfing is like playing golf out here), and being around the occasional curious pod of dolphins.
Nothing like it
TO is still sitting at home, waiting for the call from an owner that will never come.
closest he'll ever get is hearing Al Davis' voice in his head
Totally disagree with most of the comments here. He is not a fan, he is a player and has obligations to his teammates and the coaching staff. He needs a gallon or two of STFU and another gallon of GTFU with a huge helping of Humble Pie.
This guy is worse than friggin TO and no one disputes what a locker room cancer he was/is
I am thinking he is a total asshat if I am one of his teammates. If I'm Urban, he gets a simple choice.....all in or don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.
You don't know that he didn't. "Proprietary" ingredients are often not detailed on the package.

Good catc +1...thanks
Could be if it is an "I" that needs to be resolved
Wins by us, Sparty and Bucky would be the biggest slap in the face to scUM I can think of. Happy New Year Ass@@@@s
Surely you must be joking....or have forgotten your sarcasm font
Fickell doesn't coach safeties, Withers does.
Alright guys, here is a version of Xerxes Shazier that I ginned up
They gave us their best and came up short! Go Bucks" F the wolverines
Lewan is a good tackle, but that entire line is so out of sync that individual talent really isn't worth much. I watched scUM's line last week against Iowa and they looked liked they were completely gassed by the end of the 3rd quarter. I think that there are a lot of individual mismatches all through the trenches. Bennet is the most obvious, but Bosa's strength and technique are formidable and Spence is just too fast for the lead booted wolverine front. As Fickell starts dialing up stunts and blitzes from his nickel package, the whole scUM O line will come apart. Shazier will be their worst nightmare for years to come.
It is obvious that Borges will try to throw underneath and into the flats. But I suspect we're going to see a lot more press coverage with aggressive re-routing underneath. This will not only disrupt the route timing, but will confuse Gardner long enough to give his protection time to collapse. They won't be able to run with any real success.
But at the end of the day, this is THE game and plans meet reality. In our case, the reality is that we have an outstanding team and coaching staff
I hope the administration just backed out of it. There are million things more dangerous than jumping into a freezing, nasty pond full of duck sh**, but as long as they wear shoes, don't jump if they've got open wounds, they'll live to tell the tale
That would definitely be true this week...and next week too for that matter
An astute observation. +1
We're going to see more blitzes, stunts and disguised coverages from Fickell this week than the entire season up til now. scUM's OLine is terrible and the way to destroy their O is to beat the snot out of them in the trenches. They make that a lot easier because they are so screwed up mentally and constantly make mistakes when they hand off blocking assignments as the DLine makes pre-snap moves or stunts. This makes them incredibly vulnerable to run and pass blitzes alike. If we do that well, scUM's entire O will fall apart like a wet donut in Hoax's fat, grubby paws.
The fact is that Gardner is not a very good QB and doesn't have the experience to recognize coverages. This is why Sparty hurt them so bad...Gardner was confused in the pocket, took too long and got his a** handed to him as his protection fell apart. The guy just makes really bad decisions when pressured. Our front is going to pin their ears back and Shazier is going to be Gardner's worst nightmare.
scUM's D is adequate but nowhere near good enough to stop our O. Mattison is going to get out-schemed and out-manned this year. We're going to hang a lot of points on him.
My prediction; Gardner goes out early with an injury and our D gets to feast on the tender young Shane Morris for the rest of the game
Wouldn't it be great to see them play NIU and lose? I would watch every second of that game...If scUM lost that one, their fanbase would be suicidal
Its ok to paraphrase, just give the original source credit. (see below)
Quackers? Yes, RichRod is curb-stomping their Nike a**es
Wonder if the scUM fans will notice?
