Durkin needs to be careful riding Kaindoh to  bring in more talent. The race is far from over and even though OSU doesn't seem to be seriously continuing the pursuit, I guarantee others are and after Maryland loses five games this season other programs will sure look tempting. If Kaindoh does end up trading up, the class can lose other quality prospects like last year when Haskins moved on.

If Myer is as good as all the people who know more about football than I do think he is, he might be able to start for a year at guard replacing Billy Price when he goes pro. This is similar to Michael Jordan playing guard now for the same reason (great run defense, still learning outside pass defense against great athletes). Myers is playing guard in High School so it wouldn't be a transition, and he could play a year slide out to tackle once he got his feet wet for a year.

The problem with situations like this regarding over signing is we know OSU is over the limit, then we find out that players are transferring and think it is because of being over. Meyer on the other hand probably knew a long time ago (prior to signing day) that Schmidt planned on transferring after spring, and probably knew that Felder wasn't going to make the grades. He positions the roster accordingly to come out knowing that but we see the effects before the cause and assume he's processing kids.

So to sum this up: Starkel, a player already in college and primed to be the starter at A&M this year, posted a conversation in which he wasn't directly involved where a high school kid said Starkel was "ass".  From my point of view this is way more embarrassing for Starkel than anyone else. He is whining that a high school kid called him names. You need thicker skin than that to be the quarterback of a power five school, particularly A&M where drama around quarterbacks is so common now it is just expected (everyone knows Manziel and the recent 5 star transfers but remember Kenny Thrill?). 

Do your own job well and it won't matter what anyone says.

Antjuan Simmons' hair is awesome.

It sounds like White took notice of Darron Lee getting picked in the first. I like him at linebacker. It lets us bring in more defensive backs in a great class for them.  Also White just seems like a Fickell kind of recruit who will outwork everyone in college.

I really liked it (but I expected to). It was a lot funnier than I expected. I went in on Iron Man's side and still am but I mostly feel sorry for him by the end. The Black Panther was awesome; I can't wait for his solo movie.

It sounds like it's building:

As many as six assistant coaches at Penn State witnessed "inappropriate behavior" between Jerry Sandusky and boys, stretching as far back as the 1970s, NBC News has learned.

And:

http://www.cnn.com/2016/05/06/us/jerry-sandusky-victims-paterno-penn-state/index.html?sr=twCNN050616jerry-sandusky-victims-paterno-penn-state0957PMStoryGalPhoto&linkId=24234146

There are now two allegations by men who say they were sexually abused by Jerry Sandusky, who also say they reported their abuse to the legendary coach in the 1970s.


He found himself on the phone with two men from Penn State. 
"I tell them what happened -- well, I couldn't get it out of me that I was -- I can't even tell it to this day. It's just degrading -- that I was raped," he said.
"I told the story up to a certain point. I told them that he grabbed me and that I got the hell out of there."
He insisted that he "made it very clear" it was a sexual attack. 
"I made it clear there were things done to me that I just can't believe could have been done to me and I couldn't escape. I said, 'I'm very upset and scared and I couldn't believe I let my guard down.' They listened to me. And then all hell broke loose.
"They were asking me my motive, why I would say this about someone who has done so many good things."
They accused him of making it up. "'Stop this right now! We'll call the authorities,'" he said they told him.
Victim A says he couldn't think. "I just wanted to get off the phone."
The men on the phone had introduced themselves as Jim and Joe, he said. He had no idea who Jim was, and can't, to this day, say for sure.
"There was no question in my mind who Joe was," he said. "I've heard that voice a million times. It was Joe Paterno."
 

The CNN article is hard to read. He tells enough details to really give a picture and talks about how he was persecuted by a PSU player that used to be his friend before he spoke up. I'm not going to copy and paste what the player did because it is just disturbing.

There are similarities but it gets pretty different. The views and motivations of the two sides start very similar but that gives way fairly quickly to events that aren't in the comic.

Anytime Loy crystal balls a player to us (or any non-Notre Dame school) I assume it is just done so to annoy a different fan base. He might just be poking at Baylor today.

It seems like either Mond or Martell will end up in this class. The decommitment from Martell will just speed up the race to get in the class. 

Personally, if all things were equal I like Mond way more than Martell, but if it's Mond or Martell AND Lindsay, that tips the scales towards the pair, though I won't be unhappy either way.

Apple's mom has the right idea. She sounds ready to keep him grounded as everything changes with the big pay checks and freedom for school that Eli is entering into. 

I haven't seen a beat down like the first half of the Cav's game last night since the first half of the B1G championship against Wisconsin.

I saw the partial headline "Terrible news concerning Denzel Ward..." and clicked on it hoping it wasn't an injury. Now that I know what it is an injury is far preferable.

It will be really difficult for a recruit to say no to Urban when he is able to truthfully tell a recruit something like "not only do I compete for national championships annually, and send players to the NFL, but I have a personal friendship with multiple NFL coaches like Sean Payton and Bill Belichick that will help place you in good situations".
