A kid that highly ranked is probably going to take some more visits I would think. Hopefully he ends up choosing the good guys in the end, though.
No doubt it's a Michigan fan.
I look forward to seeing Thomas out there this year. No doubt Spencer & Smith didn't get it done the last several games of 2013.
The main page layout for articles look good, IMO. The forums, not so much.
I liked the rivalry uniforms we wore this past year and in the 2012 Michigan game the most so far.
And without putting them on salary, as well.
1. Ash -- as his task is to fix the most deficient and truly non-functional part of the team.
2. Warinner -- for having previously fixed what was the most deficient part of the team for the 10 years before Urban got here.
Everyone else is very good and important, but the 2 above are more important in my book.
Kid is a great player. I'm just glad we're still in it and hopefully will be fortunate to land him. If we are, I would imagine once he's on campus with Larry Johnson and co. he'll be in good hands and will eventually be able to let the MSU thing go.
Ya, would love to see Torrance get onboard as early as possible if he's going to -- a guy like that would be an awesome class leader!
Can you imagine the wrath the mom will bring down if he gets into any trouble at all at MSU or doesn't make it to the NFL? lol.
Thank you sir.
I fully understand the point you're trying to make, but it isn't exactly hard to make the right public relations choice in a spotlight situation where it isn't going to potentially hurt your quest for winning games.
Since we're doing "flipside" situations, let's look at the flipside of Urban Meyer in a similar position. Finds out Carlos Hyde, one of the biggest contributors to the team, was at a bar and had some sort of altercation with a patron. No charges are pressed, and Hyde gets a 3-game suspension. Quite a difference in the way player-related (especially bigtime contributor type players) situations are handled.
"Hoke said takes pride in own character and integrity."
Laughable. Character and integrity from the guy who wouldn't suspend Taylor Lewan for trying to kill an MSU player laying on the ground. Right...
We are very fortunate, no doubt.
Sure would like to hear he'll be calling plays and designing the defense. Not sure if we'll ever get that kind of clarity though.
Saw a post yesterday talking about Ash's blitzing styles with stand-up lineman bunched around the line of scrimmage which sounded somewhat exciting to me. Not sure if we'll get to see anything creative if Fickell is still calling plays and designing the defense.
Laughable. Urban suspends players for simply "being there" when a bad situation is reported. You don't even have to be found guilty of doing anything. Just putting yourself in a bad situation and you get a 3 game suspension. Hoke will make sure to keep you out there on the field unless you're physically behind bars. Terrible.
Glad to hear you guys are doing well!
That's a pretty awesome football. Very cool that they all get one of those. Those will be some really cool memories to look back on later in their lives.
NCAA: <Crickets Chirping>
Definitely couldn't disagree more with the premise of this article. As a few others have already said, give me winners who simply let their measurable results do the talking. Shake hands after a game even when you dominate an opponent and say good game.
These continued stories about the SEC cheating just go into the overflowing file bin at this point. Saban's pal Emmert continues to allow Alabama to pay their players and break the rules. There is zero credibility to the NCAA, and until we have a new governing body that's actually going to apply the rules equally to everybody, it'll just be more of the same.
Low-class pull indeed.
Agree. Braxton's accuracy suffered the last few games of the season, and our receiving corps was not a strength in 2013, IMO. I don't understand some of the calls to run Braxton instead of Hyde, but those may have been Meyer's calls. Bottom line, I like Herman a lot, and I'm glad he's sticking around.
Best guess is because he was given a stint as the head coach at one of the most elite football schools on the planet where he had more talent (in some cases a LOT more talent) than every team he played that year with the exception of the bowl game against Florida, and went 6-7 as a result.
Now as a DC for 2 years at the same school he's shown he can't field a competent defense, either.
I imagine not many Athletic Directors of any respectable schools want to take a risk on a guy with that kind of recent record. Maybe people who have known him for a long time like the FAU AD, but not many other neutral observers are going to risk spending $$ and risking their own reputation hiring a guy who's shown for 3 straight years that he can't get it done.
I think we're stuck with him unless Urban will force him out.
