Not sure about MSU, but UM already has 3 RB commits in 2017. Granted, 2 of them are 3* so they may get shown the door by Harbaugh down the stretch, but I don't see them offering and taking a 4th RB just to spite Urban

Comment 11 Mar 2016

Fair enough. Didn't DV you, as I know sometimes people have info that others don't. Aside from the 1 game suspension this year though, I've never heard anything negative about Jalin Marshall off the field 

Comment 11 Mar 2016

Guy who sits next to me at work is a Michigan fan. Both of us had the game on and he went nuts when that shot dropped

Comment 11 Mar 2016

Jim Harbaugh telling Urban Meyer his recruiting tactics are a little "out there"

Drake telling another rapper they rap about feelings too much

Snoop Dogg telling me to lay off the ganja

Comment 11 Mar 2016

The case of a kid who came in with the absolute wrong mentality and obviously football wasn't first for him

Are you saying this because he chose to enjoy the last semester of his senior year, play his senior season of basketball, spend his last 5 months in high school actually enjoying being a kid for possibly the last time in his life?

If you say a 17 year old who does that has "the wrong mentality" I don't know what to tell you. Nothing I read in that piece made me think Marshall had a bad attitude when he got here

Comment 10 Mar 2016

Actually, with a class of 19 including the current 13 commits and adding Riep, Okudah, Grimes, Harries, Lindsay, and Wade, our class composite score would be 304.71.

Bama won last years recruiting championship with a 301.42, and all 6 players I mentioned are seriously considering or already have OSU in the lead. It's not inconceivable that a class of 20 takes the top spot

Comment 02 Mar 2016

Because I was curious and I'm terribly bored at the end of the work day, I looked at all the game Kobe did not play in that Russell did. There have been 10 such games. D'Angelo's stats look something like this:

27 minutes/game
13.7 points
4.1 rebounds
3.4 assists
2.3 turnovers
1.2 Steals

41% from the field
40.5% from three

In other words, nothing drastically different than his normal averages
 

Comment 02 Mar 2016

Sitting arguably the most talented player on your team for long stretches and sometimes even entire 4th quarters is not "humbling his ass." It's downright stupid and a potential confidence killer. IMO, Russell would've been doing this much much sooner if Byron Scott didn't have his head up his ass the entire season. Russell has never been a player who's had his work ethic questioned, as far as I know.

Comment 27 Feb 2016

Few things stand out:

I always thought Powell was more 6'3" or 6'4"

Josh Perry is a freak at 254 pounds, he WILL be on an opening day roster

Darron Lee is also shorter than I thought, but if he can carry the athleticism he played with at OSU at 235 pounds he will move way up draft boards

Comment 26 Feb 2016

I'll concede that dropping .05 seconds in the 40 could happen with his added weight (still unlikely after 3 years in a college strength program) but adding 25 lbs of muscle, including a good bit in his legs, should have pushed his vertical jump up, not brought it down an inch. The opening inflates numbers to get more people to pay attention, that's my opinion at least 

Comment 26 Feb 2016

Derrick Henry and Zeke must have gone to the same person to train

Although 37.7" vert and a 10'10" broad jump is absolutely insane for somebody of Henry's size

Comment 25 Feb 2016

Really? I've only seen one or two that still have him in the first

On 11W's most recent mock draft article, only 2/7 had Thomas going round one. The mock draft round up before that had 0/7 with Thomas

Comment 25 Feb 2016

More yes, a ton more might be a reach. He'd be our top receiver, but people are underestimating the weapons we still have on the roster. Assuming Noah Brown is as good as advertised last spring, you'd still have to split touches between:

Jalin
Brown
Samuel
Dontre
Weber/Dunn

Obviously that's not on the same scale of sharing touches with Braxton, Thomas, and Zeke. But our offense is still full of fantastic athletes
