Hitting the Links Is All Work, No Play
Honestly, this is fine. (Missouri head coach Barry Odom had similar things to say the other day.) It will still make it more enjoyable whenever Michigan takes a blue-chip recruit out of the deep south, though. Also, a shout-out to Kingston Davis, who easily could have been a four-star.
He'll probably be hosting the thing, then clean up the place after. He has every job.
Rest in peace, Howard. Thanks for the decades of love and work you put in.
What a shocker. There are already natural constraints on how much teams will use satellite camps; Georgia coach Kirby Smart very kindly elaborates on some of them here.
While we're sharing Athlon links, here are the top ten assistant coach hires if you want a refresher. Spoiler: Don Brown makes the list.
I disagree with a lot of this list (no way Harbaugh is lower than #2), but it's still a fun topic.
538 (I may be breaking some unspoken rule by not spelling it out, but if so, high five, ESPN) has a good article on Ohio State's performance in the 2016 draft. In other news, Ohio State's luck regarding its third-string quarterback may have come to an end.
SMSB has grown leaps and bounds since its inception in 2004, and this year they will have six camps around the country. Great, great stuff that started in southeast Michigan.
Some background: Penn State has not wanted to embrace this in-state battle as a "rivalry." Marino is an old Panther.
Wolf Pack football will play at Northwestern in 2017 and get its second-largest one-game payout in program history. https://t.co/DUSuYfyAAI— Chris Murray (@MurrayRGJ) May 3, 2016
Also, I thought this was interesting: the Seahawks picked up Wisconsin vagabond Tanner McEvoy as an undrafted free agent. This is probably a good choice. (I enjoyed that highlight video a lot, but be warned that there's adult language.)
Perception of Michigan State football slipping outside of nation's top 10: The Spartans fell outside the top ... https://t.co/WcO411DU6P— Spartans News (@SpartansMLive) May 4, 2016
I really, really hope the Big Ten shows up to its non-conference games - UW-LSU at Lambeau Field, Michigan State-Notre Dame, Ohio State-Oklahoma, Nebraska-Oregon and Penn State-Pitt are the biggest. Iowa-North Dakota State could be sneakily good, too, if NDSU can find a way to replace Carson Wentz.
Jordan Howard said he wasn't expecting the Bears to draft him. They only talked at the NFL Combine. Was really happy they did. #iufb— Sam Beishuizen (@Sam_Beishuizen) May 4, 2016
Indiana RB Devine Redding could declare early after 2016 and try to make it three in a row for IU. He had 1,012 yards last year on 4.5 yards a carry, to go along with 9 touchdowns.
MSU joins Florida, Michigan, Nebraska and USC as the only programs with at least one draft choice for 50 consecutive years. #NFLDraft— Spartan Football (@MSU_Football) May 1, 2016
All right, not bad, little brother.
