The relationship between 4*, NJ DE Tyler Friday's decision to delay his commitment to osu (by multiple CBs) and Chris Partridge remaining at M some say signals that M may be back in on him. Still, reliable posters think it's a long shot. I don't follow this stuff closely enough to have insight so, just posting what I'm reading.

From what I understand, Partridge isn't some sort of magic elixer for Friday -- I think he coached at a rival HS and they don't particularly like one another. The real deal is probably Schiano -- who Friday really likes. Schiano is going to the NFL. After the Hillbilly Uprising it seems clear that he can't be a HC again in CFB. But, he has a shot in the NFL. And Bellichek loves him. I would be less than surprised if he ends up as NE's DC.

My guess is Friday at least knows that Schiano is a candidate and wants to make sure. If I had to pick a 2nd choice I'd say Alabama.

...... There's also some commentary floating around that Partridge is personna non-grata among NJ HS coaches as he had a penchant for poaching players for other high school programs when he was at Paramus Catholic. I have no idea if that commentary is valid or not.

Right. But coaches aren’t a particularly big deal these days. In any event, the “we own Jersey “ nonsense is mercifully at an end.

No. It was a tongue in cheek opportunity to post about lacrosse

I thought it a nice effort.

Also, if someone has to ask if they're being berated by Stan then they've never been berated by Stan. Or been in the same area code when someone was.

Yeah, my scroll wheel gets a lot of activity when I wander over into this part of the Lions forum community.

Tyler Friday commits to northern Kentucky. On field performance matters.

OSU does a pretty good job of recruiting in terms of showing recruits what it's like to a player and mapping out their path over the next 3 or 4 seasons. That, and Larry Johnson is about as good as it gets recruiting DL and Friday really likes Schiano. And Columbus and AA are different vibes -- different tastes (probably least important).

Finally, Ohio State's DL production (and DB production) is probably even a better selling point to recruits than anything else -- I guess that is part and parcel with LJSr.

Whatever. The kid they really need is Rasheed Walker. We'll see if they can beat out PSU for him.

Gratuitous Prickery Warning [Feel Free to Delete]:

Tyler Friday would have been the 2nd highest rated recruit in M's class just behind Reese. Instead, he becomes Ohio State's 12th highest rated recruit in its class.

Yeah, not really a surprise given the update last week. Just another kick to UM fans while we're down. And there have been a lot of kicks the last few months.

Shit recruiting class (assuming Otis Reese bolts, because duh). Barely better than a RichRod bunch. 2019 won't be much better once the stars start jumping ship, which they will.

Kind of what you deserve with a five loss team AND not having a football facility like Clemson or Bama. M’s is good, but not in that top tier.

Haven't we upgraded our facilities in the last 10 years? I thought we were at least on par by now.

I lived through Cooper. I will never tire of this, Hanni.

Believe the weight room renovation is now complete. It looks nice from the few photos that are out.
Now if you look at other facilities like Clemson, Bama, Oregon, Texas A&M, and Ohio St... they are better.
Not a big deal, but I would imagine some recruits view that as a selling point when weighing other factors.

The five losses certainly mattered more.
