  • Look: Jay Harbaugh’s handwritten letter to a 4-star tight end

    Hailing out of Avon, Conn., Chris Clark is the nation’s top tight end prospect. The hunt for Rivals’ 79th-rated player is reportedly down to just UCLA and Michigan, with the new staff in Ann Arbor going hard after the 6-foot-5 pass-catcher.

    Last night, Clark tweeted a photo of a handwritten note from Wolverines tight ends coach Jay Harbaugh stating eight reasons why he should choose Michigan. Why eight? Because that’s the number Clark wants to wear in college, which Harbaugh promises him in reason No. 2. Also, reason no. 3 is… interesting?

  • Arkansas is ending their offseason workouts with….backflips?

    The offseason can be a grind for players. Keeping things fresh and exciting for them can mean the difference between them all having boundless energy for workouts and the dreaded stale weight room environment.

    It looks like Arkansas has an idea on how to keep things exciting.

    How about some backflips to end a workout – some standing, while others are of the supervised off-the-wall variety? I love the idea and the energy the team has when someone nails it…but let’s leave those stunts to the skill players, shall we?

  • This fan-made “Let’s Ride” Texas recruiting video is outstanding

    TexasBanner

    When it comes to football tradition, Texas is (without a doubt) one of the top programs in the country. For Charlie Strong and his staff, there are no shortages of things to sell in Austin.

    This fan-made “Let’s Ride” video illustrates that swagger perfectly by framing the video as a letter to recruits, and brilliantly uses the words of defensive coordinator Vance Bedford and assistant head coach for defense / defensive line coach Chris Rumph to get their point across. By the time they’re done making their pitch, you’re either going to be upset that you don’t have any college eligibility remaining, or be ready to sign on the dotted line.

    “You come to the University of Texas for a reason – because you want to be the best and you want to play the best. So if you need motivation to go out there and get fired up, you shouldn’t even be here.” Bedford explains to open the clip.

    “You’re here for a reason. You want to be in a position to play for championships someday. You want to be in a position to say ‘I’m going to be All-Conference someday.’ You want to be here because you want to have the opportunity to go to The League one day.”

    “Otherwise, don’t come to the University of Texas.”

  • The most unstable job in football: NFL offensive coordinator

    AFC Championship Football

    If one day you happen to find yourself so fortunate enough to snare an offensive coordinator job in the NFL…. rent.

    Inspired by Adam Schefter, FootballScoop learned that both offensive coordinators in Sunday’s Super Bowl have been in their current jobs for the past three seasons. That’s not surprising. What is surprising – stunning, even – is that only 10 percent of their peers, three in 30, have been around that long as well. Only five of the 32 NFL offensive coordinators have lasted three seasons. That’s 15 percent. We’re not going to tell you who they are, so you’ll have to scroll down to find them. And if you know who they are off the top of your head… seek help immediately.

    What’s the cause of this constant turnover? Surely much of it is the nature of the job. An offensive coordinator may be the only assistant coach in sports that often takes more criticism than his boss. Much of it is unavoidable, with new staffs bringing in their own guys, and successful coordinators moving up to head coaching jobs, thereby taking costing another coordinator his job. And some of it is just bad hiring. Not many of these names from the 2012 column are knocking on the Lombardi Trophy’s door. You would be surprised how many NFL franchises have actually changed offensive coordinators twice in the past three seasons.
