Thursday Quick Hits: Jordan Paskorz Commits to Michigan

  • Michigan plays Alabama in the Women’s College World Series at 7 p.m. on ESPN.
  • Pennsylvania defensive end Jordan Paskorz committed to Michigan on Wednesday. Paskorz is an ideal fit in Michigan’s defense as a hybrid defensive end/linebacker (a “spinner,” as the position is known to most), and is rated as a three-star at DE on both Rivals and Scout. ESPN grades him as a 78 and has an evaluation that talks about his versatility. Paskorz’s other offers are from Minnesota, Pittsburgh, Virginia, and Bowling Green.
  • John Beilein is going to be a court coach for USA Basketball’s U19 team trials.
  • Votes for the final USA Today Coaches Poll of the college football season will no longer be made public in 2010, giving it even less credibility than it had in the first place. Why coaches, who rarely even get a chance to watch other teams outside of their opponents, get to play a part in determining the national championship game and the BCS is beyond me. I imagine many coaches don’t even actually vote and have someone do it for them, but that just speaks to how little credibility the poll has.
  • If the Big Ten ever adds another team to the conference, Joe Paterno does not want it to be Notre Dame. He would prefer Rutgers, Syracuse, or Pittsburgh.
  • Memphis reportedly has committed major violations in basketball, including Derrick Rose allegedly cheating on his SAT.

    Why not Notre Dame? I have always wondered why Iowa was in the Big Ten and not Notre Dame. I wouldn’t mind seeing Notre dame in the conference.

    JoePa’s exact quote on ND: “They’ve had their chance.”

    ND is having their cake and eatting it too. They play a number of the Big Ten schools without being in the BT. They make the money and get some of the other benefits so they don’t have to joint. Pittsburg is the best of the other choices and they’d have a natural rivalry with PSU.
