OC football said:Where McGuffie will not go and why....
SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA - He's already stated that "early playing time is important". Considering USC's depth at the RB position it becomes unrealistic that he would see the field much until his junior or senior year. If at all.
LSU - McGuffie has already made ememies at LSU by insulting the RB's who are already there. His statement was "I couldn't believe how slow LSU's running backs are". I think that if Sam was serious about LSU then he'd have kept his mough shut.
OHIO STATE - This school could have a legitimate shot at landing McGuffie but they have yet to offer him a scholarship.
TEXAS A&M - Sam has a big ego and would want to play on a big stage. A&M falls just short of that. No offense to anyone who went there.
OKLAHOMA - It's in Oklahoma. Haha jk. This school has lots of depth at every position. At least according to Rivals.com. Yet for some reason the program appears to be sliding a bit. It seems a bit unrealistic that the Sooners will be winning a national championship anytime soon.
UCLA - Commuter school. No parties. 50% Asian school. A boring and very serious enviorment. The student section does not stand during games, they remain seated. Quiet crowd. The Bruins play at the Rose bowl witch is 45 minutes from campus. Won't win a championship. Not a high profile program.
BERKLEY - Not a very high profile program. No other negatives. He would definatly get playing time here.
FLORDIA - Look at that depth chart. Oh my. Won't get early playing time here. McGuffie will sense that Bobby Bowen doesn't believe in his tallent.
So it comes down to......
MICHIGAN - Deep at the running back position but they are not extrodinary. Nice atmosphere. Good academics but this is not a boring campus. Still a party/football school. Michigan's coaching staff seems to really believe in McGuffie. The coaches even promised not to recruit anymore RB's if he commits.
NOTRE DAME - With a last name like McGuffie the Irish already seem right for him. Weiss thinks that white kids can play the skill positions, this goes without saying, Weiss won't even have to bring it up with Sam. High profile program. Lack of depth at RB. Weiss already went down to visit McGuffie. When Weiss called Sam his hands were shaking and Charlie explained that to Sam that "he was speechless when viewing the tapes, had never seen anything like it". Notre Dame was one of the first schools to offer the kid. Big annoying, crazy, drunken, wierd, crowed that doesn't know how to shut the f**k up. This program is comming up, just look at who is comming into the program. Gonna have a good offensive line. The best QB in the country.
WOW I didn't know UCLA was such a lame school. I assumed being in Los Angeles and having a powerhouse bball program would make UCLA an ideal party school. Though I really hope Ohio St offers Sam a scholarship because the last thing Ohio St needs is having to face McGuffie on the Wolverines. Also I wouldn't mind him going to Notre Dame at all.
