There *is* no line to read between with him, at least as it pertains to commits.
I would disagree with that, but it's all good. On the site anyway, he says quite often that recruiting needs to be better when he feels that way, which is a lot of the time. Maybe on Power Hour on NSD it's different (I honestly don't remember), but on the site he has had to say too often, "It's a good class, but not a great class because they missed out on some difference makers", which has turned out to be true in many cases (especially this past class when we missed out on a couple crucial players at the end). But again, I'm going off the site more than PH.

With someone of his importance in ND reporting, ppl can run with stuff like that. For instance one week he was talking up ND and Echols and then the next week suddenly he doesn't see it. But both times no evidence just his feeling.

For someone of his stature, just think it would be more responsible to not say anything rather then think aloud. Jason Sapp was best at this. People aren't paying for your random personal thoughts, they pay for information.
Now this I can say is 100% not true. Both him and Freeman said on the site, even before Echols had decommitted publicly from UCLA (the decommitment had actually already happened and from what I heard from a USC buddy, he committed to USC silently a couple of months ago), ISD came out and said that Echols was going to announce that ND would be his leader, but there were a couple of things holding him back from committing...one thing on his end (the distance) and one thing on ND's end (can't say yet). These weren't guesses or "gut feelings", this was info from legit sources. They tried to warn ISD readers not to read into the de-commitment nor expect Echols to commit to ND.

So in this case, it definitely wasn't him just thinking out loud without knowing anything. They knew right away. You'd be amazed at the sources these reporters have, and you'd be amazed at all of the info they have to withhold for all kinds of reasons. The good reporters aren't guessing at all...they might be wrong because kids change their minds or their sources give them info that doesn't turn out to be true (I remember asking one reporter why he kept reporting that ND had a shot with Priest Willis, even though everyone in Southern CA knew he was going to stay local. The reporter knew too, but Willis' uncle kept telling him ND was in it, and an ND coach was telling him the same thing. So he felt he had to report it, just in case. What are you going to do?).

My problem with Mike Frank is he spends all his time explaining to you why the team is just not good enough to win an NC as if it's the first time he's doing it and he's finally being honest.

We get it, the team has holes and recruiting is not great.

I do think Mike can be overly pessimistic at times, but it is because ND is VERY close.

As for K-Step, I think Mike is more excited about him as a player than he is concerned about the position in general. He seems to have the football speed that doesn't appear in 40 times. His explosiveness is insane and he moves quickly and effortlessly. That and the fact that his hands have shown so far to be very high quality, make him next to impossible keep off the field.

Not as good as Mike Frank would like, apparently.
