Switch Warrior and Pryts in your safeties. Recruiting rankings and the staff's opinion on recruits varies sometimes

Comment 27 Jun 2015

Has to be Penn State, I see the other three, especially VaTech and MSU as single digit wins. VT's D will be scary good

Probably equivalent to peak Boise State. New Year's Eve bowl game

His answer will be that there isn't a DT that we're getting for sure at this point but that the current visit with Jackson will probably help a lot with our recruitment of him going forward

Does Shaun Wade project at safety? I know the staff loves taller corners, but with Williamson and L. Wade at 5-10, unless they have a massive growth spurt there's no way they can play safety.

If they land L. Wade would they just focus on players like Okudah, Pryor, Ford or other tall DBs that can play either like Gibbs?

My wishlist:

WR: Mack, NCM

DL: Nick Bosa, Rashan Gary

TE: Luke Farrell

LB: Caleb Kelly

DB: Andrew Pryts, Damar Hamlin, Jordan Fuller

OT: Prince Sammons

I'm sure this won't happen, but I'd be ecstatic. I'm betting on the staff taking 25 or more again this year. My only thinking is that they wouldn't and then bring in a huge 2017 class with the talent they're in on.

Also, keep in mind that against a lot of OOC and B1G teams, we scored pretty fast and at will, so you have to account for that. The stat should be adjusted for snaps per game divided by total offensive minutes per game.

You can definitely look back at CFB and see trends, but using those trends to predict the future of CFB is way off. You can make very general predictions based on trends like the teams playing for Nattys/in the playoffs will be blue-bloods (OSU, FSU, Bama, LSU, etc), but not for specific teams. If that were the case, Michigan would have turned around by now, because the trend for a blue-blood is that it will turn around sooner than later. Most people can predict that OSU won't win a natty this year, because the trend is that winning back to back is extremely difficult. However, you can't account for the fact that our coach is one of the best CFB has ever seen.

Using trends to make predictions works sometimes, but shouldn't be relied upon to make predictions (at least in real life, non-scientific situations).
