No offense, but being here only a year and a half, you probably haven't had the privilege of seeing this site expand, all while losing incredible writers/insiders. I was bummed to see Birm leave, mainly because if I only had enough time to read only one sticky a day, it would be the hurry up. This site has moved on (and thrived) from losing insiders before, and I have no doubt that they will again. Just like our beloved Buckeyes, you hate to see players and/or coaches leave, but there always seems to be somebody waiting in the wings.
How am I boosting Martell? By saying it is possible for his height to not hold him back? If that is what you mean, then yeah...i am boosting Martell.
Question for you... is your beef more with Martell the person, Martell the football player, or shorter people? I've noticed a lot lately where you have tried to counteract any positive comments towards Martell.
You are the only person talking about a rule. In fact, by helping me point out that there are exceptions, you are helping my point. All I said (in a much more explained way) was that those 4 guys prove that it is much more than just size. Again, I don't think you are realizing what I am responding to. I am responding to the quote of you can't teach size.
Who says that a 5* qb that has all the tools except height cannot be an exception too?
Besides, I think you missed my point on the previous post. If you can teach everything but height, then players such as Russell and Pryor (who had amazing qb size plus some extra tools) should be doing great. Wilson and Brees prove that if you are shorter but have everything else, especially the right mentality, then it is very possible. I am not saying that Martell will break NFL records or win a super bowl as a starter. HOWEVER, I also will not say that he won't or can't just because of his height.
LeBron has the most rebounds, assists, blocks and steals while having one less point than the leader, Kyrie, among every player in this series. I don't see how he isn't playing like the most talented player .
While I like Clark, I don't agree with this statement. If size was that important, then jamarcus Russell and Terrelle Pryor would still be in the NFL putting up Russell Wilson and drew brees like numbers.
Ole Miss with the #1 OT (tunsil), #1 WR (Treadwell), and#1 overall/DE (nkemdichi).
The team I coach played Versailles last year and ahrens single handedly beat us. I expect ahrens to get some big offers over the next year (but we'll also avenge our loss to them).
Didn't the Cavs technically sign and trade LeBron? Yeah, sounds like Gilbert would have good ground to stand on in that lawsuit.
As someone who used to work in that area, I thought about posting a forum on this event. As much as I saw from tourists there, It still astounds me the stupidity of some people.
I have heard that Moses loves to use his high profile recruitment to troll the fanbases of schools he recently visits. I don't read the guys Twitter, but don't be surprised if he does this to several more schools.
And yet, we still don't hire the family members...
Is this a parody? Because it's hilarious!
Where is my thinking going wrong here? I am under the impression that a certain number of early enrollees (6 I believe?) can be back counted towards the previous years numbers. However, the school does not need to back count any of the early enrollees. They can still count these towards the current class and are not counted on the roster until the following football year. I was thinking that theoretically the entire class could enroll early if possible, and that there is no set number of early enrollee spots. Where is my thinking wrong here?
TTUN used this as an excuse last year for one of their many decommits, and I was under the impression it was just that... an excuse.
I used the search bar and searched "black stripe" and got a bunch of old articles. I just scanned through and found the most recent one from last year, http://www.elevenwarriors.com/ohio-state-football/2015/09/60149/ohio-state-freshman-receiver-alex-stump-loses-black-stripe and those articles have a list of freshman losing their black stripe and the date it happened. Hopefully, this helps.
I still have the original droid turbo as well and it still looks, acts, and feels brand new. I have no intentions of getting a new phone anytime soon.
I got two amazing years of my life working in the Tetons. I definitely recommend taking a float trip down the snake river out of Jackson Lake Lodge! ;)
Which makes me laugh when Harbaugh tells one of his commits that there isn't enough room for him to early enroll.
Last year, the Cavs lost by 29 early in the season to the hawks and 39 later in the season to the Celtics. So, I wouldn't say it is uncommon, per se.
I would say crazier things have happened when Stoneburner, Evan Spencer, and Duron Carter all played/are playing in the NFL.
While I don't disagree with the sentiment of your post, wasn't it three years ago that ole Miss signed the #1 player in the nation (DE), the #1 OL in the nation and the #1 wr in the nation?
Bauserman ran out of the stadium fast enough to catch his own pass?
Did he get blocked by the rim on that play?
I believe Williams is a senior.
