Finkell is Einhorn!?
The supposed 3* DB as u call him was B1G DB of the year in 2014.
...are u sure?
Have you ever heard the advice..."don't take a breathalyzer if you get pulled over and are drunk". Let me first state I've never gotten a DUI or had to take/refuse a breathalyzer. But I've heard that advice and it's probably good advice. But how could we have ever heard this advice...the only advice ever given should be don't drink and drive.
So what I'm saying is...lets be honest...these guys are idiots. They are going to do dumb shit. Might be as simple as weed in the car. Have a guy...who is living of your money more or less who is willing to say it's his.
Cris shouldn't have said it. I can't at all defend that. But doesn't mean it's not solid advice.
It's one of those things that may be sound advice. But that is not the platform to say it in. U are representing the NFL there. Which makes it sound as if it is their views. If he was sitting a a restaurant table with rookies with no cameras...by all means say..."guys, try to have a guy who is willing to take the heat for u if you ever make a dumb mistake." I would have no problem with that.
Why would the NFL release an embarrassing video where no law was broken? I bet when players are mic'd up they cut a lot of stuff out and never air most of it. Makes business sense.
I'm not attempting to defend him. Saying it was completely idiotic.
I'm not agreeing with anything he said. And he definitely shouldn't have said it!
But seems to me he is saying the he knows they are idiots. And to protect themselves.
It needed to be advice kept quiet behind closed doors if he felt the need to give it.
Agreed! Solid back and fourth!
I'm excited to see a lot of the young guys play. And I'm not trying to make this conversation between us a big deal. But my view when you root for someone to start with absolutely no substance behind it. For example...we have never seen Hubbard play and very little of Lewis and Holmes. So I don't really pick a favorite out of them or who I want to start. Cause for me, if u uneducatedly pick someone to root for...u are inherently rooting against one of them.
The missed FG following the Corey Smith dropped TD was a killer in the Virginia Tech game. Often times kicking doesn't win u games but poor kicking can lose it. Not only do u not score points...but u also usually give up big field position. Where great field goal kicking allows u to open up the play book on 3rd downs know if u drop back and get sacked u can still leave with points. Where poor kicking makes u run or something else safe on 3rd and 13 cause u don't want to get out of that under 29 range and things get real dicey.
I hear ya. But to me the ultimate bid of confidence from Urban is not the way he talks about u in press conferences...but actually where u fall on the depth chart.
Ohio State will be a much better team than it was when it faced Virginia Tech, but people sometimes forget Virginia Tech will also be better:
Will Virginia Tech be a better team? Since we lost to them...they went 5-7 and we went 13-0. I'm not saying that we can overlook them...but it doesn't seem they got better and it looks like we did.
Can I ask why you hope Hubbard starts a lot of games? The fact that there hasn't been any doubt that Tyquan Lewis will be the other starter talks me he could be a future All American/NFL draft pick type of guy. So I guess I'm always confused to why people hope certain players start. I want whoever is the best to start and I want his back up to be great too.
except i wouldn't play for a Jordan Brand team. I hear they are shitty.
Umm...may wanna set that for Wednesday at 7.
He wears #16 because he likes that number!
And just so u know it wasn't me who tweeted that. Haha. Here is my account.
To be fair. It was originally in response to this. I agree there is no reason to tweet a recruit. But something's can be taken out of context. And when a player tweets about a hot topic right now in the news. He is kinda opening himself up to responses.
That is not at all what this board is for. This board was made by Birm so we could ask him directly our own questions and get the answers directly from someone who has more insight than us. Not so everyone that reads the same articles as us can give their opinions on the matter.
Thanks for answering this question and the one below for Birm. I'm sure he appreciates it. Maybe u can take care of all of them for him.
