So the source is "dude on Finebaum". yeah that seams relaiable
Does seem like a small issue, but that's the whole point of the 'straw that broke the camel's back' analogy. See Knight, Bobby for another example of a coach whose final straw was a relatively minor offense.
I will fight every member of the National Association of State Boards of Education outside of any Waffle House of their choosing
DJ, that is simply a brilliant quote. I will once again formally submit your name to the Pulitzer committee.
PSU started off very transparent and has since made a hard retreat. They accepted sanctions from the NCAA then retreated and demanded to get the Paterno wins back. Members of their board who signed off on the Freech report now say they regret doing so. The university went so far as to honor Joe Paterno at one of last year's games - something that could never happen if they even remotely accepted the Freech report.
What saved PSU is that the NCAA lost all credibility due to the O'Bannon antitrust case against, the corruption in prosecuting Miami U, the ongoing PR debacle from sharing so little of the revenues with players, etc. The entity enforcing agreed upon penalties against PSU lost power and decided to make a hard retreat rather than fight for the victims.
I agree they will be highly successful post Saban, but annual top 5 classes and 7 straight #1 classes are completely different beasts.
Looking at the roster I'm guessing with transfers, medicals, and silly season we will be at about 83-84 when Fall camp begins and will have the opportunity to put a walk on or two on scholarship for a semester.
Looks like they filmed the same workout for all of these videos. Trying to figure out what exorcises they were doing.
explosive deadlift with shrug?
Other videos show barbell straps - assuming they were doing front squats?
We actually hit on a highly rated DT from far away this year in top recruit 100 Haskell Garrett. Had he waited until signing day to announce it would be a thunderous boom.
My view is that there was good cause for IU to fire Wilson (otherwise he would have fought for the millions left on his contract) AND that he is a great hire as an offensive coordinator.
If I were an AD at any level I would not hire him as a head coach, but I would hire his an an offensive coordinator. Offensive coordinators do not have authority over any of the things that got Wilson fired at IU.
I have confidence in the OSU strength staff. They have a stable leader with a history of developing players and no issues around putting injured players back out on the playing field.
He learned something from the Senator even if he was never coached by him.
Correct! The tax payer did not fund one bit of his education. Those of us going to games, buying licensed clothing, and paying for ESPN/BTN/etc. paid for his education. We got our money's worth and then some.
I'm actually surprised more people don't do what he did. Most kids who transfer will never have a career in the NFL. Perhaps focusing on the next chapter is a wiser choice than looking for one or two more years of maybe playing at a smaller school.
It's the S&C coach's job to know and take into consideration the athletes conditioning before prescribing a workout. The S&C coach failed miserably to perform a core responsibility of his job.
Can't really call it a coaching sanfu against MSU - the offense was bad from game 2 to game 11.
I think the main reason the semi final game ratings were up this year vs. last (both on NYE) was because at least the games were played earlier this year - less competition with NYE parties.
No chance Noah is thinking I'll get passed by the OSU receiving room, but I'll make it on an NFL roster no problem.
Where the hell did you get these stats? Or did you just watch 26 DVRed games noting each pass attempt? +1
I agree I would have preferred to move Warriner to OL coach and move Studawa to another school. I may be easier to take a demotion in responsibilities at a brand new school rather than the current one.
I think if we played Oklahoma next week they should be the favorite. They improved during the later part of the season, we regressed. Oklahoma deserves the higher ranking.
Agree, but even more important than improving one's draft status is improving one's game so you can actually stay in the league. Jalin would have gotten more experience playing at OSU this past year than his 150 yards for the Jets. That may have translated to staying in the NFL longer or even getting to that second contract.
I hope so. Hope I am wrong, but I see him struggling to be on a 53 man roster next year.
I don't think he had 'all that talent'. If he did he would have gotten open more often. As is his best game consisted of going over the dbs. That's a nice skill but an even better skill is beating the db.
This is not an accurate characterization. The NFL is conservative with it's draft projections. They don't benefit from players leaving too soon; in fact the NFL is better off if college football is a farm league with the fruit not being picked before it's ready.
This thing about trimming players didn't exist to the extent it did today back in 2002.
I would lump Noah in with the other receivers. He can't get separation and his hands are good, but not great. He did drop a likely touchdown late in the game against Clemson.
