They are building a good team down there, and I think Butch Jones is a good coach and an excellent recruiter. 

MSU and Ole Miss are also helping the recruiting pitch that you can build a team in the SEC and compete against the big boys for national championships.

Birm has gone on record as saying that if Kentucky wins eight games that Harris will go there. Kentucky isnt going to win 8 games, so I guess improvement threshold was a bit lower according to Birm 

Comment 22 Oct 2014

Aside from a wish list, I think a reasonable expectation:

Torrance Gibson

Mike Weber (or Harris if he wants in, but I think he's UK bound at this point)

Lawrence Cager

Matt Burrell

That puts us at 23. I don't think we will take anymore than 24, but that 24th commit has to be a "have to take him no matter what" player:

Roundtree, Sweat, Gallimore, Kirk -- but I think these guys are highly unlikely at this point.

Yes, with the exception of BC, but we lost to VT at home. Still favors Winston, but it really doesn't matter. If Barret can carry his team past MSU in Spartan Stadium, then you can start comparing stats. Until then, it doesn't really matter. 

Comment 20 Oct 2014

Yeah, stats wise, he's neck and neck with Winston last year, but as far as Heisman hype goes, it's about the TEAM as well, and signature wins. 

Florida State killed every team they played, and in week 7 or 8, they went into Clemson against a top ranked team on a night national televised game and clobbered Clemson. Winston throw for almost 450 yards and 3TDs in that game, and rushed in another TD. That was the turning point. 

If JT can go into East Lansing and put up a similar performance and help his team beat MSU, then he has a chance to win the Heisman. 

Comment 15 Oct 2014

Yeah, I doubt if it was something illegal or not allowed that the coaches would be carrying it in a white bottle and pulling it out on the sidelines. It seems they didn't try to mask it at all, so yeah, probably just some advil and that's it.

Who do you guys think should be playing over a current veteran starter that isn't? McMillan? Booker? 

jamarco? Knox? We already have a pretty young this point, do we just write the season off and build experience fir the young guys?

This year has to be used as a learning season.........once Brax went down, we all knew deep inside that we weren't good enough to beat the Oregon, Florida State or even Michigan States of the college football world. 

We have a really really young team. This was our QBs first game against a big conference team. We returned zero players on the oline that are playing the same position last year. 

It's time to take our lumps.........hopefully it doesn't affect recruits

Comment 26 Aug 2014

I love it too, but if you keep on winning, then you become the cinderalla and back to the favorites with the pressure

Comment 25 Aug 2014

My question is, if Gibson is a silent verbal to OSU, and his OV to OSU is his only one, why wait a month and a half after the visit to commit? If he's already made up his mind that is....

Why not commit at the VTech game and help Hilliard and Cornell recruit?
