I think it's a risky proposition to be slow playing a top 150 in-state kid from Springfield.
And surprised Alex G and Andrew would pull a CB for UK with such minor anecdotal info
50/50 shot this was done intentionally since he got pissed earlier in the year about them forgetting or mispronouncing his name
Hats are in....queue hat science
that question is weak sauce
We won't push over Alabama. They are too far ahead, even with Wilson we won't jump them.
The rankings are sometimes stupid and reward for volume as well as quality. I think the rankings should be that if you have over 17-20 recruits in the class, the highest average ratings should be ranked.
I think he's pulling our leg.
If he's actually torn and this is going to the last minute back and forth, I totally respect that and wish him luck. This is a big decision for him. But if he knows or has known where he is going for some time, and he's doing all of this on purpose to pull everyone's legs, that's weak sauce on his part.
Have a little fun, do the hat dance, all that.......but he seems to be equally trolling three fan bases, coaches, and recruiting analyst, and seems to be really taking pleasure in it. Not cool....but whatever. I'm also the 33 year old counting down to the time an 18 year old tells me where he's going to college haha
the best part, TTUN is pulling another massive DT pickup, and from the south!
WTF? I am just shocked beyond belief how the Bucks just can't seem to recruit elite DTs. Year after year after year.
I think this had a lot to do with the offense playcalling and JT.
There were handful of times where our WR would break away for a deep gain, but JT would either overthrow them by a mile, or throw it short, or just out of bounds. WR production is all about playcalling and your QB. With that said, there were some throws that the WR also just dropped.
I rather the team completely open the QB position to competition under the new system.
In my opinion, Burrow fits better in Wilson's system than JT does. I hate handing the QB job to anyone, unless they are coming off a monster year, and I just don't think JT qualifies at this stage. If he ends up winning the competition, great.
How is that any different than a student who commits to your school for months and months, keeps telling you that he is committed and is 100%, and you stop recruiting other players at the position to fill his position, and then 1 month or even a week or two before signing day he decommits out of the blue with no warning whatsoever? Why are students always given this benefit of the doubt when coaches aren't? College football and recruiting is a BUSINESS. If you chose not to tell a kid what your long term plans are and end up leaving, that is a risk the kid is taking by committing to any school at any time, just like a coach is taking a risk that at any time before singing day he can be left at the alter empty handed.
With this size, I almost want Mick to help him gain 30-35 pounds of pure muscle and make him a pass catching monster of a TE or the middle or the seam, in the mold of a Greg Olson or Jimmy Graham. And with his basketball skills, he's be a nice target in the redzone.
I'm sure the kids will be fine playing for a perennial championship team, one of the best coaches in college football history, and getting a free education. Kids and their parents also play bullshit games and everybody says that its ok because the kid is just following his dreams. Well, the coaches have dreams too. Sorry, but I don't feel bad for anybody in the recruiting process kids, parents or coaches.
I'm over Tyjon.
At least it'll be nice to have Okudah and Wade light him up a few (legal hits obviously) times before his career is over.
The crazy thing is that the threshold rating for a 4-start is a 90.0 and a 5-star is 98.35, and our class is averaging 95.78, that is insane amount of talent.
If we develop these last two classes, it will be a fun 2-3 years to come.
just remember that everyone and their mother CB'd Darnay to us over the past two weeks, and then the recruiting expert god Wiltfong CB'd him this morning to USC, and then he ends up picking UCLA.
I'm not saying Wilson is coming here, and he will most likely end up at LSU, but there are a lot of good reasons for him to come here, and you never know what happens till he makes a decision.
Wiltfong CB Holmes to USC
Justin Hopkins a 247 recuiting insider just CB'd Darnay to USC. Hopkins is about 80% on his CB accuracy.
305, any news on this from Rivals, Bucknuts?
I'm torn, JT played really well under Herman, but I think with the talent we have, I kinda of want a fresh start with a new OC and let Burrow, Martell and Haskins compete for the starting gig
