Trolling wins, I voted for Ramzy. Btw, Ramzy leads 100-44.

Glad to hear that even though they're competing against each other for a starting spot that Reeves is helping him find his game. The Buckeyes will be better for this.

So in the 56 OOC games played by SEC teams each of the last 2 years and the 48 or so every year for the 2 decades before that, your response is bama went north a few years ago? That's weak. It's well documented how little SEC teams travel outside of their footprint and play true road games.

I could see a rotation between the 4 big backs until Meyer and Herman gain enough confidence in one of them. It took them more than half of the 2012 season before they started riding Hyde almost exclusively. I'd expect to only see Dontre and Curtis Samuel at RB only as a change of pace and to stretch the defence sideline to sideline.

I'd love to join the gif party but I don't know how to do it from a phone...

Works great on my old Galaxy S2! :)

I watched his film the other day that was linked in another post. He is my new favorite offensive player in this class. I hope to see him on the field early.

I think there'll be a Terry McLaurin position in Urb's offense by the time he's done. It's similar to the Percy Harvin position, but also includes big plays on defense.

Not sure if I embedded the link correctly below, but this is a clear violation of definitions #3 and #4, but fits #2. It also leads people to feel like #5. I tried finding information on this year's roster to see if the same thing was happening but it was harder than I thought. I think they are graduating 11 seniors and have 5 early entrees in the NFL draft. So they have 16 spots opening up, but have 24 verbals and it sounds like at least a couple more commits coming. That is the oversigning problem that people have with Alabama and others like them.

The real advantage of oversigning is how teams choose to implement it within the rules of their conference. BIG schools must be at the 85 limit with an allowance of up to 3 more with permission of the conference. It kind of puts them in-between definitions #3 and #4 above. To my knowledge no other conference has such a rule. They adhere only to the NCAA rule of an 85 man roster when camp starts. So, a school like Alabama could take 10 over the 85 limit last year and “manage” their scholarship players down to 85 by the time camp started in August. I agree that this may happen through normal attrition like medical hardships, transfers, suspensions, etc. The questionable part comes in when certain schools seem to have an abnormally large amount of attrition every year. Then it starts to appear like an unfair advantage because those schools get to essentially try out an additional 10 players and “manage” 10 lesser players off their roster every year.

For the record, I am a fan of the BIG rule over all of the definitions given above. It’s more strict than #4 but more lenient of #3. I realize those schools that are able to take advantage of it may prefer definition #4 where there is no limit on how much attrition is allowed to occur.

Wonder how he's going to react the first time he gets tackled in college because it sure has happened in high school...
