Whatever. If anyone thinks DT has been our biggest issue the last few years, I have a kitchen cabinet with a 1/8" dried up paint in the corner you can bitch about. Sure we haven't got the Top 5 DT 1 tech plugger, but there's something to be said for guys that can penetrate and move. Moving a big DE to DT has some positives that traditional DTs don't have. Our defense hasn't lost us a game the last few years.
Butler By'not'e was drafted as a CB? I had no idea. Thanks for posting, Scarlet.
Bum- I'm not sure about the significance of .9834, but you're correct about 32 5*s to match the number of 1st round picks in the NFL draft. This is the reason that W Davis and Myers dropped in the ranks bc they were projected as Gs and Gs usually arent taken in the 1st round. And why Chase Young went up, bc pass rushers are highly valued. I can't remember if that's for 247s ranks, fhe composite, or both. I'm not sure I agree that ranking HS players as they project to the NFL is the best method, but it is what it is.
Ask the NFL how their image problem has effected them and their ratings. Now they're looking to reduce the penalties on TD celebrations.
Isn't he saying UGA offered DTR? Which implies they don't feel confident in flipping Emory?
I'm guessing LeCharles doesn't want the hours or stress of a college OL coach but I've wished a few times that we'd bring him on staff.
Ha. Seriously, these are awful. The white and red shoes were at an outlet near me for like $45.
Those are their state recruiting rankings. Okudah is wearing a #1 OSU jersey in the pic.
What's your point? I said I understand it. I'm just talking about a 10,000 foot view, where you want football players to be bigger, stronger, faster, and here's a kid that if he grows anymore, could lose an offer. That's all.
So what type of an offer did he have?
I understand it but it's crazy to think that by growing an extra inch or two could cost him an offer.
Is this sarcasm? You're going on record saying the team that's won 7 straight recruiting championships to finish with a top 2 class?
My bad. I didn't know your statute of limitations ended after your first comment. I hope they didn't teach you that in Moritz. I should of asked you to clarify who was talking about those guys leaving early a year ago, then I would've laughed at you, ended this conversation, and saved everyone else on this message board the misery of reading this back and forth.
Go chase an ambulance or something.
You may be right but I'd think Urban wants Lingard and Snead. It's a tall task to pull off, but as someone once said, one in the car is better than two in the bar.
Sure. Free speech. Go get it buddy. I also have free speach, and that's fucked up. If it had some meaning behind it, I'd probably chuckle and move on. But for a kid we don't really even know, just bc he committed to the U, it has a bad look. But you do you bro.
That's wrong bro.
Your original post on the topic challenged people to come up "realistic" options for players to leave early. Hence why I previously used the term "likely to leave" bc you started talking about "realistic" possibilities, since apparently you got lost in that shuffle. When MoneyMike noted that no one was talking about Hooker, Lattimore, and Brown a year ago, you disagreed and said you remembered people talking about them. Somewhere along the line, your stance switched from "realistic" options to 2 message board posts naming every draft eligible player on the projected 2 deep.
And there are draft gurus who include underclassman in mock drafts, big boards, etc., before they declare. But I digress, I don't have 2 more days to argue with you about semantics on a topic that doesn't matter.
And to use it as your main supporting evidence, hurts your case. Get it? Never mind. Don't answer that. I explained to you why your 3 guys weren't thought to leave early. Your rebuttal was a message board post that also mentioned Paris Campbell and Terry McLaurin. But yeah, your 3 guys were mentioned in the post, so I guess there was more than 0 people in the entire world who were talking about it. You got me.
With the logjam in the QB room and maybe the best of the bunch on the way next year, I wouldn't mind some way to get another QB some meaningful reps. We don't have the short yardage bruising QB a la Tebow, so I'm not really sure how we'd make the seemless transition of getting another QB on the field.
Do you present message board posts as evidence in your cases?
C'mon, counselor, you can do better.
That's the thing about people on message boards, they can say anything. And then some people use those posts to support ridiculous statements.
I know Urban didn't like Jake Butt bc his "shoulders were too rounded." Maybe OSU didn't recruit Ryan bc of some physical characteristic that Urban/staff thought would limit his development?
If Arnette wins the CB spot and has a big year, he could go pro next year.
if Hillard wins the MLB spot, he could go pro next year.
If Barrett gets hurt and Burrow wins the job, he could go pro next year.
You may want to bookmark this thread so you can tell everyone in a year how people were talking about it and that the staff had been recruiting in preparation for these guys to leave. Sound good?
Thanks for breaking down the roster for me. Again, I thought we were talking about realistic possibilities to leave early.
I think we got sidetracked when you said a lot of people were talking about those guys leaving early. I assumed you meant NFL draft analysts, national media, etc.. Not someone on a message board speculating that all players who are draft eligible with a breakout year could go pro.
