They're two totally different athletes. Terrelle was huge and strong and has great straight forward speed. Braxton's biggest athletic ability is his quick twitch side to side (and back and forth) agility. I saw Pryor do things Brax doesn't and I've seen Brax do a lot of juking and things that Terrelle never did.

I've always said TP always gave it his all on the field and bled scarlet and grey while he was here. He made some mistakes and then he quietly went away when he didn't really have to. It blows my mind how ready people are to forgive Maurice Clarett, a guy who did try to go out of his way to burn the school down, people forgave Herron and Posey (even after getting busted again after tat-gate)...and then everyone wants to turn their back on Pryor and act like he was the anti-christ.

Not debating that Pet sounds didn't inspire the Beatles (more specifically Macca) to go in a different direction with their music and experiment with different sounds, styles, instruments and concepts...but the results that came out of the Beatles I'll take any day. Pet Sounds really is outstanding though.

I'll be surprised if it's not Kansas. I don't see why he would've taken this long unless he was waiting to see if Embiid were staying or going. 

Comment 16 Apr 2014

Now, I will say, maybe it's more so frustration that nothing comes of it? I mean we do hear stories come from places but nothing seems to happen. Maybe the frustration is meant more for the NCAA's enforcement (or lack there of). Really, I'd say it's both.

I do feel like PSU fell victim to some of the same kinds of things we have during the Clarett excavations, Tatt-gate excavations and the related Pryor excavations. Where media types showed up and just dug and dug. I think nationally Ohio State has more cache and high profile notoriety than PSU has had in recent years...however the potential story that was leaking out of PSU was mind blowing, story of the decade kind of stuff...of course people are going to camp out there and dig and dig for that. For Ohio State before that, some kids getting free tattoos and selling memorabilia was being attempted to be turned into the story of the decade until the stuff at PSU put things in perspective.

I would say that people do think that journalists don't go sniffing around the LSUs and Bamas...there seems to be smoke billowing out of every corner of the SEC and common people can pretty easily connect a lot of the dots. Yet every puff of smoke seems to be buried as soon as it emerges. Every puff of smoke that comes out of Columbus turns into jumping off point and a media camping trip. I'm not a conspiracy theorist, thinking that they just like to pick on Ohio State, mostly it's just media trying to get page clicks...and as much or more than any educational institution in America, Ohio State moves the needle. We're very polarizing and have one of the absolute largest alumni populations in the country. I don't believe that nothing happens at Ohio State; I do believe that things happen everywhere. It does get kind of frustrating when you've got reporters literally camping out in Columbus digging and digging and digging in all the darkest corners looking for transgressions (which, of course they'll find) while other southern schools seem to be robbing the bank in broad daylight while everyone has their back turned.

I believe you're correct. From my understanding of it, the clap was a signal to the center that the QB had made his pre-snap reads, everyone's lined up and we're ready to go on your call.

Good write up on him from someone who's crossed paths with him...

Woah, that's awesome. He can kind of be himself more instead of satirically playing Bill O'Reilly (which don't get me wrong, is very funny...but Colbert is very quick witted and hilarious without playing a character). I actually got to be in his studio audience for one of his shows years back (when Flaming Lips were his guest, which was....awesome) and he comes out and does a Q & A with the audience and does improv (we were informed to throw anything we could think of because he came up as an improv artist) and it was probably the funniest part of the experience. He's very intelligent and quick witted. He'll do really well.

Tate was awesome. I'm surprised he got upgraded (not that I don't think he didn't deserve a higher ranking in the first place) since he's been out injured. Usually players in that situation fall...or more so get jumped by other recruits while they're sidelined.

Comment 10 Apr 2014

Alexander is projected as a PF and Turner as a C. Both kind of have the ability to play either position and could play together. I think the only reason Turner has been putting off his commitment is because he's been waiting to see what Embiid does. Apparently Bill Self had told Turner that if Embiid stays it wouldn't be worth his while to choose Kansas. It has all the looks of Turner heading to Kansas now. Would love to be wrong though!

The Timmons war and Bucksfan changing his icon most notably.

Comment 08 Apr 2014

The 7-footer has to sit out a year. He's athletic for a 7-footer but he only averaged 5 points and 5 rebounds per game last year. He was just a freshman though. From what I've heard he started getting more and more playing time as the season went on and had a big game against a quality team in the ACC (Duke maybe? Can't remember). The forward transfer from Temple is a bit more productive offensively and is going to be eligible to play next year, same type of scenario as Russell Wilson going to Wisconsin if I understand his situation correctly. He's only got one year of eligibility left.
