I'm on a 3-day vaca in Gatlinburg. The tribe are tied up in the 9th and I can't watch. No NFL network, so I'm stuck watching the draft on ESPN.
I don't think there's a single can't miss prospect in this class. I see a lot of Christian Ponders and Ryan Tannehills. I really don't like anyone more than the next guy.
Thank you both for furthering my point. I knew I was missing someone but couldn't think of it.
Take Danny Clark and get your guy for 18. Chances are that JT is around for another year. In that case, you have Burrow ready to go and Danny Clark with a year in the system. Maybe even start your 18 guy as a true freshman.
They're all subjective. ESPN is known for having a bigger discrepancy from the rest. They also figure class rankings differently. They take positions and positions of need into account. Others typically just value each position the same and calculate by individual rating averages. 247 is the most popular right now, mainly for the composite. To determine the best, you could track the previous few years to see who was more right. At the end of the day, it's all pretty trivial.
It's not loyalty. I'd expect Urban to hang 70 on him as well. I have a rooting interest in Houston as my second team. And I'd love to see them undefeated with a win over a quality Oklahoma team. Playoff talk would be incredible.
While that picture was loading, I was expecting Titus.
This is the best news I've heard all day.
I'm not sure if I'd rather Houston or Oklahoma win the game leading up to ours. I guess it's really a win/win situation for me.
This is why basketball has become so much more of an individual sport. My coaches would've kicked my ass for doing what he does in that video. There's too much flash being tought and not enough fundamentals and teamwork. I feel like I'm screaming at these kids to get off my lawn, and I'm only 28.
I think this may be the first major loss for ESPN. Cowherd had a following, but mostly just played shock radio host. Tirico not only has an abundance of fans, but he's also respected in his field. The only parallel I can draw here is Dan Patrick leaving, and this is bigger than that.
Can we just change "Tuesday Mailbag" to "Everything I Know About Danny Clark"? I think this might be the biggest recruiting hot button topic of the last few years.
That's an excellent point. Roughly 7 years ago I nearly cut my finger off with a cut-off wheel after being on the job a month. They're not sending extra help to my press box anymore.
Doug always walks a fine line when it comes to criticizing OSU. I'd almost call it his schtick. It's a little overreaching here as I think Urban played a bigger role than we'll ever know in the QB decision.
If OSU offered Amari Cooper 5 years ago, Urban wasn't involved. That would've been Tressel's regime.
Wait no longer. I'm from the same area as Ajian, and this is the local rag. Obviously, this is just an uninformed local sports guy, but he's talking that talk. I do hate to see the best local prospect in a few years go to Kentucky instead of somewhere in the B1G.
Anyone else curious what the other bad option was?
Fatigued and a bit off? Maybe Marc Loving has just had mono for two years.
Hopping around from team to team with mediocre results. Most notably a couple years with the Rays. Last update I saw had him on a spring training roster with KC, maybe?
Fausto Carmona Roberto Heredia Hernandez
Funny this comes up two days after I looked up what became of the man formerly known as Fausto Carmona.
I can't see Meyer burning a year of Haskins' eligibility to be the backup as a freshman. QB is the one position I don't think he'll push early playing time. The extra years are much more beneficial as the signal caller.
I've always had good experiences with Badger fans. There's crazies everywhere, but I wouldn't be too concerned.
That's nice, but what were their attendance numbers?
If Clark ends up somewhere else, I'll probably take a step back from following recruiting. If we're going to be playing fast and loose with high school kids, I'd rather not know about it. The medical hardships and persuaded transfers made me uneasy. Sibley and Clark leaving would make me a lot less proud to be a Buckeye fan.
You can't call it an honest mistake when they knew this class would be small. They should've banked a couple scholarships from last year rather than accepting commitments from guys who are inferior to Sibley.
This is a classic situation of asking an 8 to prom, and her happily agreeing to go. A month later you realize you have a chance with a couple 9's, so you blow off the 8.
