If LSU has 1 or 2 losses and OSU is undefeated Zeke would be the favorite.  The award is stupid and has more to do with team record than individual performance (to an extent).

Let's be balanced here.  An overwhelming amount of tOSU fans bash Herbie because he isn't a homer and tries to remain objective (personally, I don't bash him and I appreciate that).  

However, Desmond is a TTUN Homer and we bash him for being irrational?  He is pretty much the skunk weasel version of Joey Galloway.  I don't have a problem with it.  But, I'll appreciate watching him eat crow when we kick their ass.

This is why I prefer Herbie...he doesn't make us look dumb.

I actually think Apple is going to play his way into the second round by the end of the year.  He has serious talent, work ethic, intangibles and elite size/athleticism. If he returns next year, he could probably go in the first round.  I think he may be the most underrated player on the D.

Can also play defense, post up and is very durable.

I think that first gif you posted is actually an example of Bosa being great.  He disrupted the entire play.  Lee finished, but that play doesn't happen without Bosa.

I highly doubt Kareem Walker expects Zeke to be ahead of him on the depth chart when he gets to campus...Zeke is widely expected to go pro.

"Jones has no road wins"

^^^Mostly true (not as a starter but he has finished off blowout road games), but last I checked neither Braxton nor JT have any: (1) conference championship wins; (2) playoff game wins; (3) national championship wins; (4) wins against the SEC (especially against Bama); (5) wins against #1 (or top 5) team; (6) wins against an OOC champion.

I'd rather have (1)-(6) than road wins...

Other key components to making a playoff run:

- offensive line

-tight end 

- wide receivers

- defensive ends

-  (other) defensive tackle

- safeties

- corners

- linebackers 

- quality coaches

- depth

i guess if Rutgers somehow manages to find this you'll be in the playoffs, but it's highly unlikely. There's a reason Rutgers has only had one good year in the last 20...

Oden and I don't think it's close.  Sometimes his nba failures make people forget his ncaa brilliance. He single handily tore apart Joakim Noah and Al Horford (when they were juniors). Oden was amazing all year and in the final game, the rest of the team just couldn't do anything...including Conley.

These parents and kids just don't get it...its a business!

If it were my son this wouldn't have been an issue because he would have committed to Auburn and I'd have $180,000 in my pocket. Then, he'd immediately transfer to tOSU. If Auburn said "we aren't gonna release him" I'd say "either you release him or I release the pictures of you handing us $180,000 for my sons commitment."

Another part of what set the SEC apart from the B1G was winning national championships. I'll take the national championships. We're definitely cleaner than the last couple of National Champions and undisputed too!

Comment 28 Jan 2015

The violation would be if the University or it's affiliates were impermissably communicating with the recruit.  A HS coach unilaterally communicating with a fanbase with the goal of eventually reaching the coaching staff is not a violation.  Schools can't control what some HS coach does.

Comment 28 Jan 2015

1) I completely agree with you

2) Obviously star ratings aren't everything, but another way to look at this might be:

- Assume Carlton Davis were uncommitted

- The targets left on the board are Isaiah Prince, Terry Beckner Jr., Porter Gustin, KJ Hill, Arnette, etc.

- We have limited spots

--> Although the sentiment of being dissapointed with lower rated players committing over higher rated players is discouraged, it's real.  I think the general 11W community would much rather fill a spot with Prince, Beckner or Gustin than Davis.  I feel like we're likely to land at least one of those studs and Davis decommitting means we don't have to do any shady roster maneuvering to make room.

Comment 23 Jan 2015

Kinda seems like the 2017 class will be the best (star rating wise). Starting off the class by plucking the top talent in Florida, having a class leader (Clark) at QB so far in advance and having a top 3 overall player from Ohio (that lineman that's visiting) I think it will be epic.

Plus, the relationship building is starting on the heels of a national championship with a chance to repeat and sell that we're a blossoming dynasty. 

Then again, 2016 does have a Bosa...and how great can a class be if there isn't a Bosa in it.
