Nice article over on The Comeback, DJ. You threw zingers all over the place. My favorite?
Yeah, buddy, I could shit my pants right here and not end up in a mental institution. And I don’t have to work tomorrow. U mad, bro?
Great stuff! Now if only taking their kids to bars was the worst thing parents were doing/not doing to their kids these days, the future would be a lot brighter. Oh, and thanks for finally posting a word of the day that I didn't have to look up. Happy Weekend errbody!
I couldn't agree more. I never thought he was going to contribute after the ACL injury. Big guys usually take a little longer to recover (unless your last name is Bosa). But he is a big-time DT, there's no doubt about that. And that dude is a solid 290 pounds!
Playing in Minnesota didn't seem to hurt Laurinitis.
Four of them are guaranteed to be gone since they are seniors. Hubbard is almost a certainty to leave as well. That leaves Jones as the only one who might stay. Depending on the year he has, he might benefit from staying in college one more year just to fine tune his skills at the position, and to get a little stronger before heading to the League. But you're absolutely right that there are going to be a lot of new faces along the DL in 2018. It makes landing a commitment from Taron Vincent (and keeping him in the class) that much more important.
Oats and Peters at LB for example
No disrespect, but neither one of those guys should wind up at UC. They are both too good for the AAC.
I think with Tuberville it was a little bit of arrogance, and a lot of not knowing how to change gears when he got to a new school. He still felt that he could recruit the Southern kids, and he couldn't. So while he was wasting time in the South, the local players that might have been interested in UC made other plans. And frankly, he's just not that great of a coach.
In reality, we're talking about 42 days earlier than the normal NSD. While that may not allow coaches to see an entire senior year worth of film on a prospect, they should have a pretty good idea about what players they are interested in. I think coaches are complaining because it is simply something new and different, and the successful coaches already have a system worked out. But in the end, this really isn't that big of a deal.
Daron Lee against Navy.
All the best to you and yours, RER.
I also played against him in HS. My freshman year both teams were out warming up prior to the game. Carlos was jogging to the 50 and back. I remember thinking how HUGE his legs were, and I was even more impressed when I noticed he wasn't wearing any thigh pads. He had TD runs of 99, 97, and 92 yards on the way to beating us 52-7. On one of those runs, he knocked the facemask clear off the helmet of what was our best college prospect. Dude was a BEAST!
Totally agree. We aren't a better team without him, but it sure is hard to gameplan when you never know who is actually going to show up.
Ask him to decommit and point him in the direction of Lexington, Kentucky (too soon?).
I saw KISS and Motley Crue a few years back and it might be the greatest show I've ever seen (and I've seen a lot). I wasn't surprised by KISS, but Motley Crue was very surprising since I thought they just agreed to the tour for the money.
I never really cared for the Chili Peppers, and I could never put my finger on why. Now I know, and they're dead to me.
Not to bring up a sore subject, but I saw a lot of commenters calling the OSU Men's BBall program a dumpster fire. STOP INSULTING DUMPSTER FIRES.
