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!

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.

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.

I know everybody wants to be the best at their craft, but I'm sure Cardale has considered that for however long, he's making a lot more money than me :). Real Life Wednesdays take on a whole new importance when you're 3rd string on the Bills; it's much more than just a recruiting "tool". I hope he's working hard in the League and can elevate his game to the best of his abilities! I'm thinking he is and he's loving every minute. Good for him!

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!
