Yea I think he's got scarlet colored glasses on.  B1G POY will, and should, go to Frank.  They've got similar numbers, Frank shined in their biggest games (17 and 9 against Duke, 18 and 8 against Maryland), he's leading a team to a 1 or 2 seed as compared to a 7 or 8 seed, and they'll always favor the senior vs the freshman.

Not sure if it changed, but when I took Geology 101 like ten years ago it was actually pretty tough.

I get what they were going for, but they could have interviewed someone other than Taylor Decker.  He'd be a 2nd round pick this year and could be a 1st next year, which means he's going to make millions and millions off his hard work.  I have crazy respect for the third teamers who will never see a payday but put in the hours of practice and study time just because they love it.

I don't have a problem criticizing, as long as people keep it to play on the court.  You can say he's not a good basketball player, but just don't call him lazy or stupid because how the hell would any of us know that.

I don't think anyone's saying he should be kicked to the curb.  But when you get a scholarship you're entitled to a free education, not playing time.  He should have been riding pine for a long time and Matta deserves some criticism for not addressing the need at center the past few years.

Except when Joe sucked he was quickly replaced by his more talented backup.  Amir has been frustrating for years and never seems to get benched.

The best part is that you could swap the pictures from basically any of those 25 and it wouldnt make a difference.  Other than Harbuagh, they're all just bland PR written by the interns.  "Good practice by the team today! #hardwork"

Birm -  unless I'm missing something, we have 12 scholarship seniors and are sitting at 88 total (with some attrition likely somewhere in the next six months).  How do we add 20 guys we really like, let alone 25?  Seeing as we had a big class this year, it doesn't seem that we could early enroll some and count towards last year.

He was eligible, and he was a semi finalist, just didn't make the cut.  JK Scott (who was robbed, and should have won) only had 7 more attempts than Johnston but had 500 more yards.  He might get a tryout one day, but punters dont -and shouldn't- get drafted.

Better than most, but I really like Corey Clement from Wisconsin.  Granted their backs always look good, but I think he's going to be a star.  I think it'll be him and Zeke on the all-conf team by the end of the year.

TE - bringing back only Vannett, who had all of 220 yards last year

K - we sent about one kickoff a game out of bounds, and Nuernberger was up and down all year, finishing 13/20 (and only 5/10 from 40+)

P - love the Aussie, but he might not be one of the five best (though to be fair, we punt less than most).  He wasn't one of the three Ray Guy finalists, who are all coming back.

DL - Bosa and Washington mean we'll have one of the best first team units, but we still need to see some depth, so we might not be top five if you're ranking top to bottom.

WR - Agreed with BigtimeBucks.  We only have 2 guys as traditional WRs coming back.  I count Marshall and Wilson as a separate group.

Comment 03 Mar 2015

Why would Frank be on the perimeter?  Bo Ryan is no dummy, he's going to keep him in the post the entire game as that's by far our weakest position.  And we will absolutely not be favored against Wisconsin, even if we beat the heaping pile of garbage that is Penn State - Sagarin would have them as a 6 point favorite at a neutral site, or a 3 point favorite in Value City.

Comment 03 Mar 2015

I think you have more faith in us pulling the upset over Wisconsin than I do.  I just can't see Amir and Mcdonald hanging with Frank.  I also disagree that they'll have nothing to play for, as they still have an outside shot at a 1 seed.  I do think we beat PSU though, so finish at 11-7.  Not too familiar with the tie breaking procedures, but we lost to Iowa and MSU and split with Indiana, so that'd get us either a 6 or 7 seed.

Comment 03 Mar 2015

I dig the optimism, but we currently only have 7 commits.  Granted they're awesome (one 5* and six 4*), but we still got 10+ to go.  Too early to tell.
