In the last 3 years we have had Rod Smith, Ball and Dunn all leave the program for some reason.  In some ways, it kind of is on the offensive staff to try and get guys enough touches in their early years so they see a future with the program, without costing the team any games or points etc.

It's a tough world

8 carries for 38 yards and 2 TDs in a spring game.  Not 5 yards a carry.  

I don't think either of us are taking too much or too little from the spring game.  It is a good barometer but it isn't real at the same time

I hope he gets 7 YPC and has 1300 yards, but I haven't seen anything to indicate that because I've never seen him in a live game

You have never seen Weber run against college defenses in an actual game. You know nothing about how good he is or how much better he is than the other RBs on the roster.

I don't understand these thoughts. There are quotes from the coaches supporting the writing.  Everyone is saying Burrow is the backup right now.  CJ12 was the backup going into fall camp 2014.  Burrow and Haskins will battle for the backup role.  

Additionally, there was an entire article about Burrow being the backup within the last two weeks on this site.  It spoke about all of his good qualities there and how he performed in the spring game if I recall

People hate on Cornell but he also changed positions since he got to OSU.  He was a SDE when he came in and gained like 40 lbs to move inside. 

It's not strange for rFR to not be in the starting line up, when OSU also redshirted the entire rSO class basically

It's DT to me, not DL.  We have proven guys at DE, so there is no reason to say DL is a concern as it's only 1 of the 2 positions that concerns anyone.  

WR is not a concern to me because that is a position where guys make plays when given opportunities at every school.  WRs are the ultimate confidence guys along with DBs.  We also have C. Smith, N. Brown D. Wilson and C. Samuel who have played in big games before and made plays whether catching the ball, making big blocks etc.  Those 4 alone will probably get 40% of the snaps this year, maybe more?

It's so hard to win a title.  Obviously Bama has won 4 in the past decade, but a lot of luck has gone their way (rematch in 2011, no OSU in 2012, Colt McCoy injury in 2009).  They won those games, so it isn't to take any bit of credit away from Saban, but OSU could potentially won 3 of the past 5 if they were eligible in 2012 and MSU lose that fluke game to Michigan.  That is why i say it's so difficult.  There are 10 teams who could probably play that what if game annually

My expectations right now are for them to win 2 B1G titles, and get into the playoffs those two years.  After that, who knows based on who is hot and who else is in there.  

Comment 25 Jul 2016

I think you are really blowing that up.  I just read that 247 forum on it, and most seem to indicate he is trending OSU.  1 guy on there said he thinks if the Vols win 10 games the next two years they get him.  

The other Vol fans say "We have a shot if we start winning, but right now OSU is nationally getting their pick"

Comment 21 Jul 2016

Just not true.  Look at the other big games on OU's schedule and you'll see that nothing comes close to The Ohio State game.  their in state rival is 118, and the Texas game is only 188.  

OSU is that much because there will be 20k fans there in Scarlet as opposed to Crimson.  OSU was en masse at Texas in 2007, and there were 25k at VT last year.  It will be the same in Norman 

Comment 20 Jul 2016

To say this team isn't talented and bring up Michael Thomas and Zeke is funny.  Before Zeke was Zeke, he wasn't getting any attempts.  Have to wait a few weeks into the year at least to determine how high the talent and want in 2016 is

Comment 20 Jul 2016

I will answer your question as well as I can, although not many people know more than you.  He is a quiet kid it seems on the recruiting front.  If you look at his 247 profile, I believe there are only 2 predictions on where he goes, and both are to Oregon, who aren't even apparently in his top 3.  If you can find another kid who is a top 50 player who only has 2 predictions in the summer before senior year I would be shocked.  Heck, half the top 50 are committed and another 25% already know where they are going.

I think he will do it the "old school" way and use his senior year trips to travel.  Perhaps he doesn't have the money to make trips to the midwest?  I don't want to make any leaps, but that is always a possibility.
