I mean he's a 4* running back and top 20 at the position.  He isn't top 5 so I understand what you're saying, but he is an elite national guy who is seen as a top 200 guy in the country overall

Yea 247 moved Mack up to the #3 WR in the country, right around where he belongs it seems

The problem with this, much like UGA and LSU in football, is that only 1 team wins.  In college basketball, final fours is often how you judge a coach.  Thad has 2 in the past decade, basically on par with the best in the game.  

The team he has this year will be very good next year, and final four good in 2 years.  You can see the talent is there now, but they look a bit lost.  This team is very long, so they may actually be able to play more zone once they have an offseason

Yea it's hard having the #1 class in the country and the highest average star rating in the country.

Anzalone is a very good LB for UF.  He was injured for some of this year but I heard his name come up about being one of the better LBers in the SEC.  So he hasn't been bad.

Comment 18 Dec 2015

I will say it's funny to look back now. Maybe we should bump some threads where people said he should play instead of guys like Perry and Grant

I wish the kid well of course in her personal life

I know you are talking DT's and I think there is a very good chance Bosa ends up at DT most of his OSU career.  He is a bit shorter than Joey so probably shorter arms, and I think he plays a good bit of DT in high school.  He and Barrow would make for a good DT haul

That would obviously leave a hole at DE in the class, but we have a lot of young talent at DE still

Comment 15 Dec 2015

You want the explanation in real English so I'll provide that.

You were born on a Thursday.  There is a 1/7 chance of that occurring as there are 7 days in the week.  Your child and wife were also born on Thursdays, where there is once again a 1/7 chance of each of those events occurring.

The chance that you and your wife were both born on a Thursday is 1/49, since each chance is 1/7.  When you multiple 1/7 by 1/7 you get 1X1 and 7X7 or 1/49.  When you add your child in you do the same multiplying 1/49 once again by the 1/7 chance your child is also a Thursday birth.

I like how this team plays hard.  They aren't the best team out there, but may be pretty good by March.  Just depends if they can sneak in or not 

Comment 11 Dec 2015

This season is completely on Urban.  He has been in this position twice before, and had similar issues occur.  He said in 2009 this exact same thing happened, and he wasn't going to let it happen to him again.  In 2015, it may well not have happened to him, but it certainly happened to this team.  It's certainly not an easy formula to master, as new faces must blend with established leaders seamlessly every year.

This team didn't live up to expectations, and you can look at whoever you want, but there was 1 guy in charge who has been here before and is paid a hefty sum to do better.

I say all that, but this team had a great season and is successful.  Expectations were title or bust, and whether fair or not, that is what Urban and these kids signed up for

Not everyone recovers as well as Gurley.  Marcus Lattimore was amazing his sophomore year, and got injured his junior year, and is sitting the bench now in the NFL

Comment 08 Dec 2015

If Zeke stays next year he will be in a RB class with Cook/Fournette/Chubb.  This year it is him and Henry.  He's a first rounder and a complete player, with much better feet than Henry

Comment 01 Dec 2015

Eh I must be of the new generation.  11-1 is a great year for sure, but this will be one of those "ones that got away" type seasons, reminding me of 2005 and many of you of 98.  I don't look back and think OSU performed up to expectations, as unrealistic as those expectations may have been

The beatdown of Michigan actually makes me more upset about the ineptitude against MSU.  I didn't grow up an OSU fan, but went to OSU on a scholarship in a non-revenue sport.  Since I started at OSU, OSU has lost 2 games to that school.  I am 13-2 in the rivalry, and therefore I am beyond Michigan right now.  Perhaps if we go on a losing streak to them the Game will mean more to me again.  When it means a B1G title or title shot, it still has a great impact.  This year it didn't to be honest

Comment 03 Nov 2015

See but that's the issue.  Of course he doesn't owe me anything.  However, if there isn't a list of goals to hit that anyone outside the football facility knows, then how is anyone supposed to be able to judge whether this is just swept under the rug

I know I'm not getting a checklist of things.  I was asked what I would have liked to see happen

Comment 02 Nov 2015

I think he should have been suspended more than 1 game.

If he wanted to go the summer scholarship route, give me a tangible checklist of things Barrett must do to get his scholarship back.  Maybe, attend X number of hours worth of education on this or get a X.X GPA in both fall and spring.

Meyer didn't have to give Barrett any additional penalty.  1 game is the norm in the 'industry' for this transgression.  I don't like that but it is the standard

Comment 02 Nov 2015

Well that is not how I took it.  Perhaps you are right.

However, based on the language, I didn't see anything saying Barrett was losing his scholarship beginning in Summer 16 with a chance to earn it back.  I could be completely wrong but the language saying he lost his scholarship for "a semester" doesn't mean to me that it could be 3-4 semesters lost from this transgression
