Comment 20 May 2015

As a Rockets fan (born and raised in Houston) I have an issue with him never getting called for a pushoff to get himself some space

As far as this...seems like nothing important 

Comment 20 May 2015

You are trolling.  I told you I was not attacking whether Diesel goes in the first round.  I was pointing out how completely wrong you are saying he would have to add a significant amount of weight to be a First Round draft pick at DL.  I said I was not comparing players and only pointing out how there are multiple 3-4 DEs and also some 4-3 DTs who are his size or smaller 

Comment 20 May 2015

Either you are trolling right now or you haven't looked at the depth chart at OSU.  Washington isn't a WDE, which is the only other spot he could be on the field as a defensive end.  Additionally, OSU had depth issues at DT, and still does.  OSU plays smaller DTs who may not be DTs in the NFL. 

Leonard Williams is 300 lbs, and a combo DT/DE.  Once again, I am not comparing the players themselves, but their sizes.  Additionally, Donald for STL is a beast and is 6'4'' 285 lbs as a DT

Comment 20 May 2015

Washington is about 300 lbs, the same weight as Leonard Williams and heavier than Arik Armstead, both first rounders who are 3/4 DEs, which is likely where Washington fits.  Washington is a natural fit as SDE, but OSU has a guy named Joey Bosa there.  The tape is a bit stale, but Washington can be a starter as a 3-4 DE for a long time with his size and ability 

Edit: I'm not saying Diesel is a first rounder but the size thing is not an issue seeing as there are both SDEs and DTs in the NFL who are smaller than him or the same size 

Comment 20 May 2015

Let's go with guys who are for sure leaving (seniors or just gone for sure):

Bosa

Braxton

Washington

Zeke

Perry

Vannett

Decker

That's 7 to me that are absolute locks to leave and be drafted somewhere

Players who could leave a year early and will be drafted (50/50 type guys who could leave or could stay)

Apple

Bell

Lee

Jones

Thomas

That is up to 12

Seniors who may get picked with a good year:

Schutt

Farris

C. Smith

Others who I don't think are leaving but could and if they did would be drafted somewhere late:

Powell

Elflein

 So I think the number is more in the 10-13 range 

Comment 19 May 2015

I'm perfectly content this offseason.  We are #1 in every publication and just lifted the trophy.  Every day I appreciate what happened last season

Comment 19 May 2015

I think Bama should be higher than 8th.  They have a very good D-line (OSU had 2 huge runs but they did a pretty good job against our front 5 for most of the game) and we know a lot starts up front.  They have an absolute haus at RB in Henry.  Those 2 pieces alone should win Bama 8 games.  Add into that they have a coach who has won 4 National Titles, and you have to believe they have a chance to win 10+

And as said, who really do you have above them starting the year next year?  I have OSU as the only clear team I'd have above them going into the year.  You can have TCU/Baylor if you want, but the Big 12 got beaten up pretty good in bowl games with only TCU really looking good, and TCU lost a ton on D.  USC still has depth problems but they have good top end talent.  

Comment 15 May 2015

Most of the time, I am pacing in front of my TV at my apt.  I am too riled up to really be near people who say stupid stuff (one guy flipped out on a bad play against Illinois when we were up by 30).

I watched the Bama game at a bar cause a friend was in town...that was tough.  I went to the NCG in Dallas which is easier.  I am always so nervous for every single game.  It doesn't matter if it is Kent State or Bama.  I worry about injuries or a couple bad bounces costing us a big possession etc.

Comment 15 May 2015

Florida State has had 3 first round picks at QB in the last 6 years. They haven't had problems developing QBs in their system at all.  Some years you just don't have anyone ready to go.  Winston left after his RS So year, so that probably didn't help.  

OSU could lose Barrett, Jones and Miller this year based on eligibility (I don't see it happening but you never know).  I would think OSU would absolutely look at a dynamic player to come in for a year in 2016 if all the other pieces were in place to make a run.  

Comment 14 May 2015

I'm not even sure if Jalin is returning punts this year.  It was Dontre last year if I recall until his injury, and there has been some talk about having Samuel back there.

Jalin had 1 really bad game against Minny fielding punts, then saved us against Indiana in the special teams game.  He broke one against Oregon for 15 or so yards that helped field position, but then didn't even go onto the field for a punt against Bama (maybe his fault maybe not, likely his fault), and almost let another one go over his head.  It was really good or really bad last year, so hopefully he can make the really good happen more often 

Comment 07 May 2015

I'll go with Illinois.  After Minny and right before the Michigan schools

Seems like it could be the perfect storm (we have played there in November with those swirling winds before)

Comment 07 May 2015

I remember early on in the process he said he would not be staying in state.  However, it seems he has a relative (brother) who is a 3* corner who may not get the offers he will get.  However, schools may offer his brother (not a bad looking prospect honestly and has a Florida offer...maybe so they can try and get Nate)

Just what I've seen recently 

Comment 06 May 2015

I was more saying even if he's not taking all the snaps at QB he can come in as a Wildcat and run the ball/make some throws.  

I haven't heard if he will be the QB or not, but Urban has designed QB runs in his offense anyway so it wouldn't be weird to have a few more for Braxton whether or not he's healthy in the shoulder.  More just saying another weapon who will be good for 5+ carries a game to take the load off of Zeke 

Comment 06 May 2015

My argument for the north bowl games is that the NFL playoffs happen AFTER the end of the college season, and Green Bay/Chicago/New England play in cold weather.  Why can't college teams do it too? 

Comment 04 May 2015

I would like to see the quote that states the first sentence.  I have seen he was moved there in spring so he could work on getting away from corners in press.  Nowhere have i see that he is absolutely moving outside 

Comment 30 Apr 2015

Ohio is pretty high on the pride list, but I grew up in Texas and I haven't seen a state more prideful of itself 

Texans consider themselves their own country anyway, so maybe that is why they aren't high on this list?  Anyway, Texas Longhorn students sing the state song in the last quarter of every home game, so the state pride is pretty high there.  I took Texas history up until and through the 7th grade, and no one questioned it at all 

So I think 9 is too low for Texas, not that Ohio is necessarily way too high

Comment 30 Apr 2015

Didn't MSU just sign the Washington DC RB that was workout buddies with OSU commit Hall?  I thought he was a pretty good player. Add in Larry Scott last year and it isn't like MSU is exactly 'thin' at RB itself.

I am not worried about recruiting when Meyer is the coach.  No reason to be as he is a proven winner on the field, and in the living room recruiting kids 

Comment 29 Apr 2015

There have been a lot of studies about how Winston was throwing the ball where he was supposed to, and the WR gave up on the route or the ball was tipped etc

Comment 27 Apr 2015

Count me in the minority in thinking that Tennessee will be pretty good this year and next.  There aren't many programs who have recruited as well in the trenches as them and the rest of the SECe is taking a step back.  UF with a new coach, USCe on the downslope, UGA new QB.  This is perfect timing for UT to come back
