Just guessing he was there with his son just like the Jackets game earlier this week,
I wouldn't get your hopes up here :/ sorry
Didn't win Conference Tournament and blown out in the 2nd round of the NCAA tournament. Wasn't a talented team, padded wins with a weak schedule and god awful B1G.
Agreed with not trusting the WRS yet. All we heard about was Bin Victor all Spring long and to be honest he looked extremely raw still. Never went and attacked the ball and used his size to his advantage. I still think he has far and away the most potential on the team, but there's a reason Urban has been listing him behind Campbell, Dixon, TMC etc.
It's as easy as this. The program is devoid of talent throughout the roster. That is attributed to one of two things: 1.) Poor talent evaluation and the inability to land elite recruits 2.) Poor player development
I think we can all agree its a combination of these two things going on within this program. Unfortunately for Thad, those are the two highest priorities of a head basketball coach.
A real on-the court answer is this: Thad's only successful teams came on the backs of five-star recruits. The only non 5star player who developed into something special was Evan Turner, and we never made it past the sweet 16 with ET. W/o 5stars, Thad is your run of the mill college basketball coach being out worked and out coached. I support him for what he has done for the University, however this season is his last chance. He is no longer landing 5star kids and won't be any time soon. If he can't take this veteran team and win 25+ games then it's time to hang em up coach.
Thats the reason he dropped from a sure-fire first rounder to the mid fourth round or wherever he eventually was picked. He was in several fights at UF, failed drug tests etc. Enough to kick him off the team? Maybe so, but Urban knew kicking him off the team and sending him back home was a death sentence for the kid. Every break home the Gator coaches would constantly check in with him to make sure he was staying out of trouble. Kid was doomed once his dad passed away and he never learned how to deal with that. Didn't help that his mom was pretty shitty all around as well.
We know JT is getting it this year, but I can still absolutely see Haskins in 2018 having a great year and leaving as a RS Soph. Burrows in 2018 as a RS Sr if he (hopefully) sticks around and then Jones from there on.
Ya that comment was the only time I have ever heard anyone say anything negative about Athens before. Congrats on sending kids to two great universities and awesome towns.
Hero! I was looking for this last night before bed and it wasnt up yet.
Seems like a good dude. Can;t go wrong between UGA and OSU, I have a ton of respect for that school.
Offensive Line is always a train wreck in spring games. I was actually impressed they held it together as well as they did. Our Dline is one of the deepest in the country and our Oline sat Jones the whole game and Price over 75%. Definitely need some depth to develop but I'm not in freak out mode yet.
Bragg was charged with domestic violence and then caught a drug charge before he was suspendedKU. DV was eventually dropped but do you really think our program needs this headache on the team on top of our other struggles? Pass
I'm just hoping JT and Weber only play the first quarter. I know JT has struggled but we know what we have from him and Mike and Spring reps are so much more valuable for the young kids compared to the vets. Throw the pups into the ring and see how they perform in front of 70k.
Couple red flags starting to pop up for him. I know the staff won't stop going after this kid hard, but I have a feeling if he was an OOS kid, we would be cooling off until we saw him in the fall.
Don't worry about this one folks. Come NSD he will be a Buckeye. We all know how this game plays out. Clemson is a legit recruiting threat and will have a great class in 2018 but once the glory of that title fades a bit, and he feels enough "love" from everyone he will cool down with the attention grabbing.
Same situation as Blue Smith. Staff is letting the the less thought of in-state kids have their space and if senior film/camp is impressive turn on the heat and go after them. Smith and Taylor are always talked about on the boards, but the staff clearly isn't super high on either of them or else they wouldn't be considering UK. This way we avoid another Sibley and Clark scenario. Trust it.
Ehh I'll wait for the fall release which is the big one. These look like something my dad would wear. Shout out to the dad's out there!
Nigel Williams-Goss would've been nice to have :/
OT is a big position of need in this class after a couple misses last cycle. Jackson is going to end up a Buckeye bit we need a high-end second OT, this would be huge.
This stuff is fun to talk about, but we won't see it much this fall like the articles alludes to. We might roll it out early on in the season to get it on tape, but I don't expect to see Hubbard in a two-point stand much come B1G play. I think it's more valuable to keep the DE's fresh so you can slide Boa inside next to Jones in the rushmen package with Lewis and Holmes/Hubbard on the outside. Fresh pass rushers in the fourth quarter are more valuable than a small wrinkle where we stand up Hubbard imo.
Honestly the numbers looked bad when it comes to sacks but we definitely had a gluttony of pressures so it's not as if our entire D-Line was ineffective at getting to the QB. The big gap was Hubbard who really never got going in the pass rush game, so here's hoping he makes a big jump forward this season as the NFL already has a ton of eyes on him.
Booker no doubt. Baker was elite in pass coverage last season and Worley wasn't far behind. I love the idea but like all of this spring talk, will believe it when I see it come Fall.
Exactly. Warriner was treated like a God on this site. His O-line development was good no doubt, but his value was over hyped at times. Lets not forget this guy was the main play caller the last two seasons and a good majority of HIS O-line recruits never even sniffed the field.
You have no clue what you're talking about my friend...
