Does anyone else think that recruiting 2017 so long before 2016 takes some of the fun out of it as a fan?  It's like getting a Christmas gift and then not being able to open it until next Christmas.  As much as I would like to see a bunch of 5* players commit to the 2017 class the realization that they have 2 seasons left in HS dulls the enjoyment.  Sorry not trying to be a downer but for some reason this class (2017) seems like we're way ahead of where we were in 2013 and before.

I agree Gonzo was great but didn't he do most of his damage in 2006?

I would take Thomas and Jalin over Gonzo, but I Gonzo was great.

9/11/1999 vs. UCLA.  I don't remember much other than watching the UCLA fans in the corner of the temporary bleachers looking very scared when we scored.

Comment 26 Jul 2015

Let us know how it works out.  I've replaced a couple and it should take you less than 20 mins and less than $40.

Your risk is low and you'll feel good about getting it working again.  At least I did.

Comment 26 Jul 2015

If/when they win another nc, I would only take Barton, Mangold, Hawk, Ginn, and Youboty.  2005 was really good, 2015 is great. 

Comment 23 Jul 2015

No.  Sans Joey he will start by week 3.  With Joey he may not start but he will play a lot.  He may not have the upside of Joey (who does?) but he is very prepared on day one.  He's a special player with huge advantages over other big time recruits.  He will not be surprised at anything freshman year because he's watched his brother go through it and he's been around the program for so long.

Comment 23 Jul 2015

I didn't say there was no way they would get in over a conference champion.  Had Missouri beat Alabama Baylor would have been in.  At least no plays a real schedule.

so you want to penalize no because of what they "think"?  Doesn't make a lot of sense.

Comment 23 Jul 2015

I agree re: the boner for ND, but I think (I could definitely be wrong) that they get points for picking correct CBs earlier.  My point is that he would be doing it to his own detriment.

Comment 23 Jul 2015

Spence and Marcus were both in the 235-245 range and played a lot.

Cooper is already there and has a year to grow.  Size will not be his issue.  Agree the guy is a beast.

Bosa will obviously see the field as a freshman.

We're going to lose a lot after this year, I think all three will play.

Comment 23 Jul 2015

Totally agree.  It's not a once in a lifetime opportunity because he's played with him at STA and he may again in the NFL.

In theory Joey will have 1 more year in the NFL which will be worth something like 5-10 million.  He can always go back to school but time marches on and you can never get it back. 

Comment 23 Jul 2015

Though I do agree with what Gary Pinkel said about Notre Dame.

Why?  To each his own right?  Pinkel used the NFL as an example, but college football is way better than the NFL.

They will both play the same number of FBS teams.

There is a committee to determine who gets in.

Comment 23 Jul 2015

Don't forget Lee, Perry and Apple.

On O we can play to the strengths of our players.  On D the other team will go directly at our weakness.  If we have a weak corner they will destroy that guy until we compensate which then exposes other areas.  See MSU against Conley last year as an example.

Comment 23 Jul 2015

I totally agree and I think one of the worst match ups around the country is with Arkansas.  In theory if we have a weakness on D it is the down lineman.  Arkansas will have one of the best run games in the country and will limit the number of times we get the ball.  I'm not saying I think Arkansas will get there or would win, but some teams who appear to be great teams just don't match up well, see Oregon.  GTU is another team which could give us fits.  With that said if we get up by 2 scores neither will have a chance.
