You can't scheme for one player vs Bama. Part of Cooper's success is based on the fact Bama has an excellent downhill running game with two future NFL backs. Jones is also very explosive also. I think some people are underestimating Alabama's offensive talent.
If Pete Carroll and Nick Saban could create national powers at USC and Bama with average NFL resumes, Harbaugh with a 14 year NFL playing career and a better coaching resume will do well at Michigan. They will be competeting for titles in 3-4 years.
Springs, Winfield, Gamble
Auburn has plenty of weapons. Coates is one of the top 3-4 we in college football, they also have an excellent offensive system.
I thought when on signing day it had a chance to be the best class since 96 (Boston, Wiley, Katzenmoyer etc).
Tressel's first class wasn't that great. His second class was pretty good, although I think '13 was better. '14 has a lot of potential also.
I think you are naive. I would assume most perennial football powers take care of their players, Bama, USC, OSU, ND, Texas etc. Just my opinion.
Stoops and Oklahoma have a pretty good reputation, but I remember their 5 star going qb about 10 years ago and another player were on the payroll at a car dealership for a no show job.
Boosters are very resourceful. They could have multiple players receiving benefits at a football power and the head coach not even know the details.
It would be better to split carries. Why risk the injuries before you get paid?
LOL I think 305buck is right....the coaching staff aren't mind readers. If they were they would be able to save a lot of money on travel.
Braxton has one year left. I don't see a 2015 recruit worried about Braxton's future at all
So could John Elway. How well did that work out for him in the NFL?
Excellent point. An accurate arm means nothing if it is weak also.
It's not a top 10 job now, and I don't think it will be ever again. Top 20 seems more accurate.
I always tell people, I attended the 2002 game and 2006 game, and I while I recall the 2006 game being insanely loud from start to finish, in 02 I swear the fourth quarter wasn't as loud as you think it be, and you could definitely tell as Michigan was driving , there was almost a collective sense of impending doom, like they are going to rip our hearts out again. It wasn't silent, more like half the crowd saying let's go!, and the other half thinking "Please not again". 2006 was a 1vs2 game and Michigan kept battling, but the atmosphere was different.
Freshman in '94 also. I am still not sure I have ever seen campus as wild as after that game, maybe the home ND victory. High Street was wild in those days, with the metal "ropes" they used to have after game days.
I was thinking lack of experience and familiarity with Texas. I have heard people have the opinion, and agree, that Morris made a very smart move. Very few coaches do well at there first job. Look at Muschamp for example. Most successful head coaches at power programs had multiple head coaching gigs.
Glenn vs Pitt, George vs Illinois, Smith vs Michigan in 04 and 06. Boston vs Michigan in 98. I am a little young for Spielman in 86.
Yes, it does seem he is doing the little things that help teams win.
It seems OSU has more wr on the roster than Bama, and more on the two deep returning. Also McLaurin coming off a redshirt and explosive H back talent like Marshall, Wilson and Campbell who reshirted. OSU probably does have more depth than Bama. I know Bama has Robert Foster, Chris Black and the Kief kid from Cincy LaSalle returning.
Edit-forgot about Johnnie Dixon, another wr who played this year unlike McLaurin.
I am not 100% sure, but I have as of now it looks like OSU is only 1 over, not 3. Between transfers and medicals it will work out. Bogard is having his third ACL rehab, which is tough for example.
Edit- by my count OSU also has 21 spots available, which means the +1 people were right (I think)
18 year olds , actually 17 and 16 years old don't about the last two decades as much as the last 5 years or so.
From what I understand his regular season schedule was pretty weak. Not that he hasn't or even needed to prove himself with this playoff run, but his high school is kind of in the middle of nowhere. For example, Jerome Baker at Benny despite being D4 and Paris Campbell and Dante Booker at ASVSM would have played tougher season games. Fact is his team is playing for a state title next week.
I would assume Perry is better than his back-up, but shedding blocks is not one of his or Grant's strengths. Average at best.
Wilson and Dunn are from the same high school class, and Wilson is from Akron, plus Michigan recruited Dunn. They probably know each other
Plenty of people are sick of attitudes like yours. Personally I think you are an idiot for debating a topic that isn't really an issue right now, and won't be til at least spring football if not next fall. I also don't know why it is a debate, the coaching staff will choose the best option for the team when the time arises, so there is really no need for the topic honestly at this juncture IMO.
I see our starting wideouts playing on Sundays.
