That's the gym I work out at, they ares still there
To be fair, Tressel had 11 recruiting classes including the 2001 class had little time to work on (and the 2011 class he never got to coach) Meyer has had 4 classes, including the 2012 class he had less than two months to work on, and the 2015 class hasn't been to camp yet.
You often see when OSU signs a 3 star recruit comments along the lines of "trust Meyer and the staff". If Meyer, Coombs, Fickell, Ash, etc. thought Conley was a better corner than Webb or whomever coming out of spring ball, trust them.
I have just seen comments, not ripping the kid so much as not having faith in him because he had a rough outing vs a very good team as a redshift freshman. JT Barrett improved a lot as a redshirt freshman after a few starts with experience and coaching. It isn't out of the realm of possibility Conley could do the same.
I have to ask also, was he not that great of a pro prospect? Was it the system and style of football that helped him garner so many tackles? Some of the tackle numbers from guys like him, Spielman, etc are insane. I know Spielman had a good NFL career.
Seniority should be a factor but not the end all be all. OSU is loaded so seniority is probably more of a factor. If a team isn't that talented and the best overall player is a sophomore, then I would rather hear him speak than a senior.
What he said
I don't think he ever would have played much at OSU.
He really is from the link I saw, a confidentiality agreement at the door.
That being a more logical way is a a matter of opinion. I don't think there is any way I'd really knowing if it will be easier to repeat in BCS playoffs. There are major differences in the playoffs. I believe 16 teams make the D3 playoffs, so you make a great point about 1 loss not screwing you, but I would be curious to see how many repeat champs had multiple losses. I think it would be hard to make the BCS playoffs with two losses. Personally I don't think it will be that much easier to repeat with this new format with only 4 teams.
EDIT- the amour of repeat champions in D3 has more to do than a lack of parity more than a playoff system. Mount Union and Wisconsin Whitewater have met for the championship 9 times in the past 10 years. I do not forsee ever a situation where say OSU and Alabama play each other 9 times in 10 years regardless of format.
It's funny, I don't like him singing, but I love his music. I think may be best music producer in my lifetime. He is a genius, a savant when it comes to making beats, I have a playlist I made just from the incredible beats he has made over the years. There is a reason artists pay 6 figures for a Neptunes beat.
Just the Warriors.
I am not sure those are great comparisons. Yeah, those guys aren't great shooters, but they are ridiculously explosive athletes and NBA All-Stars. All high draft picks. There may be a place for Craft, like there is for Patrick Beverly's or Nate Robinson's offense. I just it isn't right to compare him to athletes that have proven themselves to be freaks at the NBA level.
Isn't its percentage of how many TV sets are on at the time?
To each their own. Their show has lasted a long time. Greenie is a NW alum and Golic an ND degree, they have some amount of talent. I hate Cowherd so this is great news.
He is a junior in high school. You are probably right. He looks about the size of Burrow or Gibson though.
I don't have a problem with the eye test. As stated above, OSU probably got in the playoff due to the eye test.
Statistics are great, but to me they are more reliable in professional leagues than amateur leagues. There are lots of variables in college sports such as conference strength and schedule thata in my opinion makes statistics harder to judge than say the NFL or MLB.
I guess another way to put it is pro statistics > college statistics > high school statistics. The eye test has to be factor at least.
It is fair to note Ginn has set NFL records in the return game, such as two kickoff returns in the same quarter. Players like that only come around every 10-15 years.
I kind of agree. I love the fight song, Script Ohio, , Carmen Ohio. The uniforms are fine, although I like grey stripes .I am an alum, some of the sights and sounds give me the chills. The only thing that kind of annoys me is Hang On Sloopy. Does nothing for me, and its kind of dated.
I wouldn't say 3 stars pan out more often than not. Also 5 stars pan out the most often, then 4 stars, if you are judging by all conference selections and NFL draft results.
Basketball contracts are guaranteed, as are most sports.
I am pretty sure NFL players end up broke the most often. They make the least amount, and there are more of them.
I am going to miss SVP. Probably my favorite radio host on ESPN.
I meant tool in the sense he is arrogant. That is one of the ways the word "tool" is commonly used in society. I don't care how much prep he does for a show. Maybe it takes him 8 hours to prep to come across as toolish as he does for his show.
I can understand the hate. He comes across as arrogant and smarter than everyone in the room. Kind of like Beau Bishop. I guess it's cool he like Urban, but I still think he is a tool.
Randy Moss was a student of the game and had good practice habits. He was excellent at catching with his hands, he was one the best from what I read by not widening his eyes as the ball was approaching him, which takes a lot of discipline and practice.
