That's fair. I think 247s give the idea of if signing day was yesterday, this would be the final rankings whereas yours are if they continue getting the same average commitment by the end of the cycle this would be the end result. Different ways to look at it.

As always thanks for the work.

For example right now on 247, Nebraska is behind not only penn state and Ohio state but also Michigan, Michigan state and Maryland.

Remy, I know you like to do the average composite rankings, but have you thought of a different way of calculating the rankings that doesn't penalize additional recruits. Just trying to think of a way where it would be beneficial to have 25 4* as opposed to 1 5*. Didn't know how 247 does it, but they do seem to be able to merge the two.

DJ I know your opinion on golf. I did want to let you know if there is one week you may actually like its this one. Head to head match play at the course named after the beloved 29th president of these United States and local Marion product. Warren G. Harding.

To be honest, it seems more like you'd like it to go on a case by case basis, then by whether the person was on the team when they won the championship.

Its actually quite smart of athletes at this point. Anymore, the signing bonus one gets for their rookie contract isn't what it use to be, and signing as a 4th round pick vs. 7th round pick isn't going to impact the pocketbook too much IIRC. Instead you can pick the place you want to go without having your signing rights purchased by a specific team. Obviously his situation is quite different, but he would be able to pick his team should he be cleared by the law.

Um...what gimmick defense do they run? I don't think I've heard of anyone say their defense is a gimmick.

I think you'd be hard pressed to find someone who think people from North Dakota have more state pride than people from Wisconsin (living in the state but not from here) I would argue that this is much more reliant on individuals who are active on Facebook in certain ways. I.e I don't like anything on there that isn't something shared from a friend, but other people I know like everything and it's mother.

Same. I must have listened to too much rap music in the past decade if the first thing I think of is this, and second being a car grill.

It depends on when the 85 player limit was decided on. Could have been before 14 or even 13 games was a common occurance. Then it would expand the number of teams impacted by the 85 player limit albeit those teams have already adjusted.

Comment 28 Apr 2015

That's on average however. There were plenty of teams already playing the game within 30 seconds. I get where you are coming from, but it will be interesting to see how certain teams i.e. Wisconsin and even at time Ohio State have a difference in number of possesions.

Most important part of this GIF (btw is it Gif like Jif the peanut butter, or Gif as in the first three letters of gift? I subscribe to the former) is that this is the base defensive package. The Bucks can cover the field, let alone the best receiver in CFB with their base personel and the LB stepping out and stepping up.

Comment 27 Apr 2015

15th game of the season, and Oregon isn't known for their defense. I do like the Bucks odds, but wouldn't be surprised to see anywhere from 2 touchdown win to a replay of BIGCG.

Comment 27 Apr 2015

I was thinking the same thing. But, if Tenn does put together a 10 win season that is a very respectable number in ANY conference.

Comment 27 Apr 2015

all due respect, only one of those recruits fits Urbans mold and mentality

This is one of those spurnned lover bad #takes. If only one of them fits Urban's mold, then why were they both number 1 on the boards for their positions?
