I don't think Penn State was ranked at the time of this year's loss so it wasn't counted. The win over OSU vaulted them into the rankings the following week, if I'm not mistaken. I mean, it's still a loss (I don't think Va. Tech was ranked either) but didn't count for purposes of that stat.
I'll give you Mike Thomas but are we sold on Smith and Marshall as NFL receivers? Wasn't D. Smith heavily criticized upon arrival in the League for lack of understanding of the position and fundamentals, and Marshall seems to be more of a PR than WR, no?
aaaand now I'm giggling
Booker has a shot to be in the middle next year, imo.
Three things I particularly enjoyed about this masterpiece:
1. Dude claps like a toddler
2. During the rant, his buddy is just kicking it on the couch in the background playing video games
3. He is so deliberate about letting his hair stay in his face after a good spaz in an effort to be extra edgy
Thanks, Lefty. I really appreciate it.
Yep. I went with the Beatles for not just the title but those particular lyrics. I could see Jim's mom sighing when he tried to put his mangled headset back on following that offsides call.
We'll agree to disagree I suppose. Speaking of just the true wide receivers (not slot guys) Brown is the only competent one.
Campbell will get there but he's not now. Hill is closer but he's not there now. Clark isn't and never will be. Mack is young and will likely get there, same with Victor.
How many times have we seen these wideouts drop balls or get screamed at on the sidelines for a missed read? You see Clark run routes? Rewind that Penn State game and watch him on deep balls/routes. Pretty much a clown show, imho.
Fair point regarding Clark over the middle, TCM. I noticed that during my re-watch just a little big ago. I must have had my head in my notebook or laptop when it originally happened because I didn't catch the discussion on the sidelines during the live broadcast. After the possession is over you can see JT/Clark discussing it on the sidelines.
I guess I can't personally get excited about finishing 4th-13th in a league that really hasn't been all that deep until last few years. Plus, national rankings offer a much better comparison. Ranking 18th at the high end isn't horrible but still seems not-great considering the talent Meyer scores and surely 36th, 60th and 96th rankings aren't getting anyone pumped about the PR production.
