No I'm not joking. No "expert " has us in right now. It would take something drastic to change that. Ask yourself this. Would you take 20-14 or 21-13 team with 1 top 100 win into the tourney? I think not. There's too many good mid major schools sitting there with better resumes.
We would have to win the rest of the season and make it to the conference tourney final to get enough quality wins to get in. It's going to be the NIT this year. This team is too raw and it has no leader to keep it together on the floor.
Dredrick Snelson also flipped from Minnesota to UCF too. You always have great info. Thanks for the updates.
Jashon Cornell if they move him inside. AJ Alexander could have a big impact in the passing game if they look for more balance on offense. There's a lot of guys that could impact next year's team from the last couple classes.
Birm, first off thank you and the entire staff for your amazing coverage today. Who was your favorite class member to talk to?

I tend to favor aggressive defensive players. I've watched the Buckeyes since I was 6 (about 1992) but didn't start seriously until Tressel was hired. Now I follow them religiously. Hence my list.
Joey Bosa but there are a few close to him. My list is:
1. Joey Bosa
2. Ryan Shazier
3. Ezekiel Elliott
4. Ted Ginn
5. James Lauranaitis
6. AJ Hawk
7. Braxton Miller
8. Mike Doss
9. Cam Heyward
10. Malcolm Jenkins
More than I want to count.
Hard fought loss. Free throws and blown layups was definitely the difference. This team would have 3 or 4 more wins if they could make their free throws.
Anyone else sick of them getting away with hooking our guys?
If the basketbucks aren't careful this is going to turn into a 15-20 point loss. This has been a much better effort than last time but it's on the verge of getting out of hand. The officials aren't helping things with phantom fouls, allowing Layman to stiff arm defenders to get a layup and Diamond Stone being allowed to clear with his elbow to get his shot off.
It was Michael Jenkins. Malcolm was a cb. Great highlight. Boston was a freak. Just too bad he didn't have a solid pro career.
I've thought he was the worst official in the country for the last 5 years at least. He calls fouls he doesn't even have a right to call. He can be in the worst position to see the play but call a foul. He's a joke.
I like his background pic. That's very telling and the "I have a scholarship offer from Ohio State" tweet. This guy is straight electric with the ball. Reminds me of Ted Ginn Jr.

No wonder Florida wanted Haskins so bad. Franks sucks. He doesn't understand basic principles for qbs and has 0 mobility for a dual threat qb.
Thanks Gray Box and I correct myself. It was at the Under Armour all american game.
After seeing EGW at the army all american game last year I would like to see him back there. Terry McLaurin would be another possibility and Austin Mack had a few return tds this year if I remember right. It's nice having a plethora of options to fill holes.
Birm, if they don't get Haskins this year, could you see the coaching staff going after Tate Martell? It would help with Tyjon Lindsay.
I was going to ask the same thing. I never read about him being injured.
Looks like we're back to the Fickell bend don't break defense.
It worked out great the last time we missed out on the #1 rb and took a "lesser player". Someone ask Harbaugh how Derrick Green is doing and if he'd rather have Zeke.
You mention incoming freshmen all over the offense and don't mention Nick Bosa or Jonathan Cooper for d line?
At this rate we better count on a trip to the Rose or Fiesta Bowl. This is a pathetic display by Florida. It'll still get spun as a solid win against a good SEC team. If Florida had any offense whatsoever they're winning this game. They have to have a better qb than Harris.
