but Crowell was SEC Freshman of the Year when he played. My point is Rod Smith was given every opportunity to succeed at OSU and couldn't get on the field in cfb. Don't see how he'll be able to beat out NFL talent (granted he was sitting behind NFL talent in Hyde in Smith's junior year).
In today's skull session, DJ says Rod Smith is an NFL talent and will get his chance at the next level. I know his measurables are absurd, but does anyone actually see him catching on with an NFL team? Seems like that may just be kicking his can full of potential down the road..
why didn't Curtis Samuel get any carries? is there any lingering issue with his ankle?
the RB looked like the last place finisher on an ep of Pros v. Joes.
(man that was a good show)
great write up, but while PSU doesn't scare me much, this sentence had me thinking:
". . the Big Ten [has not had] a quarterback selected in the first round of the NFL draft since former Nittany Lion, Kerry Collins did so in 1995."
Seemed pretty damning til I realized the B1G put Brees, Brady, Wilson in the league the Midwestern way - high quality but humble and understated.
"likely hood" took me a second to figure out
"Did Brady Hoke Grow a Beard?" - not just any beard, DJ - that is a masterpiece.
his cankles look bigger than my head!
agreed. hope his father is doing well, but ima be salty if he doesn't sign somewhere close to TX.
hopefully we can find a new pic to run with the headline..
Edit: much better
I see your point, but current players helping to bring in recruits is probably based more about personalities vibing than a player's star rating.
Hilliard does seem like a very mature, thoughtful person that other players respect, though.
ya Porter ran a top program bringing in stud recruits from all over, but I think they won the tourney a year before Yedlin arrived?
and played his college football with the Zips!
Interesting that he recruited well and recruited more athletic players here. I heard a knock on him from Maryland fans was that he wouldn't recruit some of the more athletic guys from the area if they didn't fit his system - Maryland is very fertile with bball talent (Durant, Melo, Beasley, Lawson in the past decade), yet not many of them stayed home. Then again, maybe they would've bolted even if he had recruited them harder.
even if you get away with rape, you'll still get caught with crabs
Interesting. Thanks for the reply and sorry for the oversight. I'm on an old version of Internet Explorer on my work laptop at the moment. I'll report back if it is the same on my MBP at home.
joined the 11w at the height of Craft's popularity (hence the handle), and although the team is now struggling, that has had no effect on Craft's playing style or effort. We are not winning much these days, but the next generation of Buckeyes, whether they are currently riding the pine or watching from home, are figuring out what Buckeyes aspire to by watching Craft carry himself. His energy and team-play make you want him to succeed not just because he is a Buckeye and not just as basketball player.
Say it with me now - Craft to the Rafters.
PS - Can someone with connections please get UFM to pick Craft up at safety as a grad student? How did Coach Paulus pull that off??
I've been expecting big things from day one - ^^ - and love how his legendary career has unfolded. Next accomplishment to check off- leading this group to a NC in his last game in his soon-to-be-retired #4.
and stoney just got the call up -
does anyone see some JJ Watt in Bosa's play? Man was Watt nasty in that loss to Wisco - Pryor could not elude him.
Ian Rapoport @RapSheet 19m
#Seahawks officially ruled Antoine Winfield as being cut, instead of retiring. Means he can now collect his $1M in guarantees. Cool.
trying to ask this in the least creepy way possible ... but can anyone identify the LB or DE at the 45 sec mark? dude is JACKED
