I keep finding myself thinking:

We have to feed Mike early and often. But we need to stretch the D with Smith. And we should make sure to get Jalin the ball in space at all opportunities. Too many great options, and that's only after EzE, who has emerged as maybe our best weapon!

My how far how WR core has come in just one year ... and Philly Brown, who may have held us back a bit toward the end of 2013, is playing well for an NFL playoff team!

pls link to the outrage on mgoblog related to Clark nearly "killing [a child's] sister" that was so rampant after Hyde's reprehensible incident.

Good point that Braxton will likely take a beating, but I don't agree that he'll be doing so for free. If he's being honest with himself, he likely knows by now that he's a phenomenal football player, but has not shown the tools to play QB in the NFL. He'll likely make money as a RB or WR, meaning now is the time to start putting on mass and showing what he can do as a large, fast RB, and he will not be sacrificing for nothing.

Tell me if I'm crazy.. but with Denard's recent success at RB in the NFL, and Braxton showing little ability to impress NFL scouts as a pure QB, I think we start JT at QB with Braxton featured in a RB committee with EzE. Braxton in the backfield could also open up new-age schemes the likes of which neither CFB or the NFL have ever seen.

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..

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.

"Did Brady Hoke Grow a Beard?"  - not just any beard, DJ - that is a masterpiece.

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.

Comment 19 Jun 2014

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.
