That Rose Bowl...oh man, the entire media establishment had to eat so much crow on that. I distinctly remember Colin Cowherd talking about how the Bucks were running an offense from the 1950s and there was just no way they could keep up with ALL THE TALENT on Oregon. And I'm like, since when did Oregon outrecruit Ohio State?

I was so proud of TP in that game. So proud.

It's not about weather. It's about viable programs being in proximity to their homes and the SEC realizing 30 years late that integration had taken place. Before the early 2000's, aside from Alabama and Tennessee, most of those SEC programs were mediocre to irrelevant. UGA or Auburn would have a blip here or there but that was basically it. Most of these SEC programs only became "elite" in the last 20 or so years. LSU wasn't even the flagship program in its own state until the late 90's.

The mid to late 90's, they started putting the money in their programs. There was a population shift to the South. And they started keeping their local players. There's nothing special about any of these southern schools. The problem for the north is now you have to convince both the kid AND mom/dad/etc why they should make a drive to Columbus or South Bend or Happy Valley when they can find the same locker rooms, weight rooms, trophy rooms at a school 20 miles from home.

While it is funny to watching Michigan butcher simple stuff, I bet that was just the final straw that broke the camel's back. That kid was always de-committing. It's hard to get those SEC kids to the Big 10. I'm always shocked when even the Bucks land the highest touted southern kids. In his letter, he mentioned that his mom is now in the driver's seat of his recruitment. She probably wants him closer to home.

It wouldn't surprise me if the whole commit list got that thank you card. But the name mis-spelled is really bad. It shows a lack of care, a lack of verification in their media.

They can say everything they want about "edge" and Beck/Warinner's seating arrangements, i still believe that starting Cardale at Va Tech put a cap on the 2015 version of the Buckeyes and it prevented them from building up the momentum needed to steamroll into the CFP. The VaTech game was fools gold (Big play or bust plus Brewer getting injured) and after that, it was all herky jerky and turnovers. Should never have been a question as to who was "The Guy" at QB but lemme stop, its old news now....

I hope with all the new faces, they have a passion to improve and basicallt bubble up to the top.

I think the explanation of LSU's penalty comes off as "you had this relationship and after a player initiated status change, a portion of that relation was illegal". Now if its found that the reason the player signed elsewhere is because LSU planned to pull out, that's not right and the school should be punished. And considering how LSU has run dudes off before, I bet that's the case.

The NCAA needs to just set a cap, then schools know exactly how many players they are handcuffed to.

I hear you. But I think that line of thinking is why Tressel didn't have enough horses come bowl time against the elite SEC schools and, at times, OOC (the USC home and homes were eye opening as well). For Urbz, talent takes precedent over everything. We'll see if it's sustainable but for now its working.

I do agree that they should have known earlier that Sibley wasn't rated high enough in their eyes and shouldn't have offered him. It's such a waste of he and his family's time.

Jalin and his camp probably figured that if Braxton (who wasnt as productive as him at the same position and only a short time period) is a 2nd/3rd round pick, how can I go undrafted?

And I know ppl are gonna crush this post but still: Braxton ran 68 plays from scrimmage for 8.8 yards per and 4 TDs. Jalin was 38/13.3/5, respectively. 5 yards more per play! And he was losing touches.

In a way, I don't blame Jalin for leaving. His thinking was probably: "why stay another year, where I now have to share the ball again with Curtis, Weber, Parris, Austin Mack, Torrance Gibson, and JT? They just put a green H-back over me (a decorated one, clearly). I'm out." Is it a risk? Yea. But if he gets on a roster (which I think he will) it was worth it.
