The Squirrel Master knows what he is talking about. Agreed. Not about money (if this is totally false)
Wow! Shocking this entire development.
I didn't think Conley had an OSU tattoo on his forearm.
Tate wears lifts
Wow! This is great information. I see we have only 1 official 5 star. Three of our other commits must be very close.
It is not conference pride for me. I moved a couple of decades ago to the West coast. It is more of mid west pride. Yes, I was pissed when Wisky lost to Florida in this year's tournament. I do root for the conference, but more from a geographical affection standpoint
What did you see? I never heard of this incident.
cause KY is the new Ole Miss
So you are saying, "he is a good loser"
How odd to pick FSU. hmmm. That is a culture I cannot get behind.
Get well soon Malik. Really wanted to hear his name called in the top 10 with Lattimore
Baylor being Baylor
No scruples, no accountability
Love Brent, A good dude. Happy retirement to him
Lots of upvotes on this one, but not as many as deserved. Pure Gold, you should be a writer
Thanks, all good points. To me it seemed like Samuel looked very good as a WR this year. Lots of catches. But I am sure not much skill training or at least not nearly as much as the true WR. So the fact that he excelled as did Christian Kirk as a freshmen leads me to speculate it is not as much teachable skill as athleticism.
Just shows Coach Smith can teach
If they played the position before in HS, how hard is it to actually create some separation? Serious question. Smith is not training them to be brain surgeons. I doubt it all that difficult to do if you can actually do it
Don't know the method you are using, assuming it is consistent over time, but no way does Michigan have a better class then ours. What that means to me, is your methodology is faulty. Like developing a new fangled calculator that does not add 2+2 correctly.
For the record, I am high on the guy. Blowing up against the best of the best means a whole lot more than playing inferior competition in HS
If Urbs can get this to work, I think his career will have greater longevity, less chance of burn out. I know what he was trying to do the past few years and lets give some tremendous credit with his hires on the defense. Fantastic! He came across as being too nice or naieve on the offensive side. Too willing to promote from within. That is great as long as the internal candidate is as good as the guy you could pull in the the outside. Clearly that was not the case. In this instance, Urbs underperformed what a great leader/CEO would do
Great write up. I think what many, many people fail to realize is just because a coach has experience and put in the time, does not make them an effective coordinator. Ask yourself in your companies how many truly elite employees you know. And by elite I'm talking not about doing a good job, but razor sharp, high intelliect, great leader. There is not many of those. Most large companies have several. Just because Urbs promotes a coach does not mean that guy was elite. I would reckon in all of CFB there may be a couple dozen at most of the guys I am talking about. At OSU, we deserve one of these guys. I just get the feeling that in the play booth, these guys just didn't have the apptitude to make creative calls or even logical ones. Again, think of a chess grandmaster.
These guys were playing checkers and not very well.
