I really wish they would make a rule where you can't contact recruits until they are 16. I also would like an option of being able to sign early as long as there is an opt out due to coaching changes. I think those two rules would cut down on some of the shenanigans that happens to players. It would mean a team offering commitment was serious and wouldn't pull a Harbough later in the recruiting process.
WIsky will have to run the ball well, eat up clock and have no turnovers to have a chance. Last year their D-Line wore down against LSU so I can't imagine them doing much better with a better version of the same team. Of course their QB play last year was average at best so if he can play competent that will help extend drives.
Tool is my favorite band. APC is up there as well.
The wife and I were there too. That comeback was amazing however we wasted a ton of opportunities with no pass possessions.
You would think IF we were going to expand further it would be done before the TV deal to get that sweet TV money higher.
I can say who I wouldn't want to:
The entire SEC
Michigan/Penn St/Notre Dame
Afraid of competition
I think we go after VIrginia or one of the Carolina(not Duke or Wake Forest) schools to keep heading down the Atlantic. There really aren't many options heading to the Midwest that fit the whole AAU/connecting state route. On a side note, I hope we never take ND and they are stuck in a terrible spot trying to find a conference.
Personally I think its odd to wear skinny jeans and having a buldge while hanging out with kids...
I can only imagine if a guy decided to wear something revealing half his junk around a bunch of 13 year olds. I am sure it would go over great.
Honestly, I wish ESPN listened to the advice of this thread.
I wish ESPN would watch video of themselves in the 90's and return to what made them popular to begin with. Sports, fun, excitement. Now they think they are the most serious business ever and they have important crap to say and everyone needs to listen. Between that and the fake generated outrage "embrace debate" BS. Sometimes people want to watch sports to escape the seriousness of the rest of the life. We don't want a freaking debate about every little thing.
Broussard and Windhorst could predict the sun was going to rise tomorrow and I wouldn't believe them.
The funny thing is when this thread came up last week, the next day or two we found out two VT players got in trouble. Maybe the source was Chris Broussard and got his teams mixed up.
As the others have said, it would take almost every other top team having 2 losses for this to be possible. Also, if this occured with another conference I would be pissed. I think its in the CFP best interest to have 4 teams from 4 different regions. Gets the most amount of people invested emotionally and watching.
Ohio high school football, where the last person in town turns the light off on the way to the away game.
12W is where we put our ichigan coverage
Time to set up a Kickstarter for his Dads church.
Its even worse when you consider our 5th pitcher was a hot mess until they brought the new kid up. Now they have 5 starters that are all above average.
I vote for Dan Gilbert to buy the Indians and he can change the name to the Cleveland Mortgages for all I care.
Yea its possible but at the same time Craig Krenzel wasn't going to get drafted in the first few rounds either. Plus you are talking about 1 player over the course of how many years? Its possible but I can understand a student feeling pulled in several directions and feeling that they can't give 100% to both. Like I said, he probably missed some things or had to cut some stuff short, Urban said he needed to focus more/put more time in, and since we are only hearing one side it gets turned from"Focus more on football" to "Focus less on Med School".
I bet you would have punched her if you didn't watch the View and learn not to.
Most of these seem reasonable. I can't imagine doing pre med and playing high end D1 football at the same time. I can see how a coach telling someone he needs to focus more gets turned into choosing football over academics if you are in a pissy mood. I can also see two alpha male coaches going at it. With that said, I highly doubt super PSU fan is best friends with half of the important people around Columbus(and Florida).
Also, Michigan and PSU can screw themselves. We kick their ass on the field and in the classroom.
You forgot alluding to but not outright saying;questionable off field behavior, or possible grade issues.
Is he from Texas? If not, Art Briles is going to be pissed.
To be honest, I have no problem with the eye test being a part of the equation. Stats, especially in an uneven field like College Football don't always tell an accurate story. This isn't the NFL where most teams run the same pace, similar sets etc.You could have two teams, one playing Oregon, and the other playing Georgia Tech. Both good teams. If you give up 25 to Oregon its a pretty good day. GT runs a completely different style. Giving up 25 to them is not the same thing. You'll also get more plays ran during the Oregon game. My point is, we want people to look and use their brains vs relying strictly on what a number tells you.
