Having seen nothing happen to Ole Miss or Alabama with all of the evidence that shows they pay their recruits/players makes me completely unsurprised by the NCAA's unwillingness to punish them this time around. The evidence includes pictures of recruits and players holding thousands of dollars in cash. Odd isn't it, that you dont see those types of pictures at other programs, just those that everyone knows pays their players.

If smart, they throw a ton of money at Tom Herman before he bolts Houston for Texas next year. 

Comment 17 May 2016

have to give it to MSU, they are OSU's kryptonite when it comes to mutual recruits. They seem to land more than they lose to us and Meyer has yet to really shut the door on Dantonio, which may cause some major problems in MSU/OSU match ups down the line. Our class is #1 and full of talent but to see top tier talent spurn OSU for MSU is not something I have enjoyed.

Why is this dude newsworthy anymore? His person life problems are really his business and his public antics are nothing but another representation of how this generation (my generation kind of) has further popularised an idea that to get rich, be stupid.

Pedro Martinez and Randy Johnson, but in this new generation of pitchers: Cant go wrong with Kershaw or Syndergaard right now. Yet, Arriteta may be the best pitcher in baseball this season (and the 2nd half of last year). As a staff, I think the Mets starters this year can and will be better than the Braves staff of the early-to-mid 90s with Glavine, Maddux, and Smoltz.

I dont think its only got me to the forum bit and its all VIP only. 

Comment 09 May 2016

I think it can be viewed as disrespectful but I dont think its something to get overly upset about. Its not a good look and its not something I would support, but at the same time his focus is 100% on winning a basketball game and so I can see why he may have had a lapse in judgement. I dont think Wade deliberately aimed to disrespect Canadians, just think he wanted to get more prep in for the game and figured the minute or so during the anthem was enough time to do it. Or, maybe he just hates Canada.

Its rather rare to see an UDFA make a teams roster. Getting drafted means that team wanted to spend one of only a few opportunities they have to choose who they want on you, which at least theoretically means you have a much greater chance to make the team. Often the UDFAs are brought in to make sure the team didn't miss anything and to give the UDFA a look at a position on the practice squad, if anything. Id much rather get drafted because not only do you get a little bit more money for signing, the teams have effectively said that you are a guy they would like to have on their roster in the future. I mean no matter if you are a 1st rounder or UDFA, you still have to make the team, but being drafted in the 6th/7th round gives you a leg up on UDFAs, at least in theory.

Powell and Marshall undrafted? I figured Powell would get picked late and I still think Marshall doesnt and then the big question: why did he leave early?

Comment 22 Apr 2016

Was predicted a while ago. His commitment was pretty much only for show. Seems Bama has been the favorite to land him for a long time now and I expect UF to also make a play before he signs his LOI; not going to be a buckeye and thats cool, plenty of great options out there. 

Comment 22 Apr 2016

Well, it has to be about a school that is competing with OSU for WRs so Im gonna guess, since its not Michigan, its Michigan State. Im not sure that MSU would participate in negative recruiting in such a way that would provoke Smith's response but the 2017 WR group has a number of them that are considering both OSU and MSU. Although, Penn State is the king of negative recruiting so it may be them more so than MSU, but Ill go with MSU. 

Comment 19 Apr 2016

You didn't do this at all, but just in general, I'm not a fan of fans trying to get some sort of inside scoop by twitter-stalking recruits in addition to being against tweeting recruits (even positive tweets to them). Kind of creepy. 

Comment 14 Apr 2016

Not sure this does much for any OSU draft prospects but it definitely has a chance to spice things up for the Browns. IMO, the Browns shouldn't go for a QB at #2, the crop is pretty bad I think. Go after Tunsil and start building the trenches.
