I'm so sick of all this "resume" crap talk. 

Expand the the field to 8, give conf champs a ticket in and 3 at larges. 

The Orange and Fiesta will cover the other two teams. 

No rankings or polls until mid October

I am fully aware the players will find out regardless of what you choose to print, but that doesn't justify the act simply because your "competition" or "competitive outlets" are doing so. That was never in my train of thought. 

Goodness needs no justification. Wrongness always justifies itself. 

If the other sites are doing this then let them. That is their problem. I love 11W because of their usual commitment to the team/coaches/players but a moral line should be drawn as to what is purely factual NEWS vs the stigma of generating reading material over meaningless contemplation.  As Meyer said, let's worry about it later. It certainly doesn't help the team. Every little but adds up. Be different. Don't follow the crowd. This isn't bleacher report.

I have a feeling this will make the team better losing Braxton in the same way our LB play may actually get better without Shazier. The crutch is removed. Meyer said so as well, "if you have a special team, situations like this make those kinds of teams stronger" and Urban is right. 

At at least it happened before the season started to give players and coaches time to prepare. I have a feeling we're gonna see a chip on this teams shoulder that we haven't seen before.

Maybe his grades were enough to break the camels back over Spring? For whatever reason I think Rod would be a good back here, but he just hasn't seen the field. I too think his ball security issues have been fixed. So it seems...

My biggest concerns are as follows, in order:

1) Our back 7

2) Receivers

3) Braxton's health/development

4) Backup QB

5) OL development

Warriner will have them ready. Several comments have been made that state we are in better shape on the OL then we were in '12 and look at what Warriner did with them that year. Our OL will be ready.

I understand with the "chill down the hype" on Samuel and others, but Urban is not a bs'er. He hasn't just made comments about Samuels talent; he's stated directly that Curtis was no.2 on the depth chart at end of spring ball. Which is why I was surprised to not see him with Kwon or Johnnie.

1) Eli Apple quietly takes over field corner and turns in All-B1G honirs

2) EzE and Dontre both acquire 1200 yards

3) Top 10 Defense

4) National Champions

5) All 4 dlineman make either AA or All Conference
