Kiper, Jr. is the progenitor of this "cottage industry" he makes a great living at it and that's great for him, but no one in the NFL or College takes him McShay or any of these other knobs seriously. What the hell is a 'Draft guru? anyway? If any of them had a shred of credibility an NFL Owner would be paying them millions. Kiper, Jr. and the rest are simply fans with too much time on their hands and the analysis they provide carries no more weight than any group of guys sitting around a Barbershop or a BDubs discussing sports. Real NFL Scouts and Personnel people have talked to UFM and told him where his players are likely to go and to whom. 

NFL teams don't draft for fans, they draft players that they believe fit their scheme. Teams that change coaching staffs frequently have bad drafts and bad teams because they've previously drafted players for a scheme they don't use anymore. A prime example is Josh Norman, in a man scheme he's not a lock-down guy so much, is he? It's silly season in the NFL and Kiper, Jr. and guys of his ilk will keep spewing garbage as long as fans keep listening and shelling out their hard-earned dollars for those bullshit Draft Reports....

Isn't it great that for once none of the questions involve who's going to play defensive tackle or the D-Line rotation. For you recruitniks, forget about Marvin Wilson, he's not coming to C-Bus!!! Players at that position from his part of the world go to SEC schools, almost exclusively and while he'll toy with your emotions until NLOI Day and Birm and the rest of the recruiting guys will speculate for days on end about what the tea leaves say or something they hear from a friend of his HS Coach or his cousin's, brother's, nephew's girlfriend's hairdresser who lives next door to his next-door neighbor, he's going to LSU, book it....

You stole my thunder BR, but I agree 100%. I don't really follow recruiting until NLOI Day, but this fantasy of Marvin Wilson has gone far enough. He's all-LSU, all the time, get used to it, I don't have any inside dope and I don't have any sources in Houston just that players from that part of the country always seem to wind up at LSU. Grown and Sexy coming back will more than make up for it though, he was on the sideline for the Fiesta Bowl and he and Mickey Marotti have obviously become better acquainted since the injury, he is ripped....

He's only one play away from a career-ending injury and players like him only have so many plays at the NFL level. He has nothing left to prove at tOSU or the college-level. The Buckeyes will be fine if he leaves, that's what 5 years of Top 5 recruiting classes does for a program. Go now and get that money, same for Marshon, J.T.  and the rest....

Comment 29 Dec 2016

So now Buckeye fans are praising Paul Finebaum? The SEC honk who regularly trashed the B1G in general and the Buckeyes in particular, just 3 years ago... I guess the old adage is apropos; "The enemy of my enemy is my friend."

Comment 23 Dec 2016

In truth she got tested Dec. 5th, her last fight was Sep. 24th in which she knocked out Lina Lansberg in Brazil. The "he said, she said," between the Cyborg Camp and Dana White is legendary in the UFC. He says he offered her the first fight in the newly created women's 145 lbs weight division and she turned it down three times. She says he offered her the fight once and she turned it down due to not being fully recovered from the weight cut to 140 lbs. The truth probably lies somewhere in between, but she knew a test was coming she's been tested regularly since 2011 and the Stanazolone mess and OOC tests are the norm for her, she can't just avoid being tested she's required to submit to OOC testing. So I call bullshit on this.....

Comment 21 Dec 2016

For a guy who claimed he doesn't like to hire friends, UFM's last two hires have been a guy he's known for over 25 years and the best man at his wedding. Davis was a disaster in Philly, but they haven't been any better since he left so maybe it wasn't all on him. It's not a hire I'm excited about, but they can't all be HR's I guess....

Comment 21 Dec 2016

In case no one has said this in this thread, fuck Brian Hartline and Alex Boone, two grown men still on some shit that happened in college. If Hartline had the talent he'd still be in the NFL catching balls, instead of participating in Bowl practice in C-Bus. He took advantage of limited ability and one decent  NFL season to cash in on an F/A contract and none of his ex-teammates said he wasn't deserving. TP has no concerns, he'll be catching balls from Tom Brady next season....

Until Kevin McGuff pays as much attention to the defensive end of the floor as he does to recruiting, this will always be the result. It wasn't that Connecticut is more talented, it's just that they have a commitment to the defensive end, as evidenced by the 2nd half defense on Kelsey Mitchell. How in the world does a team consistently lose the best 3-point shooter in America on a consistent basis defensively? KLS is a great player, but you have to have someone close to her at all times. I'm really disappointed, I hoped for better.....

Comment 18 Dec 2016

We heard the same things about Terry McLaurin and Parris Campbell when they signed NLOI, how's that working out? You have to have a QB capable of throwing them the ball on a consistent basis, maybe that person is at tOSU but right now it isn't J.T. Barrett. The Buckeyes have a lot of WR talent, but it's going to waste.

Comment 14 Dec 2016

Recruiting is all about young men seeking attention, some handle it better than others. I don't follow recruiting anymore and I haven't since the whole Stefan Diggs debacle. As far as my comment about this site and it's response to the recruitment of Torrance Gibson, archives are a wonderful thing, avail yourself of them they're easily accessible. My point was made in my comment....

Comment 14 Dec 2016

Why is the default assumption that he's leaving? He hasn't said that to anyone. The Fall semester ends today and he can apply for reinstatement if he so chooses. Why is a young man exploring all of his options perceived to be negative. Gibson's story is part of the tOSU Football story and to be dismissive of it is wrong. I don't recall anyone being so dismissive during his recruitment when everyone on this site was singing his praises and kissing his ass, worried that he wouldn't sign on NLOI Day. If he leaves we'll wish him the best, if he stays we'll cheer for him, like all the rest but in the meantime let's not be judgmental....

Comment 11 Dec 2016

I'm not a fan of Peppers, but this whole thing is bullshit. If you're going to disparage a young man in the national media, at least have the balls to put your name on it. I'm always leery of anonymous sources. If it's the writer's opinion then say that, if you can't print the source then don't print the opinion. This is this young man's life and livelihood we're casually discussing. Fans being fans is something completely different, we rip the other team players and they rip ours, but this to me is beyond the pale whether I agree with expressed opinion or not.
