Birm (or anyone)- how tall is too tall for an offensive lineman? At some point you lose leverage; I feel you rarely see above 6-7 olineman, and he's 6-9 and still growing? He seems like a great athlete though.
Schembechler was the guy who started that quote I think. Since then everyone other then RichRod has had Michigan ties for some reason.
It sucks that he got sick, b/c that was his shot. I'll always love Troy Smith, but I'm glad the Browns have Manziel (although I think I would have picked Bridgewater)
Wiggins, or trade down for embiid ( I've heard w/ philly for 3,10 and young)
I realize this is an opinion piece, and the purpose of it is to drive conversation, but its never going to happen, for reasons you mentioned in the article. Money. Ohio state football makes millions. Ohio state research makes billions. If we leave the big ten, we leave the CIC. And that is where the real money is.
Miles is too old. LSU will be his last job. They'll throw everything at Harbaugh, but probably fail again, before turning to someone else. Maybe Narduzzi? Not sure if they'll be over their michigan man thing yet.
This England-Italy game has been pretty good so far
Krenzel was the perfect tresselball QB. Smart, Limited mistakes, made plays when he needed too, was just athletic enough to get the job done. That gameplan against Miami was fantastic; and it was possible b/c he could run well enough to catch their defense off guard. I'd take Troy Smith over him, but not TP, and I won't compare Braxton to him b/c the offenses are so different.
We're gonna get hammered lol. But I love the world cup, so much fun
I like where your head is at, but let the kid be a highschooler. You should get to enjoy your senior season IMO.
What happened between Notre Dame and Cornell? I know his high school is a pipeline, and I thought he had them top on his list at one point. Now they're not even under consideration? I'm not complaining, just curious lol.
I cant see him having a better record then 9-3. They had one of the worst o-line's in football last year, w/ 2 drafted tackles. Nuss will be an improvement, but at best they're hoping for mediocre, and I don't think that will get it done on the road at OSU, MSU, and ND. If they drop another one somewhere/look terrible in most of their games, and Hoke loses to all three rivals, there's no way he can stay.
Ones named Hakeem do. And That's who Embiid is compared to.
Embiid if his back checks out. Otherwise Wiggins. Trade everything except kyrie and the number 1 pick for Love if he signs an extension.
In all honesty though, Donovan has been terrible for the past year or so. His real world class skill was his speed/fitness, and he's getting older. I still thought he'd make it, just not start.
As a browns fan, I would love to go 8-8. That is all.
Anyone have the link for the dirty Lewan plays video that made the rounds around here last season? A buddy of mine is titans fan, and was interested in it.
I'm glad LeBron spent seven seasons in Cleveland. With that being said, I'm not playing his games again this offseason. If he comes back to Cleveland, great, if he doesn't, also great. We don't care nearly as much as ESPN thinks we do.
Give me manziel over bortles any day.
I have UM in the elite 8 in my bracket, (albeit against Duke lol) so I'm rooting for Michigan. I have no problem picking march madness rooting interests.
I'm of the opinion the MSU should be the favorite next year in the big ten. Our offense loses as much as their defense does. And quite frankly MSU's offense is better then our defense next year on paper. With the game being on the road next year, I don't see us scraping out a win. Hopefully I'm wrong.
Awesome! I love this series Vico! Great work as always!
Dudes. The guy was raw, got injured over the summer, and was a true freshman who didn't enroll early. He had incredible measurables, but his tape was mostly him being more athletic then high school players, not making reads and being able to succeed as a D1 linebacker. If he was redshirted, it was for a reason. He has a high upside, but other then a crazy Sparq score (which technically has nothing to do with a guys ability to play football) why was he supposed to be great? He certainly has the ability to get to that level (you can't teach athleticism you know), but I liked Trey Johnson better, and IMO we should be way more excited about Raekwon, who's got the measurables and the seasoning to play Linebacker right away.
I'll be honest, I'm not sure I want a guy who's coming here as a "compromise" no matter how talented he is. Its one thing to make sure of your decision, but if you're not on board, your gonna be gone sooner or later under Urban.
