I made the switch to pitcher. I highly suggest it.
Good list. I agree with pretty much everything, but Bolden. He's in year 3 at UM and is seemingly losing ground. It's make or break time for him now.
This is actually backwards. Yes, this is a free site, but what keeps it running is page-views. If the end user experience deteriorates, page-views drop. Meaning less revenue for the site and eventually less content.
Mark Ingram>>>>>>>>Larry Scott.
Absolutely. He has fantastic power and strength. And yes, his OL looks suspect. Still, though, he's a 4.6-4.7 guy. There's a reason Baker has an offer and he doesn't.
That's kind of hilarious actually. I hope whoever Dri wore (Nike I think) makes sure to point out that the fastest guy didn't wear Adidas.
Him chasing down WRs was one of the most impressive displays of athleticism the last few years. It shows that he can keep that speed in pads, which not all of these burners do.
At the end of the day, I think scouts (other than those working for the Raiders) don't value the 40 as highly as we often think. There are guys that you can see are fast by watching film and no one will ever suddenly think they are slow because of the combine.
I love you, Jason.
Look at who he's playing. He also doesn't have the suddenness through the hole you expect. That you can see compared to Baker, Patrick, Harris, or SoSo.
He doesn't have an offer because he's a notch or two below the RBs OSU is in on. He's a good back with size, power, but he's slow. Urban wants power backs, but he wants complete packages ala Hyde. Scott is not going to be a big gainer in college because he lacks another gear.
Urban will not offer an Ohio kid just because services rate them high.
Sucks to hear as he won't get nearly as much time with Herman to develop more. But, injuries must be dealt with, so heal up Brax!
Thank you Earle, you captured exactly what I feel many of us are thinking.
I agree with Fido and KMP10. I loved the old site. It was clean, easy to navigate, and had hit that elusive sweet spot for freshness and function (IMO). The new site definitely looks great, but is not as user friendly. I even prefer the old full site on my iPhone. Agree with the other complaints on the mobile site about slowness.I find myself coming to the site much less and it seems the forums are not as busy as before.
Pretty good list. A few changes:
And I just want to throw out that Bosa will be better than Heyward, IMO.
I'm not saying don't report it, but offering opinions invites arguments. Again, it's your show. Just trying to offer constructive thoughts.
First off, I'm glad Sam exercised his right to express himself and live how he wants.
Secondly, while I don't have any vitriol against Sam or his life, I do agree with the comments that expressed concern about this being placed on 11W. Whether anyone wants it to be or not, this is both a political and religious discussion in our society today and is polarizing in a way that can only cause arguments/bad feelings between users.
Jason, this is your show obviously, but I would recommend that if you want to keep the community as primarily a sports-focused bunch that has mostly amicable discussion, all would benefit from 11W not offering opinions on hot-button topics such as this. I love this community, it's by far my favorite on the web, and I would hate to see us lose members because of topics that are much more divisive than Johnny Football. Just food for thought.
I'm in this camp. Ash didn't come here to not call the D.
A bit surprised Norwell didn't get invited. He's been a consistent All-Conference level guy for a couple years. He seems like the bruising, mean kind of guard every team could use.
His contract is spot on, IMO. Just as Urban's $4 Mil + is spot on.
Sorry, but dranked?
He knows he isn't going NBA. He is also engaged now and has to think career plans. And I think he simply doesn't have a lot of friends on the team any more. I don't see him get pumped up or interact with other players like he used to.
I don't think this team likes playing together. Craft appears more and more to just be over playing college basketball. And I'm seriously missing Jent right now.
Whenever DMX does something random I just feel sort of sorry for the guy.
