He wasn't that good in college. Got by on size and athleticism. Didn't seem like he learned a single thing about playing OT in his time at OSU.
Him behind that line... I don't think it could have worked out better for him.
Basically my thoughts exactly, word for word. When the pick went in, I was thinking Doctson.
It's quite a bit different actually. His offer hasn't gone anywhere, the timing of his enrollment has changed.
Not using that to knock Zeke, more to point out the folly of the Browns drafting a RB that high.
WTH is wrong with people.
Prayers for his family.
You know who else was considered the best all-around player in his draft? Trent Richardson
Bulls win in either rules era. If then, the Warriors wouldn't be able to handle the physicality. Today, no one on the Warriors is stopping Jordan from scoring 50 without breaking a sweat. The real match ups are on the defensive side for each team. The Bulls would likely put Pippen on Curry and I don't see that ending well for Curry. He'll still get points, but not easily. And not 30 per. Jordan on Thompson and ditto. Rodman on Green and being one of the best defenders ever, Green isn't going off. Now on the flip side, who is Thompson guarding? Probably Pippen...ha. Who is Curry guarding? They'll throw Iguadala at Jordan and he's a fine defender, but okay. Longley is serviceable against the Warriors bigs... he'd just be tasked with making them work. Harper is a good defender and would chip in points here and there. He'll spell Jordan on Thompson or Pippen on Curry. The rest of the time he'll be on Barnes. I'll say Bulls in 5 with the Warriors getting warn down quickly and Jordan averaging 40+
Honestly, I wouldn't call it a "miss". It's more disappointing for him than the team, IMO. As a staff, you never turn down that caliber of athlete. You take them and find somewhere to plug them in. Some make it, some don't. It's not like at QB where if you have two years in a row without an impact guy, you're really hurt. That's why they took Burrow the same year. Athletes like Gibson are luxury picks.
Honestly, I don't see any way Thad turns this completely around. His health has changed the type of coach he is. And just imagine how it hampers him with getting out to recruit. I'd love to see him move to the administration side and we bring in a young, hot name.
It was never going to work in Cleveland like it did in Miami. Riley was already mentioned, but Wade was a big difference. Wade already had a ring and it was he who got James and Bosh to come to him. Lebron couldn't push Wade and Riley around and it was good for him. Then, when he came back to Cleveland, he should've kept Wiggins instead of Love. Wiggins was a super athletic, young player who was a good defender in college. Lebron could've molded him to be his Pippen.
Sorry, but no. Boldin has size and hands that Jalin can't even dream of. He's 6'1", 220. Jalin has also struggled with catching/securing the ball a lot.
Agreed, nothing wrong with it at all. The gap between 25 and 5 is basically a crap shoot. But IMO he is the best WR I've seen film on. I think the comment in the article is in the same frame of mind.
Grimes is the best WR in the country. Haven't seen a better one yet.
NAVYBUCKEYE91, I don't disagree with you at all, I don't equate them 1:1 either. But I also don't equate OSU's championships from that time period to the more recent one or to Bama's this year. Most OSU fans I know are unwilling to do that and I always find it interesting when they turn that around to other teams when it suits them.
So are OSU's previous titles equal to the 2014 title?
If anything, I'd say the OSU championships pre-2002 are harder to justify than the Browns' as they were voted on by a group of writers while the Browns played the Steelers, Eagles, Giants, Cardinals, 49ers, Colts, and Redskins. Are you really saying that the Browns championships during the 50's and 60's won in playoffs against other NFL teams are less legit than OSU's championships during the 50's and 60's when they played 10 games max between the Big 10 and a bowl game and then put it to a vote of sportswriters who relied on newspapers for their news?
Do you discount the Buckeyes' championships before the 2002 title?
I don't mind Michigan fans posting here. Unless they're belligerent about it, I'm all for the discussion and occasional slight trash talk. It's a rivalry, after all.
Built a lot like Josh Perry was in High School.
I think you're looking at it wrong. Meyer only cares about what can help the program. If he does choose one player over another, it's because he plays that kid can better help the team win. He would not turn down a kid he viewed as a better player.
