Which kid's innocent reputation is being damaged? A message board is going to be full of opinions and speculation. No one is being damaged by this anymore than the "guess the 2-deep" or "guess the breakout players" speculation. If they are innocent we will find out soon enough and if they are guilty we will find out soon enough. Speculation from anonymous posters on a message board does not damage an innocent kid's reputation, especially when their are no actual names.

13.5 starters from the '05 team vs 8.5 from the returning national champs? Ok, Kirk. Sally sharing time with Bell? Uh, no. Gonzalez over Michael Thomas? No. I think I would take Perry over Carpenter. Whoever starts at d-end opposite Bosa will have a better career then Kudla as well.

The problem is he's comparing the '05 team after the season with the '15 team before the season. It's an apples to oranges comparison. It would be fair if you compare the '05 team from the stats from the '04 season, as if '05 hasn't yet happened. If you do that the only starters from the '05 offense are Mangold, Sims, Holmes, Ginn and maybe Barton. On D it would be Pitcock, Hawk, Whitner and Youboty

I would love to see Mississippi State go to ann arbor on November 28th. LOL, they would get trounced. Michigan State would roll them as well, and VT would beat them. So, they would have a minimum of 3 losses playing our schedule.

This is my favorite from that thread:

I love winning as much as anyone... But if I was asked... Would you rather have PSU mentioned in the same category as Teams and Academic institutions like Stanford and Northwestern versus schools like Ohio State , Alabama or Oregon( built for just winning National Titles)... I'd take the former any day. Not a second thought.

State Penn doesn't get mentioned for academics or athletics.

Playing for OSU was always a stretch for Frank. He was a big part of Fickell's 3-star heaven that Bill Greene talked about. Meyer came in and honored his scholarship which the family should be very thankful for, but instead they are bitter because he couldn't earn playing time.

Based on his story, this person has to be from the Central Ohio area, had to have have been offered by Stanford, and had to have been on the team in 2013. So he had to have been in the '12 or '13 class, and his Father and Uncle played for OSU. There is only 1 Ohio person in those 2 classes to have a scholarship offer from Stanford and that is Frank Epitropoulous. I don't believe he is playing football anymore. I think Frank's Dad and Uncle also played for OSU. I really don't think Frank is looking to transfer, and certainly not to play football.

Thanks Rubix. I agree, I'm not sure what there is to downvote. Don't we want 8-9 more recruits?

Comment 22 Jun 2015

My guess is that at least 1 recruit won't be committed to us by signing day, so I believe we are looking at 8 more, possibly 9 more.

Comment 15 Jun 2015

You had different criteria than I had, and your list is the same. I declare these to be the teams considered Blue Bloods moving forward. :-)

Comment 15 Jun 2015

My List:

Ohio State, Alabama, Oklahoma, USC, ND, Michigan, Texas, Nebraska

These teams have consistently won games and championships over the past 100+ years.

Smith decided to play in that worthless gator bowl where we got embarrassed instead of taking the bowl ban that year. In hindsight we traded an NC for a gator bowl loss.

Comment 04 Jun 2015

IMO, people are confusing personal courage with the need for attention. No question it should have been Lauren Hill.

Comment 03 Jun 2015

I agree. There is nothing new that came out that spring. Why force him out at the end of May? Weird timing. Nothing new came out. They had him on record several times saying he acted alone. Once they had that it was goodbye JT.

Comment 18 May 2015

I thought it was a great ending.
