IMO everyone is taking the wrong bet. Bet the over. When was the last time Ohio State and their opponent were under 50? That's right week two of 2013 when they scored 49 total with San Diego State.
Miami, Florida, Florida State are a long way from PA, NJ, NY, and Maryland. There is a significant population in the Northeast. I didn't think I needed to qualify my comment because PSU is nowhere close to Florida. Recruits who want to stay relatively close to home will consider PSU over Rutgers, Maryland, Virginia, etc
People like predictions, they just don't like being told the "mark it down" hubris.
That is definitely a straw man argument there. Present the weakest case and then destroy it. He is also selling the best night game atmosphere in the nation. PSU is the only team near the east coast to have won a national title in the last 30 years. PA plays good high school football, and there are a lot of players who dream about playing in Happy Valley. Urban lost Gesicki to PSU and will lose Ferns most likely to PSU. Just because you don't see it doesn't mean it doesn't exist.
6. I would guess you viewed it a half dozen times.
Maybe they thought they were a first round prospect and the found out they had a fifth round grade.
The player has to be "put up" for stripe removal by their mentor who is an upperclassman. In that sense, they could keep there freshman striped up until next year. Eli Apple had his stripe removed in the spring of his freshman season, because his mentor wouldn't allow him to come up.
I get what you are saying Navy, but I just get tired of people recycling the same old narrative. If enough people say it it becomes true. Cardale was money on third down. He made big time throws, yet everyone says that JT is the better passer. On third down that is not true, which is one reason that the offense stalled the entire second half at Penn State until they ran the Zone read the entire overtime. I understand that the team is different at the end of the year than the beginning, but Cardale is a really good player. He passes the ball well, and he keeps the offense moving, by passing and running on third down.
No actually "on the bubble" is being kind to him. With the bodies stacked up at H (Brax, Marshall, Wilson, Samuel) Would you take all four of them off the field so you could put a second TE in the game? He will have to be a playmaker extraordinaire to get snaps over all four of the previously mentioned guys or he will need to steal snaps from Vannett. Maybe goal line snaps if he can block a bit. I think "bubble" is very accurate for Baugh.
I am so glad they have Harbaugh. I can't imagine a better coach at TTUN. He is odd but he will win enough to stay for a while and there will be great stories of him doing crazy things.
Or Dontre Wilson. He and Lee were the Urban media darling of the year in fall of '14 and '15 respectively.
The services are trying to predict the thirty two first round selections each year. This is why there are no five star kickers.
5*= 1st rnd
3*= the rest of the draft although some services go out to a thousand
The medical term is gynecomastia.
if it makes you feel so bad, let it die. Don't repost that weird mix between ice cream and manure.
Now that it is official anyone throwing away their pitchforks and saying sorry?
I love that he used the exclamation point as the national title trophy!
I think Urb tries to take one of every position, 11 offense and 11 defense. Then he gets three gravy guys that are too good to pass up. The reason LBs are at one this year is because they took 4 last year. Since they took a bunch and they really only play 2 LBs at times you see them cut back. Similar situation with Oline. In this year's class they will take two safeties and two corners. Same next year unless a gravy guy is in the defensive backfield.
They are doing that by moving Jalin to wide receiver. If you wanted to flop Jalin and xBrax you could do that on a play by play basis, so that Jalin could get a few carries. You don't add an h and remove a z, instead you move an h to a z position.
Thanks for pointing that out. I didn't know. What year?
I love your enthusiasm, however, I doubt this will be the number one rated class. It may be the best class in the nation but it won't be ranked that way. Even with Jackson, Pryts, Hamlin, Victor, Rene, and a Super star like Gary or Little, that still only gets OSU to around 300pts. Winners of "#1 rated class" have been 311, 319, 319, 310 for the past four years. Last year 300 points would have been third.
I'm ok with this being the number non-one rated class because I believe that brings more motivation to urbs toolbox of motivational tricks. I also think there are some biases in the rankings metrics, and those who are not as highly rated will turn out to be better players than some at other schools. i.e defensive backs this year.
There is a difference between the stopwatch and the laser. Usually people say it is .1 difference between the two.
The average DE heading to the NFL this past year weighed 267.66lbs and ran a 4.83 the DTs weighed 306.2lbs and ran a 5.11. These are averages. Cooper will likely add 15 lbs and run an average DE time in the low 4.8s I bet his 10yard split will be above average though. 4.7 at 315 is so far into outlier territory that you likely would have been drafted without much game tape at all. This past year at the combine only two guys over 300lbs broke 5.0 in the 40. Leonard Williams at 302 ran a 4.97 and Derrick Lott ran a 4.99 at 314. These are the freakishly athletic of all the draftable guys this year.
I like your enthusiasm but "at least once a game" will never happen. He would have 15 to 20 punt returns for TDs in a single season. One every 4 games would be considered wildly successful. One every 3 games would be historic. Teddy Ginn only had 6 his entire time at OSU he had 64 punt returns. He averaged roughly one TD every 10 returns, which doesn't include fair catches. He had 25 returns and 24 returns in his Jr. and Sr. Seasons meaning he really only got 2 opportunites per game.
No sample data. The pic above says that the athletes can go to nikefootball dot com and get a comparison by class and by position. That would really be interesting. I would be a lot like mockdraftable dot com. I tried it but I couldn't find the data. Maybe they don't have it up yet, or maybe I don't have access to it b/c I'm not a high school student.
Ramzy finally figured out why Byars didn't win. He was born too early. You can not defy the law of 20.
