Yea, he had Lee, Braxton, and Apple going 3 straight picks, with Spence and Bell a few picks later, and Bosa, Elliot, and Decker preceding them. That would be unreal.
Probably nothing crazy. Wife is back in school to be a nurse, and she's crazy busy with school work, and only working part time, so we aren't going to spend money on needless items. I'll probably make a nice dinner, thinking filet and crab cake.
The wife and I have started drawing our own. A helluva lot of fun, especially because neither one of are great artists.
Rivals usually does this, but I can't remember how detailed they get.
Perfectly said SM.
Maybe even make them sit at a different table in the cafeteria. We say these things in jest, but at this point, would anyone really be shocked if this stuff happened?
The larger point in my mind, is just the big picture that Urban sees now since returning to coaching after UF. Instead of constantly contacting recruits during church, after NCs, and during family events, everyone needs to have a life outside of CFB, including recruits. Hopefully, the NCAA listens again.
Yep-I actually grate some fresh parm or romano and mix it right in with the meatballs.
Yep-I use it when making burgers also. I hate when burgers fall apart on the grill.
HAahaha. I can see it now. A coach stops getting paychecks and the locks are changed on his office and Jimmy just stops talking to him.
I've only had 1 comment ever edited/deleted by a MOD. It was early in my tenure, and ventured slightly down the political path (actually, I think Jason got me). I feel left out.
Not to mention, I don't know what kind of job security they have. Once their well of prospects that they have direct connections to dries up, and they show that they should be in HS not FBS, I'd imagine Jimmy Boy will find the next HS coach with ties to a couple prospects.
There's obviously a different level of hatred, but TUN fans should take a lesson from HokiePro and BamaMike. Lots of good back and forth, with thoughtful comments while still being loyal to their team.
I understand that view point as well, because it also makes sense. I think the higher end "can't miss" guys will be pressed for a commit early. The problem is if they don't then the staff has to have options B, C, and D ready. They can't wait until NSD for all of their answers and risk missing on more than they hit on. Exciting to say the least.
I think it'll be interesting to see how fast this class shapes up. With the limited #s, I would think the staff would be pressing hard for early commits. They can point to Sam Bruce as what could happen if they wait, especially in '17 So much talent and only limited spaces.
As others have already said, I think he's solid. Maybe Ferentz leaving would shake things up, but who am I kidding, Kirk rolls out of bed to an overpaid contract and B1G COY awards, who'd give that up?
TBH, 300+ pound DTs don't fit what LJ is looking for usually. There are athletic freaks who are exceptions, but he wants guys who are more athletic inside, with his 1 Tech maxing out around 290-295.
Sounds great. Speaking of Pasta Sauce, Oyster was supposed to supply us with his recipe.
Let's not speculate. I think there's a good chance the staff and the individual players involved already know. Just a matter of it playing out publicly.
I think it was brought up before in a forum topic but no they can't. Could you imagine how many Ice Dancing and Fencing Schollies would be given out if the football team could use those in addition to the 85?
Urban and LJ don't give out charity schollies. I wouldn't worry if those guys I listed were 3*s or not. You've got one of the best HCs the game has ever seen along with one of the best DL coaches in the game. They've got bodies. Now it's time to earn their paychecks.
This one wasn't that big of a secret. Timing probably not the best, but Urban spoke about the injury late in the year, about the same time when they started actively looking for a 2nd LB in this class to pair with Borland. Jones isn't a Buckeye without this happening before hand.
We could all speculate, but I'm sure the staff already knows, as do the individual players.
Not like we haven't heard this before, maybe not to this magnitude in terms of true freshman, but Urbans desire to get the young guys on the field has always been there. I think a lot of us thought we'd see more of last years class on the field in blowouts, but those were few and far between.
The other side of this comment, is the subtle jab at the current roster to get them motivated through the rest of the winter and spring, so they know they aren't guaranteed anything.
