Given Urban's track record, I expect us to pick up another 5* DE by NSD. In all seriousness, good luck to Hall. I hope he finds what he's looking for. I know Urban will.

Unless there's information out there that I've missed, let's not speculate on why he decommitted. It is what it is, and everyone involved will move on and be better than fine.

Kudos to GoBucks544 for a great question. I'd like to see that answered for most recruits going forward.

Also, memo to opposing coaches, you better find something better than OSU's education angle because a quick flyer about "Real Life Wednesdays" pretty much ends that discussion.

It also just occurred to me that Joey Bosa's advice to Nick to commit to OSU was made knowing that Joey was suspended for the VT game. I'm thinking Joey is owning up to his mistake, with devastating consequences for everyone else on our schedule.

Honestly, I'm excited to see Lewis, Holmes, and Hubbard play DE. They all look like they were built to play DE, so I'm happy they get a chance to play. Remember, Marshall only broke out when Wilson got injured. One of those 3 will blow up and be a consistent starter the rest of the year. The biggest thing we lose is Bosa's experience, but there's only one way to get more experience and that's by playing.

Most importantly, the only irreplaceable person in this program is Urban, and he's still patrolling our sideline.

Meh. As long as this isn't a systemic issue, and there's no indications so far that it is, I'm not concerned. Good players, even really good ones, come and go every year in college football. As long as Urban is our coach, we'll be fine at VT and for the foreseeable future. Time for the young pups on the DL and WR rooms to step up. Looking at their recruiting rankings, at least one of them will.

And, god help the rest of the teams on our schedule if this puts a chip on Bosa's shoulder.

Would you mind updating this article to account for Braxton's new position? I feel like your article was assuming the risks involved with throwing a football, but what about taking typical hits to the shoulder? Or landing on the shoulder like Mariota in the NC game? I imagine the labrum is still holding the shoulder together in those instances, so what is Braxton's risk to further shoulder injury?

Done. This is awesome.

Welp, I won't be able to check this site for the rest of the day ...BOOOMMMM

Lol, I love Meyer, but if he got into a physical altercation with Vrabel, he wouldn't have been able to be seen in public for a few weeks. 

Comment 09 Jul 2015

I don't think his leverage is tied to his salary. Instead, it's tied to him being the best player in the planet who can turn any team into a title contender.

Comment 09 Jul 2015

More than that, isn't his salary tiny in comparison to what he makes in endorsements and other off-the court ventures? What's an extra 5 million in salary when you're the face of Nike?

Comment 09 Jul 2015

I'm going to take it as a good sign. Birm has made "mistakes" where the text of the article makes it clear that it was written days before the commitment went public. So unless Birm does that for everyone (which would be hilarious) ... just saying. 

But not to take anything away from Davis, BOOOOOOMMMMM

I wish I took a year after college before starting law school. 3 years removed from law school, I'm working all the time at a job where taking a week vacation includes bringing my work laptop. I should have spent a year pissing around and enjoying youth (not that I'm old, but it feels so adult to hold a full time job like this). 

Comment 09 Jul 2015

Birm mentioned in a previous Hurry Up that no one on the staff is assigned to recruit CA. I'm guessing CA will be a case-by-case basis where the player needs to show interest before we start to recruit heavily.
