Excited for Chase to get his shot this year! This group is going to be special, no doubt.
The fact that he's a fifth year senior really got me thinking, though. Not to put the cart before the horse, but what's the starting line going to look like in 2016?
We mostly rely on carrier pigeon still, but in spotty locations it's available now.
I get where you're going with this, but I want something to play on my local am radio channels for my 30 minute commute from work to home.
Any chance you'll be on the radio in Wichita, KS anytime soon?? You'd be a hell of a lot more entertaining than any of the sports radio shows out here. I can't even tell you how exciting it is tuning in to 'Hawk Talk and hearing all about the many questions surrounding the KU football program. You can't even pretend to enjoy discussing Jayhawk football. You just can't.
For a while now I've felt that Victor is the must get in this class among the wide receiver group. I went back and watched his junior year highlights today and my feelings were definitely confirmed. Kid is a complete player at the receiver position. His ability to go up and get it is fantastic (even pulling it out of the defenders hands), he has excellent field presence and awareness, and he included clips of his blocking in his highlights (watch the 1:03 mark in his video). I love seeing that. So often the tape is just of a player being more athletic than everyone else on the field and they look unstoppable, and while that is great, i don't think it's always very indicative of how their skill will translate to the next level. Victor's tape, in my opinion, does more to show his football skill than a vast majority of the skill position players out there.
For real. I've been saying that for quite a while as well!
This has been the big news story out here, and rightfully so. It's such a sad situation to take place at an otherwise great sports event that brings in people from all over the nation and even internationally. If you're the praying type, in addition to the Carlile family, the player who hit Kaiser could use them now, too. I can't imagine what he must be going through as a college-age young man who has to shoulder that burden for the rest of his life. Very very sad day here in Wichita.
Thanks for starting my weekend out right, Birm!
I'm a huge Reds fan and, while I hated losing Cueto, I loved the trade with Kansas City. Cueto was my favorite pitcher in a very long time - maybe ever. But I fully understand that there was almost no chance Cueto would return after the season. The deal you should be mad about is the one that paid Homer Bailey instead of Johnny Beisbol. Or the $225 million dollar Joey Votto signing. The three pitchers they got from the Royals are all highly regarded left handed pitchers who throw mid-to-high 90s. Brandon Finnegan is going to be a stud. This team needs young, controlled pitching help and that's what they've targeted and received. And as Buckfutter mentioned above, if they could get Shipley and two other prospects rated in the DBacks top 10, thats a deal they should jump all over. Just my opinion, of course.
In all fairness, Ahmir Mitchell is a top 100 prospect as well and it's been noted many times that his offer is not commitable. I also doubt that is the issue here with Ford, but it just shows that it's a new day in Ohio State recruiting that they may have to pass on guys in the top 100 going forward.
I wondered if something would come up about Kyle Davis being Pryor's teammate at Archer. That high school team, by the way, is stacked! If Corley and NCM don't go the Buckeye way, I'd be thrilled to see Davis get more attention. He was incredibly good at the Opening and is absolutely worth his ranking. Would be a major addition to the Buckeyes offense. I still want Victor more, though.
How close are you with Jake Hausmann? Did him committing early ever make you reconsider Ohio State as a top choice? Or have you always been interested in becoming the next great tight end duo, a la Heuerman and Vannett?
Man, Urban was right about the future being bright. But I can't help but feel like even that was a modest statement.. I can't even fathom potentially having to tell a guy like Ford, Holmes, Okudah, Wade, or Lecounte that there's no more room..
