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.

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.

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.

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?

Comment 27 Jul 2015

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..

I have a dream. That someday I will make it to the elite status of 99% upvotes!  And that someday I will be able to simply ignore the JPbucks and Stravinskys of the 11W world and not force myself into a situation where I must upvote 99 people to offset their one ridiculously awful comment.  Alas, I am quite a few votes away from either club!

Before clicking on this I wrote down the top 15 guys I expected I might find on this list.  The only two I had that didn't show up were Farrell and Little and the only one I forgot from your list was Dexter Lawrence (I remembered Rashard).  It's safe to say I'm a faithful Hurry-Up reader, Birm!  On that note, do you have any openings for Fan Boys or Groupies?

Comment 14 Jul 2015

I suppose I should add a caveat onto this comment and say that my primary thought was not that this notion was propositioned by the coaching staff or anything, but that it was more a causality of Braxton not squelching rumors earlier that might hurt other programs in the long run.

Comment 14 Jul 2015

I had a thought that by Braxton not announcing it left a couple of other schools up in the air, so to speak, as to where their 2015 quarterback situation stood.  If a couple big time programs were keeping their options open believing they might realistically have a shot with Miller it might prevent them from looking at other options of shoring up a questionable quarterback situation.  Obviously only to a small extent, I'd assume, but it was a thought that crossed my mind. 

By the way, I came up with that all by myself and I'm not even a conspiracy theorist type.  Does this mean I'm on my way?
