Yeah, I feel like I'm 50/50 on this one. Does it seem petty to decommitt from a program for something like this? Sure. But at the same time, if I was a top recruit (I know I'm far from it) I would be kind of pissed if the head coach of the team I committed to didn't even know who I was. Everyone talks about "relationships" in recruiting, and knowing what someone looks like factors into that. I have a feeling that this wasn't the only reason he decided to looks at other places, but either way I think both sides will be fine without the other
Wade is going to be a beast, I would hate to lose him to Bama
You took the words out of my mouth, Williams should technically still be in high school, nobody should be expecting him to look like a starter right now
I watched Harris' highlights as well as Cam Akers (this gives me an expert opinion) I would definitely take either of them over Sibley. And no offense to Sibley, like others have said I don't look forward to seeing him in an opponents backfield. But goodness Harris and Akers are men among boys. Akers looks like a shot out of a cannon when he gets the ball and rarely gets tackled, Harris looks like someone you could put an offense around. I have a good feeling urban gets one of them, and I think buckeye nation will be happy with either
I say definitely not. If they throw in a couple first round picks, maybe. You're just not getting enough in return trading them straight up. It will probably be at least another year or two before D'Angelo would even be considered an All-Star. It's a fun thing to speculate, but the Lakers would be robbing the Cavs with this trade. Kyrie is still only 24 years old, even though he's been injury prone, he should still have plenty of great years ahead of him
I found a buzzfeed article with 60 stock photos similar to these. http://www.buzzfeed.com/mjs538/60-completely-unusable-stock-photos#.kaeqWkLxe
Here's one of the highlights
Also if you zoom in on the opposite endzone, you can see some more terrible photoshop on "Hurricanes", as well as the flags on the top back side of the stadium. Poor Miami
I know a lot of people down play the NIT, but if this young team can win some games without Tate, you never know what a confidence boost could do over the offseason. I'm a Thad supporter, and I think next year will be much more telling of the direction of the basketball program than this year. The team has plenty of potential
Wasn't that the reason he was suspended for the whole season?
I have to agree with Birm, while the misspelling is hilarious, the actual graphic itself is pretty sweet. Someday they'll figure out the whole spelling thing
I'm guessing two of the QBs would be Martell and Robinson..
I had the same exact thought when I read his weight, he's only 14 lbs heavier than Mack. They probably want him around 240-250. If he keeps his speed with added weight, watch out
We're a very young team in arguably the toughest conference in basketball. If we win one more game, there will be 9 teams in the conference with at least 20 wins this season. The overall basketball talent in Ohio also seemed to drop off for a year or two, and we've had in-state 5 stars go to Duke and Kansas, both blue blood programs. Not to mention Kentucky is now on top of the basketball world and can almost take their pick in the midwest. I'm not excusing the so-so records the past couple years, but I don't think all of the blame should be on Matta. Before the season started I had a feeling this could be a tough year. I want to see how the team plays in the B1G tourney, but I personally think next year will be much more telling in regards to the direction of the basketball team.
Definitely doesn't help that they did some graphics downgrades since they originally released a preview of it. A year ago when I first saw clips for this game I thought it was going to be amazing, now I'm gonna wait and see what others think about it.
If anything, the competition could show who gets time at those 3rd and 4th WR spots
How do you see the DB situation working out? I know there is talk about White and Pryor moving to LB, but it still seems like it could be a crowded group. Lamont Wade, Holmes and Okudah are all guys that you can't say no to, and we're at least in the top 3 for Okudah and Wade. With this class projecting to be a smaller one, can they justify bringing in 5-7 players for the defensive backfield? Do you think a commitment from any of the above would have an effect on Shaun Wade?
There is a lot of WR talent in Ohio right now, as well as the midwest in general. Then we're favorites for arguably the best slot WR in the class from California, and arguably the best overall WR in the class from Florida. You can't exactly go after them all
I feel like the Browns can't be this bad for another decade, but they seem to prove me wrong every year. What actually keeps me up to date on the NFL is fantasy football
I would have to imagine the majority of the players invited to the combine are supposed to get drafted
I feel like I've missed most of the coverage of linebackers for the 2017 class. This would be a question for Birm or anyone else in the know: any chance we pull Moses from the SEC or Browning out of Texas?
I'm guessing that would have been last year though?
I was thinking the same thing a couple days ago after the Bruce event, but realized that most of us really don't know what we're talking about when it comes to this. All we have to "evaluate" players is their highlight reels and what number they are on one of the many recruiting websites. That won't stop me from following it, or commenting on it, but Urban and the rest of the staff are payed very well for what they do, and they do it well, so it's definitely not my place to question what they're doing or how they do their job ha. He hasn't let us down yet
For everyone saying there isn't room, does that mean we will for sure be getting 1-2 more commitments in this class? The staff saying there's no room would have to mean that they know there are more commits coming wouldn't it?
The U : (
Just for clarification, Harrison is being offered as an Athlete/Linebacker correct?
