Just ignore this thread, Kijana. Most of us on 11W are actually B1G employees and this is just one of the thousands of examples of us, as a conference, trying to keep Penn State down so that we can keep it the Big 2 and Little 12. You are much better off moving to an ACC blog... I got your back.
Dear Jason Begley,
Stop creeping on high school boys.
That's a lot of assumptions.
Depends. If I were Sibley and I was told when I committed that I would continue to be evaluated, that the coaching staff was going to continue to recruit highly rated prospects at my position and that they would accept my commitment but that it does not guarantee my spot in this year's class at this moment, then I really wouldn't have any reason to be insulted.
I would hope this is how Urban recruits and there have been examples, most recently being the UK player, that suggests that he does in fact have these type of real, difficult conversations with recruits.
The days of taking a kid just because he is from Ohio and grew a Buckeye fan are over. We demand national championships from Urban and he is delivering the only way he knows how- recruit the absolute best from all of the country. We, unfortunately, can't have it both ways.
Seems like there has been a much needed concerted effort to schedule better quality opponents the last two years. Need that continue.
Yea, I am actually with Harbaugh on this one.
Whatever you do, do it with confidence, stand by it, trust the process, and give it time. For once in my life, do something right, Cleveland.
So, that brings us to 11 scholarship players on the roster for the '16-'17 season, right? Probably wouldn't be a bad idea to save those and go hard after two more guys in the '17 class.
Similar if you look at just those few seconds. Even if Zeppelin took that segment, they certainly expanded upon it and added a great deal to it. Curious as to which bands you do like, Mizzer?
22-24 regular season wins would be a significant improvement and should easily be reachable.
Getting out of the first round of the NCAA tourney would still be pretty iffy unless they do significantly better 24 wins, because they'll be in a game that's essentially a toss-up (whichever end of 8 vs 9, 7 vs 10, or even 6 vs 11 they might be on), but still likely 50/50.
Lol you said you disagree but pretty much go on to agree with everything I said. I said I don't think we will be "much" better, as I do not think the overall talent is there, but we should still make the tourney. If we end up with 22-24 wins, that is 2-4 more wins than we had this year which really isn't that much better. You place our chances of getting out of the first weekend at 50/50 where I think we probably have about a 33% chance of getting to the Sweet 16 so I guess we disagree slightly there.
I still don't think we will be much better next year. We should make the tourney but I doubt we make it out of the first weekend. If we could somehow add an elite guard to the '17 class and have Lyle stick around, we could be really good in '17-'18.
All good, Buckeyeguy.
Saying that "Cardale Jones is undefeated as a starter" is not the same as saying "Ohio State was undefeated because Cardale started." The former is a fact. The latter is an opinion- one in which I did not express. I am impressed with your drawing capability, though.
Ok. "Ohio State was undefeated when Cardale Jones started at QB" is a fair statement.
Undefeated as the starting quarterback is a fair statement...
Yes, opinions are welcome. But if you are going to create a forum topic to express an opinion, at least bring more to the table than just "I don't think he is going to be good in the NFL. Just my opinion." Maybe offer up a little more substance as to why you don't think he will be good in the NFL, cite other critics of his game, provide some evidence, etc.
In my opinion, you could be a much better poster, Bucknasty.
He sounds like the future coach of Michigan.
This violates the comment policy...

Is this a new article coming out or the one they did a few years back?
"Closer to home" is often used for convenience. It was down to Duke and UM so I wouldn't be surprised to see Beilein take his best shot.
22-23 wins and probably a first weekend exit from the tourney. Having some experience back is great but I would prefer more talent. Hopefully everyone comes back for the '17-18 season and we can add a five star guard to the '17 class. A starting lineup of Gary Trent Jr., Jaquan Lyle, KBD, Tate, and Thompson could very well be a Final Four caliber team.
I am willing to bet that the actual conversation between Gene and Thad was not nearly as friendly as Gene has led on to the media. At least, it shouldn't have been. It is Gene's ultimate responsibility to ensure that all of the coaches are meeting and exceeding expectations and the basketball team has been seemingly on a downward trend for 3 seasons now. I would imagine that Gene didn't threaten Thad's job but I am sure he didn't just pat him on the back and say "good job, buddy," either.
