Obviously not my post but I see LSU and Michigan in top 3 for sure with possibility of Georgia and Bama moving up with the available targets left. If the Bucks get all 3 of their top targets they'll probably be top 2, with LSU 1 but miss on 1 and prob 3/4.

Yes, having watched virtually the creator of fhe 3-4 in dick Lebeau for over a decade with the steelers, you need a MONSTER in the middle, like Casey Hampton or Vince wilfork and big, fairly fast DE, almost tackle size guys like bosa. I believe bosa would thrive in a 3-4 defense, whether he's rushing off the edge or has the linebacker outside him as the 4th rusher.

As Birm has stated, you're naive if you dont think every major program does this, But there's still a right and wrong way to go about.

The wrong way is dumping a kid from your class with 2 weeks until signing day and no time to make different arrangements and perhaps visit other schools they may be interested in. The right way is to give kids a month, or hopefully, more to take all those visits, develop relationships elsewhere so they are making an informed decision and got a gut reaction because they have next to no choice now.

This is still a kid's future, not just for the next 3-5 years, but for life and its sickening seeing this type of stuff.

Camp circuits and sitting back throwing to receivers with no pressure are 1 thing. Taking a snap and having 300 pounders bearing down on you are completely different. Guys with good, accurate arms seem to be a dime a dozen anymore but still, very few become elite quarterbacks. 7 on 7 camps cant show the types of things that make elite qbs elite.

Comment 20 Jan 2016

Is this serious? There are TONS of guys under 6 feet who are really good receivers, including the Nfls best right now, Antonio Brown. The chances of him being an all time great are slim but they're slim for everyone. 

Idk whether he'll get drafted or not but to say he's too small or too slow is ridiculous. No, he's absolutely not. 

Comment 11 Jan 2016

I can't believe how big the gap in worth is between OSU and #2, let alone #4 or 5 in ND and Bama. Those numbers are staggeringly far apart. 

As for Bama's new strategy, an uptempo offense that doesn't allow Bama to substitute in specific defensive packages will negate that some and Bama will be forced to either go with the big uglies all 3 downs or keep the pass rush specialists on. If that happens, Clemson has to be able to run the ball effectively.... I think I remember a similar offensive style team having success at that...

Pure guessing here but I'd say it has to do with some of them being Ohio/Kentucky kids who may have grown up rooting for OSU. Also, not being too far away if that's the case, along with U of L being a decent program, it means they get quality kids so if other top options fall off, the commits they're able to land are next in line. 

Comment 01 Dec 2015

While I don't doubt there will a learning curve next year, I do believe PSU, MSU, Michigan, and Wisconsin will all be breaking in new qbs. Losing to Oklahoma on the road probably won't be looked at too much if they somehow manage to win the rest. 

Osu will have more talent in probably every game they play so if the learning curve comes quickly, a conference title certainly isn't out the question, IMO. 

Comment 30 Nov 2015

Sold my tickets for more than 2X what I paid. The PSU-MSU game was a win-win after I saw what tickets were going for. Of course, I wanted OSU playing and to go watch but that extra money is nice this time of year. 

Comment 15 Nov 2015

Only Oklahoma State of the B12 can supplant ND in the rankings, IMO. And only because they could be undefeated. If ND wins out and ok State loses a game, ND is in the final 4. With that being said, my final 4 prediction is: 

1) OSU vs 4) ND 

2) Bama vs 3) Clemson 

Bama struggles with mobile qbs... Rematch of the Orange Bowl

Comment 11 Nov 2015

I tempered my expectations for this season alot of my buddies said "what are you worried about? No one can stop this team from being 13-0 and reaching the playoff again." 

So far, they've been right, but it's still been much tougher than anyone expected. Ohio State hasn't "looked the best" yet but the last 2 weeks, plus conference championship week, our best will be needed. 

The Big Ten is on the rise and this team will have its work cut out for them to stay at the top. 

Comment 08 Nov 2015

The committee didn't like them much when they were undefeated. After losing to a previously 3-6 team, they'll fall pretty far in the playoff rankings. Probably right around 15. 

Based on the ending of their Michigan game, the committee won't hesitate to rank Michigan ahead of them, IMO. 

Comment 08 Nov 2015

I'm just tired of the same old narrative. 

Bama holds #7 to 31 yards and their defense is the greatest thing in football. Well bama had a streak of no 100 yarder rushers for "X" number of games last year before a team from the 'pitiful' Big Ten more than doubled that in a single game. 

I don't think it really matters whether there are 4, 6, or 8. There are 2 or 3 teams every year that could win the championship based on talent and circumstances and 1 of those teams will win it every year with 4 teams or 6 or 8. Just MO.
