Had he played 2 or 3 years at osu, I think he'd have elevated himself to the legend level ala Archie or Eddie. Him and Zeke as 1-2 would be ridiculous.
In 2006, my high school had a kid that won the 1,2,4 and anchored the 4x2 title team at state in D3. Fastest guy I've ever seen run and he ran 21.55 that year. Was maybe 6 feet, 180 though. Couldn't imagine a guy that big running that fast.
True, honestly didn't even consider OOC games. That's top 3 for sure I bet.
The BTCG has been on a fox for a few years now. Gotta believe that's a given that fox has.
What else could be 2nd other than osu-psu? Wisc-neb? Msu-mich? Mich-psu? I don't see any other game higher, even bias aside.
They looked solid at the end but personally, I can't allow a team that gets beat that badly, at any point in the season, to play for a title. Haha.
I don't believe any team ranked below top 5 or 6 can win it anyway. There's always a solid top 5 and then everybody else generally. 6 would be nice but I don't ever see "byes" being included. 4 is fine with me until they figure out a feasible plan for 8. But never 16.
Shhh, no one likes reason and logic these days. :)
Go help trip up that weirdo and FSU, after they knock bama down first in the season opener.
Haha. I know, just pointing out how much better Meyer has been in roughly the same time period. Kelly seems the perfect coach for that school, be a shame if he got fired...
Kelly has 23 losses in 6 seasons at ND. Urban has 6 in 5 seasons. Even if urban lost 15 games this year, the max amount for a season now, he wouldn't reach Kelly's loss total. I'll never judge a kid for making a college decision but i can't see Brian Kelly and a "winning tradition" being the current draw for notre dame.
I've got you beat on the graduating class. Mine was 45 strong haha. At one time in elementary we had 60 and that would have been the biggest in school history. Mid 50s currently is I believe.
Never been to NYC, Chicago, etc, and really have no desire to go. I'm from close to Lima and I can't stand the traffic there. Haha.
Case in point, see: Young, Chase.
And Kirk ferentz and jimbo fisher. Sorry, thought we were naming coaches that have beat harbaugh or would surely beat him if they played.
Coombs? The op was referring to secondary, which Coombs has always been involved with.
I would say the bottom 3 is pretty solidified, only the order is in question. I'll go 12) Illinois 13) Purdue 14) Rutgers. I'm back and forth on 13-14 with Rutgers being on a hotbed of talent but they're just so bad and Purdue can pick lower tier guys from Ohio in a fairly deep class.
Nothing to show for it?! Florida has a division title and who's got it better than the 3rd place Big Ten east champ?! :)
Absolutely. But this era followed 12 with 7 and now look primed to follow those 2 with another 10-12+. Just insane.
Zeke was a huge part no doubt but uh.. that defense shutting down the heisman winner and Oregon's high flying offense? Come on now. 18 of 22 (will be 19 when price gets drafted) are on NFL teams. Not exactly all "becauze of zeke Elliott." Just saying.
What I get from all the comments on this post is that AAU coaches are calling the shots now and if we can read more into it, may be paying off players to choose certain schools to promote themselves and their AAU team.
Wow, have sports turned ugly.
This. Everyone is getting caught on a couple dozen players that didn't get drafted. Last I checked, those 25ish aren't the majority. Going to college is about the student part of student-athlete for most and if you didn't take advantage of free college and setting yourself up for life after football, whenever that may occur, I can't feel too sorry for you. Especially if you dont have extenuating circumstances such as jake butt who dropped to 5th round and no longer guaranteed a contract because it was 4th or better.
Kinda forgot he still played for them. Hopefully he can stay healthy. Those 2 together definitely made a nice combo.
Heck of a player. Wanted my Steelers to pick him, think he'll be a stud as long as he fully recovers from his surgery. Broncos got their TE for the next decade.
I couldn't believe it when I read about his diet and what it costs him every year. Only as a pro athlete could you even afford that lifestyle but I guess that's why he can.
Can't complain with their picks thru round 3. Got a solid edge rusher, more CB depth and a nice WR that'll start off playing in the slot or maybe as a guy on the outside opposite Bryant with brown in the slot (not to dismiss the other receivers, as I like the group already there) and can't help but think Conner is going to be a great addition as a change of pace/goal line workhorse. Guy is a bruiser and an inspiration. Glad he gets to stay home in pitt.
