It's not surprising Bama has been able to get 4 highly ranked recruits in the last 2 years. Have you seen their DB play recently?
I personally like the fact that Dantonio is able to get high quality players and develop them into stars. Better MSU than scum and it still gives us a high quality to beat each year helping the case as the CFP evaluates SOS every year.
The argument "the big ten needs Michigan to be good" is false and I hope they never win again.
"Wisconsin played pick your poison and ended up drinking all the poison."
Wow. What a legit question. Obviously the normal rotation may take place but perry and Lee are both ranging linebackers and McMillan being the qb of the defense. Sure doesn't seem that LB will have much trouble this year.
For the sake of your argument, I generally agree with this statement. However, based on previous years, Bama has gotten top talent to sign and stick to their commitments very early. Bama being this far down the list at any point is somewhat surprising.
And it feeds into the Cooper comments, which I find funny. :)
I didn't think I need italics for that.
Man, the excuses some people come up with. I'm sure Nick Saban (regardless of what you think of him) let them take it easy in practice, right? That's such BS. He seems really similar to Meyer in his intensity about how to practice and prepare. I dont think for a second that statement is true. Just an excuse for why they got beat.
They led 21-6 for crying out loud. Accept you got beat and move on, damn.
They're getting some of Ohio's top talent though and have the 2 best qbs in the nation.
But does it even matter with Kelly still roaming the sidelines?
It's going to be awesome to watch the future recruiting classes fill up. GoBucks!
Yup, cat's out of the bag after this interview. If he's not constantly needing to talk to him, OSU it is!
Thanks for your time, greatly appreciate it! And a good day to finally have internet with all the buckeye news!
I could be wrong but I read his statement as he's expecting JT to be here 2 more years.
Looking at the stats and eras of the time, I would say that Moore and Kelly are slightly more impressive for the interceptions total, accounting for fewer games as well. The total tackles also only get beat by Doss/Nickey and probably Moore/Kelly.
As far as both categories combined, Moore and Kelly are the only tandem that really is equal or better it seems. And there have been some solid tandems of those in the list. Impressive guys we've got lining up right now.
So only football and basketball players get paid then? Since they're the only revenue sports? What about all the other scholarship athletes?
With as accurate as he looks in his throws in the highlight reel, without transferring weight and half the time being off balance, QB looks like it could work with some good coaching.
Yes, I know it's a highlight reel, but even those show glimpses of potential if there is any. This kid has potential to be a solid qb.
Yes, getting paid on top of not being saddled with college debt for half of your adult life like most of the rest of the college students is ridiculous.
The bottom line of this whole story is simple : If the OSU medical staff, based on their professional OPINION (because that's what all doctors give, an opinion)says Dean should not play football any more, then he can go to a doctor or school that finds his knee suitable to perform the rigors of a football game.
If the OSU medical staff is somehow using their power to benefit the football program and other sports teams at OSU, this is a major problem, probably medical malpractice, and a disgrace to the medical community. But either way, doctors only give opinions based on their own judgement and as I'm assuming they have multiple doctors that agreed on the situation (a second or third OPINION), Dean can take their advice and not play, or try to find somewhere that will clear him.
I agree with the Qb and WR points you make, but there is absolutely no way I see Zeke finishing with any less than 100/ game this year, which means 1500 minimum if they play 15 games, barring injury. He racked up over 1800 last year without really getting going until the last half of the season. I get that they wont wear him out early in the year and especially if they're rolling teams. But I think 2000 yards is in reach, especially if he rips off a couple more 200 yard games.
I have far more ill-will towards Calipari than Saban.
I think Cal is a complete scumbag and it's probably only a matter of time before he gets caught cheating again.
I think I only dislike Saban so much because he is the coach of the program that has dominated college football over the last half decade. But now that that ride may be over, I dont have as much hate for him.
Calipari will always be dirtbag and I believe he is severely overrated. He gets as many McDonalds AA as the rest of the country combined and has 1 title to show for it. All that cheating he's done and getting so many elite players and 1 title. Great recruiter, average to below average coach.
At least Saban has the titles to show, cheater or not.
He must have known something we didnt.
Or just has an eye for what's really going on, and not just in the SEC.
Thanks for the look up.
Herman 48th, was there a more cost effective coach in the country last year? He would have been cost efficient if he led the country in assistant pay.
I wonder what the bonuses for some coaches look like compared to their base salary, as I'm assuming only the base is included in this.
Just wondering if that could change the top 10 much or at all.
Paying a proven commodity is much different than handing out money to an average Joe off the street. Warriner has proven his worth. It's time to pay him what he's due.
Much in the same way Bama fans' meltdown was after January 1.
Could you imagine if a Big Ten team was able to do the unthinkable...TWICE?
I was referring to mine, but yes, I do agree that if you decided to marry her, I would hope she is a keeper :)
