I think the whole thing is ridiculous to assume that he thinks he doesn't have a chance at competing with JT and cardale. He was an incredible QB that carried the team when we had NO ONE. He could be phenomenal with a good OL/WR group, so it makes no sense for him to go and compete in a new system with new players and coaches against guys who already know it.

I must say, although this is basically fabricated/exaggerated, it's really annoying how players/media say "oh, Ohio state already has too many at that position", but that doesn't happen at Alabama or other similar schools.

"know everything about football, we're SECCCC fans"

Is that a drawn out C or are they repeating the C? When they're repeating the C, it means they're broken and usually need to be hit on the head to stop it. The drawn out C is normal for them, but that can also be interrupted with a hit on the head if they get stuck.

Exactly. This is the main reason I don't believe he would want to transfer. I think he would have a difficult time getting acclimated to a new school, team, coach with his personality. Set aside the fact that he can't fully practice probably till August, and he still would need to form relationships with new players and coaches. I just can't see him wanting to do that.

Thought this was gonna be a thread about the panda bear (technically jane) song... Oh well :/

Comment 28 Feb 2015

probably a very similar outcome, but a more consistent pass rush. according to ash, that was a very basic defensive play that led to the int.

He always has the guys hitting their stride in February-March. For this sport, you can't ask for much more than that (and getting top recruiting classes to a "football school")

Comment 08 Feb 2015

seems like he'd be slamming on his brakes too often and then ramping over other cars. unsafe. friends don't let friends let braxton drive

Comment 08 Feb 2015

highly suggest watching while the page is still loading/on slow internet. you can see how he anticipates each defensive player and adjusts from frame to frame. it's incredible. i hope he sees the field somehow this year.

Comment 06 Feb 2015

Not necessarily. Russell Wilson transferred to wiscy on June 27th (although he had been granted release from nc state on April 29th). 

Comment 06 Feb 2015

I believe he interviewed the day after NSD. I'm not sure he knew he would get it.

Comment 05 Feb 2015

espn absolutely talked about us and in a very good light. 5 stars are usually the guys deciding on NSD, and it's usually only between two schools (often predetermined as well). We actually had lots of players who had us on the table (wariboko, beckner, etc), but we don't watch those because we already know we're not really getting them. Also, many teams have a lot of 3 stars and are hoping to wait for a few 5 stars at the end. On the other hand, teams like bama and us generally have a lot of 4 stars and take the 5 stars that commit early or that we have a great chance with. That strategy means going after lower top tier players that we have a greater chance of landing rather than going after one 5 star and settling for 3 star guys.
