I think it upsets people more when good citizens like Lebron James and Tyreke Smith talk about social/racial issues than if they just carried themselves like Johnny Manziel.
I think you gotta put to Woodbey at this point: He's either in or out. We have too many guys on the DB board to be holding spots for players who aren't really committed.
And I don't mean that as a knock on Woodbey. He's perfectly free to look around. I just think Ohio State might be better off moving on if he's looking around.
I trust the coaches on Chatfield. His measureables don't scream Shazier though.
What are the backup plans should Woodbey and Proctor bolt? Related: Where do we stand with Tyson Campbell and Houston Griffith?
Jerome Baker will lead the team in interceptions.
The passing game will struggle... again. Campbell will lead the team in yards, but it will be a pedestrian number.
Burrell will start at RG.
Worley will lead the team in tackles.
Haubeil will be the kicker.
This kid is special. A genuine freak.
I say we should just try letting people carry whatever guns they want in whatever manner they want anywhere they wants... and see how it turns out. Could be fun.
Is Kamryn Babb the only receiver on the board right now and where do things stand with him?
What about Verdis Brown? We don't hear enough about these guys.
Maybe you should sit this one out for a while, ok champ?
Excuse me? I was just responding to your original political post. I know the policy. I was just smacking you down to make sure it got enforced.
Cowboys blogger seems to think it's Malik Hooker:
One more shot next weekend, but if Clemson still leads after that, I think we need to put focus on scouting OTs who are still growing and could have a high ceiling (aka Plan B).
You know Urban will recruit him hard until the end though. Just feels like the ship is sailing. Unfortunate.
If he were coming to Ohio State, he'd be committed by now. You can tell from that interview that he's looking to leave.
He's gonna be making money than me so far be it for me to judge. This is, however, the Not For Long League. And TP turns 28 years old this year. He'd have to put up eye-popping numbers, injury-free, for this gamble to pay off.
Part of it is some frustration that he's leaving Cleveland, who gave him his chance, and for less money than the Browns were offering. Objectively, it looks like he's overvalued himself.
The Browns have the most cap room of any team in the league. So, naturally, like last year, they won't sign anybody and they'll let Pryor walk.
That franchise is such a shitshow. I wish it were like European soccer and they'd get relegated because that's the only way to punish Haslem for his inept leadership. In the NFL, even shitty owners get to print money.
The way Coach Matta describes the situation, it sounds an awful lot like Kobi Simmons when he delayed his announcement and we had been the front runner. At the time, Kentucky was our main competition. He eventually went to Arizona to play for Sean Miller, who probably didn't say that. So that leaves... Calipari?
Good insight. Doesn't really make me feel all that comfortable.
I'd sometime like to know how these things play out. My assumption, based on the fact that none of these players have ever ripped Meyer on the way out, is that the decision was their own.
It seems like a great plan until you're practicing to play North Texas in the revived gallery furniture.com bowl.
Alabama will sign a lot of players but they aren't favored for many of the top stars so they'll cast a wide net over the next year.
I'm sure Jackson Carman and Malik Vann being teammates certainly plays a little bit of a role in the latter's offer. Ohio State has to be a bit more patient with in-state prospects like Vann because an offer can mean a quick commitment that you're not necessarily ready to accept. Bama doesn't have that concern here.
Doubtful to be anything that happens soon but yeah, I also expect him to go to FSU.
Cavs should have offered Love straight up when they had the chance.
Coaches defend coaches. It happens. But it's a well paid for profession for a reason... because there are high expectations. Don't weep for the coaches who get fired when they don't meet those expectations.
I'm not seeing it with Thomas. He's big and has above average speed. He's not shifty. He's not going to make you miss. He has to be able to see and hit the hole without hesitation but you can't know that from watching high school film.
The Browns will pay TP and he'll take the money when the time comes. He's not taking less money to play for a winner because this is probably the best contract situation he'll ever have. It'll get done.
