It's odd that he simultaneously has a reputation for being shy and for being an attention seeker.  I'm also really surprised he didn't just tweet out a couple months ago saying he was still going to be back. Usually people in similar situations seem to say they are coming back until they officially announce otherwise (it seems particularly common regarding the draft).

I think Birm likes to get a 24 hour anticipation frenzy going for the hurry up. It seems like his crystal ball submissions are timed to allow us all to speculate wildly before the next hurry up where he explains his thinking.

Practice over, homework done. You know what I'm doing

Obviously not working out your chest or shoulders.

I like where you're going with this but because Urban is 3-0 in national championships, if he has the team to get there he refuses to lose no matter where it's played.

The article says he is interested in a program's culture and how they develop you as a man. Basically every recruit that commits to Meyer recently seems to list one or both of these two as a key in their decision. When you combine that with Warriner's resume, we should have as good of a chance as anyone , assuming he isn't bothered by distance.

The best thing that could happen for Zeke's Heisman hopes would be a two (or three) quarterback system. If we play more than one quarterback very few people will vote for any of them while Zeke's will be the clear running back.  I know there are a lot of reasons not to have a system with more than one quarterback, and I'm not suggesting we do it, but it would help another OSU running back bring home a Heisman

The cool thing about this crazy quarterback situation that we have is a guy like Gibson has the opportunity to pick up different skills from all three quarterbacks. Physically he is kind of a blend of all three so if he can start picking up the best parts of each quarterbacks game it will be a much better education than a guy that comes in and can only learn from one starter.

Trill had a really weird year. He went from hero to goat in record time and was benched and out the door ridiculously fast. I have a feeling there is more to this story behind the scenes.

I'm really surprised you think he can't add weight without losing speed. If that's true then maybe he should be a safety but I assume that the staff recruited him with the intention of adding weight and they certainly don't want a prospect to slow down.

If I was a former player I would love to see new players wear my number. Particularly if they do so because they play the same position as me. Being remembered years later even by young recruits is a huge complement in today's society.

I've heard Chris Childers, another broadcaster on the same station, say he isn't as high on TCU as everyone else. His reasoning is they are replacing 3/4 of their DBs and two or do linebackers. As good of a coach as Patterson is, he hasn't recruited well enough to have the next man up be as good like Ohio State and Alabama.

I think this is a good point, it is hard for most non-traditional powers topmost step back when losing guys.  They still could easily win the Big Twelve because no line plays defense in that league, but they could end up getting exposed eventually.

Anyways I just thought this was interesting and got this thread fairly well.

I just really wish Lattimore was healthy enough to make it a true three way corner race.

I really like all of these predictions and hope they all come true. We always expect too much out of true freshman. If one is playing it is probably a bad sign given all the talent we return.

I'd like to see a really solid challenger from the west. With the division realignment it feels like Wisconsin wins by default while Nebraska trips just short of the finish line and basically everyone else never had a chance.
