Well put.  Legal troubles suck, but I'm not worried about underage drinking.  I never got caught, but seriously, who didn't drink before 21?

I think there was a thread explaining it, but it may have been in the old site.  This could be be wrong (I don't post GIFs often), but find a GIF after doing a search, copy the image location after right clicking on the GIF you like, then come back here and click reply for the thread you're posting, click on the image icon on the top toolbar when you're typing a reply, and paste the location in the URL space.

Playing the service academies is tough.  Everyone roots for them (honestly, if we had to lose a game, I'd pick one of them to lose to), they'll always be the underdog, and they run crazy offenses.  And you know those guys will be bringing it every play.  This game vs Navy does make me nervous.  I will be very glad to get out with a W.  We can get style points later.

Cardale took a grey shirt year.  Then he took a red shirt the next year.  He was technically still a freshman last year after the red shirt.  Now he is a red shirt sophmore.  Therefore, he has been here as long as braxton miller and has two more years of "experience" developing as a college quarterback.  May the best player win.

Comment 10 Mar 2014

I don't like the idea of a binding agreement to a 16 or 17 year old, and asking him to stick to that commitment for a long time.  Additionally, Stanford's coach made some good comments about how this would penalize schools with stronger academic standards.  They have to wait for the admission's office to accept players and in certain cases could not agree to an early decision.  Basketball, a sport with the early signing period, has an unbelievable rate of transfers.  I initially was on board with early signing period.  I think February is too late a signing day and would like to see that date moved up.  But these thoughts have me change my stance on the issue.

If he's already a multi-millionaire professional football player, I would agree.  Since he's straight out of college, and a likely late-round/undrafted pick, I would highly encourage him to use his college football past to make money the way the NCAA used him to make money.

I went to Kent State and saw him when he played for Akron.   It took me a second to get it, but every time he touched the ball, the crowd shook their keys!  It was freakin' hilarious.  Even when I was at Kent State, I was 100% Buckeyes.  But it was fun to be there during the Antonio Gates era and the Elite 8 run!

I can't say I'm an expert on Alabama, but I've lived in Huntsville AL, Columbus OH, and Dallas TX with several visits to Austin.  If location had anything to do with the decision, University of Alabama would be last on my list.

Who knows what his Dad is thinking or going through.  Can't blame anyone unless you know the true, exact, behind-the-scene situation.  It's been nice to see in the Forums that many people have held off on passing judgement.  I know firsthand what it was like to have my mom way too involved when I made my college decision.  I hope it works out for MM as well as it luckily did for me.

some want to pull his offer (what?!?).

 

Unbelievable.  Some people actually would want a university to pull an offer of free education to a high school kid because of indecision.  That's delusional and shows a complete lack of empathy.

Comment 04 Feb 2014

Sounds like Jones is an essential piece of a position that is losing several starters, while McDowell is icing on the cake.  I am hoping for both, but rooting harder to hang on to Jones.  Even if McDowell's parents have his best intentions in mind (which it sounds like), it sucks to publicly have your parents rule out schools you like.  Best of luck to the kids wherever they end up.

Comment 29 Jan 2014

Good video.  Really liked how he came down with the ball several times in a crowd.  Obviously the speed there is unreal.  Can't wait for him!  The yellow circles and constant pauses did get annoying after a while.

Comment 24 Jan 2014

I think Beanie is better, but not by such a large margin that I find it unbelievable if people liked Hyde better.  I think both had a tremendous amount of power, but Beanie had elusiveness in college that outmatched Hyde.  Both are great running backs, but especially with Hyde fresh in our minds, people forget how great Beanie was at OSU.  Perfect for Tressel.  A shame injuries derailed Beanie's NFL career.  Hope Hyde has much better luck.

Comment 24 Jan 2014

Ummm, he's a high school kid enjoying his recruiting process and interacts in a friendly manner with fans.  Even if he doesn't end up here, he seems like a great kid.

Thank you very much!  I'm been down for last couple days with one of the worst colds I've ever had.  11W has been my only entertainment.  Great community here!
