Definitely not a stretch considering Devin is already an Honorable Mention All-American with OSU's 4x100m team last year.  We've definitely had some speed over the last decade (Ginn, Gonzalez, and Saine are all guys that could have been potential all-NCAA in track).

Teams should consider this:  drafting Craft will automatically be a benefit to your starting PG.  Practicing against Craft day after day is going to make a better offensive player because he's being challenged.

And Kyrie's high on him... Cavs should bring Craft in during the second round to be his backup.  (and try not to screw up the first round again this year, OK?  2013 had to be the worst first round of any team... ever.)

If I had to guess what happened, this would be it. Personally, I feel much more out of it after a long day of no sleep as opposed to having a few drinks.

Pulled these stats (because everything on the Internet is fact!): A study by researchers in Australia showed that being awake for 18 hours produced an impairment equal to a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .05, and .10 after 24 hours; .08 is considered legally drunk.

Horford transferred out and there's still talk of McGary declaring as well.  If he does in fact declare, that leaves them with no guys listed at over 6'9" returning... and that lone guy at 6'9" didn't play a single minute this year. 

Any teams with a decent enough big man are going to have some fun against Michigan next year.

I will not confirm nor deny I ever wore the orange and black...

Cleveland should have a pretty solid per capita number too (thanks Glenville!).  Showing up red on the original map and having a population of just 390K.

You mean they didn't come to play school?

Personally, I feel like some sort of minor league system should be set up, separate from the university's budget, if an education is not considered to be acceptable payment.  Ultimately universities are still a place of education and learning, where 99.9% of the students are there to "play school."

So maybe some sort of business relationship?  Make education an option, instead of the only thing.  Most football players will ultimately need that degree anyway.  

I want to see athletes treated fairly, but at the same time I don't want to see the value of an education be diminished either.

Aaron Craft was named a finalist for the 2014 Collegiate Wooden Cup, given annually to a student-athlete who's have made the greatest positive influence in the lives of others.

Opposing offenses would argue he hasn't been a positive influence to them.

I went with Dontre because as much as I love EZE, I don't think we'll have a 1000 yard back next year, with him and Smith sharing carries.  Dontre will have more opportunity to rack up yards with either the run or pass... and a greater chance for the big play.  I think he has the opportunity to be the only other 1000+ total offense player next year, because I'm expecting a LOT of players to contribute.

Reed had a respectable 2013 season for Findlay.  From their website:
                                
67.4%
1791 yds
162.8 y/g
9.4 y/a
11 TD
7 INT

Also rushed for an additional 389 yds and 2 TD for a 5.8 avg.

Those numbers are also based off of 7 starts. I'm not too in tune with Findlay football, but I'd guess he'll be their full-time starter next year.  Good to see a former Buckeye having success!
