He also ran that time with tennis shoes and not track shoes too. Couldn't find his size for track shoes.

lmao like who are you even talking to you? If it's me I'm in my early 20's so therefore not much older than these kids. I also went through recruiting albeit in a different sport I played at where I attended college within the last few years. 

Here's another "dope" idea out there called a debate where your opinions are argued. There's also this "dope" idea where no opinion is above some form of reproach. Just because someone throws out an opinion doesn't mean there's this invisible rule that someone can't counter argue. I do enjoy your condescending tone throughout though and I'm glad you provided nothing of value to the argument.

Dont want to hijack the Teradja thread so that's all I'll comment on it further .....go bucks!

Comment 08 May 2017

So let me get this straight. Weather would be a factor over: if the school has your major, where said school ranks with your major, football facilities, social life/things to do around campus or near campus, your position coach, head coach, current/future depth chart, other players being brought in your class, recent history of drafted players at your position, programs outside of football that help with life after football? No your right weather should be vastly more important than any of those.....smdh unreal. As for dead of winter comment I would think being from OH would've made you realize that although the winter solstice starts on December 21 winter like conditions can and will start much earlier than that. Lastly, the phrase is used to describe the ecology surround winter-esque conditions where foliage and many other things are considered "dead" until spring arrives. Again surprised being from OH you do not know that but I digress.

Not saying anyone is telling them to do anything but it's logical to assume it's a dumb excuse seeing as how a very high % of pro teams are in cold weather cities. I would also say if a kid doesn't like the cold weather he should prob play another sport seeing as how it's played in the dead of winter. Wouldn't you want to acclimate to it before you're absolutely forced to for I don't know the next decade of your life? Honestly who genuinely enjoys cold weather outside of winter x-games and Winter Olympics participants?

Yet not a boom from Pantoni??? Hmmm this one seems weird at the moment.

edit: NVM just saw the tweet from Coombs so looks like it's legit.

Comment 26 Apr 2017

Lots of OH kids won't be in this class not bc of their talent but bc they have work to do in the classroom. The 2018 class in OH is one of the best in a few years and it's a shame bc a good portion of the top 25 kids might have clearinghouse issues.

Should add that any delay in announcing tonight could be due to waiting for the video to be finished if that's what he's doing or could be waiting for an edit to be completed as well to add to any commitment message. 

Comment 25 Apr 2017

No time been floated around but will be tonight. If I had to guess prob somewhere around 8 since that seems to be a typical time most prospects do it when announcing in the evening.

Comment 25 Apr 2017

I wanna say it's from the last 2 episodes - High School Reunion - of Season 7.

edit: Stanley beat me by 16 seconds but he's right it was part 2 of the high school reunion episodes. Either way just an amazing show and closest thing there's been to Seinfeld. Up vote for Stan!

Comment 25 Apr 2017

To everyone freaking out about the whole making a video w/ a Georgia writer thing, he or 247/rivals etc. are not going to fly out an tOSU writer to make a video. Nor is he going to fly/drive up to OH to do a video then head right back home. 

Comment 25 Apr 2017

I don't care if they're favored to win the west that's great they get a front row seat to their own a** kicking by Bama. I've heard all the hype with them before when they had Stafford and Moreno and those 2 were better than anything they got now. Going there to play for championships is laughable to me you might as well go play at Tennessee where you're at least guaranteed to be a champion of life. Not to mention the coach there is basically Muschamp only nicer. The only logical reason to go there for Brenton is to play closer to family bc I cannot honestly fathom any other reason or aspect they could sell him on at this moment. Furthermore he really needs to think about position. Georgia runs a 3-4 so he needs to decide if he wants to be a 3-4 OLB or a 4-3 DE. 

Comment 24 Apr 2017

It does matter to a family that wants to see him play and has to pay for travel. Just because his relationship has been longer doesn't make it better. There's been countless times in recruiting history where teams with longer relationships didn't win out. Honestly the negative nancy routines/defeatist attitudes/freaking out every cycle regarding Urban and his staff's ability to recruit and close an OOS kid completely and utterly baffle me. If Urban personally recruits a kid, in this case Mitchell, it's rare he doesn't win.

Comment 24 Apr 2017

Theory vs. Testimony. Some kids just like the theory aspect to play part in resurrecting a mediocre program. Also I know he lives in Georgia but he and his family are originally from Tampa not Georgia so it's a home state school to an extent. If we land him I'll be ecstatic if we don't then hey I'm not gonna sweat it. How many times has this staff/Urban shown when losing out on a recruit they get replaced with equal or greater value.

Comment 23 Apr 2017

I believe that's from his first visit to us and I think he's had it up for a few months now - which speaks to the fact he just wanted mom's blessing the whole time.
