Alabama has students that know what a computer is?
I think he and D. Lee have the absolute highest upside of any prospects in the draft defensively. There are more proven guys who were taken in the 1st round (Ramsey from FSU, Jackson III from Houston), but I think he ends up being a very good CB in the NFL.
Our Cruisers can't repel firepower of that magnitude!
The real question: Does Mrs. Ford hook up the 1st round picks with a new vehicle?
In a way it was common sense, it was the media and fans hitting them over the head again and again with a stick named common sense.
And the best part about it from Eli's side? In order to bond with his teammates, just ask his dad to come and cook them an awesome meal or two. Heck, invite the whole roster over for it.
Screams that it's a TTUN man. Nothing like a whiny AAAA for making generalized B.S. statements about an entire school's draft class
Although, IIRC, Keyshawn had some issues with maturity at USC and in his early years in the NFL, so I can't think of a better person to sit there and tell his nephew, "This is what you want to do, this is what you want to avoid." and reinforce the coaches' messages.
Don't Lions know they're the worst editors ever?
My best guess would be that A.J. isn't showing what's needed as a blocker (I noticed him whiffing a few times during the spring game, not sure whether it was his fault of the O-line's), so we get a good blocker for a season, and hopefully a guy who can help the younger TEs learn how to block more effectively.
The only problem I see is that Carson Palmer might prima donna the whole thing and make it difficult for Cardale to learn anything from him.
I'm with OSU78 on this one. Not to get too political, but the NCAA is clearly given a de facto anti-trust exemption (I'm not aware, nor can I quickly find anything legally done to protect it), and positions itself as the easiest way for student athletes to compete and work with schools. It all comes down to the same Tatgate thing for me, where Posey had a landscaping job that yes, he may not have gotten if he weren't a OSU football player, but it paid a market rate that the company's union had agreed to, however, that market rate was above the NCAA's limits, so Posey got in trouble and suspended. Unfortunately, the business in question decided to let the matter go, rather than challenge the NCAA's blatant punishment of an individual and a business (the owner got a show cause and told not to be a booster any longer) for following state and federal law. Basically, Mark Emmert is fortunate he has bodyguards, because if given the opportunity, I would tar and feather him, and ride him out of town on a rail, literally. He's a rat, and General Sherman is ashamed of what that former president of LSU has done.
Usually these kind of proposals include a payment to the player, and they can choose to take part of that payment as a scholarship.
I won't call someone entitled unless I know their situation. It's possible the kid's family life was such that he couldn't get up here to camp earlier than he did. Those things happen in recruiting.
And then he can infiltrate the Dead Presidents and bring them to justice with his super sweet surfing, right?
Toro personal paces are awesome. My dad has had one since 2000, still going strong, and totally worth the $350 for it at the time. I went from being able to do the yard (1.5 acres) in 1 hr 45 min to doing it in just over 1 hr, because you can jog slowly for the long runs of it. Plus, that sucker is handy where they live now, since my dad still mows the top of the meadow with it (far too steep for the ride on).
Although Carson Palmer does not seem like the mentor type to me. He is way too much of a self absorbed narcissist to help Cardale learn the position at all, and would probably be actively hostile.
That is kind of surprising, since I can't think of any great Oregon State Wideouts developed or recruited by Reilly (Chad Johnson and T.J. Housmanzadeh were recruited as JUCOs by Dennis Erikson).
Quadruple A, at your service.
Plus, since they play a hybrid front, having him in there will only help when they switch to 3-4 from 4-3. They have some really good young players, just not a cohesive unit last year.
And if Sproles is willing to teach him some of the tricks of the pro trade, even better. On of the absolute best out of the backfield, IMHO.
But TATTOOOOS!!! DUH DERP DE DERP DE WE ARE ESPN DE DERP DE DERP!!!!!!!!!
They just know Shakespeare's gonna come out any day now....
Would be much more appropriate if they put in a Lenin like tomb in the middle of the Oval.
