Im ready for the beginning of the end down there but seems like this happens every year. Then Alabama closes with 92837392 five star guys.  Their running back room I pretty good right now.

Saban has something like 7 straight #1 classes. I wait until signing day before getting hyped about Saban slipping.

If you're a glass half full guy, here's your spin...

This allows us to get a hot up and coming coach.  Since we'll only have 2 scholarship players left, the new coach can immediately Load 10 of his own guys/recruits and ball out immediately. 

This is all very good news for hiring a new coach.

I didnt fully read the tiers and the break down of the contract but at first pass I remember Fox and ESPN basically split first tier rights.  However, Fox paid slightly more and owns 51% of BTN so I believe they technically have first crack.  That means the OSU vs Mich game is going to be on Fox most years (hello Gus Johnson!) and also the B1G championship game goes to Fox.  No idea how other games will get priority on networks but the B1G's relatively short contract is going to make the next one pretty interesting in terms of setting the tone for the future.  No clue if streaming will be all the rage in 6 years or if we'll be watching intergalactic holograms play quidditch.

Commenting so I can listen later...

However, Spiels is one of my all time favorite dudes to listen to.  He is all that is good and pure with sports...wish there were more like him.

Breakout Offensive Player = JT MotherF***in Barrett.  Return of the Jedi, get yer groove back, slang the rock JT.  Dude is going to shred B1G defenses.

Breakout Defensive Player = Kendall Sheffield.

 Even though he chose to be a skunk bear, Butt is a solid player. Stinks for him that he injured his ACL but assuming he recovers, the Broncos got a steal in the 5th round. 

I especially enjoyed the draft piece about the Butt family making a joke of their name and all the custom Butt joke t-shirts/jerseys they wear to games. 

Comment 28 Apr 2017

Agreed. Whatever happened that night, whatever side is closer to the truth, by all information released at this point it certainly points to no conviction for Conley and probably no arrest made. 

As the NFL is a business and the draft is really no more than a speculative investment - I'm sure teams had their legal staff review the case and advise on likelihood of charges/conviction. Once your data points are solidified on the legal side and your opinion is formed on Conleys character, it's down the the gamble of risk/reward. Some teams are situated well enough where it's not worth it to deal with at all, whatever the tea leaves say. Others are willing to take that risk as a function of the value versus their needs. Raiders pulled the trigger and we shall see how it all plays out...but that sure seems like the legal side of things will work to Conleys favor. 

Comment 25 Apr 2017

Oh man, this stinks all around.  I hope it's not true but I hope more that justice, whatever it is in this case, prevails.

The good news is that there are other folks involved who will certainly play a role in the investigation.

From what I remember, there were rumblings about shady dealings. But there were also health rumblings. At his ritirement presser he said it wasn't health just that he was 62 and guessed he had about 10 more years and wanted to live them out in peace.

The West Virginia governor should stay in his lane and get to work on governing.  It's a beautiful state but one in shambles.

Also, trying to push out Doc Holliday for no other reason than he's friends with former coach Pruett is absolutely ridiculous.  Holliday has the Herd back in a good spot.  I know Pruett had those amazing teams with Pennington and Moss and those guys but he's been out of the game for a while and he had a niche of taking SEC cast offs/troubled dudes.

But to answer OP - Doc Holliday is a dang good coach and especially as a coordinator and especially especially as a coordinator with a history with Urban.

I had always maintained they dont bring anything to the table and art the 3rd best school in a bad state...however, if they're serious about reinvesting some of their B1G money into their program and now with Brohm - I'm interested to see what they can do.  As long as they're contributing and trying, I will allow it.
