in the end the star rating is irrelevant
I think irrelevant is the wrong word - they are however highly subjective - but overall they are fairly predictive. The other thing is 5* are the top 1% (or less) of recruits, 4* get you into the top 10% of all FBS recruits, and so being a 3* isn't too shabby - in the end it's about talent, size and mostly a desire to work, learn & win.
"Stud" may be the perfect name for an O-line coach.
Competition is a good thing!
It's your thread, you can do anything you like!
And Sgt Shultz and I know nothing, Nothing!
just like we knew that the 2015 team was not a great team.
Respectfully, I disagree - a team that didn't live up to potential, but it could/should have been great (as evidenced by the last two games).
If you're a Pup at Ohio State prepared to fight for your life in workouts and practice. They're going to break people to see who's ready.— jbook (@jbook37) January 6, 2016
Spring Ball will be a very different environment compared to 2015 where there were very few questions about starters and playing time. This is why they choose to come to Ohio State!
On the plus side, 2016 is setting up perfectly for that elusive Coach of the Year Award Ohio State fans have been clamoring for.— Jeremy Birmingham (@Birm) January 6, 2016
But Minnesota will probably win the B1G West with a 9-3 record and get Claeys the award
If he makes a roster the NFL rookie minimum ought to be about $450K, which is a couple more dollars than Tyvis will have made in 2015. I trust he got some good advice, and will keep practicing his banter for his life after football.
Second only to tTUN, love to see them lose, doubly so when they lose to the Buckeyes.
With the turnover across the top teams I expect the Buckeyes to to playing for a trip to Indy when they go to East Lansing, and then come home to whip tTUN one more time, just for the fun of it.
I thought it was a dance move
To be on the field winning a NC in 2OT as B1G underdogs would be epic!
But the FCS has an actual 24 team playoff.......
James Madison was the 5 seed but lost to unseeded Colgate 44-38 last weekend - maybe Defense isn't really Everett Withers thing?
I'd love to see Sparty beat Bama and keep them out of the NCG and the B1G in it - then Sparty can go ahead and lose to the Sooners setting up a B1G game in Norman come September.
It's a step up from last year when the B1G wasn't favored in any bowl game......and that turned out pretty well.
Happy Birthday DJ! Your Pops has a winning post & son.
