I remember Tress early on making the Akrons and Kent States of the world sound like formidable foes.  I always thought man, this guy is the total opposite of a dude like Barry Switzer who would just say "we're going to hang half a hundred on em" no matter who those Oklahoma teams played.  I couldn't stand those Oklahoma squads, but I sure loved to hear what Switz had to say.  Tress speak was frustrating, but I enjoyed it too.  Tress was a calculated master.  I like Urban's approach.  I could listen to him all day.  His no nonsense approach is just what we need.  I can't wait to see what he has to say next.

That is what we like to hear.  Thanks Jordan.  It gets a little frustrating as a fan watching a school like Penn State, who hasn't been at a consistent elite level for ages, sign so many high level recruits with OSU offers.  The school is on serious probation with bans, yet they are flocking to Franklin like he is a prophet.  I understand the kids will have a better chance to play, but early playing time often isn't the top factor for recruits.  Dude must be a master salesman.  Historically this kind of thing does not happen to a program in that kind of shape.  Especially when going head to head with a coach and master recruiter like Meyer.

The problem with Paul George was the ESPN (and others) Hype.  The dude is really, really good, but not the elite player they were making him out to be or want him to be.  People comparing him to Lebron James is just dumb.  On the brighter side, his fall from grace is nowhere near the disgrace that is the play of Roy Hibbert.

Well, if they consider them employees, then the scholarship can be treated as income.  75 grand a year for Northwestern is a lot of cash owed to the IRS.  Union greed driving kids to make hasty decisions.  Be careful what you wish for.  If this does hold up over the course, look for schools to change scholarship structure.

My favorite used to be Manning Face (Eli)  every time he threw one of his many picks, or Kobe Face when he was trying to stare someone down early in his career ( I was hoping Malone would just step on him), but now my favorite is CREAN FACE!!!!

Woody said Gradishar was the best linebacker he had ever coached.  It is also widely accepted the perennial All Pro is the greatest defensive player to ever play for the Denver Broncos.  Oh and Cousineau was great too.  The former #1 overall pick.  I would take both over Hawk.

As far as I am concerned, Trey has earned more playing time.  The dude can make you cringe from the free throw line and he is sometimes out of position, but the man has been playing his ass off.  Amir is non existent half the time.

A vertical Leap is measuring how high you can jump off the ground from a two foot set position.  Whether you are Manute Bol or Spud Webb, 42 inches is 42 inches no matter how tall you are.  

Comment 24 Feb 2014

This is exactly the kind of article I need.  When you're busy, a quick snapshot of the talent all in one article is just the thing for me.  I like the sound of Dowdy and Stump and hope they get offers soon.

“I’ll do whatever the coaches need from me,” said Bennett. “If I get two tackles a game or 12 tackles a game I’m fine with it as long as we win, I’m doing my job and doing a good job at it.”

That is why I love this guy.  I hope he has an injury free year.  Good things will happen.

Press Coverage........hmmmm.....ah yes, now that's something I seem to remember Winfield, Springs, and Clements doing.

Comment 12 Feb 2014

Ash did more with less at Wisky than you could imagine.  It's next to impossible to do what he did with 2 and 3 star players.  I'm salivating to see what the man can do with 4s and 5s.

Texas spent 176.5 MIllion.  I bet more people from Ohio will complain about the 20 mil spent on our locker room than any Texan will complain about Texas spending nearly 8 times that amount.
