Power Index is different than power rankings.  ESPN actually did have the power Index posted and I about laughed myself sick.  SEC bias even by their horrid standards.

Let's keep in mind that unheralded, Connor Cook, took a bunch of  2 and 3 stars at Michigan State and went 12-1 with a Big Ten Championship and BCS Bowl Victory in his first year as a starter.  JT will be fine.  I wish Braxton a speedy, complete recovery.

Hop was a dominant player.  Could you imagine if OSU had a cat like him now?  29 points a game shooting 52% and 42% from 3.  Not to mention 81 % from the line and 8.2 boards a game.  I remember many 30+ games.  The man was a scoring machine.

Well let me tell you somethin' Brother!  Germany is goin' DOWN, Jack!

Good job Johnny.  The Lovecraft reference was classic.

James Franklin's comment about dominating recruiting in a six hour radius should rile people up a bit more than I have seen.  Columbus and Cleveland are in that 6 hours.

Comment 08 May 2014

And considering he has done it with 2 and 3 star players with the occasional 4 is remarkable.

Comment 06 May 2014

OK.  Someone needs to explain what is happening at Penn State.  They have a 15 scholarship signing limit and a 65 scholarship roster limit under the sanctions.  Franklin has obviously brought the SEC over signing concept, but something else has to be going on.  You can get the "Playing Early" stuff out of here.  People go to schools like Ohio State, USC, Alabama, LSU, and Florida all the time and know they will sit a while.  I've been following this game for a long time and whether it was Alabama, USC, SMU, Auburn, Oklahoma, Miami or whoever got hit by sanctions, it took a long time to get back, and top players stayed away until things were back to normal.  I know Ohio State's recruiting class will be good this year, but something is odd at PSU.

Illinois, Minnesota, Michigan State all dishing out a lot of coin for 2 and 3 star dudes.

Comment 18 Apr 2014

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.

Comment 15 Apr 2014

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.

Comment 10 Apr 2014

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.

Comment 27 Mar 2014

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.
