Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, John Wall, Mike Conley, Derrick Rose, Anthony Davis, Kevin Love....
Have you actually watched Kentucky play this year?? They are a very fundamentally sound team, the play great defense, run the floor and rebound as well as any team. And despite the common misperception this team isn't full of a bunch of one and done's. Cauley-Stine is a jr., The Harrison's are soph's. Poythress (possibly their best player until he got hurt) is a jr. and Dakari Johnson is a soph. and Lee is a soph. They have 4 frosh that contribute and only one of them is guaranteed to go pro after this year.
I agree with whomever said this is a historically great team. What they are doing in this age of the game is ridiculous. UCLA was dominant because their players stayed. Kentucky is dominant despite some of their players leaving. Anthony Davis would be a senior on this team if he stayed like what had to happen when UCLA reigned.
I think it's funny how you say UNLV was dominant...until they lost. If Kentucky goes undefeated it will be a greater accomplishment than any of those teams outside UCLA and Indiana. The goal is to win whether by 1 or 100, they have beat everyone they stepped on the court with. Even on their worst nights, they still won, that's dominance
Despite all you naysayers I still fully support Braxton at QB. He should and will be the starter against VT
Perhaps you don't remember what Duke and UCLA could roll out.
This would probably be my starting 5 as well, I was old enough to watch Jackson but don't remember it as well. First team I really remember was Redd and Penn. Might substitute Redd for Lighty but Lighty would still be on the team.
Craft's game reminds me a lot of Eric Snow, Smart PG, great defender, awful shooter. Im honestly surprised the Cavs haven't looked at him. They need D and a distributor, Craft's strengths, and delly is absolutely awful.
If I remember right Reeves was the one who put the big hit on Gesicki from Penn St. then mysteriously missed several games after that with "focusing issues". Pretty sure he was concussed on that hit then suffered another later in the season in the B1G championship game. Coming back from concussions is one thing but avoiding them all together for a whole season is almost impossible.
If we are relying on positive twitter comments to help get a recruit, then we have all lost at life.
Unfortunately I can only upvote this once
Collier very well may be a good QB the thing is we just don't know. Scout team and real games are very different. Your right JT hadn't proved anything going into this year. But no one was saying last spring we were loaded at QB, why? because no one knew what we had in JT and Cardale. Just like we don't know now what we have in Collier or Burrow.
As far as the recruits coming in, it all looks good on paper but not every 4 and 5 star QB pans out (ask Justin Zwick) who's to say burrow isn't the next Zwick and Gibson is more Troy Smith? We just don't know
The difference might be that our coaching staff has changed on the offensive side of the ball. and correct me if I'm wrong but had they visited auburn before? Perhaps visiting auburn is part of them doing their investigating.
I just find it to be a little weird that some people get so upset about what a 17 or 18 year old, whom you never met, decides to do with a football program that you have no connection to other than you like to watch them play.
What changed was Tom Herman leaving, (Gibson's position coach), Cardale and Braxton decided to stay. Beck was hired. And although I don't know Torrance personally maybe he's had a change of mind or a change of heart. That does happen sometimes with 18 year old kids making life changing decisions.
Your right JT does have three years of eligibility left, but Jameis Winston has 2 years left and yet he is going pro. Not sure if you know this or not but some kids do leave college before using all of their eligibility up
If JT wins the starting job this next year and has another great year there is no guarantee he is coming back.
I disagree that we are loaded at QB for the foreseeable future, unless by foreseeable future you mean next season. We have 3 great QBs next season, after that who knows. All three would be eligible to go Pro, Collier hasn't proven anything, Burrow hasn't proven anything. Gibson is perfectly capable of coming in and beating both of them out and being the starter as a redshirt freshmen or redshirt sophomore.
So what would you say to Da'von Hamilton who just flipped to OSU?? Can't be pissed about kids who flip away a week before signing day, then turn around and praise Meyer for the late flips he gets.
Kids minds change, circumstances change, let it go.
I can't wait til this kid tweets something pro Ohio State and all you guys are right back to riding his D.
Here's a great idea for all of you up set with what he tweets and all the attention you think he loves. Don't follow him on twitter. Why does what some HS kid tweets get all of you so fired up? Let the kid do his thing and live his life
Yes he does. The gameday crew is Howard, Davis, Corso, and Herbstreit. Fans here like to make things up to suit their own needs. Just look at the topic of the thread. No logically thinking person would think Gameday has avoided Columbus. Columbus just hasn't hosted in big games in a couple years.
Yes, yes it does translate to performance. They've won 3 titles in the last 6 years. Yes we beat them this year but I wouldn't start saying their players aren't performing. That's just ridiculous
I also wouldn't say this kid can't cut it at the college level. Sitting behind TJ Yeldon and Derrick Henry is nothing to sneeze at.
I agree with your assessment of those 2016 kids being very good but I feel more comfortable having a kid that already has two years under his belt in a college system than an incoming freshmen still learning the ropes. As far as sitting behind Ball, Samuel, and Weber. The only one of those that has shown anything at the college level is Samuel and that's in very limited carries. I don't think it's fair to say that any of the runningbacks we already have are so much more talented than this kid that we shouldn't even consider it or look into it. Outside of Elliott we have a lot of unproven recruits who may or may not pan out, just like Tenpenny.
So you don't want to bring in a player unproven at the college level because we are bringing in other players that are unproven at the college level??
I don't think you should compare him to the other kids coming in the 2016 class. This kid will have 2 years in a college lifting program and practices. I think he would be good to bring in to add depth with Samuel and Elliott. Never now how Weber will pan out. Having insurance is not a bad thing.
Miller starts next year his red-shirt senior year, Cardale starts the following year, his red-shirt senior year. JT starts in 2017 his red-shirt senior year. Controversy averted.
WR screen to Jalin Marshall that is a backward pass. He then launches one deep to Devin Smith on a Deep post route. TD Bucks
Mr. Wayes, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having read it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
