This kind of stuff ONLY happens in Michigan
EXACTLY. These kids aren't old enough to get into bars (legally) until their senior year. Strict enforcement Jimbo...
Don't go into the ocean...
Don't people usually widely disregard Scout's rankings?
Thats pretty sad actually
Ez is my favorite type of RB in football. The guy has speed and size. He never goes down on first contact and can break away when he has open space.
Agree to disagree. Go Bucks!
If a team turns the ball over 4+ times in a game, they have more than a good shot of losing. Ohio State was prepared to play in the national championship and was able to make up for the mistakes. That's one game. All I'm saying is if any team turns it over 4+ times in a game against a competent opponent, I would bet on the other team.
I'm not at all taking anything away from OSU by using the word 'luck'. Football is a sport that involves it's fair share of it. We were the better team, hands down
We handled Oregon but got extremely lucky with those turnovers not biting us in the ass. Most teams don't win games when they turn the ball over that often (FSU). Oregon wins because of TOs, like you said
It's amazing how forgiving we all are when it comes to our own transgressions or those of our favorite team, and how quick we are to pass judgement on those with whom we don't see eye-to-eye.
/thread. Couldn't have said it better.
I'm sorry, but I don't see too many things that are special about either Hackenberg or Cook. They're slighty above average college starters to me. I guess its a good thing I don't get paid to scout. Also don't see Cardale going that high with only 3 starts (depending on what happens this fall of course).
Well there's obviously some reason he has dropped so far. It's not some conspiracy. It's not what us OSU fans want to see/hear, but he'll get his shot one way or another
The Lions are in the B-range with their picks, I think, between Tomlinson, Abdullah and Carter (who I know nothing about). They at least addressed 3 areas of actual need. Really happy they took Abdullah
The jets are the NFL equivalent of the island of misfit toys. Poor Devin...
It's like they just can't be consistent on both sides of the ball at the same time. We're so close to being a playoff team. Some pieces just have to be adjusted in the right way.
It's probably more the secondary than anything. I'm just not a Stafford fan. He's better than anything we've had as far back as I can remember, but he still makes so many mistakes
Anything to make Stafford/our running game look better lol
Edit: And after hearing his interview, he sounds like a well-spoken, smart kid
Gurley all day long
I unfortunately enjoy the show too. The naked part I can leave or take because it doesn't really add to the watching experience. Maybe like you said, it adds to the experience of the people taking part in it.
Anyone who think's Oregon is a 2nd tier team needs to reevaluate things. They haven't been able to win the big one yet but they've been in contention for the past 5+ years. If being in the top 5 year in and year out makes you 2nd tier then...I don't know. OSU has been known to choke in a game or 2 as well but that doesn't take away from their accomplishments.
Regarding the video, I'm not sure I would have included Bryon's dropping of the ball near the goal line in the colored, celebratory part. It stood up as a TD but wasn't a smart choice.
I'll never buy the "he's only 18" excuse. Sure, kids can slip up and say stupid things but getting into fights/drugs etc. aren't acceptable at that age. They fully understand the consequences of their decisions. Mature 18 year olds walk away. Immature ones don't. Especially when kids in these situations are offered something most only dream of.
Disclaimer: This isn't directed at EGW, just recruits in generals- and I know many will disagree
Seems to have maturity issues though. I hope he can straighten everything out
He sure does have caricature...
