Negative.  Gotta add that endzone Yardage in there. He Kicks from the 42 then it has to cover 42 yards plus the extra 10 to get to the back of the endzone to the goal posts.

Ill never feel comfortable with a recruit that lists Duke or Kansas in his top schools.  Heres hoping Thad can pull off some recruiting magic.  Just wish he hadn't visited for the Iowa game...

I'd have to agree that the definition should fall somewhere between 3 and 4, while also encompassing 5. When you promise a player a scholarship the only things that should keep him from receiving the full 4 years of schooling should be contingent on that player's actions.  This would include but is not limited to academics, legal issues, and team rules violations.  I really don't understand the process enough to point fingers at specific coaches, but I think once you offer a scholarship it should be upheld regardless of how the recruit pans out.  That is one of the inherent risks of recruiting, and is also why the universities pay the coaches so much to recruit the correct players.

I definitely agree with the article I feel like Im watching Terrel Pryor HS higlight videos.  The way Gibson runs though is more RG3, just ridiculous looking track speed.  Seems like the real deal.  Get after em Urban.

I don't have a horse in this race...so naturally I will have to cheer for the team with the best hermit crab..."Marshawn Pinch."  Have to cheer for the Seahawks because this is real life.

Tough to say I'd personally give up my senior spring and everything that comes along with it (skip days, graduation ceremonies, senior prom, etc). But you have to respect the sacrifices that these kids make to better themselves on the football field and in the classroom.  I'm not sure if they have measured or tracked the effect of getting into a college classroom a semester early, but it has to be so nice for these kids to get all their academics/scheduling (a way underrated pain in the ass!) out of the way before the fall, when the focus is so heavily weighed on football.

Only slightly related...where are we on Raekwon McMillan nicknames?  I'm wondering if going "the Chef" route is just too obvious?  I feel like the possibilities are endless. 

Also watch out for Sam Hubbard.  Seen the guy play down in Cincy and he moves like someone half his size.  A little skinny for LB at the moment but beef him up and he will be a beast.

Great to hear stories like Turner.  Kid really sounds like he turned it around after quite the wild ride.  Hope he and all of the guys on this list kill it wherever they end up.

I'm pretty sure Fickell has been on the defensive staff since 2002...and you are going to say hes not a winner? Id say that span saw arguably one of the greatest consecutive years of defensive college football in the history (Im biased...deal with it).  Lets also not forget which position group he coached last year and how that group faired.  I think its wise to take a step back and look at the facts before we start demanding people's heads.

A league minimum salary beats a senior year with a career ending injury any day.  I never have a problem with young athletes trying to cash in on their athletic gifts while they still can.  That unfinished degree will still be there when they are done in the League.

Heacock did have Urban on his staff at Illinois State in the early 90's so there is definitely a connection there.  I wouldn't be at all surprised if he was brought on in some capacity more than his current consultant role.  You have to think Urban would want a tireless recruiter at is co-DC position though.  Especially to fill the Vrabel void.
