Now is when we need our own John U. Bacon. He'd get the story and tell it really well. Might be better after Beck leaves though.
Hilliard is a redshirt freshman. Too early to say injury issues with him.
Brutal take but not altogether untrue. You will incur the wrath of many on here. I'm not one but still.
But then again, Cardale Jones, Curtis Grant, Dunn.........
You may be right with the transfer numbers. the WR group for example is huge.
If you don't want to speculate that is fine. I don't have a problem with it as long as it isn't (this guy needs to go cause he sucks).
Though I stuck to actually naming only 5th years and early entrants.
If you are referring to his "all should be considering other options now" line I kind of agree.
The fact that he is speculating on names in general. Not as much. I think it is fair to take educated guesses though I disagree with quite a few names in his assessment this early.
WR seems very talented but very inexperienced. names like Dixon, Clark, and Stump may be premature as it seems like a whoever steps up plays kind of thing.
Alabi has only his classmates and 3 5th year (will be) Sr's in front of him one of whom's career is already done. Seems premature as well.
I think you are looking at 5th years and then whomever can't get out of the bottom of the depth chart are likely transfer candidates. Seems a bit early to say that about some of the guys you name though you may ulitmately be right.
I count 9 5th year seniors for 2017 according to Eric's chart. One of those is Munger so he is already out.
That leaves 8, that could be told you got your 4 years but you won't be on scholarship anymore. One of those is Barrett and if he wants to come back he'll get to. Now you are at 7 spots that could open..
One is Conley, he's probably NFL bound.
One is Billy Price, he plays if he stays.
You are left with Lisle, Sprinkle, Lewis, Hill, and Worley. If they get "let go" you have 5 spots plus Conley and maybe Price. If they both go you have 7 from the 5th years that could open up space. Add the 6 Sr's. and McMillan and you have 14 spots. 15 if Barrett goes pro. That is really tight.
I could see a transfer or two for playing time and injuries happen but I don't see much more. Going to make this very interesting. I'd hate to lose out on the players we are in on due to numbers but I think Meyer will earn his money this year with all the hard choices and conversations.
What the hell does a MSU bagmen bring? A roll of nickles, carton of cigarettes and a pre-licked lollipop?
This would not surprise me. However, if he goes, we'd better actually land 2 of Dobbins, Akers, or Harris or the flirtation will cost us a good one.
A little disappointed. This was completely unneccessary.
Wow. That's on par with meeting the duck that played Zach's duck that was killed by drilling at Bayside High on that Saved by the Bell episode.
You should consider yourself blessed.
Extensive Plastic Surgery...something like this oughta do it.
Can the Buckeyes beat the Lady Vols
since you qualified the Vols and not the Buckeyes I am left to assume that it is the men who are playing. Even if what Lyle said is true I really see the Lady Vols having a tough time with Giddens inside along with Lyles and Harris athleticism. And if Loving gets going.......
WHOOO. I see a Battle of the Sexes playout that goes quite differently than Bobby Riggs' rigged exhibition.
I like them. But I'm a Bills fan. And the Patriots are pure evil.
I suppose it makes more sense than cricket, which is basically a cooler version of baseball?
Ugh. Between this and your love of cats.....
.......I just don't know, DJ. Besides, have you seen a cricket boxscore. It's practically an alien language.
Here's one.....Get a Squatty Potty.
This would suck. Not for him as their OL is great but I hate the Cowboys and why do all my favorite players end up places like there or the Patriots?
Son of a Bitch. How did I miss that? I read it like 6 times looking for something. I skipped right over the stuff before his name.
Bellaire is in Houston. You'd think that with Louisiana next door that LSU would have great pull with recruits down here but there isn't necessarily one. Not that nobody good goes there but I'd be much more worried about him if he was in the deep South.
We might just have a shot here.
I've always liked Ohio State and LSU since in was little.
Where's this kid from? Always liking LSU and if he is from the South or God forbid Louisiana, it'd be one tough pull.
Like our chances more if he's from out west or up North.
Agreed, but as long as you can port your season, rosters, RTTS and such to the new version, it wouldn't be a big deal.
He's exactly right. You can take off the Dynamic Difficulty setting. I did and by messing with the sliders I've found a happy medium.
I still have the majority of my hits go to the opposite way (like 42% of them) but I am in my age 25 season (so 8 in) and i have a little over 5 years MLB service. Stupidly I've had only 2 full injury free seasons. Every other year I've broken my wrist diving back to a bag (5X) and hurt my leg once to go on the 60 day DL each time.
However, I'm a career .350 or so hitter, and I have 123 career homers. If i can stay healthy I'm only getting better I should walk into the HOF, but not with silly video game numbers. Something like a .340-.350 hitter (this is pretty high for now a days) and between 500-600 homers. I steal bases with quite a bit of frequency as well. I'm loving it.
I hope the next version brings back old parks and the ability to set them as default even in RTTS so I can morph my guy over and play in some of the old places (Ebbets, Polo Grounds, etc...)
Did you miss the font?
I cannot fathom who he is blowing in order to be the president of the BCS and badmouth a playoff to keep bowl cronyism going and yet still end up as the president of the Playoff.
Just astounding. Perhaps we are looking at our greatest politician and just don't know it.
I will be hungover the next day though looking for football to watch.
And there will be none, unless you are referring to NFL. College will have you waiting another day.
