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.

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.

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.

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...)
