I remember the days of my buddies getting that drunk. I'm told I have had plenty of days like that myself, but I have no recollection of it so I'm suspicious. Now that I'm over 30, I'm probably gonna be hungover just from watching that video.

Now that I'm 32, I just appreciate the fact that the OP's statement is absolutely true for me and I assume when I hit 50, yours will be as well.  Cuz if I kept going like I was going........................wooooh.

Day ranking is funny, (get returning wins and all) because Day is the coach with 4th highest odds today to win THE next National championship!

Yes, but that doesn’t mean they won’t still re-sign him for less money. Also, they declined his 2020 option, so he’s still on the team for this season.

So when the college kids are working out with the (ex)NFL guys, are the kids and their families paying these guys?  Or is it a pay it forward thing?  If the latter, I’d be curious to how they get selected, through relationship or other.

As per usual, any story these days that begins with "Florida man/woman" promises to be bizarre. This link didn't disappoint in any way. 

The top 32 list this early is a joke, but the one I found interesting is number 25: Donovan Peoples-Jones. Has he really done enough to be considered first round material, or is this like Rashan Gary this year where he was a huge recruit and the pros will take a run at him early due to that and not due to lack of actual stats?

I have not been impressed with DPJ at michigan so far. I view him the same way I viewed Gary and Peppers. So far there has been an awful lot of sizzle, but not a lot of steak. Fortunately for him, getting a lot of hype at michigan gets you drafted in the first round without ever having to actually be good at football in college. It just amazes me that there isn't more talk about Nico Collins. Its hard to use stats for guys that play in such an anemic offense but to watch the two guys play, its pretty clear who the better receiver is.

MB12, hype does a lot for people these days, not only in sports, and especially with social media.

There’s talented folks overlooked everyday as hype machines rage on.  I find it interesting to see who’s left standing when the cream eventually rises to the top, in particular in sports.

I feel like Chase Young could be the Rashan Gary of next years draft.

As in, not a ton of production/stats in college and still living off the hype of his high school ranking.

Though I hope that’s not the case.

HS
acBuckeye's picture

I see what you're saying, but Young didn't take entire halves of games off like Gary did. Still Young's motor could probably be a little higher. I will give him a pass though bc offenses became laser focused on him after Bosa went down last year. Had Nick been healthy all year, Young would've feasted in one-on-ones.

HS
3ydncloudofdust's picture

I was excited going into last season to see what Chase would do. But as you point w/o Bosa, everything changed. The only area I was critical of Chase was at times he’d over pursue, or be too aggressive and as a result, he would not seal the edge and leave guys like Werner exposed. We know he’s there to get the QB, but when he can’t he needs to shutdown the edge. Let’s face it, he’s going to be getting double teamed a lot this coming season.

Young's production last season was pretty damn solid. I actually think his issues are the polar opposite of Gary's. He tends to overpursue and take himself out of the play at times (which was a problem for him early in the season last year but he improved in that area as the season went on). Young doesn't seem to have issues playing with a low motor the way Gary did at times.

Gary had 9.5 sacks in his entire 3 year career. Young had exactly that many sacks last year.

Day's ranking is a guess since there is really no data to rank him with. It would have to be based on all things being equal as far as assistant coaching and talent on the team and not where the team is expected to finish as far as ability goes. Just like our recruiting there is a lot of wait and see.

HS
ANOTHERMICHIGANLOSS's picture

I earnestly believe Ryan Day will prove to be a great head coach, but the reality is he's not great yet, mostly because he hasn't really had a chance to be, outside of those three games when he really wasn't the head coach.

Kevin, with all due respect (and I have a ton of respect for the writers on 11W), I'm so tired of this take.  Day was notified about 5 days before fall camp began that he had to step in and take over.  He lead the team through fall camp, where real coaching happens.  Meyer couldn't even do so much as make a phone call to anyone in the program during that period.  He spent a month really being the head coach, and had the team prepared going into the season.  He lead the team back from a deficit on the road (don't give me neutral site BS) at TCU for a win, and the team went to Happy Valley during Meyers first game back and they did it again.  This didn't all happen because Meyer was at practice for the three weeks leading up to those games.  It happened because of what was done in fall camp.  Being on the sideline during a game is the easier part of being a coach.  It's the preparation leading up to game time (yeah, and the ability to make in-game adjustments) that separates coaches from mediocre and great.  

HS
Kevin Harrish's picture

What he did and accomplished is undeniably impressive, but it's also not the same thing as being the full-time head coach. He did all of that by maintaining Meyer's culture, Meyer's way of doing things, Meyer's assistants (two of which had head coaching experience), with the full that Meyer would be back. He should absolutely get props for what he did – especially navigating fall camp – but it's not the same thing as having complete control of a team and a coaching staff from start to finish. His job at that point was to just keep the ship going straight, and to his credit, he did a damn good job.

ANOTHERMICHIGANLOSS's picture

This is true, looking at the grand scope of a head coach responsibility.  I guess it's how we viewed the description of head coach.  I was looking more within the confines of when he was actually assuming head coaching duties.  We are in wait and see mode on how he will handle everything outside of that window, building staff, recruiting an entire class, navigating the season, etc.  Which is why when I read that CBS article yesterday I understood the ranking.  So far so good, and I think he has already built a hungry staff.  

HS
Kevin Harrish's picture

Yeah, he did undeniably well when he had the reins in that specific circumstance, he just didn't have to really do enough for him to be much higher on this list than he already is, in my opinion. Don't get me wrong, I think he's going to be great, but he hasn't actually proven that yet, so it's hard to just blindly toss him up there among the best, especially for national writers. That would be almost irresponsible.

RunEddieRun1983's picture

Chase Young really is the prototype of what a pass rusher is in 2019. Easy to see why he's going to be so coveted come the 2020 NFL Draft.

Urban Meyer left an incredible legacy. 12/4/18 Ryan Day begins his.

Between 2015 and 2017 in New Mexico, there were 11 cases of the plague in humans, including one death. Paul Ettestad, a public health veterinarian for the New Mexico state health department, says prairie dogs are particularly vulnerable to plague. If a whole colony gets the illness, the bacteria amplify.

Most of the NM plague cases have been confined to northern New Mexico. Hanta virus is more of a problem down here in the southern part of the state. That said, when my dog and I go on walks, I won't let him poke his nose into squirrel and gopher burrows because that's an invite for the fleas at the entrance of the holes to jump on him and me. Frightful diseases, but common sense precautions can go a long way.

Chase Young will never go #1 overall next year. Mainly because the three QBs will probably have the best shot at going first. Arizona is currently deciding between Tua and Hebert as we speak...

HS

Lol if Arizona is drafting number 1 overall again next season and they take yet ANOTHER QB they truly are one gigantic clusterfuck of an organization lol. I'd almost consider pulling an Eli Manning and demanding a trade if I was Tua at that point if that actually comes to fruition.

I have set my expectations low for this season due to Urban leaving and Ryan Day having never been an actual head coach.  Filling in for Urbs for 3 games is not something to bet the family farm on as an indicator as to head coaching prowess.  The college football head coaching landscape is littered with stories of success as well as dismal failure.  Obviously I am hoping for the former big time, but I am not willing to up my expectations until at least a season rolls by.  So many awesome assistant coaches have gone on to flourish, but so many others have fallen off the abyss of failure.  He has all of the characteristics of a fantastic coach... but only time and results on the field will tell!

Ryan Day is a bright driven man and has been set up perfectly, his first two seasons should be tremendous i.e. 11-2, 13-1 area and then the ACTUAL player development by HIS staff for HIS recruits will be completely in play. At which point I actually expect him to lead us to a title in either year 3 or year 4! Here is hoping that it is his second one!
