I'm ready for some booms. Got the cannon loaded.
Hindsight is, and in, 2020
The boom button this weekend
Lets wear that sucker out!
I'd rather be an hour early than a minute late.
Can we set the website front page to auto-refresh every 2 minutes until tomorrow?
Exciting day today!
I know a couple of guys who are getting pretty excited right now...
I think a 38-star weekend would be, like, a record.

Remember in the Mack Brown/Texas days he'd get like 20 commitments at their Junior Day in the Spring and then basically be done for the year?

Mack was the (grand)father of the early commitment. Problem was so many wouldn’t pan out. I remember he got an kid who was first team all-state OL as a 6-5/250 junior but he never amounted to anything after he got to Texas because he couldn’t put on weight.

Yep...and Charlie Strong was very vocal about the culture it created. Once kids committed that early, in many cases, they were entitled and stopped working to get better. That’s why strong had so much attrition early on.

There are 8 OT's ranked ahead of Christman for 2021 huh? Ya ok.....
That kid is a monster and will look great in Scarlet & Gray.
Fields of Dreams
Agree fully. FWIW, he originally was ranked 22 overall in the 247 comp. I think he dropped because Rivals recently published their ratings and had a different opinion. Ultimately, it will not matter. Like you said, he will be a dominant force.
"The minute we stop expecting greatness, we become Wisconsin."
Currently, we seem to have the inside track for Styles Jr., Harrison Jr., and Ballard for WR recruiting for 2021, with Ballard being the lowest rated among them, FWIW. Do you think that Ballard, who has a very strong relationship with Hartline, would want to secure his spot in the class early with this in mind and knowing that Hartline is pretty much a beast on the recruiting trail right now?
He is lower rated by a recruiting service and how many of those people ever coached a down of football. Many times I disagree with our takes but the coaching staff watch's hours of film and are more hands on than Rivals and others. Each staff and school look for a certain talent that fits their team not a star ranking. Not only that once you get past the so called elite the next 50 or so could be ranked in any order because they are that equal. Someone has to be number 20 21 22 and so on.
Let's just get all nine of them this weekend, then Ryan and his staff can take Monday off.
Give me those Ohio booms!!!
Urban Meyer left an incredible legacy. 12/4/18 Ryan Day begins his.
He wasn't kidding about recruiting Ohio.
He had no choice but to say that about Ohio recruiting. He doesn't have a national name out there yet to pull in elite kids like Urban did. Tress was in the same boat and even in a worse way. Everyone in Ohio knows about coach Day but I bet some kids in Ohio at the time knew little about Tress from a lower level YSU. Sort of like the Mt. Union coach who has won many titles or even know where Mt. Union is located. Once he gets a couple good seasons we can go out of Ohio more because the pickings are slim some years in Ohio. I know many don't believe that but you don't follow recruiting that closely or for many years no offense to those. For that matter Woody should of recruited more national than he did but who in Hell would tell Woody that.
