If this is true (I haven't checked to verify), it doesn't speak well to ​TTUN's player development, or the ability to recruit to fill the needs of their Off./Def. schemes.

Comment 11 Jun 2020

The game is on now. Anyone who thinks Day can snap his fingers and be as good as Meyer is wrong. He can apparently pay recruits as well as Meyer, but can he organize and develop the way Meyer did? We'll start finding out this year or next year.

Harbaugh is right; his team is a lot closer than most people think.

Delusional thinking at best.

It might be tough to get rid of a contract-heavy 4x B1G COY (2002, 2004, 2009, 2015). 
He's gone 162-104 (97-75 conf.), and has finished in the AP top 25 in 3 of the last 5 years.

Sir Mix-a-lot had more than one hit, plus a bunch of other "cult" songs that remain popular.
Posse on Broadway was also a top 100 hit.
My Hooptie and Beepers weren't top 100, but most OG rap fans know these songs.

The NFL has become an RBBC (running back by committee) league for about the last 7-10 years. You have your "workhorse" back that is in for 1st and 2nd down, and then a 3rd down specialist who can pass protect or go catch passes from the backfield. New England has really perfected this approach using a bunch of guys over the last decade.
Having said that, RB won't be the dominant first round choice anymore if you can pick up 2 guys later in the draft to do the same job equally well.

Cam Martinez playing both ways as RB and DB?

Steele Chambers is the man, at least for the rest of Spring.

Zach Evans was dismissed from his HS team and released from his NLI by Georgia because of character issues. He's talented, but is he worth the headaches he'll likely cause?

Too bad Brian Snead F'd up here. He's a JuCo at Iowa Western CC.

Morgan Ellison (6'1", 228) from Pickerington is a JuCo as well:  http://247sports.com/Player/Morgan-Ellison-88935/

Comment 27 Feb 2020

NPF is kind of obvious as he will get a starting nod at tackle. He'll use the reps to put himself in position for the draft ...

Nobody seems to be talking much about Josh Proctor. I think he'll step up big this year as our starting safety.

Comment 27 Feb 2020

I don't know that I really hate any bands, but ones that get turned off when on the radio are:

Jimmy Buffett - I know people love him, but I just can't get into his stuff for some reason.

The Doors - No thanks.

"Newer" Green Day songs - Dookie was a decent album, but American Idiot was just their platform for pretentious political commentary. I don't like it during election season, and I really don't want it in my choice of music.

Recent "artists" like: Justin Beiber (general ass clown), Billie Eilish (very overrated, too dark/sinister with the IDGAF attitude, etc.),  Dua Lipa (hot body, poor musician), Miley Cyrus (a human trainwreck), etc.

Anyone with a plethora of face tattoos like 6ix9ine, Lil Xan, etc. (Note: I am not as put off by Post Malone, but he still looks like a prison inmate)

K-Pop singers/groups like BTS, iKon, BigBang, etc.

GB1966: No. We discussed this in an earlier thread about 40 times.

The difference between a 4.40 and a 4.60 is about 6 feet (yards) at the end of the dash. If a back's running a 4.70, then the difference  between him and the guy running 4.4 is closer to 9 feet (3 yards). That's awfully significant in a "game of inches".
