No offense, but the "I'll trust the staff" is my least favorite of all the overplayed statements about recruiting.

You've got your "stars don't matter"

"In-state kids want it more"

"This kid is criminally underrated"

But when you just say "I'll trust the coaches," it removes all sense of critical thinking.  The coaches didn't turn to this kid until other options went South, so what does this statement even mean?

This link has Sainstril, Steuber and Uche listed as starters, all of whom I have higher ranked players in their spot.  You literally argued that 2 of those guys should be removed because they probably won't start, then you post an article that projects them to start.

Your roster predictions are out there for your team and mine are for my team.  We'll see who's closer.

"Tru Wilson — Harbaugh noted on BTN Live — has the inside track to be the starter, as that’s the position he currently holds."

The fact that you're arguing for someone the coach has in at least 3rd, and still making the argument that I'm putting backups in as starters seems hypocriticaL.

Also, your comment history says you want to have civilized discussions but then you downvote everything I say.

If we're counting freshman I could also easily put Garrett Wilson in our top 4 WRs which would raise our average.

I could put in the #1 or #3 DT who are "widely expected" to at least split reps with Cornell and Landers

I already said I'll update the freshman if they do in fact start, but I don't think it's as far off as you say.  The latest info from B1G media days is OSU is looking to run a LB rotation anyway.

Another Update:

- Added a 4th WR per a request, which I think makes sense.

- Switched out some ttun starters per Maine's request (even though a couple of them are neck-and-neck, I gave the benefit of the doubt that the higher rated players are starting.

- Switched Smith for Cooper, which was an oversight on my part.

- Overall, not too much effect on the averages, the average position ranking is still about a 25 spot difference.

Are you an OSU fan or ttun? Haha

I didn't put any freshman in there, I think it's silly to say someone is going to start and they haven't been through 1 fall practice yet.  

I can toss the other guys in and see what happens.

It's just crazy to think that of Wade has a good year he could realistically go pro and we would have let the #2 CB go thru his entire OSU career without starting.  I'm sure they'll find a way to have him on the field often but just an interesting thought.
