Paragraph 5 Typo alert, MSU = Wolverines?????
So now we put Justin Fields into the same system that groomed Haskins. A guy that runs like a deer, and appears to have almost as good an arm as Haskins, and he's here for at least two years. Add in Baldwin and the kid from Arizona. Toss in a few 5 star receivers for good measure. If Day is really this good, the next 4 or 5 years are going to be epic.
Exactly what Belichek looks for in a lower round wide receiver. Who else picks a quarterback from Kent State and turns him into an all pro wide receiver? And to think we had him in Cleveland. fu#%$*&@%^ing Modell.
A performance like this should be a real plus when it comes to recruiting high school kids. I got to believe they will begin to believe OSU may just be "Receivers U".
Kids from small schools and small towns get no respect. Funny, the basket in those little gyms and barns and driveways and back yards is also 10 feet up and 18 inches in diameter.
She doesn't know what she is talking about. 50 years later, I'm still trying to get over 1969 in AA.
Woody is the first and only choice.
This is complete BS. Do you think Michigan fans would have traded Patterson for Haskins last year? D you think Patterson would have been drafted ahead of Haskins? If he's so great, why didn't he opt for the draft this year if he's better than Haskinf and the QB class is so strong next year? The biggest issue with the internet and social media is that uninformed, ignorant people get instant credibility by publishing crap. Used to be, this stuff would never be published at all.
I can't believe Jalin Marshall isn't good enough to be on an NFL roster. He just needed to get away from the Jets to show what he can do. I'd love to see him in Browns Orange.
I think JH's true market value is not what _ichigan pays him. It's what someone would pay him if he was on the open market, competing with other coaches for a job. That Civic's true market value isn't $100k because someone is irrational and decides to overpay for it. It's still a $30,000 car.
College isn't for everyone. Lots of kids struggle to make it through high school. There are millions of kids out there who don't have the scholastic aptitude or desire to go to college. Of those millions, I guarantee there are thousands who are good athletes and of those thousands there are a few hundred who are elite. The AAF could give those kids a chance to play the game without having to suffer through 3 or 4 years of college.
Maybe he didn't like the pedicures he was getting in Columbus.
Give each coach one challenge per half or game to challenge a particularly egregious, insufferable, incomprehensible call. Or publish the name, address, email, and phone number (I think you kids call that "doxing?) of the entire official crew that misses the call.
Replay is used everywhere now. Why not give each side one challenge per game or half to a bad call by an official? These kinds of mistakes can be fixed on the spot.
That was the worst non call I've ever seen. Someone needs to lose their job over that, no matter who wins or loses.
Great to be an OSU fan. Panic sets in over who is the 4th string quarterback. And I loved seeing a 3rd string QB beat BAMA, et al, for the Natty, but not sure if that had ever happened before in 100+ years of college football. Lightning more often strikes twice in exactly the same spot. R E L A X.
If Barf can do a GIF of the Reaper doing O-H-I-O, He is absolutely the GOAT!
Good point Brutus. Today Finebaum, in the Alabama autopsy, said he thought a huge part of the reason Alabama lost was Saban's decision to go with mostly young, hot shot recruiters after last year as relatively inexperienced coaches and co-ordinators because he was pissed about Georgia's success last year in recruiting. Day has blended a mix of youth and experience building his staff. I hope it works.
He's not an early enrolee, but I'm excited to see Cade Stover. He sounds like a special talent.
Wilson was fun to watch. Good hands. Goes deep. Also tried to pay attention to Harry Miller at center. That kid looks very solid and looked to be ready to play now. Didn't watch the whole game, was hoping to see some of Harrison, but never saw him or heard him mentioned.
I talked last night with a friend who is a Georgia fan, lives in Athens, Ga. He says the reason Fields didn't play more was his inability to learn to read defenses. Makes some sense that this skill might not be developed well in high school, given the massive talent spread, but Fields is reportedly a smart kid and could be taught, given the right coaching. Not familiar with Ga's QB coach, but If I remember right, Kirby Smart was mainly a defensive guy. Ga's play calling kinda confirms that. Maybe that's one of the reasons he chose OSU and Ryan Day. Gonna be an interesting year.
ESPN is in the fortunate position of selling a product that lots of people crave, sports. Even idiots can sell people something they can't seem to live without. And I can't believe they actually think people watch the games because of the announcers. That'd be like favoring a restaurant because they have the best parking valet. The current team is probably the worst they have ever used.
42% Rating in Columbus? Whatever could the other 58% have been watching that was more important?
I watched just to see the band. Pricks on ABC didn't show them. Must have been at endless commercials or explaining how the floats were driven. WGAF. Did catch the Band was on NBC.
I spent some quality time over there. Best comment I saw was "This program will never go forward till it stops looking backward". Time to forget all those wins before 1900!
