I agree with everything you said except one small thing. This is not entirely true.
You're protected by the first amendment to be able to express yourself without the fear of reprisal.
People think the first amendment protects you entirely with free speech. I just wanted to clarify that your free speech is protected from the government, nothing more. If Tyreke did lose scholarship offers over the shirt (and I am in no way saying he should), he could not claim free speech. However, if the government said he could not get a scholarship due to the shirt, that would be the violation of free speech.
I just wanted to clear up a very common misconception that I see very often.
Graham HS in St. Paris sure doesn't hurt either...
I know you are limiting it to taking a job from a starter barring injury, but maybe there was a reason that player was the starter- he was better?
Anyways, how about the younger guys who beat out older guys for the starting positions? JT Barrett, Darron Lee, Mike Weber, Michael Jordan, Isaiah Prince, Taylor Decker, Dontre Wilson, and Sam Hubbard are all guys who Meyer had starting as underclassmen over older guys. These are just guys off the top of my head, as I'm sure the list can be doubled, if not tripled.
Andrew, I need to know. Is it pronounced Wood-Bay or Wood-Bee?
I keyed in on White during warmups for the spring game. He definitely impressed me and I felt that he belonged in that unit (no way saying he wouldn't with the DB's).
Why do so many assume Babb will land at tOSU? Is it because he is at the top of the Buckeye's WR list or something else?
Comitted to LSU.
Do they though? Antjuan Simmons, Danny Clark, Todd Sibley, and Bruce Judson were all expected and just in the most recent class. In the previous class, Kareem Walker, Terrell Hall, and George Hill were all expected when Tristen Wallace was the only unexpected. Actually, contrary to your statement, most decommits often come by NO surprise.
Jamie Wood and Duron Carter are also two more I expected more out of.
Jamaal Berry, Ricquan Southward and Cam Burrows were three guys I was super excited about that never panned out.
The only thing impressive about Manley was his height. He was a non-factor defensively so much, in fact, the coach took him out on defense towards the end of halves. He ended up with 12 points, but I think half of those points came late in the 4th quarter when the game was already decided. He doesn't move real well or jump at all. I could have just seen him on a bad day, but if that was his typical day, I don't expect him to contribute for UNC for a long time.
Goodwin impressed me. He had 34 points and 13 rebounds against a decent Garfield Heights team. He scored from anywhere on the court and has a knack for positioning to get the rebound.
