MEMBER SINCE   May 20, 2011

Grew up near the S&G course over on McCoy Rd. My grandfather was head of Neurology and a surgeon at Riverside Hospital. He knew Woody and would assist the team med wise. Ended up out West in my teens and fell in love with the mountains. Graduated from Park City HS and the University of Utah. I work in technology supporting Gov't accounts. Happily married to a Duck fan and living in Denver with our two sons (who are not Duck fans). GO BUCKS!

Kiper referencing this past SB to support drafting Tua vs Chase is flawed.  More SBs have been won by great defenses vs great offenses. The 2015 Broncos are a perfect example. That defense led by DE, (Von MIller), was incredible.  You had an offense led by a HOF QB that was ranked 16th that year.

Yep...their consistency is for shit. They'll call a ticket tack foul on one end and then someone gets mugged on the other end and no foul is called.

I tend to agree with you.  I really don't think the amount of WR talent is scaring away RB prospects.  Also, if I'm being recruited as an RB, I would prefer going to a program in a colder climate where the ability to run the ball is at a premium when the weather turns bad. Recruiting is cyclical...you have good classes and bad.  People were throwing Coach Stud under the bus when he had a some big misses.  Now the guy can't miss.

I absolutely agree with Ramzy that Gronk rejected OSU based on the lack of TE attempts but that was all about Tressel's offensive philosophy and not the amount of talent in other position groups.

I'm not sold on Clemson's RZ defense.  If JK catches those two passes, where he was wide open, then we are talking 3 out of 4 RZ TDs in the first half.

I think Joe picks them apart Monday.  Clemson's only chance is to get to Burrow via blitzing or the LSU receivers/RBs start dropping TD passes.
