So basically, we didn’t lose anyone we had a realistic chance of getting? I wonder if Ogunbiyi’s commitment will have any affect on Rodgers’ interest in Georgia?
Agreed! I think that Midwest kids are great OL prospects. Skill players need to be checked out nation wide but give me a grinder with a bit of an attitude any time on the OL.
Probably forgot to add Lejond back to the total...
I assume that by “kicks” you are referring to punts?
We already have two talented WRs committed in 2020. It would be difficult to add two 5 stars also, IMO. Fleming is a definite take but Jarrett doesn't seem to be worth the hassle (at least from the way he has been portrayed in articles here).
Antwuan Jackson not in the 3 deep at DT/NT is another head scratcher. He was highly regarded and recruited coming out of high school and again at the JUCO level. Looks like he won't play much in his RS/Junior year.
Why the coaches don't move Browning outside is beyond me. He isn't comfortable playing inside and has not played well there. What is the harm in trying him outside?
We sure can't slip much by you, can we Kev...;)
Let's not totally kid ourselves...the talent level on those 49er teams could have made a lot of QBs look good.
Also, the teams aren't going to tip their hand on which player they are going to draft. If they have to trade up to get him it would drive up the "price" or would allow another team to trade up and steal the player away.
Is he pitching baseball or cricket??? ;)
Good, let the Raiders waste their top 5 pick instead of the Cardinals...
It wasn't so much JTB keeper from 3 &1, 2, 3...it was JTB keeper on 1 &10, 2 &8, etc.
Haskins will make GMs look really bad if they pass on him. I hope that the Cardinals trade down if they really want Murray because I think that it is a good possibility that they could still get him if they do that.
There is so much talk about the "air raid" offense that the Cardinals are going to implement. That offense is a pass-first offense and the type of passes thrown are similar to what Haskins threw at Ohio State. The only advantage for Murray is the splits of the OL in the air raid offense might give him some lanes to throw in because of his short stature.
That was the real head-scratcher last year. Very few offenses could consistently move the ball on us but big plays were way too plentiful.
We weren't comparing players...we were listing the number of Majors each player won. Phil could be included in the conversation with Palmer and Player...Vijay, not so much.
Hopefully the new coaching staff is better at recognizing players who should be on the field. I also think that the simplified scheme will help the defense play faster. It can't get much worse than last year and the year before, can it?
Either that or he is putting together a transfer list to use if he is ever “recruited over”...
Under your train of thought, we just lost a QB (Baldwin) who has thrown as many game time passes as the walk-on (0) and Martell who threw a total of 28 game time passes. So we gained a QB (Fields) who has thrown almost twice as many game time passes as the other three combined. We should be in excellent shape...
What cracked me up the most was the Purdue video that you posted. Not the video itself, but the score below and the fact that Rutgers was the 15th ranked team in the country!!!
You didn't see the sarcasm font or get that I was taking a subtle dig at SEC powerhouse LSU?
Don't deflect, BH7, you asked me to list the 5-6 golfers in this year's Master's that had three or more majors to their resume, not only ones who were in their prime. Palmer was nearing the end of his run when Nicklaus came on the scene. Take your medicine and walk away.
Disision 2 is only permitted to have 36 players on scholarship and Division 3 has no athletic scholarships. A D3 player would basically have to apply to a college, be accepted, and then walk on. A D2 player on a scholly could probably enter the TP, but why would he if he is playing at a D2 school? Probably not good enough for a D1 school to use a scholarship on.
Day's "Frosh QB" this past year was Fields. Day basically took one QB this past recruiting calendar and it was Fields. No coach can foresee losing two QBs to transfers.
You mean like LSU, right???
There needs to be one big change by the NCAA in regards to the transfer portal. There needs to be a "window of opportunity" set up where any player who wants to enter the TP has to do so in a predetermined time frame (perhaps after the bowl games?). Or if another time frame works better, go with that time frame. That way a team has the opportunity to replace a player that enters the TP.
I really don't get Baldwin's time frame for his transfer request. He hasn't played a live snap for 2 years. He will lose a season of eligibility unless he receives a waiver from the NCAA (likely could happen). Even if he receives the waiver how much of a chance will he have to start going to a new team and a new playbook? I believe that he should have stayed at OSU, learned from two of the best QB coaches in the country this year (not to mention being second string and one play away from being the starter), and then transferred after the season if he felt so inclined.
Someone told me there would be cake...Where is the cake???
