At least tsun is celebrating being ranked higher than their old rival. Tsun is 20 and undefeated App State is 22.
Sparty13, has that QB been born yet?
Damn. I already cancelled BTN since the Miami game is done. Thanks for the heads up.
So tsun will have another recruiting class of 35? With all those large classes, do fans expect a better chance to keep a few good players? Those percentages worked for Bama back in the days that they over recruited.
Could there be something too embarrassing even for the ZS podcast? I’d have to tune in for that.
Ah, the free agency portal. 247 and Rivals need to take the portal list to another level and list the early graduates in backup roles who were once top recruits. That may be a new recruiting pool for 1 or 2 spots each year.
USA Today has Toledo higher than Texas A&M, Miss State, Ole Miss, Kentucky, Vanderbilt & Tennessee.
Who do you want to win?
Is Pryor in the portal the reason for Andrew’s shocked face emoji?
^^This. SEC loss to another SEC team is only half a loss for SEC teams because they’re all so good. A close game, but loss to another SEC power team is like half a win. Again, because SEC.
Wasn’t Andrew Luck’s father the QB at St Ignatius in Cleveland, OH, a college QB, and P5 Athletic Director at WVU and elsewhere? Is it possible Andrew Luck had other guidance, coaching and mentoring than just Harbaugh?
Yeah, too bad that place is no longer Zekes.
That’s about worst case for Buckeyes. ESPN will say a LSU narrowly losing to Bama, is equal to a win in any other conference, which could keep LSU ahead of OSU and OU.
Also, why is Miss St ranked again? Feels like SEC is guaranteed 7 spots in top 25 so after teams that legitimately belong in ranking, they just pick a name from a hat.
Someone may have data showing how long recruitments last, I thought it takes a full cycle for assistant coaches to fill their pipeline, leading to big recruiting wins a year later. It takes time to build relationships. Sure, there are a few cases where top recruits follow a coach, and there are a few cases where top recruits make a late decision, but for I suspect most top recruits commit after a long recruitment.
OSU backups were ranked higher as recruits than the FAU starters, some OSU backups will play on Sundays, and OSU backups play better competition in practice than FAU starters do. OSU should not concede 21 points to FAU no matter who is on the field. There are things to work on.
Comparing JK Dobbins to LieDown Ross? That's harsh.
Cool graphics for all programs. Quick glance shows Michigan’s glory days were long, long ago, when they played—and include in their win totals—Ann Arbor High School, Carlisle (a high school for native Americans coached by Pop Warner), Grand Rapids High School (not even a school team, but a pick up team of high school kids), and downtown athletic clubs of Detroit and Cleveland. And this was before Henry Ford starting maki g Cars (1903), before the forward pass was invented (1906), before WWI, and before electricity was in the majority of homes (1925).
Maryland is Penn State’s rival, right? That rivalry could get interesting.
^^^Sounds like a reality show: When blue bloods marry hot, crazy hillbillies.
When is Gleitman announcing? Is he making a video? What hats will be on the table? Can we hire that kid to point at the 11W hat?
When a player moves up, other slide down to make room. I expect a few bumps, a few dips, and a similar overall score.
Oberlin! It’s appropriate, since they’re last Ohio team to beat Ohio State —back in 1921.
And the Buckeyes should play Oberlin the weekend before the ttun game. Good choice too because Citadel is booked with Bama through the century.
Plus, the B1G can be politically and socially correct if Oberlin has
players “contributors” who don’t identify with any gender. Gus Johnson would be awesome with the different pronouns
Well, ttun includes wins over high schools in their win totals, so it seems to be ok.
I heard Ryan Timmons is dating Meg.
