Every story has 2 sides. Doesn’t mean they’re good. Fascists and nazis thought they were right. Wife beaters and rapists often think they’re baited into it. Doesn’t mean their side deserves to be heard.
I think smith is a piece of shit but cardale Jones said the same thing on the beanie and boom podcast.
The people who actually get paid to talk to these kids are saying he’s a liability. If you haven’t seen it you’re obviously not following now. Bill Greene, birm, givler, gleitman, wiltfong, etc have all said in the past year he’s not pulling his weight. Aside from doug nester I don’t think I’ve ever seen a recruit unprovoked mention him. You saw it with heistand at ND, Pittman at UG and even to a lesser degree herb hand/bedenbaugh at UT/Oklahoma.
The collective thought was he was probably not going to be retained but Day didn’t want to turn over another coach this year after defensive carnage and replacing himself with yurcich. And with how long it took him to officially bring him back I think that’s pretty solid, but sure he’s great. Let’s give him a lifetime contract since everyone thinks he’s the reason all that talent came in. And not, you know, the legendary HOF head coach.
All of those recruits either had OSU in the lead at some point or are from the area. You’re telling me they didn’t want Rasheed walker?
And pricks like yourself who can’t think of better words than butthurt are too dumb to even consider.
The don’t need to sign or get all 15 OL offered but they shouldn’t lose many to ND, PSU, or Tennessee of all places. How many other positions is that happening with?
And you’re the first one who will be on here in 2 years complaining the OL sucks. But you do you and continue thinking you’re the smartest person in the room.
He does, however, develop top end talent and is also mentioned by recruits as their best relationship and the reason they committed. When was the last time you heard that about stud.
Cool now let’s try it the other way.
Zeke Corell, Nolan rumler, doug nester, Darnell Wright, Quinn Carroll, John olmstead, Trevor Keegan. And that was just last year
2018 carman, Mays, walker
2020 Corcoran, zinter, etc
Except that’s not BK. I wonder if someone at 247 told him to take more risks but he’s not usually one to go out on a limb.
You tell Milton if he wants in he commits on the spot. Otherwise you take Robinson. Bird in hand and everything.
I think he wanted them to get Kirk, and they had a decent chance but I don’t think he was convinced. He was living in AZ (same as Kirk) at the time and so had a pretty good finger on the pulse of that one.
Hes definitely gotten some wrong but so does everyone else. I generally listen to birm, AE, BG, and wiltfong because they’re right more often than not. Givler can be good at times too.
And didn’t Harrison say he basically decided for sure the night before his commitment? People give too much grief to the guy whose job is to make educated guesses on high school kids.
You might be right. But like I said, I feel like he couched it in the idea he didn’t believe it but the sources he trusted. But I get what you’re saying.
Maybe I’m wrong but I remember him saying it didn’t make sense but he was hearing a ton of smoke about DPJ to OSU but didn’t quite believe it. But also didn’t want to discount it because DPJ didn’t really play the game.
In his recruiting question of the day earlier he dropped a sly nugget that he wouldn’t rule OSU out for ricks either. He’s a big proponent of reading between the lines so that plus BK might mean there’s something there.
Wonder what happens to Holmes since Pitt gave up their 2nd Rd pick to draft bush.
If Hubbard could get to DL size, pretty much anyone LB size can.
I’d look at what yurcich did last year with a former walk on. If you have enough talent everywhere else, you can mitigate it. Title? Probably not. But anyone who isn’t practicing revisionist history would have said the same in 2014 with Braxton and JT going down.
But if the NK is after Bran, he’d either have to die or be moving to Kings Landing for the NK to just bypass the iron islands.
I agree with this. On one hand I like to know a bit about the kids coming in, but on the other I’m just not into the let’s fake everything reality show aspect. Can’t say I wouldn’t have done the same at 18 but my dad also would have just looked at me like, really? And i probably would have stopped.
Pandora’s box man. Can’t escape the recruiting stuff now because I know it’s there. And curiosity will bring me in.
No they don’t. He practiced in December of 2016 leading up to the Clemson CFP game. He was a 2017 recruit. He could practice but not play. Which is what this was about. Educate your damn self first.
The whole comment thread is about practicing/playing in regards to bowls for early enrollees. Who cares about spring?
You said he could practice AFTER the bowl practices. He practiced during the bowl practices. Not that difficult to read. Maybe you need to read your own words.
If he flips he flips. Don’t know that I’d consider it a done deal. Still have Henry and Thomas likely in the class and in his ear. Not ideal though. And still don’t like stud.
That’s why homesick makes the most sense. His best option was being a backup here for 2 more years, getting some garbage time snaps and learning from day and then if miller beats him out, grad transfer.
E) tired of 11w polls about him starting.
No one is going to be able to find the article. I want to say it was a birm land of 10 article but I also read the same thing. Wanted to hold off on officials early if the player was committing later
