I highly doubt there was an agreement made with Clark that he must develop to expectations in order to keep his offer. And someone better coming along is exactly what happened, you're just choosing to paint a pretty picture around it. But you're exactly right that the staff had no business accepting his commitment as a HS freshman.

Ask Danny Clark. The ramifications are that the family hates you and the high school coaching staff isn't very fond of you, either. Oh, and that the recruit's younger brother will be playing at Alabama instead of Ohio State.

Yeah, it's fake, but it's still hilarious that Michigan/Patterson is getting dragged through the mud over this. Mission accomplished. Just glad it didn't happen to one of our players!

So I did a little research on TV ratings of playoff and BCS, and it certainly seems like the sport has only gotten more popular since we switched to a playoff, at least at the top end.  In the last 5 years of the playoff versus the last 5 years of the BCS, I averaged out the top 3 games' (playoff games for the playoff era, and title game/best two NY5 games for the BCS era) TV ratings:

Playoff: 12.72

BCS: 11.5

Does this create worse ratings for lesser games? Maybe, but I'd much rather watch more football between great teams than more football between good/average teams, and the ratings seem to suggest I'm not the only one who feels this way.  There has never been national buzz about bowl games outside the NY5 games, so that hasn't changed. What's changed is that there's probably less buzz around non-playoff NY5 games, and that's not a bad thing IMO.

Well, there are two questions here:

HAS COLLEGE FOOTBALL LOST ITS MOJO?  No, just like the NFL isn't going anywhere. I'd have to look at the ratings, but I'm betting these are the two most popular sports in America by a large margin.

Do you recall a time when there was less buzz nationally?  Yeah, just about every offseason. It's the offseason and honestly there was a ton of national buzz about the transfer portal stuff and I've heard Phil Steele projections and playoff expansion just like I do every year. Playoff expansion is inevitable as it would be great for the game - and that will create more buzz as you will have your usual suspects coupled with some cinderella opportunities.

College football got worse with a playoff? That's a bad take, IMO.

It looks like they also made up a quote from Oregon head coach, then go on to say "Oregon fans can't take a joke". So they've openly admitted they're trolling. And if you look at their other tweets, they live for the drama they create. It's fake, folks.

So are we to assume that LSU is trying to cover up/ignore illegal benefits or something? In which case they really are living in Baton Rouge, and in which case that's not a good thing for OSU.  I can't imagine LSU 247 doing all this if nothing fishy was going on - and if something fishy is going on, that's probably not good for OSU's chances with Ricks as the chances of LSU getting in trouble are probably slim.

I have 2 kids as well. So okay, maybe not half our lives, but definitely enough to warrant investing in a mattress.

Comment 06 Jul 2019
If you want to go box spring, definitely go Original Mattress Factory. The brand names like Sealy, Serta, etc are not built to last and the springs go bad rather quickly. I think I've given up on box spring, though. Just doesn't do it for me. Going for Tempurpedic or a highly rated knockoff next time around, but I'm a firm believer that you get what you pay for in this world. We spend half of our lives in bed, might as well invest in it.

Still don't get Buckeye614. He claims to know a lot about what the coaching staff is thinking, but also claimed that he didn't have any sources, so I'm not sure how he expects his credibility to not take a hit.

Download the YouVersion bible app. There are plans devoted to any topic you can think of, depression and relationships included. This is the easiest way for me to connect with God's word as it's very difficult for me to simply read scripture and gain much from it. This app has been a lifesaver (literally) for me.

Do you have sources or don't you? Are they close to the program or are they families/friends of recruits? I know much of my skepticism stems from how you present what you claim to know. As an unestablished insider who came out of nowhere, how are we supposed to trust your info when it's cryptic and presented in an "I told you so" manner? You say you had info on Simon, but you never mentioned his name (or position, something) when predicting a Friday commit. Then when the Friday commit doesn't happen, you double down that Simon was it, rather than Royer who other insiders thought it would be. It all smells fishy. Fix your presentation if you want to be taken seriously (at least by me).
Comment 29 Jun 2019
This is my main beef with his comments. He's reading the info either from other insiders or social media conversations between recruits and then claiming it as his own unique prediction with no insight on where he's pulling that from.
Comment 29 Jun 2019
Let's talk about how Buckeye614 called for a commitment on Friday (in a cryptic, I-want-to-be-an-insider kind of way) and it didn't happen. Just thought he'd appreciate the attention since he likes the attention when he's right.
