This. Never understood why EA doesn’t take this approach in 2020. You know if they released the game with random rosters, logos, coaches, etc that there would be a file within a week, which would take the responsibility off of them.
Currently have the number 1 ranked recruiting class in 2021 by a wide margin. I think that answers your question in itself if Day is relying too much on the portal or not to obtain talent
Would love for a Notre Dame fan to read this just to see their head explode as they scream “WhAt AbOuT uS” (insert spongebob meme here)
Took a couple classes in Ramseyer, one in the basement. I can even remember where the bathroom was, but cannot remember anything about it.
That was 6-7 years ago though, so it’s possible there has been some renovations done since then.
Let’s touch on some points we are seeing here...
1. Those saying Gaffney has no chance at playing professionally have no idea what the landscape of professional basketball looks like overseas. If you play D1 basketball, you can find a place to play professionally overseas, regardless of what program you played at
2. Yes, it would be nice to add a point guard, but not necessarily a grad transfer. CJ is the point guard for next season and he will play 32-35 minutes a game. Washington is capable of handing it when he needs a breather or gets in foul trouble. The most ideal situation would be to get a transfer who has 2 years of eligibility (Sit 1, play 2), like Jackson was when he came in. That way someone is available to step in when Jackson leaves.
3. “Why are so many guys transferring? Something must be wrong with this program!”
This is happening across the entire country, not just at OSU. We live in a transfer culture, where players are encouraged to seek other opportunities. By this time next year we will probably have a 1 time transfer free waiver. Nothing is wrong
Still a possibility that there would be additional scholarship available to get Towns and a PG.
Depends on what is going on with Gaffney and if Kaleb turns pro. If Towns commits, we know one of those two things is happening. If both happen, there would be an open scholarship to bring in a PG if they wanted.
And that’s not even considering the potential that some other guys might be mulling a transfer
Reminds me so much of the Rodney Hood situation. His game is similar to his, he was choosing between Duke and OSU, and heck he even looks somewhat like Rodney Hood.
Unlike that situation, let’s hope this one goes to the good guys
While we are on the topic of minor nuances....
anybody else not able to read poll comments on mobile the last month or so?
I think you’re overvaluing the compensation for Dalton. Joe Flacco, who I would say is somewhat comparable to Dalton production wise, went for a 4th round pick. Throw in the strong free agent QB class with Brady, Rivers and Mariota all available, and I would be shocked if they got better than a 4th. I understand you’re throwing in a 5th but I don’t think anyone Is giving up anything very high when they know the Bengals are in a “have to get something for him” situation
I’m with you, from an excitement and analytical standpoint. I don’t even watch live usually just DVR and watch back later. You really don’t get much from the “game” itself.
However I still think it plays 2 big roles, one for the fans and one for the players
Fans: Gives less fortunate fans the opportunity to get into the shoe for 5 bucks and take the entire family.
Players: Provides a great culminating event to spring practice. Sure you could just have a scrimmage in house without fans, but kind of hard for players to get excited about doing that
-Northwestern continues their momentum after beating Penn State and beats Minnesota
-Indiana wins two getting them in the tourney
-Buckeyes beat Purdue; Lose to Sparty again
-Iowa beats Wisconsin in Semis; Sparty beats Iowa in the championship; Sparty jumps all the way up to a 2 seed, something hardly anyone thinks is possible right now
Yikes... that’s bad.
Why can’t the secondary logo just be the Buckeye leaf? Tons of teams have victory bells, it’s not unique
Kaleb Wesson broke Maryland.
Since Mark Turgeons “Bully” comments...
-1 point victory over Minnesota (anyone who watched that game knows they should have lost)
-Lost at home to Sparty
-Lost tonight to Rutgers
No. There is a strong chance that we are going to land a really talented RB in this 2021 class, if not multiple. Would just go that route instead
I would guess you will be able to get in the door for around 200 bucks a piece. So that leaves about 350$ to make up elsewhere.
350/6 (amount of other home games)= 58.33
58.33/2= about 29 bucks a ticket.
I like the move.
I assume he's still waiting on the ruling. Based on my count, he isn't included in the 87 total the article mentioned.
I think obviously, if he does get the 6th year he will be on scholarship.
I don’t think the weather plays that big of a role. I think our coaches usually get past that quite easily with “Do you want to play in the NFL? Well you’re going to have to play in the cold weather anyway, might as well get used to it now”
I think more so it’s about some players wanting to stay relatively close to their family
It’s hard to take PFF’s number 1 ranking seriously when they go on to talk about the corners for next year and mention Banks and Brown and don’t even mention the guy that’s going to get the most snaps out of all of them, Shaun Wade
Please tell me how “calling Freshmen dumb names” could qualify as “assault”
Harrassment? Sure. Abuse? Sure. But assault? How?
I wonder if the coaches get paid to be on the coaches room broadcast or if they just look at it as a way to get exposure for recruiting. I will watch the regular broadcast live, but will be interested to hear afterwards what Hafley had to say about Clemson's offense and the things they did against us.
The most surprising part of this isn't that he's moving to DE, it's that he's moving out of a LB room that will be very thin after the 2020 season. It will lose Werner, Borland, Browning and Hilliard.
Pope and Gant have shown flashes on special teams, but still unproven on defense. Must have a lot of faith in them and the three freshmen to step up in their second year.
With Day calling plays and working with the QBs still, I like the move. He can continue to learn. All comes down to “Can Corey Dennis Recruit”
We don’t know this, but with the glowing reviews from Burrow, Haskins, and Fields, it seems like he has done a good job developing relationships, which of course is huge with recruiting. I’m optimistic
Regardless of how this played out (him being pushed out, or him leaving on his own), it’s public knowledge that Day was the one calling plays, designing the offense, and working with Fields a ton.
I guess what I’m saying is, the OSU offensive coordinator/QB coach position just needs to be an elite recruiter. Day will take care of the rest.
Will be interesting to see how big of a name gets brought in though. With Day getting all the credit for the offense (rightfully so) it might deter some guys with immediate HC aspirations.
I was thinking the same thing at first, but it seemed to work out with Herman and Houston, which causes me not to be too pessimistic about it
A lot of people think Hafley should have waited for something better to open up, but I think this was a really smart decision for his future.
1. It's a job with minimal pressure. It's a power 5 school, with decent power 5 resources, with group of 5 expectations. Not to mention the ACC is absolute garbage at the moment outside of a certain institution that is going to get dumped on in 12 days. If he wants a more high profile job, he will be considered a leading candidate if he can just get BC to 7-8 wins a season over the next couple years.
2. He saw what happened with Schiano. It only takes one year of a dreadful defense for the public's perception to change. With OSU potentially losing the top 7 players on defense (Young, Okudah, Fuller, Harrison, Wade, Hamilton, Arnette), it had to have crossed his mind that there could be a potential dropoff and the impact it could have.
