Once you get past the first 10 minutes of him rambling about philosophy and what the podcast was going to be about he actually gave some somewhat interesting insider info. 

But...

its horribly produced (by who I’m assuming are his friends). There is no structure at all to it. He probably said 20 times “We’ll save that story for another episode.” Granted, the stuff he was teasing were some very interesting stories. 

Ultimately I’m just glad there was nothing he had to say that threw the program or Urban under the bus.

Olave and Tyreke Smith seem like some obvious choices. Olave for the flashes he showed towards the end of last year and Smith from his recruiting ranking and opportunity to be opposite of Chase Young  

But I’m going with Teradja Mitchell.  The guy has shown flashes where I really think he might be the best linebacker on this team. I hope they give him the opportunity to start at the beginning of the season 

Comment 13 May 2019

I know you’re joking due to the early nature of the rankings but 2021 has a lot of potential to be a deep class due to the amount of guys currently projected to come off the books, aka the upcoming Juniors. Kaleb, Jallow, Young, and Walker. That’s four potential spots for 2021. 

Obviously a lot can change like the high possibility of Kaleb leaving early and always the possibility of one of the other guys being a grad-transfer which could lead to someone being added for 2020 instead of 2021. 

Comment 10 May 2019

Will be interesting to see how this impacts the recruiting for the class of 2020. Andre will be the only Senior, so do Holtmann and company just sit back and wait to see if someone transfers/goes pro, or do they go ahead and promise a scholarship that they don't technically have yet. 

If Kaleb comes back, it's a safe bet that he will test the waters again after next year as well, with odds being him leaving after his junior year. Plus, like most years, there's a good chance at least someone will transfer, but is that something you can bank on?

Who really knows? 

The point being when a house is being bought/sold, even in this market, it's rare that both parties are willing to let a deal fall through over 1,000 bucks.

Perhaps the turf gives our speed an advantage over a grass surface at home

You answered your own question with this. As long as OSU keeps recruiting some of the fastest guys in the country, you take every advantage you can with turf. No need to turn every game into an at Northwestern.

Why I'm optimistic...

1. The AL Central is hot garbage. The Twins are solid, but I think most would agree they have overperformed at this point. The Indians without Kluber are probably about equal in odds to win the division as Minnesota is. 

2. On paper, losing Kluber would signify extreme problems if they do still make the postseason, but Kluber really hasn't been outstanding the last couple trips anyway. 

3. If any rotation can handle this, it might be this one. Bauer is an Ace, Carrasco has shown he's a reliable second option. If Bieber can step up or Clevinger comes back healthy, that's a solid 1,2,3 punch for the playoff. 

Comment 02 May 2019

Here's my idea: 

A college scholarship is adequate compensation for 95% of college athletes. It's the 5% that in a free market would demand leaps and bounds above the scholarship compensation. However, I think everyone is aware of the impact title IX can have on this, so you can't just compensate some instead of others. 

The only way to get around Title IX and to prevent college athletics from turning into a bidding war is to allow players to profit off their own likeness. There would have to be a cap put on yearly earnings though, that is the same for each player regardless of gender or sport. Just to prevent a car dealership from giving a college freshman a million bucks for appearing in one ad. What number that cap would be could be debated. 25,000 a year? 50,000? Obviously this would have to be closely monitored, which is why I think you allow the University to have complete control over setting up endorsements, selling autographs, memorabilia, etc, for the players. The university could even get a percentage cut. 

The only flaw I can think of with this system is there would have to be swift punishment from the NCAA for violations, which let's be honest the NCAA doesn't do a very diligent job of that at all unless you decide to trade memorabilia for tattoos.

For the first couple weeks I believe Chug will be the backup just because he will probably have a grasp of the offense a little better than Hoak. But once Hoak gets that down, he probably jumps Chug. 

Comment 25 Apr 2019

This is the guy that picks Michigan to make the playoffs every single year. If he's saying he likes Murray better than Haskins, then that bodes well for Haskins. 

Comment 24 Apr 2019

We will probably know Young's impact this year by the way Cooper/Smith perform on the opposite side due to extra chips and doubles that will come Young's way. Similar to how we saw Chase emerge when Bosa was getting the attention. 

Surprised Fuller didn't make the "Just missed the cut" list. 

Comment 24 Apr 2019

The problem isn't so much the denying of the waiver request, it's that they have granted waiver requests recently to guys like Martell, who really didn't have much other than "My coach left"

Comment 24 Apr 2019

It's amazing to me that the NCAA had enough sense to approve Fields because they could see the obvious fallout of a "The NCAA doesn't care about racism" narrative, but couldn't see the fallout of a "The NCAA doesn't care about Brain Tumors" narrative. 

Comment 23 Apr 2019

This just screams paranoia on all parties.

I understand what Haskins Sr is thinking though. He doesn’t want his “100 percent true” narrative associated with other people who may not be putting his son in the best light. It seems that one of the mentioned sources triggered him as not the most reliable person to paint Dwayne in the best light. 

Like others have said though, he really doesn’t have any control over this happening in the future. The only thing he has control over is what he decides to attach his own name to, and in this case he’s exercising his right to not attach it to this reporters work. 

Comment 22 Apr 2019

Brooks might not have to sit out a year. Could see them giving him immediate eligibility with Cronin leaving. 

Essentially the Tate Martell explanation, but basketball 

Comment 22 Apr 2019

I’m sure the NCAA even requires walkons to submit transfer paperwork to be immediately eligible. Just because of the loophole it could create. Ex: Well off family paying their own way to make their child immediately eligible upon transfer. 

I’m sure in this case it’s just a way to get his name in a database to get more exposure to schools. With the amount of guys that are getting immediately eligible I’m sure it won’t be a problem for him 

Comment 17 Apr 2019

Can't remember which interview it was, but in one of the recent ones Day said something along the lines of:

"Kids these days want to lead by example, and I think at times that's a cop out to being vocal"

So based off of that, you would assume that Fields is pressured to be vocal. Being a guy that had only been around for a little bit of time though, that's often hard to do.
