I agree. He is actually really athletic, so if he had swallowed his pride a few years ago I think he'd be a good slot WR right now. But he cost himself the chance to ever make money doing that.
Finally, in the Sugar Bowl, he capped his career with 59 receiving yards and two touchdowns. The first came as he alertly hopped on a Pryor fumble in the end zone giving Ohio State a 7-0 lead. The second occurred a quarter later via a 15-yard touchdown grab putting the Buckeyes in front 20-7.
QB remains the most important, so he could possibly drop if other teams want Tua or something like that. I know he wants to be close to home, but it wouldn’t be the worst thing for his career to not play for the Redskins or Lions.
That said, I still find it very unlikely he’s any lower than third.
If you were considering that you have absolutely no incentive to publicly say you’ve reached out to him. I’m guessing more than three teams have spoken to his agent.
Well yea but that’s kind of the point. Any RB with an “offer” from us knows it’s now worthless. In a perfect world anyone with an offer could commit to that school if they wanted to - that’s just not reality though.
It’s nice that he’s taking a stand, but at the same time we’ve offered 140 kids for like 20 spots. I think this is one of those things that’s going to take a LONG time to trend the other way.
Neither Schiano nor Bosa had anything to do with the offense that year. Haskins put up huge numbers, but our running game was broken. In our lone loss that year Dobbins had 11 attempts for 24 yards (and we know full well what he's ACTUALLY capable of).
That team was very, very flawed and if not for an absolutely ridiculous QB we wouldn't have been anywhere near 13-1.
I haven't seen anyone attack Luther personally for doing what he thinks is best for him (if they have, I would agree that this is wrong). But fans complaining that their basketball team is losing its best defender is perfectly reasonable. The team is better with him than without him, so it's fair to not like it.
China claims to have turned it around.*
If you believe their official numbers, ask me about my fine inventory of bridges.
I agree, but a relevant concern to us would be if you push things back like two months and the season ended in March instead of January then first round guys (Fields, Lawrence, etc) would be more likely to sit out. Thats still better than no season at all tho.
That July deadline is true for a full regularly scheduled season, but an abbreviated season or that goes into the Winter would obviously give us some more time. I’d take a B1G only slate with our annual whooping of Michigan over no season at all.
Sounds like Muhammad at least let the coaches know a while ago, or this is just a coincidence and due to Carton.
There are around 35,000-40,000 people there every day, and tickets average a few thousand each (secondary market). They're only $325 at face value for four days, but no matter which way you look at it theres at least $10m in revenue to be lost with no fans.
Now if they REALLY wanted to be creative they could have played it this week with no fans and put it on PPV. A very bored America would have have paid through the nose to watch that.
11W editor Googling who's still on the team in order to use a picture on the story
I’m not as interested in what it means for next years team as I am for what it means for the program overall. I know transfers are a part of life now, but there seems to be some type of rot going on.
Didn’t the S&C coach get a poor performance review last year? Obviously there’s more to it than just that, but could be a symptom of a larger problem.
Ok, I’ll do it. But you guys owe me.
We’ve had multiple classes wiped out under different coaches. There’s definitely something weird in the program at this point.
UMass in absolute shambles rn
The past few years they’ve been that low until later in the summer. He can basically wait until camps to let kids know which ones he wants and then just handpicks his class.
I like Fuller but he was never an elite player who you’d draft high (ie, Malik Hooker). I think those assessments are fair.
Have they said how the draft is going to work? Is it going to be like a Zoom call with 32 screens?
As long as they let them all walk in the Shoe eventually I’m good with this idea.
Any changes or "improvements" might mean simply downsizing the college sports experience in a way that asks fans to give up on qualify of life improvements like better seating or WiFi, deems an increasing amount of support staff and media as "nonessential," and centralizes broadcasting power even more than it already has been.
I mean, none of that seems too bad. Would I still watch if college football if teams no longer had 15 quality control coaches and the coaches only made $2m instead of $7m? Yes, yes I would.
The Bird layoffs story is crazy. It reminded me of that episode of Succession where Kendall destroys the startup.
