Because the players were just expected to shut up and play, especially considering they’re getting a free education.  I mean the carefully worded, crafted and sanitized statement by the University should suffice it.

Comment 15 Oct 2019

Maybe the ones that don’t play basketball well, should just stick to politics!  Right, maybe they’re not doing that well.

I mean really, everybody is entitled to their opinion.

There are fools in politics, LBJ is as entitled to his opinion, as the fools in politics are with theirs, who I might add readily tweet daily and all day and many times on Sundays.

Comment 12 Oct 2019

Wow, glad to know that’s all a thug is; what a relief.

Comment 09 Oct 2019

And for those that do jump early, doesn’t mean they’ll be smashing successes either, and that’s for all positions.  I can think of some BIA guys not exactly tearing up the league.

Comment 07 Oct 2019

You’re speaking of the NFLPA game, and then the East West game.  So there’s really 3 “All Star” games.

However, the Sr Bowl is the one which is considered the top game, because its selection is based primarily on the prospects that NFL execs have expressed interest in seeing via their submitting a player’s name as a vote.

Comment 07 Oct 2019

Sr Bowl invites are not a given either, and it’s not always about production.  Campbell was the only invite last year, and it was said that McLaurin was invited only after Campbell declined.

Sr Bowl gives NFL Team personnel an up close look @ prospects.  Do well and your stock can rise, show or reinforce your known/purported warts and your stock could drop.

Campbell was known for his speed, had numbers, plenty of tape and a rep for shaky hands.  In his case it made sense not to go, lest he have any experience with shaky hands during Sr Bowl week.

McLaurin was known primarily as a Special Team Ace, considered not much as a viable WR, even though he had some stats and had more career TDs than Campbell.  Once there, he showed up and out and showed that he could played WR and was maybe underutilized @ OSU.

Now speaking of Hill, he’s like Campbell in that he also also has numbers, plenty of tape, and Hill also has some ridiculous catches on tape; he knowns for his hands.  However, he’s not known for speed (Campbell) or ST (McLaurin) going into the Draft.

NFL execs look for skill position guys who can play two positions (including ST).

So with all of that said, Hill’s Draft position could flex wildly in particular in the 2020 Draft, which is shaping up to be a deep WR drill with some “noted names”.

Wishing Hill the best.  Victor will be anybody’s guess, and ironically it is Mack (who was hailed by Meyer as a Freshman) who may struggle to get drafted.

Comment 07 Oct 2019

But I thought Arnette was a bum, more like a MAC level player that was blocking younger guys from seeing the field.

Comment 07 Oct 2019

A young man by the name of McLaurin comes to mind Anothermichiganloss!  For all the bashing and inquiries about why this kid was even on the team, let alone playing, he stayed the course and look @ him now.  Doing quite well for himself I might add!

Comment 07 Oct 2019

I can vouch for its validity, but there’s a lil’ known rumor that a contributing factor to the broken foot was Dontre’s insistence on wearing a pair of cleats (for style) that were too little.

Comment 07 Oct 2019

If you’re a contributor to the success of the team, often your consequences are quite different than someone who is not.  McCall and Harris are two that fall into the latter category.

Comment 06 Oct 2019

It’ll be interesting to see what the Saints do with Apple contractually. I’d say between the Fiesta Bowl MVP, and OSU’s BIA moniker, he was over-drafted and was never s top 10 pick talent.  Being drafted that highly in a big time place like NY, contributed to the media glare that was not favorable to his play.

Comment 05 Oct 2019

I don’t compare Day to Meyer, but I will say that I’m glad to see a modernization of the offense.

Any given WR can have a play called for them and the passing game no longer flows thru Meyer’s coveted H position. 

Our passing game and it’s variety of calls, leaves you not knowing which WR is going to get the ball!

Comment 29 Sep 2019

May hinder his development, but I doubt his confidence.  Haskins is not short in confidence.

Comment 29 Sep 2019

With regards to Trent, at WHAT point is he not responsible for his own physical well being; I mean really!

The dispute seems to be about medical advice he got from the medical staff regarding a growth on his scalp.  He’s a grown man, that ought to know that wisdom says get a second opinion.

Comment 29 Sep 2019

I’ve heard (from a former player who has been back with Day in charge), there’s a night and day difference in the atmosphere @ the WHAC.

While folks appreciate what Meyer did, Coaches and players alike are more relaxed because of Day’s style.  The Coaches’ schedule is not a daily and all day grind, and the players aren’t walking around on egg shells.
