1. Strength - Cardale Jones

2. Accuracy - Dwayne Haskins

3. Pocket/Vision - J.T. Barrett

4. Athleticism - Braxton Miller

5. Frame- Terrell Pryor

6. Intangibles - Craig Krenzel (dude was a winner)

7. Touch (my addition) - Dwayne Haskins (he could do the short passes that Cardale never could, this is more than just being accurate but knowing when to hold back that strength)

Triv, thanks for making me relook.  The over three limit is limited to 3 over 85, not 25.  So Mich, could sign 30. The NCAA limits the early enrollee numbers that can count to the previous year to 5.

Comment 01 Jul 2019

You are partially correct.  However, at least it is with the Big 10, you can only ever go over 25 by 3.  So 28 is the most ever, and that is if 3 early enrolled and counted towards the previous year.

Comment 01 Jul 2019

Basically, there is a deadline of when you have to have your numbers at 85.  So, we bring in a class of 25, and say that puts us over the 85.  By the cutoff date, that number has to be done to 85.  This is accomplished through graduation, transfer, medical hardship, and so on.  It was why the early enrollee numbers are kept at a lower amount, to not negatively effect recruiting from previous cycle.

Comment 01 Jul 2019

From my understanding it is still the case.  What happens is, if you sign 22 this year, you have until sometime in August (I think) to sign up to 3 more.  So it is a soft 25, not a hard and B1G is hard 25, with up to 3 additional to account for transfer, medical hardship, etc.  There is still the 85 scholarship limit.  If we sign 25 to this years numbers, we cannot sign extra next year.

Basically, as long as you keep the numbers for each year at 25, you can sign more.  If there is something else I am missing, like what Andrew said, would you mind linking it?

Comment 01 Jul 2019

I believe it has everything to do with the timing of when the player is at Ohio State.  For instance, if you sign 28 but 3 early enroll, then they are considered part of the previous year.  It is still very complicated but I know they can play around with the numbers and when they are officially counted.

For some odd reason, he just feels like a Michigan defensive lineman.  I mean, he sorta reminds me of Winovich.  He may choose us, and I am sure he is good, but he just seems to be one of those guys that will be at Michigan and annoy us.

This 2002 game against Texas Tech was my first game ever to watch.  I was home alone and bored one Saturday in high school and decided I would watch the game.  Nobody in our family watched college football, ever.  I still remember the announcers talking about this true freshman running back for Ohio State during pre-game.  Been hooked ever since (picked a great season to stumble onto college football and Ohio State football).

Comment 12 Feb 2019

Please do not castrate me for asking this question, especially since I am very high on Wilson.  My question is, how does Wilson compare to Donavan Peoples Jones coming out of high school?  DPJ was heavily hyped but has not been the world changer he was proclaimed to be.  Does Wilson play similar style, is he higher rated or lower?  Just curious how he compares.  I want to be super excited, but I also do not want to be disappointed because I made him out to be far greater than anyone we have seen before.

TCU starting QB throws two interceptions, one of which is a pick six.

Comment 12 Sep 2018

It is a so-called "neutral" site game.  So does that mean we have to wear an away jersey?  If there is ever a time for an alternate jersey, a neutral site game would be it. It is neither home or away (by technicality not reality).

Comment 07 Aug 2018

Who are you trying to get some answers from exactly?  This tweet was in response to Mixon, a running back at Oklahoma who hit a woman.  I believe he was commentating on the fact that there was clear video evidence of the violence on the woman, and yet Mixon was still accepted and cheered for at Oklahoma.  I believe McMurphy was showing disgust at Oklahoma for not taking the violence more seriously then they did.

Perhaps I am wrong.

Comment 07 Jul 2018

Quick, without looking, who was in legends and who was in leaders?  Now, without looking it up, who is in the east and who is in the west divisions currently?

Point is, while I think it was better balanced, it was about near impossible to know who was in what division without having to look it up.  The east/west divisions is much easier to align up, but the west is weaker in my opinion.  

I do not have a good answer how to balance the B1G while still making it very simple to figure out who is in what division.

Comment 31 May 2018

How much playing time realistically could we see Martell (assuming Haskins has a good, healthy year)?  Are we talking a few plays here and there plus garbage time, or are we looking at more like he gets a couple drives each game?

I assume looking at Meyer's and/or Wilson's past teams that utilized two quarterbacks could give an idea.
