Hancock's offer list is insane for a kid who the services haven't caught onto yet: OSU, Bama, Clem, UGA, AUB, UF, ND, OU, etc.
I think in today's world this is a discussion worth having if gone about the right way. We don't need to put specific kids on blast but this is a big part of major college football now and would be ignorant to simply ignore this. That being said. we will see at least one guy leave from each of these position groups: WR, OL, LB, DB, and maybe a TE
Love it and would love a link to the 247 profiles
Not sure about any of those options, but would not be surprised to see us go after a grad transfer DB. Our CB depth next year will be light with Banks, Brown, and Riep (unsure if he's a true corner) as our only CBs who have played any meaningful snaps.
Playing Bama, LSU, Auburn, A&M every season. No way I'm taking that job.
All post 2002 when recruiting became easier to follow and guys who had OSU in their top 5 at some point:
- Deshaun Watson
- Stefon Diggs
- Christian Kirk
- Amari Cooper
- Jaylon Smith
- Christian Wilkins
- Jordan Hicks
- Sharrif Floyd
- Lamarcus Joyner
- Micah Parsons
Kristian Fulton is a projected 1st round pick and true freshman Derrick Stingley Jr. would be a first rounder if he was eligible to go pro. Arranda is getting exposed but they still have two top flight CBs.
Looking at scoring margin - only team last 15 years close is 2013 FSU with about +42 which is just below ours currently. Should go up after next week then drop after PSU and UM. That FSU team is one of the more underrated teams of recent memory, they were totally dominant.
You forget the Sparty game already? Not to mention NW and Nebraska at night on the road.
Since 1949 Michigan has .5 national championships. I think people tend to over estimate the amount of modern success from the Michigan football program. They are always listed in top program lists, most wins, loads of natties etc but I often tend to think the overwhelming success of the program early on is skewing the external opinion of the modern Michigan football program.
Comparing them directly to a program like Ohio State who has won 7 national titles since 1950 is not really fair at this point. Since Woody took over in 1951, OSU leads the series 38-27-2.
Michigan is obviously a top 10 program in modern college football, however they are a step behind the truly top 4-8 programs of the sport since WW2.
Dude is a potential first round pick, and with Okudah , Arnette, and probably Wade going pro - would be an awesome addition.
Awesome work - would love to see this every week
Yup - having re-watched all the games this year, there is a small, albeit clear, drop-off from Bowen to NPF. Hopefully with NPF playing his first real minutes of his career Saturday, we see the lights fully come on.
As a CFB junkie I wish networks would offer a premium package for game film week after the game like the NFL does. Would love to see an option that included normal broadcast, spider cam, All-22 etc that comes out the Monday after games. Wouldn't really take amny effort on the networks part, and I'd gladly pony up some cash for that.
Didn't work at all in 25AA, worked fine in the concourse area however.
It's evident the distance to home thing is simply blowing smoke up everyone's ass. He might've honestly told the coaches that was the reason why he was eliminating OSU and that's why all the insiders are on that train, but it is 100% not the true reason why. Tuscon to Austin is a longer drive than Columbus to Jacksonville... Bijan has always liked Texas and he has a longer relationship with them. Texas is desperate, and I mean desperate for an elite RB recruit and my guess is they simply went all hands on deck with the kid. Drayton was fighting for his job in this recruitment as pressure in Austin was mounting on him. Sometimes the cat backed into a corner is the most dangerous, and I think it's simply a case of Texas NEEDING this recruit and prioritizing him over everything.
This is how the NFL works, and it's not something new. Emmitt Smith did the same thing in 1993. Dallas lost their first two games, Jones caved in and Dallas won the Super Bowl. Dallas has a 0% chance of winning the Super Bowl without Zeke and Jones knows that and will eventually cave. Dallas' offense is built for and around Zeke.
With Elliott, the Cowboys are 28-12, have averaged 361.5 yards per game and 4.7 yards per rush, and have outscored opponents by 188 points, according to ESPN Stats & Information. In the eight games they have played without Elliott, the Cowboys are 4-4, have averaged 297.3 yards per game and 3.9 yards per rush, and have been outscored by opponents by 36 points.
Wow the Indians Front Office deserves a drink for this trade. 10/10 Bauer is a borderline MLB ace but comes with his own baggage and CLE never wanted to pay him the near $20MM his arbitration would cost next season. There is also a 0% chance he would've resigned with CLE after next year and 0% he resigns with Cincy as well. Not 100% sure what the Padres are doing here, Trammel is a legit blue chip prospect and they have an influx of young arms and corner outfielders, but they still got fleeced in this deal. Unless they plan on using Trammel to get Syndegaard? Regardless the Tribe got better today and better for the future which is the hallmark of a good trade.
Sewell is a top 5 LB nationally imo. He's a traditional thumper ILB and would pair wonderfully with an exceptional athlete in Simon. I'd put this in the slim to none category, especially without Urban but glad to see we might get two visits. I'm in the minority here but would love to see us take another LB and CB in this class. 2019 and 2020 classes combined having only two sure-fire CBs (Phillips & Lejond) and LBs (Stover & Simon) is a bit of a risk if the tweener kids don't pan out as anticipated.
If Crowley is the real deal, you don't redshirt him. Good RBs are only going to stay in college for 3 years (4 max) so don't waste one of them with him on the bench.
$430 roundtrip for economy for those wondering. Not bad at all considering the size of Lincoln.
This is huge. Even if we are running in 4th place right now, two visits over the next 6 months gives us a chance.
Chile is ranked top 15 in the world, way ahead of us...
It's soo much easier recruiting against USC, UCLA, Wash etc. compared to Bama, UGA, Clemson, LSU, AUB, Florida schools etc.
I'd love to have Schiano back in any capacity. HC experience, ace recruiter, and a good football mind. People forget how good our D was the first two years under Schiano - 6th and 8th - prior to the disaster of last year which I think is silly to put all on Schiano.
