I like Hilliard, but I do wonder about too much depth and guys looking at this and wanting to transfer. You've got Gant, Mitchell, Pope coming into year 3, along with the Ohio kid who is redshirting. Then 3 guys coming in 2020. Not to mention Wint and White who essentially play as a version of a LB. That's a lot of guys for what amounts to 3 spots and sometimes only two spots depending on the down. 

I have zero doubt the transfer portal is going to suck some LBs into it and I'm hoping it's not someone we are going to miss.

I'm still surprised they took Melton. I would not have done so. The LB room is crowded right now and Hilliard is looking at a 6th year. I could see some frustration setting in from players in the 2 and 3 deep. We really only play 2 and 3 LBs for the most part. Werner and Borland are coming back next year along with Browning. Then if Hilliard is back and takes over for Harrison you've got Pope, Gant, Mitchell in the 2 deep vying for time. If they get Flowe, there is no reason to grab more linebackers in 2021 since you already have Carrico.

Article this morning on Motley Fool about the Marijuana industry: Marijuana Stocks Have Lost (at Least) $35 Billion in Market Value Since April

Not a great headline if you are already an investor. That said if you are looking for a buying opportunity, here it is. Vanguard has a fund called VTMGX worth looking into which has some Cannibus stock. I'm actually looking at buying some right now. 

I've done quite well with Vanguard index funds over the years and have both my SEP and Roth housed there. I use my personal cash on house flipping, but not in the traditional sense. I buy a place, remodel it, live in it for at least 2 years, and then sell. I live in San Diego, so super expensive real estate here and I'm only on my second place in the middle of year 3, but I plan to sell this spring. Then I use other savings to invest in Crypto. I have not done well there at all, but this is where I carry my high risk / high reward investments. I'm only 39 and didn't start making any money in life until I hit 30. So for those of you wondering if you're too late because you didn't start early, fear not. There is always time. Let your money work for you. Stop spending it on crap.

Joe Brady is the man. Dude came from the Saints and he will have a head coaching job somewhere within the next two years. Coach O is a defense guy and I too am not buying his success. I think he is a good dude who found an OC that is da bomb.

As a 39 year old single guy, who still has his youth, will to live, and made some good money...

If it flies, floats, or fucks....rent it!

Comment 22 Oct 2019

Umm....correction. It's "crapdusting". Thank you and come again. 

Comment 20 Oct 2019

I tend to agree, except State Penn is not that good. I put them on par with Florida. I do think Wisky is a top 10 team, but fell in the definition of a trap game. I think Michigan is improving and I put them as comparable to Auburn. 

This won't be popular opinion on this board, but to me the SEC and Big 10 are the top 2 divisions and are eerily similar. People forget we have Rutgers and Illinois. 

Comment 18 Oct 2019

I don't want to be #1. I want to be in the top #4. Flying a bit under the radar is always preferred. The extra pressure is so not necessary as long as you are in the top 4 or have the chance to play for the championship. 

In the case of this argument, there is turnover ever year. Last year has no relevance to this year, so Klatt is 100% correct. New year. New payers. New coaches. Thus new rankings. It's pretty easy to apply some critical thinking here. 

Comment 16 Oct 2019

Calories is total bullshit. Wives tale that just won't die. Eat until you feel satiated. Don't over eat, don't under eat. Outside of that when I am coaching people I don't give a flying F. Weight loss is hormonal. If you eat sugars and grains your body will release hormones and that is how you put on weight / don't burn fatty tissue.

Secondly, hidden sugars is in everything. The only true way to avoid them is to cook for yourself. Eat more red meat, the real fatty cuts. Add some bacon. Put grass fed butter on all your vegetables and or your coffee. I put butter in my eggs and coffee EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. 

Bananas are bad. Stop eating them. Berries is gray area. I don't like people trying to lose weight to eat berries especially in the first 60 days. Nuts you have to be really careful as you can cross the starchy divide really quick.

Netstreams. You can buy it for 7 days for $5. PM for info. I used it while traveling in Japan last month and watched us kill Nebraska. When we had to leave the hotel I watched the 4th qtr from my iPhone over normal cell data.

Comment 14 Oct 2019

Are you kidding? Hard sell. They almost lost to Fresno St. and GA Southern. Yes they booted Nebraska, but without Martinez. Minnesota is the same team they have always been. Basically a poor mans Michigan St. 

Comment 08 Oct 2019

Just watched his tape. I see why we like Gibbs and his rating bump is legit. He could also be a return guy for us. I don't like his tape as much as Bijan, but I do like it more than Milton's and I was never a huge Milton fan. Bijan is just on another level. I'd be thrilled with Gibbs. I think he's in the upper echelon level and a top 5-7 back in this class. 

Comment 06 Sep 2019

Olave was a 3-star. Here's a bro-tip: Rub some brain cells together and be objective. 

Drennan is rated higher and most of us aren't impressed. 

Comment 31 Jul 2019

I just watched EJ's tape for the first time. It's not Bijan's level, but lets talk about how it translates. High school defenses aside, EJ is very good. Here is what I think he will be in a college...

A guy that doesn't wow you but is super consistent and gets the job done every game. He won't be flashy and probably won't wow you with a 200+ yard game. But he will stay healthy and give you 100+ yards every game out and be reliable. He won't turn the ball over. After the end of the year you'll look at the CFB stat sheet and you'll see EJ in the top 10 for total yards, ypg, etc. He will be an underrated back without all the fanfare, yet be the surprising name on that top 10 stat sheet and wonder how he got there. 

As a Giants fan I grew up watching Emmitt destroy everyone and I hated him While he ran behind one of the best lines ever, Emmitt was a hard worker and had tremendous vision. I'm a big fan of going after bloodlines. If you haven't read Moneyball, I suggest you do. Billy Beane discusses bloodlines. They typically succeed. Those are the guys you want. 

I still would like to see a scat back in the mold of a Darren Sproles added to this class. That would make us incredibly potent on offense. You can't guard all our variable ways to attack and it allows us to shift game plans. Day would have a "field day" with opponents.

It's impossible to love LA. I live in San Diego and have lived in CA all my life. LA is a 3rd world dump with perhaps the worst traffic on the planet. Everything is expensive, everything has lines, and people are as fake as it gets. There is ZERO to like in LA. If God really spoke to him, then God has definitely worked at ESPN. 

Comment 24 Jul 2019

I virtually ignore ESPN altogether. Haven't been on there in ages and plan to keep it that way. Once they went all SJW they were dead to me. 

Comment 24 Jul 2019

Wow, thank you for this. Love it when community members come together to share the wealth. I didn't even realize I was effected, but I'll take the $125. 

Comment 12 Jul 2019

My fiance works for British Airways so I've flown direct to LHR and done europe more times than I can count. 10 days is a short time. Don't over do it in terms of destinations because it will ad costs and stress travel when it comes to bus / plane / Airbnb. Also, the northern part of Spain is awesome. In 12 days including travel from San Diego, we did Bilboa, Barcelona, and Madrid. I think France is super overrated and everyone there is a prick. Everyone also smokes. I have zero desire to go back to Paris. Just my 2¢.

In short, just pick two or 3 spots in Span and just do Spain. Then if you want to do France / Paris later make that a second trek. Or you simply need to increase your 10 days to 15 days. 

Italy, Spain, and Ireland are my 3 most favorite Euro places. The eastern block of Europe sucks. Commies love concrete is pretty much all you need to know. Romania sucks. Prague is so touristy and overrated. Saw it all in one day and have no desire to go back. Lots of war history there. Some great views. 

London obviously has tons of history, but the weather is the worst on the planet. It's worth doing, but again I think it's a pinch overrated. Cameras everywhere and in central London it's just like being in NY. 

Germany is bad ass too. 

That should give you some ideas should you want to extend your trip. 

Comment 13 May 2019

Thanks for the clips. I’d like to read it but out of principle for all that is good in this world I refuse to ever visit that site. 

I for one will be watching Tate at Miami if he gets to play. I don’t hate the kid. Yes he’s a big mouth, entitled brat sometimes, but he still chose OSU at the end of the day. He’s not my favorite to ever come through Columbus either. That said I do hope he finds humility one day. That quality in people is severely lacking these days unfortunately.

Good luck Tate. I hope you play well in Miami, but if you play against us I hope Chase makes you kiss the grass unwillingly.

Comment 20 Feb 2019

Not to piss in your Cherios, but this is why America is fat. There is nothing healthy about cereals or grains for that matter. Bacon & Eggs every day is all you need. 

That said, before I became a health nut, Fruity Pebbles FTW.
