He’s gotten some good young o-line players, going to be nasty by the time we play them.
So a few things,
It’s a football field, most schools have practice fields and even then! A grass field isn’t going to get run down from extra passes or 7 on 7 at 70 degrees.
Matthew Baldwin is a special case, he was always talented but comes from a D1 QB Lab.
Amother point was costs. What costs? Schools have the field, coaches are paid to coach already (we don’t even pay ours in Canada) and kids own cleats, etc.
Its all a partnership with coaches, if a kid is a good sprinter it’s no biggie to miss a few practices for track or a baseball kid miss a few as well. I’m all for multi-sport athletes, the thing with spring football is it makes the kids better and makes the game safer as with declining football enrolments, schools are putting out kids with less experience with each passing year into games.
Exactly my point, we had like 20-25 practices outside and it made a difference.
I know it’s Canada and all but my hometown Ottawa has had 4-5 kids brought in the last 4 years to visit Columbus, 2-3 with offered, who’ve been top 300 and spring football plays a big role. Even in Quebec where we play Americans rules (4 downs/no 1 yard rule) we send about 15 kids a year to D1 and you have to think that with Ohio having 7 D1 schools instate many being non-p5 inflates how many D1 kids are actually instate.
Ohio needs spring football.
I had spring ball when I lived in Quebec. No reason why you guys can't have it. Lifted all winter and did drills in the gym till the snow melted. It can be done.
Was that on Taver though?
DC was not interested in recruiting at all.
Cartersville is a good program, Cadillac Williams and Deshon Watson are from that school.
I care, we waited too long to offer him, can't wait till November to offer these kids.
Something everyone here seems to be missing, he’s learned under Saban for 3 years. His prior experience was under Ron Zook, he has decent offensive talent to work with and the area will provide enough of a base he won’t have to go far for talent. I think Maryland’s best will be 8-4, 9-3 at best, sad thing is it’ll be with a few players we would’ve wanted.
His only chance at a P5 Job would be in the south so no surprise here.
Best point I've heard regarding the die hard debate
Lets not forget that Wynt started over White for several games this season. There's been examples over several seasons of younger sometimes freshman players only getting playing time after subplanting the older player by injury only. Since 2012 there's a head-scratching example.
Even in 2016, they hit on 100% of their 50/50 balls. Was just wild how lucky they were that year.
Birm’s reported that Hubbard (Also in AZ) hasn’t received much contact since Urban announced he’s leaving.
How hard do your eyes roll when you see someone complain why their thread got deleted?

That's my #1
Can I have yours?
Cade was always going to enroll late, he wants to play one more year of basketball and I applaud him for it! enjoy your last few months of HS.
Still 2 weeks to talk to him.
FSU is such a dumpster fire, even with good players they're going to mess it up.
Even in his state!
Was a fan of Hubbard earlier in the process, however just like most classes, many talented kids start sprouting out around their jr. season and this kid is a prime ex.
Redshirt Junior, He'll be a R-Senior next year.
