Henderson will end up playing in the 215-220 range and be big enough to carry the load if necessary but that’s not the plan. Pryor is more comparable to Samuel. If both stay healthy it’s going to be a wicked combination. Both have elite top end speed, good vision, can make people miss and are a threat to take it the distance every time they touch the ball. Plus they both can catch the ball out of the backfield. With our receivers all going out could you imagine a LB trying to cover either of these two one on one on a swing or wheel route? The potential of the offense with this classes weapons alongside with the O line haul in Day’s system is mind blowing.

Recruiting services tend to drop guys out of the top spots that commit early or don’t do camps. Uncommitted highly ranked players get clicks. “The Godfather” definitely favors kids that do the Rivals circuit and Rivals affiliated All-Star games.

I take it you didn’t see the video Zach posted in which Courtney was obviously drunk and took a swing at Zach while he was holding one of their kids. Let’s not pretend Courtney is innocent here. You’re saying Zach is a master manipulator which may be true but her family says the same thing about her. She accomplished what she wanted. She played out this whole thing publicly and destroyed his career despite the fact it also destroyed his ability to earn a living and support their kids. Now she sent the father of her children to jail. She got what she wanted. Hopefully they both can move on and get the help that they need for the sake of their kids.

Maybe not their PR department but let’s not pretend they don’t hold back on certain things to protect their accessibility. I’m willing to bet a few people here knew what injuries players had this season but respected the wishes of the program instead of making it public. And we know they play coy about a lot things when it comes to recruiting. It’s smart business and I don’t blame them at all but let’s not pretend like they don’t help OSU’s PR either.

Easier said than done with children involved. No matter how crazy your ex is it’s nearly impossible to not to have some contact with them when there is joint custody. They both obviously have alcohol and anger issues. No one knows exactly what happened between those two and even their recollection of the events are probably murky because they are both drunks. I’ve been in a relationship with a woman who liked to take swings at me when she got drunk. Of course I never called the police or sought help because I’m a bigger guy and I figured people would just laugh at me. Unlike Smith I was smart enough not to marry that crazy bitch. Point is that Courtney isn’t innocent. They both seem like questionable people/parents. Especially for playing out that whole debacle in the public spotlight. I feel bad for the kids, they’re the real victims in all of this. Hopefully Zach can get himself straight and hopefully Courtney can get the help she needs so that they both can be the parents those kids deserve.

Birm mentioned on Zach Smith’s podcast that a 5 star recruit that was in town while game day was there got caught trying to take the OSU gear that they give recruits to wear during their visits. Apparently they “loan” them gear to wear but let them know that it must be returned before they leave. I assume it’s because it’d be a violation. Anyway Birm said they caught the kid with a bunch of gear hidden in his gym bag that he was supposed to return. After that they stopped recruiting him. They said the kid wanted to go to OSU. They never named the player but it sounded like they were talking about Parsons. It would make more sense that was the real reason and not because he went on the Game Day stage and took pictures.

Miller and Stroud both hath to be thrilled with the possibility of lining up four wide with this WR class. Good luck guarding that. Sure teams we play may have one or two really could cover corners that may be able to cover one or two of these guys but all four? God I hope all of these guys can dodge the injury bug. The possibilities with these four in the lineup together are endless.

Anyone that watched that game with a critical eye knows that game wasn’t close. OSU was 3 dropped TDs and a BS reversal from being a 3 TD win by OSU. Clemson couldn’t move the ball until Wade was out. OSU wins that game 8-10 times. The better team loses all the time in the NFL. It doesn’t mean the team that won is better. Also Day out coached Dabo the whole game.

Seeing a Miami defender sprinting to the sidelines to put on a turnover chain while down 7-0 to La Tech in the Independence Bowl is an embarrassment to Miami football and is exactly why the program is a dumpster fire. I almost feel sorry that JT broke a once proud and elite program. Not sure which is a more dejected fan base, Michigan or Miami.

I am so fricking excited about the Pro Bowl. My son’s 10u flag team is one of 8 teams that will be competing at the Pro Bowl. We will get a chance to meet all of the players and help pack food/care packages for the homeless with them. If they make it to the championship they’ll play on the same field the Pro Bowl is played on and will be honored at halftime. But no matter what we get to the Pro Bowl too. I’m having my son bring his Zeke and Thomas jersey so maybe he can get them signed.
