People have gambled forever, and no amount of policing was going to stop it. So the states have legalized most forms of it and the world keeps rolling along.

The problem is the lack of interest from top prospects. Henry is the only top guy who seems likely to come here. It would be good to get Cowan in for a visit.

The DL recruiting is a massive disappointment so far. It’s tempered by the fact that we’ve extremely well the last 2 classes, and Sawyer is a great start for next year, but it would be great to get some good news on this front.

I was impressed by how often he had to evade pressure and make a tough throw. All those dozens of throws and not many clean pockets. His OL looked bad tbh. He also throws well moving to the left which is a plus.

From a logical standpoint, I don’t understand what Baldwin is thinking, unless there’s something going on behind the scenes. And if that were going on, why go through spring ball? This looks like a simple case of a kid wanting playing time, but aside from an FCS school, where does he think he can play this year? He has a great arm, but he needs a lot of refinement. Add to that that Fields has accomplished absolutely nothing yet, and Baldwin’s the clear backup, and he could certainly still be the starter this year. He has the right to make this decision, but that doesn’t mean it’s a good one.

I was also impressed with what I saw from Teague, Crowley, and Potter. Teague is ready to be the hammer we’re looking for and the young guys look like future studs. The DE position is insanely good for years to come.

He’s in a great position this year. Not only should Oregon be favored in the conference, the continued struggles of the LA schools opens the door to the top players in California. And while some will go east, many will want to stay out west.

I like him a lot as a big WR with speed. His HL tape is mostly of him playing WR and he looks real good there. With the attrition we’re seeing at the position, I’d start Young out as a WR. He has a steep learning curve as a LBer.

PSU will be the favorite again next year. Cassar will very likely get a 6th year, and they’re deeper than anyone else. The following year it will get interesting between us. We bring in a terrific recruiting class and we have some very good RS guys like Sasso, Hoffman, Kinner, and Mattox. I believe that the current group of PSU superstars are generational talents and they won’t replace them with guys who are as good. They may bring in good replacements for Nolf and Nickal, but those guys won’t be as dominant. There’s a big difference between guys who win and place. The future is bright.

I agree Thomas is hard to figure out. He doesn’t look like a 4-3 LBer, and I’m not sure he can add the weight to play DE, though I do like his frame. If he were 230 by this summer I’d feel good about him as a DE. Otherwise he should go play in a 3-4.
