True from a historical standpoint. That was 10 years ago that last time they were relevant. These kids were like 7 at the time. Not the same history as OSU, Alabama, USC, etc
I'm heaing rumors that Baldwin is a poor man's Burrow
Wish I had that great hair gene
Does anyone actually believe that pile of horse shit, even kids? Leads us back to greatness - LOL. Not negging you LCT, just that anyone would be dumb enough to believe that. Rather ride the pine for a year at Bama and collect a couple of Nattys
Absolutely. Just disappointed in all of this. Reminds me of the time we pursued the QB from Clemson at the expense of all others. Jones did not handle this the right way IMO. Of course he could have been telling the staff all along he is unlikely to join so move on. But I doubt it. #shady
If true, and in the voice of Robin Roberts, "bye Felicia"
Finally, there it is. That is all that is needed.
Forgot about ties. It is never different strokes/different folks. It is a reason and that is what I was asking. I read on this site earlier this week how Nick Saban asks their recruits what they thought about the competing offers. It is a way to understand the draw to other schools. I was just curious why he was so enamored with PSU. I was curious enough to ask, but I realize no one actually knows.
Hey buddy, not wearing my scarlet glasses tonight. Thanks for the potential reasons. That is the question I was asking. Not hypothetical, but actual reasons why he would consider PSU.
Distance from home (lives in Ohio) so probably not. Friends/relatives - who knows but unlikely. Classes/degree? who knows. If you are concerned with the education go to Stanford. You say it could be a million reasons and maybe that is correct. I was asking for the actual reason not hypothetical.
Why in the world would they want that? I am being serious. Of the multitude of reasons why a recruit would select one school over another I am having a hard time seeing any. Unless it is playing in a smaller town and being a big man on campus. Help me out here. Looking for something tangible not the standard "feels more comfortable" - that is a BS (politician speak) IMO
For the record, I was not a fan of Beck - at least his offensive play calling duties. But, I realize as a close follower of football in general for the past few decades that I know jack-squat compared to professional paid coaches (Urban). If Beck was good enough for him and Herman then he is "likely" a decent coach. Otherwise he would be unemployed. Doesn't that make logical sense? This anti-beck argument is similar to the hoopla over JT (JT is great/JT sucks, etc.).
I don't know why the offense struggled at times last year, could be 100 different reasons. But what I know for sure is that he was hired by some of the best coaches in the game AND he makes a boat load of money = he knows more than you.
Pretty disrespectful to gloat over Beck leaving. I would wager that no one on this site has any clue whether Beck was the problem or not. Any Clue. I would wager since Herman hired him and he makes significantly more than most (all) on this site, that they ain't all bad.
Sounds like more rumor spreading to me.
I think the only talk of transferring is coming from these boards not actually from Joe
He is from Austin. He did not have an offer from UT? That is mighty suspicious. Happy for him but at the same time feel we got lead around for 18 months by the short hairs. Saban giggling somewhere. Likey two 5 stars decommit in the same week. WOW
Sounds like he was not informed of this. The fact the bucks accepted the latest QB commitment indicates they are moving on IMO. Jones - he gone
If this was a real concern from the OSU admin, all they need to do is extend LJ a new offer. End of rumour
Prolly not because I heard there is nothing to do/no where to go around the stadium. Bad venue
I think the WR group was a bit better than your grade. How do you think they performed in the PSU game? Curious because that was the game that JT was unafraid to throw and threw it very accurately. QB and WR go hand and hand. Well see next year how the WR stack up. If the WR group earns a higher grade, please don't say it was because of them. Spoiler alert: it will the QB mostly
Please some DE commit and stay committed
Birm be salty
I have a bad feeling Alabama is going to come from WAAAAYYY behind and claim another recruiting title. odds probably 50/50
Agreed. This is terrible news given the need. I hope it was not any rumors that LJ was retiring. If the coaches thought that was even a remote possibility they could have offered him an extension. Hearing we won't end up with the other DEs as well. Likely PSU commits. #darkdays
