I don't think the staff sees this as a particularly talented group of DTs as far as the who the highest rated players are. For that reason, targeting 3*s that they think would be just as good or better than higher rated players (such as Briggs) makes more sense to them. Plus, this cycle's rankings are schizo, anyway.
I think the Nova comparison is apt in that Carton becomes our definite PG, much like Brunson was for Jay Wright. Other guys can float in and handle the ball, but Carton will be the leader.
That is one entertaining highlight reel.
Son: "One thing. You had one fucking thing to do and that was to hide that glove."
Daughter: "This is what November feels like."
They were a talented team that caught us a on a flat day. Additionally, we had no answer for Juice Williams on that day; just gave us fits.
Seems like this year's class is just pretty average as compared to past classes and the analysts can't get a good grip on who are the truly elite players. I would expect a lot more shuffling before all is said and done. Even Noah Cain as 247's 242nd ranked player is eye-opening.
The big takeaway for me is that DiSabato's dodginess as a reporter and the ugliness of what appears to be real sexual assault are not mutually exclusive.
Couldn't agree more. IMG kids, especially, seem to come from all over the country and end up attending colleges all over the country as well.
Great call on the Sayers comparison. I see the same focus on pad level with both of them; they keep excellent balance at all times.
For those who remember: VanDarius Cowan, the Bama player who uttered the infamous "savages and goons" comment a couple of years ago, was kicked off the team.
I think it was 247 who basically said that Kyle Ford had the most dominant performance as a receiver that they'd ever seen. That's pretty good.
Then this is probably a bad time to bring up college, huh?
Wow, it's been a while. I'll actually be up in Sullivan County in a couple of weeks for a family get-together. I've heard good things about Turkey Hill and Marley Breweries, and the covered bridges are pretty great to go find.
My dad grew up in Bloomsburg, so I spent my fair share of time in Catawissa during summer visits. Beautiful country, and they love their football.
Agreed. He and many others. It seems like when people meet Schiano, they form a bond. It's pretty impressive.
So, he just committed to A&M after not having them in his top-3; I'm hoping this is not a trend.
Agreed. Those guys' takes may have some bias (whose don't?), but they're generally logical. Pat Forde is just a hater.
Sounds like he is in that transition to "the big picture" as we speak.
That is a very sensible take. Short drive.
Why is it now that this claim comes to light when the claimant knew this information for so long?
This same question can be asked of so many similar sexual abuse cases over the years. As has been documented voluminously, the reasons are many.
My thoughts exactly. This marks a turn in their recruiting philosophy, IMHO.
Agreed on point about journalism. When I find an article where someone is not addressed initially by their whole name, it's maddening.
I do understand a forum post title is a bit different.
we should be concerned about our supermodel girlfriends breaking up with us
Hey, I broke up with her. Get it straight.
I doubt he's playing UM. He does not seem to crave the limelight like TP did. You're right, though: it's national recruiting these days and players feel, justifiably, like they can go anywhere.
Bama takes 3*s, too. They have four in their current, top-rated class.
