Yeah we will definitely take credit for him coming into LSU and turning them from a joke into a legit program upon arrival. His numbers may have been pedestrian compared to Haskins, they were better than anything an LSU QB has put up in recent memory. Keep in mind what he has to work with down there.
The latest of many examples of reporting based on headlines or stat-lines without having seen any games or done any analysis. As others have said, as long as they string a few sentences together and get clicks, they can keep working.
Until BR buys a few AI algorithms and lets them start doing the reporting, as it would be basically the same thing.
And many would think that’s pretty good compensation
But they didn’t look bad before Grinch arrived. You can call him an up-and-comer because a bad pac 12 defense marginally improved under his watch, and a very bad big 12 defense may or may not marginally improve again next year.. the fact is our very good defense that Schiano previously oversaw took a nose-dive when he got here.
This article has inspired me to start making Wes Fesler references during OSU football conversations and act shocked when the person I'm talking to has no idea what I'm talking about.
Imagine if he channeled that patience and attention to detail into something useful.
He's been through a lot physically, I'm sure he's not standing at his full height at all times
In high school I took a girl on a date to a Chinese place and she thought that placemat was the menu. I thought she was kidding, but she was genuinely shocked they served monkey and rat. I don't think she got to the dragon yet
If he was in school to be a professional student, I'd agree. But since he's in school to be a professional at coming up with ingenious solutions to frustrating problems, I think he's ready.
In many of those cases I put a lot of blame on the system itself that inspires those minds to look for ways to cut corners.
Those students are clearly ready for any entry-level job in engineering and the fact that they are bored and frustrated enough with going through the motions to come up with this as a solution is a plus as far as im concerned
This just makes me think of how Cris Carter always says one of the reasons he picked OSU was because he knew he'd be underutilized from the beginning, and he could go into the NFL relatively fresh. It might have been criminal how little Thomas was used here, but he should probably be thankful for that
I love when people feel the need to publish ranked lists, then also try and go with a wait-and-see approach. If we're waiting and seeing, it’s pointless to make the list in the first place. Sack up and rank him, or find something else to make a list about.
No idea what this means, but any reference to Ferentz and his COTYs gets an upvote.
I can't blame him, I'd want my son competing for #2 in his league and likely missing the playoffs every season too.
Very true. The RB position is very important, but as long as you get someone reasonably good out of high school, he'll soon be great due mainly to coaching, S&C, and the rest of the team around him.
I've always wondered what it would look like to take one of the guys who can take an otherwise bad team and carry them on his back like Tevin Coleman or Melvin Gordon, but put him on an actual complete team like OSU.
All signs point to Hartline being a home run hire, but we'll see how much the WRs new level had to do with Haskins. They'll have to be at an event higher level to help Fields get settled.
Yep. But we got to hear commentators call him "a grown man" with very serious expressions on their faces over and over. That appeals to the recruits
Yes but we are talking about that one kid. So the point is valid for this conversation
When Milton is the subject of the conversation, all the others in your list are not relevant as to whether or not Milton will consider us.
Nah that'd be in bad taste either way
He and his family
Also that sounds amazing
He and his family
No one remembers this, but it’s a huge difference between the two. Even with one more year as a starter his game would have developed immensely
As long as Patrice Wilson doesn’t have anything to do with it, it might be ok
Unless they take care of their money, then they won’t NEED to do something else
