Fast forward to this guy's video two years from now. "I didn't think there would ever be a better pass rusher than Chase Young... and then came Zach Harrison."

May be a small matter on the NCAA side of things, but it's the civil suit that Dantonio and his lawyers are worried about. Now that he's out of coaching, he couldn't give two rips about the NCAA. A ruling against him in a wrongful termination claim on the other hand...

If they send that verified clear photo evidence to the SEC replay officials, the case will be dismissed in 10 minutes.

Agree perception is everything, and all that matters is what we can convince the kid we are recruiting. And each kid is going to be different. Wisconsin has a great track record of getting lower-rated guys with chips of their shoulders, and just putting the whole program of their backs. Problem with that is they take too many hits and the NFL knows it. I think that's why many of these elite kids are OK going to places like Bama and Georgia where they know they are going to split carries. The NFL is backing away from RBs in the 1st round, so these kids are realizing it's better to save your body, flash as a junior, get popped in the second or third round, but then still have enough in the tank to get the second contract. As much as I hate to say it, Clemson is a "pass-first team" like you are talking about, but now they're going to really start getting stud RBs because they see they can pick up major yards and get drafted without carrying it 300 times like typical B1G RBs. That's where we need to be a combo of those 3 styles.

OK, few things. First, Snead was ranked #80, and if he didn't do the things he did, we're not even having this discussion. Next, Teague was woefully underrated. Ran for 2,500 yards as a junior but didn't do the camp circuit. He had 750 yards and 11 TDs in parts of 5 games as a senior before he got hurt. Dude legit had the talent to be a top-100 player. Then as far as Chambers, he was rated as an athlete, and they always struggle ranking those kids because they don't know if they are RBs, LBs or safties. But an all-state RB and LB from Georgia that EVERYBODY wanted. Yeah, I'm good with him. And as for Crowley, how the state player of the year in Florida runs for 2,000 yards at 10 ypc and is ranked 370... well, that I can't tell you. Add in the verbal from Bijan that went sideways and the fact we just produced the first 2,000-yard back in school history, and I'm prepared to give Alford some slack. He's going to land 2 studs this year, we're going to have an elite recruiting class, crush that team, win the B1G, and be in the running for a natty for at least the next 3 years.

That list is beneath them. They are on the super-secret list. The one that only exists in their minds. Kind of like _ichigan fans. 

Comment 28 Jan 2020

How does where it originated have any impact on the levels it is currently being played? The biggest problem (from an OSU perspective, one that has been discussed on this site numerous times) is that Ohio high schools are drastically restricted in when they can train and play, whereas the kids in the South are playing year-round. How is it that nobody in Ohio has pushed for this change to keep up?  

Comment 26 Jan 2020
So you'd rather have a kid that was 5-8 and physically dominant as a pee wee but is 5-10 now, over the kid who is a monster? Some kids peak early and some bloom late. I'll take the kid who is 6-3, 225 and can run and loves to stick his nose in and hit, even if he was the backup kicker as a 9-year old. High school coaches put these kids wherever to win high school games. Does it bother anyone that Josh Perry was a HS QB?

Terwilliger's job is to go out and glad-hand coaches in the state to keep them pro-OSU and to pick up names of younger kids from the area who may become high-level prospects down the road. So while there may be someone down that way right now, there probably isn't. He keeps up the good will within the state, since the other assistants don't really have the time to hit a school that doesn't have a major recruit.

I respect a kid's decision to go where he feels most comfortable, but if he thinks Texas is getting turned around anytime soon he's nuts. They have talent for sure, but something just isn't meshing. Texas Tom may be a genius but his leadership appears iffy. And the fanbase is restless. If he cant get them past OU and into the playoffs this year, I think they blow the whole thing up.
