It doesn't seem that the basketball experts are as good as the football guys in predicting where guys end up, which is less a slight on them and moreso the fact that: 1) there are a lot more teams competing for top guys since the classes are so much smaller, 2) two widely spaced signing periods, 3) AAU and money, which from reports has led kids to commit to schools at the last minute that they may otherwise not have been considering. Zion was like this and I have no doubt he got a hefty payday from Nike to go to Duke.
As for OSU specifically, might be the newness of the staff and maybe they aren't as chatty as the football coaches.
Agree. I like VAR. I prefer they get the calls right, which they did in the Man City-Tottenham game. The rule is dumb, but don't blame VAR for that.
Did not see that thrashing from United, though Chelsea were a bit unlucky with the post a couple of times. Otherwise, pretty much as expected this weekend. Good start for my Gunners with a road win and clean sheet even though they were missing a bunch of key people and played a very young squad. Some good games next weekend: Tottenham-Man City, Man U-Wolves, and Chelsea-Leicester.
Hoping Arsenal can outscore people enough to finish in the top 4. I think they'll be better than United and maybe Chelsea and Tottenham. I don't think City and Liverpool (especially) are going to run away like they did last year. City will probably 3 peat, but it'll be a battle with the other top 6, except United, who I think are going to battle Everton and Wolves for 6th.
I'm looking forward to the August heat check. I don't know if there's 10 names on the board right now. DL is a complete mystery to me. Even moreso than RB at this point, I think. Guess you could have Cowan, Evans, Hardy, and Baron, but none of those guys seems particularly likely at this point. Anyone else just seems like throwing crap against the wall, though.
I'd prefer they ramp back up with Berger than Drennen personally. I was all-in on him being the APB from the beginning, even before they got involved with Knighton. Think he's pretty good.
I've always liked this kid's film. Wouldn't mind seeing him in the class personally.
In the comments under that Newburg tweet, someone said his dad is friends with the RB coach at FSU
7 on 7 tournaments. A lot more opportunities for them to be seen than other positions.
Looks like he's going to A&M
I don't know what Sheffield should have been ranked. Just saying he was a 5 star one year and then suddenly was only a low 4 star a year later. Same with Newton, who was a 5 star when he went to Florida. Got kicked out and tore up JUCO. There's no reason to think that he wouldn't still be a five star, but he wasn't rated that way.
The fact that they've never had a 5 star JUCO or prep school player in the last 10+ years despite having guys who were five stars before they went that route and guys that have ended up 1st round draft picks is telling. They don't rate them the same.
