I think I read somewhere that OSU has more alumni in Phoenix than Atlanta. I believe it, but does anyone have the numbers?
Bring on Okie! Utah was exposed.
Facts. Bama vs. TTUN would be a TV bonanza, and Bama fans would travel in mass to Orlando for a little Disney and Bowl Game fun.
Bama is a very good team - yes, they've given up some yardage to LSU and Auburn, but I don't have to tell you guys that TTUN ain't those dudes. Bama beats them by 35 points.
Their fan base couldn't handle another Bowl Game beatdown to an SEC team, could they?
They better pray for USC in the Holiday Bowl - they can score points but TTUN should be able to move the ball against them. What TTUN doesn't want is to face Bama, Auburn or Florida in a bowl game in the state of Florida. They will be beaten like a rented mule.
Many reasons but for me it's:
- The stadium experience sucks for a modern human. Seats are too small, and who wants to stand for 4 hours?
- What modern human wants to sit next to strangers? Modern humans want to stay in their homes (look at the rise of Amazon, Door Dash, and in-home grocery delivery). We want to sit on our couch and have everything delivered to us.
- Modern humans are increasingly isolated. We'd rather sit on our devises and communicate on-line (hence the popularity of 11 Warriors, Facebook, and Twitter).
Here's my problem: I make it thru say the first 50 posts of a 200 post recruiting thread, and when I come back, I can't tell what I've read and what I haven't. So I miss a lot of info which is very frustrating.
I'm no "baron" but if I were I'd allow separate threads when new info is known about big time recruits like this dude. I, too, don't have the motivation to filter thru 200 comments on 1 recruiting thread.
I am a Joe Burreaux fan boy, but I'm intrigued by the idea of taking Chase Young #1 and get a QB in the 2nd round. You got to have faith in your evaluators (which worries me because they apparently miffed on Finley this year) - and get a Jalen Hurts or Jacob Eason.
High risk / high reward: but a Chase Young would be great to have.
Don't underestimate Stud's ability to coach-up 3 star talent. One of the best in football.
I am officially old and out of touch. I've never heard of this guy and I have no idea what Urban and he are saying about rivers and roller coasters.
Don't listen to Podcasts.
Don't watch Game Day
Don't watch Thursday night football.
Agreed. You can tell he was told not to run it against TTUN....there were several plays he could have taken off and picked up serious yardage but instead threw it.
I was quite surprised to see so much scarlet in the stands given reports that OSU sent a couple thousand unsold tickets back to TTUN. But a great turnout and hilarious to see the bottom 25% of the stands scarlet about half way thru the 4th quarter.
I like Hutchinson, particularly how he's just a Freshman, but DPJ reminds me too much of Braylon Edwards: other worldly physical skills that allow him to make the circus catches, but stone hands on the easy catches. But man would I LOVE to have him at Punt Returner right now.
Other than that, there's a general lack of elite talent at TTUN.....and if you've seen their 2020 recruiting class, it's only going to get more mediocre.
I've read articles where coaches give their swag to local charities who in turn auction it.
I'm a technology challenged 50 year old dude who's very comfortable with DTV; however, saving $70/month has gotten my attention:
- What do you use for remotes on YouTube Tv?
- We have Apple TV.....do you access YouTube TV thru it?
- We only use Apple TV on one TV...but I have 3 other TV's around the house...can they all flow thru Apple TV?
- Does DTV require you send back their receiver? I have a custom component rack for all the equipment that powers my home theater in the basement ---which reminds me that I have no idea how to get YouTube TV to it....right now DirectTV is hooked up and my Universal Remote controls it.
- I'm so scared!
Pretty sure this dude had an OSU offer. Big loss for them. An experienced Center would help them in the very loud Shoe come Saturday.
I think I was the target of the OP slandering my good name....if so, I forgive you; I forgive you; I forgive you.
A lot of folks in this thread somehow keep erroneously implying that Jeaux Burreaux fan boys would root for LSU over OSU. Nothing could be further from the truth. We all want OSU to win; however, many of us fan boys want to see Jeaux succeed in all areas of life. We admire Jeaux the person and the player......we just don't want to see him & LSU beat OSU....never.
We like Jeaux the person more than Jeaux the player if that's possible.
Billy Canon won a Heisman for LSU, no?
Edit: I didn't see Ceesix's post before I responded. I think Billy Canon is who the fictional movie about the Grey Ghost (played by Dennis Quade) and LSU is based on. In the movie he marries the Delta Gamma homecoming queen wins the Heisman and NC....and then has a few problems down the road which I think Joey will hopefully avoid.
I had to retire my long time and well loved New Era hat this fall with a Nike.....and it's left me very sad. The New Era hat had a type of soft wool material that gently expanded when I put it on my noggin'. Oh so comfortable.
The Nike is a made of a Dri-Fit material that expands but is not nearly as comfortable.
My old black New Era has turned a dark purple due to the sun....now that I hear that they've lost their license with OSU I'm really tempted to see if I could find someone who could die it black again.
I'm all in on Joe, and hope he throws for 400 yards and no TD's in a losing effort to OSU for the NC then goes on to marry the Delta Gamma homecoming queen after getting drafted #1 overall next year.
At this point of the season if I have guaranteed my high draft status and am comfortable with it, I am sitting. (that's about 5-6 OSU players). The NFL doesn't care if I sit....Christian McCaffery and Leonard Fournette come to mind.
Playing one last game against PSU and TTUN and going to the playoffs doesn't get Momma out of the ghetto.
What's Noah Cain's status? They need him against OSU.
And I'm guessing they held Hamler out against IU to keep him ready for OSU because without both he and Cain, PSU is going to struggle on offense against OSU.
I LOL'd on that one.
Since the Nationals won the World Series the year after they let a "generational" talent walk......I say trade Lindor ASAP. The key is to start the process early and be patient while you wait for the right prospects to be offered. Being patient is the key. Eventually the right offer will come.
