I would guess it’s a question of whether we prioritize him or not. To this point we don’t seem to have gone really hard - maybe that changes this week.

With the Warriors down, there is a chance to make a run this year. One lesson from the Raptors going and getting Kawhi with no long term guarantee: take your shot when you have it.

So interesting.

Have to think Alabama and Georgia are each getting one. Which means four schools for two players. Usually RB is not a huge deal position - we always seem stacked - but the 2020 class feels pretty important on this one.

Pro sports are designed to give teams a chance - with decent management - to compete for a title. (Arguably baseball does not bc of no salary cap but...)

College sports lets the top teams horde. And while I am glad we are a top team, it is true that I could give you a list of maybe 8 teams that have a chance of winning a natty during the next 4 years.

there is no way that is true. Franklin may be feeling some heat, but I don't even think 6-6 would get him fired this year. He has some leeway for another year or two.

This is a good reminder of why that is a bad policy. Sometimes folks around here get pissy about our commits showing up in other campuses, but it's better than suddenly losing 3 4-star guys in a week because they want to look around.

So in all seriousness, what is happening in Happy Valley? I'm not talking the usual "Franklin is a snake oil salesman..." stuff - that was true when these guys committed. Something happened/is happening...

The stories he is telling are interesting, mostly because you can't usually get a look under the hood - every assistant coach is looking for his next job - it takes someone who is already fully burned to come clean.

However... treating Zach like an infallible narrator is probably not a great idea. 

The good thing is Day barely overlapped with him, so whatever dirt people throw back on Zach and the team will probably miss the current staff.

I give them borderline top 10. Think they are at least in the conversation with Auburn, Oregon, FSU, USC (albeit only right now), and I put them ahead of Washington and A&M. 

Best way to think of it is this: you are a top tier assistant coach and the HC job opens up all over the country. Which are the first 10 jobs you would take? I'm not sure there are definitively 10 I would take before PSU. At least the 8-15 range is fuzzy.

One of my wife's first memories of our dating era was when true frosh Terrelle Pryor fumbled on 3rd and 1 and took the L. My reaction - the pacing, the ranting, the recriminations - apparently remains memorable and meanwhile what I remember was thinking how well I did at muting it (because I really liked this woman I was dating).
