What you are telling me is: ESPN really didn't bother doing any work for the last few months.
he will start as a freshman and convince himself it was the right decision, and get drafted in the 5th round in a few years.
247 itself hasn't done its own final update, which I would expect next week (given Rivals is going this week - last year they did theirs end of January).
The Fleming thing- I disagree with but, whatever, his HS team doesn't throw the ball much so his final landing spot is fine.
PJJ and Stroud - consider me flummoxed. Stroud has done it all at camps and games and should be rising, not falling. PJJ - um, what am I missing?
The package deal kids pretty much never wind up being a package deal.
I 100% endorse your main point. If you are going to say that some kids and some teams cheat, then explain what you mean or don’t say it.
I have been thinking about this over the last week. I started watching Buckeye football in 1980 as a kid.
2019 was the most fun I have ever had watching Buckeye football, even considering how it ended (including the sequence where I pointed at my TV and screamed "F you!" 20 times after the fumble overrule).
Loved the team. A lot of joy in the way they played. Loved seeing Ryan Day coach. Just loved this season.
Weird as hell to have the Michigan kid preferring OSU and the Ohio kid preferring Michigan, but 'cruiting ....
"Get a burner phone, Coach!"
I think your play on "corn bread" has racist overtones. I'm reporting you to the mods or the police.
Well, when Coombs comes through town like a tornado, I think they will be OK
Last year, 247 sports finished its final rankings for the 2019 class on Jan. 23. So I think we basically have a few things left for the 2020 threads:
- Coombs and whether he closes on Martinez if the Titans ever lose!!
- The final rankings and whether individual players or team rankings move as a result - likely next week.
- Final signing day and any unlikely big news from us or other top 5 schools.
Then it's on to 2021! (Birm today talked to Tony Grimes who is waiting on Hafley's replacement. Coming soon!)
Or undervaluing Cooper and Hilliard or undervaluing the 2021 class. Point is, we don't know better than the coaches how to balance all of these things including team culture which I would argue was the best it has been in many years in 2019.
Well last year I thought it was a bad idea to bring in Dawand, and now he looks like a future starting tackle, so I'm not sure I'm that qualified to to offer an opinion on your supposedly obvious questions. Saying it's obvious that a second RB is a clearly better than Leroux and Martinez requires a look into the future.
I feel like a little humility from those of us in the cheap seats might be in order. Especially when we are talking about 18 year olds and what their next 4 years look like. Sheesh.
If they push kids out, they are assholes. If they don't, they are bad at their jobs. Can't win.
I'm good riding with Coach Day on this one.
Sort of, though I think we point to Don Brown. And even with Brown, my point would be that he runs a scheme that cannot win against equal or better talent - it is a scheme that works only when Michigan has a talent advantage.
But I also think that after 2018 we were thinking that pretty much anything would improve the Schiano/Davis scheme.
My favorite social media burn ever
Olave is a future All Pro and a clutch Buckeye.
Making a mistake because you are trying to make a play for your team is 100% understandable. Players who are always looking to make a play are sometimes going to have that happen, and I will take that bargain every time.
One of my favorite players of the last 5 years.
Can't wait until this is the next line of defense - he had two wads of cash, one real for the seniors, the other fake for the underclassmen.
1. Players should get paid.
2. Since they can't, rules should be enforced fairly across teams.
3. Our best player missed two games because he bought his girlfriend a plane ticket worth basically what OBJ was handing out.
4. Our coach was fired and barred from coaching for lying to the NCAA which LSU just blatantly did.
Stacked roster talent-wise.
I'm looking for Proctor and Tyreke Johnson and Petit-Frere to show out. Lots of hype, time for the production.
And we need an RB or committee that can make us more like 2019 than 2018. Fields' legs will help but we need a credible threat out of the backfield.
I don't think you are arguing for sodomy, I mostly just think you are a clown.
Related note: Rashan Gary still considered a project with upside.
This is incorrect.
I mean, after our loss, we didn't cover ourselves in glory with our analyses.
