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. 

Comment 21 Jan 2020

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). 

Comment 21 Jan 2020

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?

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.

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!) 

Comment 16 Jan 2020

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.

Comment 16 Jan 2020

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.

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.
