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.

9.Milton (still says we beat UGA in a tough battle)
6. Kourt Williams
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.
1. J and G’s - Toledo
2. Rubinos- Bexley
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.
But can anyone tell me if that basketball recruit is thinking about coming here?
I view it as a tip of the hat to these threads which now have enough traffic that posters from other sites come here to attract eyeballs.
Most insiders seem to think Morant to Michigan is a done deal. Interesting you came away thinking not so much?
“Prohibition: well, actually....” is the kind of scorching hot take I need to get the blood going.
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.
Just making sure that you know he didn't die. He just left 11W.
Is there a statute of limitations for when I can make fun of him again?
If there is one thing we should have learned from the Zach/assistant coaches and spouses saga here, it is this: a good looking wife may not be as awesome as it seems from the outside.
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...
Should have waited 3 minutes longer as a tribute to our old friend 68 (RIP, takes long inhale).
I just went and looked up supraliminal and am pleased that you have elevated the discourse here.
Might be a vasectomy.
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.
now that one is puzzling.
btw, relevant to nothing, A&M is playing Bama, Clemson and Georgia this year. that is a tough slate.
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).
I think he was hungry. And there was pizza. And pizza is good. That's my best guess.
Yes! They really are Charlie Weiss Notre Dame right now - all puffed out for almost winning.
Very helpful and interesting.
