A lot of people were commenting on the article that announced his transfer complaining and saying how he sucks and will be of no use to the team... where are those folks at now?
I think you're taking this whole thing too seriously. Denzel Ward is 20 years old and is about to make more money than you'll ever make by being able to do something better than you have ever been able to do anything. I honestly can't believe so many adults took this so seriously.
The second half felt like I was watching from a prison cell anyway
Nah I get it I just think the outrage is silly
Says the boy named Tracy
I’ve given out almost as many DVs on this thread as I had in the 3 years since I joined 11W. Kind of unreal how many assholes we have in our fan base. Some of y’all gotta get a grip.
Where have I seen this before
Seems super easy for darnold so far
Give it a rest, losers. It’s the cotton bowl.
Good for you kid. Go make that money. Had a hell of a time watching you this year and wish we could see you some more
They shouldn't, and fans should keep it shut about what an amateur football player decides to do to protect his opportunity to earn a serious living.
I'm over this argument. These are kids/young adults with the opportunity to make millions of dollars. It's likely that not a single person on this message board had the opportunity to make the amount of money that an top 10 NFL draft pick has the opportunity to make. If you're in a situation where you have an infant child and a family that could potentially be saved with that money, go for it. Forget what fans say about commitment and about bowl games. Do what is right for YOU and your family- and only that. If you want to sit out the national title game, be my guest. Do what is right for you. Sorry for the language, but fuck anyone that feels differently.
The potential for a life changing amount of money outweighs the potential to satisfy your college's football fans by fulfilling your commitment and playing football for free. Commitments are broken every day and with much less on the line. Do what's right for you and your family and don't think twice about it.
As a lifelong Giants fan, this season has been hard to stomach. I know what Landon Collins said about Eli is right- but personally I don't want my third year all-pro safety handling his position of leadership like this. He didn't strike me as someone that would let the media manipulate him to get quotes for a story and I hope that as his career progresses we don't see much more of it. Collins has potential to be an all-time great and I hope he reaches that potential without the teammate shaming headlines.
Speaking of Arizona State, Micky Mitchell has been having a solid year off the bench for the #3 b-ball team in the country. I wish he could’ve stayed a Buckeye
Do we have 11W writers feuding with former players now?
Thanks for the info
What is the difference between consensus AA and unanimous AA? And what is the difference between those two and just a regular old All American?
This has gotta be as close to the line as I've ever seen anyone get
I saw the news about the Ole Miss transfer to Michigan yesterday. I don't understand why Harbaugh keeps impeding the development of his QB recruits by bringing in transfers so they never get to play. Brandon Peters was good this season. Why is he not going to get the chance to learn and grow next year as a full time starter? Instead, he'll lose a QB battle to someone with more experience, and that QB will lead Michigan to an average season. Rinse and repeat.
Should’ve clarified the 2017 version. Didn’t think I needed to
I still got my big ten champs t shirt. One of the guys I play basketball with every day is a Wisconsin grad and I bet he wishes he had a big ten champs t shirt.
This season was fun sometimes (2nd half vs Indiana, 4th quarter Penn State, MSU, Michigan, Wisconsin) and other times, it wasn't that fun (1st half Indiana, Oklahoma, IOWA, 1st quarter Michigan). If you watched this team all year, as everyone here likely did, you have to have thought at some point "this team is not a national title contender." The thing was that at other points, we all likely thought "this team IS a national title contender."
There were a lot of ups and downs. I only thought a couple times this year that we were good enough to win it all. The rest of the time I thought we were good but not great. When I look back at this season, with it's conference title and it's 6th straight win over Michigan, I think we achieved as much as possible as a football team.
We were inconsistent. From game to game and even from quarter to quarter. Sure, not every national champ is undefeated and probably suffers a loss along the way. But we managed to look bad so often this year that it was hard to forget. It's hard to forget the first half of the Indiana game. It's hard to forget spotting Michigan and Penn State 14 point leads. It's hard to forget that we should've beat Wisconsin something like 35-7 instead of 27-21. It's obviously hard to forget Iowa. And the committee just couldn't forget it all. That's fair to me.
If we have Mercer on the schedule instead of Oklahoma we’d only have one loss
I’ll be at a wedding tomorrow. The bright side is it starts at 3:30 so I can head to a friends at 8 for a game and I get to pregame the game with an open bar. The not bright side? Nothing I guess really
