Eh, its dumb and our media department crushes anything/everything they do. 

That said, its almost funny (in a really strange way) and gimicky and they got a decent commit. But, I'd be cringing so damn hard if that was Day and Team doing cartwheels.

This is bad news for their rival... scUM. 

Really a great pickup for Maryland. They really arent far off from being at least a mediocre team. Demeioun Robinson coming in 2021, and their 2020 class was ranked 6th in the BIG (still, a huge talent gap from tOSU). They could really use him as a recruiting pitch to other offensive players too.

Checking in at number 9 we have Trey Sermon (Ohio State). Sermon transferred to Oho State this spring as a grad transfer after losing his job at Oklahoma to a knee injury and Kennedy Brooks. Before the injury Sermon was a complete running back with a good blend of size, speed, instincts and receiving ability. He averaged over 7 yards per carry before an injury cut his season short. Sermon has had a tough injury history that has never allowed him to reach his potential, but at Ohio State he will have a great opportunity to do that. JK Dobbins was phenomenal last year in the same offense and now Sermon will have a chance to make his own name.

He's going to do very well in our offense, even if he ends up splitting time with Master at some point. 

Will he be on the same level as Chuba, Etienne, or Harris? Probably not, but he shouldn't be far behind.

Help this thread out a tad, heres what one scout had to say (I think this is enough to put the Hairball conspiracy to bed) :

"One of the things we do is evaluate a player's performance against equal talent, and in 2019, we had six games like that for Michigan, and we gave him a draftable grade in two of them. We gave him a draftable grade in three of the six from 2018, and that's just not enough for us to use a pick on a guy," the scout said. 

"I think the biggest thing is, 'What does he do well?'" the second scout said. "He's not very accurate. He doesn't have a big arm. His deep ball efficiency is below-average. His mechanics are really a concern. I don't know if he works with a private coach or not but someone should have rebuilt him. He throws from so many arm angles and it's lazy. Guys like Mahomes and Rodgers do it because it's required. Patterson seemed to do it because his mechanics are shoddy." 

"He does that in the NFL and he's going to get himself killed,"

I have no idea if its a good fit for him, but I would interview AND turn down the position if I got $130k/month. 

In all seriousness, I could see him at least being moderately successful no matter where (if) he lands, including Wake. 

Comment 21 Apr 2020

Maybe not this year, but it will be interesting to see if NC and the fighting-Mack-Browns can get to some level that they can even challenge Clemson. With some of their recruiting efforts, it might be possible. Also, how refreshing would it be to see some other decent team out of the ACC that is not FSU/Miami (for those of us that grew up in the 80s/90s/00s)

Data I saw showed medical researchers making over 21K month at some places.

Using Harvard Law as an example is very misleading. I can assure you that most annual salaries in the medical research fields (PhDs that are non-MDs) at OSU is much closer to 100k per year. Meanwhile, the majority of post-docs (those with a PhD) and graduate students (earning their PhD), the ones doing the 'real work', are most certainly in the $20k-$50k annual salary range.

Nice, concise summary of what they went through that night.

Seattle, I'm beginning to think that I enjoy reading comments from the realist moreso than the delusional fans. Those poor fellows (the realist) sound so broken and sad. 

Comment 03 Apr 2020

This has to be a joke. Second kid with no power 5 offers in the class and you expect people to stop fretting? Go look at OSU's class and tell me how taking kids like this helps us beat them? 

This one just warms my heart.

This kid is going to get his ass run over by Treveyeon Henderson in 2 years. 

This is a fact.

The difference between the offensive and defensive commits for this class is stark. This could be one of the best offensive classes and worst defensive classes we've seen for a while

At least he/she got the latter point right.

I'll give ESPN credit, they do a good job on documentaries. This looks pretty exceptional. 

Edit: wow, just noticed this is a 10 part series?!? Curious to see how they stretch this out over 10 episodes, but everyone is probably starving for anything sports related and will eager to watch every second of this series. 

Comment 27 Mar 2020

I think a bigger, more immediate question: will we get any summer practices in? Or, fall camp. 

It's hard to envision going into Game #1 with only a handful of spring practices and no summer practices of any kind.
