You should be in the free trial period. Hulu Live is probably where most people will go.
I try to look at the SP+ at more of a "30,000" foot view than worrying about whos #1 vs #2, etc. I see a few tiers in there.
Tier One: Bama, OSU Clemson, and Georgia. Don't think anyone can argue that in one way or another, these are your favorites. Georgia maybe a hair behind the other three, but enough ahead of the next tier to keep them out of Tier two. All capable of 12-0 or 11-1 regular season records.
Tier Two: PSU, LSU, Florida, OU, Wisky, A&M, Auburn. All very good teams, All more likely in the 11-1 to 9-3 range. I think Florida is the team that is most likely of the group to outperform their peers. Not buying A&M until they can knock off at least one of the Tier One or Two teams they play (Bama, LSU, Auburn). They finish with Bama and LSU though so they be flying high before then with Auburn as the only probable loss up to that point. I think Wisconsin is most likely to end up in the Tier Three by seasons end.
Tier Three: Notre Dame, Oregon, Texas, USC, Michigan, North Carolina. This is the strangest group I think. Lots of traditional powers that have underperformed thier "status" in the last decade, along with some newer blood. A win over any of these would obviously be considered a high quality win by seasons end. 10-2 is probably the ceiling for these teams, possibly 8-4 or 7-5 if things really slip. I think Oregon and Notre Dame are the most likely to outperform expectations in this group.
Tier Four: UCF, Tennesse, Minnesota, Ok St, Memphis, Miami-FL, Washington, Nebraska. This essentially rounds out the Top 25. Solid teams, but I definitely see the SP+ predicting an improved season compared to last year for a lot of these teams (UT, Miami, Nebraska). Minnesota finished higher than this tier last season, but SP+ is not one to overreact to one year surges (or declines). I could see them the most likely team here to break into a higher tier.
It was both of his younger brothers, Colin and Carter. They both have their own careers. I'm sure they were just helping him get started. I doubt they planned on being considered "co-hosts" for a podcast indefinitely.
He has three technique written all over him
He sounds like a small town southern kid that only knows what he knows and isn't real interested in getting outside his comfort zone. Also sounds like he's been making strides in this area and OSU is growing on him. He'll love the football part of the official visit but I could see him not being "comfortable" that far from home.
Here is the all 22 on youtube if anyone wants it. Watching that play I really don't think it's a guaranteed TD. Safety made a nice break and Olave would have had a very contested catch. Maybe PI. Who knows. Fields stared him down the whole time.
This will still be a top 5-10 defense next year. Harrison and Smith will be havoc off the edge which will help the DB's. We may have to be more multiple to help Banks/Brown/Riep/Proctor but I think with the extra time in the system they will perform at a high level. Harrison was great too but I think next we see a lot more Teradja Mitchell somewhere in the mix along with Hilliard. Will be a solid four man rotation between those two ILB spots.
I see no difference between Wisconsin, Auburn, Penn St, Michigan, Florida, Oregon, LSU, UGA and Oklahoma next year. Florida could very well overtake UGA next year.
Utah had their best season in a long time. Not ready to put them there yet.
Sounds reasonable if it was the OL guys (Davis, Munford, Myers) but I wouldn't use the "Likely going pro" to describe them.
Wade is the only one I think that has a real decision. Okudah, Young, and Dobbins are 100% gone. Wade maybe. No one else gets a first round grade yet.
I think getting Coombs will make Wade seriously consider coming back because that was his recruiter that he trusted when he chose OSU. His dad was vocal about he constant upheaval of DB coaches being a negative but I imagine Coombs is the one and only coach that would make them reconsider leaving. Okudah and Young are definitely gone.
It's almost identical to the stuff he ran at Michigan. Scheme wise it has Mattisons fingerprints all over it. Here's the better proof:
Mattison $1,100,000 salary
Hafley $950,000, same as Yurcich and Wilson, neither of who call plays on offense but have "coordinator" titles.
The higher paying guy that wasn't even given a position to coach, is definitely calling the plays. I'll put it another way - what the hell would Day be doing paying a guy the most on the staff to NOT call plays and NOT coach a position?
Hafley didn't call any plays. Mattison is the DC and play caller. Hafley coach DB's to play Cover 1 and Cover 3, and he did it very well. Coombs or any another proven DB coach will do just fine.
I like stories like this. Recruits are more than just stars and decimal points. Stories like this help us understand that recruits have unique thoughts and perspectives like all human beings. It's not a slight at OSU in the least.
in 2014 it seemed like the team played with a chip on their shoulder as the underdog and used that "fire" to step up to the occasion as the end of the season got near. Does this team have the same fire? How "disrespected" does this team feel?
