If going purely by rankings it's got to be this year or 2006.
If going by actual ability the football team is at that level, but I don't think the basketball team can yet compare to the Oden team.
I love this man.
To be fair...they always could have done that. They just chose not to because plot.
If he figures out how to act professionally I bet he'll go high in the draft. He should have a killer combine. He's a ridiculous athlete. If he gets good coaching to prep for the combine he could be a second round pick.
I wouldn't trade either of our guys for him right now. But if I could magically take DPJ after a year or two of our coaches working on him, that'd be tough to turn down. He has the talent to be one of the best in the country. He's just in a shitty program that doesn't know how to develop receivers.
I just don't understand Michigan players sometimes. I can understand being "forced" to predict wins by the media, or getting hyped up before the game and saying something that provides bulletin board material, or just thinking you're better because you've been playing good football against subpar Big10 teams before our game.
But then they have these guys like DPJ who continue to talk trash AFTER getting annihilated on the field and failing to do the one job he had (catch the balls thrown to him).
How can that end up a positive situation for him in any way? What a clown.
Nope, no idea.
I have a cousin named Hanna but that's about it. I'm originally from Columbus but have no immediate family named Hannah.
Love this one. I can just hear the thoughts of Harbaugh:
"Hoo boy, we got them here. We're gonna trick them for sure."
Wait...you're going to get your coffee NOW?
Stop Taylor, stop the Wisky offense. It's that simple.
Coan played well against Minny but our secondary is better and our front 7 can focus on stopping the run.
I expect Taylor to have a better game than he did the first time this year since it will be dry and warm (that helps us but also helps them). But I don't expect him to hit 100 yards rushing.
That was a lot of words to say "LSU will lose to either Clemson or OSU in the first round."
That's what it said, right?
He might break Haskins' total TD record while sitting for probably 3-3.5 total games over the course of the season. That's ridiculous.
Dobbins is probably a better kid and I love his fire.
Zeke is still on another level in terms of physical talent. JK might have a better jump cut than him. Other than that Zeke wins almost every category: speed, strength, blocking, receiving, etc.
Dobbins is an all time great at the school once this season concludes. But he isn't Zeke.
I really think it depends on which Jake Fromm shows up. He has really regressed this season but shown his potential at certain times. The reason they lost to SC was because he threw three interceptions. They lost the game, SC didn't win it.
If it's bad Jake Fromm, LSU wins by at least two scores. If it's good Jake Fromm it should be a game.
UGA has a great defense (better than Auburn's), but LSU is by far the best offense they've seen all year. I don't see them slowing Burrow down much.
Oh my...this might be my favorite one this year because it includes the entire conference.
What's your point?
Why can't we have a Brent Venerables (spelling?)? Someone who everyone wants but we somehow keep by our side forever and ever and ever.
He had to have needed Dabo's help burying a body or something, why does he stay?
Why? Honestly, why?
If your sole reasons is RB recruiting that means you refuse to look at the actual backs we have on the field. Is our RB room not performing well enough for you?
Sheesh, what an arm. He's making the same types of throws that Fields is making this year while still in high school (yes, I know it's inferior competition).
For a pro-style QB he has really quick feet and seems very mobile and actually pretty fast. Fast enough that the occasional RPO is doable with him if necessary.
It may even be less about development and really more about scheme here with our LBs. Obviously our players are getting developed from the ground up.
However, it's been repeatedly said that last year our defensive scheme was overly-complicated and that slowed the reaction times of our players down. This year it's simple and easy for our guys to diagnose a play and know what move they have to make. At this point in their development there is no huge jump in their athletic/physical abilities. It's about being in the right place at the right time.
Our coaches this year have epitomized what it means to put your players in the position to win. That's the biggest difference between the last two years.
At TTUN, Don Brown obviously doesn't run a system that puts their players in a position to win, coupled with having inferior players due to recruiting.
