+1. It seems like we're hearing more kids say the wanted to get the process over with early when they commit. There was just the Mariotti interview where he talked about Zach Harrison hating the process as well. Doesn't seem good for the kids or coaches.

Agreed. I wouldn't want his style to spread to other posters, but I've enjoyed trying to figure out what he's saying for almost a couple of decades across 3-4 sites.

Once in a generation? Not sure about that. Both Lawrence and Tua are completely different QBs under pressure. They just dont get pressured a lot. Like the Heisman winning QBs at Oklahoma in the early 2000s. Easy to look great when you have a clean pocket every time you drop back. Conversely, Burrow was pressured on nearly a third of his drop backs this season and put up some of the best numbers of all time. To me, that's a better indication of greatness.

Coach O is probably hoping that Ryan Day will coach him up another prospect in 2-3 years.
Comment 15 Jan 2020
Yep. Strike while the iron is hot. No way he gets more marketable next year coaching one of the guys behind Burrow as a 1st year starter.

Urban consistently placed leadership as the top quality he valued for QBs.  A close second was mobility.  Arm talent and ability to read defenses and make progressions were not the most important things for him.  By his criteria he made the right choice playing JT.  I think Day has different criteria and that is what played out with the Haskins / Burrow decision process.

The thing that bothered me is that the replay official referenced a 'football move' not being made. That's not part of the college rulebook. That's from the NFL. Harder to get it right if you're using the wrong criteria.

I think Olave thought Fields was scrambling and was trying to get open for him. With Fields still in the pocket he should have continued his route across the middle. Dont blame the kid, he was trying to make a play.

The guys played hard but there will be a lot of regrets about this game. Too many mistakes. 1 less and we win.
