Would Nick McCloud DB from NC State be a name In the portal we might be interested in? I know he’s eligible immediately and he has good stats in his last healthy year (2018)

11 starts, 51 tackles, a couple ints, and 8 PBU

he’s also 6-1. I don’t have the know how for film breakdown, so I’m asking opinions.

I 99% agree with this statement, however another possibility is that there is another person agreed to come when their team is eliminated form the playoffs... perhaps in SF. 
 

I don’t know a damn thing, but just leaving a 1% chance it’s someone else in the NFL ranks

It’s an NCAA rule book, it has over 200 pages. I did the “skimming” for you by telling you to direct your attention to page 90. If you don’t want to do your part and read it, then don’t comment and move along bro. Pretty simple

The link above is to the NCAA rule book. For those interested, targeting is outlined on page 90. The targeting rule protects defenseless players and lays out several examples of when a player is defenseless. In my opinion there is definitely a question as to TL being “defenseless” on this occasion. The only mention of a QB being defenseless is while in the act of throwing or having just thrown the ball. He did not throw the ball and had pulled the ball down to protect it and himself on this play. It also references a ball carrier being held up by another player and therefore not able to defend themselves against a hit. I don’t think this is applicable here either. 
 

Its very unfortunate for us that he was tossed out of the game on what was at the very least a questionable call. Didn’t there used to be 2 levels to targeting or am I misremembering?

Spooner, can you Please do a list of possible DB replacements that are signing at the late signing date? One similar to the ones you have been doing here all along would be awesome.

“Where are we with his teammate Eric B.? I think he's still uncommitted and highly UNDER-rated also.”

fify lol

Comment 02 Dec 2019

I was one of many folks critical of Studs. I admit the error. However, I am not a football coach and don’t know enough about line play to speak about that aspect. The reports I read led me to believe he was not a willing recruiter. I had/have a problem with that... but if the man molds players into what he has this year, just let him coach and let Brian Hartline go make the pitch. Jmho

It’s funny because it’s true! Kid can’t stick to commitments and the program can’t commit to playing good football. Lol

Comment 04 Nov 2019

I think you are prob on the right track as things stand today. But, if FSU is able to pry Brent Venables (sp) away from Clemson, all bets are off. There is a decent bet this kid has someone in his ear telling him to cover his bases.  Jmho 

Comment 14 Oct 2019

I remember reading something along the lines that Holmes is in line to graduate super early. I don’t know how the rules work for grad transfer kids with 2 years left? But I think he would be able to play next year without having to get a waiver. 

Comment 24 Aug 2019

I think the season will heat the recruiting game back up. No doubt people were neging Ryan Day not having experience and that made our team not as likely to succeed as in the past. What we have before us is an opportunity to shut those voices up. I for one can’t wait to see this team come out swinging. 

Comment 28 Jul 2019

Is there any chance Robinson is trying to build suspense for a decision many believed to be a done deal? Maybe the staff led BK to slaughter in an effort to help the kid? Prob not... but I’m trying to stay positive 

Comment 25 Jul 2019

I remember thinking that having classes locked up super early led to the demise of Mack Brown at UT. The lack of the early signing period made that seem like they were going all in long before it was necessary and leaving so much senior tape useless. However, with the current recruiting calendar... I think this is the new norm. Jmo 

Comment 11 Jul 2019

Went thru crazy flooding in 2016 in BR. I was lucky enough to stay dry and had a hotel worth of ppl staying over with us for quite some time. I don’t wish that pain I saw in my friends eyes on anyone... even Tigha fans. 

I also realize the tongue in cheek nature of the comment, I just wanted to 2nd the post above.

Comment 09 Jul 2019

Saying rankings don’t matter is silly, as is saying they are everything. The truth lays between the two statements and frankly, if feels like all of you are saying some version of this but only hearing the superlative from the other side. 

My thoughts are, the fictional recruiting national championship is worthless. I have always felt that anything in the top 5(ish) classes is plenty to build a national championship team if done consistently. 

Comment 06 Jul 2019

Love that this joker called us FakeDBU but former Buckeye corners start on both sides of the Saints defensive backfield. Also, do they still have Kurt Coleman at S too? Lol
