Seems like in W Basketball we lose a lot of recruits - he recruits a lot of top rated players but a lot of them leave right away too
I mean Bill Gates was on his plane so many times... so many times... so much so even the NYTimes wrote about it... and it seems as if this isn’t sticking to him so unless there is a smoking gun - it’s going to be difficult so definitely do much u less these women take a huge risk and go public with names...
I was staunchly against the NIL for a long time - I do see a value in a college education- but I also think the world has changed and it is inevitable to have these athletes earn income off their NIL...
I feel there could be positive outcomes:
1. More players could stay four years JF they aren’t a sure fire first round pick if they are making $100K from a car dealership for instance
2. More Marquee players could play in non CFP bowl games if the bowl game compensates them to promote the game and offers a better insurance policy for them
I suppose my perception after hearing Jeans Smith on the radio talking about how the marquee names are less than 1% of D1 athletes - and the non revenue athletes could make significant income on NIL - my two daughters are top 50 golfers in the world for their ages - why couldn’t they run a summer golf camp for kids or give online instruction? It seems as if the world now offers the ability for these athletes to justly profit from their skill set - but I do think there needs to be some rules...
Recruiting back then was an extremely inexact science A I actually have the Athlons from Earle’s first two years - his first class (after his first season) was #1 in the country - we signed the #1 player in the country thst year - Kelvin Lindsay - who was ok - but certainly no #1 recruit in the country .... I feel he did a solid job recruiting but was dealing with a much stronger TTUN who took top players from Ohio and we didn’t nationally recruit too much - funny - I remember in 1986 - Par O’Morrow was the #34 recruit in the entire country as a kicker - and I also remember one year in the mid 80’s TCU and South Carolina ties for first in recruiting - inexact science indeed
I’m pretty sure TCU backed out of the game this year -which is how we played UC - but to be clear - has Alabama best Auburn - they get in over OU and miraculously LSU stays the 2 seed and we are the #1 seed playing Bama in the Fiesta Bowl...
I used to really like Cowherd but he is so commercial now - nothing seems sincere
More correctly - they took JK out by ripping his ankle in the pile - and tried to put him in concussion protocol - they are a dirty team.
Thanks for the kind words - both my daughters are actually top 30 world ranked golfers and the older one (11)has played AAU BBall in northern VA since she was in first grade - so it’s great they understand competition and the razor thin margin between success and defeat
They have been raised in the crucible of Ohio State culture since they came out of the womb - so it’s fun to get to share these moments with them...
Damn the 1979 AFC Championship Game and the Oiler TD thst wasn’t - replay has jumped the shark for some time in the NFL and now it’s like that in college A replay is the HOA in Del Boca Vista and has way overstepped their boundaries
need a lock down corner to emerge as well as a HR threat out of the backfield - and Zach needs to really improve over the off season to be a Chase Young type difference maker if we can get these - we are back in the playoffs next year and if not - will be a challenge to win the B G
It’s DieHard - Bucks are John McLean and Clemson is the snarky terrorist
Losing Jeff Okudah on signing day would be crushing.... this is like losing Annette ... maybe...
This was very well done and accurate - if anything this will create some of the same motivation we had vs Alabama in 2014 which actually is the best thing we could ask for... bring it on I say - we’d have to beat them eventually anyway... I’m pumped up - Go Bucks!
It was more a function of JT not being able to throw the ball downfield - so the issue was more the loyalty to JTB... combined with the issues of Warriner and Beck... and Michael Jordan getting hurt early all led to a slow motion blowout...
look at our game vs TTUN - what in that game indicated that we could throw a pass downfield?
Airfare is the big issue - seems like from DC - flights are $1200 round trip? Was thinking about going but doesn’t seem like the airfare makes it a tough get with a family of 4... Wifey may strangle me if I booked these haha - anyone having any airfare luck?
The band part at the start reminded me of all the extraneous stuff in close encounters- the rest is great
Always 1979 - chuck hunter - blocked punt - magic!
Enjoy - hope it’s only the first of many of these special moments
