I think you don't get what he's saying? Kelee Ringo has been rumored by multiple people in subtle ways as a player that wants to be paid money for his services. Nothing more than that.
Going to anything >Tier 1 program as a 5-star caliber, instant impact type player is dumb if its a football decision and I don't even think that is debatable. There is no one in their right mind that can say otherwise really. If you want to see what I am talking about, just go to 247 sports and click on a random year and look through the first 30 names. How many of them went to top 5 schools and how many didn't? How many of each were "busts." It all depends on the kid, but the resources, competition, exposure, and success that comes with playing at a top 5-10 program on a top unit in the country helps a TON at the end of the day. That's just how it is. Some guys overcome it, but its definitely a lower probability outcome if you are actually as talented as you think.
I say we void Jeff Hafley's contract and take the money and send a screenshot of it to Kelee Ringo and see what happens. How's that sound?
I've been pretty confident this would be the case all along as it normally is with elite teams, especially in college. I think it would've been a bigger problem for LSU bc they go 5 wide so much with an empty backfield and no help. Look at how Wisconsin and Penn State played Chase. Chase was killing teams but they played him relatively straight up. Why? Well they though, "oh well we are better than Miami of Ohio and Cincinnati. That won't happen to us, we just need to play our game." A few weeks later Penn State literally said pregame we are just gonna let him play normal and we are gonna have to counter him by making plays. This was a general miscalculation on their part bc making plays on Ohio State is incredibly difficult and Chase Young makes a LOT of plays that you have to counter.
Now you look at how Michigan treated it because they finally understood, "hey guys we played penn state and wisconsin and they are pretty good at football and this dude absolutely smoked them." They knew that they had to stop him at all costs and so did Wisconsin bc they watched what happened the first time.
I think that Clemson is basically going to assume that "he can't do that to us." This will be a major issue and its just an ego thing. The key for them is that they need to have plans in case, you know, he's just insane and kills them too. If they have answers he'll be an issue for a bit and then they get into a different set. If they don't Chase Young can end a game with 4 sacks and shut down the entire offense at times. I would be surprised if Chase isn't a key factor early. If he is also a key factor late Clemson is gonna have some issues. They'd be a lot better off IMO selling out to protect and playing undermanned downfield.
Who is pro Utah on Twitter?
They took our recruit last year bc we took the best player on their roster...
Its not that he doesn't want to, its that taking literally any professional coach and draw them back to college is difficult, especially if they are older because the quality of life outside of football is better as an NFL coach from a time perspective. There are a lot of guys that will and a lot that wont. Something can be fun for a while but take a toll after a while and once you get into the NFL style, it can definitely be hard to come back to that really intense and time consuming job. No one knows what he wants but it is a fair question to ask about literally any current NFL coach
He would be if he came to Ohio State and I think that is kinda the conversation he has to have. He has been a head coach and he needs to figure out if he wants to be one again or if he wants to coast in Tennessee for the foreseeable future until he has to go somewhere else. You're not getting an HC job as the Titans cornerback coach, regardless of whatever else happens. If you go to Ohio State as teh co-DC and call plays, with his track record he'd be an HC in 2 years if he is successful and he wants to coach. HC is a grind, especially in college and I think he understands that but the Ohio State DC is gonna get you an HC job about 50 times faster than the Titans CB coach
I'd be pretty surprised if both CJ Stroud and Jack Miller are not or have not been the starting QB on a top ten team four years from now. I believe that they both kinda know that which is why they are both willing to come. At this point in the transfer portal and the recent success, QBs shouldn't be that scared to compete early at an elite program under an elite coach because there are always good football teams that need a QB.
Look at Burrow at LSU. Is Joe Burrow the QB he is today if he spends the first 3 years of his career at LSU? IDK, maybe, but I kinda think that his experience in OSU's offense helped him learn the new offense that they implemented this year because it is more like what he would have been asked to do at Ohio State. Ohio State QBs and Ryan Day QBs are gonna have a lot of clout on the transfer market moving forward especially if they are legitimately heavily recruited and top-end talents before they got to ohio state. Do you think Auburn or Florida or Georgia or LSU might want a polished QB to step in down the line? Or even other teams like maybe a Texas or USC ect.
I think OU is gonna trend like OSU with Riley establishing himself as an elite QB coach and either this year or next as Rattler takes over and the reigns over to the next 5 star they get. There could always be a grace year where an elite guy pops up as a one year rental but I really don't think that is their long term plan while it has worked recently.
If I am a QB, I do what I can to learn those offenses under these head coaches and if I have to go somewhere as a junior I get to literally pick any school in the country where I know 1. the team will be good 2. I will be the starter because you don't have to go to a school and project 3 years down the line, you jump right in as THE guy
No offense to Clark or anyone that plays corner but if you think you are going to lead your team to a national championship at corner, you might want to think again. #1. At Ohio State, you will get thrown at MORE and have MORE plays to be made early in your career, which is good. #2. You have more defensive line pressure, which equals picks. #3. You have more talent around so you can play whatever position fits best like slot or outside in his situation instead of being thrown at WR1 every game in the pac 12. #4. As a corner, you should show up more because nothing happened more than bc you are the best player on the field and if you ARE the best player on the field at Utah in three years, teams won't give you a chance to make plays. Jeff Okudah is the best corner in the country and teams HAD to throw at him at times because the corners around him were also really talented and he would be up against the opponents WR1 and their WR1 was their only option. #5. Ohio State DBs get the benefit of the doubt and its a lot easier to flash. Ohio State is known for DBs and if you are starting and look good at Ohio State, you WILL be a top pick. You can be identified at Utah, but guys that go to ohio state and play corner well do NOT slip. AT ALL.
I feel like if Ohio State is aware of this happening, they're in no trouble. Would seem like that has to come from Martinez himself and if he is telling OSU that, its not gonna work. If some other girl comes around talking shit about your girlfriend to you and then you go and tell your girlfriend about it, usually you are laughing at them not dumping the girlfriend for the girl talking shit. Isn't that kinda shitty by Northwestern? I think that Cam thinks he's really good and IDK how that would fly with a kid that thinks he 100% belongs and has never really failed. It's one thing if its a guy that people are unsure about why he's even a take for OSU, but that doesn't seem to be the case with Martinez. Thats you basically telling a guy he's not good enough. Doesn't really make sense to me and it would only be concerning if they told him that and no one knew about it.
