Tagavailoa is a camp QB-he is great at throwing to predetermined spots, but if he is forced to adjust his throws due to coverage, or the receiver is forced to make an adjustment-not so good-see the NC game last year. And say what you will, Fields showed a helluva lot more as a true freshman than Tagavailoa or Justin Fields or Kyler Murray.........

To answer your question-NO-b/c video game geeks don't understand the physical realities of sports. You can't simulate on a video game what the tOSU defense did to DaU in the Fiesta Bowl-they physically destroyed them to win the game. Ever notice how the running game in video games isn't like the real thing, grinding and controlling when done right, with the OL imposing their will?

Lol, DV trolls are a fact of life on 11W. Thanks. Hoops insiders are probably more reliable/better connected than football types, in my opinion, but, as I said, the environment is much more fluid.

Hoops recruiting is incredibly fluid at the highest level, with prospects switching classes and HSs regularly, and top rosters changing overnight. It’s not like football where recruits A-can read the roster for the next few years, and B-have to mentally picture themselves at a school for 3-4 years. Decommits don’t happen as much b/c players take their recruiting to the last minute and coaches have to roll with this. Making predictions 6 months out is almost a guessing game with all the variables at play-many of which have little to do with a player loving the actual school for academics and overall fit.

People in Cincinnati don’t exactly share your sentiment any more. Everyone still loves Pete b/c of his legacy, but after the revelation of his affairs with underage girls in the 70s, no one wants to bang the drum for the HoF for Pete-that was the straw that broke the camel’s back for many in the community, including the longtime media.

I think you overestimate the pockets of the boosters. Some kind of fraudulent SUV lease, or helping out grandma with bills every month-absolutely. Financing a high six figure income under the table for assistants or star players-the boosters who do that kind of stuff don’t have that kind of cash.

His brother signed w/ Oregon last year, so anyone but the Ducks would appear to be a long shot at the moment. tOSU probably as much of a chance as anyone outside Eugene.

Bo (and everyone else) knows that Jim Brown is the GOAT and it isn’t close. As for Brown’s thoughts on the matter, he said, “Next to me Earl Campbell is the second best RB ever and I don’t really care about it beyond that!”

Adidas Sambas and Stan Smith’s will be iconic forever. Fashion is fleeting, style is eternal.
