well that didn't age very well!
Does Rico Gathers count? He didn't even play football in college tho, just somehow got an NFL job after playing 4 years of basketball at Baylor
I seriously hope these guys never stop talking
He didn't post it on his twitter like he did the rest of his offers so I'm guessing that's a mistake from the website
Taulia Tagovailoa is going to Maryland. Not that they will be any good, really ever, but I think it’s clear more than ever that the Big Ten and SEC are far and away the best football conferences.
I like his offer list. Those offers from UT and OU are typically what you look for in measuring a Texas prospect that is just beginning his recruitment. I think this offer will blow him up a bit. I'd bet he'll end up at least a top 350 player. Manvel High is a solid program
while I agree with maybe backing off of the "great" characterization the rest of your point comes off as pretty disrespectful and not really true. Look up Dane's senior year stats and compare them to the other guys you mentioned. While, obviously, he wasn't the prolific return man that Ginn was, he had more receiving yards than Ginn had in any of his years. His senior year was about equal in production as Jenkins'. He was much more productive than Thomas. About equal to Devin Smith. Saying he gets "unwarrented love" more than any other player is outrageous. I can't remember the last time I saw Sanzenbacher's name on this board lol.
The Trey Lance hype is literally only a thing because people want to be bold and deliver the next hot take. Literally every justification I've seen of him is that he had a great TD-INT ratio and great stats last season. Everyone seems to ignore what Justin did last season against FBS programs every week:
14 games, 3273 yards passing, 238/354 - 67% completion, 42 TD's, 3 INT's, 137 carries - 484 yards and 10 TD's
16 games, 2786 yards passing, 192/287 - 67% completion, 28 TD's, 0 INT's, 169 carries - 1,100 yards and 14 TD's
Really the only thing that stands out about Lance is his zero INT's (which is much easier when you are only throwing the ball 17-18 times a game like he is) and his rushing ability. I think it's very clear Justin is the far more prolific passer and offers more upside in the passing game as a prospect. In addition, Lance's RB was what seems to be a RB by committee - No NDSU RB ran for over 1,000 yards and Lance led the team in carries. Lance's rushing stats are solid but the dude was the majority of the rushing game. I would bet that Fields would put up similar if not better numbers against far better competition if Fields was the #1 rushing option. All in all, I don't think I've ever been more annoyed by something these self proclaimed draft experts have said.
didn’t we sign a punter in ‘19? Why would we get a punter for this class?
somebody tell me why I read this as “Chargers Special Teams Holder” lol
Dobbins to Baltimore. Hated that he fell but hard to ask for a better situation
the draft on TV is like 5 minutes behind. All the picks are being reported on twitter way before it’s announced on TV
I know, that’s why I said “I guess he is from Lexington”
lol. kentucky? I guess he is from Lexington
awesome post bsk! stuff like this, when it’s done the right way, is what makes 11W a special place. Do you by chance have any stories from the mass transfer exodus in 2016/the end of matta’s tenure?
one year, 3 years, 4 years, doesn’t matter to me. As long as we win games and are nationally competitive year in and year out.
yeah, rumors on other Big Ten boards is that Iowa and Fran McCafferey tampered with Carton and OSU found out. I there will ever be any validity tho
At the very worst he'll be Andrew Dakich. And Dakich did an admirable job in 2017-18 for a career walk-on.
Just now, Louisiana Monroe Guard Michael Ertel entered the portal as a grad transfer. He averaged 16 points, 3 rebounds ans 3 assists. was 2nd team all-Sun Belt. Not sure how well he fits with this roster though. At the very least he seems like an upgrade from Muhammad on the offensive end.
I went and checked out Jae'sean Tate's brother after I saw he was mentioned and although he plays in a very weak conf. at Northern Kentucky, he still put up respectable numbers. 14 points per game, 4.5 rebs per game, 4 assists per game, and shot 54% from the field. Made the All-defense team in the Horizon league. He's also 6-6, 170 on the team website and listed as a guard. I'm not saying he's any better than the options we're already going after but I'm intrigued.
Exactly my thoughts. Muhammad is not worth panicking about. The guy showed no offensive progression last year and regressed defensively. Not a huge loss and very easily replaceable
Really hoping we put the full court press on Trey Wertz
It’s reported that Muhammad wanted more of an offensive role. Muhammad is a very limited offensive player who showed no development from his freshman year to sophomore year. Holtmann’s not going to make the vocal point of his offense someone who hasn’t proved anything. While I don’t have any clue what (if anything) is going on, I 100% trust Holtmann with the program. We as fans need to not be so quick to panic, Luther was at best our 3rd best guard last year.
I’m not panicking. Luther, while a pretty decent defender, was a very very limited offensive player. I am happy that Duane won’t be losing any rotational minutes to him anymore. We still have a solid rotation. C.J, Duane, Sueing, Towns, Liddell, Young, and Jallow are all very capable. Going to need the freshman to actually step up this year but i’m not worried. this isn’t as big of a loss as it would’ve been if it were Duane.
