Yeah sucks I don't have that channel.
LSU was more dominant, bad calls and all. This metric has Clemson ahead of LSU after getting dominated, not credible.
FPI had Clemson 56% over LSU and still has them ahead. LSU won it on the field, this means nothing.
Don't see how you can say Young is inconsistent. He plays well almost every game.
He is the 2nd best player on the team. It's what all the advanced stats say as well. Great defender and offensive rebounder. He is much better than Andre Wesson or Duane Washington.
I think people underestimate the loss of Young. He's the second best player on the team. Look back at the Kentucky game, he had something like 11 points at half on great shooting. Without him they'd have been down double digits at half time. He's a great rebounder and defender. They are undersized without him.
Holtman is a great coach. If they're healthy it's a sweet 16 team and possibly better.
I honestly don't have much faith in Alford's recruiting. Don't think he's going to win many of these battles.
I guess everyone just wants a homer/sugar coated take. Zach is being objective. Consider the fact we had 0 corners last year. Everyone was saying corner was the priority for this year's class. Two corners (possibly just one) isn't enough. We start 3 corners, who's going to start in 2021? If Phillips is the difference between making or missing the playoffs in 2021, that would be a crushing blow.
There is no depth at corner for 2021. Are we going to start true freshmen?
If it's relative to need, why is DB a "B" when they desperately needed numbers? Plus they don't even have the high end talent to justify a lack of depth.
It isn't bad at all. But the class is getting "carried" a bit by the WR class. Some other positional groups look a little weak. Worried we might look a bit like Oklahoma or Ohio State last year down the road. BIA certainly seems like it's on hold after the last 2 cycles.
LOL you want to compare yourself to Purdue? Or do you want to compete for NCs?
Agreed. Noticed the articles about the OL have been a little optimistic. I guess I could see how Paris himself almost puts you in B+ territory, but there are a lot of low rated developmental guys.
Even if Wade comes back, it doesn't really fix the problem. The issue is 2-3 years, not next year. We brought in 0 dbs last year, don't forget.
And what's going to happen at corner in 2-3 years? Start true freshman? Fact is over 2 years we brought in a total of 2 corners, one who might be a safety. We start 3 corners. Yeah, that's going to be a significant problem.
B is too generous for defensive back. One pure corner who is a good, not great, prospect when we really needed a haul there after last year's debacle.
Phillips is ranked very highly and his tape is impressive. There was talk of him getting a fifth star. He was the gem of the db class.
You know we had ZERO db recruits last year right?
Two cb recruits in the last two recruiting cycles when we start 3 corners? Yeah that's going to be a big problem down the road. It is a crushing blow. Absolutely needed cbs in this year's class and Phillips was by far the best prospect we had.
Not much they can do. Just saying we're going to feel the hurt at corner down the road. Over two recruiting cycles we've brought in two total cb recruits who are good (not great) prospects.
Pretty bad for Ohio State if he leaves. Don't forget we had ZERO db recruits in last year's class. He was the gem of our db class this year and the only highly ranked corner. It is pure cope to say it's not a big deal or we'll find a 3* to replace him. He was one of the most important recruits in the class when you look at the depth at corner.
WRs are going to go, the room is too stacked. Harris and Gardner I see leaving. Other possible spots: I could see Wray and Wint going. Wint is a nice special teams player but that's it at Ohio State. McCall is another obvious choice.
Cornell got robbed. He's first team on PFF's list. Only honorable mention here?
I think it's a fair article. It's realistic. He isn't a highly rated recruit with many big offers. I was a guy who wasn't too excited about him but now that he's in the fold, I'll be rooting for him. Let's hope he can be Carlos Hyde-like who was one of my favorites.
Not bashing him at all. He's a very good high school player. It's just about the measurables. A 4.7 40 time is a 4.7 40 time.
I'll pass on Williams. Too slow for a guy who isn't 6'2. Seems like a good fit for ISU.
