how can Stroud elicit such a wide range of rankings:
247Sports = #24
Rivals = #51
ESPN = #104
That's a range of 80 spots. something's not right. These aren't preliminary rankings with 2 more years of HS to go, right? are there any other player that has such disparate rankings amongst the 3 services? just seems really odd. It's not like the kid was a complete unknown before yesterday.
It’s unfortunately that he can’t seem to put on enough weight. It must’ve also have an impact on his performance once he did. Not easy to increase your body weight by 50+lbs and still maintain the agility, speed, etc... hope for the best for him though.
Auburn vs North Carolina. Auburn should be ranked #1 if they beat the Tar Heels. If they lose, they should drop to #4. I mean, the Tar Heels are a perennial power!
It's gonna bit tough. we all hope that you came back because you're willing to go through "The Grind".
The Grind = (i) your loved ones telling you it's a horrible idea, (ii) your friends, colleagues, telling you, "you're a loser for going back to collegiate", and (iii) you gotta rebuild every year....
thanks, coach COOMBS.
welcome home...welcome home.
That's a great point to make, Dstacify, as several others have made the same, which is player development. Alford has proven himself beyond the shadow of a doubt. No one will ever complaint about getting a 5-star, but as long as Alford can develop the players that he DOES get, we're good. The only "blip" was probably Mike Weber. Though he was a bit "unlucky" to be stuck between Zeke and Dobbins.
Don't let the "stars" rattle you, but the play on the field dazzle you instead.
He made a general statement about how much better the Bucks are at developing players vs everywhere else. No need for 11W to create click-bait headlines and give fuel to other teams to use it against the good guys.
why can't I find Buckeye games on Youtube that's more than 20 minutes long for this past season? anyone can help?
If he leaves, he has a 50/50 chance of being a 1st round pick.
Ifhe stays, he has a 99% chance of being a 1st pick.
The probability of an injury at his position is <50%.
he should stay. And he will.
Mr Miller SR, you’ve done your job as a father and parent. No one will doubt the job you’ve done. Now, it’s time to let Jack do what he has to do. Which means, you just sit back, enjoy the ride.
We’ve heard more from you about your son then from your son. History tells us that’s probably not a good thing nor will it end well for Jack. So, just give things a chance to play itself out. Say, 3-6 months.
thank you, Mr Miller. I look forward to seeing your son dominate and be part of BuckeyeNation. I’m gonna be supporting him all the way.
1. we got 9 pts out of a possible of 21 in the red zone definitely didn't help; otherwise, the game would have been long over before halftime;
2. Fields was definitely not anywhere near 100% healthy; looks at best 75%;
3. our D were worn down toward the end of the game;
4. the 3rd quarter killed us with that roughing the passer penalty;
5. the reversed call on the INT is criminal (has been said many times).
Success in life comes down to luck and timing; we had ZERO luck on the evening.
fck the ESPN/ACC/SEC cartel
wishing the best for everyone on here for 2020
good points. Fields should improve in his second year as a starter. a First year starter finishing off with 3 INTs in a season is outrageously good.
huh...how about the biggest BOOOOOOOOMMMMMM of the season?!!
A good point. Rankings are great for conversations and message boards. But doing the hard work to identify, analyse talent and character, and put in place a program for individuals to succeed on and off the field is where results will come from. An annual improvement of 10-12% will result in a dramatically valuable player and person over a 3-4 year period.
It’s so blatant how pro SEC and ACC ESPN has become. Understand that they are tied to the hip, but there’s literally no pretense I’d even a modicum of objectivity.
Even on BB, the Buckeyes defeated 4 top 10 programs, and the headline on ESPN is “why Gonzaga should be #1... wtf.
so the Bucks beat Kentucky, with an 10-1 record, and this is the headline on ESPN.com....
F*CK ESPN. this is another example of how the media turns good folks into frustrated and angry souls...and that's just B.S.
All good points. Then again, it was Virginia,. the 3-2-6 works well against inferior opponents, which Clemson has faced all season, who get rattled when a couple of the 6 DBs starts blitzing the QB out of the scheme and also the fact that most of the teams Clemson beat don't have elite RBs (how did Cam Akers of FSU do when they played, does anyone know?)
To think that the Redskins (a sh*tshow of an organization) almost single-handedly ruined another young QB's career the way Haskins was treated earlier in the season. What a bunch of muppets. Using your first pick on a franchise QB and then not preparing him to be a starter when you don't exactly have an Aaron Rodgers or Brady (sarcasm) in your QB room is borderline criminal.
Technology, social media has forever changed the college football landscape. I'm forever grateful that the Buckeyes are one of the top 5 programs who gets a share of all the best recruits. The kids now have access to all the schools from the time they can use a smartphone. This access enables them to pick and choose the school of their choice, as opposed to being indoctrinated by the in-state school and family from a young age.
Imagine if we were going through the Cooper era now...ARGGHHHH!!! the horror...
A 2 years gentleman’s agreement should be in place and both sides should respect it. Boston College is not a dream job. Especially in 2019 when recruiting is national. The only reason for any coach going to coach at Boston College or any non top-25 football school is just to be a HC and get a big salary bump. While no one should fault a man for earning more money, DCs and OCs are not exactly starving these days at big time programs like the Buckeyes.
let’s be honest here, what’s the probability of BC becoming a top 10 program in the next 3, 5, 7, or 10 years with Hafley as the HC? Probably less than 10%. And this is not a disrespect to Hafley. The game has completely changed. There’s the Haves and then the rest. Look at Chris Ash. Mass is not a breeding ground for top rates high school recruits. So where’s Hafley gonna get his players from?
one year is not enough data to prove that you’re a good coach, Defense, Offence, and especially as a HC.
But the AD at BC, like everyone else, wants to keep his job and no one gets fired for hiring a DC that is a Broyles award finalist and turned a horrible defense into a very good one as your new HC. You know, the “well, the guy’s got amazing credentials and everyone thinks he’s awesome, so I did my job.”
Hafley and BC jumped the gun. Everyone’s worse off for it.
You couldn't be bothered to use the words, "...has the POTENTIAL to be better than JK..." and just wanted to throw out clickbait/response-bait material instead. responding would only embolden you, but not responding would also embolden you....SIGH.
If he's "pissed", we can live with it and so will he. agreed with the reality that it's all business.
We're all die-hard buckeyes fan, but if we were to become a college football HC, I'd suspect we'd be trying to poach as many Buckeyes coaches and recruits. Why wouldn't you? Doesn't mean you're not a fan/etc...presume that you'd want the best or give it your best shot at landing the best.
