I was just reading this SBNation piece on Taggart and it mentioned how Coach had to adapt to "Florida's speedy talent." It got me thinking that if you follow college football you often hear this stuff about fast kids from the Southeast and Winnebago-sized lineman from Wisconsin, etc.
I'm wondering if there is any reliable data to back up these regional generalizations, or are they just canards. I recognize that there is more and/or better talent in certain parts of the country--but I mostly attribute that to areas that simply play more (or less) football due to culture, weather, etc. I'd like to know if there are truly regional differences in the kind of athletes that each part of the country produces.
[edit: This took a turn toward issues that I should have anticipated but somehow didn't. People are being adults about it and I'm ok with informed dialogue, but moms should feel free to shut 'er down if need be.]
Hey guys, you have enjoyed my work in the past, so thought I'd share another. Coordinated with Donovan Peoples-Jones to create this senior year highlight video for him. Enjoy!
UM target that seemed to be getting a bit of the slow play treatment. Nice pickup for Butch Jones and Music City Kids. Hoping for a finish of Jordan Anthony, Drew Singleton, and Willie Gay for UM at this point.
Some people had mentioned a few things in the Parking / Tailgating thread, but I thought this would be a good place to post any must-see or must-eat places in South Florida for people coming to town for the Orange Bowl aside from the obvious places that people think of like South Beach.
Here is a pro Jabrill article from Sports Illustrated.
SIAP, but my search didn't turn up anything. I snagged some tickets with friends and family for the Orange Bowl. Wondering if anyone has any insight regarding where to park or tailgate for the game. I'm still figuring out whether I'll have time to tailgate, so any information on general parking and tailgating would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
