You don't want to pay players? Okay...fine, that's another topic for another day. But use that money that people want to use to pay players to take care of shit like THIS! (note for those that don't know...the NCAA pays/reimburses for travel and expenses for postseason play...all sports. They can't afford to bring everyone just like they started paying more for families to travel in post season play after Calipari complained).

Because he's about to win what, his 3rd national championship?
He's been a clown at every stop pre-Alabama, but he's been awesome at Bama...some of the play calls he makes, finding matchups, and not being afraid to abandon the gameplan and take what the defense gives has been special. Especially with the lack of talent he's had at QB.
|1 day 10 hours ago||Highly doubt it...||
Ed Oliver was a starter from the second he walked on campus, just like Clowney.
If Gary goes to Houston or S. Carolina in Clowney's year, I guarantee he starts on both of those teams from day 1 as well.
Freshman Clowney wasn't starting on this team either as crazy as that sounds. He would've been a 3rd down pass rush specialist in addition to the backup DE plays Gary got, IMO.
Oliver and Gary are basically the exact same player, IMO...Gary just has a couple of inches on him. Both are explosive DT/DE types whereas Clowney was and always will be a pass rush supreme.
|1 day 10 hours ago||Good hire for Houston||
Working under Saban was perfect for Kiffin, I think he'll do well there. Good fit.
Now Cincinnati needs to go ahead and try and get Miles or Fleck and USF needs to Brady Hoke "I would've walked" to get Charlie Strong.
Lastly, Temple needs to go get Greg Schiano!
It's a GREAT year to be an American Conference school, there are some really good coaches out there for that conference.
Kiffin, Fleck/Miles, Strong and Schiano would be AWESOME for that conference.

I've said it before...I'll say it again. It's a borderline bubble team. May as well accept it now.
Not going to change until Beilein gets better talent.
Irvin and Walton are 4th and 5th options. It's just the fact of the matter.
If you want to be elite you need to have a McGary, GRIII and a Stauskas to pair with this team.
Wagner coming off the bench behind McGary would be perfect. DJ Wilson providing energy and toughness when GRIII is playing soft and uninspired - a great fit. Duncan Robinson playing the 3 behind Irvin where he should be now. You'll hit on one of the 2 each game.
MAAR would be 100 times better off the bench. Stauskas is the Alpha this team has lacked since he left. Then you'd also have MAAR coming off the bench behind Walton as well.
...This a a team of role players that's missing it's best 3 players if it wanted to be elite. The players aren't bad, they're just playing in far more important roles than they should be.
Beilein has to recruit better and hit on his recruits. You need lottery talent. Not all 5 starters, but you need 2-3 players who are going to make the guys on this team better. We don't have that and that's why we're a bubble team that will beat 1 team we shouldn't and lose to a team we shouldn't and then do it all over again.

It's like ABC's Blackish...but the Andrew Dakich version.
|2 days 21 hours ago||Throwing hard doesn't make||
Throwing hard doesn't make him an NFL QB. There are plenty of guys who can throw a football 80 yards.
Throwing for 3,000 in college doesn't make him an NFL QB either.
If he was an NFL QB...I'm sorry, Harbaugh would've played him and we wouldn't have been watching John O'Korn throw balls at the feel of Amara Darboh for 3.5 hours.
If he was an NFL QB...he probably would've earned a starting spot over Denard, Devin, Jake OR Wilton. He had chances.
I wish the kid all the best, but if he goes somewhere and become an NFL QB, we should be looking at Harbaugh with some questions. I don't think that's the case. This isn't the RB position...completely different situation.
Michigan in 2015 or 2016 isn't going to just let an NFL QB be the 3rd string guy who only gets in to run a toss sweep and act as a lead blocker.
You have to let the hype go and just wish the kid well, he gave it his all, he was a solid teammate...he did more for Michigan football than 99% of this board. But all of that can be true without him secretly being a pro prospect cause he throws hard/far.
|2 days 21 hours ago||Or it's just he likes the||
Or it's just he likes the weather, the school, can get on the field, and he is comfortable in the system.
Learning a new system isn't for everyone...if you're telling me I can go to San Jose for grad school, play football in a system I already know, pssssh...that may be a no brainer if my other options are MAC schools.
|2 days 21 hours ago||Well those 8 + Morris gives||
Well those 8 + Morris gives you 9...that's right in your window.
I just hope we keep some of the 5th year guys who can provide value and depth even if they're not starters. Obviously they have to want to be here too.
But Isaac, Poggi, Kuglar, Dawson...I see value there. We know their "floor" and they can be plugged right in and contribute even if they're not starters. And you never know...look at Godin, who knew he'd be an All-B1G performer late in his career.
McCray and Clark are givens and I won't comment on Drake Johnson without knowing his health/status. But those first 4...I really do hope they all stay, we need the leadership on a young team. I know Dawson and Hill are close and leaders of the team. Isaac can provide power and be called on if/when needed if he doesn't earn the starting spot. Same with Kugler.
Poggi was a reliable blocker and Hill can't play every down. It would allow us to redshirt Ben Mason if he's going to play FB. A position where a RS year a crucial because no one is leaving early and that 5th year experience, and just being a grown man versus a HS student is HUGE.
|2 days 21 hours ago||We'll be fine in 2-3 years||
We'll be fine in 2-3 years when Drevno has his guys that HE recruited and not the 4*/5* guys that got us all excited, but never really lived up to the hype until this year and that was inconsistent.
I'm not worried about the OL at all. I remember how bad it was, I have perspective.
We're on the right track and I'm seeing freshman contribute on upperclassmen-led teams and play well. Those guys are going to get better and we'll find more of those guys.
Ben Bredeson was better this year than any OL on the team except Cole in his freshman (or sophomore) year.
Onwenu got snaps when he didn't have to.
I look at the 5-6 guys we're about to bring in...they'll be young, but in 2-3 years, I expect us to have a vintage Stanford OL littered with draft picks.
|2 days 21 hours ago||Dangit||
That just reminded me...I have a cool story bro.
So I got to go to the game at S. Carolina and forgot this, because, well obviously (the game sucked).
Anyway, I got to sit with the parents right behind the bench, I mean, I heard every word in every timeout. I don't know if it's public knowledge, Beilein has made Dackich a coach for this redshirt year.
He seriously goes to him for advice DURING the game, he's constantly okay "Okay, I hear you...keep talking to me, keep giving me that stuff." He'll kneel down in front of Andrew and Andrew will point things out the he sees while the ball is in play.
I won't say who, but Dackish even heavily made a sub (I won't say who because it was due to poor play, not him pointing out someone who may be gassed or injured - which is normal).
During the game Dakich will take Beilein's clipboard and draw stuff up and then at some of the media timeouts he'll take the first 10 seconds to explain to Coach what he's seeing. Just those 2 standings off to the side while the managers pull the stools out and everyone gets settled.
Especially during timeouts when we're on defense because Donlon runs all of those, he sits in Beilein's chair and everything. So Dakich will draw something up and explain it really quick, Beilein will listen and learn what he's trying to say, he'll nod, and then will go into the huddle with Donlon and hear the defense.
Just really cool how they keep him involved and use his eye for very specific things. I also found often Dakich is looking off the ball and scouting. He'll call out a missed backcut and coach up a teammate because everyone else is naturally looking at the action in the play.
Sometimes when a big doesn't get the ball and feels he's open, Dakich will explain to him when he comes out why the guard missed the pass. (As a former guard, it's normally always because you don't trust the angle the big gave you). Little things like that.
The kid is smart as hell. I was with 2 other people, neither a Michigan fan - actually one an OSU fan...both were rooting for Michigan and loved Beilein and the team after the game. The way they all communicate with each other is special/unqiue to watch.
The fact that a man who's been to the Final Four, the National Championship game can set his ego aside and allow a walk-on PG share his thoughts, or a 1st year assistant lead a timeout...I just thought that was special. Don't get me wrong, Beilein's always in control, it's his team, but he wants ALL of the information he can possibly get. If you can give him 1% more info now than he had a minute ago - he'll take it.
|2 days 22 hours ago||Awesome interview...||
|2 days 22 hours ago||Never forget.||
|2 days 22 hours ago||The hail mary pass never works in basketball||
The hail mary pass never works in basketball when they're guarding the inbounds pass.
1 second wasn't enough time...but I always believe you want to get the ball in and get something going to the rim. Get the ball up and get a look at the basketball.
Half court and 3/4 court shots are far from impossible. They're not probable. But it's better than trying to complete some lob in a sport where you have to get the ball off before the clock hits 0.00 and the clock starts as soon as someone touches the ball.
You're never going to get a completion and a good look. Either someone tips it or they force you into the most awkward catch that you don't have a good look.
A catch and turnaround from just inside half court is a much tougher shot than a runner facing the rim from beyond half court.

Not sure how many more...but naturally they'll happen. And if the player is making the best decision for him and his family, I'm all for it.
Personally, I wouldn't be surprised at:
1 of 2 other QBs
1 of 2 RBs
1 of 2 WRs
2 of 3 OL
1 of 2 DL
1 of 2 LB
...I can't think of any DBs.
Not saying they'll happen - it just wouldn't shock me. Between 5th years not being offered, transfers and grad transfers. We'll have some new faces for sure.
Interesting was a great way to put it.

That said, there was some noise about him transfering to GVSU over the summer. Also there were a few comments about his relationship with Borges who was/is at SJSU (not sure if he's still on the staff).
Me personally, I'd LOVE to see him playing in some Wednesday night MACtion next year! What do the QB situations look like at EMU, CMU, WMU and Toledo?
|3 days 1 hour ago||No surprise though.||
This one is pretty easy since it was rumor all summer.
I didn't know where he was in school, but I thought all summer that if he would've graduated in August he could pull a Rudock/Vernon Adams and find a team right before fall camp.
Wish him all the best.
Wouldn't be shocked at all if there isn't another QB to go either. Two obvious names out there may certainly be looking around.

|5 days 6 hours ago||For Cincinnati? Heck yes!||
Heck yes...this is a GOLDEN year to get a coach that's probably too good for you.
But if you're a school like Texas A&M, no, that's why they didn't fire Sumlin. No one out there is a better option. Same with Gundy at Okie St (who doesn't get along with their top donor).
Oregon HAD to fire Helfrich. Baylor needs a new HC. But you look around and there aren't a bunch of top names.
I love to Row The Boat, but PJ Fleck doesn't do it for me if I'm Texas, LSU, Oregon, OSU, USC, Michigan, Bama, Florida, etc.
But if I'm Cincinnati?!! Hoooo boy. I just named 4 coaches from my couch that I'd go crazy for. Les Miles? Are you kidding me? PJ Fleck? Charlie Strong...yes, even Greg Schiano?! Sign me up if I'm at UC!!
Hell, like I said, even Brohm, or a Major Applewhite or Sonnie Cumbie or Lincoln Riley wouldn't be a HORRIBLE hire. Those are the names you would've expected in a normal year. But you're telling me I can fire Tommy Tuberville and hire one of those first 4? Bearcats are in a VERY good place.
|5 days 6 hours ago||IMO||
Cincinnati is a better fit for Les Miles than Purdue ever was...we'll see what happens.
I'm sure they'll try and sell PJ Fleck on the Brian Kelly stepping stone route to an elite program as well.
Could also try and lure Charlie Strong with his ties to Louisville.
I don't think the job is THAT good, but Cincinnati actually has more "dream candidates" than most schools right now when you look at the school and the potential hires.
They're in a much better spot than a lot of other big time schools who don't have those big time candidates available (when you compare the coach to the school).
If I was UC, I'd jump at all 3 of those guys knowing you could always settle for the hot assistant coach if they say no.
Greg Schiano is another name that I just thought about.
Schiano, Fleck, Miles, Strong aren't getting a Oregon, LSU, type jobs. That would be a big time settle for those schools (or in Miles' case, LSU is who fired him). But Cincinnati is sort of in a sweet spot that would be a nice landing place if they coughed up the coin.
Far better opportunity than Purdue. In fact, if Brohm would've waited a week, he may have been able to get the Bearcats job. A job where you can win and move on versus a job where you're doomed because even if you go 6-6 for 4 years, people are going to get bored of it and you'll get fired eventually.

You think I wasn't upset either? Of course I was. But I can laugh and shrug while you're all up in your feelings.
Before I was just joking, now THAT'S me being an ass...but you know what, I'm spot on. So if that hurts your feelings this may not be the best place for you.

In my fantasy 8-team playoff...
#1 Alabama vs. Wisconsin/Colorado/SC/Okie St (@Bama) ...not sure who you take 8th
#2 Clemson vs. Oklahoma (@ Clemson)
#3 OSU vs. PSU (@OSU) [interesting how that plays out with basically a conference game at the other team's home]
#4 Washington vs. #5 Michigan (@Wash)
Quarterfinals would be next weekend and then you'd have the bowl selection show (losers would still go to a bowl - winners go to semis and finals just as they do it now at neutral sites).
Oddly enough, those matchups are TERRIBLE. Clemson and Oklahoma played last year, Bama played USC earlier this year or 4 teams from one conference would be kind of stupid - we'd lose our minds if it was the SEC. OSU and PSU is a rematch...with that said, it's not like anyone planned for this and in most years the quarters would provide you with awesome matchups and the home field advantage would be substaintial for the top 4 seeds.
Anyway...back to reality.
|5 days 19 hours ago||Huh?||
I don't buy that at all.
In the very first year it wasn't clear cut and there was huge contoversy taking OSU over Baylor and TCU. It just turns out they won the whole thing and put the noise to bed.
Last year Stanford was like this year's Michigan and it was a top 4 team that didn't get in...just like Michigan won't.
...IMO, this does nothing one way or the other in terms of an 8-team playoff. If you like 4, you have every reason to stand by that this year. If you like 8, this is another year where you feel we should have 8.
Truthfully, there've been 6 team each year that should be in...but you can't make a good 6-team playoff, IMO. So with that said, I just happen to be in the group that would prefer you have 2 team that shouldn't be in and reward the top 2 teams with an easier game...rather than leave 2 teams out who were deserving (TCU/Baylor, Iowa/Stanford, PSU/Michigan).

When most people complain about "anti-(their school)" bias...it usually drives me crazy because 9 times out of 10, they just don't want to hear the truth. The 1 out of 10 is a troll like Skip Bayless that they take seriously.
That said, she is truly the exception. She HAAAATES Michigan for some reason, I don't even know the background, but she's like Drew Sharp without trying to be funny. She was forever bashing Michigan's schedule even late in the year when we'd beat 3 top 10 teams in Colorado, PSU and Wisconsin. Then she'd prop someone else up with those same teams.
Part of the problem is just that she's a fucking idiot...I'm not even joking, she's a joke when it comes to actual expertise. At least people like Bayless and Fienbaum are good at being trolls. She's horrible at her job and her role.
She's the one person I have no issue saying, she hates Michigan. Not Herbie, not Fowler, not even Fienbaum (although he DOES hate Harbaugh because he steals attention from him and Saban)...Dinich.

Why would Washington jump Clemson? That doesn't make sense.
...now do I think Clemson is that good? No. But I didn't think FSU was that good when they were a #3 and got destroyed by Oregon, but I understood why they were #3.
They're not going to drop Clemson after winning. If they move at all, it'll be to #2 over OSU, which is even more of a joke, but they're definitely going to be #2 or #3. Likely the same for OSU and Washington plays Bama in Atlanta. Good luck.

(This has nothing to do with that targeting play...I'm just sayin')
I don't know what else you're supposed to do as a defense, slow down and wait and give the offensive player time to gather himself and try to break your now stationary tackle?

Most certainly will...and S. Carolina is looking good, but they're in the SEC. Those would've been huge wins for a bubble team.
|6 days 7 hours ago||EXACTLY.||
Jumping #7 to #4 would be if everyone won or was off.
You don't jump someone ahead of you when they lose...they fall below you.
Clemson and Wisconsin will fall below Michigan and PSU.
...so it's just a matter of PSU jumping Michigan, who doesn't play today. That would be #5 virtually jumping/swapping with #4 Michigan.
That's completely different than what OSU did in 2014. They JUMPED Baylor and TCU because neither team played the extra game, both won their final game. OSU leapfrogged them.
If PSU wasn't playing and Wisconsin lost, PSU would still move up. Same logic, that's not jumping them.

Or Wisconsin needs to jump Washington, correct?

It can be done but that is stupid thinking. It's 2 years from now the team will be completely different.

I don't get your logic. It would only make sense if you're taking the same team and playing the exact same team.
|6 days 10 hours ago||I'm sure it's been discussed||
But is it Orange Bowl for sure if Michigan isn't in the Playoff or can they get into the Rose Bowl?
|6 days 10 hours ago||This is true...I will say||
This is true...I will say though that I we lost on the road and everyone seems to be giving OSU a win, but doesn't count it as a loss for Michigan if that makes sense.
PSU beat OSU at home in a night game. We didn't get those circumstances or we probably win too.
I just don't get what Gucci is talking about when he says "out of touch" or whatever he said.
That's bullshit. That extra, in this case 11th win has PROVEN to be huge in the eyes of the committee and the championship has PROVEN to be a tiebreaker.
Again, ask the Big XII.
2014. OSU jumps Baylor and TCU because they're conference champs and they got a 12th win...Baylor and TCU were stuck with 11 because they didn't get the extra game.
2015 work itself out because MSU and Iowa was a playoff game and the committee only had 4 teams to choose from.
The committee showed in 2014 what the priorities are...it's the SAME REASON the Big XII is now going to a championship game next year. So they have that extra game. So don't tell me I'm out of touch when I have fact behind my opinion is my point.
|6 days 10 hours ago||...you forgot to put "in my||
...you forgot to put "in my opinion."
Because, no, it would not take a 20+ point win for every person on the committee to consider it.
|6 days 10 hours ago||This makes no sense||
This makes no sense Gucci.
The Playoff Committee has SAID and SHOWN that they value conference championships.
The B1G Champion, no matter who it is, will be a conference champion AND they'll have an extra win that we don't have.
This is exactly how the Big XII keeps getting left out. They don't have the opporunity for that extra win.
If PSU had 3 losses and was going for win #10...I'd be with you 100%. But the fact of the matter is they would be champs, they'd have an 11th win, AND they would've just beaten the #6 team in the country.
That counts for something. And the committee has said that.
...it's okay to be hopeful, but to act like someone is out of touch with the committee by listening to what the committee has SAID and going off what the committee has DONE is ignorant on your end.
...with all due respect. (that's intentional for the poster who doesn't get the with all due respect, joke).
And if Clemson wins and the CFB Committee puts us #6, please don't be that guy who says they did it to save face and had Clemson lost we would've been over the B1G Champ.

Western is a much better program right now. There is no reason to leave a Top 25 team to go to Purdue.
He's better off trying to make Western his Boise St. and going to his Washington or making it his Houston and going to his Texas than going to Purdue.
Western is a MUCH better job. That's what people don't get. If he can go undefeated at WMU this year. And even if there's nothing out there he likes and he goes 1-2 more season at WMU with no more than 1-2 losses. He'll be able to get a big time job, he'll be the new Tom Herman minus as many big P5 wins.
That's still good enough to land a mid-level P5 job in his sleep.
|1 week 22 hours ago||So? Les Miles is a||
So? Les Miles is a name...Purdue doesn't need a name, or a ring, it's still Purdue at the end of the day.
As I said above, the only way they turn that thing around is to find someone who changes the culture, brings some type of niche offense, and does things a little differently.
If you want to be a 5-7 team with a few draft picks...Les Miles is the way. He'll steal a kid or 3, no question, but is that going to change that program?
Put Grant Perry, Nolan Ulizio, Noah Furbush and say...Keith Washington on Purdue. Are you REALLY changing that team that much? Shit. Give them De'Veon too, he's a relatively local kid, and I'll toss in Alex Malzone since he's a QB.
Put those 6 guys on Purdue right now. Which is likely the kind of talent a Les Miles steals away every now and again.
So you got some kids that can play, but they have nothing around them...you have draft picks, but no support. They're basically what Illinois was when they'd always have some 1st or 2nd round DL or LB, or WR or RB - but they'd barely be bowl eligible.
So I give you those guys and congrats, you take a 3-9 team and now you've won 2-3 more games. If that's the goal...Les Miles is your answer. And you'll be a lot poorer from it as well. You'll get tired of being 5-7, 6-6, with one bright 7-5 year and you'll fire him 5-6 years from now...because you went for the name.
|1 week 22 hours ago||That's a silly idea||
Purdue's only hope is to find some young niche coach who can actually coach football, have a few good years and then leave for a better job.
That's the ONLY way.
Hiring a big name does nothing for Purdue.
So you go Les Miles, now what? You really think that's the answer?
You think kids are going to line up to play football for Les Miles at Purdue? Sure, you've got a couple of 3* kids who can play and you got a 4* that you hail as the "next"...and now you're a 5-7 team with a few draft picks.
No, you need someone to build a culture. Then that guy will leave and you pay his top assistant and pray you can keep it going.
Opening up the checkbook is not the route for Purdue...it's the route for a MSU or PSU type.

No need to bring politics into it. Settling for the fact that you have incompentent part-time officials, some with agenda and afflliations, all with egos and emotions is enough. Toss in the fact that they're sheltered from all criticism as the article says...you're fostering what happened on Saturday.
Again, this is a culture in most sports. In baseball you can get toss from a game for looking at the umpire the wrong way. Do you know how INSANE that is? You are so soft, big-headed, and weak-minded that someone stares at you and you get offended and remove them from the game?!
With all of the money that has poured into sports at the college and pro level, there is no reason for officiating to be as bad as it is. And for all of the money those guys make...and even if they don't make money. There's no reason they should be exempt from being critiqued.
Like I said...I can watch John O'Korn get his play ran through the MUD by fans, coaches, and media. I can watch Charlie Strong get DESTROYED following losses to Kansas and TCU by fans, coaches, and media. No penalty. No fine. It's part of being a QB or head coach. Right? Don't like it...don't sign up.
But referees, officials, and umpires can't take it? It's a dangerous situation from a strictly sports only point of view. The people who enforce rules and policy cannot be told their wrong. There's no judge, jury, or court system for them. No appeals. And even if you look their way or throw your playsheet in the air...you're in the wrong, not them.
Not great, Bob.
|1 week 3 days ago||Agree 100% w/ Sam||
I do hope Harbaugh brings this article...and the many others than have been written (including Brian's) and continues to point out these facts.
Not because it'll change anything, but because I agree with Sam's entire first paragraph. Harbaugh should be a voice and agent of change.
It's a culture that we must get away from. We can bash an 18 year old, we can destroy a coach for losing to Kansas, but we can't say a damn thing about officiating in sports (not just football).
How is the “integrity of competition” compromised by discussing the performance of those that officiate it? Why is it disrespectful to call out their mistakes? And why do fans and some in media accept that narrative? Coaches, players, and officials all impact the outcome of games, but to many only two components of that dynamic are considered fair game to critique. Officials are the protected class. Discuss their impact on the game and risk being labeled an “excuse maker” or “a whiner” and being admonished for “bush league” criticism. The question again is why? Why do they deserve such deference? Because their jobs are hard? At last check coaching and playing aren’t exactly easy. Maybe they get the benefit of the doubt because of the “human error” quotient? Well I’m pretty sure officials aren’t out there refereeing games played and coached by automatons. The guys in stripes don’t have a monopoly on human imperfection. Lastly, and maybe most importantly, officials aren’t unpaid volunteers.

I agree. I can't see it now because of Saturday...but a solid year. Remember how it started on January 1 as well. Plus Rashan Gary. Plus finding a QB for most of the year and the future.
I wasn't able to even really post until today. I avoided the site altogether.
I'll never be over it. It'll be right there with Kordell and last year's MSU game. As I explained today, I hate all losses, they make me sick to my stomach - I can't watch football for awhile...they stay with me. However, the losses that should be wins. Or the ones where it's fluke plays or I feel cheated out of, I'll never lose my anger for those.
I was at the Michigan/OSU game where DG missed the 2-point play, it hurt like hell and I was sick all weekend...but you know what, in my heart I knew we played our asses off and for the most part, it just is what it is. We snuck out a game in UTL I that had to be a heartbreaker, last year we had that stretch of wins where every game was a heart attack.
However, those were legitimate - even the losses.
That fucking MSU play was beyond a fluke wrapped in a missed false start call. We all know what happened Saturday. I can't accept those. I'll never accept those. They were both bullshit and not just because of how they ended, the whole game. Intent to deceive, kicking Bolden out of the game on some bullshit, the personal foul on Harbaugh, missed call after call on Saturday. Awful, the entire game we played our asses off and it was just awful.
Those are my snowflakes that have nothing to do with anything...glad I got it out though. Now I can go to bed and try to sleep for really the first time since Thursday night.

OL has a solid starting 5...but we're in on 3-4 ELITE level prospects. I don't know if any will start, but 1-2 will get reps and provide quality depth.
Add Soloman or Jay Tufele at NG. Singleton at LB.
A big reason everything looks so thin is because it is...you're flat out missing bodies. Which is why this is OT, IMO. It's not even close to what it will be - there's no way it can be.
|1 week 3 days ago||Nice catch.||
I have him as a slash.
I don't think he starts over Clark who started over him this year or Hill who's the next great one, IMO.
I think he'll have the same role as a nickel or dime back.
He was #3 because when I first did this earlier in the year he hadn't played over Long or Lavert Hill.
|1 week 3 days ago||No sir, he was #4 and was||
No sir, he was #4 and was just out of the top 100 in overall players.
And there was nothing stopping him from playing this year if he was good enough. Well, after he got his classes in order 3-4 games into the year.
|1 week 3 days ago||Come on.||
He played one game. A terrible one. But one game in shit weather.
There's a reason it was a QB battle and Speight wasn't named over the summer.
I'm not saying he's a world beater, but Malzone could've beaten him out THIS year and didn't. Everyone is so down on him because of one game.
I think it's about time we trust Harbaugh in that if he was good enough to barely get beat out in camp and be the #2 all year, he's not as bad as he played vs. IU.
|1 week 3 days ago||And CB... Clark can make up||
Clark can make up for Strib, but Jourdan Lewis will be sorely missed. We have talent coming down the pipeline, but Lewis is probably one of the best 3 CBs to ever wear a winged helmet.
|1 week 3 days ago||Nice catch, I don't like||
Nice catch, I usually don't like removing players before they're gone...that's just a blatant miss.
|1 week 3 days ago||Fuck 2016||
Won't embed this due to some of the "politics" ...but John Oliver's FUCK 2016 is a wonderful summary if you watch it all the way through.
Note: Most of the politics goes away after the first 30 seconds. The rest is just people in NYC.
|1 week 3 days ago||Toss in the remaining commits||
And this team will be a contender again.
Rivals at home, QB in his 2nd year, elite WR prospects, depth on the OL (albeit young depth), another NG who should be an elite prospect, and the secondary is a lot better with Clark coming back.
I realize Peppers is the longest of long shots and we REALLY need Hurst as well...but they stay unless they leave.
I do worry about the scheme on defense with this group a little bit. IMO, Lewis' ability changes the complexion of this entire defense because he simply shuts his man down. Lavert is going to be awesome, but we can't ask him to be JD in his true sophomore year.
