He didn't say celebrities, but he did say stars, which is the same thing.

It was the smoothest stream I've watched in a while. I almost always have issues with streams dropping but this one was great.

I agree with a lot of your rankings, but the guy your replying to is correct if your trying to replicate how EA would rate the players if a game were coming out. Your ratings are closer to a madden style rating (or between madden style and ncaa style). EA tended to be very aggresive with their NCAA ratings. Guys like Darboh, Chesson, Butt, Peppers, etc would be bumped up more than you have them. That isn't to say I like how NCAA rated their players, because I would prefer a more conservative rating system.

I'll break it down into offense and defense:
Offense: Ahmir Mitchell- I love having tall and strong receivers.
Defense: David Long/Levert Hill- This one was tough for me. They both look to be great and I can't wait to see them both out there in a few years. WIth that said, if I had to pick one I would have to go with David long.
I also think Eubanks will be the best TE out of this group when it is all said and done. I think that he is going to be a beast.

So what is going to happen at the signing of the stars? I truly have no idea what it is other than it is on NSD and a lot of big name people will be there.

Not a 2*, that is an exaggeration. He looks like a generic 3* OT, definitely not 4 star though.

Damn, he is extremely quick.

The next Graham Glasgow? Yes please.

People are assuming way too much. Many times when things like this happen the coach will still accept the scholarship, but will tell the recruit he just doesn't seem the recruit playing in the future. So the recruit then wants to look around again. It isn't pulling their scholarship, but is instead sort of telling them it would probably be in their best interest if they don't come because they probably won't play. This also typically is an ongoing discussion and if that is the case here I'm sure he has known about it for a while and the media just now learned of it. We don't really know the full specifics so speculating is pointless.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||The duke win was bigger in||
The duke win was bigger in 08/09 because of the talent and expectation differences at that point in time compared to now. While this win was awesome, I have come to expect at least a fight against a team like this, and a fight can turn into a win. Back in 08/09 I never really expected a fight against a very good team. I definitely always hoped for a win, but a win at that point in time was much more surprising to me. While the team this year has 3 losses they have grown in ways that I really wasn't sure possible, especially without Lavert.

None of them are truly worth it. The information gets out a few hours after they say it anyway so unless you want the information immediately it isn't needed. With that said, I would recommend scout or 247. Scout has Sam Webb who is good, but can tend to fish for some views. 247 is probably the best all around service( especially site design and the composite rankings, but those are free) but since you already had that subscription you know what it is all about.

The over under realistically should have been set at 8. Before the season I said over with 9 wins. We exceeded that even so I'm quite happy. I did say we would go 1-1 against MSU and OSU though, and we really should have.

I can't believe I'm saying this, but please bench Walton and put in dakich.

Just about everyone under the age of 40 has an iTunes account(and at this point even over) and yes that includes needy kids.

I'm excited to see him on offense.

We can only have 8 because of the rules? Or you think we will have 8?
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Then why wouldn't we have||
Then why wouldn't we have allowed David Reese to be an early enrollee assuming we still wanted him?
|6 weeks 4 days ago||How many early enrollees can||
How many early enrollees can we take?
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Would he have still come if||
Would he have still come if we just offered him a preferred walk on spot? I know it says he was looking to play, but being a preferred walk on doesn't necessarily mean he wouldn't play.

Dakich is awesome.

I wonder if he ever regrets leaving. He left for an auburn team that a lot of people thought had CFP potential and ended up being pretty bad, compared to the team that he left which was thought to be a pretty middling team who is now pretty good and is going to a good bowl.
|9 weeks 21 hours ago||That isn't what he is saying||
That isn't what he is saying even in the slightest. He's saying if we were to be in a position to go to the rose bowl would durkin stay like smart is staying. The answer to that I would guess is no. I bet durkin not staying has more to do with Harbaugh not letting him than the other way around.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||I feel bad for Durkin because||
I feel bad for Durkin because I really like him, but I also think he made a bad decision from his perspective. He is in the B10 east which is loaded. I think he's a great coach, but I'm worried that this job is going to kill some of the momentum he had building. He should have waited another year or two for a job that has more upward mobilitiy. I just don't see him doing all that well at Maryland.

And he can do that in 3 years pretty easily with the summer classes that they take.

PSU may go up tempo here and there but since they don't do it often it wouldn't be nearly as effective. I don't see them doing it all that much. OSU on the other hand may, which sort of worries me.

That is why your not a football coach. What you said may work one time, but then would never again due to being scouted.

He won't be projected this year to go middle or early 1st purely due to size. Late 1st or later will be where he is at this year.

Any punters instinct is to try to kick the ball away. Even American punters would have tried to punt that ball away.
