|1 year 16 weeks ago||Am I the only one worried||
Am I the only one worried that our spartan and buckeye "friends" will try to paint Bo? If I had to see that, I think I would be sick.
|1 year 28 weeks ago||If he does well enough, they||
If he does well enough, they might try to convince him to be a head coach in waiting. Not that it worked well for Texas when they tried it, but it worked out ok for FSU. Brady is 55, so he might not want to coach forever. Although I am sure he would want to stay around the program like Bo and Lloyd.

I hate both Clmeson and OSU. Therefore, I will be rooting for a meteor to hit the stadium.

While we are at it, take Funk too. Our o-line could use someone new...
|1 year 42 weeks ago||I have a feeeling they may||
I have a feeeling they may try to get Malzone as a preferred walk on candidate. Rivals has his only offers as Bowling Green, Toledo, Western Michigan, and Old Dominion. It sort of fits with what they did with Brian Cleary from U of D last year.
|1 year 42 weeks ago||I believe he attended||
I believe he attended Alabama's camp. As best as I can find, he did not get an offer (doesn't mean one isn't on its way I suppose).
|1 year 46 weeks ago||Cosigned!||
As you said, the D only let up 23 points. Not to mention that one of those touchdowns they let up was a super lucky bounce off the RB's hands 5 yards directly into a receiver's hands behind him.
Did ND have some drives? sure, but all teams will have some drives. However, they put us in a position to win, and that is all that matters. A far cry from the GRob era thankfully.
|1 year 46 weeks ago||Picture proof can be found||
Picture proof can be found here that Hand was there and appears happy.
|2 years 1 week ago||Honestly, i'm surprised it||
Honestly, i'm surprised it isn't a bit higher.
I'm not saying he should have gotten the same money as Izzo, Crean, or Matta, but with the amazing job he has done with our program, i figured at least in the 3 mil range. Still, heck of a job Beiliein. I will echo that he is worth every penny!
|2 years 3 weeks ago||Didn't our longtime track||
Didn't our longtime track coach just retire? Are our track facilities really that far behind those southern schools? If yes, any chance we upgrade our track program soon?
With Brandon's recent talks about "unlimited" budgets for achieving championships, I'm guessing/hoping he wants to win championships in every sport.
|2 years 6 weeks ago||Ugh, just looked to buy||
Ugh, just looked to buy tickets and they are sold out. Would have really liked to have gone to Friday's game.
|2 years 8 weeks ago||Would Green and Fournette be||
Would Green and Fournette be complimentary backs?
Oh and Borges does have expereince running an offense with two star running backs (as he had Cadilac Williams and Ronnie Brown back in the Auburn days).
|2 years 8 weeks ago||Lets not discount Peppers||
Lets not discount Peppers recruiting ability just yet (although we could say the jury is out on it), as he said he is going after Malik McDowell and Da'Shawn Hand for us. Plus, who knows who else he might put in a call to.
|2 years 9 weeks ago||Any chance we offer Campbell||
Any chance we offer Campbell at a different position? Or is he a QB only sort of prospect?
|2 years 20 weeks ago||I haven't bought one in||
I haven't bought one in awhile, but I will be buying this one as soon as it hits the shelves!
|2 years 20 weeks ago||This is why we can't have||
This is why we can't have nice things
|2 years 20 weeks ago||I think you have to establish||
I think you have to establish a culture where kids know even if they are not "the guy," they will still get playing time through being rotated in. I would guess Hoke is going to attempt to do what he did with the dline and have guys rotate in and out on the oline. Therefore keeping people fresh. We really couldn't afford to do that much last year thanks to depth issues, but in the future, I could see that happen.
|2 years 26 weeks ago||Reclassified???||
Kids can reclassify? Any reason why this guy did that? I vaguely recall some kids intentionally get held back so they will be the biggest ones on the teams etc..., but why would a kid rush ahead?
|2 years 27 weeks ago||Excellent news! We could use||
Excellent news! We could use a big time playmaker at WR
|2 years 28 weeks ago||Don't get me wrong, I wasn't||
Don't get me wrong, I wasn't attempting to imply they were slam dunks, just possibilities. A lot of people seem to take x recruit committing elsewhere as a sky is falling scenario, when really, there are plenty of recruits out there, some who are even more skilled. For all the negative news, I like to focus on positives.
|2 years 28 weeks ago||Cosigned!We are in on some||
We are in on some pretty big names including guys like Da'Shawn Hand and Jabrill Peppers. Not to mention Malik McDowell. While losing guys like Webb and Harris is not exactly fun, the coaching staff seems to be doing an excellent job of getting in on some very talented big name targets.
|2 years 28 weeks ago||Ugh||
Someone keep Meyer out of our State
|2 years 28 weeks ago||Interesting note: scout lists||
Interesting note: scout lists appears to like him as a punting prospect as well
He appears to have his own youtube channel
|2 years 28 weeks ago||Don't worry guys, he grew out||
Don't worry guys, he grew out the first one fairly quick. I am sure he can have another one ready come football season in the fall
|3 years 5 days ago||I would guess they might ask||
I would guess they might ask someone to greyshirt, or they are expecting greater attrition
|3 years 7 weeks ago||I think it may have been||
I think it may have been pre-rankings, but our 1998 class has to be up there (saying they would have all stayed)
We had Henson, Fargas, Terrell, Walker, Foote, Hobson, Joppru, June, Howard, and Epstein all in one class.
|3 years 18 weeks ago||Oddly enough, the Michigan||
Oddly enough, the Michigan commits that they rank as four star players are the ones that have video links next to them. To me it sounds reasonable that once they have video on our three star guys, they might see a bump in rankings.
|3 years 19 weeks ago||I have a feeling that a lot||
I have a feeling that a lot of people's thoughts on the video will strongly correlate with if they went to CC or not.
|3 years 20 weeks ago||Does it matter who initiated||
Does it matter who initiated the contact and if they had a prior relationship? I mean Roundtree and McCray both went to the same school, so it is at least possible they knew each other.
|3 years 20 weeks ago||Two can play this game my||
Two can play this game my friend.
OSU should be worried about McCray getting in Cam's ear. The allure of potential early playing time, playing with his friend, and Hoke, Mattison, and McCray all being in his ear may be too much.
Realistic? Probably not, but the coin certainly has two sides.
