|10/28/2017 - 1:24pm||Wow||
BP looks like a step up already. JOK was struggling.
Much better touch on the football.
|10/23/2017 - 1:24am||Receivers||
Honestly - there were times that O'Korn had time, but didn't have any receivers who got any separation. So, while the OL has been suspect, the receivers and tight ends, in my opinion, are a more glaring problem than the OL.
Given that its a young group of receivers without any seniors to rescue this young offense, it just adds to our offensive woes. Our WR corp has never been this suspect. Even in the dark ages of Rich Rod and Hoke we have always had a stellar corp of recievers who would rescue the QB in dire situations. This year it seems different.
|02/06/2017 - 11:40pm||Ohio State||
This year's OSU class was ridiculous - small but the quality. I'm sure we can pull talent at the same level.
|02/06/2017 - 12:15am||Thats since Texas started laying an egg||
I remember in the Mack Brown era, Texas used to lock up all talent in Texas before Senior year even started.
|02/05/2017 - 11:25pm||IMG is a football factory||
Its crazy how they do it
|02/05/2017 - 11:17pm||What happens in Vegas||
Stays in Vegas!
|02/05/2017 - 11:14pm||Didn't notice as much||
But yes, seems like they have been a consistently top school.
Attack them with enthusiasm unknown to mankind.
|01/06/2017 - 4:32am||Stop with the Najee threads already||
we haven't seen a recruit get this much attention since Dee Hart
|01/02/2017 - 10:46pm||Good luck to him||
Would have liked to see him in the class.
|01/02/2017 - 6:30pm||This is really scary||
The talent coming in this year at OSU is crazy.
|01/02/2017 - 6:22pm||Even before he has suited up||
that's a lot of confidence.
Unless you are speaking from pure rankings perspective.
|01/02/2017 - 12:07am||Competition||
when you have that much competition at a school. It's easy to get guys to compete and eliminate mistakes. You are playing against elite atheltes day in and day out.
It is a virtuous cycle.
|01/01/2017 - 11:39pm||Since the dream is to contend for NC's and beat OSU||
I think we have to pick those two teams.
Sure we can have other teams in the mix. But the point of the exercise was to address the whole 'National contender' and 'Beat OSU'
|01/01/2017 - 11:20pm||Eh||
You can argue the methodology
But the general guideline I went by was
- 98 = 5 star
- 95 = high 4 star
- 90 = low 4 star
Now you could have a 3 star (Khaled Hill) be a star and a 5 star (Derrick Green) flame out. But I'm guessing it evens out across all teams.
|01/01/2017 - 11:15pm||Yes we did||
But we didn't have an elite QB or RB. We had an average O-LINE
Some matchups will be hard.
Also remember, we lost those three games by a combined 5 points. It's not like we got blown out. And anybody will tell you that a few calls here and there and the result moves in our favor.
|01/01/2017 - 11:11pm||Slightly higher||
Not absurdly higher than Michigan though
- Michigan: 5 over 98 since 2013; Clemson 8
- Michigan: 21 over 95; Clemson 19
They have higher ceiling players. but should be about even. But the rest of the ACC is meh.
|08/23/2016 - 9:29am||I'm surprised nobody is talking about this||
But that class is one of the best in decades (if it stays).
|02/09/2016 - 1:16pm||Whats interesting is||
Ohio State didn't have a down year even with the coaching change.
We also have good recruiting classes after a coaching change and then peter out towards the end of a coach's tenure. Don't know if that is a trend or was it just Hoke.
|02/06/2016 - 12:04pm||Maybe a space issue||
Most of the population in NYC is in the five boroughs which are tight and cramped with little infrastructure for football.
Not saying this is a reason but may be a factor over the years.
|02/04/2016 - 1:55pm||Deep OT class?||
Looks like 2017 is a deep OT class. Wilson is ranked 16th nationally and 5th in the position - that's a scary lineup of OL
|01/27/2016 - 8:11pm||Might end up working in a pin ball machine||
|01/27/2016 - 8:05pm||His middle name 'Decommit'?||
Good luck Jordan!
|01/27/2016 - 11:15am||Impressive offer list||
His offer list is filled with top programs - McLovin' it!
|01/25/2016 - 4:17pm||This||
I have always struggled with this where I flip between if average matters more than total score or vice versa.
|01/25/2016 - 2:10pm||Hasn't NJ always been a good state to recruit from?||
Last year we had Peppers
This year we have Gary
Before that I remember Devin Fuller
While obviously not in the league of FL/ TX - it certainly is not to be underestimated.
|01/25/2016 - 1:16pm||Not sure if Rutgers would be as effective||
Michigan is awesome in all respect with the NJ connection
- Trusted local advisor (Partridge)
- Top headcoach in college football (Harbaugh)
- Great legacy and tradition in school
- Top academic and atheletic facilities
It is tough to ignore all of that.
|01/25/2016 - 1:13pm||I'm thinking WRs and DBs are somewhat interchangeable||
So I'm not THAT concerned with WR abundance.
|01/25/2016 - 1:08pm||All your recruits are belong to us||
Seriously - its raining NJ recruits
|01/25/2016 - 1:06pm||NJ2AA||
NJ is a nice pipeline to have - many good schools and top talent come through from there.
|01/24/2016 - 11:49am||Wait .. Kemp?||
|01/09/2016 - 10:13am||What time is the game?||
Any live streams?
|01/06/2016 - 2:13pm||In-state kids - definitely take him||
Don't want to upset schools and coaches in state
|01/06/2016 - 2:05pm||Would love to see him in the Maize and Blue||
Would love to see him in the maize and blue. But good luck to the kid wherever he ends up.
|01/06/2016 - 2:02pm||Clint Brewster also||
Clint Brewster also CB'ed Long to Michigan!
Sounds like he's one of the silents from the Army game Webb was talking about.
|11/18/2015 - 11:40pm||27-21 UM||
|10/18/2015 - 11:18pm||Honestly we have improved every week||
and we'll learn from this and move on.
I think we end top 10 and take The Game this year to end on a high. I also think we will be the only team to beat Ohio State in regular season this year.
|10/18/2015 - 12:25pm||The refereeing was atrocious||
Is there like a forum to remove referees.
Also, did it seem that MSU players were too aggressive on the field after plays. I saw at least five instances of unsportsmanlike conduct that may have been called in other games.
|10/17/2015 - 7:13pm||OMG why does this happen in crunch games||
They were so bad bad bad today
|10/14/2015 - 1:56pm||28-10||
To the maize and blue
|10/11/2015 - 10:30am||Definitely improvement||
But I'd also attibute a lot of it to the good work by the line.
He's a bulldozer though.
Also shoutout to Sione Houma. He brings a smile everytime he touches the ball
|09/02/2015 - 8:00am||28-17 to the good guys||
28 - 17
|06/10/2015 - 11:58am||Sweet Southern Tears||
I need MOAR
|05/12/2015 - 12:22pm||I'd take Coach B anyday||
over a coach who brings in 5* talent but fails to develop and harness them.
|05/12/2015 - 12:20pm||I like the modern Block M||
The split M was nice ... for the 90's. Now its stale and needed a revamp - the block M addresses that.
|05/12/2015 - 12:17pm||Oreo||
reminds me of childhood and growing up.
Hydrox reminds me of filthy money guzzling, no good imitators.
|05/07/2015 - 12:35am||I liked the Denard brand of QB||
even though he made two mind-numbing throws every game, he more than made up for it.
If NFL means the game is evolving into more Denard'esque - sign me up! That said maybe Denard's QB skills don't necessarily translate well in the top echelons of football.
|04/27/2015 - 10:58am||Jaedong||
I'd pick Jaedong over MC anyday
|02/04/2015 - 4:43pm||Aww - sucketh||
but good luck to him.
|02/04/2015 - 4:41pm||How many schollies do we have for 2016?||
I'm assuming it will be a 25+ class with normal attrition. Under or over?
|02/01/2015 - 11:40pm||Lovin It||
Great performance. Go Blue!
Now to produce the next great Superbowl MVPs for the next decade!
