  1. I'm not that well versed in these matters. Does this have a negative trickle down effect on graduating high school seniors? Will scholarshipped players staying for an extra season reduce opportunities for the next class of potential recruits? Does this waiver include any changes to the scholarship number limits?
  2. I"m confused...are these the odd of the game actually happening?
  3. I'm lazy and didn't read all six pages. Is there any concern or comment regarding the OL players that get no recognition (so no $$$) yet are the ones that allow the 'stars' to be famous and recognizable?
  4. I'm pretty simple. The last few years I've seen teams like LSU, Clemson, Alabama and tOSU put players on the field that look like grown men. We've put guys on the field that look like big kids in pretty decent shape. Just looking at pictures and videos, it looks like we've got a few more of the 'grown men' players showing up on the team. Hope that means something.
  5. I want 17 wins. Instead of a week of practice, we show up unexpectedly at lower end FCS schools and force them into an unplanned game and clean up on them.
  6. I expect for 2020 I'll have to abandon LSU as one of my favorite Non-Husker teams now that demonically possessed spitting mad Bo is there.
  7. I've been a life long Laker's hater, but I've always kind of had a respect for them as well. This is just a kick in the gut. So sad, and so real. Life goes on, till it doesn't.
  8. Sadly, when I first glimpsed this thread title, I thought it said "Returning Talent Big Ten Worst". I assumed it meant us, and I wasn't the least surprised. Really sad.
  9. When I went to my son's graduation from Air Force basic training, we had an 'intro' meeting with a couple of officers, basically telling us the expectations they had for our kids. "You got concerned when you gave them the keys to the family car. We are going to put them in charge of multimillion dollar aircraft and systems. We don't worry about them, we don't have time. So we train them and teach them how to live with expectations." I was Army way back in the day, and we were as rowdy as any 18, 19 year olds. But when on duty and it 'mattered', we were absolutely professional, dependable and motivated.
  10. Hmmmm. Imagine that. If only it had happened Yesterday.
  11. Seems like not to long ago we were hearing about how this coach or that coach made assistant changes last year and how it lead to much better seasons this year. So I'm excitedly optimistic!
  12. I like to speculate as to whether or not the mods will merge this thread at some point!
  13. I think it would have been nice to get Burreauxs out of high school. He'd have still had less than top grade players around him for the nost part, so hard to tell what success he might have brought. As far as getting him after he transferred out of tOSU, after some thought, I'm glad he didn't end up here. He seems to be an upgrade from our current QBs, but next fall, we'd be back at square zero. At least now we have three guys who seem serviceable and should know the system, as well as a top QB recruit coming in. It just feels that having Burrows here would have been another delay toward true program development, Final comment...it was truly a fun thing to watch him play this year. That kid is great, and has a great team around him.
