should stick to the college students like old bud
recent title. Bud's out in 4-5 most likely, schools came sniffing around Scott during offseason, he's also longtime friend of Fuente so title came to keep him here until Bud retired.
big meh on that front, though. obvious why he sucked at recruiting, too.
Maybe because when he stepped on the field he was nowhere near as productive as he was hyped to be. He had a good year, but he was nowhere near what people expected him to be. He went in the right spot imo.
The Miami hate of Derwin is really odd.
it was a weird rationality by sterling tbqh, and cf made a perfectly good point
he fell 12 spots in a year, err maa guurd
Mock drafts don’t mean shit. Fucking Mel kiper threatened to take Jamies Winston off his board because of his behavior. That should tell you all you need to know.
Its more than just that post though. There were a bunch of posts by them in the draft thread yesterday hating on him.
I dont really care where he went but its a little dumb to see people say he was all hype and no production for someone who just went top 20.
Its widely accepted that the Chargers got the biggest steal of the first round. Just about everyone had Derwin going top 10. He absolutely should have gone higher.
was more about slamming mock drafts and NFL more than derwin. Could of said the same thing about Rosen last year
oh shit wolfpack we poached your commit and there's nothing you can do about it probably
UNC Cookout: 1
NCSU Normal Food: negative one hundred thousand trillion
oh he's a long snapper
point stands regardless
Slightly misleading. It's clemson, fsu, and Miami as the only teams with deep nfl talent.
Louisville had a draft with like 11 players selected in 2008 or so. They've had like 5 in the time since.
Why would 2008 matter when it's only the last 5 drafts
Looks like Louisville's had 21 in the last 5 years actually
Sorry - I meant '15.
Yea. Larry posted that they had a drastically lower number than what I see on their website.
man NC State's always trying to copy us
what's all this now?
Nevermind. He corrected his article on rivals since the time I first read it.
imo the better barometer is how many of those players are 1) still in the NFL, 2) playing a valuable role in the NFL, and 3) how many impact players.
Bunch of teams wasting talent it appears.
Why's that matter?
because why should sheer numbers be a good barometer? Shouldn't the ability for the players these schools put out to actually contribute in the NFL be the barometer we measure schools by?
No. The nfl is a different game in some aspects. Lamar Jackson will likely not have the same success he had in college, but does that mean he wasn't truly an elite college player? Nope. Not at alll.
disagree, this is at the time they are drafted. Why should schools be credited for how NFL coaches teach and develop them after they are long gone from the school (whether positively or negatively coached)
should high schools get credit for how a Miami or FSU or Clemson or Georgia Tech develop them after they leave high school?
I mean schools (both High School and College) have reputations for sending busts to the next level for a reason. I mean what would you consider more impressive. School A has 30 players drafted over 5 years but 15 of them are out of the league before their rookie contract is up or School B that has 20 players drafted and 5 of them are out of the league before their rookie contract is up.
all that talent and it's still only bama winning anything in the SEC
true, there are reputations galore around football and we all know most of them pretty well. USC QB's might not all bust in the NFL but they certainly don't live up to there draft hype year in and year out (Leinart, Barkley, etc...) but they are still being drafted in the first round and this year Top 5 overall. So those reputations dont seem to matter too much. All players and situations are different. And a lot of players who go to the same school were coached by different coaches at that school.
I mean I'm sure you would say Miami players are better coached now under Richt than Al Golden correct?
obviously, but that doesn't change my overall point that I think its dumb to tout the sheer number of draft picks as the best stat to judge schools by
How good the players that go to a given school are 5 years after graduation is also not a good metric.
Championships should be the best metric to use.
I'll add this to Clemson's ACC count. Four in a row.
i don't know why we can't take value from both metrics here. neither are perfect or clearly indicate anything.
What's going on with your fan of section? Lose a bet?
Do we even have any umbc fans on here?
mods changed the UVA logo to the UMBC one.
Some glorious mod changed the UVA logo to UMBC
one of the mods changed our V Sabres to a UMBC logo and GoodForAnother has ignored multiple requests to fix that.
it's pretty tough when the most downtrodden fanbase on tmb can't even get a bit of grace.
#Cleveland Browns take the cake on that one
At least you have one winner in your fan of
Sounds made up
Something hilarious about this to me.
ACC Football Featured Prominently in Primetime

Four Atlantic Coast Conference football games – Louisville vs. Alabama on Sept. 1, Miami vs. LSU on Sept. 2, Virginia Tech at Florida State on Sept. 3, and Penn State at Pitt on Sept. 8 – will be televised in primetime as announced by ESPN.
The ACC will be prominently featured on ABC and ESPN in college football’s opening weekend, beginning with Louisville’s game against defending national champion Alabama in the Camping World Kickoff on Saturday, Sept. 1 on ABC at 8 p.m. The neutral site meeting in Orlando, Florida, is just the fourth matchup between the two programs since the Cardinals won 34-7 in the 1991 Fiesta Bowl.
A day later, Miami and LSU meet Sunday night in Arlington, Texas, at 7:30 p.m. on ABC in the AdvoCare Classic. Both the Tigers and Hurricanes are ranked in ESPN’s “Way-Too-Early Top 25”, with Miami in the top 10 following last season’s ACC Coastal Division Championship.
Wrapping up the opening weekend, Virginia Tech travels to Florida State for the ACC’s annual Labor Day Monday night game. As previously announced, that game will kick off at 8 p.m. on ESPN.
In the second week of the season, one of college football’s oldest in-state rivalries will be played in prime time when Pitt plays host to Penn State on Saturday, Sept. 8, at 8 p.m. on ABC. The two teams have met 98 times, dating back to 1893.
Additional game times and networks for the first three weeks of the season will be released in the near future.
Only one of those will be worth watching. VT @ FSU should be good. Louisville is going to get absolutely destroyed and pitt sucks.
Miami vs lsu should be interesting
What all did Miami lose from their D?
Starting DE, both starting DTs and #2 and #3 CBs.
