    That part of North Philly really sucks although it's gotten better.

    Definitely still sketchy. But it's actually turning into something that resembles a campus.

    unfortunately, we spent a good portion of last season building for the future by committing to mehringer's system and working Oden into the mix. What a waste of time.

    This isn't a big deal guys. Oden can't play at this level. I watched him Saturday and the way he was throwing, you wondered how he played QB in HS. He likes reefer a bit too much. He would have transferred in December.

    Unfortunately yeah. At least Ash learned from his mistakes, but there were a lot of bad decisions made I wish we could take back. We'd have a better roster, and we would have won 2-3 more games.

    Yea I don't blame Ash for this at all, it makes sense. However, I do blame him for choosing to go all in on Oden over Pigrome who was a good player for a freshman last year. It was beyond obvious that he was better on tape, it just frustrates me when coaches getting paid high six figures to seven figures can't identify talent when one player they are recruiting for one slot is clearly much better than the other.

    Dont see how anyone but Ash gets blame for this. It was his first QB recruit that he went after hard so if he flamed out already it kind hampers the whole developmental aspect and "coach them up" mantra he was going for. And if he was never going to be good because he lacked the talent then its also a big hit because it calls into question his talent evaluation and scouting. Then to top it off it makes it seem like last year was even more of waste than it already was. Either way not a good look.

    Mehringer had full control of the offense & personally recruited the QBs - if anything, it's even damning of him & by extension of Ash, for hiring Mehringer.

    not a huge deal, if he was behind gio and allen, and then lewis he would be gone at some point later on. obviously pigrome was the better choice and we chose wrong but it happens. more concerned about mitchell injury, thats a big blow to a spot that we really cannot have many injuries. i dont get how hes supposed to return this year, that is strange.

    i do hope we bring in 2 qbs this year, one duel threat and one pro style. we need depth and competition

    So I've just been thinking about this...but uhhh we have a good amount of upperclassmen on offense this year along with 7 returning starters. This is how I see the starting lineup shaping up right now....

    QB - POSITION BATTLE
    RB - Robert Martin (Sr)
    FB - POSITION BATTLE
    WR - D. Mitchell (RSr)
    WR - J. Grant (RSr)
    WR - J. Harris (RSo)
    TE - Washington (RJr)
    LT - Cole (RJr)
    LG - Miller (RSr)
    C - J. Jackson (RSo)
    RG - POSITION BATTLE
    RT - Seymour (RSo)

    For the position battles, yes, it's possible Lewis starts as a frosh over a 4th year Junior or true frosh Devera at FB starts but both would be surrounded by a senior cast of skill position guys. RG is going to be an upperclassmen battle between Applefield, Krimin or Venesky. Everyone else is a 3rd year player or higher, that's pretty good. I know it will be their first year in another new system, but this is better than I thought. Then I would expect some true freshman skill position guys to play some O along with STs....Blackshear, Melton, etc.

    I'll believe our team can outplay expectations when I see it...but if we can get some decent QB play I think we can see some good play. Kind of like the bball team. Even when losing you had to respect us. Can Lewis be that guy??

    so i know there are tons of 4* recruits trying to commit, and the staff is just waiting on all of our 5* targets to decide :rolleyes:, but i really hope we land daevon robinson. his offer list indicates he is flying under the radar and i like his tape a lot.

    He is VERY under rated and that would be an awesome pick up if we landed him. So much position versatility. Has a former Scarlet Knight on his HS staff.

    No disrespect to RU-Omega Potato who is one of the good ones but why is the SN freeboard littered with so many freaking idiots. Like truly dumbshit people who repeatedly say the most assinine stuff. Is it really correlated with not being able to afford $9 a month means they're poor and dumb? I can't take reading their garbage 99% of the time.

    Perception. They quickly went to a bowl game after a 3-9 year and had a top 15 recruiting class. Smoke and mirrors or not...Perception matters a lot to kids. Ash did himself no favors last season.

    Very expensive property taxes. Older homes with charm. Columbia HS is good academically but not sure if it's a great school overall. Very short commute to NYC obviously. Think a lot of people in that town send their kids to private school. I'm looking at rich snooty towns where I won't fit in the next few years but Maplewood's taxes are just brutal.

    Taxes in Maplewood are indeed insane, and everyone there is super liberal and moved from Brooklyn, so congrats on being a stereotype. It's not really snooty though. You'll pay less in taxes in Summit (which I prefer to Maplewood, but indeed doesn't have the same vibe), which also has midtown direct service, or Chatham (good town but not as lively.) South Orange is basically the same town as Maplewood, bad taxes, slightly more trashy downtown. Madison is good-ish but an even further train ride.

    Montclair has a super liberal vibe too but not hipster, and is similarly expensive, and Glen Ridge is Montclair Jr. Actually, taxes in Millburn (not Short Hills, Millburn proper) are better and the downtown is ok, but living there will make you feel like your dad. Also, think about Cranford and Westfield.

    I'm from Montclair which is close to Maplewood and grew up going there a decent amount. It's a nice town that's pretty diverse but as Skoolie said the property taxes are killer. It has kind of an artsy vibe but it really is just a nice suburb. I would also check out Montclair because similar to maplewood but had a bit more going on as far as restaurants and things like that go. It just feels a little closer to Brooklyn than maplewood but both are nice towns. Don't look at glen ridge, it suck unless you want to feel like you are living in a country club.

    My girlfriend grew up in Maplewood and it seems pretty nice. Lots of stuff for kids and families to do. Disagree about it not being snooty though, especially if you walk around in your Rutgers stuff.

    hoping we pass on this quinnipiac transfer, but with pikiell's prior recruitment of the kid while at stony brook, i cant help but feel like it is inevitable that he comes here.

    Cranford has a lot of flood areas. I like Westfield a lot. Beautiful downtown with train service. Mix of newer and older homes. Also expensive property taxes but you're in Union county so they're not as bas as Essex.

    Thanks. Montclair, Summit/New Providence and Maplewood are the three towns my family has been looking at. Maplewood is high because that extra 15 minutes on the commute is big for me.

    What do you mean by extra 15 minutes? If you mean by train to penn station, then I would say if anything, Montclair is the same or maybe even slightly faster a commute if you live in the right area. The tricky thing with Montclair is that there are 7 train stops in the town so if you live on the north side, your train ride takes about 15 minutes just to get out of the Montclair area. But if you live downtown by the main stretch and take the Bay Street station (I consider it the main station of the town) then the commute is the exact time as Maplewood or faster by a couple minutes. In terms of driving, Montclair is also a little closer to the tunnel than Maplewood but the commute times are really very similar in most cases if you live by downtown Montclair. However, I will say the train schedule in Montclair gets a little weird on weekends if you plan on going in a lot. Not sure what maplewood's weekend train schedule is like.

    Sad Laurent is leaving, but the writing was on the wall with all of the minutes Thiam played this season. I wouldn't be surprised if we pick up someone quickly and slow play the last scholarship to see who might fall into our lap a la omeruyi last year.

    We're clearly trying to replace him with a wing like Cam Johnson or Shakiur Juiston, and then the next priority would be another guard to replace Nigel. Then who knows what happens with Diallo or Bullock. They could go after another C (and they seem to be planning to), or have Doucore reclassify to this year. That's another reason not to want Kiss, as he won't be eligible for a year, and they need that ship.
