    You may be one of the dumbest mutherfcckers on here. I said that he had down numbers because his QB and their offense sucked. I used Cleveland's numbers last year to give you a relative benchmark of sh i tty QB play, which you could not comprehend. This kid from Miami was in a sh itty offense with a sh itty QB. So quoting shi tty stats is pointless. He's a huge target that can catch the damn ball.

    As for GMD, he was a well-liked poster who passed away.

      The kid had 12 receptions the prior year, with a QB that was good enough to get his team to #2 in the country at 10-0. You can slobber over a ewe with 32 catches over two years all you want, but I'll pass.

      So you're wishing death on me because I made you look like a dumbass. Better to argue with 100 idiots than have one agree with me never seems more fitting than now, you ignorant fvkk.

        No one is wishing you dead, just think it's a good trade. You might be the most sensitive refugee yet.

        Alky, cool it or you’re going on yet another vacation. The GMD crack was over the line.

          Looks like 2 of the 4 candidates for their OC are Larry Fedora and Major Applewhite.

            Wish we needed him, bc he's a big 6'5" guy. Would be stupid on his part to try and come here and compete with our group though.

              Hope they don't get Fedora for multiple reasons. I'd be more than ok with minor.

                    Didn’t Applewhite get ran out of Bama after the first year? Would not be worried about him at all. Fedora is a very good play caller though.

                      Applewhite sucks. That would be best case scenario

                        "To review: millionaire coaches can switch schools when and how they’d like — even twice in one month! — but high school athletes who were pressured into early commitments are tied to their schools."

                        This is not accurate. The coaches have to pay a penalty to break the contract, millions of dollars for elite coaches. In some cases, their new teams will pay the penalty. Some lower tier coaches get trapped by long-term contracts they cannot afford to break. The players can break their contracts. Slavery is not allowed. The price for breaking their contract is sitting out a year.

                        For most hs players, early signing is a plus since they can get the anxiety of recruiting behind them and focus on graduating. If players were allowed to break those contracts, there would be chaos. Players should sign with a school, not a coach. If they aren't sure they should not sign and take their chances a spot will still be open later on.

                          Going from a HC @UH to an OC @ UM would technically be a demotion, so wouldn't it be Captain Applewhite?

                            You’ve got to @ me or quote me. I didn’t see this for over 24 hrs. FTR, it wasn’t a GMD crack. I liked the guy, and wish he was still around. I wouldn’t crack on him. That’s just ridiculous.

                            I don't disagree with either of your points. A player should always be choosing a school, not coach(certainly not a coordinator). And I don't think there needs to be, or will be any changes to the players and their being locked in. The more we cave on that, the more these kids will just approach the whole recruiting process as a joke,which we're already seeing.

                            I just wonder how many of these cases it will take before there's a backlash. We could have 2 or more this year. To the first point, I've always felt that he NCAA kind of looks the other way in these resigning/firings because the player gets at least partially what they signed on for in terms of staff. The fact that some of these kids will never even see that coach again is pretty extreme, imo.

                            So basically, I don't think they'll relax restrictions on transfers. Rather, I think that if this becomes an annual thing, and especially if a bigger name like Saban gets burned(like the Safety he lost back to Mich this year), it may kill the ESD.

                            Had nothing to do with GMD personally, you want him to change places with someone who is dead. You know exactly what you were doing.
