    ...There's optimism that the dead period will end! If we had a nickel.

    Again, there was optimism prior to the previous time the dead period was extended through May 31 that a quiet period was going to be enacted. But this time it really does at least feel as if a quiet period, at worst, is going to come to fruition.

    Athlon Sports' Bryan Fischer reported on Monday night that the NCAA Division I Council is putting plans together for an end to the dead period:

    How real is the interest in Ohio State from Walter Nolen?

    How good is Lebbeus Overton?

    Can Damari Alston differentiate from other top running back targets?

    What kind of offensive lineman is Ohio State target Addison Nichols?

    Good stuff from The Athletic ($$)

    Small reminder why it really doesn't make a ton of sense to expand the CFP to 16 teams.

    This argument is circular. All the elite players are going to the schools who go to the playoffs because they are the only ones in the playoffs. If the playoffs are expanded, the elite players will spread to more teams because there will be more than 6 teams regularly going to the playoffs.

    I think it's more about NFL draft development to be honest.

    You do see specific position groups at schools not going to playoffs, that remain high in recruiting rankings at said positions, because schools are known for developing those players...I'm thinking a Wisky and O-lineman, Iowa TE's, Va Tech DB's, etc.

    I think your point has merit too....I'd just say if a team like OSU were consistently not making the playoffs, but their track record for putting kids in NFL remained the same, our recruiting would still be stacked. It's about who is going to prepare them the best to get to the NFL (and then have success in the NFL). To my last point, I think it's relatively important Fields has some success at next level, or you can guarantee we will begin hearing the negative recruiting about Day not preparing QB's for NFL success.

    Just sayin': Apparently this player wasn't on Ohio State's recruiting list; however, he gave himself a great birthday present, i.e. a full ride college scholarship, etc.

    Mom doesn't have to worry who's paying for Denzel's college education now.....:biggrin:

    Not going to put this rant in any particular kids thread but has there ever been a high school offensive lineman NOT noted for his "nasty streak"?

    What are they going to say, "he's really soft and passive for his size"? And don't even get me started on calling out how physical or "nasty" a guy is when most of his opponents are half his size.

    You don't know how "nasty" an OL is until he gets to college and faces guys who can hit back.

    /end rant

    Great point. Just like how defensive ends are always "high motor" guys.

    I disagree a touch....

    it’s the +2 mentality.....Urban wanted his guys prepared to play two more steps beyond anticipated whistle.

    I feel like these guys labeled “nasty” inheritently have that within them. I think when HS DL and OL get the label “nasty” it’s not just about’s about embarrassing the guy in front of them.
