Re: Andy Cannizaro

Shame on him. Thank goodness TD did a proper vetting . If you feel sorry for anyone feel sorry for his wife who is due with their third child this weekend. As for Gaut he was lucky to get a job back at this level. Like I told several people that was AC''s first big mistake as a coach. Funny how it ...

Re: Andy Cannizaro

Wow. That was quick. Personally, I can never understand how guys that have everything going for them - wife, kids, great paying job in a career they love - can risk it all just for a fling.

Actually, there's 3 different mock drafts in that article, and only one has Frazier in the first round. If he's not a clear first rounder, he needs to come back.

Re: Early Signing Period 2018

Ben Tate https://twitter.com/pbr_louisiana/status/963503112345571329 So we're giving out scholarship offers three years from now? He's class of 2021. Who knows where we'll be by then? I would think that given he's the number one recruit in the state for the 2021 class, we'll probably still want him.

Re: Baseball Pre-season Thread

A quick look ahead to this weekend. Wright State is no pushover. Won the Horizon League in 2015 and 2016, and projected to win it again this season. Made it to the Regional Finals both of those seasons. They are projected to make the NCAA Regionals again this season. https://twitter.com/WSUBaseball/...

Re: Commit #13 - Tyrick James - TE

Nice article from Waco Tribune referencing signee Tyrick James, TE from China Spring. Seems he's got some speed, because although he played TE, he actually had 90 carries.

Re: Melvin Frazier now projected 1st round pick

If he’s 1st round he’s going to go. Why risk an injury coming back? This. If he's definitely 1st round, he's gone. If not, he'll probably come back. There's a huge difference in the NBA in being a 1st or 2nd rounder. And if he's the leader of a breakout Green Wave season next year, it'll help his s...

Re: Football Recruiting 2018

I certainly agree with you that Fritz wants good students vs poor students. I was asking what I think is a legitimate one. As we’ve upgraded the recruiting talent and gone into some rural areas in Miss, Ala and Ga, are we takings more academic risks than we’ve seen in the past? By the way, I’m all ...

Re: Signing Day Thread 2018

Was just looking through the 247 list of signees and noticed a couple of things. We're currently #3 in AAC, and #66 overall. Now, UCF only lists 19 recruits, probably due to the coaching change. You have to believe they'll fill those spots up and maybe pass us up, depending on who's still available....

Re: Signing Day Thread 2018

According to Rivals, we had the fifth best class in all of G5. The only bad news is, three of the four above us are also in the AAC.

We'll end up with 20-21 3stars according to 247, and our average should be close to .8300. Best we've had since 2000 was a .8003.

Re: Football Recruiting 2018

Jax, if you' ve been following the recruiting all cycle, the players Fritz recruits have all been good students. Many have posted their GPAs and ACT scores on their Twitter profiles. Lots of 3.5 GPAs and 30 ACT scores. I don't think Fritz wants kids that can't handle the academics.

Didn't realize but Alfred Thomas is part of the ESPN300, sort of. For some reason ESPN has 296 players rated an 81 or higher, and then 4 players at 80 who make up the 300. Not sure what they used to determine which 4 players at 80 made the cut, because there's another 30 or so also rated as an 80. A...
