National Signing Day: (How did your team do?)

The "experts" like Alabama's class but I would trade several recruits for a couple of the quarterbacks that signed with other teams.

I like LSU's class a lot. Not looking forward to facing Shawn White at Auburn (but at least took Evans (from Auburn) away from Auburn. I also think Tennessee did very well.

Edit: Funny that SloverUT and I commented about 5 seconds apart.

Yeah, we're killing it today. Much better day than I expected. As usual, we've filled specific needs, and with Jeremy Hill bolting to the NFL, the addition of Leonard Fournette is a great pick up. I'm also really excited about Malachi Dupre, a really solid WR.

And this year further proves the point that the SEC doesn't rebuild, we just reload.

Yeah you guys in the SEC are killing it. Again. Like always haha.

I am pretty happy with the class FSU is putting together though. It's deep but they don't have that marquee guy. They have missed on a few so far (Humphrey, Prince, Dupree, etc.). Anxious to see the final tally when the dust settles. Ermon Lane and Dalvin Cook are pretty solid though, so I'm not complaining too much.

Looks like Ohio State did pretty well this year again. Went and got some serious depth for the Offensive Line. Was able to land another stellar class of linebackers and defensive backs. Recruited some serious weapons at wide receiver. What I like is Urban basically recruits a full teams in each class. Trying to get 4-5 lineman, 3-4 WR, 3-4 DB's, and 2-3 Linebackers. He's building a talent depth that OSU hasn't had in a long time. Even under Tressel they developed 3-4 stars, and played alot of seniors. Urban is just grabbing talent and speed each year and who ever does best in the off season gets to play.

what I really like is that he's taken two big time defensive players out SEC territory the past few years.

I don't think they will implement this proposed rule change about having to wait 10 seconds to snap the ball and I certainly hope not.

Seems that most people think Nick Saban is the driving force behind trying to get the rule through (and may well be the case). It's pretty clear that it's to his advantage to slow the offense down so he can get his defense in the best alignment with the best personnel, and he shows no inclination to simply join the ever-growing club of teams using the hurry-up to their advantage.

Trying to get that rule through under the guise of "player safety" with no evidence that it's a factor is laughable.

I agree it is total BS.

I haven't read the details of the proposal but I'm wondering what in the heck they propose to do at the end of a half or a game where every team plays the hurry-up...And if they have some exception for that, just who is supposed to decide if the hurry-up is warranted yet or not.

BS is right!!!

Surely it won't go anywhere.

last 2 minutes the rule is not in effect.

I was talking to a co-worker. He an I kinda like how basketball does it. How about changing the time-outs

2 full time outs

2 - 20 second times outs (NO TV TIME OUT ALOUD)

Basically it allows them to say, hey we want to slow down the tempo a bit, change out some players.

That would be a much more sensible idea.

I don't like the 2 minute deal because there are plenty of times when a team is down by more than one score where a hurry-up is warranted, and is used even by non-hurry-up teams, with 4 or 5 minutes left to play. No reason to impede the chances of exciting multiple score comebacks in the last few minutes.

    • @lastings I think this would be a good drill for you to spend some time on as I have gone thru something similar in my own swing. And@iacas can correct me if he thinks differently.  I would show us some video of you actually doing this drill to see if you are doing it correctly. It's not as easy as it looks at first. Good luck and stay the course, it's worth it.    
    • I don’t care for closed captioning in any TV show or movie. And I don’t watch foreign films because of CC. I have a hearing problem, and I have a device I can place in from of the soundbar that transmits sound to my devices, I also take it to movie theaters and place it on the chair arm, and if I can’t understand the dialogue with that, I just ignore it. I rented a Netflix movie A Man Called Ove by one of my favorite authors, Fredrik Backman, hoping for an English version, but it was closed captioned and I watched maybe 30 seconds of the movie, sadly sealed it up and mailed it back.
    • Jupiter is no joke. Starting with Jack who settled in North Palm years ago, then Norman, Price and Parnevik (who played at Palm Beach State) to name a few. This new generation really took it to the next level. Rumor has it the new Michael Jordan course (in Hobe Sound) is going to be something else and will be about 5 miles from McArthur/Medalist. The courses listed pushed out some previous greats such as PGA National (Ryder Cup, Senior PGA, Honda) and BallenIsles (PGA Championship).  One thing I will say is that in Palm Beach County, the level of talent here is insane. Even in the amateur ranks, scratch is a dime a dozen. My buddy owns a club fitting shop here and occasionally I have been hanging out and have met a PGA Tour four-time winner and a mess of McKenzie and mini-tour guys. The last guy I saw on trackman was a former master long drive champ tuning up for the Champions Tour who was hitting his 3 wood 305 carry.  Anyway, these guys featured run in a different circle for sure, but occasionally you will get a glimpse into their world, but places like the Square Grouper (slang for a floating marijuana bale) and the Abacoa Golf Club are very accessible. If anyone needs some recommendations for this area, hit me up. 
    • Well, you probably read my post on it. But I could not have been less impressed with the Garmin R10.  I saw one of the teaching pros at the range the other day using a GC3 during one of her lessons. I wanted to go get a closer look, but didn't feel right about interrupting the lesson being given. 
    • That's awesome.    Oh my goodness! This so reminds me of my dad. I started playing golf in my 20's and ever since I can remember my dad has carried more than 14 clubs. At one point I was lugging his huge-ass-cart-bag out to the car and I counted 21 clubs, plus a ball retriever. Hell, there might have been a Golden Retriever in their that damned bag was so heavy. 😓 Anyway, there was never any point in telling my pops that 14 clubs is the legal limit. His response was always the same "Ah, that's a bullshit rule." ... Honestly, how do you argue with that?
